About Me

I have a brown weiner dog named Jackson, the second love of my life. I love roses and gardening. Send me grocery coupons and I will give you hearts!!!! I collect cows and anything weiner dog.

I like pink and sage green,but nothing cutesy.I am a big fan of pretty, love packages that smell good, were packed carefully and with style. I am pretty easy going in general, no need to stress yourself out if something isn't in the mail the day after partners are assigned, just don't flake completely. If I mess something up or space a rating, just drop me a note. Any mistakes are unintentional, I just forget sometimes.

I have been happily married to my high-school sweetheart for 24 years. Love at first sight, and every day thereafter. We live in Southern California, very close to Disneyland. I worked in major hospitals arguing with insurance companies trying to make them pay medical bills for their members for almost 20 years. I have very recently become disabled. For better or for worse, I'm home for awhile. I have 2 grown daughters, one living at home and one working her first job and one setting up her first apartment in San Francisco.

Favorite Music

The Beatles, B52's, Kenny Loggins, Blondie, Sparks, Social Distortion, Iggy Pop (in small doses), Brian Setzer, Lynard Skynard, Aerosmith, Oingo Boingo (really anything Danny Elfman), Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Favorite Movies

Harold and Maude, Defending Your Life, Shawn of the Dead, City Slickers, Arthur, Stranger Than Fiction. The Harry Potter series ( I can't decide if I have a crush on Dan Radcliffe or if i am just feeling compelled to mother him....)

Things I Would Love to Get

I love the color pink and things that are pretty and girlie. I generally don't like black or brown.

A hand-embroidered red work square or a red work pattern. (copied pages from coloring books sometimes work well as red work patterns)

A small doily or dish cloth that you made.

Return address labels (you know, with my name and address on them)

Doily patterns or patterns for thread crochet dresser scarves. (there are free patterns all over the web that you could print out and send)

A ball of cotton (dishcloth type) yarn or sock yarn. Red yarn or baby yarn for charity knitting. Red or blue DMC embroidery floss.

Goodies for a compulsive knitter, including yarn from your stash, as long as there is enough of it to be useable. I need stitch holders, double pointed needles, and one of those clicker things that count rows for you.

A spool of pretty 100% cotton thread. Scraps of wool or felted wool.

Hand made jewelry, I have pierced ears.

Seed packets for vegetables.

Send me grocery coupons and I will give you hearts!! (pretty much anything, no coffee or tea. I don't buy supermarket dog food but if you have a coupon for NutraMax dog food/Petco/Petsmart that would be great. Jackson loves Pupperoni and Beggin Strips. I don't have small children, so no baby stuff or toys, etc.)

5-inch charm squares in 100% cotton

Anything Daschshund (weiner dog).

Presents for Jackson the Daschshund.

Handwritten recipe cards, especially any recipe for food that is your family tradition.

Cute or interesting salt and pepper shakers

Pretty writing pens.

I have way too much of the following things: bath beads/salts and the like, stationery and note cards. I don't ever drink coffee or tea, ever. I have no interest in Dotee Dolls, Kawaii or ATCs.

Favorite Crafts

I knit, I quilt, occaisionally crochet. I love my garden. I love to cook and bake.

Comment: Didn't receive anything, it's long time to wait...
BookWormGurl rated for Emotional Purge Journal Swap on Mar 21, 2011
Comment: This is NOT a journal. I received a bunch of typed pages, folded up. You could have at least created a front and back cover and bound it up.

Comment: This is my very first swap on this site and I am VERY DISAPPOINTED that I have not received my package as promised. I take the time to send nice pacakges and feel that if you are not going to follow the rules as outlined, DO NOT SIGN UP FOR SWAPS!

TC rated for Heart String Quilt Block Swap #5 Dec 2010 on Jan 22, 2011
Comment: Sent late (Jan. 14), with no communication. Blocks were also not trimmed to size.
KrisWW rated for Sock Yarn Swap on Jan 21, 2011
Comment: I got the package, but it was posted nearly a week late with no communication, and I've still not had any reply to the message I sent. Plus, there wasn't a pattern with the yarn which was ordinary Patons and not LYS stuff. A bit disappointing.

Comment: Thank you so much for all the goodies =) I've never met a chocolate I didn't like (unless it has some hopeless filling inside), so the clown will have a very short life with me ;P

If you ever log on i'd like to make up the surprise your partner with your craft swap!

LizCupcake on Sep 7, 2011:

Crazy past year, I'd like to make it up to everyone with the swaps/tags I was unable to send. Message me & We'll figure out something to send each of you, & I'd like to deeply apologize.

TC on Jan 9, 2011:

Are you okay?

MrsAnnaSue on Dec 8, 2010:

Thank you, but you really shouldn't have! I love both the quilt patterns and the rhinestones and will put them to good use. Have a great Christmas and hopefully Santa will repay you for such goodness :)
