About Me

Hi..I live in Las Vegas..great city if you stay off the strip!! LOL! I've been married for 37 yrs in Dec/2015. I have 2 children and 6 grandchildren, ranging in age from 6 mos to 19 yrs old. I love my family, scrapbooking, reading, gardening, the internet, cooking and my job...in that order. I am a Business Services Administrator for a landscape supply company...(fancy name my boss calls me to say I am in charge of everything).

Favorite Music

I love all types of music, mostly rock from 60's to present day, alot of country lately..love Little Big Town and Band Perry, classical and Christmas..any version of Carol of the Bells is awesome! My son burned me a cd with over 20 different versions on it. I've seen Trans-Siberian Orchestra 3 times now and they are beyond awesome!! Had to travel to Phoenix last year as they didn't bring their show to Las Vegas...SO worth it!!

Favorite Books

I love to read! I read cookbooks for fun, scrapbook magazines. Don't really have a favorite author..but I enjoy romance, mystery and comedy books. I even still read childrens books...think Nancy Drew and Boxcar Children when the mood hits me! I have a Kindle but still prefer a real paper book over the digital and I really can't get into books on CD having someone read to me!!

Favorite Movies

I like happy movies...Very favorite is Wizard of Oz Arnaz...(a relatively unknown but VERY cute movie if you Love Lucy!!) I can watch Disney classic cartoons over and over even though the kids have outgrown them now....thank goodness there's that new grandbaby coming...the family can quit groaning when they have to see me watching Cinderella for the 50th time....now I'll have a legitimate reason!!

Favorite Television

Food Network, Pawn Stars, Raising Hope, Say Yes to the Dress, Everybody Loves Raymond, King of Queens...mostly Food Network though!

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy scrapbooking, altered art, ATC, trying new recipes (thanx to Pinterest!),,,Speaking of Pinterest..can that be considered a craft??..I have some awesome boards that I love to look at when I need a happy boost!! I could..and sometimes do spend hours pinning!! I love playing with the Prima Doll stamps and have recently discovered Pocket Letters...what a simple, fun concept...can't believe no one came up with that sooner!!! I made an altered puzzle for a swap here and that was a blast..want to do another one for myself soon!!


pigs..they are just too cute!!.. and scrapbooking supplies..of all kinds! My husband swears I could open my own store at this point...he's probably right!! I also have found a new interest in dress forms since he came across two metal sculptured ones that are awesome!!


Things I like to receive:

paper scraps (especially mulberry paper...love to tear this for ATC's)


sparkly things

peacock related items

mystical things

vintage valentine, christmas, halloween, easter, victorian ephemera

fibers of all kinds

ribbons of all kinds

recipes that you enjoy

any kind of fairy items

unicorn/pegasus items


Prima flowers (especially altered by you!)

roses..or any kind of flower items

purple is my favorite color

celestial items

vintage hankies or doilies


buffaloes ( I know this is weird, but they're pretty awesome!!)

sticky note pads or page flags (I go thru these like crazy..both at work and home!!)

random playing cards

handmade tags/embellishments for scrapbooking

Punch Studio Note Cards (just recently discovered these & OMG..they are beautiful!!)

Postcards..written on and naked

Pens...especially purple ones

cigar boxes

clear stamps and ink pads

bits and pieces of unwanted jewelry (someday I want enough to make one of those really cool Christmas Trees out of all of it!!)


I started this category and then realized I don't really have dislikes except for pine and eucalyptus scented stuff!! Everything else you can find a use for!!

Thrift Stores
