Odds and ends

I am a 42 year old, mother of 2. I have a 24 year old daughter, a 19 year old son and my adorable grandson just turned 4 in May.

I don't feel 42 (What is that suposed to feel like anyways?) .

I like yoga, and organics, health food and natural cures.

I love to cook! All kinds of soups and salads, anything Italian or Mexican, and I also like baking cakes and cookies and pies....any dessert, really :)

I like any kind of chocolate and caramel!

I have spent the past 4 summers in Eirope (Latvia specifically)...this summer was the first time I have not been there for awhile and I missed it terribly. Hoping to go for at least a month next summer.

Purple is my favorite color. Also I like green, brown, white and light blue. And maroon, how could I forget maroon?

I like nature......walks in the woods, swimming. I like picking berries and mushrooming. I garden. Veggies, fruits, and flowers, I love it all!

Lipstick and earrings!

I like dogs and other animals, but cats not so much! I like frogs & sheep.

I believe in angels! I am a Christian but have a stroong interest in Eastern religions and Native American traditions as well.

I love white tulips.

I like mushrooms.

I love to read! Non- fiction is mostly my favorite but I like John Grisham and Steven King as well. Also the classics and Emily Dickinson.

I can be girly or outdoorsy, just as at home in jeans and t--shirt as a little black dresss and heels!

I love bargain hunting and thrift shops.


I am just starting to get into my "crafty side with the altered journals and what not. i have a craft box, but it is EMPTY! Anything that could hel;p me fill it would be great. Cute stickers, artsy items, decoupage items..glitter, feathers, buttons you name it...PLEASE help me fill my box!

Actually..............anything altered like recipe cards, mirrors, tins, boxes or whatever your specialty is!

Note-cards..any kind , with envelopes , or pretty stationary paper.

Socks! I love new socks and can't get enough of them. I don't like footies, I like regular socks.

I would love aprons, kitchen aprons, I collect them. Homemade or store bought.

Any Bento boxes or accesories.

Tote -bags

Cute hats....NO baseball caps please!

Cute book-marks.


Any make-up or beauty product samples, including but not limited to hair care.

Refrigerator magnets, any theme. Again, I collect them.

JAPANESE ANYTHING! Just starting out And I am in love with alll things Japan!

Silver/turquiose items.


Lip -stick, lip-balm......anything burts bees or natural products would be great, but it doesn't have to be. Light flesh-tones to dark browns and maroons. No reds/oranges or pinks.

Scarfs...the light airy kind, not the heavy winter type ones. Purples, white or black or white/black combo or dark brown or a pretty print. The kind you would wear around your neck (think Euro-style) or wrap around your head.

Ink pens. I love nice, unique ink pens, but the ink has to be blue...or purple or green. Even red is OK. No black ink, I cannot write in black ink. I don't like gel pens. I do like scripto colored markers.

Any candy excluding anise and black licorice.

Real English toffee.

Chocolate, but not with orange or raspberry/strawberry filling/flavorings.

Barettes.headbans, hair accesories

Any types of teas.

T-shirts.....thrift shop or the more unique the better. Size medium or large.

I like color-books and crayons (crayola!)

BOOKS or magazines. No romances, I like reading about religion, history, biographies, science, yoga, nature, also crime and law. Anything English language, as I can't get them here!

Any type earrings...hoops or studs , small. large it doesn't matter ......pierced ears.

Anything native-American related, Tao related or budhist. , Yin-yan, .....I am very interested in the Eastern religions.

Bamboo items.

JUST SO YOU KNOW..............

I promise to send any swaps I join and I promise to rate every one I receive. I expect the same consideration in return.

I prefer quality over quantity. Let's not send each other junk!


The color gold.

Black licorice, anise, clove


Dollar-store items

People who don't take time to pay attention to my profile before they send.

NO teacher reward stickers.

No childish items, unless specifically requested in a wish list or other.


Comment: sorry it took so long to rate you
Comment: At this time I am giving you a one, after trying to make contact, and not receiving any corresponding answers, I am sorry for the bad rating. Its been a while since you have been on this site. I hope every thing is ok.
Response: Hi! I sent your package out ages ago, did you not receive it? I have never had a package get lost before, I just assumed everything was fine. You are correct in that I haven't been on in awhile, that's because I am dealing with too many issues at home with my elderly father with dementia....so I just mailed out everything that was due and haven't signed up for any more. I do not see any messages where you tried to make contact, but oh well. I will gladly send out another package to you, so sorry you did not receive it . I'll get it in the mail next week. Sorry again, I just never even thought that you wouldn't get it, like I said I have NEVER had any problems on here. My first 1, that kinda sucks.

Hi, just a quick note saying that I have not received a package for the swap anything you want to send. It was to be sent out by Feb 4, and now its march 4, Just wanted to give you a head up before I rate. Thanks, Lemortn

CrazyCatChick on Jan 3, 2012:

Thanks for the great romance book, she is one of my fav authors!!! Can't wait to start reading!!!

Vanillacreamteas on Oct 20, 2011:

Heya Hun, I didn't hear from you in a while so I didn't know if you had got the package yet or not. So I changed the date so you couldn't rate me bad in the mean time. That's all, I was afraid you wouldn't reply ever and just leave me a bad rating. That's ok hun I really don'tind resendinh another package anyway. X

Stefanija on May 20, 2010:

Starsnow on May 7, 2010:

Thank you for your kindness in sending the bracelet and amethyst it brightened my day

Hippiechick1955 on Apr 1, 2010:

I see from your profile that you enjoy bargain hunting and thrift stores. There are two pretty active groups that you might want to look into.

Thrift Store Junkies and Thrift Store Treasure Hunters

Both have some pretty fun swaps. Hope to see you there!!!

My Mom was so pleased with the St. Patty's Day card you sent to her for a RAK! Thanks so much! Talyn

tex82 on Apr 29, 2009:

Hi, I sent your spices today. You will think its strange the note outside the envelope "inside: paper and scrapbook stuff" Its my way to fool poststore because they say thats not possible to send food using doc cheap postage.

best wishes

Stefanija on Apr 21, 2009:
