About Me

3 June, 2019 -- My husband and I moved into a life care facility. A life care facility is where you move in at one level of care and as your health needs change, you move into the next level of care. (Example - independent living to assisted living, assisted living to rehab or memory or complete care). It took us over 3 months to get our stuff packed up and moved. It is a very nice place and we both like it here. My husband did have a difficult time giving up his tools and his garage and the car he was restoring. Now that we are somewhat settled, I am anxious to get back into the swapping & crafting mode. i miss HAPPY MAIL. Since all utilities are covered in our monthly fee, I won't be getting ANY MAIL ....NO BILLS!! I NEED HAPPY MAIL !!!

18 March 2018 -- I am writing to let everyone know that due to some unexpected issues that have arisen, I am going to be taking an break from swapping.Once the issues are resolved, then I hope to be returning. If I have signed up to be your partner and you have not received the swap from me, please let me know so I can follow up and get it to you. Thank you for being patient and 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. I would like postcards.

If you don't receive a swap from me, please contact me before you rate me. I am more then happy to resend. Also if I don't receive a swap, I will contact you before rating you.

Comment: Donna, I hate to do this, but I am going to have to give you a 3 rating - :-( I wish you had contacted me about this being late. I don't normally mind a day or two late, but this was mailed 9 days late! I do not have any messages from you regarding this being late. The last message I have from you is dated June.. Also, for future reference when you make a rolo... if you do not know the hole placement, I prefer that you do not put any holes in the card. The rolo in the picture is actually a Memory dex card. Much smaller dimensions (4x4 I think, I don't use them) than the Large Rolo :-( The correct ones will have to be put in now so I can store it with my rolos, and more of the precious design will be missing (so sad). It's such a beautiful Rolo.. I hate losing more of the design :-( Unfortunately, due to your recent ratings... I am going to have take you off the Artisan ATC group as well. Groups are supposed to be safe places, where you will not be flaked on. It would be unfair to leave you in the group knowing that you have flaked on several swaps. Please bring your rating up again, and I would be happy to reinstate you as a group member. I have enjoyed swapping with you. Sincerely, Leslie Carter
Response: I am so very sorry that I did not contact you to let you know it was going to be late. Thank you for the information on holes for the rolos. I am glad that you liked the design on it.
