I haven’t swapped in awhile ... I’m still here. 😊 May 2020!
I'm Wendy and I have a washi tape addiction. I am a spunky court advocate and I work as a CPS social worker. I have been married 25+ years. I volunteer for the food bank and work with the homeless coalition in my area. I live on a homestead and look forward to raising some animals soon. I have a sarcastic, quick wit and enjoy friendly fun banter. I love cards and quotes that resemble my remarks. snort. I enjoy kayaking, hiking, and extreme sports and events. We are a patriotic family -so anything patriotic/folk art americana is appreciated. We are a non-smoking household.
I belong to many groups because I like variety.
I am explaining my loves here in my profile so you have a good sense of what I enjoy. It's just a guide, not requirements. There is nothing better then receiving a gift that someone put effort and energy into creating for me. I enjoy reading profiles and sending a few extras to make people smile. That's why I swap. The surprise is fun. I hope you send me a few lines and let me into your world a little if you are my partner. If you are reading this and see a swap I might enjoy, please let me know.
I save stamps from swaps, if possible try to use stamps. xoxo. I love decorated envelopes, they make me smile.
I enjoy private swaps- don't hesitate to ask.
I am learning to become as self-reliant as possible. I love canning, dehydrating, gardening, quilts, traveling, scrapbooking, candle making, kayaking, kickball, home improvement/DIY projects, baking, and cooking. I love my perennial beds. They are filled with yellow, red, pink, blues and pops of orange. I enjoy annual seeds to bring life to my perennial beds that are filled with metal stars.
