About Me

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!!

.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 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.

Comment: I LOVE the tiger pc! Thanks so much! I'm adding it to my collection--a "streak" of tigers. isn't that a cool term for their group? Also called an ambush which also seems appropriate. Thanks again! I'll send this one home once I figure out what to do--it looks pretty darn cool already!
Response: I know, some of these pcs turn out really cool, don't they? Streaking tigers? HeeHeeHee

Artistic rated for Fill a Purse on Aug 23, 2019
Comment: The bag is lovely. Thank you for the newspaper and all of the contents. I didn't hear back from you on the PM I sent about the security tag on the purse. I had to get a wire cutter to get it off. The hassle and time it took to actually get to the bag took away some of the joy that this swap would have brought.
Response: Hi. I am glad u liked the purse & contents. I am sorry about the security tag; it wasn't intentional. If u want 2 send me the receipt I'll reimburse you for the wire cutters. There is not much else I can really do.

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.
