About Me

Some things I like to do: Anything outside to do with nature, bird watching, gardening, wild flowers, photography, hiking, but not sports. I also sew, quilt, read mysteries,travel, and I like cooking. But my passion is fused glass art and doing all kinds of crafts and spending time with my granddaughter teaching her to love the things I love. I have a small hobby fused glass business to keep me busy in my retirement from teaching. Colors, I love all bright colors but not so much pastels and not browns grays or dark color.Love seeing other peoples art. Love arty well made ATC's. I am addicted to making these things.

Favorite Music

I like mostly oldies from the 40's and 50's and country.

Favorite Books

I like mysteries and especially like the British settings. I also read historical fiction, cookbooks, craft books,and travel books.

Favorite Television

Don't watch much TV., the news, Seattle Mariners baseball, antique Road Show and NCIS. I would rather read or do crafts. I also do the Wii fit to try (ha ha ) to stay a little bit in shape.

don't care for...

. Don't care much for stickers or fussy, frilly girly stuff,the color pink,& too cutesy things. I really, really dislike pink, but if that is what you make that is fine too. I know you all mean well but I really do not need any more paper as I have tons of it and will never get it used in this life time. Do not need ribbon or glitter. Do not have pierced ears. No perfume or religious items please. I really, really dislike pink!

Likes

I like birds and nature related things. Bright colors, except pink. Seeds, shells, interesting rocks, charms I can use on act's, home made paper, & small unique items from other places in the world.

Comment: I can't believe I didn't rate this for you! When I received it I had it all worked out in my head what I was going to say, and I thought I told you! Oops! I'm sorry! I'm glad that you tried something new with the recycled plastic! Everything is put together very well and is appealing to the eye. Now... take a chance and make the plastic work harder for you! Cut it, shape it, melt it, whatever and add it as an element to your design! Have fun! And thanks for joining in this swap! Scratch that.. now I've looked at it closer and you DID work with it! Wow! So many layers and a great outcome! Very nice!! PS... LOVE your photo card! What an awesome idea! :)

Comment: super fab. love the interesting atc you created, like looking at flags through a window, also the glass tag, my 2nd from you, and my flag brooch, I have a collection of vintage and unique brooches and pins this is a wonderful addition to my collection. I don't know how I got so lucky it's my 2nd brooch in a week, and I don't think it's on my profile! Thank you, I'm already thinking of how I can hang hand the lovely glass ornaments in my window to catch the light!

Comment: Oh My goodness! What a beautiful atc! Far too special to put in my album. It will have a special place on my kitchen window sill so that I can enjoy it everyday. The extras are super too. I will do something special with the extra glass ornament and the little shell sequins etc were just a bonus. I really love my atc. Thank you!

I just couldn't pass the opportunity by to say a huge thank you for the ATC My Pretty Valentine Swap you sent me. I love the way you did it, most unusual. It made my day as I am feeling down with my computer being really down an out with 2 viruses. Your goodies you sent me put a huge smile on my face and so chased the blues away for another day. Thank you.

I can see why you have all those hearts - you are a wonderfully generous person and a skilled artist! I received a completely unexpected RAK in the mail this morning, which not only included a sweet notecard, a perfectly-to-my-taste assortment of papers and ribbons, but an absolutely beautiful handmade glass pendant in black and iridescent green (which just happens to be the colour scheme I'm wearing today, so you can guess how quickly I swapped necklaces....) Thank you so much! I'm leaving for my two-month summer vacation in five days, but I would be so happy to set up a Korean goodies swap with you in September when I get back. Hugs of immense delight and appreciation, Judith
