About Me

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 & dΓ©cor!), 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: Goodness, Sunny--what a jackpot of a destash!! I squealed out loud when I saw the beautiful bundle of journal cards--they're already inspiring me to make a flipbook β™₯ Some other favorites are the stripey papers, the coloring pages, the packs of zentangles, the washi stickers and the very cool tags. The double-sided tape and mounting squares will definitely be put to good use right away. Some great gifty things for friends, too. Thanks for a delightful swap package and a great group!
