About Me

Hello from Wisconsin! We are known for beer & brats, cheese in every variety, the Green Bay Packers, the WI Badgers, country music festivals, WI Dells, farming, and Friday night fish fries. I live in a small town near the state line between WI and IL. I retired from teaching last year after 33 years dedicated to students with special needs. In late summer of 2014, we got the devastating news that my DH of 28 yrs had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I lost him on Easter Sunday. To cope with the grief and loneliness, I renewed my love for crafting and it has been good therapy for me. I have a grown daughter, Heather, age 24- with no grands in sight. Some of my favorites are: pink, doing DIY projects around the house, paper crafting, baking, gardening, thrifting, reading, and spending time with my pets. I love social media, esp Pinterest, YouTube, and Instagram .

Themes I like: Farmers Market,woodland animals/plants ,flowers/floral designs, sewing, field guides related to nature, hearts, dogs-esp. Beagles, cats/kittens, animal lover in general, chickens/roosters, postage stamps, mail art, collage, camera graphics, reading/books/print, vintage inspired, botanical images, sunflowers, lace trim, Pioneer Woman style, French Postal-script/icons, mason jars, cupcakes/sweets, butterflies, birds, (esp. hummingbirds and goldfinches) Tim Holtz style, baking/recipes, mixed media.

Things I'd Like to Receive: Used postage stamps, old playing cards and postcards, scraps of fabric, embroidery, fun pens/stationery, travel memorabilia,tickets,clips, stickers, napkins for decoupage, charms, gelli prints, vellum, washi samples, simple recipes, coupons, quotes, old book pages/ephemera for junk journals, positive/inspirational messages, handmade envies, I'll love anything you send, because it came from the heart 💖

About Me

I've recently had a big flaker for an art journal.(Barbara Marcotte-dragonangel517) We had 2 months to work on it, so it was a major project. If you can't send out for some reason, you should at least contact the person. I would be happy to change the rating if she decides to send the swap......Another gripe I have is people who don’t bother to rate.. We have no idea if you've received it. Some people can get rude about being reminded after a week or 10 days has passed that they haven’t rated. It only takes a couple of minutes. That's part of the swap process....dont sign up if you have sending or rating problems.

Comment: Holly, this is amazing! I love how you organized it and put little extras throughout. It is beautiful...I will cherish it always. I'm making lavender cookies and tea then sitting down to enjoy it. Thank you!
Response: Hi, I'm so glad you like it. Took me awhile to decide how I was going to lay it out. Then I was trying to decide, should I organize it by themes or poet collections, as you can see I chose the latter. I've been reading tons of poems in the last could of months, it was hard to narrow it down. Have really enjoyed reading about the life of the poets I included, which was interesting. Hope you will enjoy reading through it.

Comment: Holly, your lovely journal made it safely through Irma territory! Thanks so much!
Response: OMG Karen, I'm so glad that it came to you! I didn't look at your address until I put the finished journal in the envelope. I wasn't sure where you lived in Florida, but was thinking you might have evacuated and what do they do with mail when it can't be delivered.....so thanks for letting me know you received it. Hope it might bring a smile or two in the wake of this disaster. Wishing you the best!

Comment: Thank you for the magazines! It has been a long time since I looked through a stamping magazine so it was pleasant leafing through them. I have never read a Room to Create Magazine so that one will be fun to go through too.
Response: You're very welcome! Hope you can get some ideas/inspiration from the magazines. Thanks for the rating and 💟.

Holly, thank you so much for the note with my pocket letter... I'm thinking of you this season... I've decided that grief is a journey that some of us know well...
