About Me

I am a medical assistant living in Oklahoma. I am married to a wonderful man, my highschool sweetheart, and have two grown children. We are enjoying our newly empty nest...although it's oddly quiet around here. I have three sweet, spoiled dogs, a Rat Terrier, Zoey, a pug/chiuaua mix named Dynamite and a tiny Chiuaua named Peanut. Our Family loves to travel and we spent most of the family vacations while the kids were little visiting all the states finally finishing the 50th state a couple years ago! Hawaii was our grand finale of our goal, and man, did we have a blast! I can't wait to see what travel adventures lay ahead for us. So far, Alaska has been my favorite. I believe that travel is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your children and yourself. We also camp in our rv, go geocaching, go boating with friends, fish, kayak and hike and I do a little backpacking. I am also a runner - I have run 3 marathons. I really love being outside.

Favorite Crafts

I love doing crafts of all kinds. I do wearable art, sewing, paper crafts. I like indie art, recycled crafts, fabric crafts, vintage and new funky ideas. Pretty much if it's crafty...I love it! Swap-bot has opened a whole new world of ATC's, zentangles, match-boxes, inchies,mini-zines and fabric post-cards. Haven't made many yet, but I'm ready to learn! I also love to collect and share vintage patterns, fabrics, trims and buttons. The only craft I don't really do is yarn crafts (knitting and crochet) I love making gifts for people. I also make velvet backed headbands for myself and other running buddies, so if you send me velvet or printed ribbon please send at least 15" so I can use it for a headband.

Me + Mail = Happy

Since I was a child I have loved writing letters and decorating the envelopes. We traveled a lot when I was a kid and I always had a former classmate or friend I was writing to. I felt a sense of rebelion when I would scribble a picture or cartoon across an envelope or cover it with stickers. "I can't believe I'm getting away with this!" I would think as I sent it away with my mom to be mailed. (She was a postal worker for almost 30 years) I take great delight in mailing and receiving unusual, oddly shaped, naked mail and decorated packages. I always imagine how many people will see it along its way and what the receiver will think when they open the mail box!

a little more about me....

My favorite color is red, because it is the best color known to man teehe, everyone looks great in it! - but I love all the colors of the rainbow, yellow and I have had somewhat of a difficult realtionship, but after quilting and doing some painting I realized that it is the sunshine of colors.

I collect thimbles, unusual and vintage pincushions and sewing kits, ladybugs, and vintage or home-made Christmas ornaments, I especially love home-made AND vintage - my favorite ornament is a little angel from the 50's that someone made with a doll's head and some lace and beads and a little sequin for her halo - it is wonderful. Every year I tell myself, NO MORE ORNAMENTS, and every year I buy like a gazillion more. I have finally resorted to just buying more trees!

I LOVE thrifting and yard-saling and would much rather have something original, old or hand made than something new, shiny, and mass-produced.

Comment: Thank you for the cute zine and the goodies! Question, where did you get the card that you wrote on? It's floral and says breath in and out... Just wondering because I have those words tattooed on me :D
Response: HAHA! How oddly awesome is that?!?! I guess that tatoo (and card) are really meant for you. The card came from a package set I got at a discount store called Tuesday Morning. I'm afraid I don't have the original package anymore to see what brand it was. Could you maybe make a color copy of it or scan it and then print some onto card stock?

Comment: I would have rated a three because the package didn't reach the purchase amount required but Tiffany offered to send more. I told her not to as Halloween is over.
Response: I did spend required amount. I am so sorry you were disappointed.

Comment: For $2 is seems to be about a fair amount of candy. Could be a bit more perhaps, but the variation is great! I knew the Twix and Reese's already, and I'm really looking forward to try the Wonka candy. That private swap you mentioned in the added note is a great idea as well, but we probably should save that for winter/ early spring, when it's not so hot. EDIT; in amount of candy it felt a bit low, but after rating I thought I remembered hearing Sunkist was expensive, so that's why there is less candy.
Response: Sorry if you felt like it wasn't enough. Actually, just the Sunkist candy alone was $3.99. It is my favorite and very hard to find, so I have to get it at a specialty grocery.

So glad you got your "naked" mail!! I really wasn't sure it would make it through the mail so I sent something that wasn't a big deal if it didn't survive...the postal worker tried to tell me I had to put it in an envelope and I said the whole purpose was to send it "naked" just for fun and he says..."OK, why not??? Let's see what happens!!" I will have to let him know it MADE IT!!!!...Charlene
