UPDATES: I have been away for almost 3 years. I will be working on resending or sending any swap that I have a 1 on. Please bare with me as I get this taken care of. I am sincerely sorry that I had to step away suddenly and I regret dropping the ball here. I hope you all can forgive me. I love to swap and I missed you guys. Please give me another chance. I won't let you down again.
If you are owed something from me, please let me know. I have no access to my past records. I want to make good on ANYTHING I owe ANYONE. Swaps, tags, or anything else. I promise I am trying my best to make things right.
I am a happily married mom to 3, a boy (5) and 2 girls (12) & (5 months). We live in a small town in NC.
I will update my likes/dislikes often as I learn about them myself :)
I am not allergic to anything and I am easy to get along with.
I love helping other people. I often go without extras or luxuries to help others. I do my best and when I give, I give from the heart.
I am just a simple country girl who loves life.
Music: I like all kinds of music.
Generally, I do not like alternative or heavy metal but there are a few songs from the past that I like in this genre.
Books: I love true crime, memoirs, and biographies. I also like romance and chick-lit too. I love craft or fun do-it-yourself books. I do not enjoy sci-fi or westerns.
Movies: I love comedy movies, the funnier the better. A drama movie is good once in a while too. I also find my self watching cartoons and Disney movies with the kids...ahhh, family time :)
We are a DVD family, we watch lots of DVDs.
Television: I love Ax Men, Gold Rush, Extreme Cheapskates, Extreme Couponing, Gypsy Sisters, Pawn Stars, Hard Core Pawn, The Cake Boss, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Operation Repo, and many reality TV shows.
I love papercrafts. I am addicted to pretty papers, embellishments, and stickers. I really enjoy junk journals, ATCs, and card making mostly. I am still new at it though. I also like decoupage.
I play with polymer clay. I'm not good at detailed things yet but I love making buttons and ornaments.
I love making things with resin. Ornaments, cabochons, pendants, keychains, and tiles mostly.
I do not knit or crochet. I am a beginner sewer and quilter, I have not learned the harder stuff yet :)
I love craft kits that I can do with my kids.
I am open to learning new crafts, styles, and techniques. I love copies (xerox or handwritten) of fun crafts (detailed instructions please) that I can put into my binder. I would love for you to share your favorite craft techniques with me.
I Love ATC's....I would love to receive one from you.
I have never participated in FB, Decos, Slams, Crams, or Bags but I am willing to try. If you send one of these to me, please include a note telling me what I should do. I do not want to mess anything up. I am a quick learner and I promise to do as requested of me regarding these.
The colors pink, teal, and black. My favorite color combination is pink/black/white. I also like purple and silver.
Stationary sets, note cards, pretty pens, thin permanent markers, kawaii paper and stickers
Paper: I love pretty & bold papers. I love adhesive paper too!
(I also like used greeting cards for collage making. Only the front or the factory printed sentiments are needed. Not personal info.)
Stickers (singles, sheets, or binder pages): I LOVE Stickers! I don't mind used sheets as long as there are still some good ones left :) I love 3D stickers! I don't have a use or need for reward stickers though. I do not like to get stickers that have part cut off, meaning please trim them carefully.
Papercraft Embellishments & Tools : die cuts, vellum quotes, chip board, trimmers, rolling adhesives, punches, foam adhesive, crimpers, deco tape, glue dots, buttons, ribbon, lace, brads, flowers, craft knife blades, and rub-ons. (Just off the top of my head, lol) I do not have many cartridges for my Cricut or many punches either, so I love to get things you can make with yours :)
Unused postage stamps : as little as one or as many as a roll :)
Box Tops & Campbell's Labels for Education : My son's school really needs these. Your help with these are greatly appreciated :)
Handmade Anything (cards, tags, jewelry, etc.) I love to see other people's talents. I would be thrilled to get something made from you. Yes, you. :)
Magnets (thin ones) Plain or already decorated
Sample sized things : Any and all! They give me a chance to try before I buy or just have extra on hand. It's a collection I have too.
The scents of Pearberry, Vanilla, Sweet Pea, Strawberry and many others. I love fruity smells. There are only a few that I just can't handle and those are listed in my Dislikes. I do like Apple, just not with Cinnamon :)
I collect stick pins...new or old. These are also called hat pins or dress pins. There are different lengths, they are all great to me :)
I love small notebooks, memo sheets, magnetic lists or list sheet singles, and lined journals.
I like coupons for Free Items (no purchase necessary coupons). It's such fun, lol.
I love anything with butterflies on it.
I love kawaii. I just started collecting all the different things and they are just so cute. I don't have a large collection, but I am working on it. It is impossible to find where I live. There is really NO stores that carry it here. I have to order it online and boy is shipping crazy, lol. I don't have a favorite character yet, I am still learning them all. I do really like Hello Kitty and Cinnamoroll though. They are all so cute!
I am really pretty easy to please. There are a few things that I would rather not receive so I will list them here, but I have no problem passing something on that doesn't suit me.
I would rather not get:
The scents of pine, evergreen, winterfresh, cinnamon. I am more of a fruity smell person.
I don't have any use for teacher stickers or reward type stickers.
This list I will update as needed. These things are things that I would love to have. There are a lot of things that I can't get locally, living in a super small town.
Kawaii - anything kawaii really. Lettersets, memos, erasers, sticker sheets, sticker flakes, or anything kawaii that you have to share. I can't get it locally. .
Stamps/Images - rubber stamps or stamped images on cardstock that I would like to have are cupcakes, butterflies, birthday, pretty flowers, or any cute general stamps.
Images - I dont have a good printer, so I could use either 1 inch or 2 inch printed images of : Elvis, Elmo, cupcakes, roses, vampire related things, acoustic guitars, lighthouses, rainbows, clovers, tattoos, or any bright and bold images.
Stickers - I am always looking for great stickers. Please do not cut the sticker if you are trimming them though. I love all types of stickers! No teacher/reward stickers, please.
Markers, Colored Pencils, Copic Markers, Sharpies (Extra Fine), or even crayons. I will not use bad quality pens, pencils, markers or crayons on my projects for others. I am running low on what I do have though. Even if you would like to pass on some that are used, that's fine as long as it isn't dead yet.
Lettersets & Stationery - I love pretty paper and envelopes. Also notecards.
Scrapbooking - anything related to butterflies, guitars, roses, boy, 12 year old girl, baby girl, Harley Davidson, or truck drivers. I also love patterned paper, borders, rub ons, all kinds of embellishments and bling.
Card Making - I need good quality stamped images and sentiments. Also pretty cardstock in white or bright bold colors. Embellishments for all occasions.
Cellophane bags & Small zippered bags - cute designs or plain. I love these and I love to package things pretty.
I would love to get a whimsey jar, a matchbox, a dotee, and anything altered. I have seen so many swaps for them, but I don't know how to make them. I would love to give it a try if it's something that I like. I am a hands on person so getting one and seeing it would be awesome.
I finally got a Cinch machine and I would love things to put in Junk Journals. I like making these and love to use vintage and modern elements. Papers, postcards, ads, notecards, flashcards, glassine bags, tags, and more. There are so many things that can be used.
The swaps that I have never received anything for, I will list here. If you would like to be an angel for me, I would appreciate it so, so, so much!
Anything listed below is after messages were sent and 1 ratings were left. I always try to contact a member first, communication is important.
Angels for these swaps will be recognized here as well.
