I am Mama to 3, amazing, creative grown children, with 1 grand baby 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, 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 vintage fabrics, trim, lace, buttons. Since I quilt and create Altered books, along with make books of all kinds ( and pretty much everything I do I sneak in some kinda of fabric or trim ha!), I have a room full of beautiful fabrics and all that goes along with it. This is separate from the studio, yeesh. I know many of you have the same and I just wish I had twice the amount of hours in a day to play and create!! This is why Swap Bot is so fun to me as I love to share.
Likes ~ 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 :).
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 and too much art to make for that to happen.
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.
