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.

Many thanks for the lovey OMAE Affirmative Tag! I love it and indeed do have two cats as part of my family... One handsome tuxedo and a fluffy brown mackerel torbie girl. They own us, to be honest! Your tangled card is gorgeous and the envelope colors are my faves. Happy summer, Carroll

Thank you so much for the OMAE: MMH Arty Envelope Tag. I was hoping you'd do outer space. The envelope makes me so happy. I love the little astronauts. It's a good thing the aliens seem friendly! LOL!

Hi Joan!

Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day!

Mother is an undying love, a love beyond compare, the one you take your troubles to, she is the one who really cares. You are all of this and more. So glad we’re moms, it’s one more sweet thing to share.

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne
