About Me

My address has recently changes. If you are one of my swap partners, please be sure that you have the Muir Field address and not the Goldenrod address.

I've always loved crafting and am especially into polymer clay crafts, scrapbooking, and painting. I can usually craft just about anything that I put my mind to. I am also a member of Postcrossing, so I collect postcards from all over the world and love sending postcards from my state to people around the world.

I was born in Germany to German parents and moved to the US when I was 8. In mid-January, I passed my US citizenship test. On April 14, I took my Oath of Allegiance and am now a United States citizen. Yay!

I'm 29 and married with no children - unless you count my pets. I have a parakeet named Meko, a rat named Socks, a dwarf hamster named Colonel Spazminster McWhiskers (or, Little Dude for short), and some fish.

Favorite Music

My musical tastes vary widely. I might listen to country music one day and be obsessed with Finnish Metal bands the next day. My favorite bands are Lady Antebellum, Within Temptation and Nightwish. I'm also a huge fan of 80s dance music. My current favorite country singer is Carrie Underwood. I'm familiar with a little punk music, but I don't listen to it much. The only sort of music that I don't listen to is rap. I just don't care for it.

Favorite Books

The Harry Potter series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Dhalgren, The Awakening, The Book of the New Sun, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, Memoirs of a Geisha. I love books and reading. It's hard to just choose one book as my favorite.

It is very rare that I meet a book that I don't like - Catcher in the Rye is the only one that comes to mind, actually.

Favorite Movies

The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Rent, Letters to Juliet, Pirates of the Caribbean (the first one). I also love horror movies, but I'm a total chicken and I watch them with my hands over my eyes.

Favorite Television

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (love, love, love, love, loooove), Supernatural, Pretty Little Liars, true crime television (it's my guilty pleasure), Project Runway, NCIS, Law and Order (SVU, the original and Criminal Intent).

Favorite Crafts

Polymer clay, scrapbooking, home-made beauty products, knitting, crochet, cross stitch, embroidery sewing, ATCs, dotee dolls, and decorated matchboxes.


Likes: Just about anything...I'm not picky at all.
-My favorite colors are purple and pink. -I love animals. Red Panda is my current favorite. :) -I really enjoy fantasy themes (faeries!!, unicorns, castles, mermaids, magic, etc).
-I also love ghosts - stories, pictures, etc.
-I am a huge fan of Halloween and Christmas because I love to decorate my place. -I'm also a fan of role-playing (the game kind, not the dirty kind).
-I love hand-made things in general.
-I also really enjoy getting postcards and have started a collection. I like postcards to be written on by the sender.
-I also like to learn about other cultures and their traditions, so feel free to include a little note with your favorite tradition/interesting tidbit about your culture in your swap.
-I love journals, especially hand made ones. -I am starting to collect Dotee Dolls and ATCs which should be a lot of fun. -I love socks. Socks are to me what shoes are to many women. A girl can never have too many awesome socks. (Shoe size 8-8.5)

Dislikes: -The smell of cigarette/cigar smoke, incense, flowery perfumes, strong smells - I have a very sensitive sniffer.
-I like to look at fish, but I don't like to eat them or smell them. I especially dislike Lutefisk. Who willing eats jellied fish, anyway? Ick.


If you do not receive my swap, please let me know. I will track all packages sent. If one happens to get lost, I will happily resend.

Since I live in the US, please understand that international mail may take a significant amount of time to reach you.

DonnaLeeDesigns rated for Crazy Patchwork Square # 3 on Oct 27, 2011
Comment: Will gladly change rating when I receive it. It is so sad when the swap coordinator flakes on her partner. I put a lot of time into the square I sent and was looking forward to receiving from you.

Comment: i love the squares thank you
Taisa rated for Crazy Patchwork Square # 2 on Sep 9, 2011
Comment: Unfortunately I am very sorry, but I HAVE to rate you with 3. That was anything crazy, but not a patchwork square (and the size is also smaller...) Even my table-cloth looks better. I'm really dissapointed. Say the truth, it takes you about 10 mins to make it, mmm?
Response: Well, I'm sorry that you were disappointed, but you really didn't need to be such a bitch about it. I followed the swap guidelines and met them all even if you don't think so.

Comment: Thank you so much for the Ami Chocolates! They were promptly 'scarfed up' by my daughters and found a home on her play kitchen shelves! We love them!

LunaMoody rated for Dotee Doll Kit Swap -Edited on Jun 29, 2011
Comment: Thank you for the material, ribbons and beads. I love the flowers you sent. Could you tell me what they are called. I want to get some thanks Lisa
Response: I got them from my husband's mom's stash a while ago, so I'm not sure what they're actually called. I think they're just called glass flower embellishments.

Comment: Really cute. Thanks for the extras too!
Comment: Sorry about the delay in rating - we've been busy, what with tsunami alerts on the 11th - and talk of a possible earthquake here in the NW. The town still hasn't calmed down yet. Anyway, your ATC was great, and my favorite topic - stars! I also liked that you gave me the history of the Pleiades.. Thanks so much!
Response: I can't believe that I forgot that the west coast was affected by the quake in Japan, too! I'm glad that the card made it safely. I get a little paranoid when things take a while to get to where they're supposed to be going. Stay safe! I'm glad you liked the card. I thought some sort of star pattern would be perfect for you. :)

PinkLotus on Feb 16, 2011:

Andrew Zimmeran (however you spell his name) has that show "Bizarre Foods" on the travel channel - I know if he thinks it's nasty I wouldnt go near it with a 10 foot pole cuz he eats some nasty stuff!!!

PinkLotus on Feb 15, 2011:

noticed on your profile you talked about Lutefisk - ewww!! I saw it on the travel channel and after hearing how it's prepared I dont have to smell it to know I wouldn't in a million years eat it.. lol..
