About Me


Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I am a Northern Girl at heart, living in Florida for 31 years, and originally from the north. I am married and have a smart and busy daughter. Every day is a challenge! I work and am also a volunteer at my daughter's school. I am also a Girl Scout Leader and absolutely love it. I've been in Scouting for 15 years. Needless to say, we are always making crafts. I love to make handmade items, especially for gifts. Most of all, I love to laugh and make others laugh as well. I've just had a ball finding new ideas and trying them here. I've come across some of the nicest ladies here!

Not sending out a swap, tag or WTA is not my style. If there is a problem, I will communicate with you, please extend me the same courtesy. It is NOT the end of the world. I am easy to work with. I take my ratings seriously. Please contact me with any concerns, thanks.

I have loved crafts since I was a kid - making a birthday card for Mom, paper birthday hats for my birthday as a kid, sewing a Care Bear in Home Economics, ....Oh what memories!

Hi Ann, thanks so much for the awesome and double mini kits from the Inspire Me! group WTA #3. I have always wanted to try doing a cross stitch! I am getting tired of my normal ATCs and wow it would be neat to make a cross stitch Christmas ATC with this! (I would keep it for myself though, bwahahah). And I love the matchbox kit, it has been ages since I've done one and this will be so much fun. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness. Sue
