About Me

Updated October 9, 2022:

I've made the decision to move again! I never really wanted to move to AZ., but my mom didn't want to go to WA. or to FL., which were my first choices. My best friends live in those states. So, I'm beginning the long task of massively decluttering for the next year and getting my RV ready to travel and be lived in full-time! My home base will be FL., but will travel to WA. for a few months a year.

~~~~~

I've lived in the desert of western Arizona since 2020. I bought a little over an acre and have a small poultry farm. My mom died a year after we moved here. I'm pretty much retired since I moved, due to the scamdemic. I do sell on eBay.

I also have 1 dog - Nikky - 12 years old - Chihuahua mix - raw fed; 2 cats - Scotty and Casey - siblings - 2 years old - raw fed; 2 doves - Big Boy and Doveling - 12 and 7 years old

I am trying to get creative again!

Ratings/Sends

I live out in the desert. I only go to town on Tuesdays and Fridays to get my mail. I try to rate as soon as I open my mail.

I try to always mail by the deadline or before. If you do not receive something, PLEASE make sure to contact me about it before rating.

I had issues with one swapper (back in early 2011) about one of my sends and she gave me a poor rating. She did not like my first send, so I offered to resend. She then said she did not receive my resend. I have offered to send copies of my Postal receipts/customs receipt, but she never responded. I have spent more on this one swap trying to satisfy her than I have on any 5 other swaps! It's very frustrating. She gave me a one rather than a 3!

I recycle nearly all the packaging I receive - envelopes/mailers, boxes, bubble wrap, tissue paper, newspaper, etc. I also use clean/unused butcher paper, paper grocery bags, etc.

Favorite Television

I don't watch much TV these days. But, I've always been a big fan of The Magnificent Seven TV series. I do enjoy good British mysteries, such as Poirot and Marple. I watch a lot of YouTube videos.

Favorite Crafts

I love so many different crafts. I'm hoping to get back into sewing soon. I also do paper crafts. I do a lot of graphics art on my computer (fanart, etc.)

Favorite Books

I love good cozy mysteries (Lilian Jackson Braun, Agatha Christie, etc.) I read a lot of non-fiction (cooking, nature, dyi, crafting ...) I enjoy good m/m romances.

I do not read anything political, politicians, financial, business, etc. I don't like thrillers, gore, religious, espionage, war, or girly romances.

Favorite Music

I love anything oldies (Pre-1970), other than a rare few that are more recent (BeeGees, John Denver, John Barrowman ...)

Faves include Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Sam Cooke, Nat King Cole, Burl Ives, Doris Day, Jo Stafford, among others.

Foods

I eat an animal-based 'diet'. It's more a life-style than a 'diet' ... This means I eat animals nose-to-tail (including dairy), but also honey and some fruits.

I do drink herbal teas, love anything fruity. Not really a fan of black, oolong, Earl Grey types.

Allergic to oranges, rose hips, jasmine, eucalyptus, chamomile, mushrooms, avocado, birch trees, ragweeds, flax, pines.

I don't eat candy. I do occasionally eat chocolate bars (Theo is a favorite brand.)

I will pass on foods I won't/can't use. :)

Swap Types

Favorite swaps are anything electronic, wacky holiday swaps, decluttering swaps, happy mail swaps, crafty swaps, thrift store swaps.

Due to cost, I can only do Regional/USA for physical mail swaps.

Please don't send anything religious.

Make sure to check my allergies, if sending foods.

Wish List

Double-sided craft tape (such as Scrappy Tape), any width

Chocolate Puerh or chai teas

Rub-ons (for paper crafting)

Nice stickers (Western, vintage, floral, plants, butterflies, bees, etc.)

12x12 papers (flat, not folded)

Vintage postcards

Vintage photos (Victorian/Edwardian era, or Old West) of children, animals, 'cowboys', Indians

Fabric petals/leaves

Images/photos/figurines of BLACK Cocker Spaniels
