About Me

I have been on a bit of a break...a long break, LOL Towards the beginning of my break I got discourage by some of the items I was receiving and ratings that were being left, BUT I was one of the original members of swap-bot and I miss it so after such a long break I want to get back into some swaps!

Now for the fun stuff:

I am 34 years old and live in Washington, not the DC. :o) I received my teaching certificate back in June 2008, but other than subbing for 4 or 5 years I never found a full time position. I love kiddos none the less even though I don't have any of my own. I am very active in my church, where I am the youth and Vacation Bible School Director, and the local F.O.E., Eagles, club. All of these keep me VERY BUSY. But you gotta enjoy life while you have it. I am two time Past President of the Wenatchee F.O.E. and I have been Secretary of the Auxiliary for 6 years. I am an in charge kinda person and if no one is controlling a situation I tend to be the person to take charge. Hey someones gotta lead, right?

I love all things artsy fartsy but my current hobbies mostly center around painting (watercolor and acrylic), crochet, button making ( I have 2 button pressing machines) and of course making masks.

I am also trying to get into more writing since I feel I have a lot to say and need somewhere to express it. I am a very easy going person and just LOVE to get things in the mail, as long as its not bills, those are not my favorite :O)

Favorite Music

Country. I was raised on country. Starting to get into some of the religious Christian music and SOME top 40 stuff.

Favorite Movies

I like pretty much all movies but horror flicks. Too hard to sleep. LOL

Favorite Television

All the CSI type shows, Medical shows, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, those fun types of shows, Sometimes good 'ole cartoons

Favorite Crafts

Crocheting, Kid's Crafts, Anything Crafty, I have been getting into some Polymer Clay

Favorite Books

I love mystery romances. Gregory McGuire, who rights about the other side of fairy tales, I really enjoy these books. I enjoy anything fun to read and funny. Nothing too difficult, I don't like trying to translate the vocabulary in order to understand it. Lately I seem to really enjoy reading paranormal YA books. Vampires, witches, zombies, ghosts, that fun stuff, I don't know why but it works for me :O)

Love, Love, Love

My Favorite Colors

  • Yellow
  • Lime Green
  • Bright Orange
  • Purple
  • Blue
  • Pink
  • Anything bright

Things I like to get...

  • Hawaiian stuff (Especially Flip Flops, Hibiscus, and Palm Trees)
  • Jewelry
  • Goofy, weird Stuff (It doesn't even really to need a purpose that makes all the more fun)
  • Art Supplies
  • Crocheting Supplies
  • Christian Things (But not overly religious, I like crosses and such but not really into crucifixes)

I really love...

  • Flamingos!!
  • Glittery Stuff
  • Things with flipflops on it
  • Cute monkeys
  • Fun crocheted stuff (cutesy or just off the wall)
  • My name on stuff (its hard to find WINDY spelled correctly)

Swaps That I've Been Flaked On

I have been on a break so none of my flakes are current :)


I love ALL fairytales. But I especially like Cinderella, the Princess and the Pea (especially "Once Upon a Mattress") and The Valiant Tailor (also known as "Seven in One Blow")


Amber rated for ATC - Break out the watercolors on Sep 12, 2020
Comment: Thank you for awesome ATC! I love, love, love it!
Comment: My favorite Disney film is Snow White. I love lots of the Disney movies but the musicals are my favorites.
Comment: Another of my favourite Disney movies (because I can't really pick favourites) is Brother Bear. My brother and friend and I absolutely loved the moose characters and knew all their lines by <3
Comment: My 3 favorite Disney movies are Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King
Comment: Thank you so very much for the wonderful "yellow" gifts. I love them!
spicemom rated for Reusable shopping/tote bags on Sep 20, 2013
Comment: Hi windy Love the reusable bags Thank u Alison
Comment: I had to give this some thought and I just cannot be fair and not rate a three. This was ten days late and for the swappers that struggle to get the swaps out on time, I have to be fair to them. After this much time fair to rate up, unforgiveness for such a small thing is not right
Response: I understand...just want on record that I did contact you to let you know that I had a new job that required more attention than I expected the first two weeks, so I did not have any crafting time. (Just wanted to explain on my profile)
hsteffi66 rated for For Postcard Lovers #6 on Nov 11, 2012
Comment: Sorry for the really late rate... But I never got your card. I had a break from 2008 till 2012 and now I saw that I never rated you. I sent all cards to my 3 partners and 2 got no cards from me and I got low rates. Now I re-send these cards and so I saw that I hadn't given your rate. I know it was a long time ago, but I think it's fair. Hope you can understand me. Gladly I'll change the rate after receiving a postcard.
Response: Wow...I'm sorry you don't think you got your postcard, 4 years ago, but I wish you would have PM'd me before rating. I looked back and both the other people got theirs, so from their descriptions you are looking for a fishman PC with a giant fish or a sign that says SKOOKUM with an indian. If you don't see them PM and I guess I can resend

deborahbanach rated for Hearts for everyone! on Aug 14, 2012
Comment: The zentangle is fantastic. I can sure use the stickers. I wish I could give you more hearts. You deserve it. Thanks so much.
Comment: Thankyou for the pics of your gorgeous butterflies :)
Comment: I love what you did with them! So pretty. Γ’β„’Β₯ No worries about needing a little extra time - your communication with me was fine and I'm always more than happy to be accommodating - especially on such a philanthropic swap. (Sorry for the late rate - I was just checking through my swaps and I noticed that I had missed this one.) This is such a wonderful project and I'd like to thank you very much for participating in it, too. :)

CraftyLass rated for Create a Clock Twinchie #3 on Jun 16, 2012
Comment: Thanks for the green twinchie :) Awesome on so many levels - it was GREEN, featured coffee and used a nifty bit of recycling! I've just done a similar thing with a cinema gift card featuring the Avengers, and I've previously made some jewellery by diecutting circles from old bank & store cards and attaching findings :D I always appreciate a good recycle!!!
karry rated for QUICK Book pages swap #7 on Jun 15, 2012
