About Me

Hi! I'm Cindy...

Single Mom to a terrific 15 yr old son...I enjoy all kinds of paper crafts ~ cards, tags, ATCs, journals, hand decorated & digitally designed papers. I love gift wrap & gift bags, tissue papers, handmade paper. I grew up reading, drawing, and practicing my handwriting! Always been a paper junkie :) I don't sew but would love to start. My dream is to make a living selling my creations, but I haven't started down that path yet. I always wanted to be a greeting card designer & create a line of cards, notes, & calendars. Should have gone to work for Hallmark! Perhaps someday.

Favorite Music

I primarily listen to Alternative Rock. But I like a lot of variety, depending on my mood. I use Playlist.com - if you do too, find me there as geminibwilder

Favorite Movies

City of Angels; Twilight; Harry Potter; The Count of Monte Cristo; A Walk on the Moon; Legends of the Fall; The Notebook; Chocolat; Practical Magic; Serendipity; 28 Days; 50 First Dates; Kingdom of Heaven; The Lake House; The Wedding Planner; Moonstruck, Wanted,.

Some fave actors; Jim Caviezel, Sandra Bullock, Will Smith, Diane Lane, John Cusack, Ashley Judd, Denzel Washington, Holly Hunter, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Nicolas Cage, Jennifer Garner, Johnny Depp, Zooey Deshanel, Robert Downey, Jr.

Favorite Television

Being Human UK, Weeds, True Blood, Shameless, Stargate Atlantis, Firefly, Saving Grace, The Closer, Grey's Anatomy, In Plain Sight, Friends, Will & Grace, and yes, American Idol & Dancing with the Stars!

Favorite Crafty Things

Rubber stamped and paper crafted greeting cards ~ Artist Trading Cards ~ Gift tags, Bags & Packages ~ Tumbled Marble Coasters ~ Collage Art ~ Deco Books ~ Postcards ~ Art Journals ~ Handmade Envelopes ~ Handmade boxes ~ stickers & rub-ons ~ wire & beads ~

Favorite Colors

sage greens, plums, shades of khaki & olive. deep red, aqua, pale teal, buttery yellow, soft gray, turquoise, faded chambray blue & sometimes pink!

Favorite Books

'The Secret Life of Bees' by Sue Monk Kidd; 'The Time Traveler's Wife' by Audrey Niffenegger; 'The Lovely Bones' by Alice Seibold; 'Harry Potter' series by JK Rowling; 'Magyk' series by Angie Sage; 'Child of My Heart' by Alice McDermott; 'Twilight' saga by Stephenie Meyer; 'The Ranger's Apprentice' series by John Flanagan. Michael Scott's "Tales of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel" novels are fun...and Lois Lowry is amazing! I very much like books from the Young Adult section - they're quite adventurous!


I can't be around strong scents; incense, heavy perfume & spicy/flowery candles give me migraines. I don't like lavender, minty or citrus fragrances; cigarette smell is just revolting (I quit 11 yrs ago, yay me!). I don't love cartoons in general, but find some characters cute. I am not into nudie or x-rated themed things or 'gross' humor. Don't drink coffee or tea; and I don't eat hard candy, gum or mints.

Things I love, Love, LOVE!

All kinds of papers & rubber stamps. I was a big Stampin' Up! customer for over 10 years, so I have a huge stash of stamp sets & all their cardstocks & inks! And now they have changed ALMOST ALL of their COLORS!!

Ribbons, buttons & embellishments. Brads & fancy metal paper clips. Postcards. Books, notepads & blank notecards. Funky envelopes, children's artwork & handcrafted pottery!! I love patchwork quilts & am currently in search of a new one. ( I wish I could make one.)

I seem to collect journals, quotes, postage stamps, photo frames. Yankee Candles, magnets, keychains, little sewn pouches & purses.

Daisies, hydrangeas, hosta & ornamental grasses. Alternative Rock/90's Grunge music, tote bags, car decals, bookmarks, Ultra-fine Sharpies. I love tulips. and toenail polish :) LOVE Emily the Strange, Mary Englebreit, Ann Taintor, Amy Brown faeries, Kathy Davis, Flavia drawings and Don Li-Leger paintings.

Wishing you a Happy June Birthday birthday from Raven and the Monthly ATC Swappers Group

Kathleen on Nov 1, 2008:

I was hoping the Halloween ATCs would get to you in time! :) I'm so glad you liked them, especially the little ghosties, who were a last-minute addition (and actually, made from the newspaper I was using as a surface to paint on), and I was so glad I added them to the card.

kerrlouise22 on Oct 31, 2008:

Thank you for granting my October wish! I love the buttons you sent - they are going on to my jacket immediately. The colours are so great, especially the green recycling symbol. And, of course, I love the message of both buttons. Thank you!
