About Me

I am a Christian originally from New England, but have lived in the Pacific Northwest since 1986. I am married to a music teacher so music is a big part of our lives. I love to read the bible and theological books.
I started scrapbooking and art projects in August 2011 and I'm hooked. I spend all of my spare time and have accumulated some great products! I am most excited to do a tag swap and feel that I've experimented with enough great techniques to keep up... I am quickly becoming hooked on ATC's too.

I take swapping very seriously, I don't take it lightly, and usually have my ATC or other package ready to ship the day after getting my assigned partner, sometimes before, depending on the swap. So PLEASE contact me if you do not receive your item!! Also, please rate in a timely manner, this way I know that you have received your swap items. I rate within 24 hours of receiving my swap.

Favorite Crafts

Mail Art and ATCs are my two favorite crafts. I am also making more cards lately and that is super fun!

I love everything STEAMPUNK and VINTAGE. These are my favorite genres but I do like ALL art!!

Favorite Music

Jazz, 40's swing, Classic Rock, gospel and Christian contemporary

Stuff I like

I like music, colorful bandana style art, and of course my favorite cartoon character is Woodstock. He is the coolest sidekick ever, of course hanging out with the very cool Snoopy. I try to put Woodstock on everything I make, even if he's hidden in a corner.
I love birds!! I have chickens and lots of bird feeders. I love trees, nature, butterflies, and flowers. I like Charms


metal &/or shiny bling or glitter embellishments

white cardstock

spray inks

sheer ribbon, twine, lace


Tim Holtz items

Anything green, green, green, green, I love Yellow, brown, did I say green? earthtones, purples and blues together Lace, torn paper, distressed items

Anything that I can use to decorate an envelope such as flower stickers, nice quality cut-outs of vintage people, flowers, anything nature.

I love trees, nature, flowers (daisies and sunflowers are the best!), butterflies, but especially trees... . I also love chocolate, and when I say I love chocolate, I mean that for our birthdays we use 3 cans of frosting on our cake. On the other side of the coin, I like studying about health and nutrition!

Favorite Television

I don't really watch a lot of TV, but do like The Office, and Mythbusters, Red Green and Shaun the Sheep. I love documentaries, I am an info junkie. Lark Rise to Candleford is the best BBC series I've ever seen!!!

Dislikes/Don't needs

Raw onions, mexican food When people say irregardless I'm not a huge sticker fan unless they are flowers or butterflies . Goth, Vampires, Nude art, Witches, Halloween, Pagan things. Though a Christian Please don't send crucifix or catholic items

A lot of Red, a little is ok, PInk, Hello Kitty, Cutesy, Disney

I don't need any paper scraps, or ATC backgrounds, if you send them with your swap, I will be happy to pass them on though. I don't need paper pictures, magazine cut-outs and such unless I can use them to decorate an envie with it.

Favorite Movies

Waiting for Guffman, Back to the Future, Original Star Wars, Fever Pitch, Food Matters, Forks over Knives

Best Sayings ever

Only one life 'twill soon be past Only what's done for Christ will last.

Life is an adventure and I'm just along for the ride.

Light a Candle, don't curse the darkness

Comment: Wow - that was one of the most exciting swap packages I have ever gotten! Thank you a gazillion! I love the cards (and how creative to use leather and wood veneer - I think the wood veneer one is my favorite.) But not just did I get 3 (!!!) ATCs, I also got a sheet of different fused glass goodies and nuggets, and this great vintage turtle ring that is now featured prominently in my collection. Anyway, that made my week!! !
Response: So happy you enjoyed that package, I had so much fun putting it together. When I saw that you liked glass, I had to share some as I love fused glass and use it a lot on my art projects. Thanks for swapping and rating!! xo ♥♥♥
