Hi my name is Lee Ann & I am from a small community in Missouri named Cedar HIll, outside of St. Louis. I love to try all kinds of crafting, I use to only do cross stitch then I found out what all is out there & I am hooked. I love scrap-booking & I am learning to sew a little here & there. I moved from a house to an apartment recently so I am finding some new organizational strategies - if you have some to share I am all ears.
On the personal level I was raised in Missouri & lived in Colorado for a time as a child. I left MO after high school to join the Air Force. While in the Air Force I got to visit Mississippi, California, & a few other places. I got married then I got divorced & have since visited or lived in other places such as New Mexico, Texas, New Orleans, Florida & Oklahoma. My favorite, at least so far in the US is New Mexico. I love the culture & the customs & being so close to all that it offers. I moved back to Missouri in 2006 to be closer to family. I have a Chihuahua named Sydney, she gets in your face once she is used to you & has to be a part of everything.
I am always looking for new ideas & would love to have some email pin pals, both in the US & outside. I love history & hearing the stories about where you live & other things. I have been to the Southwest & West coast of the USA but never to the east coast or overseas & would love to see some pictures & swap ideas.
Some of my favorite colors are dark green, dark red, terra cotta, jewel & earth tones mainly. I like to receive anything scapbook, would love to try stain glass & would like some stain glass patterns, any type of craft books or magazines - except knitting / crochet - I have done crochet & while it looks great its just not something that I really like to do. I am learning to make quilt block so am looking for quilt patterns. I love to take patterns from other items & use them for something other than what they were designed for. In cross stitch I usually take a piece from one pattern & mix it with other pieces to come up with a whole picture. I like making Christmas ornaments out of unusual stuff - I recently found some made out of the seams from old blue jeans. There is just so much out there that I want to try I get overwhelmed.
My dream vacation would be to go to Ireland, so if there is anyone from Ireland that would like to be pin pals that would be great.
I recently got into the PC swaps & am loving it. I really enjoy getting snail mail of any kind. I am open to any kind of postcard but really prefer ones that shows something about where you live, a tourist site or historica item. I am very curiuos about other countries, how they live, what its like at different times of the year, etc. Not much into the animal PC. Show me something special about your country or state & I am happy. An update to the PC collecting, I still love anything that you send but would like to start getting the state & country postcards, right now I have:
Australia North Carolina
so if this is something that is readily available would love to get them all, I will update this as I receive new ones.
I like coffee of any kind but am not as much a tea person. I don't like coconut, anchovies, onions.
Hope this gives everyone a fairly good look at who I am, if you end up being my partner in a swap & have any questions please feel free to send me a message.
Everyone have a great day & feel free to drop me a line.
Happy crafting & swapping.
