About Me

December - Wishing one and all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I'm off to spend the week with family.

October - time has flown, I spent the summer holidays with my daughter and visiting family. I'm getting around fairly well now. But not looking forward to the weather ahead.

Misfortune visited me last fall with emergency gall bladder surgery. I was home just a few days when I went back to the hospital with an infection. After that battle for two weeks I was going about my day and slipped on my way into the market and cracked my hip! That recovery took over a month, from hospital to rehab center and finally home again. My family tried to keep my spirits up but i was very angry and sad. My pity party is over and i wish to apologize to you if you didnt get my swap item. I hope you are all happy, healthy, and well.

*regarding ratings...... My family took over sending my swap items while I was laid up, and assured me all were sent. I would be willing to resend for better rating, if you just message me for what swap you feel you were looked over, if any.

Hello! I am a part time nanny, with some volunteer work and a little admin assistance thrown in from time to time.

I have moved around the US quite a bit.
My husband was in the Air Force. I love to support our troops with care packages and letters.

I am a Christian and active in my local church. I say MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Favorite Crafts

Quilting and Scrapbooking are my top two.

I am dabbling in some embroidery, but I don't know many stitches yet.

And I love to take photographs, but mostly snapshots of family, friends, and some nature.

*I have a daughter who likes beading.

Favorite Books

I love to read political thrillers.

I am interested in homesteading and prepping.

I am picky about what sci-fi I read.

I like religious books about daily life applications.

I'm always keen on cookbooks.

And I never pass up an "quick" organization title, although they all seem to say the same things, and I haven't gotten the least bit motivated to tidy up yet!

things i love

Anything homemade!

If I had a wish list, I think it would include any of these things:

  • note cards
  • Disney anything
  • scraps of fabric at least 1.5" wide strip or square (currently working on a batik quilt)
  • postcards (for swaps I like them written on and stamped)
  • beads and supplies for my daughters jewelry making habit
  • recipes (on 4x6 or smaller cards)
  • scrapbook supplies (really anything except brads, and paper flowers)

-copies of your nature snapshots or cool architecture

If scented, I like vanilla and "beachy". I like watermelon flavored candies and gum.

thinks i don't like

Gothic, skulls, dark themed anything. The color orange and anything flavored orange or grape. Cinnamon. Bad allergy! Cats.

Comment: Thank you for everything!
Comment: I love to quilt. Do you have any projects started? I have several, I just don’t know which ones I want to finish first. I would love to swap blocks or FQ or letters. Good luck with your goal. Set a schedule or time line, it might help. Jennifer
Comment: I caught the game in 3rd quarter. They was losing at the time. I'm a Steelers fan win or lose. My husband was hogging the big t.v. at the time. Lol. I miss Robin. I'm going to miss new movies coming out and he won't be in any :( I can't pick a favorite. I love so many of his. Cadbury centers are amazing. Instead of leaving them on the shelves just buy them and send them to me. Lol They should sell them year round but then that would problem be a bad idea. I would be really, really, really, really fat. Lol. I heard about pocket letters I believe on Facebook or maybe it was when I was googling pen pal sites and found pocket letter pals (http://www.pocketletterpals.com/). You are totally right. They are addicting :)

Hi! Was just browsing your profile, you have a lot of fun interests. I too love quilting, and scrapbooking (well, at this point I more collect scrapbooking stuff than actually crapbooking, hehe) I love that you're working on a batik quilt!! I love batik, but don't have enough in my stash to make a quilt (yet). You should post pics of it when it's done!!

Take care and happy holidays!

It is nice to see that you like Disney. I also like Disney, and Winnie the Pooh is my favourite. :) Piglet is my favourite character. In Dutch Piglet is called Knorretje, hihi! ^^ -Happy Holidays, and Happy Swapping!-

Thank you for your beautiful Christmas card for the Private Swaps in the USA group Christmas card tag. I had to laugh when you were telling me about your weather being in the 70's and then dropping down to freezing- I am originally from Michigan and I remember that type of weather! Now I am in Florida and it has been staying around 80 during the day, but no forecast of freezing weather do I expect to hear. Hope your holidays are filled with those you love, Tracy
