About Me

Hello fellow swappers! Let me introduce myself. My name is Sherry, but I got the nickname Churlann from my kids a long time ago. They thought it was cute so it stuck with me, I have been retired from teaching elementary kiddos, in an emotional support program, for almost 5 years now! I still miss it, but I love having freedom to do other things that I love. I am Gramma to two little boys 8 and 5, to my oldest daughter. And a granddaughter 3 and grandson 1 who belong to my youngest daughter and her husband. They are my greatest joy. I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband, and our little Beagle mixed pup, Angel, We live in a rural farming area. We're not farmers but love having a garden and raising some chickens. I also spend a lot of my free time sewing just about anything. Right now I am working on a a new slip cover for a living room chair to go with my new sofa. But I sew for my grandkids, friends and myself. I alsi have a little shop on Etsy called CreeksideFibers, where I sell recycled wool items such as mittends and purses and Christmas ornaments And various other itmes like baby shoes, shopping totes and such. My hobbies include hiking, photography, sewing, crocheting and and reading. Sewing is on the top of my list though. I am also working on a block quilt for our spare room where my grandsons sleep when they visit. I also love swapping postcards, letters, small surprise packages, buttons, and photo cards of anything. I love to read books but mostly in the winter. I love to cook and try new and interesting recipes. I have been gluten free and sugar free for over a year now and feel so much healthier for it. So if you are sending me recipes, keep that in mind. Thanks. I have three grown children, and even though they aren't at home anymore, I still spend time with them whenever I can. We are a very close family. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 45 years and we are happy happy happy, to this day.

Favorite Music

I like almost all genres of music. I guess opera and modern jazz would be my least favorite. My favorite types are Bluegrass, Old Timey, Old Country music. My husband is a musician, playing dobro and guitar, He has played in several Bluegrass bands. He is currently playing with a singer songwriter from our area that is very talented. We go to at least three Bluegrass Festivals every summer and go to many concerts that are local. But I have all kinds of music in my collection which is vast. Anything from Adele to Merle Haggard.

Favorite Movies

I love to go to the movies and also watch a lot on Amazon Prime and Netflx in the winter. I like English drama and comedies. I like mysteries and detective movies.too. Not crime shows though. Recently watched Queen of Oowego, and Life of a King. Both about youth Chess players. I take my grandsons to the movies a lot too. I love going to movies on $5. Tuesdays!!

Message to swappers

Let me know by message if you have not received my swap. I will make it right!! I would hate to get a low rating for something that didn't show up. I am faithful at sending. I love reading the notes in my swaps. I learn so much about people. So if you send me something I will definitely read it. Also, sometimes I get mail that I can't read the handwriting. That is frustrating. Thanks for being careful and taking your time.

Things I love to collect

Favorite colors: I love reds, and royal blue. Not necessarily together. I also love sage green. Vintage fabric prints, especially from the 50's and 60"s. brightly colored cotton blend prints and wool fabric scraps. Note and greeting cards: vintage, old fashioned, handmade, artsy or photography cards. Postcards: vintage, black and white, art themed, countries,, animals, birds, musicians, quotes. Pretty or interesting stamps on my mail. I am collecting them for a project I found on pinterest. Blue glass bottles, especially little ones, chicken themed items, handmade potholders, little stuffies, especially sheep and owls. I love receiving other peoples creations.
