About Me

I am a mother of two boys ages 24 and 22 and wife to one husband, age undisclosed. We have been married since 1987. He is a really good husband and father. My boys are nice and productive young men. I have been a dental hygienist since 1998 and for the most part like my job. I try to recycle and reuse when I can. I admire resourcefulness, consider myself a positive person and appreciate kindness in thought word and deed.. Please let me know if you don't receive my swap. I won't sign up unless I'm certain I can send it. I rate promptly and would be grateful if you do the same. Thanks.

Favorite Movies

I have an interesting relationship with movies: I tend to get caught up in the costumes and the hairstyles and the scenery and more than once I have lost the story. I guess you could say I couldn't see the forest for the trees!! Anyway, movies I've enjoyed: The Shawshank Redemption, Legally Blonde (Reese Witherspoon is adorable in this), Twelve Angry Men , Slumdog Millionaire and The Pianist. One movie I could never follow despite several attempts is Hunt for Red October. Really! What is going on here?

Favorite Television

I can always watch Law and Order and Seinfeld. Also, enjoy Vikings, Downton Abbey, Hell on Wheels, Ray Donovan.Binge watched Breaking Bad and Orange is the New Black.

Favorite Crafts

Crafts I favor are ones that can be completed fairly quickly. I much admire people who make quilts and knit afghans and the like. I just don't seem to have the patience for that. I sew a little and recently got some wool sweaters from the thrift store, felted them and made winter headbands out of them.It was a fun project. Fast and inexpensive. I have been making ATC's for a couple of years now and never get tired of them. I am always amazed by what people come up with.

Favorite Books

Reading is something I have always enjoyed. It is difficult to pick favorites - there are so many good ones. However, some that stick out are; Sacajewa, The Last Days of Summer, The Red Tent, Memoirs of a Geisha , Angela's Ashes and The Secret Life of Bees. Broadly speaking, I like historical fiction and humor. I dislike Nicholas Sparks. sci-fi, romance, mystery and horror.Not a huge fan of short stories. I have enjoyed books that reveal things about other countries and cultures.


As I begin swapping, I look forward to seeing what other people are interested in and the approach they take. I am always on the look out for interesting paper, 'flatish' embellishments, nice ribbon- anything that could be used for making things like gift tags, note cards, ATC cards, book marks -- paper stuff. I'm really open to pretty much anything. I like the trust, good nature and purity of swapping and am excited to be a part of it! :)

Comment: Oh Sue! This ATC is simply amazing...the rounded and decoratively punched corners, the gorgeous bit of lace trim at the bottom, and all the sweet embellishments take it to such a wonderful level. And I have to agree: it IS nice to be a girl! Thank you for making such a gorgeous example of red, white, and blue art.

donetta rated for AACG: Blue and Gray on Jun 25, 2019
Comment: How I love this ATC! I've always thought the Weimaraner breed is the most elegant of breeds, with their silvery hair and gorgeous blue eyes. Your ATC is not only elegant, but beautifully created with great images and embellishments. A stunner, my dear friend!
Response: These dogs are so beautiful, but the tongue sticking out was irresistible!. Thank you for rating and for the heart, See you around the mailbox! Sue

Comment: Oh Sue, I owe you such an apology. In my mind (which is apparently unreliable) I had rated you for this swap AGES ago. I'm so happy I thought to double-check as I was putting ATCs into my binder. Your creativity astonishes me...this is the cutest idea, using the Crayola box with 8 crayons! I was transported back to 3rd grade...so stinkin' adorable! I just love having you as a swap partner, and knowing that you're a fellow Michigander also makes me happy!
Response: No worries. I am glad the ATC arrived and that you were happy with it . If I had it to do over again, I think I would have done the background differently. Thank you for your thoughtfully worded and kind rating. Always love to be partnered with you. Sue

Comment: Love love love! This card!! What a super idea the little stacking dolls ... I have a couple of sets a friend brought from Russia... I want to thank you for this and this swap idea... I’ve enjoyed it... what’s next??
Response: I am so happy you liked the card. I love those little nesting dolls, although I have never had a set. They are just so sweet. Thank you for your support of the series. I have been thinking about hosting an alphabet series with ATC's and a companion one with BTC's. Hope to see you again at the mailbox. Sue

