About Me

Please when sending me a swap use my first and last name, not my swap-bot name. Please don't mark the name of the swap on the outside. If you post my swap please do not include my name online with it. Thanks!

***If you have not received a swap from me, please contact me first. I always send my swaps.****

*Under a lot of stress at the present time some of my swaps have gone out late. I will be taking a step back once everything is completed just to get my head together and regroup. I will still post swaps and have a good group of people hosting swaps as well. If you are in a group and would like to host a swap, please let me know what you would like to host and your time frame of when. Thanks!______________________________________

There are things here at swap-bot that fascinate me and I have tried my hand at postcard making and love it, though I'm not all that good at drawing, but I find other ways.

I love trying new crafts so bear with me if I send you a "new" craft I have tried, its all so much fun trying new things!

I am fascinated with stories of ghosts, the paranormal, mediums. I also love old historic buildings/homes, abandoned buildings and homes, architecture in general. I love old sanitariums, old mills, anything old with a history attached to it and perhaps a spirit or two. Love, love old cemeteries!!!!

Thank you so, so much for such a lovely "make up" for the Letter...Card...Cup of Cheer swap. Everything was brilliant. I truly appreciate you doing this. xoxoxo

Hi There I am your partner for the swap Comment on your Partners Profile from the group Dis and Dat Canada. I hope you have been able to survive well enough this horrible winter that we have been having. I can hardly wait for the spring weather and even better Summer and we can all go to Dairy Queen and eat blizzards! As a fellow Osmonds fan I have to share with you my Donny Osmond story. My sister bought me a ticket to go with her to see Donny and Marie perform their Christmas Special last November. We were in isle seats and stood up when we heard screams coming from the back of the theater. It was Donny Osmond coming down the isle and he came right over to me and hugged me. I felt so stupid because I said I LOVE YOU but I mean who can beat that hugging Donny Osmond. I told my sister it was the best Christmas gift she ever gave me!
