About Me

Hello! My name is Tami and I live in Northern California in Santa Rosa. I have been married 33 years and my husband just retired from law enforcement about a year ago. We have three daughters. My oldest is 31 and is a consulting teacher (she teaches teachers how to teach), my middle daughter, who is 30, is an attorney in Manhattan in New York, and my youngest, 29,works as a 911 dispatcher two evenings a week and has two of the cutest little daughters one could ever hope for! :-) My husband and I spend a lot of our free time with our granddaughters and love them to pieces. They are 3 and 2.

Favorite Music

I like all kinds of music, but especially enjoy country. I love listening to hymns. I like a variety of music.

Favorite Television

I enjoy reality tv shows. And I really enjoy watching football and baseball! Well, the San Francisco teams.

  • I love watching the San Francisco Giants play!!

Favorite Crafts

I love to stamp and make cards. I love papers and stickers of any kind. The Stampin Up catalog is my favorite place to shop! Ribbon and Stickles are also on my list of favorites. Other favorite things are:

  • Handmade cards

  • Stickers

  • Decorative papers

  • Images stamped in black ink

  • Anything sparkly to use on cards

  • Martha Stewart crafting supplies

Favorite Books

I love true crime and love the author Ann Rule.

I love the rain, and I love walking on the beach (not in the rain, though!) :-)

I love the scent of lavender. I love polka dots!

I am looking forward to doing some swaps and getting to know other people.

I always rate, usually the day I receive your swap item. If you don't receive something from my end, please PM me right away so I can re-send.

spotteddogs rated for RSC - Hearts on Jan 28, 2020
Comment: This card is ADORABLE! The second I pulled it out, it reminded me of Liberty of London fabrics (which I love). I have had some floral heart stickers made for Liberty that I haven't used yet as I didn't have anything Liberty worthy - until now! I am very lucky to have one of my favorite card makers (and favorite people) as my partner! Spoiled.
Response: You're so sweet, Janet!! Thank you very much. I was feeling so insecure about that card! Thanks for your kind and generous words!
