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 am also the sucker of two cats that claimed me about 7 years ago...little did they know they would have to give up their bird-killing ways.
Being vegan, I love animals...especially pigs. Pigs are pretty darn cool and make for great subjects in any piece of art.
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.
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).
Anything on Investigation Discovery; I do Search and Rescue so I am hooked on the shows about missing people.
I love She's Crafty re-runs, American Pickers, Oddities, Bones, and my local NBC News broadcast. I have somehow gotten sucked in to Ghost Adventures during the overnight hours on Fridays.
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!!!
Please don't send anything with feathers (dyed or natural) or leather.
I wish I knew how to make this bright and flashing...I can't tell you how frequently people send me these even though it is a very simple request.
Ok, so it seems I need to post my favorite color(s) for some of the swaps I am entering. I don't really have a favorite color but I realized that most of my clothing, furniture, decor, etc is black/deep grey. I like a nice rich violet, dark yellow ( I really like violet and a darker, rich yellow (or orange) together), bright bold colors are good...not into pastels or country colors. Other than hot pink, I only want my pigs to be pink please. Update 1/5/12: I think I am digging lime green.
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 and though I am just beginning, I would eventually like to have one from each state. 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.
Altered rubber ducks, touristy fridge magnets, anything tourist trap related, skulls, and almost anything twisted.
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.
