About Me

I AM GOING TO BE TAKING A BREAK FROM SWAP-BOT FOR 6-12 MONTHS. I WILL BE BACK BUT AT PRESENT MY HEALTH IS BEING A REAL CHALLENGE. SO, I NEED TO TAKE A BREAK TO REST AND RECUPERATE. IT WILL NOT TAKE MY ILLNESS AWAY BUT MAYBE MY QUALITY OF LIFE IMPROVES SOME WITH REST AND TIME. I am a former elementary school teacher who was placed on disability about 11 years ago due to poor and serious health concerns. I am the aunt to 5 nephews and 4 nieces. One of my nieces is adopted and from Ethiopia. Her name is Mihret (mih-ret). I love making ATC, cards, Skinny cards, books, pocket letters, pen pal kits, and button fairies.

Comment: I love the picture of the PC. I also like the idea of Hope, right?! My first coloring collar swap so it will be very interesting. I am trying to figure out if I should follow the same colors or break out and do it a little different to give if a different life.... what is the acceptable or practiced way? Anyway it is a fabulous idea and I can not wait for all of us to have our cards turn home lol

Thank you for the postcard for the Postcard Roulette! I love the picture of the reading girls. (I'm just a bit confused that you are not listed as a participant for the swap.)

Hi Barbara, thank you for your part in the collaborative postcard #1. I love seeing what was done with my postcard.

Hello Barbara! I cannot leave a rating since we personally agreed on the exchange and there was no official swap but thank you very much for the colorful postcard! The city pictured is Dnipropetrovsk which is in the Ukraine! Your cat sounds so sweet--we have one cat that is so sweet as well and one that is...well...sometimes sweet when he decides to be! Heh! Thank you again! Kindly, Christina

Hi there! I can't give you a rating because it was unassigned, but I wanted to thank you for the unassigned postcard you sent for Postcard Roulette #2. It was a nice surprise!
