About Me


I love to scrapbook and make cards. I try to craft every day! I am always surfing blogs looking for inspiration. I love ATCs, Smash Books and am just starting to dip my hat into mixed media with canvases, tags etc..

I am a SAHM to Riley (July 4/09) and also work full time for Goodwill. I enjoy traveling, country music, movies and have a serious Diet Coke addiction.

Favorite Crafts

I love large images from various companies that I can color with my copics and use for my cards. I enjoy using my Cuttlebug and my cricut to design with. Some of my fave companies are Echo Park, Doodlebug, PhotoPlay Paper, and Bella Blvd. I am a big Tim Holtz fan as well. I am a big fan of the 6x6 paper packs. I also love using diecuts, washi and stamped images on my cards. I'm just starting to dabble in mixed media, so I like playing around with gelattos, sprays, inks, and the like. I use anything in terms of embellishments although I am not a big fan of glitter. I pretty much scrap with any kind of color so that is never an issue.

Things I'd like to receive

Some of the things I like are:

6x6 Patterned papers


vintage button

vintage embellishments

stamped images to color


die cuts for cards

shaped or large brads

old book pages for mixed media use

Christmas embellishments

anything Tim Holtz

embossing folders (or embossed pieces of cardstock for cardmaking)


ATC images

Non craft related:

chocolate (except liquor filled) my favorite is Quality Street

anything Mr. Bean

fruity teas

hot chocolate


Flavored M&Ms

Quotes/sayings for my inspiration board

Favorite Television

I love CSI (all three), Criminal Minds, Supernatural, Hawaii 5-0, Arrow and Arrowverse shows, Castle, Grimm, Chicago Fire/PD/Med , The Flash, Dr. Who, crime shows like Prodigal Son, Evil etc.. I love to collect Funkos from my favorite shows. Right now I just have Arrow, Speedy and Dean but I hope to extend that collection!

Things I don't really care for

Stickers (unless they are 3D or something that would work well in my smash book) Eyelets small brads any sport related embellishments floral scented candles chocolates with liquor playing cards postcards keychains scraps recipes

The Written Word

For many years I had kept a journal and after finding them again, I realized how much I missed writing. Not anything fancy or novel-esque, but just writing because I felt like it. Sometimes journal entries, sometimes short stories, sometimes just a few lines here and there. I love round robin stories! Passing it around to people, and seeing how a few lines takes a story into a whole different direction than what you could have ever thought possible....


I love fruity teas! No so much the basics like earl grey, chamomile or orange pekoe....I would love to try one of your favorites or something that is from your country! :)

Favorite Books

I love romance novels and my favorite authors are Julia Quinn, Ella Quinn, Jude Deveraux, Catherine Coulter, Sophia Nash.

I also enjoy Nora Roberts trilogies, Sherrilyn Kenyon, JR Ward.

Favorite Movies

I am a really huge movie fan and I am partial to romcoms and 80s movies. I also love SciFi. The only thing I don't really watch are horror/slasher.

Comment: Cute! Thanks for the shaped paperclips and dots!
Response: I literally mailed that yesterday! That was fast! Glad u liked it.
Comment: Hi Tammy! I very much enjoyed your letter and so agree that we maybe didn't realize how much we needed our friends until we were cut off from them, and don't get me started on not being able to travel - sigh! Things are opening here for inside dining as long as you wear a mask until you are seated - hopefully you will see your gal pals for supper club sooner than later! Thank you also for the fun pcs! I always love pcs, so that also made my day! Wishing you all the best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Hello, Tammy! For the swap "What Book are you reading?", I am currently reading "Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone" by Brene Brown. It is a quite wonderful book about the importance and power of belonging to yourself. She's a great author and I would highly recommend anything by her! Bonus: I'm listening to "Anansi Boys" by Neil Gaiman and it is fabulous! Amanda

mysmashbooklife on Feb 8, 2020:

Hi! This is for the swap: What Book are you reading?

I am reading Dirty Girls by Lily white. I read a lot of dark romance and this author writes a lot of those books.

Have a nice day.

Success! Thanks to the quick reply of our swap leader!


postmansdaughter on Feb 3, 2020:

Really not sure why, but I'm having a horrible time finding images that will actually show up in comments! I'm not flaking, but begging for a little grace on your carrot cake photos, sorry, I'm pretty new to profile deco & had no idea I'd have such a struggle!
