About Me

I am a 33 year old female, married, two kids etc. etc. etc. I am very creative and good at everything but not an expert at anything.

FYI: I haven't been swapping at all for a long time and would really like to start again. (life will do that to you!).

Oh and for those GOOD hosts that take the time to check profiles...yes I did get a 1 on the very last rating I got almost 4 years ago. That swap was sent out late but partner did not update my rating. I always send out quality work and have not recieved any questions or complaints about what ive sent. Please message me BEFORE banning me from your swap

  • Also note that since I am an original member of swap bot I have a lot of uncategorized swaps which would mostly fall under Type 3 Swaps as there was no "Type" categorization when I first started. I understand that many swaps require a certain number of a certain Type of swap so please take that in mind as well before banning me from your swap.*


Favorite: Blue, any shade of blue. Metalics, and glittery items. I also like autumn color combinations.

Dislikes: Pastels and super girly colors.


Favorite Scents: Vanilla, fresh baked cookies, lavender, stawberry, fresh warm laundry, wood, leaves, fresh cut grass, rain, real chocolate, most natural things. Fruit scents are ok as long as they are not too sweet.

Dislikes: Cheap Pine, farts, bathrooms, stinky shoes and ear wax


Shapes: Stars!

Animals: Giraffes (even though my nick name is "Panda"), cats, dogs.

Mythical Creatures: Faeries, especially works by Brian Froud not the cutesy ones, elfs, dragons


Favorite: 90's Punk Ska, but i'll listen to anything as long as it sounds good. I also adore celtic muisc but am into every type of music. I also like classic christmas music.

Dislikes: Hard core rap and parody music.

Favorite Movies

Ever After, Sound of Music, any christmas movie, lord of the rings, Lion King, most independant films. etc. I really like Period movies.

Favorite Television

anything on HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, National Geographic, TLC, Discovery, etc.

Reality T.V. shows.....just watch them to make fun of people.

Favorite Crafts

Mixed Media art. But anything really. I enjoy making things and tend to do more design drawing. Cant get enough of creating collages and altered Art. As of late I've been sewing a lot making purses and kids clothing. Expanding my creative side

Food and Beverages

I LOVE chocolate! and unique candy from other countries.

I am an advid coffee drinker and would like to try coffee that is made only in your town, state or country.


I horde any type of material that I could use for mixed media projects. Everything from bubble wrap, film slides, beads, cardboard, glass bottles, fluffy stuff, metal wire, feed bags, wood boxes, interesting sticks, cans, fabric, ribbon, clock parts, etc. you get my drift. My craft room closets and buckets are bursting at the seams. My husband "supports" my hording to some extent. Just as long it doesn't drift into the rest of the house its fine!

Comment: Hello Gailey, Thank you for being my partner for the "Loteria ATC LA MANO" Swap. Your creative way of making the hand Loteria ATC was unique and special. I like as well the little heart ring you added tIo the hand--it made it look so dainty. Your ATC will be a great addition to my Loteria series. I hope we have opportunities to swap with one another in the future. Barb sleepingrover2010

Comment: Thanks for the card--here you were worried about tears, and that didn't happen, but our "friends" at the P.O. managed to get icky black marks all over the front of the card. Ah well, certainly not your fault and it does happen. Mahalo!
