I joined Swap-Bot for the joy of crafting for others. I put a lot of thought and effort into my swaps with the hope it brings you the same joy I get from putting crafty things together for you. I read your profile and take notes in a journal so I can keep track of things to send you that are specifically related to your likes. I love to send happy mail that lifts your spirits and brightens your day.
I'm a crafter, mom of adult identical twin daughters and I've been married a very long time. I have a little rescue dog, 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 for that!
-I loved visiting England! I now am obsessed with Big Ben and all of England. One day I hope to go back and stay in Bath.
-Colors: I love them all, pink, purple, mermaid blues and greens, teal, red, pastels, just about anything goes, really.
-I like the beach/ocean, flora and fauna, butterflies, birds, dogs, animals, elephants, mermaids, Julie Nutting paper dolls, Art Impressions stamps, Stamping Bella, the mild side of steampunk, girly, eclectic 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, of course.
-I'm nerdy and eclectic, and I like for things to bring me happiness and joy.
-I don't care to receive anything edible. I don't like coffee, not even the smell of it (I love my tea, though). I'm not big on perfumey things like scented candles, bath bombs or other items with strong odors.
-I don't really care for the latest unicorn craze, things on the violent side of creepy, and anything having to do with horoscopes, ouija boards or tarot cards.
I am currently obsessed with learning about mixed media, watercoloring 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.
CHALLENGES I HAVE ENJOYED:
-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.
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.
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.
I love musicals! 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, Beauty and The Beast (latest one), 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.
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.
Please be patient, this will be updated with photos or clickable links as soon as I can figure it out.
