My etsy favorites
Hi! 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 have one husband and four kids, ages (Ethan) 12, (Paige) 10, (Logan) 9, and (Samuel) 6. We also have a foster baby. I live in Arizona. I have two noisy cockatiels (Captain Jack and Disco). 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 purple (darker shades). However, I never met a color I didn't like!
Animals: I love, love, love the duck-billed platypus! I am fascinated with those creatures. They seem like they were made from a bunch of "leftovers" after all the other animals were created. I also love Basset Hounds, cockatiels, mallard ducks, walruses, sea horses and turtles.
Hobbies: Playing the piano, reading, cooking (trying out new recipes), couponing, soccer (yes, I'm a "soccer mom") ;-), playing Mario brothers games, crocheting, knitting, exercising, recycling, adding to my collections
Books: I LOVE books and reading! For an idea of what kinds of books I like: crochet or knitting books, magazines or pamphlets; Harry Potter; Jane Austen; "The Host"by Stephenie Meyer; cleanreads
Crafts: Crocheting and knitting. I also enjoy sewing simple things and cross stitching occasionally. I have tried ATCs in the past and enjoy those, but only when I'm feeling creative.
More detailed descriptions of what I like are below:
I would to receive crochet or knit books or magazines.
I would also love to receive the Harry Potter book number 5, or "Mansfield Park" by Jane Austen. Also, "The Host", by Stephenie Meyer. I don't have these titles yet, and would love them. I also would enjoy receiving Christian or Inspirational fiction (with happy endings). Clean reads.
Please do not send me any other books, unless the swap happens to require it. I have discovered I am just WAY to picky about what I read! I am an avid library user. ;-)
I love to knit and crochet. Those are my main crafts, but I also like to sew and cross stitch occasionally. I am trying my hand at ATCs. I love to try new crafts.
I also love the kitchen and cooking. It's kind of a bummer because we have a few food allergies in our family, but I try my best.
Please send me your unwanted leftover yarn balls! I make little things from yarn leftovers all the time. I would love to take them off your hands!
I love to collect NATIVITY Christmas ornaments. I decorate my tree with them. If you send me a nativity ornament I will 'love you forever'. ;-) (Please no angels or stars by themselves. Just Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, shepherds, and/or wisemen. Thanks!)
I like to collect and would love to receive:
anything Mario Brothers related (especially one-up mushrooms)
leftover yarn balls
acrylic worsted weight yarn
nicely made ATCs (especially profile based ones)
Nativity Christmas ornaments
jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, earrings for pierced ears, toe rings), handmade or store bought
Christmas themed postcards, store bought, blank
cute/pretty/unusual refrigerator magnets (especially holiday or seasonal themed ones)
Here is my wishlist. Anything from this list will be greatly adored:
anything from my collections section above! :-D
yarn needles (large eye, blunt)
plastic safety eyes
pocket tissues with designs
acrylic worsted weight yarn
Nativity Christmas ornament(s)
sugar-free butterscotch hard candy

tried and true recipes that are allergy free (especially vegetarian/vegan)
wrapping paper/gift wrap (Christmas, birthday, all occasion, wedding, baby, etc., any kind)

A handmade (or store bought) half apron with pocket(s)
A big stitch counter, one I won't lose in the cushions of the couch
Wii games rated "E" or "E 10+", new or used.
Anything from (or similar to) my etsy favorites
Anything that has to do with platypuses. (Even Perry from Phineas and Ferb. Love him.)
Allergies: My husband is allergic to all milk/dairy products. My son is allergic to nuts. I just found out I am allergic to chocolate. :(
Please do NOT send me recipes that have: nuts, soy, tofu, dairy products, chocolate, seafood, alcohol, or eggplant. I will not be able to use them. Thanks!
A note: We often eat vegetarian meals for health reasons. Eggs in a recipe are okay. Recipes with meat in them are good, but I especially would love to add more vegetarian (minus dairy) recipes to my collection!
I guess I should add a "dislikes" section:
Please do not send me candy, unless it is sugar free. I am not diabetic, but sugar makes me feel ill. I like sugar free candy, and I especially love other kinds of sugar free goodies (not chocolate due to allergies).
Please do not send me coffee or tea. I don't drink them.
Please don't send me recipes that call for fish or seafood, soy ingredients or tofu, alcohol and please no eggplant (tried them, and it was a no-go at our house).
I don't appreciate nudity, sexual references, foul language or excessive violence.
I don't need scrapbook supplies. I have tried that and it just hasn't worked out. I have great respect for those of you talented in that area!
Please don't send notebooks, journals, magnetic/paper lists, or stationery. I already have all I need of those items.
That's probably about it! My list of dislikes got kind of long! blush, blush I will love and appreciate anything you take time in to sending me. :-) Happy swapping to you all! ((hugs))
