Howdy- back after a hiatus of a few years. Hoping to get back in to doing more art.
I am an eternal 8 year old. I love dogs, greyhounds in particular. We have two pups currently, a greyhound girl and a lab mix puppy boy. They are amazing and devious and make me laugh every day!
SWAPS I am very conscientious about my swap partners getting their goodies. Please let me know if something does not get to you prior to rating me a one; I offer everyone the same courtesy. If there would be any issue with sending out late to you, I would definitely be in contact with you. Also, I rate as soon as possible after receiving something. If anything EVER comes postage due, please let me know and I will fix the situation. This happened in the past --when I had taken a parcel to the post office to be hand-weighed.
If you haven't gotten a rating from me, I probably haven't gotten your swap. Thanks!
I love altering- anything! I have been a pack rat since I was born & love to make things that are a little "off" out of found objects.
I like trying anything crafty - mostly into paper crafts and re-using stuff. I am not very technically oriented, so those are the type of crafts that I don't attack with gusto.

I am a sucker for orphan notecards or cards...I have a bunch from thrift/yard sales...don't be surprised if you get something really cheesy from me!, art supplies, window shopping, photos-I don't take much, but LOVE looking at other people's - even if they are new, old, mundane things, anything..., Gorey, tiny, cute non-practical things, stuffed animals, rocks, fossils, found objects, Disapproving Rabbits, finding an old journal or ledger & reading the entries (perhaps a bit of voyeurism here?), peacocks, monsters, scary stuff (even though I am SO EASILY freaked out!), puppy kisses, pins/brooches (especially cheesy ones), things that are abnormally large or small (giant combs, giant sunglasses, those huge pencils), fair trade, journaling, donkeys, jokes, those large plastic seasonal yard decorations --they are so bad, they are good! (currently have one sheep from a manger scene, a chocolate bunny, some misc. halloween ones), hand making rugs from material strips with a modified toothbrush as a weaving aid, old cross-stitch samplers, playing cards--anything with interesting/vintage backs, board games- love the cards, pieces, spinners, all types of fabric, bright colors...
REALLY love nifty handmade pcs.
most scented stuff, lotions, make-up, when everything starts to look the same, most pre-done scrapbooking supplies, things with my name or initial, princess, girly-girl, drama! I am definitely more ARTSY than CUTESY!!
I love to read. Alice in Wonderland is my all-time favorite book; I also love Dr. Suess. I There are certain books I re-read every year - Alice in Wonderland, the Harry Potter series, the Chronicles of Narnia...Children's books are a favorite of mine...I have a large collection...I read them and also treaure them for the illustrations. I tend to gravitate towards "the classics" but am always up for any new read. I like books with dogs in them. Some favorite authors: DH Lawrence, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, C Jung, Lewis Carroll, David Sedaris, Jane Austin, Ambrose Bierce.
