About Me

My word Is PEACE I am pleased to meet new folks and reconnect with old friends. I have several hobbies. I love to bead and make Jewelry. I know how to tat, a lost art of lace making but haven't done it in years. I have been doing counted cross stitch and I love doing it. I get better with each project I do mostly bookmarks so far. I love to color in Adult Coloring Books and Coloring Postcards. For Postcard Preferences I first want to say any postcard you like you can send me but I especially like, handmade postcards and cards as well as store bought postcards and greeting cards. I especially like art postcards, architecture, Autumn, Waterfalls, flowers, handmade postcards, coloring postcards, fall foliage or similar fall postcards, dogs especially dachshund, unicorns or horses, fairies or other fanciful creatures, sports venues, (stadiums, teams, other sports), dragons, and around Halloween I like Halloween postcards and around Christmas I like Christmas postcards. As you can tell I'm not real picky. I like my postcards stamped and sent through the mail unless otherwise directed in the swap. If for any reason you haven't received a swap item from me, please let me know. Glancing at other profiles, it looks like it's important to mention this! I'm pretty conscientious and organized and I try hard to never flake although I did several years ago. I had a nervous breakdown and flaked on a few swaps so I quit until I could get myself right. I have reached out to those swappers to see if I can send my swap to them. The people who are still active allowed me to make up the swap and changed my rating to a 5. I love my husband, kids, and their spouses, and my grandchildren. This is my long-haired dachshund Zoey at shortly after birth, 13 weeks and then 10 months. She is a real live wire. Zoey at 13 weeksZoey at 10 months

Favorite Crafts

I love cross stitch and subscribe to several magazines, even the ones from the UK. So far I have only cross-stitched on Aida 14ct, mainly bookmarks. I like stamps and use them in my art, scrapbooking, and altered books. I love beading and making my own jewelry. I like using seed beads and using different beading techniques like Peyote stitch and brick stitch. I really want to learn to make my own beaded beads if I can just find the time, lol. I do Altered Books and have 4 packed away right now as we moved a few years ago to North Carolina and I'm still trying to slowly unpack. It is difficult now as I am running out of places to put stuff. I really like using washi tape in my artwork. You can never have too much washi tape, lol. I also like doing ATCs in a wide variety of themes. I am learning to zentangle, working on 3.5 by 3.5 squares and ATCs. Here is a postcard I did for a swap. I am improving but it is going slow. I would welcome anyone's zentangle. I love making and getting things with flowers, birds, butterflies, or other flying insects such as dragonflies. I love fairies and other fantasy animals such as unicorns. I also love any dachshund images and have a scrapbook for my dog that I put the images in.

Holidays I Love

I love Halloween images and stickers, especially pumpkins with unusual faces and black cats. I love candy corn pictures and stickers too, I no longer eat candy as my diet is restrictive. I have a Halloween themed Altered Book that I am currently working on and adding received art too. I have Halloween jewelry that I wear the entire month of Oct. I love thanksgiving, cute turkeys, pictures of laden tables, and pilgrims. I add these things to my fall scrapbook. Christmas is also a favorite.Christmas tree I painted 25 years ago, sadly got lost in the move. I love Santa Clause and Father Christmas pictures of all kinds.Pictures of Christmas trees, welcome any hand drawn trees. I have a Christmas-themed Altered book that I work on year-round. I love Gingerbread houses and have a few Gingerbread ornaments on my tree. I also start wearing Christmas Jewelry on November 1st so I can wear it all. This Blue Christmas Tree Pin is the first Kirks Folly Pin I ever bought. I love holiday jewelry and am always on the lookout for it. Here is the image of the Weave Got Maile Christmas tree set I bought and made.

For Valentines day I like vintage images and cards. They don't need to be the actual cards, there are wonderful downloads out there of all kinds that I use.

St Patrick's day is another great holiday, Leprechaun and clover pictures being my favorite here.

For Easter I love decorated eggs. (Pictures of them or real blown shells.) I actually use to collect egg cups and decorated eggs to go in them but had to let them go when we moved,

My Favorite Colors

I love pink and especially the soft pastel colors, I do like all pastel colors. I love autumn colors like browns and oranges. The leaves changing on trees are so beautiful. I always welcome photos of leaves and have a scrapbook dedicated to fall. I really love all colors.

Favorite Books

I love mysteries and sci-fi books. I like the J.D. Robb Death series. I loved the Harry Potter books and the Narnia books. I also read a lot of art books (about altered art and mixed media, beading, and just recently wire jewelry). I love our local library and our kids laugh at us because we visit libraries in other cities and sit in them and read books they have, My husband likes genealogy and other libraries have different things in their archives dealing with that. I just read their art books.

Jewelry

I make and sell jewelry. I especially like to make and sell eyeglass leashes, although I have none in my shop right now. I have many for my own personal use, I can pretty much match all my clothes with one or another of them. I would welcome any kind of beaded eyeglass leashes, necklaces or earrings. I like my jewelry on the small dainty side to medium.

A great deal of my jewelry is handmade. I always welcome handmade jewelry. I have pierced ears.

Favorite Television

I watch a lot of TV. We have a DVR and we record all of the shows that are on after our bedtime. (we get up early) I like game shows and I watch Price Is Right, Lets Make A Deal everyday, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy ever night I can. I like the home improvement shows on HGTV especially the ones where they create on a shoestring budget. Some of the finished homes are eyepopping. I love baseball and the Cardinals Baseball team is my favorite.

Foods I like

First let me say, I am allergic to nothing.

I love gum. I would welcome locally made (in your area).

I love fruit and vegetables and have been working to get more in my diet. I do good on the fruit but vegetables are a challenge for me. I am a meat eater and love to cook. I love to use our slow cooker and my son and his wife gave us an instant pot we haven't opened yet. So send me a favorite recipe of yours or tell me about your favorite restaurant. I don't bake a lot any more but I use to love it. Send me your favorite cookie or cake recipe, or again tell me about your favorite sweets.
