About Me

I'm Diane and I'm from Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh area) and I'm currently going through a divorce. I'm the Mom of 2 girls ages 21 and 18 and a Grandmother of 1. We also have 2 dogs-Sassy (Boston Terrier) and Kiara (Shepperd/Greyhound mix). My furbabies are very much loved and spoiled as all family members should be :) I'm a huge animal lover and advocate for the Pitbull breed :)


I am a HUGE hockey fan and I am an obsessed Pittsburgh Penguins fan..love my boys to death! GO PENS!


Favorite Music

I really enjoy listening to classical and instrumental jazz as I find it very soothing and relaxing! But I also enjoy some of todays music too! Pop and 80's are great! I'm not so fond of country music though!

Favorite Movies

I absolutely love watching movies. I do not see the need to sit here and list my favorites as that would take up too much space. My favorite genre is horror/thrillers!

Favorite Television

The Walking Dead, The Following, Salem, and others...

  • Address lables

  • My favorite colors are orange, black, all shades of blue, pink and purple!

Things I Dislike/Please Don't

  • Crafting supplies of any kind! I have not been blessed with the talent to craft or be artsy, so if you send me any items relating to crafts they will be wasted as I have no use for them =( However, handmade creations by YOU are always welcome!
  • I can't STAND the scents of rasberry, vanilla or wild berry anything. Please be considerate enough to not include these in scented/edible items as they make my stomach turn...thanks =)
  • Anything smelling like cigarette smoke. No one smokes in my home so please be considerate enough not to send me any items smelling like smoke, enough said.
  • WHITE CHOCOLATE...I do NOT like it but my family does, so while it won't go to waste, I'd still prefer if you did not send it!
  • Although I do penpal I do not like FB's, decos, slams and the like..please do not send me any as they will not be passed on, none of my pals that I am aware of are fond of them either.

  • Please no religious or political themed items. While I am open minded to many things, I prefer to keep my religious and political views to myself...most of the time. I hope you can respect my wishes and in return I will respect your views as well.

  • I hate clowns...they are creepy..please do not send me any..real or themed as I will more than likely have a heart attack...they scare me!

I have an odd sense of humor..one could even say I'm somewhat of a saracastic person, I just find the stupidest things funny and love to laugh! I consider myself 'young at heart' and love life and plan on living it to the fullest and best way I know how!

Swaps and More!

I always send out my swaps! If for some strange reason you do not receive from me, PLEASE contact me first before leaving a bad rating! I have no problem in re-sending if needed! I always keep my postal receipts as proof of mailing and will happily send a copy if requested!

I always rate upon arrival, but sometimes I may overlook it without meaning to! If I do, send me a gentle reminder so I can give you the credit you deserve. I hope you will do the same for me!

I do have 3 dogs in my household and while I try my best to keep their fur away from my packages, it IS possible one to a few can slip in from time to time...I apologize ahead of time, but sometimes it is a hard thing to avoid! So um yeah..pardon any fur that slips past me! =)

I do re-gift items if I feel I can not use them and can find a home for something that someone else will appreciate more! I do not do this to offend anyone, but why have something lie around when you can find a better use for it?! =)

Extras are NOT necessary in a swap to earn a heart from me. If you put some thought and consideration into making a package for me, it will show based on that alone.

If you are going to be late on a swap for any reason I will NOT rate you down as long as you communicate this to me! I am very understanding and I know that 'life happens'. Do not be afraid to contact me and let me know..it would be greatly appreciated! And I in return would do the same if the situation should arise!

When I host a swap, I try my best to keep it safe and flaker free and fun for everyone. If something should happen that you get flaked on one of my hosted swap, rest assured that I will angel for you or find someone who will.
