About Me

EDITED 09/30/3023: I like to read, make junk journals, altered books, ephemera from cut-outs from magazines, cards, scraps of paper, ribbon, buttons and other bits and pieces I find.

I LOVE YouTube!!! I follow many crafters and various channels. I like documentaries, history, wild animal cams, some music channels and many other channels that catch my eye.

READING. I got hooked on reading when I was in the 1st grade. It was a highlight of my days in the summer when the bookmobile would come. I started out reading mysteries and love them to this day. I have many many favorite authors. To name just a few; Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Robert B. Parker (RIP). Jonathan Kellerman, John Sanford, and more which I will add later. The list keeps growing as I discover new authors. I welcome any recommendations and would really like to hear about the books and authors you like. I don't read as much as I used to as now I spend a lot of my time on Swap Bot.

I love animals, especially cats; big cats and domesticated cats. I also am fond of dogs, birds, elephants, and cows. Actually I love almost all animals. I love their eyes.

I collect USA postage stamps for the most part, but now also collect stamps worldwide thanks to Swap Bot. I got my first stamp album when I was around 8 or 9 years old. I still have it to this day. So, I've had it over 60 years. Stamps are tiny works of art.

My favorite color is green. As a young girl my favorite color was Cobalt Blue, so it comes in pretty close to Green! Actually, I love color. I think about all the other colors that are truly beautiful.

I want to be the best that I can be. I want to never stop learning and striving to be better. I make mistakes but I try to learn by those mistakes and move on.

I am a Christian and the Lord Jesus Christ is my Saviour.

Comment: Thank you so very much for your beautiful letter and all the wonderful playing cards with extras ❤️❤️ That was so sweet of you. Sorry for late rating. Keep shining your beautiful light ❤️❤️
Comment: Thanks for your Bible writing. So cute with all the colorful stickers. Thank you for the Scripture verse cards, too! I too love "I AM" and agree that it's fun to look into it deeper! God is outside of time and space. You can google the seven "I AM" statements of Jesus in John. My favorite one is when he was arrested and they said they were looking for Jesus of Nazareth and he said, "I am he" and they all fell to the ground (John 18:3-6). Cool moment!

Comment: Thank you for such a thoughtful and lovely swap. It sounds like we have a lot in common. I never see anything like that book in my Dollar Tree. It is kind of a rainy day here so going to enjoy looking through it. Thank you again.
Response: I hope you like it. I had search pretty deep within the children's book section. I sometimes think the DT here doesn't compare. Indiana has som really big and nice stores.

Thank you so much (June GIFT wish) for the vintage playing cards..all new to me! That mouse is super cute. Fun fact about my user name: I thought the book in the bible Zephaniah was pretty sounding so I changed up the spelling and voila!
