About Me

I joined Swap-Bot for the joy of crafting for others. I put a lot of thought and effort into my swaps with the hope it brings you the same joy I get from putting crafty things together for you. I read your profile and take notes in a journal so I can keep track of things to send you that are specifically related to your likes. I love to send happy mail that lifts your spirits and brightens your day.

I'm a crafter, mom of adult identical twin daughters and I've been married a very long time. I have a little rescue dog, my husband has a little dog and we have 2 grandoggers. So if you're allergic to pets, we might not be a good match. We live in a non-smoking home, so, yay for that!


-I loved visiting England! I now am obsessed with Big Ben and all of England. One day I hope to go back and stay in Bath.

-Colors: I love them all, pink, purple, mermaid blues and greens, teal, red, pastels, just about anything goes, really.

-I like the beach/ocean, flora and fauna, butterflies, birds, dogs, animals, elephants, mermaids, Julie Nutting paper dolls, Art Impressions stamps, Stamping Bella, the mild side of steampunk, girly, eclectic and quirky stuff.

-I'm a big fan of Julie Nutting paper dolls by Prima and have quite a large collection of the stamps and dies. I was lucky enough to take a couple of in-person classes with Julie Nutting!

-I collect old sewing buttons, hankies, books, and craft supplies, of course.

-I'm nerdy and eclectic, and I like for things to bring me happiness and joy.


-I don't care to receive anything edible. I don't like coffee, not even the smell of it (I love my tea, though). I'm not big on perfumey things like scented candles, bath bombs or other items with strong odors.

-I don't really care for the latest unicorn craze, things on the violent side of creepy, and anything having to do with horoscopes, ouija boards or tarot cards.

Favorite Crafts

I am currently obsessed with learning about mixed media, watercoloring and card-making.

I'm learning how to use the Gelli Plate and Gel Press for monoprinting.

I can crochet, but I rarely do.

As with other crafters, I have tons of supplies. I also have die cutters, dies, embossing folders, and lots of cling and rubber stamps. Stickers you say? I have so, so many.

My daughters and I were lucky enough to take an in-person class from Tim Holtz (eep!); we love all of his stuff and his style.


-Tim Holtz's On-line Creative Chemistry 101/102/103 classes

-Yellow Daisy Art's Index Card A Day (ICAD), June 1-July 31, 61 days of arting.

-I am always swapping with someone via Instagram, here or Facebook, so it's on-going.


lmacdavis93 rated for ACT: Double Coins on Oct 28, 2018
Comment: Dear Dorothy, If I could give you a 10 rating I would! Your double coins are so cute. Love the sparkly purple backgrounds and the little witches are wonderful - you have colored them perfectly. They really are brilliant. And I am overwhelmed by all the goodies you sent me! So much fun stuff. Love the vintage list - I have a bunch of vintage papers and ledgers and I just love them. And like you I will buy one not knowing exactly what I might do with it but it's just fun to have. I've never seen anything like the fine art squares either, and I can't believe all the die cuts you made me! They are all so great, but I really love the one that looks like trees - it's amazing! Thanks for a wonderful swap and for you lovely letter that you enclosed as well. Hope we are partners again sometime soon!
Response: Oh, my goodness! Thank you for the wonderful things you said and for giving me a heart. "Brilliant," wow, no one has ever said that about my art. And saying you hope we partner up again really made my day, thanks so much!

Comment: Thank you soo much! I love the bookmark that you made. It's gorgeous. I really love every thing. You are too kind. The bookmark is way to nice to put in a book yet though. I have a ribbon board with favorites. It must go there so I can look at it. I see absolutely no flaws! It is just the way it's supposed to be! I love the little envelope too! More then a smile, I'm still grinning!
Response: Gosh, I'm so tickled that you like it so much! I knew there was someone out there I was supposed to make it for, and I'm glad it was you. Thank you for the heart, day made.

Thank you for the absolutely darling twinchies you sent my way. In such a cute handmade card, no less. My mum's a card maker and I am always so impressed by people's ability to do so, I just have never been able to get into it.
