Heart October Swapper of the Month - SybilMcC

Congratulations to our October Swapper of the Month! Here is a little information about Sybil.

My niece was a Stampin’ Up demonstrator and got me interested in card making and stamps. She told me about SCS and I started just browsing. I got enthralled with inchies, made a few and put them on my gallery and was invited to start swapping.

- how long have you been doing this

I joined SCS in January, 2008 and started swapping shortly after that. I was so scared to put myself out there, but everyone was so supportive and helpful, I just kept going with it.

- do you have any other hobbies

Oh mercy yes. I sew, embroider, crochet, knit, smock, you name it. My little hands are never still.

- a bit about your family & friends

I have been married 55 years to Himself. I have two sons, one 52, one 42. A wonderful daughter-in-law, two grandsons, ages 21 and 13. I have bunches of friends to share my hobbies. I have lots of SCS friends now to add to my collection.

- favorite tools of the trade

I am a “punch junky”. I have no idea how many I have but I love them and keep buying more.

- something we might not know

I quit school at 15 and got married, which was not unusual at the time and in our "country" area. I raised my boys, and then went back to school at 40 years old. I graduated from college when I was 45.

- favorite swapping experience

All the inchie swaps have been my most enjoyable ones. I have had so many good experiences I can’t pick a favorite.

- anything else that you would like to share

I was so surprised to receive this honor. Thank you for considering me.
Make sure you stop by and check out Sybil's gallery and look for her in the swap forums.

Here is the link to her gallery -

Feel free to post here if you have anything you would like to add!

Congrats, Sybil McC!!! You are one of my BESTEST IFFs here on SCS. I love how you keep up the chatter on the swap threads. It's so fun to share in your adventures with Himself and Charlie. Love your whimsical style of art.
