Spoiler Alert!!

10/24/2020 Crazy!! I learned this last week that several mailboxes were either stolen or vandalized! If you don't receive something from me, please let me know so I can resent. I was also told that our mail person didn't show up for a few days prior to a replacement taking their place. Not sure if it was covid?? The world has gone mad!!! I just want "nermal"!!! 😳

09/21/19 Tropical Storm Imeda kicked Houston's ass! Our only sorting facility in Houston (biggest in the country I read) collapsed on Thursday!! I had a few swaps out in the mail the previous day. If someone, Halloween envies, AMMM:Grab n Go! & sadly puzzle collaboration, doesn't get their swap, please let me know. I'm afraid they might not have made it out before building collapsing 😟. I will resend... Ugh!!!

07/26/19 Headed to San Fran to catch a cruise to Alaska. If I owe anyone a rating, promise I'll rate as soon as I return on August 20th. I should be able to get ALL my swaps out prior to leaving. If I dont, I will contact partner(s). Thanks all! Summer is ending soon! Enjoy!!!

06/18/18 Headed out of the country to Ukraine for 3 weeks starting June 25th. If I owe anyone a rating, I'll catch up as soon as I get home! Art on!

01/22/2018 Just wanted to let everyone expecting a swap from me this past week up until today, it may be a few days late. Last week Houston shut down due to "ice" conditions! I'm serious! We can handle water here in Houston just not frozen water! 🤤I mailed everything out on time but might take a bit longer to have gotten out of Houston. I will resend if they don't show up... plz. just let me know prior to rating down.

9/2/17 Eeeeeeee spared by Harvey by the grace of God! Just wanted to let anyone that I may owe a rating to that it might be a few more days. Our neighborhood hasn't been cleaned of any household debris yet. Promise to rate as soon as possible. Not sure postman has even tried to deliver mail.

5/2/17 just wanted to let y'all know if I owe you a rating or a swap, I'll be returning home soon. My mom recently passed away after a long 10 year battle with Alzheimers. She is now resting peacefully in beautiful Colorado.

1/25/15 I'm back! Went cruising on the 18th & just got back today ;) I'm picking up my mail tomorrow so promise to rate all swaps that I receive. Sorry for worrying anyone... I hate that feeling of having a lost swap :/

7/27/14 I'm baaack but... headed out tomorrow until Aug 9th to NM to help my sister with my mom who has alzheiemers :( I should be able to get all my swaps out even if on the last day due.

7/17/14 I'm headed out of the country tomorrow on vacay for the next 10 days, so, I hope if you get me as a partner, you don't mind me mailing 1 or 2 days late. I believe I'm only in one swap where this might be the case. I will rate anything I receive as soon as I get home. Thanks y'all!

I pretty much put pictures of all my swaps on Flickr so just a heads up! If you want to be surprised, don't look :p

About Me

I've been married for 25 years to a crazy man. 🤪

10/24/2020 Update: after these last 25 yrs. of marriage, not sure if our marriage will survive this crazy year of covid. My heart is totally broken & crushed. I love this man with all my being but i hate myself right now for the person I've become & how he makes me feel. He took 25 years of total trust and painfully betrayed me. Prayers are welcome.... I pray for God's grace to help get me through this because I am also mad as hell! 😥

We have two kids, a 22 y.o. son & a 21 y.o. daughter. We have 3 muttly dogs, 2 nutty hairless cats, a 90 lbs. plus tortoises & 4 macaws, Picassa, a blue & gold. Lucy & don carlo, both green wings & Franko. A harliquin.

I'm addicted to making cards, inchies & ATC's. I've swapped at the old PCMB, afa, ISC & Splitcoaststampers. I love collecting little stuff such as bizzare charms, old skelton keys, doll heads, nuts & washers, watch parts & cogs... really anything old & rusted makes me happy ;)

Favorite Music

My favorite music would probably be classic rock...I am old ;) I especially like Van Morrison, Led Zeppelin, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Commadores, Chicago, Jimmy Buffet, Santana, Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Nickelback, Seether, Los Lonely Boys... anybody remember the Bay City Rollers? I use to love them. I like head banging music, punk, reggae, country, & grunge. Hmmm, guess I love it all.

