Hi! My name is Gwenivere. I am a thirty something mom living in the USA.
I have 4 children and my husband is active duty Army.
I like to cook, be outside in nature and have fun with my children.
My favorite colors are purple, blue, turquoise and white.
I am an avid art journaler plus I create cards, wreaths and the occasional smash book/scrap book.
I have many crafting specialties I'd like to learn such as typography/calligraphy, sewing, mixed media on canvas, glue books, quilling, watercolor, acrylics, and photography/photoshop.
I am ever learning new techniques and mediums in the art world. I LOVE to see what other artists create so I collect handmade things. From ATCs to paintings, drawings to zentangle. Send me something you've made!
Books are dear to my heart. I used to work at a library and loved every minute of it. I am more a mystery girl with a lil science fiction and biography mixed in here and there. My bookshelves are also full of self help and art books. I love library cards and due date cards with pockets. My fav!
Shows I like include Bones, Agents of Shield, Lie to Me, Strange Things and Stranger Things, Quantico, Rizzoli & Isles, and Baggage, the Zoo, baking shows like Cupcake Wars, Cake Boss & Cake Off. Also Skin Wars and certain reality tv
I love a ton of movies but some of my favorites are The Patriot, The Avengers series, Save the Last Dance, Terminator series, Transformers, Guardians of the Galaxy set, etc. I like sci-fi and action so anything with aliens or end of the world scenarios. Not a fan of too many romcoms or kids movies.
Music inspires me. I wish I could read music better so I could play piano better but I guess that's a someday goal. I like Gwen Stefani, Joss Stone, Adele, Micheal Buble, BeyoncÃ©, and classical music including opera. I love Claire De Lune, Ava Maria, Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables, Mozart, Beethoven and many classic concert pianist pieces. I also love Christmas music even tho I donâ€™t Christmas craft at all. Pentatonix Christmas is on repeat all December long at my house:)
General loves and preferences:
I love GIRAFFES (including giraffe print) and my other fav animals are elephants, peacocks, cats, dogs and otters. You guys know what a fennec fox is? so cute!
white and dark chocolate, CANDY!! (My waistline will tell you my love for anything high in calories)
anything involving desserts,
Strawberries, pineapples, coconut, and most fruits
itty bitty babies,
old Victorian anything,
paisley and damask designs,
Tim Holtz, 7 Gypsies, Prima Marketing, Graphic 45, Jolee, memory keepers
Old black and white pictures (of ppl, cities, etc.),
rubber stamps (especially faces and flowers)
vintage vintage vintage! Books, paper, music, ephemera, clips, washi, note cards, etc. Early 1900s - not ads from the 60s or later nor childrenâ€™s books
I would love more ephemera or things to add to my art journal. I currently use acrylics, lots of rubber stamps, sprays, washi tape, die cuts, buttons/keys/etc., ribbon, markers, gelatos, paint pens, stencils and any cool design background paper. I can use unique buttons, stickers, used stamps, etc.
I love to add ticket stubs, postage stamps, and stickers to my pages. I can always use more of these things, ephemera and embellishments. I am in love with making ATCs and receiving them. I like anything that looks vintage or aged.
I also like the '20s, '30s, '40s, and '50s fashions. I like sewing papers and designs even though I myself do not know how to sew. (my knowledge is: sew it to a paper and that's it) I am attempting to make a themed junk journal once I get enough supplies (and enough time). The theme is Paris fashion/sewing
Christian or anything religious,
Christmas or Holiday themes,
