About Me

I've been married to my best friend for 37 years. We have three sons, three granddaughters, and three grandsons. I work for local government. My favorite color is RED!! But, I'm decorating my new kitchen in Yellow and Red and a Mary Engelbreit "Queen of the Kitchen" theme. I collect Mary Engelbreit, Precious Moments, Barbie, Clocks, snowglobes, Antique Hankies, Fiestaware and quilts. I love classic cars and have a 1967 Chevelle myself.

For postcards, I prefer that you send it naked!

Pansies are my favorite flowers. And I love socks!

I've been searching for Mary Engelbreit fabrics and they are really hard to find in rural Arizona. Anybody sending me Mary Engelbreit fabrics, even fat quarters, will automatically receive a heart! Re: swaps/deadlines/rating -- I always send my swap packages and I always rate the people who send to me. So if it's been a while since the deadline and you haven't received from me, please DO let me know so I can track it down or re-send as needed. And if you sent me something a while back, but I haven't thanked or rated you, then contact me because I probably didn't receive it. (Thanks to "Tia Bel" for this excerpt since I copied it from your profile. I thought it was a good idea!)

Favorite Music

Country: Toby Keith, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, Dolly Parton, Reba MacEntire, Gretchen Wilson, Terry Clark, Leann Rimes, Shania, Twain...well, just about ALL Country music.

Favorite Movies

Romance and Comedy

Favorite Television

House, Everybody Loves Raymond, Malcolm in the Middle, American Idol, all DIY craft shows, Dirty Jobs, George Lopez, How It's Made, and Days of Our Lives when I get a chance to be home during the day.

Favorite Crafts

Sheeesh! Crocheting, knitting, cross-stitch, tole painting, plus drawing and watercoloring and all paper crafts. Never met a craft I didn't like! Oh yeah, and my first love, sewing!

Comment: Thanks for the terrific package. I especially like the ink pens - I dare anyone to steal one of those! I don't know who was more excited to get this package - me or the cat. He has been playing in the empty box all night long. Imagine a long black cat half in, half out tossing & turning and purring. Nifty gifts and entertainment too.

Hello yes it was 106 today. We live in Banning, Ca. which is in Southern Cal, in a pass area about 2500 ft above sea leval. In case you are not familiar we are about 25 miles west of Palm Springs and and about the same distance east from Redlands or Moreno Valley, right in the middle. We just had a Walmart open about 1 1/2 yrs ago and now the new houses and shopping centers are moving in. There went the neighborhood. I enjoyed reading your profile. By the way where do you live? Take care Faye

Karen, in case you are still wondering, ROYGBIV is the way to remember: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. See, even Forgetful Jones here remembered!
