About Me

UPDATE 2/20/201:

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contact me first if you haven’t gotten a swap. Do not just leave me a 1. Thank you!

UPDATE: 12/20/2020

Well I finally decided to do it. I got the vaccine 💉 at work. Very sore arm. Hurt so bad to move it and fatigued. But I do highly recommend it. I go back in 3 weeks to get the 2nd shot.

Got the 2nd shot 1/11/21 and had a severe reaction. Severe body aches, couldn’t focus and a fever of a 102. When you get it I recommend taking the next day off work. You will need to rest.

UPDATE: 11/14/2020

I’ve received some 3 ratings recently. My most recent I believe is very unfair. First of all she gave me a 1 because she never received. I had no idea she didn’t receive. She told me she didn’t need to let me know she didn’t receive. Then she received today and gave me a 3. Only reason it was late was because I had no idea she never received it.

I am 44 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 16,14, 13. Married 22 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 but haven’t bowled since COVID hit. 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 junior in high school. The other 2 are on 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.

I’m catholic and attended private school growing up. I went to private school up until high school and went to church every Saturday morning with my Grandma. I’m raising my kids to believe in God and be the best person they can be. I love studying the Bible. I learn or relearn something new every time I read it and go to church.

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 The 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

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 love 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 3 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.

Also recently I have messaged several members and they just don’t answer me back. The polite thing to do is answer. I also don’t understand why members block each other. I can understand if one of the parties harasses the other. I can promise that isn’t my forte. Please just answer a message if sent. It doesn’t need to be a book. Just a simple sentence if need be. Thank you!


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!


For washi tape swaps, argyle & plaids are my fave. Also anything you find unique I would love!

Comment: Hi Shana, I love the Scarlet Star Bromeliad postcard. I bought the whole box series a long time ago and I probably only have a few postcards left from this series.🥰 I took up planting in January and I'm honestly obsessed, I find it so relaxing. I hope you are doing well, take care!

OMFG - I just reread your profile - we're very similar!!!! Do you watch Mystery Diggers or Mini Air Craft Investigations on Youtube? Just watched Captain Sully land on the Hudson on Christmas Day [tradition, LOL], and last year, I gave my dad Sully, the movie. Me and my mom love Janet Evanovich too -- of course, you've seen the movie too, right? I looooooooooove true crime too. So excited to swap with you! <3~
