I am a writer, an artist, and a crafter. I am into faeries, mermaids, and other mythical creatures. I also collect blank journals... I have an unhealthy addiction to coffee, coffee cups, and cats!
I am a mother of a beautiful girl, Andromeda. I have three cats and one dog. Happily married to a wonderful, equally nerdy man. I write fantasy/paranormal romance novels.
I love all kinds of music. My taste ranges from classical, jazz and blues, to new age, to rock, to goth, to metal. I love Steampunk music like Abney Park. My favorite band/singers include: Portishead, Birthday Massacre, Assemblage 23, Abney Park, Lana Del Rey, and LP.
I love classical novels and plays such as the works of Lewis Carrol, Cyrano de Bergerac, and novels by Colette. I enjoy contemporary fiction, espcially fantasy novels. Those are also the kinds of novels that I enjoy writing. I also love going to used bookstores and buying old hardback books that I usually will never read lol. I also love fairy tales, folk lore, and tall tales. I am also revisiting an old love of mine, romance novels. I like the darker romances, paranormal romances. Gena Showalter, Kresley Cole, JR Ward, etc. I also do enjoy some young adult novels. I love the Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor; Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones; Wrinkle in Time- Madeline L'Engle; Wizards of Earthsea- Ursela K. LeGuin; Cronicals of Prydain- Lloyd Alexander, Enchanted Forest Chronicals- Patricia C. Wrede; and The Song of the Lioness by Tamora Pierce.
Writing, poetry, doll making (im teaching myself), jewelry making, decoupaging, collages, watercolors, soap making, lotion making, body oils, making stationary. I love handmade things. I also love Zentangle! My main focus right now is paper crafts, travelers notebooks, shaker pockets, and happy mail. I love learning new techniques and new crafts.
My absolute favorites are: Legend, Labyrinth, Neverending Story, the Goonies, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Lord of the Rings, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Tombstone, Castle in the Sky, Nausicaa of the valley of the wind, practical magic, Thor Ragnarok, the new Star trek movies, the alien franchise. I also love old movies in black and white and technicolor! lol I also enjoy old westerns.
I like science fiction and fantasy shows like: Dr. Who, Stargate, Xena, Sanctuary, Star Trek, Killjoys. Supernatural, expedition unknown, American gods, outlander, Babylon 5.
I like: weird and unique things, gothic things, classic things, make-up, dark things, happy things, small and large, soft and rough. I love coffee. I love dark chocolate, I love baking. I like strange religious things like small idols and jewelry. Cute things and ugly things. I love old things. I love tea pots and want to collect them, I also love birdcages and old keys (not the modern house keys but the old skeleton keys.) I also love things with celestial themes of sun, moon, and stars. I love old maps and star charts.
I dislike: rudeness, lazyness, and closemindedness... luckily those are hard to send in the mail. HOWEVER... I do dislike when people are snobbish about what they send and are sent. I think people forget that not everyone on here has a lot of money or has high brow elite artistic skills. And what one person views as art may not be what another does.. but that doesn't mean that it is any less worthy or is crappy.
