About Me

I'm married and have 1 dog and 2 new kittens. I'm a teacher librarian. I love to travel.

Please! If you don't receive a swap from me, let me know and I will be happy to re-send. I have found that the USPS cannot be trusted. They even returned to me the entire top inch of an envelope I sent, the rest of which was just lost due to their machine tearing it up.

If you receive something from me with postage due, please tell me and I will reimburse you for it.

Please rate me--I want to know that you received my swap because I DO NOT flake!

Likes / Dislikes

While I like anything that a person is nice enough to send me, I don't particularly care for cartoon-themed items or country/western items.

And please, no friendship books, decos, etc.--I don't swap those.

My favorite color is red, but I like all colors.

Following are some particular likes:



washi tape

ribbon, lace, fibers

Favorite Crafts

I'm not an artist by any means, but I love to make greeting cards and other paper crafts like bookmarks. Pinterest has provided me with much inspiration! Thanks to Swap-bot, I've gotten interested in ATCs, inchies, and altered books/notebooks!

I also love to cross-stitch--I guess because I can't draw pretty pictures, I get some satisfaction out of stitching them.

Favorite Books

Currently Reading: The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Favorite book? I just love books period. If I could make a living by reading, I'd be in heaven! I'm a long time Stephen King fan. I enjoy several different genres, but I tend to lean toward fantasy-- alternate realities, dystopian societies, mythical creatures, etc. I'm not a big fan of westerns or nonfiction, though, especially not self-help. I'm in a book club that meets once a month.

Favorite Music

I like alternative music best. Alanis Morissette, Muse, Florence + the Machine, Hurts, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Sia, etc. But I also like 80's music, some Pop music (but not teen-agery music like Justin Bieber), classical sometimes, some hard rock. I'm not a fan of country music, but there are a few country songs I like.

Favorite Movies

Latest movie watched: Jojo Rabbit Netflix DVD

I love going to the movies. I just love the dark theater, the big screen, the loud sound, and the popcorn! I always go with my sister and husband. I prefer horror, action/adventure, thriller, mystery, sci-fi, and drama more than comedy and romantic. But I'll go see those as well. I also like foreign films and don't mind reading subtitles. Some of the best movies I've seen are foreign. I like some old movies, but I don't tend to be drawn to those.

Favorite Television

The TV keeps me company. I don't necessarily need to be watching it, but I like having it on. However, I do have several shows that I love.

Amazing Race, Vikings, NCIS, Big Bang Theory, This is Us, Doctor Who, The Great British Baking Show, and The Graham Norton Show--I know I'm leaving some out, but those are the ones that are on right now that I watch. Some shows that I love that have been or will soon be cancelled are Grimm, Fringe, Psych, Warehouse 13, Alphas, Longmire, Almost Human, Being Human, and Firefly.

Comment: Loved, loved your card. It was very unique, loved the colors. I will probably steal your design for future use. I just got into the embossing folders and hate covering up the designs with a front cover, and your design lets both show so perfectly. Thanks so much.
Response: I'm so glad you like it! Feel free to steal the design--I got it from Pinterest! Thanks for the heart!

ChelleHames rated for SS: Handmade Envelopes (USA) on May 13, 2020
Comment: I LOVE LOVE LOVE the orange one with the beetles on it! So pretty! And I like how you painted a spot for the address. Is that gesso? (Edit: ha! I should have read the note!) The one with the nest and the one with the butterfly are especially beautiful as well! And of course, who doesn't love Big Ben in England?!?! And a red envie is always needed! (Edit: I thought the shape of it was familiar!) Thanks for all the wonderful envelopes!
Response: I'm glad.you like them! I finally put that gesso to use. I bought it forever ago. Thanks for the heart!
