+++++UPDATE+++++ today at one of my happy places, the mailboxes, I got a bit of discouraging news from 2 other neighbors talking. It seems we are having challenges with our mail. One particular neighbor was on her way to talk with me, we have shared a few moments as I have opened some of my happy mail from swaps (she knows how much I love them and is amazed at the things I have received) I have personally in the last few month hand delivered a few letters and packages up the hill knowing how wonderful getting snail mail. I have also had letters layed at my front door and missed important communications. One neighbor has talked with the USPS and it seems it will be a little bit if trial and error and some possible challenges. Please stick with me and keep the lines of communications open as we try to work this out. It would mean a great deal to me. Thank you so much.
Hello.... greeting the Pacific North West! ðŸŒ²ðŸŒ²ðŸŒ². Born in Boston though - Boston Proud.... I am so excited about beginning this wonderful swap-bot experience. I've been "crafty" all my life. My interests are varied. I was a stay at home mom until all my children were in grade school. In order to have the same schedule as my children I became a school bus driver, and 19 years later I'm still sitting in the drivers seat - Oh boy the stories I could tell!
I used to teach Kindergarten before staying home with my fabulous children which was a perfect fit for me because Kindergarten is education disguised in one big craft session at that age. I have 2 living Children, Ashley-29 and Chelsea-27, my son Joshua passed away Sept 11, 2010 at 25, we are blessed with a lifetime of laughter and love from the short time we had with him. That loss does not define me, in fact it has made me a better person and I know he would be proud of the person I am.
I love to walk and swim, hiking and a good bike ride. Camping and walking on the beach.I have a great sense of humor and love random acts of kindness and putting a smiles on faces....... and ice cream cones, dipped in chocolate of course - I love that crunchy stuff!!!
What would the world be without music..... right now my playlist has on it...
Rihanna's "Love on the brain",
Adel's "Hello" - Well all of Adel,
Mumford and Son, Macy Gray, Journey, Duffy, Chicago, Elton John, Michael Jackson, U2, Train, Beetles, Tracy Chapman, well I could go on and on. I'm kinda an eclectic person of sorts and it translates in my music, reading and crafts!!
I love to read and belong to a book club. What fun it is and it broadens my reading (I won't lie though some of the selections make me wonder... just who is this person). I like easy reading but don't object trying something new. Some books on my shelf.... Girl on the Train, Winter Garden, Man Called Ove, A wolf called Romeo, The Shack, James Patterson, The Women in Cabin 10, The Light Between Oceans, Big Little Lies, Unbroken, again very eclectic. I love bookstores - older ones more so and libraries and the feel of a good book in my hands - seriously I like turning pages - but I confess I do have electronic ones too - purely for when I have field trips on the bus...... right?!.
Some of my favorites, Pride and Prejudice The Help, Nims Island, Training Day, Eight Below, Marvel movies - Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Crash, Forrest Gump, The Princess Bride, I like based on true life uplifting movies, Action and adventure, Not good with scary, scary movies. No Saw or Geepers Creaper ðŸ˜¬ Yikes!!!!
Hmmmm - there just isn't enough time or ones attention span to really do my crafting justice...!! ðŸ˜Š So let me just say ........ I ....L O V E ..... Paper and all paper.crafts but have have been seen doing - Knitting, Crochet, beading, Cross stitch - But mostly I'm hooked on paper crafts. I do scrapbooking, journaling, making my own envelopes and cards, and ATC's, I'm learning about pocket letters, I think I'm leaning toward the mini kind! Just found out about Inchies and Twinchies, I mean REALLY Inchies and Twinchies.......
I do want to say If for some reason you don't receive something from me please let me know I would love to do it again, it's sad not getting a little something in the mail when waiting for it, right?!
II L O V E collecting PC's!! . My favorites are the artistic kind, black& white, black & white with color accents, unusual and unique - because honestly I truly have a lot of tourist type cards, ...... well send me something you'd like yourself and then tell me a little bit about you.. your profession, dreams, passions, what you love about your culture and I love quotes.TRULY I just love receiving them so just have fun picking it.
Anything Political, religious or nudity please.
I LOVE Coca-Cola, and coke art, American Flags (vintage & country best), PC,s, Stationary and notecards, die cuts, Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture, Daisy and Sunflowers, Watermelon, Owls, ladybugs, elephants and giraffes, Ribbon and lace, Journals - bullet journals, calligraphy - Fountain pens, ATC's, Vintage, photography, paper craft embellishments, I collect playing cards (Im getting a little crazy about it - don't know why I like them so much, the joker would be totally awesome... but really I collect them for the fabulous backs.... so it really is just all about that..., zentangle, beautiful paper, fashion, bookmarks, beautiful stickers (might I add, that since I am a bus driver perhaps no kids or teacher types stickers would be nice - I have a pretty good selection), truly I just plain love seeing the little treasure people send me hidden in all shapes and sizes of envelopes that await me in the mailbox.....
Warmer earth tone greens, purples like eggplant and deap lilac, yellows like mustard, oranges like pumpkin and corals and usually do a lot of black accents
Love red, white and blue - purple, greens and yellow or brown with pink or blue or green combinations are pretty too
Well that about does it for now... thank you for forging through my profile, I'm bit of a talker and that translate to talking with my hands as well as in my writing too!!!! I love swap-botting and I feel like our swaps are like little acts of kindness toward each other and the connection one feels from them is... well... sort of magical... am I crazy!!!!! lol
