Update December 2019 At the present time I am hoping to move in a month or so. I will be moving 80 miles north to a suburb of St. Louis. This will put me close to my sons and their families.
I am cutting down on my swaps until I get settled in my new home.
I am retired and became a widow in 2014 after 51 years of marriage.I have a large support group of family and church friends around me. My 2 sons & their families live in the St. Louis area so I see them several times a month. I have a daughter in the Chicago area, of course I do not see her as often.
I live in a rural area of Missouri with two, now only one, beagles. A few years ago one of my dogs got out of my son's yard so Rosie and I are alone now. It is just as well as it was difficult to handle both of them at once.
I have been on swap-bot for quite a few years now. It has added so much to my life. I have learned so many new techniques as I made my swaps. I feel like my creativity has really grown. My favorite swaps are the scavenger hunt PC's and collaboration PC's. I usually try to make something a little off center for these swaps.
I am still trying to hone my photography skills but use my phone a lot more than my camera. It's just so much easier. I use my photos in some of my swaps.
I am always buying vintage books and magazines as sources for images to use in my swaps. It will be hard to part with any of them when I move, so I will probably keep them all.
I enjoy swapping with other Christian women. I hope to do some Bible journaling in the future. I will join at least one new Bible study group after I move.
And a new quilt club. I have enjoyed meeting so many friendly women over the years in the three quilt clubs I have been in at different times.
Likes: Vintage images, images from nature, illustrations from children's books, interesting photos taken by you, butterflies.
Quirky/humorous interpretations of themes in swaps from you. Seeing your art work.
Unusual book pages & ephemera to use in making swaps.
Dislikes: Nothing specific here.
Reading and TV: I read mostly historical fiction and mysteries. I am still enjoying the Maisie Dobbs series of books. Most of my favorite TV shows are British or Australian. I have Netflix and Amazon Prime. I would appreciate recommendations of series to binge watch. No fantasy or futuristic please.
My daughter and I share a love of hunting for bargains in thrift shops. She does some buying and selling online. I look forward to furnishing a "new" house, probably one built in the 60"s or 70's.
