I have been married for 19 years, no children, but have fur babies, and a feathered baby. I have taught scrapbooking, card making, paper crafts, at a local arts & crafts store. I love being creative, animals, photography, painting, vampires, and getting together with friends. My husband is a machinist who works long hours making huge parts for earth movers and oil rigs, so I am home alone alot and I do various things to keep my mind occupied and creating, like scrapbooking, card making, painting (one stroke), music and visiting the internet. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which limits me to do things and I have good and bad days. Bad days are BAD, so I try to keep myself occupied with things I can do sitting for the most part. I'm a Christian, who loves life and all that it has to offer. I have designed on a desgin team for a blog site called Bitten By The Bug, where we are challenged to design items (paper crafts) based on what the creator selects using our Cricut cutting machines (Provo Craft product). I have a yahoo group called East Texas Scraps for scrapbookers, card makers and such where I have some works posted. I also sell some of my works via eBay, my member name is billmoles if you would like to view the rating or our history. I recycle to decrease my ecological footprint, so you may find envelopes, packages, packaging, and other items are reused to save our landfills and trees.
I like Christain music, but also listen to jazz, classical, country, rock, and new age. It really depends on my mood or what is going on around me. I really enjoy instrumental music and relaxing sounds music, it keeps the stress level down.
I am reading Twilight since I have a love of Vampires. It is the idea of immortality that intrigues me. I read any book that involves crafts or tips and tricks for my hobbies then I will shuffle through it. I mostly like magazines, the stories are short and more pictures to inspire and get ideas from.
I seem to enjoy vampire movies like Twilight, Blade, Under World, etc.. all though I am not gothic by any means. I also like fantasy movies like Erigon, Narnia, and anything Disney.
I enjoy True Blood, CSI, Dirty Jobs, Nurse Jackie, The United States of Tara, Treme, the Histroy channel, Discovery channel, Animal Planet, DIY, and craft shows.
I like One Stroke Painting, and took 2 classes. Need to get more paints and books on techniques. I do scrapbooking, card making, photography, and other paper crafts. I have made jewelry, stained glass, fused glass, and Fimo in the past. Kind of a jack of all crafts. I do not know how to oil paint, knit, or needle work. Just couldn't get the knack for it. I love to learn new crafts or creative ways of expression.
I collect snowmen, turkeys, and keep them displaied all year. I decorate in a rustic/lodge theme with a deer mount, bears, moose, pine trees etc... I dislike negative vulgar, rude anything because I beleive if you let trash in then eventually trash will come out. It always does.
I dislike rap music, sorry just can't get used to it. Foamies, for some reason they just seem unright by me. So far that is what I can think of.
I love animals, the smell of nature, walking along the beach finding shells, resting in a hammock, watching birds at the feeder, feeding the squirrels, spa days(wish I could afford more), Molten Chocolate dessert at Chili's, listening to a babbeling brook, the scent of flowers, and affection from animals. Eating M&M's plain. Southern Sweet Tea. Finding rainbows after the rain. Reisling wine. Most of all SNOWMEN/WOMEN, they represent a change and being able to start fresh and new. I am addicted to an Apple game application called Vampires Live as well as other Storm 8 games. I am a clan leader of the Vipers in the game and we chat on Palringo. I have been playing for months and just can not get enough. So to say I like vampires is an understatment but I am not gothic, I find the idea of immortality interesting. For years I have enjoyed thrift stores, garage sales, craft shows, craft malls, second hand shops,eBay, and Free cycle. Being thrifty but also for the great things you can find that you would not see in regular stores, but mostly due to wanting to save things from landfills keeps me supporting them.
