7/30/2019 I’m taking a break from Swap-Bot for two months mostly due to traveling. I will return in late September for fall swapping (with lots of postcards!). You will still be rated
THINGS ABOUT ME: Hello! I live in Michigan and love it, even the winters.
MUSIC: Classical, New Age, and Easy Listening, 70's and 80's music, but I will listen to all types.
BOOKS: I read about 80 books a year, mostly series mysteries such as Anne Perry’s Victorian mysteries, Peter Robinson, J. D. Robb, and many British detective series. My favorite recent book is The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.
MOVIES: Happy endings like Gifted, McFarland USA, Rudy, Letters to Juliette, The Age of Adeline, and dark suspenseful thrillers like Suburbia, Sanctum, and Perfect Getaway.
TELEVISION: I rarely watch TV, but occasionally watch a series such as Downton Abbey or The Crown. My favorite older TV series were King of Queens and Cold Case. I’m addicted to Britbox and Acorn for British crime series.
CRAFTS: Quilting (I’m currently working on a project making blankets and quilts for homeless vets, foster kids and pregnancy resource centers). One more year for me on that project! -
I love crocheting dishcloths, but I’m not very good at it. They are just for me and it keeps my arthritic fingers moving.
I make my own body and home care products with essential oils....painting with acrylics (abstracts or just playing with color)...making greeting cards. I also dabble in photography.
I am a retired preschool teacher (two-year-olds). I am married to a retired professor and we love going on road trips. In past summers we took Route 66 to California, toured Yosemite NP and all the major National parks out west. This is a good way to collect postcards! We are planning a road trip to the Pacific Northwest via Route 2 in this coming September.
I love to make postcards and vintage-style ATCs. I will do private swaps for these.
Where you live....
big city, small town or village and LARGE LETTER cities, ....
day or night city skylines.
Tourist type, especially if they are of uncommon places.
I would love to receive map postcards or any touristy postcards of Route 66, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Connecticut, and National Parks.
I prefer postcards not be handmade unless swap is specifically for homemade PCs. Same for greeting cards, but I will not rate down for nice handmade. I prefer a photo please, if possible, instead of drawings or cartoons
I would like my postcards NAKED unless the swap requires an envelope.
I read the Profile of everyone I send to before sending. I almost always give hearts because I truly appreciate the effort that goes into a swap. I spend time and effort on every swap I send, even postcards, and I try to make it something you will enjoy or will make you smile.
I swap mostly postcards. Please know that I respect what you have sent and consider it important that you know it has been received. I rate the day I receive.
I’D RATHER NOT HAVE TO ADD THIS SECTION, BUT.... I’m puzzled by silent 5s and silent hearts. When you click on Rate Your Partner it says to leave a comment. Please do that. Just a brief comment. You can even say you didn’t like it! But it’s important to the sender that you acknowledge, in a positive manner, their willingness to take the time to do something for you. It’s politeness if nothing else.
I am very disappointed if I get postcards with worn edges and bent corners. Please save those for the appropriate “get-rid-of-it” Swaps.
I’m asking that you please write more than one sentence. Happy Swapping in big letters doesn’t cut it. Tell me where you got your postcard. Why you like it. What you are doing today. About your family. Your current plans. Give me a reason to give a heart. Fill that message space up with heartfelt good stuff.
COLORS: Love colors and colorful things. Blacks and grays are cool also. Pale pink will make me super happy. Boho prints too.
GENERAL THEMES I LOVE:
sloths... goats... chickens... gnomes... flowers... birds... benches... chairs... windows... doors,
TEAS: Any kind or brand. A swapper sent me Peach Pie tea which was awesome, and I haven’t been able to find it. English Breakfast is also a favorite. I’ll try any tea but green or Matcha.
LITTLE THINGS: I really don't need or want tuck-ins. I will not rate down if you don't send them, even if it's a requirement in a swap. I will be happy that you read my profile!!! However, If you feel you must...... Seasonal and holiday stickers are welcome (any time of year). Unused postcards, notecards, sheets of list pads will be used. I have no need for small pieces of paper.
I will never flake and I rate as soon as I receive your mail. I use a spreadsheet to keep everything straight. It’s always possible to overlook something, so please contact me if something is not right. If you are sending from the USA and I have not received anything from you or have not been rated by two weeks after the send date, I will send a PM soon.
My mail is often picked up as late as 7:30 so the postmark on my mail date may show the following day. I probably will not check a postmark date unless there is something that seems questionable. I am always happy to find your mail in the mailbox.💖📬
Thank all of you great swappers for your nice comments and hearts. You make my day!
