About Me

10/10/20 - I'm ready to come back to swap-bot and excited to visit with some old friends and meet some new ones!

8/5/20 - Taking a break from swapping. I've sent out all swaps that I'm registered for, will rate when I receive from my partner(s) and always thank partners that leave a rating. I am no longer tracking down ratings. If I haven't received a rating from you and you haven't contacted me to let me know that you never received the swap from me, I'm assuming that you did receive it, but either forgot to rate or don't rate partners. I always send swaps out the day that partners are assigned, or the next day.

About Me: I've been married for 43 years and have 2 married daughters, 1 granddaughter (13) and 3 grandsons (one 16 & 6 year old twins). I am recently retired, enjoy spending more time with family and watching the grandkids grow!

I transplanted from Montana to the Pacific Northwest 35+ years ago and have never regretted it. Can't beat being a couple of hours away from the mountains, the beach or the 'big city' although I do miss the slower living of Montana.

I'm a Seattle Sounders fan and enjoy going to their matches, when we could go into the stadiums. Go Sounders!

Favorite Crafts

I love making cards, and other paper crafts, cross stitching and sewing. I enjoy learning from other crafters and seeing their creations.

Over the past years I've been 'collecting' paper crafting supplies and fabric to use when I retired. I'm not at hoarder status yet, but could be close! It's been fun trying to use some supplies that I've had stashed away but never tried before. I would like new ideas to spark my creativity and to see what's new in the crafting world.

In the past I was a SU! demonstrator which built up my stamping collection. I also was a part of Operation Write Home until they dissolved. I enjoyed making cards for the troops and miss having that purpose and connection.

I like to collect recipes and occasionally try them out. I've made several family cookbooks for family reunions.

Favorite Television

I watch lots of movies and tv but I'm usually working on cards or another project while I'm watching (or else I fall asleep!) I'm always looking for a new series to watch. Any suggestions? A few of my favorites are: ~ Outlander, ~ Grey's Anatomy, ~ The Man in the High Castle, ~ Marvelous Mrs. Maizel, ~ Better Call Saul, ~ This is Us, ~ The Masked Singer, ~ Survior, ~ Downton Abbey, ~ Call the Midwife, ~ Modern Family, ~ and the list goes on, and on, and on!

About Me

I enjoy learning about different cultures and countries, and connecting with others. I wish to someday do more traveling.

My favorite colors are purples, blues and greens, but would enjoy any color.

Other favorites are dragonflies, hearts and angels.

I'm allergic to cinnamon, cloves, ginger, basically all of the fall flavors. Unfortunately, no pumpkin spice lattes, spiced teas or spice scented candles for me!

Favorite crafting tools

My crafting likes but I'm open to anything new in the crafting world:

~ Paper! Paper! Paper!, ~ Washi, ~ Quotes, sayings, angel words, ~ Ribbons, Wink of Stella Glitter Brushes, ~ Rub ons, ~ Stamps, ~ Rhinestones, gems for paper crafting, ~ Raised elements.

Postcards

I prefer naked PCs, love that stamped piece of mail. Although I like to collect state PCs, I also like to get a PC that you like so I can learn more about you. No nudity please.

Postage and no shows

If you do not receive something from me, please contact me and I will resend. I understand that all post offices are different, have different hours, some even different days that they work, especially the smaller rural towns. And they misplace things. If you receive something from me with postage due, please let me know and I will more than make it up to you. I can't always get to the post office so use a scale and USPS.com to figure out postage rates and may sometimes not get it right.

I've always believed that health and family are the most important pieces of our lives. So if you are going to be late, please send me a message so I know when to be looking for your item.

I would appreciate if you would give me a chance to make it right and I will do the same for you.

Happy swapping!

SURPRISE!!!

I love making cards, sending cards and RAK. Maybe you'll find a surprise in your mailbox one day!

Comment: Thank you for the resend and extra goodies :) I have a friend who is trying to downsize her house by spring. It's a big job! It's fun that you've come across so many memories while sorting things out. I remember helping my grandmother clean out drawers in a side table or desk and it would take hours because she would have a story about so many clippings or photos. I miss hearing those stories. I suggest keeping a journal or scrapbook to document those things you find. I am sure one day your daughter or grandchildren will cherish those things that anchor them to their family history. Or make some audio recordings of some of your family stories. Man, I really wish I had thougt to ask my grandparents to do that. Ha...I guess I'm feeling nostalgic todday. Thanks again! And take care!
Response: You are welcome! Thank you for being understanding with the resend and also the suggestion to record memories. We're still trying to get to the house cleaned out and ready to downsize. A much bigger task than anticipated! Take care and thanks again!

Comment: You got a LOT done! :)
Response: Yep and I'm still working on have been cleaning things out like crazy. Several people are coming today to pick up furniture that I don't want. And I have several loads to take to a donation place. Because of Covid, Goodwill makes you get out of your car and sort your things into bins. But Value Village will still take things without you getting out of the car, so we'll take several car loads there. Thank you for the rating and heart!.

Comment: I need to find new ways to send happy mail to cheer others up! Card Care Connection you said?
Response: Yes, check it out at CardCareConneciton.com. I sent a box of cards the beginning of August. They have their volunteers write in the cards and send them to people with cancer. I also belong to Birthday Card Swap on Facebook. The requirements are to send at least birthday cards to 2 people a month to someone on that month's birthday list. Then in your birthday month you should get some cards. I joined a few months ago and my birthday is in Oct so I haven't gotten any yet, but I've enjoyed sending cards And of course there's postcrossing, that I've enjoyed too. Take care and thanks for the heart and rating..

I saw where you had left a 1 for a swap partner and you were so kind in your comment, hoping she was ok. I thought "There's a compassionate and kind person" and just wanted you to know.

Heeeey I just got your card! I love it and will definitely use it! So well made! I’m send mine out this week!

i had never been to a crew (rowing) regatta until my oldest kid joined the crew team, freshman year in high school. And as far as WA is concerned, I have a good friend with two rowers - it's a big deal in the Seattle area. Not sure about sailing regattas though.
