About Me

I am a retired office manager and private secretary of a large electronics servicer in the Seattle area. I have four great children and two granddaughters. My two daughters are my best friends and we do a lot of fun things together and have zany birthday themes with lots of games and prizes. I've been making and sending cards to friends and family for many years and it is one of my favorite hobbies. I love doing personal cards for people with special embellishments for each occasion. I make my own envelopes and like to coordinate the colors and shapes. I like lots of good books, TV, music and e-mailing. I love writing letters to friends and to soldiers. I've received some nice answers from some stationed in various countries..I also like the sunshine, gardening, holiday decorating, scrapbooking and enjoying my family, friends, home, and patio..

Favorite Music

I listen to jazz most of the day on my computer, but like classical, 'moldie oldies,' boogie, big band, blues, some country, easy rock and just about everything except rap.

Favorite Books

I read all kinds of books...mysteries, romance, biographies, and usually have a stack of them from the local library.

Pets

I have an all black kitty name Pi and she is my constant buddy. I've always adopted all of my kids' pets over the years and she is the last one!

Favorite Television

I like documentaries, The History and Discovery Channel.Seinfeld, Jeopardy, all the CSI shows, Alias, , NCIS, British cop shows, major league baseball, football and a lot of PBS and Masterpiece Theatre programs, Discovery, The Learning Channel, etc. I rarely watch daytime TV.

Things I like

Things I don't really care for: Smoke tainted articles, Gothic skulls, etc.

About Me

Things I like: Old postage stamps, stationery, colorful note cards, stickers, colorful shaped brads, beads, pens, little animals, rocks, tins, post cards. Chocolate, sugarless gum, mints, ribbons, cardstock scraps and papers, trinkets, card trims, embellishments of all kinds, and anything that adds to my card making fun.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely card, Ruth Anne. Sadly, the message inside the card could not be read as the envie and card got wet somewhere along it's travels. UPDATE: I received your second card today, and it was stunning! Thank you so, so much! You really did not need to do that, but I appreciate your going above and beyond to replace the damaged card <3
Response: Ooohh! I'm really sorry it got wet in the mail. I'll send out another soon, so watch for it!

Comment: ♥ ♥ Wow, what an amazing tea swap! I can't believe how gorgeous your hand-stitched card and envelope are! And I love the eyelets...reminds me that I should pull mine out, haha. I look forward to trying the selection of teas you've sent, too. ♥ ♥
Response: I'm so happy you liked it and hope there was no postage due, as one came back. If so, let me know and I'll send it to you. I had fun making the tea cards and it was something that just popped up suddenly. I also don't use my eyelets often enough, but they're great for making Christmas tags. I received some nice teas, too, and am anxious to use that excuse to just sit down and read and be cozy. Iit's so much fun to be swapping again!
