About Me

  • I am a stay at home mom to 6 amazing children. I enjoy spending time with my family walking, hiking, exploring nature and being outdoors. We also get on the craft side when indoors..we do lots of crafts and all of my children participate...they love it too! I am currently homeschooling 5 out of 6 children and we love it! I love to bake, cook and garden as well.
    I flat out, want to come out and say..WE are collectors! All of us! We collect EVERYTHING! You name is and we most likely collect it! I personally have so many loves...there is so much lovely and special things out there..here on earth to love. Im really easy to please, since i have a love for basically...Everything! My tastes, likes and styles are totally off the wall and have no relation what so ever! I love so many things I just cant name them all!

My husband and I have been together for 18 years! He really is amazing and I love him tons! ♥ His interests are Motorcycles (No Harley Davidson though Pls), Sci-Fi, Zombies, Old Cars, Shot Glasses...He loves Butterfingers and Peanut M & M's. He likes to watch Sci-Fi television shows and Horror or Scary Movies. He likes to try new foods and Swim. He would love something made locally in your area (food)...He loves T-shirts with funny sayings or pictures..2XL...He loves anything from Starbucks!! He also collects old oil cans, tin cans, signs, Native American stuff, Old video games and memorbilia, ummm...he looves inscence (sticks) and random inscence holders, resident evil stuff, walking dead, comics, Pee Wee Herman, Dvds, Classic cars stuff, Sushi sets, and pretty much anything vintage for men!

I did include my children in here! I would love to include them in swaps..so it wouldnt hurt my feelings one bit if you decided to send stuff for my children instead of me!

We love to travel. We have so much fun as a family going on road trips and camping together! I would love to get brochures or info on any local places to visit or camp in your area...State Parks etc..We have so much fun and find so much to do just in NY...the kids love a weekend road trip!!!!!

Could always use a Target or Walmart $5 Giftcard...I desperatley need kitchen pots, pans etc...This would earn you a heart!******

Favorite Crafts

I really really enjoy paper crafts! I have been paper crafting FOREVER and even though Im not as good as others I still love it very much! I have been scrapbooking for 15 years now. Im still trying to play catch up-so much has happened in 15 years! I just recently started Scrapbooking Project Life style and its super fun! My oldest 2 children also started scrapbooking, mainly about things we do as a family, homeschooling, field trips, road trips etc. I love it and think its a great way for them to be creative. They even take their own pictures and do all of their journaling by hand.

I journal quite a bit and make handmade cards as well. I wouldnt mind trying Atc cards..ive read about them but thats it. I make smash books, alter journals, make inchies, alter composition books or nay other book I think may need altering. I love to make whimsy Jars (I found them on flickr..I make them with extra goodies I have and then put them on shelves to collect dust! But they still look pretty!

My daughters and I love to make fairy and gnome homes. We make fairy gardens outdoors, in terrariums and in fish bowls. So we could make use of just about any craft item you want to send us! Its so much fun working with my children-using our imaginations and being creative-almost like being a child again myself!

If you are interested in sending nature items that would be great too! Things such as cool sticks, stones or bark..you think we might like for our fairy homes. Right now Im looking for a rather large piece of white birch bark for another project Im doing. If you can send me one I will give you a heart!

Right now the currant crafts I am working on is my scrapping. I also do crafts in between but I really need to buckle down and get caught up! Im working on Christmas, Halloween and birthday albums right now, project life and childrens yearly albums!

My oldest daughter and I are refurbishing old dollhouses. She has also been very interested in photo stories with her dolls which we have done a little bit..but Im working on getting our supply of stuff greater! She has started a photo album of her picture stories. We have lots of fun doing these 2 things together! We also make bracelets together..friendship type but she wants to start making the hook and loom type..so I have to figure that out!

I would love to learn to crochet and sew. My etsy and pinterest is just overflowing with great stuff I want to make! So if you see anything on my lists and you can make it..I would love that! I would also love things for our dolls! Clothes, hats, blankets, diapers, etc...anything u think we would like!
