Important Stuff...

I've not left Swap-bot, but am trying to get caught up with things at work and home. I will only be hosting and joining a few swaps until I get caught up on Jams and Deco books!

Postal Issues:

I have had mail reach it's destination despite having it weighed and checked at the mail counter. If this ever happens, please feel free to refuse or if you pay the difference, I ALWAYS reimburse!!

  • I don't rate swaps on extras, I rate them on the actual swap item. It is appreciated, but not necessary to send extras in order to receive a good rating from me! If I send extras in your package, it is because I like to do it and have it at the time to share.

  • In 12 years on swap-bot I have never sent a swap late! NOT that I feel I'm better than anyone else..because I know sometimes life does happen! If something were to ever come up..I would communicate with my partner & co-ordinator!

  • Please let me know if I do something wrong BEFORE rating me, and I will do my best to fix it! Thanks!*


Other Stuff...

So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it"~Willy Wonka

I am a free spirit with an old soul. I love nature, reading, quiet nights at home, and mysteries. I love baking, sewing, crocheting, paper crafting, jewelry crafting, sculpting (not many crafts I do not like).

Just a thought!


I collect Jokers and Queen of ❤s playing cards. Any of these would be GREATLY appreciated!

Profile Based Swaps Wishlist:

  • Love Retro 50's & 60's art, Retro colors, Retro Pin-Up girls.

  • LOVE Vintage Nursery Rhymes, Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, Fairy Tales

  • Vintage advertisements.

  • Love unusual/odd images..animal heads on portraits, zetti inspired, vintage freak show images, etc.

  • Hand drawn maps, Old maps, road maps

  • Vintage storybook illustrations, photos of children, circus, gypsy, postcards

  • LOVE Halloween-my favorite Holiday! Love Sugar skulls. Not so much the cutesy stuff..but not horrific either! Witches, bats, ghosts, etc.

  • Love to read & watch murder mysteries. Cozy mysteries, Agatha (Queen of mysteries!) I especially love British mysteries. Father Brown, Miss Marple

  • Love unsolved mysteries, or mysterious creature sightings. Cryptoids. I love the possibility that there are things still undiscovered!

  • Not much into Disney except for Villains & NIghtmare Before Christmas - especially: Maleficent; Ursula, Captain Hook, Cruella De Vil and Queen of Hearts!

I don't really have many dislikes.

  • Do not care for snakes.

  • I have Trypophobia - which is a phobia about patterns with small holes. I have had this my whole life, but did not know there was a name for it until I was in my 40's! My family just thought it was me being "weird"!. Due to this - please don't send any patterns similar to honeycomb. Thank you! HOWEVER-I would never rate someone down for this!!

Tea and coffee


My newest addiction thanks to @debtea is LEMON CAKE tea!! Oh my!! It tastes just like lemon cake and I cant find it here.

My tea likes are more minty, spicy, etc. LOVE chai! Not a huge fan of fruity flavors but will try anything once!


I am in a lot of groups for several reasons.

They are generally a bit safer than public swaps.

I also have a little bit of crafting ADD! There are so many crafts I love doing and I never know when the mood will hit me to do something different!

Hosting swaps...

One last thought...

I do angel my own swaps that I host, but sometimes it does take me a little while, so please be patient with me!
