About Me

I'm a self-taught folk artist, learning everything I can from my favorite dollmakers, and hoping to attempting to make my own patterns! My favorite dolls to make are Art Dolls and Halloween dolls because Halloween is my FAVORITE! I l also love primitive dolls - but only weird, grungy ones. Not the country look.

Three years ago I had a stroke at the age of 41! Had no risk factors - don't smoke, drink, or have high blood pressure. But what I DID have was a mouthful - Antiphosholipid Antibody Syndrome, or APS for short. All that means is that I have sticky blood that easily clots, and a clot traveled up to my brain! I'm okay, though. Have a bit of a visual field loss, balance issues, cognitive difficulties, and an ongoing fight with depression, but I'm very thankful I'm alive! I'm on disability which means I'm VERY BORED, so I appreciate any email or letters!

I was born in New Orleans & live in Baton Rouge.

My family is my center. My husband is my favoritest husband EVER (and my only one, but that's beside the point) and my daughters are only the best in the world. I also have a wunnerful, newly married stepson, who lives in Texas. Rounding out our little family are three cats and three dogs! We may smell a bit, but we love each other!!

I am also addicted to color! My house in decorated in what I call "Wonka-vision". My favorite colors are purple, green, & orange. And blue. And yellow. Red. Magenta. You get the gist ...

Welcome to me!!

Favorite Music

  • Frank Zappa
  • King Crimson
  • the Beatles
  • Flight of the Conchords
  • Loreena McKennitt
  • Stellamara
  • Kornog

... oh, Lord. There's no way to list it all. I'll just say I love everything. (Except country. Sorry.) Not all at the same time. That'd sound like demented jazz or something.

Favorite Books

  • Christopher Moore's stuff
  • Neil Gaiman
  • the Lord of the Rings
  • Potterholic
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • the His Dark Materials series
  • Dorrie the Witch books

My favorite books are as eclectic as my musical taste!

I'm forgetting a million things, I know... I'll add as I remember.

  • BBC's Sherlock
  • Sherlock Holmes (Granada Series)
  • Downton Abbey

  • the Hobbit!!
  • All the Harry Potter movies, of course
  • Peter's Friends
  • XMen movies
  • Sense & Sensibilities
  • Nightmare Before Christmas
  • millions more ...

Favorite Crafts

  • Dollmaking (art dolls & primitives)
  • Art journalling
  • ATC's
  • learning to knit (gotta loooong way to go)
  • anything HALLOWEEN!

Nifty Gifties Ideas!

  • I have a serious sock addiction.

  • Halloween anything (just not gory)
  • Anything related to the moon and/or stars
  • Fabrics (any kind, LOVE obnoxiously loud fabrics)
  • Sewing notions
  • Anne Taintor anything!
  • Anything related to my favorite books, tv, movies

If you just can't figure me out & don't know what to send, DON'T FRET! I appreciate anything anyone sends because it's the thought that counts, not the gift! Plus I love getting mail. So it's all good.

Comment: I have only opened the box so far and stopped because - wow. You may have made my month. My thank you packet is already created, now I just have to actually go through everything. Update: if I could give you 50 stars, I totally would. It was such a thoughtful package and Muggies (she’s been nicknamed) now proudly sits on my desk at work guarding my stationary like a proud mama bear. ;) Thankyouthankyouthankyou!! Xo
Comment: You certainly showed her a great time. I love the picture of you. We lived in Destrehan for 10 years. Still have family in Baton Rouge. This was such a fun swap, I hope we do it again.
