About Me

I will be on vacation May 13th - May 22nd. I will rate any received swaps on my return.


I live with my husband and dog Lucille in Illinois, right outside of Chicago. We like to go adventuring as a family. We spend a lot of time outside in the nicer weather hiking and exploring. We do a lot of road trips and drive cross country to national parks to explore. Lucille is luckily a good traveler as she wants to be where her people are.

I like to craft stuff. I like papercrafts like making ATCS, Pocket Letters, and cards. I like fiber crafts like knitting and crocheting. I like thread crafts like sewing and cross stitch.

Sometimes I do non-craft stuff like cooking and yoga, and running. I even ran a marathon once! But lets face it, crafting is where my love is. I do obedience training with Lucille too. We are not into competitions or anything at this point. Just looking to have a well mannered dog.

Other random about me stuff

I love rich saturated colors with lots of black and gray. Rich blues, purples, and emerald greens make my heart pitter patter. I am not such a huge fan of pastels or neons. It is ok to send me items not in my favorite colors. I will still use them or send them on in another swap.

I am not into cats. I have a big German Shepherd Dog (yes she is the German Shedder). She is my baby. I also have 2 fish tanks with fresh water/tropical fish.

I don't really love glittery stuff that sheds everywhere. IF the glitter sticks to it's intended surface that is ok. A glittery greeting card wouldn't drive me crazy.

I don't drink coffee or tea! Or eat fish (fish are pets not food).

I like to read supernatural romance type of novels. Like stuff by Ilona Andrews and Patricia Briggs. Give me a werewolf, a vampire and a magic user, please! I also love JIm Butcher's Dresden files. If only the next book would come out soon, I have been waiting forever!

I am non-religious. A religious card or stamp would not bug me. But holidays like Christmas are about family for me! I am not offended by religious imagery or art, but I am not wanting to receive sermons or religious writing.

Please don't talk politics to me! No really. Just don't do it. This would offend me much more then any religious talk or item.


Favorite Television

I don't watch a lot of TV. I don't have cable so everything I watch is on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Disney+.

Doctor Who is always a favorite! I love all Marvel movies/tv shows.

Goodies I would enjoy

I love things like stickers, washi, paper (scrapbook or other items with pretty pictures), Collage paper, tissue papers, old book pages, old photographs, postcards, notecards, tags, die cuts, stamped images, stamps (used or not), and I will add more stuff as I think of it!

I have a new die cutting machine, so if you have duplicate dies and want to send them to me I would love that.

I really am happy to receive all swaps, please don't worry too hard about getting me something that exactly fits my profile! Swaps are for fun not stressing! Sometimes the unexpected item is the most fun.


I always send out my swaps! If you haven't received anything from me please let me know. I seriously have anxiety and worry about this a lot. I cannot control what happens with the mail and would feel awful if my swap does not arrive. Swapping should be fun and I wouldn't want my swap partner to feel like they were forgotten!

I have a postal scale and a thickness measuring tool. i try to be accurate with my postage. If I have come up short please let me know so I can make it up to you and also so I can learn from my mistakes!

PS If I haven't left a rating for you, it means I didn't receive a swap. I rate immediately upon opening an envelope or reading a PC.


Comment: Thank you for the fun vintage theme PC! Your great grandmother's ring is very precious, some of the best vintage things are not the most valuable ones!

Comment: Thank you for the very, very cool bird ATC. And thank you for sharing how you made it. That gives me ideas to learn from.

Comment: Your art cards are spectacular. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your talent, which is incredibly inspiring. The flower card is so nice with all the metallics and your bonus coin is just super. All the detail and textures on both are great. Thank you so much! A favourite swap!

AmySue2 rated for CPG April 22 Senders Choice PC - US on Apr 18, 2022
Comment: Poor daffodils! Our weather is all over the place, too.
Response: Somehow they are still surviving! They are very resilient.
Comment: I have a firm belief that Winter to Spring is the menopause of seasons, warm to freezing in the span of hours. We had an 80 F day just a couple weeks ago, and the next day it was 40 degrees colder. Rude!
Response: OMG that is a great way of putting it. It definitely is the menopause of seasons! We just got another dusting of snow and in a couple days it will be in the 80s.

debbiespoms rated for I SPY #22 on Apr 16, 2022
Comment: Hello Jackie! Received your PC of Willis Tower. I do remember it used to be called the Sears tower. I wonder why they choose to change the name?! Because Sears stores are still around yet. We have in Towanda, PA., about 30 miles from here in Canton, (PA). Although I admit I've not been to that store in years. I just order online anymore. Esp. with the Viruses still out there. Hope you have a wonderful Easter!
Response: It is weird. We still have Sears stores around here too!

BusyB rated for CPG Where I Live PC - Global on Apr 14, 2022
Comment: Thank you for the Illinois postcard and cool postage! I could only imagine the traffic. I thought traffic here was busy but when we were in NY in 2018, I realized it could be far worse. Wow, crazy there!
Response: Traffic in the city can be absolutely awful. Even in the suburbs where I live it can be bad. My 6 mile drive to work is usually about 25 minutes.
