About Me

2020 Update: I returned to Swap-Bot in August after a 2-year hiatus. My previous profile was: annielou

When I attempted to return to swap-bot in August, my previous profile had been "deleted." I reached out to admin, and also posted on the Facebook Swapbot site. I had no responses or recommendations.

I felt I had no other choice than to create a new profile. A SB member reached out to me today and will contact admin on my behalf to have the two profiles merged. I am so appreciative. ++++++ as of 9/30/21 my accounts are still not merged +++++ 5/3/2021 my accounts have not been merged; not for lack of trying ++++++

I’m a retired administrative assistant who turned 65 and retired during the COVID lockdown in Minnesota. November of 2021, I returned to work very minimal part-time and I am loving it!

I have five kids who are all grown up ages 31-40.

I am married. My husband is still working part-time in ministry.

Favorite Music

60s, 70s and 80s.
everything but opera, and twangy country.

Favorite Crafts

I’ve been doing a lot of scrapbooking, rubber stamping (cards), and mixed media journals are my new passion.

My crafts are spilling out from the craft room into our guest room at my husband's recommendation and blessing.

Summer Loves:

Summer finds me camping and gardening. I still manage to find time to be creative in my craft room too!

I will be trying to harvest seeds to plant next spring and I am very excited about it.

My newest favorite flower: Datura (Angel's Trumpet) it's gorgeous.but careful! it's poisonous!!





Overtly sexual - no thank you

sleepingrover2010 rated for USATC: Inside a Jar ATC on Sep 9, 2021
Comment: Hi Anne, Thank You for the BEAUTIFUL ATC you made for me. The 3-D lid looks very realistic and the lid truly makes your jar really look like a jar. Putting the butterflies"Inside the Jar,"was perfect in my eyes. They look like they have always belonged in your jar. I look forward to adding your ATC to my large collection of ATCs. This collection has ATCs from other swappers and some are mine that I made to complete a set. As well, I made some ATCs for swaps that were cancelled, but I had already made the ATCs for the swap. I really enjoyed your swap art and I appreciate all your hard work. I also appreciate the extra goodies you included in my swap. Please know that they are all items I can use in my future swaps. I look forward to swapping with you in the future swaps I participate in, in the future.Until we meet again., Happy Swapping! Barbara B., sleepingrover2010
