About Me

I was a civil servant for 30 years before retiring as a Data Analyst from Department of Defense. I volunteer at our local library pulling books for inter library loans. I also do volunteer work at my church with an emphasis on education and outreach. I work at our local food bank and resource center. I often do volunteer baking for fundraisers for these different groups.

I love quilting, knitting, reading, baking, and painting with watercolors and acrylics.

Favorite Music

I grew up in the 80's, so 80's music rules! I love New Wave, particularly The Split Enz and Crowded House.

Favorite Books

I usually prefer non-fiction. The only books I've read lately are about painting with watercolors and acrylics.

Favorite Television

I don't watch much tv. It's usually "second hand". When I do, it's usually TLC, the History Channel, National Geographic, and the like.

Quilting

I've been quilting on and off for over 20 years. I have a number of machines and LOTS and LOTS of fabric. I could live on a deserted island (with electricity) the rest of my life and not use all that I have.

Pens and Paper

I do everything 0 or 100%. No in between. The same goes for my love of paper and pens. While I have managed to part with a great deal of my paper, I still have a wonderful collection of pens. I'm always on the look out for the perfect pen. Even when I find one that I am very happy with, I can't help but think there is still one better. Hence my continued quest.

Extras and Ratings

I'm not a big fan of extras. They are not required, so please don't feel obligated to send any.

I do give hearts 💕 for the swap being of exceptional quality/work, not the extras.

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful card!! Did you take the photo yourself? I love it! I am so impressed with your busy weekend, you must have a big yard! I am also very impressed that you don't keep bread in the house! I hope you have many more restful Sundays - those sound like my dream day! :D thanks again!

Comment: Thank you for re-sending, Liz. It’s commendable that you are doing the honest work to repair your rating. I wish I could ❤️ a three rating. The shamrock ☘️ ATC is a fond reminder of my late Grandma Cook 🍀 and times together in her garden! Still, I understand that swapbot rules will not allow for a higher rating due to the significant tardiness and lack of adequate communication. This swap was due 11/4/19. I messaged you that nothing had arrived on 11/25/19. You replied back that you would “rectify” on 11/30/19. I asked on 12/5/19 if “rectify” meant that you’re resending. No reply. I messaged you again on 12/16/19. Still no reply. The AMA group coordinator sent an angel swap and instructed me to rate the one on 1/5/20 because you had not responded to either of us. It was 7/25/21 when you finally messaged me that you’d like to resend. I replied that I’d prefer ATCs over PCs on 7/27/21. You asked for specifics about the theme of the collage on 8/5/21, to which I responded the same day giving you liberty to choose a theme for me. The cards came today (9/10/21). It struck me as odd that your return address is in the same state as I am, and both cards that you sent say they’re “made 2019”. It’s none of my business why these took so long, I only wish you’d communicated better. That way I might’ve been able to rate you a five because we made arrangements.
Response: Thx for the new rating.

Comment: Liz! You can breathe a sigh of relief; it finally arrived! Thanks for the fantastic card; I love the photograph on the front; you're very talented. It sounds like you had a very eventful weekend, and I hope given how much time it's been since that you're not aching anymore. Have a wonderful day! ☆Raynor
Response: So glad it arrived! I would enjoy a continued correspondence, either by mail or electronic, as you sound like you could be a creative BFF!

Comment: Thank you very much for the lovely images. I particularly like the Japanese scene. I love the sun but can't stay in it (ginger) but not the heat and humidity.

Comment: Never received. Contacted and received a response on Dec. 12 that it will be resent. Still have not received anything. Will change rating if and when I receive an ATC. I hate leaving a 1 rating.

Comment: Thank you for the great tree pictures. I saw some of these trees with the moss when we toured Savannah GA a few years ago. I also thought they were beautiful.
