I am a married mom of four grown kids, and very cool grandma of one amazing little granddaughter and a cutiepatootie grandson. I love to travel, and have been lucky enough to do a bit of it, picking up 'treasures' for my addictions as I go! I love to be with my family (you know: good, old dysFUNctional family fun...there's nothing quite like it!), alter anything, hang out at home, and craft. I am just a regular (do I dare say normal?) gal having fun along the way on swap-bot :)
I enjoy sending extra little goodies along with my swap...sharing the wealth! If you can't use them...don't like them...send them along to someone else :) It won't bother me in the least! I've even gotten some of my own stuff back!! (Of course, I liked it enough to send it in the first place, so I thought someone was sending me great stuff !!!!)
This is probably a good time to say that I like to give hearts:) If it looks like a swapper has gone through some effort to make it nice for me, done deal. It makes me feel good, and I know it makes the other swapper feel good, too! Costs me nothing, spreads joy...it's a win-win. I guess I really don't get the big deal.

Estate sales - cheap thrills every weekend!! vintage anything (so I guess this is where I include my husband!), typewriter keys and print, ARTsy rubber stamps, old metal tins, carnival supplies, old paper anything: old labels - perfume, crate, pharmacy, soda, champagne, anything, really!! ........ charts, books, old kids' books, charms, tarnished metal tags, vintage gift wrap, art paper from foreign lands, botanicals, vintage holiday goodies, old airline advertising, seed packets, cigar bands, pictures, maps, stamps, lotto and other old game cards, parts and pieces, certificates, French and Italian print and postcards, interesting embellishments, old illustrated button cards, soft ribbon, handmade lace, old watch and broken jewelry parts, millinery supplies, old toys and miniatures, flea markets, reindeer, mail art, anything birds, ephemera, chenille chicks, old advertising, old beads, German and Victorian scrap, found objects, good jokes, handmade things, eating lunch out, collecting any and all of the things listed, creating with my sisters -happypup, peachykeen and monkeybrains.
My latest love is vintage holy cards, especially images of Mary, rosaries, and vintage holy medals :) Why is it that every time I think I have quieted my need to "feed the beast," another addiction pops up!!!!
You can count on me to fulfill my swap commitments. I will rate quickly and will let you know if something is amiss on my end. Please let me know if you did not receive something prior to rating me; I will do whatever I can to make it right!! For me, swap-bot involves spreading a little 'joy', so why wouldn't I want to make it right, right??! :)
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I love these swaps the best...it seems like I can really count on my partner to try to make it as special as what I am sending out. I am especially interested in holy cards, rosaries, religious medals, ephemera, assemblage materials, Victorian or German scrap, ribbon; I think I have some pretty cool stuff to trade :) I can offer you some great ephemera, assemblage materials, collage images,and lots more, considering my 'stash'!!! - just ask me!!! would love other swaps, too... thanks!!
