About Me

Hello all,

8/9/22 I had some mail put out in my mailbox, including a couple of swaps, ready to be mailed out for today. However, I noticed that our mailperson did not show up to deliver our mail until 6 pm! Meaning that my mail missed the last mail pick up! One of my swaps was to be mailed out on the 9th, today, but will have the 10th as the cancelled date. This is very frustrating for me and totally out of my hands. If I had known that this was going to happen, I would have taken the mail to the post office instead of relying on my postperson coming on time. I apologize to my partners.

02/10/2021 Started the keto diet late January 2021. This is the second time I've been on this diet. If you have any tried and true recipes you would like to share for this diet, feel free to share them with me! Also, I have a few I would love to share with you....


Back from a summer break. Hosting a few swaps. Come and join in the fun!


October 2019: Only one piece of mail has gone missing, so that is an improvement. Still no word from the Postmaster even though I have left him a message to contact me. Still waiting.....

17 Aug 2019: Still no word from the PO about missing mail. It is still happening. Frustrating.... Not sure if they will contact me IF and when they discover the reason why mail is going missing. Sure would be nice though.

8/2/19 : I have been having an issue with my outgoing mail going missing. I have resent several swaps and those have not arrived to their destinations either. Not sure what is happening, as I have verified with the recipients their addresses, and the addresses were correct. I have contacted the PO, and they are going to look into the issue, but who knows what that will bring. Please contact me if you have not received a swap from me, if I haven't already contacted you. I am more than happy to resend a swap due to this happening. Thank you for your understanding....


I'm in my 50's. I love receiving snail mail. Some of my favorites are ATC's, PC's, cards and zentangle!

I have started collecting the Franken Deck of playing cards here on SB, which is really been quite fun! It is interesting to see what kinds of cards I get...

I live in Minnesota and I dislike winter (the cold, snow and sleet) so swapping helps me fill the void of the short winter days and long nights. Summers are too short, and full of bugs. lol The humidity gets to me and thankfully not too many days have high humidity.

I am a baby witch. Just learning all about witchcraft. Very interesting and not at all what main stream society thinks it is all about. I finally feel like I fit in somewhere.

When I was a kid, my sister and I would go roller skating on Friday nights while our parents would go grocery shopping, but I wouldn't go unless I could "see" myself doing it. Now I know it was a form of witchcraft. I still do that on occasion.

I don't have any food allergies that I am aware of, which is great! I like chocolate and have discovered I have a sensitivity to it. This is not an allergy. I also like to have my daily cup of coffee and a relaxing cup of herbal tea is always nice. Iced tea is wonderful, too.

Favorite Movie: Hamilton. Excellent movie!

I love to listen to podcasts. Mostly true crime. I listen to a variety of podcasters including Northern Frights, Small Town Murder, Criminal, Unsolved Murders|True Crime Stories, Unresolved, just to name a few. Some are serious and some are done lightheartedly. All are good, and all do not disrespect anyone who has died.

Swaps

Swapping with Me: I will try to send out my items as soon as partners are selected, but if something doesn't make it to you, please let me know. Also, I sometimes put things in the mailbox at night and mark the swap sent, so it won't be Post Marked until the next day. So keep that in mind.

BEFORE rating. I want to make sure that you get the items! I want HAPPY partners. I keep a close watch on my swaps, and I usually will contact my partner before she/he contacts me concerning any possible mail mix-ups/hiccups. I will gladly re-send the swap to you. I would rather you receive two items than none at all!

PLEASE RATE UPON RECEIPT OF A SWAP....if all requirements of the swap are met, you must rate a 5. That is required of ALL swaps.

If you're going to be late in sending out a swap, I'm very understanding, so let me know. Communicate with me and we'll work something out.

If there is postage due on a swap I sent you, please let me know, and I will reimburse you.

POSTCARDS: I have collected quite a few to try to match up what possible future partners are interested in. What I would like sent to me are PC's such as something you have no use for. However, I am not interested in Ad/Free/Dirty (soiled) PC's. The PC's could be cartoon, funny, strange, "What the Heck?"-type, something you just don't know what to do with. Please don't send your PC's from another state that you don't live in. I have a ton of those.

Comment: Hey Brenda! TYSVM for your Valentine card! It's so pretty and Shiny! I love it, along with the Valentine notes and your such note in the card! you are so funny, doing the happy dance as I'm your partner, he he! I love it though! I truly love swapping with you and wish it were more. πŸ€— Thanks for telling me about your cute Chihuahua, doing his funny antics. Aren't Chihuahuas precious? I love mine snappy and all, lol! you take care and I hope your Valentine's Day is simply wonderful. And, Oh, I wish you much luck with the Lung power. I hope you get to where you want to be with it.
Response: YAMW! So glad you liked everything! Yes, Chihuahuas are such fun to have. Full of antics. Although Chico likes to sleep. He doesn't play at all. The most he does is run around the house once in a great while. lol He does grunt and groan all the time, his way of speaking, I think. He is a goof. My daughter calls him Cheeks and I call him Grumpy Gus. Have an epic day and I will talk again soon! Hugs, Brenda
