About Me

Eclipse 2017 was awesome where I live!!! I will never ever forget it! Can't explain the wonderfully strange feeling I got during 99% eclipse. The shadows were strange and despite not having glasses it was so awesome to spend the time with my sweet husband of 36 years (our anniversary day after eclipse was hazy) It was an unusually sunny morning, first one in days, we were so lucky!! He used binoculars and simple props to film the different stages of the eclipse with shadow. Hubby made a video and unfortunately his camera memory ran out before he could get the weird shadowing on the side of our house. He's going to help me make a video of my footage. It was so EPIC!

PLEASE kindly remember to rate me. I always send my swaps and try to send something my partner would like. I love reading your profiles! I always send my swaps, rate for swaps received and communicate with my partners. Please do the same! I live in a metro city so I try to send swaps at the same time so I have less trips to the post office. Oftentimes I mail swaps in the evening or weekends. The lobby is not open 24/7 at my post office and pick up times are not as often as they use to be, but when I click I mailed, I have actually mailed! Please keep that in mind. Thank you.

Favorite Crafts

I have tried a lot of art and crafts in my life. While I am no expert I do have an eclectic style and appreciation of art in many forms. Handmade is always appreciated and treasured.

*My newest obsession are Julie Nutting Paper Dolls, I love them! I bought my first stamp in 2013 after a class and didn't do much with the dolls until 2015. I have collected almost the entire collection and met Julie herself in June 2016 at a retreat. So awesome! I hope to attend another class with her someday.

*Tim Holtz and Graphic 45 products have became some of my favorites! I tend to hoard the supplies but I'm starting to use and share them. :) And learning how to use them. Pinterest is my best friend for help. lol

I do love drawing, painting, sewing and quilting, (my Grandmother was an amazing quilter) collage, art and junk journals. I also enjoy inchies, ATCs, and small altered matchboxes. I like the different sized tiny and unique matchboxes I find sometimes at the most random places. Fun to collect!

  • I love anything teensy and unusual, little boxes and I collect tins, miniatures; especially paper miniatures Just have a thang about tiny teeny things. hehe

  • Washi tape, my collection has grown! lol

  • Love die cuts and use them in my journals

  • I enjoy "junkin'" for art junk /vintage treasures!

  • collecting ATCS since 2006. Have some beautiful art in my collection!

  • unusual and interesting papers of all kinds!

  • collage and fabric art

  • embroidery, cross stitch, needle felting, wool roving or wool fibers

  • paper dolls

  • I love all colors but some of my favorites are blue, pink, purple, aqua, and autumn colors

  • love all animals! forest/woodland creatures, sea creatures, African animals, pets. I have two cats.

  • love the sea and all it's many beauties

  • quilling and origami

  • interesting metal embellishments

  • hearts (collected since I was a teenager)

  • Halloween, Valentines Day and Christmas are my favorite holidays. I love skulls!

*Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s Rock n Roll, Dance, Fairies, Butterflies, Birds, Nature, Retro, Quirky and Colorful, Skulls, Quotes and Poetry, Cats and Dogs, Zentangles, Humor, Repurposing and Recycling

  • I love vintage ephemera!!! 1960's and earlier, vintage textiles, fabrics and scraps, sewing and hand stitching items, vintage magazines, cookbooks, children's books, readers and song books, old medical books, geography or encyclopedia pages, wallpaper and wrapping paper, vintage ads and pamphlets, sewing patterns from 1960s or earlier, vintage rhinestones and costume jewelry, old type written letters and documents, forms, envelopes or postcards,

Favorite Television

My husband and I watch a lot of TV through the week in the evenings because it's the best way to relax together after our long days....Big Bang Theory, Survivor (since the beginning) and one of my faves American Pickers! Use to love CSI (with Grissom) Firefly, Bones and Grimm. Sad to say some of my favorites are no more. Fave movies: Grease, Ghost, Dirty Dancing, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and Avatar. Old shows: I Love Lucy, That Girl, Gilligan's Island, Mork and Mindy, Welcome Back Kotter


PLEASE DON'T SEND....(unless it's a swap that I specifically signed up for) I don't need them as I have so much in my stash already. Thanks! My list is short. As it should be. :) I thought I would update this section for Stocking Stuffer Swaps.

*Teacher reward stickers

*scraps of paper. I have so much of the scrapbook and cardstock scraps. I really don't need more.

*blank recipe cards, packages of note cards or memo pads. I have too many!! Lol

*brads or eyelets as I have plenty

*glitter, any, but I do I LOVE glitter in art that you send. I just have a big stash already.

*I don't care for little girl or cutsey lip glosses or make up. I also have very sensitive skin and scented ones are the worst!


Just want to say thank you to all these kind people for being an angel! :) If I could give you hearts for your sweetness, I would!

Comment: oops sorry I didn't rate earlier, I sure thought I had. figured I was going to come here to rate you and fine out I just hadn't clicked the rate button.

That is what February is all about, thanks again

Comment: I looked forward to your journal. It was interesting to turn the pages. Thank you. You are in my league. I made mine strictly about winter. I thought that was our subject.
Response: Betty, I'm so glad you like your journal. I didn't think it was suppose to be just about winter when I read the swap, but rather the time of year the date of the swap. My partner did not make hers just winter. If fact not winter all. I love it!
