About Me

I am a wife and the mother of three kids that are mostly grown. I work full-time as a medical transcriptionist. I enjoy crafting, reading, camping and spending time with family and friends. Some of my favorite times are spent crafting with my BFF and/or shopping for craft supplies! We make a yearly adventure of going to the scrapbook expo near us. I am a member of a card making club that meets monthly to make cards.

I like songs from all music genres, but I would say my favorite is that awesome 80's music!

I enjoy reading. One of my favorite authors is Amy Harmon. If you haven't had a chance to read anything she has written, you are missing out and need to give her books a try!

The only movies I don't enjoy are horror movies; otherwise, I am up for a good movie!

I am a TV junkie! I have a favorite show for every day of the week and love to use my DVR! I usually craft while watching one of my shows!

My favorite craft is card making. I send most of my cards at Christmas and enjoy making and sending Christmas cards. I enjoy crafting and being creative. I like to try new techniques. My newest craft hobby is bookfolding which I have really enjoyed. It looks harder than it is, although it is time consuming. I also enjoy doing ATC's, inchies, altered Rolos/MemoryDex cards, and tags. Mixed media art and collage fascinate me, but I am still learning the process of letting go of the clean lines and having things "perfect" and just going with the flow and embracing the creative commotion!

Some of my favorite things are dragonflies, butterflies, hummingbirds, lady bugs, flowers, leaves, anything fall, snowflakes, anything winter/Christmas, steampunk, paisley, owls, peacocks, feathers, keys, fairies, gnomes, mushrooms and woodland animals like fox, deer, elk, moose, bear, hedgehogs, etc. I honestly don't have a favorite color and basically like them all equally. I love texture and like to touch things. Needless to say, I don't like signs that say, "Do Not Touch!" I love quotes and words!

I basically have two hobbies ~ crafting and collecting things to craft with. I enjoy collecting everyday ephemera to upcycle/recycle to incorporate into my crafts such as stamps, packaging, junk mail, envelopes, pop cans, material from old clothing, lace, fibers, leather from old belts and purses especially if it has an embossed design, jewelry, watches, and cool tags off of things I have bought ~ I have even bought a shirt because I loved the tag that was on it so much! ;) lol

My favorite season is fall and I wish it would last longer. I just love the crisp fall air and beautiful fall colors, but who doesn't love a fresh snowfall in the winter, a spring rainstorm or a cool breeze on a hot summer day! There is something to enjoy every day!

EXTRAS: Although extras can be fun, please don't feel you need to include them to receive a heart. I would rather you take the "extra" time working on the swap for me than you taking time to look for "extras" to include with your swap!

I only push the sent button after I have dropped the swap off at the post office or the blue mailbox. If you do not receive a swap marked sent, it is lost in the mail. Please message me if this happens, and I will resend. Also please let me know if one of my swaps ever comes owing postage, so I can send you money to cover it. I don't always go inside the post office to have them weigh it because I have a scale and do my best to put adequate postage on, but I have noticed at my own post office different postal workers are more strict and require more postage than others.

I also have two USA only groups here on swap-bot if you would like to check them out to see if they interest you and to see if you meet the qualifications to join. They are:

Comment: Michele! ~ Thank you for the lovely flipbook! You are SO smart to send it flat! I wish I thought of that hehe. My mom was with me when I opened it and she was absolutely in love with it! She loved it SO much she asked to keep it because it brought her so much joy so of course I couldn't say no. Thank you so much for the effort you put into it, my mom has never asked to keep a swap before so it was that special! As always, it is such a pleasure swapping with you and I can't wait for the next one! Happy swapping! xoxo 🌸
Response: I am happy you liked it and that it spoke to your mom's heart too, so of course you had to give it to her - lol! 😁 You are such a sweet daughter and I can tell there is much love in your family! πŸ’ž Just keep being YOU because you are pretty AMAZING my friend! πŸ˜ƒ

Comment: thank you for the beautiful purple ATC! I really love how it turned out. How did you do the impression on the foam??
Response: You are very welcome! I am happy you liked what I made for you! :) It is a fun faux leather technique I found on YouTube by Tina Zinck called Fun Foam Leather and I love how it turns out. Here is a link to the tutorial - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w007bZJlNCA&app=desktop (sorry it won't let me put an automatic link in my response, so you will have to copy and paste the YouTube link above). Just be sure you use StazOn ink on the main image because I noticed that other inks will rub off and just leave the impression. But I do use other inks to distress around the edges and make it look more like leather. Hope you have fun trying it! Happy crafting! :)
