About Me

January 12, 2019. I still haven't been doing all the cleaning, clearing and organizing I want & I need to concentrate. BUT...I miss swapping, so I am doing a few flat swaps & electronic swaps too!

November 2018, I got another (5) with nothing written. Not even a thank you. In 2017 I rated for more than 3 swaps without one word. I just don't get it! But, when I looked at the profile of one of my raters, she didn't respond much either...even when HER rater has said her house burned down. Oh well....which brings me to this....... While hearts are certainly NOT expected for every swap, when either myself or even YOU go out of the way to include something really extra, a plain 5 with or without a "thank you" is truly a bummer. Makes me want to write that person and ask what was wrong with her their stuff. If no heart, how about a few words???

I CHECK & TRY TO FOLLOW PROFILES OF ALL MY PARTNERS, even if not a profile specific swap!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am lucky that my local post office lobby is open 24/7, so if I mark a swap as sent & it's a Sunday, the P.O. will send it out the next day, Monday morning or Tuesday if that Monday is a holiday!

> I am only doing USA Only swaps, I can't afford the postage, unfortunately, even to Canada. Not only that, the 2 low ratings I did receive were from Europe and because of postal reasons.
>

I love purple!!! All shades, They are all lovely! BUT, I don't ONLY like purple.

 

My husband Todd & I were married 26 years as of July 2018. No kids, but we have 2 four legged pups named Scooter & Oscar. Lately my time is spent making jewelry and eyeglass holder chains out of beads or wasting time on Facebook. I am making jewelry more now, check out my Pinterest above or Flickr

> I was a PASSIONATE scrapbooker, but I have cut down on that too. I've started cross stitching at night to keep me from grazing. Only with STAMPED patterns!

>

I love to give away stuff that I have. I have SO much scrapping stuff that I'm overwhelmed!

I COLLECT MAGNETS!!!

The more unusual the better.

I have all U.S. magnets shaped like the maps of each state already! I love unusual magnets, from everywhere, I have over 1000 & need more! > I am REALLY into purple. I don't like all things purple, & I don't only have purple things, but I do have a lot of purple. Not just "purple" either. There's lavender, wine, burgundy....you get the picture. Since I'm a scrapbooker, I work on my vacations, my dogs, parties, general life things. I make books for friends, & co-workers when they have special occasions. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ August 2013--We just adopted a rescue dog, his new name will be Oscar the Cocker. He is about 6 years old and very well trained and gets along well with Scooter who is a mini-poodle that loves to "kill" all the toys we give him. His fav is the Penquin from Madagasgar that talks. I found it at Target, but they don't sell them anymore!

Likes & Dislikes

I like :

Fabric remnants! I can't go near a fabric store without going to the remnant section. What I do with it, who knows? BUT, I have it if I need it! I've started wrapping gifts with them, tied with a nice lace ribbon & voila...beauty!

Bling, can't have too much of it, don't need glitter, have enough!

~~~~~shiny beads, not huge, but 1/4 inch & smaller; any color

Adhesive, to include the following:

~~~~~~Zots, ~~~~~~Elmer Glue Spots

~~~~~~HERMA refill adhesive things, both dots & squares--I prefer permanent NOT re-positionable. I use a lot & all kinds.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I DON'T care for:

Kawaii, or any Anime stuff.

I don't need anything that's going to collect dust, so no little figurines unless it's specific to the swap, please.

Food & Drink Likes & dislikes

FOOD LIKES:

PLAIN peanuts ~~~~ Pistacio nuts ~~~~Pepita's

pasta ~~~~ white sauces, ~~~~cheese, NO FETA

MOST vegetables

Flavor enhancers from the dollar stores that are powder & perfect for water bottles. NO LEMON please. coffee, ~~~~tea strong black tea is my favorite. ~~~~rum flavored teas

Champagne, ~~~

especially raspberry flavored & Almond too! Basically it's all I drink, to the point where it's my "calling card", along with the purple. I carry a bottle with me when I go visit anyone, not only for me to drink, but to be a good guest! Mama didn't raise no fool!

REDUCED SODIUM sunflower seeds everyday! They carry them at the 99cents store! Not the Dollar store, but only at 99cents stores. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

!!FOOD DISLIKES:!!

NUTS see list below, nutty flavors.

Green Tea, Humas, Catsup & Mustard

Lemon flavored stuff, Peanut butter,

NO nuts, to include:

Walnuts~Pecans~Almonds~Brazil nuts~Macadamia~Cocoanut~Hazelnut

I don't like nutty flavored anything, even though I eat plain peanuts, I don't like them in candy, bread or brownies. I don't like sardines. Don't like raw tomato, Lima beans, relish or ANY SPICY FOODS! I don't eat salsa, corn tortilla's, but I love Frito's. Go figure!

Favorite Books

Books? I have to read/listen to books on CD, I get them from the library. I can't read anymore...I have found that I have a slight case of dyslexia & I've been missing out on a lot of text. :)

I recently started listening/reading the Library Mystery series books. They are so cute!

I'm obsessed with JD Robb's Eve Dallas! I will only read them in order, I'm all caught up to Feb, 2017! I like Linda Lael Miller's time travel novels, Faye Kellerman & Jayne Ann Krentz! I love time travel, from now back to the past, like the move Kate & Leopold.

I love mystery/love stories and love stories with vampires.

PLEASE NOTE: I CAN NOT NOT NOT READ PAPER BOOKS, MUST BE CD FORMAT OR PLEASE DON'T SEND TO ME. THANKS! But, I do like to skim magazines!

Favorite Television

NO REALITY, except Food network or HGTV.
~ I watch all the CSI's/NCIS', I record everything I watch, I use to have 5 VCR's, but now I have one DVR. I still have 2 VCR's, just in case of a recording emergency! You can't always DVR "on demand" so I record it

Gastric Bypass

I had Gastric Bypass in August 2001. I've lost 102 lbs, I started at 220. If anyone wants to talk about it, please let me know. I'm pushing the surgery, & if you've had it & can't seem to get past a plateau, let me know! I can help you "move" that stuff!!
