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 3 grandchildren.
I picked my screen name because it is work related and a nick name from way back. I was stationed at "the north end facility". I felt the need to explain because a Northqueen could be considered as an ultimate queen of darkness (as some beliefs would have it) and was not aware of that until recently. We also have a guy at the southern end and we have joked and called him king of the South.
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.
I have been flaked on once in a Mojo robin and that was it. I recommend never doing a robin swap.
I also was recently really screwed by MysticBayou. :(

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.
Lavender smell-in the USA it is a common bathroom spray to cover the crap smell(or mix with it so it seems) -yucky combination! It is an associative thing for me I guess.
Cutsie/kiddie characters like Kawaii or Hello Kitty or Disney.
*food or drink items-I like to buy my own and can't see paying postage to mail what I can get locally, thanks.
I have two favorite colors: champagne and orange, but I really like color combinations like:
dark brown & tan combined with any pastel
black & gray combined with a vibrant basic color
cream with shiny gold
country color combinations
fall color combinations
K-cups any brand of coffee, decaf and half decaf, cider or Swiss Miss. I never liked the dark roast, but now find that it makes 2 cups instead of one so that is okay too.
