About Me

I am New to online swapping, but I have been envolved in Handmade swaps for years. I want something new and fun to do in my spare time (as minimal as it is). I have found ATCs to be very theraputic, and not stressful, they actually get me in a creative mood, which I thought I had lost for a very long time. I am married to my best friend of 15 years and have three beautiful girls 13, 7, & 4. For my 12 hour a day job I own and operate a Gorumet Coffee Shop/hobby store. I work extremely long hours, but I try to keep a bag of goodies at work to keep my brain busy while I'm not busy making coffee. I just recently added a scrapbooking/papercrafting section, and now have even less time than ever!

Favorite Music

I like a little bit of everything. My Ipod is loaded with a little bit of everything, except heavy stuff.

Favorite Books

TWILIGHT!!!! I love all of the books, but I must say that Eclipse is my favorite! Craft Books, and How to Books, I also enjoy Nicholas Sparks, I'm pretty open to read anything, so if you have any suggestions....

Favorite Movies

I LOVE MOVIES.!!! Tough to narrow it down, so here are a few of my Fav's. TWILIGHT, & NEW MOON & ECLIPSE...... It was AWESOME (totally addicted)!!!! Eclipse was my favorite book & now movie!!!!!

Other movies I love:The Notebook, Under The Tuscan Sun, Made of Honor, Good Luck Chuck, The Wedding Date, Hairspray (both of them rock!!), Stick it, Must Love Dogs, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Sweet Home Alabama, Broken Bridges, Pretty Woman... And the list goes on.... I LOVE MOVIES, I'm a Movie Guru!

Favorite Crafts

Paper crafts are my favorite. I have recently discovered ATCs and really enjoy them. I love Scrapbooking, but sometimes find it very intimidating. Handmade greeting cards are another favorite., sewing, eventhough I'm not the greatest at it, I love to do it. decopage, Crochet(scarfs & potholders only), Jewelry making !!!!

Some of my Favorite Things

I am very versitile in my likes. I craft according to my mood. I love lime green(total fav),pink & brown combo, bright fun colors, earthy tones, stripes, pokadots, scrapbook paper, rubberstamps, fibers, sparkly things like jeweled brads.I have 3 girls, so any girly girl stuff is always great,no boy stuff for me. Pretty things & Sparkley things make me smile ;)


The only thing I'm really not into is dark things like witches, snakes(petrified of them), spiders, devilish things. I am ok with mythical things like unicorns, fairy tales, fairies (girls...remember), princess' etc.. I like happy things!!!

I love learning new techniques for using products I alrady own. I love my cricut & sixxiz Machines.Anyone ever wanting to get rid of dies or cartriges should contact me, to work out a swap. I love my computer, I can't go more than a day without it. I love my bind it all machine,& my your story machine. I just wish there were more products here to give me inspiration! (this is why I had to make a space in my store for crafts. LOL!

I love chocolate, hot cocoa, tea(except green), and I really love coffee (I own a coffee shop). My weakness' are Cupcakes & Potato Chips with dip. I have a sweet tooth, and my body is starting to reflect my love of food altogether :(

All in all I pretty much like whatever. Like I said I craft to my mood. I have many moods...after all I am a woman... I have the right to change my mind whenever & for whatever I want with no explanation.

Wish List

I live in a very small town and my acess to new supplies is limited, so here are a few things that I would love to get! - Eyelets (I love them) -chipboard things -jeweled brads -fun brads -metal charms -epoxy stickers -shrink plastic -fibers -beads -fabrics -special papers -ANY SCRAPBOOKING SUPPLIES!!! -rubber stamps -EMBELISHMENTS (no one around here sells any!!) -I love stamps -whale of a punch size punches -fun fur yarn -charms -atc miscellaneous supplies -mini canvas -any nice papers -mullbury paper

Pet Peeves

People that don't rate!

It seems to me that I have sent alot of swapt that I have not been rated on! I always rate my partners, and expect that everyone using this site do the same. (now I understand that life happens, and we can't get to our computers everyday, but please....)

FLAKERS: I have apparently been flaked on for the following swaps.

bizzles rated for Twilight Favorite Scene ATC on Aug 10, 2010
Comment: Thankyou for the beautiful atc! I agree, the tree scene is also one of my favorite! I think my all time fave scene from Twilight is when they are both squatting by the water and you can see the river and mountains in the background (Bella has her yellow jacket and right before Edward pounces onto the rock...)
Response: Oh yes, I love thatpart too. But there is something about that tree scene that makes my heart skip a beat. I grew up in that area, and I think it reminds me of home just a bit.
Comment: thanks for the awesome atcs! I really liked the Volturi symbol! Thanks for all the extra goodies too! I love them! (I hope you have gotten over your crafting slump?)
Response: Thanks, I tried to keep them simple, yet have a royal/no nosense feel to them. I think they ty=urned out rather nicely.
