Favorite Crafts

I love to sew and would like to swap projects that involve sewing like mini quilts, themed projects. I'm very interested in making pin cushions and fabric postcards. I love to watch Quilting Arts and Sewing with Nancy. I dabble in painting fabric and sketching women's faces. I also love baking gourmet desserts and am fascinated with cupcakes at the moment. Right now, I'm trying to learn different sewing crafts, so I'm joining swaps that expand my sewing education. I'm also making lap quilts for my local Cancer Foundation.

About Me

I'm an administrator in the insurance division of a large school district. I'm married and between my husband and myself, we have four adult children and four grandchildren. I like art and crafts of all kinds. Chocolate is my favorite food. I have allergies to strong smells, so things with potpouri are really not for me.

Favorite Music

Since I am originally from New Orleans, I am a Blues addict. I like Jazz and Country but get really bored with them sometimes. I particularily hate the talk, talk, talk dj's.

Favorite Books

I love detective mysteries with strong women as the main character. Since my ride into work is one hour each way, I am really into audio books. I get to do about one a week.

Favorite Television

The Big Bang Theory, Ace of Cakes, Quilting Arts,Raising the Bar, Discovery Channel, Ice Road Truckers, Deadliest Catch, Design Star, American Idol, America's Got Talent, So you Think You Can Dance

Favorite Movies

Chick Flicks and end of world movies. Day After Tomorrow, War of Worlds, Sahara, The Librarian Series.

Favorite Colors

I love deep colors and really don't like bright neon colors. I like black mixed with colors, browns and beiges. I also love aqua and blues and greens.

Deep reds are great, but I really hate bright pink. I try to like bright pink, but just can't do it. I stand in front of the pinks at the store and can't bring myself to buy any. So I pretty much like most colors except neons and bright pink.

My kitchen is light gold with copper colored accesories. So colors with burnt orange, dark golds, deep browns go well in there.

Wish List


Buttons -Unusual

Wings - Butterfly or Fairy

Ephemera - anything that can be used to create

Comment: I love the ornament and it will make a great addition to our tree! Thank you so much. I am dying to know what you used for a base...at first I thought it was cardstock but it seems too cushy..will you share your technique?
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I made a sandwich out of a canvas material, buckram and wonder under and then I cut the design out of that. So canvas, wonder under, buckram, wonder under, canvas. I makes it like heavy cardboard. Have fun.
