About Me

NOTIFICATION NOTE FEB 15, 2012 - I still am not been regularly receiving swap-bot message or profile post notifications via email for a couple of weeks. I have repeatedly confirmed my settings are correct. If you message me and do not get a reply in 24/48 hours and need to contact me, please contact me through my website. It does notify me consistently.

PACKAGING NOTE JULY 14 - I recently learned that shipping in envelopes can sometimes result in torn up goods. I am now wrapping all envelopes in clear shipping tape. I apologize in advance for the difficulty in opening your item. It's so stinkin' exciting to get real mail, it's a shame not to be able to tear into it!

+++ I am a housewife, homeschooling mother, and homemaker with an appreciation for sending and receiving mail that is lovely. With a regular routine of sending notes and cards for no reason, I am ready to swap with reason!

I HAVE DISCOVERED that there are some incredibly slefish and greedy and ungrateful people who want to swap only for the purpose of receiving. I do not understand this. However, I do my best to accomodate everyone. Just write me and tell me your grievance rather than shooting off a negative rating. I am grateful and hope to share my gratitude if you are lacking...

Favorite Music

I like pretty much any and every kind of music. Seriously. The only kind of music I don't care for at all is music in any genre that is about death. Including hymns, metal, punk, rap, etc. If it's about killing someone, I'd rather not listen. Everything else is good, though!

Favorite Books

I don't get the opportunity to read much of late but I do mkae time for my Bible each day so I enjoy devotionals that are brief. When I do read I often read books about knitting, sewing or gardening. If it's fiction, I typically choose books by their dust jacket art and those typically end up to Chick Lit.

Favorite Movies

Not a big movie fan. I don't have the attention span nor the ability to sit still that long. And not sleep. If I do watch a movie, like music, I'm going for the happy stuff...

Favorite Television

see movies above.

Favorite Crafts

I am a knitter (sort of crocheter), scrapbooker, sew-er (not a seamstress), cross-stitcher, ATCer, zentangler, funky crafter. I am very easy to please as long as the goal is light-hearted.


I like all colors. The more color, the better. And dark works here. Unlike in movies, TV, and music...


homeschool, horses, nature, mary engelbreit, mushrooms/toadstools, nature fairies, waldorf-y type themes, fiestaware, whimsical, eclectic, easy, bold, children, culinary, trees.

Comment: You never sent me anything for this swap and I feel I've given you plenty of time. I should have rated long ago but I held out hope that you'd do the right thing and send what you committed to.
