I have been crafting since my mom taught me. I love to read, scrapbook, make cards, anything to do with paper, sorta have an addiction to paper, I love to paint watercolor and do art journaling, samples of my work is on my instagram page. I am also a runner, half marathons my fav.

I have been KETOGENIC for four years now, best thing for my health I have ever done..

POSTCARDS - I prefer STORE bought and NAKED, most handmade ones i have recvd were poorly made. :(.. Please no ad, or digital (ie zazzle etc) thanks MY FAV part of the PC is the stamp and the postmark... PLEASE try to use a regular stamp instead of the print outs from the Post office.. Hearts for stamps!!!!

Favorite POSTCARD styles: non touristy pcs i like: vintage, BLACK AND WHITE all time fav..., artsy , lighthouse, just about any non touristy will be my fav..

touristy pcs i like: (although i prefer non touristy) lighthouses, vintage style

I love anything vintage, really old, or made to look old.

I watercolor, been taking classes for about 10 years. I’m no longer taking classes as I’ve moved away from my lovely teacher. Sad 😢

Favorite Movies and Music

I love comedies, except the vulgar ones, Most action, and most all summer blockbusters!!

Ive updated my music lately... I got bored with the top 40 and the radio...so I have gone to listening to Pandora and Spotify again. I have a couple I love, radiohead, adele, and coldplay.

Favorite Television

I love my DVR, so this list could get really long, I like most TV except daytime stuff. Survivor, The good Doctor, This is us, bachelor

Favorite Crafts

As I said before, if its has paper to do with it, i love it, I have been scrapbooking for over 20 years, But seriously addicted to it in the last 12.

I have made custom items for others. Most i make paper rick rack for cards and scrapbooking layouts. All multicolored. I also make vintage recipe albums from paper bags, they are really full and chunky(2010-2015).

SINCE I do have a scrapbooking paper addiction, I thought I would add a list of my favorite paper companies, in no particular order, of course, MME, Basic Grey,Graphic 45, Bo Bunny, Websters, Bazzill, 7 Gypsies, October Afternoon, Crate paper, Prima, AND anything TIM HOLTZ


No adult themes or nudity, vulgar or in poor taste. Lets keep the swaps classy!!! Coffee or tea.


Zentangle ATC's, ANY ATC's with doodling on them.

anything with a scent, i am sensitive to smells, Prefer items from smoke free environment. no food in the mail, have children that have allergies.

folk arts, country style not my thing!

Dont like cats, chrubs or religious items, so if you have a cat with wings holding a cross, you may want to pass that on to the next person, :) contact me at my email [email protected]
