About Me

I'm married and have 1 dog and 2 new kittens. I'm a teacher. I love to travel.

Please! If you don't receive a swap from me, let me know and I will be happy to re-send. I have found that the USPS cannot be trusted. They even returned to me the entire top inch of an envelope I sent, the rest of which was just lost due to their machine tearing it up.

If you receive something from me with postage due, please tell me and I will reimburse you for it.

Please rate me--I want to know that you received my swap because I DO NOT flake!

Likes / Dislikes

While I like anything that a person is nice enough to send me, I don't particularly care for cartoon-themed items or country/western items.

And please, no friendship books, decos, etc.--I don't swap those.

My favorite color is red, but I like all colors.

Following are some particular likes:



washi tape

ribbon, lace, fibers

Favorite Crafts

I'm not an artist by any means, but I love to make greeting cards and other paper crafts like bookmarks. Pinterest has provided me with much inspiration! Thanks to Swap-bot, I've gotten interested in ATCs, inchies, and altered books/notebooks!

I also love to cross-stitch--I guess because I can't draw pretty pictures, I get some satisfaction out of stitching them.

Favorite Books

Currently Reading: **The 7 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turtonl

Favorite book? I just love books period. If I could make a living by reading, I'd be in heaven! I'm a long time Stephen King fan. I enjoy several different genres, but I tend to lean toward fantasy-- alternate realities, dystopian societies, mythical creatures, etc. I'm not a big fan of westerns or nonfiction, though, especially not self-help. I'm in a book club that meets once a month.

Favorite Music

I like alternative music best. Alanis Morissette, Muse, Florence + the Machine, Hurts, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Sia, etc. But I also like 80's music, some Pop music (but not teen-agery music like Justin Bieber), classical sometimes, some hard rock. I'm not a fan of country music, but there are a few country songs I like.

Favorite Movies

Latest movie watched: Ready or Not

I love going to the movies. I just love the dark theater, the big screen, the loud sound, and the popcorn! I always go with my sister and husband. I prefer horror, action/adventure, thriller, mystery, sci-fi, and drama more than comedy and romantic. But I'll go see those as well. I also like foreign films and don't mind reading subtitles. Some of the best movies I've seen are foreign. I like some old movies, but I don't tend to be drawn to those.

Favorite Television

The TV keeps me company. I don't necessarily need to be watching it, but I like having it on. However, I do have several shows that I love.

The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Amazing Race, Vikings, NCIS, Big Bang Theory, This is Us, Doctor Who, The Great British Baking Show, and The Graham Norton Show--I know I'm leaving some out, but those are the ones that are on right now that I watch. Some shows that I love that have been or will soon be cancelled are Grimm, Fringe, Psych, Warehouse 13, Alphas, Longmire, Almost Human, Being Human, and Firefly.

bb2 rated for UHM: Make my Day #2: Envelopes 💌 on Jul 20, 2019
Comment: Thank you for the pretty pink envelopes. My favorite is the one with roses, but I like how you attached pictures on two others, also. What adhesive do you use for that? It is sticking really well without wrinkles.
Response: I'm glad you like them! I just used a regular glue stick, the kind that is purple and dries clear.

Comment: Anita, the card you sent me is so beautiful!! I will have a very hard time parting with it; it will have to be someone very special that will appreciate the creative energy that you put into it!

bb2 rated for CMF: Super Easy Polka-Dots Cards on Jul 5, 2019
Comment: Thank you for the super nice card. You embossed some of the dots? That and the highlights on the shooting star really dresses up this card. I appreciate the old-time b&w pictures too. I had 14 here for the 4th. We had a great time.
Response: I'm glad you liked it! Yes, I did emboss a few dots in silver, and the accent on the shooting star was done with a Wink of Stella pen (Hobby Lobby has them). I'm glad.you had a good 4th! Thanks for the heart!
