Favorite Music

.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

Don't really tend to watch much tv. I love a lot of shows off of Sy-Fy. The Gifted, The Magicians, Vikings, Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones, Van Helsing, Midnight, Texas, 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.

I am currently in an arm sling due to the fact that I injured my right hand/arm & I am right handed. I will get swaps out to people as soon as I get clearance from the doctor that I can take the sling off. Thank you for your patience!!

Comment: Oh my goodness! How awesome this Dragon 🐉 is!! I love it! I like how you did the red paper behind him, it looks like what I think Dragon skin looks like. So cool, he/she is a very regal creature and you did a marvelous job with it. I’m very happy to add it with my other Dragon ATC’s in my collection. Thank you very much, it’s beautiful! ❤️
Response: Thank you so much!! I was really hesitant to do it since I've never done a dragon before. I am so glad that you like him; thank you for the heart/rating=)

bb2 rated for USAPC: 3 Elements ATC #5 on Jun 7, 2019
Comment: I do like the colorful Cardinal with apples ATC. Thank you for the fun images also. I think it is Yakima bales of alfalfa we used to get on our dairy farm when I was a kid. Is it grown there?
Response: You are welcome! Yep, we have hay here. I used to have a boy friend that bucked hay all summer long & it is definitely hard work. It really is a small world; isn't it?

Comment: Whoo-hoo!! I hit the jackpot when the bot made you my partner. 10 stars to you for an incredible box of goodies for me, goodies to share with my scrapbook group (we go on our annual retreat this weekend!), AND goodies to share with two fellow swappers. There were items in the box that exactly matched the wants of my partners in two swaps with send-by dates later this month. Woot! Woot!
Response: Wow! I am really happy that you are able to put some of the things in the box to good use! I wasn't sure if you did rubber stamps or not so I am glad to hear a few will be living with you from now on=)

Happy birthday month

Artistic on May 29, 2019:

I got my bottle! I went inside the post office to show the clerk who mailed mine out. She went: "It came back? But yours was blue." I'd even forgot that fact. :) She didn't realize that I would get one in return. Can't wait to dig in when I get home. Thanks.
