About Me

I am very excited to be part of Swap-bot!

I live just outside of Atlanta but am originally from NJ. I am a flight attendant, and my favorite trips are international.

I have lived in London, Paris and Durban, South Africa (and miss it a lot!).

I love to knit! I love and appreciate all handcrafts of any kind. I have a large balcony, and when I am home I enjoy sitting there watching the world go by. I also love to spend time decorating my apartment.

My favorite colors are purple/periwinkle blue, acid green, pink and red. I love tea, anything retro and gum (that's new--don't know why!!).

I appreciate receiving anything in the mail--it brightens my day, since we don't use 'snail mail' as much as we used to.

Likes: tea, coffee, anything retro/vintage, gum (especially bubble gum), candy, handmade soaps, knitting, local postcards, origami, hand cream* (please see dislikes), lip balm* (please see dislikes), crochet (I'm trying to teach myself!!), anything international, anything handmade, anything recycled, any skin care or bath products that do not contain petroleum. I also love to cook! It relaxes me after flying and because I eat out so much when I'm working, I really love a good (or even bad!) home cooked meal.

My Wish/Dream List (a work in progress):

-- Fun tape measures -- A 2012 Mini Cooper S -- Knitting needle gauge (why can I not find any of the ones I have??) -- A tall, dark, handsome and kind man with a good sense of humor who is emotionally secure -- Fun knee socks -- World peace -- Size 6/0 glass beads -- A cure for cancer -- Dotee faces

I will try hard to please my swap partners. :D

Also, I pledge to rate. I don't work and live in the same state (there's 1,000 miles between the two!!), so as soon as I can get my mail I will rate! Truthfully, guys, I put a little piece of me in all my swaps and to not get a rating doesn't feel good. The only way I know you got my package is when you rate!

Favorite Music

I am starting to get into country, which I have never done before! I like classic rock, easy listening, pop and classical. I have to admit, I am really liking Hoda's Playlist selections, including the hip hop stuff (it may be an age thing--you know, getting older and trying to embrace it!!).

Favorite Books

The Secret Garden, The Bible. I'll think more about this and add to it!

Favorite Movies

The Reader, Medicine Man, Immortal Beloved, The King's Speech, Red Violin, Couples Therapy, My Cousin Vinny (a true classic!), The Holiday, Love Actually, The Help.

Favorite Phrase

"Keep calm and carry on".

Favorite Television

That's easy--Modern Family. Project Runway. Pan Am. Also The Fabulous Beekman Boys. :)) And pretty much anything on HGTV.


Paganism, vampires, bloody stuff and profanity, anything "adult themed".

*I love all toiletries and bath products but I don't use petroleum products.

Comment: I have contacted you several times concerning this swap. You were going to make another dotee after I contacted you I never recieved anything. After a few weeks and I still never recieved anything I contacted you again at which point you stated you forgot and would send the replacement dotee and get the confirmation number or tracking number. I then told you I would give you until the end of December to do so due to the holidays. I have yet to get a dotee or a confirmation/tracking number. I tried to aviod a low rating as much as possible, however I still have been jipped o out of a dotee and its especially fustrating when I even hosting this swap. Since it is now January I am leaving this rating, however I will consider changing this rating to a 3 if I ever get anything.
Comment: An overload of lovely cards! Thanks SO much!!
Comment: thankyou for sharimg your story.. Happy Holidays
Comment: Your grandfather sounds like someone I would have really enjoyed getting to know. Hw good that you had him for so long! Love NEVER dies.
Comment: I'm brand new at this but I gave a heart because of what the swap is about. It's tough sometimes to write about the ones we love and have lost =)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the cards! <3 Merry Christmas!
Response: You're welcome! Merry Christmas!!

Comment: I got the scarf today and loved it. I especially loved the multi-colored yarn that you used. Thanks for sending the yarn wrapper with it. Hubby loved it also and that does say alot...lol....
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I sent the wrapper so you'd have the care instructions. It was a really fun swap--thank you for that!
lindar rated for Christmas Stocking Swap! USA Only on Dec 12, 2011
Comment: Thank you so much, I haven't opened all my packages but I love what I've seen so far.
Response: I'm glad--it was a fun swap for me. Your profile made it really easy (lucky me!!). Merry Christmas!!
Comment: Thank you for the extra cards, I'll save them for next year. Don't know about the pencils / erasers you refered to in the card as there weren't any in there. I do love MoMa, I'd go again if I could!
Response: You're welcome! When I read your profile, I laughed so hard about the pencils and erasers I just HAD to tease you about them... :))) Merry Christmas!
Comment: I love the yarn, thank you so much! This is a very thoughtful package and I love it!! Best wishes for a Happy New Year!
Response: I'm glad you liked it!! Thanks for the heart and happy knitting!!
Comment: I expected an oatmeal box of goodies and received way more! Thank you! I am trying to be good and not open until christmas.... The heart is for the yarn package! (it was not wrapped so I was able to enjoy it immediately!!!)
Response: I know (yarn package!)! I tried to mash it all down in the oatmeal container, and it worked once. After I wrapped everything I tried it again and it didn't work so I unwrapped the yarn package and just put it in tissue. A long story to say, I'm really glad you liked the yarn part--I hope when you open the rest you'll enjoy it even more. Thanks for the nice rating! Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thanks so much for the GREAT package. I should have waited till Christmas BUT!!! just couldn't. I just love everything and am already using my new needles. Take care and hope to swap again someday.
Response: I'm really happy you liked it! This was a great swap idea and your profile made it really, really easy. :)). Thanks for the heart--Merry Christmas!
Comment: Oh thank you so much! I wish I could knit as well as you! We are looking for places to hang them out of jumping reach of Bruce the Wonder Dog, because we love your ornaments so much. Thank you for the extras. Big hearts to you. :) It was well worth the wait. :)
Response: I'm really glad you liked them, Suzanne! They were great fun to knit. I always wanted to do a mini-sweater! And Bruce: "Down, boy!" Merry Christmas and thanks for the kind words.:)
Comment: Ty! The cards are super adorable and I love the peace sign cover =D!
Response: You're welcome! Thanks for the rating and Merry Christmas!
Comment: I did receive your swap, however, I had no clue as to what it was. It was sent in a flimsy un-padded envie , so when I did get it, the envie was ripped, the aluminum mushroom can was almost smashed flat, and a baggie of fiber fill was hanging out of the can. There was some fabric with it, but had no clue what to do with that. I gave you chances to rectify , but not once did you say you would make it right... You basically told me to look at your other ratings , but rate as I felt I needed to. I do not enjoy doing this :( So in the spirit of Christmas, I will give you another chance, if you want it.. Photos of this swap is on my flickr .

Hi Shaaron,

What a great swapper you are! I'm so happy with my yarn. I know I'll love knitting it, and my feet will be so pampered in this deluxe yarn. Thank you, again.

i automatically knew it was from you even without the note :)

No one fought over the toothbrush. My oldest had a friend spend the night that evening and we gave it to him because he forgot his. ;)

I love my flight attendants when I fly! You guys and gals definitely do rock! I'm an "outside of Atlanta" girl too :) And I'd be up for a private swap with you sometime too.

A belated "Welcome to the 'Bot!" :D

earthnk on Sep 18, 2011:

Stopping by to say you Flight Attendants ROCK!!! I've just returned home after flying all over the Middle East and Africa and you guys and gals made my travels so much easier. I'm guessing you based out of the ATL might mean you're a Delta gal:-) Please holla if you wanna do a private swap. I'm game. Kaye
