Rating/Swaps/Contact

I am taking a little break for awhile from swap bot I have way to many things on my plate right now.
I do a lot of postcards swaps. I am in several groups. I love to get and give cards. If you receive a card from me that I have already sent you before in another swap please let me know because I will re-send another card so that you are happy. If you have received a duplicate it is only a coincidence. Thank you

I love to swap. I will always send and rate. I have never flaked on a swap. If you have not received a swap from me please contact me and I will gladly resend. Swap bot for me is a fun way to relax and enjoy things. I love giving and don't want to have unhappy partners if the mail system looses something.

I also try to recycle as much as I can so you may get packages that have been used a few times.

I am easy to please and if I receive something that I do not like or cannot use I will find it another happy home.

Postcards

I love getting and giving postcards. I am seriously addicted.
I collect only those that are sent to me naked and written on. The rest goes in my stash and I use them to send to others.

Favorites/wishlist-nature, animals, water themed, fish, trees, unusual, flowers-especially daisies and wildflowers, butterflies. Vintage and vintage re-makes. Funny, weird. Homemade. If you have a postcard that you think nobody would like send it my way because I will most likely love it for my collection.

About Me

I am 56 now. With age comes wisdom, experience and knowledge. At least I keep telling myself that. LOL

I am a nurse by profession. Although now retired from nursing due to illness. Currently I am working 2 part time jobs. One as a librarian at the our local library. I love it. Another one is a weekend manager at our local movie theater.

I am married to my high school sweetheart and have 3 grown children(all boys) and a grown foster girl. I have grandchildren and love being a grandma.

I am really organized and structured, probably a weakness. My husband says I over do it sometimes. I say you can never be to prepared. LOL Or maybe it's a little OCD, lol. You never know. I am very frugal. I like to try and use things over and over and have a hard time throwing things away if I think I can still get use out of them. That said there are many things that I just clean up and throw away to get rid of them. Maybe I am wishy washy. LOL

I enjoy life. I love humor.

The last few years both my husband and myself have suffered from some medical conditions so some days I am just glad I am alive and able to get through the day. Some days are not so easy to get through. I tell myself I have to take it one day at a time.

I am not a girlie girl sort, but also not a tom boy. Just kinda in the middle.

I love to watch and learn about anything. Knowledge is what we have to soar through life. Plus I always say it's good to learn something new everyday.

I belong to several local groups and do a lot of community service. I truly love serving others and volunteer for way to many things.

Likes/loves

My favorite color is blue. I love the color yellow and white with it also. I also love earth tones.

I love Reeses' Peanut Butter cups they are soooooo good. Some days I could kill for one. Okay maybe not kill but seriously injury. LOL

I love anything nurse related or themed and have a little shelf with all my nurse themed items.

I love birds. I have several bird feeders and will watch them for hours. I have redecorated my bedroom in greens, yellows and bird themed items. I really love Peacocks.

Trees, pine cones and rocks. I love trees.

I like rustic, antique and vintage things.

I have two dogs both Australian Sheppard's. Badger-the boy, Dreamer the girl.
I have one cat, Lexie.

I love to cook and can my own foods. I like to garden and grow my own veggies. I never use cook books or recipe cards. My grandma taught me to cook by taste. I can usually go somewhere to eat and come home and make the dish just by eating it and figuring out what is in it.

I like puzzle books, especially the variety puzzles.

I love clocks and hope to someday have a huge collection of them.(a tradition from my grandfather and father)

I inherited a spoon collect of my mom's and hope to continue collecting spoons in her honor. Any spoon you send would be loved a lot. Spoons are special to me because of a story about them and Lupus.

I love wind chimes. I had my husband add a few more hooks to the porch so now there is lots more noise on the porch. lol He will for sure go crazy with the noise.

Love butterflies, fire flies, ladybugs, hummingbirds, dragonflies.

I love notecards, stationery and postcards.

Spring and fall are my favorite time of the year.

Illiness

I have disease called overlapping Lupus and there is a story of spoons, which helps others to understand the disease better. I love the color purple and butterflies since they are the National symbols for Lupus. Anything with them on it would also be loved a lot.

My husband is oxygen dependent and disabled due to heart problems. We truly are a pair. lol

Favorite Books

I will always try to read whatever I can. I will pretty much read anything. Books are books and in them we find wonderful stories and places that can take us anywhere.

Dr. Suess is the best ever author. I love the Grinch the best. I keep a collection of Grinch items always. You can never have to many. LOL I have a lot of Dr. Seuss books for the grandkids. They love reading them and so do I.

Since I love to read I also love bookmarkers to have in all my books. I have a tradition where I get a book to read and then I go through my bookmarkers to fit the right one for that book. LOL what a goofball I am.

Crafts

What can I say here. I am fairly creative and try my hand at most crafts. I have done quilting, cross stitching, jewelery making. I also have done some ATC's, inchies and a little matchbox's. I am learning about altered journaling which I really like.. I am doing some card making and paper crafts. I really like to try my hand at anything.
I have been doing some Zentangles. Very addicting.

Any craft making supplies are always greatly appreciated.

Pen palling

I do enjoy a good pen pal and have slowed down on my pen pals of late. If you are interested in being a pen pal send me a message.
