About Me

UPDATE: I have recently experienced some major upsets in my life which caused me to get behind on sending out swaps. All late swaps have now been sent out. The two recent "1" ratings have been addressed with the recipients; I hope to have these cleared up soon. If you have not received a swap from me and you feel you should have by now, please PM or email me and I will give you a status report and if necessary will re-send the missing swap.

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


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.

JATWCT: Are you a brussel sprout lover?

Hi Myra,

I LOVE sprouts. I love all sprouts including brussels. I like the taste and I envision all the healthy benefits such as nutrition, fiber, and protein. They have cancer fighting powers like SuperFood Powers! And they are high in calcium and protein.


BasketWorks15 on Dec 11, 2018:

Are you a sprout lover or hater swap:

I lobe brussell sprouts any time of year. In face I just had some at my first holiday event that was fried in truffle sauce. Amazing.

Merry Christmas! Sunny BasketWorks15

JATWCT: Are You A Sprout Lover Or Hater?

we always have a couple of sprouts on our christmas dinner her in england, However none of us are keen.

The only time i liked spouts what when i was pregnant! I would microwave a bowl full and eat them with salt whilst watching tv LOL

Fifthcorner on Dec 4, 2018:

Welcome! It was a joy to read your profile. And especially wonderful to see another Christian on here! I also have a 20 year old, but a boy, and he's still my "baby." I look forward to future swaps with you. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas. God bless!

Newbie Friendly - Profile Hello #22

Hello there! I am happy that you find watercolor painting to be a medium that you are currently enjoying c: I bought some watercolor blank postcards and also watercolor pencils, but I am not sure how to use these watercolor pencils! Are there any recommendations or online websites that you used to learn how to watercolor from? I would d love to learn more about this medium and the best watercolor brands to invest in as well. Wishing you and your family a wonderful last month of the year c:

AuTiger on Nov 30, 2018:

Hello! Love reading your profile and seeing the similarities we have. I have a 30 year old daughter...hard to believe. I love Hope Floats and Christmas is a big deal in our house. I have spent the week cleaning and getting decorations down and out. In the south we decorate inside and out. My daughter just bought her first house and we got her lights out and mail box decorated...yep we do that in our area. Hope your season is the brightest one yet! Kids grow up, however ever age is great at Christmas time! Bye!
