About Me

Lawyer by day, creative soul at heart. I've been into photography for years, and in my search to do something creative with my photos, I stumbled into art journaling, and other assorted paper crafts, like journal making, card making, ATC making, and Project Life. Right now, I'm trying not to fall into the Planner community hole, although I think I really really want a Happy Planner.

I recently moved from Philadelphia to the 'burbs, where I live in an old stone house with my awesome husband, and 2 excellent Boston Terriers, Lemon and Olive. Coinciding with the move, I've become interested in all things mail related,including swapping. I don't know what it is about moving out of the city, but my mailbox seems to give me a greater sense of connection.

As I said I'm a lawyer by day - a public defender. I'm 47, and I've been at my job now for nearly 20 years. I only work on homicide cases. I spend a lot of my time in court, or at the prison. It's very dreary, to say the least. Art and crafting is definitely therapeutic when I come home from work.

I've been knitting for at least 15 years, and I recently taught myself to crochet. I also dabble a bit in embroidery and quilting. Every once in awhile I go on a doll making kick too - I don't know what to do with them when I'm done, but it's fun.

Favorite Music

Springsteen * Foo Fighters * Adele

Favorite Books

Little Women is my all time favorite book - Jo has always been my role model

Right now, I'm nearing the end of the third book of the Neapolitan Series, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay. I'm totally over it, but I have to find out what happens, so I'll be muddling through and then reading book 4.

Favorite Movies

Philadelphia Story * It's A Wonderful Life * A Room With a View * Sense and Sensibility * Gone with the Wind * Singing in the Rain

My husband and I are both movie junkies. We try to see everything as it hits the theaters. Oscar season is definitely my time of year!

Favorite Crafts

Knitting * Art Journaling * Mixed Media Art * Altered journals * Paper Crafts * Quilting * ATCS * Mail Art * Bookbinding Crochet Embroidery, Quilting, Project Life

Favorite Television

Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul, Blindspot, Black List, Bosch, Orange is the New Black, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Pets

Boston Terrier!

Favorite Colors

Plum * Blue * Green

Fave Art Supplies

Stabilo Marks All Pencil * Guache * Gel Medium * Pretty Paper * Vintage Ephemera

Hi there,

Your blog review is done! http://beddingdowninbedlam.blogspot.com

Just letting you know I left my review on my blog. I am not done with the other 4 partners yet.

Barsook on Mar 3, 2012:

Welcome to Swap-Bot Wendy! I hope you enjoy swapping here on his fun site! Happy swappin'!

Hi Wendy! Welcome to Swap-Bot! So glad you're here! You are sooo going to LOVE it here! There are so many fun swaps, and this is such an amazing community of fun, talented, and creative people!

Welcome also to the 'I β™₯heartβ™₯ Mail Art - March' swap --- thank you for joining my swap! If you have any questions, please feel free to holler! Hope to 'meet you in the mail' often! :)

p.s. it is always a good idea to fill out your profile with as much information & detail as possible. All your likes, favourite colours, crafts, hobbies, wishlists, etc. The more specific info you have, the happier your mailbox will be! It makes it much easier for your swap partner to create/choose items that you suit you perfectly if you have a well filled-out profile. You will notice on most of the swaps that one of the main requirements is to have a well-filled out profile --- that is the case with this swap as well.

The more detail in your profile, the better the swaps will be for you and your partner!

Happy Swapping! :)

Justene :)
