I really enjoy travelling with my husband, walking my dog, collecting rocks and shells at the beach (I have them all around the house on my windowsills), writing to my penpals, photography, and card making (using photos or rubber stamps). I have gone to India, USA, France, England, Costa Rica over the past 15 years! So many more places I would love to visit.
I love anything to do with gardening. It is therapy for me. I grow coneflowers, roses, and herbs (thyme, lavender, and sage). I have created a fairy garden in my backyard (in a pot). I would like to visit as many botanical gardens as possible in my lifetime - starting with Canadian ones.
I love animals, many of them in fact, but my heart flutters fast for birds. I enjoy watching the feeder and writing to my pals. It inspires me.
My favorite times of year are Spring, Fall, and Halloween. I think that birthdays are very important too.
I am a fan of old rock bands, music from the 80's, Star Trek: Voyager, Pipi Longstockings, and Ann of Green Gables. I watch Hawaii 5-0 and Blue Blood, and any shows related to unlikely animal friendships.
I LOVE Tom Hanks, John Travolta, Channing Tatum, Morgan Freeman, and Denzel Washington, Melissa McCarthy, Romy Schneider, JLo. I am a big movie buff. I try to go to the movies as often as I can. I Love being at the theatre and forget about the real world for two hours.
I swap for fun...
If you do not get my items or it does not seem to fit the swap, please let me know and I will gladly resend
If you are missing a rating from me, let me know ASAP. Life is busy with long work hours and many other family duties.
If I do not get your swap item, I will contact you first to give you the opportunity to resolve.
If you send me a pm to let me know you will mail after the deadline, I will rate the swap and not how quick it gets here.
I get larger packages weighted at post office. Regular mail is dropped in a box near my home. The mail lady does not always pickup on Friday or Monday so I try to drop the mail at an outlet when possible. The date stamp on the envelope does not always reflect when the mail left my hands. With the postal service, I have learned to be patient!
I often send my swaps on the deadline date. I am naturally slow.
I will give you a heart for work well done and for a complete swap. Extras are welcome, but sometimes less is better.
I like notecards, rhinestones, pens, postcards, and lined writing paper. I have a serious addiction to Sharpies!!! I also appreciate photos of birds and flowers taken by you.
I love Zentangle and learning new patterns. I haven't had the time to commit to this art.
I collect mint stamps (souvenir sheets) and postcards showing nature, animals, trees, butterflies, birds, cartoons. I love post cards from Zazzle and MAXI cards! I don't enjoy multi views.
I love elephants, giraffes, panda and polar bears, owls, turtles, whales, sea horses, planes, butterflies, Bernese Mountain Dogs, fairies and cute gothic images.
Teas: I like teas from the company Teavana. I enjoy anything with ginger and bold fruit flavors. I am not a big tea drinker, but when I have a tea, I look for comfort. My morning always start with coffee!
@demismummy - She had a double profile: missamminorth.
@Treksek -Flaked me on Christmas Decorated Envelope-international
@nachtsonne - flaked me on my own swap -Book Club-Twisted
Notecard Swap #6 - no rating from @jeanjeanie
RESEND to @pimbot ->Happy happy mail teabags #10 -never rated me nor acknowledged she received my swap.
Prick and Stitch Handmade Card - Easter - no rating from @pandabee This card took me 5 hours to make.
A Journal and a Pen - I was not rated by @bearingitallreno She has not responded to my PMs or emails and she has not logged on since March 17/2014. This is sad considering the swap was expensive for me.
I have sent the swap "Let's Swap Happy Mail-new Edition" to @momtoanimals on August 21, 2014, but it was returned to me as "unable to forward". Carissa has not logged on since August 3rd and she has not replied to my message. I will wait for her to get back to me before I resend the package.
I will angel if you are flaked in my swaps. I create swaps that I can angel.
I welcome private swaps.
I reserve the right to ban a participant that does not meet my requirements. I try to protect participants to my swaps the best I can by being vigilant with reading profiles and checking ratings.
I require recent activities on the profile. If you have not been on Swapbot for a long time, please contact me first before joining.
I request well filled profiles. No need to complain or send me nasty PM. If you are taking the fun out of MY swap, you will be banned and blocked.
I wish people stopped asking me to create USA only swap. I don't live in the USA and can't do it.
If you do not like these rules, please create your own swaps!
I am very active on Instagram. Come see me there: gale123.
