About Me

I was a civil servant for 30 years before retiring as a Data Analyst from Department of Defense. I volunteer at our local library pulling books for inter library loans. I also do volunteer work at my church with an emphasis on education and outreach. I work at our local food bank and resource center. I often do volunteer baking for fundraisers for these different groups.

I love quilting, knitting, reading, baking, and painting with watercolors and acrylics.

Favorite Music

I grew up in the 80's, so 80's music rules! I love New Wave, particularly The Split Enz and Crowded House.

Favorite Books

I usually prefer non-fiction. The only books I've read lately are about painting with watercolors and acrylics.

Favorite Television

I don't watch much tv. It's usually "second hand". When I do, it's usually TLC, the History Channel, National Geographic, and the like.

Quilting

I've been quilting on and off for over 20 years. I have a number of machines and LOTS and LOTS of fabric. I could live on a deserted island (with electricity) the rest of my life and not use all that I have.

Pens and Paper

I do everything 0 or 100%. No in between. The same goes for my love of paper and pens. While I have managed to part with a great deal of my paper, I still have a wonderful collection of pens. I'm always on the look out for the perfect pen. Even when I find one that I am very happy with, I can't help but think there is still one better. Hence my continued quest.

Extras and Ratings

I'm not a big fan of extras. They are not required, so please don't feel obligated to send any.

I do give hearts 💕 for the swap being of exceptional quality/work, not the extras.

Comment: Love the New Leaf Green that you picked out for your new library room! I'm in agreement with you, not a huge fan of green and orange together. :) Thanks too for the book review, The Doctors Blackwell looks interesting ... including what you said about looking down on nurses and other women.

Comment: Pretty good weekend... awesome that you bought so many toys for the food pantry Christmas baskets! So Brilliant! Also enjoyed looking at the Repurposed table tops... I think the cell phone cover is my favorite, or maybe the crayons, but they are all really cool! :)

Comment: yay, i can relate: 1 - absolutely! email swaps are not necessarily easier - me, too, struggling with how to get everything coordinated before clicking! 2 - de-cluttering is endless!!! i have gotten rid of a LOT of stuff since retiring 14 years ago, but things still have a tendency to disappear from where i sorta remember where & wonder if i ever will figure out what i want to do once all the excess stuff is cleared 3 - Satchel's & Repurpose Project sound like wonderfully unique places - hooray for getting all that kid's charity shopping done! > thanks for sharing your exciting weekend!

Comment: Thanks for the note and postcard. You did have a busy weekend. I need to declutter. May do some this week since I’m off. Love the story of your breakfast guests. I also LOVE a sharp dressed man!
Response: As I'm decluttering, I'm trying to find people who will appreciate the things I loved. It makes it easier to give away. Glad you like Mickey Mouse!

Comment: oh wow! You had breakfast with two random strangers!! That's so awesome... I'm super shy too, and dang, you are just my hero right now! :D Thank you for sharing that with me! We also have some Camellias blooming right now, but they are the pale pink varieties... you got great pics!
Response: I felt compelled to invite them to the table. It must have been a divine appointment. I love taking pictures. I should do it more often, I'm just usually into what I'm doing and forget.

Comment: Thanks for your great letter! It was right up my alley. I am going to write you back but have a question first -- what pen/nib did you use? I am looking for a similar swoop but haven't really found it. Hello from Newport!
Response: Thanks for the rating. I hope you write soon.

Comment: Thank you for re-sending, Liz. It’s commendable that you are doing the honest work to repair your rating. I wish I could ❤️ a three rating. The shamrock ☘️ ATC is a fond reminder of my late Grandma Cook 🍀 and times together in her garden! Still, I understand that swapbot rules will not allow for a higher rating due to the significant tardiness and lack of adequate communication. This swap was due 11/4/19. I messaged you that nothing had arrived on 11/25/19. You replied back that you would “rectify” on 11/30/19. I asked on 12/5/19 if “rectify” meant that you’re resending. No reply. I messaged you again on 12/16/19. Still no reply. The AMA group coordinator sent an angel swap and instructed me to rate the one on 1/5/20 because you had not responded to either of us. It was 7/25/21 when you finally messaged me that you’d like to resend. I replied that I’d prefer ATCs over PCs on 7/27/21. You asked for specifics about the theme of the collage on 8/5/21, to which I responded the same day giving you liberty to choose a theme for me. The cards came today (9/10/21). It struck me as odd that your return address is in the same state as I am, and both cards that you sent say they’re “made 2019”. It’s none of my business why these took so long, I only wish you’d communicated better. That way I might’ve been able to rate you a five because we made arrangements.
Response: Thx for the new rating.
