About Me

I am married and have one son. I have been an attorney for over 35 years and I maintain my sanity by indulging in multimedia arts. I love to knit, crochet, rubberstamp, make ATC's, bead, read and cook.

In 2006, I started "The Power of Pink Project." Friends, friends of friends, customers at the stamp store where I moonlighted at the time, and many others that I didn't know contributed knitted and crocheted pink scarves that were donated to our local hospital to be given to women who were being treated for breast cancer. We donated over 430 scarves that first year.

2018 is the thirteenth year of the project. We have grown! We have donated over 12,000 scarves to several hospitals and clinics, as well as to individuals who are referred to us. We end the project every year with a party. The party has grown from cookies and punch to a luncheon with a silent auction. We are a "no budget" organization. Everything for the party: food, drink, prizes, are all donated. We play boob bingo, do the survivor shout-out, and give scarves to any current patients who attend.

The only requirements is that the scarf include the color pink and that it be in my hands by the end of the second week of October. PM for the address. I send a little thank you gift to all of the participants. Those who wish are welcome to attend the party. PM me for the info.

I found out firsthand how valuable this showing of support can be. The week that we finished the project the first year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a challenging journey but I knew the support in the community for those who are waging this battle. I had an opportunity to see women who were receiving chemo and radiation treatments wearing their scarves each time that they arrived. I got to be there at the party when the patients who joined us at last year's party looked at me in amazement and said "I can pick which ever one I want?!" I know that there are many generous people in the swap-bot community and I would love to have you join me in making this year's project a success.

I love Disney. I live about 45 minutes from Disneyland and I plan to get an annual pass when I retire this year. My husband and I went to Disney World lin 2017 for our 30th anniversary and we had a blast! My favorite characters are Mickey, Tigger, Winnie the Pooh, BB8 and the other droids from Star Wars, and Grumpy the Dwarf.

I love the beach. It is my happy place. I love mermaids and shells.

Favorite Music

Jazz, 70's funk, salsa, R&B, old Motown, reggae, " pretty much anything that I can dance to. I also like classical music.

Favorite Movies

An Affair to Remember, Godfather I & II, The Wizard of Oz, Mildred Pierce,anything with Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, and Cary Grant...and many more. I love old movies and use NetFlix to have my personal film fests.

Favorite Television

sports (soccer and football) Beat Bobby Flay and other cooking shows Grace & Frankie Say Yes to the Dress (NY and Atlanta) The Crown Father Brown The Voice Call the Midwife The Ranch

Favorite Crafts

knitting, crocheting, rubberstamping, beading, and making ATC's. I also love creating in my planner.

Favorite Colors

Purple, blue, teal, emerald and all jewel tones.

Favorite Books

I read mysteries (My son is named Roderick after Roderick Allyn, the protagonist of Ngaio Marsh who was a contemporary of Dorothy Sayers and Agatha Christie.), biographies, the Harry Potter series, cookbooks, whatever else catches my fancy in the bookstore or on Amazon. I can never get out of a bookstore without buying at least one book!
