About Me

Just to let everyone know, my lap top has been in & out of the repair shop for the last two weeks & I still don't have it back. I know I owe some of you ratings & I will not forget about them; just consistently need my lap top so I can get them done. Please be patient as I will get to them. This is stressing me out terribly not having my lap top!! We have also gotten a new mail carrier & have been having nothing but issues with receiving & sending mail (yeah on top of how slow the mail is already!!) If you have not received something from me please let me know so I can look into it. Then I find out my sister has cancer. October has not been very kind to me. Can't wait until it is over......

.I tend to like music from the 70's & 80's artists like: Elton John, Cyndi Lauper, Tina Turner, Journey, Rod Stewart, Pet shop Boys, etc. You know, music that is considered to be oldies now!! Ha Ha Ha

Favorite Television

Don't really tend to watch much tv. I love a lot of shows off of Sy-Fy. Dexter, Vikings, Walking Dead, Masked Singer, Curse Of Oak Island, Forged In Fire, etc.

Favorite Crafts

Most of the crafting I do is with rubber stamps, clip art, recycled items. Mostly making ATCs & cards but want to learn how to journal & make flip books, too. Just not enough hours in the day!!

II like making mini pocket letters, ATCs, cards, scrapbook pages, chunky pages, etc. I like going to thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales to find goodies to craft with or recycle.

Comment: Yowza Batgirl! So much loveliness tucked inside the outer envelope! You know I adore all those snowman stickers and of course the hidden #14 was appreciated. The inside envelope with the rubber stamped elves is precious and the #14 tucked into my name has me grinning. And all those fabulous handmade envelopes have me over the moon with gratitude, so this week before Thanksgiving I’m extra grateful for a swapping friend like you.
Response: You are so welcome. I am glad you liked the swap=)
