About Me

I am a wife and the mother of three kids that are grown now. I work full-time as a medical transcriptionist. I enjoy crafting, reading, camping and spending time with family and friends. Some of my favorite times are spent crafting with my BFF and/or shopping for craft supplies! We make a yearly adventure of going to the scrapbook expo near us. I am a member of a card making club that meets monthly to make cards. I am a Christian and believe in God and in my Savior Jesus Christ. Although we all have different beliefs, I believe that we can respect each other and get along with each other.

I like songs from all music genres, but I would say my favorite is that awesome 80's music!

I enjoy reading. One of my favorite authors is Amy Harmon. If you haven't had a chance to read anything she has written, you are missing out and need to give her books a try!

The only movies I don't enjoy are horror movies; otherwise, I am up for a good movie!

I am a TV junkie! I have a favorite show for every day of the week and love to use my DVR! I usually craft while watching one of my shows!

My favorite craft is card making. I send most of my cards at Christmas and enjoy making and sending Christmas cards. I enjoy crafting and being creative. I like to try new techniques. My newest craft hobby is bookfolding which I have really enjoyed. It looks harder than it is, although it is time consuming. I also enjoy doing ATC's, inchies, altered Rolos/MemoryDex cards, and tags. Mixed media art and collage fascinate me, but I am still learning the process of letting go of the clean lines and having things "perfect" and just going with the flow and embracing the creative commotion!

Some of my favorite things are dragonflies, butterflies, hummingbirds, lady bugs, flowers, leaves, anything fall, snowflakes, anything winter/Christmas, steampunk, paisley, owls, peacocks, feathers, keys, lighthouses, fairies, gnomes, mushrooms and woodland animals like fox, deer, elk, moose, bear, hedgehogs, etc. I honestly don't have a favorite color and basically like them all equally. I love texture and like to touch things. Needless to say, I don't like signs that say, "Do Not Touch!" I love quotes and words!

Although I am a Christian, I would prefer not to receive images of crosses. I do not drink alcohol or coffee and would prefer not to have items with these themes. Also please do not send me crude or inappropriate things.

I basically have two hobbies ~ crafting and collecting things to craft with. I enjoy collecting everyday ephemera to upcycle/recycle to incorporate into my crafts such as stamps, packaging, junk mail, envelopes, pop cans, material from old clothing, lace, fibers, leather from old belts and purses especially if it has an embossed design, jewelry, watches, and cool tags off of things I have bought ~ I have even bought a shirt because I loved the tag that was on it so much! ;) lol

My favorite season is fall and I wish it would last longer. I just love the crisp fall air and beautiful fall colors, but who doesn't love a fresh snowfall in the winter, a spring rainstorm or a cool breeze on a hot summer day! There is something to enjoy every day!

EXTRAS: Although extras can be fun, please don't feel you need to include them to receive a heart. I would rather you take the "extra" time working on the swap for me than you taking time to look for "extras" to include with your swap!

I only push the sent button after I have dropped the swap off at the post office or the blue mailbox. If you do not receive a swap marked sent, it is lost in the mail. Please message me if this happens, and I will resend. Also please let me know if one of my swaps ever comes owing postage, so I can send you money to cover it. I don't always go inside the post office to have them weigh it because I have a scale and do my best to put adequate postage on, but I have noticed at my own post office different postal workers are more strict and require more postage than others.

I also have two USA only groups here on swap-bot if you would like to check them out to see if they interest you and to see if you meet the qualifications to join. They are:

Comment: WOW Michele - everything is awesome! I love it all. Yes the blue one is great. I didn't think to emboss on it. I embossed the paper with the folder then hit it with the ink. I love the embossing you did. And the extra butterflies are great too. What did you use to put the journal pages together? i like how sturdy they are. Thanks so much. Thanks for putting together such great swaps and always swapping with me.
Response: You are so sweet Debi! 😁Thank you for the kind words! I usually use recycled cereal/food boxes to make things more sturdy. Little Debbie snacks and my granola bars have white cardboard packaging that I use and that takes inking and stamping really well and I also use cereal and cracker boxes for the craft color cardboard. I’ve also used several layers glued together to make chipboard letters that turn out pretty cool, so basically I just use whatever I collect - lol. 🀣 Hope that helps. Happy crafting! See you in the swaps again soon! 😁

Comment: Thank you for your beautiful seashell card and tags. I have never seen one like it- is that a die with an embossing folder?
Response: I’m so glad you liked what I made for you. Yes, it is a die that has a matching embossing folder and it also has stamps to coordinate. They are from Stampin Up. Thank you for the heart. Happy crafting! 😁

Thank you for the incredible owl tag for the USA Mystery Supply swap. I absolutely love it. And the star stencil was a perfect fit for it.
