March 6, 2016 ~ Hello everyone - I am on vacation and have not been home much to log my received swaps but am trying to catch up - will try to get them all logged in today but if not, I will when I get home from vacation March 12th. Until then - happy swapping and thanks for understanding! grin
April 16, 2015 ~ My one year anniversary on Swap-bot and I am very glad to have come across this site. I have met some wonderful people here and had some great swap opportunities. I have learned it's not an exact science and you may get flaked on or not get exactly what the swap entailed, but if you stick it out, the amazing swappers out there (and you know who you are!) will make up for the not-so-great.
April 1, 2015 ~ I almost drown while swimming in the ocean and thankfully a lifeguard rescued me and was able to safely bring me back to shore. I know it may sound trite or silly, but I am forever thankful to "Bob" the lifeguard who risked my life to ensure I would still have mine. I thought about my husband, our cats and my job as I was tossed around in the sea, and thought I only had 2 more breaths left in me... thank you Bob for being there at the beach, doing the job you do!
Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to swapping with you!
I love all sorts of music, but not rap nor country. Just a few of my favorites are: Harry Connick Jr, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, The Beatles, Michael Buble, Janis Joplin, 80's music, Tori Amos, Soundtracks, Broadway Musicals, Melissa Etheridge, Classical, Big Band, 40's Swing, and so many more (will add as I remember more of them!).
I love to read although I must confess I don't have the time to read as much as I would like. I collect books (my husband and I own thousands of books!) - especially dictionaries (in all languages), poetry, Shakespeare, Memoires of a Geisha, The Red Tent, Da Vinci Code, traveling (especially to other countries) and countless others (I will continue to add as I read more!).
I was a teenager in the 80's so I enjoyed many of those films. I also love the Back to the Future series (I have always adored Michael J. Fox and used to have HUNDREDS of magazine photos of him on my bedroom walls!), romantic comedies such as Princess Bride, Star Wars series, Love Actually, Nottinghill, Singing in the Rain, Sound of Music, Amelie (all time favorite film, actually!), Fur, Garden State, City of Angels, Michael, What Dreams May Come, Red Dragon, Pirates of the Caribbean series, Sherlock Holmes and many many more!
I don't really watch TV, although thanks to my husband, I've been introduced to some TV shows on Netflix. I've really enjoyed Orange is the New Black, Orphan Black, Mr. Selfridge, The Americans, Sherlock Holmes, American Horror Story, Homeland and more when I learn about new, great shows!
I make my own greeting cards and have done so since I was a child (now I'm in my 40's!) and I also enjoy making bookmarks (due to my collection of books!) and postcards. I have recently gotten into the ATC, so I'm still a newbie, but hope to learn more as I explore this paper craft.
I have collected stickers and traded (and sold them to!) with friends since 1982, so I would say I love stickers and own thousands and thousands of them - I can't stop buying them I adore them so much!
I started out an avid postcrosser as I love learning about other countries and cultures, but now that I have found swap-bot, I must confess I am not on there as often. grin Pretty much any postcard you send will be great: it's about what you write, your handwriting and the postage stamps that honestly make my day!
I collect and play board games - I have well over 100 in my "game closet" and love to play cards, trivia games, Blokus, Risk and Scrabble is my favorite game!
I love to attend Renaissance and Pirate Faires (and dress up as I have a closet FULL of costumes!).
I throw costume parties and Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday; I go "all out" when decorating the house and yards for the holiday.
I enjoy hiking, camping and being out-of-doors.
I love photography and have been taking pictures since I gained a 110 camera in the 1980's.
I am a Geocacher and have been doing this fun hobby for 10 years and that is how I met my husband, who I married in 2012.
My husband and I knew we would marry after less than a month of dating. We are both "hopeless romantics" and love leaving each other notes of love and buying little surprise "gifts" from the $1.00 store and such. We have 4 cats and sadly Sept. 12, 2014 my 17 year old cat, Groucho Kitty, went to kitty heaven. I work at a local animal shelter, where my husband volunteers to help with the cats and kittens and we love to foster the tiny baby kitties until they are old enough to be adopted. My husband works with computers and I recently introduced him to postcrossing which we enjoy doing together. I'm very lucky to have found my soulmate, even if it did take me until I was 40 years old. grin
I hope to trade items with wonderful people on this site and am hoping it gets me back into my crafting, which I love to do and what makes me the happiest (other than the love of my life and our house full of kitties!).
I have been to Paris, France, twice, and dream of living there, so anything French is wonderful with me!
