About Me

NOTE: I only swap in the US - due to mail so slow & the cost of international.

I had a bad fall a few years ago, which left me with double vision, so I try to type everything. If you send me a written swap, please type or use a black/blue ink pen for easier reading. I also try to complete the swap before partners are assigned, to be sure, I can complete.

.I am working on living in a new town - Still have to sort many items - But I am ready to get back with "swapping".!

I have no idea what happened to my profile but once again, I will write - Mother of 3 grown boys (all live in different states) - 1 grandson - the only girl is my DIL and she is a big help to me on many different levels.

I enjoy learning new crafts and almost anything to do with paper. Reading & watching movies are Big with me. I also like Adult Coloring books. Always photography, love nature/clouds, etc. Enjoy writing with prompts. May add more later but all for now!!!

Favorite Crafts

Jigsaw Puzzles

Word Search - Fill Ins - Sudoku

Stickers (no Disney/tiny/teachers)

Photography ..

Painting/Adult Coloring


Writing short stories/essays (always need pencils/pen)

Reading Journal


Religious cards ( I am Catholic so like prayer cards)


Coloring Books

Fabric Scraps for hand sewing

Cross Stitch patterns/kits

Hot Pads (any color)

Anything Handmade

Always ready to learn something new .!!


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 & 90'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 many of the "new" movies just don't have the great Actors/Actresses anymore...just a point of view statement.

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 Harlequin books.. (print is too small) ...

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


Love to walk for exercise.

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

We have a "lite" exercise class each week.

And a little "Dancing" helps also

Just some Likes

I noticed I needed to add this to my profile:

I have no allergies.

I am really very easy to please & love Surprises!

Some of my FAVORITES:

Books ( any as long as the print isn't real small)

Embroidery Thread

Cross Stitch patterns

Color: Any color


Vintage Ephemera

Any Holiday cut-outs/items

Anything to use for applique

Sewing Thread ( black, tan, white, mostly)

Comment: I liked Mr. Mercedes as well, but Stephen King's books can be a bit gory/graphic for me. I tend to read at night and can have vivid nightmares if I read his books too late at night. He's one of my mom's favorite authors as well as Dean Koontz.
Response: I understand because I read at night also.....Thank you for the heart & rating.....

marinda rated for WIYM: Scattegories #11 USA on Feb 13, 2024
Comment: Thank you for your note! I enjoyed getting to know you a little bit. For next time,,,, Scattegories is a game that you have to think of a word for each category that begins with a certain letter of the alphabet. This swap was supposed to be the letter G. I enjoyed your answers, but none of your answers started with G. Also, it was supposed to be sent in a notecard, and yours was on paper. I appreciated what you sent to me. But make sure next time you read carefully what the swap requires.
Response: Thanks

Happy Holidays Jean! I opened your present this morning from the TF January '22 Stocking Stuffer. I have always wanted a pair of fingerless gloves but never found any. The pair you sent is perfect for my work. The building is set at 64 and typing when my hands are cold is almost impossible, so they will be extremely helpful. The mickey mouse socks are so cute. Thank you so much for making my holidays so special. Hope to see you in future swaps. Merry Christmas, Michelle
