About Me

** UPDATE 2/21/2019 ** I have had the privilege to host several swaps. I've only been in swap-bot two years but I have had so much fun and have made many friends through the swaps.

I WOULD NEVER FLAKE ON A SWAP. NEVER. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A SWAP FROM ME - PLEASE CONTACT ME. but PLEASE give me the time to respond. I work full time, have 10 grandkids that I spend time with often, my husband is a pastor and therefore, I'm involved in lots of evening activities. BUT I WILL NOT FLAKE ON YOU. As a host of swaps, I have "angeled" for others who for whatever reason didn't get their swaps in time or ever.

Please remember "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." (Plato)

I am a happy mother of 5 (blended family) with 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Crazy! I'm 63 years old and like to think of myself as a free spirit. I've been a scrapbooker, a stamper, a knitter and NOW .. a swap-botter!

My second husband is a retired Methodist pastor. Faith is pretty important to us. organized religion has been hurtful to many people. I prefer a faith that encompasses all walks of life, all faiths, all people. John is the pastor at a Recovery Worship service currently and it has been such a blessing.

Favorite Music

Rock & Roll! Actually Im pretty diverse in my music listening but I do not like old fashioned country, nor do I like opera. I don't like rap.

Favorite Crafts

  • Swapbot -- mainly ATCs, ATC jams, and 9LP
  • Knitting
  • Scrapbooking
  • Simple wood projects
  • Quilling


Mary Engelbriet--anything!

stars! peacocks (they are my "token.")

I like decorating my desk for the holidays each month. so I like the seasons and the holidays.




favorite flowers & house plant

snapdragons, hollyhocks, lily of the valley, black-eyed susan, clematis, violets, daisies, moss roses, lilacs

Christmas cactus African violets anything that climbs - ivy


Party-related political stuff

Death or dying related

I don't like tea.

I don't use coupons.

I prefer to NOT receive photocopies of your previous work.


Comment: Super cute and fun! Love it!

Comment: I really love the summery ATC that you made. So bright and cheerful! And thank you for your handmade card too! 💘
Comment: Thanks for the cute layered Thank You card! I loved the botanical stickers and fun little extra papers. ♡Minnesota swappers unite! (Yes, yucky winter, but summer prevails, alas!)

Comment: Your fabric trailer ATC remains of the trailer my parents had in the 50 and 60's. We went to the beach many times. So your ATC sent me on a journey of good memories. Thank you
