About Me

Hello, Everyone! My name is Crystal. I'm just a lady with a love for all things DIY! I have an awesome hubby and a sweet fluffy dog that is pretty darn spoiled. I tend to consider myself a bit of a nerd. I love computer/video game and also learning new thing. I research constantly. I spend most of my time doing DIY remodeling or planning the remodel of the tiny little house we recently purchased. I am not afraid of a little hard work but I love to put my feet up and melt into a good book as well. Craftiness is not optional for me, I just love it. Every time I see something inspiring in the store I think to myself "how can I make that and what will I do to make it special?" I love Jesus and I know how important it is to appreciate the small things.

Favorite Books

I love books! That makes it difficult for me to list my favorites, but I can tell you some of the ones I love.

The Bible, The Harry Potter Series, Agatha Christie Novels, The Baker's Daughter by Sarah McCoy, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, The Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, The Wind Singer by William Nicholson Hard Magic by Larry Correia

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite TV shows are:

Grey's Anatomy, Bones, Project Runway, Rizoli and Isles, Warehouse 13, and I deeply miss Firefly!

Things I love!

I tend to find appreciation for most things, though somethings really do make me smile a little quicker!

  • Sunflowers

  • Flat Buttons

  • Ribbon

  • Washi tape

  • Sequins

  • The color yellow

  • Patterned Paper

  • Stamps

  • Die Cuts

  • Most things Colorful

  • Most craft supplies

  • Tea

  • Zentangle Doodles

  • Cupcake liners

  • Chocolate

  • Pens that write well

  • Buttons

  • Maple syrup

  • any crafting supplies (adhesive, markers, paint, yarn, fabric, needles, paper, etc)

  • quality bar soap (especially handmade)

  • hand made cards and art

  • I would love to start collecting ATCs

  • memo pads

  • little notebooks

  • journals

  • sewing patterns

  • paper crafting templates

  • decoupage items

  • vintage anything

  • recipe cards

  • note cards or stationery items

  • books

  • essential oils

  • making people happy

  • cooking

  • board games

  • card games

  • Sudoku

  • crosswords

  • baking and baked goods

  • fabric

  • decorative planner goodies!

I understand why most greeting card swaps have rules against sending birthday or thank you cards but as long as it is a high quality or a beautifully well made card, I definitely do not mind getting those types of cards (blank). Same with scripture postcards. Even if the swap is not specifically for that type of card or postcard (as long as it isn't a completely different unrelated theme) I would still give a 5 rating.

I have NO allergies though I am a vegetarian so snacks or candy with gelatin or animal products (except for dairy, eggs, honey) aren't wanted but if I do receive them I can just pass them to my hubby so I wouldn't be offended either.

Things I do not love

  • not rating in a timely manner (it makes me nervous!)

  • dragonflies

  • kiddie stickers (unless they are nice disney ones)

  • feathers, real birds freak me out

Tea Preferences

I love love tea! I am open to try anything though there are few kinds that I enjoy the most! I do not mind having a few herbal teas to drink in the afternoon or evening but they are not my favorites. I have come to realize that I am very keen on any teas with hibiscus! Yumm yumm. I like white teas, black, and green. Earl grey is another of my favorites. I enjoy fruity teas. I do not like tea with vanilla, hazelnut, caramel, etc

Mailing and rating

I recently (September 2015) received a 3 rating due to a postmark date one day past the due date. It has caused me to check in with my postal worker and I was informed that since it is such a tiny post office (in a rural community) that mail wont receive a post mark until it reaches the larger post office a little under 2 hours away. They only send mail there Monday through Friday and it gets collected about 11 am. Since finding this out I will be much more careful about getting my swaps out early so they do not sit at the post office without a post mark but if you notice that the date on the postmark is different then the one on my swap card that is the reason :)

Comment: Thanks for sharing! To me, tofurkeys are ok but not quite the same as the real turkey. I prefer real turkey myself. I had sweet potatoes this year. Cut up and not in a casserole. I don't like the casseroles that much either. I also do not like to shop on Black Friday. After working it for about 3 or 4 years, in retail...no way.

Comment: I agree, too much sugar ruins sweet potato casserole. I put a few mini marshmallows on top, just for aesthetics. I've never had cranberry sauce on dressing before, that sounds delicious! It sounds like you make a lot of yummy foods for your family. Happy Thanksgiving :)

Comment: You did such a great job coloring your envelope I almost didn't believe it was hand colored until I opened it and saw the maker strokes from the other side! I appreciate your thoughtfulness in leaving my envelope unglued. It is starting to get uncomfortably hot here in Florida, but so far it doesn't seem as bad as last year. Hope you're doing well. Happy swapping!
Response: I am so glad that you liked it 😃It isn't as hot this year when I am either which is nice! Thank you for the heart.
