About Me

l am married, have 3 stepchildren, 8 grandchildren, lots of cats. A housewife with way too many crafts lol. I love family, card parties, chinese auctions, and yard sales, thrift stores, never know what you will find.

MUSIC I like all kinds of music mostly, don't listen to it a lot, favorite is country

READING. Books books Books, i love All books, i go first for the mysteries, then funny ones, then what ever else is available. I love reading. I buy tons of books every summer at garage sales, so i am stocked up when the cold weather gets here. Some favorite authors are Lee Child, Tess Gerritsen, Jeffrey Deaver,Harlan Coben,Beverly Barton, Janet Evanovich and a ton more. Just discovered Gregg Horowitz and Mark Nykanen, will be looking for more from them.

MOVIES/TV hmmmmm funny ones, action adventure ones, and of course mystery. Old Fav is Madame X, a tearjerker. Tv shows i like are quite a variety,I love love love Chicago PD and Fire, loved Revenge, Project Runway, Falling Skies, Sons of Anarchy, ,the Walking Dead, most comedies, Amazing Race, .FBI and a few more.Most of those are off the air now, I do like NCIS.

CRAFTS Where to begin.. LOL Love Quilting, making quilts, runners, totes, purses, small things, ALTHOUGH I do very little of it since I found paper crafting. , Rubber stamping, but not into scrapbooking. I like making ATC, homemade Postcards and tags. I use to do Stained glass and still have all the stuff, maybe someday i will go back to it.

A few years ago, I made hats on a loom , made 35 for a mans shelter, also made them a tote bag, adding socks, pen, paper, hand sanitzer, kleenex, comb. Time to think about that again..

i am always interested in trying a new craft, a show me kind of person tho.

OTHER THINGS I LIKE/COLLECT Barbie pics or just word Barbie from doll items Buttons..smaller the better, love shaped ones

Mail... i love mail

i collect teapots, images, stickers, , glass paperweights,

Hi Nancy! Thanks so very much for the Swaps in the U.S.A. January WTA! I loved the stickers as well as the Disneyland postcard (which my son swiped from me). Also thanks so much for tea bag, unfortunately I can't drink green tea, it doesn't agree with me. I will of course pass it on. No worries.
