Hi..I live in Las Vegas..great city if you stay off the strip!! LOL! I've been married for 40 yrs in Dec/2018. I have 2 children and 6 grandchildren, ranging in age from almost 3 to 22 yrs old. I love my family, scrapbooking, reading, gardening, the internet, cooking and my job...in that order. I am a Business Services Administrator for a landscape supply company...(fancy name my boss calls me to say I am in charge of everything).
I love all types of music, mostly rock from 60's to present day, alot of country lately..love Little Big Town and Band Perry, classical and Christmas..any version of Carol of the Bells is awesome! My son burned me a cd with over 20 different versions on it. I've seen Trans-Siberian Orchestra 3 times now and they are beyond awesome!! Had to travel to Phoenix last year as they didn't bring their show to Las Vegas...SO worth it!!
I love to read! I read cookbooks for fun, scrapbook magazines. Don't really have a favorite author..but I enjoy romance, mystery and comedy books. I even still read childrens books...think Nancy Drew and Boxcar Children when the mood hits me! I have a Kindle but still prefer a real paper book over the digital and I really can't get into books on CD having someone read to me!!
I like happy movies...Very favorite is Wizard of Oz, The Long, Long Trailer w/Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz...(a relatively unknown but VERY cute movie if you Love Lucy!!) I can watch Disney classic cartoons over and over even though the kids have outgrown them now....thank goodness for the Grandkids...the family can quit groaning when they have to see me watching Cinderella for the 50th time.
Got rid of cable due to ridiculously high cost and just have Netflix now. Don't really have a favorite anything anymore...just watch whatever strikes my fancy when I'm in a television mood!
I enjoy scrapbooking, altered art, ATC, trying new recipes (thanx to Pinterest!),,,Speaking of Pinterest..can that be considered a craft??..I have some awesome boards that I love to look at when I need a happy boost!! I could..and sometimes do spend hours pinning!! I love playing with the Prima Doll stamps and have recently discovered Pocket Letters...what a simple, fun concept...can't believe no one came up with that sooner!!! I made an altered puzzle for a swap here and that was a blast..want to do another one for myself soon!!
pigs..they are just too cute!!.. and scrapbooking supplies..of all kinds! My husband swears I could open my own store at this point...he's probably right!! I also have found a new interest in dress forms since he came across two metal sculptured ones that are awesome!!
Things I like to receive:
paper scraps (especially mulberry paper...love to tear this for ATC's)
peacock related items
vintage valentine, christmas, halloween, easter, victorian ephemera
ribbons of all kinds
recipes that you enjoy
any kind of fairy items
Prima flowers (especially altered by you!)
roses..or any kind of flower items
purple is my favorite color
vintage hankies or doilies
buffaloes ( I know this is weird, but they're pretty awesome!!)
random playing cards
handmade tags/embellishments for scrapbooking
Punch Studio Note Cards (just recently discovered these & OMG..they are beautiful!!)
Postcards..written on and naked
Pens...especially purple ones
clear stamps and ink pads
bits and pieces of unwanted jewelry (someday I want enough to make one of those really cool Christmas Trees out of all of it!!)
I started this category and then realized I don't really have dislikes except for pine and eucalyptus scented stuff!! Everything else you can find a use for!!
Now that I've joined Thriftstore Find group..which looks like it will be alot of fun...I decided to create a category here! I LOVE thrift stores..you never know what you will find in them! Here is a list of what I look for when I'm in them:
*Raggedy Ann & Andy hardback books from the 60's or older
*Little Golden Books (older ones with the gold or silver spine)
*Nancy Drew Books from the 80's or older
*Boxcar children books
*Dr Suess Books
*Unique Tin or cardboard containers
