Favorite Books

I mostly read mysteries, crime, and modern day romance novels.

For craft books I like Tim Holtz's books. I also like Becky Higgins and any scrapbook layout sketch books.

Favorite Crafts

I currently am into scrapbooking, cards, altered items, and ATCs.

I really love Tim Holtz and grunge/vintage type things. I own a Cricut and have tons of carts I don't use nearly enough. I like to be up with the newest products and techniques. I really like the following scrapbook companies/designers: Jillibean Soup, Tim Holtz, Tattered Angels, 7 Gypsies, Bo Bunny, SEI, and on and on...

Stuff I don't make (or haven't tried yet), but love: steampunk type jewelry, pin-up girl type items, handmade jewelry, collages, handmade whipped soaps and sugar scrubs, amigurumi, and dotee dolls.

About Me

I live a pretty normal life working during the week and scrapbooking or seeing friends on the weekend. I love to travel and have been to many European countries, Morocco, the Caribbean, and the Bahamas. I'm thinking about going to South Korea in the next year or so to visit my brother. He teaches English there. After that, my next destination will probably be NYC as I have only seen it from the airport.

I have swapped scrapbook/craft items on a local board and the Cricut MB.

Wishlist for Swaps

-anything cool made by you :)

-postcards ~ I prefer them mailed naked, with a note, and stamped with a cool stamp if you have one. Some types I enjoy are touristy ones, multi or single view, local customs, local buildings/churches, recipe cards, funny, cartoon, animal, logos, art, and I even like to receive fun ad cards. I will also take blank ones in an envie for trading. Really I love all types of PCs. Also, please let me know if I happen to send duplicate postcards to you. I will most certainly send a different one! I would love to receive a postcard of the Olympics, whether send naked or several in an envie. I am open to trading anything to receive these postcards.

-Tim Holtz, grunge, vintage, pin-up girl, steampunk, gothic type items

-I love all things Paris

-cute/cool stamps (non wood block preferred)

-journaling spots/blocks, I journal on just about every scrapbook layout so I go through a lot of these.

-travel items (I am currently working on my Europe vacation album)


-recipes (I have a 6x6 recipe album, but regular size recipe cards are perfectly fine too)

-Airmail stickers

-deco/washi tape

-Address labels with my name & address

-quirky, fun stuff

Comment: Dear Kelly, Before anything, I'm so sorry about the extreme delay in rating this. I received the letter during a tumultuous period of transition in my life. I honestly only got to read it now, 7 years later. Thank you so much for the Simpson stamps and awesome card! You were truly one of my favorite folks to swap postcards with. Both times we exchanged cards your thoughtfulness was evident in the card you chose, the note you wrote, and even the stamps!💖 If you're still up for PC swaps, let me know! Have an awesome day ahead.😊
Comment: Thanks so much for your lovely lists!
Comment: Thank you very much for the interesting postcards (7!) which arrived today. Hard to pick a favourite but I did especially like the map of Ohio with the cut-out!

Comment: Hi Kelly, thanks so much for the yummy p/c which arrived today. I think I will have to try this recipe - who could resist? Yes, I love collecting recipes and p/cards like this are hard to come by in Australia, so I will treasure this one to be sure. I hope we have the opportunity to swap some time again - take care for now and happy swapping! Cheers, Barbara
