I am an avid reader. I love penpals! And paper, pens, notebooks and anything you can find at a stationery store. I spend much time on my computer, researching anything and everything. I make greeting cards and bookmarks and have been lucky enough to have sold many of my crafts to friends and co-workers..even co-workers of my family. I still love writing long letters by hand, which my family and friends on the other side of Canada receive regularly. And I enter contests if it involves telling a story to win. (I've won several) Mostly funny stories. Guess I'm a book geek, a story teller...oh and I love photography! I spend many hours taking pics, which I use sometimes in my cards. I have framed my pictures and presented them to my friends as gifts. I love wine and chocolate, travelling around British Columbia and Washington on the weekend and seeing my grandchildren's faces light up when I visit. Oh and I almost forgot ...I love to bake. I really sucked at cake decorating though, so I took a course a few years ago and now my grandkids are no longer ashamed to take my cakes to school functions. I spend lots of time in the stores looking for great flavourings and items to use in the hundreds of muffins I seem to make for my big family and my friends.
Almost anything from Rock to Country to Classical.
Anything by Stephen King and Ann Rule. Love biographies of political figures and non-fiction. Also enjoy any book that makes me laugh.
St. Elmo's Fire, The Holiday, The Notebook, Something About Mary, Four Christmases. Enjoy comedies and love stories.
Most Comedies, Cooking Shows, Mentalist, Hallmark movies and anything on the History channel and A & E. I watch everything dealing with the paranormal.
Love anything to do with paper...Greeting Cards, Bookmarks, Writing. I'm crazy about photography and take hundred of photos almost every day. I like to make photo cards from my favourite shots. I like knitting, but it takes me forever to finish a project. And after all that, it's usually not good enough to wear!!! I've tried many different crafts, but not all of them turned out well. Still I've enjoyed trying.
I am addicted to pretty writing paper, fountain pens and cards that stand out. I like cards from all over the world and usually buy some when I travel. I don't keep them all for myself, but like to surprise my friends and family with a "Hello" on that pretty paper or card.
I enjoy making my own cards, using cute envelopes for them. As often as I've tried, I just cannot make a good envie. It's right up there with my knitting!!!
I am nuts about hummingbirds, dragonfies and butterflies. Anything showing a picture of these makes me smile. Sunflowers, lilies and oceans are all cool to see on paper, cards or on anything at all.
I feel blessed that I have friends who are a mixed bag of personality and excitement. They are funny, kind, some patient..some not, some mysterious, some very crazy...some just slightly so, some gorgeous.. some very plain; all of them loyal and caring. Most are adventurous...NONE of them boring! I'm certainly glad they choose to spend time with me, either in person or by email and snail mail.
