About Me

Pray for our world


On 9/13/18, I shot a staple in my hand at work (T-50, 3/8" long). My co-worker took me to the ER where it was removed. I had 2 follow up appointments. At the second, the Dr recommended me to an orthopedic specialist. The Ortho Dr recommended surgery because part of my index finger was still numb (2 weeks later). I had surgery Tuesday, 10/2. Of course, it was the worse case scenario: I damaged my nerve; it was repaired. So, I'm one handed for 6-8 weeks. So, moral of the story: no time/craft intensive swaps.


My name is Meredith, I live in Milwaukee, WI with the love of my life/best friend/husband named Sam. We both work full-time. We love taking walks down to the lake or even just a stroll around the neighborhood. We've been together since May 8, 2007 and we got married June 11, 2016!!

Crafty Ideas

Paper crafting is still a passion of mine. I am always looking for ways to increase/improve my stash. I really don't scrapbook to much. I am always in need of adhesives and small fun paper crafty like things!

I am really into card-making as of late. I have over 100 wood-mounted rubber stamps (!) as well as a plethora of paper.

This is my collection, minus unmounted stamps and my alphabet collection:

I have a Cuttlebug and would love to swap embossing folders (USA only) and pre-embossed sheets (int'l).

If you're interested in swapping new/gently used, well, anything, shoot me a message and let me know!

Random Acts of Kindness

I love making cards. That being said, I would LOVE to send you or someone you know a little sunshine to brighten your/his/her day.

This is free of charge as a RAK (Random Act of Kindness). I can include a note from you, just a happy thought, or it could be blank. Some ideas include (but are not limited to):


hello/just because



religious or non-religious

Please PM me with the details no sooner than 1 week before you want the card sent.

I love any and all Batik fabric. If you ever have any piece 6"x6" or larger, I'll take it off your hands (or swap for it)! If you don't know what Batik fabric is, just Google it, you'll see what I mean :-)

I am in the process of collecting 6"x6" fabric charms to make a quilt with no theme. I am always looking to de-stash and swap out my fabric, so lemme know what you're looking for!

I just purchased a Husqvarna Viking Opal 670 for my birthday! I'm very excited. I've been using it like crazy, especially right before the holiday season. If you have any tip/tricks/ideas for making awesomeness, let me know!

In then end it will look something like this


Please don't feel like you have to send me something off my wishes, these are just for profile-based swaps.

  • Rolos(?) I have no idea what these are. Could someone help me out?

  • Postage stamps (new/used/international/domestic)

  • Zippers (any size/length/color) multiple zippers

  • New recipes (4x6 inches if possible)

I just finished the small project and LOVE it. Thank you for such an interesting and challenging MYSTERY FABRIC swap. I would join another one like it.

njstauter on Sep 7, 2016:

Got the fabric scrap and it will be an extreme challenge as both the color and theme on the fabric are not things I normally work with. Hah Thanks and I will get to thinking
