Favorite Books

I'm an avid reader of nearly anything but, mostly I buy tons of craft/art books from amazon each month and enjoy reading all the new ideas and seeing such wonderful works from fellow artist. The gallerys that are found in most craft magazines and books serve as wonderful sources of inspiration for me.

Favorite Movies

I'm not a great movie watcher unless the tv is serving as background noise with LMN movies and CNN/FOX news.

Favorite Crafts

I started about a year ago playing with poly clays and trying to teach myself to sculpt. By this date, I've bought nearly all books on clay for jewerly, sculpting faces, boxes, ect.

A great artist that I've been following is Laurie Mika. Her book, " Mixed-Media Mosaics: Techniques and Projects Using Polymer Clay Tiles, Beads & Other Embellishments" has been a great place for inspiration and I've completed several of the projects in the book with great sucess.

About Me

I am old enough to know better and mostly still to damn nosie to resist the danger.

I look forward to gaining new art friends and sharing ideas and crafts. To this end I hope all of my projects are well received.

dolls

I'm interested in making dolls of any type. So, please email me if you would like to do individual swaps. I am now experimenting with grotesque dolls. This is defiantly outside of my realm but I love to try new things. My other fascination is BJD's. I've been doing a lot of reading on how to craft your own and I am about ready to attempt making this lil darl'ins.

likes

I can appreciate and see whimsy & value in almost anything. So, just about any craft supply, stickers, felt, wood items (even damaged) I will fix It., pendulum boards, canvas, wire,

Gothic-any items

Supernatural- any items

Religions of all kinds- Buddha, Hinduism, Wiccan, Pagan, Shinto’s, ECT. I.e. charms

Charms of all types i.e. fairies, mythology, butterflies, Wiccan, Celtic crosses, beads any colors

Halloween / samhain at any time of year

Steampunk- art, gears, ideas, clipart

Frida

Dia los Muertos

Oddities

Any and all craft products All craft books and ideas i.e. pamphlets on how to’s, idea sheets ECT.

Talented people (they are hard to package in boxes they squeal to much)

Ocean/ all items originating from there

Wildlife- all of it. But NO snakes

Feathers- natural

All colors esp. aqua’s any shade

New friends-esp. creative ones

Zettiology

Art dolls-all types

Eyes, hands, body parts from clay, paper, plastic ECT. Even bones from birds if they died naturally.

poly clays all colors and sculptures, faces or even things made from molds, geez, I could go on forever with likes cause everything is likable to some degree and other items has some creative use. You just have to find it.

If you’re sending items, anything will be received and appreciated for your kindness the most important thing to me is the note that shares something about yourself and your art.

Oh yeah a word about this, I have NO allergies.

Dislikes: 1. People that DO NOT COMMUNICATE. If something came up just pm and let me know that you can’t send. Life happens and that is fine. But I really don’t like chasing someone around to figure out why they have not sent.

  1. Host/Hostess/ Group Founders, that DO NOT watch after the groups welfare and letting known flakers in on the swaps.

  2. NON Raters (didn’t your mom tell you to say thank-you) and Flakers (you basically stole from the swap group and your partner.)

Commitments

I will honor all of my swaps and will do work that I am proud to send and not just good enough to shove in the mail and scratch it from my list. My work is very personal, so, my heart and soul is put into each piece and I want you to like it or at least have appreciation for the time spent.

If time permits, I would be happy to angel for any group for any problem folks that can't seem to find their post office. Host or Hostess's just email me and I will let you know if I'm available.

I promise to rate my partners as soon as I open the package or envelope.

My Grading: Extras are always nice to receive. I think the most of us enjoy trinkets and I’m no different but in my grading I leave it strictly to the piece for its grade. If you did the swap and met the criteria then you will get a 5. If the piece shows hard efforts were put forth then definitely a heart will be awarded as well. I’m not looking for perfection I just want the piece to reflect that you’ve taken care in seeing it was done to the best of your abilities.

If you don’t contact me and just leave it up to me to figure out why the project doesn’t arrive in a reasonable amount of time, then I’m nearly forced to give 3’s since I don’t know any other answers. Just a lil communication would go a long way in this situation.

Lastly 1’s will be awarded for just a plain NO SHOW. I will change it when something arrives and again some type of communication would really help.

Comment: You have not sent on my doll or SassyStephenie's doll, both of which were sent to you by me. You were to send these to Maggie 249 and she never received them.There has been no communication from you despite many attempts via private message, regular email, and letters to your house. You also still owe me a doll from a previous swap. You marked send and you never did. This has been a very unfortunate, vey unsatisfactory round robin! There are many people that you have hurt by your failure to communicate. You could also have sent messages through your daughter. It is an unfortunate situation for all.

Comment: You are such a nice person and good crafter and felt a real friendship with you, but I want to archive this and your daughter says you are better and we hear nothing. I was told this was sent at least twice and nothing. I sincerely hope that you are okay.

Comment: I really HATE giving this one. @Moonillusions is a wonderful swapper. I am only giving the 1 because I rate by the SB rating system. She has been sick (unexpectedly) and was unable to send. The host of the swap angeled this for me. When @Moonillusions returns and then sends her swap within the next couple of weeks, I will rerate this a 3 (more than likely a 5), simply because she has been in contact and is NOT a flaker. I am so sorry Pamela...I hope you are feeling better very soon. *MUAH*

Comment: You marked this swap as sent then pm'd that it was not sent. I never received my queen art doll. You were the coodrinator, too, on this swap. I am greatly disappointed, especially in the lack of communication.

Whatever happened to you? I had such hopes for a fun person to swap with. First I lost out on the first mojo doll then I lost out in the mojo doll round robin. It is too bad this never did work out.
