Just a Note:


Please contact me with issues or concerns with my swaps. I read the PM.s sent to me. So please contact me using the Pm rather then the email. Thank you

FYI.... No fear I always Rate. My swap bot mail goes to a P.O.Box.I go to retrieve my mail as often as I can.When I pick up my mail I rate. Sometimes larger swaps may not fit in my standard size box. If the postal clerk has left for the day, I cannot pick up my mail. The clerk is kind enough to keep it behind the counter for me rather than fold it & stuff it in my box.

. . . I am Not A Flaker Nor Am I A Non Rater . .

Please Send & Rate as well,Thank You :)

About Me

On My Days Off...

I can be found relaxing at home.Or out with my family & friends. I love to shop at craft stores.I am always on the look out for bargains.

When I am not bargain hunting.I usually can be found snapping pictures or reading a book by the waters edge. Or spending time with my family & friends.That is really what I enjoy.


Yes I have = (

What About Color

If I had to choose my favorite color, I would say green.Not Neon Green or Anything Neon.Then my next fave color would be blue, like blue jeans. Also,Earth tones, which are simple & go with just about everything I have.

I also love pink & brown, when paired together.Many shades of green are appealing to my eye.Also pink alone & brown alone.

Purple is nice, all depends on what it is.When it comes to paper & color, the sky is the limit.I use a lot of card stock paper & scrapbook paper.

Just Say Noooooo

I Do Not Expect partners to go crazy, looking around for these things to send to me. JUST Expanding My Profile.Without being a pain in the butt. :)



Makeup,Creams,Lotion's,Perfume Or Anything Scented What So Ever.Most Products give me Mad Head Aches for some reason. With one or two exceptions. I use Essential Oil's from Young Living Inc. I also use Scented Candles from Yankee Candles. Which are fine for me to use.I do not get head aches.

No need to worry,because rarely or if ever sign onto a swap, that calls for these things certain products.Products that are hard to find. I joined swap bot to trade my photos and my crafts. As well as postcard collecting and a few other things I like to collect. Such as used postage stamps and smashed pennies.

Swap bot is about having fun, not stress. Since I have to be very careful of what I can use & wear.I would never put myself in a situation that will cause confusion.Such as joining a swap that calls for Spa & Bath Products Etc. Cause if I did & my partner read my profile, from top to bottom.They would be confused as hell. Or at least after Reading this section of my profile that is,LOL...

Thank You, for taking the time to read my long winded profile : o Have A Great Day!
