I'm a 35 year old working wife and mother of two great kiddos. We moved from southern California to middle Tennessee 4 years ago. Never thought I would ever move from CA yet here I am.
I don't really think of myself as crafty, although I keep trying to be.
I have been scrapbooking for 11 years and card making for the past 9 years. I mainly stick to scrapping for my kids and family so all of my supplies focus around that.
I made my very first chipboard album for Jaemac - here on Swap-Bot. It was exciting and a fun experience. Since then I have made several more albums. I've also made a few banners, cards, home decor and other things. I love to create fun little projects like this for people - message me if you're interested!
I used to sew but haven't done it in years. My MIL gave me one of her old sewing machine. Over the past few years I have done a little here and there. I've been making lots of baby stuff for friends and family members.
I'm in the process of learning how to knit. So far so good. I mostly knit kitchen wash cloths.
I like tea pots/cups and antique dishes. I started hosting a tea party once year for my birthday. My favorite tea is Lemon Ginger herbal tea. I enjoy most herbal and some green tea. I don't care for black tea. I have been collecting tea cups, tea pot and dishes ever since. I'm always on the look out for more.
Likes: I like mists, stars, ribbon, bling, letters, thickers, journaling cards/tags, note cards, stationary, glue dots, chipboard/cardboard, wood veneer shapes, paints & brushes and paper. I'm really into to bright primary colors right now. Red, blue, green, orange, yellow, etc... I've been working on several projects and I could really use plan magnets of every shape and size. Thanks!
I like making my own cards so blank cards (any size). Not picky at all on the color. Actually colored ones would be cool.
I'm always on the look out to try new things. One new things that I'm trying is stamping. I prefer words not really images. I don't use stamps for scrapbooking more for card making. For example: get well soon, thank you, happy birthday, etc...
Flat stickers, I have a ton and don't really need any more at this time. Flowers and buttons, I have a few jars full (of each) and although I like them I don't really need anymore at the moment.
Not too crazy about Disney stuff.
Gold and things gold color. I'm more of a silver person.
Used items. I don't mind items that are new and partly missing. But, I don't like things that have actually been used.
Trinity June: She is 11 (April) years old and is an all around kinda girl. Nail polish and anything glittery. She likes to read, so books are fantastic. Also, she has a few pen pals so pens and stationary is great! She is also interested in new pen pals.
Luke Ian: My little man is 9 (May) and loves anything and is super easy to please. Stickers, books, legos...
I like dark chocolate way more than milk chocolate. I like it even more with something else mixed in like nut, caramel, coconut, etc... I enjoy flavored hot tea (lemon ginger herbal tea is my fav, I dislike black tea), hot chocolate, coffee, popcorn (regular or flavored) and sour candy.
Dislikes: Gum, hard candy, mints, hot/spicy foods and vanilla candles. I don't wear any type of facial cosmetics or perfumes. If you are a smoker please make sure the swap doesn't smell like smoke. It bothers my allergies. Thanks!!
In an effort to recycle and be conscientious of the environment I'm starting to reuse my envies. Because of that some of my packages are not the most beautiful on the outside. If you prefer new packaging, please let me know. Obviously, I will never reuse a package that is in pieces or smells of smoke, but I do try to make good use of used packaging that comes my way.
I'm a good about doing whatever I sign-up to do. So, if for some reason you don't receive my swap PLEASE let me know ASAP.
