Current stuff

My world is going well at the moment I am going to be a grandmother again in July this time I hope that it is a boy. And I am back at work as full time as the industry allows, all the clients want to get up at the same time so you can only be in one place at a time, there is a big need for the inhome type care

I am a grandmother of 60+years have 4 grandkids aged from 18 months to 13 years old. I now have another Grandkid she was born on the 16th January 2011 and is just so cute. I work as a support worker, that is I help disabled people in their own homes. I help with "all daily living activities" and as I work all sorts of hours my family have my photo on the fridge so they know what I look like. LOL My favourite colour is purple,
I have a cat who thinks that he is a human and we are his staff, I am not very good at spelling but I try. I have found that when I do my swaps and then take them to be posted on the way to work I have found that they get lost in the bottom of the work bag, and I have been known to not post them on time and/or not mark sent. The main thing I try very hard to do is post on time.

About Me

I like to read science fiction and have just discovered some of the vampirer type books. Have been known to read Clive Clusser stories, Harry Turtledove "World War" stories. And a long time favourite Dragon riders of Pern. Another book that I have enjoyed reading is "The cat that" and I have forgotten the lady's name who wrote them. I have been reading Terry Pratchett's books about Discworld and have collected most of them, and the other half is almost as smitten with them as I am. I get a lot of different books from the local libaries, so that means that I don't always know or remember the authors, but I just read a lot of books, it's my escape. I also have a lot of Beading books. The music I like is Elvis, Dolly Parton, some church music and Quiet/ easy listening. The boys listen to some stuff that is not for me.

Favorite Crafts

I am a lace maker [bobbin lace]. Also do a lot of beading. A new craft that I can blame my sister for starting me on is Kumihimo [japanes braid] with beads, as if I needed any more crafts to get involved with. BUT it is fun. Have been know to have a go at most types of craft. I collect things like Dragons, Pelicans, & Gargoles. I am now real happy to have discovered ATC and have found that because I am just starting to do them, and I am not much of an artist so I make an effort to get things that meet the theme. As my skill is increasing I find that the ideas are getting easier to do and find.

Favorite Television

I enjoy a lot of different shows, Dr Who, Bones, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Myth busters, I also realy enjoyed Star Trek and Star Wars also Toy Story,and those type of cartoons movies. And think that Advatar was one of the best movies that I have seen for a long time. Also I now am a real fan of Dirty Jobs, have been getting the other half to record them when I am at work so now I have a couple of discs that I can watch when I want a good cheer up .

Likes etc's

I am a collector of a lot of things a bit of a bower bird, if it is purple I am happy with most things,
I have a sweet tooth, not so rapt in those packets of drinking chocolate. It is not a good idea to send tea to Australia they get a bit upset when they find it in the mail. I collect anything about pelicans, dragons [the softer ones cartoon type] and gargoles.

more info re swaps

This is just to say that sometimes I post my swaps on the way to work,so I might not post that I have posted them till a bit later. Then I sometimes pick them up from the post office on the way to work and then don't get to rated it till much later on.
I try very hard to get every thing done on time. But some times my other life gets in the way of my craft life. Something that I think is a very nice touch for the swaps is to put a little note in just to say Hi, it makes it more friendly and personal.

Can anyone help me please!

Can somebody please tell me how you can keep track of what you receive and send, I have a book that I write things into but things slip through.

Thanks in hope of your help.

Thank You

Thank you to all the lovely people who have sent me the info on what the 2 letters mean for the states of the United States. And all the other questions that I have and will ask. It never ceases to amaze me about what people know and are willing to share. with complete strangers well I suppose we are all friends by way of craft.

Change of email

Hi people I have changed my e-mail address because the yahoo has got so big I lose the important mail.

Response: I am very sorry but my life went to hell. in a big way and I have only now got things almost under control. Am now in the middle of shifting house. When things are sorted I am going to try and get it together

Comment: Per the details of this swap: These ATCs were supposed to be profile-based. The cards I received have absolutely nothing to do with anything in my profile. I contacted you and made you aware of the problem. You said you would "try" to create some profile-based ATCs. I will happily re-rate if/when I receive cards that meet the swap criteria.

This member has flaked on the Rookie ATC 2 swap. Have attempted to contact but she has not been online since June 21. Just a heads up to anyone else who may be flaked on.

Just FYI @ikat78 , to whom you owe a swap from 2010, is still active on SB. Maybe you can get that one taken care of.
