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.
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.
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...
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!
Animals - any kind. I love hippos and owls, though. And my parrots. And my dog. And, wait, yeah, the spiders, too. Don't judge! ;)
Markers and Pens
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.
Nuts and bolts
Cold nights and a warm blanket
Coffee. Although, that's not a love, that's a necessity.
Vintage and Victorian photos or reproductions of photos.
Fancy duct tape. Where was that stuff when I was a kid??
Stickers and embellishments
Matchbox / tin box alterations and anything I can use to make them!
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.
Cage cleaning days
Any kind of cleaning days.
Once Upon a Time
Big Bang Theory
Wheeler Dealers - what can I say? I love Edd.
I love a good movie! Some of my favorites:
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.
A Prairie Home Companion
Anything John Hughes ever did - The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, etc...
Gone With the Wind
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!
