About Me

Updated 10/8/2021 Hello! I have taken a break from swap bot for awhile. I’m back and just doing a few swaps at a time. Am so ready to make some new friends and do quality swaps.

I am the mother of 3 wonderful sons. I am so blessed to have the boys in my life. I also have a bonus son and a bonus daughter.

I have enjoyed making rag top lap size quilts for my family members. But haven't done that in a very long time. So I do have plans to go buy material and get one finished by September.

I am 54 years old and still like girly items like Kawaii and such. Any cute characters is a plus. I love dragonfly's, butterfly's, hearts, stationery, notecards, postcards, and small odd and ends. Send me a recipe or a joke that always is fun to see in a envelope!

As a family we like to go to car races (my brother Thomas and my son Blake race) Which causes this moma to have nightmares! On weekends everyone likes to go to the river and ride the four wheelers.

My most favorite thing to do is sit at home with my sweetie and watch tv and just hang out together. I usually write my pen pals or work in a journal during this time. Lately I've enjoyed working puzzles such as cross words and Sudoku.

Favorite Crafts

Making homemade envelopes, I have found that I enjoy sending and recieving these envies.

Making small quilts for gifts.

Journaling ( I like to write but can't draw anything)

Simple crafts (would love for you to share some ideals on fast and easy crafts)

I like the fast and easy crafts so I can see the results super fast!!

Favorite Books

One of my favorite authors is Debbie Macomber.

Romance books! (except I don't really like the historical romance)

Favorite Television

Sister Wives


WWE wrestling

I  dvr most of my shows and watch them when Luther is gone.

Favorite Music

I am so sorry! I updated my profile

Hi! Your blog is really nice! You seem to be very creative and crafty and take up many journalling projects through Swap bot. I especially like the 4 Things lists. I guess writing them down on the blog makes one more accountable to get things done. Keep on blogging!
