About Me

  • Thank you to everyone for your understanding during my time out of town and while dealing with family matters. Thanks for your understanding with late swaps and thanks for you patience with late ratings. I have now caught up with all my rating, so if you still have not received one please message me and I will take care of the over sight. Thanks again!

** I would really like to add pictures and graphics to my profile, but I don't understand the directions they give, If you know how to, please message me with easy/specific directions THANKS!

I am a nanny/personal assistant and student living in the NW. I am currently working on my Master in education but I make sure to take the time to enjoy the outdoors. I am excited to begin my student teaching in the fall and graduate in January.

Love camping, fishing, road trips, reading, and social activities. I also enjoy watching sports. My favorite is soccer, then football (I prefer college) - Just watched the Portland Thunder (Arena football) the other week and really enjoyed it. My teams are Timbers & Thorns (soccer) Oregon Ducks (football) Blazers (basketball) and Hopps (local baseball team).

I have 3 kids: 23, 20, and 15 and 5 fur kids, 2 dogs 3 cats: Bandon, Benjamin, Sissy, Twix, and Doogle (my cat/dog)

Favorite Music

My favorite music is current country and current "top 40" and smooth jazz on a sunny spring day.

Favorite Books

My favorite books are thriller/murder mystery and Science Fiction. Love Piers Anthony Xanth series. Through Swapping I was introduced to Cozy Mystery books and I am hooked! Currently reading the last couple of books in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

Favorite Movies

Like most movies. Prefer thrillers, fantasy or comedy. Will watch romantic comedy and horror, but they are my second choices. Sometimes like documentaries, but hate sub-titles. Favorite movies are: A Walk In The Clouds and Somewhere In Time.

*Just saw San Andreas and it was very good - Love the Rock!

Favorite Television

No television, only Netflix and Hulu. Shows I am currently watching: Walking Dead, Once Upon a Time, Revenge, Glee, Sleepy Hollow, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and True Blood (Just finished SOA - let down by the ending/ too predictable)

I am also a sucker for reality shows - Amazing Race, Hells Kitchen, Master Chef, Master Chef Jr. and Chopped

Hate Bachelor and burnt out on Survivor

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking, Sewing, Cross stitch. I can also croquet but only pot holders - someday I would like to learn how to do more than just pot holders :)

Likes and Dislikes


I am not much of a collector, but I do seem to have a lot of bird items,

As for teas, I prefer black tea, spice or fruity, but I do have sleepy time tea almost every night before bed.

Postcards: Any kind will do, prefer store bought and sent blank in an envelope, but naked and stamped is ok too. I have not been able to find places here in Oregon to purchase "non-tourist" postcards, so your swaps help me to create a great stash of different post cards! So, thank you.


PLEASE NO FLORAL SMELLS (floral scents give me migraines) Other than that, I don't have many dislikes - I like to try new things.

We are all human....

Please be patient with receiving your rating... I am usually on swap bot multiple times a day, but sometimes life happens and it may take me a day or two to rate. Rest assured that I have always made sure to rate swaps that I have received and if you did not receive a rating that very date that you sent, it will come soon.

If there is ever a problem with a swap or you don't receive one, please message me and I will fix the problem right away - I would really like to remain at 5,000 :)

In return, if you are running late or life happened, please just communicate and I will not rate low.

Comment: Hope you are okay my dear!
Comment: I am rating a 1 as you have not sent to me send date( June 30) nor have you sent me a message.
Comment: As of today (9 July), I have not received anything for this swap. I double checked the participants list and it indicates that a postcard has not been sent.

Comment: I don't want to rate a 1, but I didn't get anything and you haven't logged into SB since before partners were assigned. I sent a message checking up - no response. Hopefully you are OK! Of course I'll change the rating if I get something.

TC rated for Monthly Photo Challenge #2-Scavenger Hunt on Jun 20, 2015
Comment: Swap was due June 6, sent on June 9. There was no prior communication that it would be late, even though you logged on to SB on the 2nd. The swap met requirements in all other regards and would have earned a 5 had it been sent on time. I appreciate that you followed through with sending it. Sender: Martha Opie Hansen.
