About Me

I give hearts - why? Because in a world full of people judging, criticizing, thumbs up/down, like/disliking everything, if someone took the time out of their day to email, type, send a letter, walk to the mailbox, buy a stamp, make a card, etc... just to brighten my day, then I am grateful because nobody has to do anything they don't want to do.

So thanks in advance for giving of YOUR TIME, spending YOUR money to mail me your special creations. You didn't have to share so that speaks volumes of your character - in my humble opinion.

I love to craft and I'm a newbie to crafting in general. I started watching YouTube videos for ideas and learned about craft swaps...which led to this website.

A big cup of Tea-favorites are Tetley, PG tips, (black tea), green tea, ginseng, oolong, peppermint, ginger and white tea. But I will try anything once or thrice (lol).

Volleyball & bowling are my fav sports.

I enjoy the symbolism of butterflies, yin yang, dandelions and kanji.
