Important Stuff...

1-8-20 My baby girl is getting close to giving birth to her first baby (#7 grandchild for me!) If I go missing for a few days..I will be back on as soon as possible!

I am always willing to do private swaps for:

  • ATCs
  • Memorydex cards
  • Journal cards
  • Altered Index cards
  • Altered Business cards




  • 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 11 years on swap-bot I have never sent a swap late! 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!*


I am in a lot of groups. Sadly I find it safer swapping that way. Although groups don't totally prevent flakers, it does seem to help a little!

Mailing Swaps:

MOST of the time I take my mail inside our little PO and have it weighed. However, if its something I know is fine with 1 stamp (postcards, occasionally ATC, etc) I will put it in the blue outside box. I do mark sent after putting it in the blue box. Just an FYI in case the marked sent date and cancellation date don't match up!


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).

I love to draw, sketch and paint. Not the greatest but I enjoy doing it.

Some of my sketches I scan into computer then manipulate it digitally. Sometimes I prefer this look over my original drawing...depends on my mood!!

Just a thought!


  • I am working on a project featuring ATC or Twinchie size Alice in Wonderland & one featuring Nursery Rhymes, in the same sizes. If in doubt what to send, either of these would be perfect!

  • I'm also working on acquiring an APC deck in Alice in Wonderland theme. Thanks!

  • I have recently begun collecting Jokers from playing cards. Any of these would be GREATLY appreciated!

Hosting swaps...

Tea and coffee


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

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

ALSO *if you are RUDE and DEMANDING I will NOT be angeling anything for you!

Comment: Morocco sounds like it would be an exotic town, not tiny one lol. Ours used to be small, it's boomed exponentially in my lifetime. Some of us miss the small town vibe, others are happy about the growth. Everybody complains about the traffic. 🤣

Comment: Hello again Dana and thank you for your great colored PC! Did you use a gel pen on it too? I love using the gel pens. Esp. the glitter, metallic, and metal ones. So much fun with them! Yeah, I don't always like how the colored PC's turn out either, with the colored pencils. i wasn't satisfied and decided to go completely with gel pens. Oh, Me too, love going into the Young adult fantasy section of book stores! Young adult have more to offer, than the grown up books. Guess I'm still a child at heart, hee! Have a wonderful day!
