About Me

First the business part:

I pledge to other swap-bot members to:

  • Rate for every swap I take part in.

  • Rate as soon as I am able to get on line after swap is received.

  • Rate Fairly, I will only give a 1 rating if a swap hasn't been received and that no contact has been made from the sender. I promise to pm member first to give them the chance to resolve the situation first.

  • I will only give a 3 if i feel that the swap didn't meet the requirements and that the partner choose's not to correct the swap.

  • I will not use slander or badmouth anyone when given a rating, facts is all that is needed when rating a 1.

Now, the personal part:

I am a Christian wife and mother. My husband and I met in college and we've been happily married 28 years now. We have 4 children, two biological sons, 26 and 22 and two beautiful Asian daughters, 16 and 11.

We also have a dog named Sampson. He is a Morkie - half maltese and half Yorkie. He is adorable.

My girls love to craft with mom - my youngest used to say, "Let's be busy, Mommy". My older daughter is a very talented artist - beautiful and talented, what more could I ask for. They are next generation Swab-botter.

Favorite Music

My music tastes are very eclectic. I love Christian music, Jazz, classical, blues, classic rock and roll. The only thing I don't get into is hard rock or indie.

Favorite Movies

My absolute favorite movie is "An American President". Outside of that, I love all the old Doris Day, Rock Hudson movies. White Christmas is my favorite holiday movie. I loved the National Treasure movies as well as the Steven Seagull Under Siege series.

I love all Disney movies (Frozen being the fav right now), animated or real.

If given a choice I would go to a comedy before I went to any other movie.

I enjoy a good shoot em' up action movie occasionally as well.

Favorite Television

I love CSI, Elementary NCIS, The Big Bang Theory and Bones and who wouldn't love any of the old Friends episodes.

My favorite old shows are The Golden Girls (they are my crafting ladies. I watch - I mean listen to them while I'm cooking or crafting.)

My youngest daughter, my hubby and I watch Diagnosis Murder quite frequently on the Hallmark channel. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Hallmark and Hallmark movie channel.

Favorite Crafts

I'll try anything once as long as it doesn't involve knitting or crochet (I don't want to say I'll never do it but I really don't care to learn at this point).

My Wish List

I would love to receive:

  • Beach items - if you find it on the beach, I love it.
  • Bookmarks
  • Books (board books, historical romances for me :-) )
  • Buttons
  • Ephemera
  • Foreign, text, pictures, postcards, stamps, etc.
  • Food crafted items
  • Labels from international food packages
  • Letters
  • Miniatures (anything tiny)
  • Papers, the more unusual the better
  • Photos
  • Random small items (things you have laying around that you don't know what to do with)
  • Stickers
  • Surprises
  • Tags

Things I do not like

I am not a fan of anything mytholical. I don't get into tarot cards, fortune telling or astrological signs. I do not care for dark colors. I don't like scary movies or being scared. Please leave off any skull, cross bones or anything related to death or dying. HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!!

Favorite Books

I love historical romances. One of my favorite authors is Lori Wick - but I've read everything she has written, I keep waiting for the next book out. My favorite time period is the American Frontier time frame ~1845-1916. But I'll read any time period piece.

I also like Christian Mysteries. They keep the mystery there but leave out all the unnecessary sex and violence.

Misc. Favorite Things

Color: Pink - any shade. Just about any pastel colors though.

Patterns: Polka dots and swirls

Nature scenes - I love to see God's beauty and handiwork.

Basically I am a girly girl and love anything frilly or sparkly.

Comment: Hello Tina, Your swap arrived just before Christmas and well..........being a nanni of 9 grandchildren life has been rather busy for awhile. But I love the book and was so pleased to add it to my "Must reads" over the next winter here, for now I will just enjoy our summer knowing your book will be there waiting for me. Now the tea was lovely but not all arrived as customs down here are rather strong on not letting anything in.....but that is Ok! I do give you a heart for thinking of me. "Happy New year" Lee-ann
Comment: Thanks for the CD. Merry Christmas.
