About Me

I joined Swap-Bot for the joy of crafting and making art for others. It's rare I join more than one swap at a time. I put a lot of thought and effort into my swaps with the hope it brings you the same joy I get from putting everything 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 am a crafter/artist, mother of adult identical twin daughters, and I have 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!


-Colors: I love them all, blues, greens, teal, pink, purple, red, yellow, pastels, earth tones, brights, just about anything goes, really.

-I like the beach/ocean, flowers, butterflies, birds, dogs, animals, elephants, mermaids, Julie Nutting paper dolls, Art Impressions stamps, Stamping Bella, the mild side of steampunk, vintage, girly, eclectic, and quirky stuff. I love mixed media, hand-sewn or quilted items, and hand-drawn art as well.

-I'm a big fan of Tim Holtz, Julie Nutting, and Dyan Reavely, and I'm very tickled to have taken in-person classes with them all at my favorite scrapbook store! I also took a lettering class from Amy Tan, but I didn't practice so I still struggle with that.

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

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

-I loved visiting England! It was a trip of a lifetime given to me by my daughters. It was the first time they flew, so that added even more "excitement." I am now obsessed with Big Ben and all of England. One day I hope to go back and stay in Bath.


-I don't care to receive anything edible. I don't like coffee, not even the smell of it (I love my Irish 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 really into making unique backgrounds for my die cutting and card-making. I also dabble in Bible journaling and have a lot to learn.

Small art is where it's at for me. I like to make and trade ATCs, ATCoins, Index cards, Memory Dex cards, twinchies, inchies and whatever else I can make in miniature.

I am learning how to use the Gelli Plate. 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 plenty.


-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.

lmacdavis93 rated for ACT: Double Coins on Oct 28, 2018
Comment: Dear Dorothy, If I could give you a 10 rating I would! Your double coins are so cute. Love the sparkly purple backgrounds and the little witches are wonderful - you have colored them perfectly. They really are brilliant. And I am overwhelmed by all the goodies you sent me! So much fun stuff. Love the vintage list - I have a bunch of vintage papers and ledgers and I just love them. And like you I will buy one not knowing exactly what I might do with it but it's just fun to have. I've never seen anything like the fine art squares either, and I can't believe all the die cuts you made me! They are all so great, but I really love the one that looks like trees - it's amazing! Thanks for a wonderful swap and for you lovely letter that you enclosed as well. Hope we are partners again sometime soon!
Response: Oh, my goodness! Thank you for the wonderful things you said and for giving me a heart. "Brilliant," wow, no one has ever said that about my art. And saying you hope we partner up again really made my day, thanks so much!

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.

Thank you so so much for the junk journal and pretty card. I am so excited to start using it for memories. I took the box to work so Tina and I could open it together. I didn't know they were themed for each of us but I let Tina choose and she picked the sewing one after all. But both are lovely. Glad you got your box too. Thank you again so much.

iamdawt on Dec 14, 2018:

DO NOT SWAP WITH @BabyBee78 !! She ignores emails, doesn't send swaps, only takes. I have no patience for people who suck the fun out of swapping.

Welcome to Merry Memorydex and Rolo Swaps USA!! I just uploaded two new swaps for October and November.

Candyn29 on May 9, 2018:

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.
