About Me

Hi 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 live in a small rural farming community called Pennsylvania Furnace.
I have been retired from teaching elementary kiddos, in an emotional support program, for 8 years now!
I am a Gramma to 7 beautiful children, ages range from 14 to 1. I live with my husband, and our cat, Maybelle. We lost our little Beagle, Angel, last Fall.We miss her everyday. Maybelle has been so entertaining. She is getting big and loves to explore the outdoors. We love having a garden and raising some chickens. We have 12 Barred Rock hens that bless us with eggs every day. My newest hobby is kayaking, although not in January when I am writing this. I got a kayak for my 70th birthday at the beginning of the pandemic. It was the highlight of our pandemic summer! My whole family are all photographers. My favorite subjects are landscapes from my kayak, animals, old barns, anything interesting that catches my eye, and of course all those grandkids too!

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 low sugar for six years 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 48 years and we are happy to this day. Sam retired last summer and it's been going great.

Favorite Music

I love music,!! I have a huge collection of CD's. My grandson wanted to count them all one day when he was here. And there over 600!! Some of them are signed by the artist. My favorite genres are Bluegrass, Old Timey, Old Country, old Rock and Roll, and some jazz and western swing. We live to go to Bluegrass festivals and live concert at small venues, not the Megatron ones.

My hobbies and interests

I have so many hobbies. I love creating beauty onto the world. Some of my favorites are... Sewing, crocheting, needle felting, felt applique, photography, kayaking, reading books, collecting music CDs, listening to those CDs all the time, walks in the woods, and creating with my grandkids. Also watching movies and documentaries, doing house projects, traveling to new places, visiting thrift and antique stores, collecting bells and little thermometers. I love spending time with family and close friends too.

Message to swappers

PLEASE...don't forget to RATE when you receive a swap. I love reading your comments too. I don't archive until rates are done both ways.

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.

Things I love

POSTCARDS: VINTAGE, black and white are my favorite. Art themed, animals, and birds, patriotic, inspirational quotes, handmade ones too. I love to get postcards from other countries, blank or written on. I accept all pcs with love 😘.

Comment: Thanks so much for the fun postcards. It must be great to go to the Amish community to buy all the fresh veggies, fruit, sweets and flowers. Would be fascinating, too. I remember going to a Hutterite farm when I was a kid living in Manitoba and I thought I'd gone back in time. Cathy
