About Me

I'm a mom who likes to read, quilt, craft, and take photographs of my travels, my family, and random animals. I am still in contact with my pen pal from 8th grade, 30 years later. I enjoy writing letters and receiving them as well. My husband was in the Army for the first nine years of our marriage. We have lived in Washington State, Texas, and Massachusetts and have travelled through all the states in between. I've travelled to Germany and France and have a trip planned to Greece in April 2022. I love learning about different cultures and regional history and food. Please tell me what's special about where you live, where you go for fun, and whether or not I should come visit. I love having friends in far-flung places.

Favorite Books

I really enjoy non-fiction books about psychology, sociology, and business. I also like memoirs and biographies. I've read every Malcolm Gladwell book and I like his style of writing. As for fiction novels, I like compelling or likeable characters. I started to read Gone Girl and never finished because I didn't like any of the characters and I didn't care what happened to them. I love stories of redemption and strong character development. I tend to prefer non-fiction but I do enjoy historical fiction if it is well written. I don't like Christian romance or Chic-lit at all.

Here are some of my favorites: To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller, The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, Counterfeit Gods by Tim Keller, Accidental Saints by Nadia Bolz-Weber, The Great Divorce by CS Lewis

Favorite Movies

The Notebook, The Blind Side, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Princess Bride, Hoodwinked, Surf’s Up

Favorite Crafts

Quilting, sewing, painting, drawing, card making, stamping, and collage.

Favorite Things

Going for hikes in the woods, planting flowers and watching them grow, making scrapbooks and looking at photographs, planning vacations, visiting museums and parks, shopping in thrift stores, getting pedicures and massages, singing along to the radio, playing party games with my kids and their friends.

My favorite color is coral. My favorite scent is lilac. I enjoy candles, lotion, and all those generic gift items at Marshalls. I often make gift baskets for work and I like putting things together that will make someone smile.

Likes and Dislikes

Food: I like peanut butter cups, coconut anything, and caramel popcorn. While I am not happy about it, I need to watch my carbs so I am always happy to receive low-carb recipes that have been tested and found to be delicious. I do not like dark chocolate, coffee, or black licorice.

Fabric: I love quilt-store quality cotton fabric, but not the stuff from Joanns or Walmart. Fabric that is stiff, rough, thin, or loose weave is not worth the time I put into my projects. My quilts are mostly bright and modern. I don’t use earth or royal tones often but I do like blues, greens, corals, and neutrals.

Paper Crafting: I like printed papers, cardstock, ink, stamps, stickers, watercolor, color pencil drawings, calligraphy, stamps, ribbon, washi tape, markers, thread, fabric, patterns, rulers, books, magazines, and good advice. I do not like Halloween, horror, gothic, or dark themes. Please, no tiny reward stickers or cartoon characters, nothing that is made specifically for children.

Books: Only send me a book if you have read it and liked it. I used to work in a bookstore and found that even if a book was a best seller, it didn't mean it was good. They just had a good publicist. Personal recommendations are always best.

Comment: Thank you for all the papers - I think sewing swaps can cost a lot of postage and people shy away from them. Try US only - Happy swapping!
