About Me

My name is Jeanette and I am 30 years old. I am engaged and planning a wedding for next September, that is how I found this site- looking for DIY projects. I have no children but I do have a dog and 2 cats.Right now I am a youth counselor teaching foster youth Life Skills, but I am looking for a middle school Social Studies teaching position, as I just completed my Masters degree. I have my BA in Cultural Geography & Psychology so people, religions, philosophy and sociology interest me. I have traveled to Portugal, Spain, Italy, England & Ireland and the Northeastern U.S. states as well as FL, Vegas, MD & DE. I love decorating for the holidays. Autumn is my favorite season and I have an awful sweet tooth, as you can see below. I am not allergic to anything but heavy scents like vanilla give me a headache. My dog, Moon Pie, is a 2 year old lab mix that weighs only 30lbs (I think she is mixed with Beagle). She is the cutest & sweetest thing in the world. She likes Nylabones, organic or homemade treats (pumpkin, sweet potato, peanut butter) and deer antlers. She likes rope bones, playing tug of war and going for walks. She does not do well with soft or plastic toys- they usually last a couple hours to a couple days.


*Dogs! Especially Labs & Dog Stuff (toys, treats)

*Wedding Stuff (magazines, books, inspiration)

*Items from other countries. (I love to travel & learn about other cultures)


*Stationary & Pens

*Holidays- All of them!! (Decorations, Ornaments, Wrapping Paper, Blank Cards etc..)

*Decorative Picture Frames

*I am collecting wine corks (real cork not plastic) for a wedding project

*Candles- Scents I Like- Cinnamon; Gardenia; Strawberry; Peppermint

Dislike- Lavender; Patchouli; Vanilla

*Cooking Stuff- Books/Recipes; Tools; Dish Towels etc..



*Tea- I prefer Black, Green and Japanese Flower teas. I don't like the sweet fruity teas.


*Favorite Colors: Dark Purple; Reds

DISLIKES: *Coffee (I don't drink it) *Butterflies *Hello Kitty- Soo Obnoxious *Anime *Coca~Cola *Cigarettes *Broken or used stuff

Favorite Television

I watch too much TV *Big Bang Theory

*Modern Family, Suburgatory, The Middle, Happy Endings

*Law & Order SVU



*Desperate Housewives

*2 Broke Girls

The only reality shows I watch are cooking shows (Top Chef; Iron Chef; Food Network Challenges) and Project Runway

Books & Movies

I love to read and I read lots of different things. I like biographies & autobiographies (Always Looking Up-Michael J Fox for example); I like suspense/horror such as Stephen King. I enjoy historical fiction as well.

I love movies. I will watch pretty much anything. I collect classic horror movies (Halloween; Nightmare on Elm St; Amityville); I also like comedies, dramas, suspense and historical fiction or documentaries.

Candy Profile

Milk or dark? Milk & White!! I don't care for dark chocolate.

Nuts?No, Thank You. Unless they are in a Cadbury Fruit and Nut bar- that is the only exception.

Flavors/fillings you like mixed with your chocolate: Caramel, nougat, raspberry, raisins, toffee

Comment: I'm sorry but the re-send you claimed to have sent out on the 10th is still not here. If you did indeed follow swap guidelines and use a "small flat rate box" then it should definately be here by now considering it's priority mail. It could possibly still be in transit if you used a regular mailer, but since that goes against swap guidelines I'll rate you a 1 until I get it...if I do. I'm quite upset that I had to contact you and tell you that I'd be rating to get you to acknowledge this swap...it shouldn't be that way. Life get's in the way and I totally understand that...and I would have gladly worked with you on it, but you should have contacted me first. I'll gladly re-rate if and when I receive this swap from you. UPDATE 2-18-2012: Thank you for the candy. I really liked it all:-) There wasn't a piece that I didn't like! You promised a re-send on the 10th and the box was postmarked on the 16th which is ironically one day after I rated you a one...is that just a coincidence? Please don't use family health as an excuse or reason for late-sending. I no longer have sympathy for statements like that considering my fathers exhausting and terrifying battle with a brain tumor, surgery, etc. If you really have that much going on then you need to re-evaluate if Swapbot is right for you. Like always communication is key. Were you really to busy to take three minutes out of the day to send a quick PM to me letting me know you were having troubles? I would have gladly worked with you and waited even a month or more + for this swap if you had only just had the consideration to contact me instead of ignoring it. The burden is not on me to have consideration for a swapper who showed none to me. Happy Swapping!!!
Response: "Life gets in the way"? LOL!!! I think you need to reevaluate your priorities if swapping is so important to you that "life" gets in the way of it. I'm sorry that my family in the hospital inconvienced you and delayed your box of candy. It was ready to send on the 10th, but I kept getting to the PO too late (I also work 2 jobs) & I forgot to change the send date. I am not on Swap-Bot every day, it does not eclipse my life. I do not flake on the swaps I sign up for though, b/c I have been flaked on & it is not right. I'm sorry it was so late, I feel terrible about it but I hope you enjoy it.
Comment: got the book today! thanks :)

Comment: Thank you so much for the awesome package of goodies. None of the candy I've seen for sale here and I'm loving the Swedish Fish (most have been eaten now!). My partner got excited when he saw the Kool-Aid as he's always wanted to try different flavours of it but it's just not available over here. And, of course, tea is always loved! <3
Response: Happy you are enjoying it! Swedish Fish are one of my favorites- but I think the Hot Tamales may be even better :)
Comment: perfect for my Bucs fan - thanks!

Hi, just a quick note saying that I have not received the shared recipe book experiment yet. Could you let me know when I should be getting it? Thanks. Jennifer.
