About Me

I dabble in a variety of crafts - not sure if I am good at any of them but I do have fun! I have been a scrapbooker for YEARS, I taught myself how to crochet and mainly do dishcloths and silly things for my dogs, I like making Christmas ornaments out of clay, I like to make art out of non-conventional items like making faux wrought iron sculptures out of toilet paper rolls and using pizza boxes as canvases. My latest obsession I was introduced to by a good friend is art journaling!

Favorite Music

I honestly love all genres of music - my boyfriend is very proud of his Scottish heritage and has introduced me to bagpipe music and it's pretty awesome!

But my favorite genre of music is anything "bluesy" - if that is even a real word! I love listening to the real old stuff like Robert Johnson and Son House, then onto the 1950's with Muddy Water, Howlin Wolf etc... onto more recent stuff - Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Cray and finally today all the alternative artists singing the blues - Delta Rae and my obsession right now - ZZ Ward!

Favorite Books

I have been so busy the past 5 years going back to college and building a business that I no longer have time for pleasure reading. I could have been considered a real book worm because I carried a book around with me everywhere and read at any chance I could get. My favorite genres were historical fiction and biographies. What I'm striving for now is to re-read all the Harry Potter books. I've seen all the movies probably 15 times each so want to re-read the books to remember everything that was not in the movies!

Favorite Television

I don't have cable anymore - just a streaming player with a few paid channels and mainly free channels. I like to start a series and watch it from start to finish. I also tend to be in the middle of several series! I've become a PBS junkie - Downton Abbey (can't believe it's over) Polkark, Home Fires, etc... historical fiction I guess you could call it

Likes and Dislikes

My favorite color is green. Fall is my favorite season. New Years Eve/Day and Valentines Day are my favorite "holidays". I love tea, whether loose leaf or tea bags. I love all flavors as well, I haven't come across a flavor yet that I didn't like

Since I'm so new to this, I honestly can!t think of anything that I would dislike enough right now to list.

Good Themes for me: cows (yes cows), dogs, cats (we just got a kitten born end of July 2016, we named him Thackery Binx from Hocus Pocus) flamingos, koala bears, sunflowers, trees, mountains (anything nature based really)


I am exploring my spirituality and lean toward Wicca/Paganism/earth-based "religions" and would love anything based around those concepts!

dictionary rated for Handmade Evelopes ~ USA on Oct 24, 2017
Comment: Sorry, but I have to rate you a 3. You marked sent on 10/7, but then didn't send until 10/10. A lot of people caught the flu this year, but marking sent before mailing a swap isn't right. You also didn't communicate ahead of time - waiting for me to notice. Hope you feel better.
Response: I had every intention of getting to the post office that Saturday morning so did mark "sent". I unfortunately did not due to illness. The post office was closed the next two days (Sunday & Holiday) so it was mailed out on Tuesday. Yes, I should have sent an email but I dropped the ball - first time in the 2 1/2 years I've been on swapbot. I hope you did at least like the swap - I was so concerned about how "even" the envelopes came out that I did a little extra than what was required by making notecards and putting solid colored little "address labels" on the front of the envelopes for easier addressing instead of having to write directly on the patterned paper.

APDG ~ Whimsical Cow Swap

Hope you find my choices moving you to rate

Hello -- This is for the ADPG Summer Solstice swap. I posted these last week but somehow my computer froze and they did not show up on your profile and one other.

Not sure why the summer solstice images did not work before.
Please accept my sincere apologies for these being late.

I love this time of year and these images are ones that give meaning to the Solstice to me.

I will be checking to make absolutely sure that they do post to your profile.

Hugs and Summer Blessings, Kay
