About Me

July 2024- I’m back! I have missed swapbot friends so much! Repairs were made since last update but renovations were minimal so for now things are at least back semi organized so I can resume swapping.

May 2024- After all the recent rains and storms we discovered water in our basement. My craft room (swapping supplies) and girl cave is down there. After taking down all the dry wall and insulation we discovered we have a long vertical crack in the basement wall. So, everything is packed up and swapping is on hold for a couple of weeks.

Other than that....Things are going well and I am looking forward to warmer sunny days. Peace and blessings abound in your life.❤️ alt text

WELCOME! Thank you for stopping by to meet me.

Mimosagirl ...my Swapbot id has a connection to a tree planted in my yard. It was a gift by one of my sons who saved a small twig from the trash heap of a greenhouse/nursery he was working at when he was a teenager. He is now 34 and the tree is huge.

I’m a 58 yr old as of May 2024 and enjoy my life. I love gardening, history, art, Japanese gardens, spelunking through caves, and just about anything that I can get my body to agree with. I have good days and not so good. I’m not sure what I have other than arthritis. I started upping my vitamins and water that seems to have helped oh and reduced salt and sugar intake. Wish me luck! 😀 —Most types of music are interesting to me. I was a teenager in the 80s so I'm fond of pop/rock from that era. I like some bluegrass, older country, I enjoy listening to Japanese music, a little Kpop occasionally, and often spend my early morning time tuned into 1940's UK radio on the web. ——Speaking of 1940's, I am a huge fan of vintage (1930-1950) postcards, womens handkerchiefs, vintage style fashion, brooches, playing cards, food tins, Christmas decor, and just about anything from that era. I often watch 1940-50’s movies.

Favorite Books

True stories about history and events. Currently reading :

2/7/24 : Naturopathy - Herbal Remedies (books from the library and online resources)

9/23/20: Reading our Rural Missouri Magazine. You can access it on their website. Great recipes.

9/2/20 : I was given a stack of paper crafting magazines so I am enjoying those right now and watching tons of DIY youtube videos. With current events I can't get into a book it seems. I have a hard time staying focused and remembering what I have read. So....I try to just keep busy.

2/2020: Enjoying my sons Cricket magazine sub. 8/18/19: A Gathering of Days

8/6/19: Hero on a Bicycle - about a boy in Italy during the Nazi occupation.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy paper crafts like card making, Scherenshnitte, miniature book making, ATC,& now into making Memorydex Cards.

Memorydex swap information: I store my MEMORYDEX Cards in a tray/box system. So they can be tall but not much hanging over the sides. Thank you for considering this when swapping with me.

Junk Journals are a favorite. The lacy, ribbon filled, lots of pockets and tuck spots, made from an old hard back book....I'm working on one for myself that is very girlie, with lots of lace, shades of pink/rose and ecru white. Vintage slightly creepy.

Sending love to you! Sorry about the late comment. At first, I thought I was only supposed to rate people on this particular swap and didn’t know that I needed to leave a comment. My apologies. I am still learning. 💗

Have a happy New Year! 🎆
