About Me

I always have my cameras with me. I like any kind of cameras as long as they take a photo.Also, I collect NON-working, broken SLR lenses for any make of camera.

Love the colors blue, teal, turquoise, orange, and silver....and combos of pink & orange, or lime green & turquoise

I love sterling silver jewelry (it's ALL I wear) and especially appreciate handmade sterling silver jewelry....also like blue topaz, and pearls (all colors, including dyed) I like bangles and bracelets. Necklaces (at least 18 inches long) and rings (US sizes 6, 7, or 8) I love leather cuff bracelets too.

I have long, brown, naturally curly hair

I wear pierced earrings (sterling silver of course), and have multiple holes on each ear, but prefer to wear dangles on the lower holes and studs on the rest.

I love WHITE tulips.

I like to GeoCache.

I like handmade items...just about any kind! I like to see the caring and love put into something by a creative mind. I love shopping on Etsy! (I have a faves link above, but it is not meant for you to purchase from there...just give you helpful ideas....unless it for an Etsy swap!)

I like the moon. Either a full moon or just a thin crescent moon. And stars too. Shooting stars are cool too! but I especially LOVE THUNDER & LIGHTNING!!!

I prefer fruity scents. My favorite flavors are strawberry, coconut, cinnamon... and I love coffee too!

I love to visit New York City. I love the sights, sounds, and people-watching.

I want to go to the UK (England and Ireland), and the Mediterranian areas of Greece, Italy and Turkey, so anything related would be great. I also would like to visit India.

Favorite Music

I have an iPod and use iTunes. I like an eclectic mix of music....

Elton John, Billy Joel, Daughtry, The Bacon Brothers, Taylor Hicks, Bing Crosby, Garth Brooks, Huey Lewis & The News, Blue Man Group, Harry Connick Jr, Nickelback, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Chris Stapleton, Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart...

Favorite Books

Fiction and non-fiction...comedy, suspense, and others...

Harry Potter series, The DaVinci Code, Angels & Demons, The Hitchikers' Guide to the Galaxy author Garrison Keillor, author Robert Fulghum, author Mary Roach, The Humans

And I LOVE Calvin & Hobbes comic strip (I have ALL the books),

Favorite Movies

Ocean's 11+12+13 and 8, DaVinci Code, Angels & Demons, Inferno, A League of Their Own, Steel Magnolias, City Slickers, What About Bob?, Fried Green Tomatoes, Forrest Gump, A Christmas Story, O' Brother Where Art Thou?, Now You See Me 1 & 2, Tag, Game Night

Favorite Television

older BBC Comedies....Are You Being Served?, Chef!, Black Adder, Keeping Up Appearances, The Vicar of Dibley, Father Ted, Fawlty Towers

Favorite Crafts

I dabble in lots of crafts....since I am creatively inclined and find it easy to do most things......I've done just about everything....watercolors, polymer clay, jewelry making, calligraphy, crocheting, and paper crafts, rubber stamping, and lately, JUNK JOURNALS.... to name my more favorites....but my true love is PHOTOGRAPHY. I specialize in wedding photojournalism ( see my website http://www.michellepetersphotography.com and photo blog http://blog.michellempeters.com ) but I will shoot anything with my Canons!

Collections & Likes

I collect elephants, small (1-2 servings) vintage ceramic Hall teapots (and other makes), vintage (1950's) purple cows, snowglobes (snowdomes), blue glassware (especially wine bottles) and any type of snowmen figurines and decorations that are NOT decorated for a specific holiday (just winter-like, not Christmasy, so I can leave them out all year round). Also, non-US coins.

MORE Likes: mythological phoenix, Swatch watches, elephants, owls, gnomes, koi, crop circles, labyrinths, Stonehedge, Easter Island moai statues, laughing Buddas, cartoon robots, circles, cameras, vintage & Disney Alice in Wonderland (especially Cheshire Cat & Mad Hatter), Disney's Brer Rabbit (from Song of the South), Tim Burton movies, artist/illustrator Eric Carle, VanGogh, and Monet.


DISLIKE flavors/scents: spearmint, licorice, watermelon, cantalope, honeydew, french vanilla, hazelnut

Not crazy about pastel colors....but especially DISLIKE pastel green.

Things I Want to Learn

Inchies, Whimsy Jars, Art Journaling

I like interesting epherma....foreign stuff is fun...

If you help get me started...with instructions, examples, or materials.....I'd be giddy with joy! :O)

What can you expect from me...

A well-thought out swap. Thoughtful items with thoughtful packaging. I try to recycle when I can (boxes, packing and wrapping) and appreciate when I receive shipping that has been recycled too!

I send on time. And rate as soon as swaps are received.
