About Me

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

Getting started on 2017 AND starting a Planner. 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!

.Have recently started making quilts & some sewing. Fun - Fun

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....:)

Learning more about applicates on fabric.! Maybe someday, an Art Quilt.. :)

Love to Read as well as a big Movie Buff... .


Favorite Crafts

Paper Collages -

Photography - Altered Books ..

Painting/Adult Coloring

Making Quilts(crazy- string - scrappy type)

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 -

. 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)

to name only a couple that can be viewed over & over for me!

Favorite Books

I enjoy a wide variety of reading -

From James Patterson to Traci Peterson -

Also poetry and/or Christian books

Always ready for a good mystery -

Just really enjoy reading many different topics/subjects

I really don't buy paperbacks (like the harlequin type) always try to get either the hardback or softcover type books. Paperbacks just seem to get old so fast, pages yellow & fall apart?.....

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



Love to walk in the park(s) for exercise.

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

And "yoga" is so relaxing!!!
