Thanks for the prayers. We have all had the flu and have been sick. I am a little behind on my swaps BUT I will get them caught up and sent extras! I'm sorry! :)

I got a nice brochure about Ilya Rupin from someone in Russia Dasha. If this is you please PM me so I know what swap it's for and I can rate you! Thanks!

I always send my swaps!! Please PM me if you don't get something! I will always resend! Sometimes the mail gremlin eats things!

Feel free to combine shipping and recycle packaging! Save the world and money a little at a time!


I have an awesome postcrossing card from someone named Penny who has a dog named Amelia. I need to know what swap it was for so that I can rate you. I did join postcrossing! Thanks for the pointer!

I have a wonderful mystery card from Italy from a Claudie. No swap name. If you tell me who and for what swap I will rate you! THanks!

I go to the post office daily and rate within 24 hours of when I received things. I would love to say I am perfect, but I am NOT. So, if you see I have not rated something, please remind me. As of now everything I have received is rated.

MY two ONE ratings are from Jan and Feb of 2011- Over a year ago. I have contacted them numerous times and resent twice over the last year. They did not change the ratings and they are no longer on here so I can't fix them! Please know I am a great swapper and the reason I have those ones is because I broke my arm the end of last January and had to have emergency surgery. Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts.Also at the time, my netbook didn't like the glass of water my daughter shared with it. So I was off for several weeks until I got back online. We took a break for a few months and now I am back. My daughters asked me if we could do that fun mail thing again...so here I am. I am sorry! I will resend again if they will send me their addresses.

Books: Criminal Minds, James Patterson, Jeffrey Deaver, Janet Evanovich, & Sherilyn Kenyon. I like mysteries and vampire stuff. I also like gardening for flowers and herbs, as well as recycling and going green things. I love Steven Brust, Uncle John's Bathroom readers. Maxine is my hero! LOL! ALSO collect Rex Stout Nero Wolf mysteries. Have some duplicates available to swap. Occasionally I get a hold of Ellery Queen or other older mysteries in my search for Rex Stout books.

Music: Jimmy Buffet is my all time favorite! I also like Country and old rock n roll. I love Billy Joel, Led Zepplin, and woman country, i.e. Gretchen Wilson, & Shania Twain. I love Reba and Charlie Daniels. I also like Cheap Trick, Rush, Motley Crue, Adele, Joan Jett, Evanescence, and Melissa Etheridge. Have not mastered moving all my cds to digital. Any mixed music files would be loved. Also trying to keep up with the kids. Would love to get mixed CDs of anything but opera and screechy metal. Just not that mad anymore. LOL!

Movies: Phenomonen, Sweet Home Alabama, Tango n Cash, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, It's Complicated. Monty Python.

TV: Criminal minds, CSI (all), NCIS (both) & the Mentalist. I like Craig Ferguson and David Letterman. Love create on PBS and history detectives. Love Nature and animal planets shows. Rachel Ray, Oprah, Katie Brown Workshop, and Antiques Road Show are the best!l Would love to get full season dvds or any episodes of any of the above. Don't have cable, but dvds are nice when it rains and the kids are going stir crazy in the winter.


We now have 4 dogs, 4 cats, 2 hamsters, & 3 hermit crabs.

DOGS: Princess is a pure breed white spayed German Shepard whose previous owner went to jail for cutting and burning her tail. She's a rescue. She's about 14 yrs and weighs in at 119 lbs. She is mom's girl.

We also have 2 dogs that are about 7 lbs each. They are sisters named Simi and Lovebug. They are a little over a year old and so fun. Simi has a serious crush on her webkinz hamster toy. LOL. She grooms it and sleeps with it.

We have a new puppy name Fifi who is my dau Stasia's. She is 10 weeks and black and white. She is quite the lover. They said she was a maltese/terrier cross, but my guess is weiner dog/chihaua.

I do cat rescue and have 1 calico foster cat right now, her name is Spot. My permanent kitties are: Tiger (a black tabby 20 lb neutered male about 7 yrs). Blue ( A 15 lb Russian Blue neutered male about 11 yrs) Georgia a long haired Russian Blue girl that's 10 lbs and 2 years old Boots who's a female 6 month old black kitty with white feet

If you have any spare pet stuff, I would love to get Laxaire (fur ball medicine), frontline for cats or dogs, any collars( can always use), cat or dog toys, cat nip. I would also love seeds for growing grass for the kitties.

Blue has a foam fetish so nothing like foam cause he eats it and that leads to a vet trip.PLEASE NO FOAM STICKERS! LOL.

Favorite Crafts

Love all crafts. I like to draw, do ATCs, do projects with my 16 & 12 yr old twin girls. Really getting into doing ATCs. So supplies would be great. Especially embellishments and printed paper. Love cat print, zebra print, frog and monkey print material. Just getting into inches also. Like to sew and crochet. Just need more time. LOL


I love all PCs - I love cat postcards and all map ones.I am not to fond of black and white and art cards, unless they have cats, zebras, monkeys and frogs. I collect map pcs and state capitol pcs. I prefer my cards written on and naked. However, feel free to follow what the swap calls for since we all need new blank ones. I like touristy ones with one view and state and/or city names on them. I like interesting pic of state parks. I am also interested in doing swaps for blank pcs! Also am starting to like handmade pcs. I do not mind Zazzle or handmade ones, provide they are done with care.

Dislike: *ALLERGIC to PEANUTS. *Please do not send candy that is not packaged or Candy packed with anything with peanuts or sadly I will have to throw it away:( *Stupid comedies *most cartoon tv shows, but do have a 16 yr old and two 12 yr olds -so someone will appreciate it! *HATE DIET STUFF. *Sitcoms, *judgmental people *ultra conservatives. *People who don't follow thru. *Can't handle anything flowery smelling. *Nothing smelling of smoke please. Am allergic and have an asthmatic daughter. *Do NOT like snakes, reptiles or bugs. (but Toni loves them so no worries.) *Hate mornings. * I hate horror movies but my 16 yr old loves them

I will NOT flake. Hearts are subjective. I appreciate the thought that goes into swaps. If I feel you have put thought into it, you will get a heart, with or without extras. When I send extras, it's usually because something in your profile has spoke to me! Enjoy! Please talk to me about any issues. I live in a very small town so the mail is kinda slow sometimes.


Toni is 12. She is a girly girl who wants to be a vet when she grows up. Her favorite color is green. She loves lip gloss, jewelry, purses, baby dolls, butterflies, all animals, coloring, art, painting, FROGS and temporary tattoos. She LOVES frogs, most animals and dolphins. She likes Animal Ark books. Toni likes all girl things really! She likes hair stuff and they all like finger nail polish.

Tori is Toni's twin. She is also 12 now. LOL Her favorite color is blue or purple. She loves tv and computer time. She loves Scooby Doo, Twilight and Monster High. She is really into ghost stories and vampires. She loves fairies and littlest pet shop stuff. She also likes lip stuff, hair stuff, jewelry, purses, reading, coloring, art, temp tattoos, and MONKEYS.

They all like crafts and stickers. They all seem to prefer bright colors over pastels. They both have pierced ears, as do I. All the girls love CANDY, especially sour candy. They ALL love hair stuff, fingernail polish and fake nails or little stuff to put on their nails.

My 16 yr old loves PEACE SIGNS and Zebra print, pink, purple, and any neon color. She's not really into reading, though I am trying still. She loves animals, socks and babies.
