About Me

May 19, 2019 I have not been online in a few days and I am behind on sending out some swaps because I had to drop everything to care for my elderly (81 year old) dad. I sincerely apologize to everyone I owe a swap to and promise to get caught up ASAP. My plan is to have everything in the mail by Tuesday, May 21, at the latest.

UPDATE: I have recently experienced some major upsets in my life which caused me to get behind on sending out some swaps; thus the lower rating. All late swaps have now been sent out. If you have not received a swap from me and you feel you should have by now, please PM or email me before rating me down so we can work to resolve the issue.

Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding.

        *          *           *          *          *          *

I'm a mom of a 20-year-old daughter (wow that seems so strange to me still) and a 16-year-old son

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

Favorite Things

A few of my favorite things are: *Christmas *Seahorses *Mermaids *Sea stars *Sand dollars *Seashells *Washi tape *Birdhouses *The color aqua (like the ocean in the Caribbean) *Music (the 80s, classic rock, smooth jazz, 90s, country, reggae, blues, Celtic, pop, etc ) *Looking at the stars in the big Texas country sky *Dancing (although my kids tell me I'm no good at it) *Snail mail - I love post cards and handwritten letters *Swimming *Cooking/baking *My great-nephews and great-nieces (they are like my grandkids) *Cupcakes *Baskin-Robbins chocolate chip ice cream *Shopkins *Uncommon small toys (wind-up toys, light-up musical spinning tops, Jacob's Ladder wooden toy, tiny Tinkertoy set, wooden cup and ball toy, etc) *Autumn *Soft, snuggly throws (I could never have too many) *Hot chocolate (in assorted flavors) *A glass of good wine *Fireplaces *Snowflakes * Snowmen/women *Southern-style home cooking *Fun/silly socks *Dragonflys

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite TV programs are: *America's Got Talent *Making It *Take Two *Elementary *The Good Doctor *Dancing with the Stars * God Friended Me * Bull
* NCIS New Orleans

Shows I watch on Netflix: * Hart of Dixie * Death in Paradise * Bones * Royal Pains * The Great British Baking Show * Queer Eye * Magic for Humans *The Paradise

Favorite Movies

Favorite movies include: *Hope Floats *Dirty Dancing *Joyful Noise *Bad Company *El Dorado (John Wayne) *Open Range *Big Hero 6 *The Karate Kid (2010)
* Wayne's World * Night at the Roxbury

Dislikes

Call me old fashioned but I dislike: *Profanity *Facial/body piercings (small nose piercing is okay) *Sagging (pants) *Goth attire/makeup *Hip hop music *Occult and related items *Nudity/X-rated pics and items

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.

Comment: Thanks for your description of "Thanks for the Memories" and your comments about listening. I've only occasionally listened to books with more than one narrator but interestingly two of my three partners this time listened to multi-narrated books. I think I might actively seek some out -- I can see how it might add an extra dimension. (The best audiobook narrations are often a bit like mini-plays, even with a single narrator, so I can see the possibilities if you had more than one narrator.)
Response: Thank you so much for your comments. I like your description of the best audiobooks narrations - it is so true.☺ Thank you very much for your rating and the heart! 💕

Comment: Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts! :) I haven't read or listened to that book, but I might have to add it to my growing list. :) Sometimes I don't know how I managed before audio books! :)
Response: Thank you so much for your rating and the heart! It is definitely an "interesting" book. I don't know that I would have stuck with it if I had been reading it instead of listening to it.

Comment: It's always nice to let someone do the "reading" for you and just listen to the book!
Response: Thank you for your rating and the heart! I will definitely be listening to more books now.

Comment: Thanks for the lovely PC. Lucky and Chance are adorable!
Response: Thank you so much for your rating and the heart! Lucky and Chance are VERY special to me; I enjoyed sharing their picture with you. I think they are a fine example of what people miss if they don't adopt "rescue kitties". I can't imagine my life without them.

2019 Profile Hello #7 Hello! My favorite place is the beach also but it is my husband's least favorite. I don't get to go as often as I like but he does give in occasionally. Good luck with your postcard designing. That is something I have been interested in myself but have never really tried. I hope you have a wonderful day.
