Current art / craft interests

PLEASE NOTE: On May 23, 2013 - My mother, Maureen Blakeley aka "Impaws" passed away after a brave battle with illness. Any requests to join groups will NOT be answered by me (her daughter).

Oct 2011 my sister passed away on the 24th after having slipped into a coma. Please be patient if you are waiting to hear from me. Thanks.

I love to craft and love to learn new techniques. One of my recent discoveries has been paper art dolls. There are so many ways of making these dolls. I don't think I will ever tire of making them!

On July 1st, I became co-owner of the paper art and artists trading card group - ATC-Dolls on Yahoo.com. My main role for the group is to manage the databases and the swaps. We host two themed swaps plus a surprise art doll Challenge every month. I love making dolls to trade and look forward to seeing what the mail brings. In addition to the hosted swaps we also have lists for R.A.K.s, P.I.F.s, and 1-4-1s. So plenty of opportunity for surprises to arrive in the mail!

Favorite Books

Like millions of others I enjoy reading everything by J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts). I have very eclectic tastes in reading and have been doing it ever since I could grab hold of a book.

I like to read non-fiction, especially cookbooks and historical books. I like most fiction with mysteries and sci- fi, fantasy top of my list. I read some horror but not all and it is not my favourite.

Favorite Crafts

I crochet, knit, sew and cross stitch. I draw and paint, mainly self taught but did study at university and college night classes. I enjoy watercolour and painting on silk.

I'm into paper dolls and ATCs these days. I love glitter and bling.

Favorite Music

I enjoy most types of music except for rap and heavy metal.

My favourites are Daniel O'Donnell, Celtic Thunder and anything light and upbeat.

I like to listen to Cher, Chritina Aiguiller and Susan Boyle.

i do like to sit at an outdoor cafe and listen to the sweet, soulful sounds of good jazz.

About Me

I am an avid crafter, an artist and a reiki master. I share my home with a ten pound shorkie who is a real charmer and who has been nicknamed by some as "the pocket rocket".

I love dogs and cats, teddy bears, holidays, fairies and angels.

I raise tanks of Platy fish, lol, can those little guys spawn!

Not much I don't like, especially in art. I'm not fond of horror. I do like Hallowe'en. I strongly dislike cruelty.

Favorite Movies

Avatar, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Star Wars, Mrs. Doubtfire, Sixth Sense, Burlesque, ...

Favorite Television

Star Trek - all of them. I'm an original Trekkie! Sanctuary, CSI, Monk, Bones, Stargate, Steven and Chris, Little Mosque on the Prairie, At the end of my leash and Paranormal States

Wish List

I don't expect extras but since some swaps want this filled out here we go...

Art and craft supplies of any kind are always appreciated. I work in watercolour, colour pencil, pastel pencil, oil colour pencil, pastels, and graphite.

I like pretty much any theme. I'm low on paper, stickers, stamps (you really don't want to know all the nitty gritty details about the move from hell, so let's just say I lost my entire collection of stamps, inks, embossing powder, heat gun, use the words "heavy water damage" and leave it at that).

I can always use brads, playing cards, embellishments, atc precut cards, blank greeting cards, blank postcards and rokodex cards.

Comment: Oh, my! Two ATCs and both are wonderfully made! I love the vintage style and it is so creative how you cut out the figures and raised them up sort of like a shadow box effect. I love them. Thank you so much. And thanks also for the extra paper. :)
