UPDATE March 2013...
I am in the midst of a major move from PA to NY state:) I am in between homes for a few weeks but hope to be totally moved by May. How this affects Swap-bot: I will not be hosting or participating in swaps until I get settled in my new home. Please do not remove me from your groups for inactivity :) I will be back!!! You can still keep in touch via PM's. I will be checking in and stay involved in the admin of EOTPF, CF, and Pennslyvania Swappers groups whch I am an officer in. THANKS for your thoughts, hugs and prayers during this time of transition for me...UGH!!!!! MAIL WITHDRAWL!!!! :( Peace ALL!!
UPDATE : January 2012
I have cut back on international swaps for now so if I have been inactive in your groups that is why, but I have not removed myself from your group if I am still interested. I also have become an co-founder in the Easy On The Postage Friends Group (EOTPF) so that is where you can find me hanging out for fun and giving stuff away :) Come join me if you are looking for cheap postage swaps in US only :)
...swap-bot has inspired me and I am going to expand my horizons and attempt a few crafty swaps...I will however do this in swaps that are friendly to us beginners so I promise not to offend you pros. I am a wannabe at heart and hope no one is disgusted by my attempts....I am open to constructive criticism :) Thanks!!
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother . I am a military spouse so Love my patriotic/Americana themes. We own a seasonal cottage in NY state that has a country flare (sunflowers, roosters and bugs with lots of "Grandma & Grandpa decor"...think books, puzzles, picnics, camp fires, journals (lazy days)!!! I'm into reading, gardening and bargain shopping...love watching movies with a big batch of buttery popcorn and walks in the woods! Always have a camera with me.
Mostly read fiction: Nicholas Sparks and Mary Higgins Clark are my absolute faves! Like mystery, suspense and romance. Christian authors are: Karen Kingsbury, Beth Wiseman, Beverly Lewis,Kathy Herman, Lori Wicks and Francine Rivers :)
Gardening deco (sunflowers, watering cans, birdhouses, etc...), cards & stationery, journals, office supplies (post-its any size, unique paper clips, push pins, colored gel ink pens esp. red/green, stickers). I really appreciate all things homemade and the talent that it takes to create :) I especially love altered or upcycled itmes focusing on reduce,reuse, and recycle!! (aprons from skirts, or pillow shams ,head bands made from men's ties, totes made from anything, PC's from greeting cards or fabric scraps...etc..) Sewing items (any threads, buttons, fabrics , scraps are fun:) Can never have too many windchimes!!! Kitchen items I like are: seasonal dish towels, pot holders, seasonal paper napkins (beverage or dinner size),seasonal sprinkles, magnets, gift bags . Drinks: hot chocolate (any flavor), Individual sugar free drink packets (like crystal light...NO TEA flavors!!)
Not too picky...just don't drink TEA or coffee.(hot chocolate lover...any flavor)!! and hot cider in the fall especially :)
Paper crafts, sewing and upcycling.
Collect all Nicholas Sparks movies , (a new one coming out in Feb. 2013..."Safe Haven" ) Like comedy , Holiday , romantic, and suspense,action. Kevin Costner is my favorite actor and Mare Winningham and Sandra Bullock are my favorite actresses!! Some wishes in this category would be The Blind Side, The Proposal, Courageous, The Vow.
I had not wanted to specify a favorite color due to having lots and usually like to be surprised but I have joined a swap that requires I nail it down so...my favorites are green and yellow (springy colors). I decorate seasonal so if you are in a swap during a specific holiday think seasonal (ie..Feb. hearts, Mar. St. Pat's, April, Easter...) Really just have fun with me year round and change it up!!! :)
Love doilies, jewelry (wire pierced earrings, bracelets and necklaces), tote bags, used books, wind chimes, owl items, bug items, bird themed, and gardening deco, unusual kitchen gadgets, patriotic, and love the banner flags for all seasons. My bathroom is combination of sage/hunter greens, my kitchen is a mix of amish and "give us this day my daily bread" (I make sour dough products)... snowman vs, santa, harvest vs.spooky.. Love CHRISTIAN THEMED anything (notecards, PC's, books, quotes, calendars,stickers,magazines).I may think of more later :)
