Hello from Angie

Hello, I'm Angie.

Generate your own library card


I like playing with collage, mixed media, hand carving rubber stamps, buying rubber stamps, owning more paper than I can ever use, playing with my gelli plates, Sizzix die cutting machine and yeah, I like all that stuff and more.

I love that mailart has exposed me to many different styles, many different artists, many different perspectives.

I like exchanging naked handmade postcards and I usually do 5 x 7 inches in size. I find that size offers enough space to experiment while still being affordable to mail to someone. I like the postcards naked so the address, postage stamps and other postal markings are part of the piece.

I also make a lot of ATCs. I meet with a local group to exchange ATCs monthly.



I like ...

  • Dogs (I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and 2 Pekingese)
  • Clowns
  • Zebras and horses
  • Favorite color - orange
  • ATCs made by YOU (I love them)
  • Ephemera
  • Science Fiction
  • Rubber stamps
  • Naps


* Life Aquatic with Steve zissou - all of it but especially Claus, the submarine thingy, the ship profile, Eleanor
* Red Violin
* Star Trek - DS9 (Kira, Captain Sisko), NG - Enterprise D
* [Survivor] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivor(U.S.TV_series)) - Tikis, immunity necklaces and Jeff Probst
* Jason Bourne - Matt Damon as Bourne
* Firefly - Mel, Inara, Jayne, the ship, all of it
* Princes Bride - the movie
* Vanity Faire with Reese Witherspoon
* Spaced - British Television series
* Dawn of the Dead (2004), Shaun of the Dead, World War Z, Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, 28 Days later, 28 weeks later, and most things apocalyptic.


* Kate Grenville's colonial Australia trilogy about the first three generations of white settlement in Australia, and what that shared black/white history means for contemporary Australians. (The Secret River, The Lieutenant and Sarah Thornhill. )
* The Perfect Red by Amy Butler Greenfield
* Currently reading: The Last Painting of Sara de Vos by Dominic Smith

* Joseph Cornell assemblages --
* Paul Klee -
* Thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger
* Scion xB - 2nd generation, my car is black
* Bjork - Favorite song is Dull flame of desire that she sings with Anohni Hegarty.
* I enjoy getting hand made pieces. I will love anything you make yourself.

If you look at my Flickr photos or my Flickr favorites you'll get an idea of my eclectic tastes. I'm not easily offended but please don't try (to offend me). I just mean that I'm pretty open minded.



I run (or help run) 4 groups with the help of some great officers.

crescendo rated for JUNKIES: Shaker ATC on May 28, 2017
Comment: I love it! I've never seen glitter like those stars you used. They seem perfect for this, not too thick so they don't get stuck, and makes a lovely sound, shake shake shake. Haha the ladies in the polka dotted caps reminds me of the hairdryers we used when we were little where you put the whole cap on your head. I hope it has warmed up so you don't have to shiver while doing yard work! I can see getting addicted to making these. I just like listening to it, somehow it is soothing, like a baby's rattle! Wait, do babies still use rattles?!?

Comment: Hooray for Star Trek references! Thank you for both of the ATCs. They're awesome! And yes. We have also mowed the lawn when we could see our breath. We've actually mowed the lawn quick before it snowed! Lol! Gotta love the northern climates!

Lady rated for EJ: Map postcard quickie swap on May 8, 2017
Comment: I really like this. If I had a board where I kept "inspiration pieces", I would put it there. I really like the cut background. I know sometimes using big pieces presents gluing challenges, and this adds so much interest. I put Kate Grenville on my "to read" authors list (thanks), but I also just got 6 books at the library so it won't be right away.
Response: Yay! Thanks!
Kimmi50 rated for MAS: Zebra ATC on May 3, 2017
Comment: Thank you Angie for not just one but TWO Atcs! These are georgeous, I can't pick a favorite I love them both. I am can't believe you made one from a stamp you carved, amazing! So glad to see a fellow dog lover. It's not too many it's just three more that give you unconditional love. I like you can't imagine my life without my pups. Thanks for hosting a fun swap.😊🆒👍💯💖

Comment: Oh Wow Angie :-) I LOVE your little boekies,. I love your open form poetry, and the collages throughout are excellent! Thanks for gifting me with two of them.
Response: You're welcome and thanks for the nice rating!
Comment: Hello Angie :-) . . . Gosh! I love the Dachshund stamp! That is so cool. You are so early in getting this one out to me. I haven't even started at all. You say you're jealous of my time to make art, but one of my problems is having too much time and procrastination. I have a jillion pastimes to distract me, and I'm lazy and unorganized with my time. I have few responsibilities any more to help structure my day. And PSHAW on wishing you had my talent. For gosh sake Angie, you have Oodles of talent ! Your collages inspire me all the time, and I love your carved stamps. Our art is different is all that could be said, and isn't the grass always greener on the other side of the fence?
Response: You're welcome and thanks for the nice rating!
