About Me

I have a blog if you want to see what kind of ATCs I create 👆 Just click on the link that says "My Website" :D

I am a 30 year old mama married to my hubby of 10 years from Northern Indiana. I dabble in all things creative but my favorites are mixed media ATCs and paintings.

I'm a nerdy, strange girl who is obsessed with the supernatural, sci-fi, fantasy, vampire romance novels, video games, kawaii stuff, and skull stuff.

Favorite Music

I mostly listen to a random onslaught of different types of music. Here are a few genres to give you a good idea of what I mean: French Dance Electronica Indie Indie Alternative Indie Electronica Folk Alternative Rock Punk Ska J-Rock J-Pop Swing / Big Band Lounge Parisian Electro Alternative Metal Dubstep Garage Bands Classic Rock Classical Music

The list goes on the longer I'm alive, because I really love music.

A few of my favorite things..

Chocolate. Postcards and letters. Pretty paper for Junk journaling Antique ads, pictures, cards. Nostalgic stuff. Bits of foreign language pages / newspaper. Japanese / kawaii stuff. Studio Ghelbi stuff. Fun and different pens. Unique stuff. Stickers. Pictures of odd things (where you look at it and go hmm..) Pictures of signs / stickers of signs. Old Tyme photographs. Washi Tape!!! Used postage stamps. Rubber stamps. Stationery. Puppies. Babies. Cute mushy pictures (like holding hands or kissing couples.) Steam punk. Victorian era. The flapper dress. The 1950s pin up girls Pictures of Birds and Wings.

I pretty much am, to coin a phrase from a recent profile I read, a paper whore. Any paper. Like even smut can be beautiful as long as it isn't distasteful. Like Greek art, boobs were once proudly displayed and I think that boobs are perfectly acceptable.

My Dislikes..

Inconsiderate and intolerant people. I dislike people who judge a book by its cover. I am not all that I seem. In fact, there is a lot more to me than meets the eye.

Flakers and Sticker Slappers. It drives me INSANE to invest so much time in making beautiful display worthy ATCs only to receive a piece of paper with stickers on it. I won't tolerate it anymore and if you are thinking of sticker slapping ATCs for me I will rate you poorly, especially if the swap says specifically "DO NOT sticker slap" and you do it anyway. Its the cheap way out of investing time to which YOU made an agreement to do!

Speaking of Flakers:

Kristin Knorr (Kiin) owes me a 50 song lyrics journal. It took me two months to compile and mail mine, only to not receive a journal or even a message back even a month after it was supposed to be mailed.

Mary Ghek (Maryghek) failed to send any of her swap partners an email for my Passport Playlist swap, after she insisted on joining. I failed to prevent flaking in my swap as a Coordinator. She is henceforth banned from my swaps in the future.

Favorite Crafts

Artist Trading Cards, Smash booking, DIY projects, Up cycling, Altered Art, Mixed Media Collage, Mail Art, Altered Object Art, Art Journaling, Digital art (gimp editor) Crochet, Handsewing and embroidering, Found Object Collages, Pop Art Paintings, Sketching, Zentangles, Silkscreening, and LOTS lots more.

Favorite Quotes

"The god of light wants us all burned. The drowned god wants us all drowned. Why are all the gods such viscious cunts?!? Where is the god of tits and wine?" - Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces" - Helen Fielding from Bridget Jones Diary

"None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are" - Anne Rice from The Vampire Lestat

"If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him." - John F. Kennedy

Favorite Bands

Stromae, Suburban Kids with Biblical Names, Salt N Peppa, Queen Latifa, Beck, Halestorm, Chromeo, Ida Maria, Auf der Maur, Skillet, Girls are Short, Vitalic, Feist, Silversun Pickups, Portishead, Chumbawamba, Chameleon Circut, Weezer, The White Stripes, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, Yelle, The Knife, Shout Out Out Out Out, She Wants Revenge, CAKE, MxPx, Five Iron Frenzy, Junior Senior, Alice Nine, Gackt, The Brilliant Green, Asian Kung Fu Generation, Puffy Ami Yumi, Dir En Grey, Ayumi Hamasaki, The Blur, Ellie Goulding, Freezepop, Ladytron, Lily Allen, Madison Avenue, Metric, Mr. Scruff, Prodigy, Sonny J, Telepopmuzik, The Bird and the Bee, The Cure, The Pretty Reckless, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Yoshida Brothers, Trentemoller, The Dresden Dolls, Mukala, Havalina, The Electric Eels, The Butthole Surfers, Royksopp, The Yoshida Brothers, and also MANY more that I can't think of right now.

Comment: Hi Nicole, Thanks for the great playlist. Many apologies for the delay in rating -- I've been out of town and although I could access Swap-bot on my phone, doing ratings on such a tiny screen is hard so I waited till I got home. I enjoyed your playlist and particularly enjoyed the Brazilian songs -- it's the country out of your list that I know least about so I was pleased to get a taste of it!

Comment: I liked this card a lot. Thanks so much!

Comment: You were supposed to "Make some kind of fabric bag or fabric envelope to store the dolls in" but I don't even care about that, those worry dolls were AMAZING!! I absolutely adore them! I couldn't pick a favourite, each one is so precious and they have put such a big smile on my face! Thank you SO very much! Seriously, I love worry dolls, and if I saw ones like these in a shop I would hand my money over and skip out of the store squealing with joy =D I will treasure these dollies, though I wont be putting them under my pillow for fear of damaging them. <3<3<3<3
Response: Im so sorry about the bag x.x I totally missed that! Im glad you liked your worry dolls :)

Response: Im glad you like it :) I hand drew the tardis, painted it with watercolor and then colored it with colored pencils for depth. I used marker for the swirly background :D It was a lot of fun to create. The tardis wasn't as hard to draw as the daleks were. :)
