About Me

HI! I'm Wendy. I've been doing crafts since I was 6, that was about the time my mom started trusting me with sharp objects (I cut myself more now than when I was a kid). I'm 50+, have no kids. Have been in a LTR with the same guy now for over 20 years. I used to teach classes at Michaels craft stores (Tucson, AZ) and Joanne Fabric and Crafts (Austin,TX). And I currently work for Hobby Lobby in NC. I have been absent from Swapbot for a while now, and I'm so ready to get back to swapping.

I've worked with polymer clay, gourds, glass etching. I've designed earrings, costumes, skating dresses, and logos. I've made various stuffed animals and dolls. Every year I make Christmas ornaments to give as presents, I also make my own Christmas cards every year. I have been making ATC's for over 8 years now. I like rubber stamping and some scrapbooking.

I've painted a few animals on rocks, but pretty much gave that up when I realized it cost more to send them than paint them.

I'm wanting to learn how to airbrush, I've had the airbrush for 9 years I think it's about time to bust it out of it's package.

My current crafting obsession is with UV resin. And anything/everything Silhouette machine based.

My house is smoke and pet free.

Crafting is an expensive hobby but it is cheaper than therapy. (Most times)

Favorite Music

Beatles, 80's, Enigma, Paul McCartney. Classic rock. FALCO.Cast in Bronze. I hate to think how much music we lost in John Lennon.

Not really "music" but if you ever get a chance to hear "NASA Voyager Recordings...Symphony of the Planets" is very relaxing. It's currently out of print, was distributed by Laser Light.

Favorite Television

Blacklist, Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Fraiser, Northern Exposure, NCIS, CSI, Dirty Jobs (Sure just ask me about Dirty Jobs, if you've got the time....)AHS (American Horror Story), TWD (The Walking Dead).. X-Files. The Good Doctor, Just about anything on the Sci Fi channel, or Discovery, HGTV (I miss Carol Duvall)


Artsy Fartsy stuff. Asian, egyptian and Celtic themes. Purples, greens. I ADORE anything that has to do with the Beatles or crafting. I love rubberstamps, especially embossing powders. Steampunk.


I don't do cutesy. Especially babies. I had my fill already, even though I've never had any. Or religious. Not fond of pink. MARTHA STEWART! HATE GLITTER! Sorry.

GUYS! Likes A LOT =)

My guy Steve! Brendan Fraser, Adrian Paul (met, drool), Mike Rowe (met, He actually smells good!) His sidekick snicker Dave Barsky (met, great guy!), Paul McCartney (was within 20 feet of him, I chickened out), John Schneider (met, another great guy) that's about it until something else happens.

Wish list

Face rubber stamps.

Small, clear cling, or red rubber stamps for altering dominos.

Landscape rubber stamps.

Shrink plastic that goes through the computer printer. Especially clear! (can't find that anymore)

Embossing powders.

Really cool ephemra. (Asian, Egyptian, & Celtic)

Push molds (non cutesy) Clear silicone molds used for UV Resin.

Skull things (small) Like beads, stamps, stickers.

Otherwise I pretty much have everything I need.

New stuff

I just recently had my ears repierced! Woo hoo! I have 3 in my left 2 in my right. I'm trying to get into a few jewerly swaps. I can't wear gold (allergic, go figure) Nothing with nickel silver. Surgical steel and sterling silver is ok. As for colors, anything is good. Just nothing to bulky.

Comment: love, love love the magnet you made. Thank you very much. The horse one is great and you did a great job on the bottle caps, what a clever idea leaving them around places for others. Many hearts and higher rating to you.

Response: Glad you liked them. Was stuck on a theme that would fit you. I was hard for me to give up the black one, I REALLY wanted to keep it. I guess I'll have to make another.

Moregan rated for Handmade Jewelry Swap on Sep 25, 2011
Comment: Love, love, love my jewelry!! Great job, Wendy!
Response: I'm glad you liked them. The bead on the bracelet came from a bead shop in Tombstone,AZ I fell in love with them but never used them. I couldn't find a matching pair. She was discontinuing them and I bought out what was left. The bird pendant was rescued from a recycling plant. Some guy brought in 3, 5 gallon buckets with metal discs like that. Thankfully a friend grabbed them before they got "junked".

Have you tried Arizona Art Supply for the clear shrinky stuff to put into the printer? I thought I saw some there at the Phoenix store. Went to an ATC meet/swap/instruction thingy there and met someone else on swapbot- too cool!
