Favorite Crafts

I am a 40 something small town country gal living in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. I am a mother to 1 wonderful adult daughter ( married).

My husband of 31 yrs and I reside with our 5 fur babies.~ A pitbull and 4 cats

I am a collector of all things old and vintage and love to go "junk hunting". Thrift stores and flea markets are some of my favorite places to shop.

I love Old vintage things, lace and pearls or anything shabby chic.

I enjoy jewelry of any kind. I have multiple pierced ears. Bracelet size 7 1/2- 8 inch and ring size 7. I love the handmade stuff!

I don't mind partially used craft supplies (like left over stickers and bits 'n' pieces) all crafters always have "extra leftovers" from projects that we don't throw away because we say "I can use it later". I would love any crafty assortments, stickers, vintage themed anything, butterfly, or pet theme you would like to share. I do lots of paper crafts with a wide variety of themes so pretty much anything goes for me.

I love animals and have rescued many. I can never turn an animal away. They need love an affections just as much a people do. I enjoy anything cat themed.

Favorite Movies are to many to list but the types I like are comedy, romance, thrill/horror, mystery suspense, action adventure.

I watch A LOT of TV! Any suggestions for shows or movies are appreciated. I stream Netflix & Hulu along with regular tv Network channels.

DIY channel, HGTV, Investigation shows, I enjoy shows like The Handmaids Tale, Harlots, Siren, Stranger Things, ,Chicago Fire, Chicago Md, Chicago PD, New Amsterdam, The Good Doctor, & psychological thrillers.

I have been a crafter for most of my lifetime. I dabble in just about everything except needlepoint. I enjoy all types of paper crafts like making pocket Letters, Flipbooks, ATC, Card/tag making, making creative stationary and scrapbooking.

I love to write letters so snail mail is one of my hobbies. I am always looking for new pen friends in the US. If we are partnered for a swap even if it's not a letter swap and you enjoy writing letters and have common interest with me just write me a letter and include it in with the swap and tell me that you are looking for a pen pal. I always reply back.

When it comes to theme choices for swaps I'm easy to please. I like most everything (see a few dislikes) everything from kawaii to horror. I am not easily offended and I love humor.

I enjoy all the seasonal holidays and I do celebrate Christmas. I am a Christian so religious items gladly accepted.

Wishlist / Likes *unused US postage stamps any denomination to use for swap postage

*stationary paper or letter sets. I prefer lined but unlined and handmade is fine too.

  • Anything you take the time to make yourself always makes me happy. I enjoy handmade over store bought

*I like Kawaii *Cat/ Dogs themed (any animals really) *Vintage any thing as long as it is clean and usable

*Precious Moments~ anything

*Vintage advertising cards, stickers ect *Beach themed~ sea shells, nautical, anchors, Mermaids

*Card stock paper/ pretty scrapbooking paper *Lace, ric rac, Trims of all kinds *Photography relate anything ~Black and white vintage photos *Any kind of embellishments (brads,stones pearls, flat backs, junk jewelry) *Washi tape *I love butterflies *Jewelry *Rubber or clear stamps/ inks * stationary, pens, pencils, notepads, post it ,ect *Charms *flat backs * flat stickers *rub ons * flavored teas fruity/ spicy preferred (no mint) *Apple Cider *Hot chocolate *drink mix to add to bottled water * ephemera * ATCs of any kind or theme * dessert, crockpot/instant pot recipes * I do a wide variety of crafts so any bits and pieces are welcomed. * Magazine clippings that can be used for art collage *hand lettered words or phrases to use in projects *I love bright colors and it's hard to choose a favorite but if I had to choose it would be red.

I like abstract/ cartoonish, doodles/ retro as well as "real" when it comes to art work for postcards or ATC.

Decorated envelopes really brighten my day! I (and also my mail carrier) love mail art that arrive in my mailbox.

I am easy to please and not picky at all but just a few things that I don't like and would prefer not to receive Are: Marvel/ DC comic related, Star Wars, Anime, Pokemon type stuff. *role playing items (Dungeons & Dragons, MTG) * Primary (teacher/school type award) stickers.

I am an early sender. I weigh my swaps to calculate postage but should you ever get anything with postage due please let me know so I can make it up to you!

You should receive your swap well before the deadline date. If you haven't got it by the deadline date please message me so that I can try to track it down or resend. I would never flake on a swap and communication is important. If you are my partner I will always notify you if I might fall behind schedule for any reason and please feel free to message me at any time.

I don't always check my email so if you need to get in touch with me please send your message via swapbot message.

Thank you so much for granting my wish for a wish granted group May wish list. This is a beautiful mask and I will definitely get use out of it and thank you also for the unused postcards! The stay-at-home order has been lifted where I live, but everyone's still wearing the masks. I believe you are right in that we will be wearing these for quite a while longer.
