About Me

I'm a writer, I live way up North and I love crafting. Currently taking a knitting class with my mom ;-)

My favorite crafts are: jewelry making, papercrafting including but not limited to scrapbooking, and folded paper crafts, crochet and I'm learning to knit, I teach a lot of kids crafts, and I like to journal.

Little Things I like...

Likes: * Washi tape, fun types * Nice or fun pens * Colored lip glosses * Flavored lip balms * Flavored Teas - any! * Post-its * Embossing powder

Dislike: - Candy or food items, I'm diabetic and celiac, I can't eat it

Favorite Colors

I am a person of matched colors, I like black, gray and white together, but don't really like those colors by themselves. Really into patterns and cool combos.


  • Green
  • Browns
  • Purples
  • Reds and rusts


  • Blue
  • Vintage colors

About Fabric and Quilt Swaps

I'm new to quilting this year and I am in learning and having fun mode. I am interested in swaps that will help in both of those cases ;) I want to learn about fabrics and see as much as I can see. I'm signed up for some online classes and my mother has been an avid quilter most of my life - it's great to have this type of re-enforcement!

While I'm new to quilting, I'm not new to sewing. I made all of my bridesmaid dresses - 7! - for my wedding. My first sewing class was when I was 14 and I made hospital curtains as a job in the summers during high school and college.

I think my new found interest in quilting is because of the machine quilting ability there is today - I dislike hand sewing and it put me off in years past.

Postcards I Like

I love postcards of:

  • Places
  • Sunsets
  • Interesting Buildings
  • Maps
  • Artwork

My Family

I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful and smart daughters. One is already out of the house and graduated from college. We miss her at home, but are very proud of her. Our youngest child was a surprise blessing and she is only in 5th grade ;)

Do Not Send

Any type of Christian message, I have my faith and I don't need your religion.

Any type of chain mail crap!

Favorite Books

As a writer - who actually gets paid to write - I love reading.

My favorite books are thriller or romance, or both if I can get it. I read Koontz, King, Roberts, among the many other authors I love.

slat333 rated for send me a... Bookmark! on Jul 19, 2014
Comment: Awesome book marks! Thanks so much! I am not quite sure why I never thought of using a card as a bookmark, especially considering my obsession with vintage playing cards. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Hi, I was wondering if you'd been contacted by @jesslynne about the swap she owes you? She claims that she is making up the swaps and that some people have refused resends. Is that true?

Elanah on Oct 28, 2013:

Thank you so much for the angel! I'm definitely looking forward to making some progress on my Halloween quilt, now! =) I really appreciate it!
