Hi my name is Sherry, but I got the nickname Churlann from my kids a long time ago. They thought it was cute so it stuck with me. I live in a small rural farming community called Pennsylvania Furnace. Swappers often ask me how it got it's name, so here ya go. Back in the 1800's there were several iron furnaces in the area and the ruins of PA. Furnace is on our little road, by the creek. It is still partially there and is being restored by the historical society. We are close to State College That's our go-to town for shopping, work, library and events We love living near a university town but far enough away that we don't have to deal with traffic and the crazy student population on a daily basis.. Especially on football weekends. Go Penn State!
I have been retired from teaching elementary kiddos, in an emotional support program, for 7 years now! I still miss it, but I love having freedom to do other things that I love.
I am a Gramma to 7 beautiful children, ages range from 13 to 4. Two bio, 2 adopted, and 3 bonus children. How blessed are we?!! I live with my husband, and our cat, Maybelle. We lost our little Beagle, Angel, last Fall.We miss her everyday. Maybelle has been so entertaining. She is getting big and loves to explore the outdoors. We love having a garden and raising some chickens. We have 12 Barred Rock hens that bless us with eggs every day. My newest hobby is kayaking, although not in January when I am writing this. I got a kayak for my 70th birthday last August. It was the highlight of our pandemic summer! My whole family are all photographers. My favorite subjects are landscapes from my kayak, animals, old barns, anything interesting that catches my eye, and of course all those grandkids too! I love to read books but mostly in the winter. I love to cook and try new and interesting recipes. I have been gluten free and low sugar for six years now and feel so much healthier for it. So if you are sending me recipes, keep that in mind. Thanks. I have three grown children, and even though they aren't at home anymore, I still spend time with them whenever I can. We are a very close family. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 48 years and we are happy to this day. Sam retired last summer and it's been going great.
I love music,!! I have a huge collection of CD's. Some of them are signed by the artist. My favorite genres are Bluegrass, Old Timey, Old Country, and old Rock and Roll. My husband is a musician, playing dobro and guitar, He has played in several Bluegrass bands. We go to at least three Bluegrass Festivals every summer and go to many concerts that are local. But I have all kinds of music in my collection which is vast. Anything from Adele to Merle Haggard.
I love to sew just about anything. I've been sewing since I was 10 years old. I love fabrics, especially linen and cotton prints. Right now I'm working on bowl cozies, quilted storage pods and bunting flags for crafts fests I do in the fall. I also love photography. I love to take photos of family and beautiful and interesting subjects and make cards for friends and swap partners. I love flower gardening and making fresh cut bouquets. My favorite summer activity is kayaking on lakes.
Please don't forget to rate when you receive a swap. I don't archive until rates are done both ways. Let me know by message if you have not received my swap. I will make it right!! I would hate to get a low rating for something that didn't show up. I am faithful at sending. I love reading the notes in my swaps. I learn so much about people. So if you send me something I will definitely read it.
POSTCARDS: VINTAGE, black and white are my favorite, art themed, animals, and birds.Would love to have postcards from other countries.
