About Me

Profile Edited 4/8/17

We live on one of the remaining dairy farms in Northern Virginia. Between us we have 7 kids & 11 grandchildren. I've started a new job after being home for about 8 years. On our farm we have cows, chickens & bunnies! We adopted a 10 year old Chihuahua her name is Peanut. I love being a Gramma and it's the most important thing to me!

We are involved with Boy Scouts & 4H. I love to read & dance! Belly Dancing & gardening are my hobbies. I also do Barre, Jazzercise & Zumba. I love to play board games my favorites are Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly & any board games I can play with my grand-kids. I also love to read! Right now I'm reading mostly non-fiction.

I love nature & consider that my religion. I love being in the garden and getting my hands dirty. I love all my animals on the farm. They all have wonderful personalities. I have flower gardens & vegetable gardens. I tried raised beds & hale bale gardening this year.

I am very Patriotic and love my country & those protecting it! I grew up a Navy brat. So please do not ever send me anything that puts down the USA. I would never do that to you.

My Favortie Things!

I mostly join postcard, deco & atc swaps. I try to be the best swapper I can be. But I have had some bumps along the way.

Hosting & Rating

Hosting Swaps- I take hosting very seriously. I go through all profiles of swappers who sign up for my swaps. Please do not take it personally if I ban you from a swap. I'm just being careful & want to make my swaps a fun & safe swap for everyone.

Ratings- If you ever receive something from me with postage due. Please let me know & I will send you the postage.

I mark my swaps sent when they go into the mailbox at the post office or in my home mailbox. This means they might not get postmarked until the next day or if it's a weekend or holiday it could be a few days. Please remember things don't always get postmarked right away.

For the 1 I have, I have sent two postcards to replace the one she didn't get. She hasn't been on here since 11/2011. I have been an angel for swaps to try & makeup for this one.

Please let me know if you have not received your swap from me before rating a 1 or 3. I will gladly make another one.

I am an easy going person, just let me know if you need more time for a swap and I'll work with you.

Comment: Thank you for finally fulfilling this swap. I truly hate to have to rate you a three, but you posted this online swap nearly two weeks late with no communication at all, despite the host emailing and pming you, and the fact you were login in during that time. A little communication goes a long way if you had a problem.
