About Me

UPDATE: I am running g behind on rating swaps. This is partly due to procrastination and partly because I'm on vacation right now. I will be returning home the evening of Wednesday, July 17. I plan to spend the next couple days catching up on rating swaps.

If you have not received a swap from me and you feel you should have, please PM or email me before rating me down so we can work to resolve the issue.

PET PEEVE: Non-raters - I am owed ratings by quite a few swappers for several different swaps. If you swap with me PLEASE RATE PROMPTLY!

UPDATE: I have recently experienced some major upsets in my life which caused me to get behind on sending out some swaps; thus the 3s and lower rating. All late swaps have now been sent out and I am working on bringing my rating back up. Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding.

I'm a mom of a 20-year-old daughter and a 17-year-old son. They both live at home with me and my mom.

I am a Christian but I am NOT judgmental. It is not my place to judge others because I am far from perfect myself. Please don't feel like you can't swap with me if you are not Christian because I enjoy swapping with everyone.

I am an avid reader and my favorite genres are mysteries, thrillers, Christian fiction, light romance, YA, and adventure

I live in east Texas but am originally from Dallas (30+ years there)

I love to listen to music and enjoy a wide range of musical styles

I enjoy having "family movie night" and try to fit this in at least twice a month

My favorite place is the beach

I love animals and share my home with five cats, two of which are mine

I'm not much of a tea drinker and due to a medical condition I can only have very limited amounts of caffeine at one time which I prefer to consume in the form of chocolate

I have enjoyed crafting since I was a child and my grandmother taught me to make flowers out of tissues. I also like to make things for gifts, i.e., latch hook rug, decorated candles, handcrafted jewelry, shadowbox with memorabilia, dragon eggs and potion bottles, a tutu, wreaths, etc. I have tried my hand at many mediums over the years but didn't really love anything I did. Recently I started playing around with designing my own postcards and bookmarks, dabbling with watercolor painting, and creating paper collages and I am loving it. I think I may have found my niche in papercrafting. It is still relatively new to me but I am having a blast learning about this medium.

I will continue to update my profile as I think of more things to add/revise about myself

M: Mermaids, Music (I have varied tastes that include the 80s, classic rock, smooth jazz, 90s, country, reggae, blues, Celtic, pop, etc ), My great-nephews and great-nieces (they are like my grandkids), Manatees

N: Notecards, Nature


P: Papercrafting, Postcards, Purple hull peas,


R: Roses (they remind me of my grandmother), Roasting marshmallows over an open fire

S: Sand dollars, Seahorses, Seashells, Sea stars (do you "sea" a pattern here ;-p), Snail mail, Swimming, Shopkins, Soft, snuggly throws (I could never have too many), Snowflakes, Snowmen/women, Southern-style home cooking, Socks (fuzzy/decorated/fun/silly, unique), Singing, Scentsy warmer and wax melts

DISCLAIMER: This list is not meant to offend anyone. I am not judgmental and I totally believe in self-expression whatever form that may take. These are just my personal feelings and even my own two kids don't totally agree with me about some of these things. I have chosen to share my dislikes (and also my likes) only as a means of helping people learn more about me.

Profile hello from all over #1

Hello Myra!

Your profile - EXCELLENT - :-) Guess what film I also like ;-)

But one thing makes me wonder: You describe your dislikes, and you say, your children don't totally agree with you about some of these things. Hmmmm, what are your kids like? Pierced, wearing saggings and goth makeup while listening to hip hop?? I see, too much fantasy in my head...

Happy Swapping!
