About Me

I'm a retired nurse of 20 years. I now teach computer classes for senior citizens and love every second of it! My husband and I own a computer business that offers upgrades, repairs, web design, and custom systems.

I have a college age daughter. I am happily married to my soul mate, who I met online 12 years ago. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our fur-babies...3 Pomeranians and our 4 cats. Life is noisy and hairy at our house!

I enjoy paper crafts of almost every kind. Mostly 3-D items, and my passion right now is mini books, chunky books, etc. I love to incorporate charms, buttons, anything unique into my albums.

I have a Yahoo Group where we exchange rolodex cards as ATC's. It has been so much fun. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rolodexatcjams. I do find sometimes ATC's can be overwhelming and I tend to get a little behind.

I would love to swap some so I could share the enjoyment.

Important I will never flake on a swap. If you didn't get an item I've sent or it isn't up to your liking please email me before rating. I will do my best to make sure you get something as nice or better than expected. I will do the same. I'd rather ask than rate low...."If I can't say something nice....I'll keep my yapper shut" :)

Comment: Thank you so much for my mini journal! I was pleasantly surprised when I opened your package. I was just mentioning to my husband that I had not heard from you. He handed me the mail and there was my journal. Thank you so much. I loved the extras too, especially the pink flowers. I will put those flower cut-outs to good use immediately. I hope you are feeling better and better. Take care.
