About Me

I have loved crafts since I was very young. Being creative is as close as I can come to flying. It's a release, a joy, and I love to give to others. So SwapBot has been a Jewel.

I am 97% introvert, a deep thinker. I love animals and can't imagine my life without them. I also can't imagine life without my four beautiful children and husband.

Looking forward to trading with you! I put a lot of thought into my projects, as well as a lot of time.

For the record, I do have two ones on my profile, but I am not a flake, and I've never not sent to any partner. However, three yrs ago I had two separate ppl say they never got them, and when I offered to resend, I did not get a response. After the second '1', I decided to leave Swap-Bot. But, alas, I'm back, hoping I can make some more projects that will make ppl happy. I love that, giving gifts, I always have. If for ANY reason you don't get my swap, PLEASE let me know so I can resend it to you BEFORE giving me a bad rating! I do the same for all my swap partners, and I won't give you a bad rating without giving you a chance to rectify it.

Favorite Crafts

Everything. But for the sake of lists which I write all the time and forget where I put them;

  • crochet / knitting
  • altered text / art
  • ATC's (Artist Trading Cards)
  • painting
  • drawing
  • sewing
  • photography

Favorite Books

autobiographies, true animal stories, inspirational, vintage gothic, true crime, Nicholas Sparks...

Favorite Music

Sting, Elijah Bosenbroek, Michael English, movie soundtracks, piano and other instrumental, Christian alternative...

Favorite Television

Cold Case Files, Forensic shows, Medical programs, Lifetime, Frasier, House, Wife Swap and Trading Spouses, Funniest Home Videos, Keeping Up Appearances, Bourne series, LOST, Little House on the Prairie, Intervention

Things I Really Like

  • Valentine Colors (red, purple, pink) - favorite shade of pink magenta but all shades are pretty
  • animals
  • Angels (not cutesie)
  • Babies
  • the Ocean
  • chocolate
  • coffee
  • roses and other flowers
  • thrift stores and unusual clothing
  • vintage - old photos and papers, etc
  • humor
  • gum
  • altered art - clothing, books, etc
  • victorian
  • Princess Diana (some say I look like her)
  • jewelry
  • mystery in art, what I read, etc; if it makes me think, if you make something that I have to look at for a while to see all the detail - I appreciate this. Not that it has to be intricate but a simple image atop pretty cardstock isn't exciting no matter how nice the picture...unless it's an amazing photo you took that doesn't need more than a frame and/or background
  • real, surreal, abstract, pretty, dark (meaning topics like death and suicide don't bother me if broached tastefully)
  • decoupage
  • glitter, ribbon, lace, paint, natural/synthetic fibers, rick rack, buttons, sequins, words and letters, monotype corsiva font and similiar
  • 80's music, 80's movies, 80's stars, etc
  • wrapping paper if pretty

Things I DON'T Like

  • Neon Colors (neon pink is ok as long as it's in the form of fabric

  • Wiccan/Pagan/Anti-Christ

  • 'Cutesie' things - generic kid type stickers; (like teddy bears with rosy cheeks, babies with button noses)

  • Disney or cartoons, sporty or preppy, heavy metal and rap

Comment: I waited patiently for my partner magentapink13 to complete the swap since she sent late and told me the card should be arriving any day. Well her card never came. I would rate her a zero if it was an option since it's almost a month since the swap deadline and I had to contact her about it first and the 2nd time with no reply from her. It is also sad and reflects badly on her part since she was the swap host. Magentapink13 is a flaker beware newbies!!!
