Favorite Crafts

  • sewing (quilts, bags, mug rugs, key fobs, etc)
  • prayer cards
  • watercoloring or bible journaling or making envelopes, ATC and memorydex cards, greeting cards
  • making things for my Erin Condren planner

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
  • Christian related items (no other religions please)
  • For swaps that are thrift store based: any clothes or fabrics that are clean and are non-stretchy that can be used in my quilting or bag making is great. Any 100% wool sweaters. Any quilting templates that you find.
  • Fabrics - modern themes/colors
  • Feel free to send me a good book that you recommend
  • ephemera or embellishments that I can use for my memorydex and ATC cards
  • stamped images on watercolor paper that I can watercolor and use in other projects
  • I do like stationary for writing penpal letters and neat pens
  • anything that would be good for bible journaling
  • I love homemade watercolors or watercoloring supplies
  • learning to do hand stitching embroidery; Feel free to send anything to encourage me with this.
  • Kitchen towels (you can never have enough), crochet or knit dishcloths, homemade swiffer pads
  • homemade stuffies or homemade dolls or animals. I keep seeing these cute little things everyone is making and I am in love and want my own to name and love
  • crafting/cardstock papers at least 4x4 or larger
  • locally roasted coffee beans
  • tea - but only black or cinnamon. I LOVE cinnamon. I do not like fruity ones, orange, or clove at all.
  • Illustrated Faith Brand anything. I really love their pens and ephemera and papers.
  • doll clothes patterns (barbies and 18" dolls)


Don't feel like you need to include "extras". 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 (light clean body sprays okay)

Comment: Wow! These are so good, I thought they were store bought for a minute and was confused what swap this was! xD Thanks so much.
Response: I am so happy you liked them. The towels themselves are store bought, but you cut them and use fabric to make the beautiful and useful top. Its a wonderful tutorial :)
