I am a retired teacher aide in junior high. I substitute teach in my local school district as often as I can. I have a B.S. in Education and am certified to teach junior high-high school. I have three children and six grandchildren. I live in a very small community, but have spent several years in Georgia and North Carolina teaching.

Pet Peeve: On this site, it’s the non-raters. Just find it rude to not acknowledge a swappers effort. If signing up for a swap, commit to the swap totally. Communicate with swap partner if there is an issue.
On a personal note, I have met some very lovely swappers on this site. Even though we haven’t met in person, I feel I have friends here. I have been given encouragement, advice, and have received swaps and goodies that have brought tears of joy to my eyes. It can be a very special place!
My passion for crafting really start to grow after my mom passed away. I love to create but sometimes have no one to share anything with so I thought a swap group would be the answer. I really am enjoying the fact that I can pick and choose my interests and when I want to swap. I love the mail when it arrives and the beautiful creations made for me. I love trying new things to create as long as I can view a picture or tutorial.
