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 34 years to my best friend Mike. We have 2 grown children, a german shepherd and a cat. 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!

A late thank you for the October Muse note and sweet little critter ATC! (I could have sworn I wrote a comment...but I must have forgotten to save it! Or it's kicking around somewhere else, befuddled and confused!) Autumn is being very kind here in Vermont, color therapy was good and there were many leaf peepers boosting the economy..! The temperatures continue to be warm!! Cheers, Carroll
