About Me

I am a Christian, married mom of 2 awesome little boys. I have a cute miniature schnauzer puppy. I love to read, craft, sew, embroider and write in my journal. I am a former teacher and librarian who now stays home to care for my children.

I do not flake.

I promise to send all my swaps. If you did not receive something from me, PLEASE let me know. Something has gone wrong in the mail, and I will resend.

I promise to rate.

I like to reuse/recycle, so please forgive ugly packaging! :)

Favorite Books

I LOVE to read! A few of my favorite books include:

Water for Elephants,

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn,

The Great Gatsby,

The Kite Runner,

The Jacky Faber Series,

The Red Tent,

The Kitchen God's Wife,

The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

The Giver Quartet

Likes & Dislikes

I love happy, colorful things (pastels, brights, whatever! I love 'em all!).

I love "pretty things" (i.e. flowers),

vintage and vintage-looking items,

wholesome funny or silly things,

girly things,

inspiring quotes.

I like birds,

lemons and limes,



fun stuff for my kiddos,

cute stuff for my boy dog.

I collect vintage handkerchiefs and Minton china pieces (no particular pattern).

I prefer handmade/DIY/unique items as opposed to store bought/mass produced.

My house is decorated with warm, inviting colors. It's pretty traditional.

Other things that would make me smile when I open my mail would be:

*ATCs, ATC sleeves, papers

*foreign and/or vintage stamps (cancelled or not)

*black teas

*address labels

*fabric scraps, trims, lace



*unique buttons or beads



*vintage or foreign postcards

I would love any used copies of crafting/sewing magazines! I am especially interested in "Mollie Makes" magazine!

I don't really like dark, morose or gothic themes. I don't love contemporary art. I don't like scary or vulgar themes. I don't like Hello Kitty or other Kawaii.


I'm really addicted to swapping teas! It's so fun to try something new and different, that I would never have found if not for swapping! :)

I love black teas, especially fruit-flavored black teas.

I don't really like many herbal or fruit teas.

You can check out my shopping list on Steepster (link above) to see a specific "tea wishlist." However, I love surprises, too!

I have been lucky to recieve many wonderful teas from many wonderful swap partners! Here are some of my favorites (I'd love to get my hands on these!):

*Garant Svart Te Skogsbar

*Twinings Passion Fruit Mango & Orange (Flavored Black Tea)

*Twinings Blackcurrant Breeze

*Any Nordqvist flavoured black tea! (i.e. Viisasten Tee, Tsemppiä!, Olet Ihana, Tiikerin Päiväuni, Keisarin Morsian, Sadepäivän Ilo, Karibian Aurinko)

Jbeth rated for ISS: Any ATC Goes on Sep 7, 2013
Comment: Thank you so much for the ATC's. Each one was as if you had truly chosen them just for me. I love washi tape so yeah! The chevron silver was great, and I have a couple of swap friends in New Zealand, so the NZ postage stamp ATC was the icing on the cake. Smiles for your day.
