About Me

My name is Cynthia.

I'm 50 and my kids are:
A (girl): 15
J (boy): 12
My husband is 52 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 also have no real need for stickers now that my kids are older and again... I don't do paper crafts.

Comment: Hi Cynthia Thank you for the PC in an envelope :( ...This book is on my to read list...no worries about the delay, life happens :) They have shut down all the libraries and I am at home and so so tempted to order more books online ...lol I swear I'm eating or shopping on line...crazy. Right now Im quarantined from mi teens and have another week to go...really missing my family , missing my hugs. Be safe Be loved Be Healthy peace love light
Response: So sorry it was one in an envelope. I will try to send you another one once all this craziness is over. They shut down our libraries too. Thankfully, I have a friend who works at the library who gave me the heads up early enough that I could go get some books for me and my kids.
