About Me

FEBRUARY, 7, 2021

I am not a "talkative" person,esp. when it. comes to myself. So if you have questions,ask me and I will tell you,with no problems,judgement or advice.

So many people have issues with religion,that I will get "it out of the way,right away" I will say my piece and if you wish you will not have to deal with it again.

. I am a Born Again Southern Baptist,no, I am not a stereo-type that you might have seen on T.V. or the movies.I don't hollar or scream and neither does my pastor or the congregation.I won't "talk" religion unless you specifically ask me about it,such as how one becomes saved through Christ. Then I would be more than happy to tell you.

I will never flake,on the other hand the postal service is un-reliable. So if you have not received a swap from me,it is becase:

  1. the postal service goofed. ( seems more common these days.)
  2. I am really ill and can't crawl to the computer to tell you. ( my family would not bother to post to let y'all know))
  3. I died.

I am serious about those reasons.If you are down with the flu, hospitalized or heaven forbid killed in a car wreck, how will your partners know? Long time swappers have dropped out of site and ugly things are left on their site for flaking.


I really worry sometimes that if people do not respond that they may be ill or something tragic happened,so i try not to get too upset if I am flaked on.

So let me know if you did not receive a swap in a reasonable amount of time so I can get another to you,also if the postal service mangled things,let me know and I will replace it.Also,for any reason that you are dissatisfied let me know and I will see if I can fix it to both our satisfaction.

I am married(43) years this coming April 2021)Two children,a daughter that is 40 and not interested in starting a family. A son who is 33 and with a much older woman,they presented me with my first grandchild(a boy).The grandson is 7 now.

. (I was a professsional florst for 32 years, then I worked part time delivering meals on wheels.) On Nov. 5th,2012, I went back into the floral industry as a designer and Jane of all in a small shop here in town. Did not think I would do this ever again,but here I am!!!!Feb.10th,2014.....I quit the flower business again! I am just burnt out with it. I have been involved with the floral industry since I was 18 and going to school for that,then in a green house for a few months and my first floral job at 19.That is a long time! I am now at our local walmart and working in the crafts dept. So far so good.Jan.15,2015. Has been almost year of Walmart. Got my first raise and they told me my performance was solid,and that I was excellent with the customers. I aim to please!(January 2015).Now my husband and I are living with my mom ( to care for her,she has since passed N0V. 2016) and I no longer work at walmart . DEC. 2016......started back with meals on wheels...love it!

Unfortunately, the funds for meals on wheels were cut and the end of March 2018 the organization was shut down.It had been running for close to 40 years in Floresville.

I enjoy nature and all living creatures and I LOVE to bird watch in my yard. I keep an assortment of bird foods out.

Since my mom passed on (nov. 2, 2016 ) I have "inherited" her big dog stray she adopted. His name is Boi.

In March of 2018 I adopted a Chihuahua. I named her FANG. She is very loving and sweet.



DISLIKES.....I don't like colors that have been muddied.Like when you mix red and blue and then get purple,don't keep mixing untill it looks like mud.That can happen to any colors (paint) that are over mixed.

REALLY CAN'T STAND THESE: Disney,strawberry shortcake ,carebears or ANY BEARS in general( I do not find bears to be cute,all I see are the 8 inch razor claws and the fangs),barbies,smurfs, and other such cartoons that are overly sweet,cutesey-poo or "doe-eyed" NO ANIMAE!!!!....

LIKES.... Edgie art,out of the box thinking,I love nature and ALL ANIMALS( except bears),esp. birds of all types. Insects are great even the "gruesome" ones. Vintage anything,steampunk,goofy looking stuff.WORD PUNS.

COLORS,not really fussy about colors,BUT,these are my favorites in no particular order.


red,yellow purple,

red, yellow blue


burgandy,orange purple,green,matte gold.(fall colors)


teal,chocolate brown,beige,ivory.

shades of chocolate brown,fawn and shades of blue .
dark bright pinks.


hot orange, hot pink, neon lime

AS FOR THEMES FOR ATCS......, I like...nature,humorous(play on words) ,glitter,bling and glitz,vintage is great,too.Hand drawn,painted,digital,collaged. All ATCs=delite!!! A lot of different styles, they all have their own merit.Steampunk. One cutsey thing I do ADORE...house mouse. .Handmade,painted, crafted backgrounds are great on ATCs. AS LONG IT IS MORE THAN STICKERS OR ANY IMAGE SLAPPED ON PAPER,art is created by You.Any effort at decorating,coloring blinging,painting,ribbons is greatly appreciated by me.

Favorite Movies

Comedies,drama,action, classic horror.(no blood and guts)EXCEPTION>>>The walking dead.I always like the cheesy Sat. afternoon T.V. movies.Godzilla type movies. Suspense,sci-fi,esp, sci-fi.

The Help,Titanic,It's a wonderful Life,The Thorn Birds,The Men in Black series.The Longest Ride.Sommersby. IT.All the Star-trek And many more.

Favorite Television

Big Bang Theory , CSI (the orginal) Love ME-TV. I don't know if that is available everywhere,but it shows the oldie shows,like Donna Reed,DickVan Dyke, I love Lucy, Gilligans' Island,Bonanza,Star Trek the original,the outer limits.I DO NOT CARE FOR THE Reality SHOWS.ecxcept my guilty pleasure,which is AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL. I like to see the tips and tricks of photography ,the drama not so much.

Favorite Books

Authors...Jodi Picoult,.Sara Gruen,Lisa See, Amy Tan,,Robin Cook,Ken Follette,James Patterson,early Dean Koontz,Early Stephen King,Robert James Waller, C.J. Box, Janet Evonovitch,along those lines. I like to read the dictionary. Yep! I do. I love words and play on words. "The Left Behind" series is a great read.

Favorite Music

I like it all....... classical,Jazz,christian,country,classic rock.I am not glued to an i-pod or anything like that.Anything,as long as it is not rap or obscene.

Krafts and such

I have tried soap making,candlemaking,beading jewelry,embroidery,crochette,knitting,sewing,painting with oils,gardening. But paper crafts are my fav,esp. collage on ATC's.


I see so much asked for on wish lists. Do people really send all those things to each other?
In that case,I would like... .

Ephemera that is only found in your local area.

Foreign language pages. Steampunk things. .Now, that was painless,right?