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful retro-card, I love the way you´ve put it together :)! I´m also thrilled to receive those Graphic45-papers, they´re beautiful and so hard to get here. Estate sales are not very common here, but I sure would love to visit one. We do have kind of open air flea-markets where people sell their own stuff and I love to visit those. Thanks for making my day with this lovely sending!
Response: You are so welcome! I am happy that you liked what I sent. Thank you for rating promptly and for the heart and for your continued support of the series. Sue

Response: Nancy, So happy you are pleased. Thank you for rating promptly and for the heart.

hibiscus rated for Fill a Page Number Series Five on May 14, 2019
Comment: Love this series and I love how you made this really fun card!! Perfect atc and really perfect for me! The familiar parts and pieces of Yahtzee were so cool and that green background couldn’t have been better! Then you add the nicest extras I can’t wait to use! Thanks again
Response: Thank you for your nice comments, Kathryn, I admit, I liked the background, too. So glad you liked what I sent you.Thank you for rating. Sue

Comment: What a darling ATC -- love those antique baby cards -- really adorable. I will use that on a scrapbook page this August when I do a little casino time on the cruise for my 50th bday! Woo-hoo! We loved driving Michigan a few years ago -- what a lovely state! Thanks again!
Response: Johny, so glad you liked the ATC. Those little cards are irresistible, aren't they? Have fun on your cruise, and come back to Michigan, anytime! Sue
Arabella rated for Fill a Page Number Series Three on May 6, 2019

donetta rated for AACG: Rust and Gray ATC on Apr 19, 2019
Comment: Ah, Sue...how I love this gorgeous rust and gray ATC! Believe it or not, my children had those balls when they were little...I think they had Mickey Mouse faces, and the hopping was such fun for them (and it tired them out eventually, which was a bonus for me)! I agree that rust and gray are a sophisticated combo, and now I have to come up with another color combination that is appealing! Thank you for the beautiful cards...I have such admiration for people who take their art to the next level.
Response: Bouncy balls, pogo sticks, hula hoops...childhood was so fun and healthy. Thank you for the prompt rating and the friendly words. They mean a lot to me. I am happy you liked the card. Sue
donetta rated for Fill a Page Number Series One on Apr 11, 2019
Comment: I've always thought that my best work comes from a cluttered and "disorganized" work surface! I find so many things that I may not have looked for in an organized stash...I am so happy to know I'm not alone in this! Sue, your "one" ATC is exceptional, and I'm jealous of the actual number one you used...I've never seen anything quite like it. Thank you for your wonderful work with our groups, and for hosting such interesting and thought-provoking swaps.
Response: You are right about the magic of a mess. I think that little number is from "Recollections".I have had them for a while and no longer have the packaging. If I see them I will pick some up for us. I don't even know if I have any more. Thank you, as always, for you kind words and for rating promptly. I am happy you liked the swap and it was my pleasure to send it to you. xoxo Sue
mandymo rated for AACG: Olive and Rose ATC on Apr 8, 2019
Comment: Oh my goodness! The atc you created for me is incredible. I just love all of the layers and the colors. You did a beautiful job. Also thank you for the letter. It was so interesting to read about how damaged goods can be given a new purpose, both the graffiti and the women. It is a wonderful story. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap!
Response: You're welcome, Mandy. I am very happy that you liked what I sent. Thank you for the prompt rating and the kind words. Sue
Pikkis rated for VC: Buttons and Lace ATC on Apr 3, 2019
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful and neatly made ATC :)! And I think you really have read my profile with care as that card makes me think of my job ;)! That pink button is so cute and I´m impressed you decided to waste it on me. And those pretty Graphic45-papers and the pretty note make everything so special, so thank you once again for everything, you made my day!
Response: Wow! That got there quickly. Thank you for the prompt rating and the lovely comments. I would much rather that button be used and enjoyed than sitting in the corner of a drawer . I am happy you liked what I sent you. : ) Sue

Response: Kathryn, Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, and for going the extra mile by posting on my comments. I am very pleased you liked what I sent- I get as much joy from that as I do from receiving a swap. Thanks , also, for your support of the series. Your enthusiasm has convinced me to post another fill a page series. I think I will do numbers next.
