About Me

I'm in my 50's. I love receiving snail mail. Some of my favorites are ATC's, PC's and anything zentangle!

I live in Minnesota and I dislike winter (being cold, snow and sleet) so swapping will help me fill the void of the long winter nights. Summers are too short, and full of bugs. lol The humidity gets to me and thankfully not too many days have high humidity.

I like to hang around my house and spend time with my 6-year old female chihuahua named Charlie. She is so cute! She is a rescue and I got her when she was 6 months old. She was so timid and very shy and scared of everything. Now she is more sure of herself, but still gets scared easily. She gets nervous around children.

My sister and B-I-L have moved to Wisconsin and they have a house on the lake, and I like to visit them and relax there, whenever I can.

I don't have any food allergies that I am aware of, which is great! I love Chocolate, the more the merrier! Lol. I also like to have my daily cup of coffee and a relaxing cup of herbal tea is always nice. Iced tea is wonderful, too. Especially on warm days. Who remembers the old commercial "Take the 'Nestle Plunge' " and a guy with a glass of iced tea on a hot summer day would fall backwards into a pool? I didn't like tea in those days, but I sure do now!

Favorite Music

I have an eclectic taste of music, however I do not like most rap or any head-banging music.

My favorite artists: Def Leopard, Garth Brooks, Billy Idol, Martina McBride and nature sounds and most everything in between. When I am in my "creative zone", I like the background noise to be soothing and non-intrusive.

Favorite books and Television

My bookshelf is full of goodies! I have the Harry Potter series, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Water for Elephants, The Clan of the Cave Bear series, Reiki books and many Bibles. Plus so much more!

I don't watch a lot of tv. I can go a couple of weeks without even turning it on! But I do own two, one in my living room, and one in my bedroom. I mostly watch in the mornings for the weather. In the evenings, I do catch a couple of old game shows on Buzzr, such as Password+ and Sale of the Century. But if I do miss them, it isn't a big deal. They are from the 80's after all.

Swaps

Swapping with Me: I will try to send out my items as soon as partners are selected, but if something doesn't make it to you, please let me know BEFORE rating. I want to make sure that you get the items! I want HAPPY partners. I keep a close watch on my swaps, and I usually will contact my partner before she/he contacts me concerning any possible mail mix-ups/hiccups. I will gladly re-send the swap to you. I would rather you receive two items than none at all!

PLEASE RATE UPON RECEIPT OF A SWAP....if all requirements of the swap are met, you must rate a 5. That is required of ALL swaps.

If you're going to be late in sending out a swap, I'm very understanding, so let me know. Communicate with me and we'll work something out.

If there is postage due on a swap I sent you, please let me know, and I will reimburse you.

I really love doing the Found Image swaps here on SB. Totally fun to search for items of interest.

My ABC's for swaps:

A: ATC items. Aquamarine.

B: Blue. Brown.

C: Coffee. Love it and drink it daily. Charms. Colored pencils and pens. Cardinals.

D: Die Cuts/Cut outs.

E: Elephants. Embellishments of all kinds.

F:

G: Gems. Gnomes. Green. Gold.

H:

I:

J:

K: Kites. So pretty in the sky.

L: Lavender. Lilac.

M: Magenta.

N: Note cards, new or homemade. Napkins. I like the interesting variety.

O: Owls. Cool animals. Orange.

P: Postcards: Love Vanity Fair, Master Painters (Monet, Manet, Renoir, etc, unknowns, as long as the pics are fabulous, etc.), cute and funny. B & W are good also. Not big on scenic, unless its required of the swap.
Postage, New or Unused, unique. Purple. Pink.

Q:

R: Red.

S: Stationery. Silly things and sayings. Stickers to use on envelopes to mail out.

T: Tea. No black or green tea, please. Although I do like them, I am unable to drink it. :( . Tiny things. Themed items. Trading cards, made by you or someone else. Themed tissue paper. Turtles. Teal.

U:

V: Violets. Violet. Violins.

W: Washi Samples. Woodland creatures (Pictures of). White.

X:

Y: Yellow.

Z: Zentangle. Zines.

PLEASE DON'T SEND:

Teacher/Reward Stickers. I have no need for these.

Dislike: Sloppy work. If you wouldn't want to receive it, neither would I.

Collections and Crafts

I like to Crochet. I have made tablecloths and many, many doilies along with stuffed toys for my kids and grandkids. I have made quite a few wrist warmers and have even sold a few. What has been particularly popular is Harry Potter house colors and NFL team colors. It's very relaxing and fun to do!

ATC's; I am finding I am enjoying making these very much. They are a fav of mine! I am going to try many different mediums. I am not much of an artist, at least I haven't considered myself one in the past, but people who visit me have enjoyed seeing what I've created so far. hehe.

Zentangle; I discovered it here on SB almost 2 years ago and I checked out YouTube for a swap to see if I could actually do it, and was instantly hooked! I have made myself a book filled with samples of the different types of tangles, and had to move to a 5 x 7 drawing book I've had for years (I can't draw) to add more zentangle samples along with the zentangle names. I love doing them. Can't get enough!

Notes to self: these are for me only to keep track of my swaps.

Comment: Thanks for the card and the stickers. One of our holiday traditions is watching certain movies--Fantasia, The Hogfather, and Wil Vinton's Claymation Crhistmas (starring the California Raisins). And playing lots of holiday music, including Bob Dylan's holiday album. After listening to that a couple of times, you're ready for the new year. Susan (brooklynbunch)
Response: You are most welcome! Your traditions sound wonderful and fun... Happy swapping to you....

I just wanted to reply to the letter you sent with the Thanksgiving card swap...I'm so sad to hear about your dog Kayte. Her tag will be a cherished part of my collection. I have an old glass canning jar that I keep them in. I don't know why, but they just mean a lot to me. We just lost our dog Larry-Boy on Oct. 5th. He was almost 18 yrs old. We got him at 8 weeks too. He grew up with my kids & had a great life. It's so weird not to have him around. Take care :)

Thank you so much for the lovely package that you sent to me for the Halloween WTA in the $1 SA group! I love the witchy kitchen towel, the candles, postcards, labels and ATC backs you enclosed. Very thoughtful and appreciated!
