About Me

I am a 44 year old woman who lives in Oregon with my very best friend (who happens to also be my husband). I have 5 children who are grown and doing their own things, 1 granddaughter (who hung the moon as far as I am concerned) and 2 dogs and a cat that don't realize they are animals (probably my fault). I enjoy the outdoors (hiking,camping,etc). I spent my childhood as an army brat then the next 20 years in Louisiana and now have lived in Oregon for the last few years. I love Oregon except that I miss people who are still in Louisiana. I have been crafting for years but I am new to swapping and I LOVE it. Well that is all I can think of for now. I hope yall have a blessed day!

PETS (because I love Pet Swaps)

Maggie-my weiner girl who loves me beyond measure (the feeling is mutual), tolerates a few other people, thinks everyone is trying to harm me and its her job to make sure I am completely safe at all times. She loves her toys. She has a TON of personality and energy in a tiny package but ready for a nap at all times.

Ginger- My sweet little Chihuahua girl. She has no time for Maggies shenanigans. She just wants to relax in someones lap, sit back and judge Maggies bad behavior like shes her intolerant mother. She loves a stuffed toy every now and then but only will play with small ones.

Stinky- My laid back "cool cat". Loves pets and snuggles (when shes in the mood), doesn't like toys (she thinks shes to regal and uppity for such things). As far as our pets go, Stinky thinks shes the boss of everything.

Favorite Music

I love a lot of different music. My favorite kinds are rock and roll, country and oldies. My favorite musicians are Bon Jovi, Patsy Cline, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Elvis Presley, Neal McCoy. I like a lot of Christian music. I basically just enjoy a little bit of everything.

Favorite Books

I LOVE to read. My favorite of the moment is the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evonovich. Its a series about a hilarious female bounty hunter who fell into the job and is totally unqualified but she manages and is constantly finding herself in funny and awkward predicaments. I read pretty much whatever I can get my hands on. I usually prefer books with a comedic edge. I also like a good mystery or suspence every now and then. With books they have to grab my attention in the first one or two chapters or I cant read them.

Favorite Movies

I really enjoy watching movies. Some of my favorites are: Dirty Dancing Hope Floats Steel Magnolias Forrest Gump The Wizzard Of Oz Almost anything Disney (especially the classics) Ghost Grumpy Old men Beaches I love watching movies so im always ready to watch something new.

Favorite Television

I don't watch a lot of TV, if I do its usually on Netflix but I do have a few favorites: Army Wives Grays Anatomy ER Rescue911 Hart Of Dixie Unsolved Mysteries Americas Funniest Home Videos The Dog Whisperer Law and Order (all of them) Heartland

Favorite Crafts

I love arts and crafts, they are my therapy. My favorite is paper crafting, especially card making and making mini albums and making junk journals (especially out of "little golden books"). I am really into swapping because I have an excess of paper crafting supplies and this is a great way to go through my stash and make amazing new friends all at the same time. I do also dabble in jewelry design, bible art journaling, altered art, art journaling, repurpose crafts (making something new out of something old). I love all thing crafty and love trying new things. If I don't know how to do it I usually just youtube it and wing it.

My favorite things

Anything for junk journals / Fabric / Ribbon / Lace Buttons / Doilies (paper or crochet) Little golden books or other interesting books to make into junk journals Chidcraft books or book pages Saturday evening post ephemera Mary Engelbreit ephemera Rosie the riveter ephemera Vintage women and people ephemera Butterflies / Dragonflies / Cute woodland critters Postage stamps / Christian or Faith based items Vintage or vintage looking : Playing cards / Bridge cards / Bridge tallies Game score sheets Valentines (kids and adults) / Greeting cards Interesting papers / Calling cards Cigarette cards / Button cards / Post cards Pamphlets / Music pages / Decorated napkins Stationary / Sewing patterns / ads / Labels

Comment: Amazing swap, as usual...you went way beyond. You just make me feel so special. Let me just tell you, I actually thought you didn't remake two of the embellishments and just took one. The last thing I read was the tracking card..That's when I said wait...what she made the balloons and the so sweet rosette. I was blown away, had to catch an uber back. LOL You are so incredibly talented...Thank you soo much for the goodies. I love the handmade cards, the clothes pins, and the Jillibean goodies. You give the BEST goodies. I loved all of the extra goodness inside for the packaging. The sequins and purple crinkle paper. You even decorated the padded envelope. Love, love loved it.
Response: You are so sweet. Everything you have said about me, I have thought about you. I have absolutely loved every swap we have done. You are so thoughtful in the way you put a swap together, You are so talented and creative. It blows me away. Cant wait to swap again, hope you are doing well.

Comment: You are so creative. Once again, you just made me speechless. Can I first talk about the paper choice. I loved the craft themed paper. I was so afraid to try different closures for the books, I really appreciate the creativity. The butterflies, I have been wanting to try the layered butterflies. Did you punch out 300 of them? The mini book case was awesome. I loved the shakers, so creative to put them on crepe paper rosettes! The bows, I've never seen anything like it. And the mini envelopes, you are the BEST at making those. I can pop them on a card and keep it moving. So you are a great swap partner for your crafts and you give the BEST goodies. I love my my V badge. The purple paper, cut aparts, and card base will be used. The embellishment box, the sticky notes, stickers, the charms, just an abundance of goodies. You are soo incredibly generous. I'm just speechless. Your mini bookcase is decorated perfectly. I love the feet. You did an amazing job. It is such an honor swapping with you. I can't thank you enough.
Response: Thank You so much for all the kind words. I am so happy that you like what I sent. I absolutely love swapping with you as wel. You a5re so creative and talented.

I love have you arranged the gorgeous lace down the middle where half ended up on one ATC and the rest of the lace is on the other ATC. You have "put them together" to view the complete lace pattern! Very chic! The lady bugs are just plain bonus! I about died when I saw them. I love them! I am deeply touched that you made me something so precious! You are so talented! Thank you for the two little birdies and bookmarks too. It was an honor to be your partner!
