About Me

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure to put what swap it is somewhere on the postcard/envelope/package so that I can make sure to rate you.

I am a poet and artist and I try to spend a part of each day being creative in some way. I am interested in sooooo many things, but in crafts I do a lot of piecing of quilts, sewing, and crocheting, but now I think I am becoming addicted to paper crafts, especially those devilishly small ATC's...They are wonderfully challenging, and as they are small and can usually get it finished in one session, they aren't overwhelming...

I live on the Mason-Dixon Line in South Central Pennsylvania with my hubby and English Bulldog,Gypsy, who is full of pep and driving us crazy with her antics...All of the above make me smile at least once a day, and that's something to be thankful for!

I am not working at this time, but most recently was employed for 18 1/2 years as a 911 dispatcher.

Favorite Music

I mostly listen to whatever my husband is listening to, i.e., techno and world culture music. Some faves are the Afro Celt Sound System, Phuture Primitive, Bionaut and I have been digging on folky music forever, especially Jonathan Byrd (google him and check him out). If I had to pin it down, it would be CSNY, the Eagles, and Bob Seegar...I know, all from the 70's...

Favorite Movies

Eclectic and bizarre differences...from Gone With the Wind to Training Day, Terminator movies, Spitfire Grill, Fried Green Tomatoes, Saving Private Ryan, Crash. I like a good, tight story.

Favorite Television

Boardwalk Empire,and Dexter are my current faves...most anything historical, forensic, or documentative...Animal Planet keeps me hooked too.

About Me

As far as preferences---my favorite colors are pink, white and green, and style would be cottage chic...anything with hearts, critters of any kind, poetry, and anything quirky, unusual or funny.

I really get into vintage stuff...postcards, fabric, pictures, all kinds of oddments. I am a history nut, so it's a sure bet that if it's got some age to it, I'll appreciate it.

I love the number eight (we got married on 8-8-08), morning glories, night-time (I'm like the stars, I only shine at night!), little birds, buzzards, old cemeteries, and my body being comfortable...That means slip-on shoes, no tight pants, and a satisfied belly!

I am a woman of size, and am happy having entered my crone years...I love my gray hair and my magnifing glasses that I now need to use almost all the time...This growing old thing isn't easy, but I'm liking it!

I am very hard to embarrass and definitely lean to bawdy. I am girly, yet into goddess, more spiritual than religious, a country girl who can get along in the city.

I believe that the Universe will steer you to what I want or need. So, send what your gut tells you to, it will find a home with me!

I adore anything with dogs, especially English Bulldogs.

Critters of any kind are always appreciated, GROUNDHOGS will earn you hearts and unending appreciation.

My hubby is a philatelist (postage stamp collector) and many of your envelopes and packages will be scarfed up by him. You can send me stamps (or the whole envelope, that's even better) from your last weeks mail...That'll earn you hearts for sure!...And if you would be interested in sending me the envelopes from a week or month's worth of mail, we can work out an exchange...That is to say, if you save us a bunch of your mail, I am willing to make something expressly for you in exchange...I

If I also like to reuse, repurpose, and recycle...It is quite possible you will receive something that has gone through some sort of metamorphosis, like a sweater which has been felted and made into a needlebook...

CzechFriend on Apr 12, 2012:

Deb, a beautiful Colorado postcard with a bear on it arrived and brought a smile to my face! Thank you!!!

theirmimi on Feb 7, 2012:

How funny that the card finally made it. Was it all in one piece or does it look like it did battle along the way?

Castlequeen on Jan 31, 2012:

Thank you for the surprise groundhog postcard... who knew groundhogs could be so adorable!

Castlequeen on Jan 7, 2012:

You had me going for a minute or three today when I found your postcard... I thought, "Wow! Somebody used the same cards and paper as I did for this swap." Then I read it and had an aha moment! I loved that card when you made it and I'm delighted you sent it to me! Thank you!

LightningArt on Dec 23, 2011:

Hey there girlfriend! The surprise postie came today and I love the labels! Thank you for thinking of me!

Castlequeen on Nov 23, 2011:

What fun to get a surprise postie from you! Yes, I know this artist's work but have never actually met her. My first reaction before realizing the sender of the card was, "Wow! Somebody knows Carol Oldenburg!" Thank you!
