January 1, 2013 Walked the 5K Resolution Run/Walk event this morning. What a great way to start the New Year! Thanks be to God and to my wonderful husband/kidney donor, Jack, in 2008. On January 31 we celebrated five full years since our operations. December 12, 2012 Married 42 years to my sweetheart. April 16, 2012: Celebrated my 65th birthday today! Cat lover (though cat-less at the moment). Public librarian for 26 years; Church librarian for 19 years. Devotee of British crime and mystery television series.
Used to be quilting (still have 12 drawers of 100% cotton pre-washed fabric). Now paper crafts, esp ATCs and book/bookmark making, collage. Starting to do some art journalling. Want to do some stitching on paper. Favorite supplies include glue stick, ATG, glitter glue (in moderation), chalk inks, Xacto knife, Bind-it-all, composition books to alter. Like to add beads, words, occasional stamped images, mostly swirls and abstracts
Classics like Man in the White Suit, Lavender Hill Mob, Captain's Paradise, Kind Hearts and Coronets (all Alec Guinness); Wizard of Oz, Gone with the Wind, Tale of two cities, It's a Wonderful Life, Christmas Carol (Alistair Sim, early 1950s).
More modern titles: Speed, Fargo, Terminator (the first in the series)
I read (well, dip into) a lot of non-fiction - odd history, biography, personal travel. In fiction, right now I prefer British historical mysteries - Bernard Cornwell (prehistoric through medieval), Bernard Knight (Crowner John), Kate Sedley (Roger the Chapman). I also enjoy listening to books on CD, esp Lawrence Sanders' McNally titles, read by Boyd Gaines, and PG Wodehouse read by Ian Carmichael. Once I start a series/author, I want to read them all. I'm also discovering some very good young adults novels.
Anything to do with libraries (bookmarks, old checkout receipts, postcards, etc); postage stamps esp those with people or flowers; lavender - colour, scent, plant, lavender fairies; handmade paper; collages, ATCs, inchies; pictures of weird inventions; cartoons and comic strips; cats; odd ephemera - fortune cookie slips, weight machine fortunes; ticket stubs, bus transfers, ads, pages from large atlases; bookmarks; green, blue, purple, and rainbow anything. I've been looking and looking for stickers of tuxedo cats about 1/2" height. If you see any, I'd appreciate knowing the manufacturer - or even receiving a packet. Many thanks.

Werewolves, zombies, vampires; cutesy stickers (except tuxedo cats as above); anti-Christian sentiments; off-colour humour. No food/tea/coffee or cosmetics, thanks.
