About Me

I started paper crafting about 9 years ago when I decided to do my own DIY wedding. I realized how much I enjoyed making my wedding stationary, favor boxes, welcome gifts, and coordinating it all. I self taught myself by watching a ton of youtube videos....I stumbled across some craft fair idea videos and that's when it really began. I share this hobby with my sister. I do not have a website. We do local craft fairs. I am married, no children, unless you count our two cats. The cats came with him, and he was right I do love my furry children. Just lost our fur babies almost a month apart in Feb/Mar 2020.

Favorite Music

I'm pretty picky when it comes to music...but anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE PRINCE fan. ** THE GOAT **


Favorite Crafts

Paper crafts - I love 3D paper crafts i.e.. treat holders, gift bags and boxes packaging, and handmade embellishments. I do make cards as well. I watched a lot of swap reveal videos on You Tube, and I thought wow that's incredible I would love to join.

Because my favorite musician is PRINCE, clearly anything purple is all right with me. I do like neutrals and SAGE green as well. I am loving MINT GREEN. I've been sleep on that color. It's the new neutral and goes with every color. Love it. I don't too much care for pink or brights.

Regarding crafts ... I am not really into mixed media or rather the look of it. It's kinda grungy if that's a word. I like more of a scrapbook design. Mats, stamped images, sentiments, embellishments. I admire all the work done for Shabby Chic, but it's not something that I do. I do like different textures for interest. I like simple, clean designs. But I do not want to limit anyone's creativity by my dislikes.

Likes Dislikes ABCs

Below is an ABC list of some of my likes and some dislikes. I saw this on someone's profile, and thought it was a pretty neat idea.

A - Altered Office Items post it notes, paper clips, notebooks

D - Dangles, I've been obsessed with buying beads to make dangles.

K - Krazy Coupon Lady

L - Lindor Lindt Milk Chocolate

M - Michaels Craft Store , MINT GREEN!

N - (Handmade) Notecards, that fold

O - Ombre

P - Purple and of course PRINCE

Q - Quick Dry Glue

R - (Likes) Ribbon, Rosettes, (Dislike) Reward Stickers

S - Shaker Cards or Shaker Elements

T- Tuesday Mornings (sniff the one closest to me is closing) The nearest one is in another state like 40 miles away...

U - Unicorns

V- (Dislike) Vintage, (Like) Violet

W - Word Puns

X - eXtra gum or any sugarfree gum

Y - You Tube Paper Craft Videos

Z - my Zodiac Sign (Taurus)

Nevi2018 rated for Cheerful Mail on Apr 24, 2020
Comment: Today was my day OF MAIL!! I ordered soooo Much AND Then your Package arrived and All I kept saying was Oh My Goodness!! My husband was like seriously I just bought you a Die Machine!! LOL!! I really LOVE this It was amazing I wasnt sure if you made it for this craft or not. But you hit it spot on!! I love sunflowers (I am forgetting the name but its the thing around the whole) I loved the fences and the lip balm. I AM IN LOOOOOVE WITH TYPE WRITERS!! Before my mom died (unexpected heart attack) she moved in with my brother. and I stole a like 4,000 type write (if it was in mint condition which this thing is probably not even worth 10 cents LOL) but I LOVED IT!! and My mom said take that to the car I DID! MINE!! LOL I also love bikes that seem to be so popular in crafting right now. Oh you did amazing!! Thank you!! Is there anything higher than a 5 <3 LOL I feel bad what my partner is getting HAHA
Response: The eyelets were the sunflowers. And you are welcomed. I hosted a Loaded Tag Flip Swap and I made extra just in case I needed to angel. So the Cheerful Mail Swap was perfect to send one of my extra Loaded Tag Flips. So glad that you loved it.
FLWAVE rated for Loaded Tag Flip on Apr 23, 2020
Comment: Venetta—WOW, thank you!!! Your loaded tags are fabulous, and I appreciate all of the details that you put into everything you sent right on down to the wrapped chocolates. All of the goodies you included were obviously picked just for me, from the typewriter to the wings to the mini gate (which is so unique—I’ve never seen those). You must have a better relationship with your Cameo than me. I’m usually cursing it, but love it when I get desirable results. So sorry to hear about your cats. Not that any time is good to lose a pet, especially ones with you for so long, but it must be even more difficult with everything else happening. I hope you and your family stay safe and well. And thanks a million for the wonderful swap!
Response: You are welcomed. I may have peeked at your profile a little....LOL thank you for noticing. My Cameo has been crashing at least once or twice a week. So when it's good, it's great! I did use a combination of metal dies and my Cameo. I truly enjoyed making this swap, and I'm just delighted that you enjoyed. I was literally the last person to send. Hopefully you do understand why. I also made 3 others just in case I had to angel. So yeah...Thank you for your kind words. I'm hosting 2 die cut swaps. Check them out, if interested please join.
