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 18 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.

what I pledged



Benny is 16 years old. He's my St. Patrick's Day boy, born in the middle of a snowstorm :) He has low-functioning, severe classic Autism and is, for the most part, non-verbal. He loves anything to do with the Wiggles (old Wiggles with Greg/Jeff/Anthony/Murray, not the new ones) and Elmo.

He really loves The Jungle Book and The Lion King.....we've been through about 20 books of each of them as he keeps ripping them apart, so if you have an extra your child no longer wants, he'd always love an extra copy to read/destroy ;)

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

I can't crochet to save my life, but would swap anything I can make if someone would crochet me a pair of fingerless gloves ;) - Thank you to @ladeebug for the beautiful gloves!

Puzzle pieces and anything else to do with Autism.

And I am completely OBSESSED with 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, so if sending jewelry, no copper please. 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.


Comment: Thank you for all the wonderful "Final Space" goodies! I love the catstronaut bag. I decided to hang it on my wall. It's such a neat piece of art. Gary is hanging out with my Starfire plush made from the same pattern (love him!). The patches are too cute and I love the KVN painting. I can't wait until our next swap together!

Comment: I LOVE your magpie journal! The cover is so bright and cheery. I adore the pages you painted, especially the raccoon. I really enjoyed reading all your written pages as well. I cannot believe your Netflix list! That is insanity! Thank you so much for a wonderful swap.

Comment: I just opened up the beautiful purple tote you made! Wow! It may just be the nicest thing anyone's made me from Swapbot in all the time I've been here! I will use it all the time! Even my husband was like "Wow, who made the pretty bag?" And he never notices anything!
Response: I'm so happy you (and hubby) like it!

keahirada rated for SECRET SANTA on Dec 7, 2019
Comment: Thank you for the beautifully wrapped presents! I love them! The painting you did is absolutely beautiful and i feel so spoiled getting a handmade gift. It sounds silly but just the fact that you used multiple colors to make the stick arms shows how much thought and care you put into it. Im going to put it up and put the ornament on my door. So cute! Thank you as always! Anyone who gets you as a partner is very lucky!
Response: I'm so happy you like it. I love to make presents for everyone, so I was happy to make him for you. :) Merry Christmas!
Comment: OMG! Dinosaurs!!! I love the bronto painting! It's in the top two of my favorite paintings that you've done for me (up there with the shark). The T-Rex plushie is sooooo cute!!! It looks professionally made. You did a kickass job! He's so soft and cuddly! You really made my day! Thank you so much!
