Hello and thank YOU for taking the time to look at my profile!
PLEASE CHECK OUT MY BLOG AT: www.thecanaryscupcake.blogspot.com
I am currently working at a fabulous little place called HOME. I am a stay at home mother of a wonderful and highly spirited 15 month old boy.
I was a United flight attendant for many years, and am now enjoying the stability of having a daily routine.
I am described mostly as being eccentric, out going, opinionated and zany!! I have filled our small home with lots of interesting eye candy! When people come to our house for the first time, they usually say WOW. My husband and I both have very eclectic taste... . I love anything vintage... cards, fabric, handwritten letters, etc., doll heads, BLYTHE dolls, photos and scrapbooks. I also love Hello Kitty and have been a HK fan since 1975. I have been to the Hello Kitty amusement park in Japan, have rode in many HK taxi cabs, I have jewelry in all price ranges adorned with Hello Kitty, I have a Hello Kitty tattoo and I even tried on a tacky HK wedding dress while searching for my perfect wedding gown... butI didn't get it!!! HA! I also HEART peacocks, kewpie dolls, storks, fairies and gnomes, birds, skulls, skeleton keyes.. the list goes on and on! I I have been "hired" to make tiaras and party hats for friends and children's partys... I also enjoy scrap booking although I scrapbook on a more edgier side.
I love anything edgy and slightly twisted in a "dreamesque" way ... altered art/mixed media style. In one breath I will say that I love "sweet" pink shabby chic items and in the next breath I will say I love dark slightly twisted items, too. I wait patiently (ok not so patiently) for the SOMERSET STUDIO magazines to come out each month and then pour over just about every page. I subscribe to several ezines and enjoy learning about new techniques.
I like just about all music. And I love how certain songs can take you back to specific times in your life. If I had a "super" power it would be the ability to really SING. I still have daydreams of being in a smoky bar, looking drop dead gorgeous, and walking up to a piano and starting to play and sing while the man who broke my heart is drowning his sorrows at the bar... especially after he hears my awesome voice!! LOL!!! ONE THING THAT IS HUGE FOR ME is that I prefer to listen to vinyl. I love albums, and my husband and I have spent many a Sunday listening to our extensive record collection. I am really hoping to give our son the joy and appreciation of listening to old albums, there is nothing like it!! Although I do cheat and have a ZUNE!! Its difficult to play a record and drive!!
Wicked, the Twilight Series, The Life of Pi, Water for Elephants, The Witching Hour.. and I am always open to suggestions...I am actually doing the book crossing club, too. And swap-tree!!!
I ADORE the theater, way more than the BIG SCREEN. I have seen a lot of plays and productions all around the world, including productions at the Sydney Opera House. I recently had the opportunity to see WICKED in LA and it was phenomenal!! I also really like Cirque du Soleil. The first time I saw "O", it was like being in the best dream I have ever had! I love the interesting tone that Cirque sets and how they portray the dark side of beauty!
Alice in Wonderland, Hello Kitty, Kawaii stuff...
