Update: 5-22-20: I've recently been introduced to the "swap-bot police". LOL, Some random members who monitor how I rate my swaps and then inform many other members on swap-bot that I haven't rated how they think I should have....it's all, unfortunately, a bunch of horse pucky in my opinion. And to top off the ludicrous fussiness of it all, this was an electronic swap (where NOTHING was exchanged) and was supposed to be a swap that's encouraging towards new members. LOL!!!! This type of nosiness, gang mentality, exclusionary policing is what makes swap-bot unappealing to me. If you're a new member of this website there is so much negative rhetoric surrounding "newbies" that as a new member I asked myself, Why am I even here if they don't want me?! Then I decided I didn't really have time to read posts in the forums...:) This is my first introduction to cattiness, (where it's come to my doorstep) and some serious drama/nitpicking. So, for that reason I'll be giving swap-bot a break for a while and contributing my energy towards groups of people that are less of a headache. The sun is out and the mountains are calling. ✌
IF THERE'S POSTAGE DUE ON A SWAP, let me know. I'll reimburse you. I try to send out really stellar, mailable swaps but sometimes the post office is picky!
I love nature. To my core. I love being outside, getting dirty, gardening, bird watching, etc. I grew up on a small farm and am a hippy/hill-billy hybrid. I am eclectic and open-minded. I'm a wanna-be intellectual but most likely am never gonna be :) I have done things backward my whole life. I used to swim against the current and now I float in my kayak, going with the flow. I love my little boys; 5 yrs and 6 months and my husband more than anything. I close my eyes and exist in that thankful, joyous space as much as possible. I admit that I used to want to be a great many things to a great many people. I wanted recognition and to have a career and to be "successful". And now, all I want is to be with 3 people, to love them until my body gives way to wear and then to love them some more. I know, not exactly uggs and a vanilla frap and leggings, but still, extremely basic. And that's okay.

I have discovered that I like strange and unusual postcards! Nothing will offend me I assure you. I've come to value having a few funny and offensive postcards that I've picked up on trips because I have so much cute stuff and not a lot of 'different' stuff. Cute is good, don't get me wrong. But I also value obscure, odd, ugly or just plain ol' wtf. Anything goes with postcards! I also enjoy stickers, doodles, and neat handwriting/lettering. I try hard with lettering, to make it look good and any inspiration I can receive is appreciated.
