Hi my name is Peggie. I've been swapping online for many years on various sites and I'm so happy to be a part of Swap-Bot! I enjoy creating different crafts and I'm always willing to learn something new or try something different. I'm a scrapbooker by heart. I love to cook, garden, and listen to books. I'm an avid upcycle/recycler....if I can paste it, paper it or embellish it then it shall be repurposed or reused!
Swapping is a passion I enjoy and crafting helps me with the stress in my life. I have 2 kiddos and 10 felines that call me mom and whom I adore. I have more friends online than I have in person.
I'm not a picky person, I like just about anything! If I don't like something (which is rare), I always have someone who will take it off my hands ;)
I LOVE Antique stores and flea markets...I'm always looking for old catalogs, dictionaries, music, or books in other languages.
Styles that I like: steampunk, anything vintage, victorian, shabby chic, gothic/dark, americana, whimsy, western (old cowboy), ancient artifact, earthy, tribal, vintage circus (NO clowns!)
I'm not really into: cutsey, country, psyco-delic or anything religious
MY LIKES: Bright colors (think elementary school), earthy tones(fall and autumn colors), deep rich colors (think royalty). My fav colors are yellow, pink, and green (my crafty space are these colors) or brown and cream (what I create is usually these colors).
I'm always happy to receive:
socks--mid calf or ankle--I'm a sock hoarder and will instantly heart for ANY socks sent to me...but they do need to be new...I'm not into used socks...
*Postcards that are filled out (unless they are vintage and they don't need to be)
*Handmade postcards and stationary my favorite theme is Alice in Wonderland (Tim Burton perferred)
Anything for my cats or anything that have cats on it or are cat shaped--especially magnets--I collect them!
Anything Halloween (my fav holiday) I have skulls, black cats, goblins, gargoyles, and witch hats in my crafty space
embossing powder in gold, black, silver or any other color
stickles in diamond or dark rich colors
small metal picture frames
empty and/or altered altoid tins
empty and/or altered mini boxes
anything Tim Holtz
Mini Albums--already made or chipboard albums
bling of any kind
old dictionaries, catalogs (1950's and older) or books in other languages
Cookbooks or recipes (no hand-written please)
tea (I'm not into fruity teas, more of an earl grey gal but will always give something new a try)
jewelry store-bought or handmade especially anything made with beads! (I don't make jewelry, but I would love to learn)
inspirational wall hangings
ribbon, lace, dyed seam binding
bug/gardening items (very fond of metal!)
hand sanitizers in a citrus or vanilla smell or no smell
mini notebooks---spiral or glued edges
magnets of your state, country, or any of the above themes I mentioned...
THINGS I HAVE TOO MUCH OF:
â€¢ paper scraps
*flat teacher reward/calendar stickers--I have enough to fill TONS of shoe boxes!
â€¢incense or anything with a really strong odor
ALLERGIES: Smoke, perfume, incense
My FAVORITE FOOD Stuff:
*chocolate covered raisins
*anything chocolate covered--but for shipping purposes only in the winter!
*gummy bears or worms
I'm love alternative/pop/rock music, listen to octane on Sirius radio. Depending on my mood, I sometimes like Lady Gaga or Bon Jovi. I'd rather listen to: The Pretty Reckless, Shinedown, Hollywood Undead, Rob Zombie, Sixx: A.M., Papercut Massacre, Rock Mafia, Sugar Red Drive....you get the picture and I love CD's...I'm still old school!!
I LOVE the Big Bang Theory...I stumbled acrossed it on TBS and always get a kick out of it. I complain about reality t.v.... but find it's very addicting...some of my favorite shows include: storage wars, parking wars, shipping wars (notice a war theme?) Lol The Biggest Loser, Prospectors, Ghost mine, Gold Rush Alaska, and Bering Sea Gold, Dirty Jobs (love that Mike Rowe) I enjoy HGTV and Food Network to kick the blahs...get some mojo
Can I just say anything altered on YouTube...one of my favorite sites is Laura at Follow the PaperTrail! I love mini albums...so small tickets, scraps from travel maps, stamps, stickers, anything small and flat get used in my albums. I find it's so easy to print a picture add these bits and pieces and voila you're done! I love my 12x12 albums. They take up a lot of space and though they are my favorite thing to create, the mini's are my obsession right now!
I will always give 5 Hearts if you send me ANYTHING STAR WARS or ALICE IN WONDERLAND--- LOVE anything Star Wars or Alice!!!
