About Me

ABOUT ME: I am a Christian woman, retired from office work and living with my husband in the countryside. I have one grown daughter who is a nurse. I enjoy watching the many birds and animals that come onto the property especially the large gray squirrels, quail and deer.

HOBBIES: Paper crafts are my passion. Give me paper, paste and glue and I'm happy. Throw in some coloring agents and I'm over the moon. I am an amateur mixed media artist and a greeting card maker. I am a snail mail enthusiast and love writing to my pen friends. I have recently begun making junk journals and LOVE IT.

INTERESTS: Besides the above, I love to read, play word games, visit museums and browse through antique shops. I like learning new things and taking various courses on-line.

DECO BOOKS: I like most themes - I'm really not that picky - I'll do my best with any deco I receive as I know it matters to the maker/recipient. I swap USA only due to postage, although I know I may need to send a homer to an International destination. Please note: I DONT DO FRIENDSHIP BOOKS.

FAVORITE COLORS: purple, pink, turquoise, green

FAVORITE BOOKS/AUTHORS: The Bible, Anne Perry, Rhys Bowen, L. M. Montgomery, Jane Austen, almost any mystery novel, but especially British ones

BLOGS: Art to the 5th, Robin-Marie Smith, Rae Missigman, Jane Austen Letter Writing Society, Everything Art, The Lost Art of Letter Writing

WISH LIST:
Ephemera for junk journals, collage and mail art; Coffee or tea stained paper for junk journals; Paper Doilies - any size; die cuts; paper flowers; anything botanical; Glitter pens; Stencils for mixed media art; Permanent markers; Paint pens; White Sharpie

SPECIAL LIKES: Anything vintage, British, the Eiffel Tower, flowers, chocolate, pretty paper and the Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian Era

DISLIKES: PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME ANY FRIENDSHIP BOOKS, non-Christian religious items, Childish or teacher reward stickers. I'm not a fan of the dark side of Halloween.

Comment: Thank you so much, the lovely Pokémon and bird themed decos for your resend arrived today. I also sent you a PM as your note triggered a memory of some decos and I think I may have somehow missed logging your original and asked for a resend in error. Hoping to make this up to you!

Comment: I had as much fun opening each envelope as you had putting them together! I enjoyed R (rainbow stickers, recipe card, and rose embellishments & paper), A (ace cards and Apple die cuts), I (vintage people images), N (floral napkin, note card, and a nickel). I also enjoyed your included note & extra stickers (lovely flowers and cats). Thanks for a fun swap!!
