Update March 16: I have just recently discovered "Smashbooks" so it is now my new obsession. I have no clue what I am doing but thats the fun in it!! I would love to receive pockets,pages or anything else that would go into a smashbook. My first Smashbook is a Martha Stewart 3 ring binder(it's size is 9X7), Staples had Martha Stewarts office supply items on serious clearence so I bought all that they had of the binders in Red,Black and Martha Stewart Blue. So, if you would like to swap a 9X7 binder for smachbook supplies just drop me a line. Some of the other projects that I am now working on are Mixed Media Canvas's. I love love love the Claudine Hellmuth paints to use on my canvas's and I also am having alot of fun with 6X6 stencils. I am finding that my creative visions are broadening and I am starting to work alot more with paint and texture based items. I am still a crazy card maker as I will never ever buy another greeting card. I try to keep up on my scrapbooking but I can never seem to sit down long enough to pull out all of my sbing supplies to get anything done, One of these days I may have enough time in a day to do all that I love!!!
Update: If I am your partner and you do not receive a swap from me, Please do not hesitate to email me and ask. If there is a problem, I will do whatever I can to make it good.
I am a Multi crafter, Crocheting, card making, scrap booking, I am learning to sew in hopes of making my own bags(purses). I also love to cook and bake. Baking is what I am really good at. Cookies, Brownies, sweets, sweets and more sweets.I am always on the lookout for some great new recipe. At X-mas time, I do a cookies exchange with some fellow crafting friends and we swap 8 dozen cookies. That is most fave time of year and it is when I am most productive in any and all of my crafts. When it is chilly and cloudy outside and I have the heater on and a great LMN movie on the TV. My #1 love though is Paper crafting. Seriously, I am so addicted to creating cards and atc's and well, anything paper craft. I create every day. Even if I only have 5 minutes, it is at my desk making either a card or starting on a scrapbook page or just something. I love love love to be involved in swaps. I also like to send RAK's. So, dont be surprised if you find one in your mail box. I take great pride in the swaps I send, I always put my "all" into them and if you are my partner, You wont be dissapointed!!! I only send quality as I would hope that my partner would also send the same. I am pretty picky in what I use in/on my ATC's. If at all possible I like it to be as acid free as possible. I know that sometimes that is dificult but like I said, as acid free as possible. I am slowly but surely working on my "Etsy" store, I am trying to get an inventory so I can stock the "shelves" So, you all will be the first to know when I am ready. Right now I have only a few items in my store as a trial run!

I love my job as I love to bake and cook so my days fly by rather quickly. Also, I am one of those people that will totally follows the rules and I like to get my swaps out within a day or so of finding out my partner so if you are my partner and you havent received your swap from me, Please please, please let me know.Also, Even if you leave 1 word, when you rate me, Please let me know if you liked what I sent you or not.

I am at garage sales and the swap meet every weekend and also when we travel we may even plan our trip around garage sales and flea markets. I love the $ store and 99¢ stores although I love those stores, I am really picky as to the items I purchase there. I do/will not use $ store cosmetics,shampoos, lotions,perfumes or items along those lines. I will however purchase snacks,craft items,some fruits and veggies and garden items.
Pink, I love anything pink. I also love to swap, Whether it be ATC's(which are soooo much fun) or 6X6 scrapbook pages with themes. If you want to swap with me, Let's do it. I am up for swapping anytime!! My style is a little cutesy,vintage,steampunk,classy,clean lines type. I always have to have the latest and greatest tools and gadgets and I am always shopping for some new embellishments. I love scraps. If they are big enough to use on an ATC (2.5 X 3.5) then that is perfect.Designer papers are an addiction. I love . I will always sign up for scrap swaps and if you want to one on one swap with me, Let me know!! I am working on my first Smashbook, so any help with adding stuf to it would be greatly appreciated!! I also have alot of fun with Paints. Claudine Hellmuth is my fave brand of paints and I will use paint on anything from canvas to paper to plastic. I like to alter items such as paper mache boxes and dress forms. I am a serious paper Who&%. I love paper, I love patterns on the papers, . I Love to receive little goodies, Like misc. ephemra Grunge paper,ANYTHING & EVERYTHING Tim Holtz. Mulberry paper flowers in all colors, Not the flat ones but the full rose type ones. Tea Dyed ribbons, tea dyed tags(#8)
Right now, there isnt a whole lot on basic cable although, My faveorite channel is TLC. I am a totally TLC junkie. The only show I do not care for is What are you wearing or whatever the name of that makeover show is. Every other show , I love. My top 5, Extreme Couponing, Sister Wives,19 kids & Counting,The little couple,DC cupcakes. I do however watch some E tv. Kendra,Keeping up with the Kardashians and a few other of the E shows. I sit at my craft desk and have the tv on the whole time while I am doing my creating!!
