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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
Some of my favorite crafts are:
Cake Decorating (Don’t have time for this one anymore)
Pocket Letters(a new found love)
Baking ( I LOVE to bake!!)
Making mini scrapbook albums
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.
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.
I Love Lucy
Mary Tyler Moore
Dick Van Dyke
The Next Food Network Star
The Cake Boss
The Next Great Baker
