A little about me...

I am Yvette, also known as The Bead Diva. I love art glass beads, buttons, baubles and teaching people how to make jewelry. I am a wife, mother, daughter and friend living in Texas. While I enjoy the amenities of the big city life of Dallas close by, I yearn for the peaceful and calmness of nature at a lake or on the beach. I really enjoy nature. I enjoy traveling and have been to Europe, Russia, Egypt, China, Japan, Mexico, Canada and to 45 of the 50 states. I love Pinning but it gets me in trouble. Too many things I see that I want to do! I enjoy the holidays and planning things. I've been told I am a go getter and self motivator. I am a full time caregiver for my mother. I really don't read a lot because it makes me sleepy so when I do I read inspirational wisdom and things that relate to happiness. I am very interested in comparative religions, peace and compassion for all mankind.

Favorite crafts and hobbies...

I do anything that ends in "ing". I just can't do them all so I try to focus. I like quilting, beading, scrap-booking, cross-stitching, cooking, gardening and now swapping. I admire upcycled items. I wish I had the talent and tools to convert the items I have ideas for. I shop in thrift stores for lost treasures and love to go junkin with friends. I've just started creating Inchies and ATCs. The first few I've ever created were for swaps - I can see this becoming my latest art/craft endeavor.

My collections...

Honestly I collect too many things but here are a few of my favorites:

Mother of pearl or antique glass buttons, Old postage stamps (non-self adhesive), Sea glass and handmade bookmarks.

Things I like...

In no particular order:

ATC's and inchies, Birds (hummingbirds in particular), Riesen chocolates, Street photography and nature photography, Flowers, Fairy gardens, Anything handmade, Postage stamps, Sea glass, Hand made sun catchers, Broadway shows, staying at B&Bs, flower seed packets

Things I can live without...

Things I prefer not to receive:

Knick knacks, Dust catchers & souvenirs, Scented products (I'm allergic), Kid project supplies, Cat things, Foam crafts, Mint flavor candies, Religious items,

Favorite Colors...

I really like all colors but my favorites are blues, purples and violets.

Private swaps...

I am open to private swaps. If we have similar interests, send me a message.

Thoughts on swaps...

I like being creative and I put time, energy and thoughtfulness into each swap. I look forward to receiving the same if you are sending me a swap. I am NOT a flaker. If you didn't receive your swap from me please send me a message and let me know so I can track or re-send. Please have the courtesy to rate me promptly so I can participate in other swaps. Swaps are about having fun and "girls just want to have fun"!

Yvette, thank you so much for the beautiful RAK envelope flip book! I was afraid that I'd missed a swap...you're right!...but you cleared that right up and I want you to know that you made my day (oh, so much more than a day)! Your envelope flip book is seriously beautiful, chock full of little hidden places, full of gorgeous artwork and treats and happy thoughts! I love it, and will not rest until I host an envelope flip book swap...with yours as the "master"! Astonishingly lovely...I am in awe.
