This and That

***** Hello Swap Bot Friends ~

2018 continues with me adjusting to the loss of my soulmate, husband, father, PaPa, and friend which has has shaken our family to its very core. We are eternally grateful for all of the kindness and support we received as we came up on the first anniversary - August 17th 2017 - of our nightmare.

The loss of anyone you know has the potential to change your world view on others and life itself. I continue on my healing journey with a renewed view on life & opportunities.............

Personally - the opportunity to be kinder to myself and realize it is okay to have tears appear from nowhere......

For others - be kind to one another and take the opportunity to treat others as you would want to be treated.

For the world - a better understanding of human kind and the many diversities that exist.

About Me

Widowed after being married for 33 years to a heroic firefighter - the love of my life and soulmate.

Mother of three; 1 son, 2 daughters - all grown and Nana of two little boys 7 and 5.

I love to travel to warm climates. Cruising is one of my favorites - I love the islands.

I am a retired social worker having retired on November 30, 2016 after 14 years in child welfare.

I am a homebody and love to sip on dry red wine!

Favorite Crafts

I love:

Paper Crafting recently working on journals, loaded envelopes and making my own embellishments.

Jewelry Making I have taken a little break on the traditional bead, chain and eye pins and working on unusual materials from around the house.

I like- but cannot do - knitting, crocheting, fine arts as I have arthritis in my fingers :( I recently bought some looms to try again because I think this is beautiful art and sometimes a lost art.

RIGHT NOW - my all time - out of the closet craft - is quilling..... jewelry, pictures, cards, etc.

Just Because...

I love many things and try many things.... at times I like to walk, other times I like to go for a ride....

I like the quiet of the woods, and sound of the seashore...........but the laughter of my children and grandchildren are the best!

Most recently started making journals .. big snd small; junk and diary like and childrenโ€™s time. Would love any ideas you have to pass along!!

People are mostly awesome!

Favorites

I love the color blue (all shades) and the combination of black and white. Pretty much the only color I am not overly fond of is pink - but even then - I use it!

My favorite animal is a dog - I have a mixed pup named Maggy. I think she is part rabbit and part shepherd. And now have a Granpup named Max. He is a little mixed up ball of fur - but soooo adorable.

My favorite season is Fall - I love the crisp air, wearing sweaters, and the changing of the leaves.

Crafting Supplies

I am inundated with paper die cuts, stickers, etc. I have been sifting through and donating to our local Y for the children's upcoming summer camp.

I love ink pads and double sided paper and looking forward to finding some new art ideas out there by way of materials, inks, paints, etc. I love the look of Tim Holtz and Graphic 45 but it is a tad expensive for my budget.

Hello, Very nice to meet you - I'm really excited to be a part of this new paper crafting group. I went to college near where you are from so i am a bit familiar with your neck of the woods. Pink is one of my favorite colors, but I won't hold that against you :-P I really enjoyed reading your profile and look forward to getting to know you better!

Re: Getting to Know You Hi. I sent an email instead of putting the note down here. Sorry, I'm still learning this format. Have a great day.

Hi! I'm excited to be a part of this new paper crafting group with you. I just love making new things with paper and being creative. Like you, I also love dogs and the colour blue. Max sounds adorable. I have been wanting to make a dog themed flipbook or pocket letter for a while and just haven't gotten around to it yet. Soon! Can't wait to swap with you in our new group.

I'm so excited to be in this new group, Addicted to Paper with you! I agree about pink, not my favorite color, but I'll still use it. I love being outdoors too, and now that the weather is warning up I can take my 7 month old out with me! Can't wait to swap with you! For: getting to know you
