About Me

11/29/22 - Hi all! The swaps I received have been rated - yippeee for wonderful Happy Mail! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday - being with family is always so special to me, as we only have our kids, DIL, and Grandbaby & lots of wonderful memories of those that have passed away over the years! Thanks again for your patience and grace while I was away! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


11/20/22 - Hi all! We are going to be traveling a good 13 hours tomorrow (to Colorado Springs for family Thanksgiving - yippee! And I will have Yaya time with Jemma, who turned 9 months yesterday), so will be putting my swaps in the mail today at the post office and marking them sent, since the hubby will not want to mess with my mail tomorrow! Not trying to pull a fast one, as the mail does not run today, just trying to keep peace in the truck! LOL!

I will not have access to my mail until Monday, 11/28/22, and have rated everything I currently have received. Thank you for the wonderful Happy Mail all!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, and thank you for your patience on me rating you when I get back! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


10/17/22 - Hi all! Our trip to Mexico was wonderful and being back to reality is somewhat annoying! LOL! I could get used to beach life and being waited on, which is not happening here at home! LOL! I have rated everything I received, so if there isn't a rating, it hasn't reached me yet. Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


10/06/22 - Hi all! We are traveling again on 10/10 through 10/15, and I will not have access to my mail until 10/17. Also, the internet may be spotty, so messages may have to wait as well! Thank you for your grace and understanding! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


09/13/22 - Hi everyone! I am back home and have rated everything I received while I was gone - thank you for your patience! Some of my swaps were mailed from the hotel, so hoping they went the day they were supposed to - fingers, toes, and eyes crossing! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


09/05/22 - Hi everyone! I am traveling again from Tuesday, 09/06 thru Monday, 09/12, and will not have access to my mail - I will rate everyone when I return - thank you for your patience and grace!

Please say a prayer for our Miss Greta Mae and us, as it is our first time boarding her and we are a tad nervous! Hubby is in CO and I am heading to IN, so not close if anything would happen (heaven forbid!), she is a total Momma's baby, so... There will be tears when I drop her off tomorrow - sob!

Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


08/25/22 - Everything I received has been rate - yipppeee! So many fun swaps received and appreciated! The countdown for my retirement has started - come on end of September! LOL!


08/19/22 - I am leaving for NE and Hippiefest, so will not have access to my mail from 08/19 - 08/22 - I will catchup on ratings when I return - thank you for your patience and grace! Peace out everyone ;)


07/12/22 - Had a wonderful time with family in CO, of course it went way too quickly - sigh! Baby Jemma was trying to crawl already at 4 1/2 months old - I cried knowing I would not see her for several months and how quickly they change - sigh! Anyhow, I am caught up on ratings and appreciate everyone's patience! If it is not rated yet, I haven't received it and the mail has been slow, so... Hugs and Happy Swapping!


07/05/22-not sure what happened to my update-in CO and will not get my mail until July 11. Will catch up on ratings that week! Thank you for your patience! 🤗


06/21/22 - I am home and caught up on ratings - yipppeee! Loved my time with my CO family but it is always great to be home as well! Although I miss Baby Jemma's smiles and blowing raspberries at everyone! LOL! Missed my hubby and stuff - like Happy Mail! LOL! Thank you for your patience! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


06/03/22 - I have just found out my CO kiddos are in a lurch for daycare due to COVID - sigh! So this IL gal is heading to CO with her furbaby! I will not have access to my mail from June 4 - June 20 - I will rate and comment on swaps when I return to a "normal" life! I ask for your grace and patience, as we all know life happens, so... Thank you and Happy Swapping! ;)


05/24/22 - sadly some of my mail seems to be going Pony Express instead of normal mail times - everything has been mailed timely but I am not sure why some of it is taking so dang long to get to my partners! If you feel enough time has gone by, please reach out and I will be happy to resend! So annoying but what can we do? Thanks for your patience and understanding!


05/02/22 I only had a few swaps come in while I was gone over the weekend and I have them rated - yipppeee! Hugs and Happy Swapping!


03/18/22 Hi all! I am caught up on ratings, so if it is not rated, it has not been received yet. Thank you for your patience while I was catching up! My trip to see Jemma Elizabeth was way too short and so much fun! It was my first time flying alone and it went off without a hitch - thank you Southwest Airline for having lovely, helpful staff! I was a tad worried but it all went smoothly and that was so appreciated!! Now I am working on swaps and looking forward to my Happy Mail!

Hugs and Happy Swapping Everyone!


Hi all! I am finally getting to see my sweet Grandbaby in person - Jemma Elizabeth! I will be flying out on March 8, 2022, and returning on the 15th. I will not have access to my mail until I return after March 15. Please be patient about me rating - I will catch up as quickly as possible and just know I am over the top excited to meet this little one! I am a Yaya for the first time and if I chat about her a bunch, well, please bear with me on that as well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


Hi all, our sweet Granddaughter (Jemma) was born today - 02/19/22, and I am over the top excited to be a Yaya for the first time! Thank you everyone that has been patient with me chatting about her in my swaps - it might get worse before it gets better! LOL! Please be patient with me! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)


Moved our youngest son to Crete, NE in October 2021 and we are empty nesters again, except for Miss Greta Mae, our fur baby!!

