About Me

02/16/2020 Hi All! I am going to be away from my computer and mail until the 22nd- we are going on my belated 60th B-day trip to Punta Cana! I am so excited!! I will rate everyone when we return and get settled - thanks for your patience! 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 (with kids and pets, this is a dream of mine!), Traveling, Vacations, Flowers, Learning new things, Taking craft classes

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: Opening your super sweet mail just made my heart warm and smile... I'm getting a little emotional because, for some reason, your handwriting and the way you wrote in the card reminds me of my grandmother and I miss her from time to time... especially around Valentine's Day, which was also her birthday. Thank you for bringing up sweet memories, and for the incredibly sweet happy mail. (Sorry this got sappy/personal...)

Comment: I love that Erin Hanson quote. Yes, it goes so well with your clouds photograph. Thank you Vickyen. Fingers crossed for a March with many blue sky days dotted with clouds (not too many days when we can't see the sky).
