Hi, I'm Janis from Texas. Yee Haw!
I have 23 year old twin boys and a 28 year old son who is developmentally delayed due to a rare chromosome disorder called "Ring 4". More information on this disorder can be found HERE.
Grayson went to the Doctor today (8/2/19) & he is in the clear! His arm is healed & he doesn't even need Physical Therapy. It is such a relief. Thank you all for sending him happy mail to cheer him up. It really made a difference.
People have requested that I post a little wishlist for Grayson. All mail can be addressed directly to him at my mailing address. Just PM me if you need it.
If you want to send him something, please know that any used, handmade, & recycled items are just as good as something you bought from the store. Grayson will love it just the same.
I have been married for 29 years. Our anniversary is Sept. 14th. I was a military wife for 10 years. We lived on Ft. Huachuca in AZ: (Loved it!!). Ft. Eustis in Newport News, Virginia: (Liked it!) & Ft. Meade in Maryland: (Hated it!) where my husband worked for the The National Security Agency (NSA) He is a Veteran of the Gulf War. He left 1 week after I found out I was pregnant with Grayson & came back 2 weeks after he was born. My twins were born at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia.
I LOVE killer whales...all whales really, but Orca are my all time favorite!!
I have 3 dogs...Baloney (13 yr old Chiweenie). He was part of an unwanted litter & I adopted him from the SPCA. He has diabetes & we have to give him an insulin injection in the AM & PM. Sprocket (10 yr old Schnoodle) was rescued from a neglectful owner. His hair was so matted that he had bleeding & sores. The first thing we did was take him to the groomer to get shaved. He was so happy after that. We just rescued Bianca (7 yr old Doxie-Pin). She was neglected & went from home to home until she found us. They are all loved, spoiled, fat & happy little dogs who get lots of hugs & treats :)

**Things I don't like...
Please do not send: These are things I do not need or have an excess of, so while I appreciate you sending them, please be aware that they might be shared with others, which will put a smile on someone else's face too.
I am the founder of the Experienced ATC Swappers Group as well as the USA ATC Swap group.
I like all types of ATC's especially if they are hand drawn/painted in your unique "style". Just because it's not listed here doesn't mean I don't like it...these are just some of my faves that I can think of tight now...
I do not claim to be an expert in any of the swaps that I host. I am often trying out new things right along with you & for the very 1st. time. Sometimes I fail & sometimes I succeed, but I give it my best shot & hope you will do the same.
I swap USA only due to postage costs, wait times & reliability.
Feel free to use any of my past swap ideas, wording or pictures to host your own swap or to start an International version of a swap I am currently hosting. After all, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
I ALWAYS send & I ALWAYS rate, so if you are missing a card, package or rating please let me know before giving a negative rating so I can make it right. If something prevents me from sending on time I will always let you know.
I always angel all of my swaps as long as you rate the person that flaked on you a 1.
Please don't hesitate to PM me if something doesn't look right, if I made a mistake on something or for any constructive comments. I welcome any FRIENDLY guidance, advice or reminders.
I am a tape fiend & I always make sure my envelopes & packages are taped up VERY well, so you might want a pair of scissors handy when you open up my swaps.
SMOKE STINKS! - I prefer not to swap with smokers unless you are very careful about keeping your items away from the smoke.
