About Me

I always make sure that I mail on time in swaps so if for some reason you do not get something that I sent...please please email me. My post office has a once a day pickup so if something gets dropped off after 4, it will be postmarked the next day. As I said, I always mail on time, so ask if you question anything. I will always email back so we can figure it out. Same goes for ratings, if I have not rated you and I should have, please email me. I try to record everything when I get it. I will not rate until I know the situation.

I am a Wife and Mom of two boys and one girl. They are all grown up now but still my babies. I quilt and have a store on Etsy called SmashedAcornDesign and I sell wallets, sanitizer holders, handbags, masks, key fobs, and more. I have always loved to paint using watercolor and mixed media. I got into letterboxing a while ago and started carving stamps and homeade logbooks then planting them in my area. Proud Mom of 2 dogs - 1 wire haired dachshund little girl named Squirt and one half beagle and Doxie girl named Annie.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading comic books, graphic novels and crime novels. I always have a book checked out from the library...actually multiple books. No matter what time I head to bed, I have to read. Needless to say, when the story gets good, next thing I know its 3 am. Totally fixated on the Wizard of Oz graphic novels now.

Favorite Television

I watch British Cooking shows, Property Brothers, mysteries, crime, suspense, scary not gore horror movies, football, hockey.

Love to watch Spencer’s Ogg on YouTube to make pretty things in my sewing machine. I watch a lot of sewing videos and practice and learn. No one showed me how sew and I had to learn myself.

Actually love listening to podcasts while I sew it drive. Varies from Dateline to Magnus Archives to Chilluminati.

Favorite Crafts

I love to sew. My Etsy store SmashedAcornDesign is my baby. I love to sew pretty things and having others enjoy what I made. I am always learning new things as I sew. I have a fabric obsession too! In addition to making bags, wallets, and cozies.. I love making Christmas table runners, gnomes, ornaments.

I enjoy creating carved stamps for letterboxing ,postal letterboxing, Homemade PC, homemade Christmas ornaments.

I enjoy collecting post cards - either vintage or creations with history or destinations, coke/pepsi girl vintage inspired, old bicycles, book pages, birds and ...and...haha

I love to paint also. Either watercolor or acrylic depending on the mood.

likes / dislikes

I have never been a fan of cutsie. I like things that are cute but not like say Precious Moments or sparkly with puff balls. I like farmhouse designs and doxies but more in the realistic edge. Love wooded scenes.

I like fall colors, leaves, pumpkins, trees of all seasons, birds, landscapes, ocean, mountains, some beach.

I love blues, greens, purples.

I collect old postcards and original art ones. I prefer naked postmarked ones. I enjoy the PC to look well traveled but not ripped or ruined.

Love love coffee and tea.

I really enjoy tea - current favorite is Vanilla latte from Plum deluxe. English tea shop chocolate and super berry burst was my favorite but cannot find it anywhere!! I love berries and hibiscus but NOT peach. Love trying all kinds that I cannot get at the market but country stores. Loose flavored teas in tins are amazing. I like unique tins! Unique teaspoon for the teas is always fun.

Coffee fav is Trader Joe's Medium roast. I am not a fan of starbucks due to the "burnt" flavor it has to me. Everyone is different and its hard to all agree on some things ;)

I love to read. Soft covered books worn well but not falling apart. I enjoy mysteries and some urban fantasy. Bookmarks are great and I love collecting those that are unique and handmade too!

I love recipes and trying new recipes. I prefer 4x6 recipe cards in a swap. I have been on a keto diet so trying to limit sugar but if its a delicious favorite, I can hold onto it for cheat days!

Hand carved stamps are preferred but love unique store bought stamps.

Always want: Fabric, thread, embroidery floss, crosstitch, stencils, designed tissue papers, tags, twine, paper stickers, heavy cardstock, binary trading cards, ornaments, vintage pictures and sayings, washi, cardinals, squirrels, acorns.

Love creativity and I don't care if its not perfect but effort showed. Never know how good you can be until you try. Effort is everything. A++++ for effort.
