About Me

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.

POSTCARDS/NOTECARDS

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.

.

CRAFTS

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.

ABC's

I've been finding it easier to pick out ideas for profile swaps when other's have it listed in alphabetical form. So here goes:

A: Angels, astronomy, astrology, ATC's, address labels, Aunty Acid. Articles, puzzles, etc cut from newspaper or magazines. Animals.

B: Butterflies, birds, bookmarks, blue, beach glass, bohemian style, biographies, Betty White. Baby animals.

I: Ink, ink pads, coloured ink pens. Ink drawings.

J: Jame's Patterson, Journals of all kinds, would love receive a small junk journal. Jewelry (handmade is nice)

K: Kittens.

L: Letter sets, lions, leopards, love, life stories, letters. Lanyards. ( I use these to hold keys at work)

M: Myth's and mythology, mail, mittens, monograms (C or O or K or P OR L) micron pens,make up bags, make up brushes.Music, Maxime's humour, memoirs

XYZ: Yarn leftovers, Zentangling. Zeke 😺.

*Bits of trivia, articles of interest, inspirational quotes, stories, etc. Funny everyday life quotes or stories. Short stories printed or cut from magazines, romance, mystery, funny, Chicken Soup, etc.

TEA AND EDIBLES

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

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!!

Comment: What a very wonderful letter the postwoman brought today! First i took time to read all the great quotes on the envelope. I felt excited to open it - you put much effort into creating this swap and i feel really moved. I am looking forward to diving into your selection of autumn poetry; a good cup of oolong tea by my side. Today it's windy and yes, summer's almost gone. A huge thank you, Connie.
Response: You're welcome. Thank you for the rating and the heart.

I read your profile and I love how Zeke 'helps you' too. With my cat Ava, she will nudge my hand to remind me that she is there and deserves attention :P I imagine I have sent things with a few stray strands of fur too! Yay for fur-babies.
