About Me

About some of my ratings of 3s. I was late, I ADMIT it. I thought they were sent when they weren't. Two of the 3s were postcard swaps, one was received damaged, envie torn to crap with no cards in it. I did resend but rating does not reflect that. With that one being destroyed I was worried about the other one sent at the same time. Two weeks and it had not been received so I resent BUT it was VERY late so that reflects the 3 rating. The pen pal swap was a brainfart and was late. An electronic swap in 2012 was forgotten about and than was sent twice.

My name is Jodie. I live in small town Minnesota, not very exciting.

Hobbies and interests include reading, writing, and music. I do spend alot of time on the computer Facebook, and Paint Shop Pro take up alot of the time. I collect post cards, stationary, graphics anything Bon Jovi or Care Bear related. I make address labels, swap cards, printable stationary, and tags. Want to see some of the tags, printables or Incredimail let me know what you are interested in.

I take my swaps seriously if you don't receive please message me, I will resend it. If you are unhappy about your swap I am sorry. I will try to right it if you message me.

I always look at my partners profile and do my best with what I have if I can't, I will send you a note with the swap explaining.

Favorite Music

I absolutely love Bon Jovi. I listen to alot of 80s and 90 rock bands. Some bubble gum pop and a bit of country. Some of my faves include but are not limited to: Aerosmith, Bangles, Pat Benatar, Cinderella, Constantine Maroulis, Bo Bice, LInda Davis, Taylor Dayne, Def Leppard, FIrehouse, Lita Ford, Eales, Expose, Greath White, Heart, Inxs, Elton John, Joan Jett, Reba McEntire, Mindy Mcready, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Motley Crue, NIckelback, Poison, Queen, Ratt, Slaughter, Trixter, Warrant I could name so many more but I will stop here.


I collect post cards and state bike plates 2 sets. I am open to private swaps on these for post cards, stickers, stationary, address labels, swap cards, almost anything within reason. On occasion things don't make it to the mail box right on time that is why I won't mark them sent before they actually go out. If a swap is received damaged that is unacceptable in my opinion so I will make it up even if its not rerate its the principle in my mind.


I love artwork by Thomas Kinkade, Amy Brown, Nene Thomas, and Jessica Galbreth. I'd love postcards, notecards, computer graphics, and even old calender pages of their artwork.

Pen Palling

I love pen palling! I have been doing it since 1992. I am always looking for new pen pals, I always write back. I am getting frustrated with pen pal swaps as no one ever seems to actual want pen pals as I very rarely hear back from them.But they are quick easy swaps so I may sign up occasionally. I occasionally will slip an intro letter in with my swaps if I see that it could potentially lead to making a new friend. I do write men and international pals. My average letter length hand written is no less than 4 pages.

Favorite Books

I love to read! My favorite authors include Danielle Steel, Catherine Coulter, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts/JD Robb, Sandra Brown, Iris Johansen, Lisa Jackson, Lisa Gardner, Clive Cussler, John Grisham, Dean Koontz,Janet Evanovich, Laurell K Hamilton, and Kim Harrison. I collect mostly hard cover if I can.

Food and drink

I love trying new sugar free drink mixes. I am not suppose to have carbonation any longer and too much sugar makes me sick. Splenda/sucralose is not something I can use either as it upsets my stomach. I love orange, cherry and green apple, dislike grape. I am not a tea or coffee drinker.


I hate that I feel the need to make this category but crap happens.

I was flaked on in my own swap (how sad) by RissaSwapsUS in Drink Mixes Sugar Free. Was on after the date to send was on but never marked the swap swap and it has not been received either. Swap in October 2016 will remove if this is received.


I do not award hearts for extra stuff in swaps, I award them to those that seemed to have looked over my profile and sent things that I like. (Saying that I generally don't join sender's choice swaps.)

Comment: thanks for responding so fast. I will get a letter out this week. Just got back from Iowa, funeral for my mother in law. Nothing like a 3500 mile road trip at the last minute.
Response: No partners when I went to bed but when I get up 3 already sent to me so I felt I needed to get it out! You know? Looking forward to your letter.

My apologies, Jodie. I didn't know you didn't like friendship books immensely. I thought it'd be okay to forward to you since you had a section that mentioned penpals. To be honest, I had never encountered a friendship book until I received that one. Thank you for your patience and understanding by forwarding it.
