About Me

Please continue to be patient with me. Alexandrias untimely death and all the things we have to do to settle her affairs and estate has taken so much of my time. Each trip I go there and help is a 2 hour travel trip.

I am doing my best, Rest assured if you haven't received and you let me know I will make it right.

Please be patient with me. March 4 I lost my granddaughter. Alexandria Nicole was 22 and the light of my life. She will be missed so much. I am struggling to get through life right now. I will never understand why she took her own life when she had so much to live for.


First and very important.... Please let me know if you don't receive my items as I will resend. Please feel free to contact me if you ever have any issues with my swap. Thank you!

I am a wife of a Man with ALS. He has been sick for 15 years. If any reason for me rateing alittle late, plz accept my apologies. Sometimes life gets in my way. But I assure you, I send my swaps, I will rate swaps I receive.

Private ones are good, I swap anything from memo sheets, envie of paper goodies, stickers, bookmarks, homemade envies, candles/votive, kitchen towels, key chains, little quote plaques,frames and paper back books, fuzzy socks, and whatever else everyone loves. I also do private flat rate swaps with those who want to trade likes lists.

Hi Patti!

Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day!

Mother is an undying love, a love beyond compare, the one you take your troubles to, she is the one who really cares. You are all of this and more. So glad we’re moms, it’s one more sweet thing to share.

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne

Patti, my heart goes out to you and your family. Losing a child is never easy but suicude is the hardest loss. Keeping you and your family in my prayers. Rest assured that Alex is now at peace with our Lord.

I stumbled upon your profile the other day as I was signing up for the Mr. Zip group. I saw your update concerning the loss of your granddaughter. I wanted to leave a comment, but I was at a loss for words at that time. I'm still at a loss for words, but I wanted you to know that I have thought about you, your daughter, and granddaughter off and on for the past week. I have said prayers for you and your family during my commute back and forth to work. I use that time to pray a lot! I'm thinking about you all. I'm so very sorry.
