About Me

I am an easy going chick, have a unique sense of humor, very open minded, I like tattoos, my ears are gauged, I love all animals, I enjoy meeting new people, I love to learn something new everyday, I'm a child at heart (a nerdy child), game-show nut, puzzle nut (word find, soduku, fill-ins, brain teasers, cryptic puzzles all of them!) I love my parents, my Mom is my BFF, and I just try to enjoy life!

I just love to be creative, I love making things. I guess you could call me a dabbler, I have a tendency to try anything just to see how its done. However, my favorite crafts to do are paper crafts (particularly cards, ATC's, collages & stamping), art journaling, sewing, trash to treasure/recycling type crafts, jewelry making, and when I have time miniatures. One day I will learn to crochet. (trying to now)

I really enjoy making ATC's, handmade envelopes, note cards, bookmarks, postcards, I love using nicely patterned papers, I really like unique and monochromatic papers, and I use a lot of ribbon and stamping. I am not much of an embellishment person (like the flowers, and really chunky stuff), but some times I do add a few extras to things.

Why I am Here

I LOVE (a lot of things!) receiving and sending good old fashioned mail, there is an excitement and joy that comes from receiving snail mail that email will never achieve.

Also, most of my friends are not to crafty or creative when it comes to the things I like to do, I know some talented people, but no sewers, paper crafting, miniature enthusiasts, or trash to treasure types. So it gets kind of lonely when sharing stuff with people that do not understand the joy crafting brings!

Movie & Television

I LOVE movies! Just as much as crafting! I particularly like horror (go Zombies), Star Wars (original), Lord of the Rings (books and movies), Harry Potter series, Sci-Fi, Bazaar & unusual movies, (including foreign), and comedy/action type movies. I do watch a little of everything though. I'm a sucker for musicals, cheesy 50's & 60's horror, as well as the new cheesy Si-Fi channel movies! I also love old B & W movies, Audrey, Greta, and all the lovelies from that era! I am also a total sucker for the typical "guy flick" action movie!

I watch way to much TV! Some of my favorites are; Criminal Minds, Law & Order SVU, Dr. Who, Wipeout, Copper, American Horror Story, Longmire, Supernatural (I'm a Dean girl), The Killing, The Walking Dead (I like Zombies!), and The Chew. Also game shows I am a nut for them. Even the old ones that are on during the day!

I also, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the show How It's Made! I love learning things, and that show is just amazing to me!

Not to into "reality TV" that much but I do watch Ghost Adventures (they are hilarious to me), Just about any "real" survivor/survivalist type shows, like Survivorman, Man Vs. Wild, Dual Survival, Man, Woman, Wild, and so on.

Beats & Books

I like all types of music, from Beethoven to ZZtop with oldies, country, pop and metal thrown in too! If I had to pick a genre it would be a toss up between the 60's and the 80's! Huge Beatles fan, as well as Aerosmith, and Kid Rock.

I LOVE to read (like I said, I love a lot of things!), my book tastes are similar to my movie and TV tastes, horror (love earlier Stephen King, before he was hit by the car....), Science fiction, supernatural, mystery (I adore Nancy Drew!), true crime, history (especially ancient times), and the occasional autobiography.

Things that make me go YAY!

minions

Some of my other favorite things are:

  • Colors: Purple(from lavender to eggplant), Orange, Blue, and Darker Pinks. Metallic: Silver and Copper (never been much of a gold person)
  • Color Combos: Black & Orange, Black & Red, Black & Pink, Brown & Pink (Blue or Purple), Black & White, Black w/silver, monochromatic themes.
  • Zentangles (new to them)
  • Christmas I love all of the decorating, gift/card making and general warm fuzzy feeling I get!
  • I also love anything vintage (real or reproduction) from the 20's and 40's specifically.
  • I bake like a mad woman! I enjoy cooking as well, but baking is where its at for me! Cookies, cakes, candy, muffins, cupcakes, and I make a killer cheesecake! Baking and Crafting are my stress relievers, and bring the most joy as my alone time.
  • Stickers! All but letter/number! (I actually have tons of letter stickers already!)
  • I collect a random group of things, I collect trolls (the ones with the crazy hair), I have been collecting them since I was a kid, I have over 400 of them, shot glasses, postcards, charms, candles, boxes (most get altered), jars w/lids (most get used for storage for things great and small!), tins (again most get altered or used for storage), and chipboard shapes & letters (almost always used for crafts).
  • Anything Mario Brothers. One day I hope to have Amis of various characters Particularly Yoshi, Pink Yoshi, Boo, Toad, Goomba, Koopa and Bob-omb!
  • Small things! Who doesn't like tiny things? I have a collection of random tiny things, they are displayed in an old typeset drawer! They could always use friends!
  • The Minions (from Despicable Me)
  • Zombies!!!
  • Monsters (especially old school monsters)
  • Monster High Dolls! (LOVE THEM)
  • Horror Related Anything
  • Fonts (yes I said fonts) my fave place to get them 1001 Fonts (they are all free)

Halloween

I felt Halloween Deserved it's own space.

I love Halloween, and other than clowns, I love everything about it. Ghosts, witches, pumpkins, costumes, the Devil imagery, bats, spiders, ALL OF IT. From the cutesy to the gothic, to the gory, skulls, mad scientist labs. If it can be categorized as Halloween, I ♥ it!

I love the color combinations of Purple & Orange, Black & Orange, for Halloween and for everyday. Vintage Halloween, gothic Halloween, and so on! So I am always, and WILL ALWAYS, welcome anything Halloween themed! ANYTHING!

My Kids

Ok, I have no children, but I do have "babies" they are my pets. I love my animals.

I do live with my parents, so not all the animals are mine! But currently we have 11 dogs!

So MY babies are Micki (a mini Dachshund), Yoshi (a fuzzy mutt), Tiger and Cy she only has one eye! I named her Cyclopes! But she is so cute. And the newest edition (1 yr old now) a red mini weenie named Minion.

Diamond, Tiger, Patron, Mama, Toad, and Cy are pit bulls, I love this breed, grew up with them, and myself and my parents have been RESPONSIBLE pit bull/bully breed owners for more than 40 years combined with NO problems or issues, EVERY SINGLE one of our dogs were/are happy, healthy, well adjusted, friendly, loving, and socialized doggies!

My families dogs are Mini (another mini weenie dog!), Eddie (she is a pug mix), Diamond, and Patron, Toad, & Mama.

People need to educate themselves about this breed, here are a few links.

Hey, Misty! Your two handmade postcards for the "Really Good" tag came today; you're REALLY good!! They are beautifully made, colorful and a real delight...Thank you!

lorettadog on Aug 15, 2013:

Thank you so much for helping me with my problem! I love animals too (dogs are my favorite), and you're so right about pitts and other aggressive breeds - it's all about the breeding, and how they're raised. Love the quote "Ban stupid people, not dogs". :oP I'll bet that one cat rules the dogs?

spotteddogs on Aug 15, 2013:
