Here I am with my best friend in the whole world, Renee'. It took me thirty-two years to find her! I used to hear the expression soul-mate and I really couldn't get it, then I met Renee`. I believe men and women are just too different to be soul-mates. So, ladies, if you have one out there, it will be a girlfriend.

About Me

My photo
I am fifty years old and a recent empty-nester of three grown children: nearly 19, 26 & 30. None married, no grand-babies:( I have been married one time for 34 years so far. I am the sixth of eight sisters. I've done a bit of traveling. My restless daughter took me to New York, Paris and London. I love to scrapbook, do needle art, beading,quilt, sew, decorative painting, home decorating and anything else that inspires me after looking at a magazine, HGTV, or the web! I enjoy having internet friends and think of them as modern day pen-pals.

Swap-so-Sweet

I was the luckiest girl in the Whimsical Jar Swap.  Hosted by .jessicarodarte.blogspot.com.   a totally talented artist and mom to three young children.  The sweet jar on top was created by Melinda in Utah, melindasfabricfancies.blogspot.com  It was filled with buttons & bells, pearls. tags, feathers, strings & ribbons.  Too many goodies to mention, and best of all pink glitter.  Smile.
  Deb, super talented gal from
garagesalegal.blogspot.com, was my second swap.  She sent a fun square jar with puzzle pieces on the front and quilling on top!  Quilling is nearly a lost art. It was also brimming over with goodies including a matchbox drawer filled with tiny-goodies! a tiny perfume bottle! a prism! and a giant box filled with lemonheads which went very quickly.
Thanks so much to both of you!
