About Me

My name is Mindy. I've lived in New Hampshire all of my life. I've been with my boyfriend, Packy, for 17 years. I have 4 fabulous daughters. My oldest is Kaila 34, Marissa 29, Shania 24 and Ciera 23. I also became a Grammy in 2021. Her name is Piper and I ADORE her. I love it when we can all get together which isn't as often as it used to be. I really enjoy doing lots of different crafts. I'm always looking for something new to create. However, my favs will always be paper crafts and crocheting. I am a Service Coordinator/Supervisor. I set up elderly with services that will help keep them in their homes as long as possible and supervise over 20 Direct Support Providers I love my job.


*I LOVE DIE CUTS!!!! I like to use them on ATC’s, envelopes, etc. Feel free to send me some!

*gingerbread men💕

*Swapping Happy Mail

*hummingbirds (all birds)

*Dunkin Donuts coffee. I should just have an IV put directly into my vein considering how much I drink!

*Christmas anything. I totally have OCD=Obsessive Christmas Disorder!

*Halloween swaps

*Anything PINK, iridescent or sparkley. How can one not smile when they see something pink and sparkly?

*Flea market finds. I have a huge Christmas Village display and I got most of the pieces at flea markets.

*Plastic canvas. I bought a huge bin full of plastic canvas sheets and books at a flea market about 7 years ago and I've been hooked ever since. I like to do it when I watch tv cuz it keeps my hands busy. I especially like to make PC Christmas ornaments!

*Crochet. My Grandmother taught me when I was 8 years old. I especially like to make afghans, pillows and Christmas stockings.

*Sewing. I enjoy sewing block quilts. I’ve made lots of memory quilts from clothing.

*I LOVE decorating for Christmas. That's why I start in November and keep it up til January. I decorate for all of the holidays.


*Podcasts. Crime Junkie and Female Criminals are my favorite.

Favorite Television

I like to binge watch series on NETFLIX and HULU

Favorite Books

*Amish books. I find it interesting how they live and their sense of community.

*Mythical books. Great when I want to escape the real world.

*Chicken soup for the soul books. I have 6 Christmas versions I like to reread.

Obviously, I read a variety of different books.

I'm the kind of person that can picture the story in my mind while I'm reading it as if I'm watching it on a movie screen. Sometimes I'm so involved in the book that when I take a break, it takes me a few minutes to adjust to reality, lol.

I have to take breaks from reading sometimes because it can suck up so much of my life!

I also enjoy listening to audio books in my car because sometimes I travel far for my job.

Favorite Movies

*A Christmas Story

*Jim Carrey version of The Grinch

*All the Hallmark Christmas movies

*Harry Potter movies, I'm such a dork

*Anything with Robert DeNiro

*documentaries (especially true crime)


*Sheets ripped off of memo pads or post it notes. I literally toss them right in the trash.

*smoking. I hate it when the scent gets into my clothes. Yuck!

*rude people. You get a lot more when you’re kind towards others.

*onions. I wish I liked them because so many people use them when they cook. I gag when I eat them.

*Mushrooms. I gag when I eat these too.

*extremely late raters. I can't stand it when 2 weeks go by after I send something and they still haven't rated me. It leaves me wondering if they ever got it or if it got lost. Or even worse, when months go by and then I suddenly get a message stating they never received my swap.

*no more stickers! Especially the tiny ones. Unless they are Christmas or Halloween stickers.

*I don't care for religious Christmas cards

Comment: Your card is adorable! And, the tag you made is fabulous. I recycle my Christmas cards too. I agree, it’s nice that they can get loved twice. Thank you for an excellent swap.
Comment: Mindy! What a beautiful Christmas card full of wonderful Christmas goodies! The gingerbread girl with the sentiment "Making Spirits Bright" is darling! I have been on a gingerbread kick this year! I hope that the ATC that I sent to you for another swap makes it to you soon! It is gingerbread themed. Merry Christmas! Thanks again!

Comment: Thank you so much! Your trees sound cute! The ornament you sent is already on our tree. Not much else on there yet. We decided to wait a few days before decorating it to see what the cats were going to do. I think we might be safe to put ornaments on it. Have a Merry Christmas! Hugs, Diane

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Christmas card and atc. They are so nice and cheerful. Yes about Freddie Highmore, we watch the good doctor, it is hard to believe he has a British accent and you can't tell on the shows.

explore rated for USA: Holiday Card + ATC on Dec 3, 2022
Comment: I rushed to rate you for the Gingerbread man ATC swap when I saw a Gingerbread man on an ATC, but fortunately I looked at the back of the ATC to check and realized it was for this swap. Then I discovered that I already left a wrong rating for you for a gnome ATC which was created by another swapper. Oh my 😂. I fixed both ratings now. Thank you for the chubby Gingerbread man ATC - it is cute! The dollar-bill Christmas card is so fun too. Happy holidays!!
Response: Lol, I’ve mixed swaps up before too! Glad it’s not just me😃🤣😆
