I am so sorry that I have been late on some recent swaps. I have been an member of swap bot for a long time, this is unacceptable to me. I will be cutting back on swaps and doing only one or two a month. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 8/18/13 I have contacted R who gave me a one but have not heard from her.
as of 9/11/13 she has not swapped since 2009 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Favorite Crafts

Crocheting. Right now I am crocheting for charities.

Atc's I was addicted to them but have slowed down a bit

Home made Post cards.

Greeting cards, (my feeling is that any one can go out and buy a card , try making one )

About Me

I am 63 and have 2 grown sons and a beautiful granddaughter and a grandson with the biggest blue eyes

I have lived in Pittsburgh all of my life.

I love to travel and have been to Puerto Rico, Canada, Italy and Hawaii. I have also been on a cross country road trip.

I had bariatric surgery (Realize Band) in March of 2009 and have lost 94 pounds so NO SUGAR for me

I collect spoons, thimbles

and of course pretty papers and yarn. My pretty paper collection is over running my craft room. Please don't feel the need to send me any extra paper. But if you have one of these die cut machine, I would love some die cuts

I love to cook and adapt recipes into more healthy ones. I love to read cookbooks. I don't cook like i used to since I live alone and can't eat that much any more.

Favorite Books

I love to read . I love fiction, spy thrillers, medical mysteries. My faves are James Patterson, Nora Roberts, Stephen King ,Dean Koontz and JR Rains

I just got a Kindle and love it

I also love listening to my Kindle while crocheting.


I don't like Kawaii and those sorts of things I don't have them therefore, I can not make anything with them.

About Me

I am mom to Michael and Jeff Nana to Summer and Avery I have a fur baby Lola the cat who insists on helping me. If I tape something and there is a cat hair, that is just Lola sending here love.

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving I have lots of wonderful memories of wonderful dinners with many different friends.

The craft I do the best is crocheting.

I have been told that I take awsome pictures.( I love my camera)

Comment: Thanks for the postcards and the recipes. The postcard with the buggy reminded me of when me moved to Massachusetts--here in WI it is shopping cart, but in MASS was the first time I heard buggy. The recipe for the cream cheese cookies has all the stuff I like in a cookie--I'm going to try that one. Happy holidays. Susan (brooklynbunch)

Comment: I have not received. I tried messenging you to let you know I hadn’t received and the message is still unread. I’d be happy to rerate if I ever receive. 11/2/17 Finally received. Thanks.
Response: I did respond to your message the day I read it. I don't get on my lap top every day. I did tell you that I would put another one in the mail the following Monday, which I did. I have no control over what happens once I put mail once I put it in the mail box.
