About Me

Hubby is a associate pastor with youth and children. Serving God by working with His kids is such a blessing. Getting to serve side by side with Arnold is such a blessing.

Our youngest son, 17, and I spend a lot of time together as I homeschool. We adopted one of the amazing kiddos we had in foster care at our previous positions.

Our other two children are grown. Our oldest, a wonderful daughter runs a recreational athletic program in her town. She also does dog therapy work with her great Bassett mix, Flash.

Our middle, a son, has three children of his own. Our two grandsons have August birthdays like hubby, their daddy and I. Our precious granddaughter was born in March.

Random Weirdness about me.

I am allergic to chocolate and mushrooms.

I have arthritis,CRPS and fibromyalgia which slows me down, but doesn't stop me.

I grew up in the north, but now live in Florida. And we moved down here to take a job, not to retire.

Candles burning in my house makes me happy.

I LOVE to rearrange furniture; it tortures me to leave it for more than a month or two at a time. Our current house does not really have many options so I am going nuts trying to figure out what I can rearrange.

Birds creep me out. Seriously, they terrify me.

I'm addicted to my planner. I have finally settled (at least for now) on the Classic size Happy Planner.

I had never seen washi until I discovered Swap-Bot.

Things I would love to receive

*Fabric of any size, shape, color, style, or pattern. I am obsessed with quilting and fabric crafting. Some of my favorites are polka dots, purples, and plaids. Any dog-related fabric is also awesome!

*Sewing supplies like thread, pins, quilt batting, interfacing, buttons, and any other sewing items you have but will never use. Even open, partial packages are such a sweet blessing to receive.

*Grandma items as I am a proud "Grammy"

*Washi Tape or any color, pattern, or words.

*Anything Curious George. A few years ago for our anniversary my hubby bought me a large hardbound book with several Curious George stories bound together. Best gift ever!

Things I prefer NOT to receive

I really hate to have this section, but with my medical history I must.

Please nothing scented. This includes perfumes, lotions, anything! My fibromyalgia makes me extremely sensitive to smell. What seems pleasant and mild to you could cause me problems.

For the same reason, please do not send anything with smoke or mildew residue or smell. I have had a couple serious reactions.

And on the weird side, I am allergic to chocolate so I may be the only woman on the planet who would not like to receive chocolate.

I am a Christian so I prefer not to receive anything that is in opposition to my faith. But don't worry, if you do, forgive and move forward is my motto.

My Craftiness

My first love is quilting and sewing. I love the creativeness and variety that comes with this great art form. I love sewing items like Bible covers, pillows, curtains, mug rugs, pot holders, tote bags, and other little surprises for friends and family and sometimes strangers.

I began paper crafting when I joined Swap-bot, but I am liking the fun of creating my own cards to share. I have always loved sending cards, and creating my own is so much fun!

I am really in love with ATC's and how creative so many of my partners have been. This is such a fun art form as they do not take a ton of time or supplies, but allow for unlimited creativity.

Comment: I'm excited to add to your zine!
Response: Thank you for the heart! Have fun. I love working on zines in themes I didn't choose.
Comment: Omgoodness ChrisAnne, thank you for such a unique card and I have to tell you, it is adorable. I am afraid I am not a fan of Ferris Wheels. I think they are pretty, but not for me to ride on. I don't do roller coasters etc either. I have an equilibrium problem. I love heights, but not moving ones. I would be interested to know how you made the ferris wheel. The card is very special to me. Thank you so much.
Response: I'm so glad you like it! I don't make a lot of cards so I was nervous hosting this swap. I made the ferris wheel by importing an image I found online to my Cricut. I've been trying to learn more about this machine I've had for a couple of years. Thank you so much for the encouragement!
Comment: I like your pink take on this challenge. Thank you.
Response: Thank you for the heart. Have a great Valentine’s Day.
Comment: Thanks for the yellow & gold goodies. I love the dog washi!
Response: I'm glad you like your goodies.
Comment: Thanks for sending Lori's PC! Cheers.
Response: Thank you for the heart!
