About Me

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?

UPDATED: 06/2020

NOTE: I try to have any swap I join created/read before the last day to "sign up" to be sure it is possible for me - I send early and I do plan/think about each swap.

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

    Always keep a yearly Journal & have started a Reading Journal... I have some new interest that I would like to learn more and use more........I LOVE Pinterest - Spend too many hours looking all the interesting boards!

Learning to "write" a few short stories and just simple essays - maybe a journal of my life for the boys to read someday.

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

Painting on canvas with Acrylics (this is new to me, have always used oils) and having fun with it.... 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.

Like working with all types of Journals, Glue books ...Planners - And did I say: A Big List Maker. !!!! Really a "paper" crafter !!!

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.


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 the "new" movies just don't have the great plot anymore...just a point of view statement.

The Hobbit

Lord of The Rings (all 3)

Jurassic Park (all)


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

Always ready for a good mystery -

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



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
