My name is Ginia (pronounced Jenna) you'd have to ask my mother. lol Im a 45 year old crafting fool. I come from a very craft talented family (grandmother, mother, sister) Im the runt of the litter but still love creating. Im from Ohio originally and attended OSU Go Buckeyes. I now live right outside Dallas, Tx. Ive been married 25 years to my best friend and am the mother of one grown son. Grandmother to 2 adorable fur babies.Our first grandchild, a girl is due January 25th. We are soo excited. I love all paper crafts (scrapbooking, card making, altered books, matchbooks), Jewelery making, crocheting and sewing. My extremely talented and art educated daughter in law has recently introduced me to ATC's, inchies, polymer clay and many other awesome mediums. I want to try everything! Im so psyched to have found swap bot.............in addition to crafting, I have always loved putting together packages and surprises for others......when my son was in college, Id send him themed packages every month.....half the fun for me is finding creative packaging and wrapping ideas.
I love all music, and love to listen while crafting...........Music can set the tone for me.....it can inspire, motivate, calm, relax...........it truly soothes the savage beast. Ive been enamored by the Beatles again since seeing the Cirque de Soleil Love show in Vegas........if you get a chance.......see it......its amazing. Some random faves are Michael Buble, Korn, Enya, Led Zeppelin, Linkin Park, Nickleback, as you can see, very eclectic.
BOOKS..........I love reading and have always been a voracious reader............as of late I have been enjoying Jodi Picoult. Also love all craft and cookbooks. Actually love to read anything.
MOVIES and TV............I dont really have a favorite movie, usually just try to watch whats current............Netflix rocks :) Fave tv shows include all CBS soaps, NCIS, The Unit, House,anything on HGTV or DIY network
FAVORITE CRAFTS Since joining swap-bot, my whole outlook on crafting has changed. I have discovered so many new mediums and obsessions. I never knew about dotees, ATC's, matchboxes or altered art. They are now some of my favorite crafts to do. I also enjoy sewing, crochet, jewelery making, polymer clay, and all papercrafts.
