About Me

I always make sure that I mail on time in swaps so if for some reason you do not get something that I sent...please please email me. I will always email back so we can figure it out. Same goes for ratings, if I have not rated you and I should have it, please email me. I try to record everything when I get it. I will not rate until I know the situation.

I am a Wife and Mom of two boys and one girl. I have always loved to paint using watercolor and mixed media. I got into letterboxing a while ago and started carving stamps and homeade logbooks then planting them in my area. From there, I have been part of LTCs where one image has to be a hand carved stamp. I have been involved in a number of swaps on another site. Proud Mom of four dogs - 2 wire haired dachshunds, 1 half dauchshund and half beagle, and 1 half terrier and half pointer.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading comic books, graphic novels and crime novels. I always have a book checked out from the library...actually multiple books. No matter what time I head to bed, I have to read. Needless to say, when the story gets good, next thing I know its 3 am. Totally fixated on the Wizard of Oz graphic novels now.

Favorite Television

I watch mysteries, crime, suspense, scary not gore horror movies, football, hockey.

Blacklist, Player, Casual, Walking dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Gilmore girls, Extant, Under the dome, Castle, Grimm, Arrow, Flash, Big Brother, Mr. Robot, X-files, Sienfeld and others. I get bored easily watching tv so I am usually doing something while watching a show.

Favorite Crafts

Creating carved stamps for letterboxing ,postal letterboxing, creating LTCs (letterboxing trading cards), Artist Trading Cards, Inchie Trading Cards, Twinchie trading cards, Homemade PC, Vintage PC, Vintage Tin signs, homemade Christmas ornaments.

I have created multiple themed cards for LTC swaps with at least one carved image. Sometimes the trackers can get as large at 26 identical cards to make with a deadline. That can be challenging but I prefer about 20 or less.

I enjoy ATC creations with history,vintage, coke/pepsi girl vintage inspired, old bicycles, book pages, zentangles, birds and ...and...haha I have started an art journal and it is fun to just go with it. It is addicting and something fun to do while watching a movie or listening to music.

likes / dislikes

I have never been a fan of cutsie. I like things that are cute but not like say Precious Moments or sparkly with puff balls. I like puppies but realistic types of cute.

I like fall colors, leaves, pumpkins, trees of all seasons, birds, landscapes, ocean, mountains, some beach.

I love blues, browns, reds, purples.

I collect old postcards and original art ones. I prefer naked postmarked ones. I enjoy the PC to look well traveled but not ripped or ruined.

Love love coffee! Dunkin donuts and Tim Horton are delicious. Not a caramel fan. For non-flavor I prefer donut shop blend in most coffee. Hate instant coffee!

Cocoa is wonderful. Add some marshmallows and yum....

I really enjoy tea - really like chai and the spicy ones and strawberry but NOT peach. Love trying all kinds that I cannot get at the market but country stores. Loose flavored teas in tins are amazing. I like unique tins!

I love to read. Soft covered books worn well but not falling apart. I enjoy mysteries and some urban fantasy. Bookmarks are great and I love collecting those that are unique and handmade too!

I love recipes and trying new recipes. I prefer 4x6 recipe cards in a swap.

Hand carved stamps are preferred but love unique store bought stamps.

Always want: Dies, stencils, watercolor paints, crayola twistables, copics, designed tissue papers, tags, twine, paper stickers, heavy cardstock, binary trading cards, unique playing cards, ornaments, vintage pictures and sayings, washi, stamped vintage design images, cardinals, squirrels, acorns.

Love creativity and I don't care if its not perfect but effort showed. Never know how good you can be until you try. Effort is everything. A++++ for effort.
