About Me

Married Christian "Mama" to 3 little girl Miniature Dachshund doggies, Beulah, Gloria & Daisy. Happy to be married to my bestie who makes me laugh...one of my favorite things to do!

If you have a dachshund or a miniature dachshund and would like to do a one-on-one trade of any kind, then just p.m. me.

I love to sew, crochet, and especially quilt! I also like to do embroidery and cross-stitch, but quilting is my passion!

I like anything with miniature dachshunds!

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, garment construction, hand embroidery, crochet & especially scrap quilting.

I LOVE FABRIC----any kind! Truthfully, I am not picky and would give a heart for any extra you send my way!

CROCHETing cotton dishclothes is my fave little thing to do when i want to create, but don't want to think too hard! I've also produced scarves, wrist-warmers, afghans, and other little oddities like flowers, mug-hugs, bowls, cell phone case.

I like to make cards, but just about any craft makes me happy! I like to try new things.

Foodie Fun!


.I like em' all...I'm quite adventurous and will even try loose tea as long as it is in a sealed package with some kind of labeling to indicate what it contains.

Especially like any black flavored tea, for example: English Breakfast. Also like herbals and flavor-infused green teas.

COFFEE Anything from outside the USA would be especially awesome---Sealed and packaged!

KCUPS-I like to try coffees, teas, and other drinks!

COOKBOOKS I am taking gifts of old cookbooks to add to my collection...so if you'd like to get rid of some that have lost their charm...please send them my way!

Especially interested in ethnic cuisine or cultural history/cookbooks, or a good church fundraiser type cookbook is full of all kinds of hidden surprises!

I really like to COOK!

Paper crafts

I'm exploring these art forms.

I've done a few ATCs and I'm gaining confidence the more I create. Usually I'll create 2 for a swap, the first one for practice and to keep and the second for my swap partner. If you are my swap partner for an ATC swap, I'd appreciate some feedback on what you received from me please.

Inchies....so cute and hoping to improve my art form on a miniature scale!

SMASH...stuff to make my first book a memorable project! Any tips or suggestions on creating are welcome!


My husband is very supportive of my creative adventures and I like to create things for him in appreciation of him. So any extras you would like to share are gratefully accepted.

Anything Aviation related, airplanes, motorcycles...especially Indian Motorcycle!

Cowboy, horses, fire arms, old cars...guy stuff.


I like to receive postcards of: landscapes state or country maps tourist-y postcards historical buildings or landmarks panoramic views flower or botanical gardens tropical themed, beach, or ocean animals I also like receiving blank postcards in envies. Also, handmade fabric postcards are heart worthy! Your photographs printed as postcards...awesome!

Extra Stuff

I also like anything that has a tropical theme...especially having to do with the beach, ocean, sea, Carribbean and Puerto Rico!!!

Socks...I love weird, crazy socks with bright colors, unusual patterns, or characters (like monkeys or cupcakes, for example).

Fun, colorful, graphic T-shirts (size L-XL)

Bookmarks are another little fave of mine, especially tatted ones or handmade...oh and book thongs!!!

Crocheting, quilting & sewing magazines.

I like cotton, wool & bamboo yarns. Or any blended material yarns, and yarn from Australia, New Zealand, or Japan.

Fabric--any kind really, is just the best little extra! 100% cotton quilting fabric, linen or even silk!

Lace, trim, leather, hemp, ribbons, especially grosgrain!

flowers, wooden beads, wooden buttons

Jewelry handmade: earrings, bracelets, necklaces...especially hemp & beaded!

Yard art and wind chimes.

As stated earlier, COOKBOOKS please!

Things I don't like

The color black, fairies, skulls, licorice, anything death related, halloween, day of the dead, horror movies or related to any of these things...please nothing on the dark side!


Fabric preferences:

***100% quilt shop quality cotton, also linen.

****Solid or tone-on-tone shades of any color.

*****Novelty prints or fabric with words printed on it.

I don't like themed fabric with halloween, day of the dead or skulls.

Comment: How absolutely wonderful-I have never gotten an ATC that was a quilted piece of Art! I am just amazed how unique it is and of course I love the little Scotty dogs running in the front of the house-how precious! I adore the vintage cards you sent along for me-I will put them to good use! Thanks for sharing your talents with me and swapping!
Response: I'm delighted that you called my ATC for you "Art" because quilting is my favorite way of expressing my creativity! I knew you'd like the cards...glad I sent them! Thanks for the heart.
