About Me

I love to travel, and have a goal of seeing all 50 states. As soon as I have more time, I want to see more of the world.

My kiddos are all in college, I’ve been married for a long time, and I spend my free time reading, crafting, and snuggling on the couch with my dog and binge watching.

I love how our hobbies connect us with people all over the world.

Friendly Note: I always rate promptly and appreciate when you do the same. I enjoy doing swaps and I’m here to have fun. I’m pretty laid back when it comes to the actual ratings and if you let me know when something is running late, or if I receive something that is not a perfect match, I try never to rate down as long as you are not a total flaker. No stress needed. 😊

SWAPS I HOST: I don’t do drama so if you can’t keep your drama to yourself, please don’t sign up for anything I’m hosting. I’m here to facilitate some fun swaps, not to babysit. Thanks 😊

Haiku for You Swap (2 Haiku Poems)

"Dancing, Flying"

Ascending into

the sky, dipping and diving,

the kite dances by.


Beach sand and water,

welcomes beach-goers with warm sand

and cool water waves.

(Barbara Brandt, sleepingrover2010)

Piccolo on Jun 9, 2021:

Hi! Here’s my Haiku for You

I wanted alpacas,

But I’m allergic to hay,

So I can’t have them.

From, Piccolo

we learn from the world it opens our hearts and minds fills us with wonder
