About Me

After all these years of never having Covid; now I have it & it is kicking my butt. I may be a few days late getting some swaps out. Hope to be on track soon... My sister passed away unexpectedly in September. I can not stress enough that women need to make sure they are getting their mammograms & female parts tested. It could save your life!!

.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, Queen,etc. Penatronix is a new to me group that I really like, also.

Favorite Television

Don't really tend to watch much tv. Walking Dead, Masked Singer, Curse Of Oak Island, Top Level Chef, 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. Just not enough hours in the day!!

I like making mini pocket letters, ATCs, hand made post cards, scrapbook pages, chunky pages, very basic journaling, etc. I like going to thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales to find goodies to craft with or recycle.
