Important Stuff...

2-11. And...we have a 9 lb 5 oz, 22 in long baby boy! Born at exactly one hour and 23 years from MY baby's birthday!! I will try to get to post office and get mail opened and everyone rated asap!!

2-6-20. ...and still no baby! The Drs were sure she'd go before her due date which is Tuesday, 2/11 but he's hanging in there!

1-31-20 Still no baby. My daughter was in a wreck the first part of Jan and Drs thought this would put her into labor. Still no sign of him so he must be waiting for his original due date of her birthday in Feb!! Anxiously waiting!!

1-8-20 My baby girl is getting close to giving birth to her first baby (#7 grandchild for me!) If I go missing for a few days..I will be back on as soon as possible!

I am always willing to do private swaps for:

  • ATCs, APCs or Skinny cards
  • Memorydex cards
  • Journal cards
  • Altered Index cards or business cards

I also started a new group for Dotee inspired dolls! Click here to join Pin pals-Dotee inspired dolls




  • 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 11 years on swap-bot I have never sent a swap late! 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!*


I am in a lot of groups. Sadly I find it safer swapping that way. Although groups don't totally prevent flakers, it does seem to help a little!

Mailing Swaps:

MOST of the time I take my mail inside our little PO and have it weighed. However, if its something I know is fine with 1 stamp (postcards, occasionally ATC, etc) I will put it in the blue outside box. I do mark sent after putting it in the blue box. Just an FYI in case the marked sent date and cancellation date don't match up!


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).

I love to draw, sketch and paint. Not the greatest but I enjoy doing it.

Some of my sketches I scan into computer then manipulate it digitally. Sometimes I prefer this look over my original drawing...depends on my mood!!

Just a thought!


  • I am working on a project featuring ATC or Twinchie size Alice in Wonderland & one featuring Nursery Rhymes, in the same sizes. If in doubt what to send, either of these would be perfect!

  • I'm also working on acquiring an APC deck in Alice in Wonderland theme. Thanks!

  • I have recently begun collecting Jokers from 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

  • Vintage advertisements.

  • Hand drawn maps, Old maps, road maps

  • Alice in Wonderland & Wizard of Oz vintage images.

  • Vintage storybook illustrations, nursery rhymes, 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.

  • Enjoy doing ATCs, APCs, Skinny Cards, Moo cards, Twinchies, and Rolodex cards.

  • Love to read & watch murder mysteries. I especially love British mysteries.

  • Love cozy mysteries as well.

  • Love to crochet..I'm addicted to granny squares

  • Love unsolved mysteries, or mysterious creature sightings

  • Vintage movie monsters, Nosferatu

  • Not much into Disney except for villains & NIghtmare Before Christmas -especially: Maleficent; Ursula, Captain Hook & Cruella De Vil

  • Love Edgar Allen Poe, Wednesday Addams

  • Old postage stamps and stamps from other countries

  • Mythical creatures: gnomes, elves, fairies

  • My partner is obsessed with all things British!

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!!

Finally found my postcard collection from storage!

I do prefer postcards sent naked..but am really happy with anything! Just ask one thing-PLEASE date your postcard!!

Postcard interests:

  • Map cards
  • Greetings from:
  • Vintage

Hosting swaps...

Tea and coffee


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

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!


*if you are RUDE and DEMANDING I will NOT be angeling anything for you!
