Hello ALL, I'm looking to find out about Bonnie Knuckey what is your birthday, anniversary (if married), likes & dislikes, favorite color, hobbies, just anything that you would like to share so we (I) can get to know you. I can't wait to get started bring you sunshine in your mailbox and a smile in your heart. :)

Wow! Top of the board! I can tell I have a real go-getter for my SS this year! I bet you will be hard to figure out. SO, let's see I'm 53 (ouch-I sure hate saying that out loud), I'm married with 2 pretty much grown children. Hubs and I have 2 dogs (Australian shepherd mix-Mitch & Sandy) and one cat (Bob-he's a manx-so Bob fits him in more than one way!) I work in a manufacturing plant. We are the world's largest beauty care plant. We produce Pantene, Head & shoulders, Herbal Essences, Aussie, Vidal Sassoon and Fekkai shampoos and Olay, Old Spice and Ivory body washes. I'm not much of a home decorator-we moved bought this house about 7 years ago and the walls are still white! I love to sew-I quilt, and like to sew almost anything and also do a lot of mending and simple alterations for folks. I have a problem with collecting homeless sewing machines it seems like. When I see one at an auction or yard sale, I just have to get it- and usually for almost nothing! I currently have 6 machines-but if I know someone needs one it goes home with them!I love paper-so making cards, and a little bit of scrap booking is fun too. I read books quite a bit, I have a Nook e reader, but still prefer to go to the library every other week or so. I'm old school I guess, I still like to hold the book and feel the paper. I blog..hmmm, I don't think I can post my site here, but if you google bonnieblogyou (all one word)then my blog will come up in the search. I do quite a bit of volunteer work for our little church. I create and publish the monthly newsletter and make the weekly Sunday bulletins. I make banners for the sanctuary- I need to get busy and get some new ones done- those wise men have got to go!!LOL! Well I hope that gives you some ideas...I'm pretty easy in fact, I just love to get a note in the mail that isn't a bill! I like the SS swap because it's always fun to try to send a bit of cheer to someone else-I think it's good for ones soul! Oh and 10-10 is my birthday

Your Voy SS of 2013!

[> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- snuffles/Mariellen, 17:48:24 01/16/13 Wed [1]

To my secret sister: I am not sure what to tell you.

I guess the most obvious thing is my birthday is Nov 26.
I love candy but am diabetic so am trying very hard this year to get it semi under control. So maybe occassionally.
I am making an attempt to getting into shape, really more flexible and moving with without pain. (Chronic pain/fibromyalgia and bunch of other problems), lose about 10-15 lbs hopefully more. So I need a lot of ENCOURAGEMENT to stay on this road til the end of year. Hopefully by then it won't be such a struggle.
I am trying to get back into crafting and so am looking for new or ideas.
I like card making, embroidery and needlepoint (No cross stitching no patience or eyes of it). Would like to learn how to knit and crochet and will try to take classes again this next few month.
I like paper crafts.
I like to ready mysteries, like Diana Motts Davidson, Steve Berry,

If you would like to know more just ask.

Oh final thought I will be 63 this Nov. Am owned by 22 yr old cat who likes to play velcro kitty. I recently lost my husband to parkinson complication.
I am a home body type of person. Hermit Mariellen

[> [> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- SS, 08:39:09 01/17/13 Thu [1]

Good morning Mariellen,

I am sorry about your husband, and I am glad you have your little kitty friend of so many years for companionship. Our pets can bring such peace at times, can't they?

Well, I will try to remember not to tempt you with the sweets for I think most of us know the trials of dieting...not an easy task.

I have asked several board sisters to forward my cards to you. So you will be getting them from all around the country and hopefully won't guess right away who I am :-) One has been sent and should be forwarded on to you shortly.

Do you collect anything in specific; or, like me, and just collect things you love as you see them? That's how most of my 'collections' start..get one and then three, and then I have a collection,lol.

Wishing you the best of weekends. Enjoy and stay warm!

