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
Old Magazines with full color pages
funky socks (sock size EU 38/39)

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

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!).
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! :)
