About Me

I live in the Sonoran Desert and love a good dust storm followed by a cleansing rain. I have lived in the Arizona desert (Phoenix area) for most of my life.

If possible please use real postage stamps instead of a metered strip because I love to use cancelled stamps in my art. THANKS :

I am also greatly appreciative of mail art. Ever since I saw this cool mail art junque journal from @starrgazer have been wanting to make one. First I have to collect a lot of cool envelopes!

Favorite Books

I love to read good stories. I especially like the science fiction of Isaac Asimov, Anne McCaffery, and Orson Scott Card. I also like historical fiction.

Favorite Crafts

I like to do crafts! I have had some kind of needle in my hand since the first sewing needle was given to me by my mother when I was nine! I learned how to bead when I was in 6th grade. I love seed beads and am just getting back into bead embroidery and silk ribbon embroidery. I knit and crochet. I love to sew, aprons, quilts, toys, clothes... I make books and journals. I love to alter altoid tins. I make little photo albums to put inside them. I love to read.

My Family

My Family: I am married and have 3 grown children who all live in different states. Most of our travels are to visit each other. We have two dogs, a mutt and a wolf-dog. There is a family of cotton tail rabbits that live in our back yard along with variousd birds including hummingbirds and roadrunners.

Likes & Dislikes

Please do not send anything with floral fragrances or floral perfumes.

Swap Experiences

I take my commitments seriously. If you have not received a swap from me or it is not a 5, please contact me ASAP.

I am willing to trade handcrafted items, arts and crafts items, handmade books and journals, and almost anything involving needlework such as sewing, crochet, embroidery, and knitting, If you want to know more of my likes and what I am willing to trade, look through the swaps that I have done. If you see something you'd like, let me know.

Comment: OMG. That chili recipe is so close to what I do, it's spooky. Except I don't measure. I'll have to try fire roasted tomatoes, that sounds yummy.

Comment: Thanks for sending you answers both email and PM. Thanks for the nice long answers. My only disagreement: Nobel prizes are given to author for all they've written not for a specific book . Doris Lessing was a great writer and great woman.
Response: Sorry about the mis-information about the Nobel prize. Doris Lessing was a great writer and deserved the recognition for her work.

Comment: The resend arrived safe and sound! Thank you for the wonderful book and all the goodies inside; I loved the extra pc's from the Mail Muesum also!
Response: I am glad that the new swap made it to you and that you like it. I hope one that is MIA finally turns up. The only other time a swap was MIA was a couple of years ago. It eventually made it to its destination 3 months later.

Comment: I really liked your list! Reading should be a big part of everyone's life. It's a shame that it's not. I've also wanted to be a teacher, but things never worked out. I do wish there wasn't so much focus on test scores though.

Hello, I noticed you have row by row patterns. I'm interested in any of these. I don't have any myself, but I could swap something different in return? Let me know if you'd be willing to do some kind of private swap! Thanks
