PostPosted: 0    Post subject: Attention all Sock/Card Swap Participants!

I start this thread every year so all the Holiday Swap people can get to know each other a little better, and I thought it would be nice to start one for the Sock/Card Swap people. That way you can personalize your swap packages, and not have to wade through all the pages of the other thread. I'm not really sure if it's needed for the card swap, since we're only sending cards, but better safe than sorry.

So here are some questions (along with my answers), just respond with your answers and anything else you think we need to know.


Please only make one post, if you think of something else just edit your original post, don't add another.

Favorite Colors? Purple, turquoise, blue, green, silver. I hate earth tones, red or yellow.

Favorite animal or pony? Kitties (of course!), hamsters, mice. Actually any small furry creature.

Favorite candy or snack? Any alleregies? I'm on a low carb diet, so I'm not eating much candy. A little dark chocolate is nice. I also drink a lot of flavored hot tea.

Do you have kids? What are their ages? How about pets? A 21 year old son with no interest in ponies, and 2 spoiled cats-Baby and Ms.PIB (short for pain-in-the-butt). Her real name is Freckles.

Do you like jewelry, hair things, or handmade items? Not really, although I would never turn down a custom pony or LPS!

Do you like candles or scented lotions/creams? Favorite scents? Any scents you just can't stand? I'm sort of picky about smells, nothing floral please except B&BW Rain Kissed Leaves. I like pumpkin, gingerbread, peppermint, apple, cinnamon.

Other tidbits of information? I also collect little elephants with their trunks up (a raised trunk is good luck!). I also love Snoopy & Woodstock, Winnie the Pooh and anything with song birds, dragonflies or fairies. I?m always looking for cat or pony stickers to put on packages that I mail out. I crochet, do crafts, and read constantly.


Your winter holiday? Not sure if this really matters this year since the shipping deadline is after the holidays. I celebrate Christmas-Either the religous Madonna and child version or Santa, as long as it's over the top, lit up, wrapped up Christmas!


I hope everybody has a blast this year with all the swaps this year!

Favorite Colors?Pink, turquoise blue, white, red, purple Smile

Favorite animal or pony? Cats! Happy As for ponies, I really like Princess Celestia, Rarity and DJ-Pon3 :).

Favorite candy or snack? Any allergies?
Sweet, tangy candy like Sweet Tarts, Life Savers or Skittles. I also love milk chocolate, by itself or with minty flavors. Seasonal cookies like Christmas Oreos and seasonal candies like peppermint candy canes are good too.

Do you have kids? What are their ages? How about pets?
No kids yet ^^ and I don't have any pets, but my boyfriend has a cat that I love as my own Smile

Do you like candles or scented lotions/creams? Favorite scents? Any scents you just can't stand? I don't really have much use for candles except when there's a blackout Poke Tounge but I will appreciate a good moisturizing cream since my hands get too dry during winter. My favorite scents are gardenia flower, citrus scents like orange, flowery pot-pourri, vanilla, strawberry and fresh forest or ocean-like scents. I can't stand cinnamon or peppermint scented stuff for some reason >_< and I don't like watermelon either.

Other tidbits of information? I'm a customizer, so craft items are always welcome! I also like Hello Kitty items or cat-related anything xD. I also do beadworking, so any charms or beads are good too.

Do you like jewelry, hair things, or handmade items? I love jewelry :D. I haven't had any time to design new stuff for myself, so a little help will be welcome ^^. Pony customs are definitely welcome too! YAY!

Your winter holiday? Christmas Smile but I'm also a big believer in Angels, so anything related to Angels is well-received!

I am just in the card swap, so I don't know how useful any of this is going to be, but anyways...

Favorite Colors? Purple and silver

Favorite animal or pony? Horses, Sun Bears, Red Panda and Apple Jack, Twinkler and Rainbow Dash

Do you have kids? What are their ages? How about pets? 2 kids, a 6y/o boy and a 2 y/o girl. I also have 2 dogs

Other tidbits of information? Nothing I can think of that will be relevant to a greeting card... I am trying to teach my son about how other people celebrate these holidays, so if you could include some info about how you do so I could read it to him, I'd be very appreciative. But it's totally not necessary.

