About Me

I LOVE Swap Bot!!

07/22/2021 Update. I have deleted some collections as I just had too many. I'm changing my lists to only show Set Collections,.

I like to read, make junk journals, altered books, my own hand-made ephemera from cut-outs, scraps of paper, ribbon, buttons and more. I am a devoted YouTuber. I follow quite a few channels, but love checking out documentaries and other channels that catch my eye.

I have many authors that I like to read and the list keeps growing as I discover new authors. I love retirement; no money to travel anywhere but can do so through Postcrossing, YouTube, books and now Swap-bot.

I love animals, especially cats; big cats and domesticated cats. I also am fond of birds and butterflies. I collect USA postage stamps for the most part, but have started collecting from other countries as well since I joined Postcrossing. I love poetry and write some of my own.

I have many collections in addition to my stamp collection. They are:

Fenton Milk Glass Fenton Cat and other animal figurines Salt and Pepper Shakers Post Cards Books by my favorite authors (Robert B. Parker, John Sanford, Jonathan Kellerman, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Michael Connelly, Iris Johansen, Victoria Holt, and quite a few more. Depression Glass Elegant Glass Journals (all kinds)

My favorite color is green. All greens, everything green. As a young girl my favorite color was Cobalt Blue primarily, but then again it was all blue, everything blue. The thing is I love color, all color. It's hard to choose. There's yellow and red and black and purple...all truly beautiful.

I will follow through with every swap I join. I am dependable, reliable, honest, happy, trustworthy, hard-working. I love life and am grateful for every second, every minute that I am given. I want to be the best that I can be and I want to never stop learning and striving to be better. I make mistakes but I try to learn by those mistakes and move on.

Sincerely Alma

Comment: Hi Alma, First and most importantly, Thank You for kind offer to be my “angel.” I’m going to keep your card and I may call on you if I need to do so. Thank You for the postcard you sent me. I like the items you chose to put on the card. Since the original owner started with an old text, your additions kept that “old” feeling. I am looking forward to finding 2-3 “old” things to add to the card. Since I wrote that last entry on my Profile, I have been in the hospital, due to a major drop in my Sodium. I was told by the doctor who took care of me, said I was at the level that at any time I could have had major seizures and/or passed away. Prior to the entry to the hospital, I had been to 2 ERs, 1 Urgent Care, and then the hospital, all in less than 5 days. Then I‘be found out why my oxygen has been dropping low during the day and I was already on oxygen at night due to big drops in my oxygen at night. My new Pulmonary doctor says I have Restrictive Lung Disease. As a result, I’m going to need to be on oxygen 24/7. I’m very sad about this, but it’s something I have no control over. As well, I have been having a Great Deal of trouble walking due to severe pain in my right knee. I saw an orthopedic doctor/surgeon and he has injected it twice. So, I have terrible problems in my knee and need a knee replacement. However, I need to be feeling better. So, we will see what life holds for me over the next few months. That is an update. Thank You for the “extras” you sent along, as well. I know they are things I will be able to use in the future.
Response: Thank you for your response. I am sending a reply by mail. Hugs
Comment: Hi Alma! Thank you for the pretty pc and share! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Oh my - such a lovely envelope of items you sent to me. You didn't have to send me an envie full of wonderful items and so many stamps!! That was so very nice of you, but not needed. You went overboard on the first envie. Thank you so much for a Happy Mail day! Frieda
