About Me

http://fabricfriendtara.blogspot.com

I have taken a position teaching Vocal Music in the Marshall Islands. Teaching in another country has been a dream of mine for a long time and I look forward to new adventures and experiences. I do have an APO address so the postage on letters, postcards and packages is the same as mailing in the USA, It may take a couple of extra days to receive a swap. Mail is comes in and goes out only twice a week and sometimes that dwindles to once a week.

Favorite Crafts

I love trying new techniques and crafts. I always have some type of journal going and usually more than one. I just finished a Black and White journal and love to use quotes or song lyrics in my work. Shrines are another passion of mine. I am not Catholic but St. Anthony is my saint. I think it is the mystical element that interests me. I sew, quilt and do other handwork while watching tv.

Favorite Books

*A Fine Balance-best book on India.

*Willing Spirits

*East of Eden

*Classics

Favorite Television

Not much tv watching going on where I am living now. But I do try and watch the Walking Dead, Sherlock, Antiques Roadshow, Downton Abbey, Supernatural and The Goldbergs.

Favorite Movies

Science Fiction, Musicals, What Dreams May Come, City of Angels, English movies, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring

Things I Love

Shabby, (not shabby chic),vintage and well loved stuff. Rusty bits and wooden boxes. McCoy pottery and vintage textiles. Rosaries, religious medals and icons. Anything cemetery/funeral related-pictures or postcards. Vintage circus especially side show performers. Steampunk and Irish/Celtic-no leprechauns or beer mugs please.

Rating

I try and rate the day I receive a swap. Because of where mail sometimes takes longer to reach you and to get to me. Please contact me if you feel it is taking to long and I am always happy to re-send. You can see from my profile I am a good swap partner and do not flake.

My only 3 rating-UPDATE

I was recently rated a 3 for a note card swap that I was in where the requirements were " the extras stated in swap description was required but it didn't say it clearly, I am sorry for that."-those were the words of the host (daichki) who rated me a three. I am in the process of contacting swap-bot administration in hopes of getting this issue resolved. If you look at my profile you can see my record....it speaks for itself. UPDATE It appears that this is not the first time a swapper has been rated unfairly by daichki. She has been removed from groups and I will not longer participate in a group or swap that she is involved with. I am still working on getting this unfair rating removed. UPDATE Problem solved and the rating has been changed to reflect that the swap was completed as per the swap description.

Hi Tara, thanks so much for your beautiful pages in my journal. I love all the wonderful detail. Awesome spread.

grandmaroro on Sep 2, 2016:

I am thrilled to find your work in my journal. I had been admiring it in all the other journals. I showed it to my husband, he said :You could do that:. Bless his heart - NOPE, not a chance. Just know I LOVE IT. AND I am so thankful you shared it with me.

PrairieKittin on May 31, 2016:
