About Me

UPDATE: I am now officially moved, please send everything to the address now listed, if anything is returned to you saying that the address is wrong, please make sure you have sent to the new address, thanks!

I love to read, swap, listen to music, sip on tea or flavored coffee.Coffee is heaven in a cup, plus the only way I can function. All while cuddling my adorable dog! I am currently doing a lot of deco pages and reading a ton to relax. I am disabled with fibromyalgia and bipolar disorder. Jedi, my bichepoo (bichon frise & mini poodle mix) is my emotional support dog.

I will be moving at the end of March and will update my address around the middle of March so as not to miss any swaps.

I live in an apartment, with bf. I live in a medium-sized town smack between Milwaukee, WI, and Chicago, IL. The most famous person to come out of my hometown/current town of residence is Mark Ruffalo.

Favorite Music

Alt Rock above al particularly Panic at the Disco, Mariana's Trench, and Green Day Pop/Top 40- or at least I loved it in the '90s and 00's (think P!nk, Blink 182, etc) Pop-Country if that makes any sense- Like Blake Shelton Soundtracks- 10 Things I Hate About You, RENT (movie cast), and A Walk to Remember Soundtrack Broadway- WIcked, RENT (Broadway cast), and Avenue Q

Likes & Dislikes

Likes

Dogs and coffee are two obsessions of mine. I can name most dog breeds by sight or description. I love Starbucks!!

My favorite colors are pink, purple, teal, and mint green. I love books, chocolate, coffee, tea, and dogs, as well as anything to do with those things.

I collect coffee mugs. I also collect bookish items (my favorite are candles) as well as dog-themed items.

I like to play the computer game The Sims 4 and I am currently working on the legacy challenge.

I love candy, mostly chocolate, I prefer milk or white with some other flavor or a filling, caramel, mint, raspberry, peppermint, orange coffee.

I love candles, I really love the ones with sweet or book themed scents.

Tea: Herbal

Stickers: craft quality stickers, animals, food or drink, non-religious holiday stickers

Harry Potter anything! I'm a Hufflepuff

Dislikes:

Colors: greens-not of the shade mentioned in likes, orange, and brown.

Scents: floral or woodsy or smoke

Topics/themes: Sexism, racism, misogyny, harm to animals or children, religious items, homophobic; spiders or cockroaches or scorpions

Tea: Caffeinated

Stickers: Cheap or kids stickers, religious, puffy

I HATE when people send me religious items-especially promoting a specific religion or church. Please do not include or send anything religious including bible verses. I respect your religion please respect my right to not be religious.

Favorite Crafts

Any type of paper crafts (mostly mini pls, and decos), I have mostly have been focusing on the decos, and use scrapbooking paper, stickers, lace, edging, glitter, embellishments, photographs, greeting cards, and postcards.

Swaps

I click for having sent the item on the date I put it in the mailbox, even if it's a holiday or Sunday and it will be picked up the next day, so if the date on the envelope doesn't match the sent day, this is why.

If something doesn't arrive please contact me, and I'll do my best to resend, please try to contact me before rating me a 1 or 3. I will never not send something,

I will message you if I will be sending late, which will happen very rarely! I don't have a car, due to my disability, so my bf mails things for me or takes me to the PO, so if something is late that is probably why.

Coupon Wishlist

.Secret clinical deodorant, Dove Men's personal care items, Halo Top ice cream, Enlightened ice cream, almond milk, Crest toothpaste or battery-operated toothbrushes, Sensodyne Pronamal toothpaste, Rold Gold pretzels, Woolite delicate laundry detergent, Any free & clear laundry detergent, Halo dog food, Greenies dog treats, Cottonelle , Pasta or pasta sauce, Campbell's chunky soup, Zyrtec, frozen waffles, cheese sticks, pork or turkey bacon, beef,

Store coupons: Meijer; Hobby Lobby; Petco/Petsmart; Target; Office Max; Best Buy; Barnes and Noble; Books-A-Million;

Favorite Books Movie and TV

Dean Koontz, Marissa Meyer, Jim Butcher, and Ellen Hopkins are some of my favorite authors.

