"Live like you are dying." I have now been treated for cancer FOUR times. And chemo has almost killed me twice. Enjoy every day of your life and your loved ones. The time you spend lamenting steals from your enjoying time. Thanks Bonnie
I haven't swapped for 2 years. Been taking care of a premie and sick family. I think it's Me Time. 2/2020
I'm a mom of two / gramma of three from Illinois- about an hour SW of Chicago.
I enjoy gardening, hiking, traveling-anywhere, sewing and crafting.
I collect things with Bees-my middle name is Bea.
I also love beads and cool fibers to make Dotee dolls.
I love anything Christmas- I have 15 artificial themed trees- plus THE REAL TREE- a live short needle to put vacation ornaments and things made by the kids on and the presents under. Snowmen, woodland santas and animals in plaids; anything santas, angels in white/beige and metallics. I HAVE A DOTEE TREE :)
I also love Walt Disney World- I can spend hours just looking at all of the detail that has gone into creating every attraction.
I have a thing for whimsical creatures- probably why I like Disney so much (my favorite is the characters/scenes on Splash Mountain-Braer rabbit, et al. Fairies(Tink), gnomes, brownies elves, unicorns, dragons, pixies, pegasus, sprites, sirens, nymphs, mermaids and mermen, etc.
I sew- both fashion and quilting (piecing, paper piecing, crazy); decorative painting ala D. Dewberry; beading-jewelry and crazy quilts/atcs; soft sculpture- dolls, animals; ornament making of all kinds.
I am pretty good at just about anything crafty except knitting and crocheting.
Colors- Reds, All blues, Jewel tones, soft greens, Red/purple/lime together
Please do not send food items or scents- due to cancer treatment I have a very restricted diet and can't handle many fragrances. Thanks
Please NO FB. It's not that I don't like them, some were just getting pretty heavy and expensive to send on and I would never be able to not send them on.

I never expect extras nor are they necessary for hearts but if any of you have any extra Die Cuts or embossed ATC sized backgrounds I sure would appreciate them getting sent my way.
