About Me

ABOUT THAT "1" RATING. I was in a swap with dreamlady66 and my first card got lost, or so I believe. I resend a new card on 8/31.Dropped it off at my postoffice. I asked the clerk how long mail from the US to Germany would take and he said "2-3 weeks in normal times, but it's been slower"

Instead of giving it more time to arrive she rated me a "1" on 9/17.

I have over 600 "5" ratings and have NEVER flaked on a swap.

If you are a swap host and came to my profile to see why I have a below 5 rating and a "1" please reconsider having me in your swap if you don't allow a "1" rating. With COVID keeping me in the house and my surgery on 9/30 for breast cancer swapbot has been keeping me sane. Thank you.

** *I recently was diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer. I'm not sure how this is going to go. I am going to do my earnest to stay on top of swaps. If something is late or didn't arrive I need to know before you rate me down.***

Favorite Music

Right now anything Latin I love. I'm dancing in a dance class called Dance Party, a mix of Zumba, Latin Dance, hip-hop and Bollywood.

Favorite Television

Do it yourself shows, cooking shows. Documentaries that teach me something. Cuurentl enjoy watching The Reign, Call the Midwife and The Crown.

Favorite Books

I enjoy mysteries, true crime stories, biographies, travel stories and I read cook books as a hobby.

Things I really love

I love colors but don't like red or really pink things. I'm a big fan of Art Deco, Gargoyles, Buddha pictures, elephants, colors and patterns of all sorts. I love tulips and pretty flowers. I'm getting into washi tape. My favorite painters are almost all the Dutch Masters, I like Monet and Georgia O'Keefe as well.

Don't like.

I would REALLY prefer no cursive handwriting, I wasn't raised learning how to read it and I have hard time reading it. If it is however how you write then please write a litte bigger with spacing!

I don't like strong scents either in perfume or candles. Real lavender is always good. Due to dietary restrictions no food please. Not a fan of cartoon items, **please no stickers,no Hello Kitty things I don't care for beach/overly flowery or very pink stationary.**

Cities and places I love.

Favorite cities, Amsterdam-Lyon-Paris-Avignon-Mont Saint Michel-San Francisco- Seattle-Chicago.

About Me

Jack of all trades, very creative and active every day. I don't work but I volunteer at an educational farm and as a reading tutor. I love dancing, just got certified as a Zumba instructor.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, weaving and spinning my own wool. Coloring books is another thing I love, I have too many and not enough time to sit down and color.

Comment: Update by 21.09.20: Ty for the resend - my card is finally there, thank god!
Response: You could have not rated. Mail does get lost. I sent this card on August 3rd. Resend today on August 31st. Added: 9/17. Card was sent, not by airmail which could take longer. I wish you were more patient, it's been only 17 days since my resend.

Comment: I think I may have heard of Ted's Montana Grill although I'm not sure where... maybe here on swap-bot? I've never had a bison burger but if someone ordered one I'd take a bite!
Response: Maybe we were in a simular swap together? I almost always send out Ted's cards!

Please recheck your emails. The swap that I canceled was the 2nd one in the series, not the one that I assigned partners for.

I found the swap that you were talking about not receiving a postcard and it is in the mail. I'm sorry that you didn't receive the first one, but I appreciate you letting me know!
