About Me

I'v e noticed lately that several of my ratings for others have not been "sticking". If you haven't received a rating from me & it has been a while; please let me know & I will re-do it. Not sure if it is a glitch in the system or what...

Well, WA state is currently in mandatory lock down. I am considered high risk & my hubby is working long hours at work so some packaged items may take a bit longer to get sent out. I apologize for that. Will try to let partners know in advance if I will be sending out late. If you have the opportunity please stay home!! Wash those hands & we'll all try to get through this Coronavirus together. Stay well/Stay healthy!!

.I tend to like music from the 70's & 80's artists like: Elton John, Cyndi Lauper, Tina Turner, Journey, Rod Stewart, Pet shop Boys, etc. You know, music that is considered to be oldies now!! Ha Ha Ha

Favorite Television

Don't really tend to watch much tv. I love a lot of shows off of Sy-Fy. The Prodigal Son, The Magicians, Vikings, Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones, Van Helsing, Forged In Fire, etc.

Favorite Crafts

Most of the crafting I do is with rubber stamps, clip art, recycled items. Mostly making ATCs & cards but want to learn how to journal & make flip books, too. So many crafts; not so many hours in the day!

In 2019 I hope to develop my skills in art journals & flip books & maybe even hand made post cards=)

I like making (but am slow at it) pocket letters, ATCs, cards, scrapbook pages, etc. I like going to thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales to find goodies to craft with or recycle.

Comment: what a coincidence! I made a J for Japan ATC for this swap too! Japan is one of my favorite countries to visit! I went to Japan for the 13th time this January before coming back to the States. I was actually planning to go again in April, but am stuck home due to the current situation. I really hope all the craziness will end soon! Take care!
Response: I guess great minds think alike=) Wow!! You've been 13 times!!?? Lucky you! I don't know; unfortunately, I think this virus is going to be with us for a long time....
