About Me

UPDATE: ~~~~~~~~~~

I will be on vacation June 27, 2018 - July 2nd and then a few days after I return I will be having back surgery. So I will be taking a break from swap-bot while I recoup from the surgery. Which I'm told will be between 6 months and a year. I won't be gone a whole year.

I'm not signing up for any more swaps or tags. And all of my packages will be sent out before I leave for vacation. Thanks you all for this great place.


For some reason my address is NOT showing up correctly and it is not allowing me to correct it.

I put the correct street address in the second address line. Please disregard the first address line. Thank you. =========================

I like unusual items and unusual art. My all time favorite color is PURPLE, any shade or hue, and I also like Lime Green.....but HATE, absolutely hate the color BLUE!!!!!

I enjoy receiving mail whether it be a postcard or letter, or a box of goodies. I will find a use for it in my art. Just don't like receiving those bills!!!! LOL!

I have two wonderful grown Grandsons and Java (Chihuahua) is 7 yr old girl.

I have an addictive personality and I have become addicted to swapping and love preparing my packages to send out with the hopes that my partner enjoys it.

Favorite Numbers: 12, 15 and 66.

Favorite Scents: Vanilla and Gardenia.

Favorite Flavors: Coffee and Vanilla.

Favorite Foods: Chinese, Pizza and Desserts (I have a sweet tooth)!

Favorite Drinks: Coffee (any kind or style), Dr. Pepper.

Favorite Perfumes: White Shoulders and Poison

I love art and craft books and want to get more altered art books, art journal books and the like. Trying to build my art/craft book library.

And I live in Southern Illinois, USA

Favorite Music

easy listening, instrumental (flutes, pipes, piano, etc), top 40. Just about any kind of music is fine with me as long as I have music in my life.

Favorite Movies

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original movie)

Mr. Magoriums Wonder Emporium

Cats-The Broadway Show

I like true stories, comedies, love stories. But dis-like horror films (they are a waste of my time)

Favorite Television


any of the Tiny House shows


The Good Doctor

This is Us

Big Bang Theory

Two Broke Girls

Favorite Crafts

rubber stamping

paper arts of all kinds

polymer clay

bead weaving

I also sew, embroidery, needle felting, and crochet

And recently began making dog sculptures from recycled items.


Things I DISLIKE or would NOT like to receive:


BLUE, anything, I hate (and I don't use that word) the color with a passion

anything Disney or Pixar

Memo pad/ sticky notes (I have more than I need)

Sport related

Chocolate (allergic to it)

Religious related

Anything with a SNAKE on it, I am petrified by snakes, even a picture of them.

Horror themed items
