Favorite Crafts

I crochet, cook and bake, make everything under the sun from scratch (cleaners, mattresses, pillows, clothes, soap, lots and lots of yummy food!), sew quilts, and clothing, make rugs, paint, write and draw; I also scrapbook (though this is not really my 'favorite'...I feel like I want to have memories preserved for my kids)

About Me

I am a Jesus loving, married to an amazing man, kind of hippy-ish, young mom raising three beautiful boys (7, 5, and 1) with one princess who's 3; we have a yard full of edible plants. My husband is one of the greatest blessings in my life. Jesus is the biggest blessing in my life! I take on a lot of projects, and I finish most; I do have some UFOs in my craft room, but I'm trying to work through them. :) I have a tendency to settle for nothing less than the best in my efforts. I am obsessed with real food, real milk, done from scratch, with love cooking, and all the hard work that comes with that. It is SO worth it. :) And I say hippy-ish because I have a distaste for teflon, FP in beds, chemical cleaners, prescription medication, artificial anything and dye/GMOs/corn syrup/ingredients I can't pronounce/MSG... probably lots more lol

It should also be noted that I have pierced ears but they are gauged (00) so I can't wear regular earrings...they would have to be re-swapped or given to my niece (not that she would mind! :)

ALLERGIES: I cannot use anything with chemical scents/perfumes or dye. So, even though I love to smell girly, I cannot use most body products unless they are scented with essential oils and are very pure. Thank you so much!

I am Especially Looking For

Pop tabs (clean, any color, but not painted.),

I'm also really into yellow (think sunshine not easter egg), scarves, scrap fabric at least 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"(especially creams, whites, reds, yellow, and grey), Send me something yellow and it will make me smile. :)

Specialty fabric I would love (at least a fat quarter): small brick print, "water themes"(like fish, jellyfish, whales, pirate ships, etc) in small scale (think smaller than 1" designs), hello kitty, lego, ninjago, TMNT, Captain America, ninjas, trucks (especially construction vehicles), the Avengers, Superman, the Hulk, Spiderman, and foxes

I would also love lace trim for skirts and dresses for my little girl; at least one yard.


Anything homemade by you,

planting new things in my garden,

the color GREEN (deep green is the best) or Yellow,

I'm more of a deep colors girl than a pastels girl.

yarn (natural fibers),

sewing, crochet, or redwork patterns,

Owls, swallows, foxes

homemade toys,

chocolate, esp dark! (Summer is here...120F this week! Melt warning! :)

vintage sewing patterns (think flow-y 70s shirts and big full gypsy skirts or I especially love vintage patterns from the 50s and 60s),

Swap Cards,

Bible verses with a little bit on why you sent me that passage,

Positive, uplifting, make ya smile ANYTHING, really. :)

My kids are really into dinosaurs, big trucks, tools, coloring/painting, bugs (a nice bug catcher or plan for one would be sweet!), Thomas the train, puzzles (age appropriate of course), also, learning activities like very basic science experiments, shapes, or letters are great.

Learning activities for phonics or numbers 1-20 much appreciated!

We have a play kitchen so if you make play food or send felt/fabric/crocheted food you bought, that would rock!

We have great piles of stickers, so unless you think they are themes my kids will especially love, please don't send them.

18" doll clothes always welcomed

Please don't send candy for my kids; I am super picky and would rather just ask you to not send it than truly show how anal I am about what I allow. LOL :) Thanks~!

Also, if you happen to be a homeschooling momma, I would love to hear what curriculum you use, why, and what the pros and cons to it are. I love the advice of others and the fun stories that come from other moms! :)

My husband loves the football team the Eagles, anything football, really; candy, hiking and biking, Smallville/superman, X-Men, the color blue, and cheesy comedies/action movies, 3x T Shirts.

