I always send swaps and rate as well! If you don't receive a rating, I probably didn't receive the swap as of yet or it was lost in the mail. I will contact the swap partner if I don't receive something in a months time, before I rate a bad rating. Life happens and this is to be a fun experience, not a stressful hobby.

f you don't receive a swap let me know before giving me a bad rating. I don't flake, so message me first!

I like collecting postcards from other places that show the person's town, historical place, flowers native to that area, scenic postcards, and local foods, lighthouses, snow capped mountains, covered bridges, famous buildings, and countryside, I like Lantern Press and Zazzle post cards as well!

If you are from Canada, I am interested in your local area, National Parks, Lighthouses, and anything you can recommend to visit in your country!

Wish list for a gift: Mrs. Grossmans Create Your Own Sticker Art. Any book she offers!

Also, I use to love the Invisible Ink Yes and Know books. You know Ages 8-88! Any of these would be fun! I recently remembered these and thought that would be fun to have being at home a lot more or even for this coming winter!

Recently I started doing Jigsaw puzzles! I enjoy Lighthouses, Flowers, Barns, Animals, or anything in my likes. I don't care what size from 100 pieces to 500 pieces are nice. If you have a 1,000 piece that is ok, too!

note cards, stationary, stickers, washi tape rolls

pen pals(I really like chatty letters too!)

travel(anything to do with your area or country)I like beaches with the mountains in the background. I like Maine coastline, the west coast especially WA and OR, and the Great Lake Region. I also like Lighthouse are interesting along with Covered Bridges.

Tea cups and teapots(anything with tea cups or teapots on it )notecards, postcards, stickers

Drinking Tea and Hot Cocoa! I love Peppermint, Peach, Plain Black tea, and ones from English Tea Shop. I new one is Green Tea with mint as well. I also love Southren Sweet Tea in the summer. I like a light to medium roast coffee with cream, no sugar.

My favorite candy is Chocolate anything! I love Lindt, but any Chocolate. I am not a big fan of food coloring like candy, but do like M &M's. If it is more natural Food coloring candy like found at Trader Joe's than I am ok with that.

The country life(old rustic barns, chickens, Jersery cows, bikes with baskets, pictures with an old truck on them like the Walton's truck, picnics ) Sunflowers too Any note cards, stickers, with these items is great as well.

I like to eat ice cream! Ice cream stickers are great too! Or any note cards, writing paper with ice cream on it.

I like to read Christian Fiction on Mysteries, Romance, Biographies, homesteading stories, tea books, devotionals, and well anything you think I may like.

learning about other foods and cultures

I like all flowers! I enjoy fresh flowers on the dining room table. I love flower gardens but mine aren't like the professional ones. Some of my favorite are Sunflowers, Tulips, Roses, Star grazer lilies, and Lupines.

Favorite colors that I like: Bright Pink or Fushia, Lime Green, Sunshine Yellow, Purple, Navy, and Red,

Favorite room colors, I like cream, light brown, so I can accent it with a brighter color. Accent colors purple, reds, greens, blues, and yellows.

About Me

I enjoy traveling around the USA, but would love to travel abroad again someday. Since traveling is expensive, doing swap-bot can help knowing other from other countries and the USA.

When I was a in grade school, we got a pen pal from another local school. That is where I learned to love have pen pals. Than I went to camp and learned more friends to write too. That was back in the day of no electronics. In High School, I got my first try at an international pen pal.

I am a wife and mother to 3 children.

Send me anything listed here:

anything from another country

tourist books

Frig magnets


Christian Fiction books you have read and liked, Biographies, Non-Fiction books on Flower, Herbs, picture books showing your area or any type of picture travel books, inspirational coffee table books

I have Book 1 & 2 of Mysteries of Martha's Vineyard.
I am interested in reading the rest of this series. I also would enjoy reading more of these type books by Guideposts. I haven't dove into these because I only discovered them.


Note cards or Stationary(I like Punch Studio products, Lang, Leanin' Tree, but them are just some favorites. I really like anything you send me.)
