About Me

Firstly...I will never EVER flake! and I will always rate! If for some reason you don't receive,please, please, please contact me before rating! I thrive on being creative! In the past I have dabbled in pottery, weaving, paper making, jewelry, cross stitching, needle point, painting,sewing, smocking... etc. Even though I am lucky enough to have my own room devoted to sewing, and my art... I do spread all over the place. I am extremely Whimsical!

I have a very wonderful husband who puts up with me and my mess. We are proud empty nesters, proud parents of Lilly B, our rescue pup. Well, I'm proud and I think my husband just puts up with her. My life revolves around them both! I am an Interior Designer by degree. I have eight beautiful Grandchildren :) I keep a scrap book of my swaps with photo's and notes. I love going back through and seeing all the different things I have sent out and received. UPDATE i threw them all away when I moved last year and I regret it! Of course I love getting hearts but I love to give them as well. It is not necessary to send me extras to get a heart. Again,I do not flake! You bet I will reuse stamps when possible! :)

Favorite Crafts

Mixed Media, Quilting, embroidery, card making, applique.,,,..ATCs...Dotees. I am currently teaching myself to crochet... Like trying new things! I love watercolors and making Stuffies!

What I like

Anything Whimsy! ANGELS anything Nautical mice rabbits gnomes fairy's ephemera horses sheep foxes batiks Fairies Mermaids Bats

Dislikes

Please do not send me anything religious! I don't like drab, not into vintage fabrics. I'm not into dishonesty and people that are angry. I don't like not having a maid. I find flaker's and non-raters, one in the same... and both equally frustrating and extremely annoying!

Favorite Music

I Like all sorts of music Country, 70s rock. Poco, Spirit... I like James Blunt, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Zac Brown, Adele, Train, Maura O'Connel...Keith Urban, Jason Mraz, Maroon 5, Bruno Marrs, Celtic, Brandi Carlile

wish for

I wish I had a maid!. I wish I had a boat! I would live on the water! up date we bought a boat in 2018, lived on it for a year and did the American Great Loop! We sold the boat and now I wish we still had her as I would love to take her to Florida and live on her through the winter.

Comment: Beautiful & Creative!!! I'll read it asap when I get a chance!
Response: I am very happy that you felt my journal was beautiful and creative! I’m guessing, it was not what you were expecting. I thought I was signing up for an art journal and was too far in to change it up.So much time and effort was put into this swap. Hope your next year will be a better year for you!

Comment: Thanks for sending your starter art collab postcard. And don’t beat yourself up about the others you sent. I’ve made mistakes with Swap-Bot and will probably make more. Thanks for the tuck-ins in this swap and the first one.

Comment: Howdy! OMG! Thanks for the journal. I looked through and read the journal before I read your letter. I thought your oops was on purpose...lol. I enjoy seeing your creativity. There is an art journal swap here on swap-bot, however, I'm glad you committed to your journal choice. It reminded me of a journal I did one summer with various creation in which I used acrylic paint also. I can understand why your daughter wanted you to send it to her when you were finished with it. If you would like for me to send it to her then message me. I can just take photos of it for myself and send her the journal. There's nothing like having something that your parent or family member has created. Once again thanks so much for sharing your creativity with me.
Response: Thank you so much! I am really happy that you likes my journal! It is very sweet of you to offer to send it to my daughter. I will do one for her. It will be fun!
