I have a new address as of 2015. I was able to purchase my own townhome. I have grown in my career at work. March 2018 will be my 20yrs with my company. Just thinking of the technology growth with cell phones & the internet in those 20yrs! WOW!

*** If you have not received my swap PLEASE contact me PRIOR to rating & I will resend if necessary. Communication is KEY to life & around here on swap-bot!***

I've downsized my group affiliations, some due to dead groups, some due to not relevant, but mostly I want to focus my attention to a limited number of subjects nowadays.

I recycle packaging & use A LOT of tape to secure the package! I use stamps.com for my postage.

About Me

*I am VERY prompt on getting swaps out- if I have a delay for some reason, I will msg you. As soon as I sign up for a swap, I start thinking & creating the item for it.

*** PLEASE DO NOT SEND CHOCOLATE OR ANYTHING THAT WILL MELT IN HEAT. I live in Texas & it is HOT hot here from April -Oct.**

I have 2 cats -Delilah & Sophie. 1 BF - Jon.

Crafts & Jewelry

-fave craft website: Splitcoast Stampers

I go thru craft cycles. I have come to a point in my life that I craft/create for myself & at my own pace. I do not like to take orders or requests because I do not care for the pressure.

I purchased a new Viking sewing machine earlier this year. I enjoy sewing much more than I did on my Brother machine. I sew for myself, I do not take requests/orders.

I have a Silhouette Cameo (electronic die cutting system). I have limited patience with it. I usually cut vinyl and paper, but learning about HTV.

-Love to make jewelry, but hands are getting old/tired when working with the tools. Burnt out on jewlery swaps.

-I have rubber stamps- mostly for mixed media projects. I do NOT make cards anymore. I do use other products as well. Always looking for new phrases/words stamps.

Craft stuff: I love pretty much any crafty!

Themes/styles I love: bright colors, unique color combinations, HAPPINESS, flowers, animals.

Favorite Jewelry: silver, copper, antiqued metals, just not anything gold

-necklaces (16"-17”) -bracelets (7”) -rings size 6 1/2 or 7) -pierced ears

What I like:

  • Geckos (with round toes only!!-like my profile pic)

  • Kitties

*anything recycled/reused or up-cycled or re-purposed

I collect the all different sizes of the letter A for my "A" wall.

  • Cowboy Christmas items (Santas or Snowmen in cowboy garb!)

Favorite food: Mexican (also like to try Mediterranean)

** Keurig coffee cups or small trial size coffees: NOTHING DARK ROAST or FRENCH ROAST or BOLD please --I'm still kinda a woosey coffee drinker.. LOOKING FOR some Tim Horton's original coffee (Canadians or NYstate peeps know what this is)**

Favorite books: The Secret, (but I prefer audiobooks because I don’t have time to sit & read.)

Favorite scent: fruity (dislike: vanilla, cinnamon, musk, cigarette smoke)

Favorite color: Purple and turquoise

Favorite number: 8

Favorite season: summer

Favorite holiday: Valentines

Favorite time of day: anytime a clock says 8:19 (that’s my birthday & it always makes me smile when I see it!)

**Love country music, but listen to everything but rap

anything with my name on it


-cutting out little things (around stamped images,etc)


-I DO NOT like child crafts, I DO NOT like when people try beyond their abilities,

-Reading a swap that is just one jumbled paragraph. I avoid those-not appealing to the eye-or mind.

-Asian prints/designs

-inchies...I just don't 'get' them.

-FLIP FLOPS!!! I HATE things between my toes!

-vanilla or cherry scented anything

-Hello Kitty or Kawaii

-musk or patcholi scents or cinnamon anything.

-liars, fakes, drama queens

-snow! That's why I moved to the south!

-dark chocolate (actually I'm not really a chocolate fan, SKITTLES are my weakness!)

•shiny gold (antique brass is ok)

•cooking – I only cook to eat to survive! Wish I had a full time personal chef!

•vampires, skulls

•dark, drab or gothy-themed things. Please No Wicca, witchcraft, Ouija or 'fortune telling' items.

•dollar store/bin knickknacks unless it really suits me (geckos)


•cheap plush toys ...unless it is a gecko (items I collect).

-cigarette smoke, i'm allergic! If you're a smoker, please try to avoid the odor on things you send me

Favorite Television

*** FAVE TV Big Brother, American Pickers, Storage Wars, Survivor, Intervention, Hell's Kitchen, Deadliest Catch (crab legs are worth every penny for what those guys have to go thru!), lots of TLC & Discovery channel shows. Cougartown, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, & old fave Desperate Housewives, House MD, and (Old, old faves, Seinfeld, Friends, Cheers, Will & Grace, Sex & the City, Family Guy, The Office) ***

I am on facebook, instagram and twitter @leecytx

I don't like doing this...but.

I don't participate in "tags" or "trains" -- its hard enough for me keeping track of my swaps that are on my dashboard, let alone trying to remember where the tags or train i participated in... maybe one day.

I dislike short profiles, 1 jumbled paragraph for a swap, poor grammar, and People who don't communicate. Contact me if you haven't received my swap -don't just write nasty stuff which tells me nothing of why you are upset.

PeggyO rated for ATC - Thanksgiving on Nov 19, 2013
Comment: Alyce---I love the pumkins--I think they are die cuts or Cricut cut outs,But i want to learn how to add pen/pen techniques that give them depth and realiism .This ATC gets such depth and realism. I/d love to know how you do it! This ATC certainly gets a place in my VERY BEST ATCs!
Response: They are punch art. I use to hang out w/ Stampin Up people and fell in love with punch art. If you are on Splitcoast stampers, go to the gallery & search punch art. Some links will take you to blogs for directions & techniques. Thanks for the heart and kind words!
