About Me

January 16th 2019 I’m ready to swap again! After being gone almost a year I’ve had time to reflect on my past swaps. I have by far enjoyed private swaps over public ones. It was very disheartening how many swaps I received where the minimum wasn’t even being met. And it was always with swaps that called for more extensive time, money or extra love and care. These seem to be the swaps where I felt some members join solely to receive and in return they haphazardly toss whatever into an envelope and send it off knowing too many of us won’t speak up. Especially when we’re are new to a group. I realize Not everyone aims to receive a heart rating and that’s perfectly fine, but at least put forth the time and effort you know in your heart you should or don’t join those types of swaps!! So moving forward to 2019, I will no longer rate a 5 if the requirements haven’t been met.

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

*** I SEND ALL MY SWAPS***

If you have not received a swap from me, please message me before rating me. I promise to always send my swaps or at least communicate with you if there is an issue that arises.

If you are running behind sending a swap to me, please let me know as soon as possible. Communication is important. I know all too well that life can be 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. Its just a swap, not time sensitive legal documents. My life will not be altered in the slightest if you are running late :)


 ****CRAFTS and HOBBIES****

*I'm seriously addicted to pretty paper and embellishments.
*ATC's - fairly new but getting better. * Flip books - I have made 3-4 now *Pocket Letters. I am always up for swapping the above: please keep in mind I am new to these crafts, and not nearly as good as most, but I promise to try my best! *Photography is my passion. I have been a professional photographer for about 14 years. *Sewing - I have recently started to dabble back into sewing again. When my sons were little I made their curtains and matching throw pillow cases. They were a tad crooked, but I made them myself! (Patting my own back)


LOVES: 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 kinds. Caffeinated and non. Any! I I would love to try a new decaf tea you’re willing to part with :)

Favorite colors: Turquoise, cobalt blue, yellow, black and white. Patterns: Polka dots

Metals: All. Especially rose gold and copper.

I happily welcome all holiday craft supplies any time of year. Halloween is my least favorite, but still welcomed. I love fall colors and themes. Just not skulls and creepy. **********************************************************LIKES:

Pretty stationary, note pad paper. Mini notepads, sticky notes. Single sheets fine with me :) Fancy and cutesy pens. Mechanical pencils Embellishments Ephemera Washi tape - don’t really need any. If the swaps calls for it that’s fine. Stickers - please no teacher reward type. Mixed media items
************************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: Silicone molds Paper clay. Any Fimo or polymer clay - any colors.
Miniature anything. I love itty bitty things Miniature stuffed animals or figurines Jewelry: Store bought or handmade. Slippers and fuzzy socks - size 7, medium Candy: All, but...Gummies and fruity candy are my absolute favorite. 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 or any laser cut wood items. 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 and no thank you’z -

I dont have any use for teacher reward stickers. My sons are late teen to adult ages.


More boring stuff about me: Currently: My hubby and I both own our own businesses. Jeff works out of the home. 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 recently hired a model for my clothing business and am now looking to hire 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. Feel free to reach out to me if you have a questions or concerns with your little ones or book recommendations. He had several books I think every parent could benefit from reading.

With love, Jill

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.
