About Me

Update Nov 14, 2023 - I had a great time visiting my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson for a couple of weeks at the end of October. Back to swapping.

  • Please note, I only go to my mailbox 1 time per week, and I rate as soon as I open any swap.

  • If you do not receive a swap, please reach out to let me know. I appreciate the opportunity to replace the original.

I am retired, married and we live with our cat, Casey in a quiet cowboy/horse town in the Arizona desert. We have an adult son and he, his wife, and our grandson live in Europe. I LOVE being a grandma!

I enjoy all types of DIY projects and want to try and learn it all! I love to go to flea markets and antique stores - the fun is in the hunt for that perfect piece to add to my collections! I have even gotten my husband interested.

I enjoy playing MahJongg and play once a week with a group at our local community center. I also play in local MahJongg tournaments and those keep me on my toes! (I won my first prize on Aug 3, 2023!)

Favorite Crafts

I love Paper Crafts - card making, journaling, book making, ATC's. My friend finally got me into decos and i'm really enjoying creating those.

I love mixed media art and assemblage. I make "memory jugs" using a lot of my favorite collections. I currently am making an angel jug where the base is a 5-gallon stone crock, encrusted with angels, and I have a mannequin bust I am encrusting with religious medals and will hang my collection of rosaries on.

I enjoy quilting and am currently working on 2 queen size quilts for my guest room. I finished the Cat in the Hat quilt. Still need to finish How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Favorite Books

I read every John Grisham novel. I enjoy a good story that engages a reader from the first chapter. Absolutely loved The Hunger Games series - Katniss Everdeen lives in my heart forever. I have not read the Harry Potter books, nor have I seen the movies - while I have some interest, I think the "hype" keeps me away. Possibly my expectations are too high? I have recently read Celeste Ng's novels and highly recommend any of her books.

Favorite Movies

I don't watch a lot of movies, but my top favories include Dirty Dancing, Shawshank Redemption, Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music, It's A Wonderful Life, and how could I forget The Godfather Trilogy (but #2 is my favorite)

Favorite Television

Lately we watch a lot of shows on Netflix. My husband loves the limited series. If anything goes past a 3rd season, he loses interest and then I have to watch the rest on my own, which is fine. I spend more time watching You Tube Videos and like watching tutorials to learn a new craft or technique.

Favorite Music

I like a variety of music, including oldies, rock n roll, current pop artists, country, and will occasionaly tune into classical and broadway showtunes.

Things I Like

  • ATCs
  • Small chachkies / vintage chachkies
  • Vintage photos especially of people
  • Anything handmade
  • Old doll heads
  • Vintage hankies
  • Vintage lace
  • Pins
  • Angels
  • Old glass marbles
  • Old rosaries (not plastic)

Please do not send:

  • Any food, drinks, candy (I cannot eat sugar and follow a specific diet)
  • Lotions, bath products
  • Scented or perfumed items
  • Anything that smells like smoke

Comment: Thanks for sending the Unthemed ICM made for Miss Kitty Hello by Jessica P. It has some great entries. Love your handmade card!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card you made! I wish I could be more artistic with creating cards. I have 2 7’ tall bookshelves loaded with rubber stamps that I inherited. I’m just not handy with making cards. You inspired me to try again.
Response: Oh Mimosagirl, that is GREAT! Try again! Would love to see a pic of your creations!
