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:

  • Teaching POP Pilates!
  • NaNoWriMo
  • Watching The Three Musketeers on BBCA
  • Knitting a cardigan
  • Reading Knit Together by Debbie Macomber
  • 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 2017: Flourish

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
  • micron pens (I'd love some sepia tones)
  • 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: If sending me a postcard, I prefer art or animal cards. Love to get handmade postcards. Not a huge fan of touristy cards. 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 :)

I'm up for a private swap just about any time. (US only though, as my postage $ is limited)

I turned out to be a pretty terrible pen-pal, but I'm good at postcards. So if you send me a note on a postcard, you're guaranteed a reply!

That Alphabet Thing

  • A - Autumn
  • B -
  • C - cats, Celtic designs
  • E - elves, elephants
  • F - foxes
  • I - Irish culture and language
  • L - ladybugs, Lara bars
  • 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!

Thank you so much for ALL my November AWG wishes. We love Asian food and often order a similar dish to the recipe you sent me. I Cant wait to make this at home and being lower in fat is a huge plus! The WWII recipe is just so neat :)
