I'm still here.

As of 12-17-13 every swap that could have in anyway been affected by my postal issue has been resent. All swaps to date have also been sent. I do still owe an "Angel" I promised someone.

I may be down, but I am not out.

Nov: I am working on trying to correct any issues my postal problems may have caused.

Postal Issues - Please Read

11-25: The postmaster visited me at my home & explained what was happening. He believes everything has been resolved & I should not have anymore of these issues. Fingers crossed he is right.

11-13-13: I just realized today I hate my post office. I have been looking for a package that was sent to me by another SB member & went missing. I have asked my carrier many days if I had any packages & was told no. I called the post office several times & was told the same thing. Well today I went to the post office & asked if I had any packages ... I was told no again. Then another woman cut off what the woman at the counter was saying & told her don't you remember the box in my office. It seems the postmaster had a box of packages that were mine in her office ... I would say there are over 20 packages in it. I will be opening them & leaving feedback in a lil while, after I give my children dinner. gggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrr

In total there were 34 incoming packages & a few packages returned for insufficient postage (they need to check themselves as they put the postage on them). I will be resending the returned packages on 11-15 as that is when I will be out & about again.

Ah the joys of living in the boonies beyond the sticks.

About Me

Me & Swap Info

If you are trying to reach me try messaging me here before email. I only check my email once or twice a week, if I remember.

Hi ! I am a single Mom of 4, living in upstate NY. I have two daughters & two sons. My younger daughter is the person who told me about this web site, she has been a member for awhile. My youngest son has A-typical autism (hand flapping, diapers ... etc.) but is very intelligent.

I raise critters, lots of lil critters ... lol. We have chicken, ducks, quail, doves, rabbits. That's besides the pet dogs, cats, & birds.

I guess I should apologize in advance for my handwriting, it is kinda sloppy. I have had 2 strokes & 3 mini strokes (TIAs) in the last 3 years. They have affected my right side & I write with my right hand.

I have become addicted to this site since joining & have been doing a bunch of swaps. I am going to have to try an behave & cut back a lil till the beginning of January. My social security check just doesn't stretch enough to do Christmas & tons of swaps. : (

I will never flake on a swap ... ever. If for some reason you don't receive your mail from me in a timely manor please message me. I usually send my swaps out within a couple of days of finding out where to send it. In almost every swap I include an extra of some sort, even if it is as small as a few stickers. I haven't figured out how to do it with naked postcards as of yet, but I have an idea : )

I should also mention I live in the boonies beyond the sticks. All mail that I send goes from here to a transfer depot in the city before it goes on it's way. So it may take a day of two longer to make it to you.

If for some reason my package to you does not arrive in a reasonable amount of time let me know & I will resend.

I always leave feedback the day I get your mail, please do the same !

Crafts & Collections

I enjoy assorted crafts, I guess you could say I dabble in several. I crochet, I work with felt, I make Christmas decorations & ornaments, I hand spin (to make wool), I dry items to make decorations & potpourri. Make candles & soaps.

I hope to learn to do embroidery & weaving over this winter. I have always wanted to learn how to knit, but so far I have had no luck with it.

Since joining this site I have gotten the urge to try journal making & a few other paper crafts. I am enjoying them, but have a lot to learn. I also have become interested in collecting postcards & stamp collecting.


~ I would like to collect some from every country. I know this will take time as I have only just started.

~ I would also like to get one from every state in the USA.

~ Not to mention just collecting the ones I like : )~ lol


~ Since receiving all the swap-bot mail since I joined I have noticed how pretty some of the stamps are. So I decided to start saving them. I haven't gotten in to preserving them as of yet, but you never know.

Favorite Books & Music

I am an audiobook junkie !!!!!!!

I usually listen to a book a night, when I can.

I enjoy romance novels especially regency era, vampire, cowboy & shape-shifter.

Yeah I know, escapism ... lol.

I list the books I listen to here http://www.shelfari.com/justmee when I don't forget to.

I listen to a lil bit of everything. Currently on my mp3 player is Garth Brooks, Kid Rock, Glee, Pogue Mahone, Michael Buble, plus a few more.

I LOVE Christmas music, especially the classics (Burl Ives, Bing, etc...).

Oh I am a Gleek, I enjoy the music from the TV show Glee, at last the first few years.

Favorite TV & Movies

I don't watch very much TV, I'm usually too busy with my books : )

When I do watch it is something I saved on the dvr like Glee, Big Brother or Extream Couponing

Except at Christmas time when I try to watch all the holiday shows & TV movies !

hmmm ... this is a hard one. I rarely go to the movies, maybe once a year if i'm lucky.

