About Me

I always try to send swaps early but have had the misfortune of something getting lost in the mail. I want to be a dependable partner and welcome a message if something hasn't arrived when you think it should. I promise to resend as soon as possible.

I'm a retired RN with 5 children, 8 grandchildren and one great grandson who is growing up fast. I enjoy family get togethers, working on projects with friends and creating things.I read a lot but watch little TV.

Read mostly mysteries and some fav authors are James Patterson, John Sandford, Navada Barr and Earlene Fowler.

Favorite music is Classical, Christian and Country.

Favorite artwork is Vintage, Asian, Steampunk, Nature, Things with lots of color and just Black and white. Also enjoy embellishments and some glitter.

Dislike Occult,Nudes, Too cute, politics and very hot weather.

Favorite Crafts

I joined Swapbot for ATCs, inchies amd zentangles. In Delaware there isn't much interest in trading these things. I still love zentangle but my interest in paper crafts has really grown. I'm now making altered tags, zines, Postcards and other mail art. At my house most large cereal boxes turn into mixed media master boards and I have discovered the love of journals. I really enjoy Round Robin Journal swaps and find most partners put a lot of effort in every page.

I'd like to say something about extras. I do appreciate them but do not expect them nor do they influence ratings. I usually give a heart when someone puts a lot of thought and effort into a swap and always if I really like what is sent. I admit I do love getting Mini zines. I have a growing collection of them that started when one of my partners added one in with her swap. She also encouraged me to try one and finally I did.I got the courage to join a zine go round and am having so much fun adding to whatever has been started.

Comment: Joan, I loved your May holiday zine! The backgrounds and images were perfect for the holidays you chose. I especially liked Lost Sock Day and Frog Jumping Day - both of those had me laughing. Thanks for sending the extra one for December - you definitely have a 'zine style' and I really like it! I hope to swap with you again in the future! Happy swapping!
Response: Thanks for your lovely response and the heart. So glad you liked them, I so enjoy making them. I will definitely be in this series for the rest of the year.

Comment: I always know I'll get something amazing from you, lady! Starting with the envelope. Then the LOVELY zine! The green!!! And all the cool things. I love the art piece you chose. Also my FAVORITE snack I'm mad about right now is yogurt-covered pretzels, so yay! I'm sure I ate some on April 26. I like how you made it look like you were unzipping the plaid page for zipper day. So cool. And as if all that wasn't enough, an AMAZING second zine! I'm so spoiled. I appreciate it SOOO much! Anyway, thanks and I'm sorry for the late rating. I've not been well and am catching up tonight.
Response: Glad you enjoyed the zines! I have been having the best time making them. Thanks for the great comments and the heart. Hope you continue to feel better.

Comment: Hi Joan! These little embellishments are gorgeous! You used so many lovely little layers. Love the beautiful touches of yarn, lace and ric-rac and your birds are delightful. Thank you so much--I will definitely hoard these and use them as templates for my own creations. What a wonderful swap!
Response: Thanks for your lovely comments and the heart. I;m enjoying these stacks and it was a challenge to make them smaller and still use lots of layers. I love using scraps.

Thank you so much for the OMAE: MMH Arty Envelope Tag. I was hoping you'd do outer space. The envelope makes me so happy. I love the little astronauts. It's a good thing the aliens seem friendly! LOL!
