I am a stay at home mother to 3 rambunctious boys (ages Richard 8, Joesph 8, and Austin 5). I have been with my soulmate, an EMT/Firefighter for almost 9 years now. I am presently taking my last class for my Healthcare Administration/Medical Records degree. Slowly but surely I am finally getting to where I want to be in life, aside from the two pleasures in life I already have (my children and my husband).
I enjoy crafting of all sorts. Beading and paper crafts in general take the lead. I love going to my mailbox and seeing mail I enjoy rather than just bills. It lights up my trip out to the black box on the side of the road - lol. I love to make homemade envies, decos, matchboxes & ATCs! My favorite color is any and all shades of green. My favorite color combination is either green/black, pink/black, or brown/baby blue.
SMOKERS - If you and I are swapping and you or someone in your house smokes, please email me and let me know. Although it does not bother me personally, I have a son who is very sensitive to cigarette smoke, and I will need to open the package outside in case the smell is too strong when first opened. Please do not be offended, I just have to be careful for my son. Thank you ahead of time. =]
If you do not receive something from me that I was supposed to send, please please please let me know. I will be happy to recreate and resend!
Don't be worried to send me something. If I can not find a use for it I will pass it on to someone else who I think may be able to enjoy it.
Also, because of the cost of shipping now-a-days, I usually only sign up for USA/Canada swaps. However, if you are located internationally and interested in swapping with me, shoot me an email an we can work something out! =]
I LOVE swapping and always put alot of time and effort into my swaps. If I add somthing to your package it's because I think you might like it, not because I'm expecting a heart. What I do expect is acknowledgement; that you have at least received your swap. You may not love it - or even believe that we have the same definition of "art"... But I HOPE you will and I guarantee that I will try my hardest so that you WILL LOVE it. So PLEASE take a moment and RATE!
To my partners, I PROMISE to rate as soon as I receive your swap! If I have not rated you it's because I haven't received anything. But I am human and may forget so if you are concerned PLEASE send me a PM and I will rate ASAP!! Everyone deserves to be rated!!â™¥
The one thing I was hoping for on this site was to never be flaked upon.. and to not have to make this category.. but unfortunately, I've had to! blah!
@Bamagirl2010 Flaked on Ultimate Year of Happy Mail #1, Resolutions
In January 2011 I practically dropped off the face of the earth. I was assigned for 2 swaps.. and due to multiple reasons found myself putting them off, putting them off, and putting them off. At the beginning of the year I almost lost a $15,000 deposit we had put on a house. Once we finally got that solved and were able to move into our new home, medical issues arose, followed by other personal issues - and ultimately Swap-bot became the LAST thing on my mind. But I am not making excuses.
However... I am back full force. I have both swaps ready to go but ran into an issue. Swap #1 I haven't been able to get a response back from my partner as they haven't been online since Thanksgiving week. Swap #2, after speaking with the host my partner apparently has since flaked on them, and the person who angeled for my spot has also since flaked. The host advised me they didn't feel it was right for me to send to either party.. but instead offer to angel for someone else. I am in the process of searching for an angel spot. =/
I know at first it will be hard for me to get back into swapping because of my "flaking" in December/January. But I promise to all of you out there - Flaking is NOT my thing and it will NOT happen again.
