About Me

** UPDATE 2/21/2019 ** I have had the privilege to host several swaps. I've only been in swap-bot two years but I have had so much fun and have made many friends through the swaps.

I WOULD NEVER FLAKE ON A SWAP. NEVER. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A SWAP FROM ME - PLEASE CONTACT ME. but PLEASE give me the time to respond. I work full time, have 10 grandkids that I spend time with often, my husband is a pastor and therefore, I'm involved in lots of evening activities. BUT I WILL NOT FLAKE ON YOU. As a host of swaps, I have "angeled" for others who for whatever reason didn't get their swaps in time or ever.

Please remember "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." (Plato)


I am a happy mother of 5 (blended family) with 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Crazy! I'm 63 years old and like to think of myself as a free spirit. I've been a scrapbooker, a stamper, a knitter and NOW .. a swap-botter!

My second husband is a retired Methodist pastor. Faith is pretty important to us. organized religion has been hurtful to many people. I prefer a faith that encompasses all walks of life, all faiths, all people. John is the pastor at a Recovery Worship service currently and it has been such a blessing.

Favorite Music

Rock & Roll! Actually Im pretty diverse in my music listening but I do not like old fashioned country, nor do I like opera. I don't like rap.

Favorite Crafts

  • Swapbot -- mainly ATCs, ATC jams, and 9LP
  • Knitting
  • Scrapbooking
  • Simple wood projects
  • Quilling

COLLECTIONS

Mary Engelbriet--anything!

stars! peacocks (they are my "token.")

I like decorating my desk for the holidays each month. so I like the seasons and the holidays.

FAVORITE COLORS

AQUA TEAL TURQUOISE PINK RED PURPLE

rainbow

favorite flowers & house plant

snapdragons, hollyhocks, lily of the valley, black-eyed susan, clematis, violets, daisies, moss roses, lilacs

Christmas cactus African violets anything that climbs - ivy

DISLIKES

Party-related political stuff

Death or dying related

I don't like tea.

I don't use coupons.

I prefer to NOT receive photocopies of your previous work.

Comment: Thanks for the wonderful magpie ! I appreciate the variety of items you added! You must have been reading my mind because I did not have anymore address labels, and was planning on buying them. Now I don't have too.
Response: I know I have always enjoyed getting mailing labels - so passing on the joy! thank you for the rating and the heart. I kind put my heart and soul into that Magpie. My husband was actually intrigued by it as well, when most of the time he just thinks this is all silly fun.

Comment: Hi Annie, I received your swap today and thank you for the cute Valentines. I do appreciate them. I rated you a 5 and here is why: I had to hunt down which swap this was for, as it wasn't written anywhere. Secondly, this is Swap-bot. Not a place for you to tote your business. I recommend you listen to the podcast "The Dream" (the background for it looks kind of like a dollar bill) and please start at the first podcast, so it will all make sense. I would also like to say that it turns people off when you throw your business at them. I know I don't like it, and I know others do not like it either. They come here to swap, not to buy.
Response: Thank you for your feedback. You must be referring to a label? It wasn’t meant to be “toting” my business. I am sorry it offended you. It never occurred to me that it would offend anyone so duly noted. Thank you for that feedback.
