Favorite Crafts

Sewing for crafts and garments Quilting, both traditional, appliqué and art quilts. ( I recently took a class from Larkin Van Horn and am currently playing in her world) Soap Making Beading Needle work Containers (fabric boxes and bowls)

About Me

As a single mom who is now an empty nester, I am beginning a new phase in my life with excitement and eagerness. This is the time I am getting to explore my interests, dreams and passions. So far I am enjoying both traditional crafts and the new to me fiber arts. I also enjoy working in my yard and grow edible landscape using herbs and vegetables where I can.

Favorite Music

I enjoy most music styles so long as they do not "scream" at me. My mood or activity usually dictates what I choose to listen to. I am however, a forever Elvis fan.

Favorite Books

I read mostly for pleasure and escape. I love books that make me feel connected to the characters and is almost a startle to return to "real life". My recent top favorites have been, Hotel on the Corner of Biter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. This story takes place where I live, which has an added element for me. I also was able to meet the author and the daughter of the only character that was real. Great read, which I highly recommend. I have also enjoyed Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen; These is My Words, by Nancy E. Turner; Ten Cents a Dance, by Christine Fletcher and Griffin & Sabine by Nick Bantock.

Favorite Television

I must admit to being a reality TV fan, with restrictions. I do not like overly obnoxious shows, but do enjoy Survivor, Project Runway and Loggers. I like to watch how other people live their ordinary lives. I also enjoy a good comedy.

Colors and misc

I am currently in an orange/green/brown/purple phase. Think Amy Butler. I also love the current style trend of birds and birds on branches. Other things I enjoy: Ladybugs Rabbits and Easter Bunnies Flowers Purses Unique Containers or re-purposed items for containers Unique Beads and Buttons Vintage stickers, cards and postcards and photos. I love wondering what their lives were like and who they were.

Dislikes

I do not care for Vanilla scented items and prefer natural vs artificial scents. I also do not like dark, morose or skull themed items. I am more of a sunny bright person.

Comment: Perrijo-- I have not received anything as of yet.. i will gladly change this when I do get this swap.. I was really looking forward to this swap,as it was not a cheap one. You PM'd me on the 4th saying it was sent out THAT day.Then I see you hit sent on the 8th.. The 10th you Pm'd me saying it was on its way that you sent me something I had on my dislike list and you were re sending.. Please let me know what is going on.. I have no other choice but rate a 1,as you have not responded to PMs or even been on SB since the 10th of May. I seriously hope you are ok... UPDATE on 5-26-10 got the package. Thank you. But it did not meet swap requirements at all.. Although it was fruit themed, they were not in a fruit themed bag or container... Some people worked really hard on this swap,,I am disappointed,but,hey,at least I did get it.. Thank you June 26 2010 Thank you for the 2nd package. It was late but I will give you a 5. Thanks for the re-send.Great package
Response: Vicky, As I told you in my email, this was from the first package that had to be repacked because the postage was going to be $24. I am sorry you are so disappointed. I have mailed your replacement package along with the missing container from the first package. I hope you enjoy your treats.

Comment: Hello Perri, Thank you for the package of goodies you sent for the "Scavenger Hunt: Under the Sea: Swap. Your presentation of the things you put together fore the scavenger hunt was really eye-catching. It made me want to go investigate all of what was inside right away. I look forward to using the "Under the Sea" supplies you sent in future crreative endeavors. As well, thank you for the ATC and other extras you sent as part of the package. Know that those items that can be used in future creative endeavors will be used in that way. Hope we have more opportunities to swap with one another in the future. Have a nice summer.

Response: Thank you. this swap was dear to my heart because that was my mom's pet name for me. When she was passing, she told me she would send Ladybugs to me from time to time to let me know she was watching over me.
