Hi everyone. My name is Syndee, but my friends call me Syn.
I'm married to Tom, my best friend, and have been married 15 years (2gether 19). I'm a mother of 4 adult children (3 girls, ages 30, 28 and 25, and a son, age 26), and grandmother ("Mima") of 4 boys (twins Jakob & Kevin ages 8, Shaun, 5 and Gabriel). Just became mommy to a partial Bengal kitten we adopted on 6/13/12. He was found by a family at 3 weeks old hit by a car. The shelter we adopted him from nursed him to health and he's now a healthy, live-wire. Seems a Bengal breeder didn't like his white back paws, wasn't going to get $ for him, so she threw him out at 3 weeks. Most breeders don't care for the animals - they just want the money. Heartless souls.
I love coming home, throwing on my comfy clothes, and spending time in my craft room. I work as a legal assistant for a major insurance company in the legal dept (we represent the insurance company) and have been in the legal field for almost 27 years.
I always send my swaps early or a day or 2 in advance, and I always rate. I like to receive the same respect. AND PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE! RATE US COORDINATORS!!!
Have become addicted to Big Bands/Swing music lately and that's all I listen to now - love Eddie Fisher's "Anytime" and Fred Astaire's "Cheek to Cheek."

I've become addicted to chunky houses thanks to a swap by @debil They're now my second passion. ATCs (my PASSION!) (check out www.youratcstore.com for fab ideas and supplies), greeting cards, altered matchboxes, anything that can be altered (hosted an altered tin swap recently and had so much fun with it).. If anyone is interested in doing a private swap for ATCs and/or greeting cards, please let me know. I would love to do that with you.
I LOVE reds/berries; silver, glitter, metallic colors; I like purple because my oldest daughter got me hooked on it when she was a toddler.

I LOVE Ocean City, Maryland - my husband and I renewed our vows for our 10 yr. anniversary May 24, 2007 on the beach at sunset. Our 15th is coming up (May 2012) and we're going to renew our vows in Ocean City on the beach again!
I like kind hearted, caring, honest people. I'm a big Washington Capitals hockey fan. I LOVE GETTING PERSONAL HANDWRITTEN NOTES/CARDS FROM MY PARTNERS WITH THEIR SWAP. It's like getting a pen pal/swap in one.
I can spend hours (and too much $) at Michael's and AC Moore Craft stores, and youratcstore.com online.

I have a love/hate relationship with raisins. I don't like them in cookies or oatmeal, but I like them in cold cereal, Chunky Bars, and alone; mushrooms; tomatos-but I eat salsa! PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME KAIWAII, HELLO KITTY, DISNEY RELATED ITEMS. Rude, arrogant, know it alls; back stabbers; drama queens/kings; people who have children and neglect them
My children and grandsons are the most important people in the world to me. Of course, my husband is too . . . but I love my children and grandboys.
Be warned if you have @TryshaH81 If you're late, she will rate you a 3, EVEN if you send her a message, to which she will be rude and say you should have dropped out.
I've been flaked on by:
@lamira (Whimsy Jar-Fav Color) [and SHE hosted it!]
@carrie1010 (paper crafting - make your partner happy)
I was in a chunky house swap that @debil hosted. SHE was my partner. I sent it early, sent her 3 messages after 2 weeks of no rating, and she's NEVER responded, and I was NEVER rated. She's been partially suspended. I don't get these hostesses/coordinators who flake or don't rate.
