About Me

I am a wife and the mother of three kids that are grown now. I work full-time as a medical transcriptionist. I enjoy crafting, reading, camping and spending time with family and friends. Some of my favorite times are spent crafting with my BFF and/or shopping for craft supplies! I am a member of a card making club that meets monthly to make cards. I am a Christian and believe in God and in my Savior Jesus Christ. Although we all have different beliefs, I believe that we can respect each other and get along with each other.

I enjoy at least a few songs from all music genres, but I would say my favorite is that awesome 80's music!

I love to read. One of my favorite authors is Amy Harmon. If you haven't had a chance to read anything she has written, you are missing out and need to give her books a try!

The only movies I don't enjoy are horror movies; otherwise, I am up for a good movie!

I am a TV junkie! I have a favorite show for every day of the week and love to use my DVR! I usually craft while watching one of my shows!

My favorite craft is card making. I send most of my cards at Christmas and enjoy making and sending Christmas cards. I enjoy crafting and being creative. I like to try new techniques. My newest craft hobby is bookfolding which I have really enjoyed. It looks harder than it is, although it is time consuming. I also enjoy doing ATC's, inchies, altered Rolos/MemoryDex cards, and tags. Mixed media art and collage fascinate me, but I am still learning the process of letting go of the clean lines and having things "perfect" and just going with the flow and embracing the creative commotion!

Some of my favorite things are dragonflies, butterflies, hummingbirds, lady bugs, bees, flowers, leaves, anything fall, snowflakes, anything winter/Christmas, steampunk, paisley, owls, peacocks, feathers, keys, lighthouses, fairies, gnomes, mushrooms and woodland animals like fox, deer, elk, moose, bear, hedgehogs, etc. I honestly don't have a favorite color and basically like them all equally. I love texture and like to touch things. Needless to say, I don't like signs that say, "Do Not Touch!" I love quotes and words!

Although I am a Christian, I would prefer not to receive images of crosses. I do not drink alcohol or coffee and would prefer not to have items with these themes. Also please do not send me crude or inappropriate things.

I basically have two hobbies ~ crafting and collecting things to craft with. I enjoy collecting everyday ephemera to upcycle/recycle to incorporate into my crafts such as stamps, packaging, junk mail, envelopes, pop cans, material from old clothing, lace, fibers, leather from old belts and purses especially if it has an embossed design, jewelry, watches, and cool tags off of things I have bought ~ I have even bought a shirt because I loved the tag that was on it so much! ;) lol

My favorite season is fall and I wish it would last longer. I just love the crisp fall air and beautiful fall colors, but who doesn't love a fresh snowfall in the winter, a spring rainstorm or a cool breeze on a hot summer day! There is something to enjoy every day!

EXTRAS: Although extras can be fun, please don't feel you need to include them to receive a heart. I would rather you take the "extra" time working on the swap for me than you taking time to look for "extras" to include with your swap!

I only push the sent button after I have dropped the swap off at the post office or the blue mailbox. If you do not receive a swap marked sent, it is lost in the mail. Please message me if this happens, and I will resend. Also please let me know if one of my swaps ever comes owing postage, so I can send you money to cover it. I don't always go inside the post office to have them weigh it because I have a scale and do my best to put adequate postage on, but I have noticed at my own post office different postal workers are more strict and require more postage than others.

I also have two USA only groups here on swap-bot if you would like to check them out to see if they interest you and to see if you meet the qualifications to join. They are:

Comment: Michele thanks for the great ATC. I love all the Lit’l details & the matching stamp. I love all of the extra goodies you sent me, thank you!! I also love your story abt why you love hummingbirds. I’ve already looked up the author you suggested. Her books sound good. I’ve started doing audios while I do my art. Sometimes the lighthearted silly rom-coms get old so I can’t wait to try this new author. I just finished listening to a Freida McFadden book. I’d never heard of her but my daughter recommended her. She said all of her books are good but told me two that were really good to start with. The one I listened to was called The Inmate and it did not disappoint right up to the end!!! Thanks for your recommendation!!

Comment: WOW Michele! What an awesome envelope of fabulous die-cuts! Such a beautiful job. I especially love the multi-layered "Bee Happy", the peacocks, the hummingbirds, and the ducks!

Response: Awww - thank you for the kind words and the heart! ♥ I'm happy that you liked what I sent to you and that it put a smile on your face! ☺ See you in the swaps again soon!

Comment: Oh the fairies are great! I love the color of blue you used. I like the hummingbird paper you used too. It was a great challenge. Thanks. Sounds like you had fun on your road trip. Sometimes you just need to get away. You are lucky to be so close to those great national parks.
Response: I’m so glad you liked them. I must admit that I did try to use blue since it’s your favorite color. 😁 Thanks for trying this card technique with me. It was an easy enough mechanism to make that I think I’m going to do it again. She also made an A2 version on her channel that might be fun to try. Yes, I am very blessed to live in such a beautiful state - absolutely love where I live! Thank you for the heart! ♥️ See you in the swaps again soon! 😀

Comment: I love the card and tags you used this technique on. Pretty colors, love the shiny dragonfly and butterfly. Love the hummingbirds too. I got a new hummingbird feeder last weekend and a junk store. It is pretty and they should be back around April 15. I cant wait. Love doing these swaps. Thanks!
Response: I am happy you liked what I made for you. I have a lot of hummingbird feeders and love to see them in my yard. The hummers remind me of my father-in-law. He always loved them and had lots of feeders too. Thank you for the heart! ♥

Comment: LOVE the bees! They turned out great! I used darker colors for the water on ink background and I was shocked - it turned out great. I used an easter egg stamp. They were all fun but I used the stripes of color with water. I made 2 cards, of course sent both. I love the bee awesome stamp you used on the front of the envelope too. Thanks See you in the next swap!
Response: I'm happy you liked what I made for you. Thank you for joining my swap and trying these out with me. I thought it was a lot of fun. Thank you for the heart! ♥ See you in the swaps again soon! ☺
