Favorite Crafts

I started out scrapbooking in my early 20's then moved to cardmaking since it required way less organization of my many boxes of photos.. LOL. I fell in love with the cardmaking & other paper crafts and am amazed at all of the different tools, dies, stamps and machines that are available. I have a Gemini, Cricut, lots of stickers, fair amt of dies & small amt of stamps...it seems like forever to get a good stock built up. I teach a monthly craft class with a good friend of mine at our local library and love passing on our love of crafts to everyone and anyone who wants to join us.

Favorite Television

Since I was a sickly kid, I fell in love with TV at a young age and still love it and use it as a tool to relax while crafting. I love true crime shows, thrillers, fantasy shows like Game Of Thrones and Vampire Diaries, Hilarious shows like Friends and Carol Burnette and some of popular network programing like Dancing with the Stars.

About Me

I am a mother of 1 adult son and 1 beautiful 12yr old granddaughter who is my favorite craft buddy. We live in the country, in WV, and have horses, dogs and cats. As far as favorites go I would say favorite color is most all shades of blue, especially deep ocean blue and teals. I love all animals but would have to say my favorite animal would be horses or dogs. I love to watch tv, read and especially craft. Since joining swapbot I am now addicted to all kinds of papercrafting, making ATC's, little albums, cardstock purses, small 3 x5 cards...anything you can make with cardstock is fun for me. I LOVE using die cuts and stickers & all embellishments that I can get my hands on. I don't sticker slap, I do painting, inking...or some other technique then use some stickers or die cuts to put finishing touches on. I love anything historical, especially ancient Egypt or Rome. I am fascinated by the paranormal and enjoy all the ghost hunting or haunting shows on TV, my husband teases me about it since he is a non believer. LOL.

Favorite Crafts

I would say my FAVORITE craft item to use is double sided paper and cardstock!!, die cuts, nice stickers, metal embellishments, handmade embelllishments and any adorable embellishment that can be added to my paper crafts. As far as my favorite things to receive in a swap I would have to say is double sided paper and cardstock, metal embellishmenst, handmade embellishmensts, die cuts, pieces of neat card stock to use in layering, nice stickers (especially puffy or 3D type stickers), animal stickers, and other small embellishments...anything I can use in cardmaking, paper crafts & decorating envelopes for my swaps. I am restarting my foreign banknote & coin collection so if you are international and interested in a swap like that let me know. I am not picky.If we are swapping please please please label the foreign banknotes & coins since I do not have a book or reference to figure it out...pretty new to collecting them. I am so enjoying this swap bot experience and getting to meet other people that love their crafting as much as I do.

About Me

Something I want you to know is that I send out my swaps as soon as I get my swap partners so if you do not receive a swap from me it has to be a boo-boo during the postal experience because I would not flake on you. I live in a small town with a very small-town post office that closes at noon so sometimes things are post stamped a couple days after I put them out, I am sorry but there is no way I can fix that. When I put my trade in the mailbox, I mark it as sent so please be understanding if you are one that looks at postal stamps. If you do not receive something by close to end of the swap date (unless you are overseas bc that would require extra time) please contact me so I can get you a replacement in the mail asap. Thanks a bunch because I want to make sure you get your swap plus it is important to me to maintain a good rating. Happy Swapping!

About Me

I recently have been starting to do some craft fairs, there are only a couple in my small town a year but have been working hard to get some good crafts done to sell in it. During this process I am realizing that I am in need of some really cute embellishments that I put on my paper crafts, metal ones, wood ones, tassles, unusually buttons....so if you are one of my swap partners and are looking for something that I may like please consider any of these items, they would be greatly appreciated.

Comment: Hi Diane, I so love hyper dogs like your coon hound, she must be tons of fun. Tiger (Slick) is so smart opening the screen door by himself. I love proving to dog people that cats are smart too LOL Loved reading about your horses also
Response: Thank you, I would love to meet your Charoal (appropriate name with her fur right? lol). I think pets should outnumber the people in the family! lol. Yes cats are super smart, too smart sometimes. Slick will open the door & come in...we yell at him and he just turns and walks out....waits for you to walk away then does it again. lol. I think he does it as a game. lol. Thank you for the heart, hope to see you in another swap:)

Comment: Holy smokes!!! You really do love lots of animals. I would love to have a horse.
Response: Yes I love them. When I have a bad day I go out to the barn and just bury my face in their mane and just their smell is therapeutic and I instantly feel better. They just sense when you need them and they will just stand there and just let you love on them:) Thank you for the heart

Comment: What a lovely story you have about your animals. I, too, am a horse lover but I haven't been so fortunate to have one of my own; but I had a best friend in high school who had 2 (a quarter horse and a palomino) and we would go riding all the time.
Response: Wow you are so lucky to have had a friend with a horse, that was my dream growing up but unfortunately I did not know even 1 person that even liked horses.lol. How the heck was I born the only one (and I have a HUGE family) that loved horses? I think it is something that we are born with for sure. Drove my parents crazy talking about them, asking for one....etc. LOL. If you lived closer I would have you over to ride!

Comment: Thanks for the handmade mini envelopes, glass seed beads, memo sheets and 6x6 decor. cardstock paper. The envelopes are cute. The one with the pearl alike embellishment was showing through the outer large envelope, yet seems fine. Guess it wanted to peek outside, during it's travels! ๐Ÿ˜€ ~ Z
Response: Oh no, I am glad the whole envelope didn't rip. I always worry about that. Glad you liked the goodies! Thank you for the 5 and heart! Have a great day!

Hi Diane!

Dropping by to say hi! Keep up the good work, making the world a more beautiful place one papercraft at a time :-)

Hi Diane!

Fun fact: my aunt shares the same name as you but with one more 'n'.

I'm currently taking a breather from my study but will be swallowed up with it again once I complete this particular swap.

I hope you are doing well though and enjoying your swaps.

Anyway, have a lovely week :)

x Jess jessnewson

Hi Diane. As I'm writing this I'm inside, but my curtains are open, and it's a very beautiful and pleasant day outside. I hope you have a good spring.

pretty vintage painting of a fawn surrounded by birds and flowers

hello diane, i hope you're having a fantastic day/night! i also love crafting, but i mainly focused on embroidery lately (as i'm pretty much used to hand-sew everything and can't really use the sewing machine haha).
