About Me

I am 43 years old and have a wonderful 21 year old son. I LOVE my full time job as a substance use disorder nurse.

On Oct.8, 2023 my cat, Trixie, crossed the rainbow bridge. I am left with no animals at this time. In the future...maybe...just might be some time before I am ready.

Check out my Etsy store: ThreadsandGlue. Clickable link at the top of my profile. I sell quilts and bags mostly with the occasional odd item.

Favorite Crafts

  • sewing (quilts, bags, mug rugs, key fobs, etc)
  • watercoloring, making envelopes, ATC and memorydex cards, greeting cards

As for my quilting style: I like more modern and tend to gravitate towards colors other than pastels. I don't dislike pastels though. I am a very generous rater so if you are my quilt swap partner please just have fun in your process of quilting. Don't stress about whether or not I will like it. To me that takes out all of the fun in why we are quilting in the first place!






What I expect from SwapBot

I am hoping to connect with people from all over. I love learning about people and different ways of living other than my own. It is so much fun to receive happy mail, but without the people/stories behind it there wouldn't be as much joy and connection! Swapping should be fun and without stress, no drama, just loving, positive people trying to connect and grow!



My favorite things to receive are:

homemade items of ANY kind - sewn, crochet, knit, paper, written stories, poetry, drawings, etc.... I will always leave good feedback if you put effort in it and send it on time. I don't rate down if it isn't in my taste. I just pass it along to someone who I know would like it. I am very appreciative of anything I receive and get way more pleasure preparing and sending to you!

Likes (not limited to):

  • green (all shades) - I also really like coral, navy, purple
  • animals (except snakes and scorpions)
  • dinosaurs
  • environmentally friendly/upcycling/re-using
  • no allergies to foods (love getting your local taste/snacks). Prefer salty over sweet, but not opposed to either
  • anything 80's early 90's cartoons
  • Marvel comics (or DC - Marvel just tends to be more of a favorite of mine)
  • video game related stuff
  • Fabrics - modern themes/colors
  • stamped images on watercolor paper that I can watercolor and use in other projects
  • stamped images on white cardstock that I can use alcohol inks on
  • I do like stationary for writing penpal letters
  • I love homemade watercolors or watercoloring supplies.
  • crochet or knit dishcloths, homemade swiffer pads
  • homemade stuffies or homemade dolls or animals.
  • locally roasted coffee beans
  • tea - but only black or cinnamon. I LOVE cinnamon. I do not like fruity ones.
  • Nylon or Cotton webbing that I can use for purse handles


Don't feel like you need to include "extras". Honestly, the little bits can get overwhelming in my small space. Hearts are given because of effort or simply because I love it oh so much!

  • I don't have any allergies or sensitivities really but I don't like things that smell of cigarette smoke
  • I don't wear makeup or jewelry or perfume.
  • No paper scraps please (stamped images on paper mentioned under likes is okay)

I am still in such surprise and awe that you sent this beautiful quilt to my Mom. I have to tell you, she recently had to part with a quilt she has had for 20+ years, we kept a portion of it, but it was very loved and worn out. She loves this quilt, I am not sure I could ever thank you enough for your generosity!
