About Me

My life thus far... I am an eclectic soul with much love for my family and unending love for my daughter who was diagnosed on the Autism spectrum at an early age. I support those with disabilities and the desire for our society to be more accepting of their conditions. Human behavior intrigues me and I enjoy learning new techniques and curriculum in the education field.

I am extremely dedicated to friends, family, paper crafts, and my faith.

I have one fur baby. We are in heaven with our sweet Oreo, who is a bischonpoo. She’s extremely loving with a bit of sass.


My current craft trends are junk, collage art, and flow journals. I recently learned about handmade book binding using the Coptic technique and pamphlet stitch. I also know how to use wires, sewing, saddle stitching, perfect binding and the screw post method.

I’m addicted to flow and junk journals and seeking swap partners. Please send me a PM if interested.

I love Disney at Christmas and my birthday's which are my usual times I visit. Next year it will be Halloween and aiming to reserve for Tokyo. Eeeek!

One of my fave places to go to is New Orleans because I adore Cajun food and listening to Jazz.

Also a beach lover! Turks and Caicos, Aruba, Destin, and Pinel Island are a few of my faves. The feel of sand on my toes is heaven!

Music is a huge range from 80's, Broadway, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Alternative, Indie, holiday, Christian, gospel, and Blues.

Favorite Television: Taskmaster, Hacks, Trying, Rebel,Younger, baking shows, and YouTube for my Junk Journal inspiration.

Books: I read fiction and non fiction.

I bought an espresso machine because I hate weak coffee. Bye-bye Keurig!

I pledge to rate!

I strive to rate my swaps and hope those receiving mine will too! I always send my swaps on time and enjoy sending happy mail all over the world. If you would like a private swap, please PM me. :)

Also, my motto is be nice or just don’t swap.

I love to read my partners profiles and discover about them when I send a swap. I take pride in what I send out. If for some reason you don’t receive from me, please let me know and I will resend. Case in point... I recently had a swap from last year finally arrive in July. Crazy!


Comment: Another amazing swap!! So glad to get partnered up with you again. I can't even decide which bits are my favourites... the tiny tickets, the metallic seals, the ledger page? No, the receipts from the 40s. Or the air mail envelope! I can't decide. I just know that I loooooove the goodies you sent me and I can't wait to add these into my next book project. Thanks so much, Amy!!

Comment: I forgot to thank you for the extras you included. I loved both of them. The purple stationery and envelope really made me smile!! Hi Amy!! Wasn't this swap something?! There were something like 68 people participating. I think that's terrific. I enjoyed reading the things you are thankful for. It is amazing how similar our personal thankfulness is.

Comment: Got my wonderful and amazing package from you today! The black cat literally jumped out when I opened the package! The owl card is really cool! And since the brown bag one wasn't numbered and you pretty much told me what it was-had to open that-Love It! I am really into making junk journals themed and otherwise now so was thrilled to get this Halloween one! Such a wonderful variety of papers-going to be soooo much fun to use! The packages look so delightful-can't wait until October 19th! Thanks for sending me this swap And HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

1koolkrafter rated for YTPC: Junk Journal - US Only on Sep 14, 2021
Comment: Amy…the journal that you made for me is simply beautiful! I love the simplistic and clean way in which you put it together. I simply love it!!! Thank you so much!!! Oh…and the mushroom charm is my absolute favorite part…lol…🤗
Comment: Hi, Amy! Thank you so much for the gorgeous page pockets! They brought so much joy to my day. You mentioned that you struggled with using the vintage paper. I've experienced that too - I want to craft with them, but they crack or tear if I try to fold them. So finicky! But you did such a beautiful job. I'd give you more hearts if I could!

Comment: Hi Amy, I like your style of sewing and layering the Fall ephemera. Thank you for the quote postcards and Marianne stamps of France. I am always looking for more of that series and historical facts about her!
Comment: Hey, Amy! Thank you so much for the envelope journal and all the ephemera. It was all so beautiful and I'm very excited to use it in my journals.
