About Me

I'm an Architect and Interior designer from Texas who has a real passion for creativity. I have been married for ninteen years to Andy. We are avid travelers and have been all over the world: China, Egypt, Peru, Ireland, Greece, Italy, France, England, Scotland, Russia, Germany, Switzerland, India, Canada, Jamaica, and a few other spots. My hobbies are traveling, scrapbooking, altered art, painting (oil & watercolor), glass blowing, ceramics, and swaps. I have a 6 year old daughter (MaryAlice) and 3 year old (Abby). They were a HUGE surprise to us in our 40's. Now while all of my friends are sending their kids off to college ours are starting school. Lol

My husband was transfered to Kansas in 2019. Needless to say after a cross country move it has taken me a year to get back on swapbot. I sure did miss it!

My creative addictions.

I enjoy making, ATC's, cards, jewelry, flowers, dominos, soldered items, beading, journals, x-mas ornaments, altered matchboxes, mini books, scrapbooking, embossing metal, note cards, altered bottle caps, shrines, ephemera, glass fusing, and painting with watercolors. In other words I enjoy making just about anything.

Favorite Television

Shows I like to watch, The Walking dead, Major crime, Big bang theory, Vikings, Game of thrones, Law & order SVU, Downton Abbey, American horror story, Mayans, War of the worlds, and anything on the sci-fi, or chiller channel. Lately I am enjoying binging on Hulu, Netflix and Sundance now.

Favorite Movies

I love movies! Dramas, romantic comedy's, action & adventure, sci-fi, mysteries, but my FAVORITE are scary movies.

Favorite Music

I have a wide taste in music. You can find everything from Beethoven to Metallica on my ipod. I started collecting foreign music Cd's a few years ago while traveling.

Wish List:

Some of my favorite things are:

Broken jewelry: necklaces, watches, bracelets, etc.... I like to repurpose them.

keys: I want your no longer needed keys, I like to repurpose those as well.

Book pages in foreign languages! I love these and can not get enough.

My birthday is March 17, "St. Patrick's Day" so clovers, shamrocks and anything Irish are a HUGE hit with me :)

Anything travel related, foreign money, charms, ATC, jewelry ,unique paper, maps, old book pages, old photographs, jewelry bits, small vintage items, seed beads, small items for matchboxes or bottle caps, lace, ribbon, origami art, shrines, ephemera, and buttons.

ALLERGIES: Smoke, cat hair, and perfumes
