About Me

Married for 34 years and homeschool mom of 4. Only one left at home and he's 11 years old. Life is what we make it I always say. So I try to look for the beauty in even the simplest of things like spider webs with dew drops clinging to them, budding trees in Spring and bird nests in the cedars. We live on a small farm. Are you curious: MIMOSAGIRL?..well, it was difficult to find an id not already in use and had been talking to another swapbotter about a big mimosa tree my son had planted for me years ago and that is how the id came about.

Favorite Music

I like many different types of music: Old Rock n Roll, 1940's era ( check out 1940'sUKradio on the web) 1970-80's pop, Bluegrass, Easy Listening/Alternative, Natural sounds with Classical, Piano, Classic Christmas by piano or original artist, Spanish guitar, Celtic, Bagpipes, Scottish/Irish folk,& Appalachian folk....

Favorite Books

Cookbooks, True Stories about history, I have all the Boxcar Children books and Hardy Boys, Survival Books, Gardening, Herbal, and puzzle books especially Circle a word :) I have enjoyed reading many of Barbara Kingsolver books. My favorite being Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

Favorite Movies

Sarah Plain and Tall, Anne of Avonlea , Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Seal Morning, Lord of the Rings , The Hobbit, Star Wars,....

Favorite Television

Sanford and Son, Sesame Street, Andy Griffith, Dancing with the stars (Pre-2016), Dark Shadows, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Once Upon a Time,

and BBC shows... Home Front, Wartime Kitchen, Foyle's War Currently watching Netflix episodes of Father Brown...funny and suspenseful

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy paper crafts like card making, scrap booking, Scherenshnitte, miniature book making, ATC, wrapping paper, and gift bags

I quilt, sew doll clothes, make bags and things with fabric. I make clothing and costumes too. My husband says I just enjoy collecting fabrics....LOL shifty eyes

I crochet but mostly basic to intermediate things. Also again, I think hubby thinks I'm just a yarn collector. I do most of the sewing and yarn crafts in winter.

Painting anything is fun like canvas, glassware, wood, walls....I enjoy being creative.

I like trash crafts...things made from stuff that would otherwise end up in a landfill like: baby food jars filled with homemade healing salve or cute diorama scene, coffee cans become a toddlers drum, coffee creamer shaker container painted and stickers added is now a holder for car snacks.

I have started doing some beading but hesitate to buy too much for a new hobby......hubby says he needs to build me my own shop to store my S.T.U.F.F. hahahhaa....

Things I like

I love Tea especially estate teas. My favorite being Darjeeling but after that just about any of the black teas, herbal teas and flavored. I also enjoy sharing starts from plants & seed trading. I currently have 42 different varieties of tomato seeds. I am just starting to get into stamping and paper trading crafts so my hoard/stash is little. I'm happy to share what I have though!

Some of my likes:

Kawaii items, Gudetama, any Sanrio, Anpanman, Rilakuma too

Bento box items (food picks/tiny containers)

Paper dolls

........still new at this so ....surprise me. I am super easy going so if it's obvious that you tried I will not be upset. Thanks for reading my profile! :)

I like owls, wolves, eagles, deer...most wildlife fauna and flora.

I would like to receive some stamped images. You don't have to do the fussy cutting. I can do that myself when I'm ready to use it. Thanks.

KIDS Swaps :

Aiden, my 11 year old son, likes Legos, Playmobil, Western or Native American things, stickers like cars/trucks and robots, hot wheels/ matchbox cars, Pokemon cards, official G.I Joe anything, boy/manly washi tape samples, playing card deck with interesting scenes or logos, leather crafting kits, Minecraft /Halo/ Lego mini figures, Shopkins (yes he likes Shopkins too) , He also collects Red Rose Tea (or any tiny porcelain figurines, key chains, mini flashlights, fishing lures/trinkets, marbles, pressed pennies, carabiner clips, old fashioned popup books/cards, rootbeer , butterscotch and grape flavored old fashioned candy sticks, and any type gift card so he can be Mr. grown up at the check out with his own wallet. LOL.... Seriously though he isn't really picky and is just thrilled to see something in the mail for him same as you or I would be. I can't thank you enough for including him in the swap. (5 and heart to you for doing that).

He also likes pressed leaves from trees(please include name of tree and area found), interesting bugs/butterflies specimens, ...Thank you for thinking of him.
