About Me

Just a note! I have been leaving feedback on all of my swaps but for some reason they are not all sticking. If you are missing a rating from me; please let me know & I will go back in & do it again. Sorry for the inconvenience!!

All righty, then. WA state is back on mandatory lock down. I understand the reasoning on it; just feel bad for all the businesses/people that are directly affected by this. Unfortunately, I think Covid is going to be here for quite some time; guess we'll all have to hunker down & ride the wave out. Keep safe, guys!!

Wow!! I can't believe how long it is taking mail to get where it needs to go. I sent a post card to California & it took three weeks to get there!! Sent a note card to SC & it took four weeks to get there!!. Please be patient with how long it is taking the mail to be delivered & I will do the same. It is just crazy what is going on with the post office right now. Covid has really changed a lot of things.

.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!

II 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.
