About Music

I love to listen to Gospel Singing music and also enjoy Classical Music very much!! Music makes my heart happy!! I also enjoy the Christmas music on CDs!!

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking is one of my favorite crafts! I like to create pages and tell the story. Planning is another one of my favorites to do, write down dates, tasks, add pictures, stickers and embellish the pages the way it makes me feel accomplished and good about myself. Art is always in fashion in my book! There are many other crafts I like to do and have fun with.

Making journals, any kind, love homemade anything.learning!! I am collecting items, embellishments and all kind of ephemera so I can have fun with this craft!!

I enjoy stationary, beautifully decorated, cards, post cards, specialty made items for planning or scrapbooking, Tim Holtz products and anything related to art!!

I would also like to try at Mixed Media and maybe painting and watercolors. I used to paint when I was younger but not recently.


I enjoy doing swaps in other groups and mailing letters and packages, because I know it will brighten someone's mailbox and bring them little happiness on a gloomy day!! I like to make my own envelopes and it's a lot of fun!!

I do like to mention that I don't like receiving little bits of scraps papers, or stickers, cut up or things that I won't be using. I do appreciate the swaps but I've been getting a lot of tiny little scraps, like small labels, some things look old and not usable even. I always try to send nice things in my swaps and still some people don't like my swaps!

Things I enjoy and collect

I enjoy lots of different fun things that come my way! Scrapbook papers, embelishments, and everything that has to do with this craft! Love paper pads!!

Stickers are very welcome, I like all different kinds of stickers, hearts, owls, flowers, seasons, inspirational, fun stickers, cute stickers, nature, bright ones, 3D ones and all kinds of others, too many to mention. When I send out happy mail I also like to decorate my envelopes, usually with stickers and washi!

Embellishments are my favorite items to have and to swap!! I like all kinds of embellishments!

I love making pocket letters these days so I really like small cards, cute printed papers, small bows, anything that goes into the little pockets. Love beautiful coloring books!! Markers are really fun to have, especially the good quality, brush markers.

I love any kind of pens, cute pens, fun pens, good writing pens, PenGems, Markers to color and to write, brush markers also and just any color pens!!

Shabby Chic is one of my favorites and Victorian or Vintage team. Love Victorian girls, stamped, stamps or coloring.

I would love to collect postage stamps and postcards from other countries, states, new or old, used or not!!

Favorite colors, I like all colors but my favorites are purples, pinks, blues, greens, reds....

I love rubber stamps!! I especially enjoy the planner girls, any kind of girls, I like the clear stamps more than the rubber ones, though!! I love birds, hearts, owls, butterflies any kind of sayings, nature, any fun stamps... Words stamps are a plus!!

Papers of any kind are appreciate it!! I like double sided papers a lot!! Happy papers, cute scenery, hearts, birds, nature, bright, actually all kinds....

I've been looking for Maggie Holmes items lately, I love using these to make flip books, tags, binders and all different projects.

I do like owls, birds, foxes, pandas, white bears.....

Love ATC's, I have so much fun swapping these with others.

I love homemade tags with embellishments!!

I love surprises, those are the best!!!

About Me

I am a mother of 5 boys and live in a beautiful country setting area, very quiet and full of lush landscaping around neighborhood! I enjoy the birds that are always singing, we have about 3 white owls around our house coming out at night!!

I love swapping with others and don't mind if they are postmarked one day late!! I usually like to send my swaps on time, I do not like to be late, unless there's something major happening, then I will get in touch with the swapper to let them know. I am very dependable and try my best to make a good swap!!

Things I like and dislike

I use all natural, healthy and green products for myself and my family. We try to stay healthy and eat better foods with healthier ingredients. I do not like to use any chemicals in our house. I like to use my essential oils and we also use some of the healthy supplements to help our bodies stay happy. I do enjoy the healthy candles as gifts, as long as they are not full of chemicals.

Tea I love herbal tea of any kind especially the very healthy ones. You can send me any herbal tea, flavored, fruit, green....

I do not use any lotions or perfumes from grocery stores, or malls, I only use the ones with no chemicals and free of any strong scents, only those that contain essential oils, like lavender or peppermint. I love healthy spa items from health food stores including eye masks, warm socks, herbal pillows for neck or shoulder pain, nail accessories etc..

I do not need any sweets, like chocolate or candy, if I do receive it I like to pass them on, sharing with others.

I do not like any Halloween stuff, stickers, or anything related. Please don't send me any of this kind of stuff!!

Comment: I recently watched a video on how to make placemats. I watched it several times, and then I had to go step-by-step, pausing it each time as I went through the steps. It was invaluable!
Response: I actually do the same thing when they go too fast!!! I thought I was the only one!!

Thank you for always being a great swap buddy and spreading joy. keep sparkling my friend.

image Hello Ida, This is a great day! I'm going to be glad in it! The sun may come out, or not, Makes me no never mind. My rocking chair on my porch I will find. The birds will chirp their hello to me front across the neighborhood. That first sip of my coffe...aaah! Life is good & I am thankful for it. I hear a dog barking from across the way. I will dream of hearing the ocean waves crash to shore when I close my eyes. Then the duties of the day come crashing in. A lawn mower starts up and the illusion slips away. What's for supper tonight? Do I have appointments? Do I need a pedi? Do my windows really need to be cleaned? It was good while it lasted, but what really matters is my rocker is sitting there waiting for me any time I have a minute free. Stop to take a minute today, go to your quiet place, breathe in, breathe out, just be🌻

Hi there, so nice to meet you in this swap. I love swapbot, you get to meet all kinds of people from all over the world. I live in a country area too. I did not grow up here but always dreamed of it so first thing after getting married we got horses and moved to the country...my parents thought I had gone crazy. lol. Have you been getting to do much crafting so far this spring? I love it, keeps me sane. Have a great week
