About Me

Hi! I'm Ashley, I'm 27! I'm from ohio-cleveland area. I'm married to Jason, August 29, 2009. I have an 8 yr old daughter and 3 yr old son(they have their own section below)! They are my entire world! I have a big family, 3 brothers and 2 sisters. And now have a niece, Luna Rose, born August 13, 2011 and a nephew, Dahmanic born May 14, 2012. I love being an aunty!

I work full time and go to school part time! I'm finally going to get my dream career as a nurse started! I just finished my phlebotomy course and am working on getting my certificate!

I'm not really artistic, but I'm very creative, and I have really cool ideas. But since I'm not artistic, I sometimes have a hard time translating those ideas to paper. But, since being here, I've found some really nifty tricks, ideas and techniques for making my crafting really pop!



  • ATCs!
  • Cool, unique ATC making supplies
  • book pages
  • unique, different, interesting ephemera
  • anything in a language other than english
  • hummingbirds, they remind me of my grandma.
  • anything vintage (either actual or vintage looking), I really like the look.
  • TIM HOLTZ products!! from inks to papers to stamps and everything in between!
  • I like steampunk style artwork
  • grunge style as well
  • zentangles, zendalas, new patterns, etc.
  • Old calendars that I can make into envies, fbs, or can use for ATCs
  • making cool, unique envies to send my swaps in
  • The saying "live, laugh, love"
  • tattoos
  • mandala colorings/coloring sheets (they help me relax).
  • anything how-to/instructional for crafts
  • anything religious (but don't try to convert me please)
  • I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the peace sign!
  • Organization tips, supplies, etc
  • I love the pittsburgh steelers football team!

DISLIKES: Nothing right now. If I get anything I don't like I will find someone to pass it on to and it really is difficult to offend me. However, anything sexist or racist or discriminatory in any way I do find extremely offensive. I have very strong views on certain things, and I get very compassionate about them. One thing I really dislike is intolerance.

the kiddos-Tatyana and Braylon

My daughter, Tatyana, is 8 yrs old. She is in third grade (wow!). She plays basketball and she's made me super proud by being placed in the advanced program this year at school! She's young for her grade, starting kindergarten at 4, not turning 5 til October so I was worried, but she continues to amaze me every day. We've been told, and tend to agree, by a couple teachers that she has an old soul and that she has one of the biggest hearts.

She was born October 19, 2006. She is your typical girly girl. She likes anything pink, or purple. She likes barbies, peace signs, butterflies, feathers and just about anything girly. She also love stamps (like rubber stamps) and making cards. She has also started reading beginner chapter books. She loves writing letters, cute stationery and cool pens. She's also really into Frozen right now.

Braylon is my lil man. He was born October 27, 2011 and is currently 3 years old. He's a little fireball of energy and sass with some stubborn in there. But he's also the sweetest little guy who loves to cuddle with his mamma. Anyways, he likes typical boy stuff...tools, cars. He also LOVES despicable me, escpecially the minions, the movie Cars, and anything Lightening McQueen, Caillou, Blue's Clue's, Shrek. He likes to color and write, he love stickers and notepads.

the hubby-Jason

My hubby makes fun of my swap-bot addiction but its because he just doesn't understand just how absolutely amazing it is here! And I think he's jealous, secretly of course. So, if you're feelin froggy and wanna put something in for him, that's what this is for. Or, for any swaps I join for SOs or the likes. He love the Chicago Bulls basketball team, favorite bulls player of all time is Michael Jordan (so much so that he wants to name our daughter if we have one jordan michelle). He also likes the Chicago White Sox baseball team, Pittsburgh Steelers football team, Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team, and Michigan college football team (go blue!). He's a handyman who loves learning all about how things work. He also likes anything having to do with being a father or daddy. He loves being a daddy. He isn't the biological father of Tatyana, but he is her daddy. He's been around and has been taking care of her since she was 3 months old. Ummmm...he pretty much likes most things "manly" or sportsy. He's pretty easy to please. Oh, except cars, he never really got into them, except doing model cars. That's all for now folks!

Religion, beliefs, etc

I'm Catholic. I strongly believe in this, but I have never and will never try to convert anyone or push my beliefs on them. I respectfully request that you do the same for me. I respect everyone's beliefs and I'm the type of person that actually loves to learn about other cultures, beliefs and religions, so I will always welcome some thoughtful discussion on the topic. I will NEVER put somebody's religion or beliefs down. Please don't put mine down.

Favorite Books

I like most kinds of books. The only ones I don't really like are comic and history. There might be more and I will add as I think of more or come accross ones I don't like. Some of my favorite authors are nora roberts (writing as j.d.robb too), john grisham, nicholas sparks, danielle steele, steven king, and again I'm sure there are more and I will add as I go along. I love the twilight saga!!

Favorite Television

I love reality TV like America's Next Top Model and Jersey Shore. I also like shows like True Blood, 90210, Community, Family Guy, The Following. And I watch random shows on the diy network and hgtv like house hunters.
I also love, love, love The Walking Dead!!

Favorite Crafts

I like crafts where I can be as creative as possible. I LOVE making ATCs and APCs and Zentangles, I love, love, love making them. They help calm me and relax me, and crafting in general helps me find my happy. I pretty much love any kind of papercrafting, the more different the better. I have beginners sewing skills and no sewing machine, so I don't do much of that. Never could quite get the hang of crocheting and knitting, no matter how many times my grandma tried teaching me. I love doing anything with my daughter, like cards, coloring, or any other fun projects I can find.

Swaps, etc....

I will always rate!! If I haven't rated you yet, and you think it's been long enough for me to recieve your package, send me a quick message reminding me. Also, for any swaps I host, I will ban any users I want to. If you haven't logged on recently, I will ban you. If you don't have a profile filled out, I will ban you. If you have any swaps you are late on, I will ban you. If you don't like it, don't sign up for my swaps. I would rather have a couple people mad at me for banning them, than to have people flaked on in my swaps.

@love2teach for Scentsy Swap she is back and actively swapping with absolutely no acknowledgement of this not arriving. Very disappointing that people still let her swap with a 1 by someone who is still active here. UPDATE 7/16/13: Swapper has re-sent, and it has arrived.


Please no stickers for me right now, I have SO many, I am up to my ears in stickers. (My kiddos will always enjoy stickers, so if you've got extra to send For them, I'm sure they would enjoy them)

Comment: Thanks Ashley for this wonderful zine as well as the zentangle tiles and ATC tiles too! Your instructions were great and I am going to add them to my other ones. I have had the same problem when I tried to copy a zine with so much black...it used up the whole cartridge when I tried it. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Thank you Sherry for the rating, heart and kind compliments! I wasted so much ink trying to print copies and they didn't even come out good! I'm glad I made two from scratch, it got me the practice for making them, since these were my first!! Happy swapping(!

Response: Thank you for the rating and nice compliment, these were the first ones I've ever made!
