About Me

My name is Beth and I live in a small river town in Alabama.(Just recently moved to Tennessee, but still an Alabama girl at heart!) I am a retired first grade teacher and piano teacher. I enjoy classical music and Van Gogh art. Bach, Chopin, Mozart, and Schumann are some of my most favorite composers,. I enjoy reading books that have historical value, books about early English kings and queens, and books that challenge me to think about why I believe what I believe. Vintage jewelry, Christmas ornaments, and old buttons are facinating to me. I love vintage lace and trims. I enjoy crafting, making ATC's, making matchboxes, sewing, making diorama Christmas ornaments, scrapbooking, and papercrafting. Rudolph is my all time favorite Christmas character. My favorite colors are the jewel tones. I feel that I should have lived in another age, this one gets to fast sometimes. I have 5 precious children and a wonderful husband. I also have 2 precious grandsons and granddaughter. We have a cutey Yorkie named Tessa.

About Me

I will honor my swaps and will do work that I am proud to send and not just good enough to get by. I do not have a blog. I do not consider myself savvy enough on the computer to do that. I do enjoy personal snail mail and email contact. I just love to craft and create and share in the experience with others. I love to please and for people to be happy with my work. I do not have to have extras to rate a heart. I do love work that has been thought out, cut evenly, neatly done and not just thrown together for the sake of a swap.

About Me

My likes are.....Vintage lChristmas items~ Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer items~retro Christmas items ~handmade items~ vintage pins/brooches~sheep~Christmas dioramas~Halloween dioramas~vintage Halloween items~vintage buttons~ATC's~Graphic 45 Scrapbooking papers~ decorated matchboxes~ The colors I like are jewel toned colors~ I love raspberries and craft items made with fabric adorned with raspberries~ and the shabby chic look.

My dislikes are...Coloring books....butterflies~ the color white~ loud music~ barking dogs~ rude people~ vacuuming~ hard candy~ going to the dentist~ anchovies~ also another thing I do not care for are the vintage photos of children or women~Something about them sort of make me feel creepy. I normally will not sign up for a swap if they are featured..Don't mean to be picky....

Comment: Thank you for the lovely needle book and all the treats you tucked in for me (especially the scissors! ♥ Also, I really needed a tape measure). I love how you made and incorporated the pretty handkerchief pincushion with the rose. The brooch closure is beautiful, the vintage lace and trim are very sweet, and I'm delighted by the cross-stitched doily you sewed on the cover. Thank you for putting such time and care into this for me, and for sharing your process. A wonderful gift! ♥

Comment: Thank you so much for the adorable bell elves! They are too cute to put away until Christmas, but since it isn't even Halloween yet, I guess I should. =) Thank you for the cool extras too! xo

Comment: I love your spool ornament! I love how it's all put together. Are the spools actual vintage sewing spools? One of them has the Talon Mero... Sewing Colorfast label. If it is, that makes it even cooler! Still awesome either way though =D Thank you so much! Additional thank you for the Hufflepuff button. I'm slowly growing my collection (Puff stuff is harder to find).
Response: Yes, the spools are vintage! From my moms sewing drawer! Glad you like it! It was fun to make!! Smiles

Comment: Hi again Beth! How clever to use the pages you removed as your base! You decorated everything beautifully and I love the little tag spots. I'm so intrigued by that piece of gold paper you used in this signature--really beautiful. I'm also crazy for the rosy red envie with the scalloped edge and all the lovely papers you included. Thanks so much for creating a great 1st signature for my JJ!

Comment: Beth, I LOVE this JJ! The idea of a 'happy everything' journal is such fun. You chose such fun fabrics and your embellishments are lovely--especially those front dangles--I'm in LOVE with those! Really clever to create pockets--I would never have thought of that. Your work is beautiful. Thank you for joining and for making something so special for me--I will think of you as I use it!

Comment: Thank you so much for this beautiful piece! I love the clean lines, simplicity, and fantastic use of texture!
Response: Thank you for the kind words and heart. Sometimes less is more and I don't like piling on embellishments just to do it. Proportion and texture is important to me. Thanks again for your kind words

Comment: Beth: I got the most wonderful package in the mail from you yesterday! Just the way you had it all packaged so prettily - I hated to open each package. But you sent me the most amazing shabby chic items and I love that you lined the box with pattern paper! What a clever idea to make an ATC kit! And the vintage buttons and pin are wonderful. Love the fabric heart and the wooden spool - just so many treasures. I've never done one of these swaps before and it was really fun to go through my own stash and pick out things to include. Thanks for a really fun swap!
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words and heart rating!! So glad you liked everything!!
