About Me

I am a reader, mother, photography junky, and craft geek. I like long walks in dusty fields, A&W Cream Soda, Jelly Belly jelly beans, and cotton candy. I love to read, watch movies, and listen to music in between crafting and chasing my three little boys with my camera. I am not a picky person at all (I love to be surprised) and I have many, varied interests.

I live out in the middle of nowhere, and though I almost always send within a few days of partners being assigned, sometimes it takes a while for mail to find it's way to where it needs to go. Same goes for when you've sent something to me and it seems to be taking longer than necessary for me to get it. I guess that's just life out here in the plains. Please, please PM me before rating if you have not received anything from me. I'm more than happy to resend if necessary.

I try to rate right away, but there are times when I am without computer access for a day or two. Have no fear, I rate in all of my swaps.

I've tried to add lots of likes and wishlists, not as a "get me this" thing, but more so you get an idea of my tastes. Like I said above, I have many, varied tastes. So much so that it really isn't even worth me trying to list any dislikes.

Favorite Crafts

Crochet - I'm most proficient in crochet, it is pretty much my main craft. But I love trying at those I'm not that good at.

Scrapbooking - Digital and paper.

Dyeing - Kool-Aid, Jaquard Dyes, Wilton Icing colors, etc.

Sewing - Re-learning. It's been a while, but I'm working on some headbands, pillows, etc. and saving up scraps for a scrap quilt.

Cross Stitch/Embroidery - Started cross-stitching years ago. It's an addiction.

Polymer Clay -

Baking -

Just a little bit of everything.

Comment: Those colors are so pretty! Thank you very much.
Comment: Such a pretty dishcloth!
Comment: light yellow and red are not fall colors. you made a dishcloth and sent though.
Response: I’m very sorry you feel that way. As my own fall decor is mainly reds, I guess this is just a differing opinion.
Comment: Thank you for the great dishcloth and I love my scrubby!!! : )

gizmodust rated for January 2015 Color Swap! on Jan 31, 2015
Comment: Where do I start ? THANK YOU so very much for the BIG box of blue goodies. You sure hit on all my favorites. Always love to get fabric, any and all fabric. The craft items will be put to good use, even the little basket. I embroidered 5 sets of dish towels for Christmas so my floss stash can use some new additions. And the blue glass !!! How did you know that I love pretty glassware ? In the evenings I actually use fancy tea cups, big stemmed goblets and dainty, delicate glasses. This is perfect. Thank you again. If I could I would give you lots of HEARTS.
Response: You are very welcome. I love blue so I had so much fun picking everything out.
