Important Stuff...

9-1-20 Once again, I have had mail reach it's destination with postage due, despite having it weighed at the counter! Please let me know if this happens, I always make it right! Thank you!!

3-18-20 This past week I had 2 pieces of mail that reached their destination with postage due! This was despite the fact that they were weighed and checked by our postal clerk. If this happens, please let me know and I will rectify this!

Also, when I have a package they scan it as delivered even if I've not yet picked it up. They are only open from 12 to 4 so sometimes with work it is hard to get there when they are open. Oftentimes I have to wait until Sat morning.

  • 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...

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!


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

My family just thought it was me being "weird"!. Due to this - please don't send any patterns similar to honeycomb. Thank you! HOWEVER-I would never rate someone down for this!!

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!
