About Me

I'm an Architect and Interior designer from Texas who has a real passion for creativity. I have been married for twenty-two years to Andy. We are avid travelers and have been all over the world: China, Egypt, Peru, Ireland, Greece, Italy, France, England, Scotland, Russia, Germany, Switzerland, India, Canada, Jamaica, and a few other spots. My hobbies are traveling, scrapbooking, altered art, painting (oil & watercolor), glass blowing, ceramics, and swaps. I have a 9 year old daughter (MaryAlice) and 6 year old (Abby). They were a HUGE surprise to us in our 40's. Now while all of my friends are sending their kids off to college ours are starting school. Lol

My husband was transferred to Kansas in 2019. Needless to say after a cross country move it has taken me a year to get back on swapbot. I sure did miss it!

My creative addictions.

I enjoy making, ATC's, cards, jewelry, flowers, dominos, soldered items, beading, journals, x-mas ornaments, altered matchboxes, mini books, scrapbooking, embossing metal, note cards, altered bottle caps, shrines, ephemera, glass fusing, and painting with watercolors. In other words I enjoy making just about anything.

Favorite Television

Shows I like to watch, The Walking dead, Major crime, Big bang theory, Vikings, Game of thrones, Law & order SVU, Downton Abbey, American horror story, Mayans, War of the worlds, and anything on the sci-fi, or chiller channel. Lately I am enjoying binging on Hulu, Netflix and Sundance now.

Favorite Movies

I love movies! Dramas, romantic comedy's, action & adventure, sci-fi, mysteries, but my FAVORITE are scary movies.

Favorite Music

I have a wide taste in music. You can find everything from Beethoven to Metallica on my ipod. I started collecting foreign music Cd's a few years ago while traveling.

Wish List:

Some of my favorite things are:

Broken jewelry: necklaces, watches, bracelets, etc.... I like to repurpose them.

keys: I want your no longer needed keys, I like to repurpose those as well.

Book pages in foreign languages! I love these and can not get enough.

My birthday is March 17, "St. Patrick's Day" so clovers, shamrocks and anything Irish are a HUGE hit with me :)

Anything travel related, foreign money, charms, ATC, jewelry ,unique paper, maps, old book pages, old photographs, jewelry bits, small vintage items, seed beads, small items for matchboxes or bottle caps, lace, ribbon, origami art, shrines, ephemera, and buttons.

ALLERGIES: Smoke, cat hair, and perfumes

HALLOWEEN Likes I am a huge fan of Michael Myers and love all of the old school Halloween movies (Friday the 13, Halloween, Nightmare on elm street, Scream, Trick or treat, Scary stories to tell in the dark, etc.) I decorate with vintage black cats & love Halloween socks. I have been on the look out for Scary stories to tell in the dark on DVD. Horror movie enamel pins, Halloween crock embellishments, and Halloween jewelry is always appreciated.

Mailing & Rating

Your swap happiness: I take great pride in my creations. I spend time on my swap items and DO NOT sticker slap. I only send things I would want to receive. If you are unhappy with something please let me know. I can not fix things I do not know about.

Rating: I try and rate when I receive an item but life sometimes gets in the way. If for any reason I do not rate you PLEASE send me a message.

mdrogge rated for RED: Vintage ATC Swap #3 on Mar 10, 2023
Comment: Thank you so much, love the card and extras.
Comment: The ATC is beautiful. I like the way you offset the heart and all the tiny bits you added. It made it extra special. And ALL the extras - WOW!!! Keep trying the Fortune Teller Fish and it barely moves. I guess I am "dead" - haha!
Comment: So cute! Thanks so much. Really appreciate the extras.
Comment: Thank you for such a nice ATC! The embellishments were really pretty. I wish I could add a heart to this rating. The swap name on the back of the ATC was marked as "Sticker Slap ATC Valentine" so I'm not sure if it was meant for another swap but it definitely met the criteria for being sparkly, shiny, and Valentine-themed. I am only rating a 3 because it was sent noticeably late with no prior communication. The swap description included "Start now,short turn around time." The swap send-by date was February 10, but it was marked sent on February 16. Tracking showed it in the hands of USPS on February 21. Metered postage also showed February 21. If you bought it late enough on February 18, Saturday, the label and postage could show February 21 (due to the holiday on February 20, Monday) but it would still be late. Edit: thank you for the second ATC you sent, although it wasn't necessary. I love it. Hope you are feeling better.

Comment: Thanks so very much for this ATC. I would have never thought to use a pop can in such a way, especially for an ATC! Very clever idea...and I can understand your interest in the tiny embellishments you used on this, as I love crocheting with cotton thread...very thin and hard to learn to use, from my own personal experience at least. Thanks again for this! It turned out very cool.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC! I love all the little bits you used too. Thank you also for the fun new things I can use in my ATCs.
Comment: Cute ATC. Thanks
