I am off site for a while to deal with family problems. Hope to be back soon.
I am an eclectic artists that can't decide on one type of art. I am in two galleries with my paintings and collaged frames. I am in four businesses and two galleries with my collaged Handmade Recyclables blank greeting cards. I have two cats, two foster cats, one outside cat. I love making Steampunk art and any type of recycled materials art, that's why I love Swapbot so much. I am also taking on line distance ed. classes in Library Science. You are never to old to learn.
Zydeco, Cajun, waltz, tango, fox trot, swing, country two-step - almost anything couples danceable!
Hope Floats Any Harry Potter (what can I say ?) Roxanne Benny & Joon The original Harvey with Jimmy Stewart UP The Princes and the Frog Last Chance Harvey If you are sending me a CD - please send Art Instruction DVDs - collage and/or acrylic if possible. I have lots of regular movies. Thanks on this.
Don't watch TV - rots the mind, well...maybe the cooking channel, the Home Decorating Channel, the History Channel, Top Model, Remodeled, Dancing with the Stars and NCIS.
I am now into altered frames with a Steampunk theme and Handmade Recyclables blank greeting cards, but I still do ATCs, Altered Books, Watercolor/acrylic painting, ebony pencil drawing, crochet, knitting, quilting, collage, bead work, and other various and sundry areas too numerous to mention, when I have the time.
I make recycled greeting cards so need decorative papers and old greeting cards.
Need anything metal for Steampunk work like tiny washers, screws, small and tiny metal embellishments, black metal zippers, copper, black, or gold colored wires, copper, black, or gold colored beads, and small bendable pipes, old silverware with antique patterns, antique looking jewelry, and anything that will fit the Steampunk theme, including old glasses, goggles, broken watches or pictures of old watches, old small sized lace and trims. Oh, and old Victorian type pictures of the ladies in black dresses and the guys in top hat outfits or pith helmet outfits. Also any rubber stamps with Steampunk themes. Need anything that looks Victorian that I can use in my Steampunk work. Also old flat rusted items to collage with.
I do a lot of collage now so send: old or mismatched jewelry, any papers that can be used for collage: light weight, textured, hand made, unusual prints, unusual designs, and gold or silver on black - the bigger the piece of paper the better - I do large projects sometimes.
I dance so send anything dance related - pictures with dancers on them. When I say dance, I mean couples dancing but I can also use ballet dancers and other dancers.
I also like fairies and angel pictures.
I like stickers (prefer 3-D) of real butterflies and real bugs, clocks and watches, spirals and circles, flowers, realistic animals, anything of Tim Holtz, stripes and plaids and stars.
Anything related to New Orleans. I love dancing to Zydeco and Cajun music.
I DO NOT LIKE CUTESY THINGS SUCH CARTOON ANIMALS OR PEOPLE, CARTOON CHARACTERS, UNREALISTIC DRAWINGS ON STICKERS AND PAPERS AND COLLAGE PICTURES. Please do not send, thanks!
PLEASE DO NOT SEND anything cutesy like dancing animals and any of the cartoon characters, Hanna Montana or any kid/teenager stars, anything from TV programs (except Dancing with the Stars).
No historical fiction. Please do not send to me these authors because I have read most of James Patterson, Sandra Brown, Catherine Coulter, Robert Ludlum, Maeve Binchy, Nora Roberts, Sidney Sheldon, Fern Michaels, Dean Koontz, Debbie MacComber, Dave Berry, all of Carlos Castineda (three times) and many more. I am a voracious reader so am open to funny romance, mystery, thrillers, and open genres. I love a book that will make me laugh.
I just read Eat, Pray, Love and really enjoyed that one. Anything like that. I also read the Summer and Tuscany group of books.
I do not like self-help, historic fiction, blood and guts in gory fashion, mushy romance, romance for the simple minded, religious books, books that could be edited down to half the size by taking out repetitions of the worries of the heroine.
I have never flaked, might be occasionally late but I always send!!! I volunteer and send Angel packets all the time.
I was flaked on by Jellybirds on the 40pages found art journal.
Do not send Sharpie pens, gel pens, stationary and note pads, ruffly lace, children's or cutesy stickers, any Brittany Spears, Taylor Swift, Hanna Montana, etc. type of anything, nudity, dark subjects, or bad language..
