About Me

Flaked on by: jackie love (aka jellibii) Swap: Lots-O-Mail Flower Swap, Aug 8, 2012

Updated: April 2017

NOTE: Sometimes my items may go out a day or two late. I try to get them out early, but that is not always possible. I hope this is not a problem, please do not punish me for just one or two days. I will ALWAYS message/e-mail my swap partner if I am going to be late. Thanks in advance. I have a whole list of health issues that I have been dealing with for 23 years. Crafting is what keeps me going.


I like unusual items and unusual art. My all time favorite color is PURPLE, any shade or hue, and I also like Lime Green, Fushia.....but HATE, absolutely hate the color BLUE!!!!!

I enjoy receiving mail whether it be a postcard or letter, or a box of goodies. I will find a use for it in my art. Just don't like receiving those bills!!!!

I have two wonderful Grandsons that are a big part of my life. And I have two wonderful dog children: Latte' (Pappillon) is my 13 yr old girl and Java (Chihuahua) is 5 yr old girl.

I have an addictive personality and I have become addicted to swapping and love preparing my packages to send out with the hopes that my partner enjoys it. I am also addicted to eBay, love shopping there.

Favorite Numbers: 12, 15 and 66.

Favorite Scents: Vanilla and Gardenia.

Favorite Flavors: Coffee and Vanilla.

Favorite Foods: Chinese, Pizza and Desserts (I have a sweet tooth)!

Favorite Drinks: Coffee (any kind or style), Dr. Pepper.

Favorite Perfumes: White Shoulders and Poison

I love art and craft books and want to get more altered art books, art journal books and the like. Trying to build my art/craft book library.

And I live in Southern Illinois, USA

Favorite Music

easy listening, instrumental (flutes, pipes, piano, etc), top 40. Just about any kind of music is fine with me as long as I have music in my life.

Favorite Movies

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original movie)

Mr. Magoriums Wonder Emporium

Cats-The Broadway Show

I like true stories, comedies, love stories. But dis-like horror films (they are a waste of my time)

Favorite Television


any of the Tiny House shows


The Good Doctor

This is Us

Big Bang Theory

Two Broke Girls

Favorite Crafts

rubber stamping

paper arts of all kinds

polymer clay

bead weaving


scrap booking

I also sew, embroidery, needle felting, and crochet

And recently began making dog sculptures from recycled items.


Things I DISLIKE or would NOT like to receive:


BLUE, anything, I hate (and I don't use that word) the color with a passion

anything Disney or Pixar

Memo pad/ sticky notes (I have more than I need)

Sport related

Chocolate (allergic to it)

Religious related

Anything with a SNAKE on it, I am petrified by snakes, even a picture of them.

Horror themed items

Comment: "Postcard. Do not attempt to open" Hahahaha - great stamp! I love junk journals! I make simple notebooks out of good paper (fountain pen friendly!) with cereal box covers. I like to stitch the bindings on my sewing machine.
Response: Glad you liked it.
