Something New

The first 3 I've ever received, and it's a retaliatory one.

If I'd known @FrancesDauphinais was a multiple profiler, and a flaker, at the time she requested a private swap in the public forums, I wouldn't have it set up. She sent late, and didn't like the 3 I gave her honestly.

She originally gave me a 5 with a heart (see below) for the gelli papers I sent on time and in good faith. The other person who also set up a private swap for the same request was also sent late to, and also rated a 3.

Here's a screenshot of the first rating - she hasn't been back since.

December 25/17

Merry Xmas!

December 7, 2017

I follow a blog called "The Art of Doing Things". Karen has blogged about something very disturbing to everyone who uses the internet. See it here

Let's do what we can to stop this!

November 6, 2017

My husband supports my "habit" on SB and saves tidbits for me to see; these are interesting, so I thought I would share them:

In 1869, the first postcards were printed and put on sale by the Austrian government.

In 1840 Penny Black was the first adhesive postage stamp used in a public postal system - this was on a UK postcard I got. I had no idea that's where Penny Black (clear stamps, etc) got their name from!

November 3, 2017

I've been able to get most of my data returned, after my computer crashed on October 17. I have to return to the store when I see that some important things are still missing, but the person there is great and welcomes me back.

October 14, 2017

My mom died on Oct 12. It was fast that day, albeit several months with her trapped in a wheelchair and not being able to communicate. She's with dad and my sister, I hope.

December 2017

December 2016

All my baby grandsons!

Axel 3.5, Logan 1, Gray 3.5 mos

December 11/26, 2016

The updates on my profile show both the date AND year, which is a bonus everybody likes. Wish everyone would do this.

Please - update your profile, especially if you join profile-based swaps. I sometimes wonder - are you/your husband/kids still sick? Have you moved? How's the new job going? etc etc. :)

Most of the statements on my profile are from the early days of SB (November 29, 2008), which many SB'ers will know.

November 6, 2016

The memorial was fantastic! My sister lived a life most would be envious of. She volunteered, she hiked, she led artsy workshops, she danced in the streets wearing ridiculous outfits and participated in pillow fights! She influenced people and was loved by many. I wish I'd known her better.

October 18, 2016

I want to thank everyone who have sent me their condolences for my sisters disappearance, and presumed death, on a hike in Vancouver, BC (Debbie Blair, September 29, 2016).

She was a free spirit.

September 6, 2016

Axel (3 yrs), Logan (9 mos) and me

September 3, 2016

My third grandson was born August 28, 2016. His name is Gray - another cutie! 20 inches, 7 lbs 6 oz.

December 4, 2015

My new baby grandson, Logan. Born at 12:27 pm on December 4, 2015, weighing 6 lbs 13 oz and 19" long. He's another keeper!

June 2, 2013

My first grandchild has arrived! Axel was born at 1:01 am on June 2, weighing 6.6 pounds. He's 19.5 inches long, and is cute as a button. We're going to have lots of fun.


Fave Books/Music



"INDESTRUCTIBLES" are great books for the first time reader - they're chew proof, rip proof, nontoxic and 100% washable! The pictures are great - big and bright and artsy! Yes, photocopy them and use them.

I love Amelia Bedelia! I read her for my OWN pleasure.

One of my favourites (and my kids faves) were the series of A-Z animals by Sweet Pickles, written by Jacquelyn Reinach and/or Richard Hefter who illustrated them. Totally vintage books from the '70's. Wish I still had them.

I did read The Bobbsey Twins when I was younger, but was an avid reader and graduated to the older books fairly quickly. Read Oliver Twist when in grade 4, after the teacher finished reading it to the class!

Of course, Dr. Seuss and all the "regular" kids books are great to read. I love to pick up educational ones, like "The Scoop on Poop" :)


Recently read the book, "The Humans" by Matt Haig - I LOL'd several times, so had to read a passage or two out loud to my husband - there were also serious insights about the human race, Stephen King (most of them but to me Salem's Lot was the scariest book I've ever read), Robert McCammon (Swan Song - a long story, but I didn't want it to end), Dean Koontz (Watchers - my first Dean Koontz and it got me to read them all; I even read it again), Jodi Picoult (just started her books - kind of whiney but that's the way people are these days), and others.

