About Me

12/29/17- It’s been a great crafting year for me! My YouTube channel is up and running- my channel name is MotleyMixedMedia with Mary S. Come join the crafty fun! I’m on Shawn Petite’s Design Team, creating videos 1-2 x per month using her awesome stencils. I’m also going to be on Evaneys Stamp Designs Design Team starting in January 2018! I’ll be making cards with her cute stamps that will be on her blog.

9/12/16- I'm back! Finally got my new craft room functional and just signed up for a couple swaps! I am so glad to be crafting again!

2/14/2016- I'm taking a break from joining swaps for a few months because we are packing up to move into a new house! I may finally get a dedicated craft room instead of having to borrow my hubby's office. Yay! I'll still check in here and answer messages. I hope to be crafting with ya'll again soon! xoxo

7/10/2015- We had to put down Calle, our beloved shepard mix, today. :( In honor of her, please consider rescuing your next dog from a shelter.

5/11/15- We are back! It was a wonderful trip to Disney and Universal. :)

4/28/15*** Me and the fam are heading to Florida for a much needed vacation next week, so I won't be around for swaps until after May 12th!***

Favorite Crafts

I have started making hand made postcards! I love to receive handmade (well made!) postcards in swaps. I also love postcards with maps and cities/ countries on them, like touristy postcards. I like to receive them naked and with something about you on them.

I love alcohol ink art and embossing!

My favorite thing to make on SB is ATCs!

I paint with acrylics, do counted cross-stitch and make bookmarks, too.

I also love ink stamps, gelli printing, using perfect pearls, and embossing (heat and dry).

I also tend to a lovely veggie garden! My zone is 5. :) I love growing tomatoes and peppers, as well as cukes and lots of flowers. My boys love to help me out with weeding and picking the wonderful veggies. DH will soon be making me another raised bed because we are running out of room!

I have at least 15 house plants, including dracaenas,several jades, and a spider plant, to name a few.

Misc...

I LOVE owls!! I collect them, and I even have two owls tattooed on my back!

Favorite colors are turquoise, teal, pink, purple, orange and sage green.

My fave smells are almond, apple cinnamon and Dot perfume.

I like vintage items, hexagons, brads, realistic stickers, stencils, and peacocks.

I love, love, love to cook and have a mega collection of recipes.

Things I don't like:

Food: liver, white chocolate, sweet tarts

If you're gonna flake, then don't even swap!

I am not a religious person, so please don't send things with crosses or religious quotes, etc.

Thanks for looking at my profile!

Have a great day!

Flakers gonna Flake:

As much as I hate to start this list, I need to keep track of those that flake on me or my swap members.

Comment: Mary, thank you SO much for such a beautiful envelope! Your artwork is absolutely stunning and I couldn't decide which side I loved the most! The colors and composition, and the 'feel' of the images was so impressive; this is definitely 'a keeper'!! Thank you also for the extra items you included, but the artwork alone, and the creative energy and time you put into it was what earned the heart. I'd give you more if swap-bot didn't limit me to one heart! Thank you again!!!
