About Me

Update-June 19,2010 I have had a lot of health and life issues lately so some swaps are getting mailed a day or two late. I really want to send quality swaps so please bear with me for the time being. I vow to make sure that you get a fun, quality swap.

I am the mother of 7 children- 5 adult and 2 still at home. I also have 3 grandchildren that I love to spend time with. My husband and I also are the proud parents of 5 dogs (4 are rescues) and 3 rescue kitties. I have a cockatiel that is also a rescue. I have done obedience training with all of our dogs and would like to do some trick training. I collect all things frog- figurines, bookmarks, keychains, etc... if it has a frog on it I collect it.
I am fascinated by hummingbirds, butterflies and eagles. I plan my gardens around attracting hummingbirds and butterflies. I recently moved so I am starting all over with my landscaping. Before we moved I had two special gardens- one for my frog figures and stepping stones and another for my angel figures and stones. I almost forgot apples. I love decorating my kitchen and dining room with apples. It sort of gives me Christmas all year long! We live near several state parks and spend a lot of time hiking as a family. This allows me to fulfill my love of birdwatching and photography.

Favorite Music

I listen to all kinds of music and enjoy everything from classical to country to rock. I would have to say that my favorite music comes from musicals. I love folk music and Pete Seeger and Peter, Paul and Mary are my favorite artists. The only music that I don't care for is loud, angry music with foul language.

Favorite Books

I love to read and will read about anything. I would have to say that my favorite authors are Jennifer Chiaverini, Jeanette Oke and Beverly Lewis. I also love children's and young teen's literature. I guess that I would have to say that my favorite book is Good NIght Moon.

Favorite Movies

I am not sure that I really have a favorite movie but there are several that I could watch over and over. The Legally Blonde movies were fun, The Santa Clause series is another that I love to watch over and over and The Princess Diaries movies are a big hit, too.

Favorite Television

I am not much of a television person because I would much rather be doing something creative but I do have a couple of favorites. As a family we watch Wheel of Fortune (which has probably been my favorite game show for as long as I can remember) and The Secret Life of an American Teenager. But, truly, my favorite all time television show was Lassie. I loved that show so much that I cried at the end when Lassie held up her paw.

Favorite Crafts

I love to quilt and sew and just recently learned to crochet. I also love to make my own cards with rubber stamps. I am forever taking pictures of everyone and everything and have tons of scrapbooks that I am working on. I enjoy embroidery but not counted cross-stitch.

Likes and dislikes

Update- now that I have been on swap-bot and done several swaps I am adding something to my likes. I really, really love it when people write a note on a postcard. More than just a hi-here's your postcard for swap "X" and my name is "swap member". I go back and read those messages so please feel free to write a note on the back of your postcard. I like fishing, hiking, camping and playing in the snow. I love flavored coffees and teas. Green is my favorite color but I also like red and teal. I love eating ethnic foods. I love vintage fabrics and traditional calico prints.

I dislike loud angry music and foul language. I also dislike horror movies and shows with fighting and killing. I am not big on wintergreen candy. I do not like itchy fabrics or big floral prints. I am not fond of skulls or anything that depicts violence.

Comment: I loved the package you sent. It was especially fun that you wrapped all of my treasures. What a great idea!!! If you don't mind, I will borrow that idea for some of my packages that I send out. The fabric is definately something that I can use in my quilts for kidlets. I am looking forward to trying the coffee and hot chocolate too. Everything was wonderful and I wish that I could add more than 1 heart. Thank you so much.
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. I loved wrapping each item. It's more fun for me to do that. I think it's wonderful if you want to borrow that idea :)

FYI... I have contacted the swap coordinator of International Tea for 3 and let her know of the situation. (Please read next comment as well)

sweetypiedie on Aug 9, 2010:

FYI - Kelly has contacted me regarding the Fill My Journal swap. Her health is still not the best but she is doing her best to catch up on swaps owed ASAP. I have contacted her partners for the Something Cute Postcard swap also.

Baccarita on Jul 24, 2010:

FYI Kelly is having health issues, I contacted her thru email it's the only way she can stay in touch now. Hope all you will understand... before rating. She cann't come online. Send her big hugs and good wishes for fast recovery.

Thank you so much for the handmade cat toy in the Cats who rule the home tag. My cat alerted me to the package by trying to open it himself and he is now happily rolling about the floor with them. Thank you so much as Happy Cat = Happy Diane
