****Hi to all who care...I have been totally depressed since the middle of May. I really don't want to go into all of it but, I am alive. I feel horrible about the swaps that I owe. I promise I will get them sent. I've just really had a bad, bad time of things, you know, anything that has to do with living. I promise I will get them all caught up very soon. I am so very sorry about this, this is the worst my depression has been in many years, I am so sorry.*****
:::I am so sorry, but my laptop crashed. I bought a new laptop so I'm on over-load with all the different how-to's. Please, please work with me on my swaps. Some are running late but I will get trhem all out by Tuesday.: :Okay, not that I should have to explain this, but I have many major disabilities. I have an enlarged heart, high blood pressure, Chrone's disease, IBS, progressive rheumatoid arthritis, Fibromyalgia, congestive heart failure, and diabetes; these are the ones we are trying to control with medication. Now on to the really difficult ones: PTSD there's much, much more to this that I will not post.. I have Chronic re-occurring depression, panic attacks, anxiety, agoraphobia. So some times, sometimes I simply have things that get in the way of time, such is I can't remember what time I need to pick up our grandson from Pre-K so my husband and sister have to call me. Or I'll be going down the road and completely forget where I am going and have to pull over. Most often I just head back home. I have missed doctors appointmentsts for myself and for our grandson. So going to post office can become quite an ordeal for me. I can't go anywhere by myself.I truly believe that the people I swap with the most often.... I don't know, you all feel like friends, I also have dependent personality disorder. *** So with all that said sometimes I do miss the end date for swaps. My husband, God bless him, does his best to take my mail to the post office for me.***
My Vision Statement includes Faith, truth, honesty, love, caring, and compassion. For it is without my faith that I stumble and fall. Truth from within myself to myself. Honesty with all I come in contact with, whether in person or on-line (Swap bot). Love makes our lives continue. A caring person is always available to help others. Compassion allows me to grow and learn, follow and teach.
My Mission Statement: I do not lie, cheat, or steal and will not tolerate is around me or the people I love. I am often weak minded toward myself (major depression) but I strive to improve myself upon reaching any stumbling block. Making a difference for this, my life and the lives of others. To stand strong and endure what life throws my way by trusting in my Lord, listening to him and doing the very best I can to follow the direction that he gives me.
I fear failure. I don't judge people of other faiths or beliefs but would prefer not to receive witchcraft, tarot cards, Wicca, etc. as I will not keep it in my home. My God is a mighty God and Jesus is my Savior.
Any Beverly Lewis,
Family orientated story lines. Nora Lewis, and John Grishom.
I DO NOT like harlequin romance or anything on that line. Some favorite magazines are "The Good Old Days", Reminisce", "Mother Earth News" and "Taste of Home". I don't remember the last time I bought a magazine.
I enjoy gospel music, country style (traditional or modern) instrumental. Some artist that I particularly enjoy are Yanni, Bucky Covington, Chris Daughtry, and Eric Church - he's from the town next to where I live. Some of my favorite songs are "Arms of an Angel", my daughter had it played at my son's funeral. "Go Rest High on the Mountain", "Time in a Bottle" and "How would I live Without You".
My all time favorite movie is "It's a Wonderful Life" black and white version, Driving Miss Daisy and the Color Purple. Again I like family style movie, Hallmark Type. I enjoyed "Game Time"with The Rock, RVing" with Robin Williams. Robin Williams is also my favorite comedian along with Whoopi Goldberg.
The Walton's and Little House are still favorites. I watch HGTV, DIY, and Food Network. I enjoy Survivor, Hell's Kitchen,
My favorite craft is sewing which I have been doing since I was 9 years old. I LOVE buttons, old, new, unusual I love 'em all. Scrap booking, and cooking, I have a massive collection of cook books. I enjoy recycling items.
I DO NOT LIKE OWLS...they creep me out. And I am afraid of worms/caterpillars !
I had 2 children, a boy named James and a daughter named Mary. They ARE my life, my soul, my being. I lost my son 6 years ago on June 5th. He committed suicide, and part of me just isn't anymore.There's a whole in my heart and I don't believe it will ever heal. I joined this Swap-bot so I could be involved with something that is JUST for and by me. When I make or create something I put my whole heart into it. If anyone is ever disappointed then please let me know so that I can make it right. I have Crone's Disease, Chronic Re-occurring Depression diagnosis change( now Clinically Depressed), IBS and Arthritis, Fibromyalgia and so on and on and on.
I am a simple, earthy person, I don't lie, cheat or steal and don't tolerate it around me.
I now have 10 grandchildren; 4 boys and 6 girls. The youngest boy, we have custody of. what a joy to have so many grandbabies!!!
I collect Winnie the Pooh, I like smaller items (I can collect more that way), I also collect John Deere and Campbell's Soup stuff. Miniature items for a Shadow box. Puzzles with 25 or less peices for a boy or of nature. I like all colors but don't like navy/ beige combo. I love children and often donate items to the Pre-K class, so quick, simple: items, suggestions, how-to's, etc. will be put to good use.
My wish list starts with:
10" x 10" fabric squares, please no skulls or such. I'd like plain colors or pretty prints. ( I am going to make a Swap-bot quilt at the end of 2012) That idea didn't work out, only got squares from 2 people. I am going to continue to collect them and make a quilt when I have enough.
I am in need of spools of thread.
Card making supplies; blank cards and envelopes. This will be my next adventure in crafts.
Teddy Bears, to be used on ATC's and cards.
Stickers of: fire, firemen, fire trucks, emergency vehicles, police, etc ($1.00 Stickers) These will be for my grandson, Ethyn who is totally obsessed with them.
Vintage or vintage looking people.
Unusual decks of cards.
Anything UNC (husbands obsession).
