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.

note cards


book marks


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.

Please offer me another suggestion

About Me

The craft I do the best is crocheting.

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