[> [> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- Mariellen,, 12:14:51 01/23/13 Wed [1]

[> [> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- Robbie, 11:22:14 01/16/13 Wed [1]

Hi SS; so the fun begins, I have just come off of 18 months of being ill so I am looking so forward to having fun and living again. I have been married 35 years to a wonderful man who has vascular dementia so his sense of humor and memory are a joy at this time. I have my son's family living with us and that includes 3 children 8,4, and 3 months also a joy. I love to crochet, I love using new yarn with colors that make you want to do something with it so you can see the finished product. I have tried everything and did two weddings from start to finish using my crafting talents. started with ceramics when I was 15, crocheting age 10 and sewing in my teens when I got out of school I tried everything but my peace of mind is crocheting I can relax and make anything, I do not like to use patterns if I don't need to. my favorite color was blue my whole life but now its red/orange strange. I like like and collect boxes and bags unique items to keep things in some are so pretty i can't walk past one of the bags the store sells to put your items in if its different. fun. I hope all is well with you and can not wait for my letter. My birthday is 1/1 and my anniversary is 7/30. I had a great birthday with my family. I can eat anything I have no allergies and I guess I should read all questions before answering them. I also read mysteries.

Have a nice day!
Sue.

[> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- for Annie Burch, 19:06:11 01/14/13 Mon [1]

Hi Annie. I am your SS for this year. Would like to know your likes and dislikes. Birthday, Anniversary, favorite color, collectables and any thing else you would like to share. It will be a fun year.

[> [> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- Annie~B, 09:33:43 01/15/13 Tue [1]

Hello SS,

A new year to start guessing who you are..any hints? LOL!

I really don't dislike much, although I can't have caffeine. So as much as I loved them, I had to give up chocolate and coffee. I like all colors, although I lean towards red, yellow and sage green. I love anything bird related and collect unique writing pens and key rings.

Papercrafting is the major craft I do; but, I really love and admire the things all the ladies on the board make...stitching, beading, card making, etc. I am an avid reader; will read most anything! I like to grow herbs and flowers in containers in the summer. My knees don't allow that ground contact any longer :-) My birthday is May 25; no children living at home, and no pets.

Thanks for touching base...enjoy your week!
Annie~B

And now the FUN starts! Hello my dear SS, how lovely to hear from you : )

Now about myself, I will be celebrating my 60th Birthday this year on May 23rd! Our Wedding Anniversary is June 3rd.
I love to collect thimbles and have already over 60! I used to collect teapots but have cut down on this because of space. I also have quite a few angels. My fav crafts are glass painting and decoupage on glass, making cards, painting and writing poems and stories. I also enjoy beading and some crochet as well as painting from time to time but unfortunately have not had the time lately for all of these.
As you may already know I live on the island of Malta which is in the Mediterranean, have 2 children, our DD is 26 and our DS is now 23. No pets and no allergies. Anyway if you need more info just ask away.

Thanks for contacting me and I am looking forward to lots o'fun this year guessing who you are!

Hugs,
Doreen

I am inviting you to have tea with me, but there is a slight problem. I won't be able to attend, but your presence is still required. Another problem--you will have to have the tea at your house, so grab you favorite cup to drink tea in and enjoy yourself. I do have a favor--I am your SS and I need to know as much info about you as possible. The more you can tell me about yourself and your likes/dislikes, favorite colors, what you like to do, special dates in your life, the more special things I can surprise you with!! So give it up and tell all. Excited to get started!

[> [> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions ---- Laurel Caslow -- Laurel, 17:35:15 01/15/13 Tue [1]

What a wonderful cup of tea!
Yes, I'm a tea drinker, the traditional tea, no herbal for me! Also I am pre diabetic so I am sugar free.
I am almost 60 and have been married for almost 42 years, our Ann. Is on August 14th. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats. We also have a married son.
We attend car shows.
I love to sew. I mostly make placemats,totes and purses. I have also made some baby/children's quilts. Also make other odds and ends. I also do plastic canvas when the mood hits.
I collect thimbles and my hubby says I collect pin cushions because I have a few sitting around, but I love them. He also says I collect fat quarters because I have so many, but I love them,lol!
I use to collect tea pots but ran out of room for them, so now I keep an eye out for pretty china tea mugs. I don't care for the heavy ones.
Well, that's my info for now. Need anything else let me know.
Looking forward to learning about you too!
Laurel

