Favorite Music

I like listening to Kenny Chesney, Blake Sheldon, Lady Antebellum, Sugarland, country and beach music. Like rock and roll oldies also.

Favorite Books

.I like romance books--Danielle Steele, Sandra Brown, and Nora Roberts. Read "The Secret Life of Bees". Wonderful book and then the same day I finished it I watched the movie with my daughter. Oh-incredible!!!!!! Read the book, "The Help" then saw the movie with my best friend. Great movie. I now have a Kindle (thanks to my daughter). I read all the time. Love the free books on Book Bub.

Favorite Movies

Dirty Dancing, Remember the Titans, Pretty Woman! The Help. Grease. Goonies~such a great movie.

Favorite Television

Reality shows are great--Dancing with the Stars, Survivor , Amazing Race. I love the show Cake Boss . Enjoy watching Big Bang Theory and Mike and Molly.

Favorite Crafts

Since joining Swap-Bot I have gotten hooked on making envelopes. It's easy and so much fun to make them. I use calendars, magazines, maps, scrapbooking paper- wonderful patterns etc.


Live in the Shenadoah Valley in VA. I'm a First Grade teacher's aide . I've been at the same school for 30 years.
I've been married for 44 years. WOW!! I like sitting on our porch especially when it's raining.

I'm a cancer survivor.

I have a daughter and son~~3 grandchildren. Adore my grandkids. Love making cookies when they visit.

About Me

I collect thimbles (358 so far), recipe cards. I like any kind of stationery--pens (love gel and TUL pens) mechanical pencils especially the mini ones ( like using these plus they fit in my pocket), notepads, notecards, etc. I like to do Word Search . I love to exercise every day either at the gym, brisk walk, biking, flower gardening.

I like anything with hummingbirds on it. I like frog and turtle ceramics, stickers, anything with them on it. I like snowmen. If it's going to snow I want a couple feet of snow. Hot chocolate - so good. I'm outdoorsy!!! :)

I have a few pen pals and we "swap" recipes, seeds, etc. They don't belong to Swap-bot.

I love Pinterest. Great for crafts, recipes, everything. I have done quite a few things on there. I wish I had the time to do lots more.

About Me

I like the colors teal, lime, pinks, lilac (soft colors)

Love the beach, water, and sun. Went to Hawaii and would love to go back again.

Cookies are my weakness. Black licorice too.

Like jewelry~~prefer silver. Like some sparkle.

About Me


~ beach theme recipe cards - I would love a pack of these. Private swap would be great.

~ your favorite recipes, recipe cards

~ Suzy's Zoo stationery, stickers, etc. (anything of Suzy Zoo).

~ Any kind of notecards or stationery

~ Small garden flags 12 x 18

Since joining Swap-bot I've started collecting POSTCARDS from every state. I am just so amazed at how many postcards I have. Thanks to a lot of Swap-bot friends, I have all the map state postcards. But could always use more.

I am collecting state birds, flags, and flowers also. I like postcards with lighthouses, seashells, and hummingbirds on them. Map postcards of other countries would be great too. Any postcards would be super.

I don't drink coffee or hot tea. Like chocolate no dark.


I like to send out my swaps as soon as possible.. So if you do not receive your swap from me, please contact me. Thanks!!