I love the Harry Potter series both the books and the movies, though the books were better! I also love The Lunar Chronicles series, The Dresden Files, and Odd Thomas series.

I like most YA books unless they have names I can't figure out with my dyslexia. I also enjoy sci-fi/fantasy and New Adult Romance.

My favorite movies are The Breakfast Club, Saved, A Walk to Remeber, Bring it On (only the first one), and many other 80s-00s teen movies, especially John Huges' movies.

Comment: Thank you for sharing your account of listening to Wicked Saints. I may well add it to my own list! I found your comments about multiple narrators interesting. I've only occasionally listened to books with more than one narrator and I think I might actively seek some out.
Response: Thank you for the heart! I'm glad you found my review useful!

Comment: Thanks for the labels. I read the instructions that there needed to be a variety of designs on each sheet, but I may have misinterpreted - so I am not rating down for that. I especially like the butterflies.
Response: Thanks for rating, I read it as that each sheet should have different designs as did the person who sent to me. I think it was a bit vague and a bit confusing.

Comment: Hi Jedi! Cass is sitting right here with me and wants me to tell you that you are absolutely adorable. She also says that you sound like a pretty cool cat, even for a dog ;) Like you, Cass was abandoned by her previous owners. However, it seems like you both found mommies who love you dearly. Thanks for the lovely card <3
Response: Thank both of you for the heart! Rescue pets are the best!

2019 Profile Hello #5 Hello there! I was just reading through your profile and smiled, The Breakfast Club is one of my favorite movies ! I really loved St Elmos Fire too (mostly the same actors but the addition of Rob Lowe 😜 I have loved him since the 80s. Also, Pretty Little Liars was a big fav for me too but I read the books and they did steer away from the books with the story but it was still a great show. I hope all is well with you and you are enjoying all the swap bots swaps. Looking forward to May flowers 🌼🌻😊😊

2019 Profile Hello #5

Good Morning!!!!

I hope this little profile message finds you doing well and in the best of spirits! I searched for something we have in common and I think about the only thing besides the way we mark our items sent is that you love dogs! I have a little teacup chihuahua. She goes every where with me even when I go on business trips! All of my patients love her and seems to brighten their days as well! Hope you enjoyed this swap and will join in more of the ones to come! Have a wonderful MONDAY! HUGS

2019 Profile Hello #3

puppies saying hello

Hi Colleen!

I hope life is treating you well and that you are having a lovely Springtime.

I'm so happy to see someone who loves dogs as much as I do. Especially someone who has a dog named Jedi!

I have a yellow labrador myself, Luna, and she helps me so so much with my anxiety. No amount of calming exercises could help me as much as my furry best friend by my side.

I love Panic at the Disco, Green Day, and Blink 182. I would play them non-stop in my early teens when my earphones were practically glued to my head ahaha!

I'm also a HUGE fan of Harry Potter! I'm a fellow Gryffindor but Ravenclaw always comes a close second.

I loved the first two books of the Lunar Chronicles and have been meaning to continue but at the time I was binge reading them my library didn't have Cress. I was heartbroken! But luckily all the other books on my to-read list were able to distract me.

I'm also a bit of a Sims 4 addict, I can spend hours upon hours on creating strange and wonderful homes for no one in particular.

I hope to see you around Swap-bot in the future, perhaps in a Harry Potter or dog themed swap!

2019 Profile Hello #3

Hi Colleen. 🙂

Dogs & coffee are two of my favorite things too! I don't have a dog, but I do miss having one. There's a dog park near my house and I love watching the dogs play.

What's your favorite kind of coffee? There's a local company here in the Bay Area called Philz coffee and it's sooo good.

Have a nice day!

Mel

2019 Profile Hello #3

Hello from NY!
Ahhhh! I let out a little yelp when I saw that Mark Ruffalo is from your town! He is my favorite superhero! I mean, I also like Captain Marvel, but Bruce Banner is my guy! So cool! I'm a Ravenclaw, but Hufflepuff is still cool! Harry Potter is still my absolute favorite book series (and movie too- but in agreement that the books are always better...but when are movies ever better? I'm not sure I've ever seen it happen?) Hope you are having a good week and enjoying your new digs!
