About Me

My name is Cynthia.

I'm 47 and my kids are:
A (girl): 11
J (boy): 8
My husband is 49 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:

Sainsbury Taste the Difference coconut chocolate bar

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 also have no real need for stickers now that my kids are older and again... I don't do paper crafts.

Ikran3 rated for IPS - Profile-Based Package Swap # 12 on Jan 31, 2017
Comment: Oh my goodness!!!! Thank you SO much for your fabulous package! When I saw the box i just thought you'd used it as clever packaging - it never occurred to me that the biscuits would be in there as well as everything else! I had some for breakfast! LOL I adore them - and everything else as well thank you! i'm off sick today so it really cheered me up and deserves a lot of hearts, not just one!! Let me know if you ever fancy a private swap! :)
Response: So glad you liked it. I love putting together profile swaps and would love to do a private swap sometime.
Comment: Thank you for introducing me to new artists/songs, Cynthia! I also love, love, LOVE Flight of the Conchords (one of the best live performances ever! still sad the series was so short-lived, but I respect their choices and hope they record their newest material), "Hey, Soul Sister," and "We Didn't Start the Fire" (one of my favorite songs to go running to -- I would try to sing the lyrics while going to work on stamina for performing :)

ladyjbug rated for Song Playlist with Prompts on Jul 27, 2016
Comment: Hi Cynthia. Thanks so much for sending. The first email ended up in my spam for some reason. I really appreciate you sending again. Great songs. I especially like the Flight of the Conchords one!
Comment: Got all the wishes! thank you so much!
Umdragon rated for week of tea nr.17 on May 23, 2016
Comment: Hello dear!!! thanks for your thoughtful swap!!! :) I really liked your tea selection, specially the chocolate-chai one! Also the way you put them in little boxes was really sweet, thanks for taking the time to do something nice for me! a warm hug from Chile!!! Thanks again
Comment: Thank you so much for all the chocolate in a cute little box (which I'm totally keeping for storage). And you did great research, we don't have any of these chocolates here and I look forward to trying them :)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely package you sent! You know, I don't have a doctor duckie yet in my collection so this was a great one you chose! And I didn't have a Canadian flag shot glass either! Thanks for the nail polish and stickers too. I really like gray but for some reason, I rarely buy nail polishes in that colour, maybe because it's such a 'non-colour' and all the other colours stand out more. I can't wait to use the foot scrub and face mask, I'm in dire need of some 'me' time! And I really appreciate the mix you made, I didn't realise City & Colour are actually Canadian! Anyway, thanks again for such a fab package!
Comment: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! xxx Wow! Such an amazing array of Chocolate! I haven't tried any of it yet, but I can't wait to! SUPER IMPRESSED with the after eight hot chocolate!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

Thank you very much for the wonderful monarch butterfly magnets for my May Wishlist! I can't wait to give them to my mom! It's really impressive that you managed to get such good shots of them, what with all the fluttering they do. :)
