July 29, 2018



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.

I am a good swapper so if you are waiting on me for a swap, PLEASE private message me and let me know. I always send my swaps. I am very proud of my 5 rating!! But if you don't receive and don't tell me than I can't resend!!

I have been swapping and pen palling for almost 35 years. I also love to do private swaps. I love to send and receive a good swap. I am active in Yahoo groups and love to make new friends. I am a 65 young Mom of 3 and grand-mom to 8 They keep me busy and happy. I am married to Mark for 17 years. He is terminally ill with ALS, (Ice bucket challenge) but is going quite strong in his 15th year. But is 100% relies on me or his caregivers for all his needs. .Love to penpal and swap 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.

For pets swaps, I have a doggie! She is a Schnauzer named Lacy. She loves nice toys, USA snacks. Small size plz.

Favorite candle scents are flowers and cinnamon, esp apple. LOVE think dishtowels. Not crazy about dollar store ones, too thin!! I like woven ones in red stripes or plaid. I have a red kitchen. I dont use any other color, but I do save them for my daughters home, too. BUT I do use holiday ones that are really thick and fluffy like from Kohls on sale. I love car charms, and fancy key chains that you can find in Michaels. Lots of bling!!! I LOVE make up, lotions, pamper items!! Primitive decorating. Americana items. I would love to swap with anyone as a private swap, too. Especially people who enjoy things like Bath n body products, Homemade envies and cute memo sheets and pads.

DISLIKES/do not send items

To make it easier to send swaps and wishes my way I have changed my dislikes to just a few.

There are only a few items I wish not to receive. Here is the list..I don't like watermelon or lavender scents of anything.

Plz do not send any face masks, bath bombs or bubble bath. We do not have bathtub. Just roll in shower for my husbands wheelchair. Used postage stamps, PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME TEA BAGS OR COFFEE. I DO NOT DRINK EITHER ONE . Friendship Books, Label Baggies, Xslips sticker books I do not do, sorry plz do not send them my way. Please do not send me anything that may smell like smoke. Or lavender, I have asthma and it kicks it up really bad. It wont make it any better if you put in a dryer sheet, it doesn't work. I wish it did,sorry to say.
