I enjoy swapping- FBs and labelbags, mainly, but I am open-minded to new ideas. I also love postcards and am always trying to add to my collection. I like stickers, stationery, notecards, and pens.My favorite color is pink, but I also like teal and red. I like leopard prints, beachy themes, camo colors (especially in pink!), and polka-dots themes. I've been penpalling for about 6 years now, and have a nice, small group of great pals. I like chatty letters and actually getting to know the person that I am writing to. There is nothing worse than putting a lot of time and effort into a letter and receiving a note in return! I work a lot of hours, but in my free time I enjoy shopping, video games, and reading. I live in a small town in West Virginia, and by small I mean that there isn't even home mail delivery here! I'm always looking for new penpals and/or swappers, so if you think we'd get along, please send me a message.
I like things with cats,monkeys, owls, faeries, flip-flops, and seahorses on them. I also like salt-and-pepper shakers, cute kitchen towels, purses, Hawaiian flower themes, Beanie Babies, and beach themes. Character-wise, I like Hello Kitty, Chococat, Diddl, Elmo, and Blue from "Blue's Clues".
I love postcards, especially ones of different cities/countries, city views, sunsets, oceans/beaches, lighthouses, animals, etc. I'm NOT a huge fan of pc's showing historic buildings, though! I want to eventually have postcards from every state. These are the states I need cards from right now, including map cards: *Alabama *Arkansas *Colorado *Connecticut *Deleware *Hawaii *Georgia *Idaho *Illinois *Indiana *Maine *Maryland *Massachusetts *Mississippi *Missouri *Montana *Nebraska *Nevada *New Jersey *New Hampshire *New Mexico *New York *North Dakota *Oklahoma *Oregon *Rhode Island *South Carolina *South Dakota *Vermont *Virginia *Washington *Wisconsin *Wyoming. I will be grateful for anyone who can help me with getting these! I'm also looking for postcards of Paris, Japan, Iceland, and Dubai.
Things that I DISLIKE are: reward stickers as I have no use for them, short letters (by short I mean a paragraph long), letters that smell like smoke or perfume (I'm allergic to both), judgemental people, demanding penpals who tell you how often to write and how much to write, and FLAKERS! I have been cheated on swaps way too many times! I don't like anything with Mickey Mouse or Hannah Montana. Also no make-up or things that smell of flowers as I have allergies and have to be careful of what I use. Nail polish is ok in bright colors!I like vanilla, spicy, or cinnamon scented things.
I mainly listen to country, R&B, and 80s. I love Boston, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Adele, and Usher to name a few. I am NOT a fan of heavy metal or rap! I listen to Pandora and IHeartRadio a lot.
I love to read. Right now, I am on a James Patterson kick. :) I also love all books by JD Robb, Emily Giffin, Jane Greene, and Nicholas Sparks. I also like all of the Twilight series. I mainly like mystery, suspense, and some romance books. My least favorite books are historical romance books. I find most of them boring for some reason, I also love the House of Night series.
"Pretty Little Liars", "Switched at Birth", "Secret Life of the American Teenager", "Devious Maids", "The Vampire Diaries", and different shows on TLC and HGTV. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" will always be my favorite show, though. :) Reality shows- I like "16 and Pregnant", "Catfish: the TV Show", "What Not to Wear", and "MasterChef".
the "Twilight" series, "The Ugly Truth", "A Walk to Remember", "Because I Said So", "The Time-Travelers Wife". I am a huge fan of movies with Katherine Heigl, Gerald Butler, and Vin Diesel in them. "Dirty Dancing" is my favorite movie! I'm not a big fan of horror movies- there are only a few of them that I actually like.
I'm not really a fan of crafts, but I do like to sew sometimes. Small things such as pillows, pajamas, small purses, etc. I like the small squares of fabrics b/c it's a cheap way to get different pieces. I made a lot of baby stuff with my first daughter, I eventually want to get into scrapbooking, but as of right now I just don't have the time or patience for it. LOL
I send all of my swaps out on time, if not early. If you don't receive something from me, PLEASE let me know and I will resend! Sometimes things do get lost in the mail. If I don't receive a swap, I will try to get in touch with my partner before rating, but if it's been 3-4 weeks late, I'm rating a 1. Sorry! I'm a reasonable person, but I can't stand a flaker!
I've only been flaked on once in Swap-Bot swaps. I never received the "Journal Your July" swap from a user named moonrose. I never got any replies to messages from her OR from the host!
I admit that I am a bit of a video gamer. I'm not much into the "shooter" games, though. I love the Guitar Hero and Rock band games, especially the vocals! I also like all the Harry Potter games, Saw, Castlevania (have been a fan since I was a kid), and the Lego games.
I'm not really that hard to make happy. But I would love address labels made for me, journals, note cards, stationery, scrapbook paper, pens, stickers. anything with my favorite characters on them, anything PINK, hair accessories (especially scrunchies), anything with beachy themes or seahorses, postcards, keychains, cute fridge magnets, any of the Mortal Instruments books (I only have book one, "City of Bones"), anything with flip-flops on it, bookmarks, purses.....
