Taking a brief break during the holidays. May do a few swaps but you won't see me online as much during this time. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks for reading my profile. I am inspired by the fabulous artwork I get in swaps to try new crafts and techniques to become a better artist myself. Thank you for the awesome art you have made - I feel very grateful to be the recipient of such wonderful work. There is a lot of talent here at swap-bot!

I finally got brave and put my art on Flickr. And I put it all out there - the good and the not-so-good. But hey, I am ok with the not-so-good - practice makes perfect and I am still learning and growing! I will try not to post anything before I mail it at least but if you want to be surprised, just don't look ahead of time just in case. :)

I think I am pretty easy to please but if you have any doubts or questions, please feel free to PM me. :=D. If you sent a swap and I did not rate you, please contact me. The only reason I would not rate you is that I have not received the swap. After a fair amount of time, I will always contact you about sending it before I give a less than 5 rating.

If I send you a swap and I don't see a rating from you in a week-10 days, I will ask if you got my swap. I am happy to resend any swap that got lost in the mail. Please contact me if you are expecting a swap from me but do not get it.

Favorite Books

Reading is one of my favorite things to do ever since I learned how. I love cozy mysteries, especially British ones. Also read some sci-fi, chick-lit, historical fiction & just plain fiction. I read whatever my mood dictates and lately I am on a YA dystopian kick and an occasional biography. And I love non-fiction animal books. I'm not into vampire, horror or paranormal books - that stuff creeps me out! And I can only take romance books (unless they're more chick-litty) in small doses (LOL). I am a member of bookcrossing (dancing-dog) and bookobsessed. I have an online wishlist I can point you to if you're interested!

Favorite Music

I like a lot of different types of music - like classical, piano music of all sorts, Scott Joplin rags, 60's folk music, the Beatles, most rock, pop & jazz, mid-eastern, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian choro, Celtic, new-age, oldies. Not too crazy about most rap, hip-hop, opera, heavy metal or country but I try to be open-minded!

Favorite Movies

I love the original Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music. My favorite drama of all time is Schindler's List. I'm also a Disney & Pixar fan.

Favorite Television

I almost hate to admit it but I like a lot of the crazy "reality" shows on now particularly those that involve self improvement or improving people's conditions. My current favorite is Long Lost Family. And this is nerdy but I love game shows. I don't watch a lot of TV but when I do it may also be an animal, home, garden, fashion, DIY or food show or possibly Cops or Forensic Files.

Favorite Crafts

I like to do crafty stuff now and then and sometimes make book strings. I also play around with making jewelry. I enjoy making ATCs and appreciate anything I can use to make them. It takes me a while to get into a craft - I have tried matchboxes and whimsey jars and do keep my eye out for something new to try once in a while. Looking forward to trying flip books or zines soon. And on my bucket list is taking classes on drawing, painting with water colors and pottery.

About Me

I recently retired and enjoying having more free time. I still volunteer dog-walk at a local animal shelter and am part of the cleaning crew at a cat rescue once a week. I also help out at an equine therapy center! (I love all animals). I have two German Shepherd mixes (rescues) and walk and play with them all the time. I try to do some art, reading, dancing (although not much lately) and gardening in my spare time. I've just started taking yoga and am enjoying it. I also love to travel and wish I had more time and money to see the world. :=D

Other Likes/Dislikes:

I love: Food: almost anything but nothing too spicy and please, no raisins. Love most coffees including flavored coffees & cappuccino-type mixes. Love most teas although I prefer black teas over green or herbal. Love fruity teas. Don't like licorice/anise tea or anything heavily cinnamon. I also love hot cider and hot chocolate.

Candy: love anything chocolate. Fond of tropical fruit flavored Lifesavers. Don't care for gummy or sour candies.

Colors: blues and greens and I favor cool colors over hot.

Girly stuff: light flowery scents but nothing too fruity, charm or beaded bracelets, kind of have an obsession with lip gloss. Have pierced ears & like small, delicate-looking earrings.

Playthings: hmmm... like jigsaw puzzles when in the mood, trivia games but can never get anyone to play with me, crossword puzzles, word games.

Other:
Would love to receive art pens, sharpies, fancy brads, pretty papers, unusual looking ribbons, embellishments to use on ATCs, stickers, small pieces of fabric, double-sided craft tape, washi tape, ATC blanks & backs, address labels. Pretty much anything you send I can find a use for.

I like things with flowers and/or dragonflies, garden or nature themes, dog-related items, dance-related items, handmade bookmarks, fun socks and miniature sizes of things (not dollhouse stuff, just little things).

Do not like: super glittery, blingy stuff (a little goes a long way with me), blood, guts & gory stuff, neon colors.

Comment: This was really a fun swap-it was a little help to have a choice of backgrounds to work with-better than staring at a blank page or blank circle! Love the colors you used-one last look at summer. The leaves are turning-colder outside-but do love fall! Thanks for the people and map extras-thanks for sharing!

Comment: I can see how much work went into this beauty, MJ...and I thank you for every minute you spent! It's adorable (I'm a cat lady), and my cats actually do say to me a few times a day, Where is the party? LOL...there's only dinnertime...that's the party they are seeking. Thank you for making and sending something so cute!
