About Me


I'm 26 and I currently work full-time as a master teacher in an infant/toddler classroom. When I'm not working I am usually reading, laughing, watching movies, playing with my pets, or...did I already mention reading?! I live with my significant other, two pitbulls, two baby mice, and a cat. Animals are my passion!!! I have a very sarcastic sense of humor, and am not easily offended. If you are trying to pick items for me but think something you have chosen may be too racy...think again. I love Science, with Zoology and Biology being my main focus. I enjoy things of a bizarre and unusual nature. I try to appreciate both sides of every coin. I believe Life and Death are equally important and fascinating.


Favorite Books

Wraeththu. Wool. Watership Down. Midworld. Death: A Life. A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones). The Vampire Lestat. Life of Pi. Lamb. The Dark Elf Trilogy. Animals In Translation. 1984. Shogun. Roots. Fahrenheit 451

Favorite Movies

Gladiator. The Last Samurai. Spirited Away. War of the Worlds. Bless Me, Ultima. The Lion King. Avatar. Treeless Mountain.

Favorite Television

The Walking Dead. Game of Thrones. American Horror Story. Planet Earth. Taboo. Six Feet Under.

Favorite Music

The Devil Makes Three. The Avett Brothers. Rodrigo y Gabriela. Hans Zimmer. The Wood Brothers. Mozart. Alela Diane. Mariee Sioux.

Favorite Crafts

Embroidery. Stamping. Crocheting. ATCs. Amigurumi. Painting. Drawing. Cooking.

I've recently been dabbling in flower pressing. Any tips, hints, or goodies regarding that would be greatly appreciated! :)

Things I like!

The color black, all animals (foxes are my favorite), bones and fossils, the number 27, boxes, books, rubber stamps, sour candy, zombies, stuffed animals/things, kawaii, ATC sleeves, scrapbooking paper, jacquard, gargoyles, ATCs, old military memorabilia, TADO, funky socks, washi tape, anything from different countries, pitbulls, old pictures, Asian art, lilies, orchids, all flowers really, I love art from all religions even though I don't practice one myself, candles ,money from another time or place ephemera, brads, buttons, embellishments in general, tattoos, postage stamps, found objects, amigurumi, small things, bookends, stickers, labels with weird pictures or different languages on them, bottles, vintage (especially jewelry), being outside, creepy things, surprises, bumble bees, dinosaurs, magical things, photography, the female form, and the earth. My ears are stretched to a double zero, and I would love any gauges in that size. Used are okay, as long as they're clean :) Any supplies for the crafts I put down as my favorites.

Things I don't like. :(

Things that are very girly. Jewelry that has a peace sign on it. Anything entirely pink. Texting acronyms. Sappy romance novels. Twilight.

Comment: Thank you so much for a great swap! All the books look great, i don't know which to read first! And the dinosaur bookmark you made is adorable :) It all definitely brought a smile to my face, and i will pop a letter in the post to you next week, have a lovely day! x
Response: I'm glad you are happy with it! I haven't cross stitched in years, so the bookmark took way longer than it should have, but I thought you would enjoy it. I will get a letter out to you soon!

Comment: I love your ATC! I also love Catbus :) No need to be nervous, I think it really turned out amazing and I can just hope to get another one in this series from you
Response: Aww! Yay!!! I'm so glad you like it! I LOVE Catbus and wanted my ATC to do him justice in its depiction. :) Thank you for your kind words and the rating!

Comment: I love the ladybug ATC you created for me. Such an innovative idea! And all the extras will come in handy. Thank you.

