About Me

I married my best friend. While on our honeymoon, he grabbed 3-4 brochures from everywhere we went. On the third day, I asked him what he was doing with so many brochures and maps (he was also keeping parking stubs, trolley tickets, movie stubs, etc). His response was so simple..... "For our scrapbook".

I had never done a scrapbook before, and I had no idea where to begin. I started researching it online and put together a very nice scrapbook. I was surprised.

After 2 years, I found a scrapbook group in my area and I am now one of the teachers. I am there every Friday, and I teach the new members how to use their tools and the basics of scrap-booking.

I have personally moved on from basic scrap-booking and expanded my artistic talents. I specialize in Memory Books, Folded Books, Accordion Books, Tags, Bookmarks, and Cards.

I would love to start making ATC's and trading them. I believe it would be a great way to practice techniques on a smaller scale and to receive inspiration at the same time.

Things I like

The most important thing is: my favorite color is yellow.

I like turtles, fantasy, art, hot air balloons, Hello Kitty, fairies, roosters, daisies, older cartoons, vintage, snowmen, snowflakes, etc...

I have started collecting pins and smashed pennies from places I have been.

My favorite actor is Nicolas Cage. My favorite classic actress is Elizabeth Taylor. My favorite modern actress is Drew Barrymore.

I do not know what I like to receive the most yet...so help me find out and lets be creative.

Favorite Books

I love to read, but I do not always have the time for it. My favorite book has always been 'Great Expectations'. I read it as a child and fell in love with it. I try to read it at least one time every 2 years.

I prefer to read series, but I will read just about anything (including the back of shampoo bottles...lol).

If I like a movie, I will go buy the book. There is always so much more information in the books.

Favorite Movies

I am in love with the classics. Anything with Elizabeth Taylor is great. (The Taming of the Shrew was my favorite). I like Gone with the Wind, Auntie Mame, Yours, Mine and Ours (the original with Lucille Ball). These movies remind me of the times I would spend with my grandma.

I am not a 'chick flick' fan. I prefer action, drama and comedy. If it is a love story it had better be funny or action packed.

Steve Martin and Jerry Lewis are the best comedians of all time. Cinderfella and The Jerk are among my favorites.

I also like Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Making a Marvel Comic into a movie is NEVER a bad idea. LOL.

I am very easy to please.

Favorite Crafts

I want to collect all kinds of ATC's.

I have also recently joined post card swaps and I do not have a preference yet. So, if you have a lot of goofy "touristy" type of post cards from your city or state and don't know what to do with them...I would love them.

I love to make memory books.

I am also experimenting with smash-books. I have not figured it out yet...so if you have any ideas or advice, let me know. I may be too organized to "smash". UPDATE: I am still having trouble "smashing", but I am getting better.

I have just joined a quilters guild as of April 2013 I will be an official member. The first thing on my list, take a beginners course so I know what they are talking about.

Updates:

Wish List:

How to (smash / alter books / journal) magazines or books.

Playing Cards: I am collecting unique or unusual playing cards to make a crazy deck. I am just beginning, so any cards will help. Some crazy collections include: cartoon characters, walking dead/zombie, advertisements (M&M's, Coke, etc..), State, animals, I like it all.

I collect BOX TOPS for my local school. If you have some and do not know what to do with them, send them to me and I will put them to good use. Thank you.

Please do not send:

I love chocolate...but I live in Oklahoma, which means it can get from 110 to 115 in July and August. I will have an envelope full of melted chocolate. Please do not send anything that can melt in extreme heat ( candy, candles, etc..). Thank you very much.

POSTCARDS

Ok...I am in love with post cards. I love naked postcards from your state or country. If you are in the same state I am (Oklahoma), send one from your town or city. If you need Oklahoma postcards and would like to trade, message me. Have a great day.

If you are sending postcards in an envelope, I prefer some non-touristy post cards so that I may use them in other swaps.

PLEASE READ

PLEASE READ:

Within the last month I have had a few episodes with swaps. I received 2 empty envelopes. It was not the sender, the post office ripped the envelopes and the contents fell out. I also did not receive 3 postcards and 1 post card was shredded. They would have had to hold the strips down to read the address.

SO... When you receive a swap from me, it will be reinforced with packing tape on the edges (if it is an envelope) and over the address (if it is a postcard).

Please consider doing the same. Thank you.

Thanks for the PC with your replies to my "This or That" questions. You had a question mark on Canary or Goldfinch...To me a canary is bred as a captive creature and a goldfinch is wild and free. I too love yellow! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
