About Me

Hello, I am a celebrating my 23rd year as a high school bilingual history teacher and joined swap for a new adventure! Please do not send: anything scented or food items with gluten (sorry I have health issues). On a positive note, I have lots of favorites: pandas, good thoughts, royal blue and hot pink are my fave colors, generally I prefer happy and bright colors. I enjoy crafting, hanging out with family and friends, traveling, visiting our national parks and learning about new places. Due to my busy schedule I do not have any pets, it's not fair for them be alone and I would forget to feed them :o), I can barely keep my plants alive. Tell me a bit about your part of the world. I think one of the best parts about swapbot, is a personal note with the swap, I enjoy hearing about your life too. I am also impressed with your talents as crafters! Wow! Thanks for reading, have a great day!

Favorite Books

FAVORITE BOOKS; Hmm...that one is tough. I love the story in the Harry Potter series. I generally don't sit and read books. I do enjoy books on tape or audio books. I can turn up the story and work on other things at the same time. I like fiction stories and will listen to almost anything, science fiction, mystery, military action stories, and the occasional love story. I am also re-reading the old Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and Black Stallion series.

Favorite Movies

FAVORITE MOVIES: Summer 2021 I watched all the Marvel movies, in order, whew. I still need to find time to watch the recent additions to the series. Some of my other favorites are Lord of the Rings (extended versions), most Rogers and Hammerstein musicals, musicals in general and most Disney movies (Peter Pan is my favorite movie, and Goofy my favorite character). I also like the old westerns: Tombstone, The Cowboys and generally most John Wayne movies. Movie series can keep me entertained for hours: Back to the Future, The Hobbit, Star Wars, Transformers, Shrek, Jurassic World, Toy Story, Star Trek Original, The Next Generation and Voyager, and the Furious Franchise. Stand alone movies: Newsies, Wizard of Oz, It's a Wonderful Life, Meet Me in St. Louis, and The Sound of Music.

Favorite Television

FAVORITE TELEVISION: I enjoy old criminal type shows: all the NCIS franchises, Criminal Minds, Bull and Law and Order SVU and the original Law and Order. Action shows are always welcome, 9-1-1 (both versions), Station 19, SWAT, Hawaii 5-0, Chicago Fire and the new FBI series. I am also hooked on most shows on the Hallmark Channel. Some of my other favorites are also on PBS, Father Brown, Call the Midwife and Royal Flying Doctor Service. Last but not least, I can lose hours watching home improvement shows. Property Brothers, Love it or List it, and recently HomeTown.

OLD CLASSICS: I love the old cartoon shows, the Flintstones, the Jetsons, Looney Tunes, the original Transformers cartoon and the Smurfs. Classic TV reruns, MAS*H, Love Boat, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Perry Mason, the Twilight Zone, I Love Lucy, the Brady Bunch and Fraggle Rock.

Favorite Crafts

FAVORITE CRAFTS: Now this is the section that will get me into trouble :o) I have a dream sewing room which keeps me quite busy...I am the queen of simple sewing projects: bags from coin purses to grocery bags, composition book covers, bowl cozies and Kleenex pouches. In addition I have a separate craft room, with crochet, card making, painting supplies, and a cutting machine. My newest obsession is learning to make things with heat transfer vinyl. I am always working on a project for family, friends or charity. I could spend hours in my sewing room or craft room listening to audio stories all day.

Favorite Music

FAVORITE MUSIC: I love most types of music. My online radio has old country (I mean from the 1950's to 80's), old school rock and roll, anything from the 1950's to late 1980's, then there is Spanish, from cumbias, rancheras, salsas and Latin Pop. I also enjoy easy listening Jazz. Generally I enjoy music that tells a story.

Thank You for Sharing!

THANKS SWAPBOT! OMG, My Swapbot partners shared so many of their great talents with me. You inspired to try new crafts and techniques, I absolutely love flip books and homemade and chunk of cardboard postcards. You brought a renewed sense of creativity into my world. It is so easy to get into a creative comfortable mode, that we don't try new things. One of these days I will figure out an ATC and try one.

Summer 2022, I did take my East Coast summer road trip! Final tally, Albuquerque to Acadia National Park in Maine and home again, 30 days, 6595 miles, 22 states and countless adventures. Thanks to my Swapbot buddies I had the inside track and hometown secrets to Newport, RI, Lancaster, PA, Upstate, NY, Niagara Falls and Columbus, OH. The trip was amazing! Thanks again, I am so pleased you shared information about your state with me. Muchas Gracias! :o)

Comment: First the envelope made me smile, then the little labels that tumbled out to greet me made me smile, and of course your card and note topped it all off. I always wonder what it would be like to live close to a fellow hoarder...we'd probably egg each other on, but also made help each other deplete the stash. Thanks so much for it all and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours, Luisa!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely cardinal card - live long and prosper - Happy Holidays!
Response: LOL. you too, "Live long and prosper!" Have a fantastic holiday season.

Comment: Thank you for the Christmas package! Did you make the tissue holder and coin purse? I love them. And I will definitely use the addy labels and stickers. The bubble envie is so cute! I will likely simply recycle it as is and send it on in another swap. Mele Kalikimaka!
Response: Hello, yes I made them, I love making them all the time. I take leftover fabric pieces and cut them to the correct size, then when I'm bored I can make a bunch. I have a shoebox full. You got lucky and got a matching set! Have a fantastic holiday season! thank you for the heart.
