I was so excited to learn about Swap-bot! I have been doing mail swaps since the late 70's. (Yes, I'm old, but please don't hold that against me!)
"It's All Good" I view a swap as more about who the other person is and what they are inspired to create rather than who I am and what I would like to receive. That being said, please know that I am not picky and take great delight the wierd, the unusual and the outlandish, if that's what's in your heart to create and send! But if you are a more conservative swapper, that's good too.
If a swap is profile-specific, I probably won't join it, but if I do, rest assured that I will keep your profile in mind.
I'm a native Texan and proud of it! I'm an elementary teacher by profession, but free a spirit by birth.
I'm very happily married tot he love of my life. I have 3 children, 5 step-children and grandmother/step-grandmother to 8. My "Grandma name" is Miss Connie and I like that just fine.

If the bus/train/boat/plane is going somewhere, I want to go to. It doesn't even matter where!
To get out of the house I enjoy letterboxing:
I enjoy tent camping and think I would like to spend an entire week in solitude with nature.
I'm not a serious collector by any means, but I like to hang on to:
Fortune cookie fortunes--Maybe they will in up in ATC's!
Old kitchen gadgets
Old pieces of broken dishes--especially if they have designs on them
Postcards--even those from the dentist or veternarian reminding me that it's time to make an appointment.
My dog Sis is 70 pounds of lap-loving Catahoula. Sis is intimidated by my calico cat Thursday, who enjoys her dominant postition.
In 2010 we got our dog a dog for Christmas, so now we have Buck, who is part lab and part bird dog.
In June 2011 we got a second cat, who we call Big Boy. He gives very serious love bites.
