About Me


Hi my name is Syndee and I live in the High Desert of Southern California, about 3 hours south of Las Vegas.

I am a born again Christian who loves the Lord and I strive to live for Him the best that I can.

I'm a mother of 3 daughters ages 27, 23, and 21 and a wife of 30+ years. I work with special needs kids as a teacher's aid. I love it! These kids are amazing. I love the hearts of these kids. I also work part time as a case manager for a fiduciary. I go and visit several elderly clients weekly, making sure their needs are being met. Making sure they have some money to spend and relaying messages to my boss. It is also a very rewarding, yet challenging at times, job! As a third part time job, I'm overseer of the nursery at our church. My heart is for the babies!! I seem to be in there more than in the service! I make a volunteer schedule for 3 different services and am responsible for finding childcare workers when special events or even random meetings pop up. This is a fun but sometimes frustrating job. I love working with the children but the challenge comes when trying to find others with that same love!! So as you can see I am a very busy woman. Summers I get a break from my school job so that's when I get to swap!! Yay!!!

I have been a member of Swap-bot since March of 2007.

A note about extras and hearts

I give hearts for the actual swap and not for extras. If the swap puts a smile on my face, you will receive a heart. I always rate fairly and always leave a comment. I do not send extras unless it's something I know you will really love. I hope you will rate my swaps the same.

Favorite Books

My all time favorite book is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn"

When I have time to read, I enjoy Christian romance, and mysteries. I don't much care for books that have graphic sex or foul language in them.

Updated 6/10/15

With my busy schedule I've become quite addicted to audible.com. I am able to listen to so many more books than I would have time to read! Some books I've recently loved are:

Sara's Key

The Secret Keeper

The Night Circus-loooooved this one!!

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Water for Elephants

Just finished: The Girl on the Train

The Secret Life of Bees

The Color Purple

I am currently listening to: Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine.


I love scrapbooking supplies, paper, cupcake themed items, clear stamps, stamp pads, hearts, **the color pink, gingerbread men, popcorn,flavored ground coffees, fibers, buttons, ribbon,** vintage sewing notions, antique mason jars, 1940's kitchen (especially the green of that era) stuff, adhesives (I'm an adhesive junkie!), chocolate, beads, baskets, bows, handmade cards, prima flowers, sunflowers, Gerber daisies (especially pink), just about anything pink. I love candles that have fruity or home cooked scents such as Pumpkin spice, Butter Cookies etc.

Favorite Crafts

Some of my favorite crafts are:

Cake Decorating (Don’t have time for this one anymore)

Card making

Pocket Letters(a new found love)

Baking ( I LOVE to bake!!)

Making mini scrapbook albums

Making ATCs

Chunky book

Book altering

Altering just about anything




I really love learning new techniques and new crafts. I'm always surfing the internet looking for new ideas and new things to try.


I dislike:


Rude people


Moochers and

Gossip hounds

Nasty pictures

Pagan or Wiccan items

Vampires (They creep me out most of all)


Anything with a dark, or horror theme

I am allergic to strong floral scents so please keep that in mind when putting together a swap for me. I don't take baths (don't worry I shower daily! ;D ) so bath salts, bubble bath etc. are not useful to me.

Favorite Television

I Love Lucy


Andy Griffith

Mary Tyler Moore

Dick Van Dyke


Amazing Race


The Middle

The Goldbergs

Master Chef

Hell's Kitchen

The Next Food Network Star

Iron Chef

The Cake Boss

The Next Great Baker

thebragal rated for Alphabet ATC Series: Aa on Apr 16, 2018
Comment: Thank You for doing an autism theme. Very special. Did you know Taylored Expressions just came out with some new Autism themes stamps and dies! I can’t wait to get them. Have to save tho as I’m in the middle of a craft room redo. Very $$$$. For the future, a combination of mediums, supplies and themes is fine to satisfy the letter requirement. Not three of each! It did work out to make a great ATC tho!
Response: I’m so glad you liked it! I will be looking for those stamps! I know I will be able to use them a lot!!! Thank you for the kind comments and the heart! ❤️

Thank you so much for the Kindle book for my wish in the Wishlist group! =) Got to love that super fast delivery for wishes!

The wonderful package for my June wish list came today. Thank you so much, I enjoy everything. You are so thoughtful. I lived in Palmdale though would love to live in your area. I love collecting gingerbread people and would love to exchange stuff with you. I don't have any cupcake stuff but I can look for it. As for giraffe stuff, I don't collect it. I am a chemo angel for a person who likes giraffes so I enjoy finding small, easy to mail giraffe stuff. The card you sent is perfect. I would be happy to exchange for other small mailable notes or items. Thank you again for the great wish list package.
