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: Wow Joan, there is so much to admire in the postcard you made for me! Fish, favorite colors, lots of layers. And I appreciate you describing how it was made - it gives me some ideas to try.
Response: So glad you liked the PC. I always enjoy making backgrounds as long as playing with paint is involved. The fish reminds me of a fish tank, relaxing to watch! Thanks for your generous comments and the heart.

Comment: Joan, your July zine was fantastic! I loved the fireworks cover and Fried Chicken Day, Junk Food Day and Ice Cream Day made me hungry. I wondered if you were hungry when you were making the zine... Lol! Thanks also for the Coffee and Tea Zine! I like Earl Grey tea, especially with Snickerdoodle cookies, but coffee is my preferred drink. Thanks for a great swap!
Response: You are so welcome and thanks for all your nice comments and the heart. I like Earl Gray with snickerdoodles too.

Comment: Thanks for this beautiful tile! I love the tangles on the envie and the card too! It is always such a joy to swap with you! We just had our first rain in 8 weeks. The clouds would come, but not release their burdens! We are very lucky we did not have any fires here, like they did on the mainland, But the record for heat was broken by ***10 Degrees*** last week!!! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Thanks so much for your lovely rating and the heart. We have been having tons of rain and record breaking heat in between. At least the rain helps with the heat when it comes.

Many thanks for the lovey OMAE Affirmative Tag! I love it and indeed do have two cats as part of my family... One handsome tuxedo and a fluffy brown mackerel torbie girl. They own us, to be honest! Your tangled card is gorgeous and the envelope colors are my faves. Happy summer, Carroll
