About Me

I am the divorced mom of a wonderful son. I love to read mystery books, paint, craft cards, Art Decos and photography. Swapbot has been a ton of fun because who doesn't love snail mail! Such a treat to get something other than bills. I work as an Administrative Assistant for the Director of Tech, and it's one of the coolest jobs I've had. The people I work with are hilarious, dysfunctional and a second family. I live to laugh, and am thankful for the many blessings in my life. I also love ALL things Irish!! Stickers, stationary, torn pages from books..the sky is the limit :)

Favorite Books

Oh my Lord where do I start?! I'm all over the place with books. I find I can't help but buy Stephen King immediately upon release, read a lot of teen fiction at the advice of my kiddo...mystery. ..quirky like Christopher Moore...Max Lucado. Find myself gravitating to Bible studies, but have so many now I don't know where to start! My son is ADHD and has Aspergers so I read up on that as well. My library card and Goodwill serve me well. Piles of books are at my house.

Favorite Music

I tend to be all over the place with music. The only kind that I can't latch onto so far is country and rap. Artists ranging from Zeppelin to Dan Mangan to metallica. Just depends on where and what I'm doing.

Favorite Crafts

I love to paint, scrapbook, make cards, photography, and Art Decos. I'm always open to new things, and enjoy the creative process. It's wonderfully relaxing. I bought myself a journal as well to create pages of things you all send that really speak to me. I'm trying out ATC cards now, but am far from a pro, so be kind. LOL

Coffee over tea please

I received a great suggestion. I love coffee and super dark brew tea. I tend to not enjoy lighter teas, although I've discovered they are good cold, so I'm more open to those. Please no peppermint, just can't wrap my brain around the taste. I'm pretty worthless without my caffeine, so the stronger the better.

Painting and Hiding rocks

I am a member of a Facebook group called Battle Ground Rocks. We paint and hide rocks for others to find with messages, pictures. ..the works. The idea is to spread joy and smiles when you randomly find one. I'm always on the look out for painting pens, and gel pens. It's a blast, and if you are interested in starting one in your community let me know. :)

No Thanks You's

This is a short list of no thank you's, because I'm pretty open to most things and love experiencing what others enjoy.

  1. Please no pornography-type images

  2. Please no Teacher/Award stickers

  3. Please don't attack my faith. I am WIDE open to others sharing there's (and am quite accepting of everyone with faith or not), as long as we all roll with each other in a positive way.

  4. Please don't be rude, mean or judgmental of me, what I make or what I send. If I have made a mistake in a swap, please allow me to right it by messaging me in a considerate and respectful way and you can bet your bottom dollar I'll do my best to make it right. Life is to short to allow these negative things into my life, and I won't put it into yours. I promise you, I'm doing my best.

That's it - told ya it was short!

About Me

I rate. I promise. No exceptions to that. I think it's super important so folks know I received their goodies, and appreciate them. If you have swapped with me, and I don't rate for some unknown reason, call me on it PLEASE and I will get 'er done.

Also, if you EVER receive something from me that has postage due, message me. I'll just want to see a picture of the receipt that you had to pay and I'm ON IT. I know people make mistakes, and although 99.9% of the time I go to the post office to have things weighed, one could get through. I don't expect you, nor do I WANT you to pay for something I'm sending you.

I promise I WILL NOT FLAKE. EVER. PERIOD. If you do not receive something from me in a timely manner, please message me and I'm ON IT. If I need to pay for tracking on that puppy, I will do it. That way we both know you are getting what I promised you by signing up to swap.

Comment: I am really looking forward to get more Decos which are so well done as the ones you have sent me. I also would like to have art decos as I haven't got any of them and don't know what they are supposed to look like. Hannele
Response: Awww, thank you! I'm glad you are enjoying them. I'll try and get some thinner art decos out to you - they tend to be a bit bulkier, and unfortunately since postage rates went up, it can be crazy expensive. But we'll figure things out. Thank you again, my new Finland friend, for the kind words heart and rating

Response: Yayy!!! You are so welcome! I'm glad it arrived - we are getting ice here now, too, so I suspect the mail will start crawling while we all deal with this mess. Stay warm lady! Thank you for the rating :)
