About Me

UPDATE (11/8/14) Am back after taking some time off to plan and get married....so happy to be back to swapping and creating and filling my mailbox with something other than invitations and thank you cards! (Altho I enjoyed that as well!) S & I were married on Halloween afternoon in a private ceremony with our Joey and my parents in attendance.It was wonderful and so was the reception the next day...I am so lucky to have found a wonderful man to share my life with as well as share our happiness with all our friends and family!

About me: I am 39 and work from home full time, which allows me to craft and be a domestic goddess in my free time.I am happily married to a ginger workaholic named Scotty and Mama part time to his/our son Joey.We share our home with two dogs, a cat and fish and a lot of love.

I take my happy mail and swapping responsibilities very seriously and read all swaps carefully and send something I would enjoy receiving.Whenever possible I have swaps ready before signing up so I can send asap. If you do not get a swap or rating from me please let me know! I plan to post when I work on and/or send things here on my profile as well to keep me organized.

Dislikes/please don't send

I'm not religious so find lil use for that iconography...EXCEPT I love pictures and postcards of very old churches.

I rarely use kid stickers (unless they are for Joey's smashbook)and find it hard to use very tiny ones.
