Favorite Crafts

I am a Cardmaker. I create all occasion greeting cards. My favorites are rose cards and funky folded cards. I use many techniques to design my cards. This year is my glitzy year,gems,jewels and bling! I also enjoy paper crafts.


My favorite theatre is musicals. Singing and dancing thrill me! When I lived near Chicago I went to see the Joffrey Ballet. Ballet is my favorite dance. Wish I can dance like them!

Favorite Television

My favorite TV is Dancing with the Stars! Also I like,Scandal, Grey's Anatomy and several comedy sitcoms. HGTV - craft shows - are also fun to watch.

About Me

I'm an outgoing,crafty,fun loving,Christian woman. I am married and a mom of three young adult children.I was fortunate to be a stay at home mom,for a while, then the economy tanked and I went to work part time. Now I have all the leisure time I want and need because I am retired!
I am very organized and my husband hates when I organize his "stuff" Of course, I know where it all is. LOL!! I am lifetime member of the Girl Scouts USA. Now I volunteer strategically,when I can. I am a city girl with a hint of country. God has blessed me with new friends. Al, my husband, and I love to travel. We really like the Caribbean and cruising. I keep a journal and scrapbook our pictures. Lots of memories! We like to eat out because after cooking for many years I'll let them cook for me! Besides the Italians, Mexican, Chinese and Pizza restaurants do a great job. My new "job" is a restaurant researcher! *** Birthdays are a big deal to me. We celebrate with family, friends, fun and FOOD - Eat Cake!


Playing bunco, a dice game, is fun! About 12 to 20 women get together for a pot luck dinner and then Bunco begins! I play a mean game of pinochle.I enjoy a challenge when we play double deck pinochle. Also, I like to play board games. Our area, where we live, is big on Trivia Nights. Some questions are too tough. I surprise myself and come up with some correct answers. I do Jumble word puzzles when I travel or am sitting at the pool.

Favorite Colors

My favorite color is blue, any hue.
Of course I like red for the holidays, green for St. Patrick's Day, yellow in my kitchen, turquoise in the laundry room, brown for the fall,purple for early spring and oak wood.

Thing I'd rather not receive.

Comment: What a beautiful pocket letter! We went on our first cruise last year and loved it so much that my PL for this swap was also cruise-themed! I love the traveler's prayer and will be tucking it into my passport. Thanks so much--I feel lucky to be the recipient of this swap from you!
Comment: Fabulously cute piece of art! Thank you!!

candysue511 rated for Fill My Stocking - December on Dec 28, 2017
Comment: I rated a 5, in the spirit of Christmas. I would like to point out that the swap was all about a wrapped stocking stuffer. Putting the stocking stuffer inside of an envelope, meant for a card that you made, is not a wrapped gift. You wrote all about me giving the card to someone else. So, how is putting the stocking stuffer in the same envelope count as a wrapped gift? In the scope of the season and all, it doesn't matter. In following the swap instructions, I guess that it mattered. What if I had wanted to put that supposed to be wrapped gift in my actual stocking?
Response: Sorry for the confusion! Happy New Year!
Comment: Thank you for the December ATC and the handmade card. Happy Holidays.
