Spoiler Alert!!

5/2/17 just wanted to let y'all know if I owe you a rating or a swap, I'll be returning home soon. My mom recently passed away after a long 10 year battle with Alzheimers. She is now resting peacefully in beautiful Colorado.

1/25/15 I'm back! Went cruising on the 18th & just got back today ;) I'm picking up my mail tomorrow so promise to rate all swaps that I receive. Sorry for worrying anyone... I hate that feeling of having a lost swap :/

7/27/14 I'm baaack but... headed out tomorrow until Aug 9th to NM to help my sister with my mom who has alzheiemers :( I should be able to get all my swaps out even if on the last day due.

7/17/14 I'm headed out of the country tomorrow on vacay for the next 10 days, so, I hope if you get me as a partner, you don't mind me mailing 1 or 2 days late. I believe I'm only in one swap where this might be the case. I will rate anything I receive as soon as I get home. Thanks y'all!

I pretty much put pictures of all my swaps on Flickr so just a heads up! If you want to be surprised, don't look :p

About Me

I've been married for 19 years to a wonderfully crazy man. We have two kids, a 18 y.o. son & a 17 y.o. daughter. We have 3 muttly dogs, 2 nutty cats, a 90 lbs. plus tortoises & 2 macaws, Picassa, a blue & gold and now a green wing, Lucy.

I'm addicted to making cards, inchies & ATC's. I've swapped at the old PCMB, afa, ISC & Splitcoaststampers. I love collecting little stuff such as bizzare charms, old skelton keys, doll heads, nuts & washers, watch parts & cogs... really anything old & rusted makes me happy ;)

Favorite Music

My favorite music would probably be classic rock...I am old ;) I especially like Van Morrison, Led Zeppelin, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Commadores, Chicago, Jimmy Buffet, Santana, Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Nickelback, Seether, Los Lonely Boys... anybody remember the Bay City Rollers? I use to love them. I like head banging music, punk, reggae, country, & grunge. Hmmm, guess I love it all.

Favorite Books

I love reading John Sandford, Lee Child, Michael Connelly, James Patterson, Sue Grafton, Patricia Cornwell, Steven King & so trying to read Sturgis Larsson's books.

Favorite Movies

I think my all time fave movie would have to be the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Wizard of Oz or Overboard.

Favorite Television

I watch Fox News. I get a kick out of the Big Bang Theory & saddened they took #!@? My Dad Said off the air, Person of Interest, Bones, Criminal Minds... I love the original Star Trek, Bewitched, Frazier & Jack Bauer in 24. Loving the new marvel TV series', the Arrow & Flash.....

Favorite Crafts

I love paper crafts! I USE to do a lot of atc swaps but have recently started doing mail art trades & since being on swap-bot, fallen in love with zines. I'm still learning tho :) I love vintage anything, grunge & especially Steampunk! I pick up old rusty nuts, washers, pieces of metal, things that others would consider junk! I also love inchies & got quite the collection going. Did I mention Tim Holtz? Or that distressed look? It is absolutely awesome! Old Skelton keys? LOVE them!!!

Postcards: Ok. Had to add this since lately I've been making a lot of pc's. I prefer homemade but if it has to be store bought, I'd love non touristy cards, sent naked with cool stamps.

Colors - I like reds, browns, burnt oranges & blacks mostly but ALL colors are great! Bling is awesome... But not necessarily "loose" glitter.

Likes & dislikes I think I'm fairly easy. As long as some thought is put into your project, I'd be grateful. I really don't like cigarette smoke smelly things... and thought I just might have to add, no childish or baby things, reward stickers or kawii. My kids are teenagers now so I have no use for such things anymore :[ Everything else is all good :)

I'm a paper hoarder (really!) so please no extras needed there, unless of course, it's cool emphera with bizzare images on it such as doll heads...


I will almost always have my items ready to mail as soon as I get my partners snail mail addy's so if you don't receive something from me, please let me know. I'll rant, rave and call the postal service a few names then, re-do. I will NEVER flake!! I will also ALWAYS rate as soon as I receive your item(s) otherwise, it'll get mixed in with all my other "stuff", lol! One more thing, please put the name of the swap somewhere, either behind the card itself or in any correspondence. I'm a swap addict & am usually doing quite a few swaps SO, it makes it much more easier & faster to rate if I have that info. Love you for it!

Comment: Crown Royal makes me laugh! My college boyfriend used to like it. He used to keep his dungeons and dragons dice in a Crown Royal bag. Heh...memories (yes, he was a nerd but don't tell him he'd be quite indignant.) Congrats on the grads. Will you be making a craft room in an abandoned bedroom? :)

was enclosed in my Un- Birthday package. WOW How did you make the candle lights on the cake twinkle? Love the quote ! Love your Art!


angelgram on Mar 13, 2017:


That had to take alot of crafting time (and how did you do it while getting ready for a trip ?) to create this gorgeous state maps, attractions & history decorated hinged wooden box with fold down clasp of your state ⍟ TX ⍟ & my state ♫ TN ♫. Love the other decorative elements on the box using washi tapes and special papers and global maps and LOL the down under location of Australia on the box. THEN I find a second smaller □ box and third smaller wood grain nesting □ box for me to craft. Already know one will be covered in teabags and the other in cancelled postage stamps from Swap-Bot. BUT then more surprises ☺ a Jane Austen Mini Book of all her novels in a pretty map bag and some Hotel/Resort Stationery. I am astonished at your reading of words on my profile and finding all these ways to touch my heart. ☺ THANK YOU for the Un-Birthday I will never forget 2017 and your amazing gift.
