About Me

Hi everyone, I am a divorced mother of two kids, they are 20 and 18 so basically out on their own.

I am in a relationship with George Sanders.

I love crafting and am soooo glad I found this group.

I promise to rate every swap I receive and I expect the same from every swap I send out. I know we all have lives outside of swap-bot but if you don't intend to rate I don't think you should partake in a swap.

If you do not receive a swap from me please let me know so that I can resend immediately. Unfortunately the post office does loose mail from time to time. I do send out all of my swaps.

I have been flaked on before and it is not fun.

I am absolutely loving Swap-Bot and all the great people I am meeting and all the great swaps I have received. There are truly a lot of amazingly artistic people on this site.

I have also just started a new business called "The Eclectic Diva". I repurpose items, refinish and repaint furniture. I am in the process of finishing up a few items so I can take photos and get my facebook page up and running.


As for my likes I have many:

*Since joining swap-bot I have become addicted to ATC's!!!!!! They are my newest passion of artistic creations and I am learning lots of new techniques.

*Stamps- I love collecting used stamps, esp foreign stamps and I use them in all of my craft projects.

*Postcards - I am trying to collect one from every state - I have postcards from: Texas, Florida, Louisanna, Minnesota, California, Arizona, Utah, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, New Mexico, West Virginia and Colorado.

The color PINK - I should emphasize that I LOVE the color PINK!!!!!

Teddy Bears - esp. Boyd's bears

Hello Kitty

COFFEE - all flavored coffees, flavored creamers (liquid not powdered) and flavored syrups. I also like Mocha Frappuccino's and Salted Carmel Mocha Frappuccino's.

Tea - My favorite flavor is chai tea (chai spice, chai vanilla, etc..) but I love trying new kinds and you can send me any kind as I use teas in my craft projects.

Movies - I love all kinds of movies - Lord of the Rings - Harry Potter - The Help - The Twilight Series - Pirates of the Caribbean - just not any horror films.

Reading - I like reading mysteries, vampires, self help - I LOVE Twilight and started reading other books about vampires, right now I am reading the series by L.J. Smith.

Cooking and Recipes - I have a wonderful collection and always enjoy trying new recipes.

Garage Sales and Thrift stores - I like finding unusual things and I also love looking for books. I buy books just to buy them and have them on my book shelves around my house.

I love all things Paris.

Favorite Crafts

As I mentioned earlier my newest favorite craft is ATC's and this what I am focusing my extra time on and I am mostly doing ATC swaps.

I decorate journals and photo albums with ribbons and collage.

I make purses and fabric and tulle tutu's.

I also make fabric necklaces and bracelets.

I like trying new crafts and am hoping to make my kids t-shirt quilts for christmas this year. And I am also wanting to make a jean quilt.

Favorite Television

• Amazing Race

• Two Broke Girls

• Once Upon A Time

• Person of Interest

• The Mentalist

• The Grimm

• Apprentice

• Storage Wars

• Storage Wars Texas

• American Pickers

• Storage Hunters

• Auction Kings

• Auction Hunters

• Hoarders

• Duck Dynasty

• (as you probably noticed there is a trend up there. LOL)


When it comes to relaxing I like a nice cup of chai latte or coffee ( I love flavored coffees and creamers) sometimes I splurge at starbucks and get a mocha frappuccino or a salted carmel mocha frappuccino.

I enjoy bubble baths and love Bath & Body works my favorite fragrances are Twilight woods, Be Enchanted, Moonlight path, Dark kiss, Winter Candy Apple, Winter Cranberry, Paris Amour, Secret Wonderland, Midnight Pomegranate, Carried Away and Pink Sugarplum,
NO vanilla or gingerbread of any kind.

I also enjoy candles and melts - same scent requests as above.

I also enjoy reading, crafting, journaling and sewing to relax.

Favorite Books

I LOVE reading and collecting books, it's a weakness I have when I go to garage and yard sales. I bought four new books last Saturday.

I will read just about anything lol. I just started reading the Hunger Games (I try to read a book before I see a movie).

I also just read a great book called "Alphabet Weekends" by Elizabeth Noble.

If you have a favorite book or just a recommended read I would love to hear from you.

I currently have a collection of over 200 books - including a collection of Nancy Drew books that I am working towards acquiring a complete collection.

I am also currently on the hunt for another bookcase as I have books just sitting everywhere. LOL
