About Me

I always rate asap after receiving a swap. If I haven't rated, I haven't received.

I'm a mother & wife. The hubs and I have been together for over 28 years. Married for 21 years. We have an 18 year old son, graduating HS early and a very energetic, crazy Labraheeler pup named Kole.

My preferred style to receive is mixed media, happy colors. My style tends to be somewhat eclectic, especially with my creative journals. I love odd and quirky! I love little trinkets and things from the 80's & 90's.

I love creative Journaling, Mail Art, Collage Fodder, Art Journaling, House shaped art & Art with Human Faces. Ephemera, rub-ons & quotes. Mixed Media. Drawing.

I have a huge rubber stamp collection and a Big Shot Machine for diecutting.

Comment: I love the jar you decorated! What did you use for the show on the lid? I also noticed that you put a decorative liner inside the lid - great detail!!! I really like the netting that you put around the jar; it looks like snow on it so its perfect! The doll hand made me laugh, and I can't wait to use all the little wooden footprints in a project! I haven't seen the B&W tobacco coupons since I was a teenager working behind the counter at my family's gas station. And I love all the colored square prong fasteners! You included so many interesting and unique treasures! Thank you so much for a fascinating swap!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Response: You're welcome! I used some fake snow from the Dollar Tree on the top. I really enjoyed decorating it! I tried to add many fun interesting things inside. Thank you for the heart rating. Merry Christmas 🎄
Comment: So many hearts for this well made jj. I love that you added nativity, hymns to the pages. Very thoughtful. And the golden label intact! So many added touches to a Christmas journal that I will treasure. Thank you so much!
Response: You're welcome! I enjoyed creating it for you! Merry Christmas 🎄

BusyB rated for YTPC: Over Page Fabric Flip USA on Nov 6, 2022
Comment: Thank you Tanya and greetings from very rainy Portland. Your awesome flip will be perfect for my Portland book! (and so the adventure begins) I appreciate your note too and the extra fabric so I can make matching clusters and tabs. November already is right! The weather is just crazy all over. Hope you have a great week ahead.

Comment: Of course I don’t mind you sending two swaps in one envelope! Especially when they are two excellent swaps. These playing cards with tabs are great. I love the images, the tabs, and the embellishments you used. Thank you so much.
