About Me

I always rate. If I haven't rated you then please send a message to me to make sure I received your swap. I might be behind in my rating,I rated the wrong person or your swap might not have the swap name and I couldn't find which swap it went to.

I am 46 years old. I first joined this site to trade more postcards, but have discovered other "favorites" or new crafts. Favorites are cemetery photos, practicing photography in general, Zentangles, handmade cards and note cards. I also love making envelopes. I try some ATCs, but like the Zentangles still need lots of practice, so be patient with me and not too critical. When I have the time, I love to journal.

I work as a systems analyst at a hospital. I have a lot of people who come at me every day with little problems and big problems. I do my best to be polite and not come off as someone who knows so much. Any one who does know me, knows this is far from the truth. I make so many stupid mistakes.

I have three grown children and one child at home who is 15. My kids range in age 26 -15. I have three dogs. (I just have one dog now, my Shih-Tzu. I lost the other two this past March and April 2013. Please don't send any dog items - postcard, stickers or whatever. I miss my dogs a lot. One had cancer and the other out of control diabetes.) Greyhound/Yellow lab mix about 11 years old. I have a 4 year old Dalmatian. And lastly, I have a Shih Tzu who is 1. They are a motley crew for sure. I am a single parent.

I like military postcards the most above everything else. They can be hard to come by for many people.

I also like the following types of postcards:

US Presidents or International Royal, President, etc.

US Flags or International Country Flag

US State Map or International Map

US State Capital

Portrait Postcards

Historical Postcards


Any mystical like angels, faires, dragons, etc.

Any Animal, but please no snakes or spiders!!

Do you have a great photo to make into a postcard? Please send it.

If you have a nice handmade postcard that is also welcome.

I love to do genealogy and try new crafts. I'm not always successful and often start more than one project at a time. This means some never get done!!!

TEA SWAPS I thought I would try some tea swaps. I am open to any tea, but would prefer it to be packaged in it's original packet. I do not like lemon in any kind of drink, so any tea with lemon flavoring I probably would not like. I am open to any other flavor or combination of flavor.

Looking forward to swapping with you.

Favorite Music

New Age, Movie Sound Tracks

Favorite Books

I like a lot of different books. Mostly I have been reading Paranormal books. I got hooked on them.

Love Harry Potter - my 15 year has always worn round glasses, so he gets called a blond Harry Potter a lot.

I love to look at books about different crafts to get ideas, or to really try my hand at something new.

I love biographies - not really celebs, but real stories about real people. Celebs are real people, too, but I hear enough about them.

I love Youth Paranormal, Addison Moore, Elle Casey, Quinn Loftis.....read them if you haven't. Great new authors.

Favorite Crafts

I think I mentioned post cards already. You would make me very happy just sending postcards.

I recently discovered Zentangles from another swap. They look really easy, but I keep trying and keep failing. But, practice makes perfect.

I love genealogy, but not sure there is something you could send about that. Oh yes, there is.....at my library I can print off pages from micro fish for free, so if this is something that you can do for free, then I would love old newspaper articles about crime, politcs, current events at that time, or comics or advertisements that sound really funny to us now, but weren't at the time they were written.

I am trying my hand at making postcards and greeting cards. I do cross-stitch and would love to sit long enough to needlepoint.

I've started to make handmade envelopes.

Comment: I really like your ATC!! But unfortunately you marked the swap sent June 8 which was the last day to send the swap out, the postmark says the letter was sent June 15. And unfortunately you didn't contact me about being late. I hate to do this as I really liked what you sent but honest ratings are important for this site...

indygirlfriend rated for Make Your Own Journaling Tag on Jun 21, 2013
Comment: LOVE your journaling tags! You did a great job on these and a great job on the swap! If you do another one, I will join! Love your handmade envie too!!!
Response: Thank you!
qbee rated for Decorate an envie with Butterflies! on Jun 10, 2013
Comment: very nice thank you. Debbie
Comment: Hey Debbie, thank you for what you sent. I loved all the vintage envies and hello kitty stuff you gave me. This was sent in May, and it just took its sweet time to get to me lol.
Response: Wow that was a long time. I've seen mail get to Germany in 6 days. Just glad you finally received it,
Comment: Thanks for the 3x5! I love the card, but I must admit, the heart that I gave you comes more from the envelope. I love handmade envelopes, and this one(both inside and out) might be one of the coolest recycled ones that I've seen. I'm guessing that its from a klutz book; I'll have to keep my eye out for one to cut up! Thanks a lot!
Response: I can't remember which one I used. I try to find bigger books with nice pictures on the whole page at library sales or yard sales.
BetsyPreston rated for Fountain Pen Pal - April 2013 on May 12, 2013
Comment: Nice letter! What pen did you use? And what ink? How interesting that it started out black and turned blue. My guess is that you had black ink in the pen, then refilled with blue without flushing the pen first. So the last of the black came out, then the new blue. Is that possible?
Response: There is a blue and black in cartridge. It was dark so I thought the blue was black. Oh well :) Glad you liked the letter.
jaz1yn rated for Facebook Group Swap on May 12, 2013
Comment: Quite an interesting list, though some were pages instead of groups. I am thinking about joining the photo one too! Oh and by the way about the last group (Lawrence County genealogy) you mentioned, "closed" just means that you have to request to join... and then someone can approve/add you to the group. Some groups are closed because the creator/members don't want their posts available to the public; they are only viewable by members.
Response: I thought I did get all groups. I did get a message from someone on the Lawrence County group. I was thrilled to get it. The swap showed me more of facebook.

Response: Glad it did make it. Sometimes international can be quick and a few times I'm not sure where it goes....just glad it finally showed up :)

You did a great job!!!!! I like how you did the hexagon one! I always feel like I have to use every pattern in one zentangle, you didn't do that with yours which makes them really cool!! Thanks!!!!
