About Me

A note for my partners: I am a procrastinator. I try to work ahead, but I will usually send your swap ON THE DUE DATE. Don't panic--I always send. I also have this horrible habit of forgetting to hit "send" after sticking it in the mailbox. I don't know why this is such a problem for me--I blame it on my ADHD! If you notice your swap is not marked as "sent", please contact me! If I notice my mistake, I will always contact you. If I do send late (because life happens!) I will contact you. I've done this exactly twice--both partners were extremely gracious and understanding. If you send late to me, please let me know, and I would extend the same graciousness to you.

I'm a sarcastic, spunky, fun-loving wife and mother of two. Between kids, family, church, advocacy, housekeeping, and working a full-time job as well as my own side business, I am busy all the time, and creating things is my method of stress-relief! Both my children have special needs, so I am very active in advocacy and awareness issues.

Some things I like:

Elephants and giraffes

My cats and my guinea pigs

A good steak, spaghetti, and chocolate pie or cake

The colors green, purple, teal, and blue

Any place with mountains or water...or both!

Walking in the woods

Exploring nature with my kids

Growing and preserving my own food

Poetry

Birds, nests, eggs--realistic and whimsical

Favorite Crafts

Paper crafting, scrapbooks, journals, paint, wood, some sewing and quilting, reworking old furniture and creating house decor. My style is whimsical, eclectic, and colorful, but I also really like antiques and distressed items. I love learning new craft styles and techniques!

Don't Like

I am a Christian. I respect that your beliefs may be different than mine, and ask for the same courtesy from you. Please don't send me skulls, anything "evil" looking, anything representing death, nudity, or profanity. Keep it clean and fun and I'll love it!

Items I love to use

I love to re-purpose old things in new ways.

Different kinds of papers--maps, sheet music, homemade paper, book pages, etc. but no scrapbooking paper scraps please...I have plenty of my own!

Fibers, thin ribbons, unique yarns, lace bits

Jewelry pieces (earrings, pendants, chains, etc--even broken ones)

Unique or handmade envelopes

Unique stationary, memo pads, notecards

Anything with a whimsical, free-spirited theme

Anything with birds, owls, nests, eggs, etc. on it

Anything miniature! I love tiny things :)

Comment: Family recipes are my favorite! My grandfather taught us how to finger crochet gorgeous string. It was several years later that I discovered you could do make more than just strings! Don't tell, but I often cheat and read the back before I read the middle of a book. I am too impatient. Thank you for all the goodies, I will check out your latest reads!
Response: Thanks for the nice comment and the heart!

Happy January Birthday from the USA Paper Crafts Group!

TC on Dec 14, 2014:

Ellie, I mailed the Pink Christmas ATC to you about 10 days ago. I noticed you hadn't rated me yet, so maybe it's still in transit, but please let me know if I need to resend.
