About Me

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 :)

badge

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.

Favorite Music

Sade, Norah Jones, Andrea Bocelli, Los Lonely Boys, TranSiberian Orchestra, Dido, The Four Seasons, Dave Matthews Band, Corrine Bailey Ray, Opera, Oldies.

Favorite Things

swaps

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.

private swaps

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!!
