UPDATE: October 2012 We moved from our home of 17 years December 2011. Yes, my address is correct.:) Thought it was time to update my profile since I'm swapping again. It's been a wild ride, but now we call a new place our home. We love it here!
Beware of spoilers on Flickr! I put photos up of my swaps!
PLEASE kindly remember to rate me. I always send my swaps and try to send something my partner would like, something I would be happy to receive myself. Most times I drop mail off on my way to get my husband after work as he rides the train. I am more than fair with my sending swap partners . I will make an attempt to communicate with you if something goes wrong before I rate. If you have no intention of sending your swap or make it right, please don't expect a fair rating! Things do get lost in the mail and life happens. I understand. JUST COMMUNICATE with me! I don't bite unless you do first! :)
I live with my husband of 31 years and our two cats, Oni and Yuki. We are empty nesters after 30 years! I love my family and enjoy spending time with our 3 grown children when we can. I'm a Nana of two beautiful little grand daughters! As a family we enjoy food and cooking, playing Rock Band and Aion and exploring new places both outdoors and for good eats. Enjoy cooking especially good at baking pies. If you have a fave dinner/main dish recipe that is healthy and quick I'd love for you to share it with me. I enjoy reading, but don't have favorite authors. I enjoy autobiographies, short stories, (including mysteries) and lots of art and craft books and cook books. Love music and dance of all kinds. Not fond of country music although I love Johnny Cash! Did I say I have a sweet tooth? I love milk chocolate and raspberry flavored candies.
I enjoy exploring new techniques and working with mixed mediums, rubber stamping (have a huge collection) watercolor, drawing and have scrapbooks to finish. (got a little burnt out) I've been sewing since I was ten. I learned the love of sewing from my Mom. She was a very creative person and must have gotten that creative gene from her. Thank you Mom! You are still my angel and I miss you.
The next paragraph I am leaving here to remind me of my old home. It makes me smile when I read it.....We all love the great outdoors. Including vegetable and flower gardening. How can you live in Oregon and not love it here? It's natural beauty is something to behold. Wildlife pass through our country home including deer, raccoon, skunks (not so much fun!), possum, wild rabbits, and various birds including owls, hawks, geese and wild turkeys. At night time we can hear the coyotes howling in the nearby hills. Awesome!
