About Me

I am a very shy, 40 something, woman. I live in a small farming town and I really enjoy the country life. My passion is lightning photography but I love other crafts too and my favorites are cooking and tatting or shuttle lace (which is an old form of making handmade lace). I also enjoy rock hounding and hunting for pretty or unusual rocks. My favorite colors are blues, purples and reds. I love fantasy paintings and trinkets such as dragons and unicorns, (I really love dragons). I also love wolves and deer (buck mainly I love the horns) I also love to learn new craft skills and I love making items to give to new friends and old.

Favorite Crafts

I have a fondness for many crafts and I practice several. Jewelry making, tatting, sewing, crochet and painting. I love tatted, crocheted and knitted items and well anything handmade. It takes time and love to create from your heart and I love sharing that joy with others with my handmade items.

Favorite Items

I love tatting shuttles, handmade or otherwise, old or new, and being a tatter I do seem to collect a bit of thread. I use mainly size 20 crochet thread in many colors for my projects. I also love patterns for sewing or tatting, old patterns or new patterns, books of patterns, I have fun collecting them. You never know when a handmade stuffed animal or bookmark may come in handy to brighten someone's day. I really like old fashioned items and Native American crafts and artwork. I love pictures of Native American places and people.

Wish List

I'm pretty easy to please most of the time and I like a lot of different things but if I had to wish for something here are just a few items that I would wish for:

Tatting shuttles (old, new, used but in good working condition. I would really love a wooden one)

Tatting thread or crochet yarn (I use size 20 any color is fine by me)

Tatting or sewing patterns

Tatting or sewing supplies

Small dragon or unicorn figurines

Foreign money / coins and tea (really like the flavored black tea packs)

Anything handmade

Sewn, crocheted or knitted little stuffed animals or their patterns. (love handmade things)

Any small stuffed animal (really like penguins or dragons)

Key chains (would really like to get key chains from other countries, unique key chains and key chains from special places like national parks or landmarks.)

I like most postcards but I really like the ones that show off where people live or the ones from special locations that people like to visit like national parks and landmarks and I really really like old vintage ones and ones that have to do with the military. Old vintage military postcards would be awesome!!

I love stickers of all sizes.

I love bookmarks. I really like handmade or unique bookmarks.

I hope this helps for those swaps that require a profile based surprise.

Hi - I was looking for ornament swaps and found yours, and see that you are interested in bobbin lace. Do you already make bobbin lace or interested in beginning it? I took a class, probably 10 years ago now, and have all the supplies, but didn't keep up on it. I love it though! My MIL was very skilled at lace making, that is how I got into it.
