January 16 - My Kickstarter went live yesterday! Pippin the Cat Coin Purses Any help in sharing on social media is appreciated!

November 17 -This morning I had to say goodbye to my sweet Pippin. My heart is in a million tiny pieces right now.


If anyone is interested in a private stocking stuffer swap or a handmade mug rug swap or a Dotee doll swap, lemme know!

Things that are happening right now:

  • Kickstarter Make 100
  • Teaching POP Pilates!
  • Etsy
  • Learning Spanish
  • Knitting a cardigan
  • Leading a Book discussion/knitting group!
  • Catching up on ATC jams
  • Contemplating this and that

If ever something I send doesn't get to you, please let me know so I have a chance to correct it. As much as we rely on the postal service, they too make mistakes and lose things. I get it.(where are my keys again?)


About Me

My word for 2018: Fresh

Things I like to make:

ATC Jams
Dotee dolls
Mug Rugs
Knit hats, scarves, socks, and sweaters
Crochet amigurumi toys

Stuff About Me

I'm 38, married for nearly 15 years to Dave (engineer and private pilot)
Totally a cat person Meow meow meow >@@<
Somehow I've become a group fitness instructor

As Far as Swaps...

I find myself joining less swaps these days. Mostly because I don't need "stuff". So I'm being a little more selective.

Here's some things I can always use:

  • trees are kinda my life theme right now (Jeremiah 17:7,8)
  • fun footie socks
  • handmade envelopes
  • fitness related images/stickers/quotes
  • handmade items
  • mug rugs
  • a good writing pen
  • your zine
  • something new to try!
  • Small images/cutouts I could use on ATC's or in zines (in threes for jams)

Colors: I like purples, greens and blues, earth tones. There aren't many colors that bother me, except maybe that Safety Green...

Animals: Cats, foxes, an elephant here and there...

Postcards: Preferences are art or animals, especially trees, cats, foxes, the moon, or anything off my alphabetty list below :)

I like my postcards stamped and written or drawn on. If you don't know what to write, send me a good quote, a short poem, or an interesting fact, or a verse that means something to you :)

That Alphabet Thing

  • A - Autumn
  • B -
  • C - cats, Celtic designs
  • E - elves, elephants
  • F - foxes
  • I - Irish culture and language
  • L - ladybugs,
  • M - Monet's paintings, mail art, mini zines, muffin recipes
  • P - Punch Studio cards, pens, POP Pilates
  • Q - quotes
  • S - snails, socks,
  • Z - zines


Here are Joey & Silver (with the white spot on his forehead)...our 2 little half adopted feral kittens. No relation to Pippin ;)


My beautiful Carolina sky...


Things I Don't Prefer

  • vanilla scent
  • crudeness, rudeness and nudeness
  • Only known allergy is cucumber (I know, right?)
  • cheese crackers
  • raspberry...the fruit, the flavor and the scent
  • TEA

My Personal Counter

Currently I have made 167 paper cranes!

Comment: You board was so colorful! I enjoyed it a lot. I’m glad I noticed your message, while I was feeling down about the cold. I particularly loved the Captain America outfit and the fun fact about Churchill saying OMG. I saved the Pilates moves too.
