Update Nov 14, 2023 - I had a great time visiting my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson for a couple of weeks at the end of October. Back to swapping.
Please note, I only go to my mailbox 1 time per week, and I rate as soon as I open any swap.
If you do not receive a swap, please reach out to let me know. I appreciate the opportunity to replace the original.
I am retired, married and we live with our cat, Casey in a quiet cowboy/horse town in the Arizona desert. We have an adult son and he, his wife, and our grandson live in Europe. I LOVE being a grandma!
I enjoy all types of DIY projects and want to try and learn it all! I love to go to flea markets and antique stores - the fun is in the hunt for that perfect piece to add to my collections! I have even gotten my husband interested.
I enjoy playing MahJongg and play once a week with a group at our local community center. I also play in local MahJongg tournaments and those keep me on my toes! (I won my first prize on Aug 3, 2023!)
I love Paper Crafts - card making, journaling, book making, ATC's. My friend finally got me into decos and i'm really enjoying creating those.
I love mixed media art and assemblage. I make "memory jugs" using a lot of my favorite collections. I currently am making an angel jug where the base is a 5-gallon stone crock, encrusted with angels, and I have a mannequin bust I am encrusting with religious medals and will hang my collection of rosaries on.
I enjoy quilting and am currently working on 2 queen size quilts for my guest room. I finished the Cat in the Hat quilt. Still need to finish How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
I read every John Grisham novel. I enjoy a good story that engages a reader from the first chapter. Absolutely loved The Hunger Games series - Katniss Everdeen lives in my heart forever. I have not read the Harry Potter books, nor have I seen the movies - while I have some interest, I think the "hype" keeps me away. Possibly my expectations are too high? I have recently read Celeste Ng's novels and highly recommend any of her books.
I don't watch a lot of movies, but my top favories include Dirty Dancing, Shawshank Redemption, Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music, It's A Wonderful Life, and how could I forget The Godfather Trilogy (but #2 is my favorite)
Lately we watch a lot of shows on Netflix. My husband loves the limited series. If anything goes past a 3rd season, he loses interest and then I have to watch the rest on my own, which is fine. I spend more time watching You Tube Videos and like watching tutorials to learn a new craft or technique.
I like a variety of music, including oldies, rock n roll, current pop artists, country, and will occasionaly tune into classical and broadway showtunes.
