About Me

I am a sah/Mom/Grammy. I have 4 children--3 grown up with families, 1 teen. I have 10 grandkidlets. Last, but not least---I am married to the love of my life--we have been married for 43 yrs. We are both all about family. During covid 19, that has been the hardest thing for both of us--not seeing and not hugging our family. We are beginning to get together again, but we are all being careful.

I have a wacky sense of humor and very eclectic tastes. I once convinced my youngest daughter and oldest granddaughter (they are the same age) that they were part robot as a 2 week long April Fool's joke.

I am a Christian and a children's Sunday School teacher--but that doesn't mean I don't have fun and don't have a sense of humor---I think my sense of humor and wackiness are 2 of the gifts God gave me---it helps even out the shyness/introverted part of me! I don't mind receiving religious items.

Favorite Music

Contemp. Christian, 70s, pop, classical, jazz. Ithink I'm pretty well-rounded (well, in more 'weighs' than one)!!!

Favorite Television

I like to watch shows on Netflix and Hulu. I'm currently watching Grey's Anatomy, The Good Doctor, Bless this Mess, Dead to Me.....I watched Virgin River---but am not too happy with the changes they made--it's very different than the book. AND.....yes, I watched Tiger King! I like to think keeping current keeps me young!

Favorite Crafts

I like a lot of different kinds of crafts. All of the easy kind! I like to decorated matchboxes, make bookmarks, make magnets out of tiles. I just bought 9 pocket sheets--and am trying to get up the nerve to try pocket letters.

I love any crafts that others make--there are so many artistic people on Swap-bot.

Some of my favorite things

I LOVE to read! I especially like thrillers/suspense. I like true crime, some chicklit. To say I am an avid reader---would be an understatement. I am in a reading challenge for 2020 to read 185 books.

I have been a member of Swap-bot since May, 2007.


matchboxes--decorated or undecorated


postcards---vintage or not, written on or not-I like 'em all. I also like vintage postcard booklets from the 50s, 60s (?) , they fold out and have several cards attached, I have recently found postcard books on Amazon--that have lots of postcards in a book. I love those,too. I really enjoy touristy ones--my all time fav are ones with motels on them (60s style).

Stickers! I have been sending lots of stickers to the kidlets in my Sunday school class--for the time we haven't been able to meet.

Birds---my 5 1/2 yr old grandson and I really enjoy watching birds.


Embellishments---all kinds


gel pens and Sharpies

I am currently on the Keto diet and would love to get some fun recipes.

I like tea towels, fun kitchen goodies--my kitchen is decorated in apples, but I like everything.

I collect Rag Dolls (would love paper or stickers of Raggedy Ann & Andy or other ragdolls)

Buttons!!! I like to fill jars with buttons

Pretty paper

I love holiday things; especially Christmas

Washi tape

things with Smiley faces make me happy! Lip balm....little notepads or notecards; I know some people don't enjoy getting individual sheets from notepads--but I like those, too.

I always love anything from my Amazon WL--most of it is books because they are my fav--I keep it up-to-date---used books are fine.

Flower seeds, plants. These are just a few of of the things I love---I love getting anything in the mail because I love surprises so much!!!

I always rate right after I open the mail---please remember to rate me, too. Thanks bunches!

Comment: Beautiful cards; love the Rainbow Fish card. Thanks!
Comment: Thank you for the awesome postcard! My husband and I have also had the chance to visit the Arch and go to the top of it 3 years ago! An amazing experience but I do agree, if you're not fond of small, tight spaces..this would be a challenge!
Comment: I'm in love with my new pocket letter stash! It's like you had a stash of things just for me, haha! I love the stickers! The cat magician card sticker is amazing. It's all amazing! My favorite thing I've received in a swap. Thank you so, so much!

I prefer my mashed potatoes with peas. :D I kill my plants too, which is why I have an aloe plant. If I forget to water it for two months, it doesn't die! Oddly, my grandfather taught me that vinegar and newspaper trick when I was a kid! I like funky socks too!

Thanks so much for the card you sent. It came on a day that was hard for me. I never thought I would lose my moma and grandma so close together. I was with Grandma the day she died. The day mom passed my brother followed the ambulance out to her house and I drove to the hospital...was hoping she had just fell and bumped her head.. In fact she had a heart attack..Anyways thanks so much for the support. Karen
