Easy going artist that finds fun and beauty in everything. Making unusual wire and bead jewelry, knitting and spinning are my favorite hobbies. I enjoy mixed media, collage, rubberstamps, drawing, buttons, beads, bottlecaps, sugarskulls, dominoes, and making something creative out of nothing. I collect vintage jewelry to make into my own designs. I LOVE Starbuck's double chocolate chip frappacino! (no coffee flavor). I am a rescuer of animals, I love them all. I am a city girl at heart, living in a country world.
Favorite Books Books on any mixed media or jewelry techniques. Also, Debbie Macomber and Robin Cook.
Favorite Movies Wizard of Oz, The Greatest Show on Earth, Beaches, Bicentennial Man, The Other Sister, I AM Sam, Waterdance, Marley and Me, Castaway, Shawshank Redemption, too many to mention.

Favorite Themes Vintage anything, cats, anything altered, birds, especially ravens, colorful sugar skulls, cute skullys, words/phrases of wisdom and art. I love anything with cats. Love purple, orange, jewel tone pink, also neon pink, lime green, and turquoise.
I enjoy all unique experiences in life which includes swapping and meeting new people. I enjoy all aspects of art and don't want anyone to feel what the send is not good enough. I want a piece of the artist/sender, a glimpse into who they are by what they chose for me. I would love for the swapper to choose something that reflects who they are in addition to what I might like. I am very flexible and truly enjoy and am open to other's ideas.
It might be helpful to know that I do wirework, beading, vintage jewelry re-work, collage, paper crafts, knitting, crochet, spinning, and felting, so almost anything is useful to me. I love receiving "found" and unusual items that I can use in my work.
Lately I have been working on beading and wirework that use all manner of embellishments including found objects, ribbon, beads, buttons, charms, stones, "junque" of all kinds.
I love people and am always interested in who you are, what you love, what makes you happy.
I promise to fulfill all of my swaps, and if for some reason you do not receive from me PLEASE email me and I will take care of it.
