How Did I Get Here?

There used to be a site specifically for swapping fabric postcards - 25 swappers in each bunch! I made hundreds. When they shut that down, someone referred me to Swap-Bot.

Some stuff that I've made: Etsy Shop Product Examples

Did Something Go Missing?

Please let me know if you were entitled to a swap item from me and didn't receive it. I ALWAYS send. The only way that I know if something has gone missing is if you tell me, so help me help you!

I also try hard to rate everything that I receive. If something slips through the cracks, my apologies, and feel free to remind me.

Stuff I Like To Buy

  • fountain pens and ink
  • fountain pen friendly paper and notebooks
  • mechanical pencils
  • gel pens
  • stationery supplies (washi, staplers, glue, hole punches, etc)

Stuff I like to make

  • junk journals
  • Midori Traveler and Faux-Dori notebooks
  • quilts and other sewing projects
  • food - I enjoy cooking

Stuff I like to do

  • read (memoirs, magical realism, crime/mysteries, entertaining non-fiction)
  • see movies in a theater
  • badminton, and I'm about to try pickleball
  • nap - I'm retired and I love that I get to nap whenever I want to

Dislikes

  • Markdown language. I'm a retired programmer and have done a fair bit of web development, but this Swap-Bot markdown language to format profile information drives me nuts. I can never get my profile to look like I want it to.
  • Stingy raters. Make the world a better place. Be generous with kind words and gratitude.

Comment: I love the stamp. I hadn't seen it in person yet, so it was a great treat. Did you know that the banana flavor that you get in your banana products is based on the old breed of bananas? The original banana crops were killed out (all of them) by an infection, luckily they were genetically engineering a new strain of banana. This is the second batch and they are currently working on a third in case something happens to this one. Just learned all this recently from a YouTube video.

Well, but, as long as you HAVE the Vandercook press..well, I mean, would you maybe TRY to make me some sort of trinket..I dunno, like maybe my own personalized...oh...moose head postcard? I especially enjoy ones featuring them enjoying a good Grape Tang, but I'm not picky. Thank you.

I have you as a partner for a swap and love how you call out bratty SB users! I also put a disclaimer on my profile due to snotty people I've 'gotten' to encounter on this site. The entitlement of some people is just disgusting!

In saying that, I Hope I find a card that you will like! :D

FiWebster on Jan 31, 2014:

Thanks so much for keepin' the Fountain Pen pal swaps going, Betsy, as well as the Typewriter swaps. I've done both of them, more than once, and I want to do more in the future, because I've met some great people through them! (P.S. Did you get my letter? =smile= No rush on the reply: I just wanted to make sure you got it.)

BlueberryLady on Dec 10, 2013:

Thanks for your third quarter reading swap. I was flaked on, so it was nice to receive an angel of my own :)

Elliepatterson on Aug 9, 2013:

Greetings Betsy, I read your comments under your "Sender's Choice" and agree totally with you. When I got my first taste of nastiness on SB it like to broke my heart. How can people who do not even know you be soooo rude!! Well that's life and it happens so I got over it and have swapped on. I enjoy meeting swappers from all over the world and finding things we all have in common. I send you weekend wishes for a bright day! blessings, ellie
