About Me

I am a married mom of 3 (2 boys age 15 & 8 and a girl age 5) who works full time, but loves to swap items with people around the country and around the world! I look forward to making new friends through swaps!

I currently live in Alabama but am originally from Maine. I love living here and though I also love Maine, I don't think I will ever move back "home". I work in an office doing boring office work. Lately it has not been very fulfilling for me (hence the "boring" label), so I'm off looking for other things to fill my time and bring joy back into my life.

I will happily swap/receive FBs, Any type of bags (LB, SB, goodie bag, ANY bag), Decos, Slams and anything similar so feel free to send these types of things to me!! I prefer N&N FB, though.
I will also happily receive any items that can be used to make FBs, Decos, etc.

I'm getting ready to bring my kids to Disney for their first visit in Oct 2011 (but shhh, it's a secret), so I would love to receive anything Disney/Disney World related
Souvenir Magnets
Blank Notecards
Old Magazines with full color pages
comic books
funky socks (sock size EU 38/39)
scrapbook papers & embelishments (I don't scrapbook, but I use these things in other crafts)
Chocolates/Candies (chocolate only Oct - Feb, otherwise it will melt before it gets to me)
souvenir spoons/bells
Shot glasses
lip balms/lip glosses
crock pot/slow cooker recipes (I just got a new one and am always looking for new recipes for it!)
drink mixes (coffee, hot chocolate, teas)
prints that can be or already are framed
touristy books
souvenir pins
key rings
Anything to do with:
Final Fantasy video game series
Boston Red Sox
general "Kawaii"-type items
My Little Pony

Items Dislikes:
Licorice candies
cell phone charms
clip-on earrings

I also don't mind swapping things that my kids and husband like, they include: Dallas Cowboys - Boston Celtics - Star Wars - Pokemon - Items related to Greek Mythology - Hello Kitty - Batman

Favorite Music

Pretty much a mix of alternative rock & classic rock...some of my favorite bands:

Dave Matthews Band, Barenaked Ladies, Dispatch, Rustic Overtones, Beatles, Cake, Neil Diamond, Queen

Favorite Books

I'll read nearly everything, lately it's been these:

Twilight series, Harry Potter Series, anything by Christopher Moore, The Lovely Bones, The Little Prince

Currently Reading: The Dark is Rising Sequence: Over Sea, Under Stone

Favorite Movies

I love mostly comedies and beautifully filmed dramas, these are the first ones that come to mind:

Austin Powers movies, The House of Flying Daggers, Love Actually, Mean Girls

Favorite Television

Mostly comedies and a few dramas, mostly dramas that have some kind of supernatural twist, like:

Family Guy, Pushing Daisies, Chuck, Heroes, Lie to Me, True Blood

I also love reality TV and watch Survivor, Amazing Race, Big Brother (I even buy the live feed subscription so I can watch them anytime, I am obsessed with Big Brother, obsessed, I tell you!!), Real Housewives of...(all of them!).

Favorite Colors

Favorite colors include brown/pink combo, grays, purples, pinks and browns. I like soft greens & blues. Pastel yellows & oranges.

Again...not sure!


I've been flaked on for the first time:

Lip Balm Swap #3 by citylora


I collect 80's girls toys, mostly My Little Pony, but also Care Bear, Strawberry Shortcake & Rainbow Brite. I never really got into Barbie, though. I'm open to most 80's toys, those listed above (especially MLPs) make up the bulk of my collection.

If you have anything related to the 80's versions (I know most of these made a comeback recently) that you'd like to trade or swap, let me know! I am almost always up for more of them! I prefer figurines & other memorabilia to plushies (I always worry something's lurking in the stuffing after 20+ years! haha!).

My Rating/Swapping habits

Added 7/21/10

RATING: I rate when I receive & I rate all of my swaps. I keep a spreadsheet of all of my swaps and note dates of when they were sent and when I receive. I am, though, human and have been known to make an error before! If I haven't rated you though, more than likely, I haven't received. Please feel free to PM me if you think I should have received your swap by now and I haven't rated you. Likewise, I will ALWAYS PM if I haven't received before rating a 1.

SWAPPING: I DO NOT FLAKE. If you haven't received something from me and it seems like you should have by now, please contact me before rating a 1. I will happily go through my records with you and resend if necessary. I'd like to think I'm an overall pleasant person who is easy to talk to and reasonable, but your opinion may vary. :) But I will never think you're badgering me if you PM to ask where a swap is. The USPS isn't perfect and sometimes things happen to packages. That's an inherent risk to swapping and I'm prepared to resend when the swap allows (especially FB & penpal swaps!) Going forward, if it seems like a long time since I've sent and haven't been rated, I will probably contact you to make sure you at least received it.

What I've learned about swap-bot - the long and short of all this - is communication is key. Thanks for reading & happy swapping! :)

I angeled the WTA at FBnDecoSwappers that you flaked on.

Megbomb on Apr 14, 2011:

Unfortunately I have been forced to remove you from ST and M because it seems a couple trains have reached a black hole at your home and you are not signing in. Please contact me and I would be happy to have you back if you get these trains back home.

tiggerkitn25 on Mar 27, 2011:

Hi! Have you gotten the sticker bag train for ST&M yet? Thanks!

draco on Jan 1, 2011:

did you ever receive my swap for the 5+5+5 fbs/labelbags? the 1st envelope was returned "refused" because $0.25 was due (i tend to guess at the postage/bad habit, i know), so i resent. i pm'ed you and sent you an e-mail, but heard nothing back.

michellew on Nov 4, 2010:

Thankyou for the gorgeous bird beads/pendents for the Etsy Addicts WTA #3! They are adorable, I can't wait to use them!

Megbomb on Oct 12, 2010:

Thanks for all the postcards and fb's you sent home with the slam!

agonysdecay on Sep 24, 2010:

You are so very welcome, enjoy the eyeshadow!

joppagirl on Sep 17, 2010:

Thanks for the N&N fbs for the FB&Penpal Swappers tag.

cathydolphinlvr on Sep 12, 2010:

estromberg on Sep 1, 2010:
