REMEMBER TO RATE

For me it's confirmation that you have received swap. For some reason I'm having to chase people down for ratings and it's getting a little frustrating. I will not flake and do my best to fulfill swap requirements. If you feel I did not meet requirements or you did not receive swap, please let me know (through swap-bot message) so issue can be resolved.

About Me

Hi there!
I am married and we have four adult children and two beautiful grand daughters. My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary last year (2016) and had a wonderful adventure around Europe, starting in Glasgow. His family history is from Scotland and mine is from Netherlands, so we made it a point to visit those two areas. What an adventure we had and we are planning on going back to see some more of Europe in the future.

I am doing family research on my side of family my husband knows his way back, but mine is all mixed up. My grandma is from Holland and most of her family is still there. I have been in contact with one of my cousins, and it’s come to the realization that nobody has any thing for their family history. So he is also starting to check into it and he’s gotten our great great great great grandparents. I am so excited to have names, now we just have to find out children and everything else. It’s going to be a long process and kind of frustrating because I don’t know how to do this, but we’ll get it.

I am looking forward to this journey through Swap-Bot and all the people that I will be sharing stories and items with. I am trying a bunch of new things that I have never done before - painting and ATC's are just a couple of things. To some who receive something I've made it may look childish because I am just learning, but to me - well I put my big girl panties on and stepped out of my safety zone and gave it a shot and that is what it's all about! Feel free to send me anything that you are doing, especially if you are stepping out of your comfort zone.

POST STAMPS

Do you just throw out your postage stamps that come on your envelopes? Feel free to start saving them and then send them to me, send me a message and I will send you my address. When you cut them off your envelopes, please leave a little space and do not cut right to the edges of the stamps. Know that I will greatly appreciate them and if I have them I'll share mine with somebody else who also appreciate them. Thank you in advance.

POSTCARDS

POSTCARDS - NAKED - written on and stamped, unless swap requires differently.

I'm excited to receive post cards that highlight areas, culture, animals, structures etc, and reading what people have to share on the back, this is why I got into Swap-Bot to begin with.

Architecture Country/State Scenic views Flags. Animals Fantasy Steampunk are some ideas, but really I like all PC’s.

And I really have to bite my tongue on this one, but I send postcards to my grandchildren that I think they would like. They like frogs (choke). Because they know my fear of frogs I find it amusing sometimes to send them a postcard of a frog just to shock them. Secretly I’m hoping by doing this they will quit video calling me with a live frog on thier head {SHIVERS - horror stories, ugh}.

DISLIKE:
Chinese Fashion PC’s

Comment: Your envelope arrived a couple of days ago, but because of my job as a mailwoman I was too busy to answer earlier. The long travelling pc can travel one more round extra, I can have a small handwriting. And I'm delighted to send yours for the very first time into a new round. Also thanks for the extra tea!

Hi Bonnie!! I absolutely loved all the items you sent in the 'paired envie of fun'--you sent so many extras but you can be sure that I will use it all. In fact I plan to write several letters over Christmas and your paper is my first choice! I hope your Christmas drive to your granddaughter's was uneventful---you did not say where you were going though...was it to Rupert?
