Hi Friends, UPDATE: We have just returned home. Our house was spared even though the fire came very close to our neighborhood. We are so thankful and appreciative for all of your prayers and good thoughts. Thank you for allowing me extra time to catch up on my swaps. I will need a little time to catch up on ratings as I just picked up cards from the postbox and have some others that I haven't rated yet. I will get to them in the next couple of days.
I live in the area in California that has been evacuated by the recent wildfires. I have been out of my house for the past couple of days and do not know when we will be able to return as there are still evacuation orders in place. I am not sure at this time what my house looks like but I think it is ok. But I am not able to get to any of my postcards. Some of my swaps are going to have to be late due to this emergency. I will let individual swappers know through pms but I wanted to let the Swapbot community know just in case I have you as a swap partner and my swap is late. Thank you in advance for you understanding.
PLEASE PLEASE message me rather than give me a 1 and I will always send another card out to you. That is never a problem. I never give a 1 without finding out your situation and I hope that you will give me the same consideration. Many times mail gets lost in the post office so even though I have mailed you something it might have been lost.
If you have not been rated it is because I have not received a card or there was not a swap listed on your card. Message me to let me know if you sent your card but forgot to put the swap name. I just checked my mail last week so I am totally up to date with ratings.
Note that there is a change in my address. I got a new PO Box closer to where I live in Agoura Hills. Now I will be able to pick up my mail on a more regular basis since I visit the post office a few times a week.
I have been married for the past 27 years and have two beautiful children, a girl who is 25 and a boy who is 19. My daughter is getting married in July and we are very busy right now planning a bridal shower and a wedding. Right now I am not working so swapping takes up most of my time. I have gone through some bouts of depression so I do go to a group at my health facility. I also like to play bingo. I go to a few games a week. Part of my therapy, my therapist said is to get involved in things so swapping does keep my mind busy. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
I love postcards and love to have them from all over the world, ones that are representative of the area where one lives. But I love other postcards too.
Some of my hobbies are knitting, crocheting, arts and crafts; especially color pencils and by the number pictures. I also like to make jewelry. My current thing is using African paper beads found at beadforlife.com. They are so unique and different and I mix them with beads that I find at craft stores. I also like iris folding and plan to make some cards for a future swap.I like to do ATCs. Lately I have been doing zentangles and watercolor painting.
My favorite colors are pink, blue and lavender. I also am a big cat lover. I have a 12 year old cat named Sparkle and a 8 year old cat, named Bella. I also love puppies.We have a Yorkie named Mia. She is about 8 years old. She is so cute and loves to play with Bella. I love nature. So that's about all from me. If I think of something else I will add it.
I basically like alternative music and inspirational music. Also yoga type music which I listen to to fall asleep. Also I have gotten into Enya. I also love show tunes.
I am not a big reader, however, I have read a lot of Danielle Steele books. I guess you could call these romance novels. I do read a lot of magazines. I love magazines like Women's World, First and Health. Other books are self-help types. I am hooked on diet books and love religious reading, especially books dealing with Judaism. I like biographies also.
I haven't seen a lot of movies lately. But I think my favorites are comedy/romance/drama. I really liked Driving Miss Daisy and the Notebook. I like movies that make me cry. I know that sounds weird but for me it is a release of feelings. I love Queen Latifa and see everything that she is in.
Reality, reality and more reality. I can't get enough. The latest sitcoms have really bored me. I love Survivor and have seen all of them. Big Brother as well. I have really gotten into Law and Order and CSI, all of them, Miami, NY, and Las Vegas. A & E has many of them in a row. I WATCH A LOT OF TV. Most of the time though it is on mostly as white noise while I am cleaning or doing swaps. I also like all of the crime shows. Criminal Minds is a favorite. This season is really good. Also Law and Order SVU.
I can't tell you how much I love receiving postcards from all over. I like all kinds of scenes from anywhere. I like buildings, special tourist attractions, beaches and lakes, multi-view scenes where there are three to four views of different places on the card, mountain scenes with snow, street scenes with restaurants and shops, and any other that tell me about where someone lives. I also like animal cards, kittens and puppies or dogs, transportation and really any card you send will be special to me. I love greetings on the back, quotes, a little about you or whatever you want to tell me.
I celebrate the Jewish holidays. But I still like to send out cards for Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter, as well as Jewish holidays. I do participate in celebrations that others have for Christmas and even like to have one of the Christmas cookie swaps at my house.We do put up a tree and do Christmas as we always did this for my mother-in-law and the kids got use to doing it. My daughter is perhaps the best tree decorator I know. She should work for a store decorating the trees. I also love postcards that show a city decked out for the holidays or any card that has a holiday on it.
There probably isn't a postcard that I wouldn't like except snakes and lizards so I would not want anything with that on it. As far as what I would like to swap would be stickers, any kind but especially cats and dogs. I also like scraps of paper especially giftwrap. I do Iris Folding and love different kinds of paper. I also like scrapbook paper. I guess it really depends upon what swap that I choose to be part of. I also like to swap greeting cards that are written on. I never really receive that many cards, especially during Christmas/Hanukkah, but this year was really different with all of the swaps and groups that I belong to. I am so thankful for my postal pals.