BluGinhm rated for Bookworm Bonanza! on Oct 21, 2014
Comment: What a great package to come home to last night! I love everything you sent - I hope my package is as well-liked as this one is! Did you make the book plates? They're great! The journal is lovely, as is the bookmark you made - very simple and sweet, but perfect, too. And the book! I think I saw the Pendragon series at the library once, but was too busy at the time to read it. I started as soon as everything settled in at home last night. I think it's going to be a really fun book! Thanks for all you sent - and I didn't notice until I pulled the card out again that there was a great recipe on the back! Thanks!
Response: Yay!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed the package! That makes my day :) I would love to take credit for the book plates, but I didn't make them. They are my favorites and I only use them in special books. I had a feeling you might appreciate them! I'm glad you are pleased with the bookmark. I had intended to collage both sides with dogs and cats, but after I had cut them all out and laid them in place, it just didn't feel right. I decided sometimes less is more and went with a cleaner look. Seeing as this was a book lover's swap, I am most happy to hear how you felt about Pendragon. I had been searching for the right book for you, and when I found Pendragon I felt like it was a good fit. Let me know what you think when you finish it. I may need to find a copy for myself! Thank you so much for the rating and the kind comments! I truly appreciate it!

Comment: Thanks a lot. It was really unexpectable for me to get such a card from US. Usually people from your country write something like "Now I know that such a country exists". I really appreciate it, thanks again, it will be one of my favourite cards:)
Response: I am so happy to hear that you like it. I had a lot of fun making it. My family was in the military and I know that you don't get to stay in one place forever, so I wanted to make you a little Belarus memento. :)
Comment: Got it yesterday. :) Thank you.
owl rated for Fabric ATC #3 on Aug 16, 2010
Comment: LOVE the cloth owl ATC. All owl ATC 's go into a special binder. I have collected owls, of any kind, for 35 years! Thank you for all the extra cloth. This owl is very unique. Love the use of hearts for his eyes. Thank you

Comment: OMGOODNESS! I looove the coin purse you made. The winkin cow made me giggle so loud I startled my girls. lol And the goodies inside were perfect. Thank you so much. :)
Response: I am so glad you liked all of it! I loved that cow! Thank you for the rating. <3

Comment: Thanks for the great stuff!
Response: You are more than welcome. :)
Comment: I wish I could give a million hearts! The pouch is a treasure I will use and keep, it is truly beautiful! The embroidery is stunning and I love it sooo much. Thanks! If you had just sent the pouch it would have been enough but the extras have really made my day!
Response: I am so happy to hear that it has found a loving home. Embroidery is most certainly my favorite craft and I love doing it whenever I get the chance. From the moment I saw the fabric I knew exactly how I wanted the pouch to be. It is nice to know that someone appreciates my work! :) Thank you for your kind words and the rating! :)
Comment: Awesome and totally worth the wait! the jellyfishes are so cute ^_^ I'll make good use of the book pages and extra goodies too, thank you so much!
Response: I am glad you were happy with them. Finding the right colors for the green/blue one was a bit tricky, but I was pleased with the results. Have fun with the book pages! Thank you for your patience, and for the rating. :) <3

Comment: ♥♥♥♥♥ HOLY MOLY!!! You fulfilled my fantasy and then some! WOW! You really outdid yourself and everyone else too - LOL! I so loved this swap - it's probably the best I've ever received! I just love all the jewelry items, they are my favorite! And those charms and magnets - wooo weee! I so love the quote by Jimi Hendrix :) And when I opened up the lovely rosary I had goose bumps all over! ... late - whatever - I forgive you ;) I came home from vacation, so I would never have known! What a wonderful surprise this was! You are one awesome swapper! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
Response: Yay!!!! I am SO happy I made your fantasy come true! I also collect rosaries so I knew I had to find you one. :) I was especially happy with the one I sent you because it is so different from most of the ones I have found. I'm really glad you were pleased with this swap! Thanks for rating!!! <3

Hi! I just wanted to tell you that I've put the coin purse you sent me in the whale of a swap to good use. It's the perfect size and shape for my school cafeteria lunch discount card and some change. It's so easy to take the whale coin purse from my backpack before I go into the cafeteria and carry it on the tray. I don't need to start rummaging through my backpack trying to find my wallet and then try to locate the card and then some money while everyone else is waiting and growing impatient. So thank you again, it's a great coin purse!
