About Me

I have a 2 harlequin Great Danes who I adore.

I enjoy cooking but hate the cleaning up.

I like trying new things.

I enjoy taking photos.

I like bright colours but don't like purple.

I think hot air balloons are beautiful.

I love animals.

I enjoy driving.

My favourite flowers are tulips.

I don't like coconut.

I prefer winter over summer.

I don't drink coffee or tea.

Favorite Music

My favourite band of all time is Duran Duran but I love music in general and will listen to just about anything.

My music taste in general is wide and varied.

Favorite Books

I love reading and will read just about anything, fiction or non fiction, new or old.

I don't like Mills & Boon type sop, anything political or westerns.

I've recently discovered FanFiction and have become somewhat obsessed.

Favorite Movies

I love the old black & whites you find showing in the middle of the night.

Of the new stuff I like mostly feel good but don't mind action, drama and sometimes a little horror.

I think Vincent Price was great.

Favorite Television

I'm not really great with TV but that has more to do with me not being able to commit more than anything else.

When I do watch I like craft, cooking and crime. I also have a soft spot for some reality programs.

A couple of my all time favourites are Wilfred (Aussie version) Sherlock (BBC Series) & Work of Art: The Next Great Artist.

Favorite Crafts

I really enjoy creating and trying new techniques whatever that might be.

I started crafting a million years ago doing cross stitch and it's just gone on from there.

I've done a few different types of embroidery, some quilting, had a go at knitting, scrapbooking and felting.

At the moment I'm playing around with altered art & mixed media bits and pieces doing some classes and really enjoying getting my hands dirty.

Comment: Cool postcard, Mel! It always amazes me how quick mail gets here from Australia. Winter! How cold is cold? I can't really boast about cold on the West Coast, it never gets truly cold like Eastern Canada. We skated in Ottawa at -29*. Brrrrrr.
Response: -29!!!! I think the night I mentioned was about 6. I will never complain about the cold again. Really glad you liked the card. Thank you for the fantastic rating.
Comment: Love the list!
Response: Glad you like it. It was certainly a lot of fun to put together.

notme78 rated for QUICK Book pages swap #41 on Mar 27, 2013
Comment: Thanks for the bookpages. Just an reminder, please write what swap it is, so that the reciver don't have to check to figure out which one it is. Also the envelope was a little destroyed, but all of the pages was there i think.
Response: Sorry have been away from swapping for a while and didn't even think of it. WOW it was just a flat envelope. I sent 30 pages so hopefully you still got at least the 10 required.

Comment: Amazing! This is one of the most creative ATC's I have EVER received! I am so impressed with your moon! What did you use for the base? I see the little seed bead sprinkles, but what is the base? I'd love to know the technique. The city silhouette and the "twilight" colored paper just all went together so well. I love it. Thank you for creating something so lovely ... AND... thank you for ALL those extra goodies you sent along! I will use them!
Response: Thank you so much. I am really glad you like it.

Response: Thanks. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for me to go ballooning. I've been following them for years but have never had the courage to go up and don't think I ever will.
