About Me

I am a retired schoolteacher and I miss doing the fun arts and crafts with my students. I taught grades 2-6, and spent my last 8 years of teaching by looping, picking up my 4th graders and moving to 5th grade with all of them. I knew it was time to retire when the parents of some of my students were also former students of mine!

I am married to my recently retired husband, pray that we can be around each other 24/7 w/o hurting each other :). I have 2 children, a daughter and son, and 2 grandsons via my daughter.

My free time, of which I have a lot, is spent reading, crafting, traveling, walking around NYC and enjoying theater, both on and off Broadway, or driving out east to the end of Long Island. I run out of some free time around September when I start working on my Christmas ornaments for the year. I am now making up to 75 ornaments a year. I tried stopping this tradition about 5 years ago and everyone complained, so I'm still at it :)

I enjoy classical, smooth jazz, and relaxation music.

I love reading English mysteries, American mysteries, and suspense stories.

Foreign films, horror movies, and black and white movies are favorites.

My crafting favorites are many but I mostly enjoy photography, making cloth dolls and bags, jewelry, quilting, zentangling, making ATC's/notecards/bookmarks, circle journaling, and making journals with blank pages as opposed to lined pages (this way I don't have lines dictating where I place my artwork.)

My favorite colors are lime green, yellow, and earth tones.

I do not like faces or people on items, I lean more to landscapes, beach scenes, nature, and African/ ethnic motifs/scenes.

Comment: Sorry for the delayed response...I've been holding onto this until I completed mine. I love it! I've always wondered what zentangles are & now I have a rad one of my very own! Thank you!! :)
Response: I knew from the tracking info that the package had already been delivered, and I thought you may have gotten busy and didn't have a chance to reply. Zentangles are so easy to do, and so very calming too. Thank you for comments and rating.

Comment: It arrived and I appreciate the note. I have yest to decide how i shall complete my entry. This is my first time working in someone else's book and I am a little nervous.
Response: So happy that the sketchbook arrived. Deciding what to do in your own sketchbook can be hard, but trying to decide what to add to someone else's seems almost impossible. But have no fear, when you are ready to add your own touch your nervousness will disappear and what you add will be wonderful. Thank you for your comments.

Comment: Thanks for the quotes. The music one is very similar to a Picasso quote about art and the dust of everyday life. Great minds think alike? Thnx also for the extra tag.
Response: You are so very welcome. I love the fact that there is more than one way to basically say the same thing. I have been loving these quote prompt mini journal swaps. Thank you for your comments.

Comment: The hand-drawn cards were so cute! Thanks for being so thoughtful.
Response: I'm so happy that you liked the cards. When I was in Sedona, AZ I saw a painting with the birds and liked them so much that I made a sketch of them, they have become a favorite of mine. You are so very welcome for everything and thanks tor the comments.

Comment: This is SO GORGEOUS. I bow was still tied when it got here. I almost didn't want to open it and spoil the beauty. I am Quaker and we have an annual meeting coming up at the end of the month. I will take this journal to the meeting to keep notes, etc. Thanks so much!
Response: You are so very welcome. I am so happy that everything arrived. I was worried that the bow may have come untied and that the extra goodies may have fallen out. I am surprised by the quick arrival of the journals, I received mine today. Thanks for the comments.

Sorry, couldn't resist one more post -- this is one of my favorites -- it is called "prairie smoke" -- so feathery!

rngstgstll on Feb 28, 2013:

... And I really need to get going on those sweater flowers as well, don't I?! Spring, spring, spring, spring .. do you think if I click my heels together, it will come?

Thanks so much for the sunny yellow postcard! We haven't had the same scale of snow, but nonetheless, I am also ready for spring! Here is a flower from the local arboretum. Hopefully, I might see one in a few weeks!
