About Me

I always try to send swaps early but have had the misfortune of something getting lost in the mail. I want to be a dependable partner and welcome a message if something hasn't arrived when you think it should. I promise to resend as soon as possible.

I'm a retired RN with 5 children, 8 grandchildren and one great grandson who is growing up fast. I enjoy family get togethers, working on projects with friends and creating things.I read a lot but watch little TV.

Read mostly mysteries and some fav authors are James Patterson, John Sandford, Navada Barr and Earlene Fowler.

Favorite music is Classical, Christian and Country.

Favorite artwork is Vintage, Asian, Steampunk, Nature, Things with lots of color and just Black and white. Also enjoy embellishments and some glitter.

Dislike Occult,Nudes, Too cute, politics and very hot weather.

Favorite Crafts

I joined Swapbot for ATCs, inchies amd zentangles. In Delaware there isn't much interest in trading these things. I still love zentangle but my interest in paper crafts has really grown. I'm now making altered tags, zines, Postcards and other mail art. At my house most large cereal boxes turn into mixed media master boards and I have discovered the love of journals. I really enjoy Round Robin Journal swaps and find most partners put a lot of effort in every page.

I'd like to say something about extras. I do appreciate them but do not expect them nor do they influence ratings. I usually give a heart when someone puts a lot of thought and effort into a swap and always if I really like what is sent. I admit I do love getting Mini zines. I have a growing collection of them that started when one of my partners added one in with her swap. She also encouraged me to try one and finally I did.I got the courage to join a zine go round and am having so much fun adding to whatever has been started.

About Me

For the year 2021 my word is HOPE! I hope for peace, Covid19 to be under control,and more kindness for each other.

Comment: Great house Joan! I like the bright colors, I hope you had fun playing with them! It definitely takes time to get used to a new color palette; I also tend to gravitate toward the same combinations.
Response: Thanks for your lovely response and the heart! I am trying to be more adventurous and funky.. Steph was my partner tis time so that should be inspiring.

Hi Joan!

There are no perfect words which can describe the feeling of gratitude I feel towards my country. Proud to be an American.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne

Thank you so much for your lovely card! I am doing much much better. It did take about a month to feel normal again. I went for my first exercise bike ride today and did pretty good. Itโ€™s amazing how fast you lose it if you donโ€™t use it. Thanks for brightening my day!
