***Updated News***

June 7, 2018 update I am home from my vacation and will now register all of the wonderful snail mail I received while I was gone; thank you all for understanding and I am feeling really good since my surgery! :) I will join some swaps soon, but I wanted to make sure I was up to date on registering all of my mail before I added any more commitments to my plate. :) Have a great day!

**May 16, 2018 update **

I am home from the hospital and will be sending my three swaps out in the morning (too late at 10 pm tonight to get them out). Thank you to my three partners for understanding. My surgery went well, just need to heal now! Off I go to address my envelopes.... have a great day.

May 9th update***

I'm currently signed up for three swaps I am on vacation and now in the hospital. I ended up in the ER yesterday and I will love surgery on the 11th. These three swaps will have to wait until I get home I'm so sorry after I said that I would get them done in time I had planned to be home when I was just having vacation, but now I'm in the hospital. I emailed the swap coordinator I will try to email each participant it's just very hard to type right now with all these wires. I'm pretty sick but I will get this done I'm home. Thank you for understanding.

May 2, 2018 - Update -

I have two trips planned this month, so I will get my swaps out on time, but I won't be able to register my received items until I return. Thanks for understanding and have a great day!

Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to swapping with you!

Fav. Music and Books

I love all sorts of music, but not rap nor country. Just a few of my favorites are: Harry Connick Jr, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, The Beatles, Michael Buble, Janis Joplin, 80's music, Tori Amos, Soundtracks, Broadway Musicals, Melissa Etheridge, Classical, Big Band, 40's Swing, and so many more (will add as I remember more of them!).

I love to read although I must confess I don't have the time to read as much as I would like. I collect books (my husband and I own thousands of books!) - especially dictionaries (in all languages), poetry, Shakespeare, Memoires of a Geisha, The Red Tent, Da Vinci Code, Wild, A Walk in the Woods, real life traveling stories and countless others (I will continue to add as I read more!).

Favorite Movies

I was a teenager in the 80's so I enjoyed many of those films. I also love the Back to the Future series (I have always adored Michael J. Fox and used to have HUNDREDS of magazine photos of him on my bedroom walls!), romantic comedies such as Princess Bride, Star Wars series, Love Actually, Nottinghill, Singing in the Rain, Sound of Music, Amelie (all time favorite film, actually!), Fur, Garden State, City of Angels, Michael, What Dreams May Come, Pirates of the Caribbean series, Sherlock Holmes and many many more!

NO DISNEY!!!!!!!!!

Favorite Television

I don't really watch TV, although thanks to my husband, I've been introduced to some TV shows on Netflix. I've really enjoyed Orphan Black, Mr. Selfridge, The Americans, Sherlock Holmes, American Horror Story, Homeland, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Jane the Virgin, Black Mirror, WestWorld and more when I learn about new, great shows!

Favorite Crafts

I make my own greeting cards and have done so since I was a child (now I'm in my 40's!) and I also enjoy making bookmarks (due to my collection of books!) and postcards. I have recently gotten into the ATC, so I'm still a newbie, but hope to learn more as I explore this paper craft.

I have collected stickers and traded (and sold them to!) with friends since 1982, so I would say I love stickers and own thousands and thousands of them - I can't stop buying them I adore them so much!

Other stuff I like to do

I started out an avid postcrosser as I love learning about other countries and cultures, but now that I have found swap-bot, I must confess I am not on there as often. grin Pretty much any postcard you send will be great: it's about what you write, your handwriting and the postage stamps that honestly make my day!

I collect and play board games - I have well over 100 in my "game closet" and love to play cards, trivia games, "party games", Charades, Pictionary, Cards Against Humanity, Scattergories, Boggle, Blokus, Risk and Scrabble is my favorite game!

I love to attend Renaissance and Pirate Faires (and dress up as I have a closet FULL of costumes!).

I throw costume parties and Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday; I go "all out" when decorating the house and yards for the holiday.

I enjoy hiking, camping and being out-of-doors.

I love photography and have been taking pictures since I gained a 110 camera in the 1980's.

I am a Geocacher and have been doing this fun hobby since 2004 and that is how I met my husband, whom I married in 2012.

About Me

My husband and I knew we would marry after less than a month of dating. We are both "hopeless romantics" and love leaving each other notes of love and buying little surprise "gifts" from the $1.00 store and such. We have 4 cats that were our "foster kitties" that we ended up falling in love with and adopted from the animal shelter I used to work at. My husband works with computers and he loves seeing the fun "snail mail" that fills our mailbox. I'm very lucky to have found my soulmate, even if it did take me until I was 40 years old. grin

I hope to trade items with wonderful people on this site and am hoping it gets me back into my crafting, which I love to do and what makes me the happiest (other than the love of my life and our house full of kitties!).

Dislikes and disinterests

~ I don't care for reward stickers or tiny stickers (have been sent way too many of those and I don't have kids!) ~ I don't care for stained/dirty/torn items, yes I have received a few of those for swaps and I can't imagine who would send or want something of that sort. ~ I don't care for anything religious. ~ I don't care for anything Disney. ~ I don't care for politics.

Response: Oh I am so happy you enjoyed my card this much - I try to add more than just a lame "quote" or the like when I mail out mail as I want to make it worth the effort and stamp - we want to make the person we are sending to smile, right?! :) Take care and thanks for the heart!
