Hi, I'm Janis from Texas. Yee Haw!
I have 25 year old twin boys and a 30 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].(https://rarediseases.org/rare-diseases/ring-chromosome-4/)
I have been married for 32 years. 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!). He is a Veteran of the Gulf War & 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.
Grayson - Christmas Cards!
I have been asked so I thought I would include this. If you would like to send a Christmas card or PC to Grayson he would love it. He loves corny jokes written inside of them if you are so inclined.
If you want to include anything inside he likes to get $1 bills (or as he calls them "tips" to save in his bank to go to movies & shows...although since Covid he hasn't gone to any within the past year, but he is saving up to go to the Power Morphicon sometime next year if things are are getting better. We have to be very careful since his is high risk.
He collect $2 bills & says they are his Magic Money so he will never spend them, just collect.
He likes the Power Rangers, The Wiggles (Yellow is his favorite), Nintendo Switch, Cats, Gum, Popcorn, Books like Berenstein Bear or Little Critter.
Anything & everything makes him happy so just getting a plain card in the mail makes him smile.
You can address cards to Grayson Bowen at my regular address. Send me a message if you need it. Thanks!!
I have 3 rescue dogs.
Yodi is a 2yr old Yorkie mix. My son actually rescued him from the shelter, but he was too much for him to handle so we took him in. 3 separate people had adopted him before, but brought him back b/c they couldn't handle him. He is aloof, hard headed, & is one kooky little dog. He acts like the Tazmanian devil from Looney Tunes & has little hissy fits making all kinds of growling noises & spins if he doesn't get his way.
Bianca is a 8 yr old Doxie-Pin. She was from an animal hoarding situation & went to a couple of homes until she found us. She is terrified of everything...the leash, walks, baths, other people, anything that you have or hold that she doesn't recognize, etc.
My husband rescued a new dog that was going to be sent to the pound. Her name is Penny & she is a 2yr. old shepherd mix. She is really sweet, & friendly. Yodi loves her, but Bianca does not.
They are all loved, spoiled, & happy house dogs who get lots of love & treats :)

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 prefer hand drawn/painted ATC's. I also enjoy Collage ATC's that show good work and attention to detail and Mixed Media ATC's as well. If it's in your unique "style" then that's even better.
Besides my favorite animals & themes listed in my "likes/ wishlist" section above, I like...
Just because it's not listed here doesn't mean I don't like it or want it. I am open to any & all topics & themes.
I use a lot of tape because the postal machines that the mail goes through can be very hard on envelopes, so I don't want them to tear up my ATC's & swaps that I send out. I've worked very hard on them & want you to receive them in great shape. See HERE for an interesting article about why your mail is sometimes damaged.
You will probably need a pair of scissors handy when you open up my swaps.
I am 2 hours behind Swapbot time.
I swap USA only due to postage costs, wait times & reliability. I will however swap with Canada on an individual basis.
I am no longer allowing swappers that have participated in "ratings booster" swaps to make up for poor ratings in my groups & swaps b/c I think it is an unfair way to cheat the ratings system. I will make an exception only if it has been 1 year + since you joined one.
**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. No need to ask. Ideas are not property. We are all here to express our creativity & have fun, so inspiring others & sharing ideas is what Swapbot is all about.
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 ALWAYS send & I ALWAYS rate, so if you are missing a card, package or rating please let me know before giving me 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.
SMOKE STINKS! - I prefer not to swap with smokers unless you are very careful about keeping your items away from the smoke.
