About Me

I'm a reluctant housewife / SAHM. I left a job I loved because I thought I might enjoy my sanity more than employment. I haven't made a decision on that score, yet.

I have done exotic animal rescue for years and now have a menagerie in my home! This includes snakes, lizards, spiders, birds and small, biting things. There's also a small dog and two surly cats roaming the halls somewhere.

I am tattooed, pierced and gauged, and I love every little bit of it. I am a huge fan of tattoo art, and it frequently finds its way into my projects, even if I'm going for something completely different! Don't panic, though, I'm still pretty girlie.

I also, unfortunately tend to be... er... more NC-17 in my language than PG, but generally try to be mindful.

I really am a nice person.



Favorite Music

I listen to almost anything, but still haven't fallen in love with rap or dubstep. Also, most Top 40 stuff makes me cringe a little.

My favorite is jazz- Dave Brubeck, Thelonious Monk, Vince Guarldi and the rest of those guys.

Classic rock is great, too.

So is classical music in general.

Favorite Books

I will, quite literally, read anything. I don't even have a favorite genre.

Please don't judge. It's an illness.

I do love a good series, though. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, Enchanted, Inc...

Favorite Crafts

I like to dabble in a little of everything. I'm not particularly stellar in any one craft area, but can manage good at a lot things when I really, really, REALLY work at it.

And I don't mind working at it!

I'm enjoying altering matchboxes and tins, and playing with ATC's and inchies. I love making little felt goodies, too!

Things I Love

  • Animals - any kind. I love hippos and owls, though. And my parrots. And my dog. And, wait, yeah, the spiders, too. Don't judge! ;)

  • Gnomes!

  • Markers and Pens

  • Robots

  • Washi / Deco tape - all kinds!

  • the color green. and purple. and black and white.

  • Monsters - both the cute and the scary kind

  • like everyone else, I love all things Tim Holtz

  • Felt! However, I have not branched into needle-felting, yet. I'm waiting to buy tools and supplies.

  • Doodles

  • Watercolors

  • Nuts and bolts

  • Rainy days

  • Cold nights and a warm blanket

  • Coffee. Although, that's not a love, that's a necessity.

  • PVC pipe.

  • Vintage and Victorian photos or reproductions of photos.

  • Fancy duct tape. Where was that stuff when I was a kid??

  • Ice Cream

  • Most Chocolate.

  • Stickers and embellishments

  • Matchbox / tin box alterations and anything I can use to make them!

Things I'm Not As Fond Of

  • Harshness

  • Biblical verses or other Christian items. I left the church many years ago and am very comfortable with my decision. However, I am very respectful of everyone's faith.

  • Trash

  • White chocolate.

  • Cage cleaning days

  • Any kind of cleaning days.

Favorite Television

  • Doctor Who

  • Once Upon a Time

  • Mad Men

  • Big Bang Theory

  • Wheeler Dealers - what can I say? I love Edd.

  • Firefly

  • Friends

Favorite Movies

I love a good movie! Some of my favorites:

  • Gosford Park

  • Anything Studio Ghibli, but particularly Howl's Moving Castle

  • The Princess Bride

  • James Bond - particularly the Sean Connery years and now Daniel Craig.

  • Rock of Ages

  • The Avengers - and this includes their individual flicks - Iron Man, Thor, Captain America

  • Any of the Disney animated classics, but particularly Alice In Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty.

  • Love Actually

  • A Prairie Home Companion

  • Anything John Hughes ever did - The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, etc...

  • Casablanca

  • Gone With the Wind

About my swaps

If you don't receive something from me, please contact me ASAP. I am always happy to track something down or re-send if need be.

I always rate and I rate fast! I sit at the desk and open mail with my laptop open. If I've gotten your swap, I've rated it. I hate having to wait and worry about whether or not something has arrived.

If I haven't received from you, I will always make multiple attempts to message you before rating. So far, I've only ever had to rate a single '1', and I really hope I get to keep that record!
