Favorite Crafts

I started out scrapbooking in my early 20's then moved to cardmaking since it required way less organization of my many boxes of photos.. LOL. I fell in love with the cardmaking & other paper crafts and am amazed at all of the different tools, dies, stamps and machines that are available. I have a Gemini, Cricut, lots of stickers, fair amt of dies & small amt of stamps...it seems like forever to get a good stock built up. I teach a monthly craft class with a good friend of mine at our local library and love passing on our love of crafts to everyone and anyone who wants to join us.

Favorite Television

Since I was a sickly kid, I fell in love with TV at a young age and still love it and use it as a tool to relax while crafting. I love true crime shows, thrillers, fantasy shows like Game Of Thrones and Vampire Diaries, Hilarious shows like Friends and Carol Burnette and some of popular network programing like Dancing with the Stars.

About Me

I am a mother of 1 adult son and 1 beautiful 12yr old granddaughter who is my favorite craft buddy. We live in the country, in WV, and have horses, dogs and cats. As far as favorites go I would say favorite color is most all shades of blue, especially deep ocean blue and teals. I love all animals but would have to say my favorite animal would be horses or dogs. I love to watch tv, read and especially craft. Since joining swapbot I am now addicted to all kinds of papercrafting, making ATC's, little albums, cardstock purses, small 3 x5 cards...anything you can make with cardstock is fun for me. I LOVE using die cuts and stickers & all embellishments that I can get my hands on. I don't sticker slap, I do painting, inking...or some other technique then use some stickers or die cuts to put finishing touches on. I love anything historical, especially ancient Egypt or Rome. I am fascinated by the paranormal and enjoy all the ghost hunting or haunting shows on TV, my husband teases me about it since he is a non believer. LOL.

Favorite Crafts

I would say my FAVORITE craft item to use is double sided paper and cardstock!!, die cuts, nice stickers, metal embellishments, handmade embelllishments and any adorable embellishment that can be added to my paper crafts. As far as my favorite things to receive in a swap I would have to say is double sided paper and cardstock, metal embellishmenst, handmade embellishmensts, die cuts, pieces of neat card stock to use in layering, nice stickers (especially puffy or 3D type stickers), animal stickers, and other small embellishments...anything I can use in cardmaking, paper crafts & decorating envelopes for my swaps. I am restarting my foreign banknote & coin collection so if you are international and interested in a swap like that let me know. I am not picky.If we are swapping please please please label the foreign banknotes & coins since I do not have a book or reference to figure it out...pretty new to collecting them. I am so enjoying this swap bot experience and getting to meet other people that love their crafting as much as I do.

About Me

Something I want you to know is that I send out my swaps as soon as I get my swap partners so if you do not receive a swap from me it has to be a boo-boo during the postal experience because I would not flake on you. I live in a small town with a very small-town post office that closes at noon so sometimes things are post stamped a couple days after I put them out, I am sorry but there is no way I can fix that. When I put my trade in the mailbox, I mark it as sent so please be understanding if you are one that looks at postal stamps. If you do not receive something by close to end of the swap date (unless you are overseas bc that would require extra time) please contact me so I can get you a replacement in the mail asap. Thanks a bunch because I want to make sure you get your swap plus it is important to me to maintain a good rating. Happy Swapping!

About Me

I recently have been starting to do some craft fairs, there are only a couple in my small town a year but have been working hard to get some good crafts done to sell in it. During this process I am realizing that I am in need of some really cute embellishments that I put on my paper crafts, metal ones, wood ones, tassles, unusually buttons....so if you are one of my swap partners and are looking for something that I may like please consider any of these items, they would be greatly appreciated.

Comment: Thank you very much for your postcard, Diane. It was so sad and nice at the same time reading about your horses. I'm sorry Redwood and Cindy passed away. And I had no idea how old horses can get. Thank you so much for sharing.
Response: Thank you for the sweet comment. Horses generally start getting really old around 30 or so but have been known to live much longer. Our old guy Blackie is 30 or 31. He has sloweed way down but can still out run the other horses when he wants to. lol Have a very Happy Halloween!

Comment: Thank you for the pc and sharing your horses. Horses are beautiful animals. I sent my pcs for this swap to India and Germany but I'm sure they speak English too. Take care!
Response: Yes, horses are majestic animals for sure. I just got my card from Germany ...from someone originally from Finland but living in Germany. Very interesting swap:)

Comment: I'm a serious movie/series bingewatcher too. If I didn't have a daughter, I think I would be stuck in my couch/bed forever haha... I had a Game of Thrones withdrawal (after watching all seasons - twice!). I can't wait for the new season of Witcher. :)
Response: I have not seen Witcher...is it good? Thank you for the heart!

I am just dropping in to leave you a message to brighten your day. Sun is shinning here. The warmth of it on my skin helps chase to blue away and make me smile. I can't wait for summer and to dive into the lake. I am so thankful for wonderful people like you who have helped me get through the Covid times and keep me smiling. Thank you for always being a great swap buddy and spreading joy. keep sparkling my friend.

I love cardmaking, but turns out I'm not very good at it! I'm glad you are tho! I just wanted to stop by and say, you're beautiful and talented! Keep up the good work and remember how special you are and that special light you bring into other people's lives!

image Hello Diane, 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🌻

Leave a message on my profile! Hello Diane, greetings from CA! It was such a beautiful day today! Yesterday we had some drizzling rain but today it was all refreshed and so much warmer. So happy you are doing craft fairs! I always wanted to do those, it's just that I am not sure what kind of things people would buy around here. It's good to learn the market first! Please let me know what kind of things you are making to sell!! Hope you have a beautiful day!! Ida