I Dislike

Anything pagan/wiccan/magic/wizards/witches/spells etc, anything with graphic 'adult content' or swearing, pastels, most Disney (except Cars, Toy Story, or Wall-E), cats, plain paper or paper in tiny, unusable sizes. Also, we do not celebrate Halloween and I don't teach my kids about santa or the easter bunny...so I have no use for anything with those themes.

A Side Note

I re-use packaging if possible. I will re-swap things I can't use. I give hearts according to whether or not someone takes time and puts effort into something, not just if someone sends a lot of stuff (though we all like to get big swaps, I'm sure :). Especially for things like small swaps or email swaps, I heart anyone who is putting their heart into it. Along those same lines, sometimes I do send extras, if I have them, or even if I'm just moved when I read your profile to send you something specific. It's not to get hearts, but to make someone's day. I'd like to see more swappers being all about the giving. If I want something specific, I will go buy it. You send me whatever you think I will like, and I will most likely love it. Or, my kids or my husband will. :)

Comment: Thank you for the bundle of sunshine! I like the Bible verse card you made, and quilt piece. The googly eye make me laugh. Thank you!!!
Response: I thought the googly eyes would be funny. :) I'm glad you didn't just think I was a goof ball. Also, the "quilt piece" is a coaster...for a warm cup of coffee or whatever you enjoy. :)

georgiafae rated for A MUG RUG Challenge!! on Oct 14, 2014
Comment: OHHH! I love this! Not only does it have the peace sign on it which I'm sure you know I love but I DO like the smaller size. My art desk isn't that big what with all the supplies I keep around so this size is just PERFECT! Your zentangled envelope was part of my Happy Mail today-thanks for swapping and you did a great job!
Response: Yay! I am so glad that you liked it. I actually made one mug rug before that for the challenge but I didn't like it that much...so I made a second one. :) It came out just the way I had hoped the second go-around.
Comment: Emily loved the letters! She wants to reply and thank you. She would also like to be pen pals with Weston. Hope that's ok!
Response: That would be great! My kids LOVE getting mail. There just aren't enough swaps for them. :) If she wants to keep writing, I know they will want to keep writing back.

Comment: Thank you! I really like way you wrapped my little gifts. The watermelon and the ants are so cute. And the bunny paperclip is adorable. I will save them for a rainy day. I like what you wrote on the envie with the smiley faces. I hope to swap with you again. Have A Happy Day! :)
Janell rated for TCH: Little Gifts on Aug 19, 2014
Comment: Thank you for the gifts, I'm saving to open them when I have a not so happy day. Thanks! I couldn't wait any longer and opened my gifts this week - I like the square you made, it's displayed on my crafting shelf and thank you for the bookmark and seeds too. :)

jamon rated for Two Cups of Tea and a Profile Surprise on Jan 28, 2014
Comment: Hi Jenna! Thank you for the lovely goodies! And beautiful envelope! I didn't know Oregon Chai made tea in bags! And I haven't tried the Fresh and Easy teas, I'm so excited! Where did you get them? I'm always on the prowl for ginger teas. I can't wait to make the recipes you sent! Thanks so much! :)
Response: Fresh and Easy was a chain store here in the west coast that went bankrupt this year. It was a favorite of mine and will be missed. :( I'm so glad you enjoyed my choices. Not everyone enjoys ginger (but I do). Don't overbrew unless you really like ginger though. :)

Comment: Thanks so much! I love Seeds of Change, and order from their catalogue fairly often. :)

Comment: Weston we just got your letter! Crystal literally did a cartwheel when she saw it haha. She really loves the strawberry short cake pictures, your letter, and the sticker sheet. One of them was not colored so she is coloring it now =] Thank you Weston and Lilliana =D

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like my quilts. It didn't take too long to quilt. :) I wish I was better at machine quilting but I can never seem to get the lines straight. I would love to be able to successfully machine quilt. I love making quilt tops, but despise the actual quilting process! Haha. Thank you for taking a look. As of now, I'm posting something new every Monday!

Best, Courtney
