Favorite Crafts

I am a teacher aide in junior high. I also have a B.S. in Education and am certified to teach junior high-high school. I have three children and six grandchildren. I live in a very small community, but have spent several years in Georgia and North Carolina teaching.

I will be refraining from swaps until we can flatten the curve with Covid19.

***My 100th completed swap is fast approaching. I will send my 100th swap partner something special to celebrate! 🎈🎉😘 My 100th swap was a mini Spring pocket letter sent to Isabellasnow! 💌

Pet Peeve: On this site, it’s the non-raters. Just find it rude to not acknowledge a swappers effort.

On a personal note, I need to reach out more and make new friends. Sometimes I find it easier to just stay home alone rather than get out and socialize. I also need to get serious about becoming more health conscious - especially with my eating habits.

About Me

My passion for crafting really start to grow after my mom passed away. I love to create but sometimes have no one to share anything with so I thought a swap group would be the answer. I really am enjoying the fact that I can pick and choose my interests and when I want to swap. I love the mail when it arrives and the beautiful creations made for me. I love trying new things to create as long as I can view a picture or tutorial.
