May 16 2019 - I've enjoyed Being in some swaps again, but life is about to get a bit busier so I’ll probably have to slow it down again.

Things that are happening right now:

  • Finishing a yellow knitted blanket
  • Learning Spanish
  • #the100dayproject
  • audio book: ...?
  • 40 for 40

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 2019: MOVE

My verse for 2019:
Psalm 25: 4-5
Show me the right path, O Lord;
point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
for you are the God who saves me.
All day long I put my hope in You.

Things I like to make sometimes:

Collage Postcards
Dotee dolls
Mug Rugs
Knit hats, scarves, socks, and sweaters
Crochet amigurumi toys
Me Time

Stuff About Me

I just turned 40 in February, which feels super weird to me.
I've been married for 16 years to Dave (engineer and private pilot) and we have no children. I've been a born-again Christian since February 1982.
Moved around a lot growing up...lived in Washington, South Carolina, Massachusetts, and North Carolina. Also a little bit in Germany when I was little (Army parents!). Right now I'm happily settled in the NC mountains.

I'm totally a cat person. These days I spend my cat time with three "formerly feral" kitties, who sleep in our garage at night and play outside during the day (except when they visit me in the studio ;)

I'm on Instagram... @ tigerlilyknotwise

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 are some things I'm into at the moment:

  • deer (my personal mascot this year)
  • fun or pretty footie socks
  • handmade items
  • mug rugs
  • a good writing pen
  • your zine
  • something new to try!
  • Images/cutouts I could use for collage or ATC's

Colors: Purples tend to be my favorite. I also like greens and blues and earthy colors. I’ve really been into orange lately too.

Animals: Cats, deer, 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
  • D - deer, Dove chocolate
  • E - elves, elephants, Ecclesiastes
  • F - foxes
  • G -
  • H -
  • I - Irish culture and language
  • J - jigsaw puzzles
  • K -
  • L - lip gloss, Legend of Zelda
  • M - Monet's paintings, mail art, mini zines, muffin recipes, moon, museums
  • N -
  • O -
  • P - Punch Studio cards, pens, POP Pilates, painting, purples
  • Q - quotes
  • R -
  • S - snails, socks, Squishmallows, Spanish
  • T - The Princess Bride
  • U -
  • V -
  • W -
  • X -
  • Y -
  • Z - zines


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


On November 17, 2017 I had to say goodbye to my sweet Pippin. I miss this little face every day.


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 168 paper cranes!
