about me

If you need an angel for any swap that I join please do not hesitate to ask!!

I am more than happy to do private swaps. postcards, journals, letters, photography, knitting are my favs! I'd be happy to do 1:1 newbie swaps too!

Born, raised, currently living and working in city I was born in, almost the same neighborhood even! It's cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

I love nature & nurture.

I'm a single mom to two fabulous kids. Best friend to myself.

favorite books

Favorite all time author is Pearl Buck. I love reading about China, also love reading about India.

Escape by Carolyn Jessop. Quick, but disturbing read. Carolyn escapes from the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints.

Glass Castle: A Memoir, by Jeanette Walls. So so good! From the time she was 3, Jeanette moves all around the country with her artist and gold via cyanide-leaching parents.

favorite crafts

I'm interested in paper crafts. Notecards. Trying out some minis. I've at least tried out some ATC's and hope to keep practicing.

I took a class to learn to knit! update: I can k, p, yo, bind off, cast on and follow a pattern! update2: I can do so much more than my last update! The gal who taught me to knit will hold a special place in my heart forever! LAST UPDATE: I am now an official knitter.

things that make me happy . .

~anything anatomical

~invertebrates, including insects, anemones, crustaceans, jellyfish.

~anything fertility and baby related - pregnancy/birth/labor/breastfeeding/honoring miscarriage

~elephants (i collect elephant postcards and small, used toy elephants) plus elephants are my all time favorite animal.

i love . . .

garlic raw and used in cooking
the scent of gardenias

tv, but rarely

I like cooking shows on food network. elton brown.

what not to wear, the two hosts are great!

I cry everytime I watch Cops and Jail. I have a lot of empathy. Well a lot of emotion too, once I cried watching Wheel of Fortune. The gal didn't win her cash.

Not tv but,
Perez Hilton Mothering Magazine


green all shades of pink


funk, reggae, classical, hip hop, country, pow-wow, ambient, indian music

Comment: Thanks for helping me travel to Tibet for a moment :0) I love it when adults dance like goons with kids-- so much fun to just move and lose track of who's watching! I danced with my younger cousins at a wedding recently and it made me miss dancing with my neighbors at block parties.

dustcollector rated for Postcards...Can't Get Enough! on Feb 9, 2009
Comment: Thank you for a card with a very scientific appearance. Is your mom in an elementary school or secondary? I'm getting uneasy with the financial situation being what it is here. I guess we will know about proposed budget cuts in our district tomorrow night at the board meeting. It's grim. Hope things are better in your neck of the woods. The DustCollector
