About Me

I lived in Colorado most of my life and recently moved to Oklahoma. Hubby and I load up our dachshunds(Harley & Zoey) during the summer months and head to the lakes/Ozarks for weekend campouts and hiking with family and friends. We also travel to other destinations in the summer months for vacation time. Winter months are usually time to travel to warmer locations and when home you can find me in my craft room.

We love to travel. Have been to several foreign countries and have been in all 50 US states.

Favorite Music

I listen to 60's, 70's and 80's music mostly. Do not like rap or new age. (Thanks to my son :)

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading scrapbooking books/magazines. Lots of great tips and techiques to do or try. I love to try different types of media for different effects. Love the little leaflets/handouts given at Michaels and JoAnn's on scrapbooking projects and how to do's.

Favorite Movies

I watch about everything, so I give all movies a chance to see if it appeals to me. I figure if I don't like it I can always change or watch something else. At least I gave it a chance :)

Favorite Crafts

I mainly stick to scrapbooking and paper crafts. I use to do cross-stitch and crocheting but haven't done both in a long time. I do sew sometimes on my cards and scrapbook pages. My favorite color is blue but love the earthy tones as well.

Favorite Television

I watch Criminal Minds, TLC, Reelz, and History. I enjoy watching baseball and football but would rather go to the game and experience it live!!


I really am not into the following: 1.Hello Kitty and such materials 2. Kawaii 3.bright colors 4.will not do food items thru swaps 5.waiting on people (mostly my kids :) 6.rude and pushy people

IMPORTANT, please read!!

I ALWAYS mail my swaps on or before the send date so if you don't receive something from me, please send me a message telling me. I will resend it if it happens to get lost in the mail or does not get delivered. Also, if I have not received a rating from you, I will follow up to make sure you receive my sent swap. I would rather work it out then received a poor rating. Communication is key. I HONOR my swaps. :)
