About Me

I have just gotten home from the hospital, please give me some time to respond to emails, etc.. I know there are swaps that need to go out and that are behind but not intentionally. So hold your unruly comments please! I have lots to do here so I will get to everyone.

Thank you and please have a nice weekend!

Update 6/13/11 After thinking about this for a while, I decided to try my own swap group. I named it Happy Crafters USA Please check it out and become a member! We are looking for officers/coordinators too!

Update 6/11/11

I must say to all of my recent swappers......You guys are the bestest people in the whole world! I realize that's not a word, but my deepest expression!

Since I've found this place I've made lots of friends. I begin sewing in Jan/Feb this year and already made so many things while fine tuning my sewing and quilting skills! I also realize that knitting and crocheting is not a fit for me! I'd rather be at my sewing machine!! So I will be swapping with whom ever needs all this yarn and needles.

One other thing, I really love it when people just Out of the blue send Truffles something. He's my furry kid! Since my real ones grew up and not here any more.

I have a Singer Featherweight that also got in Jan. but I find it very difficult to make any quilts on that itty bitty thing. So I went and put a down payment on a Janome MC 6300 recently and can't wait to get it home now.

On the downside here. Some of you know about my mail situations. About 1/2 of the time my mail is delivered to a lady one street over. We became good friends! I get lots of other peoples mail too. I've had lots of things lost in the mail along those were some important documents. The Postal Service has gotten so bad that they even stick our mail in my in laws POB. This has been getting worse since Nov 2010. So if you do not get my swap, within a reasonable time, please let me know. I keep thinking it will get better....well it hasn't yet! With the high postal rates they should be on top of it!!I Word is that Canada is on a strike....I don't know.

So if you don't get my swaps, I'll gladly (with fingers crossed) re-send a swap!

I will do some more updating again next week. Until then....Are you Swap Happy?

Okay for the regular ~ Mumbo Jumbo ~

Just a happy married gal loves life and experiencing new things that involves sewing, crafting and making cool things from reporposed items, felt kitties, making clothes from patterns to t shirt painting.

Can spend hours shopping at JoAnn's, Michael's or Hancock craft store. Deals on CL.

Loves me little Truffles( kitty). He's 2 y/o, 1/2 Persian & 1/2 Himalayan, spoiled rotten and runs the house.

Trying new recipes and gardening. But most of all spending my time with family!

Love Football, a big fan of Green Bay packers and Minnesota Vikings!

Favorite Crafts

I have recently took up sewing mainly because I was given a machine and discovered I enjoy it so much that I went out and bought some fabric and patterns and wholla! I became Sew Magic! LOL

I am also dabbling in other crafts such as painting t shirts, got a flower loom to make flowers. Made some felt Valentine bags for my son's party.

I kinda like card making, but not scrapbooking. Not yet got the hang of knitting but still working at it.

I know some of us swappers are international and other times life just happens to get in the way. If this ever is the situation, please just let me know. I'm a patient gal when it comes to that.

I always rate! And I always send! I am human so if I do for get something, please don't hesitate to remind me.

I don't like giving bad ratings to anyone and I hate to ask "What Happened". But I feel that if I take the time to make something special for you then, you should feel the same way! Lets just have fun swapping and not spoil it for the others, because this is fun! And you just never know what your going to receive.


Your item(s) may be sent in a clean used bag, paper or box. b/c I believe in recycling when ever possible.

Hi I am back, missed all the wonderful swaps. Hope to be swapping with you soon. Love, MaryAnn maryannr1742

saturner on Jul 16, 2011:

wondering if you forgot about our private swap. since I sent message to you and you don't answer me. Your last access to the site it was on July/13. So I am very sure you read my messages. also You received my swap and didn't rate me.

So what's up? Can you tell me what is going on? The due date of our swap you changed for one week later and there still showing you did not send.



madcrazy on Jul 6, 2011:

Hi! Sorry, I posted my favorite colors on the swap sign-up page, but they're not on my profile. Blues and greens are my faves, but I love all colors, as well as neutrals. Thanks for asking, and I look forward to swapping with you. Kathy (madcrazy)
