About Me

PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE!!! 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 fulfil 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..

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.

Comment: You did FABULOUS on showing off your tape! I try to cover it all too and do smallish pieces, but you got me beat with even smaller ones. It was fun to check them all out. I especially loved the curled sleeping cats tape! :). Thanks for the tapes and the extra deco tapes. So colorful & fun!! :)

Comment: Thanks for the lovely little package. I liked everything you sent. I hope you'll see some rain soon up there! It's been a rough go for some folks on the mainland with all the fires. Take care!
Response: We are good, but Williams Lake/Hansville area could sure use it and Kamloops/Kelowna as well. Don't think they've seen much sun this summer 😥. Think everyone in many provinces will be glad when fires get put out because of the smoke.

Comment: I wish I got to see that much wildlife! Mostly I just see insects and squirrels!
Response: I love our wildlife and always get a new appreciation for when someone comes to visit and sees wildlife in its natural habitat rather than in a zoo
