About Me

****We've had sketchy mail service for months now - so I'm sure some of the mail has gone astray, so please, if you haven't received something from me, (or I've sent the wrong thing), please let me know - I'm always happy to resend.****

I'm a senior software implementer who works from home full time now. My business travel days are over. My husband and I have no children. We dine out frequently and make Home Chef meals 3 times a week. I love things in rich jewel tones, like emerald and sapphire, and pastels, like pale yellows, pinks, greens and blues, elegant, classic, romantic, pretty, eclectic, cottage style, but nothing too cutesy (unless it's baby animals - they can't be too cute). While I love dogs and have had them in the past, I currently have cats, multiple cats - 3 male, 3 female. The latest addition is a beautiful, mostly white, male rag doll who is getting huge and has outpaced my two male Burmese. And I thought they were big!

Favorite Music

Soft rock, new age, classic rock, celtic, old standards, classical, movie sound tracks and jazz.

Favorite Movies

Casablanca, Enchanted April, anything by Alfred Hitchcock, old classic black and white movies. Anything animated. Period Pieces with gorgeous costumes. Sci-fi like The Fifth Element, Star Trek and Star Wars, just about anything but horror.

Favorite Television

The only show I watch on a regular basis is 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'. I watch documentaries on Curiosity Stream. Also shows on History, Discovery, PBS, Nat Geo, Smithsonian, DYI or Biography that teach me something I didn't know. I've fallen in love with Korean RomComs, Dramas - modern and historical, K-pop, Flower Boys, etc on Hulu and Viki. I'm even learning a few words in Korean! Kamsa Hamnida. (Thank you). I also enjoy Chinese, Thai, Japanese and Taiwanese shows and movies.

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, quilting, paper crafts (collage, cards, ATCs etc), crochet, altered art, paper mache, painting, woodwork, clay, bead work, cross stitch, needlepoint, doll making. You name it, I'll try my hand at it.

My Likes and Dislikes

I realized my profile doesn't really have enough info to help someone trying to decide what to send me so I thought I'd make a list of my likes and dislikes.

~~LIKES~~

Postcards - I like all kinds of post cards - vintage, art, advert, travel, recycled, handmade - just about anything except ones with vulgar humor or overly religious ones.

Ephemera of any kind - old photos, sheet music, pages out of books, interesting magazine clippings, used greeting cards, postcards, brochures, programs, certificates, maps - old or new, paper with inclusions, tags, etc. If it's made from paper I'll take it.

Birds - Loons, Bluebirds, Sparrows and Owls, especially, but any kind

Seahorses and Sea Dragons, Jellyfish, Sea shells, Starfish - pictures, photos, toys, stuffies, etc

Hedgehogs and Penquins and Horses and Otters

Baby animals of any kind

People who leave pretty pictures and comments on my profile!

Vintage thread crocheted potholders

Ladies handkerchiefs - old and new

Embellishments - sequins, buttons, ribbon, yarn, game pieces, brads, cut outs, etc, etc, etc

Miniature anything

Old linens - even ones with holes and stains that have interesting bits that can be salvaged

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers and all things gardening

Quilting stuff - especially little handmade quilted things like needle cases, pin cushions, coin purses, eyeglass cases, ornaments, etc

Chocolate, Tea, Chocolate, Salt Water Taffy, Chocolate, Nuts, Chocolate and Chocolate

~~DISLIKES~~

Candles - but only because I'm allergic to the smoke, so I can't burn them

Anything that smells of cigarette smoke - once again I'm allergic

Incense - see above

Heavy, pungent scents like attar of roses because they make me sneeze, though light flower scents don't seem to bother me

Comment: Plain? Oh my goodness, not at all! ♥ These ATC are perfect! I love how the Christmas one looks like the wrapping paper my mother in law spends ages on, and how the layered ATC looks like the way my housemate decorates her garden. And that third ATC is so bright and fun! It's my favorite! I had to take it out of the sleeve and touch it; the contrasting textures are so cool!
Response: I'm so glad you like them - Thank you for the heart! Happy Swapping!
