About Me

October 9, 2020 Hi all! I am going to be out of town October 11-14, and will not have access to my Happy Mail, so will rate when I get home. Thanks for your understanding! Hugs and Happy Swapping 😉


My oldest and his family have moved to Colorado Springs, CO over the 2019 Christmas holidays! They are so excited and we have a new place to visit! LOL!


I am married and have two sons & an awesome DIL - I love the thought of scrap-booking and making cards, but have been lacking the energy as of late! Also love reading and meeting new friends through fb or other group sites! Hope I can participate in some of the swaps on this site and make some new friends!

I was in two B-day clubs with some gals in the UK, from FB and participated in a Christmas card exchange as well. I am always amazed at how creative the cards are from these lovely ladies!

When my oldest son left for college in August 2009, I felt such a void in my life, then I got on fb and found the groups I was involved with - I also found fv and was addicted for awhile!!

Now my oldest graduated from college and Army ROTC in May 2013 and my youngest graduated from college in 2017! Time does fly!

I enjoy meeting new people, exchanging cards and pcs with them, as well as going to local scrap booking events and meeting new folks!

So far I have been lucky that any swaps I have signed up for, I have been able to fulfill my obligation. I would hope that would continue.

I am not into drama and will try to send stuff that I think my swap partner will enjoy - however if I miss the mark, well stuff happens! I am very easy going with what folks send me and just look forward to seeing how others respond to the different swaps!

Loves/Likes - My family, Being happy, Hearing kiddos laugh, Being with gal pals, Scrapbooking, Card making, Meeting new people, Love, love, love to read! The library is one of my favorite places!! The beach, Halloween, Christmas, Birthdays! Soccer, Taking pictures, Being able to help others, Being able to laugh at myself , A clean house (with kids and pets, this is a dream of mine!), Traveling, Vacations, Flowers, Learning new things, Taking craft classes

Dislikes- Drama when it is not necessary, People that just need to get over themselves, Vacations that do not work out, Kids being disrespectful to their elders and each other, Car problems, Health issues, Feeling like someone has taken advantage of you or someone you care about, Housework! lol

Ratings - I am very good about trying to rate quickly, so if you sent me something and do not see a rating timely, please let me know! Either I did not get the item or it got mixed in with other stuff!! That does happen sometimes!

Flaked on the Punch Art ATC #26 - touch of Red I hosted: FibreJunky - I pmed and emailed, but have not heard from her - swap was angeled - she should not sign up for any additional swaps I host - grrrr!

Flaked on the Punch Art ATC #33-Two Twists that I hosted:Emawee0307 - I emailed her, as she has not been on swap-bot since the day she marked sent, but her partners have not received anything - swap will be angeled, and she is banned from my future swaps - dang this is getting old!

Got flaked on for the Postcards for Sonya - GingerR - how sad this was a RAK sort of swap, so...

Got flaked on the What's for Thanksgiving Dinner? PC swap by teamtiredfeet - what a drag! How hard is it to send a dang pc?? ;(

Flaked on by @Ratatatat in the My Sept 2016 - EDITED swap - this was a bummer as it was a bit time consuming as it covered a whole month - so... The host is angeling the swap with her Oct info.

Swaps

I love all postcards - have a soft spot for vintage postcards but really have not met a postcard I didn't like! LOL!

I would love to receive some cute address labels and could exchange pcs for them! If you can help me out, please send me a pm!

Not trying to be a pain but am cutting way back on international swaps - especially pc swaps! Between the cost of postage increasing and having to resend pcs overseas - it has just been a pain for all! I have really enjoyed sending and receiving from the overseas swaps, but need to make cuts, so... Hopefully everyone understands!

Comment: I am somewhat sheepish and selfishly delighted to say that I'm in a retirement park with no kids, so we don't have to do anything for Halloween! We did it for decaaaades at our house, and I am not sad that we don't have to hang out by the door for three hours, popping up every 5 minutes to hand out candy. We switched to give out mardi gras beads and small toys many years ago so we could buy in bulk and put the extras back in the basement til next year. No more running out of candy or having 100 leftover tiny Mars Bars. Now I have 400 leftover necklaces but no trick or treaters!

Comment: Thank you for sharing your grievances with me and thanks also for the washi samples those are kinds that I don't have at all so where did you get them if you don't mind me asking at all :)
Response: Hi! I’m glad you liked the washi but it was a sample someone shared with me and I have so much, I shared it with you! Wish I had more information to give you. Hugs and Happy Swapping 😉

Comment: What I wouldn't do to go inside the library? Ours have been closed since March 17th. We can do curbside pick up, but I really miss going to the library and I miss book club too.

Comment: I didn't receive this but mail has been absolutely insane these past few months so I'm giving all my missing swaps a pass, no need to resend. Hopefully USPS will get its act together before ballots need to be returned!
Response: Hi-thanks for rating w/o the swap being there-mail has been a hot mess lately! So annoying and hopefully it will show up shortly! Wishing you all the best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! 😉

Comment: Thanks for the cute card! I'm not really into all the scary stuff, either, but none of the family is, so no teasing - from them! :) In our area, they are setting up a driving maze/haunted house car ride type thing rather than the traditional haunted house and things like that. I think we might have trick or treating, but with special restrictions. We'll see!
