About Me

I am self-entertaining, generally happy but lost, somewhat selfish, easily misled and distracted, intelligent, bashful, lazy yet motivated conformist and lover of all things peanut butter.

I am a working Mom with the three most adorable kids on this planet (evidenced by the unfathomable number of “World’s Cutest Kid” awards, all of which are imaginary, but well deserved).

I work hard, follow Jesus, love my kids, adore my husband, and do the best I can with what I have been given.


Things I love: Star Wars, Space related science, Pencils, Unicorns, Photography, Vintage Prints/Tin Types, Vintage cards, Crossword puzzles, Writing, Scripture, ATC, Book Marks, Anything Christmas, Fall and Spring, English Bulldogs, Costume Jewelry, Felt, Peanut Butter, Lemon flavored things, Flowers, Tea/Coffee, Board Games, & Shoes.

Trinkets for my three kids are welcome: Ages 2, 4 & 7.

Music: Christian, Holiday, 80s, & Singer/Songwriter

Books: Non-fiction, Self-help, & Devotionals

Specific Book Favorites: Atlas Shrugged & Eragon & Jitterbug Perfume

Movies: Comedies & Disney

TV: Big Bang, Duck Dynasty, Simpsons, Shark Tank, How It's Made, & Anything DIY/Home Improvement


  • No glitter please. I hate glitter unless it is sealed with lacquer.
  • Nothing profane, vulgar, or nude. I have small children and don't need hate in my life.
  • No licorice. Yuck.
  • No dark chocolate or chocolate with coconut or coffee beans.
  • I bite my nails so...anything finger nail related makes me frown.
  • I don't plant things so I won't get much use out of seeds.

I'm pretty easy going and enjoy getting sweet pretty mail.

Status of Current Swaps

If you are in a swap with me you can expect two things: I will always send out my swap before the due date and I will always rate as soon as I get your package.

If you see that I have marked a swap as "sent" but have not received your package within a week of the "sent" date, please message me.

If I am doing a private swap with you I will keep you updated privately.

Sample ATC

Please visit my Instagram account to see all samples of my artwork. I do watercolors mostly but I have been known to do a pen drawing now and again. Below are a couple recent ones I did.

If you are interested in a private trade just let me know. I trade on Instagram and here.

Comment: You hosted this swap but I've not received anything from you, nor any response about my inquiry for my birthday gift. Nor any help about the multiple others who flaked on me for this swap.

Comment: Thank-you for the washi tape and counted cross stitch kit. It was sent alone, unwrapped in the envelope and I really had no idea from what swap this was from. I belong to many RAK groups and do secret sister swaps as well. Its a very cute frog learn to craft counted cross stitch that I am sure I will enjoy learning from. Thank-you
Response: Im sorry I didnt get abcard and wrap it. I mailed it in a hurry and remembered after it was in the mail! I saw that you wanted to learn/do needlecraft and thought the froggie was a good starter one! Happy Birthday!
