What I Pledge

2022 Word of the Year: Organize

I take my swapping very seriously, I like to read my partners profile to get a sense of who they are and will always try to send the best packages. If for some reason you do not get a package from me, please pm me and I will resend. If for some reason I would ever be late, I will always pm you before the send date.

About Me

I've been swapping now since Feb. 2008. I am totally addicted and have made many new friends. I love to surprise my Swap-Bot friends with RAKs.

I'm a homemake who has been married for 39 years to my best friend Mike. We have 2 grown children, a beautiful grandson and adorable grandaughter. We have 3 fur babies, 2 german shepherds and a cat. We have a Harley and love to ride through the parkway when it's nice out. I have a beautiful craft room that my husband built me to do my crafting.

My favorite colors are green and purple.

Favorite Books

I love to read science fiction and thriller/suspense books. My favorite book series is the Xanath series by Piers Anthony. Some other authors that I like are Patricia Cornwell, Johnathan Kellerman, Robin Cook and James Patterson.

Favorite Movies

I like action/adventure, comedy and science fiction movies.

Favorite Crafts

Since joining swap-bot I have had the pleasure of being exposed to artist and art that I had never seen before. The level of craftsmanship still amazes me and makes me want to explore my own talents. I enjoy making postcards, making atc's, and decorating envies.

Things I like

-Some themes I like: Birds, Fish, Dinosaurs, Animals, Mushrooms, Science Fiction, Bugs & Lizards

-Pretty Stickers (both loose and sheets but no flakes)

-Used Postage Stamps & Airmail Labels

-Handmade postcards

-Rubber Stamps

-Small Embellishments

-Decorated Envies

-Ephemera of all kinds



-Colored Pens

-Sticky Note pads

-Fun Office supplies (I have a strange obsession with office supplies, especially fun colored ones)

-Anything made by you

Thank you for the lovely RAKs Only Jan wishes. So many goodies! I love it all. Love the quote. My artist would work on my back every Wed for approx 6 hours for an entire year! I would sleep through the whole process.
