About Me

I am a child of a God and I consider myself to be a spiritual person. I am compassionate and loving, most of the time!

I am a "Jill of all trades" when it comes to crafting! I like to do many things but would not claim to be an expert in any of them. I craft for my pleasure and for gift giving.

I am retired after working for 47 years mostly in the world of law and investments. I love being a mom to boys, four of them to be exact! College football is my favorite sport (Go Ducks!)

I love being a grandma and my Texas grand daughters have turned me into a Great Grandma!! I go by "GiGi Ali" to that little gang! 3 grandsons and a grand-daughter live in Colorado and 3 grand-daughters plus 6 greats are in Texas. Way too far to snuggle!

I can easily be considered a "chocoholic"! I have never tasted a dessert that I would ever call "too rich"! I look forward to my morning coffee and afternoon teas, especially Chai, Lavender, Earl Grey,, English Breakfast and all sorts of flavored cocoa.

I am an active, outdoors type of person. I recently took up golf and LOVE it! I would love to find a golf partner who doesn't care about the score. In January 2023 I joined the Hikers' 365 Challenge. That is 365 miles of hiking in one year. Currently completed 80 miles as of early March. I love to travel, read, go "junking", hike, visit botanical gardens and gardening stores and SHOP!

I consider myself a collector of the "stuff". While I don't always have time to actually make a lot of the things that I love, I do have all or most of the " stuff" it takes to do so!

I am a Doterra wellness advocate. I am passionate about essential oils and enjoy making my own cleaning products to reduce the toxic load in my home!

Favorite Crafts

Card making; Scrapbooking; Paper crafting but not so much ATC's; Rubber stamping; Doll making; Machine embroidery; Sewing for the home, crafts and some clothing; Rock hounding; Jewelry making; Creating minis for my Nativity diorama (my latest addiction!)

Themes that I prefer are: Asian, Dragonflies, Butterflies, Floral, Gardening, Birds and Bird Houses, Ocean, Friendship, Thank You, Sympathy, Thinking of You, Inspirational Quotes.

I pretty much like all colors but my favorite colors are turquoise, red, black, hot pink, teal, gold, copper and silver. I love shiny metallic and glitter paper!

I am in love with Stampin Up; dies for my Big Kick, double sided paper; anything Mary Englebreit; anything Graphic 45, old metal ephemera like watch gears, small pieces of stamped metal, old style orphaned jewelry, etc; adhesives of all kinds; rubber stamps; and layered embellishments (esp Jolee's, K & Co., & Tim Holtz)! Hmmm...what don't I like!? Oh there are a few...

Themes that I would rather NOT receive are: Satanic or "dark", Disney, Hello Kitty, Kawaii or similar cutsie/kiddie, anything using foul or offensive language, school or awards type stickers.

Favorite Music

I am blessed to enjoy most genres but usually listen to Hawaiian, Irish, contemporary country, blues and music from the 70`s-80's! I love Sarah Brightman, Andre Bocelli, Keola Beamer, Celtic Woman, Ed Sheeran, James Taylor, Judy Collins and I think that Stevie Ray Vaughn was the best guitarist who ever lived! I really don't watch movies or weekly television programs aside from the news.

Comments

I come from a non-smoking household, am allergic to cigarette smoke and animal hairs (esp cats) so if possible, please try to take this into consideration when sending me your swaps. A quick pass over with a lint remover for hairs or airing outdoors a bit for smoke usually does the trick.

Also, I donate to several charities that send me plenty of their free notecards, greeting cards, address labels, notepads, stickers and other miscellaneous stuff, so I would prefer that you don't send me any of those freebie type items.

Since I am a cardmaker, I pretty much only use size A2 envelopes or larger.

I rarely make ATC's. I don't care for bits of scrap papers, pieces of napkins, magazine cutouts, etc.

Being a sewer, I have LOTS of fabric scraps, embroidery thread, lace, etc, so I really don't have a need for those items. I AM happy to share some of my stash so if you are looking for something in particular, feel free to ask me!

I pledge to send out my swaps promptly and I will rate quickly with the wonderful comments, hearts, etc that you deserve! I love reading your profiles and I am grateful when people read mine.

If for some reason you do not receive my swap in a timely manner, please send me a message so we can figure this out. Lately, I have had more than a few issues with mail not being delivered or arriving very late! I have never flaked on a swap. I value my good ratings.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful floral card with the shiny dragonfly adornment. It’s good to see you coming back to join a few swaps. Happy mail (creating, sending, and receiving) is good for the soul. I still have some years left before Ican think about retiring. Yes, we’re back to work in person (3 days per week), and 2 days at home. It’s super nice not to have to wear masks all day! Thanks, too for the green tea and the stamped images and scripture. 💕

Hi! Just wanted to let you know that yes I am receiving your mail for “4 Weeks of snail mail! Only one left. I have enjoyed all you have sent! You ask if Indy weather had been different this year, it’s never the same! My mom always said Indiana weather changes by hour not by seasons 😂. Hope you have a blessed day🙏

Thank you Ali, for the CF happy mail. I love Bachelor's Buttons and I can't wait to get the seeds in the ground. I love everything you sent. Yes. We need rain here too. Did we think it would ever be necessary to pray for rain in Oregon?

Ali, Love the little "upside-down" turtle.... that's how I feel at the moment! Thanks for your sweet thoughts I'm recovering, though not as fast as I want! (Hubby says "be patient"), but I'm not use to the inactivity.... though PT has me doing 1 hour of exercises and a 15 minute "walk" with my walker 4 times a day.... that does take up a bunch of time, LOL.
