About Me

I am taking a swap break for a few months. I'll see you in September.

I am retired and now living in the desert in Arizona. I am loving life and the feel of living in a quiet cowboy/horse town. I am married and we live with our two Ragdoll cats, Rusty and Casey. We have an adult son and he, his wife, and our 2-year old grandson live in Europe. I LOVE being a grandma!

I love all types of DIY projects and want to try and learn it all! I love to go to flea markets and antique stores - the fun is in the hunt for that perfect piece to add to my collections! I have even gotten my husband interested.

I enjoy playing MahJong and recently found a group to play with each week. It is nice being back in a social setting after isolating for so long during the pandemic.

Favorite Crafts

I love Paper Crafts - card making, journaling, book making, ATC's

I love mixed media art and assemblage. I make "memory jugs" using a lot of my favorite collections. I currently am making an angel jug where the base is a 5-gallon stone crock, encrusted with angels, and I have a mannequin bust I am encrusting with religious medals and will hang my collection of rosaries on.

I enjoy quilting and am currently working on 2 baby quilts; Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Favorite Books

I read every John Grisham novel. I enjoy a good story that engages a reader from the first chapter. Absolutely loved The Hunger Games series - Katniss Everdeen lives in my heart forever. I have not read the Harry Potter books, nor have I seen the movies - while I have some interest, I think the "hype" keeps me away. Possibly my expectations are too high?

Favorite Movies

I don't watch a lot of movies, but my top favories include Dirty Dancing, Shawshank Redemption, Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music, It's A Wonderful Life, and how could I forget The Godfather Trilogy (but #2 is my favorite)

Favorite Television

I watch a lot of Big Bang Theory. I love the show Dexter and subscribed to Showtime just so I can watch the new series that started a few weeks ago. I spend more time watching You Tube Videos and like watching tutorials to learn a new craft or technique.

Favorite Music

I like a variety of music, including oldies, rock n roll, current pop artists, country, and will occasionaly tune into classical and broadway showtunes.

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful ATC! I truly apologize for this late rating, as I moved 1300+ miles since this swap, and apparently, your envelope got caught up in my packed items, I just came across it! Very nice ATC!!!

Comment: Thanks for this pretty Easter ATC! My DH and I dreamed about coming to Alaska, when we were first dating and married in the 70's. We finally came on vacation in 1995, bought land up here and got my DH a job up here, moved to the mainland in 1998, and built the house on Amook Island. Finally retired here in 2011! It can be done, a lot faster than we did it, and we have enjoyed the journey! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Moving can be a nightmare (military child, renter) but when it works out? Oh, a blessing, for sure. My husband and I moved from Iowa to Oregon a few years ago. To this day, I believe it was the best decision we have ever made. Especially when we learned the apartment complex we had moved out of got infested with bedbugs just a month after we left. Gross! We dodged that nightmare.
