Hello There!

I am an easy going chick, have a unique sense of humor, very open minded, I like tattoos, my ears are gauged, I love all animals, I enjoy meeting new people, I love to learn something new every day, I'm a child at heart (a nerdy child), game-show nut, puzzle nut (word find, soduku, fill-ins, brain teasers, cryptic puzzles all of them!) I love my parents, my Mom is my BFF, and I just try to enjoy life!

Postcards, from this point on I am only interested in handmade PCs, however, if you have regular PCs that fall into any of my likes, let me know!

My beautiful Mother and I when I was a wee one:


My Mom now! She is super creative, and has a heart of gold! 💕💋 💖 Mom

As for me!

I just love to be creative, I love making things. I guess you could call me a dabbler, I have a tendency to try anything just to see how its done. However, my favorite crafts to do are paper crafts (particularly cards, ATC's, collages & stamping), art journaling, sewing, trash to treasure/recycling type crafts, and when I have time miniatures. I am obsessed with paper and ephemera, and love to use it in my crafting. However, I am NOT a scrapbooker.

I really love making ATC's, handmade envelopes, note cards, bookmarks, postcards, inchies, twinchies, chunky houses, I love using nicely patterned papers, I really like unique and monochromatic papers, stickers that I can alter/zhugh (but just love stickers regardless!). I want to try these new ATC Coins!

I took a break from Swap-Bot for a bit, due to life, I missed it so. Because of inactivity, I was bumped from many of the old groups I was in, I noticed a few are not even active anymore, and I am already in a few great ones, and can't wait to swap in them. However, if you are a member/founder/officer of a group that you think is right up my alley, PLEASE let me know, I am looking for some awesome, and active groups!

I am a member of a Fraternal organization called Loyal Order of Moose, and I am a "Woman of the Moose" I am very proud to be a part of this organization.
More about the organization, -->Moose International
The reason why we exist is to care for school age children at Mooseheart Child City & School in Illinois, and for our retired seniors at Moosehaven in Florida.


I LOVE movies! Just as much as crafting! I particularly like horror, sci-fi, like Star Wars (original), Lord of the Rings (books and movies), Harry Potter series, Bazaar & unusual movies, (including foreign), and comedy/action type movies, cheesy 50's & 60's horror, as well as the new cheesy Sy-Fy channel movies! I am also a total sucker for the typical "guy flick" action movie!

Some of my favorites are Long Kiss Goodnight, Batteries Not Included, Monster Squad, The Purge Movies, the Die Hard Series, ET, The Thing (John Carpenters Version), Avatar, Jurassic Park, Predator Movies, Alien Movies (the actual series with Sigourney Weaver), Jennifers Body, Chappie, The Abyss, 28 Days Later, American Werewolf In London, Labyrinth, Pan's Labyrinth, Legend💕, Willow, The Dark Crystal, The Neverending Story, Big Fish, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, The Green Mile, Hellboy, Fantastic Beasts, The Princess Bride, The Fifth Element, and so many more I can't even list them!!

Some of my favorites tv shows are; American Horror Story, Orange is the New Black, The Travelers, Frontier, Supernatural (I'm a Dean girl), Grimm, American Gods, The 100, Legion, The Handmaids Tale, Fargo, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, Ash Vs Evil Dead, Future Man, Freakish, Harlots, true crime like Snapped & Swamp Murders, and any kind of cooking/baking competition show (like Nailed It, Zumbos, Baking Championships, Guys Grocery Games, etc).

💞Music is life!💗 I am listening to it about 90% of the time! I like all types of music, from Beethoven to ZZtop with oldies, country, pop, and metal tossed in too! If I absolutely had to pick a genre it would be a toss-up between 70s/80s rock, and the '90s! I do love being introduced to new music. Just to give you a taste of my ecclectic music taste there is one playlist that I listen to everyday, it is constantly changing, but right now, 12 random artists on it are:

  • Lady Gaga💕
  • Post Malone
  • Santana
  • Kansas
  • Ramones
  • Billy Holiday
  • Blue Oyster Cult
  • Alan Jackson
  • Regina Spektor
  • Blind Melon
  • Lukas Graham
  • Styx
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Ice T


I LOVE to read (as I said, I love a lot of things!), my book tastes are similar to my movie and TV tastes, horror (love earlier Stephen King, before he was hit by the car....), True Crime, Science fiction, supernatural, mystery (I adore Nancy Drew!), history (especially ancient times), and the occasional autobiography.


