About Me

Filling these things out always overwhelms me-

November 22, 2019 First of all, to all of my current swap partners-things are getting out this weekend-I had my credit cards stolen and am finally getting around to fulfilling all of my swaps after getting the rest of my life sorted out. I understand any ratings at this point and hope that you will bear with me as I am now working on making things right. I love doing these things and I appreciate your patience. Thanks!

Favorite Movies

Right now, The Greatest Showman and The Shape of Water are my favorite releases, but I am a huge Marvel fan and Star Wars and love action films. Love, Simon is a sweet movie. The movies I watch over and over when i need something to fall back on are "He's Just Not That Into You" "Valentine's Day" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas"

Favorite Television

I don't have a lot of time to watch TV other than when I am cleaning the house :) but I like to watch cooking shows whenever I can. Right now my favorite shows are Stranger Things, I, Zombie, How To Get Away with Murder, Handmaid's Tail, The Runaways, Game Of Thrones, Queer Eye.

Favorite Music

A true child of the 80's-Prince and David Bowie, Tears for Fears, Depeche Mode and The Gap Band are a few of my early musical influences. Now I get share these things with my kids. In turn, they have me introduced me to Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco. I also love listening to classic rock and I am a closet DeadHead. While I grew up with Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and Waylon Jennings-and still love them-I am not a fan of "new country"

I am also a huge fan of some recent soundtracks-Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, The Greatest Showman.

Favorite Books

I like to think of myself as an avid reader but it doesn't happen as much now that I am working and driving kids around. True crime and futuristic murder mysteries-think JD Robb-fascinate me. If a book is going to be a bodice ripper-it has to be a bit over the top and in the renaissance period.

I am a personal chef so regional cookbooks and memoirs of chefs are fascinating to me.

Favorite Crafts

Wow, where to start? It is easier to say what I am not-I am NOT a scrapbooker, but I collect ephemera and gorgeous papers for ATCs and junk journals.I am not a quilter, but I collect old clothes-especially saris and old sweaters-to upcycle into scarves and other things. I collect old jewelry which I use to make new jewelry.

General Likes and Dislikes

I am currently in an orange phase that has nothing to do with it being Autumn currently. I love its quirkiness. My kids call me a hipster because I like all things bohemian, but I was a hippy before anyone found it trendy-I actually like macrame and string art and all things natural. And beads, I love glass beads of all sorts. And old books and old unusual stamps. I like steampunk and gothic things. I like taking pictures of architecture and flowers and turning them into little digital art pieces. I collect food/recipe postcards and playing cards and smashed pennies from the places I visit.

I am not into really "cute" things-puppies and kitties are not my thing. I don't use a lot of stickers of any sort, but washi tape is fabulous. I am not into anything religious and my tastes for the holidays run to the vintage and natural side of things rather than sparkly and shiny side of things. Think-more the trees and candles and less glitter and glitz.
