I'm a boat drivin', river lovin', quiltin', embroiderin', craft lover, wife and mother of four (two his and two mine) who enjoys down time with my Husqvarna. And now, I find myself in love with dotee dolls! Who knew? :-) I posted a couple in process on my blog if you want to see my craftability. (update...I haven't updated my blog in a long time due to some trauma. All is well now but I'm working on my website instead of blogging lately.)
I first embroidered a pillow with roses when I was in the fourth grade. My first blouse made from a pattern was when I was eight years old. My mother taught me how to sew, crochet, knit and draw instead of sitting me in front of the television and I'm so grateful. But I loved watching Wild, Wild West when I did watch TV...Robert Conrad was great eye candy for this little girl...hubba hubba!
My favorite color is red and I love dark red, royal blue, gold, tourquoise, black and burgundy.
I love spirituality, graphic & web design, drawing, writing, angels, boats, wine and licorice.
I have three sewing machines, tattoos and puppies.
Rock n' Roll FOREVER! Led Zeppelin, Janice, Dylan, Doors, Dio, Sabbath, Crue, Whitesnake, Disturbed, Pink Floyd, Godsmack, Sixx AM and I can't forget to mention WHITE STRIPES. Everything Jack White. I love concerts.
Current books: Seminole Quils, Artists Way, power of Intention.
My favorite author is Manly P. Hall.
Lord of the Rings... Practical Magic... A Dark Knight... Gone with the Wind, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, The Ya-Ya Sisterhood to name a few.
My favorite actors are John Malkovich, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Gene Hackman, Jeff Goldbloom, Robert Downey Jr. and Sandra Bullock. AND Jude Law. He really impressed me in Sleuth. I'll watch everything I find them in.
I watch Law and Order, Heroes, CSI, Bravo Inside the Actors Studio, Project Runway and Lost.
Update: Once Upon A Time, American Pickers.
My #1 passion is to sew and design quilts. I love to make potholders, write, and make full moon quilts. Memory jugs, softies and dotees.
I like pretty witches, witch bonnet sue, lions, cats, kids, silk, jet boats, stars and stars, stick figures, cave drawings, goddess symbols, bathing suits, sandals, river, sand, rocks, trees, flowers, scandinavian motif, viking designs, sunsets, sunrise, moons and more moons, everything Finland, Peru, Machu Picchu, ruins, music, spirals, love...
I don't like scented (allergic) items. Happy pink girlie items, no horses, goats, dogs, cows, cats (unless black cats :-) and reptiles...how about no animals unless it's a black panther or crows.
Alter items are cool!
