This and That

I am having some major health issues at the moment and will not be able to host swaps until after the holidays. I would appreciate your prayers.

I love Christmas postcards!

Christmas/Stocking Stuffer Wish List - new, store bought postcards, cookie cutters, Avon Imari powder or body spray, nice canvas shopping bags, supplies for making ATC's, plain M & M's, dark chocolate (No Nuts) , small Amazon or Etsy gift, used foreign postage stamps (off paper). dog or cat lined note pad (memo pad) ORGANIC SOAPS from any Etsy shop!

I collect business cards and am willing to trade up to ten at a time - worldwide!!! These are my favorites:

  • animal related - kennels, zoos, vets, breeders, kennel clubs, farms, groomers, pet shops, etc

  • food related - restaurants, bakeries, donut shops, private chefs farmers markets, etc.

  • music - instrument sales, repairs, musicians, orchestras, bands etc

  • Etsy shops, hand made crafts, flea markets, auction houses, antiques, etc.

  • please check my dislikes!

I am 59 and single.

I collect postcards (more about that, later). I run a group called Animal and Nature Postcards. If you collect postcards in those categories and have good ratings you are welcome to join!

I am also hosting an Alphabet Postcard swap series through Whats In Your Mailbox. That is a great group and they have tons of great swaps. Please join us - the alphabet postcard swaps are for 1 letter a week!

I have a wonderful kitty. Her name is Precious, and she really is just that! Precious! She is a very active cat, and she is also really snuggly. I love her to pieces!

Years ago I bred and showed Shih Tzus, so I adore anything Shih Tzu or with a Shih Tzu on it!

I am disabled and suffer from chronic moderate to severe pain. It has begun to impact my life more and more lately. I have Fibromyalgia, diabetes with complications, and degenerative joint disease, to name a few problems. I am legally blind in my right eye. During the bad weather I am pretty much housebound.

I have good days, bad days, and awful days. But I do my best to live every day the best I can, with the Lord's help. I don't know where I would be without Jesus.

RATINGS: I always send my swaps out before the send by date. I always rate my swaps. If you are going to be late in sending for any reason, please PM me - that is really important. It can make the difference between a 3 and a 5... things do happen in life that are beyond our control.

If you do not receive a swap from me PLEASE PM me before rating me. I send all type 3 swaps with a delivery confirmation. Thanks!

Favorite Crafts

RUBBER STAMPING - I started rubber stamping when I was a young teen - buying my first stamps from The Boston Stamp Company. That was WAAAAAY before stamping became the art that it is today! I made simple cards and decorated my pen pal stationery with them.

Over the years I have hosted hundreds of swaps! It was so much fun, and very time consuming to run 4-6 swaps a month!

I started teaching classes, ran a stamping group for children, and became a demonstrator for Sweet Celebrations, which is no longer in business. I really loved their stamps!

FAVORITE COLORS: earth tones, browns, blues, greens,tan, paper with inclusions

FAVORITE RUBBER STAMPS: realistic, mostly. I love flowers, dogs, cats, horses, and nice sayings.I prefer unmounted stamps from Angel Companies

I enjoy making ATCs and am always looking for small things to use in making them.

I enjoy working with used postage stamps. Also use them for ATCs and rubber stamped cards!

Likes and Dislikes

I do not need any kind of printed/scrapbooking or fancy papers. I have 2 4 drawer cabinets full..........
