Favorite Crafts

I am taking a break from swap-bot for the remainder of the summer. Too many other things going on, but I will log on to rate the remaining swaps as they are received and will be back in September.

Happy Summer Everyone!

My favorite crafts change from time to time.

Currently, I am learning to knit and crochet and I absolutely love both! I even joined a local knitting guild!

I also enjoy, scrapbooking, beading, decorative painting and other general crafts.

Favorite Books

I use to read a lot, but even though I have lots of free time, being on lay off, I find my self crafting more than reading.

I also have a large collection of Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books from my childhood, and V.C. Andrews, J.D. Robb, Patricia Cornwall and Terry Brooks. You can tell that I like a variety!

Favorite Movies

I like to laugh. I don't like to cry or cringe. So no blood. I don't mind scary so much, but as in Poltergiest or Paranormal Activity, not horror! Yechh!

Favorite Television

I don't watch TV. Really! There are way too many other things I would rather do with my time. Can't stand all the reality shows out there, enough is enough already!

I do have some DVDs that I watch when knitting or before bed,like Friends, Fraser, Big Bang Theory, That 70's show, and even, yes, the Golden Girls. You gotta watch that show, it is pretty funny, especially Sophia!

About Me

I am, or was, a single parent of a boy with cerebral palsy. Now I am, happily, well sometimes anyway, happily living with a very unique man who brings a ray of sunshine to my life.

My son,now 19, is still the light of life and will always be!

Favorite Music

I love country, newer country though, not Hank Williams or Stompin' Tom. Love Toby Keith, Alan Jackson etc.

My teenage favorite was the Bay City Rollers! Loved that plaid. Also liked ABBA.

Wish List

I would love to trade,



gift tags


papers, ie scrapbooking


recipe cards

dollarstore craft finds, like brads, eyelet etc

Favorite Colours

I love lavender, as in pale shades of purple, not deep purple. Its actually the colour I want for my bridesmaids' dresses (yes, at 50 I've decided its time to get married).

But my favorite colour is yellow, true bright yellow, not the orange yellow.

but really, any colour is good, even black, but not white, I mean, whites not a colour, right?

Comment: Donna, I never did receive your ATC for the Yellow Pages swap. And you were the coordinator! The last day that you were online was the day that you marked the swap sent. I hope you will not flake on me---it's not fair to me.

Comment: I have sent a PM that this swap never reached me. Swapper has not logged in to read it. I am rating a 1 but will change to a 3 if I receive it. This is a shame because you were the host for this swap.

Lexidh rated for not-so-QUICK craft paper swap x3 #4 on May 3, 2012
Comment: Thank you =)
Response: You're welcome! Glad you got it ok.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely package of paper! This is not typically paper I would buy--I like it very much, but I am typically drawn to "pinker" things! So....I am so glad to have some to play with! Thanks, too, for the little butterfly-bradded envie with the extra diecuts. Love it all!
Response: Glad you received it! I too like the pinker colours, also lavender and yellow but normally really subdued papers but having something more bold to play with or add a splash of colour to can come in handy! Have a great day!
