About Me

CHRISTMAS CARD SWAPS Please, when I join a Christmas Card Swap I really want a Christmas Card from you , signed by you , saying Merry Christmas in you language would be cool, maybe a tradition that you have at Christmas or something you no longer do. What I want is that I put all of the 'SIGNED' cards in a basket and as Christmas gets closer I can start opening them and put them all over our house. So unless I've joined a swap asking for more, just want Christmas cheer from around the world. Oh and if you'd like you can put on the back of the envelope what day you'd like me to open it on. πŸ˜€

Hi there!
I am married and we have four adult children and two beautiful 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. What an adventure we had and we are planning on going back to see some more of Europe in the future.

I am looking forward to this journey through Swap-Bot and all the people that I will be sharing stories and items with. I am trying a bunch of new things that I have never done before - painting and ATC's are just a couple of things. To some who receive something I've made it may look childish because I am just learning, but to me - well I put my big girl panties on and stepped out of my safety zone and gave it a shot and that is what it's all about! Feel free to send me anything that you are doing, especially if you are stepping out of your comfort zone.

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 to begin with.

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.

Postage 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, my address is at the bottom of my profile. When you cut them off your envelopes, please leave a little space and do not cut right to the edges of the steps. 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.

For me it's confirmation that you have received swap, for some reason I'm having to chase people down for ratings and it's getting a little frustrating. I will 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 issue can be resolved.t
