About Me

I am a wife of a Man with ALS. He has been sick for 14 years. If any reason for me rating 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 64 young Mom of 3 and grand-mom to 8 They keep me busy and happy. I am married to Mark for 16 years. He is terminally ill with ALS, (Ice bucket challenge) but is going quite strong in his 14th 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.

Favorite Books

I love to read Nora Roberts, Catherine Caultier, Lee Child, James Patterson are some of the many favorite authors I read. Especially the FBI series of Catherine Caultier. I also have kept all 17 books to read over and over. I feel like I know the people in the books as well as my real life friends. romance books but not Historical are always welcome.


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

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! Favorite candle scents are flowers and cinnamon, esp apple. LOVE think dishtowels. Not crazy zbout 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.

I have a red kitchen and all my towels are plain red, no design unless stripes or checkered. Love the towels from William Sonoma, but they are expensive. If you can find a knock off...great!! 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 purple and ivory..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 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.


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. 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.