I like to read, so I read a lot, but I read so fast that I can't remember the books I do read - have you ever started a book, and know that you've HAVE read it, but you don't know what's going to happen, so you just continue to the end? Well, I've done that. More than once.

The Chrysalids (also called Rebirth), by John Wyndham is one of the best - read that one a lot of times. When I was younger I loved the Outsiders, by SE Hinton.

And, to age myself, before that - Trixie Beldon - The Gatehouse Mystery. I must have read that one seven times!

I don't like most movies made from books, and I'd rather read the book, but I was glad I saw the movie, The Godfather, before reading it. Most of Stephen King's books are slaughtered when made into movies. I actually thought that Needful Things would make a great movie, but... Ahem, it wasn't, LOL.


I love the blues and, what I think is called, "alternative" music. I like rock, easy listening, and swing (think "In the Mood" by Glen Miller), too - I listen to a station you can log onto on the web: CKUA.com (Friday nights from 9 pm and Saturday from 3-5 pm they play the blues - Sunday AM they play swing). But, the station plays everything, and it's listener sponsored, so you don't hear ads. I hear music played by people I've never heard of and I LOVE (most of) their styles. Try it out.

I don't like classical, jazz or rap, so I do have to change the station sometimes :).

James Blunt, Ruthie Foster, Natalie Merchant, Molly Brown, Corey Hart, Huey Lewis, Uriah Heep, Dave Mathews, Los Lobos, Stampeders...

Favorite Movies

I don't see a lot of movies anymore. I did when I was younger - living on an Air Force base in Germany, I went to a movie every Saturday with my 25 cent allowance. A movie and a bag of fries is what that bought. Hayley Mills was one of my favourites back then - The Truth About Spring, The Moonspinners, etc.

Favorite Television

I like quirky comedy. There isn't a lot on TV anymore. I tend to rent DVDs from the library. Homeland is still good. Mrs. Brown's Boys is hilarious.

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking ruled once upon a time (I actually finished an album), but because card-making is so fast, I finish them more often than any of the albums I dream of having someday (there's no way I can give anybody a "store bought" card anymore)!

I tend to collect patterns of different crafts to do. My computer is full of patterns, and so is my filing cabinet :) I can't stop. When I clean up, I just organize better - I seldom throw anything away.

Since discovering Swap-bot Nov/08, ATCs rule these days! I spend so much time making these little gems, that everything else has been put on the back burner!

As with many of you, I could hold a class and supply everyone with everything they'd need and not miss any of it. Not that I could hold the class IN the craft room. This is not good, but then again, it is. Michael's must miss me these days.

About Me

I met my husband in 1992 and we married exactly 5 years later. We have a few children between us, all of them grown now.

I'm a camper - my husband and I have an acre sized campsite about an hour and a half away from the city and visit it every weekend if the weather allows. My parents had a place there before us, and that's where we got married.

I would love to have an acreage. Have always dreamed of living on a farm.

I'm an Air Force brat, so travel is in my blood - plan to see more of this planet. When we lived in Germany, mom and dad took us camping all over Europe - lucky me.

Have always had an interest in photography - my husband bought me a great camera so one of my retirement plans is to really USE it.

July 5, 2011 - last day of my "real" job. Husband retired 2013 and we're content to putter around at home, or the campsite. How did we find the time to do things when we worked??



Please, if you're considering dental implants and going to Costa Rica to have it done, DON'T go to Prisma (with the big red lips). There are quite a few good doctors - research, research, research. I went on the word of a friends cousin, who had permanent implants put in. I haven't heard lately how her teeth are.

To hear the whole story, pm me.

Laser Surgery

If you can, do it BEFORE needing reading glasses. I can tell you now - you have to have glasses with you all the time, or at least accessible (in the car, in the bathroom, by the computer, in the kitchen, by your crafts, at the store), etc, etc, etc. And it's easy to forget to carry them around with you. They're always on the top of my head. It's a pain in the butt, but great to be able to walk in the rain :)

Likes & Dislikes


I like bright colours - red, yellow, and the different kinds of blue there are.

