July/August 2017 - Am going to be slow doing swaps for the meanwhile. Why? Because I am rearranging, organizing, sorting, cleaning, clearing out, etc. . .my apartment. And yes, trying to create a new and better crafting/pen palling area!
I am very easy to please! I just enjoy whatever I get and if I cannot use it, I will pass it onto someone who can, but generally I hold onto things as they are gifts to me!
NOTE: If by any chance, postage is due on any of my letters/packages to you, please let me know and I will pay! I just got a (cheap) kitchen scale which I am using to measure the envelopes. It is trial and error as I am trying to ensure the correct postage is paid. (usually, I put too much postage on)
Jan. 14, 2017 UPDATE: I have an income now and will start participating in swaps again. How I missed them!
I try to work very hard on sending fun swaps and realize not everyone will be happy (we can't please everyone). Yet, when someone forgets to give a heart, that makes me look like I am not a good swapper and it saddens me. I give it my best.
If any of my mail does not make it to you, please let me know! I would greatly appreciate it!
I am a middle aged woman with some physical limitations, yet still kicking it up! I love laughter and fun things as well as doing crafts, crochet, helping others, watching real shows (like the Alaska shows on Discovery, National Geographic and Animal Planet). My kids are grown. Even though I miss them, I try to fill my time with educational things (just got 2 degrees in the last 7 years), research, archiving (historical documents - one of my degrees).
Oh, I love love love MAPLE candy. It is so hard to find! The only one I can find has a nut in it which I cannot eat (but I HAVE sucked the candy off the nut, lol)
I love to crochet, paint, and do paper crafts. I love putting things together from kits (bird houses, jewelry boxes, etc.).
UPDATE: I am now into paper crafts and Flowish journals!
I love non-fiction!
Educational; Self help; Biography
The Little Couple
The Big Bang Theory
Please note: I like nuts but can NOT eat them, so nothing with them please.
I would like to see what an ATC, smash book and deco book look like.
(Check now on deco book and ATC!)
I am a fun loving person, so much so that I just got my degree in Parks and Recreation where we learn the art of playing! (There is so much more to the degree than that :) ). I love History! And I hope to find a historic site that I can work in their archives (I also have a degree in Archival Studies). I am fascinated with old documents, pictures, articles, etc.
I love to study self sufficiency, especially when on a budget.
I LOVE crafting of many sorts! And I LOVE handmade items such as furniture from branches, handwoven cloth, dishes, etc....anything that you can find in the Foxfire books! Stories, songs, old games played, old holiday traditions.
Favorite Music Bluegrass! Coming from the ONLY university in the world that now has a degree in bluegrass! I loved sitting on campus doing my school work and listening to the many students who practiced their music!
Praise and Worship
No Weapons formed against me shall prosper; for every tongue which rises against me I shall condemn. For this is the heritage of the servants of the lord and their righteousness is of me, sayeth the Lord.
Although I love Jesus with all my heart, I do not celebrate Christmas or Easter as a religious holiday. I prefer to honor Him in a different way. No, I am not a JW.
Now, I do enjoy the other aspects of Christmas, so snowmen, or cute mice or Thomas Kinkaid scenes or things like that I am ok with!
Sending kudos to those who have gone the extra mile!
To kiddo47 - Thank you so much for the awesome angelled swap for the Wild and Wacky holidays - May when my partner flaked on me!
(adding also when I find your names - maple candy and maple cookies!
