Hi I'm Laurie. I'm a GRIT! ( girl raised in the South). I'm a 42 y/o wife and mother. My only son is 17 years old. My husband and I have been together 25 years. we have two dogs. I am retired from 20 years of nursing, but not by choice. I am unable to work because of degenerative bone disease. I lost my Grandmother back in September. In my life I have worked as a hairdresser, medical transcriptionist, licensed practical nurse and registered nurse. I grew up around people who sew. My mother worked as a factory seamstress making jeans and retired as a construction seamstress for the Air Force base. My Grandfather owned a car upholstery business for nearly 50 years! I never grew a love for sewing until 2004. I bought my first sewing machine in 2007. I still have the sewing machine my Mama gave me that I learned to sew with. I love my friends and family. I love giving. I enjoy meeting new people. I have been playing piano for 4 months. My secret fantasy has always been to be an Oscar winning actress ;-)

I love Eagles, roosters, owls, lighthouses. candles. I'm a big refrigerator magnet collector!

I love most all music, especially 80s tunes, country and pop. I don't listen to rap. I love the original Journey, Lady Gaga, Adele, Miranda Lambert, and James Durbin......to name a few for you :-D

I never met a book I did not Ike. My last two books were The Help (paperback) and an All People Quilt Hardcover quilting book. I collect and love cookbooks too.

Cold Mountain is my all-time favorite movie! Lonesome Dove, Urban Cowboy, Coal Miners Daughter, Sweet Dreams, Titanic, Scarface.....

I don't watch a lot of television, but when I do here are my favs: the voice, American idol, the first 48, Judge Judy, Friends, Reba, HSN, Pawn Stars, Storage Wars.....

I love blogs and sewing tutorials. I love to cook and bake, but I like EASY yet delicious recipes. I'm have my own YouTube channel and recently started adding cooking tutorials. I will be adding sewing videos as well. I'd like to teach people how to sew!

Favorite crafts: sewing, quilting, crafts, crochet. ***** I am NOT Into card making (except fabric postcards!)...or scrap booking.

I would LOVE TO LEARN how to make SOAP.

Hi Laurie! Welcome to Swap-Bot! So glad you're here! You are sooo going to LOVE it here! There are so many fun swaps, and this is such an amazing community of fun, talented, and creative people!

Welcome also to the 'I ♥heart♥ Mail Art - April' swap --- thank you for joining my swap! If you have any questions, please feel free to holler! Hope to 'meet you in the mail' often! :)

p.s. it is always a good idea to fill out your profile with as much information & detail as possible. All your likes, favourite colours, crafts, hobbies, wishlists, etc. The more specific info you have, the happier your mailbox will be! It makes it much easier for your swap partner to create/choose items that you suit you perfectly if you have a well filled-out profile. You will notice on most of the swaps that one of the main requirements is to have a well-filled out profile --- that is the case with this swap as well.

The more detail in your profile, the better the swaps will be for you and your partner!

You have a great start on it!

Happy Swapping! :)