It is so strange just being the hubby and fur baby here, but we will adjust in time - I guess...


We adopted a puppy (Ms. Greta) on March 9, 2021, and I forgot how much work they are! LOL! She is a sweetheart but I am way older than when we have had puppies in the past and my Mom eyes in the back of my head seem to be gone, so I have to watch her like a hawk or she is into stuff! LOL! This too shall pass and I am enjoying her puppy silliness & all the love she has to share! Thanks for your understanding if I get behind on rating or commenting on your ratings! Hugs and Happy Swapping 😉


My oldest and his family have moved to Colorado Springs, CO over the 2019 Christmas holidays! They are so excited and we have a new place to visit! LOL!


I am married and have two sons & an awesome DIL - I love the thought of scrap-booking and making cards, but have been lacking the energy as of late! Also love reading and meeting new friends through fb or other group sites! Hope I can participate in some of the swaps on this site and make some new friends!

I was in two B-day clubs with some gals in the UK, from FB and participated in a Christmas card exchange as well. I am always amazed at how creative the cards are from these lovely ladies!

When my oldest son left for college in August 2009, I felt such a void in my life, then I got on fb and found the groups I was involved with - I also found fv and was addicted for awhile!!

Now my oldest graduated from college and Army ROTC in May 2013 and my youngest graduated from college in 2017! Time does fly!

I enjoy meeting new people, exchanging cards and pcs with them, as well as going to local scrap booking events and meeting new folks!

So far I have been lucky that any swaps I have signed up for, I have been able to fulfill my obligation. I would hope that would continue.

I am not into drama and will try to send stuff that I think my swap partner will enjoy - however if I miss the mark, well stuff happens! I am very easy going with what folks send me and just look forward to seeing how others respond to the different swaps!

Loves/Likes - My family, Being happy, Hearing kiddos laugh, Being with gal pals, Scrapbooking, Card making, Meeting new people, Love, love, love to read! The library is one of my favorite places!! The beach, Halloween, Christmas, Birthdays! Soccer, Taking pictures, Being able to help others, Being able to laugh at myself , A clean house (this is a dream of mine but I am a bit of a clutter bug, so...), Traveling, Vacations, Flowers, Learning new things,

Dislikes- Drama when it is not necessary, People that just need to get over themselves, Vacations that do not work out, Kids being disrespectful to their elders and each other, Car problems, Health issues, Feeling like someone has taken advantage of you or someone you care about, Housework! lol

Ratings - I am very good about trying to rate quickly, so if you sent me something and do not see a rating timely, please let me know! Either I did not get the item or it got mixed in with other stuff!! That does happen sometimes!

Flaked on the Punch Art ATC #26 - touch of Red I hosted: FibreJunky - I pmed and emailed, but have not heard from her - swap was angeled - she should not sign up for any additional swaps I host - grrrr!

Flaked on the Punch Art ATC #33-Two Twists that I hosted:Emawee0307 - I emailed her, as she has not been on swap-bot since the day she marked sent, but her partners have not received anything - swap will be angeled, and she is banned from my future swaps - dang this is getting old!

Got flaked on for the Postcards for Sonya - GingerR - how sad this was a RAK sort of swap, so...

Got flaked on the What's for Thanksgiving Dinner? PC swap by teamtiredfeet - what a drag! How hard is it to send a dang pc?? ;(

Flaked on by @Ratatatat in the My Sept 2016 - EDITED swap - this was a bummer as it was a bit time consuming as it covered a whole month - so... The host is angeling the swap with her Oct info.

Swaps

I love all postcards - have a soft spot for vintage postcards but really have not met a postcard I didn't like! LOL!

I would love to receive some cute address labels and could exchange pcs for them! If you can help me out, please send me a pm!

Not trying to be a pain but am cutting way back on international swaps - especially pc swaps! Between the cost of postage increasing and having to resend pcs overseas - it has just been a pain for all! I have really enjoyed sending and receiving from the overseas swaps, but need to make cuts, so... Hopefully everyone understands!

Comment: Thank you so much for photos and your note! We didn't have a long naked-tree period this November - now we have snow-covered trees! First snow came two weeks ago and unlike normal first snows, hasn't melted away.
Response: Hi! Thank you so much for the lovely comment, rating, and heart! Oh may you still have snow after two weeks - yikes! We had 6 inches that just happened unexpectedly and then a week later just a few inches that was expected! LOL! I was not ready for snow - lovely at first but then I am over it, especially if it keeps me from doing fun stuff! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Thanks for the great vintage postcards. I grew up in Wilmington, DE and we'd go to the shipyard waterfront in Philadelphia when my dad's company would launch new ships, when they were still building ships in the US. I've no idea what it looks like now.
Response: Hi! I am so glad you enjoyed the pcs and the memories they brought to you - who knew my pcs would do that? Small world! Thank you for the sweet comment, rating, and heart! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
