Hello everyone♥

"Winners focus on winning. Losers focus on winners." ;)

Hi, I'm Diane and here are some general things about me as a person. I'm a pluviophile which means I love rain/thunderstorms. I feel that my energy calms and balances during times of either. I'm also a Libra so balance means a lot to me.

I represent the best HP house ----> Slytherin.

I am a hockey fanatic who loves photography, music, postcards, and all animals but especially polar bears.

Comment: A shark swam into my PO box today! WOOOOO!!!! I love your penmanship, it's so pretty. Thank you for the sharkity shark! I did not have a bonnethead in my collection until just now :)
Response: My heart is so warm. I was hoping you'd like it. The penmanship is always such a worry because holding things with my right hand hasn't been easy since my stroke BUT it won't keep me down so I try extra hard and go slow to keep things legible and hopefully make my partners smile. I'm glad you were my partner and that you love sharks too. YAY! ♥♥
Comment: Dear Diane, thanks for hosting such a fun and inspiring swap! Got your envie today, can’t wait to go through all the fun little notes. Thank you and happy swapping!
Response: Thanks for such a great rating and for being a part of such a good feeling swap. xoxo♥

Comment: This is the BEST swap I ever done! Thank you for hosting it and sending the quotes. I really enjoy this swap! I didn't read them yet (waiting for all of them to arrive) but they are ready in my jar. I'm sure that a quote will be helpful when I'll be struggling (and it happens a lot). Thanks for trying to make the world (and at least mine!) a better place =) Btw your letter wasn't arrived until today, so it wasn't picked up yet and I just found it in my mail box after a looong and unpleasant air fligh. Your letter was a beautiful gift that made me smile! =)
Response: I am humbled by the rating. Thanks for your kind words and enjoying even the thought of the swap. It means so very much to me. ♥♥♥♥
Comment: Thank you for my pieces of happiness 🙂 And I loved the rainbow washi tape 💜
Response: I figured a happy swap deserved happy washi tape :) SO glad you like it. Thanks for a great rating! ♥

AddictWithAPen rated for Postcard for Postcard. ♥ on Mar 19, 2019
Comment: Thanks for the postcard, I love it so much ! I’d totally be ok with doing regular postcard trades, that would be cool ! I’d say my favorite character in Supernatural is Dean but I also love Lucifer, Crowley and Rowena a lot
Response: Yay! So glad you loved it. Let me know if you want to start the regular trades or if you want me to. I'm super bummed this is the last season of SPN coming up soon. :(

Response: I'm so excited that you loved the PC!! Yeah, chocolate and I just aren't good friends. I'm a sour and salty girl. Give me pickles and Sour Patch Kids.

This is Us - return in September!

Bhindblueeyes on Jul 18, 2019:

Early fall! ::fingers crossed:: Humidity is currently kicking my butt out this way, lol. Mum and I are going to a conference - it's a short trip, but I do hope we will find time in between or after "classes" for other stuff. Is Branson a decent area? I've never been to MO. The hotel gym only has like 2 or 3 treadmills so I know I'll probably have to go outside, just wondering if it's decent and if I should be "home" by a certain time :)

Bhindblueeyes on Jul 16, 2019:

Uggggggh, that is NOT the answer I was hoping for. Humidity and I are not friends. I think I get in on the 12th, leave the 15th or 16th.

Bhindblueeyes on Jul 14, 2019:

I'm going to be in Branson in September - what should I expect the weather to be like??
