MY THOUGHTS ON RATING. I feel that if you sign up for a swap, you should have the common courtesy to rate your partner. And if for some strange reason, you feel you don't have to (which I think is rude not to), you should at least thank them. If someone sends you something, you say THANK YOU! I am very tired of people being unappreciative.
A couple days short of being an original member. ha, ha. That always bugged me.
I'm an odd combination of a person. I am a stay-at-home, home schooling mom; but I also am licensed to drive a tractor-trailer and support my Second Amendment rights by being licensed to carry concealed as well. I love writing/swapping with my 50+ penpals, scrapbooking, angels, fairies, Orange County Choppers, summer, happiness, sunshine, Sanrio, gardening, bunnies, dancing, decorating, chunky shoes/boots, laughing, coffee, etc. I have 3 boys (born '04, '06, '12) and a baby girl ('16). Mail of all sorts (except bills, of course!) lifts my spirits each day! I really enjoy corresponding with happy, creative people who are optimistic and upbeat. My favorite color is purple, but I like pink, too. I'm a summer girl--I love tank tops, Daisy Dukes, flowers, sunshine, hot temps, sitting on the porch, gardening, etc., etc.
I grow my own herbs and make my own teas, tinctures, syrups and other medicines. I also make lip balm, salves, lotions and soap. I sell some of these items on my Etsy store, if you're interested.
FOR MY COFFEE SWAPS: Ground coffee, regular or flavored is fine; NO banana flavors please.
I'm a little fun and a little crazy...like this:
Big & Rich, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackberry Smoke, Van Zant, Pink, Aerosmith, Gretchen Wilson, Josh Turner, Tom Petty, Shania Twain, Sheryl Crow, etc. I really like Miranda Lambert, too. She thinks like me. :) I mostly listen to country and southern rock anymore. I like my music to be positive and upbeat.
Coyote Ugly, Sweet Home Alabama, Pretty Woman, etc.
Duck Dynasty, NCIS, Friends, American Chopper, Becker, Everybody Loves Raymond, Alaska: The Last Frontier, Ice Road Truckers...
knitting, sewing, quilting, scrapbooking, decos, matchboxes, handmade cards, anything with my kids, as I'm homeschooling them.
Oh, and I LOVE Jolee's stickers, and they're very hard to find here in the boondocks. (Hint, hint!)
I've just gotten into smash booking, as well, so anything I could use in this would be great! As I mentioned, I love stickers. Anything Harley-Davidson, baby girl or boy related, family related, etc. As long as it isn't junky, I'll probably use it.
I also love to decorate. We get all 4 seasons here, and while I love summer best, I always decorate for the different seasons/holidays. I love to make (or buy!) seasonal decorations.
Bananas, Ginger Ale, negativity, cold weather, phonies, etc.
I am homeschooling my kids, and we have a "Treasure Chest" that they get to choose treasures from after they get so many stickers on their charts. I would gladly welcome any "novelty toys" for this chest. (Bouncy balls, matchbox cars, bubbles, rings, pencils, tiny note pads, etc.) Please make sure they're in new condition, though, as these are for little kids. Thanks!!
I can't sit still! Which would probably be the reason why I am a tad too thin and don't have many favorite movies! Ha! I have to be busy all the time!
I'm a cleaning freak! I have to clean every day...I sweep the floor at least once a day, usually more! Uhh! My brother used to call me "Monica"--as in "Friends" Monica!
I don't like chaos. Everything has to be "just so" and quiet (for the most part). I just don't do well under pressure.
I do like to read, though rarely have time between tending to kids and, yes, cleaning! Ha! But I like romance novels, mysteries, history, etc. Not real big on magazines, though.
I collect any and all Harley-Davidson items; especially shirts from various cities/states with the location on them, kitchen fairies, wind chimes, angels, doilies, pretty handkerchiefs, and coffee mugs. Also, I love hair accessories; especially big scrunchies and hair wraps. (For riding, of course!)
I am a Christian, take my kids to church every Sunday, and read a bit of the Bible daily. I don't judge, and love having friends of all sorts, though. So please don't hesitate to approach me, even if you don't agree with me.
