About me and some of my faves





I put a lot of effort in what I make, I only do a small amount of items at a time, ( I am a slow crafter due to habit and health) so you will only get my best work! If you have a problem with what I have done or something goes missing PLEASE message me !

I always rate! I usually only check my mail twice week. I haven't forgotten, I promise!

I KNOW this is long, but I like long profiles so I get a good idea of my partner. If it's too long for you I apologize. My profile is not just about swaps, but to give you an idea of me as a person.

I would LOVE some die cuts in pale pink, pastel blue, soft green and/ or black from "A child's year" cricut cartridge. If you would like to swap please let me know!

If you are going to be late on a swap PLEASE message me.

I can be a contradiction, although I am not into holidays, I may sign up for a swap because I love the theme, color etc. Victorian hearts, or a Halloween swap that is a black piece of jewelry or something. Don't worry I won't rate down if you send something! Any questions please ask. Sometimes you just feel like making something different.

Shipping, Allergies, Smells

I recycle packing material of all kinds. So your package and/or wrapping on the OUTSIDE might look a little rough.

I am a non smoker, so if you smoke, please air out or Febreeze, your items. Smoke smell gives me a headache (So will too much febreeze). Thank you SO much!

NO Thanks!


  • I have a VERY strong belief in Almighty God. However please no religious or occult items of any kind. No crosses, rosaries, goddess figures, buddha, pentagrams, spells, magic, astrology, or signs, divination, ghosts, demons, demonology, etc. I don't believe in fate, past lives, or that everything happens for a reason. Nor do I believe it's "God's" will when bad things happen. Pease nothing political either.

  • I believe humans were created with free will. I will NEVER be rude or disrespectful to you for what you believe. It would go against what I believe. Just because we don't share the same opinions, or beliefs doesn't mean I don't like or respect you! It's not my place to judge others. (I hope you will feel the same towards me.)

PLEASE do not use the word midget in anything you send me. I have a beautiful, amazing son with dwarfism, and it's very hurtful and insulting. Thanks!

👇👇PLEASE don't waste your time or money 👇👇

  • I am a SEASONAL over Holiday person. Leaves over witches, snowmen over Santa etc.

  • Floral or non-food type scents.

  • Magazine clippings. I have TONS of magazines, these would be wasted on me. So would bits of paper, unless it's old.

  • Unwrapped or green tea.(I know it's good for me I can't help it.) Also PLEASE check the expiration dates on your teabags. I recently received one that was 4 years old and the wrapper was dirty. It must have been passed around quite a bit. Don't waste your postage money, and I make enough garbage..

  • Extreme gore, blood, guts and violence, slasher films.

  • I don't care much for peach, rust (unless in an autumn theme) burgundy or hunter green, and most "mauves".

  • Not into Southwest type images or colors. Howling coyotes, Kokopellis, cactus, etc etc.

  • Sticker no thank you's - Reward type, "shiny " holograph, photo realistic, lenticular, or childish stickers from a pad, foam etc.

  • I don't care for "country" ~IE: bears in crochet hats, ducks, geese, pine hearts etc. or too cutesy. Classic country with it's oil lamps, stoneware bowls, old wooden handle utensils, and gingham is another matter. I would love to have a little cottage in the woods.

  • Hummels and Precious Moments are not for me.

  • Liars

  • Deliberate Flakers. Thieves really.

  • People who make fun of others, are mean to children, the elderly or cruel to people or animals.

  • DRAMA. I HATE drama!! I don't need or want the stress.

THANKS SO MUCH ( especially if you made it this far!)

                            *THE END*
