About Me

I am a stay at home mom who loves arts and crafts. When we recently bought a new house I was so excited to have a room to set up as a craft studio.I love that with crafts you can create custom decor and items that are exclusively your own.

I like paper crafts, sewing, and sketching. I like to use recyclables and scraps in my crafts. I also love to plan parties and make custom invitations.

I love Legos. Since I was a little girl Legos have alway been my favorite toy. When my nephews were young they would come to visit and ask to take my Legos home. I would tell them "I am saving them for my kids". Well now I have a daughter of my own and have recently started to build with my Legos again. I tell her that I am saving them for my grandchildren. :)

I like to cook but only for special occasions. I like having dinner parties. If you come to my house on any week day you would most likely be served cereal for dinner.

I studied to be an Architectural drafter. Worked in that field for 5 yrs. When I married my husband I became a house wife and then a stay at home mom when our daughter was born. Never could have guessed how much I would love it. I still enjoy architure though.

I like to travel, though have never traveled outside the Unites States. I am a country girl at heart, but really enjoy visiting big city. My favorite so far are Alanta, Chicago, and D.C.

Favorite Crafts

Paper Crafts: DIY cards, 3-D paper crafting, party invitations

Sewing: Home decor, bags, crafts

Sketching: I recently started a sketching journal, in which I keep memories in the form of sketches.

En-caustic Painting: Painting with colored wax.

Party Planning: Custom decoration, favors

Kids Crafting: I like to do crafts with my daughter and her friends.

Digital Scrapbooking

I love trying new techniques. Since joining swap-bot I have been watching lots of You Tube Videos to learn new thing.

Favorite Books

I love to read. I like to listen to audio books while I craft. I love the Anne of Green Gable series. I like mystery, suspense, historical romance, and sci-fi books. I like books by Agatha Christie.

Wish List



Odd little trinkets of any kind,

One of a kind things,

Anything handmade,

Paper punches,

Buttons (I have a giant jar full),


Cute Whimsical Fish (we once went to visit Atlanta and went to a historical home there call the Swan house. In each room a swan was hidden some where. I love this idea and choose to do this in my home. So I collect fish to hide through out my home.),

Scottie dogs,

My favorite color is yellow. I love warm colors.



Anything to girly,

Pastel colors-pinks, light blues (but feel free to send me anything),

Creepy things: Witches, wizard, snakes, spiders, etc.,

I am one of Jehovah's Witness:I don't celebrate holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Valentines Day, Fourth of July, Birthdays. If possible would prefer not to receive items that have these as a theme.
