About Me

1/5/17 - Several days ago the town snowplow took out my mailbox that was full of outgoing swaps. Everything spewed out and many blew down the street or were run over by cars. I believe I found it all but if you are missing a swap from me please contact me and I will resend right away. Happy Snowy New Year to me, lol.

I am learning to zentangle. I scrapbook, paper craft, make jewelry and do tole painting (decorative Painting). I also know how to tat, a lost art of lace making. I have just started to do counted cross stitch and I love doing it. I get better with each project I do (mostly bookmarks so far),

I joined a Adult Coloring Club at my local library and it is great fun. The meetings are wonderful and everyone enjoys themselves.

If for any reason you haven't received a swap item from me, please let me know. Glancing at other profiles, it looks like it's important to mention this! I'm pretty conscientious and organized and would never flake although I do often send towards the end of a swap due to a busy life. I love my husband, kids and their spouses and my grandchildren. This is my long-haired dachshund Zoey at 13 weeks and then 10 months. She is a real live wire. Zoey at 13 weeksZoey at 10 months

Favorite Crafts

I love cross stitch and subscribe to almost every magazine, even the ones from the UK. I just bought a Fantasy Cross Stitch Magazine that has several great Unicorn patterns. I just have to get brave enough to try one. So far I have only cross stitched on aida 14ct and 16ct. The 16 ct is a black hand towel and it is challenging. Any hints for working on dark fabric are very welcome. I love anything handmade, especially with paper. I love handmade postcards and cards as well as store bought postcards and greeting cards. I especially like art postcards, architecture, autumn, waterfall and nature postcards. I like stamps and use them in my art, scrapbooking and altered books. I love beading and making my own jewelry. I like using seed beads and using the different beading techniques like Peyote stitch and brick stitch. I really want to learn to make my own beaded beads if I can just find the time, lol. I do Altered Books, and have 4 going right now. I really like using washi tape in my artwork so any samples you want to send would be great. You can never have to much washi tape, lol. I also like doing ATC's in a wide variety of themes. I am learning to zentangle, working on 3.5 by 3.5 squares and ATC's. Here is a postcard I did for a swap. I am improving but it is going slow. I would welcome anyone's zentangle. I love making and getting things with flowers, birds and butterflies or other flying insects such as dragonflies. I love fairies and other fantasy animals such as unicorns. I also know how to tat but really have not done it for several years. I also love any dachshund images and have a scrapbook for my dog that I put the images in.

Holidays I Love

I love Halloween images and stickers , especially pumpkins with unusual faces and black cats. I love candy corn pictures and stickers too. I have a Halloween themed Altered Book that I am currently working on and adding received art too. I have Halloween jewelry that I wear the entire month of Oct. I love thanksgiving, cute turkeys, pictures of laden tables and pilgrims. I add these things to my fall scrapbook.

Christmas is also a favorite. I love Santa Clause and Father Christmas pictures of all kinds.Pictures of Christmas trees. (even magazine pictures.) I have a Christmas themed Altered book that I work on year round. I also start wearing Christmas Jewelry on November 1st so I can wear it all. I love holiday jewelry and am always on the look out for it.

For Valentines day I like vintage images and cards. They don't need to be the actual cards, there are wonderful downloads out there of all kinds that I use.

St Patrick's day is another great holiday, Leprechaun and clover pictures being my favorite here.

For Easter I love decorated eggs. (Pictures of them or real blown shells.) I actually collect egg cups and decorated eggs to go in them, I have several wooden eggs but no blown shell eggs. I would welcome any decorated egg.

My Favorite Colors

I love pink especially the soft pastel colors, I do like all pastel colors. I love autumn colors like browns and oranges. The leaves changing on trees are so beautiful. I always welcome photos of leaves and have a scrapbook dedicated to fall. I really love all colors.

Favorite Books

I love mysteries and sci-fi books. I like the J.D. Robb Death series. I am currently reading David Baldacci's King and Maxwell books. I loved the Harry Potter books and the Narnia books. I also read a lot of art books (about altered art and mixed media). I love our local library and our kids laugh at us because we visit libraries in other cities and sit in them and read books they have, My husband likes genealogy and other libraries have different things in their archives dealing with that. I just read their art books.

Jewelry

I make and sell jewelry. I especially like to make and sell eyeglass leashes, although I have none in my shop right now. I have many for my own personal use, I can pretty much match all my clothes with one or another of them. I still buy a few, as well as bead more. I would welcome any kind of beaded eyeglass leashes, necklaces or earrings. I like my jewelry on the small dainty side to medium.

A great deal of my jewelry is handmade. I always welcome handmade jewelry. I have pierced ears.

Favorite Television

I watch a lot of TV. We have a DVR and we record all of the shows that are on after our bedtime. (we get up early) I like game shows and I watch Price Is Right, Lets Make A Deal everyday, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy ever night I can. I like all of the mystery shows The CSI's, NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, NCIS New Orleans, Castle, etc. I like 2 Broke Girls, Mom, Big Bang Theory, and Brooklyn 99. I also like The Closer, Murder in the First, I watch The Voice. I watched both Ice Road Truckers and Deadliest Catch when they were on, but they too, may be over. I watch Longmire and we got NetFlix just so we could watch it. Turns out there are other shows on there that are great. I also watch Dr. Who and Torchwood as well as Dark Matter and Killjoys on BBC America. I watch a lot of the shows on Sci Fi Channel too. Continuum, Warehouse 13, Haven, Lost Girl and Defiance.

Foods I like

First let me say, I am allergic to nothing.

I don't really like fish.

I have a single cup coffee maker and Pumpkin K-cups and Blueberry are favorites. I don't do De-caf but if you send it I will pass it along. I am open to trying other flavors of K-cups. I occasionally drink tea and I love the Celestial type teas, especially berry flavors. I just discovered Peach tea at my coloring club meeting. Umm.

I love candy and gum. I would welcome locally made (in your area) candies or gums.

I love fruit and vegetables and have been working to get more in my diet. I do good on the fruit but vegetables are a challenge for me. I am a meat eater and love to cook. I don't bake a lot any more except around Christmas. Holiday cookies are a must make for me.

Wish list...

*Bookmarks of all kinds and especially love ones from libraries or bookstores.

*Book Pages especially in a language or old dictionary and encyclopedia pages.

*Smash book Items

*Postcards

*Ticket stubs

*Tatting Shuttle

*Thimbles

*Letter Opener

*Coloring pages and books (There are so many).

*Anything from or similar to things on my Amazon Wish list or Etsy Wish list. On Etsy I have many boards but for swap-bot I have a $10 and less board, $8 and less board and $5 and less board. Gently used items are fine.

Postcards...

I like my postcards sent naked except for sports postcards (stadiums, teams, other sports). I like sports postcards sent in an envelope.

*Postcards - any including ad/free, tourist and I love waterfalls. I would love any baseball, football, soccer or any other sports postcards. Also love autumn postcards and flower postcards. Holiday postcards too.

Comment: Thank you SO SO SO much for this awesome magazine, and the free kit that comes with it is the absolute perfect gift to make for a special friend of mine! I hardly ever buy magazines here, they cost twice as much here. If I wanted to buy all the crafts magazines one month I could get round trip plane tickets to the UK, buy them there and save money. Sadly I'm not kidding or exaggerating!
Response: I know, that's why I try to send the magazines for you and any other swap partner I get. Thank you for the heart
