About Me

I'm a singer/musician, and retired recycled-materials artist who enjoys the (sometimes, lol) benefits of being ADD, which means I "specialize" in whatever has most recently riveted my attention. I love to create.

Most especially, I love writing lyrics and creating music as half of the duo, Sparrow. I've included the links to our YouTube channel, which has the videos we've created, our Patreon page, and our Soundcloud channel, with all the recent tracks. I love visitors, so please come give us a listen!

In General

I'm married to my second husband; together we have 7 "kids", 16 grandkids, and have just welcomed our second greatgrandson, Griffin Maxwell. (Isn't that an awesome name?!) We live with our calico cat and little Scotty dog, in a house filled with collectibles, antiques, and whimsy. My mom likes to just wander around looking to see what's new.

Things I love to do: garden, play, dance, sing, bake, create art, crochet, make jewelry. Most of all, I love singing, and creating music. I swear, it's like a drug high for me. (Not that I ever was into drug highs, lol.)

I love toe socks! You know, the ones that fit your feet like gloves. Here's the deal: I have big feet! (Size 9 1/2) Most socks that Say they fit, are just a little bit on the small side, and they tend to twist around on my feet, which drives me nuts. Toe socks can't do that, and it's just plain wonderful.

Favorite Music

Folk, especially British Isles, Country/Western, Show Tunes, Freak Folk, Oldies of every ilk, Alternative, Old Rock...

Actually, my tastes are so eclectic, it might be easier just to say I'm not a huge fan of Jazz, and don't care for Rap (or anything else I can't harmonize with), or hard Rock.

Favorite groups, singers: First Aid Kit, Ma Muse, Elephant Revival, Fleet Foxes, Loreena McKennit, John Renbourne, Steeleye Span, Trio, Asleep at the Wheel, Dixie Chicks, Clearwater Revival, Eliza Gilkison, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor....there are so many more!

Favorite Books

Holographic Universe (quantum physics, but an excellent read), The Time Traveler's Wife, Guy Murchie's Seven Mysteries of Life, anything by Dorothy Sayers, mysteries of all sorts, Gore's Attack on Reason, The Stuff of Thought (can't think of the author right now), all of Mark Twain, everything I ever read by CS Lewis (and he wrote a LOT beyond The Chronicles of Narnia), anything by Victoria Holt, Regency romances, Science Fiction, Historical novels, anything by Dick Francis or his son Felix. I read mostly fiction, but if I run across a well-written non-fiction book I will absolutely devour it.

I love audio books, and listen to mostly non-fiction there.

Favorite Movies

I don't get to see many, even on TV, but I adore musicals, science fiction, chick flicks. I love Disney, especially the animated ones. Actually, I like animated movies, period. A particular favorite: Howl's Moving Castle. Oh, and I adored Monsters, Inc. and The Incredibles.

Favorite Television

Pretty much anything British. The Voice, America's Got Talent (or any other country, for that matter--watch them on YouTube) Bletchley Circle, Father Brown, Dancing with the Stars, political news (I'm kind of a political news junkie), CSI, Antiques Roadshow.

Favorite Crafts

Recycled/reclaimed/repurposed crafts of all kinds. Photography. Playing with Photoshop. Paper crafts. Crochet. Collage, both flat and 3-D, gardening, reading, decorative envies.

I love baking cookies, and I collect metal cookie cutters. Don't know why I'm not attracted to the plastic ones, just amn't, I guess.

This isn't a craft, per se, but I love, love, love wordplay of all varieties.

Just miscellaneous stuff here:

I'm a coffee drinker of the grind my own beans ilk, always black. Tea is good, too. I like to try new ones, but I'm allergic to licorice, chicory, and mint. Anything else, though, is good.

I've been on a low carb diet for about two years. It was hard at first. Now I rarely even am tempted by sweets.

Dislikes, Etc.

It's not like there's a lot I dislike, but intolerant or judgmental people do get to me. This is such a sweet website, full of sweet people. Why lie in wait for someone to slip up? You know that feeling you get when you're driving and a cop pulls in behind you? You know you aren't doing anything wrong, and don't intend to, but....More than once I've seen things like, "If you don't send by the cut-off date, even if you're just one day late, I'll wait until the 3 rating becomes available and give it to you!" That's mean-spirited, IMHO. What do you do? Check the postmark & and rate on that, instead of the lovelies inside? Lighten up, folks, and give people the benefit of the doubt. We're here for Fun; it isn't a job. Honestly, if you're one of those people, I'd rather not have you for a partner; I get all tense just worrying I might do something to upset you!

As for likes, how about a list of things I love receiving? Chocolate Ephemera Stickers, except kiddy ATC's Decorated tags Unusual images, especially funny ones Neat art papers Beads and jewelry findings Magnet sheets Buttons Bits o' this n' that Vintage anything Handwritten notes Ribbon & lace Socks with toes (What can I say?)

And just one last thing: My name is Anitra, not Anita. It's a little thing to be picky about, I know, but it's my name.

We got ripped off. It was as though someone dimmed the lights. But we did have a unusual cool breeze. I like to think the Eclipse moved through me
