Activities-potter and so much

I am a potter who loves making small pottery. Small is anything under one inch. Nope, I don't collect them, I just make them and love to trade.

I have begun to take a letterpress printing class, ANY, ANY printing blocks would be so so cool and welcome.


I live in a very small city house and thus have a small garden. I love hens and chicks and hostas. Miniatures are my favorite hostas. Oh, don't get me wrong, I love the HUGE ones also.

historical re-inactment

I belong to the SCA: it's a historical reinactment group based on the middle ages. I do most early period stuff and quite a bit of Viking. I love Viking bling. The Viking women loved wearing lots of pretty glass beads from their broches. Silver bangle bracelets and sterling silver tokens.

sizes I wear a 2.10 (using the Indian measuring system)in glass bangles, I can wear a 2.8 in metal bangles (that converts to a 2.5"). My favorite is sterling silver.


I love all sorts of containers and bags. I use very, very few plastic bags from stores since I always carry my own. Some store bought, some home made. Always sturdy. I hope to get to the point I WON"T use plastic bags. Not quiet there yet.

About Me

I love fish, Etsy, reading, pottery, jewel tone colors, green and blue, fushia is my favorite color of all. If it's bright it's better. If it clashes even more fun.

I love traveling and have even been to China and back. Hand made mugs are the only ones I use, the store bough sit in the back of the cupboard. I love moo cards.

My birthday is Aug. 3rd. I'm a Leo and have been told I am a Leo. ;)


I am GLUTEN-FREE and live in a GF house.

I am VERY, VERY allergic to rabits/bunnies. Please don't send anything with rabbit anything near it. I also do not like a lot of fragrance, make me wheeze. Please don't send me smoky smelling things. I like to breath.

Comment: Thank you for the STUNNING journal--it is absolutely beautiful. You went far beyond the swap requirements. I wish I could give you several hearts! Thank you so much.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome ornament. I really like it. I like that it's not Christmasy, it's a cool little piece to hang on a cork board.

Comment: thank you for the cute dotee and extras. :)
Comment: I love the reusable tote bags you sent me! I actually saw those exact same ones awhile ago but didn't buy any and I've really regretted it ever since so it was so cool that you sent those to me! I can't wait to use them! (Very pretty colors, too.) I also liked the way you wrapped them in a cloth napkin; we use only cloth napkins at our house - no paper ones - so that will really come in handy, too. And of course, I *love* the "creative packing" aka fun wool roving!!!!! Thank you so much for really reading my profile and sending me stuff that I will really use and just love. You really deserve two hearts for this swap. :-)
Comment: Thanks for the doll & extra goodies! :P

Comment: What an amazing package! I collected it from the Post Office this morning and I could hardly wait until I got home before opening it (: It sounds like Helga had a great time with you. The photos are lovely as is the sewing kit, and I also loved receiving H's postcards along the way. Thank you very much for everything. J x
Response: Now that you have seen them I can make them public on my flickr account. I'm glad you like everything.
