About Me

01/19/18: Well this year is not starting off well! I’ve got this horrible flu that’s going around. It is the worse I have ever had. I’ve been off work for a week because of it. That being said, I will be a few days late on some things including a couple swaps. Which has never happened and I trust my Swap- not friends will be patient with me as I try to catch up. Thank you.

12/12/17: Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all my Swap-Bot Pals!. It's been a rough and trying year and I'm looking forward to the New Year! Its a sheer joy being involved with Swap-bot and meeting new friends. Here's to a blessed 2018!

11/05/17: the holidays will be here sooner than we think & im feeling very stressed this year. I can’t really work in my craftroom the way I want as there are some electrical issues. Hopefully that will be fixed soon and I can get to work in my thanksgiving & Christmas items. I haven’t even used my aqua Cuttlebug yet! I have been purging a lot thanks to my wonderful members in my Destash Mania Group. If you would like to either purge your items or stick up on some, be sure to check our awesome group out!

05/07/17: Well I'm back from my vacation. Had a wonderful time. Thank you to all my Officers for their expert handling of my groups. Catching up on all my thank yous for gifts & trades. If I missed you, please let me know but give me this week for catch-up. Changed my avitar to my cat Duchess. Isn't she gorgeous!

04/20/17: I will be on vacation from 04/29 to 05/08 and will only be popping in now and then. All of my Groups will be handled by the Officers. I will have all my Swaps completed before I leave.

11/27/16: I can't believe it's been a year since I joined Swap-bot. What a wonderful experience it has been. I have learned so much and developed such wonderful friendships. Thank you to everyone for their continued support and guidance.

Hi! My name is Sunny. I am active in crafts, scrapbooking & gift baskets. I have my own business called Basket Works where I create customized gift baskets. I don't ship just yet and haven't ventured to the Website deal--but, some day! Although I am not as good as some people at crafting, I enjoy everything I do.

My Mother is my inspiration. She just picked up scrapbooking at 83, and she's quite good at it. My best friend, Teresa, is an extremely talented jewelry maker who also inspires me. Another dear friend, Mari is suffering from Alzheimer's. It's so sad. She was such an extremely talented artist. She made the most beautiful wreaths and floral arrangements and I'm proud to say I have many samples of her work. Also some of her lovely floral paintings. She's in a home now and doesn't really remember me or her skills, but I still love her and hopes she finds some peace soon.

My favorite famous inspiration is Martha Stewart. She's amazingly talented and always trying to come up with new innovative goodies for us crafters to try!

In addition to my gift baskets, I make pin cushions, frame jewelry displays & inspiration boards. My favorite crafting items are: maps; cloth tape measures; sheet music; washi tape; glitter; paint; stencils of any kind; ribbon & lace & frames of any kind! & heart themed items.

I love country music, polka dots, watching HGTV & Homicide Hunter. I can't get enough of I Brake for Yard Sales & Flea Market Flip. I've also just started watching Garage Sale Gold. Oh yes, and I love the WWE.

I collect mini guitars, guitar picks, shot glasses & thimbles. I love cupcakes, polka dots & vintage pictures. I also love WWE Wrestling & watching it with my mother. I recently went to WrestleMania in San Jose. It was amazing.

My favorite colors are teal, aqua & Tiffany blue, yellow & red--but especially the teal, aqua & Tiffany blues. I love things in these colors in tea towels; note cards; pencil cases; note books; storage for small items like sequins; and of course anything handmade by the oh so talented Swap Bot Peeps!

My favorite sayings are: Get over it & It is what it is.

My favorite things are cupcakes (to eat as well as crafting & décor!), skittles, very cherry jelly bellies, Hershey kisses, Andes mints, Minions, My Melody, Tweety and supporting other crafters!

I love to upcycle. This is my new favorite thing. I just love to take something that has been beaten up over time and make it beautiful again.

My favorite thing to alter are frames, whether cabinet door frames or picture frames. There are so many different things you can do with them!

I live in San Francisco--the beautiful city by the bay!. I love it here! The weather is wonderful 80% of the time. Although Fall is my favorite time of year for weather. I swear no matter where I go Fall is beautiful.in every state! However, Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. Love it, love it, love it. Everything about it. From the beautiful lights to the wonderful smells. At work, I decorate my desk (Reception desk) with Christmas & Hanukkah (owners are Jewish). At home, we have a white Christmas tree and we decorate it with red cardinals--love that look. And, although I shop all year round for gifts, I still love to go to the shops throughout the holidays. And, oh my God, those Holiday Craft Fairs! Love them! Always get into trouble. My friends laugh at me when I say I have a certain budget--who am I kidding! Lol!

I love snowflakes & snowmen (& women): ornaments, stickers, crafted items--doesn't matter. I do a holiday wonderland theme in my bedroom/office every year so maybe that's where this comes from. Especially Snowbabies--love these little guys. They are a big part of my display.

I am a fanatic diet Pepsi drinker. I love vanilla lattes & coffee in general. I do occasionally like a good cup of tea, Darjeeling is my favorite. But I also like Earl Grey. I hate fruit flavored ones; however, I used to drink a Strawberry black tea, that was amazing. But, alas, I can't find it anywhere. I also enjoy a good cup of hot cider. Yummy.

I am just starting out with journaling so I would love anything to do with that!

My dislikes: Eucalyptus or apple green smelling things. I don't like coconut or raisins. I love Vanilla. I never get tired of that scent. I hate bullying of any kind.

I am a big supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness; Autism Speaks; the Alzheimer's Foundation & Animal Rights Groups (I will not tolerate violence against animals!).

Comment: Love the pens you sent and that zipper pouch is great too! Thank you ☺️💌
Response: Glad you like the pens & the pouch. Mailing pens are rather tricky especially since the teal one doesn’t one in a package so I thought of the pouch. Enjoy!

Dear Sunny, thank you so much for the package full of lovely surprises you chose for me, and especially the sweet pin cushion that you made just for me. ♥ It makes me smile and think of you whenever I look at it. I'm having a lot of fun working on your binder (super-sturdy 2"), too, and I love your idea of sharing homemade treats especially made for our swap-bot friends. Happy New Year! ♥
