About Me

Hi, I'm Janis from Texas. Yee Haw!

I have 22 year old twin boys and a 26 year old son who is developmentally delayed due to a rare chromosome disorder called "Ring 4". More information on this disorder can be found HERE.

Grayson is such a sweet boy. He loves everyone & leaves smiles wherever he goes.

LIKES: Grayson is very easy to please. A card with a dollar bill & some corny jokes written inside would make his day. Every card he receives gets hung up on his bedroom door & every dollar bill he receives gets put into a special bank & is used for his favorite pastime...going to the movies. He likes dollar bills b/c he can count them out & pay all by himself.

He collects the Panini Beauty & the Beast movie sticker packs that they have at Dollar Tree & he would love to get some more of those.

He has 2 baby dolls (12" Baby Alive named Suzy & an 18" Ashton Drake baby named Emily). He loves to get any baby stuff for them...clothes, blankets, hats, socks hair accessories, etc.

He loves the Power Rangers & has watched it since he was 4 yrs. old.

He loves books (preschool/kindergarten level - gently used is OK), comics, trading cards, any blind bag, blind box, or surprise toys. All of the current cartoon characters, TV & movies characters & older characters too. Some include...My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop, Paw Patrol, Wiggles, Magic School Bus, Batman, Spiderman, All Disney, Disney Junior, Mickey & friends, Nickelodeon - boy or girl stuff. Video games & Disney Infinity. He loves popcorn, gummy candy (reg. or sour) & bubble gum. Craft painting kits for kids...those little ceramic figures, banks, etc.

He does not care for cars & trucks, stickers, tattoos, or coloring.

If you want some specifics or have any questions please PM me :)

I ♥ killer whales...all whales really, but Orcas are my all time favorite!!

I love Steve Perry!!

He is such a wonderful singer & seems like a really great person. I ♥ 80's music too!

My Pets

I have 3 dogs...Baloney (9 yr old daushund mix), Sprocket (7 yr old Schnoodle) & we just rescued Bianca (6 yr old miniature greyhound).They are spoiled, happy little dogs who get lots of love & treats :)

My Swapping Policies

I swap USA only due to postage costs, wait times & reliability.

Feel free to use any of my past swap ideas or wording to host your own swap or to start an International version of a swap I am currently hosting. After all, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I always send & I always rate, so if you are missing a card, package or rating from me please let me know & I will fix it.

If something prevents me from sending on time I will always let you know.

If something comes up missing (don't we all love the post office) I will ALWAYS re-send. Please contact me before giving a negative rating so I can make it right.

I always angel all of my swaps as long as you rate the person that flaked on you a 1.

Please don't hesitate to PM me if something doesn't look right or I made a mistake on something. I welcome any FRIENDLY guidance, advice or reminders.

SMOKE STINKS! - I prefer not to swap with smokers unless you are very careful about keeping your items away from the smoke.
