If you are missing a swap from me...please send me a PM so I can get you a replacement in the mail right away!
I usually mail my swaps from the apartment complex mailboxes where I live, and sometimes the mail comes late in the day, so my swap may not be postmarked the day I did mail it. Please keep this in mind on quick turnaround swaps. Thanks.
I'm a redheaded Virgo and an Army soldier's daughter. Country girl living in the city, and I believe in old school ways of living. I have 2 daughters aged 18 and 30. I've taught them the valuable old school ways of home and family keeping.
So while I'll admit I can be cranky and set in my ways, I'll also admit I have a soft heart for animals.
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. I like BBC/british tv shows.
I'm currently watching every season of House, MD for the second time. Hugh Laurie makes me laugh.
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 going to car shows and watching the Barrett-Jackson and Mecum auctions.
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 also enjoy exchanging postcards on Postcrossing.com, and have mailed over 110 postcards to date.
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'm interesting in learning to make ATC's and other paper crafts.
I'm not a fan of pastel colors.
I do like black, teal and silver. They're also my daughter's high school colors! Go Falcons!
I love black and white photographs and postcards!
Some cards I'd like to receive are:
=> beautiful landscapes/flower filled fields

I love to bake and collect recipes!
I have no food allergies, only aversions. Seafood is one of them. Yuck. Other aversions: ginger, coconut, and anything overly spicy.

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've had all "5"s and never a bad rating. I have always been a reliable swapper and I always send my swaps. I also follow through with partners whom I haven't been rated by to see if my swap was received. That's my primary concern. I enjoy sending happiness in the mail and never want to disappoint. I've been disappointed in the past, and it stinks!
