About Me

I am a sah/Mom/Grammy. I have 4 children--3 grown up with families, 1 teen. I have 10 grandkidlets. Last, but not least---I am married to the love of my life--we have been married for 43 yrs. We are both all about family. During covid 19, that has been the hardest thing for both of us--not seeing and not hugging our family.Our son got Covid in August, he and his family were in quarantine for almost a month. I had never gone a month without seeing him in his (41 yr) life. He is now recovering, but not able to be as active as he usually is--no jogging for him in the near future..LOL I do thank God for his recovery and that his wonderful wife and 5 children didn't get sick.

I have a wacky sense of humor and very eclectic tastes. I once convinced my youngest daughter and oldest granddaughter (they are the same age) that they were part robot as a 2 week long April Fool's joke.

I am a Christian and a children's Sunday School teacher--but that doesn't mean I don't have fun and don't have a sense of humor---I think my sense of humor and wackiness are 2 of the gifts God gave me---it helps even out the shyness/introverted part of me! I don't mind receiving religious items.

Favorite Music

Contemp. Christian, 70s, pop, classical, jazz. Ithink I'm pretty well-rounded (well, in more 'weighs' than one)!!!

Favorite Television

I like to watch shows on Netflix and Hulu. I finished watching Grey's Anatomy, The Good Doctor, Bless this Mess, Dead to Me, The Crown.....I watched Virgin River---but am not too happy with the changes they made--it's very different than the book. AND.....yes, I watched Tiger King! I like to think keeping current keeps me young!

Favorite Crafts

I like a lot of different kinds of crafts. All of the easy kind! I like to decorated matchboxes, make bookmarks, make magnets out of tiles. I just started making pocket letters, mostly mini (3 pkt), I like making them, but am always worried that mine aren't as awesome as others.

I love any crafts that others make--there are so many artistic people on Swap-bot.

Some of my favorite things

I LOVE to read! I especially like thrillers/suspense. I like true crime, some chicklit. To say I am an avid reader---would be an understatement. I am in a reading challenge for 2020 to read 185 books. I'm close to 150 (9/20)

I have been a member of Swap-bot since May, 2007.


matchboxes--decorated or undecorated


postcards---vintage or not, written on or not-I like 'em all. I also like vintage postcard booklets from the 50s, 60s (?) , they fold out and have several cards attached, I have recently found postcard books on Amazon--that have lots of postcards in a book. I love those,too. I really enjoy touristy ones--my all time fav are ones with motels on them (60s style).

Stickers! I love them--and I'm not picky; I will like whatever someone may send me.

Birds---my 6 yr old grandson and I really enjoy watching birds.


Embellishments---all kinds


gel pens and Sharpies

I am currently on the Keto diet and would love to get some fun recipes.

I like tea towels, fun kitchen goodies--my kitchen is decorated in apples, but I like everything.

I collect Rag Dolls (would love paper or stickers of Raggedy Ann & Andy or other ragdolls)

Buttons!!! I like to fill jars with buttons

Pretty paper

I love holiday things; especially Christmas

Washi tape

things with Smiley faces make me happy! Lip balm....little notepads or notecards; I know some people don't enjoy getting individual sheets from notepads--but I like those, too.

I always love anything from my Amazon WL--most of it is books because they are my fav--I keep it up-to-date---used books are fine.

Flower seeds, plants. These are just a few of of the things I love---I love getting anything in the mail because I love surprises so much!!!

I always rate right after I open the mail---please remember to rate me, too. Thanks bunches!

Comment: Thank you for your note - I loved to hear about your family. You are right - we have a lot in common. how wonderful that you and your son have opened your homes to other children, blessings as you say. We need more people like you in this world! thank you for all the goodies, including the moon landing stamps! one more thing in common - I watched it with my grandparents too but they were at our house in Minneapolis. extraordinary to watch! thank you again.

I prefer my mashed potatoes with peas. :D I kill my plants too, which is why I have an aloe plant. If I forget to water it for two months, it doesn't die! Oddly, my grandfather taught me that vinegar and newspaper trick when I was a kid! I like funky socks too!
