Favorite Music

i enjoy a variety (so i don't get bored). folkie, bluegrass, rock, hymns, Christian, broadway tunes, children's music...

Favorite Books

love good children's stories, creative children's books, picture books, art books, vintage children's books, ABC books, etc. (I think it's safe to say that I collect books.) I don't naturally tend toward fiction books, but I'm branching out and am especially interested in reading the classics that I never did!

Favorite Movies

pixar flix, meet the robinsons, mr magorium's wonder emporium, older musicals like family band and mary poppins, braveheart, liar liar, the game

About Me

i'm a happy mama to a beautiful clan of little ones. i'm also an art lover & maker. my art includes clay, photography, & atc's. i also am incredibly interested in (but have not yet delved into) art quilts, altered clothing, sewing in general, and art journaling.

Just a note about my ATC preferences... I really love atc's that have someone's mark on them. That is, marks made by the person's hand (drawing, painting, sewing, etc) make the card for me. I just like that way more than a completely collaged/scrapbooked card. A combo of the two techniques is wonderful, too. Just my preference. Just in case you were wondering.

My Children

I have six children with an 10.5-year age span. We have tons of fun.

Other Things I Like

treasure hunting (i.e. garage saling, thrift store shopping, metal detecting, geocaching, letterboxing, sea glass hunting, fossil finding, etc etc etc), learning how things are made, snow with my cold weather, water fun with my hot weather, family history, homeschooling, travel, spain, squished pennies (aka elongated cents), words, settlers of catan, children's clothes, softball, water skiing, volleyball, watching my husband build things, the Bible, curly hair, etymology, big cities, tiny towns, positive attitudes, vintage toys, patinas, things with a story behind them, remnants, genealogy, art, layers, creative mess, Fiestaware, apple computers, geekdom, the waddle of certain animals (ducks, skunks, penguins), big ideas, listening to children explain things...

Fave Foods

pizza from my parents' pizza shop, ice cream, PA dutch cooking, frosted mini-wheats, brownie sundaes, coke floats, snickerdoodles, twin kiss, chubby hubby ice cream, shoo-fly pie, soft-serve raspberry ice cream, crinkle-cut french fries, roast beef stromboli, sweet peppers...

Artsy Interests

taking photos, making photo album & photo books (but not scrapbooking), antique samplers (cross-stitch and the like), children's art, inconspicuous tattoos (nearly hidden but not), God's designs in nature, clay, faded ("ghost") advertising on brick buildings, organic shapes, sewing (but it does intimidate me a bit, it is an interest yet to be tackled), embroidery (another i haven't explored much yet), seed beads on embroidery or dangly jewelry or lamp shades, patinas, things with a story behind them, remnants, layers, creative mess, throwing pottery...

Toys I Heart

fisher price little people (mostly vintage, but newer too - but not those bend-in-half kind), hot wheels (new or old, but must have some metal in them), vintage weebles, vintage tomy toys (wind-ups, pocketeers, waterfuls, and other mechanical-without-batteries tomy toys), kaleidoscopes (esp ones with something "different" about them), vintage fisher price peg puzzles (aka pick up and peek), any figure toy with pizza in hand, playmobil, raggedy ann, Lalaloopsies, handmade/homemade well-loved toys...

Dislikes

hypocrisy, lying, poorly made plastic toys that break within 24 hours of receipt, whining, shortsightedness, shoddy work, when people treat children as less-than-human, primitive crafts (not to be confused with ACTUAL primitives/antiques, which i DO appreciate... but lately some prim dolls have been catching my eye), prejudice, pepsi, diet drinks, disrespect...

Comment: I'm pretty sure I'm writing this rating for the correct swap, but you didn't write the swap name or your username on the card. It is an Amish Country postcard signed Becky. Let me know if this isn't your card.

Comment: Great to read about your family's food business and your personal likes/dislikes. This was kind of a strange swap, but like a secret guilty pleasure to get an "inside look"at food choices. Fun!

I updated the rules in The Bargain Boutique and asked that everyone read and sign them. Unfortunately I don't see your name so I had to remove you. If you'd like to rejoin please let me know. Thanks!
