About Me


I give from the heart, not for a heart..........though I sure love to get them!!! :) ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ By Picxie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

UPDATE - My mother was in a public bus accident. She suffered several fractured ribs, broken finger and minor cuts and bruises. She is much better and is moving around slowly. I have been with her the first week til she was able to get around and am now able to be home to take care of my family and pets. I am the closest family member who lives 1 hour away from her, so I am the one who drives there 3 times a day to walk her 3 active dogs. ( I swear I must of walked over 100 miles and have not shed a pound!)
The crazy part of all of this is that she did not receive medical help on the day of the accident! I was not aware of what happened until the day after when I took her to the ER. Imagine all the paper work, police report and hiring an attorney. (Plus me almost having a heart attack, because of all of this) Today is my first day that I get to stay home, my brother will stay the long weekend with my mother. sigh
I hope to have the weekend to myself, after catching up on laundry, ect.... :( I am going to try and send out as many packages as possible Tuesday due to the holiday.
I am so sorry to all my partners but promise not to disappoint you. THANK YOU!

Hi, my real name is Suzie. I'm from the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. I have 5 beautiful babies, 3 boys and 2 girls. Ages 24,23,22,18, and 9! Those numbers are going to change starting this September! Yes! Their all still babies to me! I have 4 dogs, 1 cat, 1 bunnies, 1 ferret, and 3 birds! (Bunny, ferret, and birds are caged, Dogs and cat do not have access to all of our house, and am a fanatic about pet hair! If there were any concerns.) Hubby, he was my h.s sweetheart. We've been together ever since.
I'm VERY eclectic, in ALL areas! Did I mention I'm also computer challenged? Yep, have to get one of my kids to show me how to put pictures up, have no clue!

Favorite Music


An eclectic area, I like the 80s, classic rock, lite rock, 50s, italo, Hot Mix 5, and even my kids music, pop, rap, hip hop.....I love mixes!

Favorite Books


I like easy craft books with A LOT of pictures. As for reading (turning red) I like romance novels!

Favorite Movies


I like all types of movies, another eclectic area. Horror, comedy, Disney, make me cry movies, but lately.....SAW! 1,2,3,4,and waiting for 5 and 6! I just saw Coraline and loved the movie! Okay, now I just saw Phantom of The Opera loved it!!! ( I am not into musicals, but this was the exception!)

My Fave YouTube Video "Free Hugs" "Ninja Cat"

Favorite Crafts


I love ALL crafts! Right now my passion is dotee dolls! I want to collect them from all around the world! I'm a beginner crafter, I can't knit or crochet, would like to learn in the future. I cant sew, just the most basic stitch. I would love to scrapbook, just dont know where to start, so overwhelming! Atc and decos are another craft I would like to try. Whimsy jars, Inchies, matchboxes, and altoids are something I could do, and would like to try. Lol! This site is overwhelming! Never even knew of some of the crafts here! Btw, I know I'm a newbie, but I would never send something I wouldn't like to receive myself. ...Pssst... instead of writing a note on a card (swap and who its from), when sent with swap package. Would love if you wrote all that information on a postcard where your from, and send it in the swap package! (Does not have to be mailed) test

UPDATE: I just acquired a lovely vintage Lundby dollhouse! The problem is that its empty! Would LOVE anything handmade, used, old or new to put into it! ANYTHING!

A Little Bit More About Me.....

test That cute cupcake girl picture was made especially for me by my daughter! Isn't she simply adorable?

After reading my profile, many of you might think of me as a cutesy, pink, old lady with bows in my hair! :P LoL!

First, I really don't wear that much pink...only accessories like a pink scarf, socks, ect... Second, there's not one bit of pink decor in my house.

My style of clothing is casual, anywhere from jeans to sweats. If I have to dress up, I always have my little black dresses. :) Color staple, I always wear black with another color...white, beige, gray (mainly neutrals) Jewelry is only platinum, white gold or silver and occasionally gem stones. One exception is chunky bracelets! Love them, the more charms/beads, noise, chunkiness...the better! :)

My home was totally renovated 6 years ago from a 3 bedroom ranch to a 2 story 6 bedroom. No carpet, just hardwood floors. Tried to go for the comfortable modern zen look. Think black, white and neutrals throughout home with silver fixtures and appliances. Shoji screens. Plants and more plants, even bamboo! Nice picture? Think family of sevens clutter added to that and lots of it! :P ...So much for the zen look! :(

Sooo...my fave color (pink) and all its cuteness is my girly side and is only shown through my crafts and this profile. :P :)
