About Me

Happy to be back swapping! The summer break was good for me as I was able to clean out and re-organize my craft room.

I am retired and live in the desert in Arizona. I am loving life and the feel of living in a quiet cowboy/horse town. I am married and we live with our two Ragdoll cats, Rusty and Casey. We have an adult son and he, his wife, and our grandson live in Europe. I LOVE being a grandma!

I love all types of DIY projects and want to try and learn it all! I love to go to flea markets and antique stores - the fun is in the hunt for that perfect piece to add to my collections! I have even gotten my husband interested.

I enjoy playing MahJongg and play once a week with a group at our local community center. I also play in local MahJongg tournaments and those keep me on my toes!

Favorite Crafts

I love Paper Crafts - card making, journaling, book making, ATC's

I love mixed media art and assemblage. I make "memory jugs" using a lot of my favorite collections. I currently am making an angel jug where the base is a 5-gallon stone crock, encrusted with angels, and I have a mannequin bust I am encrusting with religious medals and will hang my collection of rosaries on.

I enjoy quilting and am currently working on 2 baby quilts; Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Favorite Books

I read every John Grisham novel. I enjoy a good story that engages a reader from the first chapter. Absolutely loved The Hunger Games series - Katniss Everdeen lives in my heart forever. I have not read the Harry Potter books, nor have I seen the movies - while I have some interest, I think the "hype" keeps me away. Possibly my expectations are too high?

Favorite Movies

I don't watch a lot of movies, but my top favories include Dirty Dancing, Shawshank Redemption, Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music, It's A Wonderful Life, and how could I forget The Godfather Trilogy (but #2 is my favorite)

Favorite Television

Lately we watch a lot of shows on Netflix. My husband loves the limited series. If anything goes past a 3rd season, he loses interest and then I have to watch the rest on my own, which is fine. I spend more time watching You Tube Videos and like watching tutorials to learn a new craft or technique.

Favorite Music

I like a variety of music, including oldies, rock n roll, current pop artists, country, and will occasionaly tune into classical and broadway showtunes.

Comment: Thank you for the Mary Engelbreit Xmas card. You must have read my profile, because I love her things! They're always so cheery! Thanks again and Merr Christmas. BTW, what is Love Collections?
Response: So happy you liked the Christmas Card I sent to you. LoveCollections comes from my love of collecting stuff and things - it all started as a kid with BUTTONS! and I just adore "small things". I even have scissors, old silverware, vintage sewing supplies, and I adore angels. I even have a collection of the "hear, see and speak no evil" statues. Have a Merry Christmas!
