About Me


PLEASE NOTE: I only go to my P. O. Box once a week, on Saturday, so all my ratings are done on Saturday or Sunday πŸ‡πŸˆπŸ‰πŸŠπŸ‹πŸŒπŸπŸŽπŸ’πŸ‘πŸ

I love crafting, cooking, baking, reading, hiking, animals, history, science, art, art history, ballet, weaponry, marksmanship,..just to name a few. I don't watch TV and haven't in 15 years...it is just not like it used to be.

ANIMALS..... I love all animals..they are majestic, beautiful, interesting, funny, adorable and even scary...some of my FAVS are: cats, bats, snakes, birds, otters, octopi, lizards, platypus, horses, kangaroos, dogs...I HATE animal cruelty, irresponsibility, neglect, disrespect. I hate zoos and the circus.

THEMES I LIKE:::: astronomy, vintage, cooking, abstract, architecture, geometrical, impressionism, fractal, retro, sepia, roaring 20's, Tudor, medieval, floral, nature, cats, birds, insects, bees, butterflies, botanical, tea party, garden party, Parisian, Italian, Greek, Asian..but not limited to..

I appreciate (ANYTHING) that is not on my dislike list. This site is NOT about pleasing everyone, all the time, I know, but it IS about being conscientious and courteous.


anything rude, bullying, gothic, horror, "pagan" , demonic, foul language, sports, current celebs/entertainment, fairies, magic, cultist, dark, cutsie/juvenile type themes, ..Disney, Andy Warhol and similar, sexually suggestive, pin-up girl type, nudity, violence, religion bashing, vulgar or sarcastic...please don't😣

Please don't send tiny bits and pieces of paper, cutouts, confetti, sequins, etc. I have no way to store them

....please no food or drink or cosmetics, no EASTER theme and no SANTA CLAUS...I love Christmas just no Santa.

If i think you didn't send what the swap called for, and i message you about it, PLEASE don't bite my head off. (I will cut and paste nasty messages from you with your rating, where you cannot delete or edit and so all can see) Tell me where I'm wrong, I WANT to give a good rating. Some hosts don't make it clear about what is acceptable in their swaps. Why do some people join a specific swap, but think they can send something else??? If we run into issues, we can work them out WITHOUT ANY drama. I promise, I'm flexible. All I expect is what the swap says to send. BTW, I make mistakes, too, and will always make my swaps right. Lets have fun!!

Favorite Crafts

Comment: Belated, belated thank you for the beautiful, autumnal Connecticut covered bridge card and for your suggestions for places to visit! The two times I rode Amtrak up/down the East Coast, I was blown away by the natural beauty outside my window when traversing CT :) And I also have a fondness for it, since Who's the Boss?, my favorite sitcom, is set in Fairfield (although the facade of the Bower household is in Rye, NY, and of course, the series was shot in LA). Fun, sad fact: The summer of my junior year of high school, my family roadtripped up the East Coast on a mini-college visit tour, including Fairfield College and Yale University (we didn't pencil in time for the art gallery T__T). We stayed a few minutes from Mr. Twain's House Museum but didn't have time to visit! Ahhhh >_< I've wanted to do a New England/East Coast literary tour ever since. I hope we both get to visit soon!

Response: Hahaha steak lovers of America Unite.
Comment: Thanks for the PC...you're right, it's not my cup of tea either, lol! As to vacations, we will be heading to Orange Beach, AL for the kids grappling U.S. National competition in July, and will probably stay 2 nights so we can hit the beach the day after. Otherwise no plans til this fall. We are hoping to go to the mountains and stay a week in Pigeon Forge if finances allow. Hope you have a great summer!
Response: Thank you for the nice comment and for rating
