About Me

Hello :) I am a stay at home mom to a 3 year old boy and 4 month old girl living in Wilmington, NC. I love all kinds of crafts, and am pretty sure I have tried most at least once. Things i'd love to try next are letterpress, gocco print, and pottery. I've had my Etsy shop for almost 2 years, I make and sell woodburned and painted boxes (mostly tree themed) and paper items.

** I ALWAYS send out my swap packages...PLEASE contact me if you havent received anthing before rating, I will be more than happy to resend!**

things I like

I'm new to swapping, but saw a section like this on a few other profiles...

I'm kind of obsessed with paper, ephemera, and embellishments. I buy tons of things because i like the pattern or print, then don't want to use it for anything. I look for anything that has a vintage or antique feel, anything bird, text and handwriting (especially other than english).

I also LOVE rubber stamps, and if its something that I've never seen anywhere, thats even better.

I'm not really into cutesy things ( disney, winnie the pooh, etc), but an occasional cupcake print or sticker is great. I've actually gotten a little bit more into pink and "cute' stuff since having my daughter.

You can check out the items I have for sale in my Etsy shop to get an idea of what kind of style I like.

Favorite Music

Jimmy Buffett, country (Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, George Strait, Toby Keith), anything old...I dont listen to much new music, although my 3 year old little boy really likes Lady Gaga and Britney Spears.

Favorite Crafts

Woodburning, paper crafts (tags, notecards, decor), I have a sewing machine that I would love to eventually learn how to use, right now I'm clueless. My mom was an awesome seamstress, I always had smocked dresses and handmade clothes when I was little, I'd reallly like to learn how to do the same for my daughter.

Favorite Television

I dont get to watch much TV these days, but some of my favorite shows are SouthLAnd, Real Housewives of ATL, NY, and the OC, 20/20 and Dateline, and I just started watching all the wedding shows on WE...I love David Tutera. I used to help do wedding flowers before I had our second child, I guess thats why I like wedding shows. :) Oh, and Dog the Bounty Hunter :) Got to go to one of his book signings this year and meet him and his family, I'm a dork, but it was AWESOME. My favorite TV show of all time would have to be Twin Peaks...I think I was around 12 when it was on TV, but I have LOVED it ever since, I love pretty much anything David Lynch does. He's awesome.

Things I'd love to get...

I have a new-found love for Kawaii :) But, there is no where around me to get anything :(. So...anything Kawaii is great, I dont know anything about characters or brands, so as long as its cute, I'll love it!

Vintage postcards/photos, especially the ones for National Parks, I love the artwork on them.

Postcards from anywhere! I have no preference as to how they are sent or if they are written on, dated, etc.

Japanese deco tape

Anything with a botanical theme

Really just anything "vintage-y", but I'm not into retro 80's type vintage.

I try to scrapbook for my kids (need more time!), so any scrapbook items that are boy/girl related are great!

Anything Cosmo Cricket or October Afternoon, I love, love, love ANYTHING they make.

I'm really not very picky when it comes to receiving handmade items...I'd love to get anything that someone has put time and thought into creating. :)

Please no religious/christian themed items.

Just in case anyone ever has anything laying around that my little boy might like :)...he loves anything having to do with trucks, cars, airplanes, etc..

Retrotronik rated for Newbie Surprises Quick Swap #2 on Jun 29, 2010
Response: I wish that you had contacted me and let me know that you didnt receive the package BEFORE rating me...and also, since I resent it the day after you rated me a 1 (June 30) you should have received it by now (July 8)...not sure why you wont answer any messages on swap-bot or your email. It makes me mad that I have now sent you 2 packages for this swap, and you won't re-rate. I'm still new to swap-bot, and now have to explain this 1 to every swap I want to join. UPDATE 7/15: I just received the 2nd package I sent you back in my mailbox marked "unclaimed"...you should really make sure your address is listed correctly, its not fair to people who are matched with you in swaps to be held accountable for you not receiving things if your address is wrong.
Comment: Thank you for the extra-sweet notebook! (:
Response: You are very welcome!! Thanks for the heart :)
Comment: Thank you so much. I am always looking for things with light houses on them for my son in law's stocking and the cards are perfect.
Response: Great!! I'm glad you can use them :) Thanks for the heart!
