About Me

Craft through the good,craft through the bad. 💕

I won't be hosting any swaps until I'm better or joining any. Hope to be back soon. 08/08/2018

  • Profile still a work in progress**

Please kindly note I have a Post Office Box and I check my box three times a week and I rate when I get home.

I live in one city and work in another, so you will at times see the postmark from another city. I drop stuff off on my way to work in the city I work in.

I've had a couple of questions regarding my "crafty budget" so I decided to put little more information on it here.

Why did I put myself on a crafty budget?

  1. I wanted to see how much of my "fun budget" I was spending on my craft supplies.
  2. My craft supplies piles were getting higher.
  3. I realized that if something happened to me, I did not want leave my family and my adult children to have to deal with that mess.

What has really worked for me to use up my supplies?

I looked at my piles of supplies and based on the piles I made rules that I would follow.

For example:

  1. Before I buy another washi tape, I have to use up three.
  2. Before I buy another paper stack, I have to use two.
  3. Never, ever, ever buy any more buttons. No, pictures will not be provided, lol.

This has made me more conscious of what I am actually buying. Just because it's on sale, it is not a bargain if I will never use it.

I have a tendency to hoard polka dot scrapbook papers. Why? Because I have always loved polka dots. I have been slowly using them this year and to my surprise my world has not fallen apart because of it.

Some of the paper items that I like making are:Greeting cards, ATC cards, Bookmarks, Scrapbooks, Note cards, Junk journals, Homemade Decor, Stationary, and love creating with paper in general.

I am currently working on making handmade cookbooks. If you have anything that might fit, let me know and maybe we can set up a private swap.

My favorite colors are: Pink, Mint, and Lavender * currently because I have my moods and sometimes I go through a blue phase lol

I love writing, painting, drawing, calligraphy, journaling and mix media. I just like to play with paper - what can I say?

I love flowers, butterflies, angels, inspirational quotes, turtles, dragonflies, owls, beach themes, and can keep going and going.

Love postcards from museums, waterfalls, flowers, animals, national parks, beaches, etc. especially Route66 postcards... I am planning a Route 66 - Sept 2019 Route 66 Road Trip.. so Excited!!

Love die cuts, stickers, samples of washi, embossed paper to make greeting cards, stamped images to make greeting cards, my favorite tea right now is Bigelow green tea with lemon.

Comment: thank you for the lovely card. I have been thinking of a route 66 vacation recently
Response: I going to buy a map this weekend and start "plotting" must see locations on the Route 66 and on my lighthouse vacation, I really want to do these and I think this will help me manifest them, if I start thinking of more exact destinations. :)

Comment: I don't think things that bring you much joy are silly at all. Like you, cleaning out my house and my craft stuff has brought me great joy.

Comment: Thank you so much for the slice of life you've sent me, Quiqui! It really brightened my day. The older I've gotten, the more I've realized how much family has meant to me -- or at least the family I have chosen. I do love Rod Stewart, but I don't know the song you speak of. I will have to check it out! Thank you for mentioning it, I love learning about new music. Have a great week! :)

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this; Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.
