About Me

October 7th 2018 Today is my first day back since March. I missed swapping so much! Feeling so very thankful that am able to come back to it now :)

March 5th 2018 I haven’t been on here more than 2 times in the last 3-4 weeks. I did log in today to reply to a few messages, but being that I have around 30 to reply to, please be patient. I have had some unforeseen events take place that have pulled me away from swapping. I’m hoping to be back soon. God bless


If you have not received a swap from me, please message me before rating me. I promise to always try my “personal” best to send on time and to send you a very special swap. I always aim to earn your heart rating. Lost mail and unexpected delays does happen. LIFE HAPPENS! Sometimes we need a reminder that this is a recreational swapping site and not a business... right? You never know, it may happen to you one day. Let’s all be kind to one another and keep this fun!

I recently made a few mistakes with not adding postage, wrote the wrong address and was running behind due to health issues. I have had one illness after another since December. Some minor, some more serious.... I’m so EXTREMELY thankful for the ladies who were so kind and so compassionate about that!! My love and admiration goes out to you ladies!

If you are running behind sending a swap to me, please let me know. Communication is important. I am an understanding person and know all too well that life can be so very unpredictable at times. Swapping is supposed to be fun and not stressful. Simply let me know you need a few more days or even weeks. It’s just a swap, not time sensitive legal documents. My life won’t be altered in the slightest if you’re running late :)

 ****CRAFTS and HOBBIES****

*I'm seriously addicted to pretty paper and embellishments.
* Scrapbooking *ATC's - fairly new to this. * Flip books - Made my first one last month and I can’t srop making them now in my very limited spare time :-) *Pocket Letters. I am always up for swapping a PL. please keep in mind I am new to it and not nearly as good at it as most, but I promise to try my best! *Photography is my passion. I have been a professional photographer for about 12 years. *Sewing - I have recently started to dabble back into sewing again. I’m making a pillow case this week for a RAK

LOVES: Anything Nautical themed- especially anchors Snails, Koi Fish, Mermaids, Unicorns, Butterflies, Rainbows, hot air balloons, flowers and birds I always think of God's promise when I see a rainbow. Tea- All- especially green Favorite colors: Turquoise, cobalt blue, yellow, black and white.

Metals: All. Especially copper.

I happily welcome all holiday craft supplies any time of year. **********************************************************LIKES:

Pretty stationary, handmade envelopes, note pad paper. Single sheets fine with me :) Mechanical pencils Embellishments die cuts ephemera Washi tape - samples are fine :) stickers - please no teacher reward type.

************************Wish List***********************

Any of the above items are very much appreciated! Some swaps require a little more something- something, so here are some additional items that I like if the swap calls for it.

Christian related items: Miniature anything. I love itty bitty things. Any Fimo or polymer clay - any colors. I just started playing around with clay. So far I only have the colors white, black and gold. Jewelry: Store bought or handmade. Slippers and fuzzy socks - size 7 medium
Candy: Gummies and fruity candy are my favorite. I like milk chocolate as well. Lip balms - Any

Pens: Anything unique, fancy or interesting looking The Dusty Attic chipboard: I would be so grateful for even your leftover unused scraps of Dusty Attic chipboard from a past project you made. Candles - any kind or scent is fine :).
Tea or coffee: I like them all. Tea bags and K cups welcome. I have a a couple Keurig machines.
Shirt size Medium Handmade: Anything made by you or by someone else

Dislikes: I don’t have any use for teacher reward stickers. My sons are teen- adult ages.

More boring stuff about me: Currently: My hubby and I both own our own businesses. Jeff works out of the home, and I'm fortunate to be able to work from home. Gives me lots of time to spend with my 2 German Shepherds Kane, and Apollo, that I am crazy in love with.

When I was a single mom only a few short years ago, I worked for a photography company for several years before doing freelance. I love photography! I still take photos every day, just no longer of people. I take photos of clothing now. I hired a model for my clothing business and now looking to add another.

I used to work for well-known pediatrician Dr William Sears. He has wrote several books on child rearing. One of my favorites of his is: The NDD Book. NDD stands for Nutrition Deficit Disorder. How a lot of parents feed their kids has become quite an issue. Especially with a household of both parents working, which can equal less home cooked meals and too much packaged foods. I can provide tips for busy moms who want to incorporate more Whole Foods into their families diets, as well as helping moms to change old habits and reshape your child's taste buds. I worked at his Irvine California office promoting his line of products, like his snacks and vitamins. I also was a community moderator for his Facebook page. Based off of Dr Sears philosophies and his books (yes, it was required that I read them) and with my own experience of being a mom for many years, I answered questions parents had regarding all areas of child rearing concerns. I also wrote the daily nutritional tip. I really enjoyed working for Dr Sears. I admire his passion for kids and family. Every child is uniquely different and special. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. If you've been wanting to change your kids diets but are being met with resistance, that's totally normal. The key is to be consistent and not give up. I often told parents that kids will eat what you bring home. First start off by not buying the junk food, and limiting it to a special occasional treat. Not a daily staple. You’re welcome to reach out to me if you have a question or concerns. God bless you all! I hope that 2018 will be a year for us all of to show more patience and kindness to one another. I wish you all better health and prosperity.


Comment: I sent you two messages about this. One on March 31st and the other one on April 14th-neither have been read and I see you haven't been online since March 5th. I will change my rating if I do receive something from you.

Loved the traditions letter, Jake’s tastes in cookies are great because Peanut Butter Blossoms are my favorite too! Right out of the oven. Yummmm! Thank you so much for all the added surprises! Love everything!!! Bling, charms, flowers and washi!! Where did you get that adorable boxed washi......so cute!! Many many thanks for such an awesome swap! ❤️

Comment: I'm still learning my way around SwapBot...where is the button that gives 10 hearts?! : ) WOW! What a beautiful box packed full of goodies! I had so much fun unpacking and unwrapping everything. My New Years weekend project is going to be putting the flip book together. You are such a sweetheart for making all those die cuts and embossed papers for me. Thank you SO much. The little quotes are now hanging at my desk and the wind chill is 14 this morning so I am loving my cozy socks and chapstick. Oh, and the Plumeria hand cream is amazing! That was one of my favorite plants back in FL, it smells just like the flowers. Thank you so much for the wonderful swap and for being such a sweet, kind person. Many blessings to you in the new year.
Response: I’m so glad that you’re happy with your Christmas gifts, but after opening what you sent me... WOW! I’m preparing another package to send you today now that things have calmed down a bit for me :)

Happy Saturday to you! I just wanted to let you know that I posted a swap in TCHH for a Valentine's Happy Card Pocket swap if you'd like to check it out! I thought I would host it early that way everyone receives their cards in time for Valentine's. I hope you're having a great day! Hugs.

Thank you for angeling the Send 10 Things swap even though you didn't have to! I love all the scraps of decorative paper. I think one item you sent is something I received in a swap and passed along a few months ago... if it's made it back to me, maybe it's time I should retire it, haha!

bbsporty on Dec 27, 2017:

Thank you for the AWG Stocking stuffer of Tim Holtz and K & Company ephemera! I love both brands so much! I can't wait to use them!

Tigerlilyknotwise on Dec 25, 2017:

:) Opened the stocking stuffer you sent for AWG... thank you! The chipboard buttons are so cute and I like the whimsical washi! Thanks for being part of my Merry Christmas and I hope you and your family have had a great one too!
