About Me

Swap U.S.A. only, due to cost and the time factor...

NOTE: 01/2021 I have Vision Problem (double vision in one eye from a past head injury) When handwriting, PLEASE PRINT as I have difficulty reading some cursive penmanship & please use only black or blue ink pens.

NOTE: I now have a 3 - This should have been at least a 5 - I met all the swap rules & mailed before time - Please read my response below - ) This was a swap for Fall Items, which I sent, This is All she had listed for crafts......doing red work, making baskets, crosswords and jumble puzzles???? NOTE: The Host of this swap contacted the ADM. to explain, she did not follow the rules..for rating. I guess some people are just unhappy and expect more from others?

I do not list "flakers" but I have had several.....

. ************************ Retired and love it - Do volunteer work with the library & some at our Senior Center and our Church Food Pantry.

  • all 3 Sons are grown, have one wonderful daughter in-law & One super grandson.

    I have started a Reading Journal... I LOVE Pinterest - Spend too many hours looking all the interesting boards! Learning to "write" a few short stories and just simple essays - I enjoy writing by prompts or by looking at a picture & turning it into a story.

    Do some sewing but mostly by hand. Like to make Fabric Wall Hangings - love to embroidery

Still enjoy painting on the mini canvas with Acrylics . Have also gotten caught up in the "Adult Coloring" books....find myself coloring when I should be doing other things....:)

Always have been a Big Movie Buff - I also love to read, always have a book or 2 waiting on me during my quite time.

Have 2 new, to me, crafts for 2022.....I am going to work on a "Threaded" journal this year. Found new crafts on FB and joined the clubs to learn. If you like hand sewing, you may want to check them out...... Also "Slow Stitching" -

Favorite Music

Very easy with music! Must admit, I don't really listen to the "old" C&W music.

..Music is always playing while working on crafts.....

Love the Rock from 70's & 80's.

R&B

Enjoy listening to Piano Music....

Favorite Movies

Have been a "Movie Buff" all my life !!!

A variety of movies, not just one type - And have a nice collection of DVD's & Bluerays....

. Action, Drama , some Comedy, some Musicals, Sy Fy, some Horror , a Romance ever so often..

It does seem to me that many of the "new" movies just don't have the great Actors/Actresses anymore...just a point of view statement.

The Hobbit

Lord of The Rings (all 3)

Jurassic Park (all)

Tombstone

Beetle Juice

And many others...

Favorite Books

I enjoy a wide variety of reading - Many different topics & subjects

From James Patterson to Traci Peterson - really like to discover new authors.

Also poetry and/or Christian books

Please, Please NO Harliquim books.....

Please, NO smoke smells in the books - that smell just does not go away..

..

Exercise

Love to walk for exercise.

And always on the "look-out" for something to photograph!

And my weekly "yoga" class.

And a little "Dancing" helps also

Comment: Hi Jean, I really enjoyed reading your review of 'A House for Mr Biswas'. It sounds like it was a slow read but hopefully worth the time and effort. I've not read any of Naipaul's books -- I've ended up reading 'To Sir with Love' for the swap which I'm enjoying, although it is very much of its time. Thank you for joining the swap!
Response: Thank you for the heart & rating - Fun swaps - The book was highly praised but I don't know maybe it was just me but so, so slow to read.

I had the pleasure of opening a stocking stuffer from you today. TF January 2021 Stocking stuffer swap was pulled from my assortment of items and got opened as I unwrap a present a day during Advent. OH THE BEAUTIFUL SILVER BRACLET. I just LOVE it. It is so very ME. I am going to wear this daily. Thank you so very much. Merry Christmas and thank you for joining my swaps. Hope to see you join during 2022 as I will continue hosting these stocking stuffer ones.
