IMPORTANT NOTE TO SWAP HOSTS: I am a returning swapper from over ten years ago who left in excellent standing with over 1000 hearts, a 5.0 rating, and never ever flaked. I do not remember my email from that time and the system shows that I have a duplicate account when the host checks. (It could be unavailable as that server was taken down.) But I did use the same name, Karen Fife.
I have been waiting for Admin to merge my accounts (it’s taking a long time - nearly five months now after many messages). I mentioned in my latest message to Rachel that some hosts are okay with allowing me in their swaps, mostly postcards, but there are many other swaps I would like to join. I love Swap-Bot but can’t really fully participate. This is so sad, and I don’t like to not follow rules. I would really appreciate any suggestions about what I can do at this point, especially from longtime swappers who are concerned with the transparent operation of Swab-Bot.
****Is it possible that I can “start over” and join swaps based on my current Ratings Overview.****
If you check my current swaps and ratings you will get an idea of the kind of swapper I am. Just wanted you to know before I sign up for your Swaps. I realize it is the host’s decision whether or not to let me in a swap, and I am fine with that.
THINGS ABOUT ME:
Hello! I live in Michigan and love it, even the winters.
MUSIC: Classical, New Age, and Easy Listening, but I listen to all types.
BOOKS: I read about 85 books a year, mostly series mysteries such as Anne Perry’s Victorian mysteries, Peter Robinson, J. D. Robb, and many British detective series.
MOVIES: Happy endings like Gifted, McFarland USA, Rudy, Letters to Juliette, and dark suspenseful thrillers like Suburbia, Sanctum, and Perfect Getaway.
TELEVISION: I rarely watch TV, but occasionally watch a series such as Downton Abbey or The Crown.
CRAFTS: Quilting (starting on a project making blankets and quilts for homeless vets and pregnancy resource centers), crocheting dishcloths, making my own body and home care products with essential oils....painting with acrylics (abstracts or just playing with color)...making greeting cards. I also dabble in photography and am finally taking a class.
I am a retired preschool teacher (two-year-olds) and still sub on occasion. I am married to a retired professor and we love going on road trips. This past summer we took Route 66 to California. The previous summer we toured Yosemite NP and all the major National parks out west. This is a good way to collect postcards!
I will be adding more to my profile but I just rejoined and want to get started swapping postcards.
I’m very appreciative of all I receive as long as it is what the swap required.
POSTCARD LIKES: Where you live.....Anything strange or unusual...Out-of-the ordinary places, especially small town or village where you live...Vintage, or reproduction vintage...city skylines.
I would prefer one of your choice, but please don’t send one with worn edges and bent corners.
No handmade unless swap is specifically for homemade PCs.
Real photo please instead of drawings or cartoons,
I would like my postcards NAKED unless the swap requires an envelope.
DISLIKES: None, as long as it is in good taste.
GENERAL THEMES I LOVE: squirrels...sloths...goats...chickens...gnomes... flowers... birds...benches...chairs...windows...doors
TEAS: Any kind or brand but adore English Breakfast.
LITTLE THINGS: Seasonal or holiday themes (any time of year). Seasonal stickers, unused postcards, notecards
I will never flake and will rate as soon as I receive your mail. If a problem arises with a swap I will do my best to resolve it.
My mail is often picked up as late as 7:30 pm, so the postmark on my mail date may show the following day.
