About Me

Updated 6/4/2022 I have enjoyed being on Swap Bot for a few years - All postage has gotten so costly, I may not be able to join as many as I would like. Also, I try to have my swaps made ahead of time to be sure that I am able to create what is being asked. Most all crafts are fun and love to learn new ones. Easy to please and try to keep this fun and not "judgemental" of others talent.

NOTE: 01/2021 I have Vision Problem (double vision in one eye from a past head injury) When handwriting, PLEASE PRINT as I have difficulty reading some cursive penmanship & please use only black or blue ink pens.

NOTE: I now have a 3 - This should have been at least a 5 - I met all the swap rules & mailed before time - Please read my response below - ) This was a swap for Fall Items, which I sent, This is All she had listed for crafts......doing red work, making baskets, crosswords and jumble puzzles???? NOTE: The Host of this swap contacted the ADM. to explain, she did not follow the rules..for rating. I guess some people are just unhappy and expect more from others?

I do not list "flakers" but I have had several.....

. ************************ Retired and love it - Do volunteer work with the library & some at our Senior Center and our Church Food Pantry.

  • all 3 Sons are grown, have one wonderful daughter in-law & One super grandson.

    I have started a Reading Journal... I LOVE Pinterest - Spend too many hours looking all the interesting boards! Learning to "write" a few short stories and just simple essays - I enjoy writing by prompts or by looking at a picture & turning it into a story.

    Do some sewing but mostly by hand. Like to make Fabric Wall Hangings - love to embroidery

Still enjoy painting on the mini canvas with Acrylics . Have also gotten caught up in the "Adult Coloring" books....find myself coloring when I should be doing other things....:)

Always have been a Big Movie Buff - I also love to read, always have a book or 2 waiting on me during my quite time. Member on goodreads, let me know if you would like to be friends.

Have 2 new, to me, crafts for 2022.....I am going to work on a "Threaded" journal this year. Found new crafts on FB and joined the clubs to learn. If you like hand sewing, you may want to check them out...... Also "Slow Stitching" -

Favorite Crafts

Jigsaw Puzzles

Photography ..

Painting/Adult Coloring

Wall Hangings


Mini Canvas Board Paintings

Threaded & Reading Journal


Religious cards ( I am Catholic so like prayer cards)


Altered/Collage 3X5 cards

Always ready to learn something new .!!


Favorite Music

Very easy with music! Must admit, I don't really listen to the "old" C&W music.

..Music is always playing while working on crafts.....

Love the Rock from 70's & 80's & 90's


Enjoy listening to Piano Music....

Favorite Movies

Have been a "Movie Buff" all my life !!!

A variety of movies, not just one type - And have a nice collection of DVD's & Bluerays....

. Action, Drama , some Comedy, some Musicals, Sy Fy, some Horror , a Romance ever so often..

It does seem to me that many of the "new" movies just don't have the great Actors/Actresses anymore...just a point of view statement.

Favorite Books

I enjoy a wide variety of reading - Many different topics & subjects

From James Patterson to Traci Peterson - really like to discover new authors.

Also poetry and/or Christian books

Please, Please NO Harliquim books.....

Please, NO smoke smells in the books - that smell just does not go away..



Love to walk for exercise.

And always on the "look-out" for something to photograph!

And my weekly "yoga" class.

And a little "Dancing" helps also

Just some Likes

I have no allergies.

I had the pleasure of opening a stocking stuffer from you today. TF January 2021 Stocking stuffer swap was pulled from my assortment of items and got opened as I unwrap a present a day during Advent. OH THE BEAUTIFUL SILVER BRACLET. I just LOVE it. It is so very ME. I am going to wear this daily. Thank you so very much. Merry Christmas and thank you for joining my swaps. Hope to see you join during 2022 as I will continue hosting these stocking stuffer ones.