I love Little odds and ends that are girlie and fun, Anything scrapbook/card making related is great. I love to make my own envalopes so larger scraps of designer papers is great and totally appreciated! I mostly make them for my ATC's and my 3X3's. I am the total paper Hoarder. I love Love Love designer papers except for those cheapie $ store papers. I am pretty particular about the items that I use in my crafting. I like quality over quantity!!! Vintage and/or victorian ephemera. Pearl & Bling in any and all colors. Even blingy costume jewelry is great. I will ALWAYS go that extra mile in my sending of swaps. I love love love to swap, so if you ever have me as a partner, You will not be dissapointed. LOL (Big smile) No, I honestly believe "Only send what you would want to receive" So I seriously stick to that motto. I love going to Garage Sales and the flea market. I do that every weekend. My husband and I actually take our trailer to different areas and do the garage sale and flea market thing. We havedone that in the Sonoma area and also in Nevada. We have an awesome home on wheels. with all the amenaties. I will not send dollar store items unless it is a dollar store item swap and I appreciate the same unless it is a well done quality altered item specific to dollar store. I do like used unique postage stamps. Not your average "forever" stamps but something really different and also, Not from USA postage stamps. I love to recieve crocheted flowers made with crochet thread, not thick yarn. Well I think that about covers it but if you are my partner in any of my swaps and you have a ? about something, Please email me, I would happy to answer any ?'s that you may have!!
I am going to sound extremely picky but, Here goes, Dislikes- This isnt so much dis likes but what I dont need any more of or what i will not use.NO STICKERS, I cannot emphasize enough, I have 1000's of stickers and I would really hate for you to send me more only to not use them. Eyelets and brads(I have tons and tons) . I dont need anymore buttons or ribbon or fibers. I also will not use any baby items(ie: stickers,papers and such) My baby is 16 so no need for the stuff. Also, I know this is something that is mentioned on alot of others profiles but, I am an ex smoker (of 2 years) and if you smoke, Please either fabreeze it or put a fabric softener sheet in with whatever it is if you have any doubt as to the smell. Also, I do not and will not use magazine,newspaper or any non acid free clippings. I am pretty particular about what i put onto my cards,atc's and scrapbook pages so please be as acid free as possible.Also, Please no asian themed items, now I know Hello Kitty or Sanrio are Asia based products but other than that, I will not/do not use anything asian themed. Also, This is a big one, Whenever I send off my swaps, I put alot into them and I definetly make them something that I would want to receive thus, my point being, If you are involved in a swap and it entails purchasing items(NOT $1.00 STORE ITEMS) There are swaps for that. Dont fill up a box with $ store items and call it good. It took me a long time to come this this realization but I had finally had it. I love to swap and nothing bums me out more than getting items that I will not use or are not of the quality that even the $ store makes them look good, I know it is kind of harsh but in the short time that I have been on swap bot I have had swaps that although they meet the criteria(the bare minimum) there was no thought at all put into them and thats why we swap, right? So, I think that is it for the icky part( I hate having to sound like a meanie) but I just want swaps to be fun for all and it just to be a great experiance for me and for my partner!!
One of my most fave lines is "Tim Holtz" Alterations. I love every little bit that has his name on it. Vintage and shabby chic to me are so much fun and I just cant get enough of the look. If there is any swaps that have Tim Holtz in the title, I am all there!!! If anyone wants to do a 1 on 1 of anything Tim Holtz, then let me know. The following are dies that I have in his "Alterations" line. Paper Rosette Sewing Room Tattered Florals Ticket strip & Caged Bird Fanciful flight Mini butterflies mini sewing room set mini old jalopy mini bird cage mini flourish mini gears mini scary jack o lantern mini labels set
Now I really really want: Elegant Flourishes Gadget Gears Alterations BIGZ Tags and Bookplates Ornamental Large clock Tattered Leaves Candelabra and Spider - Fanciful Flight Butterfly Tiny Tabs And Tags TATTERED BANNERS Movers & Shapers Alterations Mini Butterflies Movers and Shapers
I am sure I will want more as they are released but so far, thats it. Now onto the stamps, I have most of, If not all of the Tim Holtz Visual artistry collection so there really isnt any on my wish list but, If there is something you would like stamped images of then let me know.
Urban Grunge Boundless Flight French Market Grunge Cirque Regal Flourish Playful Journey The Journey Lost & Found Lifes Possibilities Seamless Experiance
I also have 5 or 6 of the Distress crackle paints, 5 or 6 distress stains, lots of grunge board and salvage stickers. I know I am leaving something out but for the most part, That is my collection obsession with Tim Holtz. Not to mention, He is so cute too!
