Hello everyone! Update: Oct 12 - A few minor health issues have thrown me a curve ball. I will return to activity soon!
I will have minimal participation the month of Sept. 2021 due to all my cancer tests. My activity will pickup once I finish them all.
Update: September 2021 I just returned from vacation to New England for our wedding anniversary. It was lovely! The highlight of the trip for me was the 1,000 lakes area in New York and the visit to Boldt Castle. Gorgeous! Now, getting back to my S-B participation!
August! This is my birthday month - the 14th! Yes, I still count them!
Update: August 7, 2021: U S P S is Still slooowwwwww!
Update: July 6, 2021: 4th of July holiday was so much fun! Happy Birthday America! We Love You!
Please contact me if you don't receive a swap or if it arrives Postage Due! I will make it right!
Update: March 31, 2021: Well, this tops the cake! Someone got into the mailboxes around the corner from us and our mailbox also, opened up all the mail and tossed it out all down the street. I probably lost some swap-bot treasures. So sad. The police and post office have been notified.
Hey swap buddies - please be kind to everyone on SB during these times! Postal service is crazy, messed up and some envies are postmarked LATE by the post office and some are arriving 1-2 MONTHS late! Hopefully this all straightens out soon, but keep in mind that the post office is out of our control! Love ya'll !
February 7, 2021: Please let me know if you receive a mailing from me that is "Postage Due". I try really hard to get it right, but since I don't have an accurate scale I may miss by a little once in awhile. Let me know! I will Gladly reimburse you! Thanks!
To all, I have noticed difficulty with Ratings that I do "Sticking"! Please know that I always rate within 1 day of receipt of swaps.
Update Nov. 22, 2020: I have been asked to add a "Likes" section to my profile. I am so easy to please, that pretty much anything makes me smile. Here are a couple of suggestions: Favorite colors: Blue, Aqua Love all animals (as you can see from my profile below i live on a farm). I also adore birds, especially bluebirds. I like Washi tape, blank notecards, postcards from other countries and sticker sheets (no reward or child ones, please). I enjoy a nice cup of tea, but do not like to receive food items. I also am not a fan of Kawaii stuff. I do not like loose glitter!
Alpacas: I get lots of questions and comments on my profile image of alpacas. Unfortunately, I have had to give up on raising alpacas as it is simply too HOT where I live for them to do well. So, "Baby Neo", "Nilla" and "Paloma" had to go up North to cooler weather. I miss them so much!!
First - IF you don't receive a swap I have signed up for in a reasonable amount of time (postal delays, etc. especially international), Please let me know before giving a low rating I will resolve it ! I do not flake! Also, if you get a package "postage due" Please let me know and I will reimburse you! I try to do my best with guessing the amount from home! Thank you!
** Note: I prefer not to receive food items such as candy and chocolate ** Also, please NO Glitter. Thank you!
I live on a "hobby farm" of 30 acres and enjoy caring for lots of animals! My animals include horses, miniature donkeys, pygmy goats, chickens, turkeys, and guineas! It is plenty of work but much reward.
I live in South Texas where there is plenty of heat and humidity. My husband and I are retired, but work harder than ever before! There is always plenty to do here!
I love to travel. My husband and I have been all over the USA and some of Europe. I've been to France, Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Belgium and Russia. Generally, we do not have hotel reservations or an itinerary when we go... we just GO! Such fun and we travel light with only a backpack. Our most recent trip together was to Alaska in August 2019 and it was a wonderful experience. I was excited to see a Moose and a gray hump back whale. I never dreamed I would see those!
My birthday is August 14th and I am always excited to find others with the same date - so far I've found one person from Swap-Bot who shares the same date!
I enjoy going to off Broadway shows. My all time favorite is The Lion King. I have seen it many times and I also love The Phantom of the Opera. I recently (finally) got to see Les Miserables! Wow! What a great show! My daughter and I saw CATS in October and the last show I saw was a local production of Dickens A Christmas Carol - it was great! My daughter and I have a tradition of going to see it every year. I saw Jersey Boys in London a few years back and really enjoyed that also!
One of my hobbies - I have many - is doing Mosaic tile projects. Maybe I can find a swap? I hadn't thought of that until now!! It is very time consuming but rewarding. My latest project was a 4th of July Tray of the American Eagle. It's very intricate and slow going, but I love doing mosaics! I haven't decided on the next project yet.
I love anything with horses, miniature donkeys, and especially goats!. Animals take up most of my extra energy during the day. So I love any farm animal themed stickers, bookmarks, etc. I am also "addicted" to washi tape now that I have discovered it (I need animal tapes and also any color solids)!
I don't have many dislikes except scary things or creepy, gory, witch, etc. I do like Harry Potter along those lines but don't consider that scary. I prefer not to receive candy or edible things. Teas are good tho! I also don't like glitter (especially loose) and absolutely cannot stand balloons! HA!
Everything I receive is a surprise and I appreciate the effort it takes to participate in the various swaps and love it all! I truly appreciate all the effort swappers put into packaging, spending their time and money to send to me. Thank you!
A little history - my nickname comes from the 100 year old church my husband and I bought several years ago which will become a wedding chapel that I have named "2Hearts Chapel". It is the oldest building in the small town I live in and sits under 100+ year old Live Oak trees planted in memory of soldiers lost during the 1st world war. We have completely renovated it with new hardwood floors, ceiling fans, paint and a large antique (from the late 1800s) church bell. It's lovely! I hope my wedding venue will be up and running by late summer.
Finally, again, If you haven't received your package in a reasonable amount of time, it probably got lost in the mail! Please message me before rating a 3 or 1! I will make it right! I live in the country and the post office is, you know... The Post Office! :)
