About Me

Waving HELLO from Ontario, Canada! I enjoy swapping and it's been fun getting swaps from all around the world!

I am just putting this out there for my swap partners, new and old. I always send my swaps out on time. It's just worrisome for me when my swaps don't arrive even AFTER I resent, that people seem quick to rate a 1.

I seem to have the WORST luck with the postal service and my swaps either get lost or damaged. I DO re-send, always, so please don't think I have forgotten about you. If something comes up, I notify my partners to let them know.

I do my very best to send my swaps because I know what it is like to wait for something to arrive. Sometimes my swaps my take longer than expected but if you don't receive it please let me know and like I mentioned above, I will gladly re-send the swap...again and again...


I am a mom to 3 teenagers; a 19 year old son, Aaron and 17 year old twin daughters, Marissa and Amanda. I have been married to my husband for 23 years; we met in college.


We have a home full of pets. 3 cats named Maggie and Jingles and Bella, a fuzzy rabbit named Oscar and a dog named Sam. We are animal lovers!


*nice warm mittens

*magnets from where you live

*stickers(-can't get enough of them! But not teacher/religious/sayings on them)

*hot chocolate

*any beauty item(lip gloss, nail polish, etc)

*hand/body lotions


*colorful envelopes--home made is cool.

*address labels(nothing fancy--can never have too many!!)

*candy-I will try anything once so don't hold back!

*warm fuzzy socks

*pens of different colors

*different coloured paper for printing or printer paper with designs

*product samples of any kind--soap, make up, perfume, shampoo, and so on.

What I LOVE!

My very FAVORITE holiday is CHRISTMAS! I love anything about it. Baking, decorating, the different scents (vanilla, cinnamon, pine, etc.), music, movies, wrapping, shopping. I start decorating in November, which drives my husband mad.

You can send me anything for this holiday.. . *Christmas cards


*tea towels

*wrapping paper




*gift tags

*candy related to Christmas(minty)



*cd's of Christmas music

and so on, the list is endless....:)

What I like to do

I love to write/type letters and am slowly getting many interesting pen pals.

I love going to demolition derby's, and any form of stock car racing (on dirt tracks). I also love going to the fall fairs. Although I don't go on the rides all that much anymore, I still enjoy going and seeing the different booths that are there.

I love to read, when I do have the time. My favorite writer is JR Ward. I like reading the whole vampire/werewolf books. Although I do read other authors.

Comment: As much as I hate to do this, I have to mark this swap a 1. I have not heard back from you and I do hope all is well. I will most definitely re-rate once the parcel arrives and/or I hear from you. Its almost a month since you sent it out.
