"Life is full of love and beauty and magic"
Hello! My name is Diana. I'm a mailman and artist/graphic designer. I love both of my hats! I have always loved creating. I wanted to be a mailman since I was out of school. So I get to live in both of my worlds, happily. I am also trying to become a better artist and hone my skills. It's difficult to be creative and work 48 hours a week. I want to be creative and this is a good outlet to do that.
I love where I live, the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina! Beautiful here! I am so happy to have been able to come back here. I've also lived in Ohio (born there), Florida, Arizona and South Dakota.
I was playing around with Photoshop and manipulated some pics...
I bought a sewing machine and I've taken two sewing classes! I've sewn two pillow cases, three pillows, a zippered purse and button holes! And did a sample of all the stitches my machine does! I'm very excited to S-E-W!!!
Love creating. I enjoy finding items and turning them into something else. I make urban plants from chair or table legs, copper wire and glass beads.
I make cigar box purses. Of course I use a cigar box :) and other materials include latches, wire for the handles, glass beads, mirrors, pretty fabric for the inside, embellishments, acrylic paints.
Making things from found materials is a lot of fun!
I also draw and paint.
This is colored pencil.
I like markers!
Acrylics on wood panel.
I enjoy photography.
See the blue moth?
On one of the routes I was on.
This is where I live! Love it here! I took this picture on the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP).
Zentangles are fun. This is my very first Zentangle.
Markers of zen.
I also make jewelry.
I love making postcards and other paper art and mail art. Creating them digitally or physically is fun and relaxing. It's taking a little piece of me and making it into art!
I also make themed key hangers. Stickers, keys, army men, poker chips, game pieces, trinkets, small plastic animals and bugs are all things I use to create them.
I'm kind of a jack-of-all-art and master of none. :)
Other items I would like:
My favorite movie is "Billy Elliot"! It's a must see movie!
"Billie Elliott" trailer
I also love "AmÃ©lie".
I also like "The Green Mile", "Face Off", "Forest Gump", "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory", "Lord of the Rings Trilogy", "The Hobbit", "Harry Potter", "Hellraiser", "Titanic", "Dogma", "Matrix". I'm sure I can think of more but that's enough for now. ðŸ˜Š
In no particular order:
Stevie Nicks ~ Pink Floyd ~ Florence and the Machine ~ Of Monsters and Men ~ Seether ~ Pink ~ Lorde ~ Lady Gaga ~ Sia ~ Johnny Cash
I collect funky roosters =not regular roosters. They must be odd or different.
I collect salt and pepper shakers.
I collect fairies.
I collect postcards. I specifically enjoy linen post office postcards and handmade!
I'm a member of Postcrossing Silverd1 and Swap Swamp through Facebook. I love sending a receiving postcards!
Self made postcards are VERY welcome. A photo, drawing, graphics, collage, anything "handmade".
I love to cook and try new recipes.
I enjoy reading fiction as well as books about graphic design, self help, sci-fi, spirituality.
Creating art is a huge part of who I am.
Love hiking and going to the different water falls, and jumping in them or just standing in them!
Postcrossing and Swap Swamp.
I love Illustrator and Photoshop and use them often to create.
I created both of these in Illustrator.
I like creating handmade postcards.
This pc is from a photo I took in Texas.
Some of my favorite books in no particular order:
Things I 'm NOT into:
Pokemon, Sponge Bob, Hello Kitty, Kawaii, reward stickers.
Please don't send me religious items.
I despise cooked carrots, yuck. I don't like them with the brown sugar glaze either! I like raw carrots but ix-nay cooked!
I do not wear makeup or nail polish. I haven't worn a skirt or dress in a long time. My ears are very sensitive concerning earrings and get infected easily but I still wear them and just deal with it.
I don't like grape flavored candy.
I don't care for alcohol flavored coffee.
I don't like cooked liver or gizzards. But I like liver pâté.
Don't care for venison. I've tried it many different ways but can't get past the gaminess.
That's pretty much it but if I think of anything else I'll add it. But I will also mention that I will continue to try these foods because our taste buds change. For instance I didn't like radishes or mashed potatoes and now I like them. They're quite yummy!
If you don't get my item and it says it's been sent please contact me! I would not join a swap if I weren't going to participate, not a flaker. If you haven't received anything from me, let me know, I will be happy to send it again.
If I have not rated feel free to contact me. It gets busy in the mail room and the room of life.
I give every host a star- I feel that if you're going to take time out of your life to host even one swap then you deserve a star. Unless the host does something heinous- like flake...
