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.
