I now live in Orlando what a year of adjustment. I have 3 dogs now Doxie 6yrs old she is my heart her name is Pretzel American Bulldog named Egypt she has a face only mother could love and the latest member of my family Ninja 6yrs Pharaoh hound she can climb a tree she came attached to the love of my life Tony he is a sweet good soul and I am very happy to have him in my life.By the touch of god I also have 3 children in my life i never thought I would have.Serena 16,Tristan 15, and Zoey 12 They are not mine by birth but they are mine by choice and sometimes that is the best way. and last Celia she is still kicking at 78 and for those who know her on here her health and depression have taken a turn for the better as Ninja has become her constant companion.big crazy family i never expected but how sweet it is.

My other love is mixed media- favorite and friend is Sally Jean Alexander she is the sodering queen her book is Pretty Little Things, Michael De Mang he also has several great books you should check out Also could check out www.Michaeldemang.com,DJ Peddit you can view her work at http://djpettitt.blogspot.com I hope if your reading my profile you check out these great artists.

About Me

My favorite color is Blue and any color close to the blue family and I did not include movies and TV because I prefer books and people although the movies are fun another thing so wide ranging it would be hard to give favorites.

likes and dislikes

I am very open to anything you would like to send me and I would never complain if someone puts thought into an item they think I will like I love homemade the most it shows you went into the most expencive thing you have and gave me some of it that thing is time and if you bestow some of yours on me I am humbled.

starhiker rated for Secret Compartment Doll on Apr 8, 2016
Comment: Two days after the "send by" date you let me know you were going to send soon. Okay, then two weeks later I got interesting doll but it didn't have a secret compartment. I contacted you and you told me you'd do a resend, Couple weeks later I left a comment on your profile abput the resend and you contacted me and told me you were going to send the next day. That was a week ago and so far no doll yet. I understand your position I'm care giver to two and have a side job as well so we're both busy to the same extent. I just want to archive the swap, it should have been archived a month ago. I let you slide on being late to send but I want to move this from my list of current swaps. Add: I think I have been pretty patient in waiting. You brought up being a care giver as part of the reason you didn't send on time that's why I mentioned I'm one also. 4/27 Resend never arrived.
Response: Wow I preferred to conduct my business and private especially anything to do with being a caregiver but thank you

grandmaroro rated for HC: The 1st DeStash Swap of 2015 on Feb 20, 2015
Comment: Dana - I am not a stickler on the lateness issue - life happens. As long as there is some correspondence letting me know what is going on and I receive the swap, I am a happy camper. A happy camper in no way describes the overwhelming excitement on the receipt of your package. Girl, you went so far above and beyond the requirements, I am just beside myself. So many goodies that I have never seen before, I can hardly wait to put it all to use. Just fascinated by the little silicone pad, the atcs are super, I'm putting the cutter and the perforater in my purse, the slim pad of images is wonderful, --- I could go on and on and on. Thank you so much. One heart is just not enough. Please know that I love it all. My daughter and I are going to a scrapbooking retreat next weekend, this wonderful collection is going with me. :-)
Response: So happy you liked everything Little silicone pad is from Stamping up you should check their website for ways to use it you can make embellishments with hot glue it's the most amazing thing I've ever seen

Comment: Thank you for the swap goodness! I love the tags, they're very pretty. And thanks so much for the extra rubber stamps. It's so cool you sent dragons, as my son was born on the year of the dragon and very much loves dragon stuff, so I plan to make him something using those stamps. :)
Response: Happy you liked it
