About Me

My life thus far... I am an eclectic soul with much love for my family and unending love for my daughter who was diagnosed on the Autism spectrum at an early age. I support those with disabilities and the desire for our society to be more accepting of their conditions. Human behavior intrigues me and I enjoy learning new techniques and curriculum in the education field. I completed my teacher certification last Fall. College is very addictive and I have a desire to pursue another degree.

I am extremely dedicated to friends, family, paper crafts, and my faith.

We just adopted a puppy! We are in heaven with our sweet Oreo, who is a bischonpoo. I am obsessed with buying her toys, jackets, treats, and bows. All love.


My current craft trends are junk, collage art, and magpie journals.

Experimenting with bullet journaling, watercolors, and acrylic paint stencils.

Love items with birds because daughter's nickname is J-bird.

Interests include traveling, meeting people, adapting to cultural surroundings, and reading.

I have been on a huge Disney kick the last year three years. Christmas and birthday's are my usual times I visit.

One of my fave places to go to is New Orleans because I adore Cajun food and listening to Jazz.

Also a beach lover! Usually go to Myrtle Beach with family but love Turks and Caicos, Aruba, and Pinel Island. The feel of sand on my toes is heaven! Prayers for all those affected by Irma.

Music is a huge range from 80's, Jazz, Pop, Rock, ALternative, holiday, Christian, gospel, and Blues.

Favorite Television: Killing Eve, Schitt’s Creek, Doctor Foster, Chopped, Jane the Virgin, Younger, Power, Outlander, Walking Dead, The Man in the High Castle, oh wow! That's a lot of TV!

Books: I read fiction and non fiction. Currently readin: Chameleon in a Candy Store by Anonymous.

My house decor: traditional with modern farmhouse style with mosly grey, black, and beige.

I love to bake! I like making cookies, cakes, brownies, lemon bars, Hamantashen,, bread, and cupcakes. I have a sweet tooth.

Love chocolate but trying to quit. :)

Favorite scents are Clinique Happy Heart, Philosophy Amazing Grace and Pure Grace.
Love Philosophy lotions and soaps, BBW vanilla bean body cream or any of their nourishing hand soap that isn't too floral or musky.

Not one to do my nails often. Only in the Spring and Summer. So unglamorous.

Favorite beverage in morning is coffee in my Keurig. Tazo Zen green tea, Lemon zinger, Starbucks Breakfast blend, and other medium roast coffees.

Not so crazy about

-anything Neon

I pledge to rate!

I strive to rate my swaps and hope those receiving mine will too! I always send my swaps on time and enjoy sending happy mail all over the world. If you would like a private swap, please PM me. :)

Also, my motto is be nice or just don’t swap.

I love to read my partners profiles and discover about them when I send a swap. I take pride in what I send out. If for some reason you don’t receive from me, please let me know and I will resend. Case in point... I recently had a swap from last year finally arrive in July. Crazy!

Comment: Thanks for hosting this swap. This is one of my most favorite types of art to do. And your journal to me turned out fantastic. Love all the sayings and pictures. You did a very nice job with all the colors-different textures. Thanks for being a great partner and host and sharing with me. Happy Fall! Oh-almost forgot-thanks for the sweet little board book-that will be a fun challenge to alter-maybe reverse collage!
