About Me

  • married to my best friend for 27 years
  • mother of 2 almost grown boys (do they ever grow up??)
  • NEWLY RETIRED!!! public school teacher for 35 years - music, computers, and digital music - elementary and middle school, academically talented, chorus
  • handbell director at church
  • 2x breast cancer survivor (2006 & 2010)

Favorite Crafts

sewing, machine embroidery, crocheting, clay, jewelry, ATC's, quilting. I like to try most any craft. I am always looking for some new technique to try.

Favorite Books

Now that I'm I retired - reading (and crafting!) are top of my list - after I find a place for 35 years worth of school stuff!!

Misc. Likes

Apparently I am a craft-a-holic (or just a hoarder) but I can't seem to pass up on craft things on sale or at garage sales. So, if you are worried about me liking anything you send me - don't! I love getting inspiration from other's work and bits and bobs from everywhere!

I really like all colors. I like black as an accent color for anything. Since having breast cancer pink has become a favorite color, too. I even rock pink hair every October. Rainbows (traditional or non-traditional) are cool, too.

I am really partial to denim - not sure why. (Maybe its a baby boomer thing.) I never seem to be able to get rid of blue jeans. I have visions of making an awesome denim quilt when I retire!

My birthday is (and my grandmother's was, too) on Valentine's Day - so I am also partial to hearts of any kind!

I love anything music related when it comes to crafts - stickers, paper, etc. I have bought sheet music at yard sales to use for ATCs but frequently can't bring myself to cut it up!

My nieces got American Girl dolls for Christmas and I have been having fun sewing for the dolls!

Favorite Music

All kinds - I was a digital music teacher so I like to listen to most any kind of music just to be aware of it. My husband and I listen to country music most of the time at home.

As I mentioned before I love anything crafty, homemade or store bought that is music related!

Not favorites...

I am pretty accepting of most everything - even the things on this list - but if you are looking for things I am not really into - here some are:

occult, horror, nudity, wicca, flakers!

But - I am happy getting most anything - even these things (well... except the flakers!!!). To each his/her own!

Comment: Thanks for the block. I've enjoyed this block so much I've already made a whole quilt top -- 80 squares -- and put it together. It's such a great way to use up a lot of my scraps. I may make another.
Response: Awesome!!

Comment: oh my goodness....I truly feel like a queen for a day. This is way too perfect to use for a mug rug, it will be hanging in my cubie at work from now on! I love it. So many of my favorite things, and my most favorite things - my grandsons, all in one beautiful piece of art! Needless to say I would give you lots more hearts and 5's if I could. Thank you!

Thanks so much for the great Hawaiian fabric, what a nice surprise to get in the mail. Now to figure out what I want to make with it!

Just wanted to let you know I received 2 lovely postcards from Niaomi for the Back to school project quite awhile ago.. Glad she liked the Blackbeard the Pirate and the little wild pony postcards I mailed. I just think it was such a great project for you to undertake and hope the children had fan learning from all the postcards. Shirley

Hey! I was one of the participants in the "PCs for back to school project" swap and wanted to let you know I got a lovely postcard of Pompton Lakes, N.J. from Jenna (both from you and hers), please tell her I loved it!

Thanks for hosting such a lovely swap!

Greetings from Chile,

Camila.

Just wanted to say that I received a PC from your back to school swap from Jeffrey today. I know you did this to help your students, but you have no idea how much joy this brought to me. If you have any students who would like to continue to exchange postcards, let me know...either myself or one of my three middle school aged children would love to write to them!

I updated the rules in The Bargain Boutique and asked that everyone read and sign them. Unfortunately I don't see your name so I had to remove you. If you'd like to rejoin please let me know. Thanks!
