About Me

3 June, 2019 -- My husband and I moved into a life care facility. A life care facility is where you move in at one level of care and as your health needs change, you move into the next level of care. (Example - independent living to assisted living, assisted living to rehab or memory or complete care). It took us over 3 months to get our stuff packed up and moved. It is a very nice place and we both like it here. My husband did have a difficult time giving up his tools and his garage and the car he was restoring. Now that we are somewhat settled, I am anxious to get back into the swapping & crafting mode. i miss HAPPY MAIL. Since all utilities are covered in our monthly fee, I won't be getting ANY MAIL ....NO BILLS!! I NEED HAPPY MAIL !!!

18 March 2018 -- I am writing to let everyone know that due to some unexpected issues that have arisen, I am going to be taking an break from swapping.Once the issues are resolved, then I hope to be returning. If I have signed up to be your partner and you have not received the swap from me, please let me know so I can follow up and get it to you. Thank you for being patient and understanding.

I have been married to a wonderful man for 24 years. We do not have any children together, but I am the step-mom to 3 daughters & 1 son. We have 8 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Our children and grandchildren are spread thru out the US, so we don't get to see them as often as we would like.

After 40 years, I retired from nursing. Working in the medical field was the only work I had ever done. My body was ready to retire from nursing but my heart & soul was not. Body won out.

In May of 2017, I lost my Shih Tzu. Buddy had been a part of my life for 10 years. It was a difficult decision regarding getting another dog. But after much thought, adopted a 2 year old female Shih Tzu named Independence. Indy is blind; she lost her vision about 2 weeks before adopted her from a rescue.

I love the beach and water. I so enjoyed listening to the waves hit the shore and find it so relaxing. I am not a real "lover of the sun", except when on the boat. I prefer cruising on a plantoon then being in a speed boat.

MY LIKES: COLORS--1) all shades of blues, aqua, teal 2) combination of yellow, gray, black 3) then most color combos FOOD--- cheese pizza with or without french
fries;watermelon; "Blooming Onion"
from Outback; green salads; cement mixer from Culver's, dark chocolate. MUSIC --- 60's, 70's, 80's, Disco, and some country (Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Reba, Kenny Rogers, Don Williams, Randy Travis). I like to dance. READING --- I preferences in authors changing from time to time. I am reading James Patterson (but not Alex Cross), Janet Evanovich (her characters make me laugh), Sara Petrosky (who's character is from Chicago).

DISLIKES --- spiders & snakes; the dentist; liver & onions; heights; talking about religion or politics.

ME ......CRAFTY--- Started scrapbooking in 60's when the books were black and the pictures were black and white. In the 70's decorated my calendars (aka planners) which I still do. I use 3 calendars at a time....one at home, one at my desk and one in my purse. I begin tole
painting in the 80's. In 2000, I began card making. 2016 I tried mixed media and a more formal style of art journaling. In 2017, I started doing ATCs. I also knit and crochet but I prefer paper crafting and painting. I guess I'm what you call a "gypsy" crafter...I don't have a speciality because I like to do different crafts at different times.

My wish list: I would like used postage stamps. I would like postcards.

If you don't receive a swap from me, please contact me before you rate me. I am more then happy to resend. Also if I don't receive a swap, I will contact you before rating you.
