I'm a busy mom, wife and artist. I feel like I'm going crazy at times but find that doing art projects like this mends my soul and makes me a much better person. I've enjoyed some great college art classes. I love handmade paper, pen and ink drawings, birds, trees, craftsman homes, mexican arts and crafts, religious stuff including shrines, statues, candles, rosaries,... vintage anything, old photos, castles (ancient or made of sand at the beach), bonfires at the beach, funny people...Fav colors are what I imagine would be found in an old cottage in the countryside of France- not so much pastels but soft/deep hues. Enjoy reading "Cloth Paper Scissors" magazine, as well as other artsy reads. The best thing in life is having my 10 year old sons arms around my neck and his cheek against mine! sigh It goes by too fast...
I enjoy almost all types of music.standards, rock, pop, classical.
love old classics but also new indie movies as well. hate watching depressing movies. faves.... it's a wonderful life, roman holiday, little miss sunshine, pride and prejudice.
Would rather be getting glue and ink and paint on myself but i do love Master Chef, Modern Family, Cupcake Wars,old reruns of shows like Bob Newhart :)
Love crafting- ATC's, matchboxes, shrines, bottle caps- learning to knit- I also love paper mache, painting, and stamping, mixed media....I will try anything!
I love swapping and RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) - there's something about making things for someone that I don't even know that gives me a crafters high!
I'm really not picky as long as your heart is in the right place! my wish list-
Things I can't make and would love: hand knit washclothes, canvas bags (trying to not use plastic), dotee dolls or any dolls for that matter, hand knit booties, scarfs...
Some other things are...
little purse sized hand lotions, decorated envelopes, postcards, easy receipes, Atc's and supplies for them, decorated matchboxes,
unique playing cards, (don't need the whole deck! just a couple is fine!), bottle caps and bottle cap magnets, euro morning tea, old holy cards, old trading cards, old photos, any charms to use in crafts, anything vintage or retro, .......... anything that you put you heart into and enjoyed making! Those are the best :)
I really do try my best to send out my swaps on time.... sometimes I fail and I'm so sorry when I do BUT I can promise you that I will always get it to you in the end. PLEASE let me know if I've marked "sent" but you haven't received it in a resonable time.
