My name is Angie and I live in Wisconsin.

I have two dogs, Daisy and Bruiser. I lost my mailart muse, Snooky the Corgi, last November. He was a good boy.

I like to make mixed media postcards and ATCs. I like to play with rubber stamps including hand carving my own. I have a big shot with cool dies. I have lots of stencils. Recently I've been painting more though I still love the other stuff.

People often reveal their age and then say, "But I'm young at heart." I've always been old at heart.

I'm not really into astrology though that whole Gemini thing certainly has some truth to it. I often see things from multiple points of view. In addition, I can be social and gregarious and then quiet and withdrawn. I'm happy both ways just at different times.

I remember my dreams vividly and I do think they tell me things. A book I was reading recently suggested that we are all the characters in our dreams. I find that interesting.

I like ...
The color orange
Science fiction
Handmade postcards
Bohemian, shabby chic type styles
Wearing blue jeans
Being barefoot
Jurassic Park (books and movies)
Survivor (television show)
Twilight and daybreak (times of day, not movies)

My husband is a big super hero/comic book fan - so by association, so am I. We'll usually see all the DC and Marvel movies in the theater. We both enjoy science fiction movies together as well. He's an artist in his own right and so is supportive of my efforts to be one. We've been married for 20 years.

Comment: Great 3-piece PC :D! Hope you are surviving the remainder of the heat this summer. We had a heat wave last week that we just aren’t used too. Surprised I didn’t melt into a puddle! :D

Comment: Thank you for the llama horse. :) I would go for a magical beast! Surely the saddlecloth hides its wings.
Comment: You're way ahead of me on this one. I just got back from Vermont/New Hampshire so will work on mine this weekend. Love that sweet faced cat looking out at me & the mushrooms at his feet! Thanks, Angie.
Comment: Hi Angie! Love your 4 from 1 pot card. You used such fun images and bright colors. It put a smile on my face when I took it out of the mailbox! Thanks for a fun swap!!
Comment: Thanks so much fro your contribution to my zine and for hosting this fun swap! I love the bear and killer whale! I haven't even seen a bear yet this summer! I did see some orcas, playing tag with some fishing boats though. I'm up for another one of these, too. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Dogs after the cat who is after the mushrooms... Fun postcard - thanks! (It was hot, but has gone back to more normal temps for this time of year. Hope yours is likewise!)

Comment: I love collage-love to do it and love to receive it to see how others put it together. Like the composition of yours. Glad I gave you an excuse to go down in the basement and cool off-thanks for sharing. Promises to be a nice day here today-only in the lower 70's after some high humidity days! Take care!
Comment: I love your contribution to my book! I love that you included cats. I’m definitely a cat person! Thanks!
Comment: Oh Angie - the colorful cat love pages are so amazing - thanks for the fun and beauty (and for hosting!). Love, the VirginRRZineQueen :D
Comment: Thank you for all the work you put into creating this PC for me. I think you did and excellent job recreating starry night. If you haven't tried watercolor pencils, try them!

GinaVisione rated for MA: Cat Street Art postcard on Jun 21, 2019
Comment: OMG Angie - awesome King Cat AND all the brick and line details! Way to go!!!
Response: Thanks Gina. I love drawing the building bits - perhaps I should move onto city-scapes except that I love the cats and dogs so much. Thanks for the nice rating and I hope you enjoy the card!
MamaMangrove rated for MA: Whatcha reading? postcard on Jun 21, 2019
Comment: Your heroine arrived yesterday. Cool card, but life's too short to read bad books! I used to feel like I had to finish every book I started, as thought I had a contract with the author. But now if it's badly written or just doesn't appeal I move on to another. Will work on my card for you this weekend - as soon as I can put the book down!
Response: The ending of the book was pretty decent and truth be told, I was listening to audio and at the end they had a very interesting interview with Douglas Preston. My son happens to be driving with me lately, and we both felt the interview was worth the wait. The book had good elements but the writing is a little ... cheap? short-cutty? Anyway, thanks for the nice rating.
RockyBeach rated for CC: Animal with wings postcard on Jun 19, 2019
Comment: It's a cat, of course! :) And right today was a missing-kitty-note on my door. The description isn't matching your winged cat (but I hope that she will be found soon). Thank you!
Response: Oh. I hope your neighbor finds their cat. I'm glad you found my winged cat! That is a fun swap. Thanks for the nice rating.
