About Me

11/02/19- Hi all! I am back from vacation and have rated everything I have received! If it is not rated, I have not gotten it yet - sorry! Hugs and Happy Swapping! πŸ˜‰


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: Received your note card today, first I have to comment with beautiful cards they have and with beautiful little snails you included, thank you. No I have not been to Vegas but we are planning kind of bridal shower with a young girl who was a big part of our family. So it's going to be her mom, two of our daughters and myself and the bride. It's going to be a surprise for her, like a girls family vacation and we are so excited. She's like another daughter to me, I even included in picking out the wedding dress, her mom and I spent a lot of time crying that day. Our youngest daughter is a maid of honour, they been best friends since they were 2 and are now 27, so she also got to pick out her maid of honour dress the day before, it was a very special day. Anyway we are going to Vegas, pretty excited! I hope your health is good, bstrong and think positive, I have learned it the best way to get through the process of this disease. Live Life To The Fullest.

Comment: Thank you for the "trees" photo project swap. We have gotten some color in our trees but not a lot yet. I'm afraid they may all fall off when we get some windy, rainy days. Sounds like the weather for trick or treating will not be good. Thankfully I don't have to be out there. Sorry for the late rating.

kpfree rated for UHM: Send Me a Letter about CHANGE on Oct 21, 2019

Comment: Thank you Vicky for sending me over your swap. I felt that your change was indeed something not to want or to expect. I am sending you healing as i think about you as we never know what is coming down the road do we? Sometimes nothing we expect. So glad that you are doing better. I raise my own food organically in the summer and i just finished my 5th summer doing it. This summer was hard though as i have been doing it all. My friend who helps me was too sick this last summer to really help me. Growing the fresh organic food meant so much to me because of all the stuff we can ingest that harms our bodies. I am not sure if people really know what they are eating if they are not buying organic and trust the people who say it is organic. I hope that you will be ok and it is true we are what we eat! I have changed my eating in ways that when ii was younger i would not have believed it but most things i do not eat these days and i cook my own food pretty much. One thing i always eat is a green salad. I also think healing thoughts and encourage others to do it and pass it on. I will think of you and see you being healed and whole as you move forward. Bye for now! Thank you again your letter was really inspiring. I had had a rough summer myself but nothing like what you shared! BLessings! Be well!
