About Me

I am crafty person from way back. Sewed my own doll clothes. I learned to knit in the 4th grade. I've been quilting, crocheting, knitting sewing paper crafts lately. I occasionally paint and draw. I had been a sales rep for an arts & crafts, Doing that gave me quite an accumulation of books & supplies. I've Tole painted, stenciled & cross stitched. You name it, I've tried it. I'm an avid gardener. But I don't like weeding! I like flowers and herbs. My favorite flower is the pink rose!
I AM NOT A FLAKER. If you don't get my package...it got LOST. Email me asap!!!

About Me

I was born in Canada but I grew up in Columbus, OH. Went to school there [OSU], got married there, had 3 kids there and moved to Delphos in 1983. Downsized our lifestyle & love the country life. I've had a variety of jobs over the years, permanent & part time jobs; outside sales, cashier, office manager, and administrative assistant. I have a few part time gigs in the networking world. I had an opportunity to go back to school and graduated in June of 2011 with my Associates in IT Networking. Retired and keeping busy with my blog and all those projects that have been waiting to get done!. Someday again I will go to Yoga classes and work out! I'm on the board of trustees with the Delphos Public Library, I'm a member of the local Sewing Guild and the local Fiber Guild.

Favorite Music

I like a bit of everything. Country, Pop, Jazz, Contempory & Rock.

Favorite Books

Listened to all of Harry Potter. Si-Fi. I esp like historical type of books. Biblical times, Elizabethian, Egyptian etc. Read the Hunger Games & the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo. I've read a lot of Oprah's Picks. Anything Wayne Dyer & inspiring.

Favorite Movies

Everything Star Trek, James Bond & oldies. We watch movies on tv mostly when we do. Foreign films are great! We mostly watch old movies on tv.

Favorite Crafts

Right now I'm really into scrapbooking, Knitting & Quilting. I like bright colors esp pink & lime green. Really like all shades of green. I'm not really into Christmas themes but I love Snowmen. I like Asian type fabric & prints, Amy Butler, Civil War prints & all Moda. like artsy creative kinds of things. Not so much the project as the challenge. I love to learn new techniques and apply them to what I'm working on. Just send me whatever colors you like! I'm working on knowing more about making ATC's & mini-zines.

Collections

I love Kawaii, postcards from all over, stickers, charms & kitchy stuff.

I love Halloween and the colors black, lime green & purple together. Love the "Day of the Dead" stuff. It's all so artsy looking.

I love to travel.
I collect postcards and "floatie" pens from all over.

I also have a Lady Bug Collection! Scary!

Please do not send Disney! Not a Mickey Fan. Please NO address labels as I've got Tons!

I swap with Swap-bot!

Comment: Thank you for sending on the P&P. I haven't worked on one that is separated horizontally like this before; it'll be a cool challenge. I love what you did! Also, thank you for the awesome envelope. I've been making personal junk journals using my favorite envelopes that I've received swaps in, and this one will be going into one of them. :)
Response: Wonderful. What a great idea for the junk journal. I save mine too. Thanks for the heart.

Comment: Thanks for the cool autumn themed envie. I wish it felt more like Fall around here--it's still over 100 in Phoenix today. Not our typical October weather.
