About Me


Hello there. I'm JEss. Mom of two--to one boy, and one girl. Married to my guy that I have loved since high school (we never dated back then). Owner of the most sheddable dog I've ever seen. ( He's part corgi/part bichon.)

I have allergies: contact allergies to Pine and Ginger. So no scrubs or items containing those two ingredients for me.

Craft Interests : I like to smash, craft rolos, make envies, make matchboxes, attempt mail art, and enjoy altering things like boxes, tins, books...I do occasionally make atc's and journal as well. I am a novice sewer by hand of felties, still do counted cross stitch on occasion, and try what tickles my fancy.

Art By Others : I love anything handmade by anyone. Cards, layouts, boxes, any medium. Photo, hand drawn, stamped. I'm not too picky. The only thing I ask is that you try to do your best.

If you ever want to swap, let me know. I will do private swaps on occasion. If there is something you'd like to try or are new, I don't mind.


Likes/Loves:

  • Horses

  • Lilies

  • Dragonflies

  • Orchids

  • The Southwest (although I've killed two cactus...no green thumb at all)

  • Chocolate (without coconut)

  • Reading when I have the time

  • Below is a linked photo (not my own) to give you an idea of what I like in architecture. I like to take photos when I'm on vacation of trim, murals, molding...I'm drawn to interesting gothic looks mostly.


Favorites

  • Lime or Neon Green

  • Turquoise

  • Fuchsia

  • Graphic 45 papers

  • Basic Grey, SEI, handmade papers

  • Embellies like brads, bling, ribbon, lace, Tim Holtz, buttons and such

  • Inspired by Texture and Graphic Designs more than color

  • Kawaii. I grew up loving Little Twin Stars and My Melody. Then in my tweens I fell in love with Tuxedo Sam and Badtz Maru. Now I am a fan of Sentimental Circus, most food with faces, and anything monster/zombie/ghost. I also adore the fairy tale sets. My all time favorite right now is any matroyshka or woodland styles and Sentimental Circus. And there is always room in my heart for Keropi.

  • Halloween is my favorite holiday. I like the more gothic type items, but I have kids and dd is terrified.(So I have to settle for cute).

Favorite Books : include mystery, classic horror by Poe, Frankenstein, Dracula, and such, also some sci-fi and fantasy.

Favorite movies/tv : I love the old spaghetti westerns with Eastwood especially (thanks dad), old war movies (thanks mom), Twin Peaks all time fave, Classic Star Trek and newer Trek, Battlestar Gallactica the original not the new, CSI all of them, Witchblade, Highlander, you get the idea. Movies all time faves are Big Trouble in Little China and Escape from New York (yeah I seem to like Kurt), also Labrynth, Pump Up the Volume, Hudson Hawk, and any other odd quirky films. I can watch anything except really scary horror.

Favorite Music : My favorite band is Steppenwolf. I love Snowblind Friend, and The Pusher the most. Close second Metallica. While I can listen to pop, alternative, classical, ... Heavy Metal will always be my first love. Country my least. Although I do like older Tucker songs and Cash.


Dislikes :

  • Coconut

  • Cole Slaw

  • Foam Stickers or pieces

  • Eyelets

  • Scrap bits smaller than atc size

  • Sour candy: Although the packaging is often cool I would not, could not eat it from a bottle, nor a box, in a spray, or a tin....


Collections : I collect all kinds of things, but really love ornaments and bookmarks. Store bought, handmade, give-aways, I never mind if it's one of these two collections. I also collect toy keychains like Lego, Fisher Price, Potato Head, and novelty ones like that.

Projects : I'm working on the Disney albums and hopefully the school albums for the kids.

Comment: I think that is the most lovely notecard I've ever received...the atc is amazing as well...great idea on the mystery supply...so clever...and the card is gorgeous..that background...thank you so very much
Response: Thank you so much. I am happy you like it. It took me awhile to think of a design. The notecard was from a set from a fellow botter. I use them sparingly. Thank you for the rating.

Comment: You did a lovely job, so creative, and I am very fine with ATCs -- although I think a matchbox or tag would have been fine too, I would count them as "paper crafts".
Response: So happy you enjoy the atc. I was really stumped on what to try. Thank you for the kind rating. I enjoyed making the atc for you.

Comment: I couldn't have gotten a better partner. I saw your name on the beautifully decorated envelope and it was so awesome that I didn't even want to open it. You really took extra time to study my profile and send me the only envelope from a swap that I will ever keep. I adore the Halloween postcards and the other goodies as well. Thank you Jess for being one of my favorite people on Swapbot and someone I think of daily. I still have your Christmas gift to me by my bed and cherish it always. A billion hearts for an awesome person!! ♥♥♥
Response: I'm so happy you like it. I love stickers and after drawing what I did I knew which stickers I wanted to use. Thank you for the kind words and the rating. I enjoyed making an envelope just for you. :)
