About Me and My Likes

I am a bookkeeper by day and a crafter by night. Crafts made from textiles if my first love. My sewing machine is never used for traditional sewing...I like to sew items to paper for a unique look.

I have two teenage children, three dogs, wonderful parents, and I am blessed with a fabulous job.

Several years ago I started my Etsy store. The experience has been wonderful and many of my customers are also friends. The best of all worlds.

Things I do NOT LIKE: Foam Cutouts Nothing Modern or Way Out There

Dreaming of Mountains

I live in the suburbs of Houston, TX, and dream of moving to the mountains. I will always research where my swap-bot partner lives. It is nice to mentally escape my surroundings. I have lived in the Houston area all of my life.


I love textiles!!!! Any sort of sewing notions, vintage or new. I love online auctions!!! When I find vintage quilts, vintage fabrics, notions, ephemera, I got crazy....probably too crazy!!!!

I started collecting Vintage Pincushions. Love Them!

Comment: Lol, the first time ever I heard someone having a squirrel as pet. Seems like he's definitely best buddies with your father. ^_^ And then those three adorable doggies. I love dogs! I love most animals, but my hubby prefers cats. I really miss dogs they are so loyal and seek affection even when they aren't hungry. In contrast to my cats. XD Thanks for sharing.
