About Me

I have been married for 24 years and have 2 children, a girl age 22 who went to school full time and got her bachelors degree after 3-1/2 years, while working full time at the police station. She graduated from the academy and is now a police officer, and a boy age 20 who is into video games, and keeping up with current news and knowledge in general, and just started his third year of college and is interested in becoming a mechanical engineer. My husband collects any type of unusual lighters, keys and clocks, and he just got a Ninja coffee maker which he's loving. I like to garden, veggies, herbs and flowers, and spend time outdoors in the warm months. I keep very involved with my family and friends and enjoy writing letters, crafting and searching and playing on the computer. I like to cook and try new recipes. We enjoy backyard campfires and camping also. I love stationery, labels and pens. I like anything cooking or craft related. There's not much I don't like! I love to bargain shop, and dollar store and craft shopping, magazines, tea with caffeine (not coffee), Halloween & Christmas, summer and hot weather, hand lotions, lip balm, cool websites, retro, food, nuts, chips & dips, and I love handmade items. I love anything different and unusual, "off the wall" and out of the ordinary! I don't have a favorite color-love them all! I do prefer bold, earthy, bright colors over pastel colors. We have cats and a dog named Chewie (aka Chewbacca), that is spoiled and loved. He is a pug/boston terrier mix, and brindle colored.

Favorite Music

I like many kinds of music, but I especially like classic rock, oldies and the older disco music. I like lots of different kinds of music from Aerosmith, The Cars, Elvis, Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, and any older rock to easy listening and Motown music, to Maroon 5, Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert and Katie Perry. Basically I like anything from the 60's until now. I grew up with music and have been to alot of concerts.

Favorite Movies

I don't have a favorite movie, but like to watch comedy and dramas. I usually don't care for action-packed movies. I also like mysteries, thrillers, and horror.

Favorite Television

Grey's Anatomy, Dancing with the Stars, Ellen, The Talk, Splitting Up Together, This is Us, Superstore and Fresh off the Boat.

Favorite Crafts

I love simple and general crafts.I like to go to craft and stationery sites on the computer. I like to make computer and paper crafts. I like to print stationery, address labels, enclosures, cards etc. I'll try almost any craft. I love to crochet. I like "off the wall" crafts. Love to make recycled crafts. I really enjoy receiving handmade items, they are my favorite! I can always use embellishments, lace, "do-dads", pens that write in different colors and Sharpie markers.

About Me

My husband and I take care of his elderly Mom at home. We also took care of his Dad, but he recently died in May at the age of 92. My kids help out a lot too. Mom likes cats, flowers and plants, crocheting, sewing and playing games on the computer.

About Me

I use recycled items for shipping such as boxes, envelopes, etc.

Comment: This is the second time I have received this swap from you, and definitely the second time you really outdid yourself! I had SO much fun going through everything, I can't believe you put so much effort into each item. Keep this part a secret, but I was just in a big item profile-based swap, but I found far more things I liked & were related to my interests in your swap (shh!!)! I think everything in your box was just awesome, & I really, really am indebted to your generosity. Hopefully you will be my partner next!!
Response: Thanks for the rating and I'm glad you had fun with everything!

Comment: WOW !!!! What a package !! Thank you so much. You sure found all my favorites. The X stitch items are exactly what I do. Just finished pillow cases with little piggy's on them. The AVON jar is great. It will go on the shelf with the others AVON. The silly things made me chuckle. I used to eat Vienna Sausages way back when I was "really" poor and they were cheap. The coloring book is perfect for me and I've never seen cards like these. Really cute. Thank you so much for every thing. Loved it all.
Response: I grew up on Vienna Sausages as a kid! I'm glad you had fun with the package! Thanks for the rating!

Comment: Thank you so much for thoughtful swap. It smelled very heavy of cigarette smoke though. Edit - I'm not sure exactly what the scent is but there's a strong odor on every item that doesn't smell pleasant which is unfortunate because you included so many wonderful things. I have everything trying to air out now.
Response: Thank you for the rating. I don't know how it smelled of cigarette smoke, as we have a smoke-free house because we take care of my husband's elderly parents who are 88 and 91. I do put my swaps together outside, where we have a chiminea, fire pit, and bbq grill. I'm sorry.
