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.

About Me

I am a single, SAH, homeschooling mom to 4, & nana to 2.
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 2, is spoiled and is a "nana's gurl". We got Maisie on 8/27/16 at 3 w(h)eeks 2 days & she is Pixie's BFF! These 2 girls live together in a huge 2 level enclosure. We rescued Hazel on 10/12/16 and she lives in her own large enclosure, right next to the other 2 girls. Pix and Hazy don't get along in the same cage, so we keep them separate but their cages adjoin so they can still interact, talk, kiss, groom and even munch on nummy hay together. We are waiting to rescue a baby as a cage mate for Hazy but until then, she is super happy to be here and with people who love her.

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.

Criminal Minds,
The Walking Dead,
How to Get Away with Murder,
Madame Secretary,
Drunk History,
Discovery ID shows,
Alaska The Last Frontier,
Tiny House World,
10 Things You Didn't Know About...,

Swap Bot!!

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!

Likes, Dislikes & more!

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.

I am also on Postcrossing and SendSomething.Net.
For now, RevBTB~ OUT!

Comment: HEy Beth! Your swap arrived today and yes i do remember having a monopoly game and the cards looked just as your get out of jail for free card did! Oh it took me back to my childhood fond memories of my brothers playing with me and rigging the game such that when mom called me and i came back they had changed the entire game on me....It was all in great fun! I think our monoploly game was 1960s though...Interesting! Thanks for sending me this swap card!

Beth, a very belated thank you for the amazing wishes you sent from my April AATW wishlist. I love the beautiful notecards! I was out of town for nearly the whole month of May so didn't have a chance to thank you 'til now.

shirleyinCA on May 25, 2017:

Thank you SO much for the wonderful Cavellini airmail postcards for my April Wishlist! Wow, I love them - and adorable "Hello Sugar" note card and classy clear packaging, too!

stephiedee on May 18, 2017:

You're welcome for the papers! Happy to hear they're new to you and you like them. ^_^ I pulled from older 8x8 pads in my stash, so that probably helped. I really don't get to buy paper pads much anymore and when I do, I get 4x6 ones (I convince myself that because they're smaller they won't take up much space in my stash).

tcornell on May 12, 2017:

Thank you so much for the ephemera! Yea Patty told me she was going to send me the bag you sent her, thank you for sending me a separate one so she would keep her bag! I really adore your flower fairy, she is precious! It is so sweet of you to send me these things... Big hugs, Tracy

@btbeth thanks for the welcome, and the generous offer to do a private swap – I would really like that! Let me get my profile together and then I'll message you to take a look and you can suggest what would make sense. Sound good? Thank you again for the warm greeting!