Your winter holiday? Christmas, but in a totally non-religious way. That doesn't mean you can't send me religious cards however, like I said above, trying to teach my son about people's differences.

Favorite Colors? Periwinkle & Lilac, but all shades of blue and purple are great. I really dislike Pink though

Favorite animal or pony? Armadillo

Favorite candy or snack? Any alleregies? I prefer salty over sweet, home made chex mix is a favorite treat, i love dill pickle flavor and green olives. For sweets, I prefer fruity flavors and carmel. I also like hot cider and hot tea. NO chocolate please.

Do you have kids? What are their ages? How about pets? No kids, just a hubby & a cat, Valerie (she prefers flannel catnip toys, no treats please) and a doberman, Niko (he is a big dog so no small toys please, he does love squeaky toys though, no Greenies or rawhides please they make him sick)

Do you like jewelry, hair things, or handmade items? I wear pierced earrings and necklaces (nothing too blingie though), I have pretty long hair but it doesn't cooperate well, I do love those hair sticks though (like chopsticks for your hair). I love handmade items!

Do you like candles or scented lotions/creams? Favorite scents? I try not to use candles much with a cat and 80 lb dog running around, but I just got into Sentsy. Lotions and creams are good too, I always have dry hands. I prefer light, clean scents, nothing overly floral or strong. Please make sure that there is nothing with eucalyptus oil in it, I am severly allergic.

Other tidbits of information? I love to read, its one of my favorite pass times! I also really enjoy music (honestly I would love a mix cd you create). I also enjoy arts and crafts, one I do a lot is Scherenschnitte, a form of paper cutting and I am always looking for new patterns.


Your winter holiday? I celebrate christmas, both christian and santa, but I prefer the christian music. half my house is decorated in red and green (with precious moments angels) and the other half is blue and silver

This is just cross posted from the Holiday Swap, so it's filled with TONS of info that might not be so useful to my card swap partners.

Favorite Colors? I don't really have specific favorite colors (although I'm not a huge fan of orange). I suppose I like Blues, Purples, Greens, Reds, Yellows, Silver/Grey... I know that's like every color except orange! Just fun colors Smile

Favorite animal or pony? I really don't like wolves! I have a Jack Russell who is the most awesome dog in the world! And I totally flip flop about my favorite pony! Two of my favs right off the top of my head are Baby Stripes and Baby Starflower. But there are definitely others. I love all ponies!

Favorite candy or snack? Any allergies? I'm a vegetarian, so no gelatin please! You'll find gelatin in most gummy/marshmallow candies, so it's usually a good idea to stay away from any gummy candy. I don't like pineapple, sour/hot candy, or peanut butter and chocolate mixed, but I LOVE milk chocolate stuff and popcorn. Other than that, candy is candy Smile

Do you have kids? What are their ages? How about pets? No children (for reference, I'm 23), but I do have a Jack Russell named Paisley who I'm obsessed with!!

Do you like candles or scented lotions/creams? Favorite scents? Any scents you just can't stand? I do love nice smelling things. Not a fan of strong perfumey smells, patchouli, or floral smells. I love fresh and sweet/gourmand smells. Fresh like citrus or cucumber melon and sweet like cupcakes and vanilla.

Other tidbits of information? I LOVE nail polish. Definitely a nail polish addict. I also love anything cupcake related, whether it's something with cupcakes on it, or something related to baking cupcakes. And like I said, I'm obsessed with my Jack Russell!

Do you like jewelry, hair things, or handmade items? I'm not skilled enough to do very much with my hair, but I love jewelry and handmade things are always wonderful!! (Keep in mind that if you make bracelets or something, I have TINY wrists)

Your winter holiday? I celebrate Christmas, but I certainly am not offended by other holidays! But I do love winter things moreso than Christmas things if that makes sense? I love more winter themed things like snowflakes or as opposed to things like Santa (if that makes sense!). But definitely pretty snowflakes are my favorite thing about this whole season and holiday!
