About Me

Updated 8.31.15

I am a prompt, and often early sender. If you have not received your swap, please PM me before you give me a 1 or 3. Thanks so much!

I open my mail at the computer, and rate my swaps immediately. If I have not rated you, then I have not received your swap

I'm a SAHM in the Greater Seattle Area.

I have a 10 year old son and 6 year old girl who share the same April birthday!

In my free time (when I can find it) I work as a freelance illustrator under the name Cobalt Moon. Feel free to view my portfolio link above.

You can also find some of my work available on Cafe Press. line

My Son (Kasey)

He's 10 years old. He likes Astronomy, Minecraft, and Garfield. (He's in the 5th grade)

He enjoys Hard Dot to Dots, Garfield comics, and Legos. line

My Daughter (Victory)

She's 6 years old. She loves her big brother so much she was born on his birthday! (she's in the First Grade

She loves My Little Pony, Garfield, and Minecraft. She also loves to draw. No paper is safe in our house. line

Favorite Crafts

I tend to do my best work digitally, but I always get crafty in the fall & winter.

I enjoy decoupage, cross stitch, and plastic canvas. I dabble in beading from time to time.

Before kids I was an avid letterboxer and enjoyed carving my own stamps. I still have my stamp carving supplies and occasionally get the urge to pick them up again.



I have my own Kids Bento Blog. (See Link Above). I sorta fell into it, but sure do enjoy it. Just recently my son told me that all the kids gather around to see his lunch at school. How cool is that?! No wonder he doesn't want to eat school lunches... except on Pizza Days. LOL.

I sing in a women's barbershop chorus in the Sweet Adeline's organization. I absolutely love it and look forward to our rehearsals every week!

If you're looking for someplace to sing, I suggest you check out a chorus in your area. See the Sweet Adelines link above! line

Regarding my User Name

I'm not French. I don't speak french.

I don't really like grasshoppers. Except maybe Jiminy Cricket or The Cricket In Time Square.

Sauterelle is a name I picked a few years back for an online character I was playing at the time. She was short and green and jumped around a lot.

Plus I liked how sauterelle sounded out loud, so I still use it online from time to time.

Please - don't send me any grasshoppers or grasshopper related stuff. Ew. ;-) line

image I love the Sting CD! You know, Amazon didn't even send a receipt. I received a huge bubble envelope with just a CD inside. It was kind of a surprise, but I think they may be having problems in the mailroom (the last thing I ordered came with a receipt that belonged to someone else who had ordered completely different things!)

Just want to let you know that i LOVE YOUR ICON --- ever after is my very favorite movie :)
