About Me

I think I am a pacifist, an idealist (versus realist), peace loving, tree hugging, spiritually grounded middle aged woman.

I am a happy mother of 5 (blended family) with 9 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Crazy! I'm 61 years old and I love life. I've been a scrapbooker, a stamper, a knitter and NOW .. a swapper!

My second husband is a retired Methodist pastor. Faith is pretty important to us. organized religion has been hurtful to many people. I prefer a faith that encompasses all walks of life, all faiths, all people. I am criticized for that. but that's my truth.

Favorite Music

Rock & Roll! Actually Im pretty diverse in my music listening but I do not like old fashioned country, nor do I like opera. I don't like rap.

A kid of the 60s and 70s, I like The Eagles, America, Dan Fogelberg, Journey, Styx, Aerosmith, Grand Funk Railroad, YES, Steppenwolf .. to name a few.
Todd Rundgren, Eric Clapton, Bruno Mars, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Maroon 5, seriously into most all types of music. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Dan Fogelberg, Foreigner, Journey, Boston, etc.

Favorite Television

This Is Us

Modern Family

Genius on PBS (waiting for the next season)

Call the Midwife

Stranger Things

Handmaid's Tale (currently on Hulu)

guilty pleasure: (all the) Real Housewives

Favorite Crafts

  • Knitting
  • Scrapbooking
  • Rubber stamping
  • Sewing (just starting again..) BUT MOST OF ALL:
    ~*~ Swapping - a whole new world. I love it.


Mary Engelbriet--anything! anything with hearts anything with angels retro stuff stars! peacocks (they are my "token.") 1960s, 1970s, 1980s

Christmas cactus African violets anything that climbs - ivy

favorite foods

ADDICTED TO: Chocolate

Party-related political stuff

Death or dying related
