About Me

Just a note! I have been leaving feedback on all of my swaps but for some reason they are not all sticking. If you are missing a rating from me; please let me know & I will go back in & do it again. Sorry for the inconvenience!!

Wow!! I can't believe how long it is taking mail to get where it needs to go. I sent a post card to California & it took three weeks to get there!! Sent a note card to SC & it took four weeks to get there!!. Please be patient with how long it is taking the mail to be delivered & I will do the same. It is just crazy what is going on with the post office right now. Covid has really changed a lot of things.

.I tend to like music from the 70's & 80's artists like: Elton John, Cyndi Lauper, Tina Turner, Journey, Rod Stewart, Pet shop Boys, etc. You know, music that is considered to be oldies now!! Ha Ha Ha

Favorite Television

Don't really tend to watch much tv. I love a lot of shows off of Sy-Fy. The Prodigal Son, Vikings, Walking Dead, Masked Singer, Curse Of Oak Island, Forged In Fire, etc.

Favorite Crafts

Most of the crafting I do is with rubber stamps, clip art, recycled items. Mostly making ATCs & cards but want to learn how to journal & make flip books, too. So many crafts; not enough hours in the day!

II like making mini pocket letters, ATCs, cards, scrapbook pages, chunky pages, etc. I like going to thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales to find goodies to craft with or recycle.

Comment: So lovely in its simplicity, Collette. I like what you did with the elements. Fantastic stamps, too. Thank you.
Response: You are welcome. I am glad you didn't mind the simplistic look. I just didn't think the image needed a lot of "stuff" hooked to it=)

Response: It was on the best seller's list so I hope it turns out good. I have such bad brain fog from the fibromyalgia now that I can't read anymore but it sure looked like an interesting read; hope you like it!!

Comment: Thank you so much for sending along the PC, I already have an idea for finishing it. I will use my sewingmachine, I have to blow the dust away.........;-) I love to try the rooibos tea. It is chilly over here, so that will not be any problem. Have a nice day and stay safe!

Comment: Thank you very much and have a great day!

Comment: Thank you so much for the ATC & birthday wishes! ☘️So few people actually look at that part of my profile when I do these St. Patty’s swaps. I am always so grateful when folks like you notice me on my bday! Silly, huh! I’m a grown woman, but still like to be recognized on my bday...???!!!🍀 I think it’s mostly because it’s always been kinda a big deal in life, having a grandma and mom also to share the big day with. Now that Grams is on the other side of the rainbow 🌈 it just doesn’t feel the same though. 🤔 Gosh, I miss her. Think I’m still gonna have my corned beef & cabbage dinner with my boys though...got a special bday dress at my local thriftshop too, so I’m hoping to have an occasion to get dressed up and go out. Gotta celebrate life while we can, right!!! 😉 Anyway, thank you for coord another wonderful swap!
Response: You are so welcome; as far as I am concerned; birthdays are a big deal=) They are special days=) I hope you have a wonderful time on yours...
