About Me

UPDATE: I am currently working on trying to get out all of the swaps that I have that are past due. After getting most of them ready with just a bit of shopping left to do, I had to have emergency surgery because of a massive infection throughout my lower jaw bone. I'm still in a large amount of pain, and have been unable to finish my shopping or go to the post office, as I cannot drive while taking the medications that I am on for the pain. I do fully intent do complete all of the swaps that I have signed up for. I have dropped all of the swaps that did not have partners assigned yet, and will not be signing up for anything new until those that I have to send out are sent. I hope everyone can understand this.

FURTHER UPDATE - 11/3/2008 I thought I was getting better when my infection came back stronger, involving the other side of my jaw as well. I'm back on tons of antibiotics and a constant stream of narcotic painkillers. I'm scheduled for surgery again at the end of the week.

Hmm...what's there to say about me? I work at an outdoor education facility where I'm the assistant director. I take care of all of our animals (owls, a hawk, an iguana, snakes, turtles, etc.) as part of my job. I love all things that have to do with the outdoors, boating, swimming, camping, hiking, etc.

Favorite Music

I tend to like pretty much anything, I listen to most radio stations, but not anything really loud or hard. My favorite artist right now is Matt Nathanson.

Favorite Books

I like to read non-fiction outdoor adventure books, as well as mysteries. I also love any educational book about nature or science.

Favorite Movies

I don't really like to watch movies - my attention span is too short, but my favorite movie is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - the original version.

Favorite Television

Anything educational, I like the history channel, cooking shows, science shows, but I also enjoy Grey's Anatomy and The Office.

Favorite Crafts

I spend most of my crafting time crocheting, but I also like collage, pressing leaves/flowers, beading, and trying new things.


I guess my allergies could potentially be relevant. I'm allergic to:

Note: Most of these allergies are to things that I would eat/put on my face. If it is something that doesn't go there, the only things that absolutely must be avoided are apples and hemp...those things make me die, and I kind of like being alive.

The basic plants, grass, trees, mold, and then some other weird ones: Hemp, Jute, Dust, Bell Peppers, Apples, Pears, Nectarines, Peaches, Lettuce, Cucumbers, Floral Fragrances

These things give me asthma - smoke, perfume, incense

Other Likes

Other random things I like:


Anything with owls


Cute Necklaces

Hair Ornaments

Crochet Hooks


Craft/Crochet Pattern Books


Peanut Butter


The color blue

Fun paperclips

Non-chocolate candy

outdoor/naturey stuff

and CHEESE...I love cheese.

Weird things that I don't like

I wouldn't call me picky, more just particular. Don't fret too much, if you send me something that I can't use, I'll just find someone to pass it along to. There are however, a few things that most people like that I don't. I'm weird like that.

I don't like:

Chocolate bars - I like candy that only has a little bit of chocolate, like peanut butter m&ms or snicker bars, but other than that, I really don't like the taste or smell of chocolate.

Caffeine - This means no coffee or teas with caffeine. I have a heart condition, and caffeine makes my heart beat irregularly, and you know, I've heard that your heart is pretty important to your continued existence, so...

Cookies - I just don't like them. I don't know why, I'm strange, ok?

Chewing gum - I have TMJ, and that just ends in pain and badness.

Scrapbooking things besides stickers - I love love love stickers, but I don't scrapbook besides that, and don't really have any use for other things.

Comment: I will change the rate, if I get it.
Comment: I hate to do this but it's been since Nov 1st when the swap was supposed to be mailed and I've pm'd you since then asking if you need some more time. You've yet to reply or contact me in ANY way. I'll change if I do happen to receive something from you. :(
Comment: I have tried to PM you. I see you have not logged on since 3 Nov 2008. Should I receive the swap, I will happily change the rating. This is my first one rating and breaks my heart to have to do it.
Comment: Thanks very much for the swap! I absolutely loved the cookies :]

Comment: Oh, Wow! I've never seen yarn like that! It's really ***neat***!! I already have a project in mind for it! And notecards that I can *always* use! And I've wanted to try that Starbucks chocolate but wouldn't pay the price to get it for myself! It was pretty much liquid when it arrived, but that's ok because it all stayed inside the package and will solidify nicely in the fridge. :o) Thank you so much for everything! That nail polish is quite different from anything I have and very appropriate for the season! Oh, my, I can't stop using exclamation marks!! Thank you!

Come check out the food discussions and wintry giveaways on The Edibles Swappers International Group! Hope to see you there soon!

I hope you're feeling better soon. I'm worried that you haven't logged on in awhile...

SweetClementine on Nov 19, 2008:

Hi there! I'm hoping that your medical issues have improved and that you'll be feeling better and back to swapping soon. I see you haven't signed in for awhile, so I'm getting a little worried about you. Let us know how you're doing?

pinkdiamond on Nov 10, 2008:

Hi Jana..Sorry to hear about your medical misfortunes. Get well soon.

SweetClementine on Nov 6, 2008:

Hi Janal14. I've just seen your update on your medical situation. I'm so sorry to hear what trouble you're having. I wish you the best for your surgery and a very speedy recovery!

vintervila on Oct 25, 2008:

Hello! I have PMd you but never got an answer and I really am getting worried about my package not getting to you (I am talking about the cookies and hot drinks swap). Please rate me if you got it and if you didn't please tell me so that I can resend. It was sent over a month ago and the other partner I had got it and rated me long ago so I am really worried about my package not being delivered to you. Thanks! Hear you!


SweetClementine on Oct 24, 2008:

Hi! I was just checking to see if you've received my Trick or Treat Candy Swap from the Edibles Group Swap. I PMed a few days ago but hadn't heard back from you and want to make sure you've received the package and are happy with it. Please let me know. Hope all is well with you! :-)

CrayonMom on Oct 2, 2008:
