About Me

Hi, my name is Phoebe. I just moved to the Netherlands from the US. I am concentrating on learning Dutch, and enjoying the beautiful weather, gardens, and architecture.

I love old books, even ones that are falling apart because I repurpose the pages into collage or art books/ smash books.

I really, really love computer books from the sixties, seventies, and eighties.

I love kids books and/or textbooks with illustrations.

You can find more of my reading preferences below in the “Favorite Books” section.

Postage stamps! I love the artwork, the history, the cultures, the textures and colors. I really enjoy spending hours arranging and categorizing them.

I love naked postcards! (Postcards sent through the post, not inside an envelope)

Please visit my Flickr site! You can use all my photos in your own work and projects. If it’s a photo of someone else’s artwork, or if you’re not sure if you can use it, send me a note either through here or Flickr and I’d be happy to clear it up for you. I really do love to share.

Favorite Music

I love just about anything with a beat! I studied music theory in college and it's amazing what goes behind the sound.

I love hearing music from all over the world, in all different styles.

I love Andrew Bird, Imogen Heap, Dido, Everything But the Girl, Black Eyed Peas, Regina Spektor, Dave Brubeck, Ddendyl, Sophia Urista, They Might Be Giants, and many many more.

Favorite Books

The Neverending Story by Michael Ende was my first "favorite" book. It is still one of my favorites. It's very complex, much more so than the movie, and it was the first book I ever got angry at; I threw it across the room when I was 12. The main character started to make bad choices, hurting his friends and falling into the hands of the antagonist... That book takes you up, down, and all over the place. It's a good fantasy book, and also a good soul-searching book.

I love anything by Patricia Mclaughlan , E.L. Konigsburg , Douglas Adams , Ursula K. LeGuin , Patricia A. McKillip , Orson Scott Card , Madeleine L'Engle , Alice Walker , Greg Bear , Donna Jo Napoli , Terry Pratchett , and Nancy Farmer .

I also loved The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston and any book that envelops you in a culture not your own. This would be different for everyone, but that's what's great about sharing and reading: you get to experience a little bit about someone else's life.

I enjoy sci-fi, fantasy, interesting biographies, juvenile fiction, and juvenile fiction from other countries.

I love any books about fermenting food, like sauerkraut, kimchi, etc. I really enjoyed Real Food Fermentation, by Alex Lewin, and Wild Fermentation, by Sandor Katz.

Favorite Crafts

I'm into digital fabric printing (Spoonflower, Feebeedee) and collage applique, I love pattern and color, which also leads to a love of photography, and stained glass. I've just begun to explore digitally generated art, which creates itself after you give it a few guidelines. Here are some good sites:

Processing.org

Generative Art Flickr

Favorite Things

I have lots of favorite things; treasures from garage sales and thrift shops, art, music, and books that make you think, fabric, zines . I love zines .

LIght aqua is my favorite color. Light aqua, lime green, greeny teal, blue spruce, olive, and all that together works.

I love zines and writing, so send me a bit of something you wrote, either on a card, in a zine booklet, decorated with art and stickers, etc. Thoughts are good.

Natural body care things are good. I like lavender, eucalyptus (wow, I'm amazed that I spelled that right), patchouli, ginger, and rosemary. I like musky scents far more than fruity ones. No food scents please!

I do love candles, in the musky scents.

Comment: Ohmigoodness - what a beautiful treasure you sent! I've always wanted to make my own books but never really figured it all out. I just love all the pages and how you've tucked little goodies in it. And I just adore the cover! Reminds me of the books I used to read to my children when they were little! Thanks so much - I find something new every time I pick the book up!
Response: Wonderful! Take a look at Sealemon’s coptic stitch tutorial on youtube. I have to look it up every time I make a book, but I think she explains it pretty well. She’s got a lot of other book making tutorials, too!

Comment: A lovely swap! I adore the handmade journal... I have never seen the unicorn cereal! Loved reading of your times spent with your daughters, all of the projects you are working on for your home, and craft projects and art techniques you are trying. All sounds lovely. I love thrift shopping and I love gardening and growing veggies on my patio as well! Love your doodles through the journal and all the great ephemera and extra stuff you included.
Response: Wonderful!

Comment: It finally arrived and wow Phoebe, such an amazing little precious chapbook of your work (and the letter was equally enjoyable). I loved your poems (Orchid Accessories!) and am thrilled you took the time to look up (and liked!) some of my favorite poets as well. I love that we have so much in common...would you like to do a private swap of something poetry-related? Have a wonderful day and thank you again!
Response: I would love to!

Comment: So much to say, so little room! First, I loved reading your lists! You went so far beyond what I expected 😊. I love your drawings and I'm glad that my swap inspired you so; the books are fantastic and Velma put a smile on my face! Second, the extras/ephemera. Way to make me drool over the ad for bookbinding machines! I really want the automatic gang stitching machine, but I doubt my boss will buy me one for work. Also, the pizza receipt --what is a tuna treat pizza?!? It sounds delicious 😊. Anyway, this is a swap that I'm going to keep looking at for awhile and keep finding something new. Thank you!
Response: *laugh* Yaay, success! Tuna pizza is really popular in the Netherlands. It has onions and other toppings, including little tart, spicy green olive things called capers. I love it!

Comment: Girl, I only have three letters for you OMG!! Lol THIS IS SOOOOO AMAZING! Not only am I amazed how above and beyond you went, I’m beyond impressed with all the details!! I have literally flipped through this about six times in a row and I keep finding something new to catch my eye!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! you really REALLY paid attention to all my likes and found amazing ways to incorporate them! I know I could just keep going on and on about this, but that’d take a couple hours to read! (Ps: those washi’s are super cool too! I keep wanting to use the blue one w/ stars but it’s so pretty I’m having a hard time letting myself use it lol)
Response: Grin! I love it that you love it. I loved making it. I love hearing about all the stuff you love. Can we get a Mutual Admiration Society? lol
