About Me

I am a happy mother of 5 (blended family) with 9 grandchildren, one more on the way; and 2 great-grandchildren. Crazy! I'm 63 years old and I love life. I've been a scrapbooker, a stamper, a knitter and NOW .. a swap-botter!

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 Crafts

  • Swapbot -- mainly ATCs, ATC jams, and 9LP
  • Knitting
  • Scrapbooking


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

I like decorating my desk for the holidays each month. so I like the seasons and the holidays.




favorite flowers & house plant

snapdragons, hollyhocks, lily of the valley, black-eyed susan, clematis, violets, daisies, moss roses, lilacs

Christmas cactus African violets anything that climbs - ivy


Party-related political stuff

Death or dying related

I don't like tea.

I don't use coupons.

I prefer to NOT receive photocopies of your previous work.

Comment: Hi Anne! I love the purple ATC you created. The flapper is so beautiful with her lace and lavender beads.. and even a purple stamp! :-) I think the combination of your three favorite colors would be fantastic! I may make something for myself with them :-) I'm so sorry to hear that your sister had cancer 2x. I am sure you made her beautiful items to make her smile all the way through. Would love to see a picture of your hair! I have never died my hair.. even though there is gray creeping in. Maybe if I do start dying it, I will be as brave as you! Thank you again!

Comment: Thank you for the kiwi ATC. For your next swap, please contact your partner BEFORE the swap ends to let them know you will be sending late. Only takes a minute, and saves a poor rating.

Comment: I really like the ATC. Thanks for it and the extra goodies. I remember once when I moved. I lost the house in the big "D" Moving was not fun. But, it's better than living in your car.
