About Me

PLEASE NOTE: If I mark a swap as being sent and that day has no mail delivery, it's because I put it in a USPS box by our mail room (which is just down the hall from me).

If it's not in the box by the time the mail comes, it doesn't get picked up till the next day so when I put a letter in the box in the evening or on the weekend and it shows marked as being sent on a Sunday or the prior day is marked sent and the postmark shows the following day, this is why ...

I mark sent as soon it goes into our USPS box because I'm afraid if I didn't, that I'd totally forget and wouldn't mark it sent at all. Old age? Perhaps! lol


For at least the past 6 months (and probably longer than that too but I didn't check as carefully as I do now) ... I seem to end up with quite a few people who do not feel it's important to rate the swaps and then I have to message them and then HOPE that they'll rate me. There have been some who have not even after I messaged them.

If this keeps up, I am tired of having to write and ask (beg?) for a rating and after a certain period of time, I'm just going to start listing non-raters on my profile. There's a rating system for a reason and I thought it was a requirement to do so.

At the same time, any non-raters who do get listed will not be eligible to join my swaps. If I do get them as a partner in a swap that I join then all I can do is hope that they'll rate me and if they do, then I'll remove their name from the non-raters list. I hate to do it but being rated is important to me and I imagine it is to the person who isn't rating but only if they don't get rated themselves I think is when they care about it - not when they won't rate others swaps.

Hi! My name is Debi and am a 64 year old Christian woman and I would love to hear from anyone who was born on that exact same day, which is May 8, 1956. I've looked for years but as of yet have not found anyone on that exact day.

A bit about me, I'm divorced, have 2 kids who are grown and on their own and also have 7 grand-kids and am a GREAT-Grandma to Jax and Kayden, Aimee (age 4) and baby Madilynn was born @ 12:06 a.m., Oct. 25, 2018.

Besides my kids and grand-kids, I have a very spoiled cat named Kyla, who turned 10 on July 22nd (2020) - [Yep, that's her in the picture below!]

Last year when she turned 9, we were actually the same age for a year 'cuz ya see, I've always heard that cats age 7 years to a persons 1 year and if that's the case then when Kyla turned 9, I times that by 7 and voila! Ky and I are were both ... 63 for a year! LOL

No fair, she looked far better than I did at that age! Ha! Ha!


Seeking Business Cards

I am just starting a new hobby of collecting Business Cards but after a very short time I realized that I need to be selective in the ones I collect.

There are a few specific categories that I really want to collect now and those are:

  • Any and all law enforcement business cards (U.S., Canadian and Israeli)

  • I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE any business cards from U.S. police officers or any U.S. military who have a K-9 partner and have business cards with their K-9's name on the card as well as their own.

  • Any and all U.S. military business cards (U.S., Canadian and Israeli)

  • Any sports related business cards (Pro or College Football or Basketball and Pro Baseball)

Aside from these, I'd also love any dance related business cards (such as from ballet studios and such.) And though opera is not my favorite music, I still would love to have an opera business card (silly, I know but ... well, what can I say? Ha! Ha!)

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!

Favorite Crafts

  • Plastic canvas
  • My HAPPY PLANNER (Love it so much!)

I also love vintage photos as well, especially the regular sized pictures of anybody [don't worry, if the photo isn't identified and you don't know who the person is ... I'll give them a name. LOL]

Now, can you just see my daughter going through junque journals after I'm gone and seeing someone in it named Uncle Dan or Aunt Isabelle and her sitting there wondering why I had never told her about them.

Then she'd wonder what side of the family and hey, maybe even look at other family pics trying to find similarities to her "new kin" she didn't know about. Ha! Ha!

Maybe I really ought to tell her about the pics and make sure she knows any in the junque journals and such aren't gonna be family pics. (Hopefully I'll remember to tell her .... lol)

I love paper crafts and pretty washi tape.

My Likes & Dislikes

  • Postcards [or pictures] of carousels

  • Would absolutely love and treasure any postcards of: Swansea,MA; Gone With the Wind; Carousels and any on the Royal Family, Downton Abbey or any other Royal Family around the world (Kings, Queens, Prince and Princesses.)

  • I also would love a card from Yulee, Florida if anyone were to have one AND one from Savannah, Georgia!

  • Even more so, I would love to be able to get a postcard from a plantation house from the south. I fell in love with Tara when I read and then watched "Gone With the Wind" and would love postcards from that type of house - the white pillars and well, a plantation house.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this!

  • I also would welcome any and all Happy Planner stickers (especially the small floral ones as I am using the Happy Planner Skinny Classic and they'd fit it better than bigger stickers though if they can be cut down, they'd work as well!)

  • Anything on or about the Royal Family [especially Princess Di, William, Kate and the kids

I really have no special love for Price Charles or Camilla so would not like anything about them and right now I'm not happy with Harry and never did care for his wife

  • I absolutely adore fine nibbed fountain pens and writing with them! Nope, I'm not hinting or asking for any because I have plenty of them, but just throwing in here with my likes, how much I love writing with them. I'd never used one until December 2015 and I immediately fell in love the minute I put the pen to paper!


  • Anything with skulls

  • Anything dark or evil

  • No adult themes

  • Terrible handwriting to the point that I have to struggle to read the letter and a good part of the time, I can't make it all out no matter how hard I try. VERY frustrating!

Hate to do it, but ...


I have put off doing this for a VERY long time but finally it's come to the point that some people just ignore your messages asking them to rate you and well, I've had enough.

@Fabriqueen - "Email swap #1 - coronavirus" Swap ended April 6, 2020. Unfortunately I didn't discover the non-rating until July 19th (2020) in which I sent Diane a message to please rate me. It is now July 27th and though she's been online since - she still has not rated me. If this weren't a continuing problem with her, I probably would have waited a bit longer before posting it on here, but ... enough is enough.

WHEN or IF she finally does rate me, I will update and post the date this swap was rated.

Arise, Shine, for thy light is come, and the Glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. Isaiah 60:1 KJB. This has always been a special verse for me. It was our watchword in Girl's Auxiliary, a missions group in the Baptist church where I was raised.
