About Me


I love to scrapbook and make cards. I try to craft every day! I am always surfing blogs looking for inspiration. I love ATCs, Smash Books and am just starting to dip my hat into mixed media with canvases, tags etc..

I am a SAHM to Riley (July 4/09) and also work part time at a real estate booking company and I also do medical transcription. I enjoy traveling, country music, movies and have a serious Diet Coke addiction.

Favorite Crafts

I love large images from various companies that I can color with my copics and use for my cards. I enjoy using my Cuttlebug and my cricut to design with. Some of my fave companies are Echo Park, Niki Sivils, Basic Grey, and Bella Blvd. I am a big Tim Holtz fan as well. I am a big fan of the 6x6 paper packs. I also love using ribbon, buttons and bling on my projects. I'm just starting to dabble in mixed media, so I like playing around with gelattos, inks, and the like. I am not a big fan of stickers but I pretty much love any other kinds of embellies... I pretty much scrap with any kind of color so that is never an issue.

Things I'd like to receive

Some of the things I like are:

6x6 Patterned papers


vintage button

vintage embellishments

stamped images to color


die cuts for cards

shaped or large brads

old book pages for mixed media use

Christmas embellishments

anything Tim Holtz

embossing folders (or embossed pieces of cardstock for cardmaking)


ATC images

Non craft related:

chocolate (except liquor filled) my favorite is Quality Street

anything Mr. Bean

fruity teas

hot chocolate


Quotes/sayings for my inspiration board

Favorite Television

I love CSI (all three), Criminal Minds, Supernatural, Hawaii 5-0, The Mentalist, Arrow and Arrowverse shows, Scandal, Castle, Grimm, Chicago Fire/PD/Med , The Flash, Dr. Who, Elementary, Madame Secretary, Blindspot, Quantico, and so many more!

Things I don't really care for

Stickers (unless they are 3D or something that would work well in my smash book) Eyelets small brads any sport related embellishments floral scented candles chocolates with liquor playing cards postcards keychains scraps recipes

The Written Word

For many years I had kept a journal and after finding them again, I realized how much I missed writing. Not anything fancy or novel-esque, but just writing because I felt like it. Sometimes journal entries, sometimes short stories, sometimes just a few lines here and there. I love round robin stories! Passing it around to people, and seeing how a few lines takes a story into a whole different direction than what you could have ever thought possible....


I love fruity teas! No so much the basics like earl grey, chamomile or orange pekoe....I would love to try one of your favorites or something that is from your country! :)

Comment: Happy New Year Tammy. I enjoyed reading your answers to the questions. I laughed when you said that you always watch the movie Die hard as my friend is always telling me that Die Hard is a classic Christmas movie. I also like Elvis singing Blue Christmas. Hope you had a great time in Cuba. happy swapping.

Comment: Thanks, Tammy. My faves are the deer (you could have sent lots of those, lol), the lightpost, the bird, butterfly and the balloon. Oh, and the words to use on cards. I don't scrapbook so the large ones I probably won't be able to use, but I can pass them on. What do you use the rectangle sized ones for - stencils? I like that you left the small pieces on one of them - I can use those for arrows.
Response: The rectangle sized ones, I actually use for cards. They are about a 4.25 x 5.5 or just a bit smaller..so you can add a background piece to them either DP or just colored with inks or something and then put that one on top, and then add one of the die cut words, a couple of enamel dots or something and voila! They are from Taylored Expressions, so you can look on their blog and stuff to see how they are used :)

I've just spent an hour looking through your blogs! Thanks a lot, lol. I think I need to "use my stuff", so I think I'll sign up. Did you know there's a FB group called Craft Hoarders? I've just joined it.
