About Me

I am an avid beader (been doing it for about 3 years). I have also been photographing for over a decade. I currently exhibit at the Lost River Craft Cooperative in West Virginia. My website also shows some photos (but no jewelry yet...). I work full-time as a manager of a group of scientists and engineers for the federal government near Washington D.C. I am 39 years old. My husband and I like to boat, go traveling (have been quite a few places around the globe already), and we also spend an inordinate amount of time at local happy hours...

Likes:

Cats, frogs, fish, boating, traveling internationally, science fiction/fantasy, history/archaeology

Dislikes:

anything religious

sports items

country-western music

anything dog-related

socks/shoes

jewelry (as i make my own, I have enough)

food items (I keep trying to diet, so please don' send food)

horror films

anything designed for use in the snow/cold (it doesn't get really cold here - but hand-crafted scarves are OK)

really "cutesy" nick-nacky stuff - unless hand-crafted (then it's great! if you made it yourself because I think that is really cool and I love handmade stuff of all types). Lately I have really been enjoying learning how to make goddess dolls, stuffies and dotee dolls.

Favorite Music

Just about anything (except bluegrass and country...and I'm not real crazy about rap either).

Favorite Books

Anything by Guy Gavriel Kay, most sci-fi/fantasy, historical fiction, history books, travel books, folklore.

Favorite Movies

Gladiator, Lord of the Rings trilogy, Star Wars movies, Star Trek movies, Titanic, Chronicles of Riddick, Batman movies, The Joy Luck Club

Favorite Television

Anything on the History, Discovery or Travel channels, Dr. Who

Favorite Crafts

Jewelry-making, photography, and I've just started making dotee dolls and stuffies!!

Favorite Colors

Hot Pink and anything iridescent

Wish List

Interesting Beer caps in good condition with the name of the beer on the cap (not bent or scratched)(I make the beer caps into earrings)

beer coasters

hand-crafted anything (except jewelry) (esp. dotee dolls, stuffies, goddess dolls, finished small quilts or quilt block coasters, potholders, etc

archaeology-related items (books, postcards, leaflets from archaeology sites)

fossils, pretty rocks

makeup (mascara, eye shadow, lipstick, blush - I do NOT need moisturizer, foundation, lip liner or eyeliner, lip gloss/balm (except that my husband uses Carmex in the little screw-cap container))

bath products (I really like facial scrubs and bath gel, and will use bubble bath or oil, but usually don't buy those - I don't use shampoo/conditioner, unless it's safe for hair color)

local/ethnic arts and crafts

anything medieval

china/porcelain

lace/tatting/crocheted items

folklore/fairy tales

small boxes

baskets

things for my work office

books about other cultures/countries/history

antiques

african art and carvings

gemstones/beads/beading components

american indian stuff

beer-wine-scotch themed items

stuff for my cats (they especially like glittery, sparkly pom-pom balls to carry around in their mouths!)

anything related to earthquakes or geology

Thanks for hosting ths Medusa Dotee Swap!! I think we were all pushed creatively with this one. This kind of swap is exactly why I joined the swap bot community!

Thank you for the beautiful necklace you sent in place of the dotee I never got from twisted03raven. I love it! You are a fantastic hostess and I wish I could give you tons of hearts for it.

I will angel you for the Dotee against breastcancer swap. I'm sewing right now, so I can mail her this week and you must have her by the first week of June.

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that there are two new Feltbots swaps, the first two in the Christmas Ornaments series that'll be running every month until Christmas. The first themes are birds and trees. Please take a look and join if you're interested.

Thank you for the wonderful angel package for the "favorite hand-made craft" swap! The photo is beautiful and my daughter scoffed up the blue jewelry!

It was WAY beyond what I expected! Thank you again! Mandy
