About Me

5-15-2013 - I am home and I have rated the swaps I received while I was away (thank you all). I will now take a break for a while for personal issues. I hope to be back swapping soon, although I will stick around and read forums and stuff.

I am a mixed media artist living in South Carolina. I met my husband on a private message board discussing the Elian Gonzalez story (the little boy who was coming to the US from Cuba and his mother died and there was a fight for custody). I have lived in Europe, Boston, Los Angeles, Florida before moving to South Carolina earlier this year. My good friend that I met on the same message board as my husband made my wedding dress, through the mail, we never met until 2 years later. She is a wonderful fiber artist. I am so lucky.

I have two dogs, Amber a toy poodle and Becky a 5 lb silky terrier. They are my babies.

Favorite Crafts

I love doing all sorts of art, I have made many ATC's. I decorate old cigar boxes and make large paintings, I dye silk and make miniature quilts, beading, I can't even tell you how much stuff I have, I drive my husband crazy. I do photography as well. I love cooking too. I have been making a bunch of art dolls lately.

Favorite Movies

I have a massive DVD collection and I am open to all types of movies from Fried Green Tomatoes to Spiderman to Silence of the Lambs. I even one time got to go to a movie oremiere when I lived in Los Angeles.

I do no flake on swaps, if you have not received something from me and I have marked it sent, please contact me so I can resend. I will do the same for you. I always rate the same day I receive a swap and will hope that you will rate me as well. I really enjoy the community here as I live out in the country and don't get to see many people, especially other artists, so thank you all my fellow art swappers.
