About Me

Been a long time....................Life really has a way of keeping you busy. I am back on to grant a few wishes if I can and possibly I will be able to create something before much longer.

Here's to a great 2018 for all.

I Live in Charlotte, North Carolina. We are located in what is called the Piedmont region which is between the mountains and beach. Just close enough to each to be wonderful. I live on Lake Wylie which means my neighbors across the way are in South Carolina. Retired and enjoying life.

Favorite Music

Beach Music and a little of everything else. Easy listening and everything Andrew Lloyd Webber. I particularly enjoy the music of the 50's and 60's. Just love that ole time rock n roll. It really does soothe my soul.

Favorite Movies

Just happened this past year that we went to see most of the movies that were up for awards. I loved the Help. War Horse was in my opinion the best of all, The Decendents I also enjoyed. Let's face it Clooney is not hard to look at but in this movie he seemed to show his age. I enjoyed Money Ball even though I don't care for Brad.

Like Chic Flicks and Comedy. Of course, my all time favorites would have to include Gone With the Wind being the good Southern Gal I am, Beaches, Steel Magnolias and To Kill a Mockingbird. Do you see a little Southern flavor here? Don't get to the movies much. That is one thing I thought we would do when we retired but seem to stay too busy doing other things. The year 2011 was unusual - as I said we saw most of those in the running.

Favorite Television

Big Bang Theory...I love Sheldon. Sort of reminds me of someone I know. Whatever happened to Harry's Law??? Still enjoy The Good Wife, have been following the Following.
I usually just record the shows and then can watch at my convenience.

Favorite Crafts

Love Fabric,yarns,beads,buttons,paper and making things out of found objects. Guess I love almost every type of craft. I like neutrals but also brights. Love Colors ....not too much into pastels but can use.

I sew and crochet a little but never did learn to knit. I have enjoyed altering many things. Not into right now but in the past I swapped ATCs, Fat Book pages, Postcards and altered puzzles.

Just got in to Rolo Cards and have been doing more mail art lately.

Wish List

Into fabrics and sewing at the present...making a quilt (hexagons) with brights. Any brights that are more than a couple of inches....

• 100% cotton fabric in all colors and sizes

• Selvedges especially those with numbers or colored dots on them

• embroidery floss

• polka dots and circles

• unusual beads and buttons

• yarns, fibers, ribbons

• Postcards (in an envie please) unless it is a swap I have signed up for.

• Zines

• Hearts

• Zetti

• Hand Carved Stamps

• Handmade cards and envies

Anything my daughter can use in her Class. She teaches Kindergarten at a low income school and they always can use Boxtops for Education, Campbell Soup Labels,

Don't Need or Care for

Don't wear makeup or jewelry very much.

I don't care for scented things. My nose seems to be particulary sensitive. Recently found out I am very allergic to cig smoke.

I am actually easy to please and if you send something I don't care for I will re-gift (except things smelling like smoke)

Don't care for people who never let you know if your package arrived.


I try my best to keep up with all the swaps, tags, etc. but if you are missing something please message me.


Comment: Thank you for the very pretty card, and for sending so many butterflies to Leashah for the Museum!

Tinker60 rated for Mixed media postcards on Apr 3, 2012
Comment: Fantastic mixed media PC. . .and I loved the map area of SD and ND. . . funny (or perhaps odd) thing is that my mother was born in Selby, SD which was on the little map and my grandparents are buried in Mobridge, SD (also on the little map) - odd don't you think?! And the quote may refer to you but it also refers to me : ) Thanks again for the great PC - it's going up on my PC wall in my studio ~~

emrajr69 rated for Atlas or Map Envelopes on Mar 7, 2012
Comment: I think we swapped just recently as well. Thanks for the envelopes. I noticed the stamps you used. Do you travel a lot? This swap was interesting for me. I see you marked your home. I did the same for my swap partner - sent a map of where I was born.
Response: Plan to travel more, in fact just got back from the post office applying for new passport. Who knows. I got this swap and the person used a map with my city on it. These are fun.

My apologies for the late thank you for the February wish you granted to me through the Wishlist group. I had surgery and was recovering. Am home now and catching up on mail.

Thank you so much for the six Korean face masks. These are such a treat because we don't have these locally where I live. I've always wanted to try Korean products because I've heard such good things about them. Now I can...thanks!

I cannot tell you how much your gift means to me as I'm recovering and healing. A little pampering goes a long way for boosting my spirits. Thank you all for your thoughtfulness and generosity!
