About Me



I'm 55, married to a great guy, a mom and a grandmother of one adorable 6 year old boy and one super cute 3 year old little girl!.

Most people would tell you that I'm generally a nice person. However, I will not be bullied by anyone. I will not engage in any drama. I'm too old for childish games. All I want from this site is to allow my creative side to shine and enjoy myself. I have no hidden agendas.

I live in a busy town in Northern Virginia, very close to Washington, DC. I've lived in this area for most of my life. I love this being close to DC for all it offers, like the Smithsonian Museums, Monuments, and other historical things.

I have a 9 year old Yorkie named Ginger. She's an amazing companion. I also have a 6 year old Pacific Parrotlet named Pekoe. He's a beautiful light blue color.

  • Handy Manny is my guilty pleasure. I totally love this show! I just love it because it gives kids a positive way of solving problems.

Favorite Crafts

I am not doing much crafting these days, but I am crocheting like a fiend. Most of my blankets are given away as gifts or are donated to various charities.

I enjoy rubber stamping and scrap booking, too, but admittedly, I'm not very good at either.

Another 'craft' that I enjoy is pen-palling. I love writing letters and getting to know new friends via snail mail!

Response: Thank you for ruining a 5 year perfect rating. I appreciate your kindness so much. Since you didn't bother to contact me before you ever so kindly rated, I didn't have a chance to resend. Again... thank you so much for being such a kind and compassionate person. I would offer to resend, but since the holidays are over, there is no point. Enjoy your time at swapbot and once again, thank you for ruining my perfect rating.

I was looking through old swaps, and one of the best ones ever was "Snark, Snark... Double Snark!" journal and the "Stalker" journal. Wayyyy too funny, I need to pull these out and re-read them!!

cbpoole on Mar 30, 2013:

I just came back about a week ago and decided to do a few swaps. :) Wasn't sure if you still swapped on here or not! :D We had some good ones!

cbpoole on Mar 25, 2013:

BOO! Wasn't sure if you still came on here, so just thought I would say HI!
