LET THOSE WHOM YOU LOVE KNOW THAT YOU LOVE THEM PLEASE.... LIFE IS WAY TOO SHORT!!!!
I have had to say goodbye to two beautiful people these last couple of months, first my brother and now my Step-Mother.... there are more important things than arguing or holding grudges! Believe me!
Hi, living in Australia means that I have to live with slow postage... sorry... If I tell you something has been sent, then I have sent it, Please be patient, thank you!
I am 55 years old and proud of it, my husband Kyle and I are 'empty-nesters' now - I have 4 adult children and three AMAZING Grandchildren!
As an Artist, I usually thrive on being creative, however, as this has been a particularly hard year, my 'muse' isn't playing fair, and so I am not creating as well or as much as I would like.... I hope that she isn't away too long!
If you want to know anything, please ask :)
My tastes in music are quite eclectic... I have loved the Beatles more than the Rolling Stones all my life, but now that I am older and can choose for myself what I want to listen to (as opposed to what others want to hear around me), I lean towards heavy metal, classical, eastern (and combinations of all of them). Favourite music includes the artists:
. Trans Siberian Orchestra
. Penguin Cafe Orchestra
. The Tea Party
. Jimmy Barnes
. Matchbox Twenty
I am not at all a fan of country music except for a very select few (Garth Brooks as Chris Gaines, Linda Ronstadt)
I am also not a fan of rap and hip hop music, and the 'new' music that is around in the top 40, it just leaves me cold.
I enjoy reading, but don't do it often enough!
I enjoyed all of Dan Browns books although Digital Fortress was a little too predictable for me.
I have never read Fifty Shades of Gray but I did hear a young English lady by the name of Emma Blackery read it on youtube (in chapters)... the readings are quite hilarious as Emma puts her own 'take' on the writing of the book (she only read the first one). It is worth your time to look Emma up on youtube and watch and listen to her reading it, I promise you will laugh :)
Ahhh the movies... I went to see The Hobbit the other day, and Life of Pi... I would strongly recommend The Hobbit but Life of Pi was far too drawn out (even though the scenery was quite magnificent), I wouldn't pay to see that again.
My husband and I don't watch television, so the internet and movies are what we 'do'.
I do like a good sappy, tear jerking movie.. but I also like action and horror! Eclectic again :p
My favourite movie has to be Red Dog I think... there are many good movies, but this one caught my complete attention the whole way though and made me want to visit the area... second favourite is The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel... GREAT acting and brilliant locale - again making me want to visit!
In the horror category... The Descent has to be the scariest I have seen... I don't like movies that centre around the occult that is a different category again.
So that is about it.
I am a pretty ordinary person really.... just being happy and living day to day in an unmaterialistic way...
I AM an artist, not a 'crafts-person' - so I skipped the craft section and also, as I said before, I don't watch television...
Also, I am NOT a religious person... I lean towards Buddhism if 'any' religion is where I must lean... but prefer Secular Humanism and I believe firmly in keeping good values, doing the right thing, being honest and humble.
I do think that Karma is real as well.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about me... good luck with your swaps!!
. religious items or themes in works
. childrens items
. 'adult' content (unless it is necessary, I am no prude, but erotic art and that kind of genre must be done well - I hope you understand)
. food or sweets
. anything to do with SNAKES or FROGS (hate them)
. I HATE GLITTER AND SEQUINS so please.. please dont use them on your artworks.. thank you so much.
I have been asked to put in a couple of my favourite things.. so here goes...
. I love the colour YELLOW... it is my favourite, but I also love blue :)
. I thoroughly enjoy collecting ART and ATC's
. I am passionate about SPIDERS - yes.. I know most people arent.. but I am... they are the ultimate symbol of femininity
. EARRINGS... I have a nice little collection growing and am seriously thinking of starting a swap for them :)
