May 17- a note to let you know that I may not be around much in the next couple of weeks but I won't be giving up SWAP-BOT. I'm a believer!
UPDATE Mar 5, this swapper @postcardz was suspended by the admin--I wasn't the only person who had a problem with her! I want to thank the site owners for being so diligent in keeping Swap-bot a fun place! Jan 3, 2012 I just received a 3 rating from a swapper that I am extremely upset about. Both she and the moderator have been informed about her unfairness. She has even threatened me with a one! People like this can ruin the swapbot experience but fortunately my experience is usually fun. I refuse to let it spoil my enjoyment.
Dec 2011 -- I received a cute postcard from nmterrier. However, it doesn't say what swap. Please let me know so I can rate you!.
Dec 2011 -- I'm just coming out of my swapping slump! I like swapping.
July 2011 -- I'm going to cut back to minimal swapping for the summer. If you would like to send me a message, please be patient because I won't be checking in every day. I believe I've sent out all my swaps but if you haven't received one from me, please let me know!
2011 New Year's resolution Be more active and PROMPT on Swap-bot. UPDATE Feb 2011. I'm already faltering. Must focus more! I did great for awhile there. UPDATE: April 2011, I'm back on track! UPDATE: June 2011. I'm flagging late on too many swaps. I'm so sorry, partners! I'm sending them as fast as I can.
I'm not that artistic or crafty but I appreciate and admire the work of others. I love to dabble myself.
My children are grown and I'm reaching "mature" age. I have 6 grandchildren.
I live in Virginia, but I have traveled and I love postcards from other places. Love to read genre fiction. I'm also a writer.
NO food or beverage items please.
I appreciate humorous references to the passing years, like the Maxine greeting cards.
Fairy tale pictures, books and knick knacks
I love scented soaps and lotions. Handmade soaps.
Favorite colors: different shades of red, earthy tones. Bright, bold colors.
Postcards (see below)
Pretty notecards and paper.
Personal anecdotes and stories, either on a postcard, note card or just stuck in with another swap. I like learning about people.
place mats - homey, elegant, plain or fancy.
I love ATCs even though I can't make very good ones.
Origami is cool. I just discovered an interest in it. I also like Zentangles.
Interesting jewelry. But I DON'T have pierced ears.
I just discovered I love the look of "Zetti" art! It's based on the art of Teesa Moore. I've seen bookmarks, postcards, atc's, dolls, etc made by people on Swap-bot. They're a lot of work, but I'm going to try to learn.
For an idea of some of the things I like: Etsy favorites
I love all kinds of postcards. Beautiful , unusual, touristy, funny, homemade, vintage... The list goes on and on.
I'm looking for some cards with the State name in big letters. Cards from outside the USA are always welcome!
Contemporary romance.multicultural romance. SF. Fantasy. Managing and succeeding in home business. How to books on writing. Thrillers and suspense.

2/3/2011 currently I have 2 postcards I am uncertain of what swap they belong to. One is from Silela in Michigan. the Other is from Bevmac in Winnepeg. I'd love to rate you if I can find out what swap it is.
I always send and I always rate. If it's been awhile, please give me a poke. Sometimes things get busy around here; however I want it to remain fun for you and for me.
I've been a swap bot member since Dec 2008 and it has been a great experience for the most part.
I strive to fulfill the expectations of each swap I enter. If you don't feel that I have complied, please send me a PM and I'll try to work it out with you. I NEVER 'expect' a heart. It's pleasant to get one but I do this for the fun of swapping.
By the same token, I give out Hearts when I feel especially heartened (pun intended! grin) by the gift. Giving you a five means that I appreciated your gift and I was happy to receive it. PLEASE don't question my reasons for not giving you a heart! My reasons are my own and do not reflect on you or your offering. According to the rules of Swap-bot, no one can EXPECT a heart.
I love swap-bot and hope this won't keep me out of any swaps.
