I'm going to put this here for anyone who NEEDS to know....I do NOT sign in here sometimes days at a time...I have had many crazy life challenges since joining swap bot and I swap responsibly with sending on time as well as rating...I do know communication is important and I will send a message if I need to clarify something with a swapper and hope you will do the same...Swap-bot is something I do because I get JOY from it and I value the relationships I have found here...
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother . I am a military spouse so LOVE my patriotic/Americana themes. We own a seasonal cottage in NY state that has a country flare (sunflowers, roosters and bugs with lots of "Grandma & Grandpa decor"...think books, puzzles, picnics, camp fires, journals (lazy days)!!! I'm into reading, gardening and bargain shopping...love watching movies with a big batch of buttery popcorn and walks in the woods! Always have a camera with me.
Mostly read fiction: Nicholas Sparks and Mary Higgins Clark are my absolute faves! Like mystery, suspense and romance. Christian authors are: Karen Kingsbury, Beth Wiseman, Beverly Lewis,Kathy Herman, Lori Wicks, Terese Hale and Francine Rivers :)

I really appreciate all things homemade and the talent that it takes to create :) I especially love altered or upcycled itmes focusing on reduce,reuse, and recycle!! (aprons from skirts, or pillow shams ,home made envies, tote bags made from anything, PC's from greeting cards or fabric scraps...etc..) Sewing items (any threads, buttons, fabrics , scraps are fun:)
