Hello -

[Updated 1-25-23]

Hello from Oregon! I look forward to swapping with you. My rating is very important to me. Please let me know if you do not receive a swap or if I've failed to meet your expectations. I want to make it right.

Who am I? I am a Christian, a sinner saved by God's grace. My acceptance with God was purchased with His Son's sacrifice on the cross.

Oregon is my home. I've lived here all my life except for a few years in the San Francisco Bay area. Couldn't wait to return to Oregon. I'd prefer the Oregon coast, actually, but I'd miss all my friends here.

I've been retired since 2008. My DH passed in Oct 2014.

I have one very spoiled cat Tinkerbell. She will be 19 this spring (2023) She is my loving companion.

Before isolation, I enjoyed tag sales, thrift stores, and flea markets. Most of my days are now full of socializing on the computer and crafting. I enjoy making cards and collages.

Themes I enjoy

Birds, chickens, owls, cats, vintage toys & images are my fave images. I'm a child at heart, whimsical and playful, but not Disney. Love the 40s & 50s book pages.

My very favorite postcards to collect are dressed animals and birds with umbrellas.

I also collect unusual canceled postage stamps, and single swap playing cards (especially unusual jokers).

Wish List

Think handmade, vintage, part packages, gently used from your stash first. Other people's trash is my treasure.

I tend to prefer bold or muted colors over primary and pastel colors. I also like "unexpected" color combinations.

For flat surprises, I can use:

  • Handmade or altered paper, painted, splatters, Geli plate prints, stamped on and textured papers (all sizes) I love paper!
  • Swap cards
  • Faith based stickers and stamped scriptures.
  • Flat stickers, rather than 3D types
  • Retro and Victorian pictures or phrases cut from books, magazines.
  • Anything handmade by you.
  • Vintage single playing cards (collect jokers and interesting pictures)

CANNOT USE

I try to be thankful for any gift received, but some things just don't work for me due to my allergies: perfumes, soaps, lotions, candles, and some foods.

Tea and coffee samples are fine.

I don't celebrate Halloween.

I can enjoy most Victorian Steampunk, Gears, Owls, etc., but I do not care for the dark side of steampunk, skulls, death, etc.

Reminders for me . . .

My Games, Tags, Trains, RAKs & Wishes:
