About Me

IF YOU DIDN'T GET A SWAP FROM ME, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I'll be happy to send you a replacement!

FYI: I try to rate as soon as I receive the swap but I get delayed sometimes. I usually am up-to-date on rating swaps. At this moment, I am going through my sent swaps to see if I did perhaps miss rating any swaps I have done since I first started. I am rating this swaps now because I know I did receive them on time with an apology for my tardiness and having somehow missed them in the first place. PLEASE let me know if I have missed rating you for any swap and I will rectify that immediately. Thank you. - 8/16/17

I just want to let everyone know that I try to hit the sent button as soon as I put the swap into the mailbox. If some reason I forget to hit the sent button, I do it as soon as I realize. This happened this morning(1/26/17) and I let my swap partner know why the sent date was a day late. I understand completely if that is a reason for not being allowed in a swap. I am cutting back on swaps this year to mainly group related ones to be able to focus on my own problems in life right now. Please let me know if you have any questions about swaps future and past. I am going slowly though swaps to ensure I have rated everything I received so I apologize in advance for any late ratings that I am just getting to now.

I do not have a working computer at home. I print everything on campus except if I already have it printed at home.

My name is Karin. I work for UMD. I do not drive so I do not travel much. I am a Leo. I do like to dance, read, write, walk and make lucky paper stars.

Favorite Television

NCIS, The Big Bang Theory, Longmire, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, White Collar, Rizzoli and Isles, Suits, Last Man Standing, Hawaii Five-O, Elementary, La Femme Nikita, Stargate SG-1, NCIS: LA, Naruto

Favorite Books

The Kite Runner, The Namesake, Harry Potter series, Gemma Doyle trilogy, The Hunger Games trilogy, Old Magic, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit

I do really like reading books by the following authors to name a few: Nora Roberts, Mary Higgins Clark, Jodi Picoult, Janet Evanovich.

I do like poetry especially by Walt Whitman.

About Me

I am not into techno or heavy metal music. Otherwise I will give most music genres a chance.

I do like reading most genres. I am not really into horror books though. I am trying to read more new things, so any recommendations are greatly accepted and appreciated.

I know a little Spanish and Latin.

I am learning to make bracelets. I am in the early stages of learning to cross stitch.

Some things you might need to know for a Pick 3, Pick 7 or Fill My Stocking swap:

  • Shoe/Sock size is 5 or 6

Likes

+Blue (favorite color), white, green, red +Books +Washi tape +Stationery +Snowglobes +Candles +Keychains +Hot Chocolate +Coffee (flavored not black) +Beach +Spring & Summer +Beautiful landscapes +Rubber ducks +Foreign coins +Poetry +Keys +Mixed CDs

Wishlist

+Rubber ducks +Washi tape +Stationery +Stickers +Memo pads, note pads +Snowglobes +Candles (tealights) +Keychains +Foreign coins +Postcards - see below (both naked or envelope but preferably in envelope) +Hot drink sachets (tea, hot chocolate, coffee) +Souvenir from where you live +Recipes +Keys +Jigsaw Puzzles (any type I am not picky) + ATC embellishments, backs or papers

Food

I am becoming lactose intolerant so I eat milk based products in small quantities at a time. Also, that makes having coffee only be possible with powder creamer and not milk-based if needed.

I am trying to become a bigger tea drinker than hot chocolate and coffee. I do like Pomegrante White tea, Green tea and Sleepytime tea. I will give any tea a chance before deciding if I do not like it or not.

I am not allergic but I do not like eating seafood. I gave shrimp a chance once and almost choked on it.

I am always looking for new recipes to try. So if you have a favorite you are willing to share with me, I will gladly give it a try.

Postcards

As stated above, I do not care if it is sent naked or in an envelope. Although, I would prefer postcards to arrive in envelopes coming from out of the country because I have received some damaged postcards in the past.

I would love to receive any postcard that you took time in choosing to send me. If you need ideas, I like:

-states/cities

-landmarks (historical or not)

-quote or poems written in another language with an English translation (if possible)

-recipes

-flowers (if you can find one with a violet on it I would be most gracious and thankful)

-favorite spot you have been to

-holidays (any time of the year)

-book or reading related

-zodiac or Leo related

-animals (any except reptiles)

-TV or Movie related (does not have to be one of my favorites)

Dislikes

I really do not have that many dislikes. I just would prefer nothing too explicit, dark/horror or religious if possible.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask for a better explanation. I would be willing to help clarify for you any confusion.

About Me

As I have been asked about Lucky Paper Stars in a few of the swaps. So I have attached a photo of my last batch of lucky paper stars I made. I would be quite willing to send along a few in my swaps if my partners would like.

I love the idea of "If it fits, it sits". Oft times it sits even when it doesn't fit. Those are even funnier. I hope you enjoy there near fits.

Even the big cats try it.

Enjoy, SuZi
