Thanks for checking out my profile!
I'm Susan & I love sending mail to people I don't know. Crazy, huh? But I know you're in the same boat as me, so here we are.
Besides that, I'm also a wife, mom, teacher, dog lover & collector of far too many art/craft supplies. My biggest hurdle to creating, is carving out the time! I believe it's important to try and do something creative daily.
I love most colors, but my favorites are pink and orange, but I also love the colors of the sea: blues and greens. Not crazy for red, navy or purple.
I'm an admitted vinyl sticker, washi tape, ephemera, & art/craft supply addict!
Probably like most of us here, I have more ideas for crafts than time. My current obsessions include art journaling with an emphasis on mixed media/collage with ephemera and doodles. I love used international stamps (especially from Japan, France & NZ ) and use them in my art journaling & to make postcards. I've got tons of them now, so no need to send anymore at the moment.
"I make art to show my soul I am listening"
"We tend to judge others by their actions and ourselves by our intentions."
Some of my favorite books are:
Many more that I've forgotten!