Hi there SS.
I don't have much to tell. I am diabetic so need to watch the sweets. I drink coffee and tea. I collect Campbell Soup stuff, Coke Cola stuff, love antiques of all kinds and have an apron collection. I spend a lot of time on my enclosed Beach Theme porch. Do some counted cross stitch but time doesn't allow for much crafting anymore. This year my husband and I will be celebrating our 40th anniversary. We are taking a cruise in May to celebrate my birthday, Mother's Day and our anniversary which is May 19. I have 2 daughters and 2 grandsons. I work every day and I'm involved in my church. I'm just happy I wake up every day and manage to make it through.
Hope this helps.

[> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- Sharon Depew, 02:45:35 01/16/13 Wed [1]

I am excited about being involved with the group this year :)
I will be 53 on Aug 6th, Colors, I‘ve always liked the color purple, although I like most all colors. Favorite food would have to be Mexican and music I've always listen to country, although I do like Christian music and the oldies.
I have been on a journey to lose weight and so far have lost 25 lbs. I read my bible everyday, attend a little country Christian Church and am the president of our women’s group. I enjoy birds, angels, but enjoy most all things. I have a 6 lb poodle that is my child, we are inseparable she is 16 yrs old and has anxiety so she is always with me. I like flowers, plants, and enjoy being outdoors. We have a big garden in the summer that keeps us pretty busy. I enjoy spoiling our cows and feeding them goodies. :) I always wanted children and was never able to have that joy, so I am blessed and thankful for 2 step grandchildren that are my joy and it makes my heart smile when I heard the name “memaw” :) I like to try my hand at most crafts, but don’t have any particular one that I do on a regular basic, I’m into sashay knitting now. Hope I have helped you out, feel free to ask anything else that I missed.
Thank You and May God Bless You Always.

Hello to my SS. I am a 70 year old retired custodian/janitor. A little about myself. I collect lots of things. Cats, pin cushions and thimbles, tooth pick holders, but my one true collectable is Santa Claus'. I love to sew and embroidery (stamped, not counted cross stitch.)Love making dolls as well as collecting rag dolls. I like tea not coffee. Chocolate is my weakness.
I read a lot of romance novels and like to work on jigsaw puzzles. I have 4 kids and 9 Grand kids. We love getting together to play games (Balderdash is an all time favorite)
My favorite color is red. I like country music and the golden oldies.
Married this year will be 49th anniversary on April 8th. Birthday, August 27.
Looking forward to a great year.

Hi SS,
My birthday is Jan.10 and I was 61 this year and so happy to have made it to this age. So many have not!! I love the colors pink and purple. I love Angels, butterflies, snowmen, Santas. I have just started back into crocheting Angels. First time I have picked up a crochet hook since my Dearly Departed crossed over almost 7 years ago.That is all I can think of for now. If you want to know anything else feel free to ask.
Hugs
Joyce

[> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- For Alma Smith's Secret Sister, 18:13:26 01/16/13 Wed [1]

This year has started off very good.

I am a Sunday School teacher and enjoy studying for the lesson. I don't have anything primitive because neither DH or DC care for that style. I don't collect anything.
I enjoy cross stitching, beading, and pinterest.lol I have been making pillowcases and embellishing towels. DGD has been talking me into making doll clothes. If it were up to her, I would be only making things for her.lol

My Birthday is May 27 and my anniversary is September 4. We have 3 DGC: a GS who will 12 this year, his sister will be 6 and our DS's son who will be 8.

My DM who is 82 is moving in with us when we finish building our log house. We hope to have it finished by mid summer if our money holds out. My DM stays with us for a day or two each week just to get her used to living with us.
My favorite colors are blue, pink, and red.
I love Thanksgiving better than any other holiday.
Spring is my favorite time of the year.
I enjoy a cup of coffee.

