About Me

Secretary of Sunflower Harbor Homeless Outreach. Starting a home for Vets and displaced people has been my dream and I'm finally living it! Click my website above to check us out! There is a link on our website to our cashapp.

I live in Snyder, Texas now! If you live nearby me and are interested in meeting for crafts, let me know! I have some friends who meet once a month or you can come over for tea and crafts just you and me.

I absolutely adore postage stamps with people on them!

I resorted recently as Slytherin, so you may use this, also.

About my 3 ratings. They are all fair ratings. I have made up the swap I didn't send and resent 2 that I trusted someone else to take to the post, but the swaps were sent over a year late, a year and a half in one case due to communications and negotiations.

I've learned my lesson and plan my swaps for bordelaire type intrusions now.

November 2019 We did it! We are opening an outreach center for Vets and the homeless! It's been a lifelong dream of mine and we are finally in a position to do it! We still stay in the RV where visit family back home, but we've moved to a house and have another house and 3.5 acres to expand to as we grow our outreach.

JUNE 16, 2019 so excited! I can see to read and for GPS in the car when I drive! They did cateract surgery and one eye near vision and the other far vision. Best we could do without spending an extra couple grand. It's fantastic! I gave up a bit of debth perception, but totally worth it!

Retired from being a live in caregiver. Miss it, but I do not miss the insecurity of homelessness being around the corner all the time.

Doing delivery work when my health will allow. Diagnosed with sjogrens. Explained a lot! But now trying to learn to live with it. More recently they added fibromyalgia to my list of problems. Not sure what to think of that. The only problem I have that doesn't seem to cause problems is my diabetes. I laugh and joke about it all a lot. Not everyone gets the jokes. Especially not my doctors. Dr. Stoic face grumpy pants especially. I rarely see him. I always request my primary instead. Just had cataract surgery which was amazing! Seeing is still trippy to me.

I'm also an online tutor, guest lecturer and syllabus creator for a homeschooling co-op.

I have 3 sons, 2 daughters, 14 grandsons, 2 granddaughters.

Lots of bonus kids.

I rescue pups, so the number fluctuates. Currently, we have 4.

Jazz, my service dog keeps me happy and healthy. He's a black lab and is trained for diabetes and PTSD. He absolutely loves stuffed gray elephants. If you send him one flat, I can stuff it here.

Looking for

Want to trade junk journals, mail art, flip books, pocket letters, and always looking for new creative outlets.

If you are new, PM me with the kind of swap you'd like to do. I'm always up for helping new swappers get established.

If you are a seasoned host and like a swap I post but don't want to join because the timing Is off or my rating too low, or you need something changed, please post your own swap. Copy any part you wish. Invite me if you'd like. I create swaps to do the swap. I don't necessarily want to host them, though I will so that I can play. If you see a series I do and want to take it over, do so. Hosting is hard work. I do it willingly and lovingly, but always willing to share the work!


Comment: I got it today! At first glance, it looks so fun. The first day of school is tomorrow so I’m looking forward to some quiet time, some tea and driving into your writing. Thank you so so much!
