I like

  • ocean colors
  • coffee
  • architecture, blueprints
  • interesting lettering and typography
  • lilacs, tulips, and bluebonnets
  • movies and books about time travel
  • Craftsman style architecture, Mission and Shaker furniture
  • birds: any kind, but especially cardinals and penguins
  • dogs
  • cats
  • travel
  • London
  • anything related to running or fitness. I lost 60 pounds in 2015 and now run 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons.

In June 2016, I started taking Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry classes, so a lot of my current art work features his techniques as I'm learning and experimenting. I've done ATCs for years, but I'm branching out into tags, so if you're interesting in swapping those, let me know.

My style leans toward bright and bohemian, although I also harbor a fondness for 1950's style and colors, and I like the vintage look if it isn't overdone with lace and flowers. Aqua is my favorite hue, but I've never met a color I didn't like.

Please don't send

I would appreciate not receiving anything with the following themes or motifs:

  • Adult themes (nudity, vulgarity, coarse language)
  • Anything satanic or having to do with the occult
  • Wicca, paganism, or anything that worships or idealizes "Mother Earth" or "Goddess."
  • Eastern mysticism; Buddhism; Islam; Shintoism; pantheism.
  • Depictions of violence or death
  • Politicized rainbows
  • Rodents (mice, rats)
  • Snakes

Comment: Thank you for considering my wishes. The ATC is very nice.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely tag, I used similar colors in distress and the same sentiment. Made me smile. We have had so much snow up here but I adore it.
Response: We distress fans think alike, I guess. :) I'm glad you love your snow - just keep it up there, far north of me. LOL.

I miss you so much also. I am really hoping March is my month. I am about to be stable by the end of March I'm hoping as I have no permanent place to live at the moment. I do finally see light at the end of the tunnel though. Thanks so much for thinking of me. ♥
