About Me

After all these years of never having Covid; now I have it & it is kicking my butt. I may be a few days late getting some swaps out. Hope to be on track soon... My sister passed away unexpectedly in September. I can not stress enough that women need to make sure they are getting their mammograms & female parts tested. It could save your life!!

.I tend to like music from the 70's & 80's artists like: Elton John, Cyndi Lauper, Tina Turner, Journey, Rod Stewart, Pet shop Boys, Queen,etc. Penatronix is a new to me group that I really like, also.

Favorite Television

Don't really tend to watch much tv. Walking Dead, Masked Singer, Curse Of Oak Island, Top Level Chef, etc.

Favorite Crafts

Most of the crafting I do is with rubber stamps, clip art, recycled items. Mostly making ATCs & cards but want to learn how to journal & make flip books, too. Just not enough hours in the day!!

I like making mini pocket letters, ATCs, hand made post cards, scrapbook pages, chunky pages, very basic journaling, etc. I like going to thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales to find goodies to craft with or recycle.

Thank you so much for the really wonderful Art Nouveau journal! It is so stunning, I am hesitant to put my chicken-scratch handwriting in it. I may use it for a place to collect all of the art friends send me this year instead. A big Mahalo!

Thank you so much for the RAK #3 (RAKS Only) win. I love the coloring journal! So many possibilities. I'm thinking maybe a swap-bot address type book. I'm not sure yet but many possibilities!
