Hi! My name is Pam! My husband's name is Doug, and we have three children, all girls! Our oldest daughter is Holly, single and with a significant other, Heidi our middle child who is married and has our only grandchild, J.A. and Sara, our youngest, who also has a significant other in her life!
I'm a retired school teacher. I taught Kindergarten for 18 years and then was promoted to 6th grade for the next 16 years! I loved my job and I miss my co-workers and former students! We keep in touch via FB!
I do believe that "Card Making" is my favorite craft! I love the idea of sharing my talents with family and friends! I have never participated in a swap before, but I am so excited about the Valentine Swap and the Old Picture Postcard Swap that I have signed up for. I know that I will enjoy working on my creations!!!
Other crafts that I am interested in are: Counted Cross Stitch, Crocheting, Crafts for Kids, and probably anything that involves "Doodling" or just "Creative Inspiration"!
I am also addicted to the computer! I enjoy FB, Words with Friends, and similar fun types of games! I also like exploring the different websites that deal with interests that appeal to me! Usually that includes anything dealing with crafts, new ideas or anything "clean and innocent"!!!
Baking is another hobby I have! I love to try out new recipes and I never fail to have someone around to try them out on!!! Some recipes I call "keepers" and then there are the "others" (like "stinky potatoes" which my daughters hated) and laugh and still remind me about!!! Bars, candy, cookies, and cakes are my specialties! Especially at Christmas and Valentine's Day!!!
Usually during the spring and fall, most people will find me busy in the kitchen. Always baking but also adding meals to the responsibilities of a "farmer's wife"!!! When I was a kid, we delivered meals and snacks and lunches to the field all the time. I loved it and thought it was so much fun. I still do the "meals on wheels" during our busy seasons. It probably isn't my favorite activity, but we still enjoy the makings anyhow!!! Plus it is nice for family members and those helping us out in the field to have a distraction once in a while!!! So "Meals on Wheels" is still part of my agenda for certain days and certain seasons!!! Good thing I love my husband and kids ... Or I would have retired from that also!!!
Since retiring, I just am enjoying life. Once in a while I substitute teach at our local school, work and sub in our Public Library or just enjoy traveling with my husband for parts, or checking out different ideas that the two of us come up with. He likes a traveling mate and I enjoy getting out!
I was asked about applying for our library position when it opened up, but I said "no" to the opportunity! For years, as a teacher I taught all through the fall, winter, and spring months. It wasn't so bad during the fall and spring because my husband was busy also. But when he had time off in the winter ... what was I doing... working! So needless to say, I decided against working full time at our public library. However I do enjoy subbing there once in a while!
And hopefully sometime in the winter, one of these days when our kids are finally out on their own, maybe we will do some traveling of our own and see the "warmer sights" of the world in the winter time. Snowy, below zero weather is not for me!!!
Enough about me! I am so looking forward to being a part of this group. So who knows ... maybe u will be my first swap of many more to come!!! Thrilled to be a part of the "swap-bot"!!!
