About Me

I am someone who always has to creating something in one form or another. I don't think there isn't something that I haven't tried at least once and when I like something, I really get into it!

I owned my own stained glass studio for 10 years and also showed at craft shows and science fiction conventions.

I tend to enjoy fantasy and mythical characters and watch a lot of Sci-Fi shows and movies but am a sucker for a chic flic...especially tear jerkers!

My kids are all grown and gone,but my DH and I are left with 2 rambunctious fur kids who basically try to rule our lives.

I am currently an exclusive designer for Paperthreads creating die cutting files for personal cutting machines. I have my blog which I update regularly to showcase my work, help with tips and tutorials as well as share little stories about what is currently going on with me!

Favorite Movies

I love movies that make me feel something and depending on my mood that can vary from one extreme to the other. In no particular order: The Princess Bride, Big Fish, My Life as a House, The Notebook, A Christmas Story, The Phantom of the Opera, GroundHog Day, National Lampoon's Vacation, Star Wars, Jaws, From Dusk to Dawn, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Uncle Buck, Michael, 4 Weddings and a Funeral, Greenfingers, Napolean Dynomite, all Tim Burton projects, Dark comedies like Heathers, etc!

Favorite Television

Fringe, House, Bones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Gilmore Girls, Project Runway, Numbers, How I Met Your Mother, My Name is Earl, Battlestar Gallactica, Beauty and the Beast, Andy Griffith Show, I Love Lucy, Alton Brown and other Food Network Shows!

Favorite Colors

Reds, Purples, Blues, Black & White and Fall Earth Tones

My least favorites are light yellows and oranges

Favorite Crafts

YES! I love to try everything at least once. I enjoy jewelry making (chainmaille), cross stitch, soap and candlemaking, scrapbooking, making cards, homemade gifts (edible) and fimo. I also knit and quilt :)

What I Like

I love to receive items that are fun and make me smile. I love items that have been handmade and had thought put into them.

Love Cupcakes, Hedgehogs, Cooking, Alice in Wonderland, Paper Craft Magazines, Reading, Craft Supplies, & Chocolate!

I mostly make cards so I love to receive neat embellishment type items, ribbons, stamps (postage and rubber) as well as rub-ons and decals. I'm trying to get more into scrapbooking so design layout idea's are always welcome.

I'm not hard to please and love surprises!

What I Dislike

Raspberry! Seriously...anything that smells or tastes like...as a child before flouridated everything, when we would go to the dentist, after the cleaning we would have to have a flouride treatment. This entailed having a "raspberry" flavored gloop put on cotton rolls (4) which were then put in your mouth between the teeth and gums. You then sat in the chair for 3 days (ok...so I was young and while I have tried to block I know it was at LEAST 10-15 mintues)....anyway...the feeling and taste come back whenever I smell or eat a raspberry....so PLEEEEAAASSSSEEEE No Raspberry!


I send out every single swap that I sign up for and am always excited to hear when someone receives what I sent and really likes it.

I too look forward going to the mailbox and receiving the next postcard, envelope or package.

To that end I Pledge to rate every single swap I am in and to give "hearts' to those extra special packages.

Unfortunatley I have also been flaked on by some people and so in addition to my promise above, I also Pledge to make sure that I rate those persons who didn't honor a swap. I will try to contact the person in case it is a simple misunderstanding before I rate. If the item is sent after the rating, I will go back and mark as received. Please don't flake!
