About Me

I live in Oklahoma with my hubby and two doxies.

I host a sewing show on youtube called "Whitney Sews." It started as a final project for my Video Production II class. The first episode was supposed to be a little bit cheesy, but I actually got a good response from it when I posted it to youTube. So I keep filming more episodes...and still am 5 years later.

I used to be an audio book narrator. I really loved doing the kids books because I got to be a lot more animated and use different voices. Now I work part time at a thrift store.

I love receiving mail! So every time I send a package (either for my etsy stores or a swap) I hope I'm sharing that same feeling with someone else!

If you send something that you think I'll like...then I'm going to like it because I will appreciate the thought you put into it!

I've never done a private swap, but if you want to do one then send me a message and we will see what we can work out.

My favorite colors are cerulean and kelly green and my favorite animals are elephants and orcas.

Favorite Books

So many...Anne of Green Gables, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Autobiographies, To Kill a Mockingbird, Nicholas Sparks books, Ella Enchanted, Far North, My Side of the Mountain Trilogy, Little Women, The Magic of Ordinary Days, The 10th Kingdom, The Hatchet, Defenders of the Universe, Jannette Oke books, Nancy Drew and Hardy boys Books, and many more...I however am NOT a Twilight fan. Right now I'm mostly into historical fiction christian romance (that's actually one genre), Native American books- either history books or fiction with a Native American theme, and autobiographies.

Favorite Music

Hanson, Elvis, classic country, southern gospel, Lawrence Welk type music...I like just about any kind of music and my favorites change on a weekly or dayly basis. Mostly though I think my favorite songs are the ones that hold the most memories... :)

Favorite Television

Five Mile Creek, Dr. Quinn, The Lawrence Welk Show, Project Runway, Will & Grace, Numb3rs, Parenthood, Big Bang Theory, Two Broke Girls, The Vicar of Dibly

Favorite Crafts

My favorite type of crafting is sewing...but I don't think of it as a craft. I consider sewing to be a good portion of my life, between my youTube sewing series, my handmade etsy store, and all the personal sewing projects I work on.

I love making ATCs! I've never considered myself to be an artist, but ATCs are a nice, nonthreatening way to do art.

I also love doing other 'crafts'...anything from making cards (not very good at it), magnets, carving stamps, jewelry making...basically I will give any craft a shot.

Things I like

Hanging out with friends, Branson-especially Silver Dollar City, looking at and taking pictures, jeans, thrifting, new crayons, nostalgia, music, puppies, bubbles, swaps, laughing, vintage lace, swimming, blue, sewing, ban, reading, jolly ranchers, facebook, television, cooking, my canon rebel camera, new clothes, brochures, Discoveryland!, backpacks, The News On 6 at Five, orcas and dolphins, the smell of mom's cooking, hugs and kisses, and dancing in the rain.

Things I dislike

Chocolate, coffee, gold, waffles

Comment: Thank you for the great ATCs. I usually do collage themed ATCs as well. I really like how you wrapped each card in old patterns; I'm keeping the patterns to incorporate into ATCs. Thanks again.
Response: I'm glad you liked them! I had a lot of fun choosing which cards to send :)

Just wanted to throw in my 2 cents worth about your 3.. I blocked that person also. After I read her profile, I wasn't amused at all. I am sure she would not like anything I did or sent either. :) I adore the ATC you made me and I would swap with you anytime, too!

MisfitScrapper on May 22, 2010:

Congrats on the wedding!!!!

MisfitScrapper on May 22, 2010:

Hey....I just read the awful rating she gave you! I read her profile...she is a spoiled brat...so,I blocker her, I wouldn't want to trade with her..EVER...It was a no spending swap...how annoying! I doubt she could have be pleased with anything...brush it off! You are welcome to swap with me anytime!! Hugs:)) Hope you have a better swap experience next time!! Have a a great night:))
