About Me

I am a happily married mom of two kids, ages 17 and 20.. I am a freelancer, property manager, personal assistant, and I help my husband with his home improvement business.. Other than that I enjoy gardening, photography, and creating art. I love to shop at second hand stores, antique shops, and garage sales! I collect retro advertising, sea glass, postcards, ATCs, and craft beer labels. I am really into kitchy stuff and pop culture. Love trendy things from the 60's, 70's and 80's (hence my alias, RetroChik). I like peace symbols, disco balls, art deco, comic art, shag art, retro video game characters, neon, Rubik's cube, etc....

Favorite Music

Pink Floyd, Bad Company, Seether, Theory of A Deadman, Fuel, Greta Van Fleet, and Foo Fighters,

Favorite Movies

Star Wars, Back to the Future, the Terminator series, Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit Trilogies, Planet of the Apes, Marvel comics movies (especially Thor), and John Hughes films. I am really a huge fan of science fiction and fantasy related films.

Favorite Crafts

Zentangling, ATCs, Mosaics, Journaling, Mixed Media, Gelatos, Watercolor and Acrylic Painting, Doodling, and Resins.

Favorite Colors

Periwinkle, majestic purple, royal blue, fuschia. In a nutshell, blues, pinks, and most of all purples.

Postcards

As far as postcards go, I especially love:

-Odd Shaped Cards -Pop culture advertising -Psychedelic art (think 60's concert posters) -Movies (especially 70's & 80's) -Music/Musicians/Bands/Album Covers -Peter Max -Josh Agle (Swag art) -Comics -Greetings From.... cards -Big Letter Places

Specific cards I would also like to have: -Hoover Dam -Woodstock Festival -Badlands -Red Rocks -Area 51 -Crater Lake -Roadside attractions like strange looking buildings, world's largest ball of twine, Paul Bunyan and Ox, for more ideas you can check www.roadsideamerica.com

Swaps

I absolutely love the Star Trek stamps, Batman stamps, and Barnum & Bailey Circus Vintage Poster stamps.

I also like craft beer and wine labels, steampunk stuff, coins from other countries, handmade mini envelopes, zentangles, charms, Smash book items and ephemera.

HEARTS, I give them out based on how much effort you put into a swap, but also would gladly give you one if you included small broken pieces of stained glass, sea glass, old broken tile pieces, or old broken dish pieces for my mosaics. I am really wanting to put one together right now, but I am having a hard time finding unique colors for the piece I want to do. Would love shades of blue, teal, aqua, purples, and pinks!

If you need some ideas for Sender's Choice type ATC swaps, I love Sugar Skulls, Steam Punk, Zentangles, Mixed Media, Peace Symbols, Retro Art and Advertising, Retro Circus Art, and Tiki or "swag art" themes.

Dislikes: Tea, gum, non-chocolate candy and gummies, note pads and sticky notes (I have way too many and really do not need any more), teddy bears, folk art, country themes like cows, apples, ducks, that kind of thing.

Favorite Artists

Josh Agle, Peter Max, Stanley Mouse, Roy Lichtenstein, Wes Wilson, Andy Nortnik, Rick Griffin, Dali.
