I am 48, happily married and mother to an eighteen year old boy.
I am French Canadian so I can also write/swap in French.
I have been a phone repair clerk, teacher, post office worker, book buyer, floral designer assistant and flea market vendor. Currently, I am working at an agricultural consulting business. I love cats, the circus, Star Trek, books, Doctor Who and stamps. I am a Christian but tolerant of all views of the Creator/Creatrix as a loving being.
I love short handwritten letters, postcards and any other items that a life archivist might cherish.
November 2011 for the first time, I met one of my swap bot partners! That was an exciting day and a great stamp sale (if you're ever in Hamilton Ontario, I recommend it).
*Postcards *Stickers *Pretty stamps(see stamp section) *Stereoscope cards *Quotes *Recipes: I love chocolate, mint, gooey pecan desserts and the other food groups:recipes with chick peas, pork, bacon, pizzas.... *Anything cats *Maps *Bookmarks *Square Magnets *Book reviews *Buttons *Keys *photographs of doors *photographs in cemeteries *pingu *patterned socks *horses for two friends who collect them *any broken jewelry/watches *fortune cookie fortunes *anything North/South Dakota, esp. Fargo *anything New Mexico (even just information)
Most of my collections are sorted by themes. My stamp collection is sorted by themes rather than countries. For example, I have pages of cat stamps and of women of worth stamps.
My book collection contains a few themes that I love to read over and over again. I love books written by people with autism/aspergers like LOOK ME IN THE EYE. I love books about holocaust survivors since they celebrate the strength of the human spirit. I also have a selection of circus and animal biography books.
I would love my house to be decorated by themes. I have a Star Trek room already (Next Generation is my favourite followed by the original). Someday I would also like a circus room. I collect memorabilia from a local circus, the Conklin show but I would love items from other circuses...postcards, tickets, anything. I love Cirque du Soleil and just saw Totem. Didn't like it as much as Ovo but it was awesome and Ovo was beyond extraordinary.
*Scented items *Food/edibles *Dollar store items (stickers okay though)
Skittles is a black and white short haired five year old. His name suits him because he is very skittish (nervous). Skittles would eat himself to death if allowed. All he thinks about is kibbles.
Smokey is my rescued baby, found at a construction site across the street. He was four weeks old. He is grey and long-haired. He shows signs of being a little bit simple like when he forgets that he is hunting a fly or forgets where we are and starts crying.
New addition 2013: Vinnie!!! Vinnie is in the witness protection program for his connections with the mob but he still has mischievous criminal tendencies.
I usually prepare my swaps as soon as I sign up and have them ready before having partners. If the swap would benefit from looking at someone's profile, I adjust or start the swap after looking at my partner's profile.
I have resent a swap when for some reason it did not get there. So just let me know if there is a problem.
I am caught up on my rating so if you have not been rated, I have not received your swap yet.
You'll notice that I am inconsistent in joining swaps but that's because I don't join them unless I truly know I have enough time for them. In the summer I have less time because of camping.
I inherited my dad's stamps when he passed away in 2009. I didn't know much about stamps at the time and although I have learned some things, I am still fairly new at this hobby. I don't collect by country. The themes in my albums include: animals, pages of historical women, art, maps, any Winston Churchill, cartoons, astrology, seasons and keys on stamps...I think that's all but I might add a new theme tomorrow! -Added themes: world expo 1967 in Montreal Canada ( I don't collect any other expos). My son is collecting stamps with mustaches!!!
I love odd movies like Harold and Maude or The Gods Must be Crazy....I guess I'm an indie kind of gal. I also love Up and Finding Nemo. I cannot abide horror or needless suspense created by music. Don't get me wrong though, I enjoy most action movies, westerns and mysteries. I would also like to explore more of the classics. My favourite classic is Charades. I also love movies with twists like Sixth Sense, The Village and The Book of Eli. Just saw Cowboys and Aliens and I loved it too!!!!
