ABOUT ME: I am a Christian woman, retired from office work and living with my husband in the countryside. I have one grown daughter who is a nurse. I enjoy watching the many birds and animals that come onto the property especially the large gray squirrels, quail and deer.

HOBBIES: Paper crafts are my passion. Give me paper, paste and glue and I'm happy. Throw in some coloring agents and I'm ecstatic. I am a mixed media artist (totally amateur) and a greeting card maker. I am a snail mail enthusiast and love writing to my pen friends. I have recently begun making junk journals and LOVE IT.

INTERESTS: Besides the above, I love to read, play word games, visit museums and browse through antique shops. I like learning new things and taking various courses on-line.

FAVORITE BOOKS/AUTHORS: The Bible, Inspector Gamache novels by Louise Penny, anything by L. M. Montgomery, Jane Austen, almost any mystery novel, but especially British ones

Comment: Carolyn, I am thrilled with the adorable "best friend" ATC you made for me! I wasn't given the gift of drawing and painting beyond a grade school level, but I have been gifted with the ability to appreciate the wonderful work of other artists...and I SO appreciate your gift! Bowser is just darling, and I thank you for him, as well as for the massive pile of gorgeous extras you sent along (the llama greeting card...my heart!). Thank you for being a most wonderful swap partner! (ETA: did you cross stitch the little star? On perforated paper? You ROCK, my dear!!!)
