About Me

I joined Swap-Bot for the joy of crafting for others. I put a lot of thought and effort into my swaps with the hope it brings you the same joy I get from putting crafty things together for you. I read your profile and take notes in a journal so I can keep track of things to send you that are specifically related to your likes. I love to send happy mail that lifts your spirits and brightens your day.

I'm a crafter, mom of adult identical twin daughters and I've been married a very long time. I have a little rescue dog, my husband has a little dog and we have 2 grandoggers. So if you're allergic to pets, we might not be a good match. We live in a non-smoking home, so, yay for that!

LIKES:

-I loved visiting England! I now am obsessed with Big Ben and all of England. One day I hope to go back and stay in Bath.

-Colors: I love them all, pink, purple, mermaid blues and greens, teal, red, pastels, just about anything goes, really.

-I like the beach/ocean, flora and fauna, butterflies, birds, dogs, animals, elephants, mermaids, Julie Nutting paper dolls, Art Impressions stamps, Stamping Bella, the mild side of steampunk, girly, eclectic and quirky stuff.

-I'm a big fan of Julie Nutting paper dolls by Prima and have quite a large collection of the stamps and dies. I was lucky enough to take a couple of in-person classes with Julie Nutting!

-I collect old sewing buttons, hankies, books, and craft supplies, of course.

-I'm nerdy and eclectic, and I like for things to bring me happiness and joy.

DISLIKES:

-I don't care to receive anything edible. I don't like coffee, not even the smell of it (I love my tea, though). I'm not big on perfumey things like scented candles, bath bombs or other items with strong odors.

-I don't really care for the latest unicorn craze, things on the violent side of creepy, and anything having to do with horoscopes, ouija boards or tarot cards.

Favorite Crafts

I am currently obsessed with learning about mixed media, watercoloring and card-making.

I'm learning how to use the Gelli Plate and Gel Press for monoprinting.

I can crochet, but I rarely do.

As with other crafters, I have tons of supplies. I also have die cutters, dies, embossing folders, and lots of cling and rubber stamps. Stickers you say? I have so, so many.

My daughters and I were lucky enough to take an in-person class from Tim Holtz (eep!); we love all of his stuff and his style.

CHALLENGES I HAVE ENJOYED:

-Tim Holtz's On-line Creative Chemistry 101/102/103 classes

-Yellow Daisy Art's Index Card A Day (ICAD), June 1-July 31, 61 days of arting.

-I am always swapping with someone via Instagram, here or Facebook, so it's on-going.

Favorite Music

I enjoy almost any form of music; rock and roll is my favorite, but I love country and gospel as well. Man, I do love a good quartet. I don't care for rap or techno. I have an odd attraction to Hawaiian music. The music isn't odd, but my attraction to it surprises me.

Favorite Television

I'm a Netflix junkie. I like to craft with it, playing and binge watching programs such as Charmed, Supernatural, Grimm, Once Upon A Time, The Murdoch Mysteries, Haven, Flash, Midsomer Murders, Republic of Doyle, The Detectorists, and just about anything British or Jane Austen. I don't care for blood and gore.

Favorite Movies

I love musicals! Because my name is Dorothy, one of my favorite movies is The Wizard of Oz. I was lucky enough to meet several of the Munchkins and other Oz celebrities. In 2008, my husband and I went to Los Angeles and watched as the Munchkins were awarded their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Movies I'll watch again and again: How To Train Your Dragon, Beauty and The Beast (latest one), Galaxy Quest, Tinkerbell (animated), Overboard, all of Harry Potter (I am a Ravenclaw), Grease, Xanadu. There's more, but I just can't think of them.

Favorite Books

Besides Harry Potter, one of my favorites is The Mitford series by Jan Karon. I also am in the middle of reading The Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney (surprising because I don't care for creepy). My favorite type of books are those with a hint of the magical and fantastical.

Things I've Made

Please be patient, this will be updated with photos or clickable links as soon as I can figure it out.

Comment: Thank you soo much! I love the bookmark that you made. It's gorgeous. I really love every thing. You are too kind. The bookmark is way to nice to put in a book yet though. I have a ribbon board with favorites. It must go there so I can look at it. I see absolutely no flaws! It is just the way it's supposed to be! I love the little envelope too! More then a smile, I'm still grinning!
Response: Gosh, I'm so tickled that you like it so much! I knew there was someone out there I was supposed to make it for, and I'm glad it was you. Thank you for the heart, day made.

Comment: LOVE LOVE LOVE you really went above and beyond on this one!! The details on the Dex are so cute and really make the card. I have never stitched on paper before but it looks great! I also thought the button card was bought that way. It looks so cute. And wow! deli paper!! who knew!? LOL Definitely hope to swap with you again I forgot to mention how much I LOVE all of the gaming papers you sent as well. I don't have anything like that in my stash. Thank you for personalizing my package. You truly made my week!
Response: I'm so glad you like everything, you've made my day! I must confess, the paper was pre-sewn, so I'm just as impressed with it as you are. Thank you for taking the time to let me know how much you like your Dex card, I really appreciate it!

Comment: WoW.What an incredible work of art. Everything about the fantastic card you created for me is perfection! I thank you so much for such a wonderful gift. I also thank you for the beautiful butterflies. Is it wrong of me to keep them all to myself? Eh, probably but I’m gonna keep them anyway!❤️
Response: I made everything just for you, so it makes me very happy you want to keep them all to yourself. It's a guilt-free gift, enjoy it! :)

Response: You are so welcome! I tend to go a little overboard because I have so much to share, so please don't feel you didn't do your partner justice. My daughters spoil me with craft supplies, and I like to pass it on. Have fun and enjoy your new supplies!

Thank you for the awesome swap you sent to me!

Thank you for the absolutely darling twinchies you sent my way. In such a cute handmade card, no less. My mum's a card maker and I am always so impressed by people's ability to do so, I just have never been able to get into it.
