About Me

My name is Jess. I Live in Va with my awesome 9yo son Aiden, wonderful boyfriend Rob and our newest arrival in February our beautiful daughter Persephonie June.

I can't spell and I accept this.

I manage an arboist supply shop-selling chainswas and gear for tree cimbers. Kinda fell into it-I knew nothing about this industry when I started but I love it now.

I absolutly love swapping!! Because of it I have now made my first greeting cards, my first atc, and my first whimsy jar!!(and a few new obsessions..lol)I have also just discovered pocket letters and I'm hooked! if anyone wants to swap pl's let me know!

we are gamers! I recently just got a PS4 and we got Nintendo new 3-ds' for all of us, we have been having a lot of fun with those as a family. I have been hooked on Mortal Kombat X lately.....that's mommy's and daddy's me time cuz its a little to violent for my son.

I'm a huge dork and love all things geeky!

our family is into RC trucks,gets us out side and moving around. We have been having a blast doing it.

I am a pretty crafty person and I looooove make things. Dose'nt really matter what it is, as long as I am being creative I am happy. I am also a pack rat, I love collecting "stuff" anything I think is fun,pretty,interesting or if I can use it in a project it ends up at my house.

I am also a planner newbie now!!

Im so glad I found this site and I can't wait to start swapping. Im so excited to start adding more to my collection and sharring it with others as well!

Favorite Crafts

I like just about any craft.my current obsession is crocheting-been doing it about 3 years now and pocket letters!!! I love making all sorts of stuff..As far as favorites, just about any glass craft. I use to make glass beads, mosaics, and stained glass. I am fascinated by all the different thing glass can do, it is an amazing medium and one sadley I have no room to work with as of late:!! I also have gotten really in to making ATCs as well.In addition I love sewing, drawing,macrame, painting, scapbooking and whatever else happens to tickle my fancy at any given time. It really just depends on my mood. I will try anything I can get my hands on. Other things I do when the mood strikes me range anywhere from jewlery making to knitting , candle and soap making, pottery and clay........this list could go on forever.

Favorite Music

I like all kinds of music, I can listen to just about anything. Im really into nerdcore right now,mc chris, Beatles,she & him, Ani Difranco, Jack Johnson, sublime, Brett Dennon, incubus,atmosphere, beck,G love,OCMS,queen,tom petty,train,UB40.....there is a lot more but this is what I came to mind right off the bat.

Favorite Movies

I love almost any guy Ritchie movie, marvel/superhero movies, zombie movies-28 day later,zombie land,residant evil movies,fido,Star wars, LOtR and Hobbit movies.Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy,serenity,Im a huge fan of all the oceans movies, pirates movies, Any Tim burton movie!!, pulp fiction, I like comedies, get him to the greek, the hangover, pinapple express.......etc.All time favorite movies though are hands down princess bride and snatch. I don't like horror movies, im a big chicken and I get way to scared if I watch them. I also dont care for westerns or old time movies either.

Favorite Television

I don't have cable or sat right now so I watch a lot of movies and tv on DVD.....my current obsession is walking dead .I love anything sci-fi especially firefly!! we really love adventure time in my house too.also game of thrones, and orange is the new black.

I have really enjoyed swapping here and I strive for a 5 and a heart with every swap I send!! If for some reason you do not recive or feel I didnt meet the requirments of a swap please let me know before rating and i will do what i can to fix it!!

I promise to always send on time, never flake, and alway rate!!(and if you have not received a rating from me let me know,it would not be intentional-I try my best to keep up but im a busy mom with a new baby.

I am a perfectionest and would never send out something i felt wasnt the best I could do and i dont think it is to much to ask that my partners do the same, not only for me but for anyone they are sending a swap too!!!

happy swapping!

Comment: Everything was beautiful! I just loved some of the vintage notions you sent to inspire me and the box is gorgeous and will perfectly match my craft room. Thank you for the lovely story behind the inspiration box as well - I enjoyed it and will tie some teal ribbon on those old scissors and hang them up for display.

Comment: What a great card! I love it, thanks. You don't often see kids on a steampunk card, but they work on it very well, with their straight-laced faces, lol. Did you get the balloon on using the tape transfer method?
Response: I'm glad you liked it and yes I did use the packing tape transfer method-the balloon image came out of an old French physics book I found at an antique shop for $1.00, I didn't get all of the paper off of it though :( there is still some showing.
