I love crafts! I almost majored in art in school, but alas just find many ways to express myself at home. I love drawing, marbled paper, ATC’s, matchboxes, scrap booking, glass bead making, jewelry making, card crafting, sewing, painting, ect. The list goes on. There is no limit to creativity!
I listen to just about everything except Rap. I also have gotten away from negative, wallowing in my own grief music that I was oh so drawn to as a teenager. I am happy now so I find if hard to relate to.. My fav. bands use to be Skinny Puppy and Depeche Mode. I still occasionally listen to the later. I like Loreena McKennitt, Enigma, Delerium, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Tori Amos, Poe, U2, Live, Days of the New, Vas, Azam Ali, Moby, Candlebox, Dead Can Dance, Jewel, Enya, Celtic Women, ZZ Top, and Skynard to name a few. I love cultural music! I listen to so many different types of music that it would be hard to do my tastes justice. Good examples on Myspace.
I love books! I think my fav. books would have to be the Tao Te Ching and the Book of Hopi, Man's Search for Meaning. I do a lot of reading on Celtic History so there is an extended list there along with many philosophy books from Plato and Netzche. I am presently reading Vegetable, Animal, Miracle. Awesome book. Really getting into Curio Wonder Cabinet's so vintage nature study books are awesome- typcially those with prints. I also enjoy many ancient history cultures in addition to Celtic like Egyptian, Roman, Native American, Viking, Chinese, Nubian, ect. Theology.
Well, there's allot to me:
- My favorite colors are blue, purple, silver and green but I have recently started to play with my feminine side and pink is rather appealing to - I love anything cultural and find cultures and different nationalities beautiful so as you can imagine I love anything foreign such as food, dress, art, jewelry, and music. - I love the outdoors and collect rocks and insects which I am ever amazed by their vast variety of colors. I wear typically natural and organic jewelry. I love Turquoise and silver, but also enjoy a vast variety of other semi-precious natural minerals. I spend allot of time with my husband and 3 boys hiking, canoeing, rockhounding, and camping.
- I am very much into green and organic living, survivalist and pioneering. - I enjoy writing and pen and ink drawing. I am a book nut and love reading. I also scrap book and make cards. I occasionally make my own glass beads. - I love the Victorian era, the Art Nouveau and Pre-Raphaelite movements.
I really have too many hobbies and interest to list here. Life is exciting and I love to experience all of it! I love what America stands for, all those who protect us here on the home front and a far. The American flag makes me proud…and cry. I am also an Anti-Debt, Dave Ramsey supporter. He’s my hero!

What I am looking for at the moment:
Day of the Dead
Cute vintage birds
Vintage pharmaceutical items, labels
Domestic vintage antiques
Old Crackerjack/ Gum ball charms
Cute button pins
Catholic, Voodoo, Curanderismo (fasinated by the cultural aspects and how they mingle with Christianity)
Kawaii, I would love a blind box of some sort, bento items.
Special thanks to the following angels:
Thanks to Swan for angeling the Children's Scavanger Swap for my boys.
II do actually do have some dislikes: Disney
Plastic unless its vintage or having to do with scrap booking. This includes beads and jewelry.
Famous people- don't care about them except the occasional movie.
Sewing, knitting, needle work- I love receiving but don't do any of them myself. Now I would like to get into felted animals and do enjoy unusual fabrics for ATC's but that's my limit.
Barbie- I hate her. She sucks as a role model and that goes for all the other dolls similar to her now. Strawberry Shortcake is the exception.
Romance Novels, Girly and Beauty Mags. I suspect Martha might be my exception. She has a few cute things in hers.
Mean people. I don’t understand why or how folks can be mean, rude or uncaring.
