About Me

I promise to ALWAYS rate. Also, If anything comes postage due to you, please let me know and I will fix. I often look at profiles and try my best to fit the swap to you!

Originally from New Hampshire, I now live just North of Austin, Texas with my husband, teenager and two cats (Mitzi and Homer).

If you would like to have a private swap contact me!

Favorite Crafts

I'm currently focused on ATCs, smash books, photography, drawing, painting, linoleum printing, crochet, leather and chainmaille (the metal rings, not the annoying letters).

I do get board and love learning new things, so if you have a craft you love, tell me about it and maybe I'll give it a try.

If you are interested, my tutorials can be found on my Flickr page, which is listed in the links above.

Favorite Music

Goth (70-80s), Electronica/Dance, Classic Punk (70s-80s), Global, but I'm pretty eclectic!

Some favorite bands of mine are: Royksopp, Dead Can Dance, Bauhaus, Morrissey, Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, Cocteau Twins, The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, She Past Away, but there are really too many.

I spent several years working in college/community non-profit radio. :)

Favorite Books

Authors I Love: Ray Bradbury, Paulo Coehlo, Hermann Hesse, Charlaine Harris, HP Lovecraft.

Themes I Love: sci-fi, fantasy, post-apocalyptic/dystopian, futurism, steampunk, vintage/classics.

Favorite Movies

We don't have cable, so it's Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, SlingTV and antenna. That covers most of it.

Shows I like: Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, The Twilight Zone (original), The Originals, Sherlock (BBC), Penny Dreadful, Broadchurch, iZombie, True Blood, Sense8, Dark Mirror, Dusk 'Til Dawn, Stranger Things, American Gods, Dark Matter, The Walking Dead, Supernatural, and I could go on and on.

Sci-Fi, fantasy and foreign films are my first choices.

Films I Like: Labyrinth, City of Lost Children, Mirrormask, Sucker Punch, Young Frankenstein, Kiki's Delivery Service, Wristcutters: A Love Story, Gattacca, Lost Boys, Repo: Genetic Opera, Mad Max, Indiana Jones and similar.

Likes:

Handmade items. I'd love to have something handmade by you if you're a crafter!

I have a small art wall with owl themed art (new and vintage).

For Tea swaps: I like anything! The more unique the better. I'm the one in the Indian, Asian and other specialty markets picking out interesting teas. Along with bagged teas I am open to loose tea, granule teas (often from China), chai packets, Thai tea packets and also coffee packets (like Vinacafe from Vietnam).

Comment: LOVED the Barbarella PC! Thank you so much. It has finally gotten cold here, but we are still getting some random days in the 50s, so I will take them as often as I can get them (I am not a cold weather person, at all!).

Comment: Thank you for the very colorful card that you colored and sent. Also the note you wrote. I will have to look up the Old SciFi radio from the 50's. I don't remember them but we were more involved with early TV as my dad was an engineer and moved from radio to TV in 52.
Response: Quite a few of the early radio shows moved over to TV and even had a presence on both simultaneously. I thought of you the other day when I picked up the 1952-53 Motion Picture and Television Almanac. I love old radio, TV and film.
