08/21/17 - My computer has finally crapped out and I can't afford to replace it so I am now accessing the web thru alternate means. This has put the brakes on my swapping as much. I still check in often so feel free to message me. I hope to resume as usual when I am able.
I love all types of crafts, but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE paper crafts! I am currently into flip books and junk journals, but am delving deeper into the ATC world as well as starting my exploration into Zines.. Here is a video of the Flip book Meg, Little Hot Tamale, made for me. Its one of my favorites ever! Also, Here is a flip book I made for one of my favorite snail mail bloggers. She featured it! SOOO pumped! lol I have been paper crafting off and on for about 30 years. I started with making broom dolls from the twisted paper, and went from there into all sorts of other crafts, including candle and soap making, jewelry making, sewing, crocheting,country crafts, and more recently I have gotten into altered items & junk journals, I actually won a blue ribbon for a journal I entered into the Fryeburg Fair (Maine's largest agricultural fair). If you would like to look at that, you can see it on my YouTube Channel, here.
My messy craft station, lol.

Here are my Granddaughters with my sister (Yes, she does Roller Derby
I have 5 fur babies- 2 Maine Coon cat brothers, Smudge and Rascal and 3 guinea pig princesses named Pixie-Anne, Maisie Lou & Hazel Potter. Pixie is 3, is spoiled and is a "nana's girl". We got Maisie on 8/27/16 at 3 w(h)eeks 2 days & she is Pixie's wicked cute BFF! We rescued skittishly sweet Hazel on 10/12/16 at about a year old and after almost 9 months of living side by side in 2 separate cages, we have successfully merged the BFFs and Hazy together into a "super enclosure" made from C&C grids and an XL twin size captains bed so they can now interact, talk, kiss, groom and munch on nummy hay all together. All of these spoiled ladies are super happy to be here and with people who love them.

I am a Minister & a self-proclaimed geek.. I enjoy fantasy stories and am enamored with fairies, elves and other mythical beings. I have always had an attraction to all things celestial, too, so things relating to the sun, moon and stars have been items I have collected for years.

I promise to ALWAYS send, and usually before the actual send by date. I also promise to always rate as soon as I get your swap. If you find I have not rated you, please let me know and we can figure out why, together!
First off, let me say THANK YOU for scrolling this far, lol. Here is where I will share what I like and dont like, in case you may need that for a swap.
I Love most all stickers!! Especially the ones I can use as embellishments in flipbooks and on paper crafting projects. Think Jolee's, Sticko, MAMBI, Reflections & the like (no reward stickers, please). I love roosters, elephants. dragonflies, butterflies, Mystical, Magical, fantastical creatures & lore. I collect post cards, office supplies (paper clips, pens, sticky notes, shipping tags, labels, brads, etc), Kawaii designed stationery & accessories. I love sequins and jumbo glitter, punchies and die cuts. I have cuttlebug and thin dies, as well as a plethora of the old red, yellow and green sizzix dies and alphas as well as a cricut create, but I rarely dig them out. I also have a few punches and edge dies, but a girl can never have too much ephemera, now can she?! I like Tim Holtz stuff and the vintage/grunge style as well as steampunk and would love to expand my collection of stamps and dies for the Tim Holtz line. I have almost all the plates I need to have to use the 12" dies in the cuttlebug - just need the "c" plate in the 12" length. lol wishful thinking, right now.
As for Tea.... I only drink Iced and it has to be Arizona, so that is senders choice - my son loves hot tea. As for Chocolate.. most anything but dark and for candy, anything but licorice - BLECH!
I am an ordained minister but prefer to stay away from sending or receiving religious kinds of stuff. I like to be able to control the influx of that into my home, as my religious beliefs may not lie entirely in line with yours. WE can still be best friends, tho! lol.
I dont read an awful lot, although I used to. Just dont really have the time. I suppose I like my stories spoon-fed to me in movie or television form, nowadays. My failing eyesight & other medical issues also play a large part in that. I love anything to do with history.
I would love to travel, especially to Ireland and Sweden but again - Medical issues... I grew up on the ocean, but live in the mountains, so I like lighthouses and country mountain type scenes, also love Amish culture so anything Amish related would be spectacular!
Post cards are a new obsession of mine, and I just started collecting them, so any kind of post card is welcome. Hand made, Naked, in an envelope.. all of them... except of course extremely religious. I mean.. If you want to send one of the Pope, or the Vatican, or that BIG statue of Jesus, or a cathedral or temple with awesome architecture, a representation of a specific religious figure, like Budda or one of the Hindu Gods/Goddesses, anything with Pentagrams and Moon/Luna type or "general belief" quotes as in - Be good to me, I'll be good to you, Live and let live, or Mother Nature/Earth. .... Go ahead and send - yes, please!!. BUT... if you want me to convert to something, are professing a particular belief or want to send praying children, "Bless" you and yours type, Scriptures or paintings of Jesus surrounded by baby animals ...please refrain.
My fandoms include but are not limited to the following in varying degrees, depending on the time and what mood I am in, so these are in no particular order & listed just as I think of them off the top of my head: Star Wars, World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones, Big Brother,
If I am in a swap with you, and you dont see info listed here that will help you out, just shoot me a pm! I try to check in here on the daily.
