About Me

Hello from Wisconsin! We are known for beer & brats, cheese in every variety, the Green Bay Packers, the WI Badgers, country music festivals, WI Dells, farming, and Friday night fish fries. I live in a small town near the state line between WI and IL. I retired from teaching in 2014, after 33 years dedicated to students with special needs. In late summer of 2014, we got the devastating news that my DH of 28 yrs had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I lost him on Easter Sunday. To cope with the grief and loneliness, I renewed my love for crafting and it has been good therapy for me. I have a grown daughter, Heather, age 29, with no grands in sight.

Some of my favorite things are: Colors...all shades of pink and blue, green and yellow, gold and pink combined. Hobbies...paper crafting, learning new crafting techniques, beading, sewing, taking pictures, journaling, playing with old/new fountain pens and ink, gardening (favorite garden flower is a geranium), thrifting, reading,(mystery/suspense) listening to music(country) audio books, podcasts, and spending time with my pets...4 cats and 1 dog. I love social media, esp Pinterest, YouTube, and Instagram .

Themes I like: Maggie Holmes, anything related to botanicals, flowers/floral designs, bird art, combining paper and fabric, rainbows, hearts, dogs-esp. Beagles, Russian Blue cats, ( and all breeds of cats), animal lover in general, postage stamps, mail art, collage, camera graphics, reading/books/print, vintage inspired, lace trim, French Postal-script/icons, mason jars, cupcakes/sweets, butterflies, birds, (esp. hummingbirds, cardinals,and goldfinches) Tim Holtz style, baking/recipes, mixed media.

Things I'd Like to Receive: Items with a kitty, bird, butterfly or floral graphics, sequins, beads, used postage stamps, old playing cards and postcards, paper die cuts, snippets of fabric, lace, embroidery, ribbon, or textiles such as tulle, jewelry findings, wax seals, fun pens/stationery, vintage or vintage inspired images,memorabilia, tickets, graphics of windmills, Dutch boy & girl, unique buttons, paperclips,napkins for decoupage, charms, simple recipes, quotes, old book pages/ephemera for junk journals, positive/inspirational messages, handmade envies, book recommendations.

Don't need: I'm not a tea drinker, so you don't need to send tea bags in swaps.

Comment: Oh wow! You spoiled me! I love everything you sent! The card is cute along with the Happy Halloween die cut on shiny paper. I love the holographic envelope pouch! I love your embellishments too!! They are awesome! The layers are so cool and you’re very talented. You have some of that cool black and silver trim from Hobby Lobby. I need to find that. You have so many things on the embellishments that I’ve never seen before. I love the goodies too! You sent some amazing stuff! Thank you so much!

Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful swap! I really like the 3 bags you sent me - they are so pretty! Thank you also for the additional tags, sacks and paper. I love everything you sent me and can definitely use them in my projects. Thanks again for such a wonderful swap. You put a big smile on my face today!! :-)
Response: Hi Jane, Yay! It makes me very happy to hear that you are enjoying the altered glassine bags! It’s so much fun trying out new techniques, ( especially if it works😉) I wasn’t sure how it would adhere to the glassine surface, but I guess it turned out well. Thanks for the compliments, rating, and the ❤️😊

Comment: What a beautiful kit!! Thank you so much!! I love the variety and the little vintage style trucks are right up my alley!
Response: Hi Lesley, I'm so happy to hear that you are enjoying the Fall themed ATC kit. After I had the kit packaged, I was kind of doubting myself because I was thinking some things included might not fit the scale of an ATC. But I left it alone thinking you could use the things in any way you wanted. Glad I did. Happy fall crafting🍂

Comment: As always, you never disappoint me. What a lovely pocket filled with so many special goodies. You and I have the same style as I made the same style pocket for my partner. Your bag topper is so pretty! I have the card you made on my end table as my sunflower deco is out. Thank you for participating in so many of my swaps. I appreciate you so much. Love everything you sent!🌻
Response: Hi Karen, Ohhhh, you are so sweet and complimentary. I'm very happy that you liked the sunflower pocket and isn't it funny that we picked the same style? We are definitely thinking alike. It makes me feel so good to know you put something I made out with your seasonal decorations! You have great ideas for swaps😊

Comment: Amazingly beautiful. I will use it in my books as a bookmark. Thanks so much For the extras which indeed I can use. I didn’t mean for you to spend that much on postage either.❤️
Response: Hi Diana, Glad you liked the tag and will have a use for it. I could have used a long, business or manilla envelope, but my swaps are often “bumpy” and that’s why they have to be mailed as a package. I don’t mind that much to mail 1st class because it gives you tracking😊

Comment: Wow! Your packaging made me feel like I was opening a present ~ So creative and thoughtful! I love all the extras you added too ~ You made it "septeria" worthy for sure :) Thank you!! ~ Love, Karen
Response: Hi Karen, I was very happy to hear that you enjoyed the mini expandable pockets and the packaging I used. When I was following her directions I thought I missed something, because I was trying to figure out why it didn’t have an expandable pocket on the other side. 😊 Thanks for rating and the ❤️

I will rate you for the postage scavenger hunt swap when it arrives. My mail has been running slow the last couple weeks (sigh)

Mz Holly, I was your send to partner last March 2020, in the "Flowish Journal" swap. I recently came across the package you sent and I have to to tell you if I didn't already, how much I absolutely LOVE, LOVE the papers you sent me. The floral paper and vellum are so dang gorgeous!! I use them very sparingly! Thank you SO very much for being a gracious partner!!! ❤❤❤ Be well!
