About Me

** Updated 6/25/2019

Well I am back after a short break. Had some health issues and just had a lot going on but I missed doing swaps. Hope to get back in the swing of things again and meet some new friends and maybe run across some of my old swappers. Happy swapping!

*Updated 9/6/2017

Hello from Missouri USA!

I have lived in Southeast Missouri all my life. I am a Christian and am married to a wonderful man and we share our home with our big girl Maggie ( a Great Dane) She is spoiled rotten and such a good girl. I have two wonderful grand kids that are at our house as often as they are home. We do so much together and love hanging out and traveling.

I work full time as a mail carrier and love my job. I see people get mail and packages and sometimes wonder if it is from something like swapbot. So I thought I would join and hopefully make new friends from all over the world.

    Things I love. 

Paper crafting. All kinds including scrapbooking, cards, altered books, handmade folios and mini albums and more. I do a little painting and water colors. Making Christmas items.

Traveling. Would love to see Ireland and Scotland as well as Switzerland to name a few.

My Great Dane!

Flowers. My favorite is probably the iris.

Cooking. So feel free to share your recipes.

Spring, Fall and Winter. Summer not so much. Hate the heat and humidity and mosquitos 😕

Old movies and westerns. I love Cary Grant, Moreen Ohare, Doris Day and Jimmy Stewart and Clint Eastwood kind of movies when I want to relax. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is one of my favorites. Hallmark channel and DIY shows like "Fixer Upper" love Chip and Joanna! I do watch other stuff too though, like romantic comedies, suspense, sci-fi and such. Just don't care for the real scary ones.

Love old houses and vintage stuff. Antiques and Victorian era items. Our home is over 100 years old and I love all the woodwork and floors. It has a personality and craftsmanship you rarely see anymore. The attention to details is amazing.

Stamps!! I collect postage stamps from anywhere and everywhere. Vintage up to new.

Vintage postcards and greeting cards. Any, but Christmas, Halloween, Valentines and Easter are my FAVORITE!

I collect vintage porcelain and bone china dog figurines. I have quite a few. Any breed but am searching for Great Danes.

I also have an addiction for old dishes and silverware. Especially old bowls with floral designs and Pyrex mixing bowls and stoneware crocks and bowls.

I love to play Skyrim on the Xbox and Xbox One. I play both because I started on the Xbox and have so much time in my character and the One has awesome graphics.

    Crafts I enjoy. 

I love paper crafting. Making cards, PC's, mini albums, folios, holiday decorations to name a few.

Altered journals.

Painting in many forms from wood to canvas.

Found that I like making ATC's. So will be doing more.

Cross stitch. I don't do it as much as I used to but always loved it.

I am trying my hand at cutting out wood projects.

And I'm sure there is more I am forgetting. Lol

    Ideas for sending. 

Handmade cards and postcards.

Pretty stationery. With or without matching envelopes.

Postcards from all over.


Stamps for crafting. (Cling and rubber)

Anything Tim Holtz

Postage stamps. New, used and vintage.

Handwritten letters.

ViewMaster reel sets. Old ones but any will do.

Vintage cards and postcards.

Journal items.

Handmade soaps.

Old books or pages from old books. English, French and Italian are some of my favorites.

Snacks and sweets. Love trying new stuff especially from other countries.

    *    Swaps    *

I always send on time or before deadline. I rate as soon as I receive a swap so I would appreciate the same in return. Let me know if you are sending late. Put some pride in your swaps. Feel free to drop me a letter anytime.

@ChrisAnne Thank you for stepping up and sending journal for SHARED JOURNAL EXPERIENCE #4. ❤️❤️

Hi I'm your partner for the Profile Swap #10 I'm not sure what happened as I did this on the weekend but none of them saved! I'm so sorry! Here is the quote I picked for this swap!

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ― Brené Brown

“I am going to keep having fun every day I have left, because there is no other way of life. You just have to decide whether you are a Tigger or an Eeyore.” Randy Pausch

"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten." Paraphrase from G.K.Chesterton

Instead of trying to make your life perfect, give yourself the freedom to make it an adventure, and go ever upward. --Drew Houston

25YearOldGrandma on Feb 24, 2018:

“People," Geralt turned his head, "like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves. When they get blind-drunk, cheat, steal, beat their wives, starve an old woman, when they kill a trapped fox with an axe or riddle the last existing unicorn with arrows, they like to think that the Bane entering cottages at daybreak is more monstrous than they are. They feel better then. They find it easier to live.” ~ Andrzej Sapkowski ~
