The last couple months have been trying. I've been coping with more medical tests and diagnosis. My kiddo has been battling ''pool foot" as well as an unknown bug bite that turned into a huge reaction.
I am slowly coming back to swapping. I know I have several swaps to get caught up on and I apologize for leaving those incomplete.
Please message me if you need anything. Just leaving something my kiddo loved is not how I operate and I am not one to make excuses. If I owe you a swap PLEASE let me know and I will do my very best to make it happen ASAP.
If you are the swapper who send my kiddo a calendar of France THANK YOU!
Crime Tv- Mentalist, Criminal Minds, Law and Order Hoarders, Storage Wars, The Good Wife, Without A Trace,
Mystery and Current Fiction
I have a NookColor and love it, but I read traditional books as well.
Crochet- hopelessly addicted to yarn (NO WOOL)
Drawing/Coloring- I just discovered colored pencils. Dover Coloring Books
I DON'T LIKE PINK
Single mommy to a great 12 yr old kiddo. Stuck in the Arizona desert. Gets hotter here every year. I work in banking.investments but my kiddo is homeschooled. We love all types of crafts!
NO WOOL. NO PINK
I love reading, watching tv, crocheting, paper crafts, learning to color pencil(hopeless)
And watching my kiddo on the swim team!
Parts of swapping are for my sons homeschool work. You could get a postcard/letter/note/card written by a child!
I guess I need to put some swapping info on here:
The color green, don't like any shade of pink I can use things flavored with Eucalyptus scent.(this is the only scent) I love to crochet and yarn is always welcome. I'm in quasi-art therapy and colored pencils, markers, journals and 'Dover' coloring books with moasic designs are in high demand.
More likes: pencils, smelly pencils(smencils), stickers, pens, markers, drawing stuff, bookmarks, wooden ornaments to color, wooden pieces to paint (usually at the craft store for under a buck in the holiday section). notepads, mini search a word books, colored pencils (you can buy 1-2 singles at the craft store)
My son really likes all things FRENCH, anything from France, related to France, in French.
He also loves art supplies and LEGO'S Science Fiction Books.
If the swap has a choice between a handmade card/item and store item the store item is preferred. I love to craft and understand the concept of swapping but my son is a severe asthmatic and right now he is struggling to breath.
GLUTEN FREE HOUSE
Dislikes: My son has asthma so try to keep things smoke free, cat free and long hair dog free.
I don't like the color pink.
I don't like religious things. I can't use lotions or bath stuff. Due to health reasons no baked goodies. I don't like greeting cards that have been turned into post cards No vampires, wearwolves, etc No junk, if its junk, throw it away!
I always try to do my best work when swapping. My 12 yr old son likes to help too. Sometimes a swap is the perfect fit for a homeschool assignment! Together we strive to make deadlines and make sure your item arrives safe and ontime. If you have a problem or something didn't arrive please let me know. I ship from the Automatic Postal Machine most times and on the rare occassion something goes missing.
Just for fun, This house believes in Santa, the Easter Bunny, Toothfaires and Leprechauns
I DON'T LIKE THE COLOR PINK (valentines day is purple , red, and other shiny colors, and I can make an exception to pink for this one day)
More things we like: (mostly my kiddo) Disney- mickey, donald, goofy etc (not the princesses) Mario Waldo M&M Characters Koolaid guy Mcdonald Characters Monster Trucks Hot Wheels ToyStory Alaska Hawaii- NOT kawaii
Dum Dum wrappers Box Tops for Education
I just 'inherited' or found a huge box of over 1200 vintage and old postcards. Probably from the 1950's to recent and from all over the world. I think this will make postcard swaps exciting and fun. I don't know the exact origin of the postcards but as far as I can tell they are smoke free. I am slowly sorting them into relevant categories. Swap on my friends.
This vintage collection is slowly dwindling down. My love of postcards and swapping has allowed these cards to be passed on. Hopefully others are enjoying them. I still have many left but no longer the 1200 I once started with!
I hate to add this section but I've just been flaked on

Angelbaby2 12 Holiday Cards For Me! 2011
I am in the middle of an unknown medical DX. I have been suffering with extreme hand pain that comes and goes. Sadly this effects my handwriting too. I apologize in advance if you can not read something. If you need a 'translation' please message me.
Kiddo has severe asthma ** **Gluten free house
I'm finally getting closer to a DX. I think all my pain and suffering is related to GLUTEN. If I'm in a food swap for myself please do not send items with GLUTEN. Some 'safe' items are: Lara Bars, Fruit Leathers, Jelly Bellies, most hard candies. K-Cups!!
Most of my swaps are postcard swaps. I do postcards because that is what my kiddo loves and he collects them.
What types of Post Cards do I like (kiddo like)?
My kiddo loves all things French, he loves dogs, he loves science and math, swim team, National Monuments and out of the way 'quirky' places.
My kiddo "JZM" loves to get mail - keep the pc's coming!
