About Me

Hello, I am currently in the process of moving to Oregon, so I have had to step away from swapping just for a short time, I am excited to get swapping again in October.

Hi there! My name is Gina, I live in Sunny California but grew up in Montana. So although I do love the warm weather I really miss the blue sky's, open spaces, beautiful mountains, and yes even the snow of my beautiful Montana. I love spending time with my family and friends and I am so proud of my daughter who is in her fifth year as a teacher, she continues to amaze and inspire me. In my down time when I am not working I love to bury myself in my art room. I love to draw, paint (acrylic & watercolor), make jewelry (Steampunk and Resin are my new favs) , love paper arts, altered images and ATC's. and I love, love, love my gemstones. If I ever change careers I would consider Gemology. Bright shiny things make me smile. Last but not least, I have a pretty cool new cat, I adopted her from the shelter. I lost my cat after 12+ years last December and it was time for another fur-ball in the house. Her personality is really blooming and she makes me smile. She is also a good companion for my daughters cat, he is equally awesome.

Favorite Music

I will listen to almost anything, almost. I think the 80's pretty much has the best music ( Love those big hair bands) that most likely dates me, but I do love Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Alternative, Blues and some Rap.

Favorite Books

I rarely have time to read, but I take my Nook out with me for a chance to read a few pages when ever I can. I do love finding that book that you can't put down. I don't really have a favorite genre or Author, just simply what interests me at the time.

Favorite Movies

I love movies, comedy and thrillers, but my all time favorite is Sci-Fi. Yup, most likely a bit of a nerd but Firefly, Wyvern, Sharknado, Frankenfish will most likely give you a good introduction to what you will find in my DVD collection. I also love comedy's, just seems to lighten the mood. Superstore, Food Network, and drum roll please....90 Day Fiance are a few of my guilty pleasures in my downtime.

Favorite Crafts

As I mentioned above I love to draw (pencil, markers, chalk) paint (mostly watercolor and acrylic). I love paper arts, love to make cards, ATC's and inchies. I love working with gemstones, both reading/learning about them and setting them in jewelry, Tourmaline is my all time favorite. Lately you will find me making jewelry (Resin, Steampunk, anything with beads, and altered pieces and I love to re-purpose). I find creating any artwork to be totally soothing and therapeutic, could also be the wine, but I am going to say it is the art.

I am committed to shipping promptly and giving feedback, I am on Ebay all the time both buying and selling, I really value feedback and aim to please. Please alert me right away if you do not receive a swap, I will take care of you.

Likes

I love both coffee and tea. I love chocolate (milk, dark, and white) but don't really care for flavored chocolates. Cherry and Apple Jolly Ranchers make me smile. I love all art supplies, I love to re-purpose almost anything especially vintage pieces. I love old papers and vintage bits for ATC's. I love gemstones both cut and in the rough form, cabochons as well. I use and wear mostly silver but I do like all metals. I like small flat rocks. I love acorns, moss and other pieces of nature, dried flowers are a favorite. I love all beads, big and small but do not have a use for pony or seed beads as I already have a life time supply of both of them. I love, love, love anything Santa themed. I love to cook. My favorite colors are green (all shades), pinks, blues, black and white,silver (ok, I love most colors but rarely wear yellow and orange as it doesn't look good on me). I have pierced ears and love all jewelry, rarely caught with out it. Last but not least, lip gloss and lip stick, cant live with out it.

Comment: Very nice-love the brown monotones of the tim holtz paper dolls in contrast to the bright flowers. The die cuts are wonderful-love especially the globe one-so unique-I haven't seen that one before-must look it up. My craft room is my happy place these days two-my crafting helpers(2 cats) and I pass the time away mostly there. Stay safe and thanks for the swap and goodies. Brightens my day!

Comment: Gina, I apologize for the late rating...I SWEAR I thought I had rated, but when I found your beautiful little piece of art on my craft table, I knew I’d better make sure. And what do you know...there was no rating. I’m in awe of the sheer gorgeousness of this ATC. The paper napkin background is so lovely, and the message on the ATC resonates with me. Thank you for being the best imaginable swap partner!
