About Me

I'm a silver aged (60+) wife/mother/grandmother, and I live in central Florida. I'm a 7th generation Floridian, and have been married for 47 years.

I'm retired, and since I married way too young (16), I've reverted back to a teenager. I am always looking for something new to keep myself busy (and to avoid as much housework as possible, lol).

I enjoy being outside amongst my live oak trees, watching the squirrels chase each other & working with my plants (repotting & propagating).

My favorite color is yellow first, then rainbow colors.

I have several favorite animals: cats (primarily, because I have the personality of a cat), horses, various birds (such as the titmouse, cardinals & house wrens), dragonflies & butterflies.

I'm highly into metaphysical matters (eg: spiritual enlightenment, paranormal investigations, esp, etc). And, yes, I believe in faeries, dragons, unicorns, pegusus & ETs..

Occupations

I've worked in the medical field for 20 years. Also worked retail, hospitality, customer service, and even several years as a Renaisance Fair serving wench (mmm, I really miss the pirates).

Favorite Books

I love reading historical romance novels, mainly time-travel & highlanders. Hannah Howell & Christine Feehan are two of my favorite authors. I love reading at bedtime, especially after a rough day. That's one of my favorite ways to escape reality.

Favorite Music

I enjoy listening to various kinds of music: celtic, esoteric, 60s/70s/80s rock, motown, and anything by Alabama.

Favorite Movies

Some of my favorite movies are Everafter, Divine Secrets of the Yaya Sisterhood, Avatar, Pearl Harbor, Titanic, Happyfeet, Out On A Limb. In SciFi flixs: Star Wars (episodes 4,5 & 6), Lord of the Rings, Star Trek (the newer movies) and 2012. At times, I like a good disaster flick, such as Deep Impact, Day After Tomorrow, Independence Day, Dante's Peak, etc.

Favorite Crafts

I love crafts that intrigue me, such as hypertufa (cement) planters, dirty pour acrylic painting, paper-crafting, bead work, machine embroidery, light sewing, etc.

Additional

Unless there's a nature picture on TV, I perfer watching a tutorial on YouTube. I'm always looking to learn something new.

I also highly enjoy driving & roadtrips. Nascar is the only sport I'll watch. I was heavily into the #3 Intimidator, Dale Earnhardt Sr. (RIP).

My favorite food is Cantonese.

The teas I like: Chia, Earl Grey, Red Zinger, Orange Pekoe. (I have an ALLERGY to Chamomile).

Dislikes

I dislike propaganda. Please do not send anything religious, political, or sports (other than Nascar) related.

I don't care for quilting, heavy sewing projects or yarn work. But give me a fat quarter or some yarn scraps & I'll make something funky out of it. I'm just crazy that way. :)

For tea swaps, PLEASE do not send Chamomile. I have an allergy to it. Thank you.

Just so you know....

If you're one of those wonderful people who make their own envelopes, don't be surprised if you get one of yours back with another swap. I believe in recycling. Unless it's one of those gems that I can't part with. I get very protective of my treasures (must be the dragon in me, lol). And if you don't see me in an international swap, it's not because I'm being picky. I'm on a limited budget, so I have to watch my postage. Sometimes I find a wonderful swap, sign up, then realize it's not regional, so I have to drop out. You may notice that my stuff is not high quality. Having to do on the cheap doesn't allow for all the pretty & nifty equipment. So, I do what I can, until I get myself stocked up (bit by bit).

Comment: Love the card and the way the kitty is staring up at the butterfly, very creative! Reminds me of a story: we had a black & white tuxedo who used to come in from the backyard with black smudges on his cheeks and we couldn't figure out where the smudges were coming from. Until the day he came in with a big Monarch butterfly in his mouth and the wings were "flapping" against his cheeks. We had our own butterfly serial killer! Thank you!

Comment: Thank you for the great ATC! Mine was similar but I used bigger squares of paper, which I'm sure was much easier than using fabric.

Comment: Thank you for the 2 pendants! Don’t feel bad about what you made; we’re all beginners sometime and plus that dragon one is especially cool. I haven’t used air dry clay before, and I’m curious what happens when you incorporate air dry with polymer in a design...I may experiment!

Paper Manipulators "Getting to Know You"

It was interesting reading through your profile. I have to say though, I used to read during bedtime, but it always put me to sleep lol. It was nice getting to know you.

paperlovely on Apr 2, 2018:

Hello, very nice to meet you - I'm really excited to be a part of this new paper crafting group. I actually think I've sent you something, or maybe you sent me something - either way I remember reading your profile before. I just recently discovered the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon - I've seen all of the TV seasons and just finished book one. I have become a bit obsessed! I don't know many others who are watching or reading so if you like those too, maybe we can chat about it :) l look forward to getting to know you better!

Hi! I'm excited to be a part of this new paper crafting group with you. I just love making new things with paper and being creative. You sound like a very interesting and creative person. You certainly have experienced many different things in your life. (The pirates! Hahaha!) I also love nature and birdwatching like you. I like to watch the blue jays in my area (Canada) I don't know if you have them in Florida. I have only been to Florida once, and I must say it was FAR too hot for me. Just not used to it! Haha. Can't wait to swap with you in our new group. For: getting to know you--Addicted to Paper group.

Dragongrrl on Apr 1, 2018:

Hi Cathy! I saw we have a lot of similar interests, I also love dragons and cryptozoology, for lack of a better term for all of it! Working at the Renaissance fair must have been fun! Can't wait to swap with you!

For: getting to know you
