About Me

Hello! I am a Christian who respects all people and their beliefs.

I live in Wisconsin, USA, am married to a great man, Paul, and we have two bulldogs Bowzer and CeCe-Penelope. We have had bulldogs for the last 20 years and they are our world!!!! Our lives revolve around them, which we are fine with!

First of all, I want to let you know that I appreciate the effort that swappers put into swaps. I respect the fact that we are all at different points in our skill level and my skill level may not the same as yours, but I am going to put my heart into checking your profile and sending you a swap that I truly believe you will love! And I receive swaps with that same feeling.

I recycle envelopes if I can, as I think it is good not to waste, when I can reuse. :)

I have just started making art journals, so any supplies that can be used for that would be great!

Stationery - I can't seem to find pretty Stationery anywhere, so if you can find it, I would love to have some pretty sheets to write my letters on. :)

Pink is my favorite color!!

I love yellow and all pastel colors. I have lots of hobbies.

I quilt, make cards, scrapbook and garden.

Bible Art Journaling is a new hobby of mine, so anything for that would be awesome!! :)

Sparklie things and all things glittery!!

bulldogs, horses, the ocean, shells and all things pink.


I like to read, so bookmarks are always fun!!


Chocolate and coffee and hot chocolate

pens and pencils too, erasers, notepads, note cards

coffee cups and all things coffee related. Pretty spoons to stir my coffee with are always treasured!

I am starting to collect neat creamers to pour my milk out of for my coffee.

I love all holidays and change my house out for all of them!

fun lotions, bubble bath and soaps


sanddollars, dolphins, anything ocean related.

Books: I like to read happy books!! Anything about animals, quilts, the ocean, inspirational. I like fiction and non-fiction. :)

Things I am not fond of:

I do not like skulls, witches, zombies or things of that nature. Other than that, I am open to new things and ideas! That is the fun of swap bot, I think! I just might find something I love, that I never would have known about!

About my swaps: I always check profiles and will work hard to send things that I believe you will like. I may send swaps out on the last day or close to it, because I do not really have items at home and will be shopping for the little treasures I send to you. Sometimes I have to order things on line to get just what I am looking for to send to you. So, please know that I put my heart into every swap I send, so I will be using all the time I am allowed to make what I think will be a wonderful, happy swap for you! :)

Comment: So amazing. Thank you. So far, I've opened three, a scarf, a Bible and the Liz Curtis Higgs book on Proverbs. Also so far, the theme alludes me! With those three items, maybe "covered in the Word." May open one more. The rest with be surprises for Houston. Thanks!
Response: Oh yeah! I had a theme going, but then I went off the rails!! The them was all about books, so "covered in the Word" is really good!! :) xxoo
Comment: Bowzer and CeCe-Penelope outdid themselves! My favorite so farnisvtheir gorgeous mugs ;) Saving their envies for last. Great minds... my partner received fall themed kitchen goodies and pumpkin goodness.
Comment: Shannon, the thought, time and extra care you put into this swap is really a reflection of the sweet and caring person that you are. The Bible scriptures will be hung up in my office and are so uplifting. The photos made us all laugh and smile. The gifts are so nice and so very generous of you. I love every single item you placed in the box. Thank you so much for making this last week so fun! And your emails to me are also equally as valuable to my heart. You're a very special lady!

Comment: The long leaf borders are just fabulous! I can't wait to use them. Thank you for all of the notes on your pages too. It was nice to see your insights not only on the pages, but via your additional comments.

Comment: I'm so glad you sent this study to me. It was an amazing journey to work through it. And the experience was all the more special because we studied the Gospel of John together.
Comment: Thank you for such and amazing introduction to this swap. Everything you sent to me was absolutely wonderful. I appreciate the effort, time and love you clearly put into this swap. Oh my gosh things were just the CUTEST EVER!!!
Comment: Great package! I'm looking forward to using the items and testing out the napkins. How would the pretty diecut 6x6 papers be used? They're too pretty to cut!
Response: Hey!! So glad you liked it!! I was thinking they could be a simple tip-in, just to add a pop in your bible and also with gelatos, as a stencil. Using washi tape to hold it in place, and taking a little foam finger tip to get the color from the tube, and tapping it lightly on the paper to get that image. But, try it on paper first! :) xxoo Let me know how it goes!

Hello, Thanks for the profile comment, it's no problem really, I started your journal, I am still finishing my other journal I hope to have it done, so I can concentrate on yours. I came down with a bad case of carpal tunnel so, I will have to print and past on your your journal, just some, not all, I just cannot write much these days, I am waiting for my brace to come it, it's been a week already, I hope to get it any day now.

Yes I really missed swapping and drawing so I came back from my hiatus :) I would love to do a Christmas swap- feel free to set up whatever private swap you'd like and I'll join! I cannot believe Christmas is coming up so soon :)

libertylithium on Sep 25, 2017:

Hello Shannon! I was thinking of you- hope you're doing well! :)

You are such a blessing to the swap-bot community and to all those who have the pleasure of knowing you. I feel so honored to have met you. Even though it's been a short time, I am so glad we met. I look forward to many more years. You're such a sweetie! Love and hugs - Jill Now if only I wasn't a ding dong and knew how to put some really beautiful image on here to add with my comment. Just imagine a big bouquet of flowers okay? haha.
