About Me

NOTE: I now have a 3 - This should have been at least a 5 - I met all the swap rules & mailed before time - Please read my response below - ) This was a swap for Fall Items, which I sent, This is All you had listed for crafts......doing red work, making baskets, crosswords and jumble puzzles???? NOTE: The Host of this swap contacted the ADM. to explain, you did not follow the rules..for rating. I guess some people are just unhappy and expect more from others?

UPDATED: 06/2020

NOTE: I try to have any swap I join created/read before the last day to "sign up" to be sure it is possible for me - I send early and I do plan/think about each swap.

Swap U.S.A. only, due to cost and the time factor.... I do not list "flakers" but I have had several.....

Retired and love it - Do volunteer work with the library & some at our Senior Center and our Church Food Pantry.

  • all 3 Sons are grown, have one wonderful daughter in-law & One super grandson.

Getting started on 2020 AND starting a Bullet Journal.. I have some new interest that I would like to learn more and use more........I LOVE Pinterest - Spend too many hours looking all the interesting boards!

Learning to "write" a few short stories and just simple essays - a lifetime journal of my life for the boys to read someday.

.Do some sewing but mostly by hand, only machine sew "Crazy Quilts" And I love Mug Rugs!!!

Painting on canvas with Acrylics (have always used oils) and having fun with it.... Have also gotten caught up in the "Adult Coloring" books....find myself coloring when I should be doing other things....:)

Always have been a Big Movie Buff - I also love to read, always have a book or 2 waiting on me during my quite time.

Like working with all types of Journals, Glue books ...Planners - And did I say: A Big List Maker. !!!! Really a "paper" crafter !!!



Favorite Crafts

Paper Collages -

Photography ..

Painting/Adult Coloring

Making Quilts(crazy- string - scrappy type)

Glue Books

Journals (all types)


Religious cards (like prayer cards)


Always ready to learn something new .!!


Favorite Music

Very easy with music! Must admit, I don't really listen to the "old" C&W music.

..Music is always playing while working on crafts.....

Love the Rock from 70's & 80's.


Enjoy listening to Piano Music....

Favorite Movies

Have been a "Movie Buff" all my life !!!

A variety of movies, not just one type - And have a nice collection of DVD's & Bluerays....

. Action, Drama , some Comedy, some Musicals, Sy Fy, some Horror , a Romance ever so often..

It does seem to me that the "new" movies just don't have the great plot anymore...just a point of view statement.

The Hobbit

Lord of The Rings (all 3)

Jurassic Park (all)


Beetle Juice

And many others...

Favorite Books

I enjoy a wide variety of reading - Many different topics & subjects

From James Patterson to Traci Peterson - really like to discover new authors.

Also poetry and/or Christian books

Always ready for a good mystery -

I really don't buy paperbacks (like the harlequin type) always try to get either the hardback or Soft Cover type books. Paperbacks just seem to get old so fast, pages yellow & fall apart and some have such small print, typed closely together, hard to read.!!

Please, NO smoke smells in the books - that smell just does not go away....



Love to walk for exercise.

And always on the "look-out" for something to photograph!

And my weekly "yoga" class.

And a little "Dancing" helps also
