About Me


I am a mom of an adorable little rescued shih-tzu named Madeline (Maddie for short), a Maltese/Pomeranian named Teddy and an American Eskimo/Pomeranian named Mya. My son is grown and I love all of my kids including my fur babies! I'm pretty easy going and I LOVE getting packages in the mail! I do have pets, though I try very hard to keep them away from my projects but be aware that some animal fur may get into your package! I am not allergic to anything (That I know of) so no worries on that end for me.

****I draw, paint, sew, papercraft, junk journal and dabble in knitting. I put a lot of time and thought into the things that I send and I appreciate the same in return. I always view my partner's profile before making something to try to make them something they would like.****

If you do not receive an item from me and you were supposed to, please let me know! I always send on time and usually early, so if it didn't make it there I will resend if you let me know :)

I'm sure there will be more as I go along, but that's a start!

  1. Shiny/sparkly things
  2. Books, I'm always reading
  3. Video Games
  4. Office supplies...sort of a weird obsession, I love pens and stationary.

Things I Dislike

  1. Kitsch-I know some people think it's really cool but I just don't dig it.
  2. Big jewelry-I'm more of a less is more kinda girl, diamond stud earrings are about as crazy as I get.
  3. Orange- I don't know why, but this color just rubs me the wrong way.
  4. Bittersweet chocolate
  5. No religious items please unless the swap I sign up for is specific to that.

Wish List

Things I would like...

*Patterened paper or cardstock for making cards or ATCs.
*Diecuts. I don't really like cutesy stuff, but butterflies, hummingbirds, dragonflies, flowers, boarders or tags...any of these things would be awesome!
*Steampunk embellishments and things that I could use to create steampunk items. Metal bits, springs, washers, foam that looks like any of those things that I could paint to look like metal.
*Ephemera I am getting into doing altered books and I am sorely lacking images. *"Magic" Themed items. I want to make a new journal and I'm on the lookout for some items for it. (Can be magical creatures, "magical" sparkles, pictures/diecuts of different neat looking bottles, etc.)

Comment: I love them all! Thank you.
Response: I'm so glad :)
Comment: Hi Joanne and thank you for the wonderful coordinating journal cards! The work so well together and you chose really lovely images for these. They will work quite nicely in my junk journal - the thickness of the base won't be a problem in the least! Thanks for a fun swap!
Response: I'm so glad they aren't too thick. I was a little concerned about that! Happy journaling :)

Comment: Love your ATC and the quote. You just never know what others are dealing with. Thank you.

MellowOda rated for LSRUS Everybody Loves Amazon on Aug 20, 2021
Comment: Thank you so much for the TH brushes & tiny ephemera. I've been using a small paintbrush (from an art set) and it would take SO LONG to seal my ATCs, but these will help make that process so much faster & the application smoother. A lot of people don't like those tiny accent pieces, but there are so good for ATCs & Postcards (especially the collab ones)! Thank you for choosing these great items!
Response: You're very welcome!

Response: I very much liked that size of project! Gave a little more room than an ATC :)

Excellent choice on the ruffle journaling card! I was so conflicted. :)

I pick up gift cards - Starbucks the grocery store, Trader Joe's, REI, Target, .... for sending washi tape samples. They will up your card wrapping skills because they are stiff!
