About Me

Hi there! Excited and nervous about joining this site, but have been watching our daughter and what she receives in the mail and find that I am just as excited as she is. So here I am :-).

I am married and our four children are adults now and we have two beautiful and fun grand-daughters. My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary last year (2016) and had a wonderful adventure around Europe, starting in Glasgow. His family history is from Scotland and mine is from Netherlands, so we made it a point to visit those two areas.

It's funny, over the years I have tried many crafty things and now I sit down to put in words what I like doing and I am stumped. I am open to all ideas and am looking forward to this journey through Swap-Bot and all the people that I will be sharing stories and items with. 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 what got me interested in Swap Bot.

So July 8, 2016 is day 1 of another adventure in my life and I am hoping to be able to add or take things off of my bucket list. Also hoping the Group for Newbies helps me figure it all out LOL.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

PHOBIA - Frogs! I don't keep anything material of frogs around our house, not that it scares me as much as the breathing ones do, and I may even send a thing or two of frogs out. But I would be grateful not to receive anything frog related so I don't end up having nightmares of frogs coming out of my closet. I am just learning to accept the few stickers that I have right now, but I have control over how many I have.

SWAPS: I have no intentions of flaking or not sending a swap. I do my best to send things right after I get partnered. If it's something that needs more time to do, I will assure you that it will be sent before deadline date. If you do not receive a swap from me or if you feel I did not do it properly please send me a note before you rate me and hopefully we can work it out. Thank you in advance.

Comment: I always say the note is the best part of swapping and, even with the amazing collection of goodies you sent me, that is especially true today. Thank you for sharing your stories with me and giving me not just a huge smile, but a huge laugh as well. Have a great day and stay strong - spring is coming...😂
Response: Glad you enjoyed it. As I watch it rain I can't help but think the breeding is happening 😟, hoping for no close encounters this year 🤞🏻

Comment: You see wolves! So jealous. Thank you for the lovely card x
Response: Black ones are rare to see, and intimidating when you do see them. Timber wolves you'll see crossing highways and one town we lived in there was always one hanging around people watching and probably looking for the out door cats. We have a lot of foxes in town here and they always have a cat hanging out of their mouths, a cat or chicken that some people try to raise in town. We also have bears, cougars, lynx (always my favourite to see). Lots of stories to tell about wild life. Glad you enjoyed card.
