About Me

*While I am not signing up for swaps here at Swap-bot, I am still swapping privately with a few people to keep my decos moving. I have too much going on in my life to be able to hold to deadlines at the moment.

I'm Saundra and I live in Alabama. We have 2 German Shepherd dogs, 7 chickens and 8 goats. I enjoy reading, gardening, hiking and the beach.

I collect chicken/rooster, American flag and chile pepper items. In post cards I like scenic, nature or unusual shots. My favorite colors are pink, purple, and red.

I love gardening and growing things. I love seeds of all kinds and like to try unusual tomato and peppers along with other unusual veggies (colors, shapes, etc). I especially like heirloom seeds and seeds saved from your garden are fine with me. If you want to do a private seed swap, send me a message.

Please don't send

I cut back on some of the items I swap, I'm no longer swapping friendship sheets, friendship books, stickerbooks, slams or any bags, so please don't send these to me. No x-slips please, I don't do them. I'm always looking for USA swappers for the items I still swap. I have a swapping group at Groups.io Trading-Place for all type items.


I've been swapping decos for years and I love how decos have evolved over time. I love getting art decos but I also do taped deco where time has been spent in the creating. I am not a fan of full page decos, Sponge Bob, Rainbow Brite, Barney, Disney Princess, My Little Pony, TV Shows, Movies or Celebrity decos. If its in a Last Signer type swap and that is what you have to send, I don't mind finishing the deco and sending it home, otherwise I'd prefer something else. Please don't send Selfie decos as that is something I'd have to pass instead of doing.

I have a deco group Deco-swappers at Groups.io.

I am also a mod at Facebook Group Art Deco Swappers of the world!.

Wish List

I am adding a wish list as it is required on a few swaps. I like many things and I am not hard to please so please feel free to go beyond this list if you think I will like it.

Vintage embellishments, photos and postcards

Pretty paper

Decorated Envelopes

Chip board pieces, die cuts or punchouts. Since I don't make cards I don't use words or sentiments much. I love animal, flowers, mushrooms, anything nature, beach, vintage and anything sort of unusual like mermaids, unicorns, fairies, etc.

Swap cards larger than a business card with cute graphics

Metal dies for die cutting in a Big Shot.

Thank you for the angel decos 😇

K8thecrafter on Mar 4, 2021:

Thank you so so so much for the deco package you sent. The info in your letter and emails have been incredibly helpful. Having different deco styles in my hands to look through and all of your notes pointing out different details in the deco was an amazing learning experience. I’ve been curious about decos and wanted to get involved in the swaps, and all of your help has made me feel more confident that I won’t disappoint my partner or ruin someone’s deco because I didn’t understand. I wish I could leave you hearts for this. You took the time to explain the ins and outs to me and I so appreciate it!

Makes me feel happy you found the Deco Book in your mail when you returned from your vacation. Hope you enjoyed a good summer vacation.
