About Me

Update 9-2-15: I have two 1's because On 9-12-13 I had a heart attack, swapbot was not possible for me at the time. I am just now feeling up to returning. I've checked into sending to bring the 1's up but with 1, the person is suspended and with the other the person hasn't been online in a year. I will try to find two swaps to angel to make up for the swaps and post them here. If you know of anyone needing an Angel, let me know.

Hey y'all, my name is Donna and I like cowboy boots, horses, good food, strong coffee, banjo music and books. I am a Mama of 3, Grand Mama of 4 and grateful receiver of more good gifts than one heart can hold. I fight for joy and find it in the most unexpected places. I make quirky look normal, relish in my small town Southern way of living, and am learning that it's all grace--every last bit of it.

I'm 53 years young and recently disabled due to a genetic heart condition called Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy. I have 3rd degree heart block due to surgery to try to correct my problem (septal myectomy), and now I'm dependant on a pacemaker (my heart don't beat without it) and a ICD.

I have two dashounds Darlin' and Dolly and two maltese Benny and Bella that keep me very busy.

I make quiet books and would love anything that could be used in them.

I started swap bot in 2008, swapped a few years and after my surgery I stayed off for two years.

I always try to send my swaps on time, if something comes up and I can't send on time I will contact you and let you know.

There's not much I don't like

no dead bugs

no witch stuff

I'm not a huge user of scrapbook items, I actually draw in my journals

I have no use for buttons

Don't need beads

Don't need stickers except to seal envies.

Favorite Music

I like most music, country, rock, piano, love Christmas Carols, Gospel.

Favorite Books

I will read just about anything I can get my hands on! The Bible. Love books set in the South, Anne Rivers Siddons, detective novels, etc

Favorite Movies

I rarely watch movies. Most of my favorites would be old classics such as Madam X and Imitation of Life. The Bible would be my favorite.

Favorite Television

Big Brother, Gunsmoke, Golden Girls, Big Brother!

Favorite Crafts

Busy (Quiet) Books.

For My Sweetheart

If you wish to send something for my sweetheart he loves sweets of any kinds, books on cd, he likes listening to them in the car also. He and his family are huge card givers so I think any unused card or notecard would be appreciated.

For My Sweet Furbabies

They love to tear up toys, the little dollar store ones are great because they will only last a day or two. The less stuffing the better! They love the squeekers! Tiny treats are great, they are small so it has to be small!

Comment: I never got anything and when I sent a message it was never responded to. I'm kind of disappointed that I was flaked on by the coordinator of the swap! I will change rating once I receive items.......

pkmccann on Jun 11, 2013:

D~ Thank YOU for the sweet profile comment!! I really did enjoy doing the "One Awesome Swap" for you! I'm very proud of my local community -it's a wonderful little town, full of art, music, and a culture all its own! Close enough to "the big city" (Dallas/Ft.Worth) to do ANYTHING you can think of, but far enough away to still have a close-knit, small-town feel. If you're ever in North Texas, you should REALLY stop in to Denton for a visit! (I swear, I do not get kick-backs from the chamber of commerce) LOL!! Thanks again!

Thank you for the May wishes from the $1 addicts group!
