December 2020, iv decided after being here for 6 years, that I can assert myelf a bit! And by that i mean Iv decided to only give hearts out when a swap indeed.... moves MY heart!

Dont misunderstand, I greatly appreciate all swaps, and will rate accordingly, but i dont see the credibility in throwing one together so haphazardly that you dont even know who you are swapping with. Also, i can assure all senders that if you dont include my name anywhere inside a swap, no ♡♡ . Iv always up to now, been very generous in rating, but when i get something that feels more like a rushed mindless mess, well,...you get the point.

I'm updating my profile as a lot has changed in my life the good and the not so good.

First off, my vision is not what it use to be and I'm mentioning it here for several reasons,. If I send or post typos, please forgive me as keyboarding is now a challenge at times as is proofreading. Also, if you do write to me in any swaps, PLEASE use large handwriting so I can appreciate your efforts.

The good changes is I have opened my ETSY shop and would love for you to peruse around. I make stuffed bears, aprons, small bags, lavender sachets and other giftables. Mainly I strive for vintage looking, and feminine items. Check me out at homespunpretties on Etsy.


So, with making items for sale I will love receiving any buttons! Especially the sew through kind. And decorative types.

I have really been having fun randomly reading others profiles! This is such a great group of diverse, caring, and fun people! I am amazed at how many include 'extra' items and go to the effort of trying to match up something in a swap, regardless of how small - that a person's profile indicates they enjoy! Please feel free to leave me some wall art! I can't seem to figure out how to put pictures in my profile? Help ideas are welcome!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Very excited to find this site! I think I will find some great swaps to join. I am a mom, a grandma, and work full time, I live in central NY state and enjoy homemaking, cooking, reading, quotes, animals, all thing vintage, Victorian England,I love reading cozy mysteries with a setting in England, love all things Italian also.

I enjoy motorcycling, have my own Harley, and love to talk to others about the subject, especially women riders like myself. I have ridden for over 11 years, and am on my third bike. That being said, I really don't like the "Harley Momma kind of stuff", that is just not me. Also, my name being -Deborah, always seems to present an issue with people, that just can't seem to get it out of their mouth...." I am just not a DEB! But people can get away with Debbie. (lol)

I enjoy Scrabble, and prefer words over numbers, if that tells you anything. I love magazines that feature the arts of homemaking, Country Life, Romantic Homes, The Somerset group, Taste of Home, Victorian Tea, and others. I like to sew and make my own crafts when time allows. I love our local library, and enjoy taking my grandson to event's there.

I really enjoy getting mail- REAL OLD FASHIONED MAIL !!! How fun it is! How much more personality and true individualism comes through! It makes the day to receive a note, or surprise in the mail from a like minded person, for sure.

I have been having a lot of fun with making my own envelopes, and finding washi tape ideas - sewing little items, and Pinterest! Exploring different themes lately, especially Alice in Wonderland, Faeries, flowers, and shapes. Enjoy making my own address labels, and like to include some in swaps with your info too! It makes a fun item to swap when a fav like is put in a picture .

I love the simple pleasures of life such as a beautiful sunset, the birds singing in the morning and evening, the clouds, fresh fruit, buttons, vintage postcards, doilys and linens. Getting mail in the mailbox verses electronically!

I am a coffee drinker, and love my Keurig, and love tea also, mainly English black tea.


Im happy to shar with you all my brand new ETSY shop!

As some of the type of swaps here are very new to me, I may 'miss the point' and am glad to re send or make up a faux pas on my part! Thank you for all who answer questions and clear up the swapping language for me! I am just thrilled at the overall positive, helpful, and generous attitudes and actions I have been exposed to here at Swap_bot!

No effort to respond to swaps, I like to think that each and every swap is unique and special, and deserves some effort and thought put into it!

Rate, Ratings, Raters,

My rant on raters, Come on you guys! No one likes the feeling of NO FEEDBACK. If we take the time, expense, and care to send out a nice swap, and then.....NOTHING. WHO LIKES THIS?? NOT ME!! and then, of course, comes the second guessing-was it received? was it lost? did they forget? Should I resend? Will I get a bad rating even though I followed the swap rules to a TEE and mailed on time???

I guarantee you, unless I am disabled by an outside force, I WILL RATE YOU.

Please do the same for me! If we are able to read and write and create swaps, get to the Postal Office, and mail, then we are able to click on RATE!!
