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.

Favorite Crafts

Crafts I enjoy : Drawing Watercoloring & acrylic paints Photography (my last career) Altering anything- mixed media

My likes; 🦋💕🌈🦋💕🌈🦋💕🌈🦋💕🌈🦋💕 🌈 I LOVE RAINBOWS 🌈 Whenever I see a rainbow I think of Gods promise. So anything with a rainbow is very much appreciated!

Also appreciate anything below: Teacups, tea pots, butterflies, nautical, koi fish, goldfish, flowers, Ivy, trees and gardens. Anything to do with a gardening. Shovels, watering cans, white picket fences, flowers, clay pots etc.

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.

Absolutely love all metals and metallic. Copper is my favorite.

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.

I recently dyed my own paper using colored dye, tea and coffee. If anyone would like some of my dyed papers, let me know. I’m happy to share 💙

💜 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

Metal embellishments and charms.

Old jewelry that’s broken. I can use it in my mixed media projects - turn trash into treasure :)

Vintage - antique Fabric scraps, Lace, Crocheted Doilies or similar to those. Illustrated book pages. Especially ones in color. Paper clay Polymer clay Hemp cord/string. Waxed cotton cord. Seed beads
20 gauged jewelry wire in any color. Head pins Jewelry clasps. Any size.

Fuzzy socks or slippers - medium or OS. Non toxic nail polish Natural facial moisturizer

Office supplies. Large gold paper clips or multi colors in any size Page flags Bookmark handmade or not Mechanical pencils (odd obsession) Cutesy or fancy pens Little purse sized notebooks Note/greeting cards. Blank or thank you

Other likes : Love blown glass. I have a snail, dolphin, paperweight with tropical fish and a very generous swapper gave me a beautiful glass starfish.

I love miniature anything. I have these things in my curio: Miniature Japanese food, shopping cart, purse, basket of roses, orchids, and a teeny tiny blown glass snail, and two adorable stuffed animals in a bunny and Bear. Just because I may already have it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want another... :)

Comment: I know you think its bad but i super like it. I love how 3d it is. Also how you used so many different types of things. It wasnt just taking one pack of things and doing the same type of card over and over. Also love the white edging on the bottom. I would love some of those to play with! Is it a punch or a die? Also super thanks for all the halloween goodies! I made a new flipbook out of them! Cant wait to show you(just have to get my lazy bum out of bed and downstairs!!) Thanks! I love swapping with you!! Cant wait for you to be all moved and have a craft room!
