Favorite Crafts

I have taken a very long break from Swapbot, but I am back! I miss the excitement of getting something in the mail that was created just for me. I hope to create a few swaps & just have to re-familiarize myself with software.

CARDS, Scrapbooks & ATC's. I crochet, embroider & used to macrame a lot of items, but its been awhile. Some jewelery making & painting, too. CARDS, did I mention cards, thats my favorite. I would like to learn to knit, but it looks a bit harder than crocheting & I just haven't had the time or opportunity.

I just started a fairy garden! They are so magical. I have a big oak tree in my front yard & a picture window where I can see the fairies. It is very simple and in the beginning stage, but I can see it turning into something very enjoyable,

About Me

I really like living in sunny Florida. I think I'm solar powered. Have always enjoyed working with my hands, although I've never felt very artistic, until I started papercrafting. I love color, texture, pattern and find it very satisfying to put a card together, give it to someone, and see their positive reaction. I love children (they're awesome, expecially mine), landscaping/gardening and a good dirty vodka martini! I'm a born again geek, always trying to learn something new and would like to go back to school.

Favorite Music

Old Rock (David Bowie, Led Zepplin' Jimi Hendrix)

Smooth Jazz (Boney James, Rippingtons, Dave Koz, George Benson)

New Rock (Gorillaz, Disturbed, Korn, Godsmack)

Classical music

Not fond of country & western, sorry

Favorite Movies

The Trap, Breakfast Club, Jurassic Park, ANYTHING with Clint Eastwood (he used to be HOT), ALL of the Lord of the Rings, Labyrinth, Shawshank Redemption (suck at spelling), Con Air ( Mr. Cage is HOT,too) The Matrix

Favorite Books

The Hobbit, The Plagged Dogs, Watership Down, Clan of the Cave Bears (awful movie, excellent book) anything fiction/fantasy based I seem to enjoy more than say, bios or novels, but I read those as well. I am also into instructional manuals, weird, huh? I definately read all of the instructions & count to make sure all the parts are there. I like alot of magazines, too. Not as big a commitment as a WHOLE book.

Favorite Television

GAME OF THRONES

Discovery channel, PBS, History channel anything that can teach me something. I typically don't watch a lot of television, I would rather be making something!

Swapping

I am really enjoying Swap-bot! I have completed several swaps and it seems my partners liked the items I've sent. I know I AM so happy to go to the mailbox & see that envelope or package with something that was choosen or made for just me, by someone who is into crafting as much as I am. It's a wonderful thing and I am addicted!

Favorites/Things I like

Favorite things; I guess I would describe my style as clean, sophisticated, graphic, classic. I love PURPLE, children, my children, long haired kitties, green plants, flowers, orchids, sleeping in on the weekend...love it! Recycling and always passing on serviceable items that you don't need any more, to someone who does. Random acts of kindness, patience, listening, compassion and helping others when they need it. Not with cash, more like helping someone move, cutting their grass, making a meal for someone who is feeling under the weather. Seems we don't do this as much as we used to.

WISHLIST

I LIKE;

  • purple, every shade from lavender to eggplant
  • bazzill card stock
  • papertrey ink stamps & products
  • spellbiners nestabilities
  • copic markers are awesome!
  • pens ( all kinds, expecially purple ink!)
  • stamps, wood, clear & red unmounted (even the 99 cent ones )
  • kitchy sentiments like "GOT CAKE"
  • patterned paper (small print, like 6 X 6 packs)
  • fairies
  • fairy garden items
  • flowers
  • bling (self adhesive rhinestones)
  • butterflies, anything butterflies
  • stationary, especially hand made
  • wink of stella sparkle pen
  • zig clean color real brush pens
  • coloring with Crayola crayons in my princess coloring book

NOT so favorite

Just because I have listed something here that I don't like, that does not mean I cannot appreciate it or admit that it makes an impact, it is simply not me :o] please don't be offended. If you've meet the swap requirement, I always rate a 5. I really do not like red, or neon colors (unless they are under a 1969 camaro) When it comes to Papercrafting, cards, atc's

I DON'T LIKE;

RED

Neon colors

country/western style

extremely juvenile themes

very dark, abstract Salvador Dali type style

I believe I will be thrilled to receive something in the mail, specifically for me, that IS NOT a bill, no matter what you send :o] I'm just sayin'

Comment: Lynn, fabulous card! I am taking it to work tomorrow to share with a friend who is crazy about that Stampin up dress form die. She will love it as much as I do! The card you made me was stamped with a witches hat and the outside envelope a similar witch looking into a cauldron. Are these Outliner's stamps? I love them!
