About Me

7 May 17 : Leg progress going well. Up and about and according to medicos fabulous progress. After 2 months in a wheelchair and very little exercise the current challenge is to build up my strength..thankfully I have maintained my arms and hands by crafting!

Please do not panic if I have not rated your post for up to 6 weeks. ( Just received one in May posted late December) The postal system seems to be crawling at the moment. I am continually amazed at how reliable it is given the distance from me to you.I have had the very occasional loss. The longest wait was 12 months! I have found patience to be a virtue so particularly if we are regular swappers I am not going to give you a bad rating but trust that it will get here one day. It's always great to communicate though so a quick message is appreciated if you are concerned and I do love a chat! I am a Mum and Wife who loves a crafty challenge.

Who would have thought a simple card would have started this 3 years ago. Nearly all my swaps have been with ATC and cards, mainly because of postage costs.
We live in an idyllic seaside town right down at the bottom of the world in South Australia. I have made some very special friends and swapped with some very gifted artists on here. Thank you to each and everyone! .

About Me

I appreciate anything people have put effort into. I am not good at freehand art ,drawing, painting but appreciate other peoples talents. I love vintage images. I prefer feminine, elegant, whimsical art. I like butterflies, birds, bird cages, candelabras. , flowers,. Some days I like vintage colors, the next Moroccan brights. I love new techniques..mixed media, embossing, spray inks, My latest love it embossing enamel. I love flowers on everything. My most expensive addiction is to Graphic 45 papers. I am trying to collect many of the discontinued papers.

Life Challenges.

I am a Breast cancer survivor. I have just had my 6 years since diagnosis and so far all good with the doctors starting to feel positive. One supportive husband who is the nicest human being I know. He is a model train layout fanatic and also collects old matchbox toys from the 50-70s. My daughter is a teacher and a talented henna artist. She is married but lives close by which is wonderful. My son is also at university doing a teaching degree and still lives with us.

Favorite Books

Historical fiction, Family sagas.

Favorite Crafts

My favourites- COLORS- Gold, Green, blue, pink, purple, red are first choice but I love all colors. PAPERS- Graphic 45 love every scrap . Vintage themes EMBELLISHMENTS- Dresden scrap borders, lace, flowers, charms, filigree PRODUCTS- Tim Holtz, mica infused paints, embossing powder & enamels, THEMES- Vintage, Shabby Chic, Floral,Paris TECHNIQUES- Collage, embossing, stamping, mixed media, altered Art,

Please do not send.

No need to send extras. I have all I need ( exception...any morsel of Graphic 45). Truly I have enough paper etc to stock several shops. I rate and give hearts firstly for effort and secondly because they are free and you can never be too kind ! My Christian values and faith are very important to me.However I am not judgemental or particularly opinionated. I believe in love and living at peace with all. I try to show respect and treat fairly all without judgement. I find that kindness and acceptance are easy to give and I enjoy bringing joy to others . Please do not send that which may offend. ( Wicca, Pagan, Violent, Ghoulish) I do enjoy "nice"halloween themes and fantasy.

Comment: Beautiful, Bev! Such an amazing image and I simply adore the glittery camera and the CINEMA sign is such an amazing touch. I never care if my ATC's are a bit larger--I can just put those on the top row of my album. Great colors, too--pink! woohoo! I'm glad you are getting better, even though it's slow going. Your work is always an inspiration.
