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 30, with no grands in sight.

Hobbies...just about anything related to paper crafts, learning new crafting techniques and genres, painting with watercolors, rubber stamping, (I collect wood base stamps), making wax seals, beading, sewing on paper, taking pictures, journaling, playing with and collecting old/new fountain pens and ink, flower gardening (favorite garden flower is a geranium), thrifting, reading,(mystery/suspense) I’m currently reading my way through Patricia Cornwell- the Kay Scarpetta series. I love listening to music(country)…George Jones is still my favorite. TV & movies- I watch fictional or true crime mysteries, documentaries, PBS, some reality shows, film noir, and specific time period pieces. My favorite animated/comedy show is Bobs’ Burgers (Teddy cracks me up!) I enjoy listening to audio books & podcasts, and spending time with my pets...4 cats and 1 dog. (I lost my beagle, Sadie, September 8, 2022 and am heartbroken. She was so much company, I’m grateful for the 15 yrs I had with her) I love social media, esp. Pinterest, YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram. ***Come visit me on Instagram @h j.huebner…it doesn’t want to link.

Themes I like: Maggie Holmes, anything related to nature, botanicals, flowers/floral designs, bird art, all shades of pink, combining paper and fabric, hearts, dogs-esp. Beagles, Russian Blue cats, ( and all breeds of cats), animal lover in general, postage stamps, mail art, collage, reading/books/print, vintage inspired, lace trim, French Postal-script/icons, mason jars, 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, used postage stamps, old playing cards and postcards, paper die cuts, snippets of fabric, lace, embroidery, ribbon, or textiles such as tulle, jewelry findings, samples of stationery, vintage inspired images, memorabilia, tickets, Dutch themed graphics, tiny buttons, napkins for decoupage, charms, old book pages, ephemera for junk journals, hand made envies.

Comment: Thank you for the handstamped Valentine's card and goodies. I particularly like the glittery red hearts which you colored. Which pen did you use? The coverage is especially good. I should try my metallic pens. Happy swapping!
Response: Hi Joanne, So glad you enjoyed the stamped Valentine card and goodies. The only metallic/glitter pens I’m using right now came from DT, in a little variety pack of colors. Sometimes you get duds, but this must have been a good batch. Have a happy weekend❤️

Comment: What a gorgeous pocket with gingerpeople, I love it, tysm for all the goodies too ! I love the blue ink you used on your note too ♥
Response: I’m so happy that the Holiday Pocket made it to you before Christmas! Yay! This year I find myself crafting with the gingers, they have such a charming appeal. I’m a big fan of fountain pens and I’m crazy about ink. I’m not sure which pen I used to write your note. If the writing was turquoise, it could have been Kaweco Paradise Blue, Robert Oster Blue Denim, or Lamy Turquoise. Thank you very much for rating, your kind words and the ❤️. All the best to you in 2023!

Okay, first off, I didn't realize that you're from WI! Hello fellow cheesehead & go Pack! Second, OMG Holly!! I finally opened your tag flip mail today, and I have to say that it is, by far, the best thing I have ever received on Swap-Bot. It is BEAUTIFUL and so incredibly crafted. You have the magic touch. Thank you so much for making my day!

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!
