About Me

I enjoy reading, writing, music, camping, fishing, and walking the beach. I have an older sister that has MS and she is my top priority. I have been taking care of her since I was 23- I'll be 52 in April.Needless to say, I don't have much time for making friends and going out for girls night like I used to before she got really bad but it's o.k. I have my social time at work and my coffee clutch at Cumberland Farms in the morning and of course my on-line friends and pen pals. I also have the best and most understanding man any woman could ask for! He's my true North in the storm I call my life and he always guides me home to my safe port- his loving embrace. May sound gushy but it's so true. I am one lucky woman!

Just so you know

Just so everyone knows, I am NOT an artist. I like swapping so I can learn different art forms and those that work well for me. All my swaps are sent on time and I rate the day after I receive because I don't have internet at home and do it from work.

Favorite Things

My favorite colors are teal, blue-green & earth tones. My favorite flowers are daisies. I love folk art, vintage items, country themes, primitive art, crock pot recipes, craft patterns and trying new things.

I Collect

I collect postcards, quotes,books, and dust in the winter-I hate to be cold! I can't pass up cute stickers, envelopes with designs, and colored pens.

I Dislike

The only thing I can think of that I dislike is white shirts/sweatshirts and black licorice.

Things I Love

I love animals, serene pictures, lists, crafts, stamped x-stitch, cooking/baking, birdwatching,swapping, art journal pages, collage,felt projects and my penpals.

Favorite Crafts

I like working with felt, making ornaments, bridal bouquets, up cycling, centerpieces, wreaths and door banners for the holidays. I would love to try Dottee Dolls and practice with watercolors. I'm hoping for a scroll saw for Christmas. :O)

Favorite Books

I like Henry David Thoreau, Steinbeck, George Orwell, Howard Fast and too many others to mention. For easy reading, I like Elin Hilderbrand, Anita Shreve, James Patterson and again, too many others to mention. I also like my magazines- Birds & Blooms, Create & Decorate, Country Living, Womans World and Psychology Today.

Favorite Movies

The American President, The Mirror Has Two Faces, The Prince of Tides, Bridges of Madison County, Shrek, Gorillas In The Mist- mostly drama.

Favorite Television

Animal Planet, Criminal Minds, NCIS, History Channel, Counting Cars, American Pickers, River Monsters, Discover, Storm Stories and Too Cute.

BluGinhm rated for Thanksgiving Matchbox on Nov 17, 2015
Comment: I love the little matchbox you sent - it's lovely! They are really small, aren't they? But you did a great job! And thanks for the extras - all will be used or treasured! It's funny - I couldn't help it, I opened the matchbox before I read your letter. For one instant, I thought "what in the world are these?" Then I realized I recognized them, but couldn't remember what they were! I love nasturtiums! One of my favorite "from-seed" flowers! The other is zinnias, and my favorite not from seed is peonies. It probably all has to do with remembering these three flowers in both of my grandmother's gardens! Thanks so much for sending all of this my way! I love the prayer, and I can't wait to plant the seeds!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! It's the first one I've ever done. I can't wait to plant seeds again! Enjoy the holiday season! Annette

Response: You are quite welcome!

Comment: What a super cute seal postcard! I do love animals greatly. The American President is a good film which I haven't watched in years so I might do that this evening. I can relate on needing to organize my craft supplies as well. Wishing you all best
Response: I love them too-so darn cute! Once in awhile I see them swimming through the canal. So glad you liked it!

Even though I've been doing this for awhile, I just figured out how to edit and sort my profile and that this is a message column! Good grief I need computer classes! Also, thank you Angie The Artist for your kind words! I do swaps for my own pleasure and I know you can't please everyone but I try. My sister is first and foremost.

AngieTheArtist on Oct 20, 2012:

Hi, I just wanted to tell you that I am proud of you for putting your sister first in your life when she needed you. Nothing can ever replace a human being. Family should be there when times are touch.
