Profile updated October 2020
I have been away from Swap bot for about a year. There have been so many changes in my life in the past year.
I've said yes to my wonderful partner. It'll be a small wedding with just our children and their children. Like many other's the current events has put the date on hold for now.
And second... I'm going to be a grandma around the end of November!
With the changes in life, come changes in the swaps I will participate in. I've missed the mailbox full of happy mail.
I love Pinterest and sometimes spend way too much time there. Sometimes I actually try a recipe or craft idea from there.
I still work full time. My job is very stressful, as I get older I realize I need a little more down time.
To relax I play scrabble against the computer and work on a few puzzle books.
I love to read. Sometimes the actual book, but most times I have an audio book playing while working on a project or two.
Please don't send my any paper pieces and ephemera. I have a ton that I need to get rid of already.
I am really easy to please. If you are having a problem coming up with an idea for a swap or wondering if I'd like a certain item, you can either use your best judgement or send me a quick message. Have fun and don't stress.
Please let me know if you are still waiting for a rate or a swap from me.
*Please use SwapBot message rather than email to contact me. I don't check emails often.
Pos cards...I love them all, store bought, zazzle, homemade.
Ideas to write on the back of the written/sent naked cards...poems, quotes, about your day, why you chose this card for me, etc.
Note cards and stationery.
A few of my favourites swaps are ones with notecards and writing on all types of writing paper. Along with this...I never have enough pens.
I find most of my postcards, note cards and letter paper when out thrift store shopping.
My crafting has changed once again. Currently I have been doing a lot of diamond painting and teaching myself to crochet. Maybe one day my blankets will have straight, even sides.
I have lost interest in paper crafting. This includes ATC, handmade post cards and colouring pages. I have so many cute papers and ephemera I need to pass on. I'm down sizing and don't want to throw the "good stuff" out.

Please don't send any tea or other edibles. I have had some bad experiences with them.
If the swap calls for tea and such, I am open to substituting with a recipe.
Zeke is no longer with us. We had to put him down in the spring of 2020. I miss him terribly and sometimes sense he is still around.
I am unable to adopt another cat at this time, but would still like to join some cat related swaps. If the swap requirement is to send a 'gift' for the cat, I am open to substituting for something little, maybe a picture or story of your cat. :)
Zeke is my furry black and white sidekick. He is an older cat with high anxiety.
He follows me around like a little puppy dog and insists on helping with swaps and packaging.
I apologize in advance if Zeke includes a cat hair or two in the swap, though I do my best to keep it out.
Looking forward to meet you. Happy swapping!!
