About Me

I live and work in Austin,Texas and am so glad to have found swap-bot! It has helped build confidence in my creativity and art in a safe environment. Each swap I receive makes me smile and learn.

I used to usher at three theaters and love concerts, plays, musicals, opera, and dance. I like almost all music. Have been in a book club for 10 years and like to read everything.

Love movies and try to see all the best picture nominees before the Oscars every year.

I enjoy making junk journals and junk journal like greeting cards. Have started making ATC's and altered playing cards.

Things I collect: playing cards, jokers, postage stamps, interesting matchbook covers, ticket stubs, things for junk journals, items for assemblage, collage papers, double five dominoes, bookmarks (from independent bookstores, libraries, and museums), and vintage ephemera...

A very few of My Favorite Things (not in order):

The great outdoors, botanical, woodland animals, birding, pretty scenery, waterfalls, armadillos, monkeys, Egypt (especially Egyptian baboons), vintage Hawaii, burlesque, interesting paper, Pegasus, cats and kitties, art, artists, and art museums, art deco, dogs and puppies, Star Trek, postcards, rabbits, word play, gardening, flowers (especially morning glories and daffodils), kayaks and canoes, rivers, irreverent humor, languages, travel, Mona Lisa, Matisse, the Orion constellation, images of animals playing cards, clouds, ukuleles and guitars, geology, crystals, mineralogy, vintage everything. Will pretty much like anything you send and will love anything that you make.

What makes me smile like a Cheshire cat - a freebie bookmark from an independent bookstore in your area.

Don't care much for...food items, religious themes, Hello Kitty, princesses, Disney, foam stickers.

Comment: OMG! Where do I begin! πŸ₯° I love the journal you created for me. I was so well put together in my favorite color and butterfly theme. You did a fabulous job and It was your first time creating one. You gave me some new ideas to use. I like the way the center was a pocket, which helps to hide the thread on the center page. I don’t always like leaving that exposed. The papers you used was just perfect. Thanks so much! I could go on and on. As you probably can tell I love handmade journals. Sometimes I go to buy one and I don’t b/c I prefer making it myself. Stay safe and be blessed.
