NOTICE

PLEASE do not feel that you have to add extra goodies to a swap - unless it's required. ALTHOUGH I am always happy to receive postage stamps (so remember to cut them off your envelopes you receive in case you get my name again) and postcards. As for crafting stuff, I have a lot of it and I'm trying to downsize a bit.

POSTCARDS: Naked (unless swap calls otherwise), with a little more written on it then the swap name, say something - how's the weather, learning anything new, something about your town - ANYTHING. Its disappointing to get a PC with just the swap title and your name on it.

RATINGS: For me it's confirmation that you have received swap. I do not flake and do my best to fulfill swap requirements. If you feel I did not meet requirements or you did not receive swap, please let me know (through swap-bot message) so i can resend.

I CHECK MY MAIL DAILY AND RATE THE DAY I RECEIVE THE SWAP. If I have not rated you it means that I have not received swap. Do not be afraid to send me a note to check because some areas take longer to get here than others.

About Me

Hi there!
I am married and we have four adult children and two beautiful grand daughters. My husband have been married for 33 years and I'm happy to say we celebrate two of our anniversaries in Europe and looking forward to celebrate more there.

I dabble in a little bit of everything, swapping is my way of keeping busy. I do a bit of diamond art, a bit of sewing going to start knitting a bit again, and any kind of crafting that I see interesting. So you can say I'm not committed to anything 😁.

I am committed to postcards, I love to read whats written on them and the picture. I enjoy sharing them with our grand-daughters. Whenever we travel I always send them postcards, whether its from a big city or a small village, if I can find a postcard it will be sent to our grand-daughters, with a little story about the area and they look forward to getting them. Our oldest grand-daughter has started looking up the postcard subject/city, like the Colliseum in Rome, she found it very interesting and told me about it when we got home. Our youngest grand-daughter will go through my travel book and pick places she wants to go to and recognizes pictures of postcards I've sent. I hope someday we are able to take them on a journey with us.

POST STAMPS

Do you just throw out your postage stamps that come on your envelopes? Feel free to start saving them and then send them to me, send me a message and I will send you my address. When you cut them off your envelopes, please leave a little space and do not cut right to the edges of the stamps. Know that I will greatly appreciate them and if I have them I'll share mine with somebody else who also appreciate them. Thank you in advance.
Post Stamps new and used
I like Canada, Finland, Netherlands and Zodiac stamps, but I do collect a wide variety so feel free to send any postage stamps. Please do not cover your stamps with tape

POSTCARDS

POSTCARDS - NAKED - written on and stamped, unless swap requires differently.

I'm excited to receive post cards that highlight areas, culture, animals, structures etc, and reading what people have to share on the back, this is why I got into Swap-Bot to begin with.

Architecture Country/State Scenic views Flags. Animals Fantasy Steampunk are some ideas, but really I like all postcards.

And I really have to bite my tongue on this one, but I send postcards to my grandchildren that I think they would like. They like frogs (choke). Because they know my fear of frogs I find it amusing sometimes to send them a postcard of a frog just to shock them. Secretly I am hoping by doing this they will quit video calling me with a live frog on thier head {SHIVERS - horror stories, ugh}.

DISLIKE:
Chinese Fashion postcards

Comment: I love this Canadian Rockies postcard! I was just in Banff National Park a month ago on vacation with my parents. We were stunned by the natural beauty everywhere and would love to go back soon. You lucky to live to close to them. Thanks again!
Response: Any time we travel East we have to travel through The Rockies and every season they are spectacular. I am happy that you got to see them.

Comment: How can any flower be ugly?
Response: I i find some lack color or shape. I believe the PC I sent you I thought that the fact that the picture was so close you didnt really get to see what the flower looked like. So it may not so much be the flower but the picture, but I may also be think od a different one.

Hi Bonnie!! I absolutely loved all the items you sent in the 'paired envie of fun'--you sent so many extras but you can be sure that I will use it all. In fact I plan to write several letters over Christmas and your paper is my first choice! I hope your Christmas drive to your granddaughter's was uneventful---you did not say where you were going though...was it to Rupert?
