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 24- 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 💖

About Me

I've recently had a big flaker for an art journal.(Barbara Marcotte-dragonangel517) We had 2 months to work on it, so it was a major project. If you can't send out for some reason, you should at least contact the person. I would be happy to change the rating if she decides to send it, but at this point, that's not very likely.

In regards to my favorite colors, I'm especially fond of all shades of pink and blue. But I'm open to all of the colors of the rainbow, there isn't really a color I hate.

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: Oh my gosh Holly...I LOVE this creation! From the way you decorated to the bag to all of the little goodies you placed (carefully) inside...it is so lovely. I have been flaked on a lot recently so this made me smile and realize that there are still a lot of responsible, creative people here on SB. I truly do love everything you sent and appreciate the care you took putting it together. XOXO Happy early Valentine's Day! ;-)
Response: Yay! I'm so happy to hear that you loved the Valentine flip bag. It is really encouraging to know that you appreciated my efforts and took the time to write about it. Hate to hear you've had flakers, that's disgusting. I don't know how people can live with themselves doing that. It's very disappointing. Thanks again for your positive comments and 💟!

Comment: Dearest Holly, thank you so much for your favorite things list. All the extras are going to be put to good use. I hope that your nephew and his girlfriend are enjoying the heat, I'm honestly sick of 84 degree weather during Winter time....it gets to be a bit much. My electrical bill is very high! (everything here in California is so overpriced) just like I'm sure you're sick of so much snow and windchill. Have an awesome month of February and enjoy your crafting.
Response: This was a fun swap, hadn't really given A-Z favorites a thought before😁. I don't think I would like a year round hot climate, but I sure do miss the sun shining. Thanks for the ♥.
