About Me

WElcome to Swapping :Some nice swappers on here more than not, so don't get upset with any negative things.

ADDITION: As of today Feb. 26th I created another group. Cause i love groups! I love to take photos! and I love to share. It is called "PICTURE THIS",


If you get a "postage due" from me let me know.I use Stamps.com and sometimes I am not to sure about their scale.

I have currently Four Groups for swaps

  1. Thriftstore Find
  2. Make an Envelope
  3. Artistically Inclined
  4. 9 little Pockets. And 3LP
  5. Picture This! (new)

Come join in Thriftstore Find, my group, great people swapping. Also. If you like to draw, do miniature art I have a group called. Artistically Inclined. If you can doodle, you can do this.

Check it out. I make sure no drama queens are in my groups and if one shows up - - - excommunicated. And she was!

9 Little a Pockets just fun way to move those extras you have If you check my profile you may notice my" to do list of swaps "are the same as those I invent or have in my group swaps I do this so I can have control over flakers, drama queens and those that just sign up and do not join in a swap. I take in consideration anyone with 3 ratings and even 1 ratings and personally PM them about it.

PLEASE NOTE; If at anytime you do not receive a swap I am to send to you within ten days USA, please email me. I usually send within 3 days of the swap being up. If you did not get it something is wrong, as I ALWAYS SEND. ALSO if you do not receive from me within 10 days PM me as mail can get lost and can cause a low rating. I will resend but don't wait months to let me know. So unfair not to let your swapper know early enough to make it good.

ALSO: I have notice some swappers when rating do not make any comment with it. How about a thank you to her at very least. If you don't like what you received at least you got it. That is a courtesy we all should extend one another as crafters and artists.

If you joiin in any of my swaps know I take being co-ordinator very seriously. I check the ratingsI try to make sure when it is USA only, that no one other than that is in swap, sometimes people fail to read. Mistakes do happen, we can all adjust. I check each participant to make sure but sometimes they do slip by.

Being a senior citizen, I am retired with five grown children with 10 grands. and 2 ggrands. Love the mountains where I live. Worked for years at the telephone company. After retiring went 3 yrs. full time rving around the country then settled down (for awhile at least) Sold home went two more years full time. Great time. Settling in Gods country Tennessee now.

I love God, my country and am very patriotic and worried about our country right now.

Check our my daughter-in-laws page www.jenniferrothschild.com. Inspirational.

. Do not wait for a month to notify me then give me a 1 rating or a 3 please. I always send.

Favorite Music

Tony Bennett, Bett Midler, Rod Stewart, Jennifer Rothschild. Saw Mamma Mia and Abba is now one of my favorites. Try walking with that music!

Favorite Movies

Grease, Ghost,Dirty Dancing (I remember those days)

![](www.flickr.com/photos/gavinmacrae/25108340486/in/explore-2016-02-19/ve to have them)

Favorite Television

anything mysterious, love Tom Sellick so Blue Bloods. And The tv shows in the 1970 era so much better even in black and white. Antique roadshow and Masterpiece Theatre

Favorite Crafts

. My colors are mostly green shades and some blue. My kitchen and breakfast room are in pumpkin. . .. I also love to write. I keep journals, scrapbooks of my favorite things (don't need anymore).I write short stories and some of those are stories I made up for my grandchildren at bedtime when they were little..(Do not need any journals)

11/18/2015 I am starting a project and would need some old letters written during past wars from soldiers to home etc.or love letters found in any condition with or without envelopes. Need about 5 or six random pages or more. Be willing to pay the postage to send to me. Just PM me.

. I usually take pictures of what I make.My flickr account has a few on there or I put things I do on my blog. www.ladydy5.blogspot.com.

I like to photograph gravestones that are magnificently carved and take photos for people who are doing ancestry and requests them from cemetery places near my town. If you like to do that go to www.findagrave.com and become a volunteer to take photos.

I paint in watercolor or acrylic and love miniature art there also.

I do not need any fabric unless it is specifically called to do in a swap.

Do not need journals right now

Likes and ???

I love abstract art or Vincent Van Gogh's work. I love Metropolitan museum of Art in N.Y.C., it is unbelievable to walk thru. Favorite flower is the daisy Favorite colors are blue and green Favorite Reads are personal journals in book form, biographies of famous people,How to books.

I collect bird wall pockets I can always use nice pens, fountain pens you fill.


What I dislike

People who commit to a project but disregard it. Cheats, people who say one thing and will do the opposite. Takers instead of givers. I HATE IGNORANCE AS IT IS SO EASY TO BE SWAYED BY OTHERS WHEN YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW THE TRUTH. People who are rude and make up their own rules about what they receive from other swappers and Drama queens on swap bot and there are a few. People who falsely accuse others of wrong doings (see my first paragraph). !

I also like to give newbies a chance as we were all new at one time as long as they have a good profile listed and not just a sentence. Swappers who at one time did poorly in swaps but now are doing great I give chances to also and I have not been disappointed. Too many on this site seems to be very angry with others and fail to understand their ratings properly and even have a forum discussing it. If I put up a swap and have someone with several 3 ratings or 1 ratings I check it out, message them and give them a chance. Most I noticed are from more than 2 yrs back.

My Pets

Rescued another Boston Terrier in 2009, Katie. Love them Boston's.

Favorite Crafts

My groups called Thriftstore find and for the artist in me Artistically Inclined.

No longer doing quilts. Into my art work now, trying to improve it.

I don't need any note cards PLEASE

Wish List

Boston Terrier items

Coffee or tea (not green tea), ginger a favorite

Vintage or Art Deco things

Fountain Pens - (you fill with ink)

Anything Birds

Photo notecards

Old hand written letters from 40's - 50's

PeliKat rated for PT - Signs of Spring on Mar 23, 2018
Comment: Diane, I received your letter and photos today; thank you so much! I love the birdhouse in the midst of the cherry blossoms! I liked the idea of putting the photo on the letter paper, but it definitely does look better on the white photo paper. It's too bad that the wind is scattering the blossoms so quickly; Spring flowers are always gone too soon anyway. Enjoy them while you can . Thanks again and have a great weekend!
Response: We will do that again in another swap but on white paper.
