About Me

Lover of bright color, (💚 is my favorite), slow stitching and embroidery, weaving (paper, fibers) paper crafts, mixed media art, art journaling, and DIY home projects. I am a Christian, carnivore, flower gardener, organizer, list maker, pen pal. My favorite medium is currently alcohol ink, but my gel printing plate with acrylic paint is a close second.

I enjoy my volunteer job of editing and really enjoy writing. I like to cook, so if you have a great recipe for cooking meat, please share! I am very interested in alternative health, and prefer to stay away from prescription medication. I believe our thoughts and emotions are far stronger than any Rx ever created. A merry heart does good like a medicine.

Favorite things include little houses, (I absolutely love them and have a rather large collection on my walls!) washi tape, mushrooms, flowers, trees, birds, butterflies, hearts, geometric shapes, patriotic symbols, quotes, Bible verses, silly or cheerful things, clean jokes for my grandkids, play on words, gelli prints, outside-the-box.

I don't have a die cutting machine, but like die cuts, especially botanicals. I like art journaling and am currently working in a handmade journal with just inspirational quotes and verses. I prefer hand made and unique to store bought embellishments.

You can see my style on my Instagram if you are interested. (Link above)

My granddaughter (11 yrs) is wild about anything llama and is a budding artist herself, so if you have something for Makayla, she and I would be delighted!

I am a sporadic but very reliable swapper, and send very soon after the partners are assigned.

Not wild about pictures of faces/people, vintage, grunge, loose glitter, religious icons, or creepy stuff. I have no use for scrapbooking paper, memo sheets or store bought note cards. I no longer make ATCs so I don't need any blanks.

Thanks for swapping with me!

Currently...

No one knows what the future holds, but sometimes we have a wakeup call that changes our priorities. I just had one of those November 11, 2022, so I may be MIA for awhile in the swapping world while I work at kicking this latest health issue. If you are the praying sort, and you feel prompted to pray for me, I am grateful.

Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for the swap. I love the way you decorated the file folder. I don’t think it is too much. Lol. I actually thought about using it to make fall journal cards. I’ll probably scan it first to make a digital background. I appreciate all the fall themed items you included in the folder. I love the poem. Fall is my favorite time of the year. Thanks for a nice swap. Take care and be safe!

Comment: Hi Tracy, Wow! I'm loving the scrap strips you made for this swap! Thank you♥️ The colors are interesting, as well as the patterns and various effects or methods you used. Very fun! I agree the alcohol inks are so cool. I've heard of Fodder Scool, but dont know a lot about it. I will be using these colorful strips in my creative journal. I'm totally crazy about the mail art on the envie! Very cool😍

Comment: Hello dear Tracy! I am simply amazed by everything you sent to fulfill this swap. That denim pocket is truly inspired, as is everything inside. I LOVE the little mixed-media notepad with the bright polka-dot tie--so cute. Many thanks for a wonderful swap--I'm so glad we did this private swap and hope to do many more in the future!

Comment: thank you for all the lovely journal cards!!! Like you I also made extra ones with the magazine pages. I especially liked the one with the houses, love the bright colors.The one with the cross was inspiring to me. I lost 4 loved ones this year and may make a page about living life to the fullest and put their names on the back of the card. Thanks for the great swap.

Comment: WOW! I feel so special! First of all, the envelope is LOVELY! It was such a joy to receive. Second, the poem! I LOVE IT! I put it straight up on my bulletin board. And third, the letter. I read it twice. :). Thank you so much for taking the time to make this so special.
Response: You're welcome. I am glad you enjoyed it. I had fun putting it together for you. 😊

Comment: Yowza Batgirl! My file folder pocket turned mailing pouch is FABULOUS!!!! Didn’t even want to slit the tape to open it. It now holds prize of place on my work station where I can not only admire it const but can also pick it up and fondle it as often as I choose. The handmade PC comes in a close second and is also displayed right in front of me for inspiration. I rarely use greens and blues but you’ve given me true inspiration. The Twinkling H2O envelope and the yellow paint swatches on blue are almost as lovely as your eco-dyed paper, something I have yet to try. Love the printed labels from your artwork and your husband’s printed labels too. Appreciate the stickers, washi and of course the little yellow house. So much talent! Picture me swooning way over here in NC.
Response: What a delightful rating! I am so glad you liked it all.

Comment: I got you page yesterday, Tracy, but i was so busy visitig with my sister I didn't rate right away. Luckily I put it right where I would see it today. I love all the bright colors and handmade papers you used and feel especially lucky that you sent me a house! Many thanks for making this for me and for the lovely note! So very glad you are able to get into your beloved garden again and that the carnivore diet is working for you. I may be joining you on that as just keto isn't quite cutting it for me.

I made a batch of the caramel cookies yesterday and they were a big hit with our friends! Thank you again for sharing your favorite holiday memories along with that recipe. My husband said they taste more like a brownie than a cookie (which is his favorite thing) LOL!
