About Me

*I'm still away from computer mostly due to severe illness and son coming home from Iraq :) I'm done with all my swaps for now and am taking a rest from swapping. I can't get into my profile so hope all is well. I know I sent a few swaps late but did notify the receivers. I'm cheking my e-mail once a week - [email protected] Thanks.

I'm a 49-yr-old Country Gal born and raised in NC and have lived in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in WA for 30 years. I'm Mom to 6-his, mine & ours-which patters the house with 11 little grandbrats and #12 coming soon. Our baby boy (26) just returned from Iraq on his 2nd tour of duty. He left a newborn son and came home to a walking but toothless toddler. My husband and I have been married 29 years (2/14 anniversary) and live in a town of 3000, in the forest, by the river with eagles soaring, at the base of a glacier and in 45 minutes can drive down out of the mountains to the bay and go cruising on our 28' boat. The best of both worlds (and 1.5 hrs to Seattle). I had to quit working 5 years ago due to health problems as a result of post tramatic stress disorder (not military). As a result I found postcard trading on the net! I don't know how I'll feel one day to the next, but the mail and messages from folks and learning of other places sure brightens my world :)

POSTCARDS

I like New, Modern 4x6 USA postcards (pigs, angels, mice, recipe any size) And International any size is okay. (dislikes below) I prefer cards to be sent unwritten on, in envelope, if possible.
My Favorite POSTCARDS are Autumn, historic, map, cap, flag, LL, stamp pic on pc, scenic, People famous or not, B&W, military, Place of Worship, courthouse, govenor mansion, Angels, feet, hat, gravesite/cemetary, wildlife, turtles, birds, penguin, pig, mice, wildflowers, road signs, license plate, quilt, reflection, snow/fog/ice, mailboxes, rustic/rural, odd trees, desert, rocks, barn, crop, clock, mining/minerals, rocks, cave, ship, song, fence, Autumn, odd and unusal, Native American, Africa, Yukon, simplistic-a door, a window & such. Most any cards really, but DO NOT like cityview, artcards, advertisement, multiviews and cutsey sayings for examople: missing you, last payment and it's mine, hot hunks, etc.

FOR OTHER SWAPS

Fave colors are burgandy, blue (of all shades), red, pink and most other colors BUT NOT green, purple, orange or gray.

I like Country music and mellow music like Enya, Carlos Nakai, Estaban, Earl Klugh. Also Celtic (just music-no vocal) and upbeat Christian music.

LOVE n LIKES

  • Watchs-all shapes and sizes as long as it works. No band necessary
  • Flowery smells-inscence & oil
  • Tablets of all sizes, cute stickees, stickers, address labels and a GOOD fine point pen.
  • Jewelry-Earrings, earrings, earrings and bracelets (6 1/2" wrist) and necklaces are okay too. (No $ store jewelry please. I love the $ store but not for jewelry-cheap made and look like we are trying to play dress-up) I LIke gold and silver and the colors burgandy, blue (all shades), pink, red and most colors but NOT green gray, orange and purple. I DO like stones-gems-minerals, such as, ruby, garnet, mother-of-pearl and the like, as well as, beads (no plastic), and like pearls n diamonds. Used jewelry is no problem as long as in good shape
  • Address labels
  • Embriodery Floss
  • Cross-stitch patterns
  • Windchimes-any theme but country/rustic is fave (no $ store please)
  • Wreaths of any size
  • Charming Tails (mice)
  • Angels-any nationality and size
  • Maps from anywhere! Travel maps too.
  • Squished pennies
  • Dream Catchers
  • Dark Chocolate!

HOBBYS

My Favorite Hobby is Trading * My FAVE is postcards (have 10,000) * Souvenir Spoons, Thimbles and Magnets with state or country name on them. I also collect decorative Thimbles as well. My latest was a moose head carved from a moose horn piece. Neat! * I also collect Squished Pennies (You know the ones where you put .50 in and then a penny and it squishes the souvenir image onto the penny) * I'm getting into the misc. swaps with puffy envies of goodies and you don't know what you're gonna get sometimes. Fun :)
* Note: I don't collect key chains, shot glasses and other souvenirs but have them to trade out. I'll trade for a souvenir magnet, thimble or spoon or postcards *Other interests include making earrings (still a novice-haven't gotten the findings for necklaces & bracelets figured out yet), reading novels & biographies, cross-stitch & gardening.

Am looking for cute PENCILS and pencils with any geographic area name on them for my SISTER who has CANCER and is a pencil collector

sin on Oct 9, 2009:

HI I'm so sorry your magnet is late :-( I was 100% sure that I sent all my swaps out at the same time but today when I was searching for the pen in my bag - OOOOPS I found small envelope :( You know it's easy to lost your things in big bags.. But I sent your magnet today by airmail so it should reach you in 5-7 days. Sorry again :-(
