About Me

I have found many swaps to be fun, challenging and rewarding. Thank you to all those participating. You are creating a fun experience.

I always rate, usually the day I receive a swap. I hope others treat swaps received from me the same way. I usually mail very soon after partners are assigned, so if you haven't received the swap from me, PM me, I'll resend.
I have been collecting whales for over 40 years, one day I will see one in real life. We tried once but rain for three days didn't allow the day trip. I have traveled all the states except Alaska. Sewing is my passion for costumes for grandchildren or machine embroidery for fun and sometimes for pay. Joann Fabrics, Michael's and Hobby Lobby are my kind of toy store!

Favorite Television

Castle is a must see!! Now I am sad that the show has ended. :-(
Elementary, Criminal Minds, Scorpion, Big Bang Theory
NCIS and NCIS New Orleans, Mysteries at the Museum, Forensic Files and BBC Sherlock - is very very good!!

Favorite Crafts

Love to sew and do machine embroidery. I have a granddaughter with very specific ideas for costumes and decorating her clothing. She gives me challenges for sewing projects.

I enjoy new techniques in my sewing and love to make the Free Standing Lace Angels to give to everyone who visits. Would be happy to send those out in swap trades. I am trying to do some quilting or at least table runners. Missouri Quilts on Youtube is a great place to get tutorials.

I learned to make Microwave Fabric Bowls and went nuts making over 150 of them so far. Would love to trade those for other crafts I cannot do.

Counted Cross stitch is also a passion

Favorite Places to visit

I absolutely love to visit Mt Rushmore. Since 1963 it is the most visited spot ever for me and I find something new each time. One time my dog even went with me on my trips from Illinois to Montana. I have at least 6 pictures with my grandchildren standing in front of what I call "My Men!" I have over 100 postcards from that tourist place than any other and welcome more. I would go back to Europe in a heartbeat and revisit Castles and distant relatives in Switzerland.

New England historical sites are very much a fascination to me. The Whaling Museum is also on my bucket list.


I have been collecting post cards for years buying those instead of other souvenirs. I collect postcards from every place I visit. I put the date and who was with me on the back. I have boxes of them filed by states, countries and other themes. They can capture pictures that my camera cannot. I like city views, landmarks, country scenes, day and night themes, maps (state or country) and most any interesting pictures. I like the colorful pictures of places, map cards and information ones of places as well. I will trade animals or flowers if that is what is required in the swap. I would prefer touristy cards from places to see over the artsy or animal pictures with the exception for Whales - I collect all kinds of Whales. Postcard swaps with touristy or specific theme, but not animal or flowers. I like the places visited to inspire me to add to my bucket list.

Wishlist - State Maps-- AR,CT,DE,ID,IL,IN,KY,LA,MD,MI,NV,ND,OH,OK,SC,VT,WV

Dislikes or not into-- Tea or cocoa, rather have my Boyer's coffee made in Denver.
Make-up not allergic - just not into it, Color Orange, but I am trying (pumpkins are cute)

Sad to say dislikes or disappointments are the flakers and non-raters. I am getting my share.

Whatever you send I am sure I will like it, have a use for it, re-gift, or my granddaughter will do something creative with it.

If you do receive a swap from me, would you be so kind as to rate so that I know you received it. 😃

Wow! Two-and-a-half-hours spent just over Tucson? Did you get to see any of the surrounding desert/saguaro cacti (Sagauro National Park)? Sounds fascinating! :-)
