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: I love this!! It's definitely going to go on the wall. I've seen that pattern on the stem, but I don't remember the name of it, either. I used it a couple of times, so maybe it's in my book. I'll look and see if I can find it. Now, it's bugging me! LOL!!
Response: I've been using it for a long time and I know I didn't invent it so let me know if you find it. Glad you liked the apple. Thanks for your nice comments and the heart.

Comment: I received your new Round 1 A&P Tangle PC a couple of days ago. So sorry it was buried temporarily in a pile and not rated ASAP. I really like the pattern you chose! I haven't seen that one before (or don't remember seeing it). I will use this pattern on one of the rounds.
Response: Not a problem, thanks for your rating and the heart.
