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 and 8 grandchildren and one great grandson who just turned 1 this month. 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

Been on swapbot 5 years this month so think I'll update a little. I joined 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. This year I got the courage to join a zine go round and am having so much fun adding to whatever has been started.

Comment: Love all the envelopes! The tiny ones are perfect for my journal. I also like to tuck little things/notes on my journal pages. I must ask....did you paint/ink the designs on your smaller ones? They're really pretty, especially the purple! I love purple!! Thanks for such an awesome envelope assortment!
Response: You are welcome! The small envelopes are made with scraps of papers made with my gelli plate. I like small envelopes for journals too so glad you liked them. Thanks for your nice comments and the heart.

Comment: beautiful paper doll! and the envelope was decorated so beautifully! what a great package to receive! I had to do a little research to see what swap it was for as you did not mark it anywhere. I plan to glue your return address label to the back of her so I can remember that you made her! thanks!
Response: You are welcome. Sorry about not marking the swap, I do try to do that. Glad you liked her, I was happy to be sending her to someone who loves mermaids.
