A little about myself

(updated 3/18) I am a SAHM of three. Two boys 17 & 13 and life's "little" surprise my three yr old daughter. My oldest Coleton loves music and can play several instruments also sings at competition level. Is in the school chorale and has placed in several regional contests. My middle son is my comedian. Loves to make everyone laugh. He is all about video games and wrestling. My baby Gracelyn definitely keeps me busy and is a DIVA. Loves her jewelry, Barbies and painting her nails.

Furry Family

We have three cats Jaspurr an orange tabby, Squibby a LARGE white and gray cat and my hand raised bottle fed baby a gray tabby ( with the fluffiest tail I've ever seen lol maybe his daddy was a skunk) Tinker Puss. A Chorkie ( Chihuahua/ Yorkie mix) Layla, two ferrets Miss Ellie & Oliver, and two hermit crabs Bob and Sharky.

I have been crafting since I was a child. Always have loved to make (and take apart to see how they were made πŸ˜‰β€¦)things. I draw (hopefully it's not too bad)mainly in pencil but have tried other mediums as well just favor something I can erase.

I collect Hello Kitty, Fairies( not Tinkerbell),used stamps washi tape( somewhat of a hoarder ),& anything strange or odd.

I love reading(horror & romance mostly), gardening, photography, hiking, and spending time with my awesome kids.

I also pen pal and have been for 10 years. It is a wonderful way to truly "see" the world thru another's eyes

*My pet peeves are liars, scammers, and rude people. Can't wait to start swapping. Thanks for having me.

Favorite Crafts

Love anything that can be made but my favorites are pocket letters, atcs, stamping, jewelry, tutus, bows, tags and any paper crafts. Just recently started adding some of my creations to my Pinterest and Flickr page πŸ˜„

My favorite craft supplies would be die cuts, washi, stickers, cute paper, stamps ( love any and all but the Gorjuss,Besties and Prima stamps are my #1 favs).But I really haven't met a medium yet I refuse to use.

** If interested in swapping any type of stamped images just msg me.

Before leaving feedback

***As a pen pal I know mail is ALWAYS unpredictable if you do not receive please let me know I will resend. I will also msg you and see if you received after a certain amount of time. Also if you need/want proof I always take pics of stamped envelope ( or tracking # if it needed it) that I can email you.

I am in a smoking household. I do keep my swap stuff in containers however I can't guarantee no smoke smell very sorry πŸ˜”

*** I always rate within a day or two of receiving however I'm not so quick to remember to go back and add a ty & msg to your rate if I didn't when I rated. Doesn't mean I am not thankful or didn't love it. Just means I'm human and forgot or didn't have time to go back and do it.πŸ˜™

Comment: My very first arctic mermaid...and I love her! Thank you so much for putting your heart into your art (it shows!), and for being such a generous swap partner...I love the extras too! ETA: the envelope! That beautiful mermaid...even the STAMPS are "under the sea" inspired! You impress me very much, Chrystal...very much indeed!
Response: Thank you for such a great comment! Really made my day as I was worried she wasn't a "normal" mermaid so you might not like her.

Hi! The postcard you sent for April AWG just got here today! Thank you! The little picture you drew on it is so cute and the postcard itself is very cool - I love it when spiderwebs have all those little droplets on them! Like ropes of little diamonds :)

So glad you liked everything! The stamp you are referring to is by cat's life press. They have dozens I would love to own! 😁
