A few quick facts about me: :)
My name is Dee and I live in the northeast US. Married 52 years, I'm a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. :)
We live near the ocean and bay and enjoy visiting the beach to just "watch the water" or walk the boardwalk. I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I love animals and we have several beautiful indoor-only cats.
I enjoy watching the birds that visit the several bird feeders in our yard.
I prefer cards that go through the mail with writing and stamps and all the marks and dings on the card from traveling through the mail.
I'm a member of postcrossing and am enjoying the postcards I receive as well as choosing postcards to send to others.
I like all cards that people send, but when pressed to list favorites, I go with: cards from where you live as well as scenic, animals (especially cats), ocean/beach, lighthouses, boats, unusual or interesting places, poems and legends and humorous.
I enjoy items that have cats on them, such as calendars, notepads, stickers, bookmarks, figurines etc.
I buy cookbooks at thrift shops, copy the recipes I like for my notebook, then donate the cookbooks. I mostly like healthier low-fat, low sodium and/or low sugar recipes.
I really never intended to "collect" stickers, but I've accumulated so many different kinds, it's hard not to call it a collection. :) I use stickers for trades, handmade greeting cards and other paper projects. I like animal stickers, flowers & Hello Kitty - just about all kinds. I really like dimensional stickers of all kinds.
I like rubber stamping, paper crafting & card making. ATCs are something new to me and I've been looking at examples online. I think it's something I might like to try. As a newbie, I've tried a Pocket Pals swap and enjoyed it a lot. A new interest is art journals or junk journals and I have just started my first one. I have some ideas for other junk journals also, and needless to say, I can use any and all kinds of paper items for those!
Swap-Bot is always presenting me with new and interesting things! :)
I could never have enough: pretty paper scraps, rubber stamps, paper ephemera, vintage style items, old book pages, photos etc., ribbon, lace, pretty stickers or other embellishments of all kinds! Quite often I over-do it and collect more than I need of a particular item and need to trade.
Reading: When I get in a reading mood, I like mystery, detective, forensic type books and like authors like James Patterson, Janet Evanovitch, Tess Gerritsen, John Sandford & Patricia Cornwell. I belong to Goodreads.
TV shows: I like are mostly the same as the books I like... all the CSI shows, NCIS etc.
Music: I like most kinds of music, mainly 50s/60s rock 'n roll & country.
Can always use: postcards, notecards, notepads, paper items, etc.
Also enjoy items that feature: cats, birds, flowers, seashore, nature, scenes.
Enjoy vintage, retro, and ocean/beach anything.
I like magazines that deal with cooking, paper crafts, rubber stamps, card making, scrap booking.
I love handmade items of all kinds.
I'm a tea drinker and enjoy trying different teas.
Favorite holiday is Christmas. Favorite season, autumn... love autumn colors.
I have no objections to used items in good condition, I shop Goodwill and yard sales myself.
Note: I have no allergies, and don't dislike any particular scent or color or style.
No sweets please, I'm diabetic and I try to stay away from sugar when I can and a lot of artificial sweeteners don't agree with me.
