About Me

Hello.... greeting the Pacific North West! Born in Boston though - Boston Proud.... I am so excited about beginning this wonderful swap-bot experience. 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 20 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).

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 fat craft session. I have 2 living Children, Ashley-29 and Chelsea-27, my son Joshua passed away Sept 11, 2010 at 25, we are blessed with a lifetime of laughter and love from the short time we had with him. That loss does not define me, in fact it has made me a better person and I know he would be proud of the person I am.

I love to walk and swim. Camping and walking on the beach.I have a great sense of humor and love to do random acts of kindness and putting a smiles on faces....... and ice cream cones, dipped in chocolate of course - I love that crunchy stuff!!!

Favorite Music

What would the world be without music..... right now my playlist has on it... Rihanna's "Love on the brain", Adel's "Hello" - Well all of Adel,
Mumford and Son, Macy Gray, Journey, Duffy, Chicago, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Train, Beetles, Tracy Chapman, well I could go on and on. I'm kinda an eclectic person of sorts and it translates in my music, reading and crafts!!

Favorite Books

YUP ...I love to read and belong to a book club. What fun it is and it broadens my reading (I won't lie though some of the selections make me wonder... just who is this person). I like easy reading but don't object trying something new. Some books on my shelf.... Girl on the Train, Winter Garden, A Man Called Ove

again very eclectic. I love bookstores - older ones more so and libraries and the feel of a good book in my hands - seriously I like turning pages - but I confess I do have electronic ones too - purely for when I have field trips on the bus......

Favorite Movies

AND.... I love movies & go to movies. Some of my favorites, Pride and Prejudice The Help, Nims Island, Eight Below, Marvel movies - Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Forrest Gump, The Princess Bride, I like based on true life uplifting movies, Not good with scary, scary movies. No Saw or Geepers Creaper ............Yikes!!!!

Favorite Crafts

Hmmmm - there just isn't enough time or ones attention span to really do my crafting justice...!! So let me just say ........ I ....L O V E ..... Paper and all paper crafts but have have been seen doing - Knitting, Crochet, beading, Cross stitch - But mostly I'm hooked on paper crafts. I do scrapbooking, junk journaling, making my own envelopes, and a love of all things ATC's. Just found out about Inchies and Twinchies, I mean REALLY Inchies and Twinchies.......

I do want to say AGAIN if for some reason you don't receive something from me please let me know I would love to do it again (I'm pretty big on the thought of resends for you should that happen), please contact me - it's sad not getting a little something in the mail when your expecting a little something, right?!

About PC's. My favorites are the artistic kind, black& white, black & white with color accents, unusual and unique - because honestly I truly have a lot of tourist type cards, ...... well 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 collect playing cards, there are some beautiful,wacky and funny ones out there and some of the older ones - fabulous...... crazy, I don't know why, but, there you have it. I would love the 5 of hearts, but anything would be awesome -lol- they have been know to just make my day. I'm crazy I know this... lol

No Thank you

Anything Political, religious and althoughI like the wacky and unusual no nudity or vulgar please.

things I love....

I LOVE Coca-Cola, and coke art, American Flags (vintage & country best), PC,s, Stationary and notecards, die cuts, Daisy and Sunflowers, Watermelon, Owls, ladybugs, elephants and giraffes, Ribbon and lace, Journals - bullet and junk journals calligraphy - Fountain pens, ATC's, Vintage, photography, paper craft embellishments, playing cards (see above lol), zentangle, beautiful paper, fashion, bookmarks, beautiful stickers (might I add, that since I am a bus driver perhaps no kids or teacher types stickers would be nice - I have a pretty good selection)

truly I just plain love seeing the little treasure people send me hidden in all shapes and sizes of envelopes that await me in the mailbox..... that does not mean little extras - it means YOUR work!

favorite colors

Warmer earth tone greens, purples like eggplant and deap lilac, yellows like mustard, oranges like pumpkin and corals and usually do a lot of black accents

Love red, white and blue - purple, greens and yellow or brown with pink or blue or green combinations are pretty too

feels weird saying that about colors but others have done so and well I like following the trend too -I lie, I'm really a rebel kinda gal...still taking about colors seems .... well lets just say its new to me... I told you I'm crazy

About Me

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...

Comment: Hello Kerin :-) . . . . Your new starter Zine is so Cool, I love it, and especially love the way you designed the back page. I look forward to adding my work and passing it on in Round 2. . . . . Thank you so much for saying such sweet comments for me. I would adore having you for a close neighbor and seeing what I know must be the warm smile on your face that you greet people with. We could plan little pot-luck crafting evenings. I've always longed for a crafty, fun neighbor. And, I thank you very much for including all the wonderful, thoughtful, and interesting gifts. I hope I'll get to send you swap mail someday. ♥ ☺

Hi Kerin, It is cold and raining here in Livingston Texas and I am very ready for spring to come! I love the outdoors too. Taking walks and just sitting outside on the porch with a good book is great! I hope that you have a wonderful day! Happy Swapping.
