ME

SOME NEW INTERESTS

(in case you've been sending to me for years and are tired of my profile)

  • Button Box pc's
  • umbrella/rain/cloud images
  • vinyl, vellum or any large stickers

I love to do paper art, scrapbooking and journaling. Jesus loves me & I am eternally grateful. I love being a wife, mom, former Disneyland tour guide & teacher.

Passions for Handel's Messiah, country music, zydeco, CS Lewis, e e cummings, Max Lucado, Gaudi, French Impressionist painters, The West Wing, Amazing Race, NYC, the Tour de France. My favorite travels: France, New Zealand, Switzerland, Barcelona, London & the Cotswolds, Yosemite, Kauai and a Disney cruise anywhere!

I collect old and new Golden Books and pop up books for kids and adults, Disney and Disneyland items (the older the better!) My happy place is the beach/ocean. Sitting in solitude on my verandah on a Disney cruise ship, enjoying the sea, clouds and sunshine is perfect!

One of my favorite things about my job is that I get to assist many precious families visiting Disneyland through the Make a Wish Foundation!

Comment: Eye-yi-Eye! Your envie with that weird bunch of eyes really tickled my off-beat funny bone. So great to find you in my mailbox. I'm a big fan of photo booth photos so that one was my favorite PC, though I did get a laugh out of that vintage grocery shopper. Also like the hand holding the cocktail - & not just because I like hands! Hope the torrential rains aren't affecting you too badly. Here's looking at you, kid!

Comment: Thank you for joining! I have another "make good art" swap involving a prompt coming up, "books." You might like that one, too! <3 The tag/bookmark is something I need to make but somehow it always slips my mind. I like the different pages you've been able to find and collage. Would you like any Chinese or Korean newspapers? We have both locally. I bet there are some Arabic newspapers too, since Tampa has a lot of diversity in just my area. Thank you especially for writing. I do tend to save letters.
