About Me

I am 60 and I love to create, it's the only time my bipolar mind is at peace.

I am single with 3 cats, Willow, Honey and Shelby.

I live in Smyrna, GA USA and have lived in GA for over 40 years. I was born in Ashtabula, OH near Lake Erie, and I love beach stones and driftwood.

I am new to Swap Bot but not to swapping, I want to Swap in group 3 type swaps so I am working hard to get a good reputation so I can join the crafting type swaps.

Favorite Crafts

My main art form is stone ware pottery, it is part of most every other creation that I do. I like altered art, assemblage, mixed media collage, handmade cards, and Iike to stretch my abilities with different forms.

I am a member of a Facebook altered art swap group always looking for new members that want to be active participants, if you are interested message me

Some of the swaps i have participated in are, altered cigar box, ribbon doll, junk doll, altered blocks, dominos and jenga pieces, altered keys, mason jars and paintbrushes.

It's such fun repurposing things, finding new uses for everyday objects

My likes list

Things I like: I collect angels, goddesses, cats, fairies, crystals, beach stones & driftwood, small boxes, Kwan Yin, boxes with drawers, oh and cats (again)

Colors - jewel/peacock tones, earth tones, favorite color - purple (all shades)

I like sparkly, cruelty-free, natural, gaia, metallic, textures, triangles, spirals, organic, talismans and amulets, symbology, celtic,

I don't draw, paint or sew, so I am especially appreciative of Artists who do and enjoy receiving these types of artwork

Themes I am not a fan of - beachy, skull/bones, scarey, disney, too cutesy,

My personal passion and main creative outlet is Art Pottery, my favorite potter, George E Ohr

Profile Swap: Things that make you happy.

1: Swap-bot: Without it I would have no outside contact as I do not socialize with my neighbours and my family is always busy

2: Roses: partially because my first husband called me Gypsy Rose and I think it describes me well but mainly because they were my dads passion

3: Reading: I read things that take me to other places and times, it appeals to my imagination

4: Yellow: It is the brightest and happiest colour I know and the sight of it always gives my spirit a lift.

5: Lilacs: When I see its purple and white flowers I know that winter is finally over.

6: My Computer: It is where I start and end my days, it holds images to trigger my creative juices and words to keep my brain active and sounds that can soothe or get me moving

7: My grandchildren: Their energy always rubs off on me and makes me more active than I would be otherwise and their laughter brightens any day

8: Creating something: It gives me a smile when I see something I've made and when someone says how much they liked it my heart soars

9: Sunshine after days of grey skies

10: A thunder storm: Actually the flashes of lightening that causes the thunder something about Mother Natures power always makes me laugh with awe.

A few things that make me happy but most of all sharing with someone else is the biggest happy ever.

Profile Swap: Things that make you happy.

  1. Clouds - be it viewing up from the ground or down from the plane. I would imagine animals and stuff from the shape of the clouds. or even jumping on those huge cotton candy land :)

  2. Stars - when i am upset, I would go down to the garden in front of our dorm and lie down on the (dry) grass, listen to David Choi's music, and gaze at the stars. that calms me down a whole lot.

  3. Travelling/Stayaction - visiting new cities i’ve never been to puts a smile on my face. Even a stayacation makes me happy even though i don’t get to travel anywhere. I guess it is the experience of staying in the hotel that makes it feel like not being in the current city i am in. Staycation = Vacation in the hotel of the city you live in.

  4. Kittens/Puppies - they are just so cute and cuddly.

  5. Avocado Toast - yes, its that specific. Hehehe. Actually i love all kinds of bread, but i am on a hiatus from consuming bread. But avocado toast is what makes me happy, every day, all day.

  6. Reading Novels - they allow me to be in a different world walking in the shoes of different people, experiencing through my imagination through the descriptions of the authors. It gives me time off from the things that i am going through at the moment.

  7. Bicycle shaped trinkets - it makes me happy because it reminds me of my bf whom i love so much.

  8. Food - because i am a foodie.

  9. Tulips/Peonies - these two are my favourite flowers and are hard to come by in Jakarta. So when i do get them, it makes me super duper happy. Even though they wither very fast without reaching their full bloom.

  10. Penpalling – I get to be in contact with people far away from me who i regard as friends although we have not met in person yet. I am happy to have found them and call them my friends.

Things That Make Me Happy Swap


My father enjoyed planting flowers. When I see flowers they make me happy because I think about the fun memories of being outside with my Father.


Rainbows make me happy because, I feel a connection with my Father who is in heaven now. When I am unsure of something, I look up and see rainbows like the one above it makes me feel like my Father is telling me everything is going to be ok.


Music is where I go to escape the stress of the hear and now. Music makes me happy no matter what kind of mood I am in.

4.Holding my great niece for the 1st time made me happy. I felt love like never before. It brought back memories of taking care of her Mother. My 1st niece had my first great niece. April 9, 2018. My birthday is April 7 and my 1st born niece was born April 3. The month of April is full of birthdays. Happy times with my family.

5.Spending time with my next to the youngest nieces makes me happy. The look on her face when I told her I was going to take her to Disney on Ice was priceless. The day of the event I did not want to leave the house. But it was worth it. To hear Ava tell me. Thank you Aunt Mare Mare. You are so sweet. Meant the world to me.

6.Going to my Grandmothers house. I find my Grandmother house a happy place. It is quite and peaceful. I enjoy listening to my Grandmothers stories from her childhood. It makes me happy to see my Grandmother interact with my daughter.

7.Watching my daughter grow. I always said I would never have children. But I have a 13 year old little lady. It is never a dull moment with her around. My daughter always know what to say to make me smile. The joys of being a Mother is never ending.


Yellow is my happy color. Sunflowers bring back happy memories of my Mom and Dad planting sunflowers for me. Little things make me happy. And all of my happy thoughts revolve around my family.

9.Going for walks. I find it amazing go for walks and find things in nature that I have never seen before. It makes me stop and think about God and his beautiful world.

  1. Helping my Mother cook family dinners. Just being with my Mom make me happy.
