About Me

I PLEDGE TO RATE!

Hi all! I'm Lori! ¡ƃuıddɐʍS ʎddɐH

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. I mark my swaps sent after I place them in the outgoing mail slot for daily pickup. If I'm unsure about the amount of postage, I take it to the post office, then come back and mark sent.


A note about postcard swaps: I'm generally not hard to please. However, please do not send any postcards depicting violence, race, or anything offensive or risque. My daughters love to look at my postcard collection, I do not have a preference as to whether they are written on or blank. That's up to you. I do check my partners profile and try my best to send something relating to the interests they have listed. Thank you.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, LET ME KNOW IF YOU DON'T RECEIVE A SWAP FROM ME BEFORE YOU RATE . I WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE RECEIVES WHAT IS OWED THEM.

ALSO, PLEASE RATE ME WHEN YOU RECEIVE MY SWAP, SO I KNOW YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT! THANK YOU!

I'd just like to apologize in advance if my handwriting seems a tad messy at times. I have a bit of arthritis in my hands.

I am not a "hard to please" person. I do have a list of likes and dislikes, although if this is a profile-based swap, please feel free to send something not on my list if it is something on your "likes" list. 😀

I like folk, pop, and classic rock music. Indie and alternative rock. Techno, Bachata, and merengue. Love me some Calvin Harris.

I also enjoy some Frank Sinatra and Lady Gaga. :)

I love cats, anything cats!

I have a 14 year old brown tabby named Pancho. He recently spent a week in the hospital having radioactive iodine therapy for hyperthyroidism. It was the longest week of my life, as I couldn't visit him because of the radiation. 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. I was so afraid he would forget about me. I was able to send an old blanket I had used (for my scent) and one toy. The good news: He was completely cured. If you're ever on the fence about the treatment, feel free to message me and I'll be glad to share our experience. It is costly but so worth it.

Favorite Television

I enjoy reality TV shows. I'm a fan of Discovery channel, History channel are also faves. Nat Geo is also a great channel. Oh and BBC.

I have 2 beautiful daughters, ages 17 and 29. Hubby and I love to embarrass them by putting on 70's and 80's music, dancing and reliving our high school years. ~Class of '86!~ We're kinda goofy that way..LOL!

My youngest daughter is a huge Dr Who fan. She also likes " Black Butler". She hopes to be a detective someday. For movies I like comedy,suspense, thriller, Jason Statham in any movie, Morgan Freeman in any movie, but not really sappy movies.

I recently discovered the series "Supernatural" on Netflix and am hooked. I also love to watch "Hell on Wheels" with my husband.

As for sports- American Football. Patriots!

Favorite Books

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! like to swap on Paperbackswap.com.

Historical fiction (stories about royalty or life in the early 1900's) captures my interest. Mystery and suspense along with horror stories as well.

Favorite Crafts

I need recipe cards! Having a hard time finding blank recipe cards.

I have an office supply fetish. LOL!!! I mean, I love office supplies. Pencils, pens, pretty date books, folders, colorful paper, etc.

I enjoy photography, animals (especially cats!) and collecting buttons. I LIKE TO COLLECT STICKERS!! I also like to bake and study sustainable living. I have two daughters. I also enjoy exchanging postcards on Postcrossing.com, and have mailed over 100 postcards to date. I can always use blank postcards.. My style is vintage/modern/industrial. I love bright colors, as well as gray/black/tan/beige.

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.

Foods, etc.

I have no food allergies, only aversions. Seafood is one of them. Yuck. Other aversions: ginger, coconut, and anything overly spicy. I love to bake!! I could eat peanut butter right out of the jar, and never get sick of it. I've also carried on a 40+ year love affair with Kosher Dills. Unfortunately I have to share them with my husband, who loves them as much as I do. We always play rock, paper, scissors for the last one in the jar. Yes, we're kids at heart.

And I love ice cream although I hardly ever get to eat it.!!

My fave candies are Skittles. I also like Starburst. Watermelon Jolly Ranchers. Any candy except coconut or sours.

Dark Chocolate is my one weakness, although I live in Florida, so if you're going to mail it to me, please only do so during the months of November through March.

About Me

Things I would be happy to receive in swaps: stickers I am trying to start a collection!

Blank postcards, Frida Kahlo items, Tim Holtz scrapbooking supplies.

Anything kawaii for my daughter. Hot cocoa packets and chocolate, gum for my daughter. 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. Books. Ephemera. Cat themed items, Fuzzy and colorful socks (9-11 women's as I have big feet,lol) Pressed flowers, Lace, Fat quarters of fabric, Dishcloths and dish towels and cloth napkins,as I don't use paper towels or paper napkins. Homemade soaps. Search a word books. Notebooks/notepads.notecards. Recipe cards. Black and white prints/postcards/ephemera of any sort. Toys for Pancho (my kitty). Rustic, industrial style anything. I also love the art of Erte. I love Bach and Tchaikovsky, and many other classical music artists.

About Me

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. No funny business here. Never a problem. 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 sucks!


I am missing a number of ratings from recently, but I'm not going to chase them down. People know what they're supposed to do to be a responsible swapper. I rate everyone either the same or next day after receiving swaps.

Comment: Thank you Lori for the pretty postcard and sharing about all the springtime birds where you live! I saw a robin a few weeks ago and he hung out in my tree/bush that has berries every morning for weeks. But now he's been pooping on my car looking at himself in my side mirrors. lol Happy spring!

Comment: Thank you for the nice Zion card - I LOVE Zion (only been once, two years ago, but would love to go again!). I have my own saying that is similar to what you wrote, I say that "everyone you meet is an opportunity, an opportunity to learn something new, fall in love, find a job, a new hobby..." So be kind to everyone you meet, for you never know what you may learn!
