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, although I've discovered they are good cold, so I'm more open to those. Please no peppermint, just can't wrap my brain around the taste. I'm pretty worthless without my caffeine, so the stronger the better.

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!

Comment: HI Miss Thang! Thank you so much for the wonderful goodies! Your notecard is mindblowing! Cascading Crystals! Whoa! Wow, you sent such a nice party mix! Thank you ever so much. BTW, you sent me a envie in Jul filled with positive quotes. One day, I was needing a push to call the local radio show and do some schstick so I pulled out one of your quotes which read "I am going to succeed because I am crazy enough to think i can" That quote was enough courage to call into the radio show! And I also keep your quotes right here on my desk. I thought you'd get a kick out of that story.
Response: ROFL ROFL - you are hilarious and awesome in case you haven't heard that today (which I'm guessing you have!) Thank you so much for the sweet comments rating and heart - I LOVE that you found a way to use the positive quotes - you just made my heart happy with that story. Keep on keeping on girl. Happy weekend!

Thanks for the great selection of ephemera for the Tag through the Alphabet Tag. How weird is it that you went to EIU and you're on the other side of the country! Lol

Thank you for the wonderful RAK of a $15 Joann Fabric gift card! I have one by me and can't wait to use it!!

Thank you so much for the RAK of vintage Hawaiian postcards! My friend just got back from Seattle and was very excited to have visited the Chihuly exhibit, so it was really cool to see that the notecard you used to send the postcards was an image of his work. Thanks again!

Thank you so much for the amazingly beautiful cards you sent for my postcard RAK! That would have been a wonderful glass exhibit to see in person - and I was stunned at how large many pieces were when I studied the back info!
