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, 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.

what I pledged



Benny is 14 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

"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)

Charms/ribbons/beads for making dotees

Pictures/drawings/stuffies/jewelry of hedgehogs or tigers

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.


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

Response: I'm so glad you like her, she was a lot of fun to make :)
Comment: I loved your journal. The zebra painting was my favorite. I loved the patches, necklace, Gumball stickers, family photos, painting of the girl and the umbrella, Benny moments, and those are just the things off the top of my head. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down (and I don’t usually do that-you know my attention span). Thank you so much!

Comment: I had so much fun opening this swap! It was like Christmas, um Easter. Some of my favorites were the gummy bear stationery, bunny butt patch, mermaid sequin pouch, Minnie pin, sloth washi, bunny statue, mini bunny ninni, and so many more! I’ve already gushed to you, so you know. Lol. We have to make this an annual thing (provided you like your egg from me.) Thanks a million!
Response: Definitely, this was so much fun to do! I'm so glad you liked it all :)

Comment: I wanted to find the right words to thank you for your paintings! We all love the fish, they are absolutely beautiful and took up residence in the dining area. We are enjoying the fairy in the study book .... and the cats! Love them, and they are standing guard in my son's room. Very peaceful! We are so overwhelmed by how fantastic and wonderful it was to discover what you created -- thank you.
Response: I'm so happy that you liked all of them. I tried to match everyone on your profile :)
