Updated 4-3-13 I LOVE CREATING!! I have been sewing since I was a little girl. I will try anything from clothes to slipcovers. I am making recycled wool items currently, I also crochet. Mostly hats from cotton yarn for little kids.
I love photography, I enjoy taking pictures of people and my surroundings I have been known to pull off the road to take pictures of animals. sunsets, or interesting architecture.
I love making cards from recycled items, paper, pictures from magazines, and homemade paper designs. I am always up for a challenge and new ideas. I have recently started working with felt and make all kinds of things. I collect all my wool and felt it myself. I also love to collect buttons. Interesting shapes and vintage ones. I love Valentines and hearts or any kind. Can't wait for Valentines Day. I love to cook. I love to try new recipes and also make up a lot of my own. Would love some new recipes! My favorite colors are red, royal blue, soft greens, and deep purple. I also like vintage fabric prints.
Family, friends and God are very important to me.All three keep me happy and healthy. I am a mom of three wonderful grown children, a son and two daughters and two sons-in-law. I have one grandson, who is almost 3, whom I adore. I have a wonderful husband of 36 years. I live in a rural farming area near State College, PA. where I work with children who are emotionally challenged, in a special school.. I have great friends and love getting together with people to share creative ideas. I ama reitring from school this spring!!
The Lorax,Titanic,. Steel Magnolias, Shindler's List, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, The Help, and The Long Walk Home, Puss in Boots, and Christmas movies. I also love to watch National Geographic documentaries.
I have been swapping for a little over a year now and have had a lot of fun and received some really awesome creations and items. I have also had some negative experiences with people with very legalistic attitudes which really puts a damper on the fun I understand following the rules, but it can get pretty ridiculous at times. I am in this to have fun and do my best swapping, so if you get something from me that doesn't suit you, just message me. Rude comments are not helpful.
I love all kinds of music. I mostly listen to Bluegrass, Old Timey, Christian gospel, Swing, County Swing, and Celtic. But I love to dance to old rock and roll and country. I love going to hear live groups. My husband is a musician and is in a Bluegrass band so we go to Bluegrass Festivals every summer.
Homemade designs or handmade paper is very special. I love vintage fabric prints, especially from the 50's and 60's,postcards from states and other countries, favorite colors are cobalt blue and true red. But I love color in general, so if you are sending me something color related, just have fun with it. Fabric scraps, wool felt scraps BUTTONS: LARGE ones would be great. also vintage, interesting shapes, and colorful. NO white shirt buttons. blue glass bottles, small candles,tea and coffee, beads, especially glass and ceramic, interesting sticky notes,rubber stamps mailing labels,vintage note cards, scarves,snowmen and hearts.
