Favorite Crafts

Resin, polymer clay, junk journaling, mixed media, Cricut crafting, acrylic painting, card making, scrap booking, mold making, some jewelry. Slowly learning water color.

I've worked (a few years) as a professional art instructor at a local paint and sip type studio, I've taught at Joanns and Michaels both (and will never do that again for either store). You name it, I've probably taught it - except for anything to do with a sewing machine. :) That is one frontier I have not wandered into yet.

About Me

I live in Phoenix, love Halloween & Christmas, and making others happy with my art. I do a little of everything to keep from being bored. 2 cats, full time job, 2 kids, no husband anymore ;). 1 is halfway through college, the other is a senior in high school. I was furloughed earlier this year from a 7, almost 8 year long job, and just recently started a new job - so wish me well there.

I hope to be able to go back to college and do the midlife career change thing, but we will see how the next month goes at the new job first.

Favorite Books

I picked books because books. Too many individual titles so I'll just go with some of my top authors off top of my head. Gena Showalter, Sherilyn Kenyon, Kresley Cole, Diane Gabaldon, Anne Rice, JK Rowling (I still have to list her due to my everlasting love of Harry Potter - I DO NOT agree with any of her political views however). Anne McCaffrey, are some of the big ones. There are many others as well. I love many many authors found in Kindle Unlimited - dozens of which are self published.

In terms of genre, I mostly go for escapist fiction, be it historical, paranormal, or fantasy.

HALLOWEEN

I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!!! Not the gore, but everything else about it. Traditional, gothic, creepy cute "spoopy", vintage, ALL. OF. IT. :)

Craft Supplies - GOOD

What I would appreciate: Unusual or vintage ephemera (post cards, signs, etc) (I adore Tim Holtz' style) of any holiday. I scan them in and reprint them so I never use the original. Washi tape samples are good. Trims & Ribbons are good. Stickers! yay Stickers! Anything Disney, Harry Potter, Halloween, christmas - all appreciated. unusual buttons, charms, anything small and flat that can be used in mixed media is welcome too. Paper ONLY if it is a pretty, cool, holiday specific, vintage, or a handmade by you background...cause thats always cool!

Atc's Memory Dex cards, bookmarks, greeting cards - anything like that that's handmade I will treasure and keep!

Napkins - YES YES PLEASE Heidi Swapp branded items - YES YES PLEASE Tim Holtz branded items - YES YES PLEASE Tonic studios, Graphic 45 papers - all YES YES too please.

Bookmarks - I collect them so any size, type, style, handmade or storebought...YES YES PLEASE

Fantasy - this is the one area of paper items I will always say yes too. doesn't matter what type of fantasy, it's always yes.

I LOVE DRAGONS. I LOVE UNICORNS AND OTHER HORSE LIKE CREATURES. Anything to do with these I will squeal with happiness like a little girl.

Items like a sheet of basic stamped images that I can color in - that would be cool! thats different!

patterned tissue paper and decoupage / collage paper also are ok please.

Non paper items: um... ask? I can't think of any right now.

I will update this list as I think of more things to add to both

Craft Supplies - Please No

What I really DON'T need: BASIC paper pieces. I have way too much of those to begin with. Please. Seriously. I am drowning in them. I have more cardstock than I can use in a lifetime, and a stack of 12x12 paper pads that is LITERALLY 4 feet tall. I own 2 Cricut machines, so unless what you have is super rare or one of the exceptions listed above, please keep it and send it to someone else that is still building their stash up. I am trying to clean mine out some LOL.

Please, no overtly religious items. I am not religious - I have my personal spirituality and I am good without the bible verses, crosses, etc.. Please save them and send them to someone that would use them, and not just toss it in the trash. :)

book pages - I have a collection of about 12 vintage, damaged, and well used books ranging from old encyclopedias to novels found at the dollar store. I have enough book pages to last me till next century :)

I will update this list as I think of more things to add to both

SWAP INFO

I have been working very hard to keep my rating at all 5s, and have one or two cards come back to me from an October 2020 swap because I didn't put enough postage on them. OOPS! So If you are still expecting a card or something from me from then, Please message me, chances are it was just returned back to me or lost in the mail. I participate in swaps both here and on Facebook, in 8 years of doing this (mostly on Facebook) I have only ever missed 1 swap - due to a nasty case of strep throat 5 years ago. So please, contact me first, I will bend over backwards to make it right for you.

Additionally, I LOVE sending extra goodies out with each swap - sometimes I get a bit carried away - but I try to make each thing I send out over the top and something I would love to recieve. Any questions - don't hesitate to ask.

Any swaps I host, and there will be a more than a few as we head into the holiday season, I will ALWAYS angel if needed. No questions asked.
