About Me

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a Moore-aholic. Seriously though, I'm a freaky, twisted, morbid, closet crafter (if you tell anyone, I will deny it) who loves to alter all kinds of items....I love re-purposing items and using them in an unintended manner.

I am also the sucker of two cats that claimed me about 12 years ago...little did they know they would have to give up their bird-killing ways.

Being vegetarian, I love animals...especially goats, hairy legged chickens and pigs.

I am not an artist by any means but I do love looking for and making stuff...especially for others. Speaking of which, all of my ATCs usually ship out just before the swap deadline as I make each one specific for the recipient after assigned.

I tend to be into twisted/morbid/oddball themes and have an obsession of sorts for bathrooms...especially public/industrial bathrooms and outhouses. Odd is good!!!

Oh, I'm also an avid geocacher and long-time genealogist with a love of cemeteries!

Favorite Crafts

I love painting pottery and personalizing it for the recipient. After taking many years off from acrylic painting I am back in the park and have really gotten into mixed media pieces. I think I like doing matchbox shrines, I need to do a few more to be certain. UPDATE: I am hooked on ATCs. I love everything about ATCs.

I have somehow managed to avoid doing anything with needle and thread...until recently. A co-worker gave me a lunch-time lesson on hand embroidery and I was quite pleased with the Phillies logo I did later that night...there has to be an easier way to thread a needle though. I want to try to use this a little more in the future.

I hoard paper!!! Any kind of paper...I have drawers full of solids, patterns, paper bags, and even a bunch of napkins. I think I may have a problem. I even like to collect (hoard) postcards...any will do but I really love odd touristy ones (or any tourist PC).

Favorite Movies

Movies...uh, National Treasure!!! I have seen National Treasure to many times to remember...my favorite movie. Next in line would be anything from the Saw series...Jigsaw rocks! I go back and forth between kids movies (you know, the ones for kid that we all secretly watch) and slasher-gasher flicks. The Human Centipede baby!!!

DO NOT SEND

Please don't send any animal parts...this includes feathers (dyed or natural) and leather.

Colors

Ok, so it seems I need to post my favorite color(s) for some of the swaps I am entering. Robin Egg Blue is topping my list, followed by violet, red, mineral, grey. Bright bold colors are good...not into pastels or country colors.

Postcards

I have always loved and collected postcards though it wasn't until I discovered SB that this really took off. I prefer postcards to be naked and written on as it adds so much more character. Though I enjoy all types of PCs, I think my favorite are anything touristy (I'm a sucker for tourist traps). Through SB, I have been turned on to a world of map PCs, I love seeing maps from everywhere. A few other types high up on my list are small town street views, caves/caverns, anything morbid or bizarre (one of my favs is a giant colon from Philly), and major league baseball stadiums. I like it all except cutesy, girly stuff like pink kawaii.

Things that make me giddy

Altered rubber ducks, touristy fridge magnets, anything tourist trap related, skulls, and almost anything twisted or related to cemeteries.

Saw Trap Wish List

If you are looking for a theme for anything you are making me, please consider any of the Saw traps listed below. Not sure what they are, just Google them and click images. The ones I have received so far are so amazing and the makers very creative.

Comment: For living close-ish to Philly, I always seem to be either at the airport or right across the river in NJ. I've been meaning to drive to Lansdale and hop on the train into the city but have been a total slacker and haven't gone for some time.
