About Me

An eclectic crafter, mother of one beautiful daughter. I teach 7th grade Geography in English at a private Catholic school. I love to craft/create, cook, garden, listen to music, dance, walk, read and swap! :)

Favorite Crafts

~ Since my taste is eclectic, I am as much in love with all sorts of paper, ephemera, printables, journaling cards, etc. as I am with fabric, buttons, trims, felt, yarn, thread and all sorts of sewing notions. Paint, watercolors, stamps, washi tape, you name it! I love it all and try them all as often as I can. I wish were I live there was a Michaels, JoAn's, Tuesday Morning, ACMoore and the like, but no such luck :(

  • Misc. Biographies
  • The Chicken Soup for the Soul series
  • Neale Donald Walsch
  • Mitch Albom
  • Historical novels

Favorite Music

Classical - Vivaldi in particular New Age such as Enya Instrumental - Kenny G Some Country, Light Rock, Oldies and a wide variety of music in Spanish.

Favorite Crafts

  • I dream of learning how to sew properly
    • I am in love with felt and use it a lot in my crafts
    • I really enjoy embroidering and cross stitching
    • I very much like paper and enjoy making cards, altered tags, ATCs, Skinnies, Twinchies and Inchies
    • Would love to try my hand at Altered journals & Art journals
    • I have one done a couple of whimsy jars, dotee dolls and altered matchboxes.

Comment: I finally received your swap and I love it. I have received swaps from Mexico before and they have always seemed to be slow. So I always allow extra time before I start worrying about it being lost. Anyway thank you for all that you sent.
Comment: Hola!! Muchas gracias mi amiga!!

Comment: On April 9, which was a day after the mailing deadline, you told me that you had my package ready to go but were out of town and would mail it when you got back to town. It has been more than 20 days since then and you've signed up and been rated for other swaps though I haven't heard anything else from you. I'll rerate if I receive anything. --- I received this swap, postmarked May 15. Thank you Sara.
Response: I am terribly sorry to hear you did not get my envie. Indeed, we have had a very difficult month as my mother in law died unexpectedly and we were away for a couple of weeks. During that time I asked a co-worker to go into my studio to mail some envies for me - she claims she did it :( To top things off for more than 2 weeks I suffered from an intense bout of vertigo that had me flat on my back, out of work and unable to drive. Today is the first day I feel somewhat better and I drove to the post office to resend your swap envie, I do hope you get it soon but keep in mind I am mailing from Mexico :( Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Comment: I think this fox is so adorable! Thank You! Thank you for the great owl bookmark and the card you sent was cute too! ♥
Response: I'm glad to read you received your envie and you liked it! That's what swapping is all about! Thank you for the heart :)
Comment: This was definitely a fun swap!
Comment: I especially like the education one! Art, music, dance, etc. are all so important and yet they are kept for the well-off... Such a shame! One day I think education will be free for all and fit to meet people's needs!

image Easy Profile Comment #3 Hola, I enjoyed reading your profile. Under books you listed Robert Fulgrum. I loved his book, "Everything I Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten?" I love his writing style. I haven't heard his name used in a long while. I have 2 grown sons and always wanted a little girl. Perhaps I'll be blessed with a granddaughter:-) I have enjoyed being on Swapbot and meeting friends from all around the world such as yourself. Spring is sprung here but still a week of cool temps. I hope you are enjoying a welcome Spring! Blessings,

Comment & Quote - take 2

I am in my last semester of being a preschool teacher, I love teaching. I think it's one of the best jobs out there! I think Mitch Albom is a great author, my favourite book is "Tuesdays with Morrie," it made me cry!

“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays With Morrie
