About Me

I am the divorced mom of a wonderful son. I love to read mystery books, paint, craft cards, Art Decos and photography. Swapbot sound like a ton of fun, because who doesn't love snail mail! Such a treat to get something other than bills. I look forward to learning more and jumping right in. I work as an Administrative Assistant for the Director of Tech, and it's one of the coolest jobs I've had. The people I work with are hilarious, dysfunctional and a second family. I live to laugh, and am thankful for the many blessings in my life. I also love ALL things Irish!! Stickers, stationary, torn pages from books..the sky is the limit :)

Favorite Books

Oh my Lord where do I start?! I'm all over the place with books. I find I can't help but buy Stephen King immediately upon release, read a lot of teen fiction at the advice of my kiddo...mystery. ..quirky like Christopher Moore...Max Lucado. Find myself gravitating to Bible studies, but have so many now I don't know where to start! My son is ADHD and has Aspergers so I read up on that as well. My library card and Goodwill serve me well. Piles of books are at my house.

Favorite Music

I tend to be all over the place with music. The only kind that I can't latch onto so far is country and rap. Artists ranging from Zeppelin to Dan Mangan to metallica. Just depends on where and what I'm doing. Current obsession Kings of Leon.

Favorite Crafts

I love to paint, scrapbook, make cards, photography, and Art Decos. I'm always open to new things, and enjoy the creative process. It's wonderfully relaxing. I bought myself a journal as well to create pages of things you all send that really speak to me. I'm trying out ATC cards now, but am far from a pro, so be kind. LOL

Coffee over tea please

I received a great suggestion. I love coffee and super dark brew tea. I tend to not enjoy lighter teas. I'm pretty worthless without my caffeine, so the stronger the better.

About me A-Z...a work in progr

A - Animals - love them B - Blue is my favorite color C - Camping is one of my happy places D - Dogs have a special place in my heart E - Everything Doctor Who F - Family is number one in my book G - God H - Hiking is one of my fav. past-times I - I would like to learn more about journaling J - Joker - I love to make people laugh K - Keep chickens - have 16 right now L - Loving the Lord :) M - music lover (except for old school rap/country) N - nature embracer O - Outside is my haven P - painting/hiding/finding rocks is my newest hobby Q - quirky in some ways (I don't like my feet touched, so pedicures don't happen.) R - My son's name starts with this letter S - Single Mom T - Theater buff (both television, movies and stage) U - Unicorns are so cute! V - Very open minded W - Worthless without my coffee X - "Xperiencing" Life is a great joy Y - Young at heart Z - Zootopia was a cute movie!

Painting and Hiding rocks

I am a member of a Facebook group called Battle Ground Rocks. We paint and hide rocks for others to find with messages, pictures. ..the works. The idea is to spread joy and smiles when you randomly find one. I'm always on the look out for painting pens, and gel pens. It's a blast, and if you are interested in starting one in your community let me know. :)

No Thanks You's

This is a short list of no thank you's, because I'm pretty open to most things and love experiencing what others enjoy.

  1. Please no pornography-type images

  2. Please no Teacher/Award stickers

  3. Please don't attack my faith. I am WIDE open to others sharing there's (and am quite accepting of everyone), as long as we all roll with each other in an accepting way.

  4. Please don't be rude, mean or judgmental of me, what I make or what I send. If I have made a mistake in a swap, please allow me to right it by messaging me in a considerate and respectful way and you can bet your bottom dollar I'll do my best to make it right. Life is to short to allow these negative things into my life, and I won't put it into yours. I promise you, I'm doing my best.

That's it - told ya it was short!

  2. Anything that can be used for Decos (ribbon, brads, charms, borders, etc.)

Comment: Yes, these guys do LOOK relaxed. I'm guessing they were not at all though. Modeling seems like a tough business. Thanks so much for the postcard, Dina!
Response: You are absolutely correct! Modeling doesn't look like it could possibly be relaxing does it. Glad you liked the card. Thank you for the rating!

CSG~Fruit of the Spirit, #7 Gentleness

Gentleness means to be tender hearted, mild, mellow, and sweet in nature.

1 Peter 3:4 but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious i the sight of God.

This verse applies to me because I am a mild mannered and mellow person. I am a tender hearted person who enjoys helping elderly and disabled people.
