About Me

My name is Mindy. I'm 49 I've lived in New Hampshire all of my life. I've been with my boyfriend, Packy, for 15 years. I have 4 beautiful daughters that mean everything to me. My oldest is Kaila 31, Marissa 27, Shania 22 and Ciera 20. I love it when we can all get together which isn't as often as it used to be. I really enjoy doing lots of different crafts. I'm always looking for something new to create. However, my favs will always be paper crafts and crocheting. I Love to make paper embellishments and I'm always up for a private swap. I owned a child care center for 10 years. I sold it to a Charter School. Now I am a Service Coordinator/Supervisor. I set up elderly with services that will help keep them in their homes as long as possible and supervise over 20 Direct Support Providers I love my job. I also eat a whole food/plant based diet.


*I LOVE DIE CUTS!!!! I like to use them on ATCโ€™s, envelopes, etc. Feel free to send me some!

*Swapping Happy Mail

*hummingbirds (all birds)

*Dunkin Donuts coffee. I should just have an IV put directly into my vein considering how much I drink!

*Christmas anything. I totally have OCD=Obsessive Christmas Disorder!

*Anything PINK, iridescent or sparkley. How can one not smile when they see something pink and sparkly?

*Flea market finds. I have a huge Christmas Village display and I got most of the pieces at flea markets.

*Plastic canvas. I bought a huge bin full of plastic canvas sheets and books at a flea market about 7 years ago and I've been hooked ever since. I like to do it when I watch tv cuz it keeps my hands busy. I especially like to make PC Christmas ornaments!

*Crochet. My Grandmother taught me when I was 8 years old. I especially like to make afghans, pillows and Christmas stockings.

*Colorful fabric. I like to make colorful block quilts and pillow cases. I'm still fairly new to sewing. I would love to learn how to make tote bags and purses but my attempts have been less than successful so far.

*DIY projects. I'm a crafty queen at heart.

*Interior decorating, especially at Christmas. I LOVE decorating for Christmas. That's why I start in November and keep it up til January. I decorate for all of the holidays.

*Pinterest. I can get lost on Pinterest for hours. It just sucks me in and before I know it, I've lost 2 hours of my life!

*Did I mention that I LOVE DIE CUTS!!!! Again, feel free to send me some.

Favorite Television

I like to binge watch series on NETFLIX and HULU

Favorite Books

*Amish books. I find it interesting how they live and their sense of community.

*Mythical books. Great when I want to escape the real world.

*Chicken soup for the soul books. I have 6 Christmas versions I like to reread.

Obviously, I read a variety of different books.

I'm the kind of person that can picture the story in my mind while I'm reading it as if I'm watching it on a movie screen. Sometimes I'm so involved in the book that when I take a break, it takes me a few minutes to adjust to reality, lol.

I have to take breaks from reading sometimes because it can suck up so much of my life!

I also enjoy listening to audio books in my car because sometimes I travel far for my job.

Favorite Movies

*A Christmas Story

*Jim Carrey version of The Grinch

*All the Hallmark Christmas movies

*Harry Potter movies, I'm such a dork

*Anything with Robert DeNiro



*smoking. I hate it when the scent gets into my clothes. Yuck!

*rude people. I don't understand why some people have to use a pissed off tone when they speak to someone. You get a lot more when youโ€™re kind towards others.

*onions. I wish I liked them because so many people use them when they cook. I gag when I eat them.

*Mushrooms. I gag when I eat these too. My Mom loves them.

*extremely late raters. I can't stand it when 2 weeks go by after I send something and they still haven't rated me. It leaves me wondering if they ever got it or if it got lost.

*no more stickers! Especially the tiny ones. Unless they are Christmas stickers.

*I don't care for religious Christmas cards

I teared up near the end of that father/daughter story. That something wonderful could happen after the tragedy was remarkable. I was also struck by the fact the family hired not one but two different lawyers to check him out! Glad you enjoyed the article.

Hi Mindy! You are one of my partners for a Christmas card swap, and I really enjoyed reading your profile! I am also a HUGE Christmas lover. I start decorating in November too and it's up until at least the 2nd or 3rd week of January. I hope to swap with you again sometime :)
