About Me

PLEASE NOTE: If I mark a swap as being sent and that day has no mail delivery, it's because I put it in a USPS box by our mail room (which is right down the hall from me).

If it's not in the box by the time the mail comes, it doesn't get picked up till the next day so when I put a letter in the box in the evening or on the weekend and it shows marked as being sent on a Sunday or the prior day is marked sent and the postmark shows the following day, this is why ...

I mark sent as soon it goes into our USPS box because I'm afraid if I didn't, that I'd totally forget and wouldn't mark it sent at all. Old age? Perhaps! lol

Hi! My name is Debi and am a 63 year old Christian woman and I would love to hear from anyone who was born on that exact same day, which is May 8, 1956. I've looked for years but as of yet have not found anyone on that exact day.

A bit about me, I'm divorced, have 2 kids who are grown and on their own and also have 7 grand-kids and am a GREAT-Grandma to Jax and Kayden and baby Madilynn was born @ 12:06 a.m., Oct. 25, 2018.

Besides my kids and grand-kids, I have a very spoiled cat named Kyla, who turned 9 on July 22nd [Yep, that's her in the picture below!]

Well, she did and she didn't (turn 9, that is) 'cuz ya see, I've always heard that cats age 7 years to a persons 1 year and if that's the case then, Kyla turned 9 , so - times that by 7 and voila! Ky and I are both now ... 63! LOL

No fair, she looks far better than I do at this age! Ha! Ha!


Seeking Business Cards

I am just starting a new hobby of collecting Business Cards but after a very short time I realized that I need to be selective in the ones I collect.

There are a few specific categories that I really want to collect now and those are:

  • Any and all law enforcement business cards

  • Any and all U.S. military business cards

  • Any sports related business cards

Aside from these, I'd also love any dance related business cards (such as from ballet studios and such.)

But, if I had my choice - by far I would much rather have the law enforcement and the military cards!

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!

Favorite Crafts

  • Plastic canvas
  • Bullet Journaling
  • Smashbooks
  • Junk Journals

I also love vintage photos as well, especially the regular sized pictures of anybody [don't worry, if the photo isn't identified and you don't know who the person is ... I'll give them a name. LOL]

Now, can you just see my daughter going through junque journals after I'm gone and seeing someone in it named Uncle Dan or Aunt Isabelle and her sitting there wondering why I had never told her about them.

Then she'd wonder what side of the family and hey, maybe even look at other family pics trying to find similarities to her "new kin" she didn't know about. Ha! Ha!

Maybe I really ought to tell her about the pics and make sure she knows any in the junque journals and such aren't gonna be family pics. (Hopefully I'll remember to tell her .... lol)

I love paper crafts and have a hard time throwing any papers away and though I have a lot of papers [many bits and pieces], I still would welcome any sent. Love cute pictures!

My Likes & Dislikes

  • Postcards [or pictures] of carousels

  • Would absolutely love and treasure any postcards of: Swansea,MA; Gone With the Wind; Carousels and any on the Royal Family, Downton Abbey or those that might have a writing in a different language on the front!

  • I would love a card from Yulee, Florida if anyone were to have one!

  • Pretty cancelled stamps

  • Anything on or about the Royal Family [especially Princess Di, William, Kate and the kids and or Prince Harry and Megan and their babies (when she has them, that is!)

I really have no special love for Price Charles or Camilla so would not like anything about them.

  • I absolutely adore fine nibbed fountain pens and writing with them! Nope, I'm not hinting or asking for any because I have plenty of them, but just throwing in here with my likes, how much I love writing with them. I'd never used one until December 2015 and I immediately fell in love the minute I put the pen to paper!


  • Anything with skulls

  • Anything dark or evil

  • No adult themes

Private Letter Swaps

I love doing letter swaps but due to postage, I limit those to people here in the US.

Please, if you love writing letters and ...

  1. Aren't a flaker

  2. You write more than just a "note" [to me, actually ... any letter under 5 pages front and back, to me ... IS "just a note"!]

  3. Have legible writing that I can read [Lord, I know I sound picky but there's nothing worse than getting a nice letter to read but you can't make the words out and it happens far more than I would ever have thought it would. It's very frustrating!

    ... Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to do a one on one letter swap with me.

I love getting letters from those who put some thought or effort into their letters as I do and I guess what I mean by thought or effort is that you ... write a long enough letter.

It doesn't have to be written about anything in particular and in fact as for myself, I gab about anything, everything and sometimes even nothing at all. LOL

Oh and also, I'm just not one to like short letters, and even less is liking ones with huge writing that are trying to just fill up a page and are saying nothing in the process, just to hurry and get a swap completed. And of yes - that does happen as well.]

Some Helpful Tips

The following is copied from my friend, Karla's swap-bot page (she's no longer @ swap-bot), sadly to say so I thought I'd borrow these and put on my page so I can get to them quicker when needed.


