About Me

05/01/17 Just found out our oldest, DIL and the grandpups will be moving to Melbourne, FL - he got a great job offer - whoop, whoop! So excited for them - they are ready for the next adventure this life has to offer! ;)

04/21/17 I am beside myself with happiness! Our oldest son, DIL and grandpups are back in the US for good! Whoop, whoop! The family was together for Easter and I loved every minute of it! Life is good!


I am married and have two sons & an awesome DIL - I love the thought of scrap-booking, making cards, and ATCs, 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 have participated in several ATC swaps on another site and very much enjoyed it! It is fun to see how everyone can do something different with the same theme!

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, that 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 is in college! Time does fly!

I enjoy meeting new people, exchanging cards and ATCs 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, Making/swapping ATCs, Meeting new people, Love, love, love to read! The library is one of my favorite places!! The beach, Halloween, Christmas, Birthdays! Having 4 day work weeks and 4 day weekends!, 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, Summertime, cuz my kiddos are out of school - so no homework to hassle with them about! lol, 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: Thank you very much. I collect beer packaging, particularly from craft beer 6 packs. i.e., not Bud, Michelob etc. Saving the one you sent.
Response: Hi! I am so glad you enjoyed the chunk! Is it bad that sometimes I encourage my guys to buy a beer so I can have the packaging? LOL! Thanks for the nice comment and rating! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Thank you for the card and note. I don't really do anything for Cinco De Mayo. We got rain the last few weeks but nothing like Missouri . Just enough that it messed with my Sons work schedule as he drives a dump truck.
Response: Hi! I just found Cinco De Mayo stamps at the post office, they are so cool! I am sorry about your sons work schedule, all that rain has been crazy! TY for the nice comment, rating, heart and joining the swap! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Guess who showed up in my mailbox today!

This time I'm sending it back to you caged in an Envie!!!!! ;~)

Hi Vicky! I probably won't commemorate St. Patrick's Day in any way. I usually forget to even wear something green! I'm just no longer too cognizant of when holidays are, and never much in the right mood for going places on them!

But if you go, I hope you have fun! :-)
