About Me

I've never been good at telling people about myself but here it goes. I've lived in Maryland my whole life but would love to pack it all up and move. I just don't know where we'd go. I'm a mother of 3, have been married to my wonderful husband for 10 years. I work 6 days a week so my spare time is spent with my kids and husband or crafting with my girlfriends. I love making signs out of old wood and I've actually gotten pretty good at it! I love all things primitive! Pinterest is my addiction :) I found this site when a customer at my work was telling me about it. Sounds like it will be a lot of fun! I like to think that I have a good sense of humor and pretty easy to get along with.

Favorite Music

I'll listen to pretty much everything depending on my mood.. I love rock when I'm getting ready to out for an evening of fun..I like slow music when I'm upset about something..etc.

Favorite Books

I love Nicholas Sparks. Anything romantic! A friend has lent me 2 books by James Patterson. I've never read anything by him before but so far the first book was pretty good.

Favorite Movies

  • My all time favorite movie is "Definitely Maybe" and I'm not sure why lol there's nothing special about it and to some people maybe not even that good. But for some reason I love it and could watch it over and over again!!
  • The Blind Side- Sandra Bullock was amazing in this movie. Just a nice story all around! Oh and...GO RAVENS!! :)
  • Sweet Home Alabama
  • The Grown Ups..1 and 2 but I liked the first one the best!

Favorite Television

*CSI:NY *Bones *Flashpoint *Army Wives *Dexter I love cop shows because (with the exception of Dexter) it gives me hope that in most cases the good guys come out on top! I recently started watching Saving Hope. It's pretty good. *Grey's Anatomy *Last Man Standing

Favorite Crafts

I love all crafts. A few girlfriends of mine get together once a month and have craft night. We leave our husbands and kids at home and we craft. We each bring something to eat and we all pinch in money to get the necessary materials. and we have lots of laughs and at the end of the night, a nice craft to display in our homes. We've all gotten really good and some of our other friends have asked for us to make them one for their homes. I love the primitive country look so that's usually the types of crafts we do. I've recently started making homemade cards with a friend. She does amazing work so I'm hoping to learn a lot from her!!


  • All things pumpkin...cookies, coffee creamer, tarts etc. Fall is my favorite time of the year!!
  • scrap booking paper
  • lotion
  • beauty products
  • postcards from all over-4x6 size would be great! I'm putting them in a photo album!
  • washi tape
  • stationary
  • hand towels
  • candles *embossing folders *Embossing powder *card making supplies-Stampin' Up! is amazing!


  • snakes
  • please don't send food or drink items (they will get tossed) unless it's specific to the swap.
  • the smell of cigarette smoke--I smoked for a long time and finally quit 3 years ago so now the smell nearly knocks me over. I don't have too many dislikes. Joining this group wasn't about the items being swapped. For me it was to meet new people and see what part of the world everything came from. I think it's pretty cool that I'm getting PC's from Texas or a recipe card from Georgia. It's fascinating to me!!


I rate the same day I receive a swap. Please rate me as well. If you don't receive something from me PLEASE let me know before you rate that way I can resend. I know life happens (this is my schedule for the week--Mon.- work and football practice for my son, Tues--work, dance practice for my daughter, Wed--work, football practice for my son and a softball game for my daughter, Thurs--work and football practice and Fri--work and a softball game for my daughter) life is hectic sometimes and we don't get our swaps in the blue box the day it's due. I totally get it. As long as I receive the swap you're getting a 5..maybe even a heart!!

Comment: thanks, loved them all especially the one you made.
Comment: pretty sad when the host flakes on you. carla hasn't answered any message. will gladly change rating once i receive the swap. ** 7/22/17 - finally received.but your not allowed to turn a express mail box inside out and mail it a different way. im suprised your post office didnt catch it with the adhesive pieces outside.
Response: I'm not really sure why you're concerned with the way I mailed it. The post office I sent it out of is my office. I work there. I sent plenty more than what was expected and sent it flat like you asked and still only a 3? I know I was late but I did explain and made it right!! But that is ok. I'll just remember not do anymore swaps with you. Hope you have a great day!!
