About Me

I enjoy doing a variety of swaps: sticker sheets, notecards, postcards, stationery, bookmarks, fridgie magnets, matchboxes, penpal letters, photos, journals, and more.

I have been penpaling for many years, and enjoy making new friends.

I'm a member of several Meetup groups in the Los Angeles and Pasadena area, and a former Red Hat Lady.

IÒ€ℒm a member of a 12-Step program.

I enjoy making paper crafts, and mail art (I make funvelopes).

I'm a bargain shopper, and I love to hunt for treasures at local thrift stores and estate sales.

Likes:

Floral, cats, nature scenes, art work, Victorian, chefs, Mary Engelbright, Dr. Seuss, Christian, Angels, frogs, Betty Boop, Laurel & Hardy, Lisa Frank, Peanuts, Shrek, Red Hat Society, Far Side comics, clean humor, Kakuro, TalkRadio, inspirational quotes, human interest articles, true stories of Random Acts of Kindness, PBS/Huell Howser).

Dislikes:

Tiny stickers/tiny pieces of paper/tiny envelopes - I have no use for these, and will throw them away! Goth, pirates, Halloween, sports, Sudoku, politics, witches, occult, Dotee dolls, Steampunk.

About Me

I am a self-employed house-cleaner, and I also do pet-sitting. I am a single senior. I have 2 cats: Catness and Howie. I rescued both of them (separately) from bad situations.

About My Swaps

I always try to send my swaps out early, before the deadline. If someone doesn't receive one of my swaps after the deadline date, please let me know right away, before rating me for the swap. I will gladly send out a replacement swap,

Comment: Hi Barbara! Thank you for the wonderful little card and all the information and pictures about Howie and Catness! I t was wonderful to read about your cats! One of ours likes to lay right in the middle of walkways. We've learned to step over her, since she hasn't stopped doing it even after we stepped on her tail in the dark a couple of times. Cats are the best. <3

Comment: Thank you B for the view from your apartment. Beautiful place. I once lived near Tucson and miss the big blue southern sky and warm sunny weather. Nice that the large tree survived, probably made it stronger as a result. Thanks for sharing your neighbourhood with me.

Comment: Barbara, your gorgeous letter arrived today 08-29-19. It is adorable! I love the Country Primitive themed stationary paper you used. What a gift! I have not seen paper like that in decades! Yes, my preferred stationary of choice is lined (also known as "ruled") too, for I cannot write in a straight line to save my life. I am definitely going to write you back! Lora
Response: Great! I look forward to getting your letter.

Comment: Thank you so much for your letter! I'm sorry to hear about the parking situation; I could definitely see how that would be an annoying hassle. Hopefully they will enforce some better rules for the visitors soon!
