I am an elementary school teacher in Holly, Michigan. I LOVE paper and any paper craft.
I have four wonderful children. My oldest is off at college and my youngest is in kindergarten. My family has great times together. Our schedules can get crazy, but I wouldn't want it any other way.
I am always reading and taking online classes. I love learning and trying new things. I raise and train Siberian Huskies, the most beautiful dogs on the planet!
MY DAUGHTER: I've joined a few swaps with my youngest daughter. Her name is Rosie and she loves purple, pink, and anything princess or Hello Kitty. Really, she'll love any buttons, bits of ribbon, die cuts, and stickers you send. Thank you!
I am crazy about paper: vintage paper, textured paper, scrapbook paper, patterned paper...all of it.
I create altered books, up-cycled journals, ATCs, cards, and scrapbooks.
I AM SAVING MY SWAP-BOT ENVELOPES, and binding them together in a book. I love to receive decorated and handmade envelopes :D I also crochet, make zines, and I've just started swapping inchies and paper art dolls.
I am collecting ATCs and journals that are related to Christianity and scripture. I'd love to trade Bible study or faith related ATCs in private swaps. Let me know if you want to trade!
I love everything about the theatre. It is such a magical creative process to work with others and bring a story to life. While professional theatre can be wonderful, I would much rather watch a show put together by a community theatre group. There is something wonderful about teachers and lawyers and cashiers all getting together on stage. I am currently directing a very funny melodrama and writing a children's Christmas show.
My goal in 2011 is to go see 52 stage plays! I started on January first with Mary Poppins, what a great show!
I recently got a Canon Rebel camera and am having a great time learning about photography.
I love my little terrier mix pup and my team of Siberian Huskies!
I collect ATCs, Mr. Potato Heads, vintage valentines, and musical instruments. I am just staring a Mini-Zine collection. I'd love to swap zines with you!! I'm collecting journals, art dolls, & ATCs related to Christianity and the Bible for a women's conference at a Christian camp.
Valentines, zines, inchies, textured and vintage paper, stickers, die cuts, hearts, mini anything, music, musical instruments, Scrabble pieces, Mr. Potato Head, Anything OZ, Christian and Bible related ATCs/ journals
ANOTHER NOTE: I think art should be a reflection of who you are... so please don't feel like you have to make ATCs to reflect who I am. I mean, thanks for reading my profile... but ultimately, it is your art, and I appreciate when you honestly share your heart in a swap.
THANKS FOR SWAPPING!
