Information on BodyWriting with Pamela Underwood
Geography Professor, Zoo volunteer, artist, community theater actress and avid reader. I have been married 29 years and currently am fostering 2 cats for a friend who is travelling internationally. I was born in the Year of the Dragon and enjoy Asian motifs. I live in SoCal and also appreciate Day of the Dead and Frida Kahlo imagery.
Please do not send me anything with a religious or political theme and I will do the same for you :) I have no allergies to commonly swapped items.
I find all colors of the RAINBOW inspiring!
Fall 2018: I am back on the site to divest of my ATC collection. Hoping angel for anyone flaked on.
I won @OrigamiGrace ATC WTA game in February 2008 and enjoyed seeing my mailbox overflow! Thanks to everyone who participated!
I am not actively swapping at this time, but my MO is to watch swaps I THINK I want to participate in, and hope to be inspired and start creating before the sign-up deadline. If I don't have a strong idea by that time, I won't sign up. That means I watch a lot of swaps but only join a few. I used to make make ATC in series--I had a monthly F2F artist group that I brought ATCs to, so I made a minimum of one (10-16) card series each month. I am often inspired to combine multiple swap themes into a single motif. I always rate if the sender includes info as to which swap something is for and what their swap-bot name is. I only give hearts based on the swap item itself, never for "extras".
I primarily watch documentaries and shorts.
I mainly swap ATCs. I sew and do fabric crafts (art quilts, etc) and enjoy fabric-craft oriented swaps, especially the Wish Flags and Goddess Dolls. Outside of Swap-Bot I do pine needle basketry and hard shell gourd crafts (musical instruments, especially). On a larger scale, I make body prints (like my avatar)--see the link above for more info on those.
More recently, I'm doing dot mandalas on rocks.
Bob Dylan, Todd Rundgren, Classic Rock, Chick Music (Natalie Merchant, Sarah McLachlan , Anna Nalick), show tunes
5th Element, Jaws, Shawshank Redemption, When Harry Met Sally, While You Were Sleeping, The Abyss, Gladiator, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Paint Your Wagon, Kate & Leopold, You've Got Mail, Blade Runner, Hunt For Red October
I read mostly hard SF, time travel, and historical fiction. Some of the best books I've read in the past few years include Robert Sawyer's Calculating God, Audrey Niffenger's The Time Traveler's Wife, Kim Radish's Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral, Kevin Brockmeier's The Brief History of the Dead, Yann Martel's The Life of Pi , John Twelve Hawks' The Traveller & Life by Gwyneth Jones. I like Minette Walters, too. Tana French's Dublin Murder Squad is a new favorite and I still read Donna Leon's Guido Brunetti books as soon as they come out. I am starting Mark Billingham's Tom Thorne series.
Most of these are from the early years on Swap-bot. It's been a while since I was flaked on.
