Happy JUNE!!!!


My plans for June

  • Go to the library as much as possible

I am currently reading **Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

I been recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia, looking for pen pals via snail mail or email who suffer from this terrible thing.

IN August I will start the 12 Days of Christmas swaps, and The 8 Days of Hanukkah

This will be my 3 rd year hosting the 12 Days of Christmas swaps and my 1 st year hosting 8 Days of Hanukkah

I am taking the month of July off..i have not been feeling well.

I am finally caught up on messages I went through all 15 pages of messages


UPDATE 4-11-18

I am looking for home schooling moms to be pen pals and to share lessons, please message me :) I am still down sizing, its taking me forever. Some days I just get off track, I just have so much craft stuff I don't know what to do with it. I am joining a few type 3 swaps to help out with my downsizing.

NEEDS list Update 4-11-18

Handmade envelopes, or any kind of envies I am NOT picky any letter writing materials


If I have NOT rated you please message me, I been super busy, and I think I may have forgot to rate a few ppl

I am not a picky person, I will not rate or down rate you on the extras you send. I love any letters, or any poems written from the heart.

**I would love Pen Pals from anywhere in the universe or in the galaxy LOL **

If you love to meal plan, please shoot me a message and tell me how you do it, I am ignorant when it comes to meal planning. I usually just wing it everyday, BUT then hubby calls me every morning at 11 am "hey, hun, what's for dinner?" and I am struggling to make something up haha.

I am interested in any herb recipes you may have. If you send me a recipe in a swap it will gain you a heart (that includes any herb articles from magazines or printer off the internet).

I love notes, if you have notes from church, or any classes, or just from whatever, I would be happy to have them, I love to read notes haha. I recycle all paper, so no worries there.
