About Me

11/27/23 (updated)

UPDATE: I am very behind on the holidays. Because of that, my last month to do swaps this year is September. I will not be doing any swaps in October, November or December. I will return to doing swaps in January 2024. I hope everyone understands. I will try to plan better next year. May everyone have a blessed holiday season.

(7/11/23) Thought it was time to update my profile and tell you a little about me:

I am disabled. I used to be a word processor/secretary. I loved my job.

I have a 28 year old son named Billy who lives with me.

My husband Harvey, who had been living in a nursing home passed away on June 10, 2023. I am now officially a widow. A title no one wants to have.

I have 3 cats:

 Dagwood (a Tabby, age 14, 2/8/23)

 Missy (an American-Shorthair, age 13, 7/10/23)

 Miracle (an American-Shorthair, age 10, 7/2/23)

I have 1 dog:

 Snowball (large white Chihuahua, age 14, 1/2/23)

I have made alot of close friends here on swap-bot and I love them dearly. When you are hurting and need someone to reach out swap-bot is the place to be. People here are so kind and compassionate.

I no longer do crafting (except what is listed below on my profile); so please do not send me craft supplies except for stickers and washi which I can use to send cards. You can also send me supplies for anything still listed on my profile. Thank you!
