About Me

PLEASE NOTE: If I mark a swap as being sent and that day has no mail delivery, it's because I put it in a USPS box by our mail room (which is just down the hall from me).

If it's not in the box by the time the mail comes, it doesn't get picked up till the next day so when I put a letter in the box in the evening or on the weekend and it shows marked as being sent on a Sunday or the prior day is marked sent and the postmark shows the following day, this is why ...

I mark sent as soon it goes into our USPS box because I'm afraid if I didn't, that I'd totally forget and wouldn't mark it sent at all. Old age? Perhaps! lol


For at least the past 6 months (and probably longer than that too but I didn't check as carefully as I do now) ... I seem to end up with quite a few people who do not feel it's important to rate the swaps and then I have to message them and then HOPE that they'll rate me. There have been some who have not even after I messaged them.

If this keeps up, I am tired of having to write and ask (beg?) for a rating and after a certain period of time, I'm just going to start listing non-raters on my profile. There's a rating system for a reason and I thought it was a requirement to do so.

At the same time, any non-raters who do get listed will not be eligible to join my swaps. If I do get them as a partner in a swap that I join then all I can do is hope that they'll rate me and if they do, then I'll remove their name from the non-raters list. I hate to do it but being rated is important to me and I imagine it is to the person who isn't rating but only if they don't get rated themselves I think is when they care about it - not when they won't rate others swaps.

Hi! My name is Debi and am a 65 year old Christian woman and I would love to hear from anyone who was born on that exact same day, which is May 8, 1956. I've looked for years but as of yet have not found anyone on that exact day.

A bit about me, I'm divorced, have 2 kids who are grown and on their own and also have 7 grand-kids and am a GREAT-Grandma to Jax and Kayden, Aimee (age 4) and baby Madilynn was born @ 12:06 a.m., Oct. 25, 2018.

Besides my kids and grand-kids, I have a very spoiled cat named Kyla, who turned 11 on July 22nd (2021) - [Yep, that's her in the picture below!]

A couple of years ago when she turned 9, we were actually the same age for a year 'cuz ya see, I've always heard that cats age 7 years to a persons 1 year and if that's the case then when Kyla turned 9, I times that by 7 and voila! Ky and I are were both ... 63 for the year! LOL

No fair, she looked far better than I did at that age! Ha! Ha!


A few of my favorite things

A few of my favorite things (which I'll add more to at some point in time) are:

  • Country Churches

  • Castles

  • Carousels

  • Cats

  • Receiving long legible letters that are detailed and that tell me about you and your life (how your week is going, about your neighbors, your town, what you see out of your window, etc. ... just about normal every day things in your life!)

Favorite Crafts

  • Plastic canvas
  • My HAPPY PLANNER (Love it so much!)

I also love vintage photos as well, especially the regular sized pictures of anybody [don't worry, if the photo isn't identified and you don't know who the person is ... I'll give them a name. LOL]

Now, can you just see my daughter going through junque journals after I'm gone and seeing someone in it named Uncle Dan or Aunt Isabelle and her sitting there wondering why I had never told her about them.

Then she'd wonder what side of the family and hey, maybe even look at other family pics trying to find similarities to her "new kin" she didn't know about. Ha! Ha!

Maybe I really ought to tell her about the pics and make sure she knows any in the junque journals and such aren't gonna be family pics. (Hopefully I'll remember to tell her .... lol)

I love paper crafts and pretty washi tape.

My Likes & Dislikes

  • Postcards [or pictures] of carousels

  • Would absolutely love and treasure any postcards of: Swansea,MA; Gone With the Wind; Carousels and any on the Royal Family, Downton Abbey or any other Royal Family around the world (Kings, Queens, Prince and Princesses.)

  • I also would love a card from Yulee, Florida if anyone were to have one AND one from Savannah, Georgia!

  • Even more so, I would love to be able to get a postcard from a plantation house from the south. I fell in love with Tara when I read and then watched "Gone With the Wind" and would love postcards from that type of house - the white pillars and well, a plantation house.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this!

  • I also would welcome any and all Happy Planner stickers (especially the small floral ones as I am using the Happy Planner Skinny Classic and they'd fit it better than bigger stickers though if they can be cut down, they'd work as well!)

  • Anything on or about the Royal Family [especially Princess Di, William, Kate and the kids

I really have no special love for Price Charles or Camilla so would not like anything about them and right now I'm not happy with Harry and never did care for his wife

  • I absolutely adore fine nibbed fountain pens and writing with them! Nope, I'm not hinting or asking for any because I have plenty of them, but just throwing in here with my likes, how much I love writing with them. I'd never used one until December 2015 and I immediately fell in love the minute I put the pen to paper!


  • Anything with skulls

  • Anything dark or evil

  • No adult themes

  • Terrible handwriting to the point that I have to struggle to read the letter and a good part of the time, I can't make it all out no matter how hard I try. VERY frustrating!

Hate to do it, but ...


I have put off doing this for a VERY long time but finally it's come to the point that some people just ignore your messages asking them to rate you and well, I've had enough.

Comment: Just checking... Are the things crossed out completed or not completed? Thanks for sharing!
Response: Hi Laurina, Thanks for the 5 and the heart. I did send you an e-mail update and it shows what is crossed out and what isn't. Some I did get done and a few I didn't. I just re-sent you the email in case for some reason you didn't receive it. Have an awesome day!

Comment: Awesome! I'm always so impressed that you get so much of your list done! I should think about putting more "realistic" things on my list! haha! Good Job and Thanks for Hosting!
Response: Oh, you're more than welcome for my hosting the swap and thank YOU for being so faithful to join i! If I didn't have this swap, I doubt I'd get a fraction of things done. (The one has been on my list for a month and I haven't done it as of yet and it's only making a phone call which I just never remember to do until it's not a convenient time for me to call them .. I usually remember late in the evening.) Maybe this next time around I'll finally get it done ... I can only hope. lol Have a good evening and thanks for the quick rating and for the heart. πŸ’•πŸ’•

Mega Profile Bible Verse Swap #3:

The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.

Psalm 9:9-10

Quick and Easy Profile Message Swap-- Hello Debi, It was interesting to read you live in Titusville. My grandmother's sister lived there here entire adult life and my grandmother also lived there with her on and off at times. I remember seeing the photos and hearing the stories about life there. I liked hearing about the Amish they would see from time to time. I hope you have a lovely New Year's 2018!!!!
