About Me

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.

Last date I checked my post office: 10/15/2018

If I have not rated then I have not received. If we have 5 partners and I see four people except me, received the swap. I will definitely give you the benefit of the doubt that it got lost.

I always send my swaps. If you haven't received something from me, please let me know before rating so I can resend if needed. I do not flake.

If you find life all of a sudden is coming at you real fast, let me know, this is suppose to be fun.

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!!

I am totally collecting new, unused Route 66 Postcards now. Thank you so much for those of you who got me started!

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.

I agree with your swap idea, just not your potential idea on who to host. Not ready for that kind of stress yet!
