About Me

I am an Arizona transplant to Colorado. I miss the Arizona desert but equally love the Colorado mountains. I am a stay at home mom with two active little boys. I spend some of my spare time on photography (especially birds and other nature), gardening, crafts and genealogy.

I Like

  • purple (the color),
  • brown (the color, esp when combine with purple, pink or blue),
  • Gladiolas, irises, daisies,
  • butterflies,
  • dragonflies,
  • hawks,
  • reading,
  • spring,
  • gardening,
  • Postcards - I am beginning a collection of state map postcards.
  • colorful craft paper,
  • fabric (esp small pieces I can use for quilt squares for an I-spy quilt for my boys)
  • trains (my boys love trains)
  • canceled US postage stamps,
  • Philadelphia mint state quarters in good condition (any one is fine, it is difficult to find the P's instead of the D's in Colorado),
  • I will always like homemade items. I respect the time put into making things. I have never had a softee.

Favorite Crafts

Cross stitch - esp. birds of prey, flowers and patriotic.

Doodling - I have pictures of some of my doodles on my flickr page.

paper crafts - creations from cardstock, cards, etc. I enjoy making FBs and have been making many lately.

Sewing - I am a novice sewer. I made a skirt a few years back but outgrew it before I finished. A year ago I flew down to visit my Mom and get sewing lessons. We made two skirts and I learned a lot. Recently I have been looking at all of the sewing tutorials online and I want to try one soon.

I collect

Rocks. My Great-Great Uncle Howard got me started collecting rocks. Most of my collection was supplied by him but I would someday like to go rock hounding.

US postage stamps. I collect US postage stamps. I used to work on my collection as my Father worked on his. I plan to someday start my kids collecting stamps.

state quarters (I don't have many of the Philadelphia minted state quarters).


If you would like to do a private swap for a card I have listed on flickr please let me know.

Not sure what to send me? I would be happy with any postcard you send me.

I do collect:

  • mapcards
  • scenic cards with state (or country) name printed on front
  • state postcards

Response: Wow. This swap was from December 2009. My notebook where I kept track of contact attempts to see if you received has been long ago thrown away. Wow.
