I PLEDGE TO RATE! I usually sit down the evening I receive a swap, and rate it. It's only common courtesy to let your partner know it's been received. I am missing many ratings, and it's sad that people can't take 5 minutes to log on and rate their partners. So please pledge to rate!
As many of us know, the postal service has been quite busy this holiday season. Please keep this in mind and be patient. If after 10 business days you haven't received my swap, please message me and I will resend. Please don't just be vindictive and leave bad ratings without giving people the chance to remedy. Thank you.
I mail my swaps from the apartment complex mailboxes where I live. There is no set time when our mail arrives, it could be 10:00 am one day, 7:00 pm the next. This means it may or may not be postmarked the same day I sent it.
PLEASE RATE ME WHEN YOU RECEIVE MY SWAP, SO I KNOW YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT! THANK YOU!
I am not a "hard to please" person. I do have a list of likes and dislikes. Please do not send me anything considered hateful or offensive. My children and grandchildren like to look at my swaps.
I love cats, anything cats!
I have a 15 year old brown tabby named Pancho. . Pancho and I have always been together since I rescued him (or, he rescued me) at 10 weeks of age. He sleeps with his head on my shoulder every night. He's my furry son. :)
I enjoy reality TV shows. I also like DIY and home improvement/decorating shows. AND I love The Pioneer Woman's shows! . I have 2 daughters aged 17 and 30.
My youngest daughter loves anything girly, but she also loves cars, especially exotic cars. I do also, I guess we have a bit of tom-boy in our blood. So we like watching the Barrett-Jackson and Mecum auctions.
Silent 5's. (when someone rates you a five and doesn't leave a message, not even so much as "Thanks".} So it only takes a few seconds to say Thank You. It's common courtesy. BUT if you chose to be this way, I'll kindly reciprocate. :)
The best book I have ever read would have to be "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck.
I've read the complete "Little House on the prairie" series thrice. I enjoy reading about old school living.
I buy alot of books from thriftbooks.com. Save money and save trees!
I enjoy collecting recipes and would love blank recipe cards!
Historical fiction (stories about royalty or life in the early 1900's) captures my interest.
I LIKE TO COLLECT STICKERS!! I also like to bake! I also enjoy exchanging postcards on Postcrossing.com, and have mailed over 100 postcards to date. I can always use blank postcards.. nothing rated "R", please.
Ikea is one of my favorite places to shop.
I love to crochet. I am trying to learn to knit. And I love different kinds of yarn.
I have no food allergies, only aversions. Seafood is one of them. Yuck. Other aversions: ginger, coconut, and anything overly spicy.
And I love ice cream although I hardly ever get to eat it.!!
Things I would be happy to receive in swaps: stickers I am trying to start a collection!
Hot cocoa packets and chocolate, gum for my daughter. Wrapped teabags. Fine point markers, pens (any) Buttons for my vintage Mason button jar. ATC's, Washi tape, Blank postcards Vintage letters Note cards and recipe cards both blank and written. Pens/pencils/sharpies. Ephemera.
Cat themed items,
Pressed flowers, I don't scrapbook, so please know if you do, I appreciate it and then pass it on.
Search a word books. Toys for Pancho (my kitty).
I've had some question why I have older ratings from 2010 under "Shabbypink123" if I joined in 2014. It's because I took a hiatus from Swap-Bot due to family medical issues, and de-activated my account through administrator Rachel.. then when things were better, I contacted Rachel to re-join. Since my old account was still in the system, she merged those ratings with my new account,so I wouldn't lose all of my prior 5 ratings. I have always been a reliable swapper and I always send my swaps. I enjoy sending happiness in the mail and never want to disappoint. I've been disappointed in the past, and it stinks!
