About Me

Update: I am returning to SwapBot to actively swap again. I was unable to participate in swaps due to spinal cord issues and had lost most of the use of my hands. Had surgery and am able to swap again !

Hi I'm a 64 year old female. I live with my partner 1 rescue dog and 2 cats.

We love to visit State Parks and hike with the dog.

I like to create recycled, repurposed and upcycled crafts.

I also love scrapbooking, cardmaking and altered art.

I will always send my swaps. If you do not receive something from me please send me a message so I can resend.

Comment: Yowza Batgirl! How spoiled am I today? Your fabulous package arrived and I simply had to unwrap the clear packaging tape to see how you created it. Such a very clever use of decorative tape I’d not seen before! Love my PC’s, the Bingo card and B14 marker❤️, the notepad, but my very favorite is the beaded ornament!! Simply over the moon with joy. Many thanks and hearts being sent in your direction.❤️❤️❤️
