About Me

So I broke my ankle and can’t get to the post office. I check my messages about every two weeks.

Like Skinnys... iSkinny swappers They are a little bigger than ATCs

I'm 49 with a husband of 24 years. I work part time in a hospital. I live in Ontario, Canada. Love where I live! I walk to work. I like to go camping, even if I don't get to much. If there is water nearby even better because I like to watch the sun set over the water. I enjoy planting flowers in the spring but hate pulling out weeds! Not much offends me, I'm easy going.

We have a cat, it's a boy and we named him Quirk Mc Bitey Captain Rambo Awesome Smith.

I open my mail in front of the computer, so I rate as I open. Hearts for sure if you have wowed me. If I think you worked hard on a package for me I will give you a heart too or you read my profile. ( I hope you will do the same). I like to give hearts!!!

Favorite Music

I listen to all sorts of music, from jazz, rock, and relaxation music. We now have internet radio and it has every kind of music you can think of, so we listen to some of each. I love listening to the sounds of the birds in the morning.

Favorite Books

Reading any book that keeps me from putting it down, from mysteries to funny books in the summer. I love looking for old cook books and booklets.

Favorite Movies

Not a movie buff. If I do watch movies, I want to laugh or be taken to another world unless I can learn something.

Favorite Television

Most of what ever is on Turner Classic Movies. I love that there are no commercials. Sitcoms, but not dumb ones.

Favorite Crafts

Paper crafts, stamping and on the back burner is scrapbooking. I dream these things. That is how I get a lot of my ideas. I am very lucky, I have a whole room to leave my craft stuff out. And now there is pintrest!!

I love making my own background papers for the Atcs and Skinnys I send. 99% of the time I start off with a white background. I like to use paint, ink and bits of paper. I work on being a better artist everyday. You should see my pile of bits and pieces I have to use( not much room left in the basket.LOL

I like to cook and bake. Trying new foods is so much fun, I just wish there wasn't the dishes to do afterwards. I enter items into the fall fair here.

Favorite colours

I like pink and blue, not necessarily together and all shades. Baby pink I enjoy more than hot or bright pinks. Also I am tending to lately use greens and blues

I look great in red, deep red!! LOL

Other things I like

bugs, cute and real

anything shiny!

nature, trees, ferns,large flowers

animals , large dogs, cats, pigs, small colourful birds,

cheese and , bacon

pattern paper

Halloween over Christmas


The number 7

silver before gold


Any tiny images too.(for inchies) or retro

Cook booklets

Out on a limb...any size rolo holder Got one!

Nothing baby related please


About the post office...If I get to the post office the cancelled stamp will match the date on here from my small town. If I can't get to the post office the stamp will have a different date as it has to go to a major city but was still picked up that day. I always put my letters in well before the pick-up time. So it has just travelled closer to you!

read your profile Very nice. I like the ending of it about post. Yes Even if you drop it in one of those postal boxes the red ones, come home and mark sent it is not going to have that date on it because it takes a couple days for those postal boxes to get picked up. Something people have to understand for sure!
