About Me

I retired in 2013 and was introduced to Swap-bot and just love it. I love the crafty part and using my imagination to come up with ideas. I am happily married to a wonderful man, we have 4 grand children and 2 great grandsons we adore all of them most of the time. We have one cat Babe Demon, We rescued a dachshund named him Buddy that was a great decision. We purchased a Motor Home this year (2017) we are looking forward to my husband retiring in early (2018) and doing some traveling.

Favorite Music

I love Country Music. My favorite happen to be Kenny Rogers, Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban. I have been to Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban concerts, they were outstanding. I am Hoping to see Kenny Rogers this year (2018)

Favorite Books

Books WOW i love to read almost everything unless it is scary. I love Sandra Brown and Danielle Steet. I believe i have read everything that Danielle has written except the one about her son that passsed away. I have the book but i can't bring myself to read it.

Favorite Movies

I am hooked on the Hallmark Channel and i love it especially around Christmas time. I will watch them over and over. I Go to the movies at least twice a month with my grandson and a friend.(small confession it is for the pop corn too).

Favorite Television

THE BIG BANG THEORY i sit and watch it with my granson and laugh no matter how many times i have seen it. I love Mike and Molly. Other then that i like the game shows and the newly wed game cracks me up.

Favorite Crafts

I love crafty things I did not realize the beautiful things you can make. It has more meaning when you make things by yourself. There is no limit to where your imaination can take you. I have crochet blankets, hats and scarves it has been a few years. I also love to sew I also don't do that much any more either, the last thing I made were my grandsons curtains for his nursery. When my children were younger I made a lot of their clothes especially PJ's .

favorites

Favorite color is pink. The other colors I like are lavender, lighter shades of blues and some yellows.

I do not like real scary things.

I love animals especially my cats, I like bunnies, pandas and dolphins. I do like other animals many other animals but those are my favorite.

I enjoy spending time with the grand kids . My husband and i go camping as often as we can and that is so very much fun.

We enjoy the out doors. During the summer we go to a lot of yard sales and flee markets.

Cooking is also a favorite thing for me to do, i like to exchange recipies.

I love pretty ribbon and lace.

My very favorite holiday is Christmas.

I love snowmen especially the really cute ones.

I also like to see pictures of different places.( Because i am afraid to fly) that is the is the only way I will see these beautiful places. If you have postcards that is even better.

I like cute and pretty things.

Home made items also.

ATC supplies are always a good idea.

About Me

I love different crafts, especially christmas crafts if any one has any ideas i would love you to share them with me. I collect Shirley Temple items, I have a really nice collection. I am looking for the DVD the Christmas list movie. I ordered one from e-bay and it will not play here in the US. Also if anyone has ATC magazines with ideas I would be happy to buy them. Postcards are one of my favorites, pets or any animals or where you live or have been. I prefer them unused.

Comment: Thanks for my first ATC coin ever. :) I love the 3-D effect! Just an FYI for future swaps--writing "non-machineable" on your envelope will not stop your letters from going through the machine. The only way to ensure that is to take them to the post office and have them hand-cancelled.
