About Me

I am having some health problems and will be absent from here for awhile. I will check in occasionally. I look forward to beginning swapping again!

I moved from Virginia to New Mexico in 2010, and I am living with my daughter,son-in-law, two granddaughters (15 and 12), two house cats and one dog. The kids let me bring my sweet kitty Sally (although she has feline AIDS, so lives in my room), but she is very happy here. I am really enjoying learning about New Mexico and its history, terrain, plants and birds. I enjoy "magic", like blowing bubbles, flowers, nature, crystals, unicorns, dragonflies, cats, friends, learning about and trying new things.

I always send, usually before the deadline. If you don't receive my swap, please let me know. I will be happy to resend. Also, if I do not use enough postage, please let me know and I will reimburse you.

Favorite Music

Lots of different kinds -- show music, rock and roll, music from the 60s and 70s, a little country(Willie Nelson, Emmy Lou Harris, Nancy Griffith), blues, jazz, blue grass and am open to just about anything.

Favorite Movies

The Sting. The Last Waltz. Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino, Katherine Hepburn, Jane Fonda, Audrey Hepburn, Anne Bancroft, Nicole Kidman, and lots of others! I don't like horror or violent movies.

Favorite Television

Dancing With the Stars. White Collar. The Mentalist. Star Trek: Next Generation. All of the Law and Orders. Biographies. Shows on reorganizing, crafts and decorating. Cooking Shows. Lots of the PBS shows.

Favorite Crafts

Tatting. Embroidery. Sewing. Notecard making. I am just starting doing some jewelry making. We will see how it goes.

Favorite Books

I love reading! I enjoy mysteries, biographies, self-help, feminist, science fiction, some popular novels, recipes, crafting, organization manuals, short stories, etc.! My favorite author is Anais Nin. I first read her in 1973, and have reread her periodically ever since. She has been an important part of my life. I do not enjoy horror or scary suspense, romances, or violent books.

coolbaker5 rated for Spring has Sprung! Card Swap on Apr 2, 2014
Comment: Beautiful cards - thank you. One note: While it is a great idea to recycle envelopes. I received it torn. It would have been a horrible loss to me if the cards did not arrive. The torn envelope came in a US Post Office envelope apologizing for the damage.
Response: Thank you so much for letting me know. I will be more careful. I am so glad you liked the cards.

Mary, I'm THRILLED that you like the envelope-maker!! I was worried that maybe you already had one, but I'm sure happy you didn't :) And I sympathize with you over the root canal--I've had dental issues my whole life. Hope you're feeling better soon!! Merry Christmas, and a safe and wonderful New Year!
