About Me

***Mar 30 Update--Survived surgery :). Turns out I had ovarian cancer. Dr. believes he got it all (found very early) but I have to start chemo is a couple weeks. Positive thoughts and prayers very much appreciated!

I was a civil servant for 30 years before retiring as a Data Analyst from Department of Defense. I volunteer at our local library pulling books for inter library loans. I also do volunteer work at my church with an emphasis on education and outreach. I take care of three grandsons (ages 8, 7 and 3) living with us (husband Andy) while their mom tries to get her life together.

I love quilting, knitting, reading, letter writing, baking, and soap making.

I love nice paper, pens, fabric and yarn.

*****I ALWAYS send my swaps within a day of signup closing. If you don't receive my swap, please communicate with me first before leaving a bad mark. Thank you!

Favorite Music

I grew up in the 80's, so 80's music rules! I love New Wave, particularly The Split Enz and Crowded House.

Favorite Books

I usually prefer non-fiction, but have just finished the the Harry Potter series. Feeling kind of sad that it's all over. Finished 30 AD by Ted Dekker. An interesting fictional story of Yeshua (Jesus).

I also like James Patterson and John Grisham. Used to love Stephen King but got over it.

Favorite Movies

I like older movies. Favorites include Ben Hur and The Ten Commandments with Charlton Heston; The Ghost and Mrs. Muir with Rex Harrison; the Indiana Jones series. As much as I like the Harry Potter books, I DON'T like the movies!

Favorite Television

I don't watch much tv. It's usually "second hand". When I do, it's usually TLC, the History Channel, National Geographic, and the like.

Quilting

I've been quilting on and off for over 20 years. I have a number of machines and LOTS and LOTS of fabric. I could live on a deserted island (with electricity) the rest of my life and not use all that I have.

Knitting

What can I say? I'm almost a hoarder. I have over 500 skeins of yarn. 98% of it is natural fibers, i.e. wool, followed by cotton and silk. I DO NOT use solely acrylic. Yuck!

Soap Making

I LOVE making Soap! I only started in July 2015 but quickly became obsessed. I made over 300 bars in a few short months. EVERYONE I know got soap for Christmas and their birthday. Made enough room to start again. ;)

Pens and Paper

I do everything 0 or 100%. No in between. The same goes for my love of paper and pens. While I have managed to part with a great deal of my paper, I still have a wonderful collection of pens. I'm always on the look out for the perfect pen. Even when I find one that I am very happy with, I can't help but think there is still one better. Hence my continued quest.

Swap Preferences

My main interest is ATCs, although I enjoy other swaps as well.

Postcards in envelopes unless swap says otherwise.

I appreciate whatever nice things you send. If for some reason it isn't my taste, I'll pass it on to someone who would enjoy it. So bring it on!

Comment: Thanks so much for the cool ATCs! They look so professional, how do you get a national geographic pic to look that good on a card? Modge podge? Glue stick?
Response: I use Scor tape available from Amazon.

Comment: Thank you so much for the great ATCs. I felt quite spoilt getting three of them, all with interesting imagery on them. Are you only interested in found image ATCs, or would you be interested in ATCs with other media, too?
Response: I do trade mixed media ATCs in other swaos. :)
