About Me

My name is Shellie. I love all things cute!

11/29/12: I was admitted to the hospital on Nov. 5th and was discharged a few days ago. I had emergency surgery due to complications of chemo and radiation treatments for my breast cancer. I had completed most of my swaps prior to being admitted to the hospital, and have a couple I have to finish. I just need to get them in the mail. Please give me a week or so to gather them and get them sent out to you. I will also complete the ratings for the swaps I received during that time. I am stuck in bed and am working with a PT to walk with a walker, but I'm making pretty good progress. It is important for me to get your items to you and I will get them out as soon as I can.

I want to explain the 1 ratings I had...I was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer a couple years ago, which is why my last few swaps were rated as 1. Life changed very drastically immediately. Appointments, tests, hospitalizations, and chemo took over my life completely. That is why I dropped off the site so suddenly. Prior to my diagnosis I had perfect 5's. Look at my ratings past the 1s to see all the great ratings/comments. I'm back to being able to do this again. I'm currently in the process of contacting these members and making up these swaps(7/29/12).

I'm getting back into the swing of things and I'm starting to make art again. I loved swapping so much and am excited to get back into it!

I love to spend my extra time collecting paper, ephemera and other items for altered art! I have a TON! I love all things pink, cute, vintage, creepy and silly. The 70s ROCKED, although I was little. :) I LOVE CREEPY-CUTE ART like Mark Ryden, Junko Mizuno, Kukula and Yosuke Ueno.

I love animals and nature. I have 5 furry kids: 2 pups and 3 kitties! Animal cruelty puts me in a dark place. :(

My Pups:Chubbsy(long-haired chihuaha), and Poopy(shih-tzu)

My Kitties: Doodle, Snickers, and Daisy.

They were all rescues and already had their names, with the exception of my naming Doodle and Daisy (they were rescues, too!)

I collect all kinds of dolls: Asian BJDs, Blythe, Pullip, and a gazillion others.

I LOVE: minis, re-ment, ephemera,vintage things, toys, Alice in Wonderland(vintage and gothic especially), Diet Coke(I live on the stuff!), fat happy buddhas, teal, pink, Hello Kitty,Snoopy and Woodstock, faeries, steampunk, kawaii, things with faces, cute robots, monsters, animals, dolls, creepy girls, estate sales and flea markets, Poupee Girl, Ebay, Flickr...

Favorite Television

I am totally addicted to HGTV. I love decorating and remodeling and I get great ideas.

Favorite Movies

Up (my ultimate fave!), Breakfast at Tiffany's, Something About Mary, Clueless, Step Brothers, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Tim Burton flix, Office Space, Girl Interrupted, Young Frankenstein, Planes Trains and Automobiles, Star Wars

Favorite Books

The Lovely Bones, The Celestine Prophecy series, Alice in Wonderland, James Patterson, Elizabeth Berg, Anita Shreve, older Dean Koontz and John Saul

Not so fond of...

Tea, I don't chew gum,not big on receiving food of any kind, nothing religious(unless it's quirky and cool- I do like Buddha stuff), foam stickers, ... this list will grow as I think of things:)


Comment: Never sent for this swap.
Comment: So sad... you couldn't follow through... Someone else made it up and sent in your place. Not a good way to swap!

Comment: Thank you I loved it. Just a heads up, $1.50 was due in postage. My boyfriend paid it but I don't always have cash handy.
Response: Wow! I never heard of that happening before! So sorry about that! And you still gave me a heart~ super sweet!
Comment: Thank you so much!! You had perfect timing because I was having a terrible day, and when I got your ATCs and note it made me happy :) It is nice to know other people still are a kid at heart! Thanks for the little paper things too and for explaining how you made the ATCs. They turned out very cute!

Breast Cancer survivor! My best to you, may you continue in good health and bless you for getting the word out about early detection. My monthly self exam was when I discovered my lump and got aggressive treatment because I was only 38 at the time.

Twilight Saga back & Forth ATC #2
Wow, I love it! You did an amazing job :) I really love how you attached the tag. Very fun!!!

Thank you , thank you, thank you for the snail mail stamp! That was very sweet of you :) Was it that obvious that I was in love with it? ha ha ha :) It's on my craft desk and ready to be used.

Hmm, I believe the heart clip came in a set of brads and clips made by Memory Makers that I got at Michaels craft store. I will double check that next time I go in there :)

Thanks again for the lovely swap and extra goodie!!!!
