PERSONAL INFO

Hello! I'm Beth.

I've been married 28 yrs, with three children -- 2 boys and a girl. They're pretty good kids and I'm proud of them. We live near Chicago, Illinois.

I am here for fun and relaxation, not drama. I swap to reduce stress, mainly. I love fun mail.

I am a Christian. I love Jesus Christ and what He's done for me -- all by grace. The God of the universe took on a human form, came to the earth He created to die a death He didn't deserve, to pay for all of our sins and give us a right relationship with God. We could never earn it or deserve it. Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ and is a free gift to "whosoever." I want to be friends whether you are a Christian or not. Let's accept each other the way we are, okay?

Hobbies are spending time with my family, baking, cooking, reading, making photo cards (blank inside) and handmade envies, gardening, Bible study, swapping!, organizing, going to resale shops, thrift stores, antique stores and flea markets.

LIKES

  • Flowers! (esp. roses), and other botanicals
  • Birds/animals
  • Pretty stationery, note cards, envelopes (not tiny ones), quality stickers (no foam, kids)
  • Washi tape, esp. words, botanicals, maps, astronomy, unusual. No plastic or fabric tape
  • Happy Mail! I love decorated envies

  • Sparkly stuff!
  • Colorful things! Fav. colors: purples, blues, pinks, aqua, teal, lime green, almost all colors. I DON'T LIKE BLACK, MUSTARD OR MAROON COLORS; THEY MAKE ME SAD!

DISLIKES

  • NOTE * : IF YOU DON'T SEE IT LISTED IN MY LIKES SECTION, it means it's not my taste or I have no use for it at this time. Please save it for someone who can appreciate it. Thanks!

Bad swappers! Late senders, non-raters, flakes, and people who are stingy with hearts!

SWAP NOTES

I DON"T FLAKE and I never send late. If something doesn't arrive, msg me and I will try to find out what happened. I will make the swap right.

If you've hit Swap Bottom and cannot fulfill your swap on time, please msg me before it's due.

I try to be generous with hearts. They're free! :)

I love Extras! Esp. things from my LIKES list! :)

Private swaps welcome with those having 5.0 rating and lots of completed swaps.