In general I like romance or romantic comedies.

I don't think I can pick one but the following are in my top 5 favs.

Pride & Prejudice = Keira Knightley & Matthew MacFadyen

Seven Brides For Seven Brothers

Scarlet (Gone With the Wind 2, TV movie)

Likes & Dislikes

I like most things & am easy to please, I just like getting mail that is not a bill.

Likes (not in any special order) ~ Also see Santa list below.

Post Cards or pictures from around the world (especially places I may have heard of in the books I have read ~ ex: places in London that have been around since Regency times).

Nature / Animals ~ on just about anything, especially horses & pandas. pine cones & pictures of everything else.

pens ~ fine point especially with Purple ink : ) maroon & black ink are good too, fountain pens & gel pens.


stickers ~ animals, flowers, cute sayings ... etc.

Things used in paper crafts (book making, paper folding, card making, ... etc.) I am new at this & could use almost anything.

rubber stamps & ink pads ~ I only have black so far

note pads, cards & post it notes ~ with animals, flowers, or nature on them (do they make them with sexy men on them ?)

Harry Potter ~ items & candy for my children

World of Warcraft (game) ~ anything, my children are addicted

Tea ~ oriental blends are my favorite

fragrance ~ Love's Baby Soft (any of their scents), Jasmine

things with sexy men on them (shirtless ~ cowboys, firefighters, etc...)

money from around the world

magnets (farm/country style) or from your country

Twizzlers ~ red, pull-n-peel are the best

Swedish Fish (candy) ~ especially the red

Pfeffernüsse cookies ~ I LOVE THESE, but can never find them in my area.

Anything Christmas !!! My decorating style is a mix of traditional red, green & gold with a good dose of woodsy home style thrown in (pine cones, moose, etc...)

Handmade items of all types are very much enjoyed !

colors I like ~ purples (from dark to light), periwinkle, natural (like oatmeal), dusty blue, dusty rose.


Coffee ~ I have never tried it & have no plans to.

Santa List

I was asked to write this list by another swap-bot member, but when I checked their profile there was nothing there. I don't know why but here is my list, I was told to also list my children so here it is.

Myself :

Comment: You marked this swap sent on 7 November 2013. I messaged you on 30 November and you said you would investigate. Since then I have heard nothing from you. I will of course re-rate if I receive something – its just I haven’t had communication from you for a while now. UPDATE 30.01.14 - This finally arrived but it was of course very late. You said you sent the re-send on 30 December. However it is post marked some 3 weeks later. The Cheetos were also out of date. Thank you for resending though.
Response: Your welcome.

I got your PC in the "Adventures of the Travelling Postcard R26! Will be passing it on in the next round. :)

wordsareworlds on May 2, 2014:

I just wanted to let you know i'm out of here. I know you and your girls said this was a fun site with nice people, but I have not seen that. All Dev & I have gotten are frozen accounts for no reasons.


coolbaker5 on Feb 18, 2014:

I am so sorry but I need to remove you from the Homemade Card Group. Once you have fixed your rating, feel free to join again. Thank you and good luck. :)

AnnieMaxine on Feb 15, 2014:

Thank you for returning the Adventures of the Traveling Postcard postcard that you had in you possession. Best of luck in improving your situation here on Swap-Bot.

Just4Mee on Jan 31, 2014:

@reauk I have no idea why some mail gets to it's destination & some does not. I only know I mail it & I save the Customs Declaration form plus the receipt as proof.

I have not flaked on any swap I have joined. I also have recent to everyone that has claimed not to have received a swap from me. Some of these people I have had tracking from the post office that said they had already received.

I will be sending out a third mailing to you today.

nsgrammy2012 on Jan 3, 2014:

Please everyone when you do get your swap please re-rate.

nsgrammy2012 on Jan 3, 2014:

I am so glad to hear that your being able to resolve the postal issues you have had. Will definitely re-rate.

Hope 2014 is a much better year!

nsgrammy2012 on Dec 18, 2013:

I have to remove you from All Things Christmas due to your status. I hope you can rectify your swaps and rejoin.

sweetpea22 on Dec 18, 2013:

I never received the stickers from you for the grabbie taggie in the public forum.

Peachapatchi on Dec 9, 2013:

Thanks so much for being my angel for Christmas card and little saprise swap 2# ! You didn't have to and it was just an act of kindness, I greatly appreciate it.
