About Me

July 2nd 2020 If you haven’t been rated by me yet, please let me know and I’ll get to it as soon as possible.

All past due swaps were mailed either today and one will be tomorrow.

I am running behind in all my swaps. A very close family member had an unexpected, serious illness arise last month that has greatly impacted my family. With her sudden passing last week, my world and heart is shattered in pieces. Thank you to those of you who have been praying for her. I’ll never forget your kindness, warmth and compassion. Especially during one of the hardest times of my life.

Hello, my name is Jill. I live in California. I’m 46 years old. I’m a tea drinking workaholic, gummy bear addict and craft supply collector (hoarder) I have three wonderful and very sweet sons. Our birthdays are all back to back and just about a week apart from till the next. Jake turned 18 on May 11th. Ryan will be 23 the 21st of May. Next my birthday is the 27th Bret will be 29 on June 4th.

I’m married my second time around to Jeff. We have been together for 8 years - married for 5 years. Jeff has two adult children I adore! I have two German Shepherds, Kane & Apollo that are brothers from a separate litter. Kane is 4 and weighs 126 lbs. Apollo is 3 years old and weighs 96lbs. They’re incredibly loving, smart and loyal dogs.

We have a 10 year old Cosmo goldfish named Potato. He was a tiny little brown colored goldfish my youngest son won at the fair many years ago. Potato is now beautiful orange and white and about 6-7 inches long. If you want to know how to properly care for your goldfish, just ask. I’ve had fish on and off since I was elementary school age, and have learned a lot over the years by trial and error. We have had many wonderful pets over the years. Lizards, bunnies, rats, hamsters, parakeets and a hedgehog. It would be a dream come tru to have a farm to retire on one day. Definitely not a city girl at heart.

Things I enjoy in my free time:

Shopping (retail therapy) Reading, baking, gardening, mixed media, acrylic painting, watercoloring, paper crafting and organizing.

Projects using scrapbook paper, mixed media supplies and a canvas = my happy place.

I own my home based business. It keeps me quite busy. I’m also a professional photographer. I used to own my own small based photography business until my health issues made it more challenging to keep a schedule. I’ve been working from home for about 8 years now.

I have a plaque in my bathroom that says “Don’t wish for it. Work for it.”

One of my favorite jobs was when I worked for several years for the well known pediatrician Dr Sears. Using his philosophy and my own 20+ years of experience, I wrote the daily nutritional tip for his FB page, along with answering questions that parents had regarding all areas of parenting from nutrition, exercise, sibling rivalry, discipline and baby care.

Favorite Crafts

Crafts I enjoy : Drawing Watercoloring & acrylic paints Photography (my last career) Altering anything- mixed media Junk journals (been collecting items and STILL have not made a complete book yet)

My likes; 🦋💕🌈🦋💕🌈🦋💕🌈🦋💕🌈🦋💕 🌈 I LOVE RAINBOWS 🌈 Whenever I see a rainbow I think of Gods promise. So anything with a rainbow is very much appreciated! Anything Christian ✝️ would love to know your favorite bible scripture and why it’s so valuable to you. Mine is Jeremiah 29:11. It’s what pulled me through some very hard times.

Items that I like: Teacups, tea pots, tea, lace trim, doilies, butterflies, nautical, anchors, koi fish, goldfish, flowers, Ivy, trees and gardens. Anything to do with a gardening. Shovels, watering cans, white picket fences, flowers, clay pots and snails.

I grow my own amaryllis and orchids, so anything with this is very much appreciated. I really do like all flowers, so whatever scraps with florals you have to share is very much appreciated.

Themes and styles: Eclectic Favorite is Nautical and Shabby chic Also like vintage, florals, cutesy.

Colors: Love all colors. Favorites are cobalt blue, darker metallic blue, yellow, black and white. Newly really loving purple - all shades and coupled with either yellow or sage green.

Absolutely love and swoon over metals and metallic. Copper is my favorite. My husband redid our kitchen backsplash in copper for me. Love it!!!

I’m working on my handmade journals. One will be an art journal and the other one for adding little bits of this and that of my favorite things.

💜 Items I can always use or would enjoy receiving

Glassine envelopes. Any size

Love gummy candy. Especially Haribo. Also any fruity chewy or hard candies. I do like chocolate of course, but not dark so much.

Miniatures Vintage - antique Fabric scraps, Lace, Crocheted Doilies or similar to those. Illustrated book pages. Especially ones in color. Paper clay Doilies Pretty, cute or vintage paper scraps Polymer clay Glassine envelopes Small paper bags or envelopes for swaps goodies. Fuzzy socks or slippers - medium or OS. Mechanical pencils (odd obsession) Cutesy or fancy pens Little purse sized notebooks Note/greeting cards. Blank or thank you

Gel pens that don’t smudge for left-handed peeps

Favorite brands: Punch Studio

Tim Holtz

K&Company

Carta Bells & Echo Park

Doodlebug

Graphic 45

No thank you and dislikes.

Licorice tea Children’s school age stickers or craft supplies. Baby shower / wedding craft supplies. Free Advertisements unless antique or vintage.

While I try not to limit what someone can send me. Especially since not everyone has a filled craft room of items to choose from to share, I really do not have a need or want for the items I mentioned above. Thank you

Dislikes: Swappers who have seem to forgotten this is a voluntary recreational crafting website and not a actual job or business. Please remember to be kind, patient, compassionate and understanding of others. You don’t know their struggles or what they may be going through.

Comment: My friend Jill is the most amazing woman I know!! Going through so much in her life, but yet when I tell her not to worry about sending my pocket letter and just get through all the things she was going through with her Mo, what does she do she still gets my pocket letter in mail! If you haven’t swapped with this girl, you are missing out, she is a beautiful lady inside and out! Thank you friend!!! Love your friend Crystal 🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️🌺❤️

Thank you for my March wish! The page tabs are perfect. I use them to mark specific pages in my bullet journal. The die cuts - also adorable. Already used one of the bunnies for my April 1 page :)
And the socks are also so cute and bright and cheerful! Perfect!
