I'm taking an extended break until sometime in 2019-new commitments will impact my ability to craft for awhile. Hope to be back soon!
I live in hot southern California with my wonderfully nerdy husband and dogs. I love art and am always trying out new projects. I have a major obsession with Halloween, and spend most of August, September and October crafting the props I use to scare the neighborhood children on Halloween night. I also love anything spooky, whether it be ghost stories, creature sightings, or haunted places. I am also that person, when she spots a dog,that will squeal and point and immediate want to pet it and give it kisses:) I particularity love Pitties with their big blocky heads and Pomeranians with their fluffy tails.
Horror, mysteries, Halloween
I enjoy papercrafts, perler beading, painting, drawing, paper mache, really any craft I come upon I will try and probably become obsessed with it. Not a fan of journaling but I love the "smash book" concept of a bunch of random thoughts, art, and favorite things all together in one crazy book. I am a dabbler, going from one type of project to a completely different project the next month. I really enjoy making large scale Halloween props (zombies, carved funkins jack o'lanterns, headstones,etc). My latest ongoing craft project is a haunted dollhouse, complete with a seance room and vintage Halloween party decor.
I love horror movies, my absolute favorites being Black Christmas (the original, not the remake!) and Trick R Treat. My husband introduced me to the Italian Horror directors ( Argento, Fulci) and I love the giallos of the 1970s and 80s. I also love the pre-code Hollywood movies of the 30s and 40s; The Thin Man being a particular favorite. Barbara Stanwyck and Myrna Loy are my favorite actresses. Star Wars is also a big favorite, the Clone Wars cartoon series being the best. (My favorite character is Ahsoka) I like Disney movies Hocus Pocus, Up, The Princess and the Frog, Wall-E, Big Hero Six. Best animated movie though? Hands down-The Iron Giant
Dogs, especially Pitbulls, Vintage Halloween,Halloween props,Limericks, Ghosts, Bigfoot, The Loch Ness Monster Beading, Smash books, Drawing, Watercolor, Cemeteries and their history, Vintage advertisements, Vintage Disneyland (Esp. Haunted Mansion)
X-files, Stranger things, Firefly, The Clone Wars (the apprentice lives!) Call the Midwife, Veronica Mars, The Flash, Arrow
I have always liked Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Deadman, Zatanna, Oracle and Constantine. My new favorite series is the Batwoman series. The art in that is incredible.
I enjoy Batman: The animated series and DC animated movies-especially Wonder Woman and Justice League: The New Frontier.
I enjoy the Marvel movies, but can't get into the comics.
