My name is Mindy. I've lived in New Hampshire all of my life. I've been with my boyfriend, Packy, for 18 years. I have 4 fabulous daughters Kaila, Marissa, Shania and Ciera. They are all grown and out on their own. I also became a Grammy in 2021. Her name is Piper and I ADORE her. I love it when we can all get together which isn't as often as it used to be. I really enjoy doing lots of different crafts. I'm always looking for something new to create. However, my favs will always be paper crafts and crocheting. I recently left my Supervisory position. I am starting my own small crochet business and hope to grow it over the next year. I am selling at craft fairs and Etsy. So far I am having a lot of fun with it and meeting some great people.
*I LOVE DIE CUTS!!!! I like to use them on ATC’s, envelopes, etc. Feel free to send me some!
*Swapping Happy Mail
*hummingbirds (all birds)
*Dunkin Donuts coffee. I should just have an IV put directly into my vein considering how much I drink!
*Christmas anything. I totally have OCD=Obsessive Christmas Disorder!
*Anything PINK, iridescent or sparkley. How can one not smile when they see something pink and sparkly?
*Flea market finds. I have a huge Christmas Village display and I got most of the pieces at flea markets.
*Plastic canvas. I bought a huge bin full of plastic canvas sheets and books at a flea market about 7 years ago and I've been hooked ever since. I like to do it when I watch tv cuz it keeps my hands busy. I especially like to make PC Christmas ornaments!
*Crochet. My Grandmother taught me when I was 8 years old. I especially like to make afghans, pillows and Christmas stockings.
*Sewing. I enjoy sewing block quilts. I’ve made lots of memory quilts from clothing.
*I LOVE decorating for Christmas. That's why I start in November and keep it up til January. I decorate for all of the holidays.
*Podcasts. Crime Junkie and Female Criminals are my favorite.
I like to binge watch series on NETFLIX and HULU
*Amish books. I find it interesting how they live and their sense of community.
*Mythical books. Great when I want to escape the real world.
*Chicken soup for the soul books. I have 6 Christmas versions I like to reread.
Obviously, I read a variety of different books.
I'm the kind of person that can picture the story in my mind while I'm reading it as if I'm watching it on a movie screen. Sometimes I'm so involved in the book that when I take a break, it takes me a few minutes to adjust to reality, lol.
I have to take breaks from reading sometimes because it can suck up so much of my life!
I also enjoy listening to audio books in my car because sometimes I travel far for my job.
*A Christmas Story
*Jim Carrey version of The Grinch
*All the Hallmark Christmas movies
*Harry Potter movies, I'm such a dork
*Anything with Robert DeNiro
*documentaries (especially true crime)
*Sheets ripped off of memo pads or post it notes. I literally toss them right in the trash.
*smoking. I hate it when the scent gets into my clothes. Yuck!
*rude people. You get a lot more when you’re kind towards others.
*onions. I wish I liked them because so many people use them when they cook. I gag when I eat them.
*Mushrooms. I gag when I eat these too.
*extremely late raters. I can't stand it when 2 weeks go by after I send something and they still haven't rated me. It leaves me wondering if they ever got it or if it got lost. Or even worse, when months go by and then I suddenly get a message stating they never received my swap.
*no more stickers! Especially the tiny ones. Unless they are Christmas or Halloween stickers.
*I don't care for religious Christmas cards
