Just to let you know, I do rate when I receive swaps. I am only picking up mail about once a week, because of Covid. Thank you for your patience!

I always send swaps and rate as well! If you don't receive a rating, I probably didn't receive the swap as of yet or it was lost in the mail. I will contact the swap partner if I don't receive something in a months time, before I rate a bad rating. Life happens and this is to be a fun experience, not a stressful hobby.

f you don't receive a swap let me know before giving me a bad rating. I don't flake, so message me first!

I like collecting postcards from other places that show the person's town, historical place, flowers native to that area, scenic postcards, and local foods, lighthouses, snow capped mountains, covered bridges, famous buildings, and countryside, I like Lantern Press and Zazzle post cards as well!

If you are from Canada, I am interested in your local area, National Parks, Lighthouses, and anything you can recommend to visit in your country!

Wish list for a gift: Mrs. Grossmans Create Your Own Sticker Art. Any book she offers!

Also, I use to love the Invisible Ink Yes and Know books. You know Ages 8-88! Any of these would be fun! I recently remembered these and thought that would be fun to have being at home a lot more or even for this coming winter!

I like to journal as well! I am starting to get into Bible journaling as well. I am always looking for stencils to use in my Bible. I do not draw very well, so stencils will come in handy. Of coarse any verse stickers or washi is always welcome!

note cards, stationary, stickers, washi tape rolls

pen pals(I really like chatty letters too!)

travel(anything to do with your area or country)I like beaches with the mountains in the background. I like Maine coastline, the west coast especially WA and OR, and the Great Lake Region. I also like Lighthouse are interesting along with Covered Bridges.

Tea cups and teapots(anything with tea cups or teapots on it )notecards, postcards, stickers

Drinking Tea and Hot Cocoa! I love Peppermint, Peach, Plain Black tea, and ones from English Tea Shop. I new one is Green Tea with mint as well. I also love Southren Sweet Tea in the summer.

My favorite candy is Chocolate anything! I love Lindt, but any Chocolate. I am not a big fan of food coloring like candy, but do like M &M's. If it is more natural Food coloring candy like found at Trader Joe's than I am ok with that.

The country life(old rustic barns, chickens, Jersery cows, bikes with baskets, pictures with an old truck on them like the Walton's truck, picnics ) Sunflowers too Any note cards, stickers, with these items is great as well.

I like to eat ice cream! Ice cream stickers are great too! Or any note cards, writing paper with ice cream on it.

I like to read Christian Fiction on Mysteries, Romance, Biographies, homesteading stories, tea books, devotionals, and well anything you think I may like.

learning about other foods and cultures

I like all flowers! I enjoy fresh flowers on the dining room table. I love flower gardens but mine aren't like the professional ones. Some of my favorite are Sunflowers, Tulips, Roses, Star grazer lilies, and Lupines.

Favorite colors that I like: Bright Pink or Fushia, Lime Green, Sunshine Yellow, Purple, Navy, and Red,

Favorite room colors, I like cream, light brown, so I can accent it with a brighter color. Accent colors purple, reds, greens, blues, and yellows.

About Me

I enjoy traveling around the USA, but would love to travel abroad again someday. Since traveling is expensive, doing swap-bot can help knowing other from other countries and the USA.

When I was a in grade school, we got a pen pal from another local school. That is where I learned to love have pen pals. Than I went to camp and learned more friends to write too. That was back in the day of no electronics. In High School, I got my first try at an international pen pal.

I am a wife and mother to 3 children.

Send me anything listed here:

anything from another country

tourist books

Frig magnets


Christian Fiction books you have read and liked, Biographies, Non-Fiction books on Flower, Herbs, picture books showing your area, inspirational coffee table books

I have Book 1 of Mysteries of Martha's Vineyard, by Ruthe Logan Herene A Light in the Darkness. I am interested in reading the rest of this series. I also would enjoy reading more of these type books by Guideposts. I haven't dove into these because I only discovered them.

Thank you for the sweet note about homeschooling. We are homeschooling David. I think we have settled on Time4Learning for the remainder of this year, but we shall see.

BusyB on Jan 14, 2021:

Hi Jo! Thank you for the snowman happy mail. I got a kick out of the magazine snowman stories! It always snows in Oregon in the mountains but not always on the "valley floor" where we live. Like this winter, so far anyway.

CPG January wishlist

Animatarian on Jan 13, 2021:

Lady Jo, Thanks so much for the thoughtful card you sent, your messages and prayer are so what I needed. My surgery has been re-scheduled, we'll see, the number of Covid cases keeps rising so it may be canceled once again. I know God is in control and that there is someone He wants me to meet while in the hospital, pray I recognize the opportunity!! Thanks again, Patty B (animatarian.... Christian Friends)

Swan on Jan 11, 2021:
