About Me

PLEASE NOTE: If I mark a swap as being sent and that day has no mail delivery, it's because I put it in a USPS box by our mail room. If it's not in the box by the time the mail comes, it doesn't get picked up till the next day.

Anyways, I always mark the swap as being sent the minute it goes into the mail slot because if I didn't, I'd be afraid of totally forgetting to mark it sent at all.

Hi! My name is Debi and am a 62 year old Christian woman.

A bit about me, I'm divorced, have 2 kids who are grown and on their own and also have 7 grand-kids and am a GREAT-Grandma to Jax and Kayden and baby Madilynn was born @ 12:06 a.m., Oct. 25, 2018.

Besides my kids and grand-kids, I have a very spoiled cat named Kyla, who turned 8 in July of 2018. [Yep, that's her in the picture below!]


Seeking Business Cards

I am just starting a new hobby of collecting Business Cards so would like any that someone does not want.

There are two specific categories that I really want to collect now and those are:

  • Any and all law enforcement business cards

  • Any and all U.S. military business cards

I love other cards as well but the law enforcement and military would be way extra special to me!

Favorite Crafts

  • Plastic canvas
  • Bullet Journaling
  • Smashbooks
  • Junk Journals
  • Reading on my Kindle [I love it!]
  • My personal Filofax Malden [that I've named Mia Mald"ee"n. lol]

I also love vintage photos as well, especially the regular sized pictures of anybody [don't worry, if the photo isn't identified and you don't know who the person is ... I'll give them a name. LOL]

I love paper crafts and have a hard time throwing any papers away and though I have a lot of papers [many bits and pieces], I still would welcome any sent. Love cute pictures!

My Likes & Dislikes

Well, of course - first on my list is: Business Cards [any - old, new, borrowed or blue. lol] Oh the thrill of a new hobby, I'm so excited!

Postcards [or pictures] of carousels, getting letters in the mail and pretty address labels.

  • Would absolutely love and treasure any postcards of: Castles; Israel; England; Swansea,MA; Gone With the Wind; Carousels and any on the Royal Family, Jane Austen, Downton Abbey or those that might have a writing in a different language on the front!

Also would love a card from Yulee, Florida if anyone should have one and a card sent from Jerusalem as well.

  • Pretty cancelled stamps

  • Anything on or about the Royal Family [especially Princess Di, William, Kate and the kids and or Prince Harry and Megan and their babies (when she has them, that is!)

I really have no special love for Price Charles or Camilla so would not like anything about them.

  • I absolutely adore fine nibbed fountain pens and writing with them! Nope, I'm not hinting or asking for any because I have plenty of them, but just throwing in here with my likes, how much I love writing with them. I'd never used one until December 2015 and I immediately fell in love the minute I put the pen to paper!


  • Anything with skulls

  • Anything dark or evil

  • No adult themes

Private Letter Swaps

I love doing letter swaps but due to postage, I limit those to people here in the US.

Please, if you love writing letters and ...

  1. Aren't a flaker

  2. You write more than just a "note" [to me, actually ... any letter under 5 pages front and back, to me ... IS "just a note"!]

  3. Have legible writing that I can read [Lord, I know I sound picky but there's nothing worse than getting a nice letter to read but you can't make the words out and it happens far more than I would ever have thought it would. It's very frustrating!

    ... Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to do a one on one letter swap with me.

I love getting letters from those who put some thought or effort into their letters as I do and I guess what I mean by thought or effort is that you ... write a long enough letter.

It doesn't have to be written about anything in particular and in fact as for myself, I gab about anything, everything and sometimes even nothing at all. LOL

I'm just not one to like short letters, and even less is liking ones with huge writing that are trying to just fill up a page and are saying nothing in the process, just to hurry and get a swap completed. lol]

Helpful Tips

The following is copied from my friend, Karla's swap-bot page (she's no longer @ swap-bot), sadly to say so I thought I'd borrow these and put on my page so I can get to them quicker when needed.


If you want to trick out your profile, with links, pictures, etc., here is a helpful post from Swap-bot's blog. Click here.

Thanks go to @tiggerkitn25 for this link to an assortment of characters you can copy and paste into your profile, swaps, groups, and posts.


Just enclose the URL in parentheses and then use whatever word you want to make clickable (for example "link") and enclose it in brackets right before the parentheses'd URL. So if you wanted to say "Here's the link" and make the word "link" clickable, just enclose the word "link" in brackets (don't use my quotation marks) and immediately after the word in brackets, put your URL which is enclosed in parentheses.

Just remember brackets then parentheses.

So, it's like this (now, right below this is an example). Okay - there is a space between the ] at the end of where it says link and the first ( at the beginning of the http://). To make this work, you have to take that space out. I didn't do it here because if I had, it would have done it and I wouldn't have been able to show you how to do it.

[link] (http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/163848)

With the space taken out between the end bracket and open parenthesis, will give you a clickable word "link".

For those who haven't done and want to try it out, you can try it in your comment section on your swap-bot profile page!

NRGordon rated for E swap tell us your story May 2019 on Jun 5, 2019
Comment: Thank you for your story. I like "wordy" and detailed. I have to tell you, I am not at all a cat person. When I started reading, my thought was "Oh no... she is going to write 2000 words about her cat." but I never stopped smiling as I read it through to the end. Don't tell any one but I have been warming up to cats for a while now. Other people's cats. I'm not going to run out and get one. Best Wishes, Neal
Response: Neal, thank you so much for the awesome rating. I'm glad that the story kept you smiling as you read it. Hearing that, made my day!

Quick and Easy Profile Message Swap-- Hello Debi, It was interesting to read you live in Titusville. My grandmother's sister lived there here entire adult life and my grandmother also lived there with her on and off at times. I remember seeing the photos and hearing the stories about life there. I liked hearing about the Amish they would see from time to time. I hope you have a lovely New Year's 2018!!!!

TereDiane1954 on Apr 18, 2016:

I got your nice long letter today, Debi. (When you write a letter, you don't mess around with three lines, do you?) I enjoyed it so much! And I like the brochures about the history of Titusville and the fun things there are to do. Many thanks, and a big hug♥
