Sent Mishaps

I'm currently working on the rated "1" project. And I goofed and was late. Really late, yes! I've been informed though that these two, rated "3" swaps have been welcomed. Yay! I had been worried about that.

About Me

Hey! Thanks for viewing my profile! My name's Joy. I currently reside in Providence, Rhode Island. But I lived in Massachusetts most of my life. All around Boston, the suburbs were home to me. Mainly Lexington but also the seaport towns of Gloucester and Beverly. (As well as more inland places such as Winchester and Woburn.) If Magnolia was on the list though, I'd probably still be there. One of my favorite cities that I've called my own is San Jose, California. I was there when I was 17 and had my 18th birthday. I moved out there to work. I tutored the younger students at an elementary school. I terribly miss the Green Mountains of Vermont though. I'd move back there in a heartbeat if I could!

My pen friends and swap buddies are very important to me, and I've been pen palling for years!  My friend at the time moved to another state when I was 8, so I wrote to her to try to keep our friendship. I didn't get a written reply but fell in love with correspondence! Another pal introduced me to swapping via friendship booklets and little gifts.

I color pictures that are very bright, abstract with lines and shapes, and full of color. The medium I use the most is Prismacolor pencils.

Growing up I attended a Protestant church, sometimes. I became a tad naughty after my parents split. Recently though, I've found my way back into the realm of Christianity. It gives me hope to believe that God loves me so much, he has a special spot in his bejeweled heavenly home where I'll live forever in pure, righteous bliss.

Swap Items

As well as making my day spectacular by getting in the mail any of the things listed here, I can swap them from my side too!

My List:

  • atcs
  • envelopes
  • stickers
  • bags of tea 
  • postcards
  • note cards
  • pen pal letters

Actually, I'm in need of quality address labels. Does anyone know of a good software program that I can design some, save and print out at the library?

Gabrielle rated for Christian Christmas cards on Dec 11, 2010
Comment: Thanks for the card and the lovely note. I love Christmas, too. We don't have a midnight service, though. Our Christmas Eve is a service of carols and scripture and concludes with lighting the candles in the darkened sanctuary. Last year our granddaughter, who was 4 at the time, couldn't stay awake, so I wound up holding her hand with the candle in it so she wouldn't drop it! It was so sweet -- she really wanted to be there, and she loved the music, but she pretty much missed the candle light part! Have a wonderful Christmas, and happy swapping in the new year.
Response: Thanks, and a lil lol @ your sweet granddaughter. :) I meant the Christmas Eve service that usually concludes @ midnight - the one you wrote of in this rating. Sorry I was unclear! You too have a merry, merry Christmas and joyous new year with each and every loved one!

I just received your mail for the "I Collect... Send to the Person Above You Tag!" I was so happy to get your mail :D Even the post stamps are incredbily cute, and I usually don't even pay attention to them! I really like everything you've sent but especially that you wrote on the postcards <3 Glad to know that your brother and I have something in common hehe We do have a small zoo nearby but to be honest I've never been there. It's been a while since I've been to one because I actually don't really like seeing animals in cages but we also have wildlife parks, and I enjoy going to them :D My favourite one so far were the deers in Nara, in Japan! I loved how they could walk around wherever they wanted to ^-^ My most favourite animal is probably the red panda tied with penguins. I gues I just like how fluffy and kind of smart they look and penguins look adorably clumsy to me :D Thank you so much for your thoughtful mail! Have a wonderful day!
