About Me

I was a civil servant for 30 years before retiring as a Data Analyst from Department of Defense. I volunteer at our local library pulling books for inter library loans. I also do volunteer work at my church with an emphasis on education and outreach. I work at our local food bank and resource center. I often do volunteer baking for fundraisers for these different groups.

I love quilting, knitting, reading, baking, and painting with watercolors and acrylics.

Favorite Music

I grew up in the 80's, so 80's music rules! I love New Wave, particularly The Split Enz and Crowded House.

Favorite Books

I usually prefer non-fiction. The only books I've read lately are about painting with watercolors and acrylics.

Favorite Television

I don't watch much tv. It's usually "second hand". When I do, it's usually TLC, the History Channel, National Geographic, and the like.

Quilting

I've been quilting on and off for over 20 years. I have a number of machines and LOTS and LOTS of fabric. I could live on a deserted island (with electricity) the rest of my life and not use all that I have.

Pens and Paper

I do everything 0 or 100%. No in between. The same goes for my love of paper and pens. While I have managed to part with a great deal of my paper, I still have a wonderful collection of pens. I'm always on the look out for the perfect pen. Even when I find one that I am very happy with, I can't help but think there is still one better. Hence my continued quest.

Extras and Ratings

I'm not a big fan of extras. They are not required, so please don't feel obligated to send any.

I do give hearts šŸ’• for the swap being of exceptional quality/work, not the extras.

Comment: Liz, thank you for your notecard, I've enjoyed reading it a lot! For some reason it's so comforting to read how a days of another person you've met through TGIF go by, perhaps, because we're being open to each other. And this in turn makes our hobby way more meaningful. Also, Everglades national park postcard you've included is absolutely marvelous! The greens, the nature, I love it all!

Comment: Sorry for the late rate. Apparently, it didn't save when I rated the first time. Sorry. Sounds like you had a busy weekend. I also love wax seals. I haven't tried the hot glue ones, yet.

Comment: Love the New Leaf Green that you picked out for your new library room! I'm in agreement with you, not a huge fan of green and orange together. :) Thanks too for the book review, The Doctors Blackwell looks interesting ... including what you said about looking down on nurses and other women.

Comment: Pretty good weekend... awesome that you bought so many toys for the food pantry Christmas baskets! So Brilliant! Also enjoyed looking at the Repurposed table tops... I think the cell phone cover is my favorite, or maybe the crayons, but they are all really cool! :)

Comment: yay, i can relate: 1 - absolutely! email swaps are not necessarily easier - me, too, struggling with how to get everything coordinated before clicking! 2 - de-cluttering is endless!!! i have gotten rid of a LOT of stuff since retiring 14 years ago, but things still have a tendency to disappear from where i sorta remember where & wonder if i ever will figure out what i want to do once all the excess stuff is cleared 3 - Satchel's & Repurpose Project sound like wonderfully unique places - hooray for getting all that kid's charity shopping done! > thanks for sharing your exciting weekend!

Comment: Thanks for the note and postcard. You did have a busy weekend. I need to declutter. May do some this week since Iā€™m off. Love the story of your breakfast guests. I also LOVE a sharp dressed man!
Response: As I'm decluttering, I'm trying to find people who will appreciate the things I loved. It makes it easier to give away. Glad you like Mickey Mouse!

Comment: oh wow! You had breakfast with two random strangers!! That's so awesome... I'm super shy too, and dang, you are just my hero right now! :D Thank you for sharing that with me! We also have some Camellias blooming right now, but they are the pale pink varieties... you got great pics!
Response: I felt compelled to invite them to the table. It must have been a divine appointment. I love taking pictures. I should do it more often, I'm just usually into what I'm doing and forget.

Thank you Liz for the beautiful wax seals. I already used two of them for holiday thank note cards. I especially like the silver etching you added. Thank you for joining my swap. Best wishes for 2022!
