About Me

PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE PEOPLE!!! For some it confirmation that you have received item. Thank you.

Hi there!

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. What an adventure we had and we are planning on going back to see some more of Europe in the future.

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 becoming a swap-bot member. Hoping to make new friends and find new interest.

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.
Update: My relationship with material frogs is improving! 😀. My relationship with live frogs is not happening, and I'm finally have accepted that I'll never be one of those princesses who kisses a frog and it turns out to be her knight in shinning armor - not going to happen! Fortunately I already have my knight in shinning armor and don't have to go around looking for frogs - {{shiver}}

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. PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO RATE ME when you receive my swaps so I know you got it. Thank you in advance.

Comment: Great card, Bonnie -- thanks very much! My first card from Prince George - I wonder why the two rivers have such varying color?
Response: Ithe Fraser us usually very muddy not sure why, but it does have a much faster current so maybe that' has something to do with it. Doesn't matter where you cross paths with the Fraser Rive its muddy.

Comment: Thank you so much for that pretty envelope and it's beautiful content. I am very curious about the hairties and will give them a try very soon. Thank you for iron man Washi too. My 5yo was deeply impressed by it. 😉
Response: I have very long hair and will only use those kinds because they are so easy to get out. Double them up though because they tend to break if you use just one at a time. Glad your son likes the tape.
