About Me

August 8: I have just sent my computer off to be repaired, so I will be without it for a while. In the meantime, I am using my husband's notebook, which has Windows 8 (hate it) and is also really slow. Therefore I will be off and on sporadically. It may take me more time to rate - sorry - but I will still get my swaps out on time if at all possible. Thanks for understanding.

May 5, 2014 WOW! I just got my 500th heart! Thank you all for your generous ratings!

I am 71; I have two sons and four grandchildren I have been happily married for 47 years. We live in an apartment, so not a lot of room for craft stuff, but I make do. I love doing crafts with the grandkids. I love all kinds of puzzles and games except word search. . I have been crafting since I was in high school, but only seriously for about 20 years. My favorite project that I have done is a printer's job case filled with memorabilia and decorated with scrapbooking materials. My favorite tool is my ribbon iron

One other thing, I love the Dodgers.

I make every effort to get swaps out on time. If I will be late I will always let you know. I don't always have a car to get to the post office, but I have lots of stamps and I usually try to err on the side of over-stamping if I have to mail it from home. If there is ever postage due, please let me know and I will make it up to you.

Favorite Music

Frank Sinatra

Harry Connick, Jr.

Diana Krall

Bobby Darin

Tony Bennett

some jazz, but not fusion or really modern

Basically, the classics

Would be happy to receive

washi tape

vintage papers and embellishments, esp. seven gypsies and graphic 45

acrylic stamps

gel pens, Sakura pens

metal charms

chocolate (semi-sweet to bittersweet)

Tim Holtz anything

lace or lace ribbons

alcohol inks

Classic Winnie the Pooh

paper flowers

fifties memorabilia

hot chocolate

DO NOT like coffee or tea, except herbal tea No floral scents, please, and no dryer sheets in packages..


I am a pretty generous rater. If I feel you have made a real effort to make something special or you have sent me a few goodies on my like list I will give you a heart. I also like to get notes with swaps. If I get a note that tells me something about you or what you have made you will get a heart. Lateness does not bother me at all; things happen. Just let me know.

sybil31562 rated for ATCs with Color # 7 White on May 4, 2016
Comment: When we create in blue, for instance, we use shades that are a bit green and shades that are a bit purple. Keeping that in mind, there is a whole world of off whites that can be explored!
Response: Thank you for the rating. The card I received was embossed which gave it a nice white on white feel. Oh well, on to black!

SamiE rated for ATC - Free Themed #96 (USA) on Apr 25, 2016
Comment: Thanks for raiding your stash pile for this ATC.. My stash pile is nothing but Halloween and Christmas. Need to make more.... I'm from Corona, CA.. I don't miss the smog, traffic, and rude people. Here in Alabama, we have funny weather. In the low 80's today, tomorrow it could cloud up and rain. I suffer with bad sinus trouble. Mold and chemicals. Bad for me.... I hope you get some rain soon.....
Response: Thanks for the rating and the comments. We actually did get some rain yesterday - an actual thunder storm!

I was straightening up my craft room, putting all my goodies I've received in the past couple of months in my binder; and I came across your ATC & note again (Butterfly, Button, & Bookpage). I really appreciate your kind words about nurses. While I love my job (what I do, the people I meet whose lives I touch, and who in turn touch my life), it can be very hard and heartbreaking at times (especially in critical care). Hearing those kind words from time to time helps mend the heartbreak and helps soften the difficult times. So, from the bottom of my heart, I appreciate you and the kindness of your note. It's been a tough month, finding that note was meant to be. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for thinking to write those words!!!
