About Me

My name is Cynthia.

I'm 48 and my kids are:
A (girl): 12
J (boy): 9
My husband is 50 in case anyone cared about HIS age.

By the way, if you ever get me for a recipe swap I much prefer my recipes on 8.5x11" paper as I keep a recipe binder.

I am not very crafty but that doesn't mean I don't LOVE to get your homemade gifts. As well, I am comPLETELY fine with second-hand stuff (as long as it's in good condition).

I LOVE one on one swaps so if you see anything that piques your interest please message me.

Favorite Music

I love music. Much of my life is connected with a song. I often think one day I should put together a soundtrack of my life. I lean towards lyric-based folk music.

Just a few things I would LOVE

I collect cookbooks with a fervor that is unhealthy.

My Christmas tree is done in mostly with snowflakes, snowmen and stars. So, there's another idea for you.

And also, things that I've loved from other countries that I'd love to receive again:

Kex choklad

Haribo Chamallows

New Energy Cashew and Hazelnut

Lotte Salted Caramels

Milka Choco Break mit Haferflocken

But, honestly, I just love candy and chocolate. Salted caramel, marshmallow, lemon, coconut and chocolate, nuts and chocolate, tart candies...

  • I don't do much in the way of paper crafting. I've gotten a lot of scrapbooking supplies through swapbot through the years (extras in a swap) and they're kind of wasted on me so PLEASE don't send any. I also have no real need for stickers now that my kids are older and again... I don't do paper crafts.

Comment: I messaged you last month to tell you I was updating my swaps and hadn't received this one from you. you never read the message. I hate to rate for a swap this old but since you never even read my message I have no choice. I will relate you if/when you respond to my message.
Response: Haven't been on swapbot for awhile but I tracked down the recipe and email from over 4 years ago and resent it. Thanks.

Comment: Oh, what a wondeful package! Thank you so much!! I have never tried any of the sweets, so I'm curious to do that! :) The "Gobstopper" seems to be quite delicious - especially the grape flavor! :) And I'm also interested in trying out your favorite candies - the bananas look great! If you'd like to try out Polish sweets some day, just let me know and we can arrange a private swap anytime! :)
