ADDRESS CHANGE!!

Please note that my address changed mid-April. If you've already sent something to the old address, I should still get it. But if you're putting something in the mail after April 17th 2019, please use the new address. Thanks!

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, but be warned it might take a while. I will definitely send you a message before rating if something hasn't arrived. If you haven't heard from me, don't waste any energy worrying about the swap.

Stuff I Like To Buy

  • fountain pens and ink
  • paper and notebooks
  • mechanical pencils
  • gel pens
  • stationery supplies (washi, staplers, glue, hole punches, etc)
  • typewriters (do I have too many or just the right number?)

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)
  • watch movies & streaming tv
  • play badminton, and I am trying 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.
  • Housework. Why am I so bad at it?
  • Stingy raters. Make the world a better place. Be generous with kind words and gratitude.

Comment: Thanks for the cardboard and the note. I got the Ham Radio bug from the grandfatherly neighbor, who still had an old-fashioned lightbulb in his porch fixture. He claimed it had been there for over 30 years.

Thanks for hosting this fun swap. Just mailed mine off to recipients. So fun handing chunks of cardboard over to postal clerk and seeing them smile when they look them over before adding postage. Yay!

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

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:
