What I Pledge

I take my swapping very seriously, I like to read my partners profile to get a sence of who they are and will always try to send the best packages. If for some reason you do not get a package from me, please pm me and I will resend. If for some reason I would ever be late, I will always pm you before the send date.

About Me

I've been swapping now since Feb. 2008. I am totally addicted and have made many new friends. I love to surprise my Swap-Bot friends with RAKs.

I'm a homemake who has been married for 36 years to my best friend Mike. We have 2 grown children, a german shepherd and 3 cats. Now that the kids are gone we have much more time to do the things we enjoy. We have a Harley and love to ride as much as possible. I have more time (and room) to do my crafting.

My favorite colors are green and purple.

Favorite Books

I love to read science fiction and thriller/suspense books. My favorite book series is the Xanath series by Piers Anthony. Some other authors that I like are Patricia Cornwell, Johnathan Kellerman, Robin Cook and James Patterson.

Favorite Movies

I love action/adventure, comedy and science fiction movies. I'm totally into the Marvel movies I can watch them over and over again.

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite shows are Gothem, Scorpian, Big Bang Theory, Lucifer, Lethal Weapon, The Librarians and Marvel's Agents of Shield.

Favorite Crafts

Since joining swap-bot I have had the pleasure of being exposed to artist and art that I had never seen before. The level of craftsmanship still amazes me and makes me want to explore my own talents. I've been making atc's, handmade envies, twinchies and postcards. I've been playing with mail art and have just started making zines. What fun!

-Some themes I like: Birds, Fish, Dinosaurs, Animals, Mushrooms, Science Fiction, Bugs & Lizards

Comment: Hi Barbara, I love how you decorated the pc. Such a cute house and flowers. It turned out great. My family is healthy but two of the four of us did get Covid. Thankfully it wasn’t very bad. I’m glad you and yours are well!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely napkins and extras! I can't wait to use the cherry blossom one!
Comment: Girl, you sent the most amazing envelope I've ever seen -- by far! Did you seal the paper somehow or just did a very detailed job with adhesive?? Anyway, the inside of the envelope was just as cool. I love crafting with book pages and you sent a great variety. Thank you so much!!
Response: So glad you like it! I really like to make the envelope as special as what is inside it.

Thank you for the AWG July wish. The butterfly die cuts are perfect. Just what I wanted. Happy swapping!

Thank you for the wish from A Wish Granted. I'm guessing it's a birthday card, so I am going to wait to open it. Thank you!

Barbara, thank you for the birthday wishes; what a nice surprise in my mailbox today! Love the die-cuts & shaped paperclips (the penguin & deer are new to me); I'll add them to my profile list :)

MisplacedfromPA on Jun 1, 2021:

While I was away, I got these adorable little snail mail stickers from you from an Etsy dealer. It says Here's a little something for you , , on the back of the card. Not sure if for a swap, so let me know so I can rate you. If a RAK...it is so much appreciated, thank you.

Artistic on May 31, 2021:

AWG May 2021 -- I suppose it would help if I call up the correct profile before posting notes! (please delete the last message). Thank you so very much for the beautiful 8 diecuts. The butterflies are so detailed and fragile. I look forward to creating with everything you sent for my birthday month celebration.

ChrisAnne on May 14, 2021:

Thank you for the postage from my A Wish Granted May wishlist. I appreciate you thinking of me. And WELCOME BACK!
