About Me

UPDATE 4/24/2020: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know if you haven’t received a swap. PLEASE don’t leave me a silent 1. With the way the world is nowadays, Mail doesn’t get to you like it used to. Just please be courteous and let me know it hasn’t arrived. I’m more than happy to resend with tracking.

UPDATE 4/19/2020: if you do not receive a swap from me, please contact me first before rating. I’ve had several items returned to me lately either because of wrong postage ( I take them to the PO to get weighed ), wrong address or for reasons that don’t make sense to me. I will promptly get it resent to you. I always send my swaps and I always rate. Please let me know if I “misremember” to rate you.

I am 43 years old. I’m from Nebraska in the USA. I have lived here my whole life. I am a mom of three boys. They are 16,13,12. Married 21 years to my high school sweetheart. He’s an Air Force brat and was born in Alaska. We’ve been together for 25 years. We met through our high school bowling league and are avid bowlers to this day. I’m a respiratory therapist and I work two jobs to support my boys activities which include bowling and baseball. All 3 play. The oldest is a sophomore in high school and plays on Varsity. The other 2 are in select travel teams. Paper Crafting, swapping, scrapbooking, reading and pen palling are my outlet. I like to think I’m a creative person. Sometimes I have a hard time coming up with ideas. But when an idea hits me, the paper and glue starts flying!

I’m an only child. I was raised by a single mom and had my grand parents there to help. My grandfather was my Dad growing up. He’s the reason I’m a respiratory therapist. Both of them are gone now and my dad is finally in my life. I’m a forgiving person and life is to short.

Favorite Music

I listen to 80s and 90s primarily. My kids are always asking what the heck I’m listening to. I also like to listen to country. I have to be in the mood to listen to country. I ❤️ Blake Shelton and Rascal Flatts. I’ve seen them both several times and I’ve met Thw Flatts twice. I once went to 2 straight shows back to back nights. I almost made it 3 but didn’t have anyone to go with on the 3rd night. Rap isn’t my fave @ all. I do like some Eminem. I listen to most anything though.

Favorite Books

When I was a kid, I grew up on Nancy Drew, Boxcar Kids, Bunnicula, Sweet Valley High. I just loved to read in general. You would always find me with a book in my hand. Now I love mysteries and crime books. My fave is anything by James Patterson. If I want a good laugh, I read anything by Janet Evanovich. I just love her too!

Favorite Movies

Disney Disney Disney!! Beauty and the Beast And Up are my favorite Disney movies but I like most all Disney movies. I’m a HUGE Tom Hanks fan. Forrest Gump, Castaway and Sully are a few of my faves of his. I also ❤️ Save the last dance and Dirty Dancing. I do love watching horror but have yet to find a good one lately. I’m not really one for a chick flick but do like the occasional “Feel good” movie. I tend to cry easy so I tend to try and avoid those movies unless I’m alone. LOL

Favorite Television

The Deputy is my new Fave show. I used to watch Manifest but I lost all interest bc it wasnt going anywhere. I’m still looking for a new sitcom to watch If you have any suggestions please let me know. I love binge watching Fuller House on Netflix. I enjoy watching AGT and seeing all the talent the world has to offer and wish I could do what they do. I live watching Anything on ID. True crime shows always spark my interest. Amazing all the crazy crap that goes on in our world. Other shows I enjoy are Air Disasters ( yes I know it’s twisted — don’t want to fly anymore ) and Seconds From Disaster ( again a little twisted ). 2 shows I could also sit and binge watch would be Bones and Friends. Man, I drooled over Ross!!!

Favorite Crafts

I found paper crafting 2 years ago when I was looking on Pinterest for bullet journaling. That is when I found my new ❤️! Pocket letters, ATCs, Memorydex cards and flip books are what I love to make the most. However, I am always open to learning new crafts!!! I’ve made some altered items like paper clips and clothespins. I love mail art as well. I try my best to make my outgoing look good.


I strongly dislike anything from a Smokey household as I’m allergic. I also don’t like those who are not honest. If we don’t click, please tell me.


I enjoy receiving any postcards. I’ve recently fallen in love with postcards and don’t have a very broad collection so any are welcome. If you’d like to swap postcards, please message me. I’m open to it!
