About Me

All righty, then. WA state is back on mandatory lock down. I understand the reasoning on it; just feel bad for all the businesses/people that are directly affected by this. Unfortunately, I think Covid is going to be here for quite some time; guess we'll all have to hunker down & ride the wave out. Keep safe, guys!!

Wow!! I can't believe how long it is taking mail to get where it needs to go. I sent a post card to California & it took three weeks to get there!! Sent a note card to SC & it took four weeks to get there!!. Please be patient with how long it is taking the mail to be delivered & I will do the same. It is just crazy what is going on with the post office right now. Covid has really changed a lot of things.

.I tend to like music from the 70's & 80's artists like: Elton John, Cyndi Lauper, Tina Turner, Journey, Rod Stewart, Pet shop Boys, etc. You know, music that is considered to be oldies now!! Ha Ha Ha

Favorite Television

Don't really tend to watch much tv. I love a lot of shows off of Sy-Fy. The Prodigal Son, The Magicians, Vikings, Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones, Van Helsing, Forged In Fire, etc.

Favorite Crafts

Most of the crafting I do is with rubber stamps, clip art, recycled items. Mostly making ATCs & cards but want to learn how to journal & make flip books, too. So many crafts; not so many hours in the day!

II like making (but am slow at it) pocket letters, ATCs, cards, scrapbook pages, etc. I like going to thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales to find goodies to craft with or recycle.

Comment: Thank you for making my mailbox happy through a rough time in my life!
Response: Aww, MaryAnn!! I am sorry to hear that you are going through such a rough tie.This has been a bad year for many pe
Comment: This was so sweet! I love the card and the washi! I needed Christmas washi soooo bad!! Thank you sooo much! I'd love to talk about our chronic pain! PM me anytime! I just got a new puppy I'm training as a service dog!! 🐶❤️ I just bought neoprene (I think that's what they are) bottles to start him on scent training to alert when I'm going to have a flare, PTSD flashback, panic attack, migraine, before a dizzy spell, etc. He's half blue merle Aussie and half Golden Retriever. 😍 People lose their minds when they can't touch him. 😂🤣
Response: You are so welcome! I didn't know that people could train their own service animal? Do you think it is hard to do? He sounds so cute but you are right; people just don't get it about not petting the service animals.
