I like swapbot because I like to create little works of art. Sometimes it makes me sad to let them go but its all in the doing for me.

I have recently received some threes because I got backed up over thanksgiving. I told everyone ahead of time that I would be late and I sent them all within 2 weeks.

Also, I love to give and get extras. I think its just as fun picking out what extras I can give to a person as it is getting them from others.

We have a mud room at our house that I have turned into my craft room. I proudly display all my fellow swappers beautiful workπŸ˜ƒ


My husband and I have started practicing Buddhism. Its been an amazing experience as we learn the wisdom and meditation techniques of Buddhism. We even just recently visited a Buddhist monastery for an introductory retreat. I hope continuing to practice this religion will bring me much peace in my life as so much of us need. If anyone would like to talk to me about Buddhism or have questions about it, I would love to talk to any of you. And of course, any Buddha related item will be graciously appreciated.

Favorite Crafts

I feel like I'm someday going to try it all. I go through phases with my crafting. Right now on swapbot I am focusing on atcs and especially inchies.

I have made several furniture pieces by cutting square tiles of paper and attaching them to a table and then coating it with counter top resin. I have gone even further by adding marbles, metalic string, and other embellishments to my furniture.

The reason I am so into inchies right now is that I am tiling an entire hutch with them and then coating it with the counter top resin to make it smooth. It is turning out awesome and I hope to post pics soon. So if you have any extra inchies or want to make me some I would love to recieve them.

Wish List

I love extras! If you like sending them too, here are a few things Id love to receive:

  • ephemera

    • Favorite colors are red and brown, but I like them all

    • any kind of embellishment

  • interesting threads or strings

  • chipboard shapes

  • postage stamps to pass along

  • small silk flowers

  • brads

  • blank note cards and envelopes

  • pearls

  • stencils

  • metal charms

  • interesting ribbon

  • small clay embellishments

  • die cut shapes

  • personalized address labels

  • punches

  • book pages

  • decorative napkins

  • any good background or embellishment techniques

  • fun playing cards

PLEASE no Jesus propaganda. I am very open minded to all religions however I have enough Christianity opportunities just at my front door.

Favorite Themes

-san fransisco Giants -banjos -suns -celtic knots - music

Favorite Music

I have always loved 60"s folk music. Simon and Garfunkel are my favorite musicians. I also like Wilco and the Shins. I am always listening to ether Pandora or Rhapsody. I havnt really watched TV since I met my husband.

My New Blog

I just made myself a new blog. I've made several blogs in the past, but never kept them up. So now I have made on a free blogging site so that I dont have to pay yearly fees for something I might not use all of the time. This new blog is called "What I Made Today." I'm using it as a creative diary. Feel free to check it out if you'd like. The link is posted under my URLs.
