About Me

My name is Mindy. I've lived in New Hampshire all of my life. I've been with my boyfriend, Packy, for 16 years. I have 4 fabulous daughters. My oldest is Kaila 33, Marissa 27, Shania 23 and Ciera 22. I also became a Grammy on June 25, 2021. Her name is Piper and I ADORE her. I love it when we can all get together which isn't as often as it used to be. I really enjoy doing lots of different crafts. I'm always looking for something new to create. However, my favs will always be paper crafts and crocheting. I Love to make paper embellishments and I'm always up for a private swap. I am a Service Coordinator/Supervisor. I set up elderly with services that will help keep them in their homes as long as possible and supervise over 20 Direct Support Providers I love my job. I also eat a whole food/plant based diet.


*I LOVE DIE CUTS!!!! I like to use them on ATC’s, envelopes, etc. Feel free to send me some!

*gingerbread men💕

*Swapping Happy Mail

*hummingbirds (all birds)

*Dunkin Donuts coffee. I should just have an IV put directly into my vein considering how much I drink!

*Christmas anything. I totally have OCD=Obsessive Christmas Disorder!

*Anything PINK, iridescent or sparkley. How can one not smile when they see something pink and sparkly?

*Flea market finds. I have a huge Christmas Village display and I got most of the pieces at flea markets.

*Plastic canvas. I bought a huge bin full of plastic canvas sheets and books at a flea market about 7 years ago and I've been hooked ever since. I like to do it when I watch tv cuz it keeps my hands busy. I especially like to make PC Christmas ornaments!

*Crochet. My Grandmother taught me when I was 8 years old. I especially like to make afghans, pillows and Christmas stockings.

*I LOVE decorating for Christmas. That's why I start in November and keep it up til January. I decorate for all of the holidays.

*Pinterest. I can get lost on Pinterest for hours. It just sucks me in and before I know it, I've lost 2 hours of my life!

Favorite Television

I like to binge watch series on NETFLIX and HULU

Favorite Books

*Amish books. I find it interesting how they live and their sense of community.

*Mythical books. Great when I want to escape the real world.

*Chicken soup for the soul books. I have 6 Christmas versions I like to reread.

Obviously, I read a variety of different books.

I'm the kind of person that can picture the story in my mind while I'm reading it as if I'm watching it on a movie screen. Sometimes I'm so involved in the book that when I take a break, it takes me a few minutes to adjust to reality, lol.

I have to take breaks from reading sometimes because it can suck up so much of my life!

I also enjoy listening to audio books in my car because sometimes I travel far for my job.

Favorite Movies

*A Christmas Story

*Jim Carrey version of The Grinch

*All the Hallmark Christmas movies

*Harry Potter movies, I'm such a dork

*Anything with Robert DeNiro



*Sheets ripped off of memo pads or post it notes. I literally toss them right in the trash.

*smoking. I hate it when the scent gets into my clothes. Yuck!

*rude people. I don't understand why some people have to use a pissed off tone when they speak to someone. You get a lot more when you’re kind towards others.

*onions. I wish I liked them because so many people use them when they cook. I gag when I eat them.

*Mushrooms. I gag when I eat these too.

*extremely late raters. I can't stand it when 2 weeks go by after I send something and they still haven't rated me. It leaves me wondering if they ever got it or if it got lost. Or even worse, when months go by and then I suddenly get a message stating they never received my swap.

*no more stickers! Especially the tiny ones. Unless they are Christmas stickers.

*I don't care for religious Christmas cards


Comment: Cute envie. I'm adding it to my "advent" pile. Can't wait to open it
Comment: Thank you and happy holidays.
Comment: Hello Mindy! Thank you for the gorgeous card! I love how you decorated the card, too! Very imaginative! I haven't heard of those two podcasts, I'll look them up! For HP, I've been looking for ancillary books to get more insight to the series - books that are sort of psychological reviews of the book. I'm excited to receive them! Be well. Merry Christmas!

Comment: Mindy, this stocking tag is amazing! You actually created an embossed, dimensional stocking, and put a sweet gingerbread boy inside! What a clever idea. I love the papers you used and all the little embellishments--especially that candy cane--so cute! Congratulations on being a first-time grandma, too. Many thanks for a wonderful swap!

I teared up near the end of that father/daughter story. That something wonderful could happen after the tragedy was remarkable. I was also struck by the fact the family hired not one but two different lawyers to check him out! Glad you enjoyed the article.
