REMEMBER TO RATE

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 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.

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 it a bit.

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

Thank you for the beautiful words on my profile!!

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?
