About Me

2/15/2019 - Well guys, I guess it was inevitable...I finally received my first "3" rating. This, unfortunately, is the last straw for me. I have dealt with unreasonable swappers in the past, but this by far was the worst. Not much you can do if the swap organizer agrees with the negative rating. I always send homemade and store bought cards UNSIGNED so that you can re-use them. Apparently, this was cause enough for the "3" rating "card was unsigned". The card and extras were sent internationally which cost quite a bit in postage. I was asked to "resend". Why should I pay more postage and risk the swapper not liking what I send once again? Oh and by the way, they said they "enjoyed the extras". Really?

I have decided to take a break from swap-bot after my last swap. Hopefully the admins will offer a swap where I can get rid of this "3" rating.

Have fun guys! Adios!


I am a mother of 3 originally from Carlisle, PA now living in Harrisburg, PA which is the capital of PA.

I love learning new languages, especially Russian, and traveling. I love cooking and watch the Food Network and the Cooking Channel TOO MUCH! If I buy one more cookbook...!! I love BBC America and the Masterpiece Mysteries on PBS like Sherlock Holmes and Poirot. I love the Doc Martin series too! I just binge watched The Detectorists and Murdoch Mysteries. I love Bull, Madam Secretary and NCIS New Orleans. I am quite the Anglophile and also love all things about the royal family. New Orleans is my fave city.. Cuba, Germany and Japan are my top 3 fave countries.

Dislikes: CATS! Sorry cat lovers!

I would love to receive postcards with hometown themes. I love all colors...Frida Kahlo is my favorite artist. I also love African American art and Hello Kitty. My favorite musician is Prince.

I love animals, dogs and birds are my favorites.

I am Catholic. I have respect for all faiths and appreciate others that do as well.

I love art so I am not offended by nudity as long as it is in good taste - no pornography.

I love handmade cards but I appreciate the time it takes for someone to shop for that special commercial one.

I love altered art such as collages and other altered art. I love altering books and plan to learn how to make journals, particularly art journals.

Oh and I LOVE TEA!! Especially Green, White and loose tea but occasionally I come across a great tea bag! Don't particularly care for fruity teas.

About Me

Favorite Music: Prince, Sarah Vaughn, Buena Vista Social Club, Omara Portuondo, Ibrahim, Ferrer, Jill Scott, Ledisi, Nancy Wilson, Jimmy Scott, BB King, Nina Simone, Cyndi Lauper, Annie Lennox, Sting, Tina Turner, Adele, Duffy, Chaka Khan! Smokey Robinson, Slanty Eyed Mama

Favorite Films: I am a lover of films so my list is rather extensive. I particularly love foreign and independent films. And I also love classic B&W films. I must mention Cabin in the Sky and Carmen Jones, Like Water for Chocolate, Run Lola Run, Amelie, Chocolat and the Harry Potter series.

About Me

Favorite Books: I love to read...this list will always be a work in progress.

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Water for Elephants, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, The Book Thief, She's Come Undone, Kinky Gazpacho. The Girl Who Played with Fire...(read the entire Stieg Larsson series), The Cuckoo's Calling and anything by Maya Angelou, Montaro Caine by Sydney Poitier, The Cha-Cha Babes of Pelican Way.

Other Stuff

Truthfully I love stickers, but my favorite stickers are alphabet, Hello Kitty, flowers, quotes, patriotic, foreign languages, handmade. I LOVE LOVE LOVE KAWAII STATIONERY!!! :-) Actually, I love all things Kawaii! :-)

Comment: Swap was otherwise as supposed to, but the card was to be written a note inside for me, and it was empty. I contacted her and gave a change to resend, but she doesn't. Swap rule said: "Write a short note inside the card. Maybe include a nice quote, talk about your Valentine's plans or maybe a special Valentine's Day that you remember." In this swap I wanted to read that, have a card for me, not have an empty card. I felt like taking part in a letter swap, and getting empty paper, and sender expecting me to give 5 for that. // By the way, you _asked_ if I liked the extras, so I only answered that. In your text above in your profile you make it sound like it's a bad thing, when I only politely answered your question. (These extra items were also supposed to be in the swap, so it was no "extra-extra", and even if it were, no extra stuff ever influence my rating.)
Response: Feel better now? I hope so! Life goes on!! Get over it! This is just a game!

The coins arrived for our private swap. Thanks for doing this with me and for adding to my coin collection. Hopefully your postcards won't be too long in arriving.

I'm glad you liked it, I wish I knew where to get more stickers. I stole it out of the box my best friend gave my kids that was filled with stickers from her childhood. I have no idea where she got them from.

Just received the postcards for PH: Postcard Tag. Thanks - they will all be going into my collection.

I just got a chance to open my gifts today. I want to thank you for the gift you sent to me for the Fill My Stocking - Feb Swap. Thank you for the yarn. I love the sparkly in it. I will be using it to crochet a hat and scarf for a snowman project I want to do. Thanks again and thank you for joining the swap!
