March 5, 2013 I'm caught up (yeah) except for my initial swap, which I still have to get a couple of things for. I will not send a caca package, and for those who have received, know I send decent swaps (eyes of the beholder). Me and my partner are in contact. I have packages to still open, but I don't get to open till the initial swap in the mail...lol I am tough on me :)
February 25 2013... I am in snow..as well as other people...in case I don't make it on...I will be late late..and late with three packages... I do not work Wednesday and hopefully that means I can run to post office...sorry..love my swapping..but not gonna rush out and kill myself..well unless it was for the last ipa ever lol...anywho...happy swapping :)
Hello All, I am in my 40's with two daughters, one in Chicago, and the other here with me in KCMO. I was a full time employee with a corporation, and now clean houses. One house i clean for has a wonderful lady who is now a dear friend. She was always opening up something fun from all over the world and I thought, how cool, I would love to do that as well as I thought it would be fun for my 8 1/2 year old daughter.
So, here I am.
I am currently trying to relearn how to use my sewing machine. It has been forever. I got that nice straight stich for curtains done. .....update January 2013 ..machine still under my table lol..but I look at it every day.. I hope to swap with you all soon :)
I love to cook too! I love old recipe books and new recipe books and I love to merge recipes. I love gardening and I love love love pasta!
I have been trying my best to be the EXTREME coupon-er, and wow is it challenging. My favorite part of a good shopping couponing trip is when the person at the register says "very good" or gives you a high five...favorite coupons are toothpaste, dental floss, tide, cleaning products.
Currently reading Nora Roberts the inn boonsboro trilogy and Barbara Cameron quilts of lancaster county trilogy.
Well, I enjoyed the heck out of all the twilight books, harry potter, anything James Patterson, Danielle Steel, Maeve Binchy, Autobiography's, currently reading Bossy Pants by Tina Fey (oh my goodness it cracks me up!)
I also enjoy reading historical novels, I have learned so many weird tidbits, but, it makes great conversation.
I am not to proud to say that i also love all of my magazines. I love the pictures, the articles, the RECIPES, etc.. my daughter will read the newspaper with me.. it cracks me up.. gets her talking though, so gotta love it.
My 8 1/2 year old girl OVES making ATC cards and loves opening all my swap packages. she enjoyed the hats and gloves and everyone in awhile let's me keep something. Lol
Bella is a St.. Patty's day baby... So we love anything St. patties day :)
Halloween is her favorite time of the year.
She enjoys making cartoons and drawing...
We love crafting together and going to our Hillcrest (goodwill shop) shop together to purchase craft supplies.
I can't wait to see what she does this summer :)
Bella loves the colors Blue and, anything CAMO..loves Katy Perry, and loves to eat Chocolate and drink sweet tea.
She would also like me to type that she loves Raccoons and Kitties.
Thrift store finds are awesome. I love old candleholders, old frames, notecards, recipe cards, hand towels, watches, jewelry, sewing supplies ( making my daughter a sewing box) items related to where you live, cool tshirts (size m), Audrey Hepburn, old pottery, pens, pencils, small craft kits that people buy to do and forget (oh that's me too lol) watermelons, fall color items, well..this all needs to be worked on more...
Bella is enjoying swap-bot as much as I am and can't wait for her first package (although she is enjoying mine just fine :):):):).
SMASH....CSI EVERYTHING, Criminal Minds, Smash, Glee, Once Upon a Time, old movies, new movies, Frasier, Everryone loves Raymond,
anything on PBS or the history channel, however, right now I'm using an antenna, so at this time I would say I enjoy whatever i can get on the screen ;) (update: cable coming December 18) yipeeeeeupdate jan 2013 We have uverse woohoo...unlimited criminal minds and dog the outs hunter lol
My favorite crafts are looking at pieces of items laying around the house and putting it together into a card, or some type of fun item for my daughter.
i love me some ATC,s and Zines, making things out of boxes
Update January 2013... Made my first batch of envelopes and finally used my stamps that I purchased um... 10 years ago. Me thinks I will be back into scrabooking and envies and maybe mail art :)
Zines Zines must do more Zines
I make them all the time now with my daughter and can't wait to swap with you all!
So.. I am rebuilding my craft area as I moved two years from Chicago to Missouri...I love all the little knicks knacks that people send and I guess my favorite things would be gel pens, paper clips, stickers... I am way behind on those...xso right now the wish list is open.
Bella loves pokiemon cards, hair clips (not to girlie) soccer anything, markers, and she loves cake boss and dreams of making cakes like he does.. S recipes or designs of fun easy cakes would be cool.
February 15 My one is now a three... My one changed to a three...I am not sure why not a five...but it's better than a one...the person not an active swapper, so I a happy that it got changed to a three... I love swapping and apparently I will be stopped from some swaps, but I am blessed with some groups they know my swaps and I ask that others read my ratings and let me in :) I have a one...yuck.. The first time was due to the package not arriving... She has been gracious enough to let me send another one, however I got the flu, everyone else around me was sick the holidays popped up and I FORGOT. I am sure it will be changed shortly, but until then.. I didn't flake, I just became a silly goose. If it wasn't international I would take her to dinner too...but what can I say..it is what it is...everyone still is all good... And I thank you for your patience. I will always rate, it may be slow, but I always do that too :) everyone works so hard on these and all deserves a thank you.
Everything but black licorice..lol that should settle that. Love teas and coffees. There isnt one that I do not like yet. Feb 2013..... It just dawned to me, I am on an international swap community...if you ever see this and you have good Thai recipes..especially punang (spelling) I will take it.... I have looked online and can't seem to find any.
I love stuff...it has been so much fun opening packages with socks, handmade jewelry, packaged crafts, rocks, stones, little notes, etc.. I try to send people their favorite stuff too; therefore I need to commit to writing abetter profile for the stuff I like...I am understanding a well filled out profile needs to be FILLED out...but truly, I am in honeymoon stage and love everything.
