About Me

I’ve been swapping in crafts related items for over 15 years, yes online!! Probably before most of you even knew about the internet! I'm so glad that I've finally found Swap-Bot. I will always rate, I believe it rude not to, so please, please do the same for me.

My passions include photography and graphic design. I also enjoy scrapbooking, card making, painting, jewelry making, sewing, and pretty much any other craft you can think of! I have 23 and 16 year old boys. I am engaged and my fiance’ has a 5 year old boy. So I am surrounded by guys. So, I do take refuge in some of my girly things but I definitely tend to like more sophisticated-looking things rather than little girl things. I do like feminine things too though, like pink and sparkles. But anyway, I also enjoy dirtbiking and four-wheeling with the boys. I also enjoy riding my own motorcycle, nothing fancy, but all I can afford and I love my 94 Honda Shadow VLX.

I do bookkeeping, payroll, consulting, and taxes for small businesses. I keep my rates reasonable and like to help out the other entreprenuers of this world! I am also going to school and planning on getting my CPA soon!

Collections & Likes

I've grown up going to auctions, flea markets, and antique stores. Even though, I do like the modern decorating style with sleek, clean lines and blacks. I collect wine corks and unusual bottle caps. I use any frames 11x14 or larger for my photography work, even if they are not in good shape, I can paint them! I tend to accumulate anything to do with art and crafts, like rubber stamps, rub-ons and papers. (I prefer not to get stickers as I really don't use them) I like candy, clay, soap molds.

I especially like old, antique or unique papers, journals, accounting papers, or old labels, beer or pop bottle caps, tags, prayer cards, rosaries, charms or little metal doodads.

I specifically collect old ledger books/pages - these are the old accounting journals that were kept by hand before we had computers!

Oh yeah, old or pretty hair pins or clips! I do love my accessories – scarves (LOVE scarves), jewelry, belts, and such! I guess this is where the girly, artsy side of me really comes out!

I love coffee, any kind, I love it all!

I am trying to watch my weight so I love the 100 calorie snack packs, nuts, crunchy granola bars and that type of thing!

My traditional favorite color is dark purple. However, lately I am really into the black and white/cream with or without a touch of either red or pink! My new love is the pink and brown combinations!

Also, I would TOTALLY Love to receive your handmade items!

The littlest guy in my life wants anything to do with Monster Trucks!!

I need more tea & coffee! I love the fruity teas and the black teas and flavored coffees the most!

Favorite Music

I love it all. I am a 70s and 80s girl at heart, but I like classical, big band, jazz, country, oldies, Christian, soft rock, hard rock, hip hop, you name it! I love mixes with a bit of it all!

Favorite Movies

Anything romantic or comedy! I will not watch anything scary. All-time favorites are Flashdance and Bed of Roses. All of the guys in my life (and I) love the Fast and the Furious series - Go Vin!! My newest favorite is Seven Pounds.


Please no sweets full of calories, as I am trying to lose weight. I don't really care for Kawaii and Stuffies - Just don't "get it"... Not really into postcards or ATC's either. I’m really not picky, there is not much that I don't like and I'm easy going. Also, if I happen to join something that contradicts these things than obviously, just ignore these statements!

Favorite Crafts

Please see above info.... I love it all!! Especially papercrafts, scrapbooking, digital arts, photography, jewelry, and painting. I am not very interested in the needle arts any more though. I am in need of items for making charms - I am looking for old metal things, whatever might look cool added to a pendent or charm for a unique artsy look and any little colored glass items. I also make wine!

Handmade Items

If you have a special thing that you make and it's creative, quality, artsy, or whatever, I would love to receive it! Time and effort are worth more than money spent in my opinion!

I haven't updated my website in a long time so I have a ton of new stuff and most of what is on there is for clients and not my art. But, If you are interested in swapping, I can get you some more to choose from.

If you want to do a one on one swap for your art let me know.

I would LOVE>>>

Monster Jam DVD, Scone Pan, Caldrea Lotion or Soaps in White Tea Scent or similar, Black mascara, Black liquid eyeliner, Creamy tan eyeshadows, Mary Kay Bella Blara or Belara Perfume, Vegetable Peeler, Running clock/band, Vacuum Sealer Bags/Rolls, Prince or Johnny Cash music (burned is fine!), Clear Glass Paperweights, Jewelry/charm "frames", Diamond Glaze, Glass beads, metal beads, polymer clay, Zutter Wires, Silhouette Accessories, Board Game-Zobmondo!!-Would You Rather?, Rubber stamps of "happy" animals-like ones that are excitedly jumping up and down-find me tigger and I will love you forever!, A glue stamp pad, small mister/spray bottles, matching rubber stamp and punch-like a butterfly or dragonfly, spanish children's book (I'm trying to learn spanish), Rubber stamp from stampington arts-P2225 The Gase by Lynne Perrella, Something that you are really good at making!!!!


I love color!! Any color really, but here are my faves.... My office is cream and black (swirls, etc.).... My kitchen is black and dark red, with small touches of fall colors.... I love autumn colors... oranges, rust, tan, dark red, browns ...... I am recently loving warm colors.... yellow, oranges, reds... Colors that say "happy"... Polka Dots say "happy" to me! I like to wear black, blue, dark colors, bright colors, not a lot of pastel but you never know ... I am an experimenter!

katelynlovesyou rated for Newbie Hair Accessory Swap on Dec 8, 2009
Comment: Thank you. I'm glad you returned my message but I wish you had contacted me instead of the other way around.I do like the headband but it has makeup on it and several stains. The hair clip was also missing a prong and it was sticky with hair spray. Thank you for the pony holders and elastic headbands. The swap was late but it met the swap requirements.
Response: Sorry I didn't realize that about the extras. I would have washed them or not included them.

Hi Jeanne- I was just wondering if you got the CD and DVD i sent for the CVC/CD Swap? It's been a couple of weeks since I sent but the USPS isn't letting me track it for some reason...
