About Me

Look forward to Swapping.....

I enjoy making patchwork quilts, hand quilting, baking, weaving baskets, scrapbooking, card making and photography. I absoulutely love flowers - I believe that I inherited this from my Great Grandmother Shifflett. Lilies and roses are my absolute favorite.

Over the past two years I have developed a strong love for cupcakes. I took Wilton cake decorating classes at a local craft store and began with decorating cakes. Over the years, my passion has grown to cupcakes. Each year for each of my employees birthdays I bake a set of cupcakes, decorate and give them to that individual. It's amazing how such a small homemade treat can brighten someone's day and bring a smile to their face.

If you love cupcakes as much as I do - check out Stampin' Ups new Cupcake rubber stamp set and stampin wheel.

My favorite colors are earth tones / neutrals, dark purples, greens, blues, burgundy, and brights. I am not much on pastel colors, as you would be able to tell by looking at the colors I have chosen for the quilts that I have made thus far.

I obtain the most enjoyment by brightening the days of others, bringing a smile to someone's face or by helping them in some way.

Favorite Crafts

I have been weaving baskets since 2000 and have made over 200 to date. I make all shapes, sizes and colors. I am hoping to update myEtsy site soon to include all that I can offer.

~Patchwork Quilts is a passion of my heart. I have been fortunate to inherit this craft and art from my Great-Grandmother Shifflett. A surprise to most, I prefer to hand quilt rather than machine quilt.

I enjoy Sewing: Quilts, Wall Hangings, Baby Quilts, Curtains as well as other crafts.

~Ever since I was a little girl, my aunt Peggy made homemade chocolate chip cookies, cakes, the icing from scratch and decorated the cakes. I remember getting to eat the icing that was left in the bowls. I also followed in my aunt Peggy's footsteps, I thoroughly enjoy baking, from scratch that is, decorating cakes and I just love cupcakes. Cupcakes are so cute, easy to make, versatile and so enjoyable! I don't know what is is about cupcakes, but I love them, am addicted to them. I prefer to make cupcakes any day over a cake! I enjoy receiving recipes from others, so I can branch out and try something new. I have found that the recipes I receive usually turn out to be some of the best.

~Scrapbooking - I enjoy putting my memories into an album for everyone & myself to cherish. For the albums will be around after I am gone.

~Card Making

~I am new to ATC's. I admire the art of others with their ATC's and look forward to joining the wonderful world of ATC's.

Favorite Materials

~Textured Cardstock

~Ribbon - I absolutely love ribbon

~Chipboard / Chunky Board cutouts

~Brads, Eyelets

~Decorative Embellishments

~ I love receive postcards from other parts of the US or world with stamps and the postmark. Ever since I was a little girl, I have admired stamps.

~Recipes from others, so I can branch out and try something new.

~Photography taken by others of nature, scenic, dogs and cats.

Comment: Thank you Thank you I love what you created with the goodies I sent. Wish I could give more hearts.
Response: I am so glad that you like the ATC. I must admit, all Yellow was very over whelming and challenging at first. There was just something missing so I added the dry embossing. I really am glad that you like the ATC.
