Favorite Music


my favorite music is classic rock..beatles .stones, doors, ledzepplin, heart, and crosby, stills, nash, & young. i also like adult alternative, world music and new age/zen. love irish/celtic/bagpipes.

if we are in a gift exchange swap i would love a cd mix....maroon 5, adele, dave matthews, and something that you like.

About Me

. . i live in the beautiful pacific northwest about halfway between portland and the pacific ocean.i have a great husband , 2 adult chldren and 5 grandkids (3 boys, 2 girls) i love doing things with them...crafts,reading stories and going to the zoo or the beach.

i love good food, unique recipes, cooking and baking. i collect vintage cookie cutters and love most anything vintage.i love dark chocolate especially with chile...a hint of spice.

. i love meeting new people and traveling.

i like all colors..muted browns and greens, but also love vibrant pinks,purple and turquoise

gardening is my latest passion...both flowers and vegetables. i would love to get seeds through swapbot. . i recycle as much as i can and like to use throwaway objects for my projects if possible. i love garage sales and going to thrift stores. i love fountain pens and calligraphy pens.

Favorite Crafts

i have done knitting ,crocheting ,applique, sewing,scrapbooking, and jewelry making... .but i have given all that up for altered art. i love anything to do with paper...making handcrafted paper, atc's , bookmarks, cards, and tags. i belong to several creative groups, and love to go to workshops and classes to learn new techniques. i am currently doing an altered book, an art journal and working on several cookbooks for gifts. i am also making a book of quotes....so if you have a favorite one feel free to send it along.

postcards.....i'm not too picky but i do love art cards and AD cards!!

Favorite Books

i love to read, mostly bio's, and non fiction .

Favorite Television

i like to think i don't watch a lot of tv...but i do like csi, criminal minds and without a trace. i also like documentaries...and locked up abroad.

wish list

i would love to get unique paper and papercrafting items. i love handmade paper. Since i do lots of different kinds of projects. color is not as important as texture. i like interesting magazine pictures and words that i can use for altered art. Buttons and trims are always useful. i would also like to get die cuts. Do you have leftover yarn or fibers? I have recently been using them in some woven bags I am doing. Any color or type will do

i love vintage clothing , buttons, scarves,aprons, and hats. would love to get copic markers or water color pens. recycled (or new) copies of any stampington magazines would be great..

i love skin cream and oils with a light fresh scent. i love jewelry, especially earrings and chunky bracelets. postcards.... i'm not picky, but my faves are quotecards, pc's of people, and art cards.


sadly, i've been flaked on. i understand that life sometimes gets in the way of being a good swapper. but...i do not understand how or why someone wouldn't just send you an email to let you know what's going on.
