About Me

I LOVE Swap Bot!!

07/22/2021 Update. I have deleted some collections as I just had too many. I'm changing my lists to only show Set Collections,.

I like to read, make junk journals, altered books, my own hand-made ephemera from cut-outs, scraps of paper, ribbon, buttons and more. I am a devoted YouTuber. I follow quite a few channels, but love checking out documentaries and other channels that catch my eye.

I have many authors that I like to read and the list keeps growing as I discover new authors. I love retirement; no money to travel anywhere but can do so through Postcrossing, YouTube, books and now Swap-bot.

I love animals, especially cats; big cats and domesticated cats. I also am fond of birds and butterflies. I collect USA postage stamps for the most part, but have started collecting from other countries as well since I joined Postcrossing. I love poetry and write some of my own.

I have many collections in addition to my stamp collection. They are:

Fenton Milk Glass Fenton Cat and other animal figurines Salt and Pepper Shakers Post Cards Books by my favorite authors (Robert B. Parker, John Sanford, Jonathan Kellerman, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Michael Connelly, Iris Johansen, Victoria Holt, and quite a few more. Depression Glass Elegant Glass Journals (all kinds)

My favorite color is green. All greens, everything green. As a young girl my favorite color was Cobalt Blue primarily, but then again it was all blue, everything blue. The thing is I love color, all color. It's hard to choose. There's yellow and red and black and purple...all truly beautiful.

I will follow through with every swap I join. I am dependable, reliable, honest, happy, trustworthy, hard-working. I love life and am grateful for every second, every minute that I am given. I want to be the best that I can be and I want to never stop learning and striving to be better. I make mistakes but I try to learn by those mistakes and move on.

Sincerely Alma

Oh my - such a lovely envelope of items you sent to me. You didn't have to send me an envie full of wonderful items and so many stamps!! That was so very nice of you, but not needed. You went overboard on the first envie. Thank you so much for a Happy Mail day! Frieda
