About Me

I have really been lax about responding to ratings and I apologize for that! Working on doing a better job in 2021 as they are appreciated! Thanks for your understanding! Hugs and Happy Swapping 😉


My oldest and his family have moved to Colorado Springs, CO over the 2019 Christmas holidays! They are so excited and we have a new place to visit! LOL!


I am married and have two sons & an awesome DIL - I love the thought of scrap-booking and making cards, but have been lacking the energy as of late! Also love reading and meeting new friends through fb or other group sites! Hope I can participate in some of the swaps on this site and make some new friends!

I was in two B-day clubs with some gals in the UK, from FB and participated in a Christmas card exchange as well. I am always amazed at how creative the cards are from these lovely ladies!

When my oldest son left for college in August 2009, I felt such a void in my life, then I got on fb and found the groups I was involved with - I also found fv and was addicted for awhile!!

Now my oldest graduated from college and Army ROTC in May 2013 and my youngest graduated from college in 2017! Time does fly!

I enjoy meeting new people, exchanging cards and pcs with them, as well as going to local scrap booking events and meeting new folks!

So far I have been lucky that any swaps I have signed up for, I have been able to fulfill my obligation. I would hope that would continue.

I am not into drama and will try to send stuff that I think my swap partner will enjoy - however if I miss the mark, well stuff happens! I am very easy going with what folks send me and just look forward to seeing how others respond to the different swaps!

Loves/Likes - My family, Being happy, Hearing kiddos laugh, Being with gal pals, Scrapbooking, Card making, Meeting new people, Love, love, love to read! The library is one of my favorite places!! The beach, Halloween, Christmas, Birthdays! Soccer, Taking pictures, Being able to help others, Being able to laugh at myself , A clean house (this is a dream of mine but I am a bit of a clutter bug, so...), Traveling, Vacations, Flowers, Learning new things,

Dislikes- Drama when it is not necessary, People that just need to get over themselves, Vacations that do not work out, Kids being disrespectful to their elders and each other, Car problems, Health issues, Feeling like someone has taken advantage of you or someone you care about, Housework! lol

Ratings - I am very good about trying to rate quickly, so if you sent me something and do not see a rating timely, please let me know! Either I did not get the item or it got mixed in with other stuff!! That does happen sometimes!

Flaked on the Punch Art ATC #26 - touch of Red I hosted: FibreJunky - I pmed and emailed, but have not heard from her - swap was angeled - she should not sign up for any additional swaps I host - grrrr!

Flaked on the Punch Art ATC #33-Two Twists that I hosted:Emawee0307 - I emailed her, as she has not been on swap-bot since the day she marked sent, but her partners have not received anything - swap will be angeled, and she is banned from my future swaps - dang this is getting old!

Got flaked on for the Postcards for Sonya - GingerR - how sad this was a RAK sort of swap, so...

Got flaked on the What's for Thanksgiving Dinner? PC swap by teamtiredfeet - what a drag! How hard is it to send a dang pc?? ;(

Flaked on by @Ratatatat in the My Sept 2016 - EDITED swap - this was a bummer as it was a bit time consuming as it covered a whole month - so... The host is angeling the swap with her Oct info.

Swaps

I love all postcards - have a soft spot for vintage postcards but really have not met a postcard I didn't like! LOL!

I would love to receive some cute address labels and could exchange pcs for them! If you can help me out, please send me a pm!

Not trying to be a pain but am cutting way back on international swaps - especially pc swaps! Between the cost of postage increasing and having to resend pcs overseas - it has just been a pain for all! I have really enjoyed sending and receiving from the overseas swaps, but need to make cuts, so... Hopefully everyone understands!

Comment: Thank you so much for your nice note. Sounds like you usually have a very productive writing week! That's good, and I like the idea of Chemo Angels. I also loved your Ziggy address labels! I've always loved his comics, but he's so hard to find.

Comment: Thanks for the cool postcard with vintage stamps! When I lived in Colorado I went up Pikes Peak in a car, it was too cold to hike it in December. I hope your son gets to hike all those.

Comment: Yes! I do have visitor sites I take for granted. I'm only about a 1/2 hour from Newport which is a HUGE tourist area and I haven't been in years!

Comment: Thank you for the card of the view from the Arch. Yes, I have many places around here I take for granted. The Grand Haven Lighthouse and nice beaches. But its always filled with tourists so I stay away. lol
Response: Hi! So glad you enjoyed the Arch pc - I forget there is so much to do in St. Louis and do not think of it has being a vacation spot but that's because I take it all for granted and like you, I don't want to hang with tourists! LOL! You do have lovely places to visit near you - do you go to any of the beaches? I would have a tough time staying away from them as I love the beach and water! Thank you for the sweet comment, rating, and heart! Please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Thank you so much for your letter! You need to become a top dog and show them how it's done. I hope you have an amazing day! Hugs, Diane
Response: Hi there! I was hoping I did not sound too much like a Vicky Downer after I wrote to you - sigh! I should never write about work! Due to the work structure, I could never make top dog there and really, would not want to be as there seems to be a lack of integrity! And God willing I retire in four years and a month, so... LOL! Thank you so much for the sweet comment, rating, heart, and for joining the swap! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
