About Me

I am the Mother of 4 grown daughters and the Grandmother of 12 beautiful children. My oldest Grandson is serving in the US Navy. My husband and I have retired in Southern Oregon. We have the opportunity to enjoy lots of wildlife since we live out in the country. I love gardening and flowers. Although so do the deer, so I have a fenced in garden. We are less than a mile from the beautiful Rogue River. I travel alot since all my daughters and grandchildren live in different states. But it is always nice to come back home.. I am a Libra, so I have a very hard time making decisions. I tend to weigh out everything before I make up my mind.

Favorite Crafts

I have always been a crafty person. I have tried them all from doll making, to sewing, quilting, painting etc. You name it I have probably made it. For the last 9 years my heart has been in paper crafting, scrapbooking, & card making. My 2006 New Year's resolution was to never buy another pre-made card. I have been pretty good at keeping that resolution. I am currently in a scrapbooking club that meets monthly. Also I am in 2 ATC clubs that meet monthly. We have 10 members and pick a theme each month and make the ATCs when we meet. I am very interested in making and swapping ATCs with both International and also across the states. Favorite craft supplies: I don't throw anything away, you never know what you can do with it.. .Paper any kind, I love it... .embellishments: metal, sparklies, rhinestones ribbons .Glitter .Embossing .feathers (my poor birds)LOL .chipboard (love it) .paint .my cricut .anything vintage .Stamps especially acrylic . Love nature stamps, mountains trees animals, flowers . Anything Navy since I have a Grandson that is now in the Navy.

Favorite Music

Favorite music. Well, I like almost all music. But my favorite is COUNTRY.. I have loved it since I met my husband in 1984. I can remember my Dad listening to Country music when I was in my teens and thinking "Who listens to this, Yukk!" I am sure he would be happy to know I listen to it now...

Favorite Television

I love all the reality shows... Sitcoms and talk shows. The way I am talking you would think I watch TV 24/7. Not really, but I do love my TV. The only thing I am not into is Soap Operas. I am always on the go. No time for the Soaps during the day.

Favorite Movies

I Love Comedy, Romance, Mystery & Musicalsl, Some action. We have a family tradition to go to the movies on Christmas Day, we usually go see a silly Christmas movie.

Favorite Books

Not much of book reader, I am more of a magazine reader. I subscribe to lots of crafting/scrapbooking magazines, and home & garden magazines.


I love animals and don't want to leave my pets out of my profile. I have 2 kitties, sister & brother "Crystal & Chinna". Crystal is a Maine Coon and Chinna is Siamese. I have a cockatiel named George, a parakeet named Rascal, 2 finches, & 3 chickens.

Likes & Loves

I love Photography, Thank goodness for digital cameras. I can take 500 pictures on a weekend trip. I love sparklies, bling, diamonds, rhinestones. Brooches or pins (especially vintage & flowers), Earrings, pierced..I love the colors, Pink & Black(together), most shades of Blue, and Red. I drive a bright Red "Vue". The majority of my wardrobe is pink or red. Love my pink berkinstocks..I garage sale almost every Friday, love to find a good bargain. Love flowers, especially lilacs & roses. I love animals, birds & chickens. Put me on a cruise ship and I am in heaven, love Hawaii. Weekends I am usually hanging out and shopping with my 2 sisters (we are fortunate to live in the same town). I love getting together for family gatherings. I Love spending time with my BFF's at "my second home" Our Local Scrapbook store. I love most anything that has "BELIEVE" or "ONE DAY AT A TIME!" on it. That is how I live my life One day at a time, and I Do Believe!! But most of all I love babies, the smell of a newborn baby is wonderful (I could just pinch thier little cheeks).


Not much I dislike. For sure I dislike wasps & snakes. I'm afraid of heights, I will not climb a ladder. So needless to say I would never skydive. Although my hubby got me up in a hot air balloon, and it was fabulous. I don't like dieting, but really should be doing that right now....LOL


Please note that I always send out my swaps by the ship date. So if you have not received your swap in a resonable amount of time, please PM me before rating. I review all my swap partners profiles to try to send them something they will really like. It doesn't take much to get a heart from me. Check out my profile and send me something you have put some thought into, I will do the same for all my partners. I rate usually within 1 day of receiving my swaps. I would appreciate a rating on swaps I send out to you.. . SWAPS I HAVE NOT RECIEVED OR AM WAITING ON LATE SHIPMENTS
