About Me

I'm a self proclaimed craft-a-holic that loves making things but then don't know what to do with them. I thought coming to swap-bot I could find others that I could share my creations with and learn new crafting inspiration from them in return. I love exchanges of all sorts and getting mail is one of my favorite things.

If you swap with me PLEASE READ:

rate

I promise I will always rate you IF I can figure out who you are. HAHAHA. Sometimes at first I will rate you just a 5 with no comment and then when I actually get INTO the mail I will update you to a 5♥ and leave you a comment.

Somtimes I get a stack of mail and don't have time to go through it right away, or I don't have time to do all the steps-- Figuring who sent, what swap, etc.

I Live in Wharton, OHIO 43359. There are 354 people in my town. We have no store, no gas station, no traffic light. We have a post office that is open from 7am to 10 am M-F and 7am to 10:30am on Saturday. That is IT! If I put something in the mail today it will NOT be postmarked for THREE days. All mail here is sent to Cincinnati before it is stamped.

I would appreciate if you are patient and kind. I always send early. I always send when I say. I mark my swap SENT when I put it in the post office box or hand it to Norma. After that it is out of my hands.

Favorite Books

I really like to read books off the YA book list. I find them more imaginative but with less of the over gratuitous sex scenes thrown into random places without it making sense.. (can you say harlequin books... sheesh We are running for our lives from crazy people but lets stop and have sex ..so dumb!) I really like Cassandra Clare and have most of her books. Dean Kootz, Janet Evanovich, Patricia Cornwell, and JD Robb (Nora Roberts) are some of my other favorite authors to name a few.

Favorite Tv & Movies

Anything with John Cusack in it... hehehehe. Thrillers, Mysteries, Anything Sherlock Holmes. Comedies like The Bounty Hunter, I really like Disney and pixar cartoons. I hate "male" comedy like Paul Blunt Mall Cop and Ted... Not a big Adam Sadler fan or Jim Carey's earlier stupid comedy. I do like his more serious (though still funny) movies. I love the Jason Bourne series and I'm a Jurassic park addict. Other favorites are Harry Potter movies, the Mummy movies and The Grinch That Stole Christmas.

Sherlock on BBC-- Elementary-- Vampire Diaries-- The Shadowhunters-- Pretty Little Liars-- Last Man Standing-- Big Bang Theory-- Fixer Upper-- Rehab Addict-- Lip Sync Battle-- The Originals-- Stitchers -- The Good Witch

Favorite Music

I love all types of music. Anything from Elvis Presley to Aerosmith :) I also enjoy music that if you saw me you wouldn't think that i would enjoy... lol I guess I am the poster child to the old adage, "dont judge a book by it's cover." On my playlist you will find a little bit of everything. Lady Antelbellum, Hinder, Theory of a Deadman, Eminem, Katy Perry, Tim McGraw, Maroon 5, Madonna, Taylor Swift, etc

Favorite Crafts

I love to make interactive mini albums. I've recently started making purse charms which I learned from NurseTara04 on youtube. I love shabby chic but I have trouble creating it myself. I don't like grunge..but I do like Tim Holtz papers. I do NOT like "weathered" items that contain rust or pealed paint. I know that is a popular style but it goes against my nature.. and I feel like I need to "clean and refinish" those kinds of things. I do like victorian style and i love butterflies and sparkly stuff.... lol

10/24/2017: I was recently told that my style I like is chic without the shabby. I like the sound of that!! hahahaha

I crochet, make jewelry, make purse charms, make cards, mini albums, altered art. etc

My newest fun crafting thing is that I am in love with making junk journals. In the past I was intimidated by the whole totally random creative process but now after doing a couple, I am hooked.

Swap-bot Requirements For Swap

I'm using this section to add things as I learn them on swap-bot or to add things that are a requirement for certain swaps... Example: Please have so and so preference in your profile prior to swap..

Postcards: I like them written on and stamped unless the actual swap is unwritten on and in an envelope.

For the Kid Stocking Stuffer Swap(s):

My son JJ is 5yrs old. He loves all things Thomas the train, Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig. He also enjoys collecting Hot Wheels. I am tryin to pick things that you can get for $1. I know a lot of the Walmarts have the Thomas mini bags for a dollar and I know you can always find Hot Wheels for around .98 cents. We don't want anyone to stress over picking things out for him. If you think a 5yr old boy will like it then we are good with that choice. He also loves stickers. Our dryer is covered in them..hahahaha

Likes and Dislikes

I will add to this as time goes by.

Likes:

Postcards (see details in postcard section)

Gorjuss girls

Metal embellishments

Bits of lace and ribbon

Purple & Pink

Washi Tape

Markers like Bic Markits or other small tip markers that are good for coloring those small spaces in adult coloring books.

Handmade Envelopes

Swap-bot Swap Cards

Small Journals or paper pads

I love when you share your stamps with me. If you will make me a stamped sample of some of your stamps on white cardstock in either black or colored ink and send it to me that would make my day. I really like Tim Holtz stamps but I don't buy many because they cost dearly!

I especially like unique stamped sentiments that are stamped in black ink on white card stock. That way I can cut them out and use them on future cards I make :)

Dislikes:

Scary

Horror

The colors orange and brown unless it's fall time and it requires those colors. lol

Please do not send me ephemera. I never know what to do with it and it usually goes in a "give" pile until I get tired of looking at it then I recycle it. :( Honestly I usually send these things right back out to my next swap partner. There are always exceptions to the rule like I got a baggie of bits and bobs of paper from a swappy friend for Christmas and there were so many cute things I am going to use. I like to make swap-bot swap cards and things I can use for that are fun.

Drink Likes:

I love tea especially flavored teas like raspberry or mint.

Drink Dislikes:

I don't like peach flavored teas or any form of green tea. If this is all you have that is fine. I will just save it to pass on in my next swap :)

Things I Collect

Lighthouses

Salt and pepper shakers

Playing cards with pictures on the back.

Elephants with their trunks up!

Miniatures -- if there is a mini for it, I love it

Best SWAP EVER!! I got this miniature bear in a swap one day and I wish I could have given the person 100 ♥s. Look how TINY it is :) The items behind them are made from marbles, so this will show you the scale of how small the bear actually is. SMALLER THEN A MARBLE!

I also love samples of all things. Hotel soaps, shampoos and etc. Travel sizes are awesome!

Postcards

I've started collecting STATE POSTCARDS. I'm really wanting them stamped and wrote on from the actual state if at all possible.

The TWO types of State Postcards that I am talking about are:

a) the ones with a picture of the state b) the Greetings from:

I will still happily accepts any type of state cards you send me because I truly love all postcards :)

I am also quite happy to get ANY kind of postcard that you wish to send me. I'm not really picky. I just listed State Postcards first so that those that like sending them know what I have already :)

Flaked Upon-Say It Ain't So!!!

Unfortunately I get to jump on the bandwagon of those that have been flaked upon. I now see the wisdom of having this section to list the flakees. If you see someone's name here it is because I had to rate them a (1) which is a total bummer!!! I always communicate thoroughly before adding a name here. :(
