About Me


Update 5/5/2020

Wow! Where has the time gone! Years have passed since my last logon, and something showed up in my FB memories that brought me back!

I am single, sharing my home with two beautiful cats.

Some of the old Old Stuff that still rings true:

If anyone likes this profile and thinks we have similar interests - lets do a private swap! Message me!!

And so here it all is......

I'm a waitress and I love my job.. I also worked for years as a DJ, under the name Jan Brady 😊

I enjoy hanging out at home with my Cats, listening to tv while doing other things - Making beaded knotted bracelets, crochet, making bookmarks with my laminator, blowing bubbles in the front yard, baking cookies. I love shopping at the Goodwill and going to Tag Sales, and getting mail :)

I'm not religious, but I am a BIG BELIEVER in Karma, and I practice doing good every day..

Also, Peace, Love and Harmony..

I'm not fond of texting or dismembering the English language.. Please don't "LOL" me or "ROTFLMAO" me.. Please.. this is why I love Snail mail.. I have a Cellphone for phone calls only..

I Love people with similar interests!! Snail Mail, Cats, Snoopy & all of the Peanuts Gang!!, Coke, Popcorn, Movies, Waitressing, DJ-ing, Baking Cookies, Crochet, Collections, Beagles, and more stuff, Kids out on their own, My Grandkids, Denmark, T-shirt and Jeans Wearers..

Favorite Music

I'm a little more old school with my tastes.. Yes, RUSH, Moody Blues, Jethro Tull, Beatles, Monkees, but I do like newer stuff - DMB, Green Day, Vampire Weekend, Deathcab for Cutie, and other stuff.. I love 80's alternative and WEIRD AL and most modern Alternative, but I am very fussy and change the radio dial often! Hehehe...

Favorite Movies

Anything John Cusack, but also lots of other stuff.. I love movies (I stay away from Horror and too much testosterone Action, but everything else is fair game)

My favorites on the Short list would be : Grande Budapest Hotel, and all things Wes Anderson, Shawshank Redemption, Dogma, Young Frankenstein, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The old claymation Christmas movies (Year without a Santa Clause, Santa Clause is coming to town), About a Boy and anything Marx Brothers, Martin & Lewis, or Abbott & Costello. I love Buster Keaton & Chaplin too.. I love movies and wish I could afford the theatre more often..


I have a collection of collections!! My favorites are Snoopy/Peanuts & Coca Cola ( more modern than vintage, I don't really care for the older Coke Girls and such).. I'm always looking for Coke stuff to add to my kitchen & dining room.. I have a wonderful collection of Snoopy Stationery and look for more vintage stuff on Ebay all the time.. I also collect purses (mostly canvas) and I'm a little hippy-ish wearing them all like messenger bags.. (incidentally I love Tie-dyed anything!!)

Love the Boston Red Sox!

And I LOVE Cardstock Paper - the thicker stuff - to make things with! My own postcards, invites, etc. i live near the Crane factory ( the place that makes all the paper money ) and sometimes, I can find boxes of them at tag sales! Oh, the Joy!

Favorite Television

I like intelligent, Smart, funny t.v.., The Office.. I also love Late Night with Stephen Colbert.. He's awesome!! MLT, & Classic Star Trek is #1!!!! Lately, I’ve been watching Little House of the Prairie😊 I try not to watch too much t.v. though.. It makes me so darn lazy..

Favorite Books

I'm a little all over the place for Books.. I love Reading, but don't allow myself enough time to "indulge".. I have a huge stack to "to be read".. I just finished reading Craig Ferguson's book "American on Purpose".. It's great!! I haven't quite decided what to read next.. I've always been a big fan of Stephen King, but I dig Comics (I have a modest collection of Archie's from the 80's), Graphic Novels (of the 'Adult Nature'.. yeah, I'm a weirdo), and I've enjoyed Bukowski, J.D. Salinger, Herman Hess, Berke Breathed, Charles Shultz (hehhe), and Nobody beats Calvin and Hobbes!!

More Favorites!!

I Love the Peace Symbol - Stickers, paper, fabric, anything!!

Favorite Candy Bar: Reeses Sticks (and I can't find them here in Fun Size!!)

Favorite Colors: Red, Green, light yellow

Favorite Food: PIZZA & Popcorn

Favorite Smells: FRUIT (Yankee Candle Fruit is my absolute favorite!!)

Favorite Flavors: FRUIT

Favorite Comic Strips: Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes & Bloom County!!

Favorite Candy: Peppermint Sugarless Gum

Favorite Necessary Evil : Flossing my Teeth

Favorite Animal: Shortlegged dogs and shorthaired cats..

Favorite Stationary: Snoopy / Peanuts ANYTHING!

I would love it if anyone sent my way Pictures, Drawings, and/or advertisements (sized good enough for framing) of Popcorn, Coke or Diet Coke, & Pizza, as these are my favorite wall decorations for my Kitchen and other areas around my house!!

My few dislikes:

I only have a few things to mention here, and I only do because they are pretty popular within these swaps ..

I don't drink Tea or Coffee..

I'd prefer no religious material.. (but any Karma related material is totally welcome!!!)

that's all.....

Favorite Crafts

I own two Pin Back Button makers and I LOVE them. I have a collection of buttons ranging from the early 90’s to current - and they are all on the ceiling of my 2011 Subaru Forester. I love finding magazines to clip words, phrases, pictures to make new buttons😊 I started wood-burning a few years back, and make keychains, magnets and ornaments/gift tags out of round wood discs.

I’ve been making (what I refer to as) Hippie dippie jewelry. Beaded knotted bracelets, charm earrings, and other stuff. I have sold at craft fairs and hope to get back to that this year.

I love making bookmarks out of paper and card stock. More magazine clippings!

I enjoy the simple crochet projects - skinny scarves, mostly. I love skinny Long scarves.

I’ve dabbled in ATC’s, Dotee dolls, simple sewing projects ( love making drawstring bags, hehe).

There’s other stuff too, but those are my highlights.

Thank you for angeling the Profile Random Swap for me! I especially love the little silver charms!

bauerdesigns on May 14, 2020:

I just saw your keychain swap – I had been contemplating setting up a keychain swap too! Great idea :) Trying to think of other swaps than the typical postcards and ATCs you see on here.

Also, welcome back to Swap-bot! I just came back to Swap-bot from a several-year-long break as well. I was bored and needed something artsy to tinker with! LOL!

I got the second package today, Thank you again so much! I would give you triple hearts if I could the stickers are great.

thehappyhoneybee on Oct 28, 2010:

Hello...I randomly came across your profile and I thought I'd just leave you a note to say that Target currently has oodles of Peanuts Christmas items in their dollar bin areas! Really cute stuff, and obviously reasonably priced as well. Love your user name, btw, it makes me laugh.

minniemack on Oct 19, 2010:

Oh my goodness, I received a thank you package!!! No, I haven't read it yet; I've only read the autobiography. Thank you so much :-)

noteyme on Aug 6, 2010:

Thank you for being a great organizer for the Bookmark Swap #5. It was great. Thanks for leaving messages on the swap and even sending a personal message.

sebastian122 on Aug 4, 2010:

Hmm...blackmailed everyone for my address, huh? I'm guessin' "everyone" was Stacy. =D Thank you for being such a wonderful angel. You went far away, above and beyond, and all that in your desire to make me smile. Well, it totally worked. I can't thank you enough. XO X10000000000000
