About Me

EDITED 09/30/3023: I like to read, make junk journals, altered books, ephemera from cut-outs from magazines, cards, scraps of paper, ribbon, buttons and other bits and pieces I find.

I LOVE YouTube!!! I follow many crafters and various channels. I like documentaries, history, wild animal cams, some music channels and many other channels that catch my eye.

READING. I got hooked on reading when I was in the 1st grade. It was a highlight of my days in the summer when the bookmobile would come. I started out reading mysteries and love them to this day. I have many many favorite authors. To name just a few; Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Robert B. Parker (RIP). Jonathan Kellerman, John Sanford, and more which I will add later. The list keeps growing as I discover new authors. I welcome any recommendations and would really like to hear about the books and authors you like. I don't read as much as I used to as now I spend a lot of my time on Swap Bot.

I love animals, especially cats; big cats and domesticated cats. I also am fond of dogs, birds, elephants, and cows. Actually I love almost all animals. I love their eyes.

I collect USA postage stamps for the most part, but now also collect stamps worldwide thanks to Swap Bot. I got my first stamp album when I was around 8 or 9 years old. I still have it to this day. So, I've had it over 60 years. Stamps are tiny works of art.

My favorite color is green. As a young girl my favorite color was Cobalt Blue, so it comes in pretty close to Green! Actually, I love color. I think about all the other colors that are truly beautiful.

I want to be the best that I can be. I want to never stop learning and striving to be better. I make mistakes but I try to learn by those mistakes and move on.

I am a Christian and the Lord Jesus Christ is my Saviour.

Comment: I adore that we have so much in common.
Comment: Thank you for the mail art. I was disappointed that you sent me a card with glitter. I mentioned in my profile that I didnโ€™t want anything with glitter.
Response: I'm so sorry Linda. I always read profiles but I really messed up this time, as I must have forgotten. ๐Ÿ˜ข. I will try to make it up to you.
kromo rated for Upcycled Christmas Card PC #1 on Nov 22, 2023
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Christmas postcard. Yes, green is a wonderful color. Lol. And I feel lucky that the girls still like to come over and bake even though they are growing up. To be honest I think they like the eating part at this point and just donโ€™t want to make them on their own but I wonโ€™t complain, maybe itโ€™s a bit of both. ๐Ÿ˜† merry Christmas ๐ŸŽ„

I really love the postcards that you sent me for PH Dec. WTA! The Lil Red pieces are incredible as well. Such a lovely package to arrive home from work to. Especially on the day that we are to receive 14" additional inches of snow (we already have 9" on the ground from a couple days ago!). Plus 50 MPH wind gusts. You made me smile on this blustery day :) <3 Tracy
