About Me

6/7/21 - Took a break from swapping to clean up swaps but now I'm back. I've messaged everyone that I haven't received from or haven't been rated for and still have 6 swaps not completed. I missed my swapping pals and am happy to be back!

10/10/20 - I'm ready to come back to swap-bot and excited to visit with some old friends and meet some new ones!

8/5/20 - Taking a break from swapping. I've sent out all swaps that I'm registered for, will rate when I receive from my partner(s) and always thank partners that leave a rating. I am no longer tracking down ratings. If I haven't received a rating from you and you haven't contacted me to let me know that you never received the swap from me, I'm assuming that you did receive it, but either forgot to rate or don't rate partners. I always send swaps out the day that partners are assigned, or the next day.

About Me: I've been married for 44 years and have 2 married daughters, 1 granddaughter (13) and 3 grandsons (one 17 & 7 year old twins). I retired in 2018 and am enjoying spending more time with family and watching the grandkids grow!

I transplanted from Montana to the PNW (Pacific Northwest) 35+ years ago and have never regretted it. Can't beat being a couple of hours away from the mountains, the beach or the 'big city' although I do miss the slower living of Montana.

I'm a Seattle Sounders MLS fan and enjoy going to their matches especially now that we can go back into the stadium. Go Sounders!

Favorite Crafts

I love making cards, and other paper crafts, cross stitching and sewing. I enjoy learning from other crafters and seeing their creations.

Over the past years I've been 'collecting' paper crafting supplies and fabric to use when I retired. I'm not at hoarder status yet, but could be close! It's been fun trying to use some supplies that I've had stashed away but never tried before. I would like new ideas to spark my creativity and to see what's new in the crafting world.

In the past I was a SU! demonstrator which built up my stamping collection. I also was a part of Operation Write Home until they dissolved. I enjoyed making cards for the troops and was thankful that one of my Swap-bot friends told me about Cards for Soldiers. I'm so happy to have a purposeful service group to donate to!

I've also been doing online craft classes with One of A Kind on Facebook where you purchase kits from vendors ahead of time and craft along with the instructor on the day of the classes. And I attend Close to My Heart classes once a month. Kristina Baldwin is an awesome instructor!

I like to collect recipes and occasionally try them out. I've made several family cookbooks for family reunions.

Favorite Television

I watch lots of movies and tv but I'm usually working on cards or another project while I'm watching (or I'll fall asleep!) I'm always looking for a new series to watch. Any suggestions? A few of my favorites are: ~ Outlander, ~ Grey's Anatomy, ~ The Man in the High Castle, ~ Marvelous Mrs. Maizel, ~ Better Call Saul, ~ This is Us, ~ The Masked Singer, ~ Survior, ~ Downton Abbey, ~ Call the Midwife, ~ Modern Family, ~ Handmaid's Tale, ~ and the list goes on, and on, and on!

About Me

I enjoy learning about different cultures and countries, and connecting with others. I wish to someday do more traveling.

My favorite colors are purples, blues and greens, but would enjoy any color.

Other favorites are dragonflies, hearts and angels.

I'm allergic to cinnamon, cloves, ginger, basically all of the fall flavors. Unfortunately, no pumpkin spice lattes, spiced teas or spice scented candles for me!

Favorite crafting tools

I have a lot of crafting supplies so don't really need anything more. My crafting likes but I'm open to anything new in the crafting world:

~ Paper! Paper! Paper!, ~ Washi, ~ Quotes, sayings, angel words, ~ Ribbons, ~ Rub ons, ~ Stamps, ~ Rhinestones, gems for paper crafting,

PLEASE - NO GLITTER. Cards for Soldiers requires no glitter. Reason being, they send the handmade cards to overseas troops that may be in the field and one little speck of glitter may make them visible to snipers. I check all cards before I send them, but glitter is really hard to keep off of things.

Postcards

I prefer naked PCs, love that stamped piece of mail. A real stamp (not metered) makes the piece of mail even more interesting. Although I like to collect state PCs, I also like to get a PC that you like so I can learn more about you. No nudity please.

Postage and no shows

If you do not receive something from me, please contact me and I will resend. I understand that all post offices are different, have different hours, some even different days that they work, especially the smaller rural towns. And they misplace things. If you receive something from me with postage due, please let me know and I will more than make it up to you. I can't always get to the post office so use a scale and USPS.com to figure out postage rates and may sometimes not get it right.

I've always believed that health and family are the most important pieces of our lives. So if you are going to be late, please send me a message so I know when to be looking for your item.

I would appreciate if you would give me a chance to make it right and I will do the same for you.

Happy swapping!

SURPRISE!!!

I love making cards, sending cards and RAK. Maybe you'll find a surprise in your mailbox one day!

Comment: Hi! Apologies for the late rate. I thought I already did it. Thank you for the futuristic style postcard of the Needle and other attractions. My friends want to visit there so maybe I might go in the future!
Response: You are welcome. No worries, I've done the same thing. I hope you do get to Seattle soon. Visit in the summer if you want to have the best Seattle experience. other seasons can be grey and rainy. Unless you like grey and rainy. :) Thank you for the rating and heart! :)

Comment: Hi Diana! Lazy weekends are the best. I just started watching Ted Lasso after getting your card - so far I'm really enjoying it! Fingers crossed for Wedington, always exciting when a local makes it big :) Thanks for sharing your weekend! All the best - Alan
Response: You are welcome! My only complaint about Ted Lasso is that the episodes are to short. :) Sadly Wedington got cut at the very, very end of the pre-season. I'm sure he'll land somewhere else. I have a feeling he'll be back in Seattle one day. :) Take care and have a great weekend!

I saw where you had left a 1 for a swap partner and you were so kind in your comment, hoping she was ok. I thought "There's a compassionate and kind person" and just wanted you to know.

Heeeey I just got your card! I love it and will definitely use it! So well made! I’m send mine out this week!

i had never been to a crew (rowing) regatta until my oldest kid joined the crew team, freshman year in high school. And as far as WA is concerned, I have a good friend with two rowers - it's a big deal in the Seattle area. Not sure about sailing regattas though.
