Eclipse 2017 was awesome where I live!!! I will never ever forget it! Can't explain the wonderfully strange feeling I got during 99% eclipse. The shadows were strange and despite not having glasses it was so awesome to spend the time with my sweet husband of 36 years (our anniversary day after eclipse was hazy) It was an unusually sunny morning, first one in days, we were so lucky!! He used binoculars and simple props to film the different stages of the eclipse with shadow. Hubby made a video and unfortunately his camera memory ran out before he could get the weird shadowing on the side of our house. He's going to help me make a video of my footage. It was so EPIC!
PLEASE kindly remember to rate me. I always send my swaps and try to send something my partner would like. I love reading your profiles! I always send my swaps, rate for swaps received and communicate with my partners. Please do the same! I live in a metro city so I try to send swaps at the same time so I have less trips to the post office. Oftentimes I mail swaps in the evening or weekends. The lobby is not open 24/7 at my post office and pick up times are not as often as they use to be, but when I click I mailed, I have actually mailed! Please keep that in mind. Thank you.
I have tried a lot of art and crafts in my life. While I am no expert I do have an eclectic style and appreciation of art in many forms. Handmade is always appreciated and treasured.
September 2018...We just got a Hobby Lobby in our area a few months ago! About time, lol!
My newest obsession are Julie Nutting Paper Dolls, I love them! I bought my first stamp in 2013 after a class and didn't do much with the dolls until 2015. I own almost the entire collection and met Julie herself in June 2016 at a retreat. So awesome! I hope to attend another class with her someday.
