About Me

I am 54 years old and a widow (damn cancer!). I have a total of 5 kids - 2 are mine (boys), 3 are his (1 girl, 2 boys). All are grown and out of the house! Four grandchildren - 3 boys and 1 girl.

Favorite Music

I love disco and BPM on XM Radio! Upbeat music sounds happy and keeps you moving! Anything from Santana to The Eagles, Bob Seger to Lady Gaga, Pink to Train, The Fray, Nine Inch Nails, Doobie Brothers, Frank Sinatra, Katy Perry, and oh so many others!

Favorite Books

Anything Ken Follett writes. Books about medieval times. The Australians Series published back in the 80's. Colleen McCullough, Steinbeck, Hemingway, Phillippa Gregory, and many others...

Favorite Movies

All time favorite for love story, cinematography, music would have to be Dr. Zhivago. The Hangover. Mama Mia. Old Shirley Temple movies. Singin' in the Rain. Oh Brother Where Art Thou. And, many, many more....

Favorite Television

Modern Family. Glee. Downton Abbey. Big Bang Theory. HGTV. Food Network, The Tudors. Raising Hope. The Good Wife. Revenge. MI-5. Once Upon A Time.

Favorite Crafts

I love to work with paper, fabrics, colors, etc.! Recently I have been obsessed with making matchboxes, gift card boxes and ATCs!

I like naked postcards.

I try to recycle items and pieces leftover from projects by using them in new projects.

When I figured out that there are no rules in crafts/art - that's when the creativity started to roll! My husband thinks I'm crazy! My kids swear I'm OCD! Don't care - I love making things!

Favorite Colors...

  • blues
  • greens (not kelly green)
  • violets
  • pinks
  • black/white or black/ecru combinations
  • jewel colors
  • bright colors (not flourescents)

Dislikes...

  • kawaii
  • knitted or crocheted clothing items (except for 'boggan hats)
  • felt
  • fake floral displays
  • seafood, seafood, seafood
  • neighbors who let their dogs bark all the time
  • junk mail
  • glass painting
  • wood crafts
  • ad cards

Loves...

  • chocolate (not so much white chocolate)
  • great coffee and great tea
  • taking care of grandkids
  • Most anything Disney - especially the trading pins
  • traveling
  • scrapbooking
  • bottle caps
  • beaches, blue water, seashells
  • PEZ dispensers
  • dragonflies
  • souvenir spoons from places I've visited
  • scrapbook paper
  • cardstock
  • chipboard letters, numbers, etc.
  • rhinestones
  • dimensional stickers
  • charms
  • old paperback books
  • wine bottle corks
  • decorative and fun buttons
  • die cuts
  • trinkets
  • pretty beads (not seed beads)
  • postcards
  • unusual paperclips (I have one in the shape of an airplane and one in the shape of an elephant)

Hi Laura! I'm your sending partner for Profile based PC swap and puzzled... can you please add some preferences about type of cards you like (I saw you like them sent naked and no ad cards but other than that I see nothing about types of pcs you like...). Thank you!

Ahhh! I do apologize that I am a day late! I can't believe I did that. Desperate Housewives! I am WAY too exicted for the new season. Gabby & Lynette & Susan are all my favorites. What about you? Well, I pretty much love everyone. I love Lynette & Tom's relationship!
