About Me

Hello all,

Back from a summer break. Hosting a few swaps. Come and join in the fun!


October 2019: Only one piece of mail has gone missing, so that is an improvement. Still no word from the Postmaster even though I have left him a message to contact me. Still waiting.....

17 Aug 2019: Still no word from the PO about missing mail. It is still happening. Frustrating.... Not sure if they will contact me IF and when they discover the reason why mail is going missing. Sure would be nice though.

8/2/19 : I have been having an issue with my outgoing mail going missing. I have resent several swaps and those have not arrived to their destinations either. Not sure what is happening, as I have verified with the recipients their addresses, and the addresses were correct. I have contacted the PO, and they are going to look into the issue, but who knows what that will bring. Please contact me if you have not received a swap from me, if I haven't already contacted you. I am more than happy to resend a swap due to this happening. Thank you for your understanding....


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

I have started collecting the Franken Deck of playing cards here on SB, which is really been quite fun! It is interesting to see what kinds of cards I get...

I live in Minnesota and I dislike winter (the cold, snow and sleet) so swapping helps me fill the void of the short winter days and long 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 don't have any food allergies that I am aware of, which is great! I like chocolate and have discovered I have a sensitivity to it. This is not an allergy. 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.

Favorite Movie: Hamilton. Excellent movie!

I love to listen to podcasts. Mostly true crime. I listen to a variety of podcasters including Northern Frights, Small Town Murder, Criminal, Unsolved Murders|True Crime Stories, Unresolved, just to name a few. Some are serious and some are done lightheartedly. All are good, and all do not disrespect anyone who has died.

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. Also, I sometimes put things in the mailbox at night and mark the swap sent, so it won't be Post Marked until the next day. So keep that in mind.

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.

POSTCARDS: I have collected quite a few to try to match up what possible future partners are interested in. What I would like sent to me are PC's such as something you have no use for. However, I am not interested in Ad/Free/Dirty (soiled) PC's. The PC's could be cartoon, funny, strange, "What the Heck?"-type, something you just don't know what to do with. Please don't send your PC's from another state that you don't live in. I have a ton of those.

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 the Harry Potter house colors and NFL team colors. It's very relaxing and fun to do!

I have also gotten in on the dishcloth swaps here on SB. I have received very nice dishcloths here. I hope mine are well received.

Flakers and....

And non raters......

Comment: Mahalo Miss Brenda for the sweet card and extras! I am a little partial to Maui - my Mom was born here and I raised my boys here. We have family all over and my son will most likely be going to Oahu for college. Oahu is too busy and city like. Maui and Molokai are my favorites. Mele Kalikimaka!
Response: You are most welcome! May you Master the day and Happy swapping.... thanks for the heart rating.....It must be heavenly to live where it is warm.... I am so over winter; every year it gets harder and harder to do...