I like having little kids around, teaching them to cook or do crafts - expand their world. With babies, the first thing I do is have them touch something - usually a plant.

Love the vintage look; things that are old. Things from old books, old tickets, pictures. I like sorcerer pics, dark, mystical visions. Love the steampunk look!

The following likes could be for anything to do with rub-ons, stamps, die-cuts, etc. I really like rub-ons.

I like: faux stitching, doodles, trees, wild animals & bugs, birds, ocean stuff, travel, nature, ducks (the real ones, not the rubber ducky ones), horses, grass, lighthouses, fairies, mushrooms, dinosaurs. dragons, pin-ups, tasteful nudes. I'd love to get some decent punch-outs or die-cuts - unusual ones, not hearts and squares (who doesn't have those?)

If somebody wants to trade some punch-outs or die-cuts with me I have a cool carousal (horse) punch, and others (wings) - I can send a list of what I have. Just pm me.

Feb 25/17 - Since this was written, I have a ton more die-cuts to share!

I like pictures that could be incorporated into an ATC - kind of off the wall, or macabre, quirky, not cutsey. Dragons, mermaids, Boris type art.

I like Native art, and love African masks.

I'd really like it if you wrote a bit about what you're sending me - why you like it and what you'd like me to know about it. Or even just something about yourself!

I don't wear jewellry, but I'd like to get "parts" that I could use - I'm getting into Steampunk art.

I love "Classic 45" scrapbooking paper, Zetti, the grunge look, Tim Holtz.

If you're from another country (besides the U.S.), I'd love it if you'd send me a coin or two from where you live. Or a postcard (especially a map card), or a postage stamp (used is fine), or anything else different from what I'm used to seeing here.



I don't like any kind of pink, bright or otherwise, and don't like pastel colours. I still remember, as a child, my bedroom walls painted a pale green!

Disney, cutsie, lots of small anything, pet things, stuff for kids (mine are grown), wedding items, stickers with sayings on them, religious themes. Crayon drawings of "cute" things. I'm way too old to appreciate them - I'll give them to the young folk in the family :)

I don't need stickers - don't use the ones I have, so please don't send any. I don't like too much glitter, but I use Wink of Stella. I don't like stickers on the art you send me. Unless it's so nice, you can hardly tell it's a sticker! You know what I mean.

If you're sending me a recipe (food or drink), I don't like coffee, coconut, tequila or scotch. I'm not an adventurous person with many types of seafood (oysters, sardines & mussels), though I like fish and large shrimp.

November 4/13


I seem to really be interested in postcards lately! I've been fortunate to receive some nice ones (that I can't ever find - in stores, anyway). The only ones I had were the touristy ones that I bought when away from my city.


Store bought pc's: I'd like mine sent blank/unwritten on, in an envelope, if it's allowed in the swap (or even if it isn't).

I'm not going to join many "naked and stamped" postcard swaps - I like to send some of 'em on when needed (themed swaps, more than one in an envelope, etc). I keep lots, just cause I like them so much.

I like lots of things, but anything "different" would be great.

If you sent the following, you'd be just fine:

map cards, map cards, map cards!! If you have any Canadian map cards, I'd love them. I'm also trying to collect all the US states, too (would love some from Hawaii / Alaska, but I also need others, especially from the east and south of this world).

steampunk, retro ads, nudes, naughty, fairies, dinosaurs, sci-fi, fantasy, monsters, old comics, movie posters, some movie stars, space (stars), water (rivers, waterfalls, lakes, ocean - I love water), lighthouses, tropical (palm trees, beaches), ships (rocket, sailing, etc), muscle cars (I used to have a 1972 Challenger - I rue the day I sold it), aboriginal scenes/portraits (from any country), art, bright and colourful (NO PINK or PASTEL for me) and I've never seen a Christmas postcard (I have some of these now - cool, and thanks)!

I don't much care for touristy ones (but LOVE map cards). If you send a touristy one, I'd prefer it to have multiple scenes). I'd love to get ones from someplace other than North America (except Hawaii and Alaska; don't have many of them) - Africa, South America, China, Russia, Scotland, Ireland, the UK, Spain, Italy, etc etc.

