H e l l o.... greetings from the beautiful Pacific North West! Born in Boston though - Boston Proud. I’m the daughter of an Army Pilot so I traveled when I was young. I've been "crafty" all my life. My interests are varied. I was a stay at home mom until all my children were in grade school. In order to have the same schedule as my children I became a school bus driver, and 23 years later I'm still sitting in the drivers seat - Oh boy the stories I could tell! No really....... kids say the darnedest things (if their parents only knew - sometimes I have to try not to bust out laughing when I see them, these little ones are so innocent - it's delightful). A fellow driver and are are the current Washington State Special Needs Rodeo champs on our way to Nationals in Texas...... I love my job and my students.
I used to teach Kindergarten before staying home with my fabulous children which was a perfect fit for me because kindergarten is education disguised in one big craft session. I have 2 living Children, Ashley-32 who blessed us with a grandson, Chelsea-30 who loves to travel and my son Joshua passed away on Sept 11, 2010 at 25, we are blessed with a lifetime of love, laughter and amazing memories of our time with him.
I love long walks, swimming, entertaining friends, ice cream cones dipped in chocolate, who doesn’t like that crunchy stuff and random acts of art kindness.
I ....L O V E ..... paper and all paper crafts but have have been seen doing - knitting, crochet and of recent art classes on ZOOM. I Zentangle and recently became Certified Zentangle Teacher. But mostly I'm hooked on paper crafts. I love making my own envelopes, and a love of all things ATC's and JAMS (so anything in 3’s are awesome). . I am just learning watercolor and just just found out about Inchies and Twinchies, I mean REALLY Inchies and Twinchies.......
I do want to say if for some reason you don't receive something from me please let me know, if you haven't I would love to do it again. Please contact me - it's sad not getting a little something in the mail when your expecting it, right?!
I also collect playing cards, there are some beautiful, wacky and funny ones out there and some of the older ones - fabulous.... I would love any J of ❤️‘s if you have one (it's kinda a sentimental reason - in memory of my son Joshua, he was my heart.... thus the J❤️ - he was also a bit of a jokester too so Jokers are pretty darn awesome also) it is a delightful collection...
About PC's. My favorites are the artistic kind, black& white, black & white with color accents, unusual and unique - send me something you'd like yourself and then tell me a little bit about you.. your profession, dreams, passions, what you love about your culture and I love quotes. I just love receiving them so just have fun picking it. I also send postcards through Postcrossing a wonderful and exciting community of postcard lovers around the world - check it out!!

Well that about does it for now... thank you for forging through my profile, I'm bit of a talker and that translate to talking with my hands as well as in my writing too!!!! I love swap-botting and I feel like our swaps are like little acts of kindness toward each other and the connection one feels from them is... well... sort of magical...
