thank you to Dragonflydreamer for being so helpful. 3 years later and it’s finally up thanks to you.
SWAPS: 🛑 PLEASE READ ✋ 🛑 I recently discovered that my shipping scale is no longer properly calibrated. I’ve had it about 15+ years and just retired it and purchased a new shipping scale on Amazon. If you received a swap from me requesting postage due, please either refuse and have it sent back to me so I can add the correct postage and resend or message me and I’ll send you the additional $ or new stamps to make up for it. Please be kind and observe my track record of ratings. I’ve never had this happen before and it was of course not intentionally done to get out of paying a few cents. I’m more than willing to rectify. 💕 Thank you for your understanding 💕
Hi! Thank you for stopping by. You can skip this and go below for my likes list. I added a bunch of rainbows 🌈 & other emojis so you can find it easier.
Hobbies: I really don’t c raft all that much anymore. However, when I do I enjoy working with pretty much anything to do with paper crafting and mixed media.
I make flip books, embellished tags, book marks, ATC’s, dyed paper, and altering wood boxes and ceramic pots for my orchids with a vintage -shabby chic style.
Cooking - since I was about 5 or 6 years old. I would stand on a kitchen chair moving it around the kitchen to reach the counter top and stove. I made Easter dinner myself at age Eleven. The scalloped potatoes, glazed ham and other sides. I enjoy cooking American, Asian, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, German and Italian - for hubby mostly. He could eat Italian food every single day! If you have a family favorite recipe, please share! I recently began getting more into baking. I make my own brownies, pizza dough (add sugar!) and pasta. I still suck at making bread, but I’m not giving up.
I enjoy gardening very much. It’s my therapy. Unfortunately our home is quite large, but with a teeny tiny backyard. Here in Corona, California it’s desert soil, so I have to use above planter containers. We joke that we grow rocks, although not really all that funny :( I’m moving in several months into my new home with a huge backyard. My new home is only a few minutes from where I’m at now. I’m beyond thrilled to start a larger garden and grow my own vegetables once again. Of course the desert soil is still an issue, so I’m going to build organic vertical gardens. Look them up. Very fascinating and uses no soil and 95% less water! I’ll be using coconut for the soil. Crazy, right? Can’t wait!
Photography. I’m a professional photographer. I used to work for a company in Huntington Beach when I was a single mama. I progressed quickly and was training newbies within a few months on the job. My manager hired me as a back up photographer for weddings and family events, and eventually I branched out on my own and worked solo for many years.
I currently own my own home based business. It keeps me quite busy. Among that and my many other obligations and responsibilities, (like we ALL have in life) it’s made finding time or even desire to craft a bit harder. I’m not on here as frequently as I’d like, but I have to prioritize. I know... being an adult is so boring sometimes haha.
I have a plaque in my bathroom that says “Don’t wish for it. Work for it!” It’s my reminder every day to work hard and push through the obstacles.
Crafts I enjoy : Drawing Watercoloring & acrylic paints Photography (my last career) Altering anything- mixed media
