About Me

ABOUT SWAPS:

I am new to swapping but I know how to read the rules and meet deadlines! I am excited to see where this leads. I love connecting with people and stories and can't wait to see where it leads...I plan on re-using some of the packaging as I am able to recycle. I also commit to leaving honest feedback.

ME:

I am including quite a bit about me below just to make it easier for any of those that like a lot of options! However, I love discovering new things out in the world! I am very open minded and am not a picky person by any means. I don't mind things that make a mess (envelope confetti and glitter - I mention this because I see a lot of people that say "Don't".) I don't want to place a lot of rules on what you send. I want to let you send what you like - the best part is getting an envelope with "you" in it!

However, after a handful of swaps I do need to add a Do Not Send list: No kiddie items - this does not include comics or 80-90s cartoons lol .... I love these as you can see below. I don't need stickers or cutouts for things that are directed towards preschool aged kids. I don't have young children at home and really don't have a use for these. No military related items - I don't have any military associations directly so I don't really have a direct use for these either. No religious items other than Christian. I typically don't send religious items unless the swap is titled this way. I am okay with Christian related items as I am a Christian. However, please don't send religious items from other faiths as I don't personally have a use for them and don't really know what to do with them.

INTRO: I am 37 years old, divorced, and have a wonderful 15 year old son at home. I work full time as a critical care nurse. I have 2 cats that are 8 years old - brother and sister born from the same litter.

CRAFTS: I love to sew - quilts, bags, and small items like mug rugs and key fobs. I love and respect all handmade items that others make and this is precisely why I joined this site! I can't wait to see what others are making. I am just starting to dabble in papercrafts - postcards, maybe ATCs, and cards, junk journaling. I hardly know what I am doing yet lol. I make badge holders sometimes for my co-workers out of pins picked up from Goodwill or bottlecaps and photos. I can't draw anything that resembles what it should. I love the idea of trading my sewn goods for other art goods that aren't sewing/quilting.

READING: I like reading most anything (both fiction and non-fiction). My all time favorite fiction book is Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth. I am currently reading the 4th book in the Outlander series. I am on the third book of The Lord of The Rings series if you count The Hobbit as the first. I love reading about worlds that are vastly different than my own. I have such a variety of interests in books. You are welcome to take a look at my Amazon book wishlist (link below). I basically treat this list as my "books to read in the future" list. There are a number of books on there that were recommended to me and I didn't want to forget them.

ENTERTAINMENT: I love playing 3rd person adventure video games like Zelda BOTW, The Witcher 3, Assassin's Creed, anything Mario. I love Masters of the Universe, Smurfs, Jem and the Holograms, Garfield, and I Hate FairlyLand (I love it actually but that is the name of it lol). You can see that I LOVE 80s and 90s cartoons!

PLANNER LIFE: I love organizing anything and everything - planners, making lists for everything, planner stickers, writing utensils, decorated paperclips, bookmarks, etc. I often wonder why people like me love office supplies so much? Who knows...but I know that I am not alone lol

MOVING AROUND: I love the outdoors - camping, hiking, jogging...I am not really into girly stuff like makeup, hair, and clothes.

HOLIDAYS/THEMES/COLORS: My favorite holiday decorations/theme is Halloween. My favorite color is green (specifically olive green but truly I love all shades). I love all animals - cute animals, funny animals - I have 2 cats. Oh wait...I dislike snakes and scorpions.

BE GREEN: I love the environment and nature and go out of my way to re-use, recycle and simply try to cause less harm to the earth. I love finding clothing at Goodwill on $1 Thursdays and altering it in some way to make it new. I love re-using and upcycling anything I can come up with (okay fine...anything Pinterest comes up with lol).

FOOD: I am a lover of all foods with truly no favorites in this category. The only things I don't like are slimy stuff like anchovies, octopus, and oysters. It's really fun to discover new snacks or sweets that I don't have locally. If I am participating in a chocolate swap - I like them all! - milk chocolate, dark chocolate, weird chocolate lol I do not have any allergies to anything.

WHAT I EXPECT FROM SWAP-BOT: I am hoping to connect with people from all over the world. I love learning about people and different ways of living other than my own. It is so much fun to receive happy mail, but without the people/stories behind it there wouldn't be as much joy and connection! Swapping should be fun and without stress, no drama, just loving, positive people trying to connect and grow!

OTHER: I also love the idea of receiving handmade cards, poems, short stories, drawings that you have done...I love handmade anything period. In particular, the cards I would love to mail them out to my patients after they are discharged from the hospital to thank them for allowing me to care for them.

If there is anyone out there willing to trade ATC or crafted rolodex cards for my sewn items - I would love that! I love art and drawings but I can't draw myself....maybe some of you don't sew but would love handmade sewn items...win - win!

MY WISHLISTS: I can't get the URL links to work in the box actually created for it so I will manually post them below...I did email the "people" by clicking on the help box but I haven't received a response. Just copy/paste in your browser.

Comment: Thank you! Your card beautiful! Thank you for the extras for my Hope, she loves them! Your answers was in agreement with mine! Trust=Peace! The more we go to Bible studies the more comfortable we become, that’s what I believe to be true. Hopefully as Christians we won’t judge one another in this setting, but encourage one another to understand The Word of God! God Bless you ❤️
Response: Thank you for the compliment on the card! I am new to card making so I need all of the encouragement I can get lol. Also, I am glad Hope loves the kit I sent. Thank you for the encouragement on the bible study too! Happy Holidays!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely handmade card. Once you start paper crafting you won’t want to stop. And you’ll have more paper than you know what to do with it.

Comment: Wow, your package was awesome. I can't wait to start using them. And, I see you subscribe to Cocoa Daisy too. Did you order the new confidential kit?
Response: I actually don't subscribe to them. I have a close friend who subscribes several kits from them regularly and she gifts a lot to me! I love it all!

Comment: so many cool goodies!! Thank you very much I cant wait to use these items :) Very neat little key fob too <3<3<3 also just an fyi there was a postage due ($1.60) 10/14 Hey Tina! Hope youre having a great weekend, I just got your postage due refund, I really do appreciate it. I didnt mean to compel you to do that. Hope you're still enjoying the site. Thank you for the extra goodies too those leaf die cuts are some of my favorite things! <3
Response: I am not sure how that happened as I used the scale/automated machine at the post office to determine the postage...can't help but wonder if the machine or the postman made a mistake eek! .... nevertheless, it did happen and I appreciate you letting me know! I will be dropping the difference in the mail to you today. If you don't mind please place an update on your feedback after you receive it so I know it arrived....thanks!
