I am a 50 something lady who loves my many pets, 4 dogs, a pomeranian, border collie, sheltie and border collie beagle mix; 2 cats,a sphynx mix and a tuxedo. I am in love with tigers, I think they are the most beautiful of all wild animals.. I enjoy crafts of all kinds.. Camping, flower gardening, and nature walks are a few of my favorite activities. I love cheery colors, laughter, and the company of family and friends. My husband is my best friend. I am also a volunteer for our local humane society, and animal rights are one of my passions.

Things I Dislike

Liver, dark, gloomy colors, National Geographic nature documentories that are too graphic, skulls, anything gothic, spiders and snakes.

Craft Room Favorites

I love any lace, am fond of Antique lace; buttons: one can never have too many! Beads, ribbons, . Fabric.!I love all things about it, the design, texture, and beauty. Dotted swiss, and designs with dotted swiss in it. Vintage fabrics. I also save all my greeting and Christmas cards that have potential for future craft projects, like scrapbooking.


I love to give hearts, but not just because someone sent extras. I give them according to how well you kept to the rules of a swap, did you look at my profile before hand to be sure of my likes or dislikes, for instance, I don't like skulls, so if you send me something with skulls I know you didn't read it. I am very easy to please though, and appreciate all that is received. I don't flake!! If you haven't received your swap please pm me, as it is most likely lost in the mail. Please don't unfairly rate me without letting me solve the problem first!
