About Me

I always try to send swaps early but have had the misfortune of something getting lost in the mail. I want to be a dependable partner and welcome a message if something hasn't arrived when you think it should. I promise to resend as soon as possible.

I'm a retired RN with 5 children, 8 grandchildren and one great grandson who is growing up fast. I enjoy family get togethers, working on projects with friends and creating things.I read a lot but watch little TV.

Read mostly mysteries and some fav authors are James Patterson, John Sandford, Navada Barr and Earlene Fowler.

Favorite music is Classical, Christian and Country.

Favorite artwork is Vintage, Asian, Steampunk, Nature, Things with lots of color and just Black and white. Also enjoy embellishments and some glitter.

Dislike Occult,Nudes, Too cute, politics and very hot weather.

Favorite Crafts

I joined Swapbot for ATCs, inchies amd zentangles. In Delaware there isn't much interest in trading these things. I still love zentangle but my interest in paper crafts has really grown. I'm now making altered tags, zines, Postcards and other mail art. At my house most large cereal boxes turn into mixed media master boards and I have discovered the love of journals. I really enjoy Round Robin Journal swaps and find most partners put a lot of effort in every page.

I'd like to say something about extras. I do appreciate them but do not expect them nor do they influence ratings. I usually give a heart when someone puts a lot of thought and effort into a swap and always if I really like what is sent. I admit I do love getting Mini zines. I have a growing collection of them that started when one of my partners added one in with her swap. She also encouraged me to try one and finally I did.I got the courage to join a zine go round and am having so much fun adding to whatever has been started.

About Me

For the year 2021 my word is HOPE! For the year 2022 my word is Joy. After two years of.this virus we all need more joy

Comment: Hi Joan and thanks so much for this wonderful paper doll journal page. Your background is just amazing - love the woven book pages and the beautiful blue with the ink splatters. So pretty!

Thanks also for the other extra goodies and for this really amazing swap!!

Comment: Hi Joan and thank you so much for these 3 puzzle pieces. This was such a fun swap and these pieces you made are truly beautiful. I love the nature theme and the ephemera you used is all really wonderful. May I ask where you found the flower images? Some look like Tim Holtz but not all of them. They are just all little nature works of art! And thank you so much for the extra bits! I love adding to my stash.
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! I discarded the first ones I made. I found most of the single image flowers from Pixabay. I have had the ones I used for a while and it is a bit different now. Thanks so much for the nice rating and the heart.

Comment: Wow, just love what you put together for this glue page. You have really inspired me. Thank you so much just love it. I also love the book pages you sent as well, I’ve nothing like these in my collection. ❤️🦋💐
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I so enjoy making them that I seem to use everything I can find that will fit the theme. I'm always hoping it's not too much. Thanks for the great rating and the heart. The book pages are really vintage ephemera. The book was in a carton with books someone gave me. It was falling apart so I am trying to share the pretty pages.

Comment: I think I will make these magnets. I really like what you made me. Thank you. I can’t think of anything else to do with them because puzzle pieces are pretty thick
Response: I think magnets would be a good idea. You are right, they are thick. They were fun to make though. Thanks for the nice rating and the heart.
