My Flickr is finally working

UPDATE: I am finally back but still recovering from a bad fall that resulted in a broken elbow and a messed up wrist. I will be doing my crafting with elbow sleeve as well as a wrist brace. After 3 months my elbow is still huge and swollen and my wrist is inflamed with a bone out of place so recovery has been long, slow and very painful. I will do my best for my swap partners but a lot slower than normal. I will do my best to meet the mail date and if I’m late I will contact you, please be patient with me. I’m hoping that doing something I love will accelerate the healing process. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

I have been away for the holidays and awaiting the birth of my first grandchild. He arrived Jan 6, 2016 and his name is Jack, after my father. I am so excited to be a new grandmother.

My current interests are making junk journals and love to collect things to put in them. ATC's, tags, rolos, inchies, twinchies, bookmarks anything where I can use images and embellish. I have recently started making journal pages and I enjoy those as well. I also like to alter things and collect all kinds of different items and embellishments that I can use in alterations.

ITEMS I LIKE: I love images anything I can fit on an ATC, Rolo, Journal Page, or junk journal. I love vintage ladies, men, children, gypsy, ballerina, fairies, Angels, butterflies, flowers, seasonal, animals, dogs, objects etc. Frozen Charlottes are a new fave I love the minature dolls as well as images I can use on atc etc. I also like Victorian an retro images as well as the unique, weird, funny and different all kinds of images that I can use. I also collect all types of embellishments such as lace, trim, diecuts, metal pieces, game pieces, charms, bling, resin, crochet, something handmade I'm not picky surprise me. I still love paper as well. I love anything shabby chic or vintage both styles are my favorite!

I am lovin the Flamingo's and pineapples anything to do with beach, lake, camping (especially those retro campers) just too cute, fishing and the hula girls can't forget them.

About Me

I live in Oklahoma and I am married (12yrs ) I have two grown boys who are wonderful young men. I also have 3 dogs that are rescues. I never intended to adopt 3 dogs (chihuahua's) it just happened that way and I love all animals and try to support them as much as I can by raising money doing bike runs and giving what I can for their charities. I got into crafting when my son left home and I turned his room into a crafting place, my room where I can play with my crafts and forget about everything. I have decorated it "shabby chic." I like the muted soft colors such as pink and green, lavender. I even have a pink and clear chandelier. I am in the process of organizing all my crafting supplies. Just when I think I have enough and all organized, I find something else I think I need and the organizing never ends. I love pretty boxes to hide my messy craft supplies. I hope I am not the only one who does this. Can anyone have too many crafting supplies? I pretty much like unique and different things as well.

Likes and Dislikes

LIKES - I like to collect decorative paper, die- cuts, embellishments, ribbon, beads, paper/fabric flowers, Tim holtz items, anything with "Harley Davidson" motorcycles, like decorative clothes pins, mini-hangers, anything that is crochet, pretty scraps of material, pretty book marks, rubber stamps, vintage postcards, stamps from other countries, ATC supplies, and anything you could probably think of I will most likely find a use for.

I like anything from Shabby Chic, Victorian, Vintage to Industrial Chic, and rustic, steampunk, etc. I like to make crafts that require a distressing techniques on boxes, charms, papers etc. I also like the pretty style like the Paris/Eiffel Tower things that are lacy, girly, fluffy. I love animals especially dogs (chihuahua's) and Owls. I also like to decoupage using papers that includes vintage looking script paper or pretty napkins. I also like ideas or instruction for a craft item that I can make. I recently began collecting vintage images of witches, love it on a tag or ATC. I like the vintage photos of vintage girls, vintage ladies, vintage pin-up ladies, black n white or anything different.

I like to take ordinary objects and alter them into something completely different. I like to use rusty metal pieces, junk that most people may throw away I will find a way to recycle it into "my little piece of artwork." I also like the cute but kind of creepy images of Ryden and Mab Graves. I would love to receive something altered by you.

I don't have one particular style when it comes to crafting because I don't want to be limited I think it depends on what I am trying to create and I like to keep my options open. I am really very easy to please.

**Would like to receive ** - All types of ephemera, love printed images, especially vintage and Victorian, embellishments, unique paper, lace, ribbon, die cuts, handmade envelopes, easy to please.

CAN'T HAVE - Due to a chronic illness I am not allowed to have any sweets in my diet. I hate to sound picky, but I would rather you give those items to someone who can get enjoyment from them since I can't anymore, thank you. Since I can't have them I like to craft with pics of sweets like cupcakes, pretty candies etc.

DISLIKES - I DON'T LIKE PARTNERS WHO DON'T RATE!!!!! NOT COOL : I think non-raters are worse than flakers to me because I put a lot of times and effort into my swaps. I would much rather receive a rating based on my swap.

I am very easy to please and like a variety of styles. I don't like anything "blood/slasher gore," but I do like different, unique, crazy, freaky and love Halloween and all the characters especially like vintage witches, I also like like Angels and crosses, etc. Mainly anything shabby chic and if it's light pink I will love it.

I guess if I had to choose something I don't need it would be plain envelopes and plain stationary, childish items (cartoon characters etc.), reward stickers, no Disney.

My favorite colors are soft pink!!!! and green (pistachio or mint green) peach, lovin all the pastels that are in style right now. I also like the primary and bright colors so it depends on my mood and the project..I like to incorporate all colors into my crafts so no color is off limits. I also,like vintage, steampunk.

If I am doing something wrong or you didn't receive my swap please send me a message to correct. Due to the price of postage I don't send certified and some of my things have got lost in the mail so contact me and I will resend. I try my best and take a persons profile into consideration when possible. If there is something you don't like please let me know I can take criticism, I am trying to improve myself as a crafter as well as a good swap partner.
