About Me

Please over the 1 rating. I have sent a message to her and the host. She has not responded to either one of. But as you can see i did send and she did receive it.

5-2-2020. Please know that ratings may take longer for the next 2 or so weeks. I am having tarssel tunnel surgery so im not sure how will i be feeling. Please do not message me saying please rate as the subject line!! (Asking if i got is another thing) i will also be dependent on my hubby to check the pobox since will not be able to drive and that depends on his his work schedule. I will be relaying on my daughter to run my swaps to the mail box. So we will see how this goes. Items will be marked sent when they are done and in the stack for outgoing mail. It may be the next day before the hit the mail box. Thanks for working with me!!!

3-21-20: so as of now (virus changes pending ofcourse) i am scheduled for tarsel tunnel surgery ( basically ankle) on april 7th. i will couch bound for about a month. During this time i will be depending on my daughter to put outgoing mail down in the box and my hubby to pick up mail at our po box. Some swaps i usually join or host may be put off for a few as i will be on short term disability and out funds will be short. Please give me time to rate. Thank you.

4-2-20. Told that surgery moved to may 5th. Still relaying on family to put mail in out going box down the hill.

I am also trying to get swaps done ahead of time that dont require profile base just so i know that they are done and ready to be addressed on time.

I didnt think i would ever have to write this here but i dont accept friend requests from other swapers that i have NEVER had any interaction with. I also will very picky (respect of my husband) on any males i add as friends. I just blocked a male with no profile, ratings, ect. So be on the look out.

Please give me time to send and to rate. I do NOT appreciate being pushed to rate you the day after a swap closes. I have health issues and a family which come first. I do not expect to be rated the day after please dont expect of me. I do my best to rate when i receive the swap (letter, email, ect)

I recently received a pen pal letter judging me on my page here. Saying that i was not going to make a pen pal for them. Dont judge a book by its cover. Just because you say love green and its not one my top favs doesn't mean that we cant be friends. Or cause im religious and your not. I wont "shove" mine on you if you dont "shove" yours on me. Pen paling is about making friends. Having differences is a good. They can you a look at something for another angle. Im pen paling for friends not to judge or be judged. I try to give everyone a chance to be friends in pen paling. 11-20-19

Update: due to work, life, ect we try to go 2 times week to the po box. And check it. Thursday and Saturday. Sometimes its just Saturdays. Thanks for understanding. 10/2/2019

Update 2: i mark sent as soon as i place place items in the outgoing mail where i personally live. So if we place my stack in the box on say sat after pick up the post mark will be for mon. If i dont i will forget to mark sent. Thanks for understanding 10/03/2019

I plan on trying to up-cycle envelopes and other items. (I use online billing for some items and left with the somewhat usable envie) i did get this idea from another swaper on here. Im not that cheap but i hate wasting.

Im a mom of a teen daughter. Im a Christian. Married for 6 yrs. But together for 7yrs. We enjoy hiking, being outside, Day trips. Due to my health right now i would only like to do 1 or 2 swaps at a time and easy, simple ones incase i become under the weather again. I just dont want someone thinking im lazy. For me this is a hobby and not to get over whelming and stressful.

We have 2 dogs, 1 ferret, 1 rabbit. We had to put my lil taco down nov 9th He was 15yrs old. And became sick and couldn't recover.

If you dont receive swaps please let me know. Emails do get typed wrong, mail gets lost, ect. I do try to snap pocs on my phone of letter written, bible studies, ect so if you dont care i can print and resend.

Im also not afraid to give you a 1 if i have reached out to you after not receiving your swap. I know first hand life gets in the way. All i ask is you reach out to me personally (here is fine) not a group message. If You dont respond to my messages, profile posts, emails, ect i will rate a 1.

If you sign up for swap plz rate swaps as they come in. Again i know life can be crazy but it is disrespectful not to rate and it hurts the others ratings.

For Christmas time:

I would love (if you wish) to have swap sent in Christmas cards to me. Glitter, religious, other countries, ect. I hang them on the wall around our tree. New or used from that great aunt sally you cant stand. Lol. If you cant hey no biggie. Just some have a stacks laying round or ones they plan on tossing. Thanks.
