About Me

Thank you to swap-bot, coordinators, and all of you swappers. The ones that do not flake, that is. :)

If you are waiting for me to rate, let me know maybe I did not receive. If you are going to rate me a 1 or 3, perhaps you can send me a pm first. I do try my hardest to follow what the requirements are for the swaps I do. Ask yourself would you want someone to rate you a 1 or 3? :)

I ALWAYS mail out my swaps. I have done a few private ones, so I am trustworthy.

I enjoy movies A LOT!! Probably too much!!!

I collect post cards. They can be naked, of anything, already addressed and written on to/from someone else, handmade are my favorite.

I also collect cow ornaments. Yes, you read that correctly. I have a tree that I put up all my cow ornaments. I am on the look out for them all year round. I look for different ones, such as a cow that is a fish.

I do reuse envies that come my way. I am also into making my own envies. I have done the upcycled swaps which is a whole lot of FUN!

I am into Paper Crafting. I do cards mainly, but am dabbling a bit into alter art. With this hobby I like rubber stamps-it does not matter if they are clear, wood, hand carved, from the $1 bin, used as long as when inked the image can still be seen and able to be used, inks, embellishments, Copic markers or markers in general, adhesives, ribbon/fibers, I like to get stamped images that I can color (Yes, I still enjoy coloring I must be a kid at heart), cut pieces of paper (card stock, prints, hand made paper), hand made envies, all different sizes of punched papers from using punches.

I am a vegetarian so nothing with cheese, chicken/beef stock or gelatin. Marshmallows, spongy candies usually contains gelatin. Examples are juju candies, Swedish fish, etc. If you do not know please ask. :) Remember I live in Arizona. It is HOT here, pretty much 9 months out of the year. It will melt, put in a separate baggie to avoid ruining the actual swap. Especially if you put a lot of time and effort into making something. Thanks! :)

A Little Bit More About Me

I (heart) to receive a note inside of the swap you are mailing to me. This is one of my reasons for joining this site. I enjoy hearing about where you live, how you live, things that have made you sad, smile, or mad. My DH lives and works in CA so going to the mail box to see mail other than bills puts a (smile) on my face.

I do drink teas (green/herbal).

I live in Arizona, but am originally from Michigan hence my screen name.

I LOVE George Strait!! I do listen to others stations as well. Recently over the holidays I was with my Mom in her new car. It has Satellite Radio. Talk about all the stations. I think about 100 to 180, but there were gaps. I was in heaven trying all of them out.

If you are looking for something to send to me, a handmade compilation of music would work.

I read a lot so book markers are always nice to receive.

I do watch a lot of Television. Probably too much, but I enjoy going away, being immersed into another world.

I LOVE vegan items from "Lush".

I do enjoy receiving address labels or swap cards.

Stickers although do not use reward ones. I write snail mail letters to my niece and nephew, plus when I write to friends that I know have little kids I add a few stickers. The kids think this is the greatest. I remember my Grandma would write to me and include something. I continue to write to my Great Aunt. This form of communication is slowly dwindling. So sad! :(

Socks soft/theme ones, no toed ones, wear a size 9.

Pretty much anything altered.

I like plants, flowers and nature, animals, quirky things, and travel related items.

I enjoy receiving anything that is hand made even if it is your first time, but that you took the time to do it up nicely.

I am a stuff person. Meaning I can find use for a lot of different things.

I am into neutral colors. I do not care for HOT colors such as fluorescents. For some reason my eyes hurt.

I do not care for items received smelling of smoke.

Personal products that I can not use.

Candles unless they are soy. Keep in mind for about 9 months of the year certain items sent in the mail does melt. Always put in a plastic bag of its own.

I LOVE {RED VINES} not Twizzlers. I know they are not vegan.

Am not into beading.

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, do let me know.

If you are going to be late let me know. I am pretty easy going or at least try to be.

Shame On You and Angels

At times I feel as if I have the worst luck regarding swaps, but then again I have the best luck as I have had some WONDERFUL Angels. I guess it is a good/bad thing. I know things get lost in the mail, but respond to emails or resend. All it takes is communication. :)

About My Cat and Dog

1 dog (Blackjack) and 1 cat (Fluffernutter). Both animals were rescued. Kitty was the neighbors that were renting. They moved out, but he stayed. DH ran into neighbor at store one day. Said did come back to get kitty, but he jumped into our yard. I guess he did not want to go with them. Neighbors could have asked us to get him.

Beej was across the street one July. Now if you know anything about Arizona you know how hot it gets. She was so sick. Covered in ticks, dehydrated, emaciated. She spent 3 nights in the Maricopa County Animal Care Center. They were to have done her female surgery, but she was too sick. I picked her up, took her to a vet, the vet said if I took her back they would more than likely put her down or I could try a blood transfusion. Her gums were white. The ticks had bled her dry. I had never saw a real live tick until I met her. The vet did say he was not 100% sure she would survive. She spent 2 nights in Emergency Animal Hospital. She wound up having blood transfusions. Poor thing! Long story short, she is the sweetest thing. Black n White, Cocker Spaniel. I finally got my live cow. Ha ha!!