No kittens, puppies or cute things, unless it's a human baby. I do like horses. Not crazy about vintage, unless it's something to do with the above likes. I don't like them just because they're old. I was recently sent a vintage pc of a Hula dancer - that was fine.

Homemade postcards: I like to store them in photo albums, so please (if you can), keep them 4 x 6" so they'll fit (10 x 15 cm). These can be sent naked OR in an envelope.


December 11, 2016

I always rate and I don't flake. If I ever do, I'll take this statement off.

Because, why would I want to earn that 3, or (shudder) 1?

If you get my swap, I'd appreciate a rating. If you didn't, please let me know so I can fix the problem. After a month or so, I will pm/email if I haven't been rated to see if my item made it to your house, but I shouldn't have to.

Dec 11/16 - I care that you don't want me to bother you to see if you forgot to rate me, but I care more about getting my ratings, so I will be contacting you. Hope you read profiles like I do.

Postal workers in Canada don't work on weekends, so if the send date is a Saturday/Sunday, they won't be postmarked until Monday. I try to have it done before the w/e in those cases. I always give extra time for things - especially overseas, before rating (and will check before giving a 1 or 3). Even crossing the Canada/US border seems to take forever sometimes.

I will sometimes put something in the closest mailbox and hit "sent" that day, but it won't be picked up until the next p/u day. I don't worry about it, if it isn't due. If it's DUE to go out that day, I take it to the post office, so the stamp will have the correct date on it.

I don't automatically give a heart because of extra's. Except for postcard swaps - if you've given me an extra one, from my profile likes, on top of sending me great cards, then why wouldn't you deserve a heart?

If something makes me say "wow", you'll get a heart. Even if it has pink in it, you might still get a heart, but you'll know it's your art that got it for you. Hope you'll do the same for me.

October 16, 2017

If I send you something and the glue (or anything else) hasn't done its job, please tell me!

I've learnt recently that I was given a heart for a swap where the backing had fallen off the ATC - of course, I thought everything was fine. Then, much later, I was told my work was "subpar".

How can I fix things if I'm given a heart for something that wasn't considered "up to par"?

I want a heart if it's extra special for you - that's why Swap-bot introduced them; what they're for. If you think my swap is "subpar", please let me know, so I can fix it.

Response: Thank you! I'm glad I could do something to help :)
Comment: Love the cards Sandra and thanks for the extra! Hope we swap again :)
Response: I'm sure we will - thanks for signing up, and rating so nicely!

