About Me


When I first joined swap-bot I was brand new to swapping but I have had so much fun since joining. I've learned new things while making new friends.

I will NEVER flake on a swap so please PM me before rating. I will do my best to correct or resend the swap.

I do reuse packaging and don't mind a bit if you do too =)

I try to rate the day I receive a swap so if you have not been rated by me (after a reasonable delivery time) please contact me.

I've lived in Michigan my entire life. I'm single with no kids but I do have two cats Paris and Jamaica.

I've been an ultrasonographer for 20 + yrs.

I work so I can travel. I love to visit new places both here in the states and in other countries. For many years I traveled with my penpal from England. Now that she is married with kids I sometimes still travel with her but now we bring her whole family along.

Favorite Crafts

I've been doing craft projects for as long as I can remember. If it was popular at the time I probably attempted it(macrame or hodge-podge anyone?)

Right now the main craft I'm involved in is circle and long loom knitting. I've mainly made hats and scarves but hope to move up to socks next.

Most of my hats I knit are donated to different charities that collect them for the homeless or for patients undergoing chemotherapy.

I'm a novice in regards to papercrafting. I've tried a little orgami but am jealous of all you truly talented paper artists.

Things I Collect

I collect matchbooks but they are hard to find now with all the no smoking laws(I myself am a non-smoker).

I also collect golfballs. Not the plain white ones but the ones that you buy on vacation that have emblems on them like The Eiffel Tower. I keep them in a large glass fishbowl.

I've collected pressed pennies for a long time and the pressed penny swaps have allowed me to add many new ones to my collection =)

I think my largest collection is refrigerator magnets. I have ones from museum exhibits, funny ones and vacation ones.

Running second to magnets I love bags. I always buy those reusable bags most stores are selling now. I buy a lot of them on vacation. They make cheap souvenirs not just for myself but for family and friends.

I must admit though that the one item I always buy on vacation is a Christmas ornament. Each year as I hang them on the tree they remind me of the good times I had while on that vacation.

Favorite Movie/TV Show

One of my favorite movies is "Shawshank Redemption". Everytime It's on TV it sucks me into watching it.

My favorite TV show is The Amazing Race. I've seen every episode. I like seeing the places that they travel to that I will never be able to visit.


I love Snoopy and Woodstock.

I really like the color Blue.... Pepto Bismal Pink not so much.

I don't like cherries but can eat them if I have too.

Black licorice keep it away from me I REALLY DISLIKE it or anything that tastes like it (anise, ouzo etc..)

I love earrings. I like the kind that dangle. I don't really wear the ones that are on posts or studs. I always try to buy a pair on vacation that represent that trip (Celtic from Scotland etc...)

I Love Love lip glosses. All types, colors etc.. I've almost never met a tube I didn't like (the dollar store ones are just tooo sticky)

I didn't realize until filling out this profile how much I must really like scarves (of all types) considering how many I have.

I like milk and dark chocolate (Cadbury Twirl - I Love You)

White chocolate I'll pass on (but my mom loves it)

Dislike loose confetti and glitter in envelopes because it just gets everywhere and a month later you are still finding it.

My hair is short so I really don't have any use for hair accessories.

I don't really need any ephemera. I don't dislike it I just have no use for it at this time.

I don't really care for coffee. I only drink it when it has flavored creamer or chocolate in it, but I do have a Tassimo machine so I can make it for guests.

Wish List

World Peace =)

That Mother Nature would take her meds and calm down!!!!!

Yarn - I have a stash but can always use more. Except 100% wool (unless it's Merino) because that just makes me itch itch itch. I hope to try to make socks so sock yarn is welcome. I'm really having fun making spa bags lately so cotton yarn would be welcome also.

If you are sending me socks I wear size 9 US. Surprise me with type and style =)

Address labels with my name and address.

I'm going to join the crowd and say Deco Tape :)

Anything on my Likes/Collections lists.

Fat Quarters- Because I like to surprise my mom "the quilter" with pretty fabrics.

If you took the time and effort to make it for me I will like it =)

What a wonderful package you sent for the Potluck Giveaway! I am so pleased with the hot chocolate. It's going to be a real treat on cold winter nights. The Christmas fat quarter is so pretty! I love the design. I am making Santas for my family, and this is going to be perfect for their little scarves. Thank you so much!

toothteri on Nov 28, 2013:

Thanks so much for your giftie for AL WTA# 15. I am trying hard to save them until Christmas but I am feeling weak! Must be all the ads we see here for Black Friday making me feel like it should be Christmas already. Have a great Thanksgiving!

Lizard on Nov 4, 2013:

YAY! I get to send to you for the small stocking of goodies! =^.^=

I am glad you have such a variety of likes on your profile, that makes it so much easier to include things you will like. I am excited about this swap, because I am keeping all my little Christmas things unopened until Christmas. Well, that's my goal!

I've actually been putting all advent, stocking stuffers, etc in a container straight away, then putting it out of sight so that I can keep my nosey self out of it and have a truly wonderful Christmas day instead of my usual humdrum day - seeing as I live alone with my animals.

I am printing out your likes list and looking forward to shopping for you! ♥

Happy swapping.
