Important Stuff...

Trying to get out of the winter/covid/after holiday/missing my grandbabies funk I've been in!!

Postal Issues:

I have had mail reach it's destination despite having it weighed and checked at the mail counter. If this ever happens, please feel free to refuse or if you pay the difference, I ALWAYS reimburse!!

My word of the year is actually 2 words. "Be Still"

The craziness of last year has taught me to appreciate the simple. To slow down and find joy in the moment. To be happy in Now and not always be waiting for the next thing.


  • I don't rate swaps on extras, I rate them on the actual swap item. It is appreciated, but not necessary to send extras in order to receive a good rating from me! If I send extras in your package, it is because I like to do it and have it at the time to share.

  • In 12 years on swap-bot I have never sent a swap late! NOT that I feel I'm better than anyone else..because I know sometimes life does happen! If something were to ever come up..I would communicate with my partner & co-ordinator!

  • Please let me know if I do something wrong BEFORE rating me, and I will do my best to fix it! Thanks!*


Other Stuff...

So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it"~Willy Wonka

I am a free spirit with an old soul. I love nature, reading, quiet nights at home, and mysteries. I love baking, sewing, crocheting, paper crafting, jewelry crafting, sculpting (not many crafts I do not like).

Just a thought!


On a "Gnome' Kick lately!! I have always loved them but we have now started a collection!

I collect Jokers and Queen of ❤s playing cards. Any of these would be GREATLY appreciated!

Don't cry because it's over, Smile because it happened~Dr. Suess"

Tea and coffee


My newest addiction thanks to @debtea is LEMON CAKE tea!! Oh my!! It tastes just like lemon cake and I cant find it here.

My tea likes are more minty, spicy, etc. LOVE chai! Not a huge fan of fruity flavors but will try anything once!


I am in a lot of groups for several reasons.

They are generally a bit safer than public swaps.

I also have a little bit of crafting ADD! There are so many crafts I love doing and I never know when the mood will hit me to do something different!

Hosting swaps...

One last thought...

I do angel my own swaps that I host, but sometimes it does take me a little while, so please be patient with me!
