If you don't receive my swap or think it doesn't meet the swap requirements, please contact me before rating. I will never flake on sending and I am big on communication. One of my goals is to try and keep a perfect 5 rating and I work hard to do this. Please don't punish me because something might be lost or damaged in the mail and just needs to be resent. That is completely out of my control.
I always rate the minute I receive anything from a swap. Please do the same for me. Not because I am anxious to get the rating but so that I know it arrived safely.
If my swap ever arrives with postage due, please send me a message and I will mail you stamps to apologize for my mistake.
I am a 42 year old living North of Dallas, TX area. Born in Oklahoma but moved to Seattle, WA in 2000. Lived there until 2013 and now living with my husband in TX. My family is in Oklahoma and I realized one day that if anything happened to anyone, it would take me a long time to get to them so I decided to give away about 1/2 of my furniture, load up a truck and move to my husbands home town. Now if anything happens to family I am a 3 hour drive away instead of a flight away.
I have a daughter who is grown. I raised her as a single mother. She is disabled and lives with me pending disability assistance from the state.
I like to keep very busy. I do rock climbing, organize ladies nights with friends, play a lot of games (online, board games and LARPs) and go to SCA events (medieval reenactments). I have lost 45 pounds by eating low carb / low calorie. It is amazing how much energy you have when you eat healthy and drink lots of water!
My husband and I are gamers. We play computer games, tabletop games and LARPs. We often invite over friends to sit around the table and play board games. I also have a gaming YouTube channel which is linked above.
8/20/17 - Because of how busy my life is year round, I only participate in a few swaps if anything. I love swapping but want to make sure I only join what I know for a fact I have time to do.
I like to knit though I'm not able to do anything fancy. I mostly knit scarfs for friends and blankets for friends having babies.
I like to do paper crafts like pen pal letters and journals. I love the slow process of writing neatly in cursive. It is calming.
While living in Seattle I got involved in photography. It was a big focus as an art for me for many years but as digital has taken over film, I've found myself losing interest. As a single mother, I simply couldn't afford to do it anymore so I stopped. I do have many years of work that I often print out in little wallet size prints and mail to pen pals.
I like to draw. My favorite is celtic knotwork but not limited to that. A new fun night out I have started doing once a month is pottery painting with my friends.

Favorite shows: Game of Thrones, Vikings, Historical Documentaries and Anything Tudor based
I am working towards covering a wall with postcards. They do not have to be state / country cards. I prefer to receive postcards naked and stamped.
I collect unique jewelry. I like things that look unusual or antique. One of my favorite things to do is go to thrift stores and dig through the jewelry. (My ears are not pierced so please do not send me earrings)
I love to decorate for all of the seasons and holidays so I collect holiday and seasonal decorations.
I collect stickers and trade them with other people via pen pals and package exchanges. This is one of the reasons this site appeals to me so much! I can't wait to get started!
Magnets - But please no state magnets. I only collect magnets from the states that I have visited with my husband.
I have started collecting stamps (on the envelope with postage markings). So if you have a pretty stamp to stick on the swap, I would love that :D. I cut them out and plan to do a postage journal with pages covered in postage I've received.
I love everything minus what I wrote as a dislike above. I prefer my postcards sent naked and stamped (unless the swap says otherwise).
