What I Pledge

I take my swapping very seriously, I like to read my partners profile to get a sence of who they are and will always try to send the best packages. If for some reason you do not get a package from me, please pm me and I will resend. If for some reason I would ever be late, I will always pm you before the send date.

About Me

I've been swapping now since Feb. 2008. I am totally addicted and have made many new friends. I love to surprise my Swap-Bot friends with RAKs.

I'm a homemake who has been married for 35 years to my best friend Mike. We have 2 grown children, a german shepherd and 2 cats. Now that the kids are gone we have much more time to do the things we enjoy. We have a Harley and love to ride as much as possible. I have more time (and room) to do my crafting.

My favorite colors are green and purple.

Favorite Books

I love to read science fiction and thriller/suspense books. My favorite book series is the Xanath series by Piers Anthony. Some other authors that I like are Patricia Cornwell, Johnathan Kellerman, Robin Cook and James Patterson.

Favorite Movies

I love action/adventure, comedy and science fiction movies. I'm totally into the Marvel movies I can watch them over and over again.

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite shows are Gothem, Scorpian, Big Bang Theory, Lucifer, Lethal Weapon, The Librarians and Marvel's Agents of Shield.

Favorite Crafts

Since joining swap-bot I have had the pleasure of being exposed to artist and art that I had never seen before. The level of craftsmanship still amazes me and makes me want to explore my own talents. I’ve been making atc's, handmade envies, twinchies and postcards. I’ve been playing with mail art and have just started making zines. What fun!

Comment: Love all that postal ephemera, but it confused my mail delivery person (who is not the sharpest tool in the shed). She wanted to charge me for postage due until I pointed out that you'd used the correct postage on the address side & that the stickers & labels on the message side were Mail Art. She drove off shaking her head. She's the same one who takes great pleasure in marking through the postage stamps with her ugly black marker! Sorry for your extra long winter. Been in the 90's here already.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard. 💕

Comment: What a delightful swap! Not only are the washi samples lovely, your envelope beautiful but I am so excited about the jokers you sent as well. I crave foreign ones and the ones you sent are fantastic. Hearts, hearts, and more hearts!

Comment: I liked that you did a bit of fish on the address side of p.c. too...even the postage stamp had to do with water. Thanks for making this a fun swap!

Comment: OMG! Loved getting this ATC & didn’t want to even open the envelope, but after I so carefully did, I found the ATC to be super as well. Thank you for making my day!
Comment: Absolutely adore all of the cat stamps! It amazes me that you had so many in your stash to cove the PC. I so appreciate your thoughtfulness!
Comment: I laughed when I read the PC! While I'm not a lizard fan, this was a great PC, especially with all the green.
