About Me

I Pledge to Rate

what I pledged

NOTE: Because I have a chronic pain condition, I am often a bit late on deadlines but I ALWAYS send and I usually try to make it extra special to make up for the wait. Just a FYI for anyone waiting for a package from me.

38, divorced, have 3 wonderful cats that OWN me! :-) I also have two step-daughters, 14 and 16. Both live with my wife #1 who I get along with great so I still get to talk to the girls. YAY! I am no longer able to work due to chronic pain from migraines so I have a lot of time on my hands to craft and swap. :-)

Favorite Books

Fantasy fiction (Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Raymond Feist Anne McCaffrey, Douglas Adams, and for dark fantasy: Laurel K Hamilton, Nancy Collins, and Anne Rice), books about Wicca and magick

I like:

Cats (Domestic and the Big Ones!), Critters of all kinds, Fairies, Magical, Mystical Stuff, Celestial Themes (i.e. Moons and Stars), PURPLE!, Chocolate (allergic to peanuts though!),coffee, Starbuck's Frapuccinos(especially if they have crunchy ice in them!), homemade soaps, lotions, etc, medieval themed items, caring, loyal friends!

Favorite Movies

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is my current favorite because it reminds me not to take life so seriously. I also love the LOTRs, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Princess Bride, Ella Enchanted, Lost Boys, Interview with the Vampire (but they ruined Queen of the Damned in my opinion), Mists of Avalon, Excalibur, Practical Magic, The Craft, Bewitched, all of the Indiana Jones', any good thriller/action or comedy flick.

Favorite Television

Anything on the History or Discovery Channels, Law and Order, House, Its Me or the Dog and I'm obsessed with Ghost Hunters ("Dude! Run!").

Favorite Crafts

I like making candles, though I'm a little burned out on them at the moment (no pun intended!) and I used to like latch hook and embroidery but they are time consuming and not a good choice for swaps so I'm looking into trying new things. I want to learn how to make soap, lotion, lip gloss, stuff like that. I like making bath salts and bath oils, as well as teas, spice blends and "Gift in a Jar" mixes. I used to draw really well in high school but can't do it worth beans anymore!


No peanut butter (or peanuts in general just to be safe) or vanilla SCENT (as a food additive I'm fine) as they trigger my migraines.

Will Craft For:

I will happily sell or trade candles (any color, any scent). I have votive molds and a 7" pillar. I will be trying my hand at dipped tapers soon as well.

I can also design swap cards for you and take any pictures you email me and turn them into 1.5" wide stickers (length is unlimited) with my sticker machine. I can make either permanent stickers or repositionable stickers (great for scrapbooking!)--your choice. This is my newest toy and I'm just dying for excuses to use it. :-)

Also, cold, hard cash is greatly appreciated as I am disabled and unemployed at the moment. :-( But at least Swap Bot helps keep me sane! Its definitely cheered me up! If you do want to send money, PM me for my Paypal info or mailing address.

Email me and we'll talk. :-)


Anything with cats on it, especially Maneki Neko's or Neko's (that just means "cat" or "kitty" in Japanese) in general. They're my latest obsession. LOL /_/\ ( o.o )

^ <

Graphics that would make great stickers or even t-shirts (seriously thinking of starting a cafe press shop)

I'm always up for decks of tarot cards. I want to start collecting them for their artwork. So far, I have the Hanson Roberts, Rider Waite, The Arthurian Legend, Lord of the Rings and now the Medieval Scapini deck thanks to @sima :-)

Art work from Nene Thomas, Carrie Hawks, and Amy Brown.

Coloring books! Sometimes sitting down and coloring with my colored pencils really mellows me out. Oh yeah, colored pencils would be nice too!

Well, I had someone here on SB ask me for an actual wish list, so I set up a few categorized ones on Amazon and I'll share them here in case anyone else wants to take a look.

My Generic, Catch All Wish List

Bath and Body Product Supplies List

Soaping Supplies List

Candle Supplies List. This one is actually empty at the moment since I haven't had a chance to go "window shopping" yet. If you want to get me candle supplies, PM me. :-)

Comment: This is the most exquisite thing I've ever received. The wait was well worth it. I would have waited even longer for something that terrific. Thank you so much for putting all the time & effort into this piece. You should definitely take off some time & reward yourself with a personal project. I can't say enough how much that means to me. THANK YOU for being so generous to me!
Response: I felt like I do when I get my kids gifts--kept checking everyday to see if you'd gotten it yet! :-) I'm generous with you because you're always generous to me when you get me for swaps. ;-) I'm soooo happy you like it! It makes all the work (and nightmares!) worth it! :-)

Response: YW--I really, really hope you like the music. I think that's the best part of it all. Shoot me an email after you've listened and let me know, so I can tell them--"I'm with the band." Well, actually helping them decide how to set up their website. :-)

Thanks ktkatz. I haven't quite perfected "my art" in the recycled shopping bag department yet, so I'll wait a bit before I join any swaps like that--but thanks for the invite! :-)
