Update. May 14
Have been absent a few days from SB due to sickness. Stomach virus ran through my family like a plague, some nasty stuff. Anyway, I'm back and getting back to my swaps
I am starting to collect Mail Art. I'd like to make a journal out of received mail art. If you'd like to add a little something to the envies you send me, it'd be much appreciated. Something being a hand drawn pucture. Or decoupage
Here is the journal I'd like to do This is Stargazers journal and it's made with ALL mail art. So cool :)
Updated Profile November 26 ,2012
I take my swapping very seriously. I love swapping,and enjoy putting my heart and soul into it. I do send extras at times,but it isn"t for a heart,it is because I have something extra that my partner will love. I enjoy making people smile.. Hearts are fringed benefits =D
If for any reason you do not get a swap or tag from me,just pm me and ask me about it before rating me a one.. This is just swap bot friendliness.. I would do the same thing!! I promise to rate when I get a swap from you. May take me a couple of days while I go through it and relish every item,but I WILL rate you!!
A little info
I do have an eye disease that causes me to not see so well... ( Iritis)Totally blind in left eye and only about 50% vision in right one. It's blurry but I do what I can . The best way to explain this, ? Put a piece of Saran Wrap over your eyes, open them and try to look out of it. Or , as a dear friend told me, Vaseline smeared on a mirror or window..
I don't let my eye sight stop me. I put forth effort in my swaps. Swap bot has inspired me to try harder at challenging things, and I'm very grateful !
I went through a bout of depression first part of the year, and Swap-Bot and my buddies here, helped me through a very tough time.
THAT BEING SAID...
Hello Swap-botters- my name is Vicky & I am a forty something year old mom of 5,Mimi of 2 Grandsons , Easton Riley and James Michael. A grand daughter on the way ( in April) her name will be Alyssa Ann.. A wife of the best hubby in the world. Hsnds down. He is sonpatient with me and supports me in my crafting. Gotta love a man that goes into stores and buys craft supplies without having to ask what I need !!! Love that .... Totally ...
My crafts have taken me all over the place. I'm a very random person, and it tends to bleed into my crafting. Lol One week I'll be into Collaged PC's and this week , nothing but journals .
I have a craft room. Actually two. And the dining room table. And the bar . Sometimes even the table in the living room. This is a very crafty house. Crafts every where. One day, I intended to corrall it all into one room. One day. In the very far off future:) I'm thankful my family is so understanding .
July of 2011, we moved to the tiny community of Kilmichael. There is MAYBE 800 people around here. Very nice community, . Old money. Farmland. Interesting place to live, though.
We love the slower side of life . We enjoy having friends over on Friday or Saturday nights, grilling/bbq'ing and sipping ice tea or in a rare occasion when our BFFs don't have any kids , we will sip on Strawberry Daquries or Puna Colladas .
My Hubbs, Don , and I enjoy sitting on the patio, watching the occasional car roll by, they'll blow the horn and wave, we wave back, half the time not knowing the person . Small town life . gotta love it
Yes it has it's ups n downs.
No shopping . At all.
We have a Cracker Box for a PO . Mrs Crowder, cranky ole lady running it, has her own hours!!! And no one crosses her about it. Lol
We have a dollar general that needs a bulldozer to it. Period.
A pharmacist .
A specialty shop called OhhhLaLa. That's really exspencive :/
A couple of churches.
A library. One convenient store called Kountry Kirner, maybe 100 yards from my house.
And Greenlees Shop Rite.
Oh . High school and Ele. School as well as a Hospital. Tiny. Has 10 rooms:)
Our neighbors are not so close together that you can touch them,, as far as houses go, but pretty spaced apart.
What I love most is the fact that we all share . Whatever I bake or Rachael bakes, we share with them. In return, we get veggies out of gardens. Fresh cut flowers. Fruits. Sweets . The list goes on.
Oh, yeah. Mr Toby. That little 80 year old man is a character. Lives across the street. Grows everything he eats. And he drinks so bad, but he is funny to talk to while he is drunk, which is 90% of the time. He watches out for Rae and myself. When Don is gone at night ( truck driver) Mr T will come over to check on us make sure ' his girls' are ok. So sweet.
A very nice community that I'm glad to be a part of.

I'm always up for a private swap

Music. Where do I start? I really do enjoy different types of music. At times, I am into stuff like Journey, Jefferson Star-ship, REO Speedwagon, Kool and the Gang, Madonna, Paula Abdul and other times, I am dancing around listening to Lil Wayne, Lady GaGa and Adam Lambert.
Then there are times when I am in the mood for some good ole Country music. John Michael Montgomery, George Strait, Rascal Flats and Carrie Underwood are some of my favorite.
Oh Yeah.. Speaking of Adam Lambert, I am IN love with his voice. Adore him. Crazy for a 43 year old, I know. My hubbs thinks I am crazy as well, so, it really does not matter.
I would LOVE to get (copies) CD's of your fave music. Or receive CD's that you no longer want. I love music and would love to listen to music/songs from other countries. So, please, send them on.
Music soothes my soul and puts me in better spirits. I love the rare moments I get, when Don makes the kids leave and he cleans the tub out and fills it with hot, bubbly water, sits my candles around and has my fave soft music playing. Amazing what it can do for a gal...
I prefer music over TV
Due to eye disease , I can no longer read books Sad face. I have been buying them in my iBook or buying the Audio CDs. So please, do not send me books unless on CD. Thanks so much
I would love to have books on CD's.. So if you have any you are tired of or can copy, please let me know.. I would love ya for it=D These eyes are getting to where reading is hard on them=(
I love to read!!! I come from a long line of book lovers. As a kid, Nancy Drew was my all time favorite. I also liked Trixie Beldon and also The Bobbsey Twins. You could find me on cold winter days in front of the fireplace in my dads big easy chair, curled up ,reading these books. On Summer days, I would be under the big old oak tree out back, sipping soda and reading. I loved it then, and still love it to this day..
I have a taste for mysteries, Thrilling Mysteries. True Crime also gets me. I can get lost in an Ann Rule book.. She is an amazing writer.
Mary Higgins Clark is my all time fave,though. I want all of her books. So if you come across any,please let me know and we can do a private swap. (Used is FINE)
I have read all of Nicholas Sparks books. Thanks to some awesome ladies here on Swap Bot, I have the whole collection now and have even re~read several. Thank You Ladies..
My passion is for 19th Century Romance. Oh my goodness, how the Pioneers intrigue me!! Seriously. I have so many books about Mil Order BRIDES and Love found on the Oregon Trail.. Swoon.... Just love them. I will swap with the ones you do not want.
Books. Who can live without them?? Who really wants to?? They take you to places, where in real life you would never get to go.
We watch lot of movies. Lots. Although we do not have a rental store, we do have a Red Box at "the worlds most dreadful wal mart'. Often, we find a good movie or 2. Mostly we get from Netflix.
We also have a vast assortment of DVDs we have collected. Currently, we have almost 100. Yes, we watch them over and over.
