About Me

I live in Northern Ontario with my wonderful and patient husband and laid back Dandie Dinmont Terrier Molly. Our daughter Sarah was born at home in Feb 2012.

I am a fierce breast cancer survivor (Diagnosed January 2015.)

I work for myself from home specializing in FileMaker Pro development. I've been lucky to work with clients from around the world.

Now that Sarah is 7 we are busy most days with some activity (dance, synchro swim, church). or school work. I help with the Godly Play program at our church.

At the moment, I am working on a cross stitch for Christmas and de-cluttering my home.

Likes

Dogs, Cats, Little People, The Outdoors, My kitchen when it is clean, cooking, being with family and friends, bright colours, jewel tones, batiks, and patterns, books that make you think, fog, lightening, poetry, The CBC, counted cross stitch, Fat Quarters, scrap cotton fabric, scrap flannel, DMC floss, tea, hot chocolate, postage stamps of animals, birds, flowers, art work; blank postcards.

Dislikes

Comment: I really enjoyed this swap, thankyou, starting with the brightly decorated envelope, the lovely card and best of all, your nice chatty note! It was a lovely little peek into your daily life and what's going on - thankyou for sharing! The bushfires are a worry over here, in most states. I ran into a friend boarding a plane for New South Wales, he was heading over there with a large group of fire fighters to help around Goondiwindi. He should be back in the next day or so, safe and sound! That aside, thanks for being an awesome swapper and 'Merry Christmas' to you and yours! Tracy

Emily! Your sister's wedding sounds like it was a blast! My husband and I are WWII reenactors and we've attended quite a few events all dressed for in our WWII finest --- though we have yet to be at a WWII themed wedding! HOW COOL! ~Gabi

Hi! I hope You're doing great! I once participated in one of your "short poem on a PC" swaps, it was lovely, but I missed the later ones, because I felt embarrassed to send hand-made PCs each time ... now I finally have some real PCs :) Please drop me a line when You host the next one! Best Wishes, Shreela.
