About Me

Urban KC DINK, I teach English at an all-girls school. I have less time for piddling around in my art room than I would like (but don't we all). I'm just starting to get into ATCs. My husband and I love to travel and primarily that's where scrapbooking comes in. I also like to make cards, bake thriftshop and do other pseudo household goddess stuff. My aesthetic is more weird, edgy and offbeat than cutesy.We also like to run and ride bikes.

Favorite Music

U2 Boppy mod kid pop (Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Muse, Feist) Southern Fried Blues/Rock (Black Crowes, North Mississippi All-Stars, Professor Longhair, Muddy Waters Eclectic singer/songwriter (Bob Schneider, Ray LaMontagne, Lucinda Williams, Corrine Bailey Ray, Madeline Peyroux, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson) Oldies but goodies (Janis, The Band, Beatles, Neil Young) Dirty Little Secret (80s hair metal--I would love to have back all of my fan mags from my teenage years to use in collages)

Favorite Books

Too many to mention. I'm a pretty voracious reader John Irving is THE greatest living writer Lit fiction, memoir/essay, well written non-fiction and historical fiction (From Into Thin Air to Loving Frank) Curtis Sittenfeld Dave Eggers David Sedaris Augsten Burroughs Hollis Gilespie--If you like the above and haven't found her yet, you need to

Favorite Television

Always Sunny in Philladelphia The Office and 30 Rock SNL Daily Show Colbert Report The Tudors--so over the top, how can you not love it? CSI is my guilty pleasure, marathon for the 100th time? Oh, yeah.

Favorite Crafts

Paper Arts Altered Books Art Journaling Card making I'm a rubber stamp hoarder ATCs (new to it) Collage Scrapbooking Painting/Drawing (dabble) I soooo don't sew

Likes

Rubber stamps of any kind Paper (good looking scraps are cool by me) Stickers Weird patterns or colors 1950s/Atomic age pics/ads designs Old photos Old magazines Old books Ephemera Asian themed stuff

Not into

Foam Animal prints Overwhelming glitter Country cutesy Anime Hello Kitty

Shout outs

Comment: I read TSAR two years ago, and the only thing I really remember is that quote and the fact that when Hemingway talks about fishing for a chapter...he's not really talking about fishing.

I am sorry to have to ban you from the Monthly ATC Swappers group but your ratings have fallen to low as group rules states for you to be a member..

Starrby on Sep 7, 2010:

Hi Carrie, I've already sent you two messages (both still marked unread), so this is my try to ask you if you received my "ATC's are for Trading: August" swap. I sent it almost 4 weeks ago, so it really should have gotten there by now. Please rate if you got it, or send me a message if you didn't and I will send another. Thanks! ~Starrby

Drachenfrau on Sep 6, 2010:

Heya Carrie,

did you get my pm about the "The Heart of Buddha"-swap? Did my package arrive? It's been quite a while and I'm a little bit worried. :-(

Cheers

Moni
