About Me

UPDATE I have missed swapping so much that it is time to get back to it....So Let's do it!

I am a Christian woman, who loves altered art and creating little works of art to send to people. I have been swaping for a few years now and I am faithful to completing them and sending high quality items. It is never my intention to flake and if I do, please let me know and I will fix it as soon as possible.

I love art, music, stickers, stationary, Planner supplies, Postcards, Photos, and learning about different cultures and traditions. I am a bookworm and love quite evenings at home, either reading or trying my hand at a new art project. I am a subscriber to "Sumerset Studio" Magazine and I love the art featured in it and my copies are full of dog-eared pages (Marking projects I would like to try). I am also a Big Disney fan, especially "Beauty and the Beast". I love receiving beautiful handmade items.

As for music: I love classical, contemporary christian (Casting Crowns, Rebecca St.James, Plus one, and more), Operas, Musicals, relaxing celtic (I adore the Celtic Woman group). I can't stand loud music or cursing.

Favorite Television

Doctor Who!!!!! Once Upon a Time, Grimm, Warehouse 13 (sad that it is off the air), and Sleepy Hallow.

Favorite Crafts

I love ATC's, Designing my own postcard and stationary, Scrapbooking, Altered Books and objects. I am still learning techniques so I will not claim to be a great artist. I love what I do, even if it is not of the highest calabour.

Favorite Movies

Disney's "Beauty and the Beast", Hellboy, Enchanted, Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Van Helson, Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, Rocky Horror Picture Show (Especially the Time Warp), Lake House, Dracula 2000, Phantom of the Opera, Star wars (all of them), Seven Brides for seven Brothers, Vanity Fair, Little Women, Pride and Predjudice, Narnia, and a whole bunch more

Favorite Color

I loved the color purple since I was a baby. But I also love blue and Perewinkle. I am open to recieving items of any color, so don't feel like it has to be purple in order for me to love it. As long as the colors go well together then you are fine.

GIRL! You are such a sweety! This card is fang-tastic! I LOVE it, thanks so much for thinking of me and sending it!!! Did you get those stickies at the dollar store? The reason I ask is because last year I got some of those, well similar ones, and this year they didn't have them! But they are better this year, I got a kick out of the 'Stayin Dead' one! Now I've got staying alive stuck in my head though:P Thanks so much for everything what a way to make a girls day!!! ♥
