About Me

Hello: Swap Bot friends, I live on the south end of Vancouver Island BC Canada. "My Etsy Store" above is my wish-list...

Updated Postcard info: The absolute worst mail delivery service seems to be between Canada and the United States !!!

I find the amount of non-raters is a continual thorn in my side and I am quite discouraged with Swap Bot. I have recently joined Postcrossing and I look forward to not having to track others down for a simple rating. Thank you to those who take the time and are considerate enough to rate. You are the best!!!

For POSTCARD SWAPS : please send naked(stamped&posted)... ...Please put the date on the PC... If you dont put the swap name on: I cannot rate you!

NON-RATERS: Please just give a rating already... "The rating system is meant to help keep people honest and fair with their swaps.

Comment: Thank you for the colourful animal children's illustration by Brian Wildsmith. I googled to see more of his illustrations. I really like the image of a child swinging from a very colourful tree, from the book A Child's Garden of Verses. So I put it in my comments section on my profile. :) Addendum: I forgot to mention the children's postage stamps. Nice touch.
Response: Hi Rome thank you for the rating with heart. I'm happy you like the illustration. I sent you another at the same time...isn't the mail system funny?

Comment: Most interesting bee theme postcard. I had a look at the websites for A Cagey Bee and ruthmarsh.ca. Beautiful sites. The Ruth Marsh bee art is both beautiful and disturbing. A strange steampunk feel to her frankenbees. Thanks for a very arty postcard experience. Loved it.

Comment: Another great nannydino card. Thanks for the Guardians of the Secrets of the Universe postcard. And as always, I really like the back, there's always something interesting to see and read. I love the sticker of the little girl in the stripes. Is she you? AND by weird coincidence, I just made a Gerard Dubois (from National Geographic) cut n paste postcard. You used a Gerard Dubois stamp on the back of your card. If I get you for a cut n paste swap I have to remember to send my postcard to you.
Response: Hi Rome thank you for the rating with heart. That is a very strange coincidence re: Gerard Dubois. I love the cut n paste swaps. Thank you for hosting them. Have a lovely day Rome peace love light

You just made me cry in the most wonderful possible way. I don’t know if you knew it or not, but Cat’s Cradle is one of my favorite Vonnegut books. Your postcards meant a lot to me. Thank you!
