NOTICE

PLEASE do not feel that you have to add extra goodies to a swap - unless it's required. ALTHOUGH I am always happy to receive postage stamps (so remember to cut them off your envelopes you receive in case you get my name again). As for crafting stuff, I have a lot of it and I'm trying to do a major downsize.

RATINGS: For me it's confirmation that you have received swap. I do not flake and do my best to fulfill swap requirements. If you feel I did not meet requirements or you did not receive swap, please let me know. I CHECK MY MAIL DAILY AND RATE THE DAY I RECEIVE THE SWAP. If I have not rated you it means that I have not received it.

About Me

Hi there!
I am married and we have four adult children and two beautiful grand daughters. I have been married for going onto 40 years and look forward to the next 40 years with my best friend ❤. We realize how short life is and memories are what we will leave behind with our family, so we enjoy as much family time and trips together. We are working on our bucket lists and it's being so much fun and I'm so happy we have change our ways and enjoying the world.

Swappers is a hobby for me, and now that I’ve stopped crafting, unless my grandkids are visiting, I am now working on downsizing as I have way too much stuff. I just got a quilting/embroidery/sewing and knitting machine, so guess what I'm doing!

I am committed to postcards, I love to read whats written on them and the picture. I enjoy sharing them with our grand-daughters. Whenever we travel I always send them postcards, whether its from a big city or a small village, if I can find a postcard it will be sent to them with a little story about the area, they look forward to getting them. Our oldest grand-daughter (15) has started looking up the postcard subject/city, like the Colliseum in Rome, she found it very interesting and told me about it when we got home. Our youngest grand-daughter (10) will go through my travel book and pick places she wants to go to and recognizes pictures of postcards I've sent. I hope someday we are able to take them on a journey with us.

POSTAGE STAMPS

Don't just throw out the postage stamps that come on envelopes, save them for us collectors. I like new and used poastage stamps. Canada, Finland, Netherlands and Zodiac stamps are just some if the Countries that I like, but I collect a wide variety so feel free to send any postage stamps. Please do not cover your stamps with tape

POSTCARDS

POSTCARDS - NAKED - written on and stamped, unless swap requires differently. No homemade unless swap requires.

Favorite ones that I am collecting: Lantern Press Licences plate with the town name, have only seen a couple but I do like the look of them. Otters, cats 3D Flags - States/Provinces/Country Unusual

Plain PC, I like something that’s has something interesting on it, so scenic view of a lake or mountains are kind of boring as I live close to Rocky Mountains and in forest with lots of lakes - bit if your writing on the back of them feel free to use I haven’t figured out if it the age of the cards that I’m getting have something to do with that I am fonder of newer PC's. My biggest pleasure is whats written on the back, this is why I got into Swap-Bot to begin with - I get to see an area/or something and then a letter on the back...Love It! Don't know what to say: how was your day • what's the weather like • where do you live, and what's the coolest thing there • family • if you won a dream holiday where would you go • just tell me about you, what's your hobbies...

I really have to bite my tongue on this one, but I send postcards to my grandchildren that I think they would like. They like frogs (choke). Because they know my fear of frogs I find it amusing sometimes to send them a postcard of a frog just to shock them. Secretly I am hoping by doing this they will quit video calling me with a live frog on thier head {SHIVERS - horror stories, ugh}.

DISLIKE:
Chinese Fashion postcards Young children PC's, - grandkids are past that age. Vintage Flower Zazzled Home made Advertising The

My other interest

LIKES:
Letters/note cards
Travel
Otters The Universe
Umbrellas
Zodiac sign: Taurus (The Bull)
Ghost Walks
The weird and unusual.

COLORS: Emerald Green, purple… Just look in a crayon box or the colors around you and you'll see all the colors I love.

PHOBIA - FROGS - although I don't mind postcards of them because then I can send them to my grand-daughters just to shock them. I really have problems with live frogs - serious problems!

Have a great day and keep on with the snail mail :)

Comment: Thanks for the swap. I received the PC for the next round. I hope you enjoy your trip. I hope to some day visit Scotland as my father's side of the family harkens back to eleventh century Berwickshire. We were just about to resume travel, after covid, when the sale and move came up. We are finally actually moving on August 15th. I hope to get in a road trip in the fall.
Response: Hope you get to go, safe travels

Curious question: has someone actually mailed you a live frog before?

Thank you for the story about your phobia! It was a great read! My son laughed and laughed (teenagers sigh no compassion. Though I must confess the aquarium story made me chuckle hard.). However, don't be sad my mother is the EXACT same way with "wormy" things--snakes, worms, caterpillars, etc. It's so bad my aunt STILL tells the story about the old tree in front of my childhood house, that was full of caterpillars. One day, one of those caterpillars made the sad unfortunate mistake of falling out the tree and into my car seat just as my mother lifted up from snapping me in it. Well then the neighbors got a LOVELY show of the crazy hollering and screaming woman tossing her baby and a car seat all about in the backseat of the car while she tried to "save" me from said caterpillar. That I'm not brain dead today, my aunt assures me is a miracle. Needless to say, after that and a few more free shrieking dancing numbers for the neighborhood courtesy of my mother, my uncle was enlisted to come and cut down the front tree (illegally I might added since it was TECHNICALLY on somebody else's land division). Still I survived childhood at least --and the neighbors only shot us a "few" dirty looks over their MIA tree until we finally moved a few years later I'm told.

NOTE: A rating from a swapper 10 months after a swap closed seems odd — that will definitely not keep you out of WIYM group!
