I became a grammy to Matt on December 24, 2006. On October 22, 2015, Matt became big brother to TWIN siblings, Kat (Katherine Shannon) and Corey (Corwin Sean)! They live in Connecticut and I live in New Hampshire now. I knit, crochet, like to travel and I love movies. I love the color PINK. I also like blue and lilac. I don't care much for orange and I really dislike mint (or any light) green. I like forest green, though. I love crosswords and reading. I like soft things. I like to travel . I have no pets. I am not much for perfume but I like scented shower gels and body sprays, mostly raspberry and PLEASE absolutely NO VANILLA! If you're thinking about sending me any item of clothing, please ask me first since I am larger than an XL. Easy but beautiful patterns (knit or crochet). I have a very serious pattern addiction - I collect easy patterns from everywhere, especially for small projects. I love snowmen! I like fairies . I have a soft spot in my heart for butterflies and certain cartoon characters like Wile E. Coyote, Droopy, Opus, Tennessee Tuxedo and Bullwinkle. I DO NOT SCRAPBOOK SO PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME ANY SCRAPBOOKING ITEMS EXCEPT STICKERS. Handmade cards are great and I love to receive them!!.
Neil Diamond, Dixie Chicks, Carrie Underwood, 70's music (think Barry Manilow, Linda Ronstadt and the Bee Gees), Taylor Swift but NO heavy metal or acid rock.
Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind, Paternity, Tombstone, 50 First Dates, You've Got Mail, People Will Talk (50's Cary Grant movie)
Law & Order (any of them!), Blue Bloods, Chopped, Criminal Minds, and any NBA basketball game I can find. I admit that I watch most of the shows on the Food Network because I enjoy learning new things about cooking. Even after probably 45 years of cooking!
If you want to send extras and have no idea what might work for me, here's some helpful hints. I don't drink tea but do drink coffee and cocoa but just plain coffee, nothing flavored. I prefer milk chocolate to dark although but all chocolate is welcome. I always like a good bookmark, free, store-bought or home-made. Little notecards are good. I like roses and yellow ducks and cute white bunny rabbits and yellow chicks. I especially like them on stickers. I appreciate an easy recipe for one. If you have no idea of what to send or have an idea but are not sure I'd like it, please, I do NOT find it insulting if you ask. I prefer that you ask and I will do the same for you if I am unsure.
I always look at your profile and if I have any doubts, I will PM you. I always send my packages and almost always they are early. It's not meant as pressure to partners, just that I am an early person. I was born 2 weeks early! And if you ask anyone who knows me, they will tell you I am always the first person to arrive. So please if you do not get an envelope or package from me by the deadline, PM me because I do not want to disappoint anyone!
My wish list is not really big and mostly I am wishing for things I don't have, do or know much about. There are a couple of items on it that are related to what crafts I do but mostly not. Here's my list:
A fairy wish jar, A tote bag to haul a knitting project around, a plastic bag holder, Pink yarn, Handmade notecards with snowmen or yellow ducks, handmade earrings or handmade socks!
Wishing, too, for anything related to the Boston Celtics. I am a huge fan. Favorite players are John Havlicek, Robert Parrish, Bob Cousey, Kevin McHale, JoJo White, Dennis Johnson, Cedric "Cornbread" Maxwell, Dave Cowens and, of course, Paul Pierce.
THE LATEST is that after 31 years of living in California, because I was unable to find employment, I moved back to NH to live with family. No swapping until I get a job (or sadly, disability) and can support myself. I have been unemployed since November, 2014 and am sad I have had to give up swapping by mail. So sorry, no swapping except electronic ones until finances improve. I have had a rough 4 years. I want to swap but financially it just isn't possible.
I rate you the same day I receive your swap. If you take the time and make the effort to ensure I receive your swap on or before deadline, I feel that rating you the same day is fair.
I am always up for a private rated swap. Be forewarned, though. If you don't send to me, I will give you a 1. I ALWAYS rate.
