About Me

I am a married SAHM of 6yr old twin boys. We live on a non-working farm with chickens, 2 spoiled cats, and my doggie companion Chance who is a cockapoo! I really love gardening and making garden decorations.

I love to scrapbook, ok ok I am a avid scrapbook supply collector! haha I love all things girly, flowery, glittery and sparkly! Im not too picky as long as its beautiful. My favorite colors are pink, turquoise, lime green and orange. Those all together make me happy! Of course now Im learning to love rough and tumble blue and green and orange! lol

I know my craft time is limited so I will only be doing a few swaps here and there that interest me. I just dont want it to become a job, but a fun past time/hobby. I dont believe in having to spend a lot of money or having to have exact name brands but I do believe in quality and being conscientious of good craftsmanship.

Favorite Crafts

scrapbooking, crochet, basic knitting, little sewing and fairy gardening. I am a crafty person and have done a little of most things.

New found love: PLANNER decorating! I love my Pink Quilted ARC Jr. from staples. Disc Bound is the only way to go! Im a DIY girl and have it filled up but now it lacks decor! :-) My favorite colors listed above is how I am decorating. I like stickers for the monthly "holidays" to decorate my monthly calendar.

Things I collect/wish for:

  • fun shaped paper clips for my planner
  • magnetic bookmark clip things
  • fun goodies for my planner or scrapbooking journaling etc.
  • markers or colored pens
  • WASHI TAPE! so much in love with it!
  • Birds on a Wire.. birds in general.
  • Roosters/chickens
  • flowers of any kind, shape or color(love prima etc)
  • Letters and Numbers...especially K
  • jimminy cricket
  • unique (or not so unique) embellishments that are tiny or giant(i do mini books a lot so I need small stuff and I like extra large things for 12x12's)
  • buttons count as embellies! :-)
  • really liking felt stuff lately especially the layered flowers...yum
  • plants/seeds-perennials, veggies and annuals, or even heirloom from your own garden. Zone 5
  • pink ribbon stuff(breast cancer ribbon)
  • Prima brand tiny ink pads shaped like irons. Love them!
  • spray inks
  • tea is preferred over hot cocoa but I do like the flavored expresso/capucino type drinks as much as tea. prefer sugar free(but wont turn any away)

  • scraps.. I can always find a place for a beautiful scrap of paper, ribbon or fabric.

  • sudoku.. easy to medium. Im obsessive about it so I like to do the quicker easy ones or I will do nothing but the puzzle till its done! I tear them out of magazines, newspapers anywhere you find them! I love them all.

  • Notecards, I have found you need a lot of them for here! lol

Surprise me, I love sort of silly things too! I like it all.

Favorite Colors

PINK! Or any bright fun colors eg. turquoise, orange, lime green and of course PINK! :-)

Love love love deep blood red, sort of cranberry variation? know what I mean? lol not burgandy.

Craft Room is eclectic, what I would call candy colors.

for the boys books: I love blue/orange/green and pretty much any boyish stuff (like little yellow bicycle boys stuff and anything that goes with MM Jake line not necessarily that brand)

Few other things...

These are things I love, not what I expect to receive. Just want to convey my style. :-)

english tea, china, traditions and manners.

cake stands (real passion for)

vintage 50s table cloths

inspirational/subtly religious sayings/quotes/messages

White milk glass

Marilyn Monroe, she was the definition of sexuality

ONLY like soft scents like lavender, chamomile, freesia etc. Nothing strong or overly sweet. (have allergies)

I also like texture. Sparkly, textured paper or embellies make me feel like a kid again. Soft and/or fuzzy fabric makes me do crazy things! You do not want to see me with chenille! :->

Comment: Thank you for the lovely decorated egg and the extra ones for the girls and I to decorate.
Comment: WOW!!!! That's all I can say for this package. Actually, there's more I can say but I don't think the words have been invented yet. The chunky pages were gorgeous! I love the faerie page most of all, the corset was amazing! The best part, I now have a new bookmark to use lol. The Day of the Dead page was killer as well. The stickers you included will definitely be put to good use. I love the "E" in the corner of the faerie page, it's totally me just like the Day of the Dead page. You definitely deserve way more than one heart.
Response: OH! I almost cried when I read this! I tried so hard and really was pleased.. but it was your opinion that counted most! :-)

Hey there! I sent you an invite to a group. It's a little slow but I think it could be fun. Maybe we could do some private swaps in the group for some fun scrapbooking. Take a look and see what you think!
