I am Mama to 3, amazing, creative grown children, with 3 grand babies to round out the fun.
I can be found meandering the beach in search of Seaglass and whatever else the ocean gives up. I live on the Coastside which is paradise. I never seem to stray far from the water.
I love to create ~ Art of all types, Jams, chutneys, butters, pickled things, liqueurs, ect. I love making these with my sister, which is one of my most favorite things to do. Plus I get to hang out with my sister ~ Awesome!
Reading is hand's down my most favorite thing in the world. Love books ~ Love the smell of old books too :). Basically, if its a book, I will most likely read it :).
I adore fairy tales. Growing up, I read them like they were going out of style, and then over and over. Even with flashlight under covers. Love books like A secret garden, The little princess, ect.
My favorite fairy tales ~ Snow white and rose red, sleeping beauty, little red riding hood, princess and the pea. Along with story's of the sea and mermaids.
Pride and Prejudice ( all of them) Sense and sensibility, Terminator, Practical Magic, The princess Bride, Top Gun, Breakfast Club, Indiana Jones, Fried Green Tomatoes, Risky Business, The Abyss, Fairy tale themes movies and a good action or romance to round out the fun. Love a good 80's movie haha. Wait, those might all be above:).
New Girl, Alias, Chelsea Lately, Anything Baby Birth wise, Quilting Arts, The big bang theory, PBS. Oddly enough I also watch car repair shows.
Quilting ( traditional, Amish and miniature), Needlework ( redwork, greenwork, bluework, french knot work), Stained Glass, Altered Arts, Altered Journals, Bookmaking, ATC's, Encaustics, Plaster Work, Jewelry Making, leatherwork.
I love, love, love vintage fabrics, trim, lace, buttons. Since I quilt and create Altered books, along with make books of all kinds , pretty much everything I do I sneak in some kinda of fabric or trim. I have lots of beautiful fabrics and all that goes along with it. This is why Swap Bot is so fun to me as I love to share.
Likes and Loves~ I'm pretty easy. Favorite Colors: Green, nature colors, earthy tones. Any color really goes, but my least favorite is bright red. It has its place though :). Im learning to love it more.
I adore all types of ephemera. Vintage photos, oddball bits and bobbles of papers and vintage lace trims, buttons, ect. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Allergies ~ I'm highly allergic to wool. Like, the down for days with migraine kinda allergy. Makes me sad because there are some amazing things to do with wool!
Also, Almonds and Bee's. Odd, I know. But really, can be the death of me ~ Thank goodness for Epi pens as there is to much art to make for that to happen.
Note ~ I do have pets, so please let me know if you are allergic to anything. I want to be sure I respect any health concerns you may have. Although my art room is not generally a hang out spot for my pets. Still...I care about you!
Food ~ I am Vegan. Have been vegan for a long long time. BUT I of course cook for my family and friends who are all over the board, so I'm not close minded to anything.
I promise to always strive to make your swaps extra special. I hope to make someone smile or add a little sunshine to their day. Just sayin':).
I also promise to touch base should something crazy come up and I cannot meet timeline. I only had this once when I was making something really special/handsewn and just needed one more night into wee hours to finish. I did let my swap partner know and communicated. And at very start of joining swap bot~ 1 international postcard did not make it to its intended gal. I imagine it was either my writing or international mail. But I made it right immediately. So please know if you get a note that is typed up, take no offense. I have not the most beautiful writing as I age.
