About Me

If anyone does not rec. my swaps PLEASE pm me because I always do what I say I am going to do and have been that way long before SB so something must have went wrong.

I have 3 sons, 3 daughters, and 6 grandchildren.

Please know that I re-use bubble envelopes, because I hate filling up the land fills with plastic and can't see throwing them out until they are no good any more. I make sure that other's addresses are removed or destroyed before reusing them.

I love getting up early and listening to the birds sing, and getting a jump start on daily chores. Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather, the turning of leaves, getting ready to huddle in for a cozy winter and the holidays that it brings. Riding a bike or taking a walk at the crack of dawn on a Fall day and returning home to the aroma of fresh brewed coffee is one of my life's pleasures. The smell of sheets after they have dried outside, and hearing the ocean waves break and the buoy sounding off on summer evenings brings me joy. I really appreciate the little things in life. I appreciate another who has a good sense of humor.

Please be advised if you FLAKE in one of my hosted swaps or do not keep in communication with your partner as to what is going on, I will make it known. We all have problems in life, and that is understandable, however, please let me know, and your partner if something is wrong. It is only fair to your partner to communicate.

Fighting on the forums!!!! It is a waste of the precious moments of your life.

thought I'd drop by to see if you ever did manage to find any of those colour change postcards you wanted a while back....I've not found any but still keeping my eyes peeled for you.

northqueen on Nov 11, 2012:

Thank-you for your thoughts and offer. We made out pretty well here being at the bottom of the hurricane's eye. North of it got hammered. I have been careful in not signing up for too many swaps when I knew the hurricane was coming and then the nor'easter. :( I am now in the middle of relocating my craft room to a larger room and only have one swap to complete until I get moved. I have too much stuff. lol
