About Me

I am first a Christian and next, I'm married to my best friend. We have 3 sons, all married to lovely ladies, and 7 grands. I love spending time with my kids and grands. We live with our youngest son and his family.

I enjoy anything to do with my hobbies of stamping, making greeting cards, making and swapping ATCs. I've had to downsize a lot after two moves in recent years, but I still have enough supplies to do some paper crafting.

Years ago, I taught some stamping classes when I lived in Michigan and then in Texas. Now, I do lots of learning by watching YouTube.

Thrift stores are my favorite places to shop. I get so excited to find boxes of stationery. I often wonder who owned it before it came to the thrift store and why she didn't write letters on those pretty papers.

I also love giraffes, zebras and birds, and I I like tea (except for English Breakfast and flowery flavor). Love anything peanut butter, milk chocolate and peppermint.

I do not collect postcards, but since I have received so many in swaps, I will probably send them out as a RAK sometime.

I love dogs and cats but we don't have any right now. In the past we've had all sizes of poodles and a Cairn terrier. We've never had a cat because hubby is very allergic to them. But every morning he puts food out for the stray cats and we enjoy watching them. One gets up to the window and visits with us, but will not come close to us outside. At night, raccoons and opossums visit. My family tells me that all of these animals are my pets. I do love them but it's not like having a pet in the house to cuddle with..

Flower scents and cigarette smoke make me sick. We use essential oils in diffusers. Peppermint is my favorite. I have a lot of health problems...allergic to 4 chemicals including fragrances and one that is used in the process of paper making. I am very limited in the soaps and lotions I can use. I don't have to worry about makeup as I haven't ever used it. I also have psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, Sjogrens syndrome, hypothyroidism, etc. I have had 1 neck and 8 back surgeries. Needless to say, I am not able to do much any more.

I love all colors, but orange is my least favorite. I do use it on Fall cards though.!!

Favorite Music

Old hymns, acapella

Favorite Movies

Hallmark's. I don't go to the movies and only once in awhile do I watch one on TV.

Favorite Television

Dateline, 48 Hours, Local and National News, The Voice

Favorite Crafts

Rubberstamping and ATCs. I like "tasteful" ATCs - none with even partial nudity or very weird and nothing from the dark side, no Halloween and no skulls. Please, nothing with snakes or spiders on. I'm very afraid of both. Also, I'd prefer not to receive any religious items.

Favorite Books

The Bible, Christian novels, Amish romance, anything about papercrafting. I like any papercrafting magazines. Favorites are anything from Stampington. Also, I love to read cookbooks.

About Me

If you ever receive something from me with Postage Due, please let me know. I will be happy to reimburse you. Even the Post Office doesn't get it right sometimes. Recently, my husband took one of my envelopes into the P.O. and brought it back to me in the car. He said they wanted to charge more than $3.00 for it. I told him it seemed like a lot but I guessed I didn't have a choice. So he took it back in and got a different employee who charged him 95¢.

Comment: Hi Marsha, I knew when I read your SB name you had to be a groundhog baby. Such fun to find someone born on the same day! My mom always told me that when I was little I would say, “I’m a brown hog baby” instead of ground hog…Ha! There is a big fuss over G.H. Day in Sun Prairie, WI…in 2015 Jimmy the Groundhog bit the mayor…I think that even made national news. I want to thank you for the lovely little loaded happy mail you sent! Such a pretty presentation in the folded lace doily and each mini goodie was adorable. Thanks for the postage stamps and kitty stickers😊So nice meeting you!
Response: Oh how fun! I didn't know about Groundhogs Day in Wisconsin. The mayor and I have something in common. I, too, have been bitten by a groundhog. It didn't make the news or snything. LOL I'm sure my parents were very happy that she didn't have rabies.