Favorite Books

I love reading John Sandford, Lee Child, Michael Connelly, James Patterson, Sue Grafton, Patricia Cornwell, Janet Evanovich, Steven King & so trying to read Sturgis Larsson's books.

Favorite Movies

I think my all time fave movie would have to be the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Wizard of Oz or Overboard. Now have to add, Game of Thrones & of course the new Star Trek movies.

Favorite Television

I watch Fox News. I get a kick out of the Big Bang Theory & saddened they took #[email protected]? My Dad Said off the air, Person of Interest, Bones, Criminal Minds... I love the original Star Trek, Bewitched, Frazier & Jack Bauer in 24. Loving the new marvel TV series', the Arrow & Flash.....

Favorite Crafts

I love paper crafts! I USE to do a lot of atc swaps but have recently started doing mail art trades & since being on swap-bot, fallen in love with zines. I'm still learning tho :) I love vintage anything, grunge & especially Steampunk! I pick up old rusty nuts, washers, pieces of metal, things that others would consider junk! I also love inchies & got quite the collection going. Did I mention Tim Holtz? Or that distressed look? It is absolutely awesome! Old Skelton keys? LOVE them!!!

Postcards: Ok. Had to add this since lately I've been making a lot of pc's. I prefer homemade but if it has to be store bought, I'd love non touristy cards, sent naked with cool stamps.

Colors - I like reds, browns, burnt oranges & blacks mostly but ALL colors are great! Bling is awesome... But not necessarily "loose" glitter.

Likes & dislikes I think I'm fairly easy. As long as some thought is put into your project, I'd be grateful. I really don't like cigarette smoke smelly things... and thought I just might have to add, no childish or baby things, reward stickers or kawii. My kids are teenagers now so I have no use for such things anymore :[ Everything else is all good :)

I'm a paper hoarder (really!) so please no extras needed there, unless of course, it's cool emphera with bizzare images on it such as doll heads...


I will almost always have my items ready to mail as soon as I get my partners snail mail addy's so if you don't receive something from me, please let me know. I'll rant, rave and call the postal service a few names then, re-do. I will NEVER flake!! I will also ALWAYS rate as soon as I receive your item(s) otherwise, it'll get mixed in with all my other "stuff", lol! One more thing, please put the name of the swap somewhere, either behind the card itself or in any correspondence. I'm a swap addict & am usually doing quite a few swaps SO, it makes it much more easier & faster to rate if I have that info... but if you forget, promise you, I'm not anal! Love you for it!

Comment: OMG!! Ha, Ha! The puzzle piece you sent to me made me laugh. I'm going to make sure I preserve it. Yes, bye to 2020 and of course by the time you sent the swap and the time I received it, we are in a new Year! Happy New Year! Now we're just trying to make it out of the month of January. Maybe we'll start seeing a turn during the month of LOVE (February). Take care! Oh yeah...I love the puzzle piece. Thanks!

Comment: I love the ATC, and the little booklet! I'm not a huge Dina fan, but those little one-line heads are one of her trademark things that I really like, and the "be strong" message is so fitting right now - thank you! I also love the way you backed the ATC - different and cool :)

Comment: What a beautiful piece I got today! This one is very special to me and I love that you customized it to my house number. I cannot wait to see the completed puzzle eventually!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and ty for the extras!!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely house shaped skinny. It finally arrived after almost two months. At the moment Tasmania has no cases of the virus for three months now. We are keeping our fingers crossed and waiting for the second wave. Maybe we will not get that as our borders have been closed since March and are not opening up until December. I hope you are safe and well. I like the envelope that included my skinny. warm hugs elflady
Comment: What a beautiful skinny , thanks a lot. Love the extras, thanks.

NRGordon rated for Chunk O Cardboard - June 2020 on Jul 16, 2020
Comment: Thanks for the 'sweet' chunk. It has been unseasonably hot her too. I just heard that it has been the hottest and driest April - June in over thirty years. Not temps like you get, I'm sure, but too darned hot for me.

You should of seen the perplexed look on my face when opening the mail box and in the dark recesses thinking I was seeing a life size like stamp. LOLOLOL. Was I having a turn on, tune in, drop out moment? lololol Ok now you wanna hear what I thought after I processed the enlarged stamps? And I promise I did not read the postcard.
