About Me

I always try to send swaps early but have had the misfortune of something getting lost in the mail. I want to be a dependable partner and welcome a message if something hasn't arrived when you think it should. I promise to resend as soon as possible.

I'm a retired RN with 5 children, 8 grandchildren and one great grandson who is growing up fast. I enjoy family get togethers, working on projects with friends and creating things.I read a lot but watch little TV.

Read mostly mysteries and some fav authors are James Patterson, John Sandford, Navada Barr and Earlene Fowler.

Favorite music is Classical, Christian and Country.

Favorite artwork is Vintage, Asian, Steampunk, Nature, Things with lots of color and just Black and white. Also enjoy embellishments and some glitter.

Dislike Occult,Nudes, Too cute, politics and very hot weather.

Favorite Crafts

I joined Swapbot for ATCs, inchies amd zentangles. In Delaware there isn't much interest in trading these things. I still love zentangle but my interest in paper crafts has really grown. I'm now making altered tags, zines, Postcards and other mail art. At my house most large cereal boxes turn into mixed media master boards and I have discovered the love of journals. I really enjoy Round Robin Journal swaps and find most partners put a lot of effort in every page.

I'd like to say something about extras. I do appreciate them but do not expect them nor do they influence ratings. I usually give a heart when someone puts a lot of thought and effort into a swap and always if I really like what is sent. I admit I do love getting Mini zines. I have a growing collection of them that started when one of my partners added one in with her swap. She also encouraged me to try one and finally I did.I got the courage to join a zine go round and am having so much fun adding to whatever has been started.

Comment: Thanks for my beautiful tile! I love how you tangled over the print. I keep all the cards you send me too! Thanks for the petty tangle on the front of your envie. I will add that one to my collection. It is really winter here with record lows and snow. I didn't tale a picture of my DH mowing the yard on New Year's Day, this year. LOL. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You are welcome! I appreciate your lovely comments as well as the heart. So far we have not had snow. My rose bush still has buds on it. Warmer than usual so far.That usually means we will have snow in March or April.

Thank you for the handmade star ornament RAK! Stars are some of my favorite shapes, so I'm going to hang it up all year. Happy New Year!

Hi Joan!

Wishing you a safe and happy first day of winter!

HAPPY WINTER!

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'"

I love working with zentangles! A side benefit its drawing and painting skills have greatly increased so my work is looking more as I imagine. I love swapping with such talented people as you! Soon again! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Thank you so much for the fun gelli prints. I don’t have enough discipline to make mine that cool. Love the mini-zines too for the OMAE Nov RAK Attcak.

Wow, Joan! I received your great box of quilting goodies today and am amazed by your generosity! That pink top is so sweet and the block pieces are awesome. I thank you, with all my heart, for everything!
