About Me

I am a mom of three daughters and a grandmother of five. I work part time and craft in my spare time. I was born and raised in New Orleans Louisiana but have lived in MS and FL. I love the south. I'm a southern girl through and through.

I have recently had my last round of Chemo this past December. I didn't do much crafting at all last year due to the hospital and Dr. visits. I'm so glad to be back at my crafting desk. It's such a therapeutic and positive place for me to be.

I love love love crafting. Some people call it my hobby, I call it my addiction. I've been crafting as a young girl and still do in my 50's. It's my true passion and my ultimate happy place. I'm always on the hunt for new ideas and techniques. I love making jewelry, scrapbooking, paper crafts, polymer clay and much much more. I enjoy sharing new crafting ideas.

My Likes.......

Some of my favorite crafting items are: washi tape, die cuts, stamps, dry embossing, wet embossing, Copic markers, vintage ephemera, stickers, watercolor pencils, punches, ribbon, anything fleur de lis and honestly any kind of crafting supplies.

I am currently working on gorjuss girls stamped images using both Copic markers and watercolors. I'm also creating shaker cards because I bought a Memory Makers fuse tool. I'm Having fun making envelopes with my new envelope punch board and having a ball designing pocket letters.

I'm not a big shopper but hand me a Hobby Lobby, Michaels or Joanns ad and a coupon and you can't drag me out of any of those places. I can spend hours in any of those places.

I have sold many of my handmade items at craft fairs, Christmas bizzares and other craft vendor opportunities. It's so much fun to participate at venues like these.

I have wanted to be part of a craft swapping community for a while now. I hope to be a part of this one. I'm looking forward to participating in the swaps.

P.S. I will only hit the sent button once I drop it in the mailbox. If you do not receive it in a timely manner please let me know. I will rate you the same day I receive yours.

Favorite Music

I love and still listen to late 70's early 80's music. Classic rock mostly. * Aerosmith * The Baby's * Billy Squier * Cheap Trick * Cinderella * Eagles * Elton John * 70's and 80's

Favorite Books

I prefer short stories but most of my reading is about how to's or DIY. Craft magazines.

Favorite Movies

Romantic comedies, thrillers and dramas. * titanic * Bridesmaides * Shawshank Redemtion * Gone with the Wind * Silence of the Lambs * the Notebook * all Disney Movies

Favorite Television

*Big Bang theory * The walking dead * game of thrones * The middle * modern family * GH now and then * food network (cuz I luv to cook)

Favorite Crafts

Oh gosh I love most all crafting. I love, stamping, scrapbooking, paper crafts, card making, jewelry making, polymer clay jewelry, and many others. One of my all time favorite things to do are to craft with recycled items. It's so much fun to repurpose things. Taking something old or unused and turning it into something new and fresh.

Other interest

Pinterest is a favorite of mine. 99% of my pins have to do with crafting. It's like hoarding without the mess. 😀 I'm constantly roaming the internet looking for new crafting tools and supplies. I watch a lot of YouTube channels for crafting techniques and how to's.

My latest

My latest craft interest are pocket letters. I'm looking forward to making them and swapping them.


I'm a newbie so I'm learning as I go along. I don't want to disappoint anyone so if I send you something and you are not happy please let me know before giving me a bad rating. I will read your profile for your likes and dislikes to assure that I send you something you'll enjoy.

I will not send chocolate through the mail during a hot season. Melted chocolate is unpleasant to open. Yuck!!!

I will update my profile as time allows.

I'm not crazy about:

Children's reward stickers, cartoon character stickers or anything similar

Fabric...I don't sew so I have no use for it

Felt or foam stickers
