About Me

UPDATE: on vacation till July 12. Will rate when I get home

I was in a swap, Pick 3 goodies and my partner stated “ask me” for her address. After many, many, attempts to communicate with her and my host, no one has responded to my request for an address. I know she read my messages as it states READ. I believe she is a child. I have reported her to the administrator. Jana Williams, ID: danteazaria Update4-13-18. She deleted her account.

My BFF has been all over the internet and met some pretty amazing people. I was raised as an Army Brat but spent all my years till jr college living at Fort Ord and Monterey California. Lucky me, I met my best friend at the age of 8, Dorothy. We are still to this day 52 years later side kicks. Spent 14 years living in Los Angelos area. Because of the smog, crime, and pollution our family moved to the great north west and ended up in Vancouver Washington.Been here since 1994 and worked at our hospital for 24 years in the lab, hence, LABLAURI.I am married to a wonderful man of two year. On our first date, he said he wanted to save Venice Italy for his honeymoon. A year later on Oahu, under a big crescent moon, reflexing off the still waters, he asked for my hand in marriage. A year later, we are on a gondola in Venice . Other than my husband, I have 3 boys. Will 36, and my twins, John and Chris 33 I should mention were born on Christmas Day with red hair. Will and his wife have 2 children Joey and FINALLY a girl, Annabelle. John and his wife are expecting a boy in July. UPDATE: 5 lb 5 oz. with, yes, red hair. Which brings me to my best friend. I wouldn't say we are to competitive, but I will never forget my phone call to her announcing I too was having twins. She had twin girls 4 months before my twin boys. We don't live near each since I left for college but the 4 remain friends to this day.

I love to garden and am starting my first herb garden. UPDATE: Not very successful, oh well.

My favorite color is sage and purple. My husband must really love me because he let me paint our bedroom lavender 💜💜💜💜. The rest of the house is sage.

I play piano but only for myself .

I must be honest, I did not know what a Washi was till my BFF shared with me her stash. Looking forward to obtaining some. UPDATE: we got throw away lab coats now. Wear for a week or so then depose of it. I have since brought WASHI tape to work with me and I have the prettiest and most unusual lab coat. I have got to introduce Washi tape to people! Even got one med tech to check into swap bot.

Favorite Television

I love British TV. and subscribe to Acorn TV. They have Aussie tv shows too. Thank goodness for my iPad and wireless headphones. Hubby can watch his shows and I can watch mine,


I am a cubbies fan and married into it. Love Baseball and Football. I also love the Seattle Seahawks as I am from Washington. We watch a lot of baseball and football. So I would like anything Seahawks or Chicago Cubs stickies or whatever! UPDATE: boycotting NFL

Favorite Crafts

If it wasn't for by best friend, I wouldn't do crafts. I see the hours she spends making and creating art. I started small with jewelry. Still learning but can do the basics. My first mistake was spending three days beading. I didn't know to take breaks. I paid the price. Now, I get up, make a cup of tea or glass of wine🍷

Traveling has given me the opportunity to take pictures. Now I make beautiful cards. Favorites are snap shots from Venice Italy and Kauai. UPDATE I have a pink and gold Glam Craft Room. Love my girlie room, no boys allowed. LoL


I love to travel. I did not know my husband belonged to a time share till I ran across it while moving into our home. What's this I asked. He rarely has used it over the years and I was, give me everything you have on it because it will be used. I love going to the resorts, no travel lodge for me! Other than Venice, I have been to England, Paris, Rome, Florida, San Francisco, Monterey, San Diego, Kauai ( first Anniversary). Victoria BC (New Years). San Antonio Texas just cause...I have us locked into San Francisco again..for Christmas, my brother Dave got my husband and I tickets to the Cubs one night and the next night him and his wife will join us. This fall, the big island Hawaii, and St. Thomas Virgin Island next April. The hardest part is waiting. UPDATE: St Thomas canceled boohoo Washington DC for Cherry Blossom Parade.


Things I like Sparkling stuff,

Beads, Washi tape, tea ( no green) and coffee, Color pens, Anything to make jewelry , Postcards, Stationary sets, Note cards Turtles .O1 or .03 micron pen Ocean theme stamps Flowers/ tropical stamps

Anything pink and,gold for my craft/glam room

Fuzzy socks, Hair barrettes/headbands, Anything lavender, purple, or sage, Anything Cubs or SEAHAWKS

Not a big fan or small scraps of paper

I am,learning to water color above new paint brushes


Candles Soaps I do not journal

I spend a lot of time on my swaps and hope you can see that. I recently got the spare room for my crafts/glam room. I would stay in there all day if I could. It's been fun getting it set up.


If you have a favorite picture of yourself, feel free to send me one. I have an inspirational board that I made for my craft room. I would love to fill it with pictures of my swap buddies. thanks

Comment: WOW! This ATC is the cutest one I have ever seen, including my own! I love the strawberry background and the mason jar with the burlap lid and little ribbon, SO adorable. Great job!! Thanks for the Washi, did you make it yourself? It is really cute and I like how wide it is.
Response: It is from a die cut, I can send you some if you like. Thanks for loving it. Send me an email. What is it that you want to know how wide it is? Be happy to die cut some jars for you and labels

Rimbar rated for EH: Traveling Theme on Aug 13, 2018
Comment: 8/13/2018-OH how ever nice. I just love the envies you sent me and it sounds like you and ur hubby do alot of traveling...how awesome. We don't travel all that much. My husband and I have a business and he is always working and when he is not working it is because he is taking his mom or grandmother to the doctor. I think as far as I have gone out of Texas is to California and to Florida, Colorado, Kansas, Mexico, but it was all to visit family. Except Florida...we went to Disney World. Hope all goes well with your husband. Thank you.
Response: Well I hope someday you make some great travel plans and just do it. All work no play isn’t a fun thing!
Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful goodies!! I can't wait to use them!! I would love to see home of Peter Rabbit that is so very cool!! Thanks again!
Response: So happy you liked the swap.
