My Swaps and About Me

Pretty disappointed with Swap Bot people as of late. So many swaps have come postage due. Quality of some of the swaps I have received have been disappointing. Not art - I wouldn't be critical of someone's art, but package swaps. Got flaked on a craft de-stash swap! The coordinator couldn't angel. Because of this, I will be backing off swapping for a bit before I completely quit, Maybe I will do a few card or ATC swaps. PLEASE check postage requirements to mail so that your partner doesn't need to pay for your swap! I spend a lot on postage to mail my swaps, I shouldn't have to pay to mail your swaps too!

Going forward, I will NOT be picking up postage due packages at the PO. If they don't come on time, I will rate a 1 until the package arrives with correct postage.

I have met some great swappers here! You know who you are! I appreciate you and hope to swap with you again!

If you are interested in a quality private swaps....contact me!

I am wife and mother living in the Midwest...just north of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Home of The Colts, Indy 500, the Pacers, Indiana University, Purdue and Notre Dame and Drum Corps International.

I own my own business as an HR Consultant. I have worked in Human Resources for over 25 years and am having a ball on my own. I am a Christian and am active in a great church.

We have the cutest little dog named Jasper. He is a clear red dachshund.... Did I mention he is cute?

I am originally from Pittsburgh and am a huge Steeler fan...

My favorite new non-crafting pastime is Pinterest! I love to thrift/antique shop and scrounge around for a good deal! Years of "good deals" has me now figuring out how to "destash"!

I love to craft and swap! I am just joining here, so am excited to meet some swappers and some who allow newbies! Hey, we all had to start somewhere! I don't flake and I try my best to do my best art for others. My things will be from a non-smoking home and prefer the same.

Please contact me if something doesn't arrive or if you are not happy with something I send. I will make it right! I try to put extra effort into each swap I send because, frankly, you are worth it!

Favorite Crafts

I have always crafted. I like most anything. My passions include Rubber Stamping, Papercrafts, Scrapbooking, Journals. Tags, ATC's Mixed Media, Tim Holtz, Vintage, Jewelry, Crocheting, and anything fun and interesting. I love collage, shabby,vintage, altered things, Remains of the Day type journals, boxes, handmade flowers.....love upcycled items. I am wanting to make a Tim Holtz Configurations Box and am looking for some little vintage treasures for it. Toys, Christmas, Misc. See:http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?advprop=image&fr=yfp-t-900-s&va=tim+holtz+configurations

Really appreciate anything hand made.

Favorite Television

I don't watch a lot to TV, but I record The Biggest Loser, Parenthood, Chicago Fire, and Dr. Phil (forgive me!). I also like CSI and occasionally American Idol and Big Bang Theory. HGTV and Food Channel is always good.

Love the colors purple, teal or turquoise, and most shades of blue...especially when mixed. Also love oranges and reds. Love most colors with white, black or Kraft.

Would LOVE to get some crinkly seam binding ribbons!

Handmade flowers-I love crocheted flowers, paper flowers, fabric flowers, metal flowers...you get the picture!

Love old vintage photos; especially those that want to tell story. Would treasure old handwritten letters, report cards, autograph book, journals, diaries, etc. Anything personal. I think these all tell stories.... Love them!

Music themed scrapbook items, especially marching. Dog themed ...

Love crowns, hearts, keys, owls, bling, glitter or sparkly anything, matching scrapbook papers and embellishments, love shabby, vintage and Tim Holtz style designs.

Candles, coffee, kcups, and most anything chocolate, pretty tissue paper, pretty note cards ( handmade or store bought),

Love handmade jewelry...esp. bracelets. Love cool charms for an eclectic charm bracelet I am working on.

Love Bath and Body Works stuff

I would love to take your Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons!

Batman stuff for my son... (he's 23, who knew?)

My husband sells wine... let me know if you need wine corks!


I am not in to dark, scary, horror, horoscopes, witchcraft, (but I like Halloween stuff).

Don't like kiddie, cute or cartoony themes. Not into Hello Kitty or My Litttle Pony, Kawaii or Lisa Frank. I won't judge you if you do ! :)

Not much for stickers unless they are Jolees or Martha Stewart or other similar types.

Rarely like Neon colors.

Love candy and treats, but I have braces on for a few months so I can't have anything gummy, sticky, nutty or hard. It stinks because my favorite candy is Swedish Fish and Bullseyes. Chocolates without nuts are always good!!!!

Love to rummage through your things! I am happy to pass on to others things that aren't my style... thanks!

Favorite Books

So, I just started reading James Patterson - Women's Murder Club Series and Michael Bennett. I need 1-10 and 12 when it comes out and I have only read I, Michael Bennett. Would love some more!

About Swapping

I always will send my swap... if you don't get something, please let me know. I will be happy to resend. If I miss the mark on something, just tell me that too, and I will fix it. I will do the same for you!

I understand about life... things happen. Just let me know and I am sure we can work something out. Just communicate.. I hope you will do the same for me.

Let's all be kind to one another, people! We have to live together on this earth, we might as well make it pleasant! I am not at all into drama. Life's too short!! Happy Swapping!
