About Me

I am from a small town in Canada. I love animals, have 1 very special lifetime friend, Miguel who is my massive Husky/wolf mix, and a cat, a Mom of 3, almost an empty nest. My daughter returns home on breaks from University I am a grandmother of 4, 3 girls and a boy (16 months to 10 years old). I do have pets and smoke, but try my best to have things leave my house without any of these attachments. (when I open my studio door, I have a greeting committee, lol)

I love genealogy and am researching my family tree I try to make the effort of taking the time to suit my swap partners likes. My funds are limited but am building my swap collection slowly.

I work with the public and enjoy meeting people and listening to their stories.

Favorite Crafts

Love acrylics, watercolor, ATC, scrapbooking, cardmaking, plastic canvas, love all crafts basically. . I know I've got quite a way to go on my journey but loving the process.

I love anything vintage, nautical, rustic, magical, colorful, ATCs, .......... so many things that I will update as I go along.

I love animals, love Ravens and Wolves,drawings, sketches, paintings, atc's, One of my goals is to do a fantastic painting of Odin with his loyal companions..

I love to get anything that is made by someone, and love the joy it brings in both giving and receiving art.

Hoping to start clay doll making soon. Would love to get any thing to do with doll making. -- UPDATE: I made my first for a swap with RyeRye and she loved it.

Favorite Movies

I love horror (the spooky kind, not the gorey kind) and zombie movies. I know that's kind of contradictory, but I do lol. The Stand and Stand by Me, two of my favorite movies by my favorite author Stephen King. Dr Zhivago and Sophie's Choice and Gone with the Wind are my favorite classics. Love mystery, adventure, romance, history, Guess I love it all..

Favorite Television

Zombie related - Walking Dead; Z Nation; The 100; just getting into The Vikings; Son's of Anarchy; Cooking shows, the Food Channel basically :-);

Favorite Books

Stephen King and Dean R Koontz are two of my favorites, 'The Stand' is my all time favorite book. Love the Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Aual. Would love to read more of her works when I find the time.


Love Red, Orange, Turquoise, Deep Blue, Bright Green.

Craft wish list

ATC's Card Stock Journal Papers Stamps Inks Nibbed Pens Double Sided Tape Craft Duct Tape Vintage Items Steampunk Tim Holtz Unique Playing Cards Raffia Coins Stamps Newsprint Napkins Tissue paper Lace 3x5" Rolodex cards please if you have any to spare ohhh and of course I love surprises and artisan work by my swap partner.


** Perfume, especially Oscar, severely allergic to this one in particular

** Anything smelling old, musty, or mildewy. When I buy a used book, I always smell it first.

*** Worms, absolutely nothing involving creatures like this with the exception of caterpillars, snakes, snails.

Would be interested in

personal swap for friendship book, altered book, atc's, etc.

Would love for you to include a personal quote if you'd like for my journal.

Up for any ideas for a swap if you are looking for anything from Canada. I

Please forgive me

Some swaps I have gotten out late I have to apologize. I am not feeling well lately and having a difficult time. I always honor my swaps, please, if you haven't gotten it yet, it will get to you. If not, I will certainly resend. I am not going to take on any further swaps until I am physically able to, which will not be until after the new year. I hope to be able to get back to sharing in everyone's creativity. Thank you for understanding.

I am so sorry for not getting things out lately, I am suffering from depression and right now am not able to do anything. I am going to honor my commitments as soon as I am able to and feel terrible for not getting these done.

UPDATE: I am slowly waking up and trying to get back into the real world of a functioning adult although, it's a little difficult since I've never really ever grown up. I will be going through everything to see what I have to send out and sincerely apologize to all those I have inflicted a feeling of unfair trade upon, as I know it really isn't a nice feeling. I feel my greatest quality is what I can give of myself to another and not doing what I was suppose to have done has held me down , from my road to recovery, feeling heavy and laden with guilt. I will definitely be completing or redoing my outgoing swaps and will be putting my best work into it, so please don't expect them soon, but know that it will be delivered, hopefully someday soon, although two will be taking up quite a bit of time and will be longer getting out. Thank you all for your kind words and understanding.

Comment: Lorie, I truly hope you are feeling better and have possibly reached out for help for yourself. I've marked you as a one for the time being. Should I receive anything I will adjust my score.

Comment: I still haven't received anything, giving you extra time due personal issues, and I really get it also not doing well at the moment. But try to communicate and do some things day by day. Hope you will be feeling well soon.
Comment: will be rerating once recieved.

Comment: wonderful swap!
Comment: It took me a while to rate this swap. I allowed extra time for it to arrive due to me moving. After some time the swap hasn't showed. I contacted Lorie and she said that while be marked sent on Oct 31, 2016 the swap hadn't actually been sent due to some personal issues. I totally get that, we all have issues and I understand so I am totally willing to rerate if this cards does arrive : ) Take care!
Comment: Lorie Beaton never sent this swap, and I've had no communication about it.
Response: I am so sorry, I will be sending it out when I get a chance. I haven't even done any Christmas shopping for my family yet..... My weight is almost down to 100 now, and my poor dog is still waiting to go for a walk. I feel really bad about not getting it done. It won't be until after Christmas for certain but if I can before that I will. I also had a craft table paid for a few weeks ago, and not one thing finished for it so I gave the table away.

Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: It's a shame the postal systems are playing silly beans with this swap, so I am rating on the Flickr photo whilst we wait it out. Thank you for the initial send on 8 Aug and the resend on 31 Aug (unrequested, but appreciated!). I love the stack of books and see that you highlighted by favourite one! I really do hope this makes it to me and will update the rating as either / both of the swaps come in. Link to Flickr photo - https://www.flickr.com/photos/142158613@N07/29960803440/in/photostream/
Response: Thank you so much for the rating and I really hope it makes it as well. When I saw your favorite book I thought, well it has to be one of this, since it's coming from the town setting in the story Thank you for keeping me updated as well

I watched the tutorial you suggested. And I am overwhelmed by the work you put in for the Whimsy Pocket. WOW

njstauter on Sep 30, 2016:

I am overwhelmed with everything in that Pocket Whimsy, and today the Frankincense is intoxicating. I have some doterra but this is yummy. I wish I knew the techniques you used: ! to get the raised hand and then...oh, just everything. I wish you would do a tutorial and if you did, please send me the link. YOU are wonderful

Hi Lorie, this is the profile check for Handmade Embellished Paperclips and I'm sorry to have to tell you that this is a USA only swap! Thank you for wanting to join but as the others are going to be looking to only send in the USA and the cost to mail would be a big difference I'm going to go ahead and Ban you in this one!!!!! If you would still like to do the swap I am more then open to mailing to you and can set up a swap just for you and me! I hope you understand! Again thank you so much for wanting to be a part of this swap! Happy Swapping, Jaimie Randolph

Hi Lorie, I'm wondering if my paper napkin swap has made its way to you yet? I mailed it almost 3 weeks ago, and there's no rating yet.
