About Me

Hi Everyone, My name is Janette - I joined Swap-bot at the beginning of the pandemic, so that I could connect with others. What a great find!

I am a recent empty nester living in Miami, FL. I have 4 kids and they are all away at school, so now it’s just me and DH. Oh wait, I can’t, forget my puppy “Whiskey” (my furry love).

I love reading, writing and all things crafty. I have been doing and enjoying both for a very long time. I really enjoy tea, my favorite is black tea.

I’m high energy and I am always looking for new experiences.

I am hoping to meet interesting people and find a community that shares my interests.

Really excited and looking forward to some great swaps and new friends.

I am very punctual by nature so I send items out on time. If you don’t receive a swap from me, please contact me, I would be happy to resend.

Favorite Books

I love to read and I am warming up to audio books. Lately I have been into non fiction, but I enjoy both. Last month I read the new Sanjay Gupta book "Keep Sharp" and I listened on audio book to "Ikigai". I enjoyed both. In the both of February I am reading "The spy - a novel about Mati Hari" and "Strange the Dreamer.

I am always looking for good suggestions. Nothing better than a cup of tea and a good book. Ip

Favorite Crafts

I am really enjoy the full range of paper crafts. I like to cross stitch, even though I probably do not indulge as often as I should these days. I love making junk journals, handmade envelopes and pocket letters. Really enjoy receiving ephemera that I can add to my projects.

I am a lover of stickers and anything that falls in the "cute" category. Flat stickers are the best, not really a fan of puffy stickers or kids stuff.

Unique postcards are my new thing.

Favorite Colors

I like anything "girlie" and of course that means any shade of PINK.

I also enjoy bright colors because they cheer me up. Yellow, Orange, Red. Not a fan of blue or green.

Comment: Cute card! Thank you!
Comment: Thanks for this great "PC." I can see both the poppies and the eyes and mouth! We have had a few days up in the 50's so far. The trees are budding out, and grass is turning green! It still gets down to freezing at night! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Thank you for the wonderfully sticker covered PC! I have always worked in manufacturing/business which hasn't been very fulfilling. I'm thinking of a second act in Health Care. What sort of second act would you choose?

Comment: Thanks for the twinchies. I'm not sure if you meant for the 1 inch squares that are part of the twinchies design to count as the 2 inches but I will count them as such because the stickers are so cool! Thanks.
Comment: Loved the PC … thank you!
