About Me

Hi I am a retired teacher. I like to read, collect and send snail mail and spend time with my family. I also like to travel.

I like to scrapbook and work on mixed media projects. I also like to collect and send postcards. I like to try new craft ideas.

About Me

Some ABCs about me are: Angels, Arizona; Broncos, (children's) books; (NO) cats (please), Christmas; (electric) distressor, donuts; Glasses (you wear), Grandma; Heat (110 is great!!); Karen, Kindle; Mountain Dew, Mom; (writing) Notes; ocean; postcards; quiet; retired; Snow globes, snail mail, stamps' travel, tea ;toulle, unique; Virginia; Washington, DC; Yakima. (More to come soon)

Favorite Music

I like most kinds of music, but especially country. I really like George Strait! I went to his concert twice; once we got to sit in the front row! Very awesome! I also like Barry Manilow, Barry White, Lionel Ritchie. I remember watching American Bandstand and Soul Train when I was younger.

Favorite Books

I really like to read. I especially like biographies and historical fiction. I like to read how famous people dealt with everyday problems and about looking at the world from a different point of view. I like to read children's books, too. When I see someone with an interesting looking book, I will ask them about it and if they would recommend it. I have gotten to read a lot of different books this way.

Favorite Crafts

I have been scrapbooking for a long time. I also like other kinds of paper crafts like ATCs, pocket letters and Memory Dex Cards. I like to learn new techniques and try different ideas. I also like Smash books and other small journals to keep random "stuff". I also belong to Postcrossing and have sent and received a lot of different post cards. I LOVE visiting the post office in different places and I love sending and receiving snail mail!

Comment: Thank you for the card. LOL !! It's cute but right now we don't have snow but ice. It rained last night. Actually quite a bit and then it turned cold and today every twig, sidewalks and my car are totally ice covered. I'd rather have snow. Thanks again.
Response: Yes snow is better than ice. My college in Kansas was closed for the fifth day this winter due to weather don’t remember that. Yuck thanks for the ❤️

The craft/scrapbook shops that I know of (heard of) are in the west valley also. I heard one does classes. I am on the other side of the valley! lol Do you take any crafting classes? I know Michaels and Hobby Lobby sometimes have them in my area. Would you maybe want to take a class together one Saturday and meet half way in a Michaels or Hobby Lobby in the middle? lol I am hoping to get to my PO Box tomorrow morning.. can't wait. I have to go get ready for work.. I work the late shift..
