About Me

I live in the country with my husband and a variety of cats and dogs. My hobbies include reading, gardening, papercrafting, and crocheting.I've just started sewing and enjoy trying to recycle old things into new...

Aubree, my grand daughter was born on August 9,2012. She is a happy, healthy, beautiful little girl and i am her slave...I wouldn't want it any other way!

I work in an office during the week so Swap-bot and crafting help me unwind.

I love my dogs...Rudy, Buddy and Max I play the clarinet in the college band. I've been playing since I was 11 and I still love it!

Favorite Books

My favorite books are thrillers and fantasy type books. My favorite authors are: John Grisham, Dan Brown, James Patterson. My favorite books are the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit. I also like Harry Potter and own all the books. I've been trying to read the books listed in "1001 books you must read before you die" I've recently discovered audio books and have quite a collection.

Favorite Movies

Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Old Black and White movies. I've just started building my DVD library.

Favorite Crafts

Paper Crafting is my favorite. I enjoy Mixed Media art. Cloth, Paper, Scissors is my all time favorite magazine. I have a cricut machine and enjoy using it.

I like crocheting and i have worked my way up to intermediate patterns.


I love dogs and collect dog stuff, particularly Doberman Pinscher and German Shepherd.

Postcards: Store bought or hand made. Sent naked. I like most anything but especially touristy cards and night time cityscapes and winter scenes.

Inchies, moo cards, house shaped ATC's, dottee dolls.

I collect altered letter B's. I have a wall that is covered in B's...I could always use more! Also, any thing with my name on it!

APC's (Altered Playing Cards): These are my current favorite thing in whole world. I am working on a bunch of decks, trying to collect all 52 cards in a particular theme. I'm currently collecting:
Harry Potter
Disney Movies
Pink (the color) Artist's Choice......in case none of the themes appeal to you.

Other wonderful things

I love bright, cheery colors. Sparkle and bling too!

I love paper....journals, notebooks, stationary, wrapping paper, fun post-it notes and memos to use at work.....I can't get enough paper!

Favorite Foods

My favorite foods are salty snacks. Sunflower seeds (salted but not flavored) are a favorite! Chips and Salsa are a close second!

Mexican food is one of my favorite foods. Luckily, there are lots of mexican restaurants here in California! I'm always looking for the perfect Hot Salsa recipe...I haven't found it yet.
