About Me

Thanks for stopping by my profile!

A little about me...

I am a wife, a homemaker, a dog mom, a chocolatier, a crafter, an artist, a writer, a bargain hunter, a gamer, a snail-mailer, and a Swap-Botter. That pretty much sums me up. I have recently begun a new endeavor of creating art to sell. I have my mixed media art for sale in a local store :)

A huge part of my life is my girls. I have 3 pooches who keep me on my toes and keep me company all day. They are my 3 sidekicks. In case I'm in a swap for them...

Lola- mountain feist mix (Loves any biscuits/treats and the only chewies she'll eat are Good-N-Fun brand - any type)

Pickle- mountain feist mix (Loves rope toys, stuffed squeaky toys, any biscuits/treats, and chewies and bones of any type)

Goldie- cocker spaniel (Loves the rubbery LOUD squeaky toys. Seriously, the louder the toy the more crazy she is about it. The Dollar Tree has some great ones. Loves any biscuit or treat or chewy/bone)

Cooter- red-eared slider- aquatic turtle (eats ReptoMin green floating reptile sticks and freeze-dried shrimp small or large for a treat.)

      Stocking Stuffer Private Swaps:

If anyone (in good standing and with good ratings) wants to do a private swap for a $1-$2 wrapped stocking stuffer to be saved until Christmas, let me know. My favorite thing to open on Christmas is my stocking and I have a huge one to fill :)

      My sister & her pennies:

My sister, Amy, lives a ways away from me in Minnesota. We talk on the phone and Skype all the time though. She collects squished pennies as of last year and doesn't have very many yet. She's always looking for more. So any that you send me will put a huge smile on her face!

Drawing, Painting (acrylic, watercolor), Collage/Mixed Media, Zentangle, Assemblage

      The type of writing I enjoy doing:
