I am a former preschool teacher and I taught Summer Camp and other grades.. for many years!

When I am not teaching, I love to sew and craft....and camp in my teardrop camper. I am married and have 3 grown children and two dogs(sadly, one of our dogs passed. He was a very loving dog and will be greatly missed.).

I rate when I receive. I try to send what I would love to receive. I mark sent when I put it in mailbox ...stamped send dates may be different due to when collection is. Please let me know if you did not receive.

I reuse when I can...Do not be offended...I will reuse bits and pieces and envelopes!

Kitty2cats rated for YTPC: Ruffle Embellishments USA on Aug 24, 2021
Comment: Hi Donna, I'm loving these paper ruffles! Thank you♥️I think using glue to hold the ruffles in place is a brilliant idea, works better than switching for me. I've tried that and it was a mess. Yours are really cute...will be using them in my journal and other crafts.
Response: Thanks for the kind words 😊 I had fun making them... Thanks for the rating and the heart ❤️
Kitty2cats rated for SMSUSA: mini expandable pockets on Aug 24, 2021
Comment: Hi Donna, Lucky you. Getting my name for 2 swaps. I thought these were really fun to try, but for some reason, I thought both sides would have a gusset. It's a great way to send a penfriend/swap partner something small filled with a few goodies. Thank you!
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart ❤️ I thought it was a fun twist...to have one sided gusset...I hope you had fun creating it and I hope you can use them and the ruffle embellishments... Happy swapping! Thanks for joining my swap 🙂
