Favorite Music

I love country music. Alabama is my all time favorite group and I would have to say that either Tim McGraw or Reba are my favorite individual singer.

Favorite Books

I read almost anything...I love a good Mystery/Thriller, but am unable to watch scary movies...figure that one out! Then after reading those thrillers I need to read a good romance to keep myself balanced.

Favorite Crafts

I am a self taught crocheter. I love to make Amigurumi animals. That is what most of my co-workers get for Christmas.

I also have just recently taught myself to make earrings and bracelets. I love the ability to look at different colored beads and see a design take effect.

About Me

I am a proud mother of a 18 year old boy. I have raised him on my own since he was born. I shouldn't say all alone...my mother has always been there to help me when needed.

I am very involved with the Boys Scouts of America. I have volunteered as a Committee Chair of a pack for the last 7 years. I love to come up with their monthly crafts and to see them grow into fine young boys.

I am very new to swaps, I have several co-workers that have been doing this for years. I have enjoyed seeing the items that they receive and would like the opportunity to get some great items as well. I chose to start with something simple and hope to get a life long friend out of it. I am a friend that will be your friend forever.

I am one of those people that are addicted to Facebook, I have to get online everyday to see what is going on with people.

Besides my son, the other loves of my life is my 3 dogs. I have 2 Toy Pomeranians and a Jack Russell. Update: I lost my Jack Russell November 8, 2012..she was 14. I lost one of my Pomeranians October 13, 2012.

I have worked retail for over 20 years, 16 of those years working for Target and most recent is for Michael's Arts and Crafts.

I love Angels, and Christmas. Snowmen and Santas are my favorite also.

I hope that I get the opportunity to be involved with several more swaps....

Favorite Television

My favorite kind of television is reality shows. I have to watch my Survivor!

Crochet squares:

I am currently working on a couple of different projects:

A traditional granny square blanket with black, gray and white, or any combination of those colors. 7" squares

A traditional granny square blanket in any shade of purples. 6" squares

10" x 10" can be any color.

I will also continue to need any color, any pattern for my hodge-podge blanket!

Hi! I'm really sorry, but for some reason the Rainbow of Grannies - October envie came back to me, over the weekend. I'm not sure what happened, since I sent out several envies just like that and this is the only one that came back... Anyway, I sent it back out, today. Hopefully it will arrive soon!

It took A MONTH for me to get your letter. I just received it today!! It looks like it got caught up in the postal system, with all types of marks on the envie. I'll be writing back this weekend :) :)
