About Me

Now to a fun filled look into my world!

I am a glam goth pink and spooky gal, with a huge collection of clothes, shoes, purses, jewelry, hats, stationary, yarn and books.

Subculture fashion is my favorite! Going anywhere from super gothic, to punk rock, to glam rock, to rockabilly, to psychobilly and to pink cutesey lolita.

Some of my hobbies are letter writing, reading (sci fi and the classics), crocheting, dancing, shopping and stamp carving.

I am a princess in my spooky cool castle with my prince charming and we are so happily ever after!

Favorite Movies

I am in LOVE with the TCM channel, old movies from the 1920's-1950's make me so happy. The clothes, the style, the refinement, the actors and actresses, the singing and dancing, the magical sets they created - all of it adds up to a world of glamour that this world lacks in this day and age.

Anything with Bettie Davis, Marlene Deitrich, Claudette Colbert, Joan Crawford, Doris Day, Rosalind Russel, Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire, Esther Williams, Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, James Cagney, Jimmy Stewart, Marilyn Monroe or any other glorious gentleman and ladies that graced the screen!

more current films i have enjoyed - Pans Labrynth, Whos That Girl, Desparately Seeking Susan, Vampires Kiss, Army of Darkness, Two Weeks Notice, Cabaret, Titus, Chicago, The Count of Monte Cristo, Cry Baby, Hairspray, Fando & Lis, Edward Scissorhands, Bettlejuice, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Il Postino, Cinema Paradiso, Old Boy, Lady Vengance, The Lord of the RIngs, Love me if you Dare, Stardust, V is for Vendetta and A Very Long Engagement.

Favorite Television

RuPauls Drag Race (SHARON NEEDLES!!!!), Once Upon A Time, Project Runway, makeover shows (everyone should get a makeover!), SHERLOCK (!!!!!), Downton Abbey and various trashy reality TV shows..housewives etc.

Favorite Crafts

Crochet! Stamp Carving, Sewing (very little skill in that one but its fun to try!), Baking, jewelry making and various other fun little projects!

Favorite Music

Goth, Industrial, Synthpop, New Wave, Rockabilly and Psychobilly. Some favorites in no particular order - Orange Sector- Leaether Strip- Leichtmatrose- Faderhead- Morrisey- Din{a}tod- The Cramps- Sasquatch and the Sickabillys- Doris Day- The Andrews Sisters- Cake- The Yeah Yeah Yeahs- The Sounds- Prince- Madonna- Red Flag- She Wants Revenge- Radiohead- Ours- Garbage- The Retrosic- Wolfsheim- Covenant- Cinephile- Rasputina- oh i could go on and on and on...

Favorite Books

Authors such as ~ Jane Austin, Neil Gaiman, Simon R Greene, Kim Harrison, Laurell K Hamilton, Franz Kafka, Edith Wharton, Sharon Shinn, George Elliot, Francesca Lia Block, Ayn Rand and Linda Goodman to name a few. Books ~ Witch Baby, Blonde, Gone With the Wind, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Neverwhere, Strange Candy, Love Signs, How to spot a Bastard by his Star Sign, The Secret Language of Birthdays, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Atlas Shrugged. i really DON'T like Charlaine Harrisons vampire series, but i love most vampire books!


Things i would be oh-so-happy to receive-

Kawaii stationary, ATCs, Handmade Cards, diecuts, stamped images on colored paper, paper scraps, coupons, deco tape, stickers, Calligraphy (pens, nibs & markers), fabulous yarn, vintage photos and ads, reusable shopping bags, notepads with pretty paper, southwest landscape photography, steampunk and goth artwork, rubber stamps OOLONG TEA and cool fabric.

I also see all these crafty items here that I don't know about - so if anyone would like to make me a dotee, matchbox, whimsy jar or other fun little craft i DO LOVE HANDMADE!

Comment: I absolutely love my yupo paper covered in gorgeous alcohol inks. It totally looks like an agate. You are so super duper talented. 💜
Response: Thanks! It was fun to do, I've got to try on other surfaces! Let's swap again SOON!

lynnerfb rated for SMS to LFB - send it home on Jan 25, 2018
Comment: Wow I just can't believe how long this journal was out there 3 1/2 years. I really forgot to this one. I do have another journal out there, wonder where it is.
Response: OH! You did have two going around, I thought someone that commented about sending yours out last round was confused on whose journal it was. Glad this one made it home!
Comment: Cool envelope, nice journal page. How lovely to have taken a class with Dina Wakely! That puts you way ahead of the game. I'm a little surprised you didn't use that Day of the Dead Head stamp that was on the envelope for your "person". I don't have stamps of people either, except for Alice. Thank you!
Response: Glad you liked it! I'm really enjoying this series of swaps! Thank you for the sweet rating!
Comment: Wow, this page blew me away. I absolutely love the embossing and the way you worked with the foil. Thank you so much for sharing this with me! And thank you for joining this swap. xoxo
Response: Thanks! I had fun playing with foil - I guess embossing with an embossing folder is the way to go - lots of others in the swap seemed to struggle with the foil. Thanks for hosting this fun series!

Response: I SO enjoy creating all different types of prints on paper, and that journal is a collection of techniques! SO HAPPY to share it with a fellow artist and explorer!

secretterrabite rated for Mini Art Journal 31.7 on Oct 18, 2017
Comment: Love your page! It's so vibrant :-) I'm so envious of a Balzer workshop - I love her so much :-) This is fun, art journal love :-)
Response: Awesome! Let's keep sharing the art journal love world wide! : ) Thanks for the sweet compliments!
skinny52 rated for Mini Art Journal 31.5 on Oct 4, 2017
Comment: Very nice, I'm happy to be in this swap!
Response: Thanks for doing this one on one with me! I'll be happy to swap between rounds anytime! : )
lynnerfb rated for Mini Handmade Art Journal R31 on Sep 25, 2017
Comment: Beautiful little book. Will try to doit justice. thank you
Response: Thanks! Have fun creating and I'm sure it will be wonderful!
Comment: Nice movement - I really like the contrast between the hot matte and the cool shiny elements. You're right that how to bind it is a puzzle, although a pleasant one. The only problem is that the black labels aren't sticking - they're curling up and falling off. I think I have the right glue for that, though; we'll see. Thanks!
Response: Sorry about the labels! I should just glue them all down even if they seem to stick - good to know. Thanks for the compliments and the lovely rating!

Comment: Thank you for letting me know the about the owners circumstances, I'll shoot you a message before the next swap to see if I should send it on or home.

When you get to Prague, go to the top of the castle first thing in the morning, and get a ticket to see the whole castle. When Beth and I went we loitered as we climbed to the castle, and didn't have time to see more than a few sights in the castle. Next time...

Hello Sara, and happy fall!
I got your postcard today in the mail, I have the last one you sent tucked neatly in a manilla envelope so I don't forget to bring it in the car with us when we drive down to CA. We'll be leaving here on the 17th so somewhere around then I will hunt down some sort of excellent postcard(s) to send your way. In the mean time, I hope all is going well for you! My apologies for the delay (:
