About Me

I pledge to always rate. I understand that life happens. If I forget something, a gentle reminder is greatly appreciated! I do get frustrated by those that do not rate or do not respond to messages. I give great care to my swaps and like to know items have reached their destination. It's never too late to make things right. I enjoy notes tucked in with swaps...interesting snippets from life.

I am married with children and grandchildren. My husband and I love to travel whenever possible. Art and photography are a couple of my passions. I love exploring different avenues of creativity. I am a big believer in complimentary or alternative healing modalities, including but not limited to meditation, crystals, accupuncture, reiki; the list is endless.

I have been collecting postcards since childhood. I am a member of Postcrossing and Love notes. I can hardly resist beautiful stationery!

I enjoy being wrapped in a quilt, hot tea and book in hand. (especially on a rainy day) I'm a very eclectic reader. Book suggestions are always welcome. I love most teas and am open to new flavors. I am not a fan of anything licorice or peppermint flavored.

I love the colors of the ocean, sky, and deep, rich colors. I see the shape of hearts everywhere in nature and photograph them. I have quite a collection of found heart shaped rocks, shells, and bits of wood.

I keep an ongoing mixed media art journal. I collect quotes and poetry. I sketch, paint and doodle. I enjoy making artist trading cards, postcards and artist trading coins. I have recently become obsessed with making tags. I make and repair jewelry. I knit and sew a bit. I enjoy trying ethnic recipes.

I am a work in progress...learning new things everyday.

Likes: Unusual, vintage, steampunk, adult themed, sassy, science fiction, horror, Christmas, Halloween, All Saints Day or Dia de los Muertos. I visited Oaxaca, Mexico during the Day of the Dead festivities and love how the ancestors are honored. I am fascinated by Gods and Godesses, saints and sinners, history of ritual, symbology.

I have plenty of stuff, yet I find delight in surprises. I don't need small stickers or reward stickers, will pass those on. I enjoy using painted papers, unusual papers, trims, buttons, bits and bobs, keys, Tim Holtz , bees or anything with wings except flies and roaches :)

Random things: I have somewhat of an aversion to bananas, jello and pudding. I use a lot of herbs and spices in cooking. I am sensitive to smells, certain sounds, textures and overall energy of a place or person. I rely on my intuition. Kindness matters. Doing better one day at a time.

Another thought shared by a friend: " Do not compare your beginning to someone else's middle or advanced level." I think this applies to art, writing, and all sorts of things.

Comment: Last swap of 2021 received!!! Thank you for the ATC. Is the background gelli print? I've been eyeing that in my cart and just haven't made the purchase yet. Your background really makes everything come together nicely done. I love your choice of colors I like the blue and green together and don't know why I don't do it myself perhaps that will be my resolution to use colors I don't normally. We will see. Thanks again Happy Swapping and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Response: You are welcome. I love gelli printing! I usually set up an extra table and do a big batch. I experiment with all sorts of color combos, some I love, some not so much! It is a quick way to get interesting backgrounds. I also use the painted papers to make die cuts. Complete the cart transaction you won’t regret it!

Comment: thanks for the product recommendation chunk :^) My husband and I went blueberry picking this summer, but it was early in the season so not much bounty. Although we never managed to get back for more berries we do have some socked away in the freezer!
Response: My pleasure!
