UPDATE

UPDATE: I will be taking a short break due to a wrist surgery. I am not sure how long it will take to heal but I will finish all my swaps that are due.

I have been away for the holidays and awaiting the birth of my first grandchild. He arrived Jan 6, 2016 and his name is Jack, after my father. I am so excited to be a new grandmother.

My current interests are making junk journals and love to collect things to put in them. ATC's, tags, rolos, inchies, twinchies, bookmarks anything where I can use images and embellish. I have recently started making journal pages and I enjoy those as well. I also like to alter things and collect all kinds of different items and embellishments that I can use in alterations.

ITEMS I LIKE: I love images anything I can fit on an ATC, Rolo, Journal Page, or junk journal. I love vintage ladies, men, children, gypsy, ballerina, fairies, Angels, butterflies, flowers, seasonal, animals, dogs, objects etc. Frozen Charlottes are a new fave I love the minature dolls as well as images I can use on atc etc. I also like Victorian an retro images as well as the unique, weird, funny and different all kinds of images that I can use. I also collect all types of embellishments such as lace, trim, diecuts, metal pieces, game pieces, charms, bling, resin, crochet, something handmade I'm not picky surprise me. I still love paper as well. I love anything shabby chic or vintage both styles are my favorite!

I am lovin anything tea or avocado dyed. I have been hunting for vintage fabric pieces and vintage lace and trim. I have been using my sewing machine and like to sew fabric on paper to make embellishments for junk journals.๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

About Me

I live in Oklahoma and I am married (12yrs ) I have two grown boys who are wonderful young men. I also have 3 dogs that are rescues. I never intended to adopt 3 dogs (chihuahua's) it just happened that way and I love all animals and try to support them as much as I can by raising money doing bike runs and giving what I can for their charities. I got into crafting when my son left home and I turned his room into a crafting place, my room where I can play with my crafts and forget about everything. I have decorated it "shabby chic." I like the muted soft colors such as pink and green, lavender. I even have a pink and clear chandelier. I am always looking for organizations tips for my craft room with all my crafting supplies. Just when I think I have enough and all organized, I find something else I think I need and the organizing never ends. I love pretty boxes to hide my messy craft supplies. I hope I am not the only one who does this. Can anyone have too many crafting supplies? I pretty much like unique and different things as well.

Likes and Dislikes

LIKES - I like to collect decorative paper, stuff for junk journals, die- cuts, embellishments, ribbon, beads, paper/fabric flowers, decorative clothes pins, mini-hangers, anything that is crochet, pretty scraps of material, rubber stamps, vintage postcards, stamps from other countries, ATC supplies, and anything you could probably think of I will most likely find a use for.

I like anything from Shabby Chic, Victorian, Vintage to Industrial Chic, and rustic, steampunk, etc. I like to make crafts that require a distressing techniques on boxes, charms, papers etc. I like I also like to decoupage using papers that includes vintage looking script paper or pretty napkins. I also like ideas or instruction for a craft item that I can make. I recently began collecting vintage images of witches, love it on a tag or ATC. I like the vintage photos of vintage girls, vintage ladies, vintage pin-up ladies, black n white or anything different.

I like to take ordinary objects and alter them into something completely different. I like to use rusty metal pieces, junk that most people may throw away I will find a way to recycle it into "my little piece of artwork." I also like the cute but kind of creepy images of Ryden and Mab Graves. I would love to receive something altered by you.

I don't have one particular style when it comes to crafting because I don't want to be limited I think it depends on what I am trying to create and I like to keep my options open. I am really very easy to please.

**Would like to receive ** - All types of ephemera, love printed images, especially vintage and Victorian, embellishments, unique paper, lace, ribbon, die cuts, foiled, handmade envelopes, easy to please.

DISLIKES - I DON'T LIKE PARTNERS WHO DON'T RATE!!!!! NOT COOL : I think non-raters are worse than flakers to me because I put a lot of times and effort into my swaps. I would much rather receive a rating based on my swap

I guess if I had to choose something I don't need it would be plain envelopes and plain stationary, childish items (cartoon characters etc.), reward stickers, no Disney. L

My favorite colors are soft pink!!!! and green (pistachio or mint green) peach, lovin all the pastels that are in style right now. I also like the primary and bright colors so it depends on my mood and the project..I like to incorporate all colors into my crafts so no color is off limits.

If I am doing something wrong or you didn't receive my swap please send me a message to correct. Due to the price of postage I don't send certified and some of my things have got lost in the mail so contact me and I will resend. I try my best and take a persons profile into consideration when possible. If there is something you don't like please let me know I can take criticism, I am trying to improve myself as a crafter as well as a good swap partner.

Comment: Kim, you're such an artist! All you work is always so special. I couldn't find these initially because I had already added them to my journal fodder envelope! Love the variety of colors and designs. My absolute favorites are the purple one with the green triangles and the pink/green combo with flowers. You sent so many--I'm so happy! Thank you for always being a wonderful partner. p.s. Your extras are AMAZING! They deserved their own swap ;+) Thanks bunches.
