About Me

Well a few years has gone by since I joined the world of swap-bot'rs. I love exchanging great and fabulous projects/swaps with all you out there dedicated to your crafts :)

Just a little bit about me...

I grew up in a big family full of "crafters". I now live on my own with my partner, two dogs, two cats and two boys (age 6 and 2).
A few years ago I bought my first home with my partner and we are busy putting all those crafting skills to good use. This of course means many projects on the go all the time. There is always something to do, design, fix or finish.

I am a tea drinker. I particularly like a good cup of tea, or 3, in the company of friends. It's so nice to sit and chat and drink and unwind with good company at the end of a long day.

Favorite Books

I love to read...when I can find the time. My favourite reads are psychological thrillers and self help/produtivity type books. I would have to say my all time favourite is False Memories by Dean Koontz. But I will give any book a chance. A few recent reads I have enjoyed are Blindness, the Twilight series and Under the Dome...but there are many more.

Favorite Movies

All time favourite movie is Life As A House.

Other movies I have enjoyed include the Harry Potters, Transporters, Outbreak, entire Fast and Furious series and any movie that involves dancing or gymnastics.

Absolute dislikes...Saw 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 3D

Favorite Television

I enjoy watching pretty well any home renovation show. I also enjoy Criminal Minds, NCIS, The Glades, Lie To Me, The Office, The Flash and The Arrow, as well as pretty much anything on HGTV and the Discovery Channel.

Favorite Crafts

I really enjoy any sort of paper crafting. I've been trying out scrap booking, card making, journaling, etc. Card making is the newest addition to my interests and I love the challenge over this last year creating my own cards for holidays and birthdays.

I have a lot of projects in the works. One of which is playing catch up with my photo albums.

I love fall and winter themes and colours and deep, dark purples. Also love wild birds, washi, fun paper clips and other (non-sticker) type embellishments.

Wish List

Here's what I am currently working on or looking for to add to my collection and use in my projects :)

  • Teas (green and black variety)
  • Buttons (any shape, size and colour)
  • Gifts for my son (6 years old), especially if post marked to him. He loves mail just like his mama! :)
  • Unused cards (store bought or hand crafted with envelopes)
  • Letter sets
  • Washi tape
  • Pocket letters

Dislikes ** Spiders and gruesome media

As projects and interests change I will be sure to update this list! Thanks for all the great goodies and packages so far. I love sharing in these swaps with everyone! :)

Comment: thank you so much for the awesome washi samples! =) all of them are new to me but one! happy valentines day! ♥
Response: Oh I'm so happy to hear that! My worst fear is that as our collections grow we'll get nothing but repeats but I just love seeing the new prints and finding fun projects to use them in :)

sjayana20 rated for Blank notecards swap on Mar 29, 2016
Comment: Thank you so much for the cute notecards 💌😀😊😊
Comment: Thank you for the stickers and note Sarah. My not so wonderful postman dropped this envelope in the rain and shoved it soaking wet, torn open, with the stickers everywhere - both inside and outside my mail box! GRRRRR. Everything is stuck to each other - I appreciate the ATC papers but I think they with the stickers are sadly a lost cause. Thank you for the nice note too - I dream of hosting game nights but my work schedule does not mesh with my friends (or my husband for that matter!). For now we just collect the games and *think* about playing... only to waste time online or on Netflix. Oh well! Take care and have a great day!
Response: Oh my goodness! So sorry that happened! );

Comment: Thanks, Sarah. The ladies I work with will love all the flowers. :)
Response: I'm so glad to hear it!
Comment: Thanks so much, Sarah! The theme you chose for the stickers was perfect, I loved so many of them I can't even decide which was the best. Thank you for the time you put into choosing each one just for me :D

Hi, from Read my profile and post a comment. It would seem that we share a love of reading. I read and review quite a few Suspense/Thriller books. If you like to read reviews, you can find mine on my review blog. I also love crafts of all sorts. And I so enjoy a good cup of tea. It sounds like we share a lot of interests. And FALL is my absolute favorite season of the year. I'm very new to Swap-bot, so I hope I will get to visit with you again soon.

I try to make cards but definitely like scrapbooking more! I love dogs, esp. puppies too! I hope we are able to do a swap together soon!

Hello there, from not so cold Denmark. Leaving a comment on your profile for the "Read my profile and post a comment" swap.
How is the weather treating you over there? I spent loads of time in Canada when I was younger, and absolutely love it there. It was great for photography and the like. Congratulations on the little boy, Lincoln is a very pretty name. We are trying to conceive at the moment, but it is taking its sweet time. So far we can only agree on a boys name as my husband want's all kind of weird names if it is a girl. So hopefully we will have a little baby Tristan some day! Hope you finish your book on his first year soon, I know I would love to make one for my children. Hugs Annesdatter
