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.**

Crafts & Jewelry

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:

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

Favorite food: Mexican (also like to try Mediterranean)

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 green

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

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!
Comment: Thanks so much!
