I have been a member of swap-bot since July 2006 and I'm not going anywhere. So, if you have not received a swap or a rating from me....feel free to pm me and I will fix the situation quickly.
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I love purple (most shades, but especially eggplant) and sage green with gold accents for my home. But I love all deep, rich colors. I enjoy classic decorating ... nothing contemporary, country, or over the top. My home has a Tuscany flavor. Yep, pretty conservative for decorating. I collect teacups and saucers and I collect depression era glass. I especially like hobnail depression glass. I really enjoy gardening and have hundreds of flowers. I have to replant each year...except for the bulbs. I love wines (it's that whole Tuscan thing) and I enjoy wine accessories.
I really enjoy coffee and tea, but prefer to buy my own. I love Starbucks...all things Starbucks. I absolutely love handmade items. Since I am an atheist, I would prefer not to receive religous items. But because I respect others belief systems, you just might receive a religous item from me...if it is clear on your profile that you are ok with that.
My latest obsession is dotees and polymer clay. Why did I wait so long to try these? Having a blast with both.
Fruit scented anything.
I love handmade items
Gold not silver if it's for me, but supplies in silver are good!
Any supplies like dominoes, scrabble tiles, game pieces...just not junk.
Pressed pennies or any coin.
Teacups and saucers
Bottle caps - blank or your creations
Home Depot samples (tile, wood, etc)
Jewelry findings, gold or silver
Beads, seed beads welcome
Buttons (preferably with a shank)
Foreign Currency, coins
Linens (hankies, doilies, especially handmade)
Love the Fleur-di-lis
Hello Kitty for my granddaughter
Anything to do with autism awareness
Fingernail stickers or tape
Gems, adhesive or not
Scents: Vanilla, Cinnamon, Cookies: think food, not flowers
anything miniature for using on inchies and bottle caps
Scrabble Tiles!! Lots of them!
charms: gold or silver
Grapes and Tuscan theme is perfect
Monogrammed items with any or all of my initials VJP
AND if you have received something from another swapper that isn't your style and you think it is mine...please feel free to "re-swap"(like re-gifting). Please don't be offended if I re-gift as well. If this is an issue, just let me know up front.
I love technology. I do online scrapbooking and burn cd's for my kids and grandkids instead of printed pictures in books. But I still love getting embellishments of all sorts to use on my crafts and altered art. Although I love purple, please feel free to send any color for embellishments as I will use them on crafts for others.
I'm kind of picky about scents. Nothing too strong or flowery.
I am very open to trying new things, so even if it isn't listed here and you think I will enjoy...go for it.
Items I don't need or don't like:
Pastel or bright colors like neons.
Food, including tea and coffee
Post It Notes and Note Cards (I have tooooo many)
Candy, nuts, gum
Ribbon..I have more than I will ever use
Smokey smelling items
I don't care for rude, self centered, selfish people...which includes people who don't use their turn signal. But I digress...
Jazz, New country, and classic rock.
Michael Buble Harry Connick Jr. The Dixie Chicks
I have an ipod that is no where near full so I would love to receive CD's with lots of music. About the only music I don't like is Old Country (too twangy), head banging rock and nothing that even sounds remotely like rap. I'm definitely into 60's,70's, & 80's rock or pop. I love NEW Country and the Dixie Chicks are my heroes and my favorite band.
I never seem to find time to watch movies these days, but here are a couple of old favorites. Out of Africa, Casablanca, When Harry Met Sally...yep, Chick Flicks â‰ˆ
The View, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Gilmore Girls....and lots of News....CNN, MSNBC and more â‰ˆ
I have found some new crafts that I love. I am inspired by the wonderful items I see here on swap-bot and have tried some new ones. I love making matchboxes, bottlecap jewelry and magnets, bookmarks of all kinds including paper and silver, magnets, envelopes, cards, jewelry, inchies and so much more.
If you don't see your name here and I owe you something...don't be shy, please pm me. I don't want to miss anything.
