About Me


I love to scrapbook and make cards. I try to craft every day! I am always surfing blogs looking for inspiration. I love ATCs, Smash Books and am just starting to dip my hat into mixed media with canvases, tags etc.. I make a lot of cards and I'm really trying to get back into scrapbooking so that I can use up my supplies!

I work full time and part time and I also home school my son, so I keep pretty busy. Crafting relaxes me. I enjoy traveling, country music, movies and have a serious Diet Coke and flavored M&M addiction.

Favorite Crafts

I love large images from various companies that I can color with my copics and use for my cards. I enjoy using my Cuttlebug and my cricut to design with. Some of my fave companies are Echo Park, Doodlebug, PhotoPlay Paper, and Bella Blvd. I am a big fan of the 6x6 paper packs. I also love using diecuts, washi and stamped images on my cards. I'm just starting to dabble in mixed media, so I like playing around with gelattos, sprays, inks, and the like. I use anything in terms of embellishments although I am not a big fan of glitter. I don't mind stickers if they are from the larger scrapbooking lines but not so much like Sandylion or $$ store ones.
I pretty much scrap with any kind of color so that is never an issue.

Things I'd like to receive

Some of the things I like are:

6x6 Patterned papers


vintage button

vintage embellishments

stamped images to color


die cuts for cards

shaped or large brads

old book pages for mixed media use

Christmas embellishments

anything Tim Holtz

embossing folders (or embossed pieces of cardstock for cardmaking)


ATC images

Non craft related:

chocolate (except liquor filled) my favorite is Quality Street

I'm a very big Jane Austen fan!

anything Green Arrow or Supernatural

fruity teas

flavored hot chocolate


Flavored M&Ms

Quotes/sayings for my inspiration board

Favorite Television

I love CSI. The Chicagos (PD, Fire, Med), Supernatural and Green Arrow. I also love Criminal Minds, The Equalizer, all 3 FBIs, SWAT, Law & Order. I watch a lot of streaming shows as well, like Emily In Paris, Fate: The Winx Saga, Bridgerton of course, Only Murders in the Building, Evil, Shadowhunters, the Witcher.

Things I don't really care for

The Written Word

For many years I had kept a journal and after finding them again, I realized how much I missed writing. Not anything fancy or novel-esque, but just writing because I felt like it. Sometimes journal entries, sometimes short stories, sometimes just a few lines here and there. I love round robin stories! Passing it around to people, and seeing how a few lines takes a story into a whole different direction than what you could have ever thought possible....


I love fruity teas! No so much the basics like earl grey, chamomile or orange pekoe....I would love to try one of your favorites or something that is from your country! :)

Favorite Books

I love romance novels and my favorite authors are Julia Quinn, Ella Quinn, Jude Deveraux, Catherine Coulter, Sophia Nash. Sherrilyn Kenyon, Riley Edwards, Elle James, Susan Stoker, Caitlyn O'Leary.

I also enjoy Nora Roberts trilogies, Sherrilyn Kenyon, JR Ward.

Favorite Movies

I am a really huge movie fan and I am partial to romcoms and 80s movies. I also love SciFi. The only thing I don't really watch are horror/slasher.

Hello, Tammy! For the swap "What Book are you reading?", I am currently reading "Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone" by Brene Brown. It is a quite wonderful book about the importance and power of belonging to yourself. She's a great author and I would highly recommend anything by her! Bonus: I'm listening to "Anansi Boys" by Neil Gaiman and it is fabulous! Amanda

mysmashbooklife on Feb 8, 2020:

Hi! This is for the swap: What Book are you reading?

I am reading Dirty Girls by Lily white. I read a lot of dark romance and this author writes a lot of those books.

Have a nice day.

Really not sure why, but I'm having a horrible time finding images that will actually show up in comments! I'm not flaking, but begging for a little grace on your carrot cake photos, sorry, I'm pretty new to profile deco & had no idea I'd have such a struggle!
