About Me

I Pledge to Rate

updated 8/17

No Candy or Food items please.

I live in the Pacific Northwest, Whidbey Island, U.S.A. Love it here, can't imagine living anywhere else. Married to the love of my life Adam, mom of two grown kiddo's, grandma of 3 granddaughters, kitty mommy to Jack and Shadow.

I love swapping. Following through is important to me... from both sides.

Fave crafting/hobbies... doll making, altering things, making miniatures, wood carving, art journal, jewelry making, assemblage, configuration, repurposing, gardening especially miniature.


I enjoy not in any particular order lol...

doll and dollhouse miniatures

roomboxes and diorama

Halloween, Christmas, non religious

Vintage, esp. holiday

gnomes, elves, pixies



ocean/beach, nautical

bohemian, hippie, gyspy

nature, miniature garden


altered art, assemblage, collage

mixed media art journals

embellishments and ephemera

small antique unique treasures

old typewriter keys, skeleton keys, pocketwatches

vintage, vintage ornaments

chunky charm bracelet

art dolls, handmade dolls

handmade with care

vibrant bright, not pastels. i don't do pink

altered matchboxes, altered tins

Cabinet of curiosities, adding to my curiosity cabinet

Thx ahead of time. pictest

Favorite Music

50's/60's/70's/80's/90's, pop, classical, country, blues, jazz, swing, dubstep and the beat goes on... Not into rap, slasher rock, death metal, things that grrrrate on the nerves.

No thank you's

NO candy or food items please. Flakers... please don't. It just disappoints and tarnishes trust. You wouldn't want someone to flake on you, would you? Please, No religious, political, lambs wool, cedar, lavender (allergic to both), unfinished projects, dirty/stained/smelly items, amigurumi, anime, manga, Hello Kitty, kawaii, raspberry or mint anything, pastel colors. Please no heavily scented items: Febreeze, foamies, baby powder, lotions, soaps, makeup, dryer sheets. Note: dryer sheets don't really don't cover up odor/smells, they just make a new stronger odor/smell. thx

Comment: Love my box!! It came at the perfect time. We just came home from dr and skylar has Strep so your extra for her cheered her up and she says thank you thank you thank you 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃. I can't wait for her to feel better to make cookies. Love the block idea and will do it with my girls. I have a huge Troop of 3, so I will also share with the chinnies. They love blocks and will start the cross stitch probably tomorrow out on the swing on porch if it is as nice as today.

Comment: I love the candle jar you made! It's beautiful! I like all the different elements you used. The zombie cracks me up! The battery tea light is perfect because I can keep the cool lid on. Thank you for all the fun goodies inside as well! It's really cool & unique :D
Response: I'm so glad you like the jar/stand. That spider/zombie freaked me out every time I saw it. Crrreepy! The base is silver plated, so should age in a cool way, adding to the creepiness. Halloween Hugs, Sandy

THANK YOU!! You are so awesome! I LOVE the bunnies you sent me!! The pin is hanging on my tree, and I can't wait to display the needlepoint bunnies! That was such a super sweet RAK and I really appreciate it! Hope you have a wonderful Holiday season and I hope to swap again with you next year! Best wishes, Joyce
