About Me and My Likes

I am a bookkeeper by day and a crafter by night. Crafts made from textiles is my first love. My sewing machine is never used for traditional sewing...I like to sew items to paper for a unique look.

I have two teenage children, three dogs, wonderful parents, and I am blessed with a fabulous job.

I love thrift stores, garage sales, & estate sales.

Several years ago I started my Etsy store. The experience has been wonderful and many of my customers are also friends. The best of all worlds.

*I appreciate all gifts and have gotten wonderful items.

  • Things I do NOT LIKE:
  • Foam Cutouts
  • Nothing Modern or Way Out There
  • Anime
    • No Super Heros - Marvel, etc

Dreaming of Mountains

I live in the suburbs of Houston, TX, and dream of moving to the mountains. I will always research where my swap-bot partner lives. It is nice to mentally escape my surroundings. I have lived in the Houston area all of my life.

Comment: Thank you for the Instant Rice card. I love the Smile sticker you put on it. Actually there is a lot of good new country music out there. I watch the Circle network and it helps me get to see some of the newer singers as well as the older ones.

Comment: Hi Cindy. Naturally, since I contacted you yesterday, the pc came today! Should have contacted you earlier - lol 😆 Sadly, your card got wet..the ink ran..what was the last sentence? I got this "...window unit in my bedroom is a must... absolutely love.....bath w/...ass of water...cool, Cindy." Don't you hate it when that happens?? No need to redo swap...just let me know what you said!! 🙂🙂🙂🙂 Happy swapping ! 💚

Comment: First off I absolutely LOVE what you sent! Secondly, I’m sorry to hear about your boss…that sucks. And lastly, when you send a bulky item like that you need to take it to the post office…it owed postage and the envelope was almost destroyed. But anyway, thank you for such fun stuff!
Response: So sorry!!! I will do better next time. Glad you got the package.
