About Me

***I am finally caught up on ratings from all the wonderful Happy Mail I received while on vacation! Thank you everyone! ;)


We adopted a puppy (Ms. Greta) on March 9, 2021, and I forgot how much work they are! LOL! She is a sweetheart but I am way older than when we have had puppies in the past and my Mom eyes in the back of my head seem to be gone, so I have to watch her like a hawk or she is into stuff! LOL! This too shall pass and I am enjoying her puppy silliness & all the love she has to share! Thanks for your understanding if I get behind on rating or commenting on your ratings! Hugs and Happy Swapping 😉


My oldest and his family have moved to Colorado Springs, CO over the 2019 Christmas holidays! They are so excited and we have a new place to visit! LOL!


I am married and have two sons & an awesome DIL - I love the thought of scrap-booking and making cards, but have been lacking the energy as of late! Also love reading and meeting new friends through fb or other group sites! Hope I can participate in some of the swaps on this site and make some new friends!

I was in two B-day clubs with some gals in the UK, from FB and participated in a Christmas card exchange as well. I am always amazed at how creative the cards are from these lovely ladies!

When my oldest son left for college in August 2009, I felt such a void in my life, then I got on fb and found the groups I was involved with - I also found fv and was addicted for awhile!!

Now my oldest graduated from college and Army ROTC in May 2013 and my youngest graduated from college in 2017! Time does fly!

I enjoy meeting new people, exchanging cards and pcs with them, as well as going to local scrap booking events and meeting new folks!

So far I have been lucky that any swaps I have signed up for, I have been able to fulfill my obligation. I would hope that would continue.

I am not into drama and will try to send stuff that I think my swap partner will enjoy - however if I miss the mark, well stuff happens! I am very easy going with what folks send me and just look forward to seeing how others respond to the different swaps!

Loves/Likes - My family, Being happy, Hearing kiddos laugh, Being with gal pals, Scrapbooking, Card making, Meeting new people, Love, love, love to read! The library is one of my favorite places!! The beach, Halloween, Christmas, Birthdays! Soccer, Taking pictures, Being able to help others, Being able to laugh at myself , A clean house (this is a dream of mine but I am a bit of a clutter bug, so...), Traveling, Vacations, Flowers, Learning new things,

Dislikes- Drama when it is not necessary, People that just need to get over themselves, Vacations that do not work out, Kids being disrespectful to their elders and each other, Car problems, Health issues, Feeling like someone has taken advantage of you or someone you care about, Housework! lol

Ratings - I am very good about trying to rate quickly, so if you sent me something and do not see a rating timely, please let me know! Either I did not get the item or it got mixed in with other stuff!! That does happen sometimes!

Flaked on the Punch Art ATC #26 - touch of Red I hosted: FibreJunky - I pmed and emailed, but have not heard from her - swap was angeled - she should not sign up for any additional swaps I host - grrrr!

Flaked on the Punch Art ATC #33-Two Twists that I hosted:Emawee0307 - I emailed her, as she has not been on swap-bot since the day she marked sent, but her partners have not received anything - swap will be angeled, and she is banned from my future swaps - dang this is getting old!

Got flaked on for the Postcards for Sonya - GingerR - how sad this was a RAK sort of swap, so...

Got flaked on the What's for Thanksgiving Dinner? PC swap by teamtiredfeet - what a drag! How hard is it to send a dang pc?? ;(

Flaked on by @Ratatatat in the My Sept 2016 - EDITED swap - this was a bummer as it was a bit time consuming as it covered a whole month - so... The host is angeling the swap with her Oct info.

Swaps

I love all postcards - have a soft spot for vintage postcards but really have not met a postcard I didn't like! LOL!

I would love to receive some cute address labels and could exchange pcs for them! If you can help me out, please send me a pm!

Not trying to be a pain but am cutting way back on international swaps - especially pc swaps! Between the cost of postage increasing and having to resend pcs overseas - it has just been a pain for all! I have really enjoyed sending and receiving from the overseas swaps, but need to make cuts, so... Hopefully everyone understands!

Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely note, the welcome to Swapbot, and the postcards! It sounds like you had an awesome weekend, hope the Elvis impersonation was a great time! Unfortunately we don’t have an Aldi’s here- I’d love to check one out sometime! Thanks again and happy swapping!
Response: Hi! The Elvis impersonator was a hoot and really sounded like him - some gals were so gaga that it was crazy to watch! He had tons of scarves that he handed out and kissed several - yuck, not in this day and age, thank you very much! Thank you for the sweet comment, rating, and heart - all are appreciated! Bummer that you don't have Aldi's there - I love them, now if our Aisle of Shame would get something cool like others post on the Aldi Nerds site! LOL! All the Best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Thanks for the cute card! We have a neighborhood bear, we've decided to stop composting until it decides to wander off to someone else's neighborhood. This year has been flying by, it could go a bit slower in my opinion.
Response: Hi! Well the bears are really a thing in CO, as my son sent us his ring video of a Momma and two babies hanging in his driveway - very cool, unless you are there with your pups, then yikes! Has your neighborhood bear wondered off yet? Thank you for the comment and rating! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Hey Vicky! Thanks so much for resending, I really appreciate it! There is a bison preserve outside of Paducah, Kentucky and my best friend took me and I had a blast! You can drive through the park and see them living their best little lives. They are sooo adorable, even the big mean looking ones! Hope you're having a lovely summer! EDIT: Going through all my mail I just got today and here is the original! Fun dog facts you shared! I wish my dog could read so I could show him, LOL!
Response: Hi! I am so glad both pcs made it - the mail has soooo slow and my hubby who is a mailman is just shaking his head over it! The Bison Preserve in Paducah Kentucky sounds like something I need to visit! Thank for you the sweet comment and rating! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Hi Vicky, Thank You for being patient in receiving your rating for this swap. My slow return on the rating is not because I don't want to share my appreciation for your Outstanding Work. Instead, I'm challenged medically and my challenges sometimes dictate what I'm able to do. Thank you for sending me the 3 postcards that you added to for this swap. I really like the variation in all 3 postcard. I see why you had an issue of what to put on each postcard. I know that I'm going to be challenged as well. I hope we have another, at least one, time(s) to swap with one another. Until then, Happy Swapping! Barbara B., sleepingrover2010 P.S. How was your visit to Colorado Springs? I have just been here since Feb. 2020. I came from Albuquerque, NM. I've been up here a lot over the last 30 yers or so and I always enjoyed. Now, I'm living here with family close by as my health is poor.
Response: Hi! No worries on taking a bit to rate - you do what you can, when you can, so no worries! Our trip to Colorado Springs was amazing! It is a lovely area and I really enjoy the low to no humidity! Wishing you all the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
