Favorite Crafts

I like to do collages with old magazines(from the 50's) and department store catalogs(40's and 50's) and the sewing pattern catalogs(ditto with the years). I collect paperdolls and often use the extra clothes in my collages. Most of my work is on the humorous or (punny) side of life. My favorite color in teal-turq. with red or bright green and navy I have two cats (calico named Annabelle Lee and black cat named Lenore) Even though I have cats-I collect Scotty Dog things!

Favorite Television

Right now my favorites are anything on ID(Investigation Discovery)channel and American Gothic. Looking forward to the new Season of American Horror Story! I like comedies like Raising Hope, Miranda,some quirky comedies 0n Amazon Originals. Of my favorite quirky type shows that haven't lasted on tv that I adore are shows like Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls and Pushing Up Daisies-not To mention Beauty and Beast-the tv series called Friday the 13 that took place in an antique store and those who care for and returned if lost evil antiques. I used to skip last period study hall in high school to come home and watch Dark Shadows-so glad Johnny Depp did his take on it and now I can watch the original ones on Netflix streaming thanks to the renewed interest.

Favorite Books

I like mystery books and paranormal fantasy books. Nothing heavy and gritty,though. I will read young adult mystery series and novels when I want a fast read.

Favorite Crafts

I used to paint on wood-shapes that were cut out by my husband on a scroll saw. Lots of holiday decorative pieces. Did mini quilts but no sewing was involved-it was all done with fusible web.I had a booth in a crafter's mall when that was all the rage but it closed up and that's when I turned to crafting for my own enjoyment and not trying to fill up a booth. I still occassionally do the name shape when a new baby is born and they want a stand up name for the child's bedroom. Now I enjoy doing collages-altered books-ATC cards and birthday books(I take a baby sized board book and turn it into this is your life and everything that was happening on the year you were born-whom were some other famous people born your same year and even the same day-who were the politicians-what was the price of goods and what items first came out the year-that kind of information.

Favorite Music

I guess the category of my music would be called modern folk-upbeat women singers-like Dar Williams and Jonatha Brookes. Like the oldies too like Janis Ian and Cat Stevens-James Taylor-Jim Croce-etc. My husband introduced me to bluegrass music and old timey blues jazz-like most of that too. His favorite is Bob Dylan but I sometimes find it hard to understand the words he is singing!! I went through a period where I just listened to John Gorka and Lucy Kaplinsky and Christine Kane-they are good if now a little sad-so I'm taking a break from them now.

Favorite Movies

My favorite movies are ones with Johnny Depp in them be they animated or live action. the animated ones like Coraline-Corpse Bride-Nightmare Before Christmas. Also like anything with Vincent Price in it-like the Edgar Allan Poe ones. Gothic old ones like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. And of course anything Muppets.

About Me

I got married in 1982-we have no kids. He came from a family of thirteen siblings and I was the baby of the family having two older sisters. I worked in B Dalton bookstores all the while I was going to college and then some. I was in charge of the children's book sections and I still like to read and keep up with the new books. I work for a company that helps mentally and physically challenged people to become more independent and that is very rewarding-I have done that now for five years-came out of retirement to do this. I take people to dr appts-grocery shopping-bowling-to the YMCA to exercise and one dear little lady that is 91 loves to go to the thrift shops so that it when I find alot of my goodies for doing my crafts too! UPDATE -I retired in April of 2013 and now am having more time to do more crafting and swapping. I didn't need to work anymore so I figured it was time to take care of myself instead of everyone else-the love my former clients dearly and still see a couple of them on a regular friendship basis. I moved my art area from a tiny extra bedroom upstairs to a large 4 season porch that goes across the whole front of the house(on the main floor)-natural lighting windows on three sides-the other side opens up to the living room. Now at least my husband and I are on the same floor when he is watching his sports on tv and I am creating art! I have a cat tower in the front window near my craft desk so that my furry babies(Annabelle Lee and Lenore are just about five years old ) That tiny bedroom upstairs got turned into a music room-my husband just bought an electric guitar. Thankfully he also bought headphones with that so he doesn't scare the kitties too much! Update-my husband went back to work -came out of retirement for his dream job. The federal judge in town asked him to be his law clerk for an appointment of four years!

Craft items

Things I would like to get::

Paper dolls Doilies-small paper different shapes and colors . Unused party decorative napkin/rice paper napkins-party ribbons decorations.

Old photos-black and white{people-old houses-cemataries -dark}-Pictures of just everyday happening with everyday people

Old postcards Postage stamps(I actually have a stamp album that I work on every now and then)

Anything black cat.

Anything Halloween.

Anything Edgar Allan Poe-I have a Poe shrine in my art area

Cheshire cat from the tim burton version of alice in wonderland-this cat this turquoise

Anything from tim burtons nightmare before Christmas. Anything Coke-I have a coke and chef themed kitchen

Anything scotty dog-prefer the black ones-but the whilte ones are cute too parts of old magazines-from the 1950's and before

Yarn with lots of texture and more than one color going on-I make bookmarks and tags and these are my tassel parts on the top.

Large print text-great for cutting out a word here and there for a collage.Any kind of book text.

Old maps and old illustrations from geography type literature . Printed tissue paper-love to layer it over text or such for a new look-tissue paper from old sewing patterns-embroidery floss -tiny bits of small printed fabric

Scraps of tiny print scrapbook paper-like glittery ones-good of small details on my ATC and collages. Maps

Rubber Stamps-on blocks or cling- acrylic

I'm an old hippie and love anything with the peace sign on it!