Response: Hi, Angie - you're so welcome and I'm happy you appreciate the work of TWO artists, lol!
MamaMangrove rated for NYUP: 4 pc's in an envelope #5 on Jan 3, 2018
Comment: Thanks for the cards & your comments. My faves are the Anne Taintor & Frida in tears. Hope you're enjoying x-country skiing. I took it up to stave off cabin fever the year I lived in Alaska & loved the peaceful solitude as well as the work-out.
Response: They were my faves, too! It'll be awhile for me to be so comfortable skiing for it to be anything else besides a workout, lol. I have to look at the ground all the time :)
Comment: I feel as though I was unfairly rated. I went out of my way to communicate when I realized I was going to be late. I also went over and above the swap requirements to confiscate for the late swap. I was accused of not communicating when I clearly have proof that is false....I was given a three despite my actions to rectify the late mailing situation. I also was ignored when I questioned the rating and received no response what so ever. This was my first bad experience on swapbot and receiving my damaging rating has been very discouraging and has caused damage to swaps that I have signed up for. it was very disappointing.
Response: Happy to hear that, thanks! 1/4/18: My computer crashed two days ago and is in the shop - I've borrowed my sisters computer so I can answer emails. This is a dropped rating because you don't like the rating I gave you. The only proof you have that you communicated is the one on the swap itself which I explained I didn't get until Dec 24. You have to pm directly, and this was even told to you by another swapper. There was no mention of stamping on the gelli papers being necessary in the swap description, so your desire to "confiscate" this swap has happened - to me. This is definitely NOT your first bad experience on SB, since this is your third profile. You have left many people with a bad experience with your flaking. My rating on your swap is earned. My rating being a 5 with a heart and now a 3 is not. I was worried that you would retaliate, so I have a screenshot of your first rating. If, of course, it's still on my computer when I get it back. You can hope it isn't, I guess. 1/11 Yay, it is! And, it's on my profile.
Comment: Thank you so much, these postcards are all just truly divine! Expect a story in the mail soon, and definitely let me know if you dont get it!
Response: Yay! You are so welcome, and I look forward to your story :)
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for the extra full packet of goodies! I really enjoyed receiving some new die cuts to try and reading your lovely letter. If I get more deer in the future I'll be sure to keep you in mind! :)
Response: Glad you're pleased with what I sent - thanks for your great comment and rating!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card, Sandra, and the sloth - ohmygosh!!!- pattern! Adorable!!! I can’t wait to try making it =) I hope you’ve had a lovely holiday. Your grandson is a real cutie pie! (My son is named Logan, too.) Happy New Year!
Response: You're very welcome! That cutie pie is sitting at the table having his breakfast right now - he loves his scrambled eggs! Thanks for your lovely comment and rating :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely Christmas card and the postcards! Love the Great Blue Heron pc, and the Halloween one is amazing! I didn't have one of Tucson so it is appreciated even if it isn't the capital! Thanks for the used stamps, too, I like to use them on atcs! Hope you had a Merry Christmas, too!
Response: I appreciate your rating, and I'm happy the Tucson card is welcome! I did have a nice Xmas, thank you! I fled the city - my husband and I went to Banff and tried our new x-country skis. Now, I'm making a turkey for two of my girls and my grandsons on Friday, so I didn't escape anything - lol. I'm sure it will be a fine day, too.

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful card and letter. I often can't remember where I get my cards, so I am thrilled with your descriptions. Glad you like the coast trip. We did that once and it was spectacular. This year we are going on a cruise of the Columbia River which should be interesting. Happy New Year!
Response: A river cruise in NA? Wow, that should be great! I've only heard of river cruises in Europe. Thanks for your nice comment and heart rating - glad you like what I sent :)

Response: Oh, I'm happy it made it to you! Thanks for the lovely comment and rating :)
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and postcards and the tought you put into this swap :) I enjoyed reading your letter. We have a very lowkey Christmas, on Christmas eve me, my mum and grandmother, have canapes and small dishes or a cheese plate and we watch a movie together. On Christmas day my sister comes and I prepare a roast dinner and exchanges gifts. I have a small family we are only 8 in total. My aunt, uncle and 2 nephews come to visit on New Years eve and we have diner together. Today me and my collegue decided that every tuesday before the Christmas break we have will be Christmas sweater day. We both showed up for work wearing one, it was fun. I would love to celebrate a big Christmas, we don't have a lot of traditions surounding Christmas in my family, I'm always the one whose most excited. I think the one postcard is Russian, it says 'Mockba' on the back wich I think is the Russsian for Moskow. I hope you have a wonderful time during the holidays!! Merry Christmas!!
Response: Thank you for such a nice comment; sometimes small and low-key is nice. Your get togethers sound peaceful. Our family get togethers are loud and argumentative; the grass is always greener on the other side, I guess! Thank you for showing me your Xmas, and for the heart rating - Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you!! Love it!! Have a wonderful Christmas!
Response: So happy to hear you'll like to hang it on your tree! You have a great Xmas, too, and a very Happy New Year :)

Hi Sandra Received the so cool Charlie's birds today. Thank you! I've loved robins since I was a little boy, observing them on the long walk to school. My sympathy to you on the loss of your sister. She sounds like an awesome person. I lost mine six years ago, but it seems like six months. She, too, was, like your sister a very special , free-spirited person. "Dancing in the streets in ridiculous costumes"; I now have an additional goal in life!

MamaMangrove on Jan 13, 2018:

The Charley Harper birds for the PH Forum tag arrived today. I'm especially enamored of the Heron & the Anhinga, both common birds around here but more wonderful seen through the eye of C.H. Thanks!
