About Me

Hello from Wisconsin! We are known for beer & brats, cheese in every variety, the Green Bay Packers, the WI Badgers, country music festivals, WI Dells, farming, and Friday night fish fries. I live in a small town near the state line between WI and IL. I retired from teaching last year after 33 years dedicated to students with special needs. In late summer of 2014, we got the devastating news that my DH of 28 yrs had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I lost him on Easter Sunday. To cope with the grief and loneliness, I renewed my love for crafting and it has been good therapy for me. I have a grown daughter, Heather, age 25, with no grands in sight. Some of my favorites are: pink, doing DIY projects around the house, paper crafting, baking, gardening, thrifting, reading, and spending time with my pets. I love social media, esp Pinterest, YouTube, and Instagram .

Themes I like: Farmers Market,woodland animals/plants ,flowers/floral designs, sewing, field guides related to nature, hearts, dogs-esp. Beagles, cats/kittens, animal lover in general, chickens/roosters, postage stamps, mail art, collage, camera graphics, reading/books/print, vintage inspired, botanical images, sunflowers, lace trim, Pioneer Woman style, French Postal-script/icons, mason jars, cupcakes/sweets, butterflies, birds, (esp. hummingbirds and goldfinches) Tim Holtz style, baking/recipes, mixed media.

Things I'd Like to Receive: Used postage stamps, old playing cards and postcards, scraps of fabric, embroidery, fun pens/stationery, travel memorabilia,tickets,clips, stickers, napkins for decoupage, charms, gelli prints, vellum, washi samples, simple recipes, coupons, quotes, old book pages/ephemera for junk journals, positive/inspirational messages, handmade envies, I'll love anything you send, because it came from the heart.

Favorite Books

I enjoy talking, listening, and writing about books and authors. I'm excited to follow the launch of the Great American Read by PBS that has formulated a list of the top 100 favorite novels. It's fun to hear what other people are reading, so I thought the Bookworm/Penpal swap would be that perfect opportunity. I have a pretty wide range of interests. I like both fiction and non-fiction, but mostly read fiction. My favorite genre is historical fiction, with these titles in my favorites list: Gone With the Wind (Margaret Mitchell) Little Women(Louisa May Alcott) To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee) My Antonia (Willa Cather) The Hiding Place (Corrie Ten Boom) I also love mysteries/thrillers, and biographies/memoirs. Recently started journaling about reading. I like to collect book quotes. I'll read a print book, e-books, or audio-books. I like to listen to podcasts that talk about books/authors. I'm the nerd that watches C-span Book T.V. (sshhhh)🤓 and I recently discovered Book Tube. Wow, I have a long list of TBRs!

Comment: ♥ Thanks for the fabulous matchbook mini. The washi seems to be sticking just fine. I have learned that if you can iron the washi in place it works better. Just remember to protect your surface and iron with paper. Thanks for all the great extras as well. I need some of the Spring Market paper. It is indeed beautiful. I hope your flower garden prospers.
Response: So glad you like the matchbook mini. Interesting tip about ironing the washi. Hadn't heard that before. I don't have an iron right now, but if I see a cheap one, I'll pick it up and give that technique a try!
