About Me

I share my living space with 9 cats, 4 dogs and a husband. Makes for an interesting household at times.

I am a tactile person, love the feel of fabrics, yarns, stones, shells, etc! I love all colors, no favorites really.

Please let me know if I need to resend, I'll gladly do that! Send me a message if you have any concerns at all about a swap where I am your partner.


Favorite Crafts

At the moment, I have a cowl on needles, a shawl on needles, crochet baby sweater started, beads organized and prepared for making a bracelet and am making hanger covers by hook... :D Haven't been doing much else crafty lately. I can knit, crochet, sew, quilt, counted cross-stitch, have made a scrapbook, beaded jewelry, collected a few rubber stamps and toyed with applique, tried tatting and card making. I need a dedicated work room!

Favorite Music

I listen to many forms of music, with classical and golden oldies my most favorite & rap and country being my least favorite.

Favorite Movies

I love old movies, musicals, many Disney and foreign films. Turner Classic Movies is my favorite TV channel.

Favorite Books

I like variety in my selections and will read most anything except westerns and extreme violence. I have been listening to books from the digital public library and LOVE being able to do that.

Collect crafting books and self-help books, plus books from places I've visited or want to visit.

Favorite Flavors

I like milk chocolate, any candy from overseas, caramel, licorice, coffee (black, please no cream or sugar!), all types of teas, almonds, cheese, fruits/jams of all kinds, sweets (sigh, a baine in my life), and I am willing to try new flavors/tastes!

My Collections

Postcards, especially about where you live, tourist-y ones of your area, city views, map cards (but already have plenty of California!). I prefer postcards stamped and sent 'naked', I think that makes them unique.

~please don't cover the description of the card that is usually on the upper left of the back of the card, I like reading those! And, I'm sorry but please don't put any stickers on them, I just don't care for that and I'm not even sure why! :(

  • books, self-help, guide/tour, knitting, sewing, crocheting, crafting, card-making, scrapbooking, etc!

  • teas, coffees

  • material, yarn

  • beads all sizes (not plastic)

  • vintage pinup girls (love Elvgren)

  • sun/moon/stars

  • snow (because I miss it), snowflakes

Pet Peeves

Writing I can't decipher. (even though I have really bad writing-I try to keep it as readable as possible!)

Postcard descriptions covered.

Angry drivers.

Cashiers who talk on the phone when waiting on me. (grrr... this one really irks me)

Swap-botters who do not rate: Finally decided to revisit these and guess what?! everyone of them were no longer in the swap-bot system!

Swappers who do not send!: (10/16/2010) 2010 Postcard swap #10 - October - craftingmom

I so want to add another group of Swappers on this list, but since I do not walk in other's shoes, I can't really blather on about their nastiness. Sigh.. instead I will take a deep breath and thank my God for my blessings.

Comment: Thanks for the postcard!
Response: Thank you for the heart! :D
Comment: The card you sent is HANDATED 25 Oct 2011 before the deadline and then officially US Post marked Phoenix on 2 November 2011 (which I have scanned) which means you did not post it until WAY AFTER THE DEADLINE.The 5 rating I give you is bordline 3 as far as I am concerned.
Response: I am sorry you are so disappointed by what you assume is my delinquency. I assure you that once I put the item into the post box, it is no longer in my control. However, you have brought to my attention a potential problem with the particular place I have been dropping my mail into for posting and I will certainly be more careful from now on. Thank you for so kindly alerting me of this discrepancy.
Comment: Thank you so much for the fantastic postcard with the Joshua Tree and the sunset(or sunrise). I really like the colors on the card and the silhouette of the tree is sooo beautiful , thank you again !!!
Response: You are so welcome and thank you for the heart!

Comment: Hello, yes, it's dropped from 85 to 30F in the space of a couple of weeks it seems, snow is forecast for morning. Gotta love Minnesota. Cheers

I LOVE Piers Anthony! I love the Xanth series (I so wish Xanth was a real place) and I love the Incarnations of Immortality series. So great to find another Anthony lover!

Hi Jacani,

Thanks so much for the postcard you sent for the Naked Postcards WTA tag! I appreciate your thinking of me with the butterfly. It's hilarious that your dog's name is Mimi too. I always get "cat" or "grandmother" so this is a nice change.

Jazza on Jul 1, 2009:
