About me...

Hi, and welcome to my page...😉

3rd March 2018:
Please excuse me and my absence at this time. I’m in a bit of a dark space presently and find it easier to close off.
Please message me if you think I have missed sending or rating, the time just goes before I know it. As of this day, everything is up to date.
Hope to catch you soon, cheers! 🙏

5th FEB 2018:
Because of the blood infection, Dad has had a nursing medic make a visit to his home daily over the last four weeks (one to go), to administer and monitor his 24/7 antibiotics. So far so good.
It’s been an exhausting last 12 months...let’s hope nothing else pops up.

15th JANUARY 2018:
Dad finished his hyperbaric treatment just over a week ago. Was home for a day, and now is a patient in St John of God Hospital. He has some sort of blood infection from unknown causes, tests being done...it’s been a rough few months, and continues.

Just to top all that off, my Dads brother, Uncle Jim, was put in the same hospital on Friday 12th Jan, unbeknownst to my Dad. Sadly my Uncle Jim passed away on Saturday 13th Jan 2018. Funeral later this week :(

LATEST NEWS-29th November 2018:
My Dad did a 180 degree miracle turnaround!!! We cannot believe he survived what he went through.
His heart op was a great success, but...he has spent most of his time in hospital since then.
His Prostate Cancer has returned! He spent 30 days on radiation back in 2011. He cannot have that same treatment anymore, or be operated on.
As of Monday 27th November, he will have 2 1/2 hours of daily treatment, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (compression chamber-like divers have), for the next six weeks. This will speed up recovery by fast forwarding the repair of skin tissue, blood vessels etc.

Thanks you to all those sending thoughts and prayers his way. 🦋🙏🇦🇺

UPDATE************21st Oct. My Dad partially woke yesterday but has deteriorated. Pneumonia has set in and I may lose him. He is being kept comfortable. 😓😓😓

I have deleted swaps I created, and/or signed up for. Impossible for me to participate for now.

UPDATE 19th October 2017: There were complications during heart procedure on Dad yesterday. He has been put into an induced coma. Been 24hrs so far. I’m shattered. Tomorrow they are going to wake him, so it may be touch and go. I’m trying to remain positive. Prayers pls :’(

UPDATE 17th October 2017: Those who have followed my Dads progress this year, I wanted to let you know he is FINALLY having his two heart procedures done tomorrow the 18th. Let’s hope for the best...🙏🦋💜

🎂 August 22nd...Thank you to the anonymous Aussie swapper who sent me a random 'Belated birthday Postcard'. It was a lovely surprise and very much appreciated!🙏

❤A big massive hugs to ALL those Dad recieved 84th birthday wishes and cards! You know who you are. I'd like to list all those that sent when I get some time. DAD is so happy and proud of all those with nig hearts! Thank you for making his day very special! ❤💚💙💜💛💝🙏


FYI: International post from Australia takes some time. Please give at least 3-4 weeks past the send by date.


First up, I just wanted to thank all the amazing partners I am teamed with in all the swaps I join. Very rarely does a day go by that I don't receive 'happy mail'. Makes my day! 💜

📭 Sadly, I was flaked on in my first ever hosting of a swap Send an Inspirational Card by @Aquiller
♥️♥️♥️ As I am unable to 'Angel' myself, the lovely @Midwestkiwi Angeled me.

📦 Angeled @Deanna38 for Farmers Wife Sampler #2 swap.


Firstly, my disclosure...
I always send by the due date. Please be aware international post takes longer than usual, can take weeks, so I ask for your patience. If I feel I may be late, I will contact you asap. I do login regularly, so PLEASE, if I have not rated you, I'd appreciate if you'd give me a nudge. We are mere mortals, but would not have been intentional, sorry. (With so much happy mail, I'm trying to keep track-lol).
Also...please don't hesitate packing multiple swaps together if we become partners in several swaps at the same time. No need to ask. Save your postage costs.

Secondly...Life happens-if you are late in sending, just message me. It's no problem at all.

Thirdly... I ALWAYS respond when you've taken the time to rate me and leave comments, as I appreciate the feed back, cheers! 😊


I suffer with anxiety/depression quite regularly. Besides life, it isn't easy looking after an aged parent. Being in touch creatively helps me immensely.

💜 My husband is a truck driver, away often. I have three children, five step children...my eldest is 37, our youngest is 22. None live at home :) The amount of granddies to date is 12, ranging in ages from 1-14 yrs. Grandy 13 is on it's way!

💜 I am the eldest of six. My parents met whilst both in the Royal Australian Air Force, so we did a lot of moving around whilst growing up. My Mum who turned 80 in September, happily lives on her own, but my 84 yr old Dad lives with me in a granny flat attached to my home. (Now living independently).

🐶🐶 adore my two little dogs Missy Moo & Lil Miss Daisy. 27th Feb 2017...poor Daisy has had op on her left hind knee. Once recovered, the right one needs to be done. Sadly, it's $1000 each one, but they're my babies. Missy Moo had both done years ago. The million dollar fur babies LOL

Favorite Books

Most of Stephen King's books, especially the Dark Tower series. True Crime/stories. Novels with a lot of suspense and mystery. Twilight Saga. Audiobooks

Books about: Mindfulness. De cluttering (not working :) Law of Attraction. Helping Depression and Anxiety Colouring books Journaling etc
Quilting

Favorite Movies

Just a few...Twilight saga; Titanic; One Fine Day; Lord of the Rings; Officer and a Gentleman; Braveheart; The Notebook; Lion King and original 'Bambi'...now that's going back a bit!

On television my favourite shows are documentaries, True Crime...but advertising puts me off, so I don't watch it much at all.

Favorite Music

28th Feb 2017 :) I can now add the wonderful ADELE to my list!!!!! She's the bomb!

Love a variety of music. I'm not one for country music, even though I've seen Dolly Parton (My Dad won front row seats). I've seen so many musicians/bands from Queen in 1975, INX in the 80's, George Thoroughgood, AC/DC in the 90's to Kings of Leon a couple of years ago.

Lots in between...Bay City Rollers, Gwen Stefani, Suzi Quatro, Michael Jackson, Leo Sayer, Simply Red, Angels, Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham, Gym Class Heroes...and many more.

K.D.Lang would my most favourite.

Things I Love

You may find a lot that's listed here is for the sake that I am hooked on ATCs....2.5" x 3.5" cards. So tiny little bits and pieces go a long way, thanks.

~Die-cut cutouts.

Listening/watching a good thunderstorm with lightening...I love winter.

Stickers/3D etc. Please no children/reward or school ones.

~Ephemeral/Steampunk items

~Findings, such as: little metal items (ie. from broken bracelets etc), brooches, gemstones, charms. Old or new.

~Beads: glass, metal, shimmer, all colours and shapes etc. NO seed beads please.

Small scrappy bits of unusual papers, any texture, colour...but not glossy.

~Butterflies

Addicted to writing pens, but not child themed.

Calligraphy...anything

~Small ink pads in various colours.

Zentangles

Butterflies, lots of butterflies.

~Bling, bling and more bling.

~Pretty Embellishments, buttons, brads etc.

Stamping

~Purple, purple and more purple. Pretty blues, teals and pinks. (Not hot pink or neon colours)

~Anything with Quotes/affirmations on...love them!

I like to collect butterfly printed fabrics. Must be 100% cotton, unused, clean, odour free etc etc and are always welcome.

Did I say I love butterflies? 😃

Scrappy pieces of sheer fabrics and laces, and trims, no matter how small or wide, white, Ivory, black, other colours, even with bling, beads or sequins on them. for artwork. Not fussed! From a 2" piece and up.

Love Pincushions and patterns.

Bookmarks (no ad/free).

As for postcards, I prefer sent naked, unless a swap requires to be sent in an envie. Really though, I'm not that big on them unless it's a colouring in type swap. (I find postcards are not very good to rate on).

I did say butterflies didn't I?

~Solitude : peace and quiet. (I want to disappear into the wilderness, more often than not.)

My Dislikes

Not a fan of the colour green...except when it involves trees and flowers or a particular swap I've in.

NO more Washi Tape samples at this time please.

Orange really does not 'a peel' to me at all. (hahaha)

Not into tea of any flavour. Tea themed projects are fine, just not drinking, unless it's for weight loss :)

No Disney at all.

Snakes, spiders and bugs, no matter how small.

Terrible drivers.

Rude people.

Flakers.

Noise (I'm an introvert)

When I cannot find extra time to do things that I like...

When I can't find my mojo to do the things I like!

💟THANK YOU💟

Comment: It was more than okay!!!! It's awesome!!! I really like how you added so many personal notes!!! And don't worry, I've found all of the bits and bobs (where did that saying come from anyway?) and I'm already thinking of how to use the goodies! Including planting the flower seeds, I wonder how they will do here in New England? I'm sorry to hear about your dad...and happy to be one of your last swap partners...sending blessings...PS, love your budgie's feathers!
Response: Oh I am so pleased you enjoyed my first ever Magpie Journal. I think I could of just kept going lol. Mmmm, ‘bits n bobs’? Aussie slang maybe...? Bits n pieces hahaha. Not really thought about it. The seeds are a small native flowering tree/shrub of Western Australia where I live. They like hot weather and tolerate dryness once established. Dad is coping well for now, thank you. I’ve thrown myself back into a lot of quilts to teach, so I’m keeping busy. Do enjoy the extras, and thank you for the awesome comment and ratings! Very much appreciated. Merry Christmas 🎄 to you and yours, cheers! 😊🦋❤️

Hello Jennifer...Just wanted you to know that I received the ZZ-Collaborative Twinchie PC V2.2. There was no place for me to rate..with a 5...or give you a heart! But I am. Isn't it amazing how long it took to complete this swap. Thanks for sending the pc home to me. Susan, Raleigh, North Carolina nc27614

phillaine on Mar 27, 2017:

Putting together a swap for you--quick question: how do you feel about butterflies? ;) ♥

MissBrenda on Mar 12, 2017:

My prayers to you and to your father. I would like to mention to you that I have had two heart valves replaced 5 years ago on March 6th, 2012. The surgery is a serious one, but the doctors know what they are doing. My advice is after he is released from the hospital, have him go to a health care facility where they can help him work on building up his strength, as he will need that. I do not know how your health care system works in Australia, but that part is crucial, having not done it myself and wishing afterwards that I had. I did end up doing it, only 3 weeks later. Again, my prayers to you and your father and of course, the doctors and the care nurses who will play a vital role in his recovery, for without them, all would be lost. Brenda

Stahlrala on Mar 9, 2017:

Hugs and prayers my dad has the same bday his bday April 3, 1936 he is a little younger then your dad but my dad had heart valve replacements and many stents, will be sending a prayer soon

debtea2 on Mar 9, 2017:

much love and prayers for you and Max things will be ok, have faith
