About Me


UPDATED: 8/6/2017

Member of Swap-bot since August, 2006

Hello, from beautiful southeastern Ohio! :-D I'm 59 years old, I love camping, herb & vegetable gardening, spinning yarn, traveling, playing in the dirt, geocaching, attending Renaissance faires (in costume--I am a member of the International Wenches Guild), reading (especially horror, Greek & Celtic mythology, sci-fi/fantasy, and biographies), crafting, animals, growing houseplants, nature in general, playing World of Warcraft, and spending time with my family and friends :-) I love tea and coffee (and anything chocolate!) I collect cat items, and love incense, owl items, and anything with a moon and stars theme. I have five cats (Buffy, Angel, Midnight, Faelyn, and Tinker) and would love to have a household full of animals (when/if I grow up, I want an ark) I have a very dry, sarcastic, sense of humor, and my friends tell me it's hard to tell when I'm being serious or yanking their chain. really. I'm serious. My favorite colors are greens (especially hunter green), purples, and teals, and I'll read anything I can get my hands on.

I am always open to private swaps! Send me a pm if you're interested & live in the USA/Canada :-) (Unfortunately, due to mail delivery issues, I no longer do international swaps)

Favorite Music

Indigo Girls, Lady Gaga, Godsmack, Pink Floyd, The Offspring, Queen, Hootie & the Blowfish, Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Clannad, Aerosmith, Adam Ant, Billy Idol (unf!) Grateful Dead, New Age music, and 80's music (think "hair bands"-Bon Jovi, Loverboy, Def Leppard)! I also enjoy musicals and movie soundtracks (so sue me...I see you making 'gag me' motions back there!)

Favorite Movies

The scarier the better (but not necessarily gory)! :-)The Sixth Sense, The Rocky Horror Picture Show (I heart Tim Curry), all the Avenger movies & the Marvel Universe superheroes, Clash of the Titans (original & remake), The Immortals, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Princess Bride, Willow, Men in Tights, Shaun of the Dead, The Mummy movies, anything Monty Python, Ladyhawk, Final Destination, Silent Hill, anything with Tom Hiddleston!!!

Favorite Television

Midnight, Texas; Game of Thrones (torn between houses Stark and Targaryen), Grimm, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Law & Order (SVU), Dateline, 20/20, 48 Hours, Snapped, Family Guy, Two Broke Girls, Supernatural, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory...I also watch a lot of The Discovery Channel, Travel channel, & Sci/Fi too.....

Favorite Crafts

Crocheting, rolos, ATC's, pocket letters, altered boxes, zines, filled matchboxes, tip-ins, shrines, polymer clay crafts, altered bottle caps, pet crafts, holiday tree ornaments,altered journals, rubber stamping....basically anything but sewing (I ubersuck at that!) I love altering items (esp. unusual/odd items), if it stands still for more than a few minutes--I'll alter it! I love learning new crafts and techniques! Also, I am always willing to do private swaps--just pm me if you're interested!

About Me

I hate wearing shoes. I believe in karma. I'm an old soul, and I hug trees. If you look up "Capricorn" in the dictionary, my picture will be there. I am an earthy person. I love nuking Peeps in the microwave--yum (looks like a twisted Rorschach test only with warm & gooey goodness!) I can't stand heat, and someday I want to live where it never gets above 80 degrees in the hottest of summer (Washington or Oregon would be lovely!) I love heather, lilacs, and lily-of-the-valley, and I hate it when people are intentionally cruel to other living things (mean people suck.....honestly folks, we should be kind to each other....everyone has their own demons to deal with!) I love to laugh, and try to find humor in everything (sometimes, it's a stretch!) I have the strangest belly laugh, it's very ...um...distinctive. Sometimes I scare people when I laugh...hell, sometimes I scare myself --but I still love to laugh til I snort. I don't wear make-up or color my hair (unless it's a special occasion, otherwise, too much hassle)--in fact, I'm the "tomboy" that never grew up :-) Oh--and I collect rattlesnake tails...if you want me to send you one, just ask--they're quite unique. (I got bunches!) ;-)

Other Odd Things

Other than laughing, I love sleep. Sleep is good (though not as good as laughing). I worked for the same manufacturing company for 27 years, and retired last year in July, 2016 . I'm now looking forward to this next phase of my life, and plan on enjoying my retirement! :) I'm partial to fairies, castles, and dulcimer music, and I am probably the most laid-back, tolerant, person you'll ever meet (if I were anymore laid-back, they'd have to shovel dirt on me!). I love swapping & Swap-bot, and have found many great victims..um...friends here! ;-)

And One More Thing.....

Please, if you do not receive your swap from me, pm me and let me know! I always fulfill my swap obligations, and usually send with a delivery confirmation--except that DC only works for mail within the US! I try to put a lot of love & care into my craft and swap packages, and I definitely want to know if you don't receive it!

Favorite Tag Line

I like my men like I like my coffee....ground up and in the freezer.


I used to run with the wolves.....now I nap with the cats.

I don't have any skeletons in my closet.......I do, however, have a small black box of souls in my underwear drawer.

Likes & Nots

I'm not picky at all, but I especially adore chocolate (milk and dark....the darker the better), JellyBelly jellybeans, black teas, hazelnut coffee, Greek and Celtic Gods & Goddesses, fairies, Autumn (the season), yarn, owls, cats, ferrets, rubber stamps, zombies, stickers, push molds, and anything I can create altered art with (brads, eyelets, charms, large beads, dodads, dillybobs,--you name it) The only thing I'm not interested in is Dotees, FBs, Kawaii stuff, and people that are missing the humor section of their brain. ("Anal, table of one?....") oh. and coconut. Can't. stand. it.

Comment: Teresa! Outstanding ATC!! All the little details and the black and white with red accents, perfect!

I have never seen that brand before and these look so real (in the tiniest version) ❤️

I also will miss you and definitely hope that you stay in touch. The reason that I was able to stay so long is members here that became friends and who, like thread, kept me stitched together. Thanks so much for that. ♥♥
