About Me

I am a married mom of two kids. My daughter is 20 and a hair stylist. My son is 18 years old and a senior in an online school. My husband and I have been married for 23 years. We got married at the Excalibur resort in Las Vegas.

We love to travel. Our favorite travel spot is Walt Disney World. We also love Las Vegas.

Crafts I used to do a long time ago: counted cross stitch, macramé hanging plant holders, latch hook rugs, painting on t-shirts and sweatshirts, adding lace to things, and then weaving my own baskets.

After many years, my mom taught me to crochet and knit. I still enjoy crocheting and collecting yarn.

Then there was scrapbooking and paper crafts. I love it all! I love spending hours looking at all the goodies. There are so many washi tapes, punches, paper pads, vintage stuff, stamps, stickers. Wow! Wow!

This led to dabbling in art journaling, ATCs, dying paper, and exploring all the different paints and mediums out there.

I have to admit, I am addicted to crafting!!!

Hi! I'm here to leave some love for the Profile Love ♥ Quick Swap. :)

I always loved sheet music - I don't collect it myself but I always found sheet music beautiful. And Little House on the Prairie was one of my favourites when I was younger - they just started showing it here again so I'm rewatching it when I get the chance! Lots of nostalgia there.

I hope you're having a great day!

Hello!!! This is for: "Read my Profile and Leave a nice Comment." What a lovely way to "meet" other swap-botters we may not have the pleasure of running across. You and I ... we see to have quite a lot in common!! I am a washi fiend myself ... one of my goals this year is to use what I have and not buy more, but it's soooo hard when there are new, beautiful rolls out there!! Most of my crafting is done with duct tape so I have loads of that also!! It's always so nice to see such a well filled out profile. If we are ever partnered for a swap, it'll be easy to put yours together!! Happy swapping!

Hi :) I am your partner for "Read my Profile and Leave a nice Comment".

I collect postcards too! I have a big collection. I need to find somewhere to store them though.

I love Doctor Who! Do you have a favourite Doctor? Mine is David Tennant, followed closely by Christopher Eccleston. What Doctor Who items do you have?

Red is my favourite colour too!!

Enjoy the holidays!

Hi Beth! I'm your partner in the "Read my Profile and Leave a nice Comment" swap. It's nice to meet you!

I am also a fan of Big Brother and Survivor. I'm the only one in my house who likes them though, so I have to take a lot of flack for it. I love older sitcoms as well...ones like The Brady Bunch, I Love Lucy, Laverne & Shirley, Bewitched, and The Facts of Life are a few of my favorites. However, my favorite show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. That is one thing we don't have in common...I love skulls and things with gothic or halloween themes.

I also love Tweety Bird. I have blonde hair and blue eyes and because of that Tweety Bird used to be one of my nicknames.

I hope this finds you weel, and I wish you happy holidays!