  • Colors: Purple(from lavender to eggplant), Orange, Blue, and Darker Pinks. Metallic: Silver and Copper (never been much of a gold person)
  • Color Combos: Purple & Silver, Black & Orange, Black & Red, Black & Pink, Brown & Pink (Blue or Purple), Black & White, Black w/silver, monochromatic themes.
  • Zentangles
  • Handmade Postcards (handmade only unless it is one of my likes/things I collect)
  • Decorated & Decorating Envies
  • Christmas I love all of the decorating, gift/card making and general warm fuzzy feeling I get!
  • Winter Themes (non-Christmas, snow, snowmen, scenes, etc)
  • I also love anything vintage (real or reproduction) from the '20s and '40s specifically.
  • I bake like a mad woman! I enjoy cooking as well, but baking is where it's at for me! Cookies, cakes, candy, muffins, cupcakes, and I make a killer cheesecake! Baking and Crafting are my stress relievers and bring the most joy as my alone time.
  • Stickers! Stickers! STICKERS!!!
  • Washi Tape
  • Crap! Trash? Ok, maybe not trash, but bits and baubles that most would throw out, that cereal box, clean candy wrapper, scraps of ribbon or fabric, broken jewelry, etc. I love things like this, including ephemera, love it, and love to use it in my crafts!! Let's call it "spatially challenged" as it has no space anywhere, but in my home for future use! Yes, spatially challenged...
  • Anything Mario Brothers. One day I hope to have Amis of various characters Particularly Yoshi, Pink Yoshi, Boo, Toad, Goomba, Koopa and Bob-omb!
  • Small things! Who doesn't like tiny things? I have a collection of random tiny things, they are displayed in an old typeset drawer! They could always use friends!
  • Miniatures, love 1/12 scale, but smaller scales are fascinating to me (like 1/24 & 1/48)
  • Mini Train sets & layouts, N & Z scale in particular.
  • The Minions (from Despicable Me, I seriously have TONS of minion collectibles! I particularly love Bob (the short plump one with the bear), Dave (shorter 2 eyed guy) and my absolute favorite is Stuart (one-eyed guy)

  • Butterflies🦋

  • Unicorns🦄
  • Dragons🐉
  • Day of the Dead/Skulls💀 (not cartoon DOTD, and Anatomical Skulls, especially turn of the century illustrations)
  • Zombies!!🧟‍♂️!
  • Monsters (especially old school monsters)
  • Monster High Dolls! (LOVE THEM, they are not making them anymore! Boo!)
  • Horror Related Anything

I felt Halloween Deserved it's own space.

I love Halloween, and other than clowns, I love everything about it. Ghosts, witches, pumpkins, costumes, the Devil imagery, bats, spiders, ALL OF IT. From the cutesy to the gothic, to the gory, skulls, mad scientist labs. If it can be categorized as Halloween, I LOVE it!

I love the color combinations of Purple & Orange, Black & Orange, for Halloween and for every day. Vintage Halloween, gothic Halloween, and so on!

So I am always, and WILL ALWAYS, welcome anything Halloween themed! ANYTHING!

I rate swaps on Tuesdays & Fridays.😁👍📫

I also like to swap the following, I have them in their own "section" so as to allow for swap partners to see what I like. I prefer to swap US only on them, but, I will return anything to 🌎anywhere!🌍

I really want to start swapping Deco's again. I really enjoy making them, and HQ FBs, so message me if you are interested in a private swap, or know a group that is active!

Dislikes Nothanks

Raffia, that mesh "ribbon" everyone makes those wreaths with, anything Disney with the exception of stickers, and lighthouses (imagery). Coffee. I also understand everyone loves to be creative, but I do have severe asthma, and things that smell heavily of smoke, do give me issues. Just to let you know.

Anything religious, I respect everyone's faith but please no religious items, or themes, thank you. Exception a swap that calls for it like Easter, or for Christmas, I am ok with it in those instances, thank you! 😊👍

I love hard candies, sour, sweet, particularly cherry flavored, but I also love orange and raspberry! I also like lollipops, skittles, Hershey Kisses, 3 Musketeers, M & M's, marshmallow things, caramel, pretty much anything milk chocolate! PB & chocolate combined! Gummy ANYTHING, love sour patch kids and watermelon! I also ¥LOVE¥ orange slices!

I also like trail mixes, especially the sweet & salty ones, I have a weakness for sunflower seeds (I love the chocolate covered ones!), I also love sesame sticks! Soft cookies (choco chip, and sugar).

I love to try new things (as long as they do not contain any of my dislike flavors).



Anything licorice flavored, things with coconut, almonds, banana or coffee flavored candies, pretty easy to please when it comes to candy!

Comment: Thanks for such a lovely hummingbird card and note! I wish it were warmer here, just a tad. I've had ice on my windshield several days this week, which was a bit crazy. I just scored some awesome postcards of Japan lately, tucked in a package of various note cards at a thrift store. What a find! Thanks again for the note and see you in the mail sometime!

Love, love the envie of goodies you sent for the Pick 2 Tag from CPG!! Thank you so much for your awesome creations! The swap tags are lovely colorful and the map piece from our neck of the woods is especially a nice touch! Have I told you I love the ATCs?? The hot air balloon one is so brightly and texturely fun, but WOWZERS on the Yoshi!! I felt like I was looking at one of the games for him! What a great idea for bringing all the different patterns together for a more accurate visual feel for it. @.@ I will definitely keep it with our gaming collection of artwork. :D Thank you again and you stay warm over there, too! Have a great weekend! :)