Here on Swap-bot, you will probably always use stationEry with an E. Stationery with an E is writing materials, as pens, pencils, paper, and envelopes. If it helps, here are some ways people remember which spelling to use.

Remember that just like writing letters, we also write e-mails. E-mail begins with the letter E ... so since we write letters and we write e-mails, remember the E in e-mail and use the word stationEry.

Also ...

Let the E in StationEry make you think of an Envelope!

Think of the word StationEry because it means pEns and pEncils.

The alternative, stationAry is ONLY used to describe something that is not moving, still, staying in one place or position, immobile, or not changing.


If you want to trick out your profile, with links, pictures, etc., here is a helpful post from Swap-bot's blog. Click here.

Thanks go to @tiggerkitn25 for this link to an assortment of characters you can copy and paste into your profile, swaps, groups, and posts.


Just enclose the URL in parentheses and then use whatever word you want to make clickable (for example "link") and enclose it in brackets right before the parentheses'd URL. So if you wanted to say "Here's the link" and make the word "link" clickable, just enclose the word "link" in brackets (don't use my quotation marks) and immediately after the word in brackets, put your URL which is enclosed in parentheses.

Just remember brackets then parentheses.

So, it's like this (now, right below this is an example). Okay - there is a space between the ] at the end of where it says link and the first ( at the beginning of the http://). To make this work, you have to take that space out. I didn't do it here because if I had, it would have done it and I wouldn't have been able to show you how to do it.

[link] (http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/163848)

With the space taken out between the end bracket and open parenthesis, will give you a clickable word "link".

For those who haven't done and want to try it out, you can try it in your comment section on your swap-bot profile page!

Comment: Thanks for the cute letter. I will tell you what my diabetes educator told me. Don't buy it, then you can't eat it hahahaha. I have been snacking a lot more lately and I am trying to get out of that habit. That is my goal for the coming week (this was my first goal swap). Happy Swapping!
Response: Good luck this week with our goal (I say OUR goal because we're sharing one and the same!) You're so right, don't buy it and ya can't eat it ... sure wish it were that easy. LOL I actually bought a bag of apples yesterday and consider that a snacking win for me this week. After all - it's only myself and the cat here and Kyla (cat) won't eat them so I guess I'm gonna have to or waste the money I spent in buying them. lol (I hope this coming week I'll have a loss to show for it!) Thanks for the 5 and the heart!

Nnyla rated for Scripture Postcard #6 on Sep 2, 2019
Comment: Sorry for the late rate. My fun mail has been sitting in a stack it seemed I could never get to! Thank you for the beautiful floral postcard. The postal machines "wiped off" the words at the bottom, but the flowers are untouched. The scripture is spot on. I need it going into this week of meetings! Summer ended for me a month ago, so it really went by too quickly!
Response: As they say, better late than never ... thanks so much for the 5 and the heart. And, so glad that the scripture is one you needed. Have a good week!
NRGordon rated for Tell me about your Town/City on Aug 31, 2019
Comment: Thanks for the very fine swap. Lots of interesting information. The National Railroad Register, from a few years af=go, indicates that only the OC&T is operating in your town. It interchanges with Conrail just north of Oil City. So one line you see must be the tourist ride and the other their freight operations. They list several customers. Your town sounds like a worthwhile stop on our road-trip to Cleveland next year.
Response: Neal, thanks so much for doing the swap with me and for the rating as well. As long as you're interested in the oil discovery and the train ride, it's a great place to visit! Also they have a Caboose motel where you sleep in train cars which have been made into hotel rooms. I've never been in one but think it's a cool idea!
aspens rated for Good-bye to Summer Notecard Swap on Aug 30, 2019
Comment: Aw, that sounds SO peaceful to have sat in your backyard and watched the baby deer! Thank you for sharing!
Response: Hi! Yes, it was peaceful (but the sad part is, I think they've moved on because it's been probably close to a month since I've seen them.) Thanks so much for the 5 and the heart!

The verse on the bookmarks 1 Peter 5:7 really is a blessing to me. It was a memory verse of mine way back when I was a young Christian.

Fritosmom on Jun 1, 2019:

Hello again, I received your wonderful letter and goodies. You are very kind and thoughtful.

Quick and Easy Profile Message Swap-- Hello Debi, It was interesting to read you live in Titusville. My grandmother's sister lived there here entire adult life and my grandmother also lived there with her on and off at times. I remember seeing the photos and hearing the stories about life there. I liked hearing about the Amish they would see from time to time. I hope you have a lovely New Year's 2018!!!!

TereDiane1954 on Apr 18, 2016:

I got your nice long letter today, Debi. (When you write a letter, you don't mess around with three lines, do you?) I enjoyed it so much! And I like the brochures about the history of Titusville and the fun things there are to do. Many thanks, and a big hug♥
