About Me


Everyday day I wake up and make the decision to be kind, to give hearts because it's the VERY LEAST I can do to be a good & compassionate person - I can be the change I want in the world...

  • "Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart."

  • “The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”

  • “Be the weirdo who dares to enjoy.”

Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

PHOTOs- I take photos of all my swaps & envie's before I send them out - so I will email a copy of the photos if something goes awry or gaga with the US post to verify that I'm not a flaker or flaking. Please let me know if there's a problem and I'll gladly send it again. Thank a Postie for all their hard work for us crafty swappers.

I will contact you if my swap doesn't get there within a reasonable time because I like to know if the time & effort I spent making a treasure made it to you. Unless overseas, then I generally wait 30days or more. But please, do me the CURTSEY of acknowledging my efforts timely.

Aloha! I give ❤️❤️ BECAUSE in a world full of people judging, criticizing, thumbs up/down, like/disliking everything, if someone took the time out of their day to buy a stamp, send a card/note/letter, walk to the mailbox, etc... just to brighten my day, then I am grateful because nobody is forced to do anything they don't want to do.

So thanks in advance for giving of YOUR TIME, spending YOUR money to mail me your special creations. You didn't have to share so that speaks volumes of your character - in my humble opinion...if your dislike list is long, this too says much of your character. I'm here to learn and experience other people, not just "stuff" & "things".

I put a lot of thought & 💕 into sending out your happy mail because I want to bring a smile to your door.

Comment: Thanks for the fun JJ house and all the unusual extras inside. I love that your door opens. :)
Response: Hiya!! So glad you like the jj house but I don't remember what I added extra... I had a small bin of small projects from other swaps so I think I probably grabbing little jj embellishments that you could clip into a journal or upcycle, like clusters? When I look at the pic I took of the swap before I sealed, its only the house & the envie so it was definitely a blind grab on my part. I hope they weren't too unusual, lol!! xxMuggleMom

Comment: Thanks so much for your chunky valentine clusters! The stitching and detail work was great! Also, loved that you chose non-traditional colors but still captured the VDay vibe :)
Response: Happy, happy you like! I had worked on a lot of vintage valentine clusters so I think I was on a roll and gave you some of them. My pic of the swap was deleted for some reason so I can't remember what I put in the envie - tho I know I upcycled an old junk mail envie with a see through peek - again, working on another swap project, lol! I do remember a purple one that I did last year but didn't mail off. I hope Valentine day is full of all the things you love! xxMuggleMom

Comment: What a lovely looking pudding, it was even slightly orange from the carrot. Success! The Jesmond custard with its blandness, is in keeping with our currie discovery of lack of modern flavour too. Well done, and thank you so much for participating. Many hearts
Response: I hope we keep making recipes from years gone by as it will only add to our appreciation of how our families improved on old family favorites! Thank you for the💜 xx MuggleMom
