About Me

UPDATE, 10/31/19 Been MIA for a bit but Im back and ready to swap. I am also going to be hosting swaps under "Shabby in pink" group. Cant wait to get back into the grind!! If a swap is profile based, I will always try to get as close as possible to my partners likes in what I send. I really enjoy swap-Bot and have really enjoyed meeting the friends that I have met on here and I take great pride in sending off swaps that I would love to receive!

I am a 50 year old Mom to a 24 yr. old Police Officer Son. He is my only baby and he is the world to me. I am one proud mama!

My Hobbies- I love to go to Garage sales and also to swap meets/flea markets. I find some of the best crafting supplies at garage sales or if I am looking for something to use in my altered art, I hit the flea market. I am an all around paper crafter from scrapbooking to card making . I also enjoy altering items like muffin tins, altoid tins,starbucks frap bottles, cigar boxes, etc. I love to swap and will spend alot of time on my swaps just to make sure my swap partner is happy with his/her swap item or items.

One last thing,

If you ever want to do a private swap of any kind, Please drop me a line. I love love love to swap and will do whatever I can to make my swap partner Happy! So Please, message me so we can do a private swap!

Favorite Crafts

So, The list of crafts that keep me in my craft room to all hrs. of the night are Card making,Scrapbooking layouts,Creating mini albums,art journaling,chunky charms, I like to alter items, ie: cigar boxes,wood boxes,frames,etc. I think I got it all, Oh, I do also try to sew but only on my paper crafts.
Pink, I love anything pink. I also love to swap, Some of my fave swaps are ATC's, altered items,hand made cards,hand made embellishments and Pocket Letters, well the list can go on and on. If you ever want to swap, drop me a line. I also could really use Police paper items for my sons scrapbook. It is really limited out there on what you can find for Police items.

Favorite Television

I am a reality show junkie. Everything from American Idol to Masterchef to Bridezillas. TLC is my faveriot channel and I think I have my TV on that channel 90% of the time. Thankfully we have more than 1 TV in the house! Some other shows I currently watch are Hawaii 50,housewives of New Jersey,Beverly hills,OC and sometimes New York. I am also a fan of Gold Rush. Bravo and TLC are my go to stations.

Color combinations

My favoriot color is Pink and my fave combinations are Pink/Black Teal,turquoise

Favorite Music

I love all sorts of genres of music. I spent my teenage years in the 80's so I love all 80's music. I am a heavy metal/hard rock kinda girl! My faveriot band is Y & T my 2nd. fave band is The Scorpions. I can listen to those bands 24/7. I do alot of Concert(rock) scrapbook layouts so any rock and roll ephemera, I would love!!

My Likes

I love little odds and ends that are girlie and fun to use in my crafting., Anything scrapbook/card making related is great. I am the total paper Hoarder.My fave brands are Prima,Teresa Collins,Echo Park/carte bella I do however prefer quality over quantity!!! I love the Shabby Chic style. I love Bling in any and all colors. Even vintage costume jewelry is great.I enjoy making chunky charms and mini albums are a fave of mine as well. I am a Bath & Body works and Victorias secret & Lush junkie. I just found the world of Bath Bombs from Lush and they are amazing!!!


I am going to sound extremely picky but, Here goes, Dislikes- This isnt so much dis likes but what I dont need any more of or what i will not use.NO STICKERS, I cannot emphasize enough, I have 1000's of stickers and I would really hate for you to send me more only to not use them. Eyelets and brads(I have tons and tons) . I don't need anymore buttons or ribbon or fibers. I also will not use any baby items(ie: stickers,papers and such) My baby is 23 so no need for the stuff. Please no Asian themed items, now I know Hello Kitty or Sanrio are Asia based products but other than that, I will not/do not use anything Asian themed. Also, This is a big one, Whenever I send off my swaps, I put a lot into them and I definitely make them something that I would want to receive thus, my point being, If you are involved in a swap and it entails purchasing items(NOT $1.00 STORE ITEMS) There are swaps for that. Dont fill up a box with $ store items and call it good. It took me a long time to come to this realization but I was getting so much of that stuff that I really couldn't use it.. I love to swap and nothing bums me out more than getting items that I will not use or are not of the quality that even the $ store makes them look good, I know it is kind of harsh but in the short time that I have been on swap bot I have had swaps that although they meet the criteria(the bare minimum) there was no thought at all put into them and thats why we swap, right? So, I think that is it for the icky part( I hate having to sound like a meanie) but I just want swaps to be fun for all and it just to be a great experience for me and for my partner!!
