About Me

Update: Thank you to all my swap-bot friends who reached out to me for Mark's death. Each card and note helped me get through this time. I love you all.

Still struggling but a little better. I'm packing daily to be ready when the house closing comes around. I hope to move in October. Please be patient with me. I'll be bacl as soon as possible.

I am taking a small break from swapping only to pack my home and move closer to my family. My purchase offer has been accepted so now to pack my home. Plz be patient if I need to rate. I’ll keep looking through messages to answer questions. Thank you so much. Can’t wait to come back!!

Update: I had to get ready to make a big change that Mark and I always talked about. Moving closer to my kids and 7 + grandkids. So I found a hose and just heard I have been accepted. I am excited and sad all at once!! But they are one hour away and that sure adds miles on a car. !!! So I wil be moving and will continue to swap, I sure need this activity in y life!!♥♥♥

Marks funeral was yesterday. Very tiring and complicated!! Plz give me time to rate. I'm trying hard. Just so much to do......very upsetting life right now. 20 years on Sept 16th this year. We almost made it.

Update: yesterday my husband passed away. He fought a long 15 yr battle with ALS. He was amazing and loved beyond words. I need time away. I’ll finish swaps that are ready and then take some time off. I had deleted swaps I was doing that we’re not ready yet. I’m sorry.

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!!.

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.

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!! BUT no dollar store items in pampering, please.

Primitive decorating. Americana items. I lOVE Mary E-Suzy Zoo- Hello Kitty-

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 am a diabetic so no candy please.

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.
