If you are reading this, then you know I have some "ones" on my profile. I'm not making excuses, but I want to try to explain why I have them. First of all I took on too many swaps. (THAT was my own fault and also was my first mistake!) Then I got sick and almost had pneumonia and was barely able to do anything but lay around. So, needless to say, I got behind. REALLY behind!! Well then it was during this time that I changed shifts at my job and didn't have so much time to work on my swaps. Ending with FAIL here on Swapbot. ALL of my swaps were horribly late and I was overwhelmed. But NOW - my schedule has somewhat changed back to where I have more time and I will never again take on more swaps than I can handle. I also want to add that I am making my way through the swaps I still owe and that my partners have so far been so wonderful and understanding. I appreciate all of you so much!! So I will end here. I just wanted to let everyone know why I have the score I do. Thank you for reading!
I'm married and mom to two beautiful daughters. They are both grown and married. Jess and her husband, George share a house with us and it works out great for all of us. Amber recently split up with her husband so her and my beautiful granddaughter Chloe are living with us too! Chloe is two and is definitely "Gwammy's Girl!"
SWAPS: I love to swap things. I used to be hot and heavy into pen palling, but not so much anymore. I would be interested in doing private swaps of recipes, I absolutely love recipes and have a huge collection of them!!
HOBBIES: Love doing counted cross stitch. I crochet on occasion and I like to read. My have several favorite authors including Mary Higgins Clark, Carol Higgins Clark, Dean Koontz, Kathy Reichs and Lisa Jackson. But honestly, I enjoy any type of mystery or thriller. I have a Kindle and I have the Kindle app on my phone and tablet. I love it!! If anyone is looking for free books for your Kindle, I belong to a Facebook page that lists over 20 books a day that are free. Here is the link if you would like to join it: https://www.facebook.com/EreaderNewsToday I have tons of books that I got from them. I hope you enjoy it!
I love to watch TV and have a lot of "favorite" shows, but my VERY favorite show is Criminal Minds.
I collect and swap postcards. My favorite types of postcards are motel postcards. Especially the older ones from the 1940s on up.
OTHER LOVES: Some other things I love are: Coffee, Stride Gum in the Winterfresh flavor, blank journals or notebooks, gel pens, composition books, mailing supplies, address labels made just for me, bookmarks, stationary, note cards, burned movies, candles, Christmas, Maxine items, Ed Hardy items, old recipes and cookbooks, old letters and diaries, office supplies, wind chimes and much more. My favorite color is red. My second favorite color is green. I am a Hello Kitty fan. I will add to the list as I think of things.
THINGS I DON'T CARE FOR: Torn, dirty or broken things, anything with a rose scent or otherwise heavily floral sent, dark chocolate, any kind of tea, hard candies, sour candy or gum, reward stickers, shoddily made FBs, pencils unless they are mechanical pencils, slam books and Sponge Bob. Also, I am NOT a scrapbooker, so please keep scrapbooking items down to a minimum. I don't mind getting something every now and then, but please don't make my whole swap scrapbook based. I also hate garden gnomes and I'm not real fond of clowns!
