About Me

My life thus far... I am an eclectic soul with much love for my family and unending love for my daughter who was diagnosed on the Autism spectrum at an early age. I support those with disabilities and the desire for our society to be more accepting of their conditions. Human behavior intrigues me and I enjoy learning new techniques and curriculum in the education field.

I am extremely dedicated to friends, family, paper crafts, and my faith.

I have one fur baby. We are in heaven with our sweet Oreo, who is a bischonpoo. She’s extremely loving with a bit of sass.


My current craft trends are junk, collage art, and flow journals. I recently learned about handmade book binding using the Coptic technique and pamphlet stitch. I also know how to use wires, sewing, saddle stitching, perfect binding and the screw post method.

I’m addicted to flow and junk journals and seeking swap partners. Please send me a PM if interested.

I love Disney at Christmas and my birthday's which are my usual times I visit. Next year it will be Halloween and aiming to reserve for Tokyo. Eeeek!

One of my fave places to go to is New Orleans because I adore Cajun food and listening to Jazz.

Also a beach lover! Turks and Caicos, Aruba, and Pinel Island are my faves but settle for Myrtle. The feel of sand on my toes is heaven! Prayers for all those affected by Irma.

Music is a huge range from 80's, Jazz, Pop, Rock, ALternative, holiday, Christian, gospel, and Blues.

Favorite Television: Killing Eve, Schitt’s Creek, Doctor Foster, Chopped, Younger, Power, oh wow! That's a lot of TV!

Books: I read fiction and non fiction.

I bought an Instapot two years ago and learning Paleo or Vegan dishes that are tasty and fast.

I bought an espresso machine because I hate weak coffee. Bye-bye Keurig! Love my espresso beans!

Avoiding carbs and sweets.

I am trying essential oils for different things now. Mostly facial use at this time. I started with coconut oil, then Bioessence and doterra for various things. Now I am addicted to Rosehip oil. Share if you are knowledgeable about this!

I pledge to rate!

I strive to rate my swaps and hope those receiving mine will too! I always send my swaps on time and enjoy sending happy mail all over the world. If you would like a private swap, please PM me. :)

Also, my motto is be nice or just don’t swap.

I love to read my partners profiles and discover about them when I send a swap. I take pride in what I send out. If for some reason you don’t receive from me, please let me know and I will resend. Case in point... I recently had a swap from last year finally arrive in July. Crazy!
