About Me

SWAPPING PHILOSOPHY and PERSONAL STUFF

I rate. It completes the swapping transaction, and it's just the right thing to do. I also believe in rating fairly. I like to send a few extras with my swaps, if I have something I think you'd like, and you have no objections. I always check profiles for that info. I love reading your profiles, and I really like the idea of paying forward something you might use in a future swap.

I give out hearts for the swap you send, not the extras.

Please don't ever feel obligated to give me a heart. Please rate me for the swap I make and send, not any extras I may tuck in. Thank you. :)

I was born in California but grew up in Memphis Tennessee. I have three grown children, two sons and a daughter, Shawn, Dylan, and Erin. I also have 6 grandchildren. Danny, Mallory, Jake, Michael, Ava, and Evelyn. And a great-grandson, Fox. And I'm still in my fifties!

My husband, John, is in the Air Force and we move constantly, every 2 years, usually. We recently moved back to the states from Germany. ( summer 2016)

I am a non-smoker. I like to garden and read and I love movies. I believe in ghosts and I love anything Halloween.

THE MY WEBSITE LINK has newer swap photos.

You can check MY FLICKR LINK for examples of my older swaps. Click albums to view, or else you'll end up scrolling through many photos of our time in Germany. :)

Favorite Crafts

I like to do paper crafts. ATCs, Inchies, Twinchies, Tags, Bookmarks, Small Books, Matchboxes etc.

Here is my "LIKES" list, although, really, I am sure I will love whatever you send me. I value your creativity.

  • My favorite styles/themes are- Salvage, Vintage, Shabby Chic, Retro, Tim Holtz, Dark and Creepy.

  • Not into Victorian. Ric-rac, yes. Lace, not so much.

  • Almost any color works for me but I am not a fan of neon bright colors. I love pink.

    I also love Halloween.

For any future Halloween swaps I may join-

I love creepy, scary, vintage-y, glittery, dark-old-house, Halloween stuff. Any time of year. I can always use Halloween themed craft items. I keep my supplies out year round. I love the old Universal Monster films, and old horror films in general. Classic black cats, bats, and witches.

I definitely have a dark side, and besides Halloween, I love old murder cases and mysteries, such as-

Jack-the Ripper, Lizzie Borden, the Villisca Iowa Ax Murders, The Texarkana Moonlight Murders, etc.

  • I like old ribbon, buttons, sewing trims and notions.
  • Tim Holtz, Graphic 45, 7 Gypsies paper. Old book pages, ephemera.
  • Vintage and interesting postcards, ad cards.
  • Die-cuts, cricut bits, etc.
  • Anything I can use in paper crafting having something to do with my themes/likes. Hitchcock, Halloween, Lizzie Borden etc.
  • I like birds, toadstools, gnomes, Paris, werewolves, New Orleans, owls, bits of old hat veiling, tiny bottles and interesting brads.

So, if you need to send something to me (supplies) or make something for me (inchies, ATC etc), any of the above will make me very happy.

BUT, I am really easy going and easy to please. This list is only to give you some ideas for profile specific swaps.

As for "DISLIKES" - I don't really care for Kawaii or anything child-oriented. I don't offend easily, so, no worries there, and I like receiving religious items, especially Catholic items.

Favorite Movies

I love movies- I have a pretty good collection of Hitchcock films, and many, many, many horror movies, old and new. I also like some older foreign films and classics. I don't care for romantic comedies.

Favorite Music

I love Joy Division, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Bishop Allen, REM, Bob Dylan, The Clash, Dinosaur Jr., Hot Hot Heat, MGMT, Arcade Fire. I love music.

Favorite Books

I have been collecting vintage books for years. Especially children's books. I love Beatrix Potter and J.M. Barrie. Grahame and Milne. All the classics. I also love The Betsy-Tacy series. I must have read those books a million times.

I love to re-read the Harry Potter books. But I do read books for grown-ups as well- Shirley Jackson, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Flannery O'Connor are a few of my favorites. I love ghost stories and true crime.

Comment: Oh my, such a a wonderful package! I love beach themes and anything from the beach. Lately I seem to be making several swap items with beach themes and probably will be doing more so the goodies you sent will be fun to use. Also the plastic box will be very useful to store some of my painting things.

Comment: This was really, really nicely done. I can never get the handle of precise, uniform work like this and I admire it all the more. (My PLs are really oddball and uneven) Thank you for this Pinterest-perfect, beautiful thing. I laughed out loud at your DELICIOUS story, too - I had a friend who named his cat The Internet just so he could say things like "The Internet peed on the bed again".
Response: Thank you for your comments, really glad you liked the PL. Oh, the names we choose for our cats… :)
