About Me

Please do NOT send extras or tuck-ins! I’m limited on space and don’t use up extra papers, fabrics, tapes, etc. I tend toward fiber arts and 3D collage type pieces. I appreciate the thoughtfulness behind you actions in trying to share and pass along the love of all kinds of crafts. I’m just trying to cut back and use up what I have. Thank you for your understanding.

I'm a married mama to a pretty cool 7 year old. I work for a pickle factory, full time. I crochet a lot in my free time, and have pen pals I write to regularly. Occasionally I'll participate in Postcrossing, and have a postcard book to hopefully inspire the kid to travel.

I tend to watch and listen to a lot of paranormal shows and podcasts...if you have a favorite, let me know. My favorites are The Dead Files and Ghost Hunters, and Darkness Prevails. I recently got my husband hooked on the Outlander series from Stars...the series based off Diana Gabaldon's book series. And I'm super excited for the next book to be released, as I've been reading the series since 2005. Dragonfly in Amber is still my favorite book of hers.

I also really love pit bulls... I shared life with one for 11 years. She passed 6 months ago, and I still miss her horribly.

When crocheting, I tend towards the unexpected house decoration type pieces. However, the quirkier it is, the better. My favorite thing to make are F Bombs.

I'm not particularly fond of cooking, but when I do it's recipes my mom and grandmother taught me when I was a child. I also became the family "Recipe Keeper," which I don't mind.

I don't really collect anything, but do have a small collection of Funko Pop figurines and Santa's. Otherwise, my pen obsession keeps me trying to not become a hoarder!!! My daughter also has more shoes than I do! I also tend to have an overflow of notecards, stationary, and journals...

I tend to love Fall and Spring equally, as I get to enjoy the drastic change from winter to spring with all the pretty shades of green and the start of flowers and Thunderstorms! I love fall for similar reasons...the change of color in the leaves, cooler weather for bon fires...however, I’m not a fan of pumpkin spice anything!!!

Dislikes... most girly things, as I just don’t use things like makeup, glittery jewelry, Disney anything, etc. If I receive anything I’m not fond of, I will pass it along to another swapper or to a pen pal who would use it.

Allergies... I am allergic to most bath items, so please refrain from sending those items, unless it’s all naturally made from sustainable resources. I do make my own face wash and body scrubs from time to time, and would love to share those “recipes” if you’d be interested in sharing them.

Thanks in advance!

Comment: Hi Kim! It sounds like you had a lovely quiet weekend (my favourite kind, haha). Thank you for the polaroid of the first snow there, I love when people send photos :) I was 45 mins north visiting my bf this weekend and we got our first snow too, it was so beautiful (and thankfully not too cold haha). I hope you have a lovely winter x

Comment: Thank you for the funny card and for sharing what you’re thankful for.
Response: You're welcome! That card was too fun to pass up. Happy swapping!
Comment: I think that being married and raising a child is basically like having another full- time job, don't you? A good one, of course, but still, it's a lot of time and effort! 🙂
Response: Life is just a lot of effort!!!! But, like you said, worth it!
Comment: It does take up a lot of time being married, raising a child and working full time. Just one of those things alone, would be a reason not to join this swap!
Response: Oh, for sure... but, life would be boring, and I'd not enjoy my downtime so much!!! Thanks for the rating and heart! Happy swapping.
Comment: Yup yup yup! All those things make you indeed very busy! Hope you find some time soon to relax.
Response: Thank you!!! Somehow I'm not ugly crying yet... lol. Thanks for the rating.
