Welcome to my Profile
so it seems
While Rating in 2021 I will give every swap I receive a heart ❤️ Shoot they are as free as smiles. Why not leave a smile on my partners page.
It is SPRING here no more snow
The Following still applies
It’s not flowing they way it use too. Very slow moving mail flow still. Many countries as well as some parts of the USA 🇺🇸 are still experiencing 📨📮Lets please all be kind here 😁😁😀😃😆😁😊😃😀😄😊😆😄😁😃😄😊😉😃😀😆😌😊🙃🙂😊😆😁😄😃😀😘😀😃😁☺️😘😜😉☺️😆🙃🙂😚🙂😊😃😆😁😌😉☺️😆😌😀😄😆 Please, communicate before rating....
keeping in mind the current mail delays may be a factor before you rate down your partner.
I will always read the PM.s sent to me. So please contact me using the Pm rather then email.
No fear I always Rate. My swap bot mail goes to a P.O.Box.I go to retrieve my mail as often as I can.When I pick up my mail and I rate as soon as I return home. Sometimes larger swaps may not fit in my standard size box. If the postal clerk has left for the day, I cannot pick up large mail. The clerk is kind enough to keep it behind the counter for me rather than fold it & stuff it in my box.
. . . I am Not A Flaker , Nor Am I A Non Rater . .
I always rate my partner as soon as I receive. So they know I received the swap. No one wants a swap left lingering in limbo.
is a key factor here on swap-bot.
I can be found relaxing at home.Or out and about with my family & friends. I love to shop at craft stores.I am always on the look out for bargains.
When I am not bargain hunting.I usually can be found snapping pictures or reading a book by the waters edge. Or spending time with my family & friends.That is really what I enjoy.
If I had to choose my favorite color, I would say green.Not Neon Green or Anything Neon.Then my next fave color would be blue, like blue jeans. Also,Earth tones, which are simple & go with just about everything I have.
I also love pink & brown, when paired together.Many shades of green are appealing to my eye.Also pink alone & brown alone.
Purple is nice, all depends on what it is.When it comes to paper & color, the sky is the limit.I use a lot of card stock paper & scrapbook paper.
I Do Not Expect partners to go crazy, looking around for these things to send to me. JUST Expanding My Profile. Without being a pain in the butt. :)
Makeup,Creams,Lotion's,Lip balms, Perfume Etc. Or Anything Scented What So Ever. Most Products give me Mad Head Aches for some reason. With one or two exceptions. I use Essential Oil's from Young Living Inc. I no longer use Scented candles or any other fragrant Synthetics. For some reason I get head aches.
No need to worry,because rarely or if ever sign onto a swap, that calls for these things certain products.Products that are hard to find. I joined swap bot to trade my photos and my crafts. As well as postcard collecting and a few other things I like to collect. Such as used postage stamps and smashed pennies.
Swap bot is about having fun, not stress , no drama... Since I have to be very careful of what I can use & wear.I would never put myself in a situation that would cause confusion. Such as joining a swap that calls for Spa & Bath Products Etc. Cause if I did & my partner read my profile, from top to bottom.They would be confused as hell. Or at least after Reading this section of my profile that is,LOL...

I have a great collection of beads & such. I have made several silver & beaded bracelets, over the years.I spent a lot of time traveling to different bead expo's over the years.No so much now.I use a lot of natural beads.Most of theses are either chips with drilled holes for beading & the rest are kind of small beads also drilled.Such as,Lapis,Brown Agate,Jade,Black Onyx,Rose Quatz,Mahogany Obsidian.I have some Wooded Beads & glass ones also..I use sterling silver clasps & findings.What I bead I give as gifts.Although I have made plenty for people who saw & wanted to buy.I do not use Gold color charms or finding at all.
When I bead with the kids, we use wooden beads,fake look a like Troll & Pandora beads.
Spending time with them...Be it out to dinner or a walk on the boardwalk.Family dinner.Sometimes just talking and taking a walk though a small town checking out the stores together.Also, hanging out with my nieces and nephews.Talking on the Phone to my brother.And spending time with him and his family.With everyone working and so busy.It is very hard at times to connect with my siblings & their families.More so now that we lost our mom to Cancer.I really would like to have more time with all of them.
I no longer use much Gold.I prefer silver.I have a Pandora Bracelet.My family & friends helped fill it with many beads.I have a few beads from Troll Charms also.FYI ... I have seen really cute fake beads at Flea Markets for a buck.I buy them to use when I bead with my niece. She loves bracelets.
