About Me

Mom to one. US Navy veteran. Nerd. Bibliophile. Tea lover. Chocoholic. Crochet and yarn addict.

Random facts about me:
I have no singing voice, but I love to sing. I love learning about my ancestry. My daughter is part Korean (her grandmother was from S. Korea, and her father was born in Seoul)...and refers to herself as an "AsianCasian."

My Daughter:

I have a lovely daughter, she's now a teen, and she just amazes me. She makes me laugh every day, and is always coming up with something new to tell me. She loves singing and making up songs, and we sing together everywhere--even walking around a store shopping. She loves watching movies, and has so many I'm not sure if she has a favorite. She loves the colors of the rainbow, but her favorite color is black.

Favorite Books


Diana Gabaldon, Barbara Erskine, JK Rowling, Fannie Flagg, JRR Tolkien, KM Moning, Nancy E. Turner, Colleen Hoover, Sabaa Tahir, Kata Cuic.


Historical fiction, Fantasy, True Crime, Paranormal, WWI-WWII-Civil War era novels (non-fiction and fiction) I'll pretty much read anything if it catches my interest.

I have literally walked into wall corners because I was so engrossed in a book.



I love The Beatles. Aerosmith, any classical, Native American Flutes (like R. Carlos Nakai)... The Avett Brothers are my all time favorite, and I finally got to see them in concert Summer 2014.


Monk (I miss Monk). Vikings, The Alienist, and NFL games. Pretty much only turn my tv on for those three.


Lord of the Rings & Hobbit, Harry Potter, Disney, Hot Fuzz, and Shaun of the Dead. The Wizard of Oz was (and still is) my favorite growing up.

Favorite Crafts

By no means am I an expert at crafts, but I do like doing them. I love coloring (yep, in my kid's coloring books...we sit together and color). I am a crochet addict. One can never have enough yarn.

CROCHET: Would like to make an afghan using 6 inch granny squares (any kind design). Worsted weight, acrylic is good. Any color/combo.


I love writing to other people and learning about them. Over the last two years, I started collecting postcards, and writing penpals.
I love: the colors blue and green, celtic, dragonflies, baltic amber, books, horses, nature, digital photography, paranormal, taking walks, swimming, hiking, and playing games with my daughter.


I like getting postcards that show the city/town/country the person comes from, nature scenes, historical places, parks, military, unusual cards, lighthouses, churches, castles, animals, funny/comic, art...I guess just about anything.


bookmarks, stationary, stickers, postcards. Okay, so I'm addicted to bookmarks and postcards.



I'm not big on white chocolate, but I'm always willing to try something new. I never know if I'll be surprised and like something. I love nuts, esp. almonds and hazlenuts. Who'm I kidding I'll eat pretty much anything if it's chocolate ;o)


Tea...another addiction. I love black, green, white, rooibos, fruity, spicy (like chai), etc. I love a good, strong cuppa. They only tea I can't drink seems to be Yerba Mate. It doesn't agree with me.

If you don't receive swap

If you don't receive anything from me in a reasonable amount of time, please let me know by message. I do not mark things "Sent" unless I have actually put them into the hands of the post office.

Pledge To Rate

I Pledge to Rate what I pledged

I love getting rated for my swaps, and love rating others. If you do not get rated by me, then I have not received the swap yet (feel free to PM me). I always try contacting a partner before I rate neutral or negative.

If you do not receive a swap from me in a sensible amount of time please PM me before you rate. I do not mark items sent until I have placed them into the hands of the USPS.

If I ever think I will not make a swap deadline, and will send out late, I will notify the coordinator and any partners I am sending to.

Comment: Thank you for the lighthouse postcard.
Response: You're welcome! I miss being able to go out to Montauk. There's only one road out that way, and it takes forever to get there, but it's beautiful. In winter, you can see the seals, and can take whale watching boats. It's also where they go to fish for great whites and other sharks off the coast.

Comment: Thank you for the pretty squares. I like the rainbow one, it is opposite of what I do, perfect! Love the sunflowers too. Though we haven't had the snow like you have, we have the bitter cold instead (-25 the other night) I've put the sunflowers up where I can look at them and dream of warmer weather
Response: Oh good! I'm glad you liked it. I made it after the Jan swap, then I got you and was giggling bc I was following yours! lol! Yeah, I'm done with the snow (and the cold too), our wind chills are bringing us down to -25 to -35 some nights. It's funny when you think as long as it's in the single negatives, it's warm! Have a great day!

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful squares. I love the color combinations that you used and I especially enjoyed reading the meaning of your color choices. I totally get it. Thank you for making this such a special swap. Take care and Happy Swapping!
Response: You're welcome! Sometimes, I think I put way too much thought into things, lol! I'm glad I got them out early bc my surgery ended up with complications. A 2 week recovery was turned into 6 weeks! Happy Swapping!

"If there's a phone in heaven put Mama on the line."

Phone in Heaven by Mike Manuel

I asked my daughter if she would sing this at my funeral and she said she didn't think she could make it through the whole song...

Song Lyrics #1 Electronic

Shoo be doo ay, I got something to say Shoo be doo I, gotta try To tell you that I, I, I, I really love you, love you Shoo be doo ay, gotta say it my way It may not be fancy, I know But I said it before, and I'll say it again And again, and again, and again

Song Lyrics #1 Electronic

"There've been times that I thought, I couldn't last for long / But now I think I'm able to carry on / It's been a long, a long time coming / But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will"

A Change is Gonna Come - Sam Cooke
