About Me

Life has been throwing me a curve ball lately. I am trying to hang in there. I do have a 1 right now, and intend on fixing that as soon as I am able. Oddly enough, it was a swap I squeezed in just to help my partner. Ah well, no good deed goes unpunished I suppose. Thank you for your care, concern, and prayers.

PLEASE contact me if you are unhappy with something I sent you. I want to bring a smile to your face. :D Communication is key to a good swap-bot experience!

I will be slowing down on the 'bot for the summer. I plan on sticking primarily to private swaps. Please do not drop me from any groups; I am still here, just not as often ;) This is a year of BIG changes for me!

I am a mama to 3. We homeschool, and are active in our community. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I love to encourage others! People are not labels! We are all individuals, and we are all special.

If you are hurting, lonely, or curious...you are not alone. You are loved more than you know! I serve a very big God. He sees you! He loves you and will accept you for you, just as you are!!! I would be happy to tell you about Him, or even just show you His love!

Light and cheery, funny ART-O-MAT! My first was from DC! Walking in the woods, being outdoors, geocaching, letterboxing

I love children's books and illustrations. I like to make and receive art made from damaged children's books, giving them new life! I also craft with RD books. I love all the colorful covers! I have a large collection of vintage textbooks, and children's books. Our favorite illustrators include Mary Blair, Eric Carle, Eloise Wilkin, Tasha Tudor, Becca Stadtlander, Dorothy Grider. I can't get enough of those old little elf books and the smaller sized books with adorable illustrations. I had a large collection of Little Golden Books as a child. I collect Sweet Pickles (have most) books and cards (in the little green bus). My family is always on the hunt for Moonbeam Monkey books. We collect Landmark historical fiction books. We also have most of the Boxcar Children series, BSC LittIe Sister, and the Saddle Club. I love to read books on Appalachian culture. I have most of the Foxfire books. Sometimes I'll read a book just because it reminds me of my time down south! Missionary stories give me a sense of adventure and wanderlust. I am drawn in by the characters created by Beverly Lewis in her Amish fiction books. You can find me at the library wandering through the non-fiction stacks. Oh, and of couse the children's room, too! I stroll through the picture books, amazed and inspired by all the different style illustrations. :D


ferretlady rated for Profile Surprise Swap on Sep 17, 2012
Comment: (Edit to add 9/18): Thank you for the response! If you had let me know that you were having problems, I wouldn't have left a rating. But I never heard anything at all from you for weeks. A simple quick note would have made a big difference. --------(end of edit) I'll change this rating when I receive a package. I am sorry about this, but I feel I have been very patient & have allowed more than sufficient time. I realize that you said the first package got lost in the mail, but you said you would resend something & it's been almost 2 months now.
Response: Absolutely my fault. I will try to get your resend out to you soon. A lot of time and effort went into the first package, and you sent a lovely package to me.
