About Me

Update: Things are better now after Alexandria's death and my auto accident. I hope to keep Mark and I as healthy as possible through this virus crisis. Be safe everyone!!

Unfortunately I have been in an auto accident in end of January so I am slow to recover. I will send my swaps out on time, No worries. But I may not sign up for many.

Please continue to be patient with me. Alexandria's 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, 2019 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.

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 a 67 years young. Mom of 3 and grand-mom to 8 They keep me busy and happy. I am married to Mark for 19 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 pen pal 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.

I have a red kitchen with apples. Very retro. 1950s

I LOVE make up, lotions, pamper items!!

Primitive decorating. Americana items. I lOVE Mary E-Suzy Zoo-Bath n Body.

Yankee candle tarts and votive- please no rose scented items.
Love small picture frames you'd find at Michaels, Hobby Lobby. Primitive and country decorating. Teddy bears both stuffed and figurines. Hello Kitty items, too. Wolves and snowmen.

Living-room is Americana and red. white and blue. Unless its holiday time then its whatever holiday we are at.

Bathroom purple and green, bedroom red and ivory. In my bedroom I have a pretty Martha Stewart patchwork quilt set. Its called Farmhouse patchwork. Has red and cream colors. Love frilly items for my bedroom. It's very feminine. Love a nice flea market fine or thrift store.

DISLIKES/do not send items

To make it easier to send swaps and wishes my way I have added things I can’t use or do not need. 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. Plz don’t send cheep candles, they get my asthma acting up badly. No dollar store candles.
We do not have bathtub. Just roll in shower for my husbands wheelchair. I have no use for used postage stamps either.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME TEA BAGS OR COFFEE. I DO NOT DRINK EITHER ONE Plz do not send coloring pages or any that needs to be colored due to nerve damage in my hands I can’t use these. Or sew so plz no fabric. I don’t use a planner, plz no planner supplies.

Friendship Books, Label Baggies, Xslips sticker books I do not do, sorry plz do not send them my way. No jewelry because of allergies.

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.

Love to receive.....WISH LIST

About Me

I am NOT offended by receiving CHRISTIAN religious items. I like to send little CHRISTIAN pass it cards with my swaps, to encourage the receiver. I find the CHRISTIAN swaps are such a blessing, because you don't have to worry about offending anyone.It's truly a blessing. Sometimes you just need to receive something that reminds you that God is in control and I don't have to worry. I always need to be reminded of that!♥♥ I know each is entitled to their own opinion, and I respect that. It just amazes me to read a profile and see how many people do not want any religious items. Oh well..... I am not one of those people. I love the LORD and am not offended by receiving CHRISTIAN religious items.

Hey Patti. I just now got back on here after I lost my mom March 07, 2018. Then March 05, 2019 lost a friend. Now, March 01, 2020 my father lost his brother. I see you have sadly lost your granddaughter March 04, 2019. I had not been on here in about two years. I had missed swapping with you. I hope that you are doing better. You are in my prayers. I am very sorry to hear of your loss and about your car accident. As you know I was a passenger in one in 2015 and 2017 and still recovering and in physical therapy weekly. It seems you have had a rough patch just like myself. If you get a chance send me your address I want to send you something to cheer you up.

Hi Patti!

Wishing you a Valentine's day filled with love, happiness and chocolate.

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”

—Mark Twain

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne

Thank you Patti for the lovely Christmas Card.. We just had our family Christmas Today, and all have left except our middle Son Adam who has to drive back to Columbus Ohio tonight for a meeting at Work tomorrow. ( as of 6:25 pm he is still here. Its about a 3 1/2 hr drive back south down to Columbus). We will have the 2 grandsons here with us.
