California working artist/instructor--
and have 3 beautiful girls, and 3 mangy, good for nothing cats-
update In October my sweet oldest daughter just had my baby grandson Henry...He is a corker. Sweet and cute and never cries and he's my new bestest love.
*Love to travel
*Love to be with my family
*Love all things weird and wonderful
*My philosophy is that I need to fit a lot of crazy living into my time on earth so I have memories to keep me amused in the old folks home between diaper changes.
*Love spring and seeing the world come alive- it also tells me summer's coming- my favorite time of year!
*love soft french bread and clam chowder when I'm sick (and also for Crapsuey to sing soft kitty to me)
*Love my teenager all the time but especially when shes not being a "teenager" but my baby
*Love my older daughter all the time but especially when she comes over from being at work and I know shes given hope to people dealing with cancer because thats who she is
*Love my middle daughter all the time, but especially when I can feel her looking down from heaven.
sigh I have a new puppy. Olive Pearl a very good girl or so says her tags...Me thinks she might have been a circus dog in a former life. She stands on her hind legs and does flips when I come home. In short...shes more dog than I deserve to have.

I'm whispering here--- reality...and travel- I hate to admit I love all the vh1 "searching for dysfunctional love" shows as well as any on BBC America Bizarre foods is another favorite-The Graham Norton show, French and Saunders, Absolutely Fabulous, Biggest Loser.
My absolute go to(s)- Big Bang Theory and Bizarre Foods
I'm a working artist/instructor so I "do" art all day- my media of choice is colored pencil because where my art is concerned Im a control freak :)
Love ATC cards since I discovered them-I'm hooked!
Love to have old old photos to use on them (any subject) old buttons, charms, findings etc to glue to them- anything antiquey is great!
My all time favorite type of books are fiction or non fiction on unusual subjects : some I have are lucid dreaming, postmortem photography, mourning rituals- anything strange and crazy (Thank you to crescendo for my two newest favorite- Bad knits, and the history of salt-har!)
Trashy love stories ( the trashier the better :) )-
Old books- pre 1900 are great...doesnt matter if its english as long as its pretty...or interesting...
I haven't done the book dismantling as yet...but if I found one with interesting script and illustrations- Id be all over it regardless of condition :)
I was always a soft metal girl- poison, skid row, all the 80's crap I still love-
I don't like- Rap
I would be thrilled to receive any of these :)
T-shirts (xl) with strange and wonderful fronts- logos, weird pictures etc (New or used- I love the softness of an old t-shirt)
side show items
small antique (cork type) bottle
Funeral (mourning) items
tiny treasures ( I have a box of these and they range from beautiful polished rocks, tiny pieces of wonderful costume jewelry, gorgeous buttons, glass globbies, crystals, tiny dolls, etc...my daughter loves to look through the treasure box)
small black travel bibles
anything blinged out :)
old photographs (I love those with children sleeping or people doing unusual things)
Stereoview cards ( especially those with weird scenes)
the old 1/2" thick records ( I have a victrola)
Old Rosaries ( especially the ones with black beads)
anything strange and unusual- my goal is to have a house that when people walk in they look around and say "what is THAT??"
Strange jewelry (especially anything black)
Just recently I got some wonderful homemade soap and it was heavenly--so Im now adding that to the list
Books on strange and unusual subjects
Anything about Coney Island, especially the old time Coney
A glue pen ( the kind you use with glitter- can't find them here!)
I love to try snack foods that are specific to different countries, especially anything kind of bizarre
Once I got a box of sugar from London that was multi colored crystals- I loved that stuff!-
Also love the rough brown sugar lumps you can get in France and other parts of Europe-
Love white chocolate and dark chocolate, but not so much milk chocolate-
Love savory type snacks- especially things we don't see in the states-
I collect Victorian Mourning items, especially jewelry- and Victorian angels. My pride and joy is a ceiling angel from an 1850's church- I am an antique hunter and a thrift store nut. Anything strange and unusual is a must. I am not crazy about cutesy ( like hello kitty) although I totally respect its collectors.
I think Francis Bacon is the greatest artist ever born and if anyone has anything of his they'd like to part with I would be thrilled.
LET ME SAY THIS- I love just about anything I've gotten- the work and effort put into it is awesome! I am so glad to be here and want to make everyone happy----talk to me...let me know who you are- I will do my best to make something you like- Work with me and I'll work with you..if theres a problem let me know...Im good like that :)
Im finding that sometimes there are folks here who want to jump and rate low...Im not sure what causes a person to do that because that would be my LAST resort. I'm more about finding out whats going on....bad stuff happens to people all the time- heck LIFE happens, and we should all be understanding. It's not ABOUT rating folks low- its about having a good time and relating right?
FOLKS WHO HAVE FLAKED ON ME:
Egads I hate this but I want others to know so they don't get flaked on- its so disappointing!
indigored for the Im a collector swap- That was a disappointment since the swap I sent to my partner cost a total of 57$
Have a clean screen day!
Go Kitteh! Go Kitteh! GO! GO! GO Kitteh!
