About Me

I am a 40 year old mother of 3 (4 if you include my furry baby; a 68 pound Boxador named Luna) I have been scrapbooking and paper crafting since before it was popular but am so glad the hobby caught on!!!

I also dabble in other crafting occasionally but limit myself to paper crafts because hubby thinks I am taking over too much of the house! LOL

I am REALLY into Geocaching and it has become my new addiction! If you have not tried it, I HIGHLY recommend! So much fun! Check it out at www.geocaching.com


I work part-time as a stitch-fix stylist and I work full-time as an Administrative department assistant for a local children's service organization. See my stitch fix link above! You'll love it! It is a clothing subscription box that connects you with a personal stylist and customizes each box to your sizes and preferences!

I like to garden (zone 5b/6a) and I love to make cards for all seasons and events! My favorite being Fall and Halloween but Christmas is a close second! I am known in my family for my handmade Christmas cards each year.

I use a Day-Timer 7 ring planner daily and I enjoy decorating it and making it my own!

I have a horrible sweet tooth and enjoy candy (see wishlist below), cupcakes and anything lemon or pumpkin flavored!

Favorite Music

I know that I do not like Country or Polka! I like punk pop such as All American Rejects, Good Charlotte, Blink-182 and those types of bands.

My favorite movies include the Back to the Future trilogy, The'Burbs, The Princess Bride, all the Die Hard movies, all of the Anne of Green Gables movies and more!




  • Don't stress out about what you send me too much! I appreciate every thought and effort of a well put together package and will never be too picky or rate badly if there is something I can not use or do not like (just as long as it meets swap requirements). I will either give it to my family to enjoy or pass it along to someone else!

  • I am always interested in doing private swaps, so please PM me if you would like to do one!


  • I strive to rate the same day I receive a package/letter!

  • Please note that I drop packages and letters at the post office on a regular basis and mark them sent. I live in a small town with one tiny post office. Since they have very limited hours, mail might not get sent out that same day I drop it off. Packages have been known to sit in the office for 2 or 3 days before being sent out (ie. if I leave it there on a Thursday in the late afternoon, it gets processed Friday, will sit all weekend and get sent out either Monday or Tuesday).

I even love the card! heehee Thanks for a fun package, and congrats about your daughter's graduation!! Cheers!
