About Me

*** If we were in a swap together, and I haven't rated you, please let me know. I don't want to miss anyone....

Born to craft, I've been doing all sorts of different types for over 50 years now :) I tend to go through phases of the type I like to do.

I currently design and sell digital scrapbooking supplies, although I am moving more toward other crafts right now.

I've written, submitted, and then had published, 1 craft book on beaded earrings, by Plaid Enterprises.

HEY... I just found it online... my bead book.. it's pretty old, and has been out of print for some time now, but I guess someone bought up the leftovers and has them for sale.... I am just thrilled to be able to show it...


I am married to a wonderful man, and have a wonderful son (in reverse order...lol). I live in the desert, and HATE the heat. I recently discovered RVing... LOVE it!!!

I do genealogy, and am hoping to expand on my photography.

The computer is my favorite pastime :) I use it for EVERYTHING... looking up "how-to's", doing my genealogy, researching info on just about anything.

Favorite Music

Country Music... love Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, lots more.

Favorite Television

gosh... I am a TV buff!

My favs... Amazing Race, and Big Brother. Lost WAS one of my favs, but the last season was so disappointing!

Love the CSI's, NCIS, Ghost Whisperer, Medium, Desperate Housewives, Mercy, Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds, Army Wives, The Good Wife, Brothers and Sisters.

Favorite Crafts

Right now my very favorite craft is card-making and other related paper crafts.

I am quite good at crocheting, I LOVE making the doilies especially. Would like to make Chemo Caps this summer while RVing.

I sew, scrapbook, some tole painting, simple wood-work, beading, most of which comes in handy for card-making.

Hi, there... I was your partner in the "NEWBIE SURPRISE PROFILE SWAP U,S, Only" swap, and I sent out to you several weeks ago...I just wondered if you would be so kind as to take just a moment to rate me, so I will know it arrived to you safe and sound... In case it got misplaced or attributed to someone else, it contained some vintage-style 1940's/1950's blank funny recipe cards, along with some scrapbooking supplies, etc...

Thanks so much! Hope your week is going well.. --Your swap pal, Sandi--
