About Me

October 4th 2017. I'm back after 3 years. Wow, so excited! I recently (4/20) got married to the most amazing, beautiful, loving, kind man. I am blessed! So incredibly happy! And we just moved our 2 cats to Las Vegas from Vermont.

I am a 54 yo vegan with three awesome adult kids. I love animals and nature. I believe in kindness, compassion, integrity, and honesty. I love silly, dark, and twisted humor.

Favorite Things

Colors-greens and blues

Animals-cats (especially black) and sea turtles

Fantasy creatures



Nature-oceans and waterfalls, sea life and seashells

Hiking and exploring nature

Art history, art museums, street art, poetry


The moon

Yoga and meditation


I love to bake and create pastries.

Favorite Crafts

I love to try new things! And collect mixed-media crap. stencils, washi tape, rubber stamps, inks, ephemera-(Tim Holttz, 7 Gypsies, Art c, Recollections, Jane Davenport) fun yarn and fabric, maps, music sheet, duck tape

art journaling, ATC's, watercolor, painting, drawing, sewing, dotee dolls, art dol!s, inchies, prayer flags, and mixed media

Favorite Television

Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, House of Cards, Gotham, Shameless

Not so much...

I don't have much to add here as I appreciate the energy put into your art or craft.

Clowns, stickers, religious propaganda

graciepie49 rated for CC: Monochrome ATC-Red on Dec 20, 2017
Comment: (I'm sorry for my delay in getting this rating done.) Hi Susan :-) . . . I just adore your monochrome red ATC!! It is clever and cute and going into my collection of favorites. Thanks for your craftsmanship and time to make this! . . . . . I never grew up with snow so I can't commiserate with you for missing it, but I think you'll soon like the idea of a warmer and dryer winter. I feel that cold air is made so much worse when it full of moisture.
Response: You are so very welcome!
donetta rated for Winter Birds Swap on Dec 19, 2017
Comment: Susan, this is a very special swap envelope... very special indeed! Both ATCs are lovely, but the hand drawn cardinal is amazing! I so envy your skill, and I love that you generously shared it with me. And the extras! It's like you picked them from a special "Donetta" shopping list! Thank you for being an amazing swap partner!
Response: You are very welcome! I’m happy you enjoyed everything!
Comment: Oh Susan, I'm sorry I am rating so late :-( . . . I just lost track of the days on my 'to do' pile. . . . I think your "Heart Zen" ATC and matching envelope are really cute! Thank you :-) Also thanks very much for the ephemera bits. I hope I'll find good use for them. . . . How are you liking Vegas? I find that the winters aren't much different from what I knew as a kid in Pasadena except for MUCH less rain! Which is good because wet and cold aren't my favorite combination.
Response: You are so welcome Grace! And no worries. Vegas, hmm, not so much.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely ATC and extras.
Response: You are welcome!

Comment: Susan, thank you! First let me say the card won me over and then I opened it and found your wonderful Kandinsky Atc. You did a fantastic job with it. I choose something way easier! I can't draw...lol.
Response: Awww, thanks! His art is not easy to copy, so I thought the simpler the better.
