About Me

15 October 2018 -- Tomorrow, my husband is having a monitor put into his pulmonary artery (artery from the heart to the lung). It will monitor the pressures inside his heart and inside his lungs. It will help control and treat his congestive heart failure. Say a prayer for us.

9 September 2018 -- I want to thank everyone who has been so very understanding under my being ill and being late is sending my ATC. I am now all catch up and everything should be back on schedule. Thank you again.

23 August 2018 -- I wanted to let everyone know that I am not flaking on the ATCs that I have signed up for. I have been ill with for over a week and had to have some surgery done on Monday (8//20/18). I am starting to feel better and and will be working on getting my ATCs out in the next few days.. If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you for understanding

I have been married to a wonderful man for 24 years. We do not have any children together, but I am the step-mom to 3 daughters & 1 son. We have 8 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Our children and grandchildren are spread thru out the US, so we don't get to see them as often as we would like.

After 40 years, I retired from nursing. Working in the medical field was the only work I had ever done. My body was ready to retire from nursing but my heart & soul was not. Body won out.

In May of 2017, I lost my Shih Tzu. Buddy had been a part of my life for 10 years. It was a difficult decision regarding getting another dog. But after much thought, adopted a 2 year old female Shih Tzu named Independence. Indy is blind; she lost her vision about 2 weeks before adopted her from a rescue.

I love the beach and water. I so enjoyed listening to the waves hit the shore and find it so relaxing. I am not a real "lover of the sun", except when on the boat. I prefer cruising on a plantoon then being in a speed boat.

MY LIKES: COLORS--1) all shades of blues, aqua, teal 2) combination of yellow, gray, black 3) then most color combos FOOD--- cheese pizza with or without french
fries;watermelon; "Blooming Onion"
from Outback; green salads; cement mixer from Culver's, dark chocolate. MUSIC --- 60's, 70's, 80's, Disco, and some country (Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Reba, Kenny Rogers, Don Williams, Randy Travis). I like to dance. READING --- I preferences in authors changing from time to time. I am reading James Patterson (but not Alex Cross), Janet Evanovich (her characters make me laugh), Sara Petrosky (who's character is from Chicago).

DISLIKES --- spiders & snakes; the dentist; liver & onions; heights; talking about religion or politics.

ME ......CRAFTY--- Started scrapbooking in 60's when the books were black and the pictures were black and white. In the 70's decorated my calendars (aka planners) which I still do. I use 3 calendars at a time....one at home, one at my desk and one in my purse. I begin tole
painting in the 80's. In 2000, I began card making. 2016 I tried mixed media and a more formal style of art journaling. In 2017, I started doing ATCs. I also knit and crochet but I prefer paper crafting and painting. I guess I'm what you call a "gypsy" crafter...I don't have a speciality because I like to do different crafts at different times.

My wish list: I would like used postage stamps.

Comment: 10/03/2018-Ty ever so much for such a spooky halloween pocketletter. I wish I could be as creative when putting together pocketletters. However, It did get a bit dis shoveled in the envelope. Sometimes that would happen to me. Then someone told me to wrap them when sending them a large envie so nothing falls out of the pockets and it worked. I love you creativity and how you decorated both sides...awesome!! I want to say that I have done a few pocketletter swaps and yours is the first one that I have gotten decorated on both sides...what a treat. Thank you. Happy swapping.
Response: You are very welcome.Glad you like it. Sorry that things got dis-sholved. I will try your recommendation with the next one. Keep swapping and be happy.

Comment: Thank you for the great envie of blue stuff. I'm in a couple of blue swaps, so after some clicking through them, I figured out which swap this was for (there wasn't a note in the envelope to indicate which one this was for). ;) No worries. :)
Response: Glad you liked the blue envelope. Sorry I didn't put a note. Guess I was in a hurry to get it out to you.

Comment: Hello Donnamarie, Thank you for your letter. I enjoyed reading it. I wished you had contacted and let me know your letter would be late. The swap host messaged me after the send date to let me know you hadn't sent. I'm sorry I have to rate you fairly with a 3. I know life gets in the way but try to contact your swap partners if something prevents you from sending by swap send by date.
Response: I am glad you received it.I am sorry. I thought I had emailed you regarding it. I was too ill to do much of anything for awhile.
