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, papercraft, junk journal 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!

Wish List

Things I would like...

Comment: Thank you for the great collection of paper you sent for this swap. I am doing a lot of collages so they will be used. I had misplaced several swaps when I received them, resulting in the late swap. So sorry for that.
Comment: Joanne, Thank you for the lovely ephemera folder; it is cute!
Comment: Thanks for the cute journal, I love the cover! Can't wait to get working in this. Happy swapping!
Comment: Hello Joanne, Thanks for your lovely flower APC.❤️
Comment: Thank you for the junk journal pages you sent. I love the texture of the pages. Thanks for the extras. I can’t wait til the end of the series so I can put my whole journal together. I’ve been stashing my pages away so at the end I can create a cover to put them in. I have to wait until i receive all the pages b/c I have to ponder what kind of journal cover I want to create according to everything i receive. All the pages has to speak to me…lol 🤣
Comment: Hello! Thanks so much for the pocket and tag that you created for me. I love your color choices. I like to two tone colors. One day you’ll have to share your secrets…lol. I was also trying to figure out the stitching you used b/c on the back(with the book page) the stitching look different from the front. 🧐😄I also like the way you accented the tag. I like the stenciling you used. I enjoy participating in your swaps. Take care and be safe!
