About Me

I have been married for 27 yrs to my husband who is the funniest person I know. We are both NON SMOKERS so u will not receive anything that smells like smoke from my home. lol We have two wonderful children. Our son who is 30 and getting maried June 14, 2014 finally. Our daughter who is 25 yrs. lives with her boyfriend and I imagine will marry in the next couple of years. We have a dog named Harley she is a boxer Rottweiller Cross, and our baby, she is a big suck, looks mean and sounds mean but we have humanized her really bad so she is spoiled rotten. She is a wonderful addition to our family, and even allows my husband and I to share her queen size bed with her. I am a business women Monday to Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.. On most weekends I work at craft gift sales or hockey tournaments selling hockey cards and collectables, then after that anything goes. I'm 53 yrs old and still trying to remember where I parked my car. And they say getting older is a easier. I want to know who they is !! I decided in July to stop coloring my hair, Im 52 went from coloring dark dark brown almost black, to a fabulous silver and white. Best decision I ever made, I have never had so many compliments. Who would have known. I am at a point in my life where you only live once, STOP worrying about what everyone else thinks. They are going to talk no matter what you do.

Favorite Crafts

I have been sewing and crafting for about 35 years now, I grew up in hand made clothes my dress always matched my 3 brothers shirts (seriously mom, really !!! I love trying all kinds of crafts, I stopped spending a fortune buying Jewellery and started making my own. Not for selling purposes but just for unique one of a kind pieces for myself. I am a jewellery addict as my shopping buddy will tell everyone. I also make numerous childrens clothes and soft toys, from dresses, sweatsuits, jumpsuits etc. to clowns, novelty cushions and much much more. Creating is so much fun.
My latest project is buying used jean jackets for all ages and recycling them by painting, stenciling and appliqueing pictures anything from wilderness, animals, cartoon characters to super heroes and more. Im not a really halloween decorater anymore as my children are grown up and moved out and we only get about 50 kids where I live, but at Christmas time it takes me a couple weeks to get my home decorated and when its done I feel like I live in a Christmas show home. Drives my husband crazy. I dont have a favorite color I love all colors. The one thing I can't do to save my own life with is knit, my knit one, pearl one never make sense. lol. WTH does that mean anyways. I have been told just give me a glue gun, E6000 a hammer or a sewing machine and I can probalbly make you a new husband. Now wouldn't that make me a ton of $$$$.

Favorite Music

I love most music, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's 90,s and now sounds. My iphone has anything from Classical to Gangser music. A few examples would be Pattsy Cline, Roy Orbison, Donny Osmond, Andrea Bocelli, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Flo Rider, Guns N'Roses, Phantom of the Opera (which is also my all time favorite broadway play). I do not like music before 7 am in the morning, I like silence on my drive to work.

Favorite Books

Danielle Steel and John Grisham are my two favorites. Anything they do I know I will enjoy reading it,

Favorite Movies

Drama, and action movies are my favorite, I think my all time favorite is The Shooter with Mark Wahlberg.
I love Quentin Tarantino movies. Another of my all time favorites from my top 10 would be The Phantom of the Paradise with Paul Williams from the 70's. Now that sure shows my age.

Favorite Television

Criminal Minds, seriously though Shemar Moore can make any show worth watching. Law and Order The Mentalist Cold case And of course Sunday mornings bright and early, Coronation Street.
Yes I said Coronation Street.

What I like

I wear all shades of browns, greys and blacks, and accent with all the colors under the sun. I dont have a favorite color I love all colors, my favorite number is 33, Not sure why it just always has been. I love a nice set of biceps on a man nothing like a nice set of strong arms to look at and help out when necessary. (Oops that has nothing to do with crafting).

About Me

Thats it, thats me in a nut shell, I love to laugh, I love to cry, I can be the nicest person you will ever meet and I can be the biggest B_ _ _ H you will ever meet if you hurt the ones I love. I have been told I am a giver not a taker, and for me I thrive off of making others happy. Dr. Phil calls it an enabler. Seriously what does he know? lol Happy crafting, and sewing and whatever else it is you do. I hope to be joined with many people from all over the world that have all these and more in common with me.

Things I would like to get

Anything to make jewellery, or a piece of jewellery, appliques, stickers, rhinestones, I love chocolate, I enjoy NHL (Hockey) NFL & CFL (Football) .Small swatches of fabrics that I can use to applique, Ribbons, lace, Christmas ornaments, red, gold or class are my preference. unique pieces of papers and cutouts. hummingbird items for crafting or just to enjoy. I have made my first ATC and have fallen in love with this craft. Such a brilliant idea and there are so many different imaginations out there its endless. I'm definetly hooked. I am a fan of Jack Skellington and I love Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh.I collect anything that has to do with angels, I believe we all have atleast one. I have started collecting humming birds, I have decided to dedicate my back yard that is under construction to my mother and mother inlaw, all my yard ornaments etc are humming birds for my mother and yellow roses for my mother inlaw. Both are now decesased.

Dislikes

Things I dont like: Coffee, black tea, Hello Kitty, Kawaii, Mint flavored anything, Arrogant people!!! We are all the same no matteer how much we have or don't have, no matter how educated we are or are not and no matter what color our skin is. We all just need to get along. I do notcollect post cards or postage stamps. If I receive them I pass them on to those who do collect them.

please take the time to rate.

Comment: Oh my gosh, what a surprise! I was going through a bunch of junk mail I had tossed on the counter just prior to Christmas and what fell out? Your Christmas card! Thank you so much. I loved the extras - especially the letter you included. My sincerest apologies for not rating you sooner. I only wish I had found it before Christmas so I could pin it on the wall with the others (I love cardinals.) Oh well, just another example of how I shouldn't be such a procrastinator. If I had tackled that bunch of papers a month ago I wouldn't have lost track of your swap. On the bright side, it was a lovely surprise to greet me on the most dismal of winter days. Thanks again. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (tardy though it may be.)

Comment: Darlene, what a beautiful christmas card you sent. Cardinals are one of my most favorite birds and I love to see them on my patio during the winter months eating from the feeders. What a delightful letter you wrote all about your Christmas traditions. It certainly sounds like your home is filled with all the joys of Christmas. May you find many blessings in the upcoming days. Merry Christmas.

Are you still doing swap-bot? I don't see any recent postings. I wanted to send you something in the mail. Please respond if you're still around. Thanks.

I hope you are okay. New rule is anyone who does not log into SB for more than 2 months is dropped from the list. You can always rejoin when you come back. Vicky

Hi, Just wanted to say thankyou for the beautiful Christmas Card, along with the gorgeous get well card. I was wondering which swap we were both in that you had to send to me, and couldn't find one so I believe this was a random act of kindness. I cant believe there are such nice people as yourself who would send me these thoughts and wishes just because. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you. It meant so much, and I am humbled by your kindness. Love and Light, Jen

Hi Darlene, I love your profile and we have a lot of things in common especially the dog allowing our husbands and selves to share their queen size bed! We are a non-smoking home also. How do you get all these lovely motifs on your profile? I am a newbie to Swap-bot and you are my partner in the Hello ATC. I hope you will like what I send you which will be on Monday when the post office is open again. I love your Tim Hansel quote about laughter, that is precious. i think I am an enabler too. Take care, Marion K (Mak) [email protected]
