About Me

2-time breast cancer survivor that discovered paper crafts and gardening during my recoveries. Enjoying being a grandmother and taking lots of pictures to create layouts and mini-albums.

Live in South Florida and enjoy all the seasons (LOL) except summer. Been through enough hurricanes thank you!

Would like to travel more. LOVE going on cruises. Princess & RCL rock.

Favorite Music

I LOVE classic rock. I grew up on the Beatles, Stones & Led Zepplin. I like "new age" music to relax, meditate or do yoga to.

Favorite Books

I love history. Especially Tudor history. I like gardening books. I read The Founding Gardeners by Andrea Wulf. It was about Washington, Jefferson & Madison and how gardening was a major factor in the building of our country. Yes, I've read all the Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey books. Nice to have a little mindless dribble every now & then.

Favorite Movies

I don't have a favorite per se, but there are movies that I will watch over & over. Love Gone With The Wind, The Big Year, any John Hughes movie from the 80s. Hate slasher flicks.

Favorite Television

Food Network addict. Like the Smithsonian & History channel. LOVE Homeland, Games of Thrones & The Newsroom. I do watch the Vampire Diaries-- hey Ian Sommerholder :)

Favorite Crafts

Playing with my Cricut and Sizzix Big Shot. I like to make cards, mini albums, acrylic albums, layouts & ATCs. I love to garden. Living in south FL, we have a great growing season for veggies while the rest of the country is freezing. I like to bake. Especially during Christmas.

Likes/Dislikes

Likes:

Colors-- I'm not picky. Love patterned paper. The funkier the better.

Disney- Frozen, Mickey or Minnie. My granddaughter loves them.

Anything to do with nature (birds, flowers, butterflies, etc.), animals, Christmas, Halloween (no gross or gory), Vintage, Steampunk or Tim Holtz.

Paper- really love Graphic 45, My Mind's Eye, Authentique , Tim Holtz & Bo Bunny

Bling, pearl, metal, ribbon and flower embellishments

Embossing folders, powders & stamp pads

Sizzix dies

DISLIKES:

I WOULD PREFER ITEMS FROM A NON-SMOKER. I RECENTLY THREW AWAY A BEAUTIFUL SWAP PACKAGE BECAUSE IT REEKED.

I'VE HAD CANCER TWICE AND REALLY DON'T WANT TO SMELL OR BREATHE SMOKE 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th HAND.

I don't like gory Halloween/slasher stuff.

Other:

I reuse envelopes and packaging. Try to recycle whenever I can.

I not longer participate in International swaps due to the costs. :(

Please contact me if you don't get my swap. I've noticed some issues lately with the mail both sending and receiving. Any questions, feel free to message me.

A special thank you for all the nice, cool, awesome, interesting, unique, and on and on, LoL. You were so very generous and I really thank you for all the nice items/papers @BeverlyGray sent me. I can't wait to use some of them. There is no doubt they will all probably be used for ATCs, my most favorite paper craft to do. God Bless...........=0)
