Important Stuff...

3-29-20 Please note that although I normally rate the day I receive a swap, it will be a few days after I receive my mail before I open and rate. I am being extra diligent due to having an auto immunity disorder. I am taking extra extra caution on any mail I receive. I know it may sound extreme but this could prove deadly for me so I'd rather someone be mad at me for rating late as opposed to the alternative!

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!

  • 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! 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!*

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).

Just a thought!


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

  • Love to read & watch murder mysteries. Cozy mysteries. I especially love British mysteries.

  • I have Trypophobia - which is a phobia about patterns with small holes. I have had this my whole life, but did not know there was a name for it until I was in my 40's! 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!!

Finally found my postcard collection from storage!

I do prefer postcards sent naked..but am really happy with anything! Just ask one thing-PLEASE date your postcard!!

Postcard interests:

  • Map cards
  • Greetings from:
  • Vintage

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 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!


Comment: Thank you for the super cute TM inspired patches and the little bird ornament! I'm so glad that I introduced you to a new craft that you're so fond of. They are very fun to make and so addictive. I need to get my big ole bag of patches out and see about getting my friend to make another bag for me with them. Take care and stay safe!
Comment: Awesome selection! Can't wait to make you an ATC!!

Comment: Thanks for the Paste and Paste PC. Love the collaborative idea. Smart to put the swap number and date in the written part. I didn’t think of doing that individually and just mailed mine out. Oh well! Idea for next time. I love your Swap-Bot business card too with the swap name and your SB name. Genius! Thank you for the pretty gelli prints too! I also find printmaking addictive. LOL Adding more now that I got a second one from you. Thank you for the super cute tropical papers. I love the under the sea PC you started. I will pass it on in the next round.
