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 16 years now to my sweet husband.

family2014

I love anything purple, hedgehog, tigers, penguins, 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.

Benny

Benny is 13 years old. He's my little 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

Charms/ribbons/beads for making dotees

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. ;)

minions!

Dislikes

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 :)

Allergies

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.

Flakers

Sadly, I have been flaked on...... I was hoping to not ever have to put this up here, but it has happened :(

Comment: Wow. Just, wow! Thank you for this amazing package full of GotG thingies! I loved it all; the toys, the comic, the wonderful painting you made! (all those stars, so pretty!!). And I must admit to making a high-pitched screech of delight at the Yondu doll ... <3 This is one of the most awesome swaps I've received while being on swap-bot, so thank you so much! I hope you have a wonderful day! I'm off to read the comic now! :D
Response: My goodness, what a sweet rating! I'm so happy that you liked it all. I must admit, I was a little worried about the painting, but I really wanted to make at least one thing for you. It was a lot of fun painting that, especially the stars ;)

Comment: Thank you so much for my beautiful Princess Leia doll. I love her silky dress. It is so pretty and I love the short sleeves. I never even thought about using ribbon for hair before. So clever and gorgeous. Definitely a fitting tribute to Ms. Fisher. Thanks for the goodies for the girls and my rockin' sloth. A wonderful swapping experience as usual. 😊

He is going straight upstairs to watch it. He said "How did they know?" LOL! Thank you so much for swapping with me for the kids Birthdays. We will have to swap again at Christmas. Take care :)

Comment: Naomi, thank you so much for the super-cute-junky-long-legged owl! I love him! Think I'll set him on the couch for now and he can hide in the pillows until he gets used to a new home!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you like him. He was a lot of fun to make :)

Comment: Sorry that it took me a little while to rate, but life has been rough lately. I love the the dragon egg patch (even though the mother of the dragons stole my Seth for a while IRL; that's what kept me from watching GoT--I was THAT jealous--pretty insane huh?). Your patch reminds me of a dragon's egg I saw on Think Geek that I thought was really cool, so I'm thrilled to have it. It must've taken a lot of patience. Thank you so much. Also, thank you for the Leia Tsum Tsum. I really appreciate it. Carrie Fisher's death hit me pretty hard, so the Tsum Tsum is really special to me. Thanks for another amazing swap!

Wow girl! This Pokémon patch is so amazing! Rayna is a huge Pokémon fan. I'm constantly driving her around for Pokémon Go (yes, sad) she stole the patch from me before I could look closely at it. She said "it's broken" b/c the white felt moved. Then realized it opened up (as did I at the same time) both of our jaws dropped. Wow!!! The letter was cute too. She read it to me as I was driving. She played with and hugged the patch the entire way to softball practice. She lit up like Christmas morning. Thank you so so very much! Hugs

Thanks! It's really hard for me to do creepy. It always turns out cute.

I was browsing my deviantART gallery and looking at all my drawings (thinking about how much I want an iPad Pro so I can draw again). Look at what I came across. Do you recognize this character?
