About Me

me & benny

I am mom to a sweet, special boy with Autism. He's my world and when I'm not busy with him, I love crafting and learning new things. I've been married for 23 years now to my sweet husband.


I love anything purple, hedgehog, tigers, pigs, pumpkins and zombies (interesting combo, huh?

new pic

Purple is my favorite color, all kinds of purple, however, I also like pinks, brighter blues, kelly greens and black/white/red combos.

I dabble in a little of everything, including painting, sewing both machine and by hand, duct tape crafts, quilting, scrapbooking (digital) and more that I can't think of right now. I'm also always up for learning new crafts.

I love making and receiving handmade items, so chances are you'll receive at least one handmade item in a swap from me. If you prefer not handmade, please pm me ;)

If I don't send my swaps early, I will ALWAYS send on time. I rate for every swap that I receive and would ask that I be rated as well, please. It really sucks to send something that you've put time and effort into and get no response from whom you've sent to.

Anything purple is cool

A poppet! I love these dolls and would love to trade for one. I would trade anything I can make for a poppet!

I love handbags, especially handmade

"Teesha Moore" patches....I love these and would love to have others' artwork to make a bag from them (can find them on craftster.org and I have a few that I've made posted on my flickr, also have a board dedicated to them on my pinterest)

Pictures/drawings/stuffies/jewelry of hedgehogs, tigers or cute piggies

Grogu/Mandalorian ANYTHING - my newest and biggest OBSESSION!

Puzzle pieces and anything else to do with Autism.

And I am in love the Minions (little yellow guys) from the movie Despicable Me. ;)



Banana, coconut, really strong scents, make-up, hello kitty, postcards, scrapbooking stuff (I have way too much and I only do digital now)

Seeds....I live in an apartment and can't grow anything anyways.

I can't wear earrings so please don't send any....I wouldn't be able to use them.

That's about it :)


VERY allergic to CATS/Dogs, (please let me know if you have any so I can watch for hair)

Cigarette smoke (I understand that I might have a partner who smokes and just ask that if you do smoke, could you just send me a heads up letting me know?)

I recently discovered I'm allergic to copper, just in case I join a jewelry swap no copper. Also a newly discovered allergy (oh joy)....I am SEVERELY allergic to FLAX so if sending fabrics, skip the linen please as it MAY contain flax fibers. I can't even touch it.
