About Me


I am a mom of an adorable little rescued shih-tzu named Madeline (Maddie for short), a Maltese/Pomeranian named Teddy and an American Eskimo/Pomeranian named Mya. My son is grown and I love all of my kids including my fur babies! I'm pretty easy going and I LOVE getting packages in the mail! I do have pets, though I try very hard to keep them away from my projects but be aware that some animal fur may get into your package! I am not allergic to anything (That I know of) so no worries on that end for me.

****I draw, paint, sew and dabble in knitting. I put a lot of time and thought into the things that I send and I appreciate the same in return. I always view my partner's profile before making something to try to make them something they would like.****

If you do not receive an item from me and you were supposed to, please let me know! I always send on time and usually early, so if it didn't make it there I will resend if you let me know :)

I'm sure there will be more as I go along, but that's a start!

Things I Love

  1. Shiny/sparkly things
  2. Books, I'm always reading
  3. Video Games
  4. Office supplies...sort of a weird obsession, I love pens and stationary.
  5. Watercolors
  6. Recipes. I like to cook, but i LOVE to bake and I love my slow cooker!.
  7. Purple it's my favorite color!
  8. Sunsets and landscapes...especially watercolor ones
  9. Coffee
  10. Tea- all kinds except plain green tea

Things I Dislike

  1. Kitsch-I know some people think it's really cool but I just don't dig it.
  2. Big jewelry-I'm more of a less is more kinda girl, diamond stud earrings are about as crazy as I get.
  3. Orange- I don't know why, but this color just rubs me the wrong way.
  4. Bittersweet chocolate
  5. No religious items please unless the swap I sign up for is specific to that.

Wish List

Things I would like...

*Patterened paper or cardstock for making cards or ATCs.
*Diecuts. I don't really like cutesy stuff, but butterflies, hummingbirds, dragonflies, flowers, boarders or tags...any of these things would be awesome!
*Steampunk embellishments and things that I could use to create steampunk items. Metal bits, springs, washers, foam that looks like any of those things that I could paint to look like metal.
*Ephemera I am getting into doing altered books and I am sorely lacking images. *"Magic" Themed items. I want to make a new journal and I'm on the lookout for some items for it. (Can be magical creatures, "magical" sparkles, pictures/diecuts of different neat looking bottles, etc.)

Thank you so much for participating in this swap. And for your lovely ATC and stickers.

I pick up gift cards - Starbucks the grocery store, Trader Joe's, REI, Target, .... for sending washi tape samples. They will up your card wrapping skills because they are stiff!
