About Me

If you get a swap, give a rating. It's a pretty fair trade, don't you think?

55, Married, Mom, and Grandmother, named after a 1957 pop-hit single: Lindy Lou (Little Butchie Sanders and the Gang) and a member of Indiana's unemployed again!

I scrapbook, make Postcards and cards, go on adventures with my grandchildren (I love to photograph them), love art of all kinds, draw, watercolor, sew, and cook (not necessarily that order.) I hate housework, and clean only when I must. Unfortunately I recently learned I am allergic to Dust Mites!

Favorite Music

Leeland, Josh Groban, Third Day, City on a Hill (mixed), Brandon Heath, Michael J Smith (especially "Freedom"), Andrew Lloyd Webber Phantom of the Opera, Nicole Nordeman and Fernando Ortega are my favorite music. I listen mostly to Christian music (a personal decision) and find it very uplifting.

Favorite Books

The Bible, The Shack, Applause of Heaven, Ruth Bell Graham's Collected Poems, Cosmic Christmas, The Kite Runner, Redeeming Love, The Last Sin Eater, Leota's Garden, My Time with God. The Island of Heavenly Daze series, My Antonia, Silas Marner, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, A Promise to Keep, Epic, and Tailchaser's Song and Epic, House Rules and right now I am reading "A Gift from the Sea" and savoring every chapter slowly!

Favorite Movies

Return to Me, Rogers & Hammerstein's Cinderella, UP, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera, Moonstruck, Avatar and Everafter a Cinderella Story. These are the ones I can watch over and over again.

Favorite Television

I used to like Criminal Minds, but it's too gorry now. My grandson monopolizes the TV with Wii, so I don't watch much anymore. When I do, it is usually the Hallmark Channel. I like to look at HGTV too.

Favorite Crafts

I'm addicted to scrapbooking and taking taking photos, but I'm not a professional-I just get lucky a lot! I like Postcard trading, and creating handmade Postcards.


I've been spending a lot of time visiting different Covered Bridges in Indiana. I love them!

I don't like being cold, but I love snow. My feet are always cold!

I think beets, turnips, eggplant and vinegar are disgusting. I've learned most of the things I like are triggers for allergies, or they are on the doctor's "no no" list. I'm cutting back, but I plan to have fun while I'm alive too!

Don't send me anything about satan or Hell. I am going to Heaven, if you want to know how I can be so sure, just ask me. No Vampires, Goth, Harry Potter, Wicca, Witchcraft, Mythology, or Astrology. God KILLED King Saul because he consulted with the Medium at Endor. Look it up in the Bible!

My Faith

I am a Christian, active at church. I love Jesus and believe the Bible is the absolute truth, written by men who were directed by the Holy Spirit, and the answer to every problem is there.

My favorite verse: Numbers 6:24-26 (a Bible blessing, not an Irish blessing.)

My life's verse: Psalm 119:37.

A verse for everyone to know: John 3:36

I like...

Scrapbooking stuff! Vintage looking items: calling cards, postcards, old pages, pages in other languages, children's storybook pages, dictionary pages, hymnal pages, crocheted lace doilies, chipboard accents, delicate looking things.

I am fond of Earl Gray tea. I GAVE UP STARBUCKS! I have a small tea cup collection, which my granddaughter is forcing me to use, and a China collection (Holly Holiday).

I love flowers, especially fragrant ones, but I think they are all beautiful. Once I received roses in the middle of a garage sale! I like birds, butterflies and other creatures.

I have an Irish cat...Thomas J O'Malley. I got him from rescue on St Patricks day. He has green eyes and is stubborn too.

I love the outdoors, camping (I used to do tents, but now I do those little cabins.) I like to hike and explore the world. I like to visit Covered Bridges and take photos. I am lucky that Indiana has so many!

Artists I love are the impressionists, Charles Wysocki, Edward Hopper and more.

I have a "round tuit", but I need more than one!

I like to window shop, to visit "garage sales", antique stores and flea markets. My kids hate it!

I love chocolate, one of my sinful pleasures. Almond Joy bars, Reese Cups, and Mr Goodbar are my favorites. I confess - I hide it if I buy it, and I eat it in secret (so I don't get caught and I don't have to share!)

My grandson with Aspergher's lives with us. He likes collecting Sports Cards, Pokemon, Bakugan, Beyblades, and reading the Warriors books, and he loves Wii.

Postcard Wish List and more...

I prefer 4x6 or vintage smaller postcards. Yay! I got a Manatee! Whale in the ocean, Sleighride in the snow, Carousel, Hot Air Ballons or Indiana Covered Bridges, will all get you two hearts [one of them mine!] I'm sure someone has a PC of a Sleighride! I would love a PC of the Royal Wedding (my Anniversary.) Map Cards... I need SO many. Stadium Cards (buy me one when you go to the big game... I can trade a few from Indiana.) Planes, rockets, ships, trains, cars and robots, [my grandson likes them]. Tea Cups, Coffee. Christian theme. I am collecting Vintage Linen cards (the ones with white borders... watching for some from St.Louis, Corpus Christi, or South Padre Island.) I love unusual PCs. Cinderella, Snoopy, Elvis, Krazy Kat, Mighty Mouse, Snoopy , Peanuts, Lord of the Rings (Eowyn is one of my granddaughter's names.) Circus, American Girls, Barbie, Moxie, Little Pet Shop (My granndaughter likes these.)

I mail postcards to my grandchildren with notes of encouragement and reminders of things we have done together...so I buy a LOT of postcards! I try to do this weekly.

Enough about me...what about you? I love it when you tell me about yourself, what's going on in your life, your prayers, challenges, and joys. I love it when you open up with your thoughts!

Comment: Here we gooooooo--BOOKS: Thanks for sharing the fav books. Hosting a tea sounds wonderful and I love Max Lucado! Both are on my reading list now! FILMS: Great PC selection and thanks for the film suggestions. I haven't seen "Extremely Loud..." or "Australia." They're now on my to-view list. I love RIO too. My son watches certain scenes over and over and over. PEOPLE I ADMIRE: Great peeps and great reasons to admire. Love that JFK PC! PRINCIPLES: Yes, yes and yes! :-) CLASSES/WANT TO LEARN: All great. Excel? I use Excel a lot for work, creating charts, etc., but I never use it outside of work--though I know it's flexible enough for some of the at-home tasks. I can give you some pointers on poetry and Digital SLRs. :-) There are a lot of websites that help with learning how to use SLRs. QUOTES: Love 'em adding them to my quotes-books!

Response: Wedding has been moved to July 2013. James won't graduate until May of that year. Gives me longer to save up for it!
Comment: Your week seems so relaxed and casual. I'm really jealous, you know? Kudos to giving up Starbucks! Did you get a "character" mailbox or the "standard"? Love, love the postcard, of course. Jacob Lawrence is one of my favorite artists! Thanks a whooooooole bunch!
Response: The mailbox looks a little fancy, but I didn't get an expensive one. Glad you liked your PC!
