About Me

Patience Please Since Tinypic is no longer a hosting option for my photos, I am in process of switching to another host. This is not as easy of a process as I thought it would be. I'll get it done as soon as I can.

Hubby and I work together as cottage parents with at-risk kids. We work specifically with middle school-aged boys and love it!

Our own children are grown. Our oldest, a wonderful daughter teaches pre-school.

Our youngest, a son, has two children of his own both with August birthdays like hubby and I.


Valuable: My Christian faith

Color: purple

beverage: Cherry Pepsi

person: my amazing husband

Bible book: James

flower: daisy

Candy: Bottlecaps & Spree

School Subject: English (I taught for several years.)

Book Character: Curious George

Snack Foods: Twinkies or Popcorn

Music: Southern Gospel & Contemporary Christian

Television: Law & Order (all versions)
And I must confess to being a reality tv junkie!

Odds & Ends: magnets, dog treats, fuzzy socks,

Random Weirdness about me.

I am allergic to chocolate.

I have arthritis, lupus and fibromyalgia which slows me down, but doesn't stop me.

I grew up in the north, but now live in Florida. And we moved down here to take a job, not to retire.

Candles burning in my house makes me happy.

I LOVE to rearrange furniture; it tortures me to leave it for more than a month or two at a time.

I really do NOT understand the Kawaii craze.

I'm allergic to mushrooms.

Birds creep me out. Seriously, they terrify me.

I'm addicted to my planner even though I keep changing the page design I use.

I had never seen washi until I discovered Swap-Bot.

Things I would love to receive

*Fabric of any size, shape, color, style, or pattern. I am obsessed with quilting and fabric crafting. Some of my favorites are polka dots, purples, and plaids. Any dog-related or American patriotic fabric is also awesome!

*Sewing supplies like thread, pins, quilt batting, interfacing, buttons, and any other sewing items you have but will never use. Even open, partial packages are such a sweet blessing to receive.

*Air Force or patriotic items - anything!

*Grandma items as I became a "Gammaw" in August 2015 and a second time in August 2018. *Washi Tape, actually any deco/art tape. This is a new addiction since joining Swap Bot. How did I not know about this amazing stuff before??? LOVE IT!!

*Anything Curious George. A few years ago for our anniversary my hubby bought me a large hardbound book with several Curious George stories bound together. Best gift ever!

Things I prefer NOT to receive

I really hate to have this section, but with my medical history I must.

Please nothing scented. This includes perfumes, lotions, anything! My lupus makes me extremely sensitive to smell. What seems pleasant and mild to you could cause me problems. Candles with a fruity or nature scent are great. If they are too strong for me, my daughter loves to steal them from me.

For the same reason, please do not send anything with smoke or mildew residue or smell. I had a serious reaction not long ago.

Due to a recent medical diagnosis, I am no longer allowed to drink any coffee or tea so I would prefer not to receive these.

And on the weird side, I am allergic to chocolate so I may be the only woman on the planet who would not like to receive chocolate.

I am a Christian so I prefer not to receive anything that is in opposition to my faith. But don't worry, if you do, forgive and move forward is my motto.

My Craftiness

My first love is quilting. I love the creativeness and variety that comes with this great art form.

I also love sewing items like Bible covers, pillows, curtains, mug rugs, pot holders, tote bags, and other little surprises for my friends and the kids we work with.

I am a beginner at paper crafting, but I am liking the fun of creating my own cards to share. I have always loved sending cards, and creating my own is so much fun!


Comment: This is a fantastic PC! Your choice of embellishments is great & I love your creative use of the tape. Thank you for being my partner.
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I was so nervous about the embellishments staying on so I actually laminated it. Glad it made it safely.
Comment: Thanks so much for the PC of Jesus laughing dated 1977 which was the year my first son was born The lovely bible verse Deuteronomy 6:15 I do love the Lord my God with all of my heart soul and strength!
Response: My aunt gave me a giant pile of those pcs many years ago. I just love them! She gave us a large matted and framed one as a wedding present.

TCHH SCRIPTURE PROFILE--ACTS ACTS 4:12 And in none other is there salvation; for there is no other name under the heaven, that has been given among men, by which we must be saved. ACTS 19:20 So the word of the Lord was growing mightily and prevailing. ACTS 2:42-43 ISH They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. I like the verses that have to do with growth and growing closer to the Lord on a daily basis. I hope you enjoy these verses Have a great day, Alaina Circle b farms 10