I hope this helps and if you need any more info, just ask.

Have a great one :) and (((Hugs)))
Your SS Alma

[> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- For MaryLee's SS for 2013, 13:08:52 01/17/13 Thu [1]

Hi there I am so excited to be in the SS swap. I always enjoy having so much fun through the year and trying to keep myself a secret. My BD is March 12th, Anni is Oct 11th, married to my wonderful hubby, kids are grown, have had my own craft business for many years but now we are planning on moving south closer to family and are in the process of trying to find land and build a new home so I have cut way back on crafting for now. My favorite colors are seafoam green and mauve and neutrals. I love to sew and do wood crafts. I collect alot of different things, bears, bunnys, dolls, black cat items, antiques like old tins, kitchen graters, old milk bottles, etc. "Our" hobby is showing our 1972 Corvette at shows and cruises. We also like to go on vacation ! I have bad allergies and don't burn strong scent candles. If there is anything else you need to know just ask. I am hoping this will be a fun year for us all. Hugs, MaryLee

[> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- Judy Dotson -- to my Secret Sister, 14:46:13 01/17/13 Thu [1]

HI, I sent one message and just as I hit send our power went off! I hope you don't end up with two answers, but here goes again! LOL My birthday is January 4, anniversary Feb. 2. We have 6 children, 2 (18 & 20) still at home, and have 8 grandchildren. I like most all crafts but am more into the paper crafts and card making right now. I don't like gag gifts usually, and can't have candles in the house as they make my husband miserable. I like small things and am not a big collector of any special thing, just keep lots of stuff that I like. :-) I use a lot of brown tones in my house and burgandy and white in my kitchen--there again no special theme. I like both coffee and tea and love chocolate. I like to cook and like trying different types of recipes. I am looking forward to a great year!!
Judy

Hi my new secret sister,
I'm looking forward to this years quest! My likes, anything homemade, angels, candles, tea,hallmark ornaments, homemade ornaments anything Christmas! My favorite holiday is Christmas and I was disappointed this year that I couldn't do all the decorating I usually do because of my medical problems. My birthday is Nov 3 and I'm 56 years old. I was married for 28 years and my DH passed away 18 months ago. We weren't blessed with children, but I have many nieces and nephews that are like my own. I have 1 furbabie a beagle named Bonnie. She was a rescue and I've had her for 7 1/2years. I want to get into card making, have a cuttlebug and lots of dies that I haven't used yet. I'm a big tea drinker and like all kinds of tea. I am a uterine/ovarian cancer survivor, diagnosised last March, Treatments are finished for now, No real themes in my house. Living room/dining room is mauve and colonial blue. I love blues, purples, green and mauve. I don't have many dislikes except I'm not into anything primatives. If you need to know anything else just ask. Looking forward to a year of fun!
Hugs, Debbie

We are having a cold, cold spell too. Good weather to stay indoors and craft! I think I have another email set up now so you may just get an email from me in the next day or two.
Glad to hear that you are able to do some crafting, that has to help the time go by.
Stay safe and warm!
Hugs!

[> [> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- Secret sis to Deb, 15:25:51 01/18/13 Fri [1]

Thanks for the info. Happy to see you post. Are you able to do any of your crafting at the present time? I hope to be a great SS to you.

[> Re: OT: SS SWAP : info about your SS and Questions -- SS of Debbie from NJ, 19:44:30 01/23/13 Wed [1]

Hi Secret Sister,
Sorry I'm late in answering but I haven't been on the computer in several days. In answer to your question, I am able to do my crafting but at a slower pace. Right now I'm crocheting a baby blanket for a friend who is expecting. I'm also working on designing Cinderella invitations, centerpieces and favors for a friend's daughter's 1st birthday. Everything takes a little longer since my right arm is still partially paralyzed. Have a good week. Hope you are warmer than I am, it was 2 degrees here this morning with a wind chill of -12.
Debbie
