About Me

I'm a crafter, mom of adult identical twin daughters and married a very long time. I have a little rescue dog named Molly, my husband has a little dog and we have 2 grandoggers. So if you're allergic to pets, we might not be a good match. We live in a non-smoking home, so, yay!

-I loved visiting England! I now am obsessed with Big Ben. One day I hope to go back and stay in Bath.

-I don't really have a favorite color, I love them all, especially bright, cheery ones such as yellow and white together. I also like pink, purple, mermaid blues and greens, red...see? Just about anything.

-I like the mild side of steampunk, flora and fauna, girly and quirky stuff.

-I'm a big fan of Julie Nutting paper dolls by Prima and have quite a large collection of the stamps and dies. I was lucky enough to take a couple of in-person classes with Julie Nutting!

-I collect old sewing buttons, hankies, books, and craft supplies.

-I do not care for flavored teas like mint or fruity, (but I DO like Earl Grey, black or orange pekoe such as good ol' Lipton), I don't drink coffee and do not care for the smell of it either, and no perfumey things like scented candles, bath bombs or other items with strong odors.

-I do not care for things on the violent side of creepy.

-I do not care for anything having to do with horoscopes, ouija boards or tarot cards.

-I'm nerdy and eclectic, and like for things to bring me happiness and joy.

Favorite Crafts

I am currently obsessed with learning about mixed media, and I dabble in watercolor and card-making.

I'm learning how to use the Gelli Plate and Gel Press for monoprinting.

I can crochet, but I rarely do.

As with other crafters, I have tons of supplies. I also have die cutters, dies, embossing folders, and lots of cling and rubber stamps. Stickers you say? I have so, so many.

My daughters and I were lucky enough to take an in-person class from Tim Holtz (eep!); we love all of his stuff and his style.


-Tim Holtz's On-line Creative Chemistry 101/102/103 classes

-Yellow Daisy Art's Index Card A Day (ICAD), June 1-July 31, 61 days of arting.

-I am always swapping with someone via Instagram, here or Facebook, so it's on-going.

Favorite Music

I enjoy almost any form of music; rock and roll is my favorite, but I love country and gospel as well. Man, I do love a good quartet. I don't care for rap or techno. I have an odd attraction to Hawaiian music. The music isn't odd, but my attraction to it surprises me.

Favorite Television

I'm a Netflix junkie. I like to craft with it, playing and binge watching programs such as Charmed, Supernatural, Grimm, Once Upon A Time, The Murdoch Mysteries, Haven, Flash, Midsomer Murders, Republic of Doyle, The Detectorists, and just about anything British or Jane Austen. I don't care for blood and gore, but I must admit to being drawn into a few Netflix only series such as Jessica Jones and Daredevil. But I can only watch one or two episodes of those at a time. I like a mixture of comedy and drama.

Favorite Movies

Because my name is Dorothy, one of my favorite movies is The Wizard of Oz. I was lucky enough to meet several of the Munchkins and other Oz celebrities. In 2008, my husband and I went to Los Angeles and watched as the Munchkins were awarded their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Movies I'll watch again and again: How To Train Your Dragon, Galaxy Quest, Tinkerbell (animated), Overboard, all of Harry Potter (I am a Ravenclaw), Grease, Xanadu. There's more, but I just can't think of them.

Favorite Books

Besides Harry Potter, one of my favorites is The Mitford series by Jan Karon. I also am in the middle of reading The Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney (surprising because I don't care for creepy). My favorite type of books are those with a hint of the magical and fantastical.

Thank you for the absolutely darling twinchies you sent my way. In such a cute handmade card, no less. My mum's a card maker and I am always so impressed by people's ability to do so, I just have never been able to get into it.
