About Me

Hello Everyone! I am Sarah, a 20 almost 30 something year old girl from all over the country who happens to be studying art education with an emphasis on Art Metals. If I am not crafting, painting, working, studying, or sleeping, I am probably reading or making coffee. I happily reside in Idaho, potatoes all around!

I do like to recycle packaging, so please don't be surprised to find a redecorated package coming to your door!

I try to only do a few swaps at a time so as not to get overwhelmed. Generally I stay away from swapping around finals and Christmas as these tend to be the busiest times of year for me. :P Please let me know if you haven't received your package. I will get another out to you asap!

Having spent several years in fine arts, and in my continued training as a metal smith; I have grown to really appreciate completely hand crafted/fabricated items. Please don't hesitate to send me your art, even if you are new to drawing/painting/whatever. I VALUE your art!!!!!!!

prefabricated adj prefabricated [priːˈfabrikeitid] Made of parts manufactured in advance and ready to be put together

vs.

hand·made/ˈhan(d)ˈmād/ Adjective:
Made by hand, not by machine.

****This doesn't mean I look down upon art using things found at your local craft store. I love ALL art!*****

Favorite Music

I love any and all music with two exceptions. The dreaded modern country.....icky...and anything religious, I am picky about my religious music. Currently I am into Classical, Indie, House, and a little bit of folk....Ska, funk, hippie....Bluegrass!

Favorite Movies

I love almost any and all movies....from the hilariously bad to the thought provoking. Here are a few exapmles: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Amelie, Royal Tenenbaums, Idiocracy, Ever After, Baz Luhrmann, Kevin Smith, Garden State, Scary John Waters, almost anything really...cheesey 80's movies are the best! Also anything that is awesomely bad...

Favorite Television

Current Favorites:

Lost, No Reservations, Stargate SG-1, Battlestar Galactica, the Office, Ghost Whisperer, Ghosthunters....all in all I really don't watch that much TV though it may seem that way...not enough time to waste on it...It generally serves as background noise.

Favorite Crafts

Crafts I love: Anything really. I will try anything at least once. Lately I have been getting more and more into sewing and stitching versus my beloved fine arts.

Currently I: Make Coffee for a living, Read a lot, Paint, acrylic and water color, Mixed Media, Paper Crafts, Batik, Draw, Knit, Crochet, Cross Stitch, Sew, Collage, Make Jewelry, and much much more.......I have WAY too many hobbies for one person.....and I still want to learn all about pinhole cameras!!!!!!!!

Things I Like

Things I love: All colors. If you can do pastels like in Coppola's Marie Antoinette then you are in good shape :) If you really need to know my absolute favorite colors they are Yellows, Pinks, Reds, Oranges....and strangely Teal and green....but all colors are good......If you have something you really want to do in a certain color, theme, whatever please by all means send it my way!!!!!! I am here for other people's art, and I cannot dictate what another person/artist wants to do.

Comment: Where do I start? You sent me an invisible ink pen! LOVE LOVE LOVE, and your pencil branch made me shriek with glee, only to then find the pouch and just about die of joy over the spud pin and the ceramic pendant (which I immediately said would look awesome with the top I was wearing) AND a squishy tiny hippo!!!! Only to get to that cool bead... I love metal work and that is perfect. I will peruse them will sipping some of the great tea you sent me. Thank you! and big hugs :)
Response: I am so very glad you liked the mini surprise bag! ;) I also love metal work! It's what my area of emphasis is in for my art education degree. I believe those are brass beads from Africa. Cheers!!!!!!!
