About Me

Hi! I'm Charlotte and I'm a 33 yo mom to 3 rambunctious boys who are 12, 10 and 8. I've been happily married to my soul mate for almost 13 years. We're a homeschooling family so I consider educating the boys and running our home to be my full time work. I also do extensive volunteer work in the field of suicidology.

I am so excited that I found this site as I love sending and receiving mail and packages. I take a lot of time to select the items that I send so I hope that you do the same.

I always, always, ALWAYS send out my swaps so if for some reason you didn't receive my letter/card/package, please contact me so I can resend. Additionally I rate upon receipt. So if you don't have a rating from me, I haven't gotten your mail yet. If you haven't met the swap requirements or the deadline, I will absolutely rate you a 1. Swappers who can't follow directions or make it to the PO on time shouldn't sign up to swap as it ruins swap-bot for others. That said, should the package show up or you'd like to resend to reflect the requirements of the swap, I am always happy to re-rate.

Favorite Music

I enjoy contemporary Christian music, pop, musicals, country from the late 90's-early 2000's, 80's-90's music, TV/movie soundtracks, Alternative, Rock, Classical...pretty much anything really except gangster rap, hard core metal and jazz.

Favorite Movies

To boil it down a lot (because I really, really love movies), I love comedy, romance, adventure, action, fantasy, sci-fi and drama but some of my favorite movies are:

Seven, Lucky # Slevin, Rent, Serenity, Legally Blonde, Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, Dogma, Die Hard, Hannibal Lector Series, Good Will Hunting, Awakenings, The Librarian Trilogy, National Treasure 1 & 2, Oceans 11, 12 and 13 and Jane White is Sick and Twisted

Favorite Books

Books The Holy Bible, Parenting with Love and Logic and the DSM-IV-TR (Yes I'm a dork lol)

Authors Dave Ramsey, Meg Cabot, Sophie Kinsella

Favorite Television

Switched at Birth, Bones, Secret Life of the American Teenager, How I Met Your Mother, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse, Dexter, House, ER, New Girl, Modern Family, Glee, Tosh.0, 7th Heaven, Friends, Ellen, Roseanne, Gilmore Girls and Six Feet Under

These aren't in any particular order, nor do I watch them all all the time obviously or I'd never have time to be on here! lol

Favorite Podcasts

The Smartest Man in the World, Doug Loves Movies, RISK and The Dave Ramsey Show

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy sewing, quilt making, digital scrapbooking, paper crafts and I also enjoy card making. I'm just getting into it so some things I'd love include 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbooking paper, 3D foam squares, scrapbooking chalk, stamps and multicolored card stock. (I'd like these things only if you already have them in your stash and don't need/use them, please don't go out to purchase these unless the requirements of a swap)

I also love coloring with colored pencils (but only Crayola brand). I recently went to one of those places where you paint a portrait copying one at the front of the room while you share drinks with your friends. I had an amazing time and plan on trying to paint on my own very soon.

Finally, I enjoy doing crafts I find on Pinterest. I have never been so inspired than by the projects I find on there!

Favorite Websites

http://www.wishuponahero.com, http://www.scrangie.com, http://betterafter.blogspot.com, http://www.dulcecandy.com and http://www.addicted2decorating.com

Additional Likes

I love postcards that are Parisian themed (especially the Eiffel Tower), faeries, cats, owls and kawaii (esp. Hello Kitty).

I prefer for them to be sent naked, stamped and written on unless you are sending me cards you think I'd enjoy sending to others or the swap specifically states otherwise.

My favorite colors are dark pink, lime green and black (especially together).

I love nail polish, and am always on the look out for more (a gal can never have too much polish!) I love OPI, Rescue Beauty Lounge, Butter London and Sally Hansen polishes the best because of their wear times, chip resistance and the ease of their application. However I love ALL polishes lol so if it's something shimmery, duotone, glittery or just plain fun, I'm down with it! I'd love to get a true silver holo as I just haven't had the opportunity to pick one up yet. I like pinks and purples for my fingers. I'll wear just about anything on my toes lol

I'm always on the lookout for the following: blank notecards, washi tape, kawaii items (esp. frogs & owls), scrapbook/craft paper, 4 x 6 postcards naked, stamped and written on (they fit best in my album), scented wax tarts, 4 x 6 postcards that fit my above likes to send to others, touristy postcards from local area attractions (Particularly if they're cheesy and/or listed on http://www.roadsideamerica.com. I'd love a story about you visiting there on the back too!), stickers (no teacher's stickers though please), Baby Ruth candy bars and Bugles crunchy snacks, colored pens, especially pink, lime green & purple, easy recipes (I'm not the best cook. I especially appreciate slow cooker and OAMC recipes)), faeries, nail polish and Star Trek: The Next Generation stuff (I'm a bit of a geek...ok a big geek (and a nerd lol) but who's keeping track, right?)

Dislikes

Please don't send: stuff that looks like zero effort has been put into it, coffee, tea or dark chocolate, make-up (except lip gloss and nail polish), samples, 4 x 6 index cards with photos glued to them (that is NOT a post card btw), cell charms (can't use them), folded letter sets, lightly used items ok, but please don't send dirty or heavily used, if you didn't want it, I probably don't either

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my profile and try to fit my preferences into the swap! hugs

Comment: Do not feel bad that you give your kids meds for ADHD. My brother and sister in law have a child with ADHD and if they did NOT medicate, he would be dangerous. I have seen the before and after and I agree with it if it is needed!

Comment: thank you for this absolutely generous resend. So what happened in Casa Bonita that is memorable?
Response: As a family, we just always have a really great time when we go there. It is so much fun. But about six months before my best friend died, we went to Casa Bonita for her birthday she came up from Tucson Arizona and we re-created that South Park episode was telling you about so it's just a really really great place and I have a lot of fun there.

Just a heads up, @yamikolynn who owes you a swap from years ago, is back active on SB. Maybe you can finally get your swap.
