I’m back, slowly but surely. Going to try for ATC’s and jewelry swaps!
You can email me at [email protected] if you need me!
> While hearts are certainly NOT expected for every swap, when either myself or even YOU go out of the way to include something really extra, a plain 5 with or without a "thank you" is truly a bummer. If no heart, how about a few words???
I CHECK & TRY TO FOLLOW PROFILES OF ALL MY PARTNERS, even if not a profile specific swap!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am lucky that my local post office lobby is open 24/7, so if I mark a swap as sent & it's a Sunday, the P.O. will send it out the next day, Monday morning or Tuesday if that Monday is a holiday!
I am only doing USA Only swaps, I can't afford the postage, unfortunately, even to Canada. Not only that, the 2 low ratings I received were years ago, from Europe and because of postal reasons.
> COLORS I APPRECIATE! I love purple!!! All shades, They are all lovely! BUT, I don't ONLY like purple. Lately I’ve been drawn to turquoise for some reason.
My husband Todd & I will be married 29 years this coming July 2021. No kids, but we had 2 four legged pups named Scooter & Oscar. Old age & ill health forced us to walk them over the Rainbow Bridge in May of 2020. Lately my time is spent making jewelry consisting of bracelets, earrings, mask holders, eyeglass holder chains etc. out of beads or wasting time on Facebook. I am making jewelry more now, check out my Pinterest above or Flickr.
I deliver Meals On Wheels every Thursday, have been for almost 2 years. It is very fulfilling & really enjoy meeting & engaging with my delivery clients! I have a booth every Friday at our local farmers market & I love it!
> I was a PASSIONATE scrapbooker, but I have cut down on that too. I've started cross stitching at night to keep me from grazing. Only with STAMPED patterns!
I love to give away stuff that I have. I have SO much scrapping stuff that I'm overwhelmed!
I COLLECT MAGNETS!!!
The more unusual the better.
I have all U.S. magnets shaped like the maps of each state already! I love unusual magnets, from everywhere, I have over 1000 & need more! > I am REALLY into purple. I don't like all things purple, & I don't only have purple things, but I do have a lot of purple. Not just "purple" either. There's lavender, wine, burgundy....you get the picture. When I did a lot of scrapbooking, I would work on my vacations, my dogs, parties, general life things. I made books for friends, & co-workers when they had special occasions. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Books? I have to read/listen to books through audio, I get them from the library or Audible online. I can't read anymore...I have found that I have a slight case of dyslexia & I've been missing out on a lot of text. :)
Finished ALL the Nocturne Falls books by Kristin Painter & then the "universe" books. Now up to date on her Shadow Vale. Trying a bunch of other paranormal series. Love, love, love them!
I'm obsessed with JD Robb's Eve Dallas! I will only read them in order, I'm all caught up to Feb, 2021. I like Linda Lael Miller's time travel novels, Faye Kellerman & Jayne Ann Krentz! I love time travel, from now back to the past, like the move Kate & Leopold.
I love mystery/love stories and love stories with vampires.
PLEASE NOTE: I CAN NOT NOT NOT READ PAPER BOOKS, MUST BE CD FORMAT OR PLEASE DON'T SEND TO ME. THANKS! But, I do like to skim magazines!

~ I watch all the CSI's/NCIS', I record everything I watch, I use to have 5 VCR's, but now I have one DVR. I still have 2 VCR's, just in case of a recording emergency! You can't always DVR "on demand" so I record it
I had Gastric Bypass in August 2001. I've lost 102 lbs, I started at 220. If anyone wants to talk about it, please let me know. I'm pushing the surgery, & if you've had it & can't seem to get past a plateau, let me know! I can help you "move" that stuff!!
I recently removed the names I had in here...they have all either gotten new accounts or haven't swapped in years.
