About Me

I am a wife and the mother of three kids that are mostly grown. I work full-time as a medical transcriptionist. I enjoy crafting, reading, camping and spending time with family and friends. Some of my favorite times are spent crafting with my BFF and/or shopping for craft supplies! We make a yearly adventure of going to the scrapbook expo near us. I am a member of a card making club that meets monthly to make cards.

I like songs from all music genres, but I would say my favorite is that awesome 80's music!

I enjoy reading. One of my favorite authors is Amy Harmon. If you haven't had a chance to read anything she has written, you are missing out and need to give her books a try!

The only movies I don't enjoy are horror movies; otherwise, I am up for a good movie!

I am a TV junkie! I have a favorite show for every day of the week and love to use my DVR! I usually craft while watching one of my shows!

My favorite craft is card making. I send most of my cards at Christmas and enjoy making and sending Christmas cards. I enjoy crafting and being creative. I like to try new techniques. My newest craft hobby is bookfolding which I have really enjoyed. It looks harder than it is, but it is time consuming.

Some of my favorite things are dragonflies, butterflies, hummingbirds, lady bugs, flowers, leaves, anything fall, snowflakes, anything winter/Christmas, steampunk, paisley, owls, peacocks, feathers, keys, fairies, gnomes, mushrooms and woodland animals. I honestly don't have a favorite color and basically like them all equally. I love texture and like to touch things. Needless to say, I don't like signs that say, "Do Not Touch!" I basically have two hobbies ~ crafting and collecting things to craft with. I enjoy collecting everyday ephemera to upcycle/recycle to incorporate into my crafts such as stamps, packaging, junk mail, envelopes, pop cans, material from old clothing, lace, fibers, leather from old belts and purses especially if it has an embossed design, jewelry, watches, and cool tags off of things I have bought ~ I have even bought a shirt because I loved the tag that was on it so much! ;) lol

My favorite season is fall and I wish it would last longer. I just love the crisp fall air and beautiful fall colors, but who doesn't love a fresh snowfall in the winter, a spring rainstorm or a cool breeze on a hot summer day! There is something to enjoy every day!

I only push the sent button after I have dropped the swap off at the post office or the blue mailbox. If you do not receive a swap marked sent, it is lost in the mail. Please message me if this happens, and I will resend. Also please let me know if one of my swaps ever comes owing postage, so I can send you money to cover it. I don't always go inside the post office to have them weigh it because I have a scale and do my best to put adequate postage on, but I have noticed at my own post office different postal workers are more strict and require more postage than others.

Comment: I love the card! you did a beautiful job with spotlighting and I hope you had fun working with it. I also love the pop can butterfly die cuts! I never knew you could use that as material. They are awesome and I I want to try it myself maybe with my die cuts for words. Thank you for swapping with me.
Response: Thank you for your kind words! Yes, I enjoy technique swaps and learning something new, so I had fun with your swap! I am happy you liked what I made for you! You can absolutely die cut words. If a die is very intricate, I use a metal plate in the die cut sandwich. Happy crafting! 🙂

Comment: Loved reading your card. The card and tag are beautiful. I'm going to scrap-lift your idea for the tag. Genius use of plastic packaging. Thanks for participating in the swap.
Response: I am happy you liked what I made for you. Embossing the plastic packaging is a fun technique. Sometimes the plastic embosses clear and sometimes white, but they both look cool. You can also use alcohol inks and acrylic paint on the plastic to embellish it even more. Hope you have fun playing with this new technique. 🙂

Comment: Love everythng about this dex! Thanks for sharing all the cool techniques and the quote is icing on the cake! What ink or medium did you use on the black embossed background paper? So pretty. Thank you for the greeting and extras. Can't wait to use the embossed black paper!
Response: I am so happy you like what I made for you! I really loved doing the cracked glass technique. It made everything look so cool and vintage. It was just calling for a broken pocket watch! :) I used gilding wax for the metallic colored elements on the background. It makes embossing look super cool! I have bought some from Hobby Lobby, but it doesn't seem to spread as nicely as the ones I bought on HSN from Crafter's Companion (Spectrum Noir and Palebo). Happy crafting! :)

Comment: Hi Michele, Oh these are so gorgeous! I adore snowmen and love what you sent to me, thank you so much. So clever using the cotton ball for snow. Thanks again too for your nice note. FYI I received within the last few days but family has been here over the past week. Time to catch up! What do you think of a "clear" dex swap? I could use some of these cool transparent pieces you've sent. Hugs from your Crafty Sista. :)
Response: I am happy you like what I made for you. I love snowmen too! I always have trouble parting with my creations when they turn out cool - lol! I have made a clear dex before and it was super cool, so it would be fun to make another one. Happy crafting! 🙂

Comment: Oh, I love each one of these!!! They are SOOOO nice!!! Also, the 3D way you did the B one, I'd add book, because it looks like the bird and butterfly are the cover of a book. Thank you for reading my profile! A little cat hair wouldn't hurt me, but I appreciate your being considerate. Also thanks for the extras. I decided not to put the letters on the front, because throughout the alphabet I'll have different partners, and I want it to be consistent. I might wait until the end of the swap and put a letter sticker or stamp on each one, but probably not. I'll just put them in order in my binder. There's 26 letters, so I can make an ATC to put first to make it 27, one that says something about the ABCs, like "now I know my ABCs" or something. I look forward to continuing this! And hope I get you frequently!!! Thanks so much!
Response: Thank you for the compliments! I am happy that you liked what I made for you! I still haven't gotten mine yet, but they were fun to make and I can't wait to see the ones I get for my collection. I would love to have you again for a partner and I am excited for the next swap to start and thinking what I can do for the next letters! 🙂

Picture of Christ profile love, I hope you like the picture I chose for you, depicting a youthful and kind/meek Jesus. He also appears to me to be strong at the same time. Compassionate eyes.
