About Me

APRIL 26th I sincerely apologize if I have not yet rated you. I logged in just now to rate several swaps I had received over the last week. If you haven’t received a rating from me plz let me know. I am going through some personal and family related issues right now, so I humbly ask that you have some compassion and patience if you’re my Swap partner. Thank you 🙏🏼

CRAFTS: I enjoy almost anything using scrapbook paper. I love the texture, designs and colors. I really enjoy creating Pocket letters, ATC’s, mini flip books, tags as well as making my own envelopes.

I have dabbled in a whole lot of different mediums the last couple of years. Alchemy wax, paper clay, polymer clays, acrylic paints, texture pastes and so much more. It’s been so fun exploring what’s available. And thanks to YouTube, I probably never would have without those wonderful tutorials.

More recently I have been attempting to watercolor. It’s definitely had been a lot more challenging than I had expected. Even just trying to duplicate the most simplest of YouTube tutorials has been quite a challenge. I have really enjoyed the time spent practicing, regardless of my skill level. I’m not giving up. I hope to paint something one day I can feel is worthy to hang in my home.

*****Wants, needs and yes please*****

Anything from my alphabetical list from 👆above is always appreciated And also... I am seriously addicted to stationary and Scrapbook paper. I love Punch Studio anything. Their cards with the beautiful matching envelopes are my favorite. I really appreciate your handmade cards too! I have an odd fondness for mechanical pencils and unique pens, list pad paper, note pads. Even a couple sheets make me happy.

Doodlebug ANYTHING! Oh my goodness Doodlebug is the cutest dang brand I’ve ever seen! If you love cats check out their “Kitten Smitten.”

Fuzzy socks are on my feet almost 24/7. Even the inexpensive ones from the dollar store are much appreciated!

Tea: I drink tea everyday. Any kind you share with me is appreciated- with caffeine and without. Just no licorice please.

Candy: All - Especially gummies from Haribo or any kind of fruity candy.

Are we in a swap? Perhaps you would like to set up a swap for us to share some items with each other. Here are some things I have to trade:

Scrapbook paper and printed card stock paper Wood rubber stamps SNAP booklet of small papers. (They are similar to Project Life) Small embellishments for making ATC’s, mini flip books and the like. Small mulberry paper roses. I have a few extra metal dies Old book pages. 50-60 + years old. Christmas acrylic stamps.

If you see anything above you like, I’m open to sharing our email or phone number to send you photos. That way you may choose specific items you want or need.

Feels awkward to add this part because I truly appreciate anything sent from the heart, but after many swaps I understand why this may be necessary. A few things I really have no use for are:

  • Teacher/student reward stickers
  • Freebie stickers from charities and junk mail.
  • Skulls - gothic - macabre

About me: Hello, my name is Jill. I’m 45 years old. I have 3 sons. All of our birthdays are within a month of each other. My birthday is May 27th. Bret is 27 - his birthday is June 4th. Ryan is 21 - birthday May 21st. Jake is 16 - birthday May 11th. Pretty cool, right? I think so... I’m married my 2nd time around to Jeff. We just celebrated our anniversary in February. We have been married for 4 years and together for 6 years. Jeff and I both have our own businesses. He’s in real estate and I’m in online retail. I love animals. Currently I have two German Shepherds that are brothers from a separate litter. Kane is 3 and Apollo is 2. I purchased Kane shortly after losing my precious Pitbull Mojo of 6 years. I had him since he was a puppy. I lost my beloved Mimi, my mini poodle mix last year. She was 11 years old. We have a goldfish named Potato. He’s 7 years old. He’s a cosmo goldfish my son won at a fair. He was this tiny little brown fish, hence the name potato. After about 9 months he became a beautiful vibrant orange color. I recently upgraded his home from a 10 gallon tank to a 20 gallon tank since he had seemed to outgrow the smaller tank. Did you know goldfish will grow to their environment. Potato is 4” inches long now. Before moving into my current home, and before Jeff, I had a home on a 1/2 acre. Since I had the yard size, I rescued many dogs while living in that home. It was a very rewarding experience. Especially with the last rescue. When I received her she was this little chihuahua named Mama. Due to the horrible abuse she endured, she was deathly afraid of men. Within 3-4 months, not only was she no longer was afraid of men, she became quite the little happy girl who went from trembling to standing tall and always wagging her tail to see someone new. Even men! She’s in her forever home now and doing amazing with her new daddy. Who brought her by for me to see her just last week. My sons have had the wonderful experience of raising many different animals. We have had: Fish, parakeets, rats, rabbits, lizards and a hedgehog. Which by the way I found out that Hedgehogs are illegal in my state. Which explained why I had such a hard time finding one for my sons birthday. We drove to Las Vegas, Nevada to buy it.

Comment: Your tulips are great!! I was really bracing myself for whatever it was I was going to see haha... but these are very good. Take photos and go back and look at things later... save the things you do as you learn... when you look back you'll see progress you've made but ALSO you'll see how nice your work actually looks! Also: I LOVE big handmade envies! Yay!!! Thank you. The 3-d art piece you did is amazing, too... I really don't do things like that and am so impressed. I will display it all (well, not the envies, I'll use them) proudly!
