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.
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....
♥ 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

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

(5♥ to you for doing that).

I'm also a opportunistic dumpster diver. You would probably be SHOCKed at what perfectly good usable things stores toss out. I don't go as often nowadays. That's why I say I'm opportunistic...if I am there and get the feeling that the opportunity is right then I will take a peek inside. One of my favorite places throws out 1000's of calendars and planner books...(me jumping up and down)
If you are curious about anything just message me. I'm very easy to get along with.
Blessings to you!
