About Me

My name is Cynthia.

I'm 50 and my kids are:
A (girl): 14
J (boy): 11
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.
- Jann Arden
- the waifs
- Sara Groves

  • Memento

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

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.

Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome package! I can't believe you managed to include both nail polish and whisky. I love it. And the packaging is super cute too. I really appreciate the thought and care you put into the whole thing. Thanks! (Side note: by non-traditional nail-polish colors I meant pretty much anything other than reds or pinks. I guess it's not really the case anymore, but, not that long ago, those were still the majority of the shades you would find.)

Comment: Thank you for taking the time to resend this swap 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! :)

Thank you so much for the wonderful generous January wish for the Wishlist Group! It went to my Massachusetts address before I got here--so sorry for the delayed thanks!!

Thanks so much for the washi tape samples from my January wishlist. I love having a variety to draw upon; it'll definitely get used. :)
