  • I've added a profile on FACEBOOK: Crafty SisterLocs for all of my Crafting Friends. STILL searching for the perfect swap to join.

MY THEME SONG: My Soul Has Been Anchored

UPDATE ao Feb 1st, 2019 - HAPPY NEW YEAR



I think I'm back. I finally moved back to Florida from Minnesota in 2014 with my Job. I hope to start swaping again very soon.

I found a house big enough to hold all of my crafting supplies and although my glues and gues are all hardened and worthless, thank Gawd for a Michael's Craft Store that is near by..

Beadeful aka Stefeni

My fairy is called Feather Snowfrost.

  • She is a cleansing force and a peace-bringer.

  • She lives in high places where the clouds meet the earth.

  • She is only seen during the first snow of winter.

  • She wears pale blue like the sky.

  • She has delicate pale blue wings like a cicada.

If you find one like her, it would make a perfectly heavenly gift.

I use to live to bead. Gosh I sure hope that I can get back into the swing of things easy.. I'm really into Altered Art. I think that that is my new passion. I'd lost my inspiration to do anything crafty, but hoping through some easy swaps, I can swiftly get it back. I'm still really into the rolled paper beads and have all of my old papers. Of course, I'll buy new and improved paper as well. In the meanwhile, here's an old set I made, I call these along with the matchbox carrier - "Sunflower Bee-d"


"Art is what's in the Heart-sch122708"


  • I HATE:

  • black licorice, UPDATE:



also - Rockyournose.etsy (I have nose piercings)


Seinfeld, CSI:Miami, Flintstones, Columbo (basically all of the 70s t.v. shows), The First 48 hrs, Paranormal State, Criminal Minds; Keeping Up Appearences (Gotta luv Hyacinth Bucket - pronounced - Bouquet) .


ALL Johnny Depp, Anything Viggo Mortensen (LOR/HOV), Meet the Parents, Team America, anything with Robert DeNiro, The Anchorman (It's so bad, it's good); Shaun of the Dead (it's so silly, it's something to watch if you need to laugh), Anything with Terrence Howard, The Mummy Series, anything Ben Stiller, Anything Josh Stewart


All Stephen King Novels (including the Bachman Series), Anne Rice (all), History, Beading, Altered Art books, A New Earth. A Course In Miracles; The Urantia Book



*If you haven't received your item within 7days of the tag, please PM me a reminder with your addy info, the GROUP, and name of TAG/WTA. It's really confusing without all the info or the Note.

I send all of my swaps before the mail by date. Please at least acknowledge you've received my package by rating. My swaps always meet minimum requirements, so even if you do not like it, you must rate at least a 5. The following list is a list of the NONE RATERS. If it's been over 30 days since the date I've sent to my partner and they still haven't rated me, they will be listed here:


About Me


I have decided that from this day (5/17/14) I will be mailing packages out once a week following the swaps sign up deadline. I work from home 3 days a week and some Saturday overtime and I still haven't found the Post Office that is near the new house I just moved into. Be not dismayed. I will find it if I have to go to the old one or take it into the office with me for mailing.

Thanks. B

Love the Tampa Bay Bucs (I grew up in Florida - so that comes naturally).

I love shopping at Michaels, Joanns, Walmart, CreateForLess.com, and Crafty Secrets.com.

There will be a monthly theme for 3 - 4 different types of swaps.

I am a comber of the Garage & Estate sales, Thrift Stores and more in search of a special piece of trash to turn into treasure.

tallysoma on Aug 11, 2009:

oh my gosh! i just got my package for the thrift store treasure hunters tag and it is amazing. thanks so much for the wonderful items. my husband says some of the buttons are from a WWII army uniform. his dad was in the war and helped liberate the concentration camps in germany. the buttons will hold a special place of honor since my father-in-law destroyed his uniform (out of anger) when his oldest son enlisted. once again...thanks so much

OnTheMove rated for (USA) Stuff My Stockings on Dec 6, 2009
Comment: Thanks so much. This was a wonderful package. Your was the first ATC I've seen I think and now I know I can do them too. And I love all the little thingd in the small bags. Thanks again and have a Merry Christmas! Peggy
Response: Peggy you are so very welcome. I call that ATC the UnATC, as it was suppose to be just a regular size card that happened to be the same size as an ATC, so you can call it an ATC if you want. The red and green ribbon and bling dots on the white of the boot are removable for reuse. Hope that you can use the other stuff too. Thanks for the rating and of course the heart. Have a Merry Holiday.
