About Me

I am 40 years old and have a wonderful 18 year old son at home who just started his first semester of college. I work full time as a nurse. I have 2 cats that are 12 years old - brother and sister born from the same litter.

Favorite Books

Historical fiction is my absolute favorite! Some books that I have read and enjoyed:

  • Pillars of the Earth
  • Outlander
  • Zipporah, Esther, Sariah (wife of Moses)
  • The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek
  • Discovery of Witches
  • fantastical stuff like The Hobbit
  • thrillers of all kinds - Then She Was Gone, Bone Parade, and anything from Karin Slaughter.

  • Comics including: I Hate Fairyland comics (that's the name LOL but its great!)...and pretty much anything from Skottie Young including Middlewest, Bully Wars, Strange Academy *Farmhand, Bone Parish, Life is Strange, X-23, Wolverine

  • Audible listening

I Hate Fairyland

Favorite Entertainment

  • Zelda BOTW
  • The Witcher 3, Skyrim
  • Assassin's Creed (favs are Black Flag and Syndicate-currently enjoying Odyssey)
  • Mario anything
  • Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War
  • Far Cry 5

  • 80's cartoons/comics like Masters of the Universe, Garfield, Smurfs, Jem and the Holograms



Favorite Crafts

  • sewing (quilts, bags, mug rugs, key fobs, etc)
  • prayer cards
  • I am not doing as many paper crafts as I once was these days. But occasionally will dabble a bit! When I do it's usually watercoloring or bible journaling
  • I no longer do a paper planner - I have officially switched to a reusable RocketBook and I love it!

As for my quilting style: I like more modern and tend to gravitate to colors other than pastels. I don't dislike pastels though. I am a very generous rater so if you are my quilt swap partner please just have fun in your process of quilting. Don't stress about whether or not I will like it. To me that takes out all of the fun in why we are quilting in the first place!

What I expect from SwapBot

I am hoping to connect with people from all over the world. I love learning about people and different ways of living other than my own. It is so much fun to receive happy mail, but without the people/stories behind it there wouldn't be as much joy and connection! Swapping should be fun and without stress, no drama, just loving, positive people trying to connect and grow!



My favorite things to receive are:

homemade items of ANY kind - sewn, crochet, knit, paper, written stories, poetry, drawings, etc.... I will always leave good feedback if you put effort in it and send it on time. I don't rate down if it isn't in my taste. I just pass it along to someone who I know would like it. I am very appreciative of anything I receive and get way more pleasure preparing and sending to you!

Likes (not limited to):

  • need 5x5 squares of any comic book, tv, video game related fabrics. I am making an I Spy quilt with this theme. I currently have about 42 squares which is about half of what I need.
  • green (all shades) - I also really like coral, navy, purple
  • animals (except snakes and scorpions)
  • environmentally friendly/upcycling/re-using
  • no allergies to foods (love getting your local taste/snacks)
  • anything 80's early 90's cartoons
  • Marvel comics (or DC - Marvel just tends to be more of a favorite of mine)
  • video game related stuff
  • Christian related items (no other religions please)
  • For swaps that are thrift store based: any clothes or fabrics that are clean and are non-stretchy that can be used in my quilting or bag making is great. Any quilting templates that you find.
  • Fabrics - I am looking for yellows, tans that I can use in a pattern I am making that has sunflowers - 10x10 squares


Don't feel like you need to include "extras". Hearts are given because of effort or simply because I love it oh so much!

Comment: Wow, Tina, the purse is BEAUTIFUL! The bobby pin holders are so cute, and your handmade card is wonderful. I wish I could give you more than one heart. You are VERY TALENTED! Thank you so much!!!
Response: Thank you for the kind words. They were so much fun to make. There isn't a lot of sewing swaps on here so when I get the opportunity I go all out! - especially if its going to someone that doesn't have sewing as their primary craft. I am glad you liked it all.
Comment: This is probably the best swap I've ever received. You went WAY above and beyond expectations. I had problems with the directions for the front pocket as well. I yelled and got frustrated for 15 minutes before I just gave up and did what I knew. You loaded my swap package with amazing-ness. ONE MILLION THANK YOUs. 💜
Response: I am so glad you enjoyed it! It was fun to make minus the hiccup with the pocket but I am glad I wasn't the only one who had trouble! Thanks for hosting!!
Comment: Wow! I was lucky to have you as a partner. Thank you
Response: I am glad you liked them. That is the first time I have ever made one so it was a little interesting trying to figure out what to do...
pbcquiltlover rated for I Spy Jars Quilt block swap #7 on May 15, 2019
Comment: Thank you for the lovely jar!
Comment: Thank you so much for the paper craft package! I love everything! Good thinking with the fabric envelope, my mailman shoved the package into the mailbox and torn it all up, but everything was still intact. It's all very much appreciated 😊
