About Me

Hi ~ I am a 50 something single woman from USA/Massachusetts. I have two adult children ages 28 and 26. My daughter works for an feline rescue organization - she has four cats! I have one cat I adopted three years ago. Her name is Bootsie Bella - she is such a love. She runs to meet me at the door and follows me everywhere. My son is working in chemistry research in PA. I work full-time - I love my job! I work in higher ed - on the administrative side of things. I can't wait to get to work everyday.

My job and taking classes toward a Bachelor degree in English take up most of my time but I do manage to have fun and have some down time.

For fun the things I enjoy doing are: taking care of and decorating my home. I have a Parisian them going on in my kitchen. I bought a tea towel on a recent visit to France and am having it framed to hang in my kitchen - it is perfect! I love watching HG TV series on home renovating/buying and selling. My tastes in home lean towards contemporary in earth tones with colorful accessories to add interest. One of my favorite books is "Creating a "Sense" sational Home". I am working on my bedroom in a seaside cottage theme. I am loving how it is working out.

I am a coffee drinker (but not Starbucks!) and a tea drinker (I love Teavana). Drink tea at home mostly and coffee at work. I love chocolate (but not the dark chocolate - the one that's good for you lol). Martinis and marguaritas are my Friday night apps go to drinks and wine (Pinot Noir) with dinner.

I enjoy getting together with friends for dinner and/or drinks. I love to take pictures of food - lol. I enjoy seeing a great movie at the theatre or reading a good book. I need to concentrate on getting more exercise and moving more - I'm hoping the FitBit will inspire me to get there.

A big fan of the beach and all things seashore the warmer weather is my favorite. Not a big fan of snow but I love being indoors and watching it fall while I have a hot chocolate and the fire going.:)

I love photography and enjoy making post cards out of my pictures. I hope to someday soon buy a nice camera, take some photography lessons.

I recently bought a new sewing machine but haven't even opened the box yet! I like to sew household accessories and clothing that I can wear at home - I'd never wear it in public for fear it would fall apart! I like to crochet and am working on an afghan for my bedroom. I used to make all the floral arrangements for my home - I haven't done that in a long time. I have slipped in the crafting department - reading everything here I find I am not familiar with a lot of the items - ATC's, some of the flat objects with the funny names.... I do love Art and have come across a few websites that have inspired me to try making post card sized art. I hope to lessen my classload to make some time for creativity in my life :)

I practice my Catholic faith - I find a lot of strength in my faith; however I am not a "crazy" God lady or anything like that. I believe strongly in the power of prayer. I have had so many prayers answered. If you find yourself in need of prayer please email me and I will add you to my prayers.

I am so excited to have found this site - it gives me a great deal of joy to connect with a community that is artistic and creative and enthusiastic. I look forward to participating in all the exciting things going on!

Comment: I would usually allow more time before leaving a poor rating, but seeing as you haven't been on the site in almost 2 months and you've been partially suspended it seems safe to assume that you never did send out this swap. Maybe you've had a life event that has kept you from fulfilling your obligations... I really hope everything works out and that you are ok. If ever you feel like making it up I would be happy to change my rating.

Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard. We do have some things in common. I have made some postcards from my photos, but haven't done any lately. Too little time and too much to do. :)

Following up with my pms regarding the Happy Monday Note Card #5. First off, the first card was returned with a label that the address was undeliverable and I had asked if you had been receiving other swaps. I'd already sent you a resend that crossed in the mail with the one that was returned to me. My three pms have not been answered (you have not been logged on since April 18). If you have received one or both of the swaps, please rate me. If your address is incorrect on the system, then the mail was beyond my control.
