About Me

September 2021: Looking for any kind of memorabilia/etc featuring the "Grogu the Child" from the Mandalorian

May 2021: I am diving into another adventure reading COZY MURDER MYSTERIES series books. I will be adding to my list of authors below.

March 2021: My new adventure is putting together fairy gardens. A few years ago I went to Rock City and they have a gnome village there that is all along the path around the park and I fell in love with the gnomes! Then we visited a friend of my mother's and she has created a fairy garden in her backyard and it leads through little paths in the woods and so such. So much fun!

January 2021: Happy New Year. This year I am working really hard to increase my score from past slip-ups from a few years ago so please PLEASE let me know if you feel my work is not up to your liking. I WILL MAKE IT AGAIN IF NEEDED, I PROMISE!! Please don't rate me down without messaging with me first.

Hello swappers, I am really excited to be a part of this group and have had some really wonderful times making and receiving swaps. I live in Northern Virginia not too far from Washington D.C. and love it. I have been married for a little over 25 years and we have 2 fabulous daughters. The oldest has graduated from college, and our youngest is in her 2nd year. We are an animal loving family and currently have 2 rescue cats, a calico/tabby and a "ginger" tabby.

I love making journal pages, cards, and working in journals. I am always looking for something new. I have re-discovered my love of Disney and learned that there is a lot of interesting shows on National Geographic channel.

Favorite Music

I like all kinds of music. Some of my favorites are Bret Michaels, Queen, Carrie Underwood and so many more. I really love music from Musicals/Plays (i.e., Rent, Rocky Horror Picture Show, CATS, Falsettos, Joseph and the Technical Dreamcoat, etc.), and I am an "80s lady" and love the 80s rock/hair bands!

Favorite Television

I do not watch alot of TV but I do catch up with a few programs: All the mystery shows on Hallmark Movies and Mystery Channel. Lately I have been watching MeTV in the mornings...Matlock, In The Heat of the Night, Perry Mason, Blue Bloods, etc.

Ratings

Due to the pattern (see below) I am suspecting the ratings of 1s I received in 2019 were part of the mail items that were destroyed in the mail truck fire that occurred near my home at this time. It was an angry postal worker; on the news. I reached out to all swap partners and resent but no rating changes.

My ratings of 3s received in 2018/2019 are explained in the notes of my profile. Two of them were the post office not processing on time and other two I took responsibility of being late due to college exams.

Favorite Movies

Some of my all-time fav movies are Labyrinth, Princess Bride, huge fan of Disney/Pixar movies ~ Moana, Beauty and the Beast, Lilo and Stitch, Cars in addition to all those iconic 80s movies (The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, St. Elmo's Fire, etc) Any Tim Burton movies

Also very much love Broadway plays and musicals: Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Falsettos, Company,

Monsters University Lilo and Stitch Peter Pan Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them) WInnie the Pooh (especially Tigger and Roo)

PC I would love to get:

Comment: Hi Tamara! I love your puppy pc - so cute! Miss Greta Mae (MGM) is doing pretty well - she has started clawing us to get our attention and her nails hurt! LOL! Yes, having a dog versus a cat I think would be so different - at night MGM stretches out and sleeps on my lap until I go to bed - she is 43 lbs so a lapful! LOL! She loves getting attention and cats I think are different - at least the one I have been around - he likes to bite when he is "playing" - I have grown weary of him doing that! He is my Besties cat and I was taking care of him at her place for a week - he got me three times as I am a slow learner I guess! MGM can bite as well but I know she really is playing and gets a bit crazy! LOL! All in our perspective I guess! Thanks again! Hugs and Happy Swapping ;)
Response: Thank YOU for the 5 plus heart rating! LOL! Yes, 43lbs does sound like a lapful but funful.

2019 Profile Hello #5

Good Morning Tamara,

I hope this hello message finds you doing well! I noticed while reading your profile that you like watching movies on the Hallmark movie channel. I rarely watch tv but most of the time if I do that is the channel that it is on here in my house too. I hope you have a wonderful day! Hugs!
