About Me

I lived in southern California with my husband and a dog. My 3 children are 25, 22 & 20 respectively. My eldest one works in San Francisco, middle one goes to college in San Diego and the youngest is in Berkeley. For the past few years, my husband and I have taken numerous road trips in the golden state. I was born in Taiwan and have being in the US for almost 30 years. Thus I'm bilingual in English and Mandarin. I'm trying to learn some Spanish for future travelling purpose. I like to make things and try new crafts. My favorite craft materials are paper and fabric. I've enjoyed crocheting in the past, making amigurumi and some quick projects. I've also tried paper tole, ATCs, hand-carved stamps and felt mascots. My current passion is making junk journals.

Favorite Music

Classical music and movie soundtracks. When I'm driving, I listen to audiobooks.

Favorite Movies

Midnight in Paris, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Mary and Max, Julie and Julia, Up, Amelie, The Cat Returns, My Neighbor Totoro, Stanger than Fiction.

Favorite Television

Sherlock, Monk & Veronica Mars are my all time favorites. I also watched sitcoms (Grace and Frankie, Parks and Recreation) and documentaries on Netflix and Amazon video.

Favorite Crafts

origami, scrapbooking, handmade book, papertole, crochet, beading, applique, sock animal, felt mascot.

Things I'd like to receive

paper or fabric with mermaid, fairy, cupcake, cat, dog, cute animals

Comment: What a great graphic ATC! I love the stitching on it. Wearable art class? That sounds like so much fun! I envisioned a bunch of people parading around in Kentucky Derby regalia after reading your note and it made me smile. Thank you!

Comment: Hi Esther, Yes the winters even in southern Illinois can be brutal at times. If you ever make it to Illinois we will have to plan a meet up. Hope your thumb and index finger have healed, burns are so painful!! Hubby and I got out and walked today even though the wind chill was in the 30's. Wouldn't have been too bad if that wind would have died down!! I am ready for spring but no matter what the rodent says (LOL) southern Illinois always seems to have 6 more weeks of winter except in some unusual years!! Loved the ATC, so creative, thanks so much and for the note. Hope we swap again soon!

Comment: Hi Esther! I'm simply in love with your magpie journal! I love that you buy books so you can cut them up for your art--I do the same! Your little 'letters' throughout the journal were lovely and your sweet origami treasures were wonderful! Your journal is simply beautiful and I hope we are partnered again soon. Thank you so much for creating something so very special.

Profile check for Donna Reed Household ATC Series swap #1. This swap we will use a Plastic Fork in some way to create our ATC. Welcome to the swap!

Hi! I saw you like beading so I thought you might like to see the card I recently made with beading on it. Beaded Morning Glory Card Hope you like it! I'd love to try art journalling but I'm a bit too A-type, perfectionist to make it work but that's exactly why I need it. Hope you have fun with it! You must be a saint to live with 3 teenagers. Whew! I also enjoy movie soundtracks especially musicals. My fave is Chicago.

Hello, here is my comment for the "Read my profile and write a comment" swap. A while ago , once upon a time, yes ... I was very busy with crocheting. Sometimes I think I could make myself a pair of slippers (a wish of me is to have crochet slippers). Never got to it! But it is the first time I hear of amigurumi. I love it! You are talented with all the crafts going. Keep it up! We share scrapbooking as point of interest. Hope you do well.

LunaMoody on Mar 17, 2011:

Thank you for the great profile comment. We should do a dotee doll swap together sometime. It could be fun.

Read Profile and Leave Comment Swap- you have a very nice profile. I have always wanted to learn how to crochet. But have yet to get around to it. I took an peek at your flickr. Did you make that cookie scarf it's so cute and unique.

latinmermaid on Mar 15, 2011:

Hi there! I am one of your partners for "Read my profile and write a comment" swap. I hope this msg finds you doing well :) Fromw hat I read of your profile, it seems you have many talents in creating. I had to look up amigurumi - very cute! I don't know how to crochet or do some of the crafts you listed. I enjoy drawing, but would like to be as handy with making things as you seem to be. Orange and blues are a fantastic combination, btw! Nice colors. I just got some mermaid paper from a fellow swapper - I had never seen it before. I love mermaid very much! Have you received fabric with mermaids on it? How could would that be and unique! Anyway, thanks for sharing a bit about yourself with us..happy swapping and have fun trying new crafts :D

Hi! I'm leaving a comment for the "Read my profile and write a comment" swap.

Crochet, Faeries, and Teenagers are some of my favorites too! I've been crocheting since I was old enough to hold a hook, I think. I have 2 teen age boys. I like faeries a lot!
