UPDATE 12/21/12 - PLEASE NOTE -- I have been diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis.-- Dr wants me to continue on a chemotherepy medication to try and get the swelling down and mobility back. Will see the Dr again at the end of June. She will evaluate my progress and decide if a scope of the knee is needed.
Thanks for your understanding everyone.
ATTENTION: IF FOR SOME REASON YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED ONE OF MY SWAPS, IT IS MOST LIKELY BECAUSE IT WAS LOST IN THE MAIL. PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE BEFORE RATING AND LET ME KNOW, AND I'LL REMEDY THE SITUATION. THANK YOU.
I don't swap much during the summer months. I have an extra job during the summer mowing grass, besides my 2 babysitting jobs.
I live in Michigan, in the "thumb" area of the state. Melvin is a small village, around 150 people in the village limits. I live about 2 miles out of town, on a farm with my husband Bill. Our daughter, Cheyenne (26), is seperated. Our first grandchild, Ethan Shaun, was born January 2, 2010. Our son, Bill (27), recently moved out. Bill and I will celebrate our 33nd wedding anniversary June 28th, 2013.
We live on a 72 acre farm and raise Black Angus/Limosine cattle for our own use. We have a German Shephard named "Harley".
I babysit for my 9 year old nephew Ian, 5 days a week. I also watch my grandson Ethan. I have a summer job. My Dad, young Bill and I mow the park and cemetary in Melvin each week.
I have been swapping for about 39 years now.
I like heavy metal, 80's hair bands and some rap/hip hop, pretty much everything EXCEPT country!
I like romance books: Harlequin's & historical romance. A couple favorites right now are Amanda Quick and Sandra Hill (Viking series). I'm REALLY looking forward to Sandra Hill's Viking Vampire series!!
Any crochet books/magazines too!
I like actuallity TV. I watch A&E, Discovery, The History Channel and Si-Fi most often. I love NASCAR
Not into watching movies.
All time favorite craft is crochet. I belong to a group called "the Fairy Godmothers" We do knitting, crochet and sewing for charities in our area. I also like paper crafts and general crafts.
I've recently began making ATC's and I love it! I have alot of ideas and have started to keep a notebook of lists on ones to make.
I'm very interested in inchies. I haven't tried them yet though.
I've recently gotten back into Decos....I've done them on and off for the last 27 years.
I LOVE handmade Christmas ornaments (other holidays too!). I have been swapping them online for about 15 years now. I have a Yahoo group called "OrnamentFanatics" that I have had since October 29, 2004. We swap monthly.
Likes: FB's, Decos, sticker books; handmade Christmas ornaments; windchimes; bubble envelopes; computer stationary; loose & sheets of stickers; card stock; colored paper and scrapbook papers; regular lotion-like Jergen's or Vaseline Intensive Care; unscented baby lotion
Dislikes: coffee; tea; regular stationary; reward or mini stickers; gel pens; swap cards; address labels; junky, cheap swaps; jewlery; burned CD's; perfume; scented lotions
PLEASE NOTE-I am no longer taking excess of the following items: bags (sticker/label/etc); slams; ex slips. If you have alot to move I can put you in touch with people who want them.
My family DOES NOT like seafood.
I would really like recipes that feature beef as we raise our own beef. We loves chicken too. Pork is so-so, but we love bacon and ham.
We like regular, down home cooking. Nothing with weird or fancy ingredients. (I received a recipe that calls for cactus...I live in rural Michigan)
yarn; US state quarters, president dollars and half dollars; windchimes; Yankee/Home & Garden/White Barn jar candles; Favorite Findings buttons; Mystical Creations dragon items; Disney, Hard Rock Cafe, Planet Hollywood swap pins; Red Dress pins; Nascar Raceday pins (before 2010); NASCAR (Jeff Gordon, Dale Jr and Kasey Kahne); handmade Christmas ornaments; Avon Blossoms of The Month Series Tea Cups - I've only found December so far; state bike plates with the name "ETHAN" on them (e-mail for states he already has); my 10 year old twin and 9 year old nephews want some Euro dollars
I like black, silver and red. My computer room is done in these colors with Mystical Creations dragon items for the theme.
2 1/2" and 3" wide clear mailing tape on a roll, ATC's, inchies. I'd love to receive a matchbox. I'm not quite sure just what it is, but they sound interesting! I'd like to receive one before I join in swaps for them. And I'd also like to see someones altered playing card work too. I recently heard about busy bags and would love to receive one for my grandson Ethan
I'd like some pages from books in any language. I have no books falling apart and just can't bring myself to start tearing pages out!
If you want to make anything for me I like: dragons; anything "sexy" themed (I did a sexy storybook character ATC swap and it was fun! My partner is still fanning herself! I've also hosted a Deco swap on the same theme) like fairys or storybook characters or whatever! Like I said, I love decos and am really interested in seeing other's work.
I like to make my own envelopes. I can use old calenders, gift bags, sturdy magazine pages/covers, gift wrap or any paper (heavy-weight).
TOTE BAGS - Hello, my name is Linda and I am a tote/shopping bag addict! I would love totes/shopping bags from stores not in my area, like Piggly Wiggly, Vons, Carter's to name a few. Let me know what you have and maybe we can work out a trade. My son works at a family owned store so I can send one from there in return.
Here are the people who have flaked on me:
cmarois (Bags in a Bag); mousef (Handmade Christmas Ornaments); frankie (Handmade Christmas Ornaments); debil (Handmade Christmas Ornament-February); richessi (Handmade Christmas Ornament-February); MaraSpires (USA Christmas Ornaments in July); kaylarp (USA: Christmas Ornaments in July); kylanicole (I Love My Crockpot-May); savvygal (Decos Only March-I sent 2x and she never rated); camelcaravan (March Christmas Ornament Swap-Green; she never rated & didn't reply to emails)
