About Me

01/11/24 - Hi all! I will be out of town January 12-14th and will not have access to my Happy Mail - also the 15th is a US holiday, so no mail that day.

My husband is having knee replacement surgery on January 16, 2024, so things are going to be hectic for several days - I will do my best on getting things rated and commented on ASAP. Please be patient with me, as my hubby is not the best patient, and I am an impatient nurse, so... Prayers for all, please and thank you!! ;)


11/28/23 - Hi all - I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and thank you for your patience on me getting ratings posted! We had a fun trip to CO to see family and I came back with a cold or something, so I am a tad slow on getting stuff done! I have rated everything I have received at this time but I know the mail is running slow, so we all have to be patient! All the best! Hugs and happy Swapping! ;)


11/18/23 - Hi all! I will be out of town from November 19-26 and will not have access to my mail or computer - celebrating Thanksgiving in Colorado Springs, CO with family - yipppeee! I will not get my mail until Monday, November 27 - I will rate and comment on swaps that week. Thank you for your patience and Happy Thanksgiving! ;)


10/27/23 - Hi all! I have rated everything that I received while out of town - thank you for your patience! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


10/23/23 - Hi All! I will be out of town from Tuesday 10/24 through Thursday 10/26, and will not have access to my mail or computer. I will rate when I return, as well as handle any messages received. Thank you for your understanding! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


10/15/23 - Hi all! Had a wonderful trip with the hubby and fur baby! All the swaps I received have been rated, including the electronic ones. If it is not rated, it has not been received as of yet. Thank you again for your patience! Hugs and Happy Swapping!


10/07/23 - Hi all! I am going to be out of town from 10/08/23-10/14/23. I will not have access to my mail or computer; however, I will rate and comment on everything I receive when I am back in town! Thank you for your patience! If I have swaps that come due before I am back, I will mail them along the way, fingers crossed there are no issues! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

05/25/23 - Hi all - I have rated everything received while I was out of town! Thank you for your grace and patience while I was enjoying my Yaya time with Jemma! She is 15 months old, busy and a tad loud, like her Yaya! LOL! All the best! ;)


05/16/23 - Hi all - I will be out of town from May 17-24 and will not have access to my Happy Mail. I will catch up on ratings when I return after the 24th. Thank you for your grace and patience while I’m enjoying Yaya time with Jemma! ;)


03/16/23 - Hi all! I am caught up on ratings at this time and I appreciate everyone being so patient with me! Had a wonderful time in CO and my Granddaughter was so much fun! She is a busy baby and I am pretty sure she gets in at least 10,000 steps a day! LOL! Thanks again! ;)


03/07/23 Hi all! I’m finally heading to Colorado Springs tomorrow to see my Granddaughter and her folks and will not have access to my Happy mail until after 03/14. Thank you for your grace and patience while I’m enjoying Yaya time with Jemma! She’s one already-how?? Time slow down please! 🤗✌️🤗


1/12/23- Hi all! I’m going to a scrapbooking/crafting weekend and will not have access to my mail until Monday, Jan. 16. I will get everything rated as soon as possible, thank you for your grace & patience! Hopefully I will get a ton accomplished but…. Lots of visiting, laughing, and eating at these events, so…😂😂😂


Hi all, our sweet Granddaughter (Jemma) was born today - 02/19/22, and I am over the top excited to be a Yaya for the first time! Thank you everyone that has been patient with me chatting about her in my swaps - it might get worse before it gets better! LOL! Please be patient with me! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


Moved our youngest son to Crete, NE in October 2021 and we are empty nesters again, except for Miss Greta Mae, our fur baby!!

It is so strange just being the hubby and fur baby here, but we will adjust in time - I guess...


We adopted a puppy (Ms. Greta) on March 9, 2021, and I forgot how much work they are! LOL! She is a sweetheart but I am way older than when we have had puppies in the past and my Mom eyes in the back of my head seem to be gone, so I have to watch her like a hawk or she is into stuff! LOL! This too shall pass and I am enjoying her puppy silliness & all the love she has to share! Thanks for your understanding if I get behind on rating or commenting on your ratings! 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 and a Granddaughter, who will hopefully call me Yaya when she is really talking! I love the thought of scrap-booking and making cards, but have been lacking the energy as of late! Also love reading (murder, mystery, and mayhem!) 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!

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 (this is a dream of mine but I am a bit of a clutter bug, so...), Traveling, Vacations, Flowers, Learning new things,

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!

Comment: Thank you for the great postcards. Ireland is on my dream trip list for sure. The Biltmore castle would be cool to see as well. If I ever hit the lottery I’d never be home!! I’d always be on some sort of adventure! Hope you’re having a great weekend!
Response: Hi Ruth! Thank you for the sweet comment, rating, and heart! I am with you on the winning the lottery and never being home! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Very cool fold n' seal! Thank you. I enjoyed your letter. I hope your husband has more good days than bad days soon! I know how that is. My hubby has Valley Fever and he has the "one step forward, three steps back" thing going on. He is getting better overall, but very, very slowly. It has been nine months.
Response: Hi! So glad you enjoyed the fold n seal, I was so happy when my friend remembered to send them to me! LOL! The hubby is still so-so but hopefully he will get serious about do the exercises at home, since his range of motion was not good this week - sigh! I have never heard of Valley Fever and when I looked it up - yikes! And he has been dealing with it for nine months, double yikes and you are a saint! Sending big hugs for both of you! Thank you for the sweet comment, rating, heart, and for joining the swap! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Your lovely vintage PC arrived today!! I read Remarkably Bright Creatures, loved the twist but I was kinda let down at the ending. Still a good book and one I won't forget. xxMuggleMom
Response: Hi Toni! I am so glad this pc made it to you and that you have read the book I recommended! I so loved this book and have recommended it to so many folks! The ones that tried to listen to it on an audio book said they had a hard time with the voices - I so hate when that happens! Thank you for your patience on receiving the pc as it seems to have taken the scenic route to get to you! Thank you also for the sweet comment, rating, and heart! All are appreciated! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Response: Hi! Thank you for your sweet comment, rating, and heart! We are currently in the stage of healing, where it seems like one step forward and five back, but he will get there! I so appreciated your sweet comment! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
