Note...If I am a coordinator for your swap and you do not receive a pkg from your assigned partner, please let me know. I angel all of my swaps! I want everyone to have a pleasant experience.
I mail both domestic and international so mail receipt times may be different but in the event that you do not receive my swap within a few weeks, please PM me before you rate me. I usually send out 1-2 days after I receive my names.
also, if there is a problem with something that i have sent, before you rate me poorly, please send a PM with the issue. A lot can be resolved with simple communication. I will do the same. Thanks.
Can i say that this site is really addictive?! wow, im on here way more than im supposed to be...but i love it...
A very special Thanks to everyone who sends and will send and a very special thanks to all who rate as well...!
Hi, My name is Sherrie. (Share-ree)-- like cherry with an S. (But not spelled like it! LOL. You will not believe the mispronunciations and mispellings that i have seen in my lifetime!)
I am a California native --but love traveling--right now my current favorite other place is Boston. I don't know why but I love Boston every time i visit. My third other favorite place is MN. I went to college there so I love to visit and shop when i can. (Mall of America, whoo hoo!)
Other than that, I love reading- and trading...so any opportunity to trade is welcome. I will also do private swaps...especially for books..let me know if we share an interest...I don't mind mailing especially since I love fun packages... Favorite items: books....especially romance novels...Debbie Macomber, Sherryl Woods, Robyn Carr, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Catherine Anderson, Lori Foster, Stef Ann Holm are some of my favorite authors but I'm up to reading anything that is recommended as a good suggestion!
My favorite shows include American Horror Story, Handmaids Tale, How to Get Away with Murder, and Switched At Birth.
My favorite movie of all time is CLUE. i love everything about it! They just dont make movies like that anymore. (sad) For that reason, I also enjoy those dinner murder mystery shows that some places have. (my dream is to go on a murder mystery train ride--never been but i have been to the dinner shows and they are great.)
I also enjoy 80's movies- they made them so much better back then!!
my hobbies include writing , letter writing (yes, email is much faster but something about receiving a letter from a friend is much more personal and fun), reading, traveling around (right now its limited to domestic traveling but who knows what the future will hold for international?) and discovering new things to do to keep my mind busy. My favorite color is purple...and i love collecting things but i have to say that my closet is really full so ever so often, i donate in bulk to the local goodwill--clothes, books, etc to make room for the new clutter!!
This is a special section for things i would absolutely LOVE to have...no pressure, of course:
My favorite store in the world---(so far) is Crabtree & Evelyn..i absolutely love their scents--my favorites are Summer Hill, Spring Rain, Wisteria, and i like Savannah. I believe Summer Hill and Wisteria have been discontinued...but If anyone has any samples or unopened pkgs of these scents, (any size!) please pm me. i am sooo willing to trade.
I love Kiehls as well...so anything from Kiehls is very much appreciated!!
I love the new "Keep Calm and.." items i keep seeing everywhere. Trust me, any little thing helps with stress..so i would love these. (See my etsy faves or amazon fave links for examples) but i especially love the "Keep Calm and Have a cupcake" and/or the "Keep Calm and Carry On" slogans on items--especially stationery..handmade is more than welcome.
Owls and/or Cupcake themed stationery: journals/notebooks/notepads/memo sheets
I am always looking for and collecting Cupcake tote bags. (handmade is fine!)
amazon, target or michaels gift cards--any amount!
Yves Rocher scents (i recieved one in package from france...so lovely!) anyone have any samples?
and that's it for now...
onto the likes...
OTHER FUN THINGS I ENJOY:
anything i can use or display with the correct spelling of my name on it. (handmade is more than welcome). No store I have ever seen sells anything with the correct spelling.
anything from paperchase brand --i love their stationery!
Anything Anne of Green Gables or Nova Scotia--i love Anne of Green Gables and dream of visiting Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia one day..
owl themed items (i received something in a tag and now i love it--check out my etsy faves for ideas)
sticker sheets (no flakes!)
peppermint cocoa/hot chocolate (any brand) NOT mint but peppermint. (there is a difference in the taste)
stationery is always welcome. Love it and will always use it
I Love journaling--its my favorite thing to do.. so anything related to journals will be extra appreciated! (lined journals please)
pastry stationery-- i didnt really pay this much attention before swap-bot but now that i have received some--i love it! cupcakes, cakes, pies...any notecards, lettersets, list pads, memo papers with pastries on it are welcome and loved..
postcards--nature themed or seasonal postcards (winter, spring, autumn, summer) are appreciated..but i am open to all types.
new unopened samples...i love samples of lotions, cremes, soaps, perfume...especially floral scents. (please make sure it will not leak in transit)
paperweights or magnets that have something quirky or funny.
books (preferrably american writers) womens fiction --chick lit-- or romance -its my de-stresser)
Note: romance novels are my fave----paranormal especially! (i have very few dislikes in this dept but see below in dislike section for the two kinds i do not read)
candy (any type except for dark chocolate) but i love white chocolate the best!
stationery...(notepads, pens, notecards, cards, memo pads --please no scraps)
anything that is small but can have multiple uses...(i.e., magnetic memo holders, etc)
small items like keychains, cell phone decoration, etc.
pouches, coin purses, cosmetic bags with cute or funny one-liners, notes or characters on it.
scarves-- (head or neck) any type or design. They're always fun to accessorize!
Eco-bags or totebags.(any size) Cute little designs are appreciated but im not picky! (reusable grocery bags are great!)
recipes--basic, cheap, simple and quick is all i do at the monent.
I also loved Avonlea...does anyone remember that show? wonderful show! it was based from Anne of Green Gables...
PLEASE DO NOT SEND:
Vintage 1980's (and before) romance novels--those romance novels that were written by authors such as Barbara Bradford, Fern Michaels, etc and also suspense/intrigue series romance novels..i don't really like the writing style or story lines.
ATC materials. I do not do ATC anything. I like completed ATCs so feel free to send me those but please do not send me ATC making materials.
Baking materials--i love cupcake themed items but not actual items used to make cupcakes...i dont bake much so they may just sit around for a long or be re-swapped. Dont waste your money :)
calendars--i automatically receive so many from various insurance companies, etc that i really dont need the extras. So please save them or send them to someone who can use them--however if you make homemade envies from the pages and send me the envies, i would love it!
Ribbon--I have a lot from previous swaps and i really dont use it for anything..i just re swap it back out to people who do.
Dark chocolate. Regular Chocolate is wonderful but dark chocolate is terrible. so bitter.
Anything coffee flavored including coffee candy or coffee itself. I cannot stand the taste.
sticker flakes--sticker flakes are small sticker pieces that are seperate from the sheet. I prefer full sheets as the pieces tend to scatter everywhere when envie is opened.
Earrings--my ears are not pierced. Ive received some very cute earrings in the past, but sadly unless they are clip ons, i cannot wear them.
paper scraps--please no paper scraps. especially shredded ones and no punchies either please. they're just tiny items that get lost in the shuffle.
old receipts, used tickets, etc.
items smelling of smoke!! (ive actually recd some items in swaps and tags recently that totally reek of smoke) please if you smoke around your items, can you air out the items or smother the items with dryer sheets before you wrap or send?
Also, since we are mailing items, i guess it would be appropriate to add that anything that has potential to leak or tear..it would be gross to open.
Thanks for reading my profile and happy swapping!
