About Me

Hello! Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my profile!

Here is a quick little run down about me so you can get to know me better. I am a stay-at-home mom. My family consists of my husband and our five children, ranging in age from 19 to 8. I have three cockatiels. I live in Arizona. Hot!!πŸ˜“

I love swapping on swap-bot. It is something that I do for "me" to brighten the otherwise mundane housework, grocery shopping, homework, carpooling, etc. of everyday life. I LOVE SNAIL MAIL!

SOME OF MY FAVORITES:

Colors: any and all shades of green, my very favorite is dark/forest green. I also love deep purple. I especially enjoy green and purple combinations. That being said, I love all colors!

Animals: I love the duck-billed platypus! It is my very favorite animal. I find them fascinating!

Also on my favorite animal list are: hedgehogs, Basset Hounds, cockatiels, mallard ducks, walruses, sea horses, and turtles/tortoises

Hobbies: Playing the piano, reading, soccer (I'm a "soccer mom"), crocheting, knitting, exercising, recycling, adding to my collections

Crafts: Crocheting and knitting. I also enjoy cross stitching occasionally. I have tried ATCs in the past and enjoy those as well.

More detailed descriptions of what I like are below. Feel free to read what you like and skip what isn't relevant:

Favorite Crafts

I love to knit and crochet.

Note: If you have no use for and don't know what to do with your leftover yarn balls, you can send them my way! I make little things from yarn leftovers all the time and I love to have variety in colors.

My collections/FYI:

Favorite collection: I love to collect NATIVITY Christmas ornaments. (Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, shepherds, and/or wisemen.)

My Other collections:

Anything with a platypus on it

leftover yarn balls

acrylic worsted weight yarn

nicely made ATCs (I especially love profile based ones)

jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, earrings for pierced ears), handmade or store bought

Christmas postcards, store bought, blank/unused

Postcards, blank (prefer non-touristy, but I like all postcards)

Advent Calendars

Other things I LOVE:

Here is my wishlist. Anything from this list will make me very happy:

stories or anything relating to adoption(s), (near and dear to my heart)

anything from my collections section above! πŸ˜„

Nativity scenes

pocket tissues with designs

scented lip gloss

personal address labels

Deco tape/washi tape

perfume samples

colorful pens/gel pens

Anything (postcards, note cards, images, etc.) in a language foreign to my native English

Images of sunsets on the beach

Baymax from "Big Hero 6", especially in his "fluffy" state, not in uniform

sock monkeys

handwritten letters. A letter from YOU would make my day!

Decorative bandages (Any and all designs or pictures)

decorative envelopes, store bought or handmade

gift cards to anywhere

Christmas!

Autumn, Halloween and Thanksgiving

exercise dvds, blu rays (new or used)

Button on hanging hand towels, handmade or store bought

Holiday cards for any holiday, Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day, etc., store bought or handmade, blank/unused

hair accessories, barettes, clips, headbands, etc.

Snow! Snow flakes and snow scenes. We don't get any snow here, and I am glad, but I really think it is beautiful and sometimes I feel I am missing out.

wrapping paper/gift wrap (Christmas, birthday, all occasion, wedding, baby, etc.)

A handmade (or store bought) half apron with pocket(s)

I am a fan of the paranormal, especially ghosts! I love ghost stories and personal paranormal accounts. I would LOVE to hear yours if you are willing to share your experience! (I am not a fan of the bloody, gory, dark, or evil, however.)

Anything from (or similar to) my etsy favorites

An advent calendar ( love advent calendars of any kind. I love the countdown to Christmas.)

Anything that has to do with platypuses

POSTCARDS:

To whom it may concern/postcard preferences:

I love nearly all postcards, but here is a list of the postcards I particularly enjoy:

Platypus

Fluffy and/or soft animals, domestic or wild, (photographs that make you want to touch or pet them)

Sea creatures, especially sea horses

Hedgehogs

Tortoises

Mallard ducks

Birds

Cows

Castles/palaces

Hawaii or other tropical islands

Beautiful sunsets

Norman Rockwell

Frogs

Beach

Christmas

Vintage (true vintage, not copies)

Non-touristy

Multiview without borders (the pictures fade into each other)

Fantasy

Dogs, especially Bassett hounds

Cats

Airplanes in flight

Rainbows (photographs)

Waterfalls

Greenery

Autumn leaves or other Fall photographs

Nativity scenes

Native/cultural dress

Books/reading related

Walruses

Founding fathers

Holidays (any)

Black and White photographs

Anything relating to my likes or collections above

A note about postcard preferences: For the most part, I prefer postcards sent blank in an envelope if the swap asks for a choice. I love swapping postcards and it is nice to have a variety in my stash. However, I enjoy almost as much to receive stamped and written on postcards, especially if the postcard is from my postcard preferences list above, has a nice, long handwritten note on it, is nicely decorated and/or has neat postage stamps on the back. 🀩

Dislikes:

I guess I should add a "dislikes" section:

Coffee or tea.Β  I don't drink these.Β  Sometimes I drink herbal teas.

Macabre, bloody, gory, or demonic

excessive violence

Skulls (although I love Halloween, this is the one thing I find too creepy for my taste. I like full body skeletons, though!)

Romance novels

Zazzle (or other printed) postcards

I don't do scrap booking or card making

I have all the notebooks, journals, note cards and stationery I need.Β 

Not a fan of Monkeys and apes (with the exception of sock monkeys).Β  The only animals I don't care for much.

Thank you!

Thank you so very much for the awesome stamp set. I would have documented that I received it sooner but I've been very ill with one of the bad flus that have been going around. Thanks again. God Bless and Happy Holidays........=)